Sunday Stickies is a column where we reflect on the past week and pen those thoughts down on sticky pads. Expect notes to ourselves and others, advice, reminders for the week ahead, quotes, and anything random actually.
Happy Sunday! This is Jia and I will be typing the opening paragraphs of Sunday Stickies for the next two weeks because... Min is now in Cape Town. We usually take turns with the opening paragraphs as they are basically updates on the honey&gazelle Design Studio, so you never know who has typed what you have just read. Give Min an applause for rushing out her personal thoughts and reflections of the week below! She completed her stickies and paragraphs mere hours before her flight. Well done, you (: Now, onto our week in the studio...
It was madly packed week in the studio with extended working hours as we had to clear some work that Min was in charge of and wrap up the designs of our upcoming product launches. Whoop, we have a ton of special concepts, products, and collaborations set to launch in the coming months. We are so excited and nervous at the same time!
In the midst of furiously working, we also had to continue settling into our new studio and sort out some teething issues. The space is shaping out very nicely, but we are far from done with it as we are still waiting on deliveries of furniture to reach us. I can't wait for everything to arrive and for the studio space to be in proper functioning condition, as we have to get started on building some huge event props soon!
Min: Woah, I have girly nails! My nails are pink and slightly glittery. Pink is not my favourite colour and to be honest, I’m still slightly puzzled as to why I chose pink. Don’t get me wrong, I love how my nails look now, but you know, it is very pink and I need time to get used to it. Is this what weddings do to people? All that happy adrenaline pumping through the body, influencing all decisions made and turning the world pink and glittery.
Jia has been helping me improve my photoshoot make-up game and honestly, it’s tough. There are many different products and I’m trying my best to remember the purpose of each product. I hope I don’t end up looking like a baboon’s bum with patchy skin on my photoshoot day. Hahaha. I’m beyond excited about my trip because South Africa has always been my to-explore list. I’m extremely blessed for this opportunity! Yay!
Dear lions, I’m coming for you! :D
Jia: If you have been following our Sunday Stickies for a while, you will know that I get addicted to games so quickly and lose all sense of time when I am hooked. Oh boy, this was the week where if I was not working, I was consumed by this new mobile game called Super Tribes and doing world trivia quizzes online. I would just like to proudly say that I kicked ass on many quizzes, including this one created by Telegraph. Another thing that reignited my passion was the release of the trailer for the Pokemon Sun and Moon. Omg. November is way too far away.
On hindsight, I think I have been spending too much time in the digital realm recently and really should get back to my reading habits. It has been quite a while since I read a good book and all that is going to change. Once I am done with this post, it is time to hit the books! I know, I know, I definitely don't sound like the coolest person in the world with all the games, world trivia, and books, but you just gotta do whatever you love to do, right?
I hope you had a wonderful week! Were you obsessed with anything in particular this week? Tell us all about it (:
