The Body Shop Expert Masks Dinner @ Joie & More | August Recap

Hi Loves!

It’s sure been a long time since my last monthly recap! Hopefully my next recap won’t be 3 months away, LOL. Let’s dive straight in, shall we?

TheBodyShop’s Expert Mask series has been great! My faves of the 5 are Himalayan Charcoal Purifiying Mask which not only de-clog pores but also smoothens skin texture as well as British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask which leaves my skin hydrated, refresh and I always love a rose scent!

Lunch at Toa Payoh’s Mr Bean, this laksa is really good! Also, this stirrer is really cute, didn’t buy it tho! I always like to see new nail trends online for inspiration for when I do visit a nail parlour to get my nails done, which frankly, isn’t often nowadays, haha.Was in Toa Payoh for a CPD course, speaking of which it’s time for me to attend my yearly courses again. The duties of a working adult are endless. And I love my ERA office at Toa Payoh because they offer free coffee and desserts! I wish they had this at our main Mountbatten office! Some of the informative slides about landed housing during the CPD class. Lunch with Shirley at the White Bee Hoon restaurant!Got a Pineapple for a client who was collecting keys for their resale home! It’s meant to roll on the floor for prosperity and you can enjoy the sweetness of the fruit after!  Coincidentally chancing about Mark at the office!  On the same early August day after a busy day, I met up with my gfs Smita and Leanne at The Library for bites and drinks!  The drinks are conceptualized around interesting personalities, such as Marilyn Monroe menu offers sweet flavours. I opted for Sun of Fuji which is great and as I’m typing this, I’d like to revisit this place again! Actually there are a lot of cool bars around Singapore which I haven’t yet explore, so maybe I’ll check those out first, LOL.Our drinks! Wine, Sun of Fuji and Gin and Tonic.With Smita and Leanne. <3 It was a belated birthday gathering for us as we’re all July babies! I know I know, I’m taking almost an entire year to update. Blog procrastination has been real, and I’ve said many times that I will step on it, LOL. I will really try! 😛Our bites! These are delicious too!

Was invited for Aldo’s FW launch at Paragon and I got myself these pair of lovely blush pink heels which I’ve been loving and gotten many many compliments! Yes, their SS2017 is now out, you can check them out in stores. 🙂

Also checked out Uniqlo’s LifeWear exhibition at Dempsey and saw many beautiful collaborations such as the Carine Roitfeld one above. They also opened their new flagship at Orchard Central which is awesome because you literally can find everything to suit your fashion needs! If you’ve been following me on my IG, you’ll know that I’ve been checking out their recent Minnie Mouse collection and got a few pieces for myself!

If you’re searching for comfy and trendy casual shoes, be sure to check out FitFlop at Wisma!

I really love these traditional flaky skin Teo Chew style mooncakes from Thye Moh Chan soooo much! I was actually sad that they only sell these for a limited time only and couldn’t purchase after the season. Be sure to check them out for this year’s Mooncake festival, they’re actually quite affordable at $25.80/box for a set of 4 which you can mix different flavours!

Was quite obsessed with my Bitmoji and here are some that made me smile!

My sister joined the Pokemon Go craze and here’s a pic of me with her Charmander. LOL.

Another day at Toa Payoh and here’s one of my fave dish Lei Cha at the HDB Hub basement food court. Also got my nails done in Watermelon style!Had a CG gathering, although we’ve multiplied now, those were fun times! <3Dinner with le sis, we love this Chic-a-boo outlet that’s newly opened near our place!Coffee Frappe at The Coffee Bean at Marina Square while waiting for clients to arrive or a meeting.
Not quite sure what this was doing in my August photos record but anyway he’s too cute not to post, in case you’re wondering where this is from, it’s from A Bug’s Life, one my favourite Disney animations! OOTD, in my silver slip ons from Fit-flop.Dinner with my friend Royce, we had Teo Chew porridge at Beauty World.

 I had the privilege to attend Anna Sui’s FW event at Sentosa and the event space was SO LOVELY. The bloggers and I in attendance couldn’t stop snapping away not only at the products but at the entire set up! One of my all time fave perfume is Anna Sui’s Lucky Wish, it’s a lovely powdery floral scent that’s neither too light nor strong. I recommend you checking it out!

Attending DFS Beauty Class at DFS Orchard and tried the Lancome Energie De Vie which was very refreshing and saw this really cute Michael Kors mini bagpack which was not cheap tho, it was around $700? You could get a bigger work tote with this price, but I guess it’s a really cute colour and design. Also got a fun goodie bag with HR mascara and IOPE blush, tried both out and they’re pretty good, you can buy these from DFS! 🙂

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Attended Clozette’s Diva event at Bugis+ and got a cute metallic tattoo and grabbed dinner with Fenny and her BF after!

Met up with Fenny for dinner and thanks to her friend, we got a 1for1 deal via his Entertainer App at ARC Cafe! The duck confit is not as good at Saveur but the beef dish was not bad!

Attended Bottega Verde’s event of the launch of their Custom Moisturizer, simply get your skin reading done at their Suntec outlet and an order will be made in Italy before sending it over to Singapore for your collection. I’ve used mine as a day moisturizer as it contains SPF and while it’s cream base it is lightweight for Singapore’s weather.  The same evening, Fenny and I visited Woow’s new store at Plaza Singapore, have you tried this refreshing rainbow dessert ice yet? 😉

Thanks to Base Asia Entertainment and Nuffnang, my sister and I attended the Premiere night of Annie the Musical which I enjoyed very much!

Went for a long overdue facial session at Atlas Medispa, always enjoy my sessions there. 🙂

Saw some kids playing at the fountain close to home and kinda wish I was a kid and able to do something like this!

Had dinner at home with the family consisting of takeaway and we kinda over did it with too many items! 😛

Celebrated Netccentric’s 10th Anniversary at Red Dot Museum with some fellow influencers! Last picture with my manager Christina who’ve left, wishing you all the best babe!  Joined Leanne’s Mac Masterclass and Robinsons styling event at Robinsons at Heeren and it was great fun with the girls, Fenny and Raa!

Funny story to tell, I use to be able to take every bus back home from the closest MRT station but then this bus 26 changed route and I would end up taking it multiple times and alight at a bus stop further away and end up walking the longer way home and it almost always happened to be on my heels! >.< After about 3 times, I would carefully avoid 26. 😛

Ending off this month’s recap with some of the beauty goodies sent my way!

TheBodyShop TeaTree Duo is great for battling acne outbreak. Recently, I had a skincare outbreak because of a product I used which was too oily for me, and I immediately use the 3in1 TeaTree as Mask and my skin improved rapidly the next morning.L’Oreal constantly comes out with new hair innovations and range, this OleoTherapy consists of Oil Infused hair products, made with Oils from 6 flowers which boasts to restore dull, dry and damaged hair. For more information check out hereThanks to my friend Sybs who went to Korea, I got a stash of Innisfree products, and she highly recommended this Sebum Oil Free Primer which really does keep skin matte all day. Thanks to my gfs who got this set of Furla pouches or my birthday I’ve found these to be so handy and useful!

Some of my favourite products for August, and the silver tube is the body gel that goes with Refa massager to keep skin moisturized and taut.

That’s all for August’s recap, hope you enjoyed it! Leave me a comment if you have any questions or suggestions and I’ll get back as soon as I can! <3

Couldn’t resist trying McDonald’s Salted Egg Chicken Burger – I was lucky that I tried one after the complains that the salted egg was too little – so I got one with quite liberal amount, yay!

BAD CAFE THAT SHALL NOT BE NAMED

Not even gonna name the cafe, both Belles recommended this cafe but that day we went, it served up lousy lemonade – granted they replaced it but their service still sucked nonetheless. You’d notice I usually don’t complain about stuff on my blog cause I don’t like to give air time to shitty things but man – this cafe is crap and if you know which it is, don’t ever go back again and I can’t wait to pop a champagne on the day they close. Birthday Celebrations & Batam trip | Enabalista July 2016 Blog Recap_017 Birthday Celebrations & Batam trip | Enabalista July 2016 Blog Recap_018

Is it worth it? $10 is too much for me to shell out for a piece, but it definitely hydrates my skin intensely.

Ok, so the mistake we made was to take up the resort’s driver’s offer to go on a “day trip intinerary” with him and he gave us ALL THE SHITTY RECOMMENDATIONS. 🙁 So other than our Batam Plaza choice, he brought us to a bad massage place and this terrible dinner place, urgh.

Lunch at Whitegrass @ Chijmes is Bomb | June Recap

Hey hey!

The months have been kinda crazy, to say the least and I’ve most definitely neglected my blog. 🙁 Now that crazy January is over, and I’m slowing easing back to a somewhat more normal schedule and quitting on Korean dramas and Youtube binge watching, I’ll be compiling each month’s happening into one post each, so we’ve got 8 to go considering this is June 2016’s recap! XD Just compiling the photos for June into this post and looking back at the fond memories made me smile, I hope you’ll enjoy this post and come to enjoy the upcoming months’ updates as much as I enjoy looking back at them! Also, I’m more convinced to get active on Youtube moving forward (promise I will once I clear these 8 posts!) because it will be way more fun looking back via videos! I won’t be linking to brands and websites as I’d usually do (to save time, really) – but if you see any brands / products / whatever that a quick google doesn’t answer, let me know in comments below and I will do my best to get back to you.

6 Bags Every Lady Needs

We don’t wear the same pair of shoes for every occasion in life. There are work flats, event heels and sports shoes. Similarly, in my opinion every modern lady should have these 6 bags in her wardrobe to carry her through the week.

(1) The Everyday Work Bag

(1) Work Bag

A roomy black Boston bag like this is perfect as an everyday and work bag because it can carry most essentials like wallet, diary and water bottle. Black is also a colour that goes well with all outfits and suitable for most (if not all) occasions.

(2) Day Clutch

(2) Day Clutch

If you’re planning to head out for a quick lunch appointment or coffee run, it’s not always necessary to carry your entire bag – a handy day clutch is perfect for some cash and tissues. Also, don’t you think that this sweet floral design is really apt for the Lunar New Year period and Spring season that’s coming right up?

(3) The Weekender

(3) Weekender 2

The Weekender is my favourite type of bags – maybe it’s because I like spacious bags that allows me to carry lots of things without having to separate them into 2 bags and it’s definitely also because these bags are great for staycations and as on-flight bag.

