Outside the skies were pouring buckets of rain. But inside the amphitheatre at Vivocity, we were all dry and eager awaiting the start of the fashion show. Invited to watch the Crocs Fashion Show meant getting a first sneak peek of the latest offerings. And you will be amazed by the new collection that are now currently in stores.

In the fickle world of fashion, innovation is the key to continued consumer loyalty. Many brands fail to realise this and unfortunately, start to lose market share. But certainly not Crocs. Just consider this fact - Over the last 10 years, Crocs has transformed from a one shoe company into a brand that carries over 300 shoe styles each season.

When Crocs first arrived on our shores, many of us were soon bought over by its design and the way the slipper shoes conforms to our feet after several wears.

Fast forward to 2012 where yet another new collection of shoes will be introduced.

For ladies in particular, it’s hard not to go ga-ga over the wide offerings ranging from beach sandals (otherwise known as sexi sandals), mini wedges, peep toes to deck shoes. This was what I counted amongst the new collection.

- 5 colours for translucent collection croslite (adrina 2)
- 3 colours for Carliana peep toe ombre
- 4 colours for sexi sandal
- 4 colours to sexi aliana
- 4 colours for carliana sandal
- 3 colours for carlisa mini wedge
- 2 colours for above deck shoes
- 4 colours for melboune II

And if you thought only the ladies would get excited, you are dead wrong. The guys too were not forgotten. I personally sampled 4 leather types, 2 canvas types and 3 croslite materials. Okay, we may not have as wide a new collection as our female counterparts, but at least we have some more designs to choose from.

I think I will have a serious headache later when I get to choose my free pair of Crocs from the outlet. But I guess I have narrowed down my option to the red pair of Crocs streetstyle shoes. Made of Croslite material, I should have no more worries about keeping my shoes dry in Singapore’s erratic weather should there be a heavy downpour. Easy to dry, lightweight, trendy to boot and so comfortable, the red Crosmesh Hover Lace Up is the pair I’m aiming to get.

The Crocs Fashion Show presented an interesting kaleidoscope of the various moments in our life – whether it was strict business wear, cool smart casual wear or down-to-earth casual wear. The models were dressed in each of these dress codes and accompanied by the pair of matching Crocs shoes! It was not just the colours that amazed, but the wide palette of styles. The message Crocs seems to send across is that there will always be a pair of Crocs shoes for each and every occasion.

How quickly time flies…March is over…Which means one third of the year has gone by!

If you have set your SMART goals earlier, then here’s 3 additional tips to help you achieve your goals.
 
 

Tip #1: Implement Change Gradually

Rome wasn’t built in a day. Similarly, a key factor in implementing change is taking it slow but steady. There is a Chinese saying that goes “it takes three years to cultivate a good habit but only three days to learn a bad one.” Take heed that you are changing for the better so it does take time.

However, having said that, you should still reach for mini milestones. Mini milestones are like baby steps which you take. Remember when you were a kid and had to take your first step out? A little unsure, tumbling and falling perhaps, but you sure did take that first step out. And as they always say, the rest is history. 

I always believe in celebrating victories – regardless of them being big or small. You should too! Celebrating your successes along the way is a surefire way of keeping your spirits up and propelling you forward.

A gradual and consistent change in your lifestyle not only boosts your confidence, it also strengthens your will to succeed.
 

Tip #2: Be Kind To Yourself

Like it or not, we are all overachievers. Even if it’s not an inborn trait, it’s a trait we learnt from society. But do a quick reality check and you realise that not everyday is a perfect day. 

On some days, we wake up feeling like the luckiest person in the world. We wake up feeling like a million bucks. We feel like we are floating on seventh heaven. Yet on other days, we wake up feeling lousy. We have mood swings. We also have bad hair days.

This is life, my friends.

There are good days when your goals are achieved. There are also not so ideal days when your goals are underachieved. Note I didn’t use the word “not achieved”. The difference is just you are a little off tangent.

If some days go by with little or no progress, there’s no need to start kicking yourself in the butt. Do not get discouraged and do not stop moving.

Just treat it like a break. And guess what? After the break, you will be back to top form again. Top class athletes too need breaks in between their breaks. So do our trains.

If today is your not so ideal day, seek support from your friends to kickstart your spirits again. Or if you want to seek professional advice, then drop me an email.
 
 

Tip #3: Choose Your Words Carefully

It’s interesting to read about how kids grow up differently because of the varying parenting methods their parents use. If a parent keeps labeling a child stupid, chances of the kid growing up feeling useless, rebellious and angry are multiplied many times. 

If we are subjected to external stimulus like parenting methods, think what more “damage” we can do to ourselves should we choose to negate and devalue ourselves internally.

It is tempting to always find excuses or lay blame to escape from harsh reality. 

“I’m not good enough.” 

“I am resigned to the fact that…”

“I’m hopeless at this.”

I’m sure you have heard of these expressions and perhaps more.

Stop it!

Simply by changing the way you think and feel about yourself, you will already be on the path to success.

Our thoughts give rise to our feelings. Our feelings influence our actions. And our actions determine our results.
 
Here’s to your success in life!
