We all are pretty familiar with new year resolutions, usually we come up with a list, get enthusiastic about them for awhile and then ditch them before even half the year is gone. What started out as a new year resolution, which was to go on a spiritual journey of emotional and mental healing has craved a path of calm, happiness and gratitude. All the crap I had faced and endured in 2016 was for a reason and essential to my own spiritual and mental growth this year. The results I have been receiving has been amazing! Relationships have been healed, lots of blessings have come my way and I feel like a burden has been lifted from my shoulders.
Looking back, I had dabbled a little with crystals in early Feb, tried my hand at manifestation and read up on the law of attraction in May. I am not sure when I started doing moon rituals but I had started out doing full moons. Tonight at 2.30am, it would be a new moon, but before I dive into details about the new moon ritual, first let me share a little about moon rituals.
So you guys probably know that I love flowers and the works, that I had even gone for floral arrangement classes before. And that my equally crazy over flowers girlfriend likes to send me bouquets. In fact, just last month I’d received a sunflower bouquet and I reciprocated with her favourite blooms which featured the cotton flower. I also had rainbow baby breath bouquet sent to surprise another girlfriend too. So I have been studying and practising new beliefs lately and I strongly believe that it was because I started giving back that is why I am receiving more as well. So that’s why I was elated when I was offered a bouquet from Floral Garage. It felt like the Universe’s way of saying, here are some more flowers for you.
Most of you have probably heard of them even though they are just 2 years old. Floral Garage is a Floral and Gifts company that offers lovely and beautiful hand bouquets or even flower arrangements in a vase, box and baskets, on top of party supplies too, making it your one-stop gift shop.

Been quite busy with personal projects of late so I have not been really blogging. And I really need to get back on track with that job hunting, I can feel myself sinking into my comfort zone. I need to get creative, go out and do my thing or simply do something besides shopping :X
So let’s just do a quick summary on what I have been up to. First of, I had Brazilian Gold Keratin treatment done. I had a trim but this hairstylist noob ruined my hair, she practically thinned my hair by 50%, leaving it with too many layers and super frizzy. So I had to tame it but I could not see myself splurging $300 on a hair treatment. Which is why a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do and that was to head down to Fave (old Groupon) to grab a coupon for Keratin treatment. My girlfriend actually shared this with me and I decided to give it a try. I know there are a couple of Keratin treatments on Fave, the one which I had selected was Luxe X M at Katong 112.
It is summer and time for pool parties and water sports fun but before you even head outdoors. Make sure that you have the right sunscreen for your skin. Did you know that even if you are just be staying indoors at work or in the shopping malls. You should also remember to put on your sunscreen diligently as even though UVB is blocked by the glass windows but UVA can still reach you through the indoor lighting.
So what should we look out while shopping for a suitable sunscreen?
Had my first IPL experience over at Japan IPL after I bought a coupon off Fave, where they had 100 shots for just S$65 (I paid S$50 after using a promo code). So Japan IPL has several branches islandwide and the great thing about them is that you do not need to book an appointment. Just head down to your desired branch and get your IPL done.
The areas which I decided to try out IPL on were my upper lips and underarms. I had gone down with the intention of just utilising the shots for my upper lips because I was sick of having a shadow above my lips. But I was told that I had to utilise a minimum of 20 shots for the first round as they were giving these 20 shots for free to new customers. Upper lips requires just 10 shots so I decided to just get my underarms done too.

Sexual empowerment is about understanding, embracing and owning your sexuality, your body and your sexual needs. I am sure having sex is a great way to do so but there are other ways to explore your body and sexuality too. This is where sex toys come into the picture. Smile Makers supports sexual empowerment by offering high quality products that are feminine, friendly and fun.
If you have been feeling sluggish in the morning and stayed lethargic the whole day, found yourself falling sick more often, noticed a change in the way your breath smells and is spotting dull complexion, then it might mean that it is time for a gut cleanse! Imbalanced gut health can affect not only your intestines but also your overall health and mood.
I have heard horror stories about how sex life after kids is almost non-existent especially when you have more than one. And if you are getting your sexy fix weekly, then you are considered one of the lucky ones because there are some couples who seem to manage by with monthly sex or even quarterly sex. While I understand that some couples are both fine with having lesser sex, it can be frustrating if there is a mismatch in libido.
Well, things do not have to be this way, as I believe that sex is a healthy and natural part of marriage. Sex isn’t just about getting physical but it is also about being intimate and connecting with your spouse.
Besides rushing through five minutes quickies while the children are watching their favourite cartoon on TV, why not make an effort to rekindle that romance by planning a trip sans the kids. Even just a simple staycation would be a good break from the children. Continue reading →
