A year ago, I started shonshon8 to express my love for fashion, share design that excites me and use the blog as an experimental creative platform. At first, it was a challenging project—though I can be outspoken and passionate, I am also an introverted, shy and private person by nature. The thought of putting my photos online was actually terrifying! However, through blogging, I’ve learned to be more open about who I am, not to mention, having complete, artistic freedom is the ultimate dream!
In celebration of my 1 year blog anniversary, here are my top 8 fashion posts.
1. My first post ever!
2. Impromptu photo shoot using my IKEA wardrobe as a backdrop.
3. I really LOVE this vintage leopard print hood.
4. Chinese New Year’s post featuring Miss X, a dynamic jewelry and cosmetics line.
5. Guess what?? I can be a bit of a tomboy.
6. Spring makes me daydream…
7. This outfit makes me feel invincible.
8. I don’t miss out on opportunities to sit in a Lamborghini. Would you?

A year later, blogging continues to be a big passion of mine. That said, I don’t always have as much time as I’d like to post new content! Sometimes I post more, other times my work (I’m an art director and stylist) keeps me up until 4 in the morning, so I have to put it on the backburner. But I appreciate you readers checking back and I’m always active on facebook and twitter. Let’s just say I’m currently finetuning my life so I can focus on what I REALLY want to do; eventually there will be more time for blogging.
P.S. For my blog’s birthday, it would be a fantastic gift if you could let friends know about shonshon8.wordpress.com. Feel free to use any of those share buttons below. 😉
