Enabalista 4th Anniversary x L’Oreal Paris Giveaway

*Update*

Congrats to @jensdazzvoq & @minkclara on IG and Huiibin Dumbyou on FB for winning the Keratin Smooth Range & Ombre Set respectively!

Hi Loves!

To celebrate the 4th anniversary of my lifestyle blog Enabalista and to thank my readers and partners for your support thus far, I’m hosting a series of giveaways and this is the 2nd of 4 giveaways! 😉

If you’ve been following my blog, you’d know I’m a major fan of L’Oreal Paris, having reviewed their EverStrong Hair Scalp System and their Fall Repair 3x Anti Hair Fall Treatment. So it gives me great pleasure to be able to host a giveaway with L’Oreal Paris! 😀

Keratin Smooth Family Shot B

Do you feel that some hair smoothening products are too “heavy” for your hair and weighs it down? Do you wish for a product that will smoothen your hair but still attain soft, bouncy hair with zero weigh down? Now you can, with L’Oreal Paris’ Keratin Smooth range.

The new Keratin Smooth range uses revolutionary Micro-Keratin [MK] technology that smoothen hair, fiber by fiber. This complete hair care system targets dry, rough and unmanageable hair for strand by strand perfection that last for up to 72 hours. That said, please do not go without a shower for 3 day straight in sunny Singapore. 😛

What’s this revolutionary Micro-Keratin all about? 

Micro-Keratin [MK] raises the bar with its unique micro form. Unlike usual Keratin particles that might be unable to precisely fill in the gaps in the hair fiber; the minuscular size of Micro-Keratin [MK] enables it to adhere effectively to the surface of the hair fiber to correct its irregularities without any excess, keeping each strand fluid and soft. See:

As an added benefit, the Keratin Smooth range contains Camelia Extract, a natural plant extract loaded with hydrating and softening properties so hair will remain soft and hydrated with each wash.

Complete your Keratin treatment with star product, Smooth Keratin Frizz Eraser. The first leave-in spray that injects Micro-Keratin [MK] into hair strands for fiber by fiber frizz control. Unlike most leave-in treatments, the Smooth Keratin Frizz Eraser eliminate weigh-down with it light weight formula for frizz control that last for up to 72 hours.

Enriched with Thermo-Protect Active, the Smooth Keratin Frizz Eraser effectively protects your hair from heat caused by blow drying, straightening and other hair treatments that can be damaging for the hair. Suitable for application on freshly washed hair or any time of the day when your hair needs a boost.

You guys are so lucky, I haven’t had the chance to try this product yet and it sounds absolutely amazing for frizzy hair in our humid Singapore weather! 🙂

Keratin Smooth Conditioner (330ml): $11.90
Keratin Smooth Perfecting Mask: $14.90

Korean Fashion with OKDGG

Hi Loves!

I’m a big fan of Korean drama and recently I’m crazy over Fated to Love You, which is a korean remake of the popular Taiwan drama of the same name!

Fated-to-Love-You-Poster-1 NosKU0p FatedToLoveYou_PC_bc1 Fated-to-Love-you-korean-dramas-37561448-1280-720 fated_to_love_you-0084 641

(Images taken from various sites as watermarked, last image from Couch Kimchi)

And you know what? Watching this drama is so effective for my exercise and diet plans. >u<
That’s because when I watch HOW SKINNY these korean actresses are (I swear their legs are like my arms, ok maybe I’m exaggerating…) That after an episode a night, I’d be totally motivated to go down for a run even when I am dead tired or resist that pack of biscuits that I considered munching on.

I digress.

I’m not sure about you, but I am totally inspired by Korean fashion and make up. Every time after I watch a korean drama with a great sense of fashion styling, I’d take notes, consciously or unconsciously and be inspired to dress more like them.

But the thing is, we don’t always have access to korean fashion here in Singapore right? And not all of us can afford the luxury of time and cash to fly to Korea every season. 🙁

But with the awesomeness of the internet and OKDGG, now we can shop Korean fashion and have them shipped right to our doorstep! OMG how awesome is that?! FREAKING AWESOME I TELL YA.

What is OKDGG

DGG (Delivery Guarantee Global)service provides global post service through the network of Malltail. We safely handle and deliver your order from South Korea and also support customer satisfaction for your international delivery. – Taken from the FB page.

