Outfit x Le Grand Boutique & Bridal and Zwedding Design Event

Out and about at City Hall area shooting my outfit before making my way to  Le Grand Boutique & Bridal and Zwedding Design The Prelude Couture Runway 2015 event. During the event, Mr Chris Ling himself, a wedding photographer share with us slide of how many boutique would lie about the photographer portfolio through buying the wedding pictures from roadshow and online. He manage to show us how different company may use the same picture by adding their boutique name onto the photo which result in customer complaint of why the photographer could get the type of feel that they see in those sample photos. 
Next he show photos that’s shoot by himself and it take certain skill for the photographer to shoot a wedding photo with feel to it while ensuring that the bride is looking good through posture and pose. He also mention that many times couple would argue during selection of wedding boutique because of a few factor such as wedding gown, photographer and the main contributing factor, the total cost. To him working together with Zwedding is like giving a solution to couple who wants the best but at the right price because we all know how expensive wedding gown to photoshoot can be. Hence if you are planning on getting marriage, do check out Le Grand Boutique & Bridal. Scroll down to view some of their bridal gown from The Prelude collection.

Teenage Magazine is my friend

Hey lovely,
I know the title might seem a little funny and out of my usual fashion and beauty post. As some of you might have know by now, I’m part of Teenage Gorgeous You Social Challenge 2015. I’m thankful to be part of it as I meet many new friends aka the contestant. Most importantly Teenage Magazine was like a friend to me during in my Secondary School days. Back then I was a pretty broke student so buying magazine was not up in my head but nevertheless I’ve always enjoyed reading Teenage Magazine whenever I got the chance to so I found myself heading to the National Library to try and borrow the latest copy of Teenage Magazine. Hence it was part of my teenage years memories. Honestly, I haven got to read it in a while since Secondary School so it’s really nice to get my hands on it once again.
If you are avid reader of Teenage Magazine you would definitely spot the different comparing the current September issue and those in the past. The first different is the texture of the cover page being matte as well as the quality of the paper in each page is better. Better as in not just the paper quality but the content as well.
Now, new section is clearly stated and as you flip through you will find that the content is very organise. It’s kind of like investing for a better blog structure page if that make sense, only different is you still get to pay the same amount 20 years ago but with better content.

I enjoying reading through celebrity gossip, fashion mix & match as well as Astroscoop, but the one that stand out most to me which I never fail to flip to was none other than “Dear Kelly”. I would read the story of trouble teens and feeling thankful that I didn’t make the same mistake as they did. I enjoy how “Dear Kelly” was always so patience and compassionate even though teens always ends up making the same mistake knowing that she warned them not to commit over and over again. Now thinking back I believe if I ever get to meet “Dear Kelly” in person, she would be proud of me because I do listen to her advised. *I secretly hope I can meet this amazing lady in person* I think as a teenager, we are at the stage where we tend to explore as well as rebel and often or not we didn’t know what’s the right thing to do or dare not go to our parents for advise so I can safely say “Dear Kelly” have help a lot of teenage out there who are struggling with school, relationship or emotion problems.
Now I’m looking forward to reading the next Teenage Magazine issue and see what’s new, what’s hot and what’s for Kelly to advise!
If you are a teenager reading this post, do give Teenage Magazine a try. I really do hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Good night~

Teenage Gorgeous Social Challenge | My 313 @Somerset Weekend List

Hey lovely,
since I’m given the task to come out with a weekend list, I decided to twist it a little and come out with this 313@somerset Student on a Budget List! Rather than just diving into different spot in 313@somerset, I decided to pick out some of the stores that I would recommend to go if you are a student on a budget. Window shopping is one of the most boring thing to me because what’s the point of shopping when you can’t afford to buy anything. I’ve been there, being a student on a tight budget and shopping in town was no fun so here’s some of my pick!

