Hey there, thanks for the feature (: To let you guys know a little bit about me, I am currently still an undergraduate in Singapore, who has a passion for films and series of most forms apart from horror. I adore fashion, music, reading and ice skating so perhaps you will be able to catch me on ice!
What inspires your fashion style and where do you love to shop from?
I first started feeling more conscious about what I was wearing and tried to find my personal style when I was about 15-16. Since then, I think my style has evolved over the years thanks to some of the content creators I follow online, and I also get inspiration from my peers who dress really well.
I believe in the mixing high- and low-end pieces as I’m currently still a student, so I have to pick and choose wisely where I want to spend my money when it comes to clothes. As for my go to shops, I would normally pop into Zara or the Editor’s market, if not I would thrift for some pieces in Lucky Plaza, and make a purchase on Shein or ASOS.
Do you have a lifestyle or fashion hack that you can’t live without?
I honestly don’t think I can live without my guasha anymore haha. I got a guasha for the first time earlier this year and I really enjoy using it almost every morning. In the past when I used to take photos, I felt that my face looked really bloated in them and I thought that it was because of weight gain, etc. It turns out that a big reason for the bloating was because of the fluids trapped around my jawline which can be drained using a guasha. Even if I’m just lying to myself about my appearance, using a guasha is a very therapeutic and calming process to do in the mornings, I use it on my shoulders as well to ease out tension which is great!
Which 3 things do you enjoy doing most in the city you live in?
Living in Singapore, I think most of us can agree that eating out is one of the best things to do because there are so many options. I like to explore and discover new F&B establishments in order to find my next favorite café or dine in spot, at the moment it’s still Grain Alley.
Apart from lots of eating, I love to head to the beach or be poolside with some of my friends to just tan and relax. I think a fresh tan has always suited me better as compared to a fairer complexion haha
Lastly, I finally decided to continue ice skating again this summer, after stepping into the rink for the first time in a few years I knew it was something I had to do regularly and work on. Ever since, I’ve been to the rink at least once every week and I’m seriously considering purchasing a pair of ice skates again. I’m glad that I can still remember the basics from my trainings as a kid and I hope to improve slowly on my own through practice.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a foodie are you?
Oh this is easy, 10 for sure, I live to eat, not eat to live. I mean who doesn’t love to eat especially when there are so many options to choose from, I struggle to pick just one favorite cuisine. At the moment Thai food is definitely at the top of my list because I am craving the roadside boat noodles I had in Bangkok, and I can’t find something similar anywhere in Singapore.
If you can have a super power, what will it be?
If I could have any superpower, I would love to be able to teleport. As simple and cliché as it sounds, being able to teleport will save me a lot of time that I desperately need. Obviously, that also means that I won’t have to worry about paying for flights and travel would be much easier, but I have no idea how I’m going to explain this superpower of mine to the immigration authorities. Lastly, being able to teleport ensures that I can be with my loved ones at any given moment when they need me, and in these times, I think all of us need it more than ever.
What kind of music are you into and do you have any favorite artists?
Not bound to a single genre as it depends on the day and mood but a few of my favorites will include jazz, pop, R&B, classical, and rock. I would sell my soul to watch Michael Bublé or Beyoncé in person, and if we could bring back people from the dead Queen, Amy Winehouse, and Louis Armstrong are at the top of my list as well, along with many others.
What turns you off on a date?
The first thing that comes to mind is bad table manners or rude behaviour towards service staff. I think this is an extremely crucial indicator of one’s character and it is an immediate red flag for me. Additionally, though it is not exactly a ‘turn off’ I think that if the date ends up being a fairly silent one, I will probably never see the same person again haha. I believe that I do my best to strike up a conversation or at least keep it going, but if there is nothing for me to go off on then I’d probably stop trying too.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Victoria. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I think being comfortable and confident is extremely sexy. The people that I look up to are very comfortable with who they are, and I think its admirable how unapologetic they are for just being themselves. This is something I am working on every day and continue to aspire towards becoming as sexy as my role models.