So basically, OKDGG stands for OK, Delivery Guranteed Globally from South Korea! 😉

Check out their home page:

Korean Fashion with OKDGG 004Also categories for “Season(al) Items” and “On Sale items”.  Plus you should totes follow them on Facebook to be updated on which brands are having sales/promotions on OKDGG! 😉

So I went shopping on their site, and I fell in love with this brand 24mg (is it because I’m 24 years old? HAHA)

Nonetheless, their items are sooo casual chic, mad love!

Korean Fashion with OKDGG 24mg 003

You can find the brand by searching “24mg” at the search bar on the top. Easy peasy! The automatic sorting is by “Newly listed” as you can see under “Sort By” tab. However, you can also pick other options such as Sort by “Most Popular”.

Here’s 24mg newly listed items. Other options include “Most Viewed” and “Price Lowest/Highest First”.Korean Fashion with OKDGG 24mg 004

Lots of beauty items for sale, brands from Korea that I’ve never seen before at that! New discoveries! 😀

Here’s my OOTD, with items I shopped from 24mg!

The knit top is surprisingly comfy and not too thick for Singapore’s hot and humid weather, the bag and jeans are of good quality and all items including shipping fell within US$100! Each item was about US$30.

Enjoy shopping at OKDGG and let me know what brands you love there and why!

My Radiant Skin with Atlas Medical Laser & Aesthetics Clinic Vit C Treatment

Hi Lovelies!

It’s my third time back at Atlas Medical Laser & Aesthetics Clinic for their facial and this time round, it was just the Vit C treatment without the Silk Peel treatment! If you haven’t, check out the first session review and the second session review.

Previous times, the Silk Peel treatment would remove the dead skin, but when I experienced the Vit C treatment alone this time, it also includes the first step where the dead skin is gently removed.

If I haven’t already mentioned in the previous posts, I am saying it now, that I’m a big fan of the Vit C treatment because of the visible hydration on my face that gives me a beautiful glow, which isn’t something that I am just shamelessly saying, but also well commented by my friends when I meet them after the facial sessions. Hehehe! >u< Check out my bareface photo taken just before the Vit C session and after, with just sun block and home room lightning, no filter! Yes I usually do use filters for my Instagram photos, but not for these two after photos to show you how glow-y and radiant my face looks even hours after the facial for the day! I definitely recommend this facial to be booked for the day or the day before a special event and you want a ***glow***! ^^V IMG_6685-0.JPG

Some more of the swatches of the Play101 pencils and how well they hold up after a while and from smudging. Pretty well I must say! The dark red tend to smudge a little more because it’s more moist which is probably best suited for lips sticks. However the coral orange/orange and pink in shimmer holds up remarkably well! Etudehouse_Wisma_Opening_Blog_Review_Enabalista_Play101_Disney_Enabalista11_new

As posted on my IG, I scored a selfie with Pony after the cosy blogger interview session we had. You must be curious about the Q&A, here it is!

Interview with Celebrity Top Korean Make Up Artist Pony

Q1. What do you think is the 1 thing you have done right to become so popular?
PONY (P): In addition to trendy makeup in Korea, I also try other looks from the Western make up scene, such as my recent Scarlett Johansson cover makeup. I think that is why I am popular globally.

Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 12.03.02 am

Pony’s Scarlet Johansson Makeup Cover.

Q2. What’s your current favourite beauty trend?
P: Dewy moist makeup as it’s very dry in korea now.

Q3. What is your top favourite skincare product from Etude House and top favourite make up product from Etude House?
P: Skincare: Moistful collagen gel and mist
Makeup: Play101 as it comes in a variety of 50 colours to play with.

Q4. What is your secret to good skin?
P: 1. Don’t stress.
2. Before I do a scrub, I use a mask pack for hydration. And I also don’t do too much scrub.
3. I use fine foam when cleansing, so the bubble is soft on the skin and not pulling down the skin.

Q5. What is a big make up mistake?
P: Make up that is not balanced. I feel that the face is in a 100% ratio spread across the Eyes, Nose & cheek & Lips.
So for example, when the eyes has 50% of the attention, then spread the attention evenly 25% and 25% on the Nose/Cheeks and Lips. Don’t over do and have strong makeup all over your face, it will be too overpowering.