 Muji #B2-38/39/40/41 
Muji is like the all in one store, from household items to food and clothing. I secretly enjoy their DIY section where you get to purchase simple, Eco-friendly looking notebook and personalize it for yourselves or as a gift! Since Teacher’s Day is around the corner so why not surprise her with a sweet notebook of her very own!
 Typo #01-18
I love going to typo, getting cute stationery always help to give me a boost to study! Exam coming? Why not pamper yourselves with some cute notebook and pen as well as a schedule pad to keep you aware of what’s coming up! There is lots of gift ideas and decoration stuff for your room as well.
 Forever 21 #1st – 3rd floor
In this 3 levels storey Forever 21, you are bound to find something cute to wear. Whether is their affordable accessories items, makeup brush/ pouch or clothing pieces, all these will probably get you stuck in there for a while. *At least I did* After heading in I end up coming out with a necklace! *See what I mean?*
llaollao #B3-55
KOI Express #B3-51 | Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks #B3-50A
Sushi Express #B3-28/29
Lastly we can’t forget to feed ourselves, want a fulfilling meal,? Go for Sushi Express. Not that hungry and just want to grab a bite? Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks and KOI Express is a combo that never fail me. Dessert? Share llaollao Sanum with your friend! On one hand you get to split cost, on the other sharing is caring…
Need a place for selfie or outfit of the day? Head to Orchard Gateway bridge through 313 Somerset link, a spot where good lighting will definitely serve you well!!!
Do share with me what are some of your recommendation as I would love to know! Hope this list is helpful, in the mean time I shall go read my Teenage magazine!~

Lush

Recently I’ve got my hands on these few lovely products from my trip to Lush new pop up store located at Great World City #01-07A.
One of their best selling soap because it’s simple hard to resist it’s sweet caramel smell. Have you came across a smell so nice that you almost want to eat it? This is one of them! With the use of ingredients like Canadian honey, bee wax, sweet orange oil scent, soft honey water and aloe will benefit sore and sensitive skin. Want to smell like caramel or toffee then don’t skip this.

 UltraViolet
This Bath Bar allow you to break it in to smaller pieces for a few uses. A great alternative to use if you enjoy bubble bath because this helps to create lots of bubble and you get to enjoy the soap at the same time. Just remember to rinse it out before coming out of the shower, oh did I mention the water is purple in colour too which is so much fun!
I’m not sure about you but I am one of those people with bad hair days so dry shampoo always comes in handy for me. All you have to do is massage in sparingly in your scalp and through your hair. Corn flour and talc will absorb excess oil while the lemon, grapefruit and lime oil give your hair a fresh fragrance. I enjoy the smell a lot.
Leaving the best for the last here is one of the two products that I fell in love with. This is a shampoo bar! Yes you heard me right, it’s a shampoo bar that allows you to use 3 times longer than a 250ml shampoo, it’s travel friendly since you do not have to worry about leakage or limited amount of liquid. It foams more, better and faster than the usual shampoo so I haven stop using this since! 
With fragrant Ylang Ylang turns dull hair gleam once again, balancing the scalp and hair. This fragrant has been use by Aromatherapists to treat stress and depression too.
People with longer hair like me tend to spam a lot of shampoo and with this I don’t have to do so which means it’s friendly to my wallet too. Simply just wet your hair, start rubbing in and see it foam up! So much winning with this shampoo bar which is why I would definitely recommend you to get this the next time you happen to be in Lush!
Last but definitely not least, love a good facial scrub then Cupcake, one of Lush Fresh Face Mask is your new best friend! Once in a while I would give my face a good scrub to get rid of dead skin as well as achieving smooth skin. Since this scrub is pretty rough in texture, *which I prefer* I will only do this once a week or once every two week. This has to be kept in fridge as it’s a fresh mask which means when its time to whip it out, you get to enjoy a cooling massage on your skin. Apply this gently on skin since the texture of the scrub does not required you do apply much pressure. 
If you suffer from oily or spotty skin, this will be the mask you can opt for. With spearmint oil to cool, Rhassoul mud to deeply cleanse and vanilla absolute to calm redness, this is a savior for young faces. 
Fresh Face Mask is another recommended to get list because they have different once for different concern so you can click HERE to find out which will suit your concern.
In the mean time, I shall go slather on some cocoa concoction!
