Going back to work in an office has been a lot of fun in many ways. I’ve definitely enjoyed "dressing up” which for me means a full face of make-up, work clothes, and some accessories.

Make-up includes:

  • Sun block
  • Concealer
  • Liquid foundation
  • Powder
  • Blush
  • Eye shadow
  • Eye liner
  • Mascara
  • Lipstick/gloss

Most of my clothes come from Marks & Spencer because it’s one of the few stores in Singapore that carry my size (larger than the average Singapore woman but smaller than the average American woman). Luckily, they’re a little more stylish than they used to be 10+ years ago so I don’t feel totally mumsy. When we lived in London, I would have only bought basics at M&S and the rest at Kew.

Today I played around with a couple of freshwater pearl necklaces my mom gave me. They’re a little too short to fit around my thick neck but luckily for me, they fit perfectly as bracelets! From this I guess you can infer that my wrist is half the circumference of a skinny woman’s neck. :P

What do you wear for work?
