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! 🙂
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 here. Thanks 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
