Feature in Her World Singapore (August 2017 issue) 

I'm in a magazine! It's my first feature and I was so excited about it that I started looking for copies of it on newsstands starting on 31 July - I must have gone to at least 5 different places in one night - only to find it available on 2 August. 

 

I will be sharing the online article with you once it comes out. For now, head to your newsstands to get your copy of Her World (August issue)! 

Here are the shots from the photoshoot:

 

This is the Lou Swing Dress from bluebelle (shopbluebelle.com), which is a Singaporean label that has amazing original reproduction 1950's-inspired designs!
 

This yellow dress is an authentic vintage piece from the 1950s that I love so much. I'd put on a bit of weight and couldn't breathe in this but I managed to squeeze into it for this shoot hahaha.

Noise Music Mentorship final concert and 2017 updates 

Hi there!

I have officially started a blog! The Glamour Vintage Songbird Diaries are meant for you to know more about me beyond my music. It will chronicle highlights in my music career, business, and daily life, covering topics ranging from songwriting to vintage beauty and style, and even some nuggets of wisdom I pick up along the way! Enjoy your time here. 
 

UPCOMING SHOW ALERT

As you might know, I've been under the mentorship of Sara Wee (of Singaporean band 53A) for the past few months as mentee in the National Arts Council's Noise Music Mentorship Programme. A little bit of background information:
