Leather & Lace

Hi loves!

Do you love the leather & lace combination like I do? If the outfit seems similar, it’s because I wore this out to Affordable Art Fair 2015.

Sammydress leather jacket bag 001 Sammydress leather jacket bag 002

Super love this cute Crossbody Bag with chain from Sammydress, available here. I bought my white lace dress from Temt in Singapore. You can also shop from Sammydress’s collection of white lace dresses here. Alternatively, I also recommend this grey lace sweater mini dress. The pieces from Sammydress are super affordable with most pieces below $20, and even below $10. The quality and finishing may not be perfect but they definitely provide a great variety. Items ship from China and takes 1-2 weeks to arrive.

Thank you Sammydress for leather bag and grey lace sweater mini dress!

Your girlfriend will love Anna Sui’s Romantic & Holiday Snow Christmas Collection

Hi Loves!

A while back I shared about Anna Sui’s Autumn collection and share a preview of their new Romantica fragrance. Today I’m back to share with you more about the Romantica fragrance and their Christmas, limited edition Holiday Snow collection!!!

Anna Sui Romantica ReviewIf fairytales were flowers, they will smell like Anna Sui Romantica fragrance – charming, fresh & fabulous~ I love everything about the fragrance, the sweet mesmerizing floral fruit scent, to it’s feminine & girly intricately designed packaging with gold floral details.

Classified as a Sparkling Floral, it is at once joyous and sensuous, lively and exciting. The top note opens with a floaty feeling of Calabria Bergamot, Mandarin Essence, Sparkling Pomegranate, and Watery Quince. It is giddy, it is glorious, it is like falling in love all over again.

Soon to be followed by Rose de Mai, Osmanthus Absolute, Jasmine Petals, and Orange Blossom, the romance builds to a crescendo, awakening a deeper sensuality. Water Lily and Peony Blossom add a touch of whimsy and freshness to the heart.

And then it settles with White Ceylon Cedarwood, Sheer Amber, Indonesian Sandalwood, and Creamy Musk.

Anna Sui Romantica 30ml: $68
Anna Sui Romantica 50ml: $93
Anna Sui Romantica 75ml: $119

Anna Sui Holiday Snow Thaw Heart ReviewAnna Sui’s Holiday Snow Collection offers 2 options, Frozen Love & Thawed Heart ($88 per collection), pictured.
Each collection comes with:
• Rose Cheek Color N 6g
• Lip Stick M 3g
• Color Powder 2.3g
• Box(Size: W150mm × H58mm × D103mm/Material: Wood, artificial leather)

Anna Sui’s Holiday Snow Collection comes in a very precious and attractive packaging which definitely makes for a great Christmas gift for your girlfriend. Priced at $88, it’s also a value set with 3 beauty products and a solid wooden casing which is super pretty!

E Pure Membranous Jelly Mask Review

Hi Loves!

Are you a facial mask lover? If you are, I am sure you are familiar with mask sheets which are popular in Korea and Taiwan, as well as Clay masks which are popular in US. But, have you heard about Jelly Mask? Well, I sure haven’t before I tried ePure Membranous Jelly Mask and I must say, it is a very special mask!
E Pure Membranous Jelly Mask Blogger ReviewePure Membranous Jelly Mask comes in a box of 3, with a spatula, $39.90 / box.

Screen Shot 2015-12-14 at 11.13.14 pm

Main ingredients include Alpha Arbutin, Seaweed Extract, Epure Natural Vanila Scent, Jojoba Leaf Extract, & Hyaluronic Acid – Triple Moist Complex (HA-TMC).

ePure mask boasts that after 25 minutes, it leaves the skin 60% more hydrated, 55% more refined and 52% brighter.

Screen Shot 2015-12-14 at 11.13.26 pm

Directions:
1. Apply jelly mask with the spatula, apply a thick layer 0.3-0.5cm.
2. Relax and leave on for 15-30 minutes.
3. Wash it off using warm water.
4. Mask can be apply to eyes area to lighten dark eyes circle.

Tips
For the first month of using éPure, use 3 times a week.
After the first month of using éPure, you can cut down on the frequency to once OR twice a week depending on the results that you are after.
Mask can be applied to eye area to lighten dark eye circles and problem area can apply thicker for better result.

My Review
I really enjoyed using the ePure jelly mask and can see why it has become quite the cult mask in Asia. Whilst the application requires more effort than a facial sheet mask, the experience is also correspondingly more refreshing. The jelly mask is translucent and clear from the sachet and after leaving it on for 30 minutes, it is as though the jelly absorbs all the oil and dirt from the pores that it becomes slightly cloudy when removed. The other remarkable quality of the mask is that it leaves the skin super refreshed, which can be accrued to the Hyaluaronic Acid which deeply hydrates the skin and leaving it supple for many hours.