Q6. How do you recommend a fuss free make up routine for busy Singaporeans?
P: I think the Precious Minerial Any Cushion is great, as the foundation comes out evenly and applies really fast without having not too much on the face. This product cuts the steps of a normal foundation of application from squeezing and transferring to hand then face, so it is convenient. Then apply dark eyeliner and go for a bright lip colour.

Q7: If you could only choose 1 Etude House product to use forever, what would it be?

Etude House’s Cookie blusher. I recommend the warmer colours as it suits natural skin better.

spd_20120228212300_b

Q8: Can we expect a video on your Singapore trip to be uploaded to your Youtube channel?
P: Yes I will have a cute -style video of my trip in Singapore to be on my channel! 🙂

Q9: Will there be any future project with  Etude House?
P: I am a big fan of étude house. I hope that there will be more unique products such as the Play101 pencils to come unless Etude House doesn’t want to collaborate with me. *Sad Pouts*

Q10: How do you make makeup last longer in humid weather such as in Singapore?
P: Don’t apply too much make up, the eechnique is to make skin lighter by applying thin layer. Also I recommend using a sebum control powder to help control the oil and also using the Wonder Pore Freshener before make up.

Monochrome Fashion with Osmose

As a Fashion marketing & management graduate, Fashion is and means many things to me. Fashion is an expression of our personality, how we choose to style and adorn ourselves speaks about who we are and how we want others to perceive us. For my 24th, I had the pleasure to attend a Tag Heuer event (blog post coming up) and celebrate at Prive @ Keppel Bay with my friends. With the monochrome dresses I selected from Osmose, I was well dressed for the occasions. 😉

Decadent Scents with Penhaligon’s Singapore

A while ago Leanne & I popped by Penhaligon’s at Marina Bay Sands for a cosy and intimate Fragrance Profiling session. It was my first experience with Penhaligon’s despite passing by their ION store on several occasion, amazed by the antique yet quirky interior. Penhaligon’s is a perfect paradox; a blend of both traditional British heritage and modern technology & design to develop scents that are relevant to today’s lifestyle.

Penhaligon Singapore Blogger Review Recommendation Enabalista 018 Penhaligon Singapore Blogger Review Recommendation Enabalista 003 Penhaligon Singapore Blogger Review Recommendation Enabalista 008Penhaligon Singapore Blogger Review Recommendation Enabalista 009Penhaligon Singapore Blogger Review Recommendation Enabalista 013Penhaligon Singapore Blogger Review Recommendation Enabalista 014Penhaligon Singapore Blogger Review Recommendation Enabalista 012Penhaligon Singapore Blogger Review Recommendation Enabalista 011Penhaligon Singapore Blogger Review Recommendation Enabalista 010Penhaligon Singapore Blogger Review Recommendation Enabalista 007

Penhaligon’s is founded by William Penhaligon who started as a hairdresser at the famous Piccadilly Turkish Baths on Jermyn Street in London before his keen eye for business led him to open a new salon down the street a few years later. Thus Penhaligon’s was born when he started to create his own scents, lotions and potions for his discerning clientele.

At every Penhaligon’s store you will see two Royal Warrants from The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Edinburgh respectively, a mark of recognition for supplying goods and services to the Royal Family. This royal link was forged over 140 years ago when founder Penhaligon was appointed Royal Barber and Ferfumer to the Royal Court during Queen Victoria’s reign and Penhaligon’s was granted its first Royal Warrant from Queen Alexandra in 1903.

Today, Penhaligon’s scents are still made and bottled in England, the signature Penhaligon’s fragrance bottle echoes William’s original design; clear glass with a distinctive ribbon wrapped stopper. Even though Penhaligon’s is over 140 years old, exploring new fragrance technology is at the very heart of what they do.

