Ask Me Anything Answered – My Engagement!

Anonymous asked: Love reading your blog soo much and it’s given me a lot of help with my wardrobe. Just noticed in the last few posts that a gorgeous ring has popped up on Elle’s left finger :) Are you engaged?

Hello!! Sorry to get back to you so late. Thank you so much for your lovely comment! You  certainly have very sharp eyes =) Yes, I am engaged!!

The day was the 6th of September 2011, and it had just gone 10am in the morning. The location was the majestic 620 Loft & Garden at the Rockefeller Center in the heart of New York City. It was totally unexpected and to be honest, my emotions were unexpected too! I think I was more scared and nervous than anything else! My heart was pumping like crazy and the first thing that came out of my mouth was “What are you doing?! Get up!”

Excuse the paparazzi looking shots – the boy hired a photographer to capture the moment and she was hiding behind the bush. Much kudos to my boy for his wonderful efforts – having to contend with Hurricane Irene and torrential rain meant that months of planning and coordination were thrown into total disarray and everything had to be reorganised. No wonder he couldn’t eat anything during our first couple of nights in New York! Somehow he still managed to pull the wool over my eyes with a fabricated story and organized some sunshine. He even threw in a Chuck Bass style limousine for good measure!

A memorable stay at the New York Palace completed my Gossip Girl fantasy.

Celebratory lunch and bubbly at Asiate, whilst gazing over Central Park.

A room with a view – I was looking out the window at the Proposal location everyday and didn’t even know it.

  11. Congratulations! How PERFECT! Absolutely gorgeous like a magazine spread. Seriously wow.

    I love lots of ring styles- I always wonder if girls get bored/want another design after awhile? What are your thoughts? Can you do a “ring special” of some gorgeous designs or something?

    • Hi E! Thanks for your lovely comment. I definitely do get bored with my ring after while. Having said that my ring is just a really classic design with nothing but just the solitaire (i.e. no halo or anything like that). Of course, I would actually love to do a ring special for all the gorgeous designs I like. My husband and I have been together for 10 years…hmmm…maybe a new ring! hehehe =)
