WORK

VAINER THAN THOU

In case you haven't heard, I am now one of the main contributors on Jane Pratt's latest baby, xoVain.com

Even during the launch and until now, it's a serious mindfuck. I mean, c'mon. I was 18 when I saw my name in print, and all I wanted to do then was have my name in a publication that lived and breathed NYC... and here I am. I'm the only person in the contributors list that doesn't live in North America, which is kinda cool, and kinda my USP as well.

It has been a little bit stressful because most of the time, I'm going between 'who the fuck cares about what I think?!', and 'am I being funny enough?!'... most because unlike this blog, or the Singaporean/ Asia Pacific publications I've written about, one thing I love about their sister mag, xoJane.com, is how vocal readers get. So far, I've gotten very interesting comments on my articles, and one negative tweet, which I've just let slide down my back.

No use sweating the small stuff... and the small people who want to make you feel small.

Like my Page on Facebook and I'll let you know when more stories are up. I can't wait for them!

I'M NOT LEAVING, YET.

I haven't got time to write here anymore.

I know, it's not news, considering how little I've been updating. I won't be abandoning the site, I like to think that when I move to the US and freelance again, I'll have more time to update. For now, you'd have to make do with my sporadic updates. I've been working hard - I have one foot in the publishing industry in the US. Something I've dreamt about since I started writing almost nine years ago - I wanted to write for a magazine in New York City. And now, I am. It's launching 1 March, and it's the sister site for the incredible xoJane.com.

I've been signing a couple of contracts over the weeks, and it's a little bit surreal. I've let out a little squeal every time something new about the site comes along and it's exhilarating to be part of 7-10 women that's going to be part of something huge.

When I started writing, I wanted to change the world. I know now that I can't change the whole world with my two hands, but my God, I know I will give it my all to try and change the things I want to be different in this world.

Watch this space - I can't wait to tell y'all about the site!

INTERVIEWING PATRICIA FIELD

I've interviewed so many personalities and celebrities in my career, and I've never actually been starstruck until yesterday when I met Patricia Field, the stylist to so many movies and TV shows that I've loved, and am still in love with. We talked about the various movies including several scenes in The Devil Wears Prada, we yapped about Ugly Betty, and Sex & The City, and I had to physically restrain my jaw from hitting the ground, and wanting to hug her at the same time.

Have I mentioned she's 71? What a rockstar!
