SOUL SEARCHING

2 months have passed - literally 2 months - since I've written a blog post. You all must be wondering why the silence and well I've been contemplating about what next to do in my life. Some may call it "quarter life crisis"; I simply call it soul searching. I'm coming at a crossroads - and to a certain extent I guess I've been pondering about my next move. Singapore has been home for about 5 years now and I can't complain about my life here. Amazing isn't enough to capture the life I've led and am leading here. Singapore is a nice little bubble of a city to stay in and I've fallen into a comfortable routine of sorts - to the extent that I feel like I've found "home" - but deep down I've always known that I'm looking for something still. Suffice to say my travels the past few months - Hong Kong and New York of late - have shed some light on where I want to be next or even maybe what I want to do next. And it has been enlightening. So I guess I HAVE been soul searching. Changes to be made all around - even my blog is up for a face-lift in the next few weeks so do watch out for that - and I am ecstatic. Of course you'll have to watch out for my posts on my Hong Kong and New York trips - I've seen so much and had so much fun that it's sad I haven't written on the go. But experiencing the cities and spending time with the people I was with was more important, rather than focusing on what to write about. So, you guys'll have to make do with throwback posts ;)

Anyhow, change is coming - and I am beyond excited! Being impatient is a detriment at this point so I'll have to watch my impulsiveness but I know all these change(s) are for the best and I'll get there. For now - do watch this space!!

HERMES SCARF EXHIBIT

A month or 2 ago, Hermés had an exhibit showcasing a collection of their infamous scarves and boy did I want me some of them! Gorgeous silk, unique and striking patterns - sheer art in motion. Makes you want to have one of your own. My favorite has got to be that floral print with the blue and white border - just gorgeous! What's yours?

LONG LIVE SPORT!

These videos are just too adorable not to feature. Check out the latest campaign of Hermés featuring some of their beloved fashion pieces. J'adore!! [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpuIEH8sh48&feature=player_profilepage]

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to visit the Hermes Gift of Time Exhibit located at the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station here in Singapore. What do I think about it you might ask - magical...simply magical. The exhibit is a short journey around a space that is basically a circular room, with installations that depict the history of Hermes in a dreamlike quality, as crafted by American artist Hilton McConnico, who is a long-time collaborator of the brand. It's evident in the photos that you see below and it was simply inspiring to say the least. Definitely a must see, so I'd highly advice visiting it while you can before it heads back to France post the 12th of August. More photos on the next page!

And of course I couldn't avoid doing a mini-shoot in the railway station. It was too beautiful a place to pass up the opportunity on!

a.Musing Photo Collage # 1: ADIEU in WHITE & GOLD

Beginning today, I will be expanding a.Musings not just by sharing key highlights/activities in my life but to share as well inspirations that I will have every day through photo collages. And what better way to kick-things off with the team away day we had today.

It's sort of bittersweet really - as we bid adieu to our luxury girl in the team. She's brought in beauty into the team - inside & out - and we will truly miss her. To celebrate things in true luxury, we had a white & gold yacht day. Roaming around the waters of Singapore in the good company of friends & colleagues. Such is living the life of luxury. Anyways, we'll miss you girl! Have fun in the Big Apple and I'm sure we'll be seeing each other sooner rather than later!

HERMES TOURBILLON BRACELETS

In celebration of 10 years of luxury online shopping, Hermés has released a special surprise for it's online patrons - the Tourbillon Bracelets. Retailing for USD115 a pop, it's made out of silk with the "Fleurs Indiennes" print, and for something that's a special edition piece, the price definitely makes it worth the investment. It also comes attached with a silver & palladium plated horse medallion, which I think is a cute addition to it! This was actually one of the highlights of my afternoon, when I received a couple of the orange boxes sent across by a friend from the US, containing 2 of these lovelies. Which of the 2 you might ask, you'll have to tune into my blog and see when I wear them ;)
