Hey Everyone,

Life teaches you different things in stages and I’ve found that often, they’re a sum of our experiences and struggles. For me, I’ve been realising two things lately – what both “constant” and thinking positive really means.

I know it’s silly but I live alone and for the longest time I was scared of the dark. It’s a rather large house and my parents now live overseas. At times I would feel super scared and I would immediately hide under the covers after getting ready for bed, jumping at every single sound. But at other times, I felt totally safe – and the house was just an inatimate object I lived in. This fear was pretty annoying because sometimes I would have it, and sometimes I would not. And it clicked to me one day at the idea of constant. The house is actually constantly just a house, an inatimate object – not scary, just void of feelings or actual life. Yet, it’s my own perspetives and fear that almost bring it to life. It’s like a puppy that doesn’t know what you’re thinking but you are the one who either thinks of the puppy as evil or good but the puppy is just sitting there with wide eyes wondering what you’re thinking when all along you are the one determining your own fear. The house will always be constant, always but it’s my perspectives that change. In that way, I realise that fear could be just something that I have created, almost totally from my own silly little head for things that don’t even deserve that fear.

Ever so often I find a great moisturiser worth sharing and this is definitely one. It’s The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting moisturiser that is The Body Shop’s latest launch. Although at first I did dismiss this as any other hype tooting skincare product when The Body Shop sent it over for me to try it, but after using it for a couple days now, I’m actually really liking it. This moisturiser has a very water-based gel texture that melts into the skin evenly and feels very refreshing. It is not sticky and feels cool to touch. I love putting it on in the morning because it instantly wakens you. I love the smell as well – reminiscent of an orange popsicle although I have to admit when I tried it at the store, I wasn’t a big fan. When applied on the face though, I really do feel the scent is much more pleasant and invigorating. Does it work to boost the radiance of my skin? To be honest, I do see myself getting more radiant but as I have mentioned on my video, I am on accutane and that might just be doing the trick. My skin does feel supple though so perhaps it does do something in that department. Overall, I do feel that this is a solid purchase for anyone with oily skin and looking for a water-based gel textured moisturiser that is an absolute pleasure to apply in the morning.

Whenever Shu Uemura comes out with a new collection, I get excited! They’re always so fun and quirky and full of life! This time Shu Uemura paired up with Yazbukey to create this iconic pop collection and I can’t wait to share it with you. I was particularly excited about this collection because I actually saw it on instagram prior to getting my hands on it and I have to say the eye and lip designs were certainly eye-catching. If you haven’t yet discovered Yazbukey is actually a fashion design house known for wacky pop jewel designs and what I see body part motifs. It’s certianly iconic in its own right and such a cool and unique brand that Shu Uemura has chosen to collaborate with for their Spring 2015 collection. You can read more about Yazubukey on their webiste, here.

One place I’ve always wanted to visit and got to check off my list this trip was going to a provincial town called Grasse on the French Riviera. It is undoubtedly the perfume capital of the world and where Gabrielle Chanel herself made the iconic fragrance – Chanel No. 5. In fact, it’s where most “noses” (those who are in charge of creating the formulas for your signature perfumes) are trained in Grasse to distinguish between thousands of scents. In fact, 2/3 of France’s natural aromas are produced here and most iconic fragrances are made in Grasse! It was a priviledge to include this on my trip to the French Riviera and I can’t wait to share with you 7 Facts I learned about perfume while in Grasse. Let’s start!

Hello from London! I’m currently on my annual London trip to see my sister with my family and to enjoy this amazing place so apologies for my lack of updates. I’m also visiting a few other countries while I’m here, mainly Switzerland & France take advantage of the cheap budget flights around Europe. I’ve been hard at work filming my vacations and my Switzerland vlog is up already on my youtube channel! I’m heading to France tomorrow morning and will start in Nice first!  I don’t want to leave my blog dusty so I thought I would let you know my top 5 picks to go make-up shopping in London! I hope it comes in handy if you’re thinking of visiting here too.

The perfect sunscreen for me is one that is lightweight and blends super well so that it leaves no white overcast and still offers me the protection I need. It’s been blistering hot in Singapore these days and a sunscreen is of utmost importance for everyone to be integrating in their skincare routine. A great sunscreen prevents an array of skin issues like pigmentation and even wrinkles further on in life. The main issue is that most sunscreens look super white on the skin and are too oily which makes make-up junkies like me super sad because how am I supposed to put make-up on something like that? Thankfully, I’ve found two sunscreens both from KOSÉ that are super lightweight and leave no overcast at all. They’re the KOSÉ SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Milk SPF 50 PA++++ and KOSÉ SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Gel SPF 50 PA++++ that I’ll be reviewing today.
