After six years in Singapore, time has come for me to return to the USA. Living in Singapore was wonderful, it opened a door to creativity, resourcefulness and understanding, so different from living in New York and London. I entered a world so foreign to my own, it taught me to learn and accept a new ideal of beauty and appreciate what I had familiarity with. While in Asia, I made the best lemonade I could with my career, personal life, travel opportunities, and also embraced a healthy lifestyle. If any of my peers, clients and editorial friends are reading this, I owe you the trust and opportunities I had and will be forever grateful, please come visit me and keep in touch. My last weeks in Singapore were so packed with endless to-do’s, packing and quietly reflecting, I didn’t have a proper going away with anyone, goodbye’s are awful.
This weekend I will be attending the New York Makeup Show, a NARS tweet up, a blogger preview event with James Vincent and workshops by Make Up Forever and Temptu Pro. Last year, I was lucky to be in Chicago for the same event and this year, so delighted to be a part of the NY show. What I love about the Makeup Show aside from all the workshops and shopping experience, is the opportunity to listen and meet renowned fellow artists and get inspired.
I have a shopping list and of course I will be sharing my thoughts post-show. If you want real-time updates, I will be Instagram-ing and on Twitter. For Instagram, I can be found at Norahlovesmakeup_mua and on norah_s on Twitter.
