Hey Everyone!

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!

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 loved how fun everything is. It just made me really happy to have one of their products! So going to this event was kind of a blast from the past! We had the honor of previewing LUSH’s fine ensemble for the holidays. I mean look at all those gift boxes? BTW they have the most beautifully wrapped gifts! They come in all shapes and sizes and colors! Super duper love.

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 curling them. It’s a new method that will promise you bigger and better lashes with just one move of your hand.

Here’s a litte mid week inspiration – Pinterest Hair Tutorials. They often look like a series of step by step pictures, modelled by beautiful girls that look like they came outta your favourite magazine and they make a pretty cool time waster (or not). Here’s my top ten favourites that will make you wonder “oh that’s how they do it.”

1. The Lace Braid 

hello

Love this one. She looks like she came out of Rapunzel and I love how the braids wrap gently around her side ponytail. Absolutely stunning! Find more about it here.

2. Three Braid Bun

First you look like an alien from toy story and then it transforms into a prom-able bun. Wow, impressive. Got it here. I love how this tutorial makes it look so easy.