PURCHASE NOW to enjoy the launching price of $49.90 (U.P.$59.90) for a pack of 5. Log on to www.epureskin.com.sg Or PM them on facebook.com/epureskinsg!

The Body Shop Christmas Party

Hi Loves!

Christmas is literally just round the corner and I’ll be blogging about all things Christmas related these few days! ^^ The Body Shop hosted the first Christmas media preview (that I’ve attended, that is) which I think is more appropriate to call it a party, it was so much fun! After learning about all the new Christmas products for sale and the charity work The Body Shop is taking part in this Christmas, we went around the venue making Christmas themed souvenirs, food & drinks. Just thinking about it now makes me want to organize a similar Christmas party with a few friends and have fun! Enough of my introduction, scroll on for photos and captions! ^^

The Body Shop Christmas 2015 Media Preview 001DJ Yasminne was host and glistening in a beautiful golden dress.
The Body Shop Christmas 2015 Media Preview 002We walked down this black infographic path while also learning about striking information about water scarcity in some places that WaterAid is reaching out to.

For over 650 million people across the world, access to safe water is not even possible and around 1,400 people die each day from diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation.

This Christmas, The Body Shop is partnering with international charity WaterAid to help transform lives through access to safe water. For every specially selected gift bought, WaterAid can provide a family in Ethiopia with one day of safe water.

DCS Nutriderm Ultra Nutrition Range

Hi Loves!

Are you on the look out for anti-aging skincare for sensitive skin? Well, then DCS Nutriderm Ultra Nutrition is what you’re looking for!

DCS Nutriderm Ultra Nutrition 001

From the brand that harnesses the volcanic power of Jeju, DCS helps women to embrace youthful and dewy skin with its anti-ageing range, NUTRIDERM. Keeping away fine lines with the powerful anti-ageing properties of the rare Korean ginseng berry, this NUTRIDERM range is gentle on the skin and kind on the wallet.

 The Korean ginseng berry can only be harvested once every four years over a seven-day period, giving rise to its rarity and value. Its powerful anti-ageing properties make the Korean ginseng berry a prized ingredient in Korean skincare. DCS NUTRIDERM offers premium ingredients at a modest price.

Other than the Korean ginseng berry, another key ingredient that gives skin its dewy nature is Jeju’s volcanic seawater. Just like all DCS product ranges, the anti-ageing NUTRIDERM range is also infused with the pure, skin-loving water from Jeju, which repairs and regenerates the skin.

On top of the Korean ginseng berry and Jeju’s volcanic seawater, NUTRIDERM products contain other nature-based ingredients. Hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin, nature-based ingredients provide your skin with the care it needs without stripping the skin’s natural moisture.

Youthful, glowing skin has to be maintained and preserved over time – one must start incorporating anti-ageing products as soon as we can, as the skin starts to age naturally by the mid-twenties. 

If you wish to achieve a glowing, youthful appearance, NUTRIDERM presents four products to incorporate into your daily regime: Ultra Nutrition Toner ($33.50), Ultra Nutrition Ampoule ($53) , Ultra Nutrition Day Cream ($41), and Ultra Nutrition Night Cream ($41).

DCS Nutriderm Ultra Nutrition 002 DCS Nutriderm Ultra Nutrition 003 DCS Nutriderm Ultra Nutrition 004

My Review

Having tried DCS Nutriderm Ultra Nutrition range, I can attest that this range is suitable for sensitive skin, keeping the skin hydrated. Whilst the name sounds intimidating as “Ultra Nutrition” sounds like it is too rich for skin in the 20’s age bracket, DCS Nutriderm Ultra Nutrition range and products are suitable for younger skin too. One of the key ingredient in the range is Korean Ginseng Berry for its anti-aging properties, so there is a discernible Ginseng scent in the range. I expect that this range will be more popular with older women, or women who loves a luxurious herbal ginseng scent. If you’re on the lookout for anti-aging skincare for sensitive skin, I would recommend DCS Nutriderm Ultra Nutrition range.

 DCS Nutriderm Ultra Nutrition range is now available at selected Watsons stores.

Thank you DCS Singapore & Media Flair PR for sending the range over for review.