Penhaligon’s Fragrance Profiling service is a fascinating and extravagant way to help customers find their perfect Penhaligon’s scent. This exclusive service is available at all their boutiques. The fragrance expert will first explore the customer’s fragrance tastes and build a personality profile while engaging in conversation. Then they will introduce the various fragrance families; citrus, floral, etc and watch the client’s reactions. Once a fragrance family is decided, further scented strips are presented to the client, narrowing the choices until only 2 are left. The client is then encouraged to try the two scents on their skin to see how they react to their skin chemistry. The final choice fragrance is then revealed. This experience normally lasts 30 minutes to a hour and is accompanied by tea, biscuits or even a glass of champagne. 😉

We were also introduced to their new (back in July, not so new by now, oops) perfume Tralala, inspired by the fantastical universe of Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchkoff, designers behind Meadham Kirchhoff. Meadham Kirchhoff’s shows have been scented by Penhaligon’s for the past nine seasons and Tralala marks the first signature scent collaboration. Tralala is an opulent, hedonistic blend created by Master Perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour.

HEAD NOTES: Aldehydes, Saffron, Whiskey, Ambrette Seed Butter, Galbanum, Violet Leaf Absolute
HEART NOTES: Carnation, Leather, Tuberose, Ylang Ylang, Orris, Incense
BASE NOTES: Myrrh Resinoid, Opoponax Absolute, Patchouli, Vetiver, Cedarwood, Heliotrope, Musk Vanilla

Review: Make Up with Mirenesse

Hi loves !

Today I had fun with Mirenesse make up products and beauty tool and I’ll be reviewing them here. 😉

IMG_6822.JPG

Mirenesse Studio Magic Blur Powder, Mirenesse Instant Lash Transplant & Mirenesse iCurl, Heated Eye Lash Curler.

IMG_6826.JPG

IMG_6823.JPG

Mirenesse Studio Magic Blur Powder comes with a small sponge for application. It’s meant to be applied after your usual foundation for longer lasting wear and for a more flawless effect as the powder is very fine and reflective. It’s my first time using a finishing powder in my make up routine because I usually apply liquid foundation, two way cake foundation at the T-zone and find it a little too much to include a finishing powder. I would recommend this finishing powder for those with fairer skin and also use it with a brush for a better effect. 🙂

IMG_6853.JPG

IMG_6854.JPG
Mirenesse iCurl is an effective eyelash curler. Personally i think this is more effective than the Panasonic eyelash curler as it is easier to use. It’s meow similar to using a normal eye lash curler. A tip if you’re scared to put a heated tool to your eyes is to feel the heat with your fingers first. You have to use it with 2 AAA (smallest) batteries , turn it on, wait 15seconds before the red heated pad turns white to indicate it’s ready for use. I curl my eyelashes before I apply on the mascara below. I would recommend this product for purchase! 🙂

IMG_6845.JPG

IMG_6830.JPG

IMG_6849.JPG

IMG_6829.JPG

Mirenesse Instant Lash Transplant is a very interesting product and I would say I am impressed that it has achieved what it promises on my thin and sparse eyelashes. Basically this is a volumizing mascara with two parts. First you apply on black transplanting gel then you apply on the magnetic lash fibers. I would personally prefer if this came in two separate sticks instead of connected to one, but this way it also saves space when traveling. 🙂

Review: Get Scared at USS Halloween Horror Night 4!

Two weeks ago I went down to RWS’s USS Halloween Horror Night 4 with blogger friends Sheena, HP And Shu Hui! These are the photos taken from the night… Personally I’ve been to HHN2, 2 years back and truth be told, it was scarier the first time simple because I’ve never experienced anything like that before! That said, my experience this year was undoubtedly exhilarating and extremely exhausting, lol. My silly brain thought I had the tickets placed in my wallet when… it was still home and I only figured that out when I was already at Vivo at 8pm. T_T So Sheena and I cabbed down to my house where my sister kindly brought down the tickets and the same cab took us back to Harbourfront and then to Sentosa. That said, thank God for Uber because they’re having a 25% off for cabs for October. If you haven’t tried Uber taxis, try is and enjoy $10 credit when you use my code “enat3”, find the promotion tab and input the code to redeem. 😉 When we reached USS, it was before 9pm and we met up with HP and Shu Hui for haunted houses Mati Camp & The L.A.B. Then we went to Jack’s 3-Dementia which is the first 3D haunted house and it was SO FUN. I loved it! Sheena and I were too exhausted and scared to go for Jing’s Revenge which left Shu Hui’s spirit shattered, we just chilled at the restaurant with a delicious pizza slice and drinks. 😉 My final  thoughts on HHN4? You have to try it at least once if you haven’t. It’s best to go with a group of friends and I think a pax of 4-6 would be best, so it’s cosy and you will always have someone infront and behind you (if you’re a weak girl like I am, hahaha). At The L.A.B Sheena and I lost HP and Shu Hui infront of us and I literally pushed the stranger guy behind me to go infront of me to lead the way. OOPS. >.< Stranger guy, if you happen to read this, THANKS again! <3 And 1 tip! When you think of all the street roamers/scare-rs as someone to take a selfie with, they become a lot less scary. 😛  Last 3 weekends for the HHN4! Go grab your tickets here if you haven’t! Thanks RWS for the sweet tickets.

