  • The show’s theme is loosely based on Truman Capote’s famous Black and White Ball in Manhattan in 1966.
Victoria Secret shows theme was based around Truman Capote's famous Black and White Ball in Manhattan in 1966.

 Victoria Secret models strutted down the runway wearing embroidered black side pumps with pinstripes, hearts, and studs, by British Footwear Designer Sophia Webster. This was the perfect combination of colorful, playful and feminine style of shoes to fit the VS 2014 fashion show. My favourite shoes worn by Taylor Swift is these rainbow-hued ostrich sandals, trimmed with silver leather, soft black suede and baby-blue feathers. Style this statement with a powder pink satin slip teamed with pink satin band black lace robe with fluffy pink peep toe shoes. Feathers and fur are a huge footwear trend right now, high street fashion trend is hot all because of Sophia Webster combined with the VS show. Now I cant wait to be inspired and apart of this upcoming trends, must put this on my christmas shopping list.

ITALY AMALFI COAST

It was a dream come true staying in Amalfi Coast for my 18th birthday this summer. We based ourselves in the local town of Amalfi purely because our hotel was right next to the beach and had the perfect view looking over looking the town. I couldn’t tell the difference between the colour of the ocean and sky while swimming in the afternoon. The pebble beaches were filled of vibrant beach towels and umbrellas, I could have spent my days sleeping away on the beach listening to the sounds of the waves. Not to mention my diet was based on only pasta and limonene flavored gelato. We also spend 3 days in a villa on the island of dreamy Capri. The main part of our stay was renting a private boat, which took us around the local sea caves including the Blue and White Grottos. After our amazing trip in Italy, my luggage was filled with souvenirs of limoncello (lemon alcohol) bottles and shot glasses - money well spent.

TRAVEL GUIDE: SINGAPORE


Singapore is well knows for its exotic foods, shopping and scenery. Singaporeans are simply obsessed with eating. For the best food, they will queue endlessly and eat at all hours. I am such a foodie and Singapore was on the top of my list. After graduating high school I traveled to Singapore to explore its rich culture. I stayed at The Raffles Hotel, in its intoxicating blend of luxury, history and colonial ambiance that no other hotel can match.


















The Raffles Hotel included 15 restaurants and bars, from the famous Long Bar, home of the Singapore Sling.
food guide
1. Carrot cake (chai tow kuay) - Its amazingly delicious. It is a white radish carrot cake with rice flour and grated radish, mixed and steamed into large slabs or cakes. These are chopped up in pieces finished with soy sauce, fish sauce, eggs, garlic and spring onions. It is available at many hawker centers.

2. Kaya toast - Kaya is a coconut custard jam, it is very sweet and very addictive.  When slathered onto thin slices of warm toast with ample butter, the sandwich makes your mouth water. Many locals have this for breakfast supplemented by two soft-boiled eggs with soy sauce and pepper. I bought about three large Kaya jams bottles to take back to HK, and I cant stop eating it.

3. BBQ chicken wings - I had BBQ chicken wings on my first night out in Singapore, I guess you can say chicken wings are boring but in many a hawker stalls you will see rows of chicken wings glistening and turning on a roasting spit. Singaporeans love ordering these wings as a side dish, frequently as a large plate to share among family and friends. Best eaten with a garlic chili dip.













restaurants
KU DE TA - has been one of my favorite restaurants since I was very young, I have gone to the KU DE TA in Bail a while ago and it blew my mind. KU DE TA is also situated above the landmark deck of Marina Bay Sands. KU DE TA is a fusion of elegant style, cutting-edge design and peerless standards. Here are a few things I suggest you ordering at KU DE TA.

1. Spicy tuna roll - maguro tuna, asparagus, spicy dressing
2. edamame - maldon salt
3. steamed halibut - yamagobo, kombu, pak choy
4. beef tenderloin - saikyo miso, chilli jam glaze
5. california roll - alaskan crab, avocado, cucumber



 Singapore's Chinatown is an ethnic neighborhood featuring distinctly Chinese cultural elements and a historically concentrated ethnic Chinese population. When visiting Chinatown it felt like I was at home, I enjoyed taking photographs of the lanterns and the bright color streets.
