Hey Everyone!

Can you believe it? It’s already October. I’m sure you agree with me that 2014 is flying by super fast and soon it will be my favourite season of the entire year – the holidays and of course Christmas! With the holidays comes the season of giving and that’s when a lot of our favourite makeup brands create really cool gift sets. I was invited to the Sephora Singapore Holiday Press Day to see what is in store this year! This is an event I never miss because each prominent brand in Sephora holds a booth on this day and they fly their international representatives over to talk about what they have to offer. Here’s what I loved best from the amazing selection!

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 scent because I don’t see it anymore in the store. It used to be super popular though and I just love this brand so much. It gives me tons of memories and I am so happy it’s in Singapore!

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 Sarah Jessica Parker sorts out her clothes when she needs to move in Sex and the City. This sorting process will help tell you what you have, don’t have and even… what you’re missing ( I still can’t find my Naked2 palette :/ ). Once you have sorted everything out, why not grab a couple of organisers and put them in your drawers. I use drawer organisers from Ikea and they work fine. You can even go eco-friendly and diy it using egg cartons and painting over old cereal boxes.

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 someone has said “Roseanne, you’re beautiful but if you lost x amount of weight, you would look like a supermodel.” AND “Roseanne, you’re beautiful, but too bad you’re fat.” Trust me, I’ve had it countless number of times, even from my loved ones. I remember never being alright with my weight and worse still, the comments people made about me or the looks they gave me didn’t help either.

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 product is authentic or genuine. With so many things being copied these days, make-up is really no exception. There’s fake M.A.C, Bobbi Brown and other well known brands everywhere on the net and you really do have to be careful because you don’t know what these fake products might have inside them. You are putting these products on your face after all! That’s why I tend to avoid buying make-up on Ebay because you really never know what you might get. Instead, these are my current 3 favourite online stores to shop for make-up online that provide international shipping so it doesn’t matter where you live!

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!