(4) The Crossbody Bag

(4) Crossbody

For off-work and weekends, it’s recommended to switch out the everyday work bag for something more casual, laidback and pretty – to suit the mood! Bucket bags have totally been making a come back – it’s the perfect cute and trendy crossbody right now.

(5) Cosmetic Bag

(6) Cosmetic Pouch

This bag maybe small but it’s definitely essential. Instead of rummaging your bag for your lipstick and blusher, store them in this square pouch. You can also grab the entire pouch and make a quick trip to the toilet before leaving work instead of awkwardly holding them in your hands. You can even pick from multiple cute prints for this pouch!

(6) The Tote

(5) Tote

The Tote is probably the most practical bag of the lot – it’s roomy without being too bulky, it can double up as a work bag and if you pick a soft colour like beige, you can carry it for both formal and casual events.

Lately I’ve been able to go out in style on the weekends with these 2 cute clutch sling bags.

6 Bags Every Lady Needs | Enabalista_0000Each bag came with stuffing and wrapped in paper to keep the bag in shape and protected.
6 Bags Every Lady Needs | Enabalista_0001The cosmetic pouch can store quite a fair bit of items! Here’s a vintage looking clutch bag.6 Bags Every Lady Needs | Enabalista_00036 Bags Every Lady Needs | Enabalista_0002 And this is the other cute pink clutch sling, which matches well with white or pastel outfits, it also comes in other colours if you’re keen!

Thanks Que Du Bon for sending these bags over, be sure to head over to their Facebook shop if you’re keen in any of the bags above. Be sure to use code “Ena” for 30% off with min. $20 purchase online! Valid until 31st March 2017.

Of China Blue Dress & Comfy Grey Tops

I don’t know about you, but I very much prefer shopping in person in stores over online shopping when it comes to clothings – you certainly can’t touch or feel the material or see the size and fit of a piece on clothing online! That said, I consider myself blessed because my body size usually fits whatever the fit model dons on line (S or M) although I am a lot shorter then them, haha. So when I do come across a credible online website that ships affordable fashion – It makes me excited to share it with you!

The website in mention for today’s post is FashionMia. I picked a Round Neck Blue and White China Dress and 2 grey tops which I’ve been loving and wearing of late. Gotta say the material for its price is really decent and most importantly – comfortable!

Was out grocery shopping for dinner with my sister while in my dress hence the supermarket background photos you’ll see below. You can find the grey hoodie top here. For more dresses here and tops here.

Happy shopping!

Kapten & Son; for the adventurers and global citizens

How we dress is a way of self-expression and how we want others to perceive us. I’ve always worn a watch since I started going to school and I’ve always picked watches that express who I am. When I was younger, pink and white were colours of choice, they were colourful, cute and fun. But as I grew older, I gravitated to black colour as it’s not only easy to match but suitable for all occasions, totally practical. However recently I’ve taken a strong liking to rose gold as it’s not only a lovely but trending and fashionable colour.

My recent favourite watch of choice is from Kapten & Son’s in Campina with a Mesh band, black face and in rose gold colour. I love how the brand is designed for the adventurers and global citizens, folks who revel in freedom and enjoy travelling.  I also love how my watch is perfect for work appointments but also looks chic for casual events.

Grab your Kapten & Son watch of choice on their website here.

Camo Corset

Feels like it’s been a while since I’ve posted!

Today’s series of photos are featuring D’Corselet’s camo corset, one of my favourite piece from their store. If you’re looking for corsets, D’corselet with the largest collection of corsets in Singapore, stocking even sizes up to 6XL will not disappoint!

I’m really into camo print recently. I think that the camo print trend from the 90s revival is really back – and I particularly like it when brands have a new twist to the camo print, like a unique print or updated mixture or varying camo colours. You’ll be sure to see me sporting more camo in my IG updates. 🙂

Coming back to this particular camo corset that I’m sporting in this post, I’m wearing a S, although a M size would fit better. The difference isn’t huge, except when you see the adjustable ribbons at the back, the gap is bigger for S size whereas for M it’s smaller – however as I pair my camo corset with a white top, it’s ok to have bigger gaps behind.

Wearing a corset really does accentuates a woman’s curves, which is why some girls love wearing it for special events and halloween. But boy, is a corset tight. The honest truth is that I wore this out for pre-dinner photo-taking and I took it off for dinner. I’m obviously new to corset-wearing, so perhaps I’ll fare better and last longer in a corset the next round! 😉

Would like to mention Shermaine who was very helpful, informative and attentive while assisting me in trying out the corsets and deciding my picks in store! If you’re new to wearing corsets like I was, I highly recommend factoring 30-60 min during non-peak hours to try out the corsets in store! 🙂

Special thanks to D’corselet and D’corselet’s ladyboss for the camo print corset – be sure to order yours on their website online before 20th October if you’re planning to get one for Halloween – or you’ll have to visit their physical store at #02-54 Far East Plaza.

Belated Updates | CNY 2016 Happenings!

Alright, so I’m just gonna get the white elephant out of the way first by addressing a very obvious issue that this blog post consists of updates that are about half a year late. In case you’re wondering why, it’s because majority of the events I attend/products sent to me for review are non-obligatory, meaning it’s not compulsory for me to blog about them. So I procrastinate on these updates. That said, I always make it a point to update more promptly on my Instagram (@ena_teo) However because I’m invited as a blogger, I still want to make it a point for me to blog about them! I’ve been on a hiatus on July taking 2 trips abroad with friends so that’s caused quite a delay in my blog post schedule as well. And if you’ve read my previous blog compilation here,  you’ll know that I’m changing to a blog compilation method instead of updating by event/product review so I can be more prompt in my blog updates as well! And if I can say so myself, I think it makes for a more interesting read as a casual reader although it also means that if you’re googling for a specific event/product review that led to my/this post, you’ll end up reading about a few other topics/things that you’re not here for… Well, you gain some, you lose some I guess? Hopefully more gain than loss in my case and yours! 😛 And oh, I’m also counting down to my blog post updates because I’m slowly but surely migrating over to the Youtube platform, I’ve created a Youtube channel (Enabalista) long ago, bought a vlog camera earlier this year and recently acquired a ring light! So you can totally expect my reviews and sharing to transit from blog text to video format! Exciting times huh!!!

Enough with the long introduction, whilst I was prepping the photos for this post, I’m reminded of the interesting Chinese New Year (CNY) events I’ve attended and once again, amazed at how time flies, it literally seemed just like yesterday that the new year started and now we’re way past the half year mark already?! On one hand I’m convicted of what a sloth/major procrastinator I’ve been and yet on the very same note I am very eager to transit over to the weekly vlog format to keep up to date (closer to date, at least, lol) my current/future happenings! Alright, #leggo!

Lazada First Blogger Bazaar

So Lazada invited me for their very first blogger bazaar (and it took me half a year to update about it on the blog, yes I feel bad T-T). And we had a blast just checking out a lottt of items that they stock on their site!

My V-Day Goth Look

So #ICYMI, this year’s V-day coincided with CNY and to celebrate my very single-ness, I decided to dress up in a kick-ass attire and make up to head out to KFC dinner with my sister. >U<
CNY VDAY 2016 Enabalista _0000 My eyesight isn’t the best, so I like to snap photos of the board and zoom in on my phone and read the signs, LOL.
CNY VDAY 2016 Enabalista _0001 Our very very disappointing KFC dinner. The chicken pieces were so small and unsatisfying! It was especially bad cause they were running all these ads that really had my hopes up. This is at the Bedok Central outlet (not Bedok Mall). T_T Cheesy BBQ Meltz was the saving grace though! It’s just sad that chicken at KFC is not as tasty as before? 🙁 It was so bad that I didn’t ever want to step back into KFC. KFC has lost so much of its game these days and it’s so sad cause we literally grew up with Macs and KFC. Well, at least thank God Macs is still relevant? HAHA. I feel nostalgic even for fastfood, I know. T_TCNY VDAY 2016 Enabalista _0002 Check out this girl.

Penhaligons x CNY

Penhaligons invited a small and intimate group of beauty bloggers over for a session at their ION boutique and we indulged (there’s no other way of expressing it) in their fragrances and I seriously enjoyed hearing the staff regaling all these beautiful stories behind each of the scents he was introducing. Such a great story teller he is!
Penhaligons CNY Tea Enabalista_0000Penhaligon’s seriously gorgeous Empressa marbled packaging.

Penhaligons CNY Tea Enabalista_0001Empressa is inspired by the beauty and nacrescence of pearls, precious silks and fine fabrics transported through London to adorn women of power and influence. Shimmering with bright pink pepper, succulent blood orange, dewberry and peach, Empressa’s floral heart is lustrous with the dusky pinks and soft whites of rose and neroli. The sensuous drydown of patchouli and vanilla is sweetened by a blend of cocoa, amber and maltol, with warming cedarwood and rich sandalwood providing depth and sensuality.
Cr: Penhaligons website.

I wasn’t kidding when I say Penhaligon’s staff regales us with stories of their fragrances – they literally speak in these terms you just read above. How else do you define one’s experience with such fine stories and fragrances other than using the word indulge? 😉 #rhetoricalquestion

Penhaligons CNY Tea Enabalista_0003 Penhaligons CNY Tea Enabalista_0002Penhaligons CNY Tea Enabalista_0004Every item a collectible! Penhaligons CNY Tea Enabalista_0005So much love for the tiny fragrance bottle!
Penhaligons CNY Tea Enabalista_0006 Yeap, that’s the awesome Penhaligon’s staff with an impeccable memory and story telling ability. I can’t recall his name (sorry!) but I think he was based at the MBS outlet. He is so good that if you’re thinking of purchasing a perfume and want to indulge in a great Penhaligon’s fragrance profiling experience, I highly recommend calling in first to book an appointment first with this fine Indian staff.Penhaligons CNY Tea Enabalista_0007 Love the box set, so exquisite!Penhaligons CNY Tea Enabalista_0008 Unboxing my Empressa perfume. <3

Nespresso CNY Dinner |  Umutima & Tanim

Have you ever had such a great dining experience that it leaves a deep impression? Nespresso’s CNY dinner was one such dinner. It might have been the excellent cuisine (as an experience at Saint Pierre would warrant nothing short of that), the invigorating coffee or vivacious dinner company but one thing’s for sure, the dinner was nothing short of memorable!

T_TNespresso CNY Dinner Enabalista_0018 Nespresso CNY Dinner Enabalista_0019 Ended the night with a cuppa orange caramel coffee. Don’t ask me how I still remember it without even referring to any notes after 6-7 months. The brain has an amazing way of recalling things. Or maybe it’s because I liked it so much but I couldn’t drink more than 2 mouths cause I didn’t want to risk insomnia. (So much for typing this out at 5.34am after a cup of ice lemon tea after dinner, well at least it’s Saturday tmr and my first appointment is at 2.45pm.

The Face Shop CC Cushion

TheFaceShop CC Cushion Enabalista_0000(Repost from my IG:)
The Face Shop launched 2 new CC cushions, CC Intense Cover Cushion with 25 hours-lasting moisture and coverage effect and CC Ultra Moist Cushion with 25 hours-lasting moisture and radiance effects. 💁🏻💦Having tried both, I am really impressed with the coverage from the Intense Cover Cushion without feeling too heavy however I personally prefer a more natural (medium coverage) and moisturizing foundation which is the Ultra Moist Cushion version! 💕 The CC Cushions comes in Pure Beige(V103), Apricot Beige(V201) and Natural Beige(V203).

Also, yes The Face Shop has gone through a branding face lift, a sleeker and modern look! Will be sharing more about their recent (yes, not half a year ago, lol, hopefully not half a year later >U<) Tampines One opening and brand revamp!

Fast forward half a year later, I’m still loving the Ultra Moist Cushion and now we have more cover choices!

Thank you TheFaceShop for sending the love! <3

The Body Shop British Rose Collection

When you’ve got your face covered, you can’t neglect your body. (Pun intended). Over the CNY/V-Day period, The Body Shop launched the British Rose collection and my favourites from the range would have to be the shower gel and body scrub. The scent is just lovely without being overly sweet or heavy~! Check out the entire range and prices here.

Yellow Cup Coffee Date with Belles | #ThrowbackThursday

Sometimes I surprise myself. These days the blogging mojo has been so strong, I’m back to publishing 2-3 posts a week. And that means I’m finally down to blogging about really old backlog and in this case, a coffee date with my belles, aka Christabelle and Clarabelle from 2 years ago. I did a quick check, while fortunately Yellow Cup Coffee still exists (kudos to them and also a testament to their staying power), I can’t promise that the interior and menu is still the same. While prepping for this post, I recall the fun times with belles at this quirky cafe and the food and coffee are fairly decent and reasonably priced (still so, see their menu here) for a cafe brunch. Visit their website for more information here. Maybe it’s time for a revisit to this under the radar cafe soon!

How times flies, really. Clarabelle and I are both July babies, so we’ll be meeting up to celebrate our birthdays this month, hopefully I won’t be taking another 2 years to post up this year’s celebration photos. 😛

Can’t wait to clear all the back log posts, really! I’ll be moving to a new blog update system where I’ll post up events, reviews, thoughts and what-nots on a weekly or monthly schedule rather than breaking them down on a singular event/review basis because I simply don’t have the luxury of time for those and simply have too much inertia when I think of how tedious / much work / time it takes to do so. I’ll definitely be posting up weekly vlogs on my Youtube channel here – check it out if you haven’t! Let me know if you have any thoughts on the upcoming changes! 😉

Get Your Eyewear Profiling with Silhouette at W Optics

Have you heard of Eyewear Profiling? Like fragrance profiling, it is about finding what your preferences are and narrowing down the various options to a few picks that would be suitable for you. I had the pleasure to go through an Eyewear Profiling session with Silhouette eyewear brand at W Optics (Suntec) and here’s what went down and my thoughts of Silhouette eyewear. 🙂

In case you have not heard of the brand, Silhouette is an Austrian brand of sunglasses and eyeglasses, founded in 1964. Its headquarters and main production site are located in Linz, Austria.

The Eyewear Profiling session started with answering a questionnaire about lifestyle and preferences. You can find the online style test here.

Silhouette Eyewear Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0034Do you need eyewear for work or everyday use?

Silhouette Eyewear Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0036What type of eyes  and face do you have?
Silhouette Eyewear Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0035There is also a paper version of the style test.

Flawless Selfies with Casio TR60

Have you ever wondered why some girls always have flawless selfies on their IG / social medias? Apart from the Mei Tu Xiu Xiu app, it’s no secret that the Casio TR60 is the perfect selfie camera with its built in beauty filter function! I had the chance to review the camera and here are the photos and my take! 😉

Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0024Petite in size and pretty in purple.

Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0028Extendable frame which forms a good grip for selfies.

Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0027Extendable frame also forms as a good stand for wireless/”shoot with phone” photo taking function.

Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0026The two dots on the side of the camera indicates the “selfie pad” which allows you to toggle between beauty filters and modes.

Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0021The menu page with the few options which allows wireless download to phone and

shooting with phone.

Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0022The camera album allows storage of about 100 photos, which isn’t a lot. You will need to transfer the photos to the phone and delete the photos on the camera regularly. P.S. These are the photos I took during my Genting trip, you can check it out my blog post of the trip here! 😉
Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0023Send to phone function, will need to download the Exilim Connect app on your phone and then link the camera to the phone wirelessly.Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0030Connect the phone to the camera’s wifi.
Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0031Then open the Exilim connect app on your phone. In this case, I am using an IPhone. Once the phone is connected, you can view photos on phone or use remote capture – allows you to use your phone as a remote and click to capture photos on the Casio TR60.

Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0020Casio TR60 Makeup mode allows you to adjust the skin tone and smooth skin filters.

Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0019The screen displays the few modes at the top which you can click to use accordingly: makeup, mirror, wireless, modes, menu.

Casio TR60 Camera Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0014Under modes, you can pick from various options!

I do love the Casio TR60 camera very much for the flawless selfie functions and how pretty and petite the camera is. However at $1400+, it is a huge amount to shell out for a selfie camera, which is why I didn’t purchase after the review.

Thank you Casio Singapore, Nicole and Oglivy PR for providing the Casio TR60 camera for the review!

Will be posting about the launch of Casio’s newer selfie camera model, Casio TR70 in another post soon! 😉

Stay Hip & Chic with BIG Hotel Singapore

Over the recent labour day holiday, Christabelle and I enjoyed our extended weekend at boutique hotel, BIG Hotel Singapore. Super love the chic, grey textured walls and its Pinterest-worthy minimalistic interior. <3

Belle and I made full use of our 1D1N with girly activities such as playing with new make up, photo taking at the alley ways/spots near by the hotel, thai food at Aroy Dee for dinner, The Daily Scoop (at School of the Arts) for desserts and masks (mutiple, yes, haha) time before we called it a night. During our fruitful staycation, we were also appropriately (mostly me, haha since Belle doesn’t really drinks coffee) with Nespresso and Cafedirect coffee, it’s sweet that BIG Hotel has a Nespresso machine in the room. Have I mentioned how much I love the chic coffee corner? 😉BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0003 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0008 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0010 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0009 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0006 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0007 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0004 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0005BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0013BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0012 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0011 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0014New cosmetics from Etude House Play 101 Sticks / cushion concealers, Laneige BB Cushion, K-Palette Rose Eyeliner, Kate Tokyo Eyeshadow Palettes, Stenders Handcream and Lipbalm.

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0035

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0026BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0022I opted for Strawberry while Christabelle opted for Durian (Mao Shan Wang) and Avocado!

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0023 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0024Headed back and washed up with Estee Lauder’s new micro cleansing foam and if you don’t already know about Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair serum, this stuff is the magic potion of the beauty world! I use it on nights when I need to calm redness/irritation/clear up blemishes on my skin, and it always works like a charm!

I brought along Origin’s Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores, and found out that Christabelle is a huge fan of this brand and been using this mask regularly which helps with her oily skin type, once a week. Origins is an au natural skin care brand, for all you nature loving skincare fanatics! 😉

And post Origins charcoal mask, we nourished our skin with The Face Shop animal masks which I got last year and they don’t seem to be retailing any more now, but man, these smell of peaches, soooo good and its also pretty hydrating, love! Check out other The Face Shop masks currently available on their site here.

The next morning, a wake up coffee is in order…
BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0027We were well fuelled by Nespresso’s  limited edition coffee Tanim De Chiapas from Mexico.

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0034 *satisfied grin*
BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0028And YES I had also lugged over the new ranges of skincare goodies; shower gel, scrub, body creams from The Body Shop to try out during the staycation, best decision ever! Our bathroom and room were filled and smelled so good of summer fragrances from the Pinita Colada (Pineapple and Coconut) to Polynesian Tiare (island flowers), they’ll all launch by June 9. 😉

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0033A very cosy and bubbly lobby atmosphere when we left, ideal for friends or family to gather before heading out.

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0031

The comfy bed and sheets made for a great night’s rest. All in, BIG Hotel is an affordable, chic option that I’d recommend whether you’re considering for a local stay-cation or visiting from abroad. Staff we met at the hotel were also very pleasant and courteous – they definitely made our stay that much sweeter. Plus, it’s located conveniently close to Bugis MRT (if you’re taking the train down from Changi Airport, from the green line) and walking distance to Dhoby Ghaut and Little India where you can explore more of Singapore whether for shopping, dining or cultural spots. If you’re keen, you can also check out my alma-mater LASALLE College of the Arts which is literally behind BIG hotel, if you’re in luck you might coincide your stay with graduating students’ exhibitions. happening from now, 20th May to 1st June!

Thank you BIG Hotel & Chelsea for arranging the stay for review!

Weekend Getaway to Genting Highlands!

Hi Loves!

I’m back again! 😀

Yesterday I posted about my review of Aaron Crow’s Fearless Magic show, the highlight of my recent weekend trip to Genting Highlands. Today I’ll be posting about the rest of the trip and cover everything else we did! It’s gonna be super image heavy! 😛Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0000Traveling with my sis for this trip! On the coach~
Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0001My cute personalized passport cover thanks to Tiffy!

We reached the hotel early in the morning around 5am, caught some sleep before we headed out around 10+am~

Checked out Terminal 2 cafe just at the lobby of  XYZ wing.

Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0005

Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0004They had nice bread, but servings were huge. We didn’t want to be too full as we were expecting a buffet lunch at Coffee Terrace~

Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0002Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0003 So I snapped a few photos and we headed to check out other food places.

Like 1 Meter Teh!
Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0006

The porridge smelled amazing, so we decided to get a bowl to share…Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0007Teh & Chicken Porridge. Honestly the porridge was so-so, it was the fried onion that made it smell heavenly and taste good! 

Then it was time for buffet lunch!!!

Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0008Once again, our SOP – array of cuisine on our table! 😀

Close ups of the delicious food… Once again, the buffet did not disappoint, both in quality and quantity. 😛

This time round, I explored the Coffee Terrace place with Chiu Yen and sis and found this sightseeing spot:

Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0014 Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0015You can pay to view further… but I didn’t la. Haha.

