A Visit To Sisteron

After visiting many lavender and sunflower fields on our first day, we decided to spend our second day in the south of France by driving to this beautiful city called Sisteron.

Tomorrow we'll be heading back to Lausanne already but these past two days have been sooooo muuchhhh fun I'm so grateful we made this short trip happen! Yay! :)

Hello Again, Provence! :)

I'm not sure who came up with the idea first, buuuuut our lil' family ended up having a road trip to the south of France together with Tania, Rama and Nandy hahah! We rented a car and drove all the way to Provence to catch sunsets, sunrises, and of course, the beautiful fields of lavender and sunflowers scattered all over the region.

How To Be Confident With Your Personal Style?

Fashion is simply a matter of self-expression that is truly personal. What matters the most is your relationship with the people around you. If you are kind and have good thoughts about other people, you will feel light and confident and cannot be bothered by what you or other people wear. You just care about being nice to other people. So it really doesn't matter whether you like to dress up in black or white or rainbow colors. It's the heart that counts.

Chasing Sunflowers

Summer means I get super tanned here in Switzerland LOL, but most importantly, sunflower fields are in full bloom! S and I have been driving around just to pass by the many beautiful sunflower fields around, and today I managed to take some pics. They are sooooooo pretty! :)

Welcoming My First (Fancy) Crocs

To be honest, these Balenciaga crocs platforms were a love-at-first-sight for me. The moment I saw these ridiculous yet somehow adorable sandals on the runway and heard they were already available for purchase, I directly went online to purchase them but sadly they were immediately sold out. Sad news for me.

Over time, I started reading people's review and comments about them and I sort of developed some hesitation to get them because 1) their reviews were 100% awful and mean, 2) they judge people who actually buy them. But seriously though, why so judgmental? Sigh.

Some people like me just see beauty in "ugly" things, and people like "us" can detect and appreciate "art" in even the weirdest objects. And guess what: people like us don't judge other people's taste. That's because our minds are so free and fun, we love the concept of individuality and just being honest about what we love and what we don't without the pressure of society. Yet on the contrary, the other group of people will say things like, "those are fugly", "never in my life will I befriend anyone wearing that", "don't let 'fashion' fool you", "anyone who wears that is stupid". It might seem like simple remarks that were written in 3 seconds without even thinking much, but truthfully, by writing that, it just shows how ignorant and judgemental you are about other people who share different preferences than yours.

If you don't like it, just don't buy it.

Be nice to things you don't or can't understand.

Be nice to people who are not your cup of tea.

Be nice to people who love things that are not your cup of tea.

Just be nice in general.

And hey, I finally got them! Yayyyyyyyyyyyy! :)

Hello, To To To Torino!

The day(s) I have been sooooooo nervous about have arrived (and finally ended)! Hahah!

So, Schmiley Mo showcased in Torino Fashion Week just last Sunday, and this was what have been on my mind constantly as I try to sort out everything in my head by myself. The logistics, the luggage, the train ride, the hotel, the fitting session, the ironing and steaming, the styling, the line-up board, the backstage last-minute preparations...I just had to make sure that everything was well-planned to minimize any chaos, panic or even disaster. BUUUUUUT IT WAS ALLLL GOOODDDD OMGGGG ALHAMDULILLAH. I had Tania to come along with me and help me, and I met many friendly people who were also so helpful. Allah is kind. Our Schmiley Mo fashion show went well too so I am sooooo happyyyyy. We did it, team! We did Italy! Woohoooo! Schmiley Mo will turn 2 this end of year and I can't believe our journey has been extremely exciting (and global!) in such a short time. I love my job. I love my team. Here's to more, better, bigger milestones! *cheers*

Will share more about the fashion show itself in a separate post. Yayyyyyy! :)
