Studio M Staycation Review

If you are still looking for staycation options for year-end parties with your significant other or your bffs, give Studio M a try!

Located at No 3 Nanson Road (nearest MRT: Clarke Quay), Studio M is the first hotel in Singapore to feature loft-style rooms. Expect full-length windows and lots of natural sunlight for great OOTD shots (perfect for me!). Why Studio M? Simply because I saw so many nice photos of it on Instagram and the price is reasonable!

Jacelyn Phang X Studio M loft concept

Two weeks ago, I booked a 2D1N stay for a short stay at the Studio Loft (cheapest option!) for $198/night and was surprised with an upgrade to Premier Loft (around $280/night) when checking-in. Check in was smooth on a Friday afternoon and we were granted a later check out time (1.30pm) upon request.

The package includes unlimited Internet access, complimentary breakfast for 2 and complimentary car parking (warning: car park spaces are limited, whenever I return from shopping, there are only 1 or 2 slots available. So make sure you are not staying out too late!).

Premier loft has the bed on the upper floor and a working table on level one. Making it a great option for business travellers too! Oh, don’t expect nice view out from the window, as there are no other things than tall buildings.

Studio M offers a minimalist interior and a decent comfort level for a short stay. The downside however is that… the shower area and the toilet cubicle are really awfully small. I am not fat, and I find the space rather restrictive, so imagine how small it is.

Breakfast had a variety of options like bacon, sausages, hash browns, salad, porridge, bread, and an egg cooking station. I liked that breakfast was in an al fresco setting, allowing me to soak in some sunlight (my favorite activity ever since my bone fracture because the doctor says I have insufficient Vitamin D level).

The egg cooking station was a distance away from the main area serving food so both me and my friend didn’t even notice the station until it was closed 🙁

Had a lot of errands that weekend so I didn’t get to enjoy the amenities (swimming pool, Jacuzzi and gym) but the deck at level 2 is worth checking out! It has multiple seating areas and spacious cabanas that are good for you and your friends to chill.

Opposite the hotel was the The Book Café which I fell in love with! For individuals who love to read, this is the perfect place for you as The Book Café has several hundred books and magazines that are free for browsing. The sofas are so comfy that I stayed the whole afternoon in the café to get some work done. Oh, not forgetting that they have free wireless internet access and also offer printing services. P.S. Studio M residents get a 20% discount; you only have to show your hotel’s access card!

Jacelyn Phang recommend Studio M Hotel

Overall, I did thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Studio M. Staff were friendly and helpful; and if you are just looking for a short getaway to rest and recharge, or even spending some me-time over a weekend, I highly recommend a staycation at Studio M Hotel.

I am always on a lookout for good staycation options; if you have other places you would recommend, write to me!

Happy holidays all! <3

With much love, Jacelyn

Never STOP Learning

Einstein  said, “Once you stop learning, you start dying”.

So every now and then, I would push myself out of comfort zone to experience new things or learn new skills.

I am back to attend Cosmoprof’s Make Up and Hairstyling course for the month of December (stopped for awhile because of my leg fracture previously) so I have not been active in doing anything else 🙁 Everyday it’s just class, work and sleep.

Just done with my mood board and make up conceptualisation for the upcoming exams today! Will be re-creating the looks I have selected in the next few days… I have gotten many enquiries and questions about the make up class, so I will share more about the course when my exam ends. Meanwhile, please wish me good luck Xx

On a side note, I do miss my dear classmates from the previous batch whom have graduated :'( They were my pillars of strength and encouragement on a daily basis as I struggle through this class A LOT.

Work OOTD

Jacelyn Phang Work Chic Outfit

Work outfits doesn’t always mean black & white or boring. My work wear philosophy had always been “don’t blend in when you can stand out”.

Get noticed with
1. Unique accessory (it’s always a great conversation starter!), or
2. Bright colors (ain’t no time to be a wallflower) and
3. Fitted outfits (you look smart instantly)

“If summer could be a person, it would be Star Clozetter JacelynPhang! Her boldly printed pencil skit and bright green halter top aren’t what you would expect someone to wear during the fall season, but going against fashion rules surely paid off! Her gorgeous pencil skirt hugged her body beautifully, while her halter top and large sunglasses pulled the whole look together for one classy OOTD.” – Tisha Caedo, Feature Writer of Clozette
