Flea Rider at Wavehouse!

Hello guys!

We're back from our virgin flea and seriously, dead beat. Though the crowd was really slow moving but we had a lot of fun ;)

We were rather early so we picked quite a good spot. We had some shade hahahaha. The weather was perfect, not a single tinge of grey clouds!

You can see more photos taken at the flea at our fanpage!
Be a fan and be updated with promotions ;)

As part of The Urban Diary, we draw inspiration from people we meet and see almost anywhere! Today at the flea, we met a couple of interesting people who had a wicked sense of style which we're totally diggin'.

Summer is all about colors and showing enough skin.

Isn't this what summer's all about? The flora halter dress and the big hat! Hahaha, we love how yellow compliments Phyllis' skin color and her megawatt smile.

I'm totally diggin' Gillian's pink shorts! Whoever said denim has to be blue? She was literally shining today - the pink, purple and silver sequins on her tank top really gave her the shine. We adore that she completed her outfit with a silver tote bag which was really cute. When's the best time to put on flip flops? SUMMER!

We like how this outfit looks so comfortable yet chic. It is also very easy to put together! Not everybody can pull off a Union Jack print though... But girl, we love those hot pink shade. :P You know, I heard plasters are used to accessorize.. hahahah, I call it a STYLE BUMP!

Not everybody's comfortable with big prints or bright colors - It's okay to stick to black but how can you make black look hot this summer instead of boOoooring?

Rompers are so in right now. I like the frilly sleeves, so girlie and cute. But what I really, really like is those pair of uber chic summer sandals! You know, what shoes you wear tells a lot about you as a person. I always recommend friends to invest in a good pair of sandals that's versatile enough for most outfits. You should too!

Fedora hat, checked. Cute shorts with zipped side pockets, checked. Studded summer sandals, checked! Check out Sunny's feather dangly earrings too.. I'm loving them! Yes, it does seem a little overdressed for the beach but you know, she just added a little glam and glitter to her outfit and there's nothing wrong with it!

Tell us which is your favorite outfit and why by commenting and you might just walk away with one pretty summer frock ON US. :P

Alright guys, till next time! Don't forget to check out our store for pretty summer frocks! We've gotta clear them all out before we bring in more stuff!

Thank you for all the support at the flea and thank you for our friends who came down!

Movie: Going the Distance

Again, feeling very lucky, J-SON gave us 2 free tickets to the preview of Going the Distance at Iluma, Bugis. (Hahaha, what's with me and that place! You can't stop destiny, huh.)

Watch trailer here:

If you're keen to find out what's the movie about, read on! (I'm giving you a choice to not let me spoil it for you, ok!)

In a nutshell, "Going the Distance" is about a couple dealing the ups and downs of a long distance relationship. Tadah! Not very hard to guess, huh? You probably have already guessed. Although the plot is extremely predictable, I actually enjoyed it very much.

As usual, Drew Barrymore always outdo herself in any role given to her. I'm actually very surprised that it didn't make my stomach flip seeing this real-life couple snogging each other on the big screen. Both of them gave a genuine performance. I had my eye on Justin Long after "He's just not that into you" and I am sold after "Going the Distance". I like how he's so charming in the boy-next-door kinda way. (is there even such a thing?!) If it was anyone else in his place, it probably wouldn't have delivered as well.


My favorite scene has to be towards the end when Justin Long and Drew Barrymore had to break up because he realized that he couldn't stop her from having her dreams by making her move to NY with him. As they were at the airport, when he's about to check in, they decided to sit for awhile just to talk; and Barrymore sat down with one of her legs up hidden under her other thigh showing her nervousness and anxiety that they might never meet again. That for me was real and undeniably heart cringing. (I was actually holding back my tears HURHURHUR)

Meeting someone random at a bar, hitting it off almost straight away and then being crazily in love is hard to come by. But you know, these things do happen that's why people write about it and make them into movies. It made me question: How far would you GO the distance for someone you love? Especially when you're unsure about the future and unsure if this is all worth it? I bet you can't answer me right now.

What I know is - When you do meet that special someone, you'll go miles and miles for him/her and you'll never know when to stop because your heart won't let you.

I hope my special someone would go the distance for me, someday. It's ok to walk miles for people you love, even if they break your heart in the end.. 1 thing's for sure, you've already left footprints in their lives and their hearts.

Movie: HUSH

I was very lucky to be invited to HUSH's gala premier at Iluma! I didn't manage to take ANY pictures because I forgot I brought my camera but anyway. Here's a synopsis of what HUSH's all about:

Alice (Evelyn Maria Ng), unsure about her sexuality, is trapped between passion and moral between her family and friends. She frequently comes home late for dinner with her widower father (Vincent Tee) and 2 younger sisters (Janice Yeo and Cassevonrie Chia) due to her overtime at work. This makes her father very upset as he has made the daily family dinner compulsory and sees it as the only way to hold the family together. However, beneath the facade of kinship lie dark secrets and complex emotions ready to explode anytime, when keeping things hush may no longer be the way out.

View trailer here:

It was a very.. provocative film, I must say. Apart from all the bed scenes, it was quite mind-fuck in some ways for me. Secrets are very dangerous things. Which is why some things are best unsaid. It ended quite abruptly for me. I wasn't sure what to feel at the end of it. I think we had our picture taken at the gala! Let me search for it and I'll post it up.

Do show your support for local talents and local production. I'm very proud that Jeremiah, the director, decided to share this fantastic film with everyone after 3 years. Thank you for having me there!

Anyway, on a side note, TUD is going be part of Flea Rider at Wavehouse on Saturday. You'll see items sold on our site so please come say hi if you're there!

All about DENIM

I've a lot of troubles with Denim. Mostly because I don't know how to pair them. I remember when I was really little, my mom used to dress me up with Denim on DENIM! Gasps. I know right... double denim... It is one of the worst fashion crime I'm not willing to forgive my mother for making me commit.

But guess what - DOUBLE DENIM IS BACK. Now let's commit some crimes.
