Trixilini Supports Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) on a Charity Drive

Hey ladies, as part of the international breast cancer awareness month, the Breast Cancer Foundation is throwing a charity event this Friday, 1 October, at the Ion Orchard Premiere!

Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) is a non-profit charity organisation, established in October 1997. Under the leadership of its Patron, Mayor (Mrs) Yu-Foo Yee Shoon and her dedicated, enthusiastic executive committee, BCF’s mission is to:

Eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease.

BCF hopes that by raising awareness of breast cancer and encouraging women to screen themselves regularly, breast cancer will be detected earlier and the chances of surviving the disease will be greatly enhanced.

A meaningful cause as this warrants our support, ladies!

Hosted by Stephanie Carrington, the event starts at 6pm with an ongoing on-the-spot make-over by Bobbi Brown. There is also a live demonstration at 6.30pm for you ladies who wish to pick up a tip or two on make-up.

Did we mention there'd be candies and cookies, music CDs and BCF pins for sale too? All proceeds go to a good cause! You'll be doing something nice! See ya there!

Grand Prix Has Wrapped Up!

Ladies, the biggest and most spectacular event of the year is, sadly, over... But can we just say we had such a blast!

Ferrari racer, Fernando Alonso, bagged the championship last night with a timing of 1:58:53.579! Following closely behind was Sebastian Vettel (for Red Bull) at just 0.2 seconds later! The second-runner position went to Mark Webber (also for Red Bull).

Alonso emerges from his car, victorious!

The Champs (L-R): Sebastien Vettel, Fernando Alonso and Mark Webber

Alonso, who has been quoted saying "I love this track. It seems to suit my driving style!", sees his fourth victory of the season, matching the tally of World Championship leader Mark Webber. It wasn't all smiles for 2009 winner, Lewis Hamilton, however, who was involved in the most controversial moment of a thrilling race when Webber made contact with him in Turn 5, ending his race!

Also dramatic, was a twist that took place in the closing laps when Heikki Kovalainen’s Lotus came on to the main straight with the back of the car in flames. The Finn showed great sang-froid, however, to stop, get out, accept a fire extinguisher from a nearby marshal, and dousing the fire himself.

Song diva, Mariah Carey, who also invited a couple of guest performers to her show, closed the Grand Prix by entertaining everyone with her tunes that made it necessary to groove.

Traffic was surprisingly smooth over the weekend! Thank you for zipping down to Trixilini amidst the anticipated more-than-usual town-crowd this period, and great job to those of you who managed to nab last pieces from Yumi Kim!

We had fun and we hope you had a fabulous Grand Prix weekend too! Breeze through the closure-free roads to work tomorrow! :)

Spotted: F1 AT&T Williams Driver, Nico Hulkenberg!

The unusual line piqued our curiosity and we went out with our spy cam....

Personally autographed too!

We've now got something for our hair this F1!

Yu - Pre-Order For Nicky

Look who made it to our list of 'must-haves'! She's all about understatements and a keen eye would pick up on her subtle shirring, a sheer panel that aims to tease and maybe even her hidden pockets that allow your hands to slip in for that effortless chic. A one-piece with the illusion of two, she has you thinking she made a lot of effort. Her name.... Nicky.

Nicky (one size and colour)
SGD 269

Sheer Panel

Prefer a bit more modesty? Slip on a lacy bandeau for that coquettish innocence. Nicky is up for pre-orders now because we know she'll fly off the shelves. So to avoid being disappointed, we recommend dialing 6338-7060 or e-mailing grace at grace@trixilini.com as soon before 17 September, Friday!

Spotted! Yumi Kim Aubrey Dress on Paris Hilton!

Guess who's been spotted in a pretty Aubrey dress in rosette? It's none other than well-known socialite, Paris Hilton, sharing the cover of the latest copy of 'hot' magazine with Vanessa Hudgens.

Here's a peek inside... Paris's looking really lady-like and demure in Aubrey.

We've run out of the Aubrey dress, I'm afraid, but there're still a few styles from Yumi Kim that have not been (but will very soon be) snagged into someone's closet. Don't miss out!
