So here's the official 'I'm Back!' post!
Technically I have been back for awhile, as you could probably tell from me getting some blog posts up again. I delayed making an official blog post about it because instead of just saying in text that I am back, I wanted to include some photos. And what better photos to include then ones from my graduation - since it was fitting.
Just to update or inform those wondering, I had just graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design. I had posted a graduation post way back, and that was when I graduated with a Diploma in Graphic Design - not to confuse anyone as to why I am graduating so many times!
Here are some photos from the night.
I didn't do anything special with my hair since we had to wear the scholar's hat mortar board (thanks Sophia!). Also, it's such a pity there were no full length shots of my dress because we wore the grad robes the entire time. Guess I didn't actually have to bother with my outfit that much!
This was the only shot I had of me when I did not have my robes on, group shot with the boyfriend and my brother.
The panels that are behind us are our exhibition panels - we designed and laid it out by ourselves. The panels explain our project and display the work (or deliverables, as we call it) that we had done for the project. The boyfriend's panel on the left, and mine on the right (see the green spots?). I shan't go into detail about the projects and all here because it isn't necessary.
Now for something a little more related to my blog, I want to feature a pair of heels I got. I went shoe-hunting the day before the graduation and was glad I managed to find a pair I absolutely adored that matched my outfit. Again, it is a pity there isn't a full outfit shot, but oh well. The shoes are from Charles & Kieth, one of my favorite places to go when getting heels for a good price.
I believe I got it for S$89.90 and apparently this model is quite popular because I picked up the last black pair available (in size 36) at the ION branch. It comes in red and one other color, can't recall it now. The outer material is suede so it does not hurt the back-ankle area unlike most other shoes that do. Despite the heel height, it is comfortable to walk in due to the platform in the front, and it makes me much taller too!
So that would be it for the graduation update, one more last bit before I end this entry.. I had recolored my hair again! It may not be obvious in the graduation shots because of the dim lighting but I colored my hair a color I used to have - Bright Auburn.
Here are some shots of it under natural indoor and outdoor lighting.
With natural sunlight but outdoors this time so the sun is a lot brighter.
This was a candid shot my friend took at the botanical gardens. I went there with my parents, the boyfriend, his parents and my photographer friend. Since wearing the robes was a once-in-a-lifetime thing, we thought it would be fun to shoot around.
This hair color tends to look duller with dimmer light, but judging from the photos it seems to look the same so far - though I am sure the intensity would fade.
Previously when I colored my hair this shade, I had gotten a lot of questions about what I had used so this time around I took a photo of the product. And yes, this was a DIY-dye job. I used Revlon's Colorsilk range in the shade Bright Auburn.
This costs around S$7+ to S$10+ depending on where you purchase it from. That's a far cry from the 80-100 dollars I would have to splash out to get my hair colored at the salon.
So that was my compilation of updates and the official I'm back signal! As I had said I have loads to post up and I wanted to spam post them all in a span of one to two days, but I just might be spreading it out a little more. Just so it isn't so suffocating to read so much at once, and at the same time so I can rest a little. Not gonna lie, I have been slacking and doing nothing but sleep the past few days, I feel as if I am hibernating!
Here I go rambling again, I totally miss blogging and I just feel like I'm blurting everything out as I type. I hope this entry wasn't too long and thank you all again so much for reading and sticking with me!
Entries will be going up as per normal (pre-hiatus) again! Yay to that (:
