If you haven’t already known, Bath and Body Works is in Singapore! This is so exciting for me because I’ve been familiar with the brand ever since I was a teen back in Middle School. It used to be precious back then because the only way to get it is if you were in the states for summer. Everyone would have either a warm vanilla sugar body spray or a sweet pea one hidden in their lockers for after P.E. Back then, I remember telling my Dad to get the body spray for me (partly because I wanted to be like everyone else) and he got the one in cucumber melon which I think is now a discontinued —–> Read More

Happy Valentines Day! Don’t you hate it when your nail polish top gets stuck and you can’t open your favourite bottle anymore? I know I do. It happens all the time and that’s because nail polish gets on the sides and when it dries, it basically glues the top to the bottle. No matter how hard you try to open it, it usually won’t budge. I recently got my nails done but had to touch up a bit on an area that accidentally chipped off and the exact polish I needed had this problem. Thankfully, I looked online and discovered the hot water method and decided to see if it worked!

I hope you’re having a great weekend! With the new year, I think now is a great time to spring clean our makeup collection. This keeps our expired make-up in the bin and totally room ready for whatever is on our make-up wishlist! Besides getting our bins ready here are a few of my tips to keeping your collections tidy.

1. Sort out your make-up

When it’s time to take my collection for a little clean through, I begin sorting my make-up. I have one pile for blushes, foundations, lipsticks etc and the last pile will be for make-up I can’t use anymore. It’s sort of like when —–> Read More

You totally need to watch the video and I seriously can’t agree enough. I’ve never really talked about my weight and to be honest, I’ve never been the skinny girl or the girl with perfect legs and arms. I’m kind of the odd one out especially here in Singapore where I feel most of the population is stunningly skinny and the newspapers are full of London Weight Management ads and slimming centres. I’ve tried this diet, that exercise but for some reason I just end up figuring myself out and asking what in the world am I trying to do. I can’t count the number of times where —–> Read More

Shopping online for make-up can be a lot easier than you think and there are actually many online stores that sell make-up and beauty products with international shipping. I used to shop online for make-up tons when I was in Uni – it was the perfect way to de-stress and the cheaper prices online compared to counter prices didn’t help either. I think that  when it comes shopping for make-up online, you don’t have to worry about whether it ‘fits’ – the main concern is whether the product is ship-able (perfumes and some liquids like nail polishes are sometimes not allowed to be shipped internationally by the seller) AND even if the —–> Read More

So the color of the year 2014 happens to be Radiant Orchid – a fuschia looking purple – according to Pantone. I like the color purple but it’s not something that I wear everyday or think about sporting when it comes to make-up. You would be suprised though that purple does suit most skintones. Although radiant orchid isn’t the typical shade of purple, people’s opinion of the color varies – it could be a lilac, to a fuschia to even a lavender. I thought to myself – what would be uber helpful and I thought a little guide to incorporating this new color of 2014 would be best whether it’s your —–> Read More

When I first heard of cleansing oil – I thought it was the most ridiculous thing ever. I get oily fast and blotting sheets are like my best friends, so the idea of putting even more oil on my face was way out of the question. I always thought it would clog my pores even more and lead to a crazy amount of breakouts. Lately though, actually make that a few months now, I’ve been using a cleansing oil to take off my make-up before cleansing again with my normal cleanser and I have found it to be one of the best inventions ever. It is definitely something not to be intimidated —–> Read More

There are a few ways that I make sure that I keep on top of makeup trends! Other than watching what people are doing on the street, I also make sure I observe what make-up is being put on the runways and done for celebrities at big award ceremonies like the Golden Globes 2014 that recently happened. Here are my top favourite looks from the Golden Globes and what I think is trending.

1. Pop of Color Lips

Thankfully, this is probably my favourite trend of all. A pop of color on the lips whether it be pink or orange or even a burst of red is what I like best. I mean, it’s the Golden —–> Read More

It’s that time of the month again! Time to touch up my roots and give my hair a new revamp of color. I simply loved my experience at Organic Hair Professional so I decided to give them another visit to see how well their organic hair dyes perform. I mean, I’ve never tried an organic hair dye before, much less knew they actually existed. Smelling strong chemical laden hair dyes have always been the norm so I was really excited for this visit! By the way, I also just wanted to share with you how I book my appointments – it’s through this nifty website called Tab a Salon at www.tabasalon.com!

Today I thought I’d share some of that fun stuff in my events round-up. If you aren’t familiar, I do attend events quite often to see what’s new and trendy! With the holidays around the corner, you’re probably wondering what to get for your best friend or sister. Here’s a great guide to just that! The first event was with LUSH cosmetics. LUSH has been here in Singapore for not more than a few years and is a popular fun and natural soap and body care haven.

As you know, I’m a huge LUSH fan. I remember in college when I would go to LUSH at least once a week in Melbourne and always walk out with a new soap or face mask. I just —–> Read More

When I first learned how to curl my lashes, it was a disaster! The metal felt too cold and it left me wondering why would any girl do this to themselves! Fast forward to now and I really can’t live without an eye-lash curler and curling my lashes before my mascara is always a must. I don’t have lashes that curl themselves and look naturally voluminous. They’re what I call “horse lashes” – they stick out straight over my eye – just like a well..horse. I know it sounds pretty crude to compare myself to a horse..but hey it’s true. Thankfully though I’ve found out a way to curl lashes better than just —–> Read More

I can’t say I don’t have a massive perfume collection, I do. Almost every semester brought me to this one perfume store in Melbourne Central during every exam season and buying a perfume because a stress releaser for me. I guess you could say it wasn’t too healthy for the wallet but I just love smelling good. I think every woman should and the beauty of it is that smell is so personal – not only in scent but also the memories that each perfume carries. Out of my entire collection – you could say three stand out the most. Whenever I open any of these perfumes I’ve chosen today, it brings back a wave of memories. It’s like opening this huge time capsule. I thought it would be fun to show you some of —–> Read More
