Vanity Trove - Mobile App

I'm sure most of you here must have heard of the brand, Vanity Trove and their personalized sampling box!
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to the launch party of their new social media platform!
It is developed to help women share their beauty regime and fashion styles to family & friends (: 
Sounds great doesn't aye? 

The event was packed with girls and there were many booth counters that each represent a beauty brand!
Skin Inc, Benefit and Loreal just to mention a few (: 

My partner in crime that night - Marie <3 

Some of the snapshots taken that evening.. 

Now lets take a look at Vanity Trove's new social media platform!

It is fairly easy to navigate and as with all my social media accounts, you can find and of course please follow me at @Sheilamansy! :D 

It is generally like Instagram where you can share as many photos as you like
except that on the Vanity Trove platform, you get to also share your vanity regime
From the fragrances to skin care products you use!

There you go! Some of the products I use in my vanity regime :P 
These are not all the products I use but I'll slowly get down to adding everything in! 

You also get to read and write reviews about the products.
I personally feel that it is a great forum for people to share about their experiences with the products!
If you intend to buy a new product but unsure if its good, this is the best place to go to! :D

Screenshots taken from the VT platform > 

Now go to CLICK HERE now or download the app (Simply search Vanity Trove on App Store) on your mobile to find my latest beauty tips & fashion loves (: 

& once your account is up and running, feel free to participate in the Get,Snap,Blingo weekend hashtag project (#GSBHappy) with the happiest photo of the weekend! :D 

See you on the other side! <3

As some of your might already know, I founded Hollyhoque (WWW.HOLLYHOQUE.COM) when I was 18, way back when I was still schooling at Temasek Polytehnic. It was a tough juggle between these two then but thats not the point.I started small with buying ready goods from wholesalers and operated on livejournal which was cost free. Close to a year later, the orders grew, my customers like what I bring in and that was when I decided to take the plunge and start manufacturing Hollyhoque's very own designs. Don't be afraid to try, and always always keep your options open! I've never studied design so I read a lot of fashion magazines and spend hours on the internet, now Instagram, keeping myself updated with the fashion trends. Of course not all the designs I made are well received (Sometimes I even get negative/awful criticisms about our clothes) but it is still part of the learning process - finding out what my consumers like. After years of trial and errors, I figured that basics & knit-wear work best for Hollyhoque. No one has the power to shatter your dream unless you give it to them (: 

These are some of the #OOTD I  ripped off my Instagram @Sheilamansy >> 
I wouldn't say I have the best outfits or nicest photos but each getup reflects my mood at that moment and I really put in effort to edit them! Some of my favourite photo editing apps are VSCO, Afterlight, Diptic, Picsart, Over and ABM (: 

If you haven't heard about using the colour wheel to pair your outfit's colours, you need to read this! 

(Got this image from google)

Using the wheel as a guide, you can team up the colours as such
1) Colours next to each other 
2) Colours directly opposite each other
3) Brightening a monochrome outfit with primary colours (Red, Blue, Yellow) 
4) Colours that forms right angles with each other
(If you're playing with more colours in an outfit) 
5) Colours that form a T (E.g. Violet + Yellow + Red Orange) 
6) Colours that form a X (E.g. Blue + Orange + Yellow + Violet)  

Interesting aye? (:

Now come join me and start drafting your videos/blogpost then submit it HERE before 7th March!
You might just be the lucky winner! <3

Here is a picture of last year's winner to motivate you!!

Besides the awesome prizes you might walk away with,
this will also a good opportunity for bloggers to gain exposure!

Looking back.. I've been with Nuffnang for almost 3 years now and I'm always thankful to you, you and you reading this! Thanks for being interested in my travel updates and new food places! It makes all the research for travel spots & new food hunts worthwhile (: I'll be back soon to continue my travelogues. Stay tuned <3
