My goal as Editor-in-Chief is to make sure The Singapore Women’s Weekly remains your cheerleader – standing by the sidelines cheering you on with the latest news, tips and advice to ensure you step out each day feeling confident to take on the world.
In the September issue, we share ways to upgrade your life. We’re not talking about a complete overhaul, but we’re sharing easy, doable steps to help you be a better version of you. Entrepreneur Elim Chew is proof that life is made up of renewals; she’s constantly upgrading, twisting and turning with agility to remain relevant with the times. In “Keeping Ahead Of The Times”, she says, “It’s only when you go outside of what’s familiar or comfortable do you gain fresh perspectives and learn from different angles.”
To help you get a fresh perspective on your workwear, fashion stylist-writer Aaron Kok has focused on helping you update your “work-drobe” with the newest trends. And don’t miss our fab shoe guide. It’ll bring you up to speed with the latest styles and shows exactly how to wear them for different occasions so you get more bang for your buck.
But before you do anything, turn to Pg 73. Our life is at its busiest, so to get on top of things, we’ve got to learn to manage negative thoughts that weigh us down. One of the tips that I’m adopting is this – instead of saying “I need to have everything under control”, I’m learning to say “There’s a lot I can’t control.” Try it… it’s so liberating. Be inspired!
