Look Book | Fur & Fall

Fall has always been my favourite season. Unfortunately, in Singapore, you can’t feel it. However, that’s not stopping me from styling in Fall looks. In this look, I play with the fur coat that has been lounging in my wardrobe for the longest time. This is still pretty wearable in Singapore IF you are staying in air-conditional place.
The turtle neck top is actually pretty thin in terms of material so pairing it with short still keeps you relatively cool. The fur coat is obviously the one that’s gonna keep you warm in cold temperate. Plus, it’s a vest fur coat so its still not too hot compare to those with sleeves. If you have to head out of the mall, just take off the coat, no hassle there.

Kohepets for your pets

Sponsored

Pet food, people who have pet like me knows that we are often out looking for good deals for our lovely pet. In my case, I often travel a bit further just to get my Sofie’s food and treats at a more affordable price. The only problem with that is I’ve to carry it all the way back home and to be honest, it’s really TIRING. Then again there are options like free shipping from other sites, which another problem arises, I’ve to buy at least S$100 worth of products. 

So image how delighted I am to learn that Kohepets does Free Shipping over S$60 and delivered within 2 days, talk about efficiency. That’s also a price point that I can hit as I don’t buy a lot of things. Now, I can wait in the comfort of my own house and with a few click, I can get my items delivered to my doorstep in a few days. They do regular promotion on food, treats & etc so you can get pretty good deals out of it.
Most physical stores give free sample when you ask. Although Kohepets is online base, they do have a section of free sample that you can pick from with any purchase. They carry more than 5000 range of products including premium brands such as Wellness, K9 Natural, Merrick, Honest Kitchen & etc. If you are into new products, they are also one of the first stores to carry them.

As for their Facebook and Instagram page, they have occasional contests so you might want to follow them as well!

One important point I wanted to share with you is the fact that they have a Donation section where instead of giving money, you can buy food (at 38% off) that are donated and delivered directly to Animal Lovers League or Uncle Khoe’s K9 shelters. Isn’t that such a lovely way to help out other animals?!

Those things above are what I’ve picked for my dog, Sofie. (hehe a little cameo of her too)
I have been feeding her Wellness’s completes puppy dry food. She enjoys her JerHigh sticks for treats. Since she is 6 months now, the period where she is still into chewing so I’m glad that she loves the SmartBones Rawhide-free Chicken chew in which she literally devoted it.

I’m definitely gonna continue getting Sofie’s stuff through Kohepets in the future so I don’t have to travel which really save me alot of traveling $$$. Thank you Kohepets on behalf of Sofie for all the yummy food!

Hugs,
Cassandra

Watsons On Trend | Featured Products

Sponsored
Watsons is a drug store in Singapore that carries beauty, skin/body/hair care as well as medical needs. They even have their own brand of beauty products. In this post, as you will see there is quite a range of products featured here. Let’s jump right into it!
 
Body & Hair
 
Watsons Essence Bath 975ml – This big bottle that will definitely last you quite a while. It contains natural extract as well as coconut oil so it doesn’t dry out your skin. It leans towards a more herbal smell rather than floral though.
Syoss Silicon Free Shampoo 750ml – This is a new brand of shampoo in Watsons that’s suitable for dry, fizzy and fragile hair. If you are conscious about having silicon free products in your shampoo, you can consider trying this out. It actually smells really nice!
 
Nivea Skin Delight Body Lotion 400ml – Nivea is no stranger to most people as it’s a brand that has been around for a really long time. Use this after bath to keep your skin moisturise!
DOVE Pure Care Dry Oil Treatment 100ml – Need some deep nourishing treatment then you can opt for DOVE Pure Care Dry Oil. I used this before drying my hair to act as a protective layer from the heat and it smells good too!
Face
 
