LUSH fans rejoice because there’s a new outlet at Vivocity B1-04. Other than their usual array of natural, handmade and organic products, be sure to check out their brand new fragrances. We are really excited because Singapore is the first in Asia to launch the gorilla perfumes.
After trying out every single fragrance, I eventually decided on Amelie Mae & Sun. Amelie Mae has a saccharine sweet fruity and candy-like scent while Sun is refreshing with hints of a citrus note.
Backpacks are a must-have for me when it comes to having to carry lots of stuff or when you are going out with your children and you really need to be as hands-free as possible. So I was searching for women’s backpack recommendation and the rest is history. Needless to say, I was thrilled to receive my Gaston Luga Clässic backpack in black, all the way from Stockholm. Please check out my unboxing video on Instagram!
So I’m really excited to share that I’ve gotten a new hair sponsor: Agpujeong, which also happened to the salon which I had my hair dye job and cut done previously in Nov last year after returning from a holiday in Seoul.
This round, my stylist was Korean senior stylist, Mr Sean. He felt that my hair was too “big” aka “pong”. Well, I have really thick hair and as mentioned, my hair was previously ruined at another salon where they over-layered my hair and so it got really big and frizzy. So he was going to help me thin it without adding on to the layers.
Not sure where to bring the kids to this school holiday? Check out the retelling of a timeless classic, The Nutcracker which is produced and presented by Gateway Entertainment and P’Art 1 Design. The Nutcracker infuse spectacular magic, special effects, video animation, and costumes that will capture the imagination and bring this wonderful tale to life. This is a first time I was seeing dance, lasers and magic tricks being combined into one exciting performance.
This magical, theatrical production, directed by Fan Dong Kai, will incorporate world-class illusions performed by award-winning illusionists and father-daughter duo Lawrence and Priscilla Khong. This is the first time the magic duo is staging a performance that has no narration or dialogue, and will rely solely on the art of magic, dance and state-of-the-art technology to tell the story. It will also combine classical music arranged in a modern style by renowned music director Kenn C. The retelling of the old Christmas classic will be the largest scale performance to be held at Gateway Theatre to date with an international dance troupe of 14 dancers and over 50 backstage production crew. The Nutcracker promises to take you on a magical adventure, that will dazzle your senses and touch your heart along the way.
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.
