Premium DIY Terrarium Kit From Floral Garage

 

With Christmas around the corner, the hunt for meaningful presents begin. When it comes to looking for a gift that is less than conventional, the Premium DIY Terrarium Kit from Floral Garage definitely tops my list. You could give it as it is but personally, I feel that it would be more thoughtful if you did up the terrariums yourself before presenting it to your loved one.

My Floral Garage Bouquet!

 

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.

Pretty Woman

In the past, undergoing the knife to look better was something kept under wraps and not to be talked about. However, as aesthetic procedures and plastic surgery became as common as taking a stroll in the park. People have started to be more open about having undergone such works. Some even taking it to the extends of sharing it online via social media websites.

And with the latest K-wave that swept Asia, beauty has once again been redefined. Everyone is dying to look, appear or even pass off as a Korean. All thanks to K-pop singers and groups such as Girls Generations and Missy A sporting fresh-faced, wide-eyed ladies with almost perfect-looking features.


Honestly, I don’t believe that their good looks can be attributed to just purely makeup. So there are rumors about plastic surgery. Well, with Korea being one of the top countries to go to for plastic surgery. Surely that is no big secret, right?

I mean, if you werent naturally blessed with good looks. Then there’s no harm forking out some money and having that fixed. Who won’t want to look like Kim Ah-Jung?

How bout Angelababy?

Or Nickhun for the guys?

So if you hate your droopy eyes or flat nose THAT much, then why not do something about? If you think that it would increase your self esteem and confidence, then why not? While I am probably gonna stick to just maybe minor, non-invasive aesthetic treatments such as botox and fillers, should I ever require them. I do not see anything wrong with undergoing plastic surgery or aesthetic procedures.

Personally, I think that life is too short, so just go ahead and do whatever that makes you happy. If I had the courage and money, I would love to pop by any famous surgeon’s clinic and get my face sharpened. I’m not sure how they are going to do it. Lengthen my face shape by adding chin fillers? Or inject botox into my square jaws. Perhaps, my face is too fat, I’ll probably need both procedures? Heh…

Speaking of which, I’ve tried jaw reduction with botox before. You can read all about my experience here. It was quick and relatively painless, my only grouse is the hefty price tag.

Also, aesthetic procedures are not just limited to botox and fillers. There’s a range of other treatments which are said to promote youthful looking skin through the use of lasers and other technology. Amazing, isn’t it?

Well, if you are curious and itching to find out more. Then you should really head down over to www.AestheticsHub.com , specially brought to you by MyFatPocket, is a new portal where consumers can gain knowledge and be empowered to make informed decisions about how to look and feel better.

It’s the first and only dedicated site in Singapore where aesthetic doctors, clinics and consumers can come together to foster a well-informed community on all aspects of aesthetics.

What you didn’t know about Botox at Aesthetics Hub

Did you know…

that Botox can Treat Acne Breakouts, Eliminate Large Pores, Reduce Sebum Production?

A plastic surgeon in Chicago injects directly into the skin to eliminate large pores, oil production and acne breakouts. He said that Botox prevents the production of the sebum, which in turn starves the bacteria that causes pimples.

Botox May Prove to Be Surprising Ally Against Depression

Botox is a wrinkle reducer. A study confirms that facial muscles do not simply broadcast people’s emotions, but are important for identifying and experiencing emotions which, in turn, interrupts the development and maintenance of negative emotions.

Did you know…
Sweaty Women Use Botox To Smell Good

The bad odour that accompanies sweating also puts a question mark on personal hygiene. Botox selectively blocks the activation of sweat glands and hence no sweat is released.

Did you know…

  you can make your Botox Lasts Longer by Taking Zytase before the Injections?

A Houston doctor said that since Botox is zinc dependent – they need zinc to work, he wondered what would happen if he “gave people zinc before their Botox injections. So, he combined a high dose of zinc with a phytase enzyme and Zytase was born. The drug is taken four days before and on the day of the Botox injection. The Botox’s effects last longer – meaning fewer shots and less money spent!

Did you know…

 you can inject Botox in your Feet so you can wear super high heels without feeling the pain?

A self-confessed shoeaholic has paid more than £300 to have a “Loub job” — fillers and Botox injected into her feet — so she can wear her favourite designer Louboutin stilettos without feeling any pain.

Do you know… how I know this?

