MEETING THE BLONDE SALAD

No she’s not a Cos lettuce, but the most famous blogger in the world. And I got to meet her. That is not the strangest part about all of this. In 2012, I created a vision board, which I stuck on the back of my closet so I would look at it every day as I got dressed.

I had a picture of Chiara on there. Not because I wanted to meet her, but because I was starting a blog and she was a huge inspiration for me. It’s so strange how visualisation works! I never thought in a million years this trailblazer of the digital space – who is only at the most prestigious events and has grown from strength to strength, would end up here in Singapore, at the Amulette de Cartier launch. And I would be there too!

I first found out about The Blonde Salad through my friend Bay Bay, who used to work at Louis Vuitton. Since then, I became completely hooked! She’s done so well for herself and as her hashtag says #TheBlondeSaladNeverStops. What is she like? She’s lovely – I asked her about her recent Vogue Espana cover shoot (she’s shooting covers her in Singapore for fun by the way – I think she’s done Harper’s Bazaar, Style, and one other one lucky gal!) and she said that at first they said they might not do it, but when it all came through she was very excited. I also met one of her team-members from the TBS Crew – her business that pretty much helps keep the power house running. When you are as big as Chiara you need a squad! He was lovely and we chatted about Milano – which is where they are based and Chiara now resides in LA.

The event itself was actually so gorgeous and whimsical – with a stall set up of candies, fine chocolates, cookies and sweets to reflect each precious stone of in the Amulette de Cartier collection. Each gemstone is locked in with a padlock and reflects a different emotion. I would have to say my picks would be the Mother-of-Pearl or the Onyx.

Thank you for having me Cartier! #UnlockYourWish of meeting Chiara was indeed unlocked!
