The End of Something Beautiful

As Chaucer puts it, all good things must come to an end, and so it is with a heavy heart that we publish today our very last blog post here on TMF.

It was back in 2007 when Sophia and I decided to create a blog site to post our thoughts about beauty, fashion, food, and everything else in between. The lifestyle blog world back then was not as hip as it is now. Our first blog site,, was kept a secret for some time. We wrote under pen names and kept our identities hidden. We never posted pictures, only guides and just kept the blog in a magazine-like format. I remember it was around this time in 2009 that we did a "great reveal" and also decided to start
The time we were doing the "great reveal" at Peppermintkiss
Fast forward a few years after and here we are in 2015 writing our last blog post.

This blog has been a big part of our growing up years. It has evolved from being a simple blog site with a cutesy name (ilovepeppermintkiss) into a site for young professionals. It wasn't just a blog site anymore, it became, in a way, a sort of diary for us. Through TMF, you got to know us better and got to share in our joys and sorrows. It also became a platform for us to get to know different people from different walks of life, here and abroad. It expanded our world and gave us so many opportunities that we never even imagined could happen when we started our first blog site in 2007.

I know going into the details would only make me start crying so let me just take this chance to thank everyone for the wonderful nine years that you followed our blog.

First, thank you to our friends and family for the support you have extended during our blogging days. For the patience in waiting for us when events end late; for taking our outfit shots; for accompanying us to go shopping; for backing us up when we need new gadgets for our blogging needs; for understanding when we need some quiet time to write; for visiting the blog and telling your friends/colleagues to visit it; and generally for just being there and supporting us one hundred percent. Thank you.

Thank you also to our sponsors, our partners, media outfits, and everyone who ever extended invitations to us. We never thought our presence in the online world was ever significant enough to merit the trust that you gave us. You expanded our world and gave us so many opportunities we could only dream of. And for your belief in us and more, we are truly, greatly, thankful.

Lastly, Thank YOU, our readers, for visiting our site, giving comments and advice, for supporting our endeavors (our contests, our goals, our new projects) and just generally staying with us all throughout the years. Without you guys, TMF wouldn't have reached those heights you allowed us to reach.

It has been a truly wonderful ride. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and it is bittersweet that we have to say goodbye now. This site, will disappear from the online world, tomorrow, 19 September 2015. Also marking our 9th year anniversary in the blogging world.
The contents of the site, however will still be online, but will be available on

As for Sophia and me, you will feel our presence online, through our online accounts:



Again, thank you, thank you, thank you. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.

For the last time, this has been your two miss fits, Ninin and Sophia, signing off.
