Have you guys seen this? 😞
Chanced upon @jojobeans' IG stories and noticed this…and then we both started talking about backing up and finding alternative platforms, which is making me so….sad?
I seldom get attached to social media, so this is really something new.
I have no idea if I will continue to post if Dayre is gone, but so far, I've really been enjoying sharing my thoughts and buys with you guys.
I'm pretty active on IG so if you want updates (if Dayre goes kaput…)
I'll be on IG at the same username, braintango!
Anyway, that aside, haha, these #obc angpaos are making my first year of official angpao giving so much better 😂
I was telling my mum that this year she can only use our angpaos because, #supportyourdaughter
But aiya, these are the cutest la! I designed them and patterned them so it's really quite a dream come true.
There are also rose gold quotes under the flap so your recipient gets a dose of body positivity ✨👌
I'm really bad at taking photos, but the text on the angpaos are rose gold. ✨✨✨
And they are made of thick cardstock. 😅 I thought they were postcards when I first saw them 😅
Included some quotes under the flap as a surprise to the receiver cos with all that human interaction during CNY it's easy to start believing some of the unsolicited comments from both friends and family.
"Wah so fat now ah!" Or "Wah so skinny never eat is it"
I'd like to think people open these in the privacy of their room so the messages help with calming their thoughts towards their bodies. ✨
Btw, these are available in a set of 6, 3 designs each, with every purchase of $50! ✨
In case you're thinking of purchasing to get the angpaos, we just launched a new collection yesterday with this gorgeous piece ✨
It's the boho midi design! Unlined, but so perfect when paired with nipple covers!
Um, now we can move on to things that really matter, like shoes
Firstly, I'd like to say that my feet are prudes 😂 I'm as prudish with my shoes as I am with my bags 😂
I think I make up for it by being extremely whatever with my make up and my clothes 😂
But my mum has spoilt my feet since young because she believes in buying expensive and good shoes that can last long and are super comfy.
For a long time, I wore only custom made leather shoes (I know…so spoilt) and if I bought pretty, cheap shoes, I never wore than more than twice.
My feet just disagree with them and they sweat and stink. So when I found Melissa's I was so happy!
Finally, my feet don't stink! But of course, they weren't as comfy as my leather ones and I was very sad when my mum threw away an old pair of my leather Mary Janes. 😞
And then recently mules have come into fashion, and despite thinking that it looks just slightly weird, I've been intrigued.
Shopping on Taobao has also TRAPPED ME. 😞 So here are some of my picks (btw I'm still shopping for clothes so I might drop some links here also 😂 I'm hoping my dad will lug them back for me 😂)
First up, I realised I'm gravitating towards nude pink colours when I used to dislike them? 😅
I think hanging out with @tshihhwee brought out the millennial in me. I almost got a millenial pink g shock until reality hit me in the face and I realised it would get dirty SOOOO quickly.
Ok but I digress. Aren't these shoes just beautiful? All my listings are real leather shoes so they aren't cheap (like $10 kind)
At 185rmb these are expensive for Taobao standards, but cheap if they are real leather! Mine used to cost about 500-800rmb and they would trace my feet to custom make 😂
My feel are huge so I'm usually hesitant to get shoes from Taobao, but mules have no heel part so…should be more forgiving?

(Lazy to shortlink 😂)
The Matt black ones are so nice too! I like the brown sole.
Btw do you see the kinfolk magazine in the background? 😂😂 Taobao sells sheets of paper with kinfolk coverpages specifically to use for flatlays. 😂 It's not a real magazine 😂
Next up? Adding more yellow into my life with these babies!
Haha somehow a lot of the mules I've seen on Dayre are very masculine but I'm happy to have found more feminine and flirty designs! ♥️
These are made of pig skin! Around 136rmb so it's damn worth it.
Now I want them in both colours. HELP?????

A slightly less playful, more work appropriate pair?
I'm usually very careful when buying shoes or dresses with metal embellishments cos I'm scared they will rust and then destroy the whole shoe.
But these look pretty ok, plus real leather and since they aren't glued on (glue tends to turn yellow) I think can try?
Not my first choice tho! But CAN U TELL THE PATTERN? nudish pink again.
I think I just have a thing for nude pink shoes.
And….more pink shoes!
Back from the OBC flea and updating 😂
Anyway, link for this is here!

Everytime I shop on taobao, I add about 20 listings to cart then narrow down my choices from there 😂
Which is why I post a lot of stuff but only end up getting 1-2.
Just share lor! Some of them I'm happy to own, but life throws us curve balls like, not having unlimited amounts of money 😂
This design also seems to be pretty popular on Taobao and a classic!
But abit too………………staple haha for me! I quite like unique looking pieces.
But the heart on the sole tho! So cute la. So common but undoubtedly cute. ✨
Sparkly ones too!
I'm quite skeptical about the leather tho because even tho they claim they use pig skin (so comfy!), the price is a little too low at 76rmb.
So buy at your own discretion ok! I just sharing, but I don't think I'll be getting this pair despite the irresistible heart ♥️

Hello gorgeous! ✨✨
What's with me and yellow shoes!!! Haha but this is so cute, the mustard yellow plus the rippled edges.
I'm a little sad that the sole isn't leather (synthetic) but I guess…………it's only $20?
They have 1000 reviews ok! And most of them look gorgeous so I'm quite sold.
But they also have it in timeless black.
Why ah! Why you making life so difficult for me!!!!
Yellow or black? I'm quite keen on black now that I'm more or less certain carting out the yellow shoes from above,
But…..the mustard is….gorg???? 😞😂

Anyway, a good pair of shoes helps you walk a long distance and keeps your feet healthy!
My mum has corns and bunions on her feet from a time where she couldn't afford comfortable and quality shoes and she's sad about it until today.
Nowadays, she splurges on shoes, and it's truly one of her few indulgences. Her scholl sandals are SO UGLY but she loves them so much??
Everytime she buys a new pair (hundreds of dollars one leh), she will parade around the house 😂
And she always threatens to throw out all the shoes I buy from Taobao and from cotton on cos she cannot stand the sight of cheap shoes that hurt my feet.
Come to think of it…alot of my mum's choices in life have affected mine. 😂 don't realise it until I churn them out into words 😂
But yes! Take care of your feet! 👌 They are important and they take you places!
After a long day at flea, I'd just like to make a note here to remind myself that,
In this life, it is impossible to please everyone and no matter how much of a saint you are, there will be people out there who will search for bones in your plate of tofu.
(This is not triggered by the flea, but by life 😂)
So, if someone comes and takes their chopsticks and smashes your tofu while looking for bones.
And when they can't find anything, they madly wave their chopsticks around, yelling about how they found an (invisible) bone,
You know what you do?
You pick up that plate of tofu, and you….
Smash it in their face
Kidding. You take that plate of tofu and you eat it la! What else!
But in all seriousness, it's impossible to please everyone and there will always be people out there too bitter with their lives to let others live theirs.
Oh well, smashed tofu or not,
still tastes pretty damn great!