Then I was trying to practise selfies/wefies on my new Canon G7 camera…

Enabalista Resorts World Genting Review_0000Apparently my sis is a pro at it! 😛
Enabalista Resorts World Genting Review_0001Here’s one of me after a few takes. But as you can see, I can’t seem to take on with one hand only… I need more practice. Haha.

Next we headed to Snow World!!! I know I sound super excited now, when I was initially not. But I unexpectedly had a lot of fun for what was supposed to be for kids/children, hahaha. All you need to have fun, is to have a child’s heart! 😛
Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0000 Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0001We went just shortly after Easter, so it was Easter themed! 

Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0002The Dress Up Corner where we changed into our jackets and shoes.

Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0003Here’s one with the group before going in! The plan was to take 5-10 min before it was open to public, to snap some photos before we can have fun after! Photos and cameras are not allowed (except for media) inside Snow World as they have professional photographers inside and will charge you for photos, should you want.

After this we couldn’t snap photos when the Snow World opened to public and we kept our cameras away, but I did get to seat the slide which is only for people before 65kg, and we also played with the red sledges and it was a lot of fun! It’s those kiddy level kind of intensity which is just perfect for me because I don’t like scary rides, hahaha.Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0010Group we-fie outside Snow World~

Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0011And another!

After Snow World, we went to catch the Fearless Magic Show, which I’ve already covered in the previous post. After the show, we had dinner at Bubbles & Bites!

The name Bubbles & Bites originates from the fact that the restaurant serves simple western food with an exquisite list of drinks―including sparkling wines imported from such countries as Italy, Spain and France. Hence the word“Bubbles.”  True to its name, Bubbles & Bites makes the perfect chillout place for effervescent young people, families and all others who believe great food and good ambience go hand in hand.

Let’s check out the place!

After the K-session, sis and I headed back to our room to rest! It was 3am by the time we prepped for bed and slept.

The next morning we checked out some of the art at the lobby and I took shots for my OOTDS before we headed for breakfast at Food Factory! 🙂

Sweeten Up with Etudehouse Berry Delicious Collection

Hi Loves!

Feels like it’s been a while since I’ve posted something beauty related, isn’t it? I’m currently on a mission to clear my 100+ backlog blog post , as I’ve mentioned on my personal FB page. I don’t know exactly how I’ll do it, except it’s gonna be a lot of sleepless late nights with music blasting from my laptop and a lot of blogging in between property appointments from home or office. 😉

Introductions aside, I’m really excited to share about Etudehouse’s latest Berry Delicious & BIG foundation spring summer makeup and beauty collection! First of all, Etudehouse’s Berry Delicious collection comes in this amazingly adorable berry themed packaging, which honestly, which girl can resist? Secondly, they come in the sweetest, trendy colours that are totally on point for this season – pinks, oranges, dark reds and even a unique green lipstick colour that turns pink on your lips! How’s that for special?

ETUDEHOUSE BERRY DELICIOUS COLLECTION REVIEW_0000

Also, have I mentioned before that Etudehouse makes the best formulation and hues that’s just perfect for asian skins at an affordable price point? I’ve always been a huge fan of Etudehouse makeup for their cute concept, impressive formulations (lipsticks! eyebrow pencils! cc cushions!), trendy collaborations such as with PONY makeup and K-celebs and thus I have raved and recommended their makeup to a lot of my friends and readers. This collection is no different, though it probably doesn’t need much promotion – if it is not already sold out by now! XD

ETUDEHOUSE BERRY DELICIOUS COLLECTION REVIEW_0001Check out my two picks from the Berry Delicious Colour in Liquid Lips Juicy ($17.90 each) RD306 red wine colour and OR207 – a fresh orange colour perfect for summer, I tell you!

ETUDEHOUSE BERRY DELICIOUS COLLECTION REVIEW_0002

Check out these swatches for Berry Delicious Strawberry Souffle Nails ($5.90 each):

ETUDEHOUSE_BERRYDELICIOUS_SOUFFLENAILS_SWATCH

Don’t ask me which is my favourite because all of them are so wearable for summer! I told you the colours are on point for this season right?  If I have to pick only 5, I’d go for pinks #1, #2, #4,  wine #8, & orange coral #9. 🙂

ETUDEHOUSE BERRY DELICIOUS COLLECTION REVIEW_0003Some of the makeup on the table for us to check out~!

Armed with its signature Big Cover technology, the solution contains two different sizes of cover powder – one 35nm in size and the other 10 to15nm in size – both much smaller than the usual 250nm cover powder found in regular concealers. The combination of two vastly smaller sizes of cover powder helps effectively provide coverage while minimizing caking and clumps thanks to the smaller sized particles. The BIG COVER concealer collection is available in four variations for your different needs – BIG COVER Concealer BB, BIG COVER Cushion Concealer, BIG COVER Tip Concealer and BIG COVER Concealer Kit.

I wish the BIG cover foundations came in cushions – I’m so used to them now, nonetheless the formulation gives stronger coverage, has a dewy effect and also lasts all day.  I personally love the Big Cover Tip Concealer,  I think it’s well designed with the q-tip design, I use it for my under eyes dark circle and I also think the Big Cover Cushion Concealers are a really nifty idea for concealing, colour correcting and highlighting with a soft cushion tip. I have yet to play and explore with the Play 101 sticks in Jumbo size! I will get some inspiration and share more over this Labour Day weekend on IG. 🙂

Big Cover Concealer BB SPF 50++/PA+++, SGD26.90 / 30g.