MY REVIEW
I have completed the entire bottle and while it is hard to discern if my skin has gotten lighter and more hydrated because my skin is not very dark and dry to begin with, what I do like is that Ceramiracle has helped to strengthen my skin and nails, my nails are usually brittle but it has become strong and does not chip. The supplement comes in a flavourless capsule form and is easy to digest. If you are looking for a skincare supplement for skin lightening and hydration, I recommend that you give Ceramiracle a try!

 

CERAMIRACLE Ceramides Skin Supplement is available islandwide at Guardian pharmacies. It retails at S$89.00/bottle ($82 on Guardian website, at the point of writing this article) of 30 capsules. You can also purchase directly from their website here.

Thank you Ceramiracle & Access Comm for the supplement for review.

Cathay Motion Pictures Award 2015 Award Ceremony

Hi Loves~

Back in July, I was invited to attend Cathay Motion Pictures Award 2015 private screening and award ceremony and it was a pleasure to watch the screening of all the 15 finalists’ works.

Cathay Motion Picture Awards is an annual short film competition created to fulfil Cathay Organisation’s commitment towards the development of Singapore’s film industry. Utilising its assets in cinema exhibition as the platform for aspiring filmmakers to showcase their talent, Cathay pioneers the path as the first and only movie exhibitor in Singapore to organise a short film competition. The winners have very attractive prizes. For results and videos, visit CMPA website here.

Screen Shot 2015-12-11 at 1.45.28 am Screen Shot 2015-12-11 at 1.45.36 amIt’s a tough job being the judges because a lot of the finalists are really good. My favourite short film was Zoe (super cool effects, btw), which unfortunately didn’t win the top 4 prizes. :/ All these contestants are crazy resourceful and talented, because they only had 2 days to script, produce & film and submit a video after the theme is released, so some of the directors double up as actor/actress – awesome or what right?!

Thank you Cathay Singapore for having me at the awards ceremony!

Ending of the post with a few shots with the lovely red telephone booths at Plaza Singapura… Thanks to Kenny of Kennybite Productions for these shots.

Purple Hair @ Chez Vous

Hi Loves!

Well, a few months back I sported purple hair, just in case you missed it on my IG. I did it for Chez Vous’ look book – for a detailed explanation of how to achieve the look, check it out here! For all 20 look, see here.

What I learnt about sporting purple hair:
1. It required bleaching my hair 3x to get a blondish colour before dye-ing purple. It lasts for about 3 weeks before it all fades, leaving just a tad purple at the base.
2. A lot of people will come up to you and say “Wow, you’re so brave!” which I later figured out it’s a nicer way of saying, “Wow, that’s crazy!”. Yes, really. That said, it was a real conversation starter. People I’m not really close to at work/office will start conversations with my hair colour “Oh, it has faded? That fast?” “How do you maintain this!”.
3. Speaking of maintenance. Let’s just say that crazy coloured hair that requires bleaching your hair 3x is not for the faint hearted or the lazy (which I am, but for my hair… I was rather diligent..). I won’t bore you with the details, but if you are keen, maybe I will share another post of how diligent I was in hair maintenance, post purple hair. Honestly I won’t dare repeat such a feat without the trusted hair directors at Chez Vous. Leave the bleach on too long or too near your scalp and you might get burned. It will damage your hair, that’s for sure, but it’s how you lessen the damage during the colour and how you take care with post hair colour treatments, to give your hair some semblance of life…
4. Once in my life is enough. I don’t regret having my hair in a pretty purple, YOLO, guys. Gotta try it at least once! And if not now, then when? I don’t want to be 30, married with kids and sporting purple hair. Not judging those that do, just not something I’d do when I’m 30… I think.

Wow, didn’t know there was so much I had to share about my purple hair colour journey!

Some snaps from when I had purple hair!:

Crazy Purple Hair Chez Vous Blogger Review 004 Yes that’s me, getting very amused seeing myself with fantasy like purple hair! Crazy Purple Hair Chez Vous Blogger Review 005Like is this for real? Is that my real hair? YES. FURREAL.

Went back for a treatment because Purple hair requires it. Rather, bleached hair requires maintenance, don’t say I didn’t warn ya!

American Eagle Outfitters Now in Singapore Vivo City

Hi Loves!

A while back I had the pleasure to attend the opening launch of American Eagle Outfitters (VivoCity, #B1-06/07). To say I love the brand is quite an understatement – those casual laid back pieces are sooo comfortable – from cut off shorts, skinny jeans to flannel shirts (softest ones I’ve tried, guys). The opening launch was a blast – there was a table hockey, beers & bites in stores, local celebrities and cute models in attendance. Check out some snaps from that day!American Eagle Outfitter AEO Vivo City Opening 001Can’t go wrong with AEO jeans for a casual yet chic attire.
