SHINE Youth Festival 2013, #FreeYourYou
Hey guys! As you all know, some of us were invited to join in the fun for this year’s Shine Youth Festival, a youth initiated festival held at *SCAPE!
It is organized by the National Youth Council (NYC) with the aim to offer youths’ like us, a platform to speak up and let our voices be heard and respected.
Besides having a good time catching up with one another and hearing what other youths had to say, I personally enjoyed the performances. I never knew that our very own youths in Singapore are sooooo talented!
More on this later ;)
One of the highlights of the festival for me, was grabbing a picture with the super adorable Mr. Potato! He was kinda like a star; everyone was swarming around him asking for a picture.
Glad I was one of the first to get it, hehehe.
With Naomi and Lydia^^
We were spamming photos while waiting for the next performer to go on stage!
Thanks for this awesome picture Tyler!
Taken when we were all happily watching one of the great performances^^
It felt very heartwarming seeing so many youths come out of their homes to celebrate this festival together. That just goes to show how passionate everyone really was about SHINE Youth Festival.
I felt like a proud family member when I saw how everyone put in so much effort to make the festival a successful one. There were so many happy faces around that made me smile too J
And would you just check out these drawings!!!
Aren’t they amazing? Some youths actually drew them FREE HAND using nothing but markers. That is what you call talent and lots of patience.
And all of us Gushers that day! <3

The festival ended well with performances from various really talented local artists. I truly enjoyed every bit of it and I was actually really proud of how much talent the following youths have. In fact, I wished I could sing as well as them too!
Check out The Huckleberry Friends!!
They are a band of 3 actually but one was under the weather, and only two were present. But that didn’t affect their performance at all!!! It was only my first time hearing them and I fell deeply in love with both of their voices. You should check them out too if you love nice soothing melody tunes from the acoustic guitar.
Next up was Clarence Liew!
He has got the charming “boy-next-door” look, and best part of it is he even sounds like one! He sure swept every girl off their feet with his singing, performing tunes like suit & tie by Justine Timberlake, I won’t give up by Jason mraz and many more!
Last but not least, upcoming band, The Sam Willows performed.
This was my second time hearing them live and I must say they are one band that everyone should keep an eye out for. They might just make it real big. Some people say that it hurts to watch them cause they look so good too. HAHA, why don’t you be the judge^^

1) Twirling Pastels
"We just launched and you will be able to find absolutely alluring and gorgeous apparels from this collection! With the absolutely high quality of handpicked items, you can expect absolutely reasonable prices for this collection! This collection is definitely not to be missed!"
I couldn't agree more with TWP!! They have finally launched C24 and you wouldn't wanna miss it! Each and every one of their collections are great but you can expect even more awesome-ness in their newly launched collection. Without further ado, here are my picks!^^
Navy Tribal Romper
"We love this casual piece of romper and how its material is absolutely alluring! We can't emphasize on how much we love the pretty prints so we brought it in 2 colors! Loving the casual yet pretty romper <3 There's a tie at the front so that girls with small waists can adjust it to their liking! Straps are also adjustable :)"
I absolutely LOVE this romper. It is ultra comfortable and the tribal prints just look exceptionally good in navy blue! It works super well with my red lippy and hat doesn't it? This is what i would call "effortlessly chic!"
Tube Floral Tunic
"This tube tunic has one of the prettiest cutting ever! With yellow being its base color, it gives off a sunshine and refreshing feeling! This tube tunic comes with a pair of in-sewn padding and a side zipper for easy wearing! We love how it is non-sheer at the bust area and sheer at the bottom, adds a hint of playfulness <3"
Next, i picked something really girly and summery!!! Its the tube floral tunic top/dress! Firstly, I have grown to love wearing yellow, its just such a happy color. I also love the material of this piece, super lightweight and comfy! Great for some summer-lovin'!

2) The Trefle
If you're that sweet girl-next-door, The Trefle might be the best place for you to shop at! They offer sweet and lovely apparels at such affordable prices. What to look out for in their latest collection? My take would be on the super adorable floral shorts! Comes in lots of colors too!
Let me show you my picks ;)
Garden Floral Shorts
The perfect summer must have item is here!!! Every girl needs a good pair of floral shorts for the season and you can get yours from The Trefle! It comes in 8 different designs and colors. I am certain that you won't be able to decide which to pick! hehehehe. My pick is #2!! It fits me really well and its stretchy too! So you don't have to worry about it being too tight.
Crochet Cropped Off Shoulder Top
Next, I went with the Crochet Off Shoulder Top! Its super sweet isn't it? I love how the off shoulder sleeves doesn't come up or fall down easily. It stays where it should and I feel really comfy in it too!! Works great with the floral shorts or just plain denim jeans or shorts too.
Here's something special about shopping with The Trefle!!!^^
