New York Day 4 (SunSilk Style Studio) - A Big Thank You X Adverts- Montrose Desires, Xhysteria, Wardrobe Mess

"Start spreading the news , I am leaving today.  I want to be a part of it , New York, New York!"

Can't believe it's already been 2 months since my very memorable trip to New York.
Oh how I miss it so much... I can't even believe I was there for a bit. 
You can read about it all here: 

I have kinda forgotten to end off the whole story actually, *oops!*.. I've been rather busy ever since I came back, kinda got me more deals then ever. But I'm not gonna end off everything without a HUGE thank you post to everyone who made the trip possible leaving me wanting more of New York.

So here's how my last night in NYC went.. *sobs sobs*...
We were brought to The Spotted Pig
314 W. 11th St @ Greenwich Street New York, NY 10014.
It's such a lovely cosy little restaurant/bar which made it an even lovelier way to end the whole trip.
Can you spot Anny? hehehehe
Thanks to this girl who walked the whole of 5th Ave in the cold with me the very next morning just to find Urban Outfitters. It paid off well cause Fai Fai loved his gifts!!
Many thanks to Sherry, the only other girl from South East Asia that kept making me miss home on the very first day^^
It was a great evening, everyone was just enjoying themselves, having a good laugh and drinking away. But I wasn't allowed to drink since I am considered underage in New York. hahaha. Well, I didn't wanna drink anyway, I was enjoying the FOOD most of the time. HAHAHA
I don't exactly know what these are... but they were DELICIOUS!!
CAUGHT: SunSilk hair expert, Thomas Taw's funny face.
Tori giving a final toast to everyone. I still remember the very day when I was told that she was gonna be in charge in NYC. I remembered going down to finding a picture of her so that I know who to look out for. hahaha. 
Our wonderful wonderful wonderful photographer Anna Wolf joining in. They were so adorable!
And that was it...
Everyone headed back to our rooms and I slept like a log. 
After another excruciating 19/20 hours flight back to Singapore, I found myself in the arms of my loved ones again! FINALLY!!! (not that I dreaded being in NYC) but the feeling of reuniting with the people who you grew up seeing everyday is just... really really nice :)
And I have learnt from my trip to appreciate my family and my loved ones. Thank you to my parents who trusted me and believed in me that i can do anything i want to. Without your constant support, i wouldn't be who i am today.

Mummy and Daddy:)
(sorry for the unglam Art Friend bag I was carrying, my homework was in there)
So do you think I look more like my mother or father??
And it was such a joy finally seeing and holding my Fai Fai in my arms again... and smelling him too. I missed him so much everyday when I was in NYC and I wished he'd experienced it with me too. Maybe that way i wouldn't have gotten cheated on the first day too. hahaha. 

But i learnt a lot being on my own anyway, i guess if he had came, I wouldn't be as independent and confident as i am now.
But there wasn't any moment in New York where I didn't think of him at all. Everything I did or saw or heard or tasted or felt, i wished he was beside me too. 
Every day that ended when i was away never failed to end with a Skype video call with my love. While I was getting ready for bed, his day had just begun in Singapore. hahaha
The only sad thing was he had to be in the office so we couldn't talk at all, and i couldn't hear his voice. SO SAD RIGHT!!! :(
Thank you my dear boy for also trusting me and letting me go without worrying about anything. The trip was pretty last minute and yet you were so patient, understanding and supportive about it. 
How to find another guy like youuu?!?!?! YOU ARE MINE. 

I will never forget my very unexpected New York trip, it was such a great experience and it made me realize that anything is possible. I mean I really never ever had to thought of going somewhere to far away on my own. But I did and that changed my life. It definitely changed my attitude towards life. I have become so much more optimistic and motivated in doing anything ever since i came back. Maybe its true what they say, "Once a year, go somewhere you've never been before.."

So many thanks to Golin Harris, Unilever, Salt London, Sunsilk for choosing me and making it all happen. I am so honored to be representing my country and putting my face forward amidst all the other beautiful bloggers. 

Thank you personally to Priscilla and Tiffany who assured me that the event was for real and guiding me with what to expect and what to bring etc. Thank you to Louise, Tori, Maria and Jamie who looked after all of us in NYC and made sure we had a lot of fun. Thank you to all the wonderful SunSilk Hair experts for making us feel so welcomed and sharing with us your advices and tips. Thank you Yuko, you're awesome!!! Hope to see you again in future^^ Dr. Francesca, you are amazing!! Thank you to Anna Wolf for making us all feel so comfortable and natural infront of the camera as well, it was such a joy working with you. Thank you to EVERYONE who had a part in this. From the make up artists, to the manicurists, to the very efficient and friendly bell boy at Dream Downtown Hotel... just basically everyone I met during my stay in NYC. 

I will be back again over the next few years to come. This time with my dearest Fai <3

Well, this isn't exactly a dress, its kinda more like a romper which makes it a lot more comfortable!! It comes in yellow too but I obviously chose pink! hehehe. It's super sweet isn't it. Great for an outdoor adventure:)

Knotted Dress (White)
These knotted dresses are just SO IN!!! I've always wanted one and i finally got mine in my all time favorite color- White! I always thought this dress is super NastyGal inspired and it is definitely a MUST HAVE in my closet.

I was also given an additional item, the...
Eyelet Babydoll Top (Black)
I love how the straps are adjustable by tying your own knots or ribbons. It is super comfy and goes well with a pair of denim shorts. Maybe I'll pair this outfit with boots to rock it up a little :)