Healthier Steps with Arch Angel Singapore

– Sponsored Post –

Have you ever came across a piece of news or a source of knowledge that changed your life and basically you just can’t ignore what you’ve learnt?

Well, my experience with Arch Angel is exactly like that. I stepped into the Arch Angel shoe shop almost totally ignorant about feet types and walking styles and stepped out empowered with all these knowledge that I am constantly reminded about with each step I take since that day. No kidding. Read on to find out more!

At the invite of Arch Angel Singapore, I went down to their store at Star Vista, a mall I absolutely love and have a lot of affinity with, even having once won an iPad Mini from them! 🙂

I was warmly welcomed by Arch Angel staffs Agnes and Owen. Owen is Arch Angel store’s Retail Operations Manager and a certified pedorthist. If you’re like me and wondering what pedorthist means, it’s the title of a professional who has specialized training to modify footwear and employ supportive devices to address conditions which affect the feet and lower limbs.

Owen proceeded to educate me about my feet type and walking style, which I am in turn going to share with you!

Foot/Arch Types

Feet-types

(image credit http://www.hughston.com

There are 3 basic Foot Types: High Arch, Normal Arch or No Arch/ aka Flat Foot.

Arch Angel Singapore Review 001

Owen used this iStep machine in the store to test my feet type and you too can visit the store to have your feet type tested for free. 🙂  Basically I only took photos of the monitor but there’s a sensor pad (like a weighing scale) on the floor that is attached so that the corresponding pressure applied is reflected on the screen.

Arch Angel Singapore Review 002

This is how the pressure of my body is spread out on my feet – red indicates the heaviest pressure and the photo shows that I rely more on my right heel. As you can also tell, I have a normal arch in between each foot. That is why Owen recommends me to wear shoes that has a a built in / add on cushion to allow me to bridge the ball and heel of my feet so that I have better balance and won’t tire as easily. 

Arch Angel Singapore Review 011

Here is an illustration of another type of feet (courtesy of one of the Arch Angel’s staff feet) with super high arch that the entire body is rested on 4 distinct point or ” like 4 separate islands” in Agnes’ words. So for people with such high arches, it’s even more important to have shoes with cushion for the arch.

Pronator or Supinator?

Arch Angel Singapore Review 004

This image shows shows the actual path taken by my foot from heel strike to toe off from the ground when I walks. Pronation and supination is identified during a gait analysis by a podiatrist or pedorthist.

Normal pronators with normal arch will see your ankle roll inward up to fifteen percent and push off evenly from the front of the foot. You would need a moderate pronation control shoe or stability support shoe.  Over-pronators will generally be flat footed. Your ankle will roll inwards more than fifteen percent and you will push off from the big and second toe only. You would need a motion control shoe or stability support plus shoe to control pronation. You may damage your muscles and joints if you ran barefoot, barefoot technology or shoes for neutral runners with standard insoles. If you are a Supinator (Under-Pronator) you would be landing more on the outside edge of your foot, have a high arch and tight Achilles tendon. A neutral cushioned shoe without stability devices and softer midsole to allow more flexibility for natural pronation, works for Supinators.  See more here.

Check out some of the styles of shoes at Arch Angel:

A pair of really cute red and orange Mary Janes.

Another pair of really cute Mary Janes in black and lace style strap.

Arch Angel Singapore Review 006

Naot is a shoe brand produced in Israel and is carried by Arch Angel shoe store. This also shows the unique Strobel Construction method used in some Naot shoes. In Strobel construction, the upper is stitched onto a sole shaped piece of fabric by a special machine. This is then lasted and stitched onto the outsole. The Strobel construction makes the Naot shoes very flexible and comfortable to the feet.

