It’s been a desire of mine to upgrade my public speaking skills this year. So it couldn’t have been more apt when Nuffnang offered me the opportunity to attend a course by Speech Academy Asia along with 7 other influencers, where we learnt and honed our skills in public speaking, hosting and interviewing!

Growing up, I’ve had the chance to host school wide events such as National Day or Chinese New Year events. My most recent stint was hosting for Jeunesse Singapore’s launch in Suntec before a 1000 strong crowd. However I have never been professionally trained apart from the rehearsals and pronunciation checks by school teachers. So to be able to pick up practical tips like; standing with your feet firmly planted on the ground, watching your posture, pausing to think before speaking spontaneously and thus minimizing mistakes and superfluous words, engaging the audience has been invaluable – these tips and advice coupled with practice with peers within the classroom setting has greatly increased my confidence and skills for future public speaking opportunities. I know that I am now prepared for gigs when the opportunities arise! 🙂

Special shoutout and thanks to Shawn and Matthew for arranging, teaching and coaching us – your presence, advice and tips will go with us a long, long way. I hope we will be students that will do you proud.

If you’d like to improve your confidence and communication skills, I highly recommend Speech Academy Asia. They are currently offering $700 (Official launch at $1200) for their SLP Club Membership (Speech Linguistics Programming) that has a complimentary 12 unique sessions of confidence building, life skills, communication skills, public speaking etc during this post-soft launch. Each session comprises of 3.5 hours, once a month. For $700, you will be receiving training throughout one year. There will be more exciting programs coming up in the next few months which the members will be able to enjoy discounts! Visit their FB page for more information!

Thank you Nuffnang & Speech Academy Asia for the opportunity to develop my public speaking skills! ❤️

I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of dry shampoo. So much so that after hearing me sing praises for dry shampoo, my friend calls me “an advocate for dry shampoo”!

colab-cola-sheerinvisible-range-review-and-colab-extreme-volume-review-enabalista_0004

I’ve discovered the wonders of dry shampoo only about a year ago and I’ve never looked back since! There are many reasons why I love dry shampoo but in short, dry shampoo helps keep my scalp and hair fresher for longer, it even keeps my hair looking chio-er with more volume and smelling good!

  1. Dry Shampoo keeps hair fresher for longer

My preferred dry shampoo of choice is COLAB™ Sheer+Invisible’s Monaco Fresh Fragrance with lemon, mandarin and light amber scents. Even when I don’t wash my hair in the morning and I need to get ready and out of home in a jiffy, a spritz of COLAB™ Sheer+Invisible Range’s Monaco Fresh Fragrance in my hair makes my hair smell fresh, like I just came out of the shower and I love it!

2. Dry Shampoo adds volume to limp hair

Another reason why I love dry shampoo is because it dries up any oil in my scalp and it adds volume to my hair at the same time! So any limp hair is revived and got me looking like I stepped out of a salon after a blow out. If you’re all about adding volume to your hair, I recommend COLAB™ Extreme Volume, here I’ve got it in the London Classic Fragrance with rose, magnolia and woody musk scents.

3. Dry Shampoo makes hair smell fresh and good

Last but not the least, dry shampoo removes any hair odours and adds a fresh fragrance to my hair! Just like how I pick my perfumes, depending on my mood, I like to pick COLAB™ Sheer+Invisible in New York in  Fruity Fragrance with citrusy, rose and violet notes on sunny days and Tokyo Oriental Fragrance with Mandarin, Jasmine notes when I’m feeling a little more feminine.

Some days when I’m out and about for work and blogging activities the whole day and want to keep my hair looking fresh and smelling good, I bring my COLAB™ Dry Shampoo out with me! Other beauty babies I bring with me to keep me looking and feeling good includes a facial mist to keep my skin hydrated, hand cream to keep my hand moisturised and lipstick to keep my lips always looking on point! 😉

I also know girlfriends who place their dry shampoo at their work desk, so after going out for lunch,  they will use the dry shampoo to remove any “odours” and greasiness from lunch!

And that’s me on a regular day, out and about for work, blogging and personal appointments! Gotta thank COLAB™ for hair that’s tamed, oil free and though you can’t tell, smelling good.
