Hey Everyone!

Sunscreen should be part of your everyday routine. Applied before your make-up and moisturiser, sunscreens should be in direct contact with the skin. Why? It prevents you from all sorts of ailments including pre-mature aging and even skin cancer. For a more indepth overview of all you need to know about sunscreen, do click on my earlier post right here, click away:

Back to Basics: All you need to know about Face Sunscreens & Sunscreen Tips

Getting back to the review, the Leader’s Clinic Senstive Sun Cream is one of my favourites. I’m on my second bottle and I have’t found a sunscreen yet that has treated me as well as this one has. This was given to me by Leader’s Clinic and I was not compensated for this review. Honesty is a given. Rarely am I willingly to go out and re-purchase a product that has been sponsored to me before. The Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Mineral Makeup was the only one thus far and it looks like I can’t do without this one either. Let’s get on shall we?

Hey Everyone!

I’ve gotten a lot of enquiries lately on whether I can buy something from LUSH and have it shipped to wherever you are since LUSH isn’t sold in Singapore and a few other places as well. I’d be like your Singpost.

I’m willing to do it I guess but I want a show of hands to know whether you would be interested.

Basically, you would put in an order with me (what items you want to buy from lush), I’d give you a price breakdown + shipping cost + $4 for my time and with your approval, you’d transfer payment to me while I go out to LUSH and get your items and mail it to you.

Hey Everyone,

We all love a sunny day. Not a cloud in the sky, it’s bright, it’s beautiful and it’s the perfect weather for picnics, walks in the parks or a cheery day in the city. Little do we know that if we don’t have protect our skin from these wonderful rays, it could lead to a multitude of harmful consequences. Today, I’m going to assume that you know nothing about sunscreens for the face or face sunscreens or even spf and combine all you should know about sunscreen in a post – including sunscreen tips, why sunscreen is so important and common sunscreen definitions. I’ll then show you the face sunscreens I have and use on a daily basis. Let’s get started!

Hey Everyone,

Let’s say you’re a newcomer to a beauty blog. You’re a little unsure who this person is, you don’t know if what they’re saying is true and perhaps you feel a little insecure that you’re trusting new media. What I want to argue for is why? In fact, The Straits Times recent Urban article published last Friday, “Beauty and the Blog” did spotlight Singapore’s top beauty blogs but subtly qualified them as unqualified for the beauty scene.

What do I think? It’s freakin’ ridiculous. Do you know why exactly they did that? Unless you have no background in media whatsoever, the media channels of today are in a big competition for funding and advertising. Blogs not so much but blogs yes so much are becoming threats to mainstream media – whether it be News, TV or even online media portals. Blogs are supposed to be special interest but publications like Urban and The Straits Times are making us look like liars. In their recent article, they spotlighted a 29 year old, not a credible survey source, just a random 29 year old for their main quote. This random 29 year old executive stated, “Magazines are more credible than random blogs because journalists do more research and provide objective opinons.” Apparently, she was quoted because she uses $1000 creams. Of course that woman who is able to afford that $1000 cream represents the whole of Singapore. Not.

Hey Everyone,

I don’t know about you, but I have an absolute obsession with perfumes. If I walk into a department store, I’m instantly gravitated towards perfumes and out comes my sniffing nose to sniff pretty much all the perfumes the store has to offer. I also think smelling good on a daily basis is important to your overall image so today, I’ll be talking about my current perfume collection – a little obsession that has overtaken make-up for the meantime and has turned my vanity into a little bottle house.

YSL Parisienne Eau De Parfum

I usually tend to go for fresh or floral scents, so this one is a bit out of the norm. I bought this as part of a pack on sale and I think I was a bit on a shopping high because I honestly don’t wear this out much at all. The YSL Parisienne smells like berries, powdered berries, and it’s a very light scent. Not a light scent by ways of a refreshing one, but more so that you can’t really pile this up and smell overpowering. It’s subtle and slightly alluring. However, it develops into a funny musk smell throughout the day so I stopped wearing. My friend refers to this as the “grandma” scent. I don’t know if I disagree.
