I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

This was back when I was in Paris for a night in celebration of a particularly silky and sensual YSL lipstick range called Rouge Volupté Shine – a small photoshoot was organized for a select few bloggers and each of us were assigned colours and themes from the collection to represent. You would think that after years of pouting with a bottle of mouthwash in one hand, delivering catchphrases like Jennifer Love Hewitt to the mirror while your brother bangs on the bathroom door (who eventually resorts to peeing in a bush in the garden) would prepare you at all for situations such a these. Well no, apparently my face hits a 404 error at Lights, camera, action! and it forgets how to blink… or just malfunctions altogether. The morning of the shoot I’d rejoiced when I found one of my lipsticks to be called INcognito, which I thought meant I could basically do what I do best and hide behind a curtain of hair, or maybe even just a thick curtain, but as it was deep violet in colour and also one of the darkest shade in the range I was directed to act like a surprised vampy spy caught in the act, face twitching or not. So all-in-all, I must say I have newfound respect for models in beauty campaigns, and also find myself very snug in the pro-photoshop side of things.

A huge thank you to YSL Beauty & Ykone for a wonderful day and an eye-opening experience!
