Like Sugar and Daydream in a Case

Happy to be sharing with you something simple but pretty for a start. :)

Having chanced upon @traceryshop while doing my rounds on instagram, I was immediately drawn by the pretty colours and as one never needs a reason to shop..

I'm not typically a fan of bling, preferring mostly low key pieces. 
I am however, excited to share more about these glitter cases from @Traceryshop whose owner, Baifern (her nickname, all Thais have nicknames, which I didn't know until Clement gave all of us the 101 on Thailand recently) gets hands on and goes the extra mile in personalizing tech cases for her customers.

Her instagram feed showcases the vast array of colours and designs that she offers. After talking to her, I found out that she personalizes the colours used, and is also able to customize the design. A red based laptop case, could also be fused with hot pink glitter and flecks of purple and gold, to give a more multi-dimensional look. 

When I showed the girls and Clement (my colleagues and crew at CJ), the first question they posed, was if "the glitter would get everywhere and therefore cause a mess?" 
"No." I deadpanned. They really need to shop more. 

When placing your order, tell Baifern the font you want (she will also send you a few choices) and what I like most about her service is that the cases came neatly bubble wrapped and in zip lock packets even before I knew their tracking number. :)  

Here's a look at some of her bestsellers! 


Her cases are priced (in my opinion), very reasonably, given the amount of work that goes into the construction of a case. 

::: Prices :::
* Phone Case * (different brand cases are available)
a. case with glitter only (no name)               12-20 SGD
b. clear case + name | word(s)                       26 SGD
c. case with glitter + name | word(s)             28 SGD

* Macbook Glitter Case *
Pro / Air / Retina / The new macbooks

11 inch 52 SGD
12 inch 52 SGD
13 inch 54 SGD
15 inch 55 SGD

To add a name | word(s)  + 4 SGD

Shipping not included. 

1 - 3 days for phone case
2 - 4 days for macbook case
(She usually sends within 7-14 business days after payment confirmation due to large order numbers.)

According to Baifern, her popular colours are: Pink glitter, Hologram glitter, Galaxy glitter and dark Silver glitter ka. :) 

If you're not a fan of the red tones, she's got options for everyone in almost every colour! Her instagram feed is a great place for referencing designs and colours! 

You can visit her Instagram shop: @traceryshop | www.instagram.com/traceryshop

To place an order, you can drop her a message on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Traceryshop)  or text her on LINE. She speaks good english, so communication has so far been a smooth process!  

 Baifern! Tracery Shop's owner! 

All our readers will be able to get 10% their purchases!  Simply quote "ShopwithCelineJessandra" when placing your order!

Happy Shopping! :)

CJ's Open House 2015 took place on the 21st of June this year, and we would like to say a big THANK YOU to all our enthusiastic students and our hardworking performing crew, Lazarus, for their help in making our Open House a success!

Things were off to a bright and early start at 11am in the morning with our Kids Dance workshop! Together with Teacher Ms Riana, the kids got their blood pumping and body grooving to a simple but energetic dance routine. We had many new faces in the class, but despite their initial shyness, they managed to have fun and dance along freely to the music. After getting all warmed up from dancing, the kids headed off to our vocal classroom for a Vocal for Kids workshop with Teacher Xin Li.

One of our new initiatives here at CJ! Vocals has been an integral part of our course structure and we are now introducing vocal classes for kids! Our Kids Vocal instructor, in addition to her wide vocal knowledge, also specializes in early childhood education! We hope both workshops managed to spark a longer-lasting interest in singing, dancing and the performing arts!

Young love is in the air~

When I grow up, I want to be this tall!
Dance and Vocal workshops were conducted non-stop throughout the day, and the school was kept bustling with non-stop activity. Our instructors had a long day of teaching and performing but the students' enthusiasm and positive attitude to learning was infectious and made all our workshops, be it dance or vocal, fun-filled and energetic!

The highlight of the day for many of our students was the performance showcase put on by our very own student performing crew, Lazarus!

Over the 2 weeks leading up to Open House, evenings here at CJ were busy with students, pockets of vocalists harmonising and rehearsing with one another, and small groups of dancers playing music over their phones and working on their moves. So many different sounds and music playing simultaneously, all fighting to be heard, but the excitement and camaraderie in the air brought it all together into a chaotic but pleasant cacophony.

CJ is where many of our Lazarus crew members first got to know one another, and it is in our humble studio and school that they have spent hours together sweating it out and/or belting it out in their dance and vocal classes respectively. For Lazarus' first project together to have been CJ's Open House was a very poignant and fitting occurrence, and we hope this will be a lasting memory for them.

The performance showcase ended with a short item by our Chief Vocal Instructor, Clement, and the Caius Coalition, the official dance crew of CJ's entertainment arm, Caius Lauren Entertainment (CLE). The crew performed a medley of songs choreographed by our very own resident instructor and CLE artiste, Jojo!

There were many new faces present at CJ that day, as well as several old regulars we've missed seeing here, and together with all our currently active students, it felt like such an amazing congregation of past, present and future. CJ has grown to become like a second home to many of our students, and we hope this would be the case for any new additions to the CJ family!