Arch Angel Singapore Review 008

YES. Even when wearing slippers with the arch makes a difference to your steps! IT DOES. My experience at Arch Angel was truly eye-opening. When I was wearing all the shoes above with the right size – 37 and with the cushion to fit my normal arch feet, they were very comfortable AND I could withhold pressure better and had better balance on my feet!

Arch Angel Singapore Review 020 Arch Angel Singapore Review 021

These are the wonderful cushions for moderate arches, sold at Arch Angel store, you can use them to add on to your own shoes!:

Take my word for it, I high recommend you to go pay Arch Angel a visit! Allow their staff to educate you on your feet type and walking style and advice what type of shoe size and style best fits your lifestyle and needs. You are not going to regret it. This information will only benefit you for a better and healthier you! 🙂

Arch Angel Singapore Review 012

They also have a machine that kills the germs in your shoes, so that it will be odour free. It costs a nominal fee to use this and it only takes 8 minutes.

Back Facial with Atlas Medical Laser & Aesthetic Clinic

– Sponsored Post –

Hi lovelies!

Recently I went back to Atlas Medical Laser & Aesthetic Clinic for a back-facial. Yeap, you didn’t read wrongly, back-facial is exactly as what it’s named, facial for the back! I am unfortunately plagued with back acne due to genetics (my mum and sister has it too) but thanks to Atlas Medical Laser & Aesthetic Clinic, I can have clearer and healthier back skin! 🙂

Dr SM Yuen suggested the same treatment as I did for my face, namely the Silk Peel Treatment and the Vit C treatment. Read all about treatments in detail as I blogged about in my previous post here. If you haven’t, also check out my first experience and product review here.

I found the back facial to be really enjoyable. It was less than an hour and my back felt very thoroughly cleansed from the Silk Peel treatment and super hydrated from the Vit-C treatment. It was definitely a treat (pun-intended) for my back! 🙂

 Not very comfortable to show you my “sexy back” since it’s un-sexy with the acne scars, hahaha, so here’s 2 selfies I took post-treatment! 😛

Wanderlust Strikes

Lately I think about the travels I’ve had abroad and a very strong urge of wanderlust strikes. I was very fortunate to travel to Japan, Hong Kong & London last year and this year I haven’t been abroad except for Malaysia…

I want to go to Paris, Italy (again) and Taiwan…

Let me leave you with a quote and pictures from my travels last year.

The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only a page.

One Pretty Baby

I just read about the news that Blake Lively is expecting a baby with Ryan Reynolds and honestly it’s really exciting because watching her for years on Gossip Girl as the sexy Serena Van Der Woodsen and now she’s gonna be a mother… It’s almost surreal as much as I am elated and excited along with all Gossip Girl fans as well. One thing’s for sure, the baby is definitely gonna be good lookin’ . Congratulations Lively & Reynolds! Check out Serena’s pregnancy announcement on her own US site, Preserve here.

John Frieda Blowout @ Next Salon

Hi Lovelies!

A while back, I was invited down for John Frieda’s Ultimate Blowout at Next Salon in early August.

I’ll let the pics do the talkin’! 😉

John Frieda Blowout Day @ Next Salon 001

Arrived at Next Salon at Ion on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, welcomed with a glass of green tea~John Frieda Blowout Day @ Next Salon 002

Check out all the relevant hashtags and accounts related to the event on Instagram: #JohnFriedaSG #JFSHairTransformation #JohnFriedaHair @JohnFriedaSG @NextTheSalonJohn Frieda Blowout Day @ Next Salon 003

Checking out the John Frieda Frizz Ease Original 6 Effects Serum touted to have 1 sold every 30 seconds. Wow.

John Frieda Blowout Day @ Next Salon 004

A close up of my flat / rebonded hair before the wash & blowout! 🙂

Couldn’t take pics whilst my hair was washed and treated to John Frieda Frizz Ease Flawlessly Straight range. Nonetheless it was undoubtedly a great experience! It was relaxing, aromatic and gentle. You don’t have to worry about this range being too harsh on the hair because the shampoo, conditioner and masque was definitely gentle! I can’t say how much it helps to straighten hair since mine’s already rebonded, but I definitely can tell it helps my hair to be frizz free. Plus the Frizz Ease range promises straight styling results for up to 24 hours. 😉
