EAT.SHOP.PLAY at 313@somerset

Wow, in a blink of an eye it's already the 4th challenge. For this week, it's all about spending the day at 313@somerset aka the Lifestyle Challenge. But there's a twist, the finalists were all given random alphabets and are required to only go to shops with those alphabets on it. So for example if I got "O" as one of my alphabets, I would have to go to shops starting with "O". For instance, "Old Chang Kee", and/or "OWNDAYS". In addition, we need to come up with minimum 4 activities to do at 313@somerset.

For me, I've gotten the alphabets (C. D. J. L. U. Y). It was hard initially because most of the shops with the alphabets that I was given revolves around F&B, so it got me thinking quite hard as to how I'm going to come out with 4 activities to do at the 313@somerset, because I can't be possibly eating for the whole entire day right? But thanks to my friend Angie (@YourApplePie) who happens to be a lifestyle blogger herself, she manage to give me some ideas as to how to make the idea and plan flow. So without further ado, let's get started with this post shall we?

What's Your Style

For challenge 3, the finalists were given a specific style to embody, and for me, I got Athlete as my theme for this challenge.

So today I will be sharing some of the tips and tricks as to how to achieve that Athlete/Sporty look. For me, style is a personal preference, different people have different style and I can't force you to follow what I'm about to show you in this post, but I do hope that my tips and ideas will be able to give you some inspiration as to how you want to style your pieces next time. Remember, dress to express, not to impress.

Teenage YouTube Challenge

For this week's challenge, we are task to do up a Chubby Bunny YouTube video so as to compete against the past Teenage Gorgeous You contestants to see who's video can come out on top.
Initially when given the challenge brief for this, I was quite skeptical as to how Chubby Bunny and pick up lines is going to blend. Reason being, we had to make it funny and yet engaging at the same time, so at that point there were many thought process that was going through my head.
In the midst of brainstorming for this challenge, my mind immediately think of Ben (@BenVoda) from TGY 2016 where he did a YouTube lip sync video with his alter persona - Bennita. So after much discussion, we finally made out some time to film for this challenge video.

To balance out "Bennita's" outgoing and vibrant personality, I had to go on par with "her" and dressed myself as "Donna". During the filming process, we both could not help it but to feel scared that people might just walk in and see 2 guys wearing wig and filming video in front of a camera, we just can't. So thank god Noelle (@NoelleMikazuki) who is nice and kind enough to push away her busy schedule just so she could help me with this challenge.

Overall, it was a fun and enjoyable day of filming, and because of this, I also get to meet up with both Ben and Noelle after a long time of not seeing each other. We all laughed so hard when filming and both Ben and I had a tough time trying to say out those pick up lines with all the marshmallows in our mouth. We both even teared a little. 😂

Now for the final production, the video. It's about 9mins long but I will break it down here so that you guys will know what to expect and which scenes to keep a lookout for.
