How to Create your very own Home Spa

Hi Loves!

I don’t know about you, but I love going to spa because of the relaxing ambience and luxurious pampering. Don’t you think that it’ll be wonderful if we can integrate elements of the luxurious spa into our own home and bathroom? Here are my ideas on how you can create your own Home Spa in your bathroom! 🙂

1. Get Inspired

First of all, decide on what concept you would like. Do you prefer clean and fresh decor, blue and comfy or brown and cosy?

2. Get Scented

A Spa’s relaxing ambience is created with the warmth of lighted candles and soothing scents. Decide on your favourite scents, candles and candle holders to create your own scented haven.

3. Wrap up in Style

Hotels and Spas always use thick and comfy towels, now that’s the way to conclude your Home Spa experience!

Firefly In the Light Musical Review

Hi Loves~

You might have read in a post I published last year about the musical Firefly in the Light, well if you haven’t you can check it out here.

I attended the musical with my sister which was at the Arts House Chamber. The story is about Wendy, a talented school girl who wants to pursue her dream to be a singer and she leaves her hometown, only to be riddled by challenges and bog down in life… While her childhood friend and lover Jake becomes very successful in a career that she dreams of. It’s very poignant because Wendy could not realize her potential.

I believe that this musical reflects the fears of Shayna Toh, the prodigious musical writer who penned both the music and the lyrics. The title “Firefly in the Light” is ominous in that as the Firefly flies towards the light, it can mean death.  Nonetheless, I believe these fears are unfounded, as I believe that many, including I, continue to wish Shayna courage and success as she overcomes her fears and continuing pursuing her dreams and showcasing her talents.

Regarding the cast, I wished that the leads Rachel Tay and Linden Furnell had more chemistry. One thing of note, the supporting/ ensemble cast (Ivan Chan, Chia DeZhong, Sri Widati Ernawan Putri, Siti Maznah, Stephanie Phang) for this musical were superb – they had incredible chemistry, full of humour and gave their all for the performance. I feel honoured to be able to witness this one night only beautiful performance put together by such talented local cast and crew and I wish all of them continued success!

Thank you Firefly in the Light team for the kind invitation.

Fresh L.A. Look with Chez Vous Hair

 

Hi Loves!

A while back I headed back to Chez Vous for a new look, I didn’t have any particular look in mind and just trusted hair stylist Jamie to do what she’s good at. 😉 She told me that I’d look good with blond highlights, so I just went ahead with it! Very adventurous, I know. I very surprised by the look at first because I wasn’t used to the blond / ash highlights. But majority of my friends remarked that its a fresh new look and that they like this look… I sorta feel like Elsa (more specifically should be the younger sister Anna, hahaha) from the Disney animated movie, Frozen. I think that with this look, I feel like an L.A. girl, if I may say so myself, LOL.

Check out my “new” look
(well, not so new anymore since I take forever to post it up, lol):

Marie France Bodyline PRO-FREEZE Review

2015-04-07 17.22.21-2

Hi Loves!

Recently I had the pleasure to visit Marie France Bodyline to try out their PRO-FREEZE treatment, which is a new treatment that uses fat-freezing technology to safely and effectively remove unwanted fat cells.

How PRO-FREEZE works is exposing the fat cells to an extreme cold temperature, causing them to be frozen and degenerated. These degenerated fat cells will be eliminated from the body via the body’s own metabolism system and can be permanently remove up to 25% of the unwanted fat in a single treatment session, thereby reducing the thickness of the fat layer.  It’s an alternative to liposuction and is most effective for areas such as tummy, waist (love handles), hips (saddle backs) and inner thighs.

It is said that visible result in loss of fat can be seen in 3 weeks following the treatment, with more significant results shown between 3 – 6 months. People with major serious illness and sensitive to extreme coldness or pregnant are not suitable to undergo PRO-FREEZE.

The entire PRO-FREEZE treatment takes about 45-60 minutes. After a quick consultation with the staff, I decided to try out the treatment on my back thighs, the starting 5-10 minutes was very cold and I could feel the strong suction from the machine. After that, my body was accustomed to the cold sensation and suction and I was just resting head down on the bed while the PRO-FREEZE machine did all the fats-busting work on my thighs, hahaha! The staff applied a very generous amount of gel and a gel layer on my skin before attaching the machine, which she says, helps to cushion my skin from the extreme cold. After the treatment, the area was very cold and I was a bit worried that the cold will result in condensation and causing an unsightly wet patch on the dress I was wearing, but it didn’t. 🙂 However there was some residual gel left at my lower thighs, so I advise a thorough wipe down after the session. 😉 I was advised to drink 2 litres of water for the following 3-4 days and to also follow up for 2-3 sessions for the most optimum results.

The MFB staff that attended to my also mentioned that Fann Wong enjoyed this treatment after her pregnancy to regain her svelte figure. I would recommend this treatment for a fuss free fat removing experience. 🙂

If you’re wondering about Marie France Bodyline’s customers satisfaction, you’ll be happy to know that Nielsen, a leading global consumer research and measurement company, conducted a consumer survey on 105 women (aged between 22 and 40) who underwent body contouring treatments twice a week, over six weeks (in November and December 2014) at Marie France Bodyline. Being one of the well-trusted, leading slimming professionals in Singapore, Marie France Bodyline has taken the bold step to release the results of a consumer survey on slimming solutions.

 The results?

 93% of women found that their clothes were not as tight and 92% were satisfied with the overall experience*.

 So why would these findings mean anything to you if you did not undergo at least a session to experience the treatment, right? So….

 Marie France Bodyline is giving a very special promotion of TWO body contouring treatments priced at ONLY SGD$50.00! This not-to-be-missed promotion is valid from now till 30 April 2015. Terms and conditions apply.

For appointments or more information, please call 1800-7777-111.

Thank you WOM PR and Marie France Bodyline for this review invitation and promotion for my readers!
