Hey Everyone!

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.

To be honest with you, I’ve never been much of a bookworm and probably the only books I’d actually read are well, make-up books! Even then, I don’t have that big a stash as I prefer to do my learning online. However I do have a special few and today I have decided to share my current favourites. Special thanks to Pansing books who sent me them a month ago and now they’re both stacked on my bedside table whenever I feel like a good read. I think no matter what level you are, expanding your knowledge is always important. Bobbi Brown is my favourite just because I really feel a connection when I read them and I like how it’s all about embracing and loving yourself too.

Hey Everyone!

August through insta
For me, instagram isn’t just a place for me to post pretty pictures of make-up, it’s a place where I can share my life with all of you! I personally love reading about people’s lives through instagram on other blogs so today I thought I’d do one to pretty much to summarise my month of August! August was a particularly busy and amazing month for me so I’m excited to share my snapshots of the month!

First of all, one of my best friends, Rinku, is back from the States! We met way back in Middle School and we used to wait for the MRT bus together after school. We had a few classes together as well – including Social Studies and Psych! Good times with this girl! Got to watch Hundred Foot Journey the other day at The Cathay and snapped this selfie of us! The best thing about it is that it looks like it was taken with a proper digital camera right? Nope, it’s my Samsung GALAXY K zoom LTE camera smartphone! I wanted to take a moment and show you my recent amazing discovery called Selfie Alarm on my phone and how I get to take amazing quality selfies now without being afraid that I’m out of frame when I use the back camera! Of course, the back camera takes the best quality pictures but can be difficult to use because you can’t see yourself when you take a selfie!

I am a total Aveda fan at the moment and I’m sure you have seen how their Smooth Infusion products have totally transformed my hair. Seriously, I love how their products feel so natural and they work! If you don’t know yet, the art and science of pure flower and plant essences is the core of Aveda. Its beauty products are alive with the life force of plants and Aveda goes to exceptional lengths to be respectful to the earth. Ever since a hairstylist founded Aveda in 1978, Aveda’s beauty products –haircare, skincare and aromas-have been professionally developed and clinically tested, delivering high performance products that balance beauty and well-being for each individual.

Smelling good and fresh is so important, especially in this hot and humid weather. For me, perfumes are great but they always fade on me and aren’t great solutions to smelling fresh throughout the day. Plus, you don’t just want to pile on fragrances on top of a stench – that never works because you’re not eliminating the cause of the odor.

I’ve been recently coming back into the habit of spraying on a deodorant right after a shower and it’s a practice that I really believe everyone should get into. It can be so embarrassing to smell and you have something important to rush to in the evening like a date or meeting even if you can’t help it. To always be reassured, my current favourite to do the job is the Rexona Shower Clean FRESH Anti-perspirant Deodorant. It not only eliminates odor but it controls sweat too – which something perfumes cannot do.

I barely update you on what I’ve been up to, so today I thought I would share with you something special. Last week I was on the panel and one of the expert judges for the Guardian Health & Beauty Awards 2014! Among other expert panelists were Addy Lee, Chairman of Monsoon Hair Group, Shunji Matsuo, CEO of Shunjiu Matsuo, Dr. Gerald Tan, President of the Aesthetic Dentistry Society of Singapore and a few others so it was a complete honor to be considered up there with them in terms of beauty and product knowledge.

I never told you but I was also one of the judges for the Her World Beauty Awards and the Aesthetics & Beauty Magazine Awards this year as well! We attended the awards event that was held at the Shangrila and basically all the brand teams of all the brands stocked in Guardian stores were there. It was nerve-wracking to get up on stage and talk to everyone. Hey, I even did some presenting of the awards and shook their hands to take a photo. I’ve only seen my Dad do this lol.
