Hello lovelies, 

Though I have been doing more photography lately, I have not abandoned my initial agenda when I created this blog. I'll still be posting stuff about outfits, reviews, ads & sponsorships but I'll also wanna include my work as well. Since I don't consider myself as a fashion blogger, I pretty much blog about anything and everything... because I can.

Today's post is solely dedicated to the one and only, MotelRocks. MotelRocks, also known as Motel, is a British fashion label established in the late 90's. I'm sure a lot of you have already heard of Motel since they are renowned for their unique prints and sleek silhouettes. Popular retailers such as Topshop, NastyGal & ASOS carry this versatile label that free spirited and eclectic. Their garments are also sometimes handprinted with care making their details extremely delicate and precise. 

A little about my styling - Singapore's weather has not been very forgiving lately therefore I couldn't layer as much as I liked to. I threw on a chiffon kimono to give this look a nicer flow. I intended to make this look a lot darker than it already is, so I added a floppy hat and some really chunky buckled sandals. To have a balance in hardware, I paired my gold rim shades with some gold stacked necklaces & rings, while matching my silver buckled sandals with my silver plate backpack. They say you only can wear either one, but rules are meant to be broken. 

Before you go, make sure to check out their new Spring Summer 2015 collection video & perhaps, hop on to their website and do some shopping!!!

Hello! Here comes another update! This February, I got myself a new lens, which was the basic of the basics of every photographer. Having good and expensive lenses does not guarantee quality in photos. Obviously if you have a Canon 5D mark III and a EF 24-70mm f/2.8L you're definitely gonna produce high definition photos. But that doesn't mean you'll have good composition, good angles, good subjects of interest, etc; which would not be easily altered during post processing.... but that's none of my business isn't it?

Our first client of the year was shopkaizo and I must say it was a joy working with these two pretty girls. Although onlineshop photography was not our first choice, being able to change the stereotype of blogshop photography feels great. Often you've seen those BS lookbooks & editorials, some looked great while some were terrible. That being said, we intend to make more blogsjops to have better editorials and lookbooks to show for their customers because I believe that good sales also starts from the first impression. Everyone wants to see how the outfits will look like with good photography (there is no less prideful way to say this). But I don't think we're at our best yet, so we really want to practice more. Spread the shameless words and let us know if you're interested in hiring us XD.

Disclaimer: It is not in my intention to offend anyone or to harm the reputation of good & humble photographers. We definitely need more work but I don't believe we have no standards.

Yay! It's been awhile but I've been really busy from work. I'm doing a little photography now with my parter Nicole under the pseudonym juxju+nicolengaise, basically just our insta names except I eliminated my "_". This was the first photoshoot I've done by myself with the help of my partner. The rest of the photography we did are often done together with either one camera with different lenses or two cameras. We do everything together from taking snaps, choosing the best shots, post processing and looking out for clients. So far we have done one commissioned work and we absolutely loved it! Will post more on that soon.