Big Cover Cushion Concealer SPF 30/PA++, SGD20.90 / 5ml.

Big Cover Tip Concealer,  SGD 11.90 / 10g.

Big Cover Concealer kit, SGD15.90 / 5g.

PLAY 101 STICK_MULTI COLOUR, SGD24/ 7.5g.

PLAY 101 STICK CONTOUR DUO,  SGD24 / 1.7g x 2.

Rue Madame, All things French and Fabulous

This is a guest post contributed by Sabrina from Rue Madame, I trust that you will enjoy the post, while you gain insights on the French style boutique! 😉

I know that when I’m feeling for some Parisian inspiration, the one stop shop has to be Rue Madame. The French style boutique has an incredible selection of French fashion designers, European and US designers all showing their own individuality. A Parisian heaven in one super cute boutique! The store has an inviting presence with colorful pieces that I just want to go through every single piece. Just incase I find that extra special piece.

RM Store

What really caught my eye was the Figurine Doll Necklaces by Servane Gaxotte! I have never seen anything like them, they are so adorable and I am obsessed! It’s handmade and no doubt a cute statement piece that is stylishly chic and playful. I could wear it with anything, even with a nice plain white t shirt so that the doll pops out more.

Spring is a time where I can express my feminine side with fancy frills and floral fun.  I especially love the flirty off shoulder pieces they carry, and I know that it’s going to be a massive hit this Spring. Valerie Khalfon does an elegant collection of the off shoulder that is decorated with floral embroidery. So feminine and girly and perfect for Spring. 

The boutique has a true Parisian feel to it and offers something for everyone. All collections are one of a kind and handpicked by Rue Madame in order to stand out from the rest. Even better yet they have now officially launched their online shop I know I’ll be visiting more often now.

Thank you Sabrina and Rue Madame for making this guest post possible.

Be sure to catch the show along Orchard road tomorrow night and all the fashion event related promotions and activities for the months ahead! 😉 

Get ready for one of Singapore’s largest fashion festival in two weeks’ time, as Samsung Fashion Steps Out @ Orchard 2016 [FSO 2016] returns for a six-week extravaganza from 25 March – 8 May 2016.

Organised by Orchard Road Business Association [ORBA], FSO 2016 is presented by Samsung, the festival’s Official Technology Partner.

In conjunction with FSO 2016, Samsung is also launching its latest Samsung Galaxy S7 4G+ and S7 edge 4G+. Samsung Fashion Steps Out @ Orchard 2016 is supported by Singapore Tourism Board [STB], with MasterCard as the Official Card.

This year’s edition promises to wow visitors to Orchard Road with much to do, see and shop.

Stepping into Spring

With the Lunar New Year only a day away, I thought it fitting to share some of my recent outfits that’s perfect for the festive season. Since young, it’s been a tradition for my family and I to don on new clothes for the new year, but I’ve never been clear or sure of why that is the case. A little google research online revealed that it’s a traditional belief that new year heralds new beginning and so we wear new clothes to celebrate. Well for me, I’d take any reason to shop for new clothes! 😛 As you can see, I’ve already worn these outfits so they won’t be “new” per se, I’ve actually purchased and reserved one set of outfit, a top from my friend, Aggy’s online label Tact.sg and a red leather skirt from Stradivarius for the very first day, which you can expect to see either on my Instagram or an upcoming blog post. 😉 For this post, I’ve picked this Begin Again dress from C/MEO, an increasingly popular and cult fashion brand from Australia with chic silhouettes and cuts which you can purchase from Revolve. You might not have heard about MARYLING, as they’re new to Singapore but have been rapidly expanding from their home country Italy, Milan to China, Korea and is also no stranger to many female Hong Kong celebrities. What I love about this brand is their unique one of a kind pieces, in fact for Singapore, they’re only bringing in each design with a few varying sizes. Talk about exclusivity! Have I mentioned that MARYLING uses the same lace and tweed fabrics that produces Chanel pieces? So you’ll find very fine fabrics including 100% silk that feels soft and great on the skin. You’ll find their temporary pop up store at Takashimaya Level 3, Women Department, before they launch their flagship store officially in Singapore.

Lunar New Year Outfits_0006 Lunar New Year Outfits_0007 Lunar New Year Outfits_0005C/MEO Begin Again Dress, available here. Paired with Free People Strappy Back Bra, similar here.
Lunar New Year Outfits_0000 Lunar New Year Outfits_0001 Otw for Casio’s recent Exilim TR70 media launch in Maryling’s asymmetrical printed silk dress. Lunar New Year Outfits_0002I simply love the edgy asymmetrical design and modern, vibrant print and colours!
Lunar New Year Outfits_0009 Lunar New Year Outfits_0008Also donned this outfit for a corporate shoot for work! You can find a similar dress on Maryling’s e-store here.

Thank you Revolve & Maryling for dressing me for the recent events!

Has any brands and new designs caught your eye, if so, share them with me via email or in the comments below!

Wishing you and your loved ones a very blessed and prosperous Lunar New Year in advance!