Staying Slim & Sexy with BottomSlim

I’m not sure about you but I’m feeling guilty from all the chinese new year feasting. And I’ll let you in on a secret, I still have 3 bottles of pineapple tarts just waiting to be devoured. So it isn’t a surprise that I’m developing a flabbier tummy. I would joke with the hubby that I have a “beer belly” now. It’s an inside joke 😉

If you notice your love handles getting more obvious or you are growing ones when you never had this issue before all thanks to the Chinese New Year feasting. Perhaps, you just feel unattractive and depressed whenever you catch sight of your reflection in the mirror. Maybe you sit too much in the office and notice that your waist, butt and thighs are getting chunky. Well, fret not! I am excited to share with you about BottomSlim; the pioneer in lower body slimming.

This is especially so for those of you who totally dread working out (like me) or just don’t have the time to do anything about your figure. As we all know, even with exercise, some areas are just too difficult to reduce. You have to be really committed and how many of us just simply give up along the way. So why not just relax at BottomSlim and let the treatments do their wonders.

Located conveniently in the heart of Orchard road at Ngee Ann City, that’s where you can find BottomSlim’s flagship branch at level 5. It boosts a relaxing ambience with it’s minimalism decor and cosy seating area.

There’s even a kids play area where your children can hang out with Daddy while you are having your treatments done. Really thoughtful of them.

I had a consultation done prior to the treatment. This is to determine the areas of concern I had and which treatments would be suitable to tackle these issues. My consultant was friendly and pleasant, explaining everything in detail to me as well as answering all of the queries I had.


As I had just given birth recently last Oct, my main concerns would be my tummy. Because of the pregnancy, my tummy has lost most of its firmness. My hips had also widened and my shorts were getting tighter. Not to mention with all the eating binge due to the festive season, I was starting to worry about not being able to fit my pre-pregnancy bottoms.

My treatments were divided into 3 different ones. The first was for breaking down the fats, a signature treatment – The Tummy, Hips & Thighs Trimmer that is highly popular with all of their customers. Before we begin, my therapist snapped a BEFORE photo. And once the treatment was done, she took another one for comparison. Immediate results could be seen, I noticed my tummy looking slimmer and it felt firmer. Sorry no photos cause I’m still very shy and conscious of my tummy (linea nigra and all). But you can check out below…

That’s an image of one of their clients who managed to achieve a slimmer waistline through their treatments. Amazing, right? Of course, to achieve such desirable results, more than one treatment would be required.

The next treatment I received was a detox session and this was followed by a mask with infra-ray to enable the nutrients of this mask to penetrate in deeper. The mask had a cool, minty sensation which I like.

All the treatments at BottomSlim aim to give you a slimmer and slender lower body through the breaking down of fats, detox, reducing cellulite, re-sculpting and firming. Don’t we all wish we had a figure like their spokesperson, Faraliza who was Miss Singapore 2008? She is one of their customers too and she lost 20kg in mere 4 months.

Having a slim figure like her would give one confidence, the ability to fit all types of clothing especially those tagged free size and at the same time look good in shorts, mini skirts and most importantly the sexy bikini!

Did I also mention that BottomSlim won the Cozycot award for best post-natal slimming? So mummies, you know where to go to now.

All in all, I enjoyed my session at BottomSlim. Their consultants are friendly, knowledgeable and not pushy at all. After going through pages of Before & After images of their customers, I’m very tempted to go for further treatments to regain my pre-pregnancy figure.

Do you wanna look like Angelina Jolie?

This blog entry was inspired by Michelle Phan’s post in Facebook. She’s a makeup guru & you can follow her on Facebook HERE. She has posted a makeup tutorial on how to look like Angelina Jolie in The Tourist. I’m always fascinated by her makeup tutorials especially since I’m a klutz with makeup. And I simple adore Angelina because she is just so beautiful.

I’ve not watched the movie but it has 2 of my favorite artistes inside!! Anyway, I’ve always thought such dark, smokey eye makeup would be suitable for deep set Caucasian eyes only. But these Asian-looking makeup gurus have proved me so wrong.

Check out Tamang Phan’s Makeup Tutorial to replicate Angelina Jolie’s look. I was shocked when I clicked on the link because she resembled Angelina so much…

Check it out… This is the real deal. Gorgeous Angelina herself:

And this is Phan after she’s done with the makeover:

OMGFBBQ right!??! And so you think, perhaps this Phan lady is a caucasian. Cuz using the in-group and out-group sociology theory. We asians tend to see all caucasians are similar-looking and vice versa. But no, she is ASIAN!!!

This is her before she puts on the makeup:

I’m just so simple amazed. Once again, if you wanna attempt to be an Angelina Jolie lookalike. Do check out her makeup tutorial!