Bausch + Lomb Renu Colour Contact Lens Solution 355ml – I’ve always been a user of this brand Multi-purpose Solution so it’s interesting how they have branch out to making solution specifically for colour contacts. So the different between this vs the usual ones was this solution state that it increases wearing comfort, gentle and pH- balanced, strengthens lens wettability as well as contain Poloxamine. I’m just guessing that if you have colour contacts and wants it in tip top condition then maybe go for this instead of the one for the usual contacts lens. I however have no problem with using either.
Gillette Fusion Proshield Flexball – The newest addition to the Gillette Fusion family. This power pack comes with two blades and a protector. The Flexball right in the middle act as a flexible wand to ensure better glide while shaving. My man approve!
ZA True White Cushion Compact 12g – One of the newest products in ZA where there aren’t many reviews on this products so I will share a little about this. SPF 30 PA++ and made in Korea, this cushion compact is good for people who wants to obtain fairer skin. Coverage wise, it’s about 3/5 which more suitable for an everyday natural look.
Essano Treat Your Skin Pack – In this travel size package, you get to try 5 products. It consists of a facial cleanser, moisturiser, night cream, body lotion and rosehip oil. Their products works fine on me. Facial moisturiser and night cream both are creamy base. They all smell like roses but I’m not a fan of the smell of the rosehip oil because it didn’t have sufficient rose smell for me which means the oil smell was heavier. Other than that I think the products are pretty alright and absorb quickly into skin.
DHC Suncut Q10 EX Gel 80g – I personally never try this brand before and I definitely enjoy using this. This sun block of SPF50+ PA++++ is very light-weight and blends on easily on skin without leaving my face looking like a ghost because of its gel texture so I’m satisfied with the product.

SVR Sebiaclear Mat+Pores Cream 40ml –  Another brand that’s new to me and this is a pore mattifier which can be used before makeup and after skin care. It apparently gentle, has an AHA-free peeling effect, refines the skin texture and regulates excess sebum.


Oral

Eu Yan Sang Slender Gold Slimming Essence 14 x 15g – The benefits of this products is that it promises 6% reduction in BMI, 14X stronger than caffeine in blocking sugar and average of 1 to 8 kg weight reduction. Since it comes in sachet forms, it’s convenience to travel around with.

Blackmores Radiance Marine Q10 30 capsules – If you need collagen, CoQ10 and antioxidants, this covers your beauty from within. It all starts from within right!

Listerine Total Care Zero 250ml – I didn’t like using Listerine before because it’s very strong for me and for many. I believe this is why they decided to come out with one that doesn’t sting and taste sweet! Grape flavour is what I’m saying. Now I can use this without worrying about the pain!

There are way too many products and brands that you can check out in Watsons so I hope this post helps you in one way or another. Thanks for reading & enjoy shopping!

Look Book | The Boss In Me

11 | 11 | 16
Marks the day I officially join MyFatPocket family as a Guest Blogger. I’m filled with excitement and drive to produce even higher quality work and so for starter, I decided that it would be my Look Book that gets the first visual hits. Every time I read a magazine, I love how a graphic designer can make a page looks so enticing to read. That’s something I see in blogs too as I explore! People are getting more creative in the way they edit and I found myself browsing through their post, picture by picture.
My dear friend Christy does some pretty sweet visual so I’m super inspired too. (Go check her out )
After browsing through magazines and blogs, here’s what I can come up with and I’m still very much a beginner at this and hopefully will get better with time! I really am working hard on this so in the meantime, do let me know if you enjoy such visual too!
In this Look Book, the key is to bring out the inner boss. Since I want to ensure that it’s still looking chic, I pair it with a classy sling bag with gold details and the choker neck off-the-shoulder top certainly prevent me from looking too formal.

50 Shades of Grey Hair Edition

Advertorial

As promised, here I back to hit you up with another hair post and this time round I’m sharing with you the hair colour that I’ve received much compliment with. Ever since I had my hair permed where you can read here, I was saddened to wave goodbye to my dark grey hair and been longing to get it back. Finally, after a long wait, I head back for another hair colouring session and wahla, I back and better than before!
As you can see the above, the colour that I dye this time round was Matrix SOCOLOR 5.1. The first time round of colouring was before my permed and back then I had Matrix SOCOLOR 7.1 which is a much lighter tone compare to 5.1.
My main reason for going back to darker hair was because I can’t stand the dark roots that has been showing yet I wanted to retain some colour, hence, Nic my hair stylist introduce me to Matrix SOCOLOR 7.1 which I gladly took it and now am obsessed with.
This colour works in a way that if you have bleach hair, the part that’s bleach will appear the lighter tone of grey (left section) and darker for nonbleach hair (right section) hence you see two tones on both the sample hair.
For first timer, to have a more obvious result, I recommend try Matrix SOCOLOR 7.1. In these shots is where I’ve dyed my hair with Matrix SOCOLOR 5.1 and I personally have hair that “absorb” colour well base on Nic hence even though Matrix SOCOLOR 5.1 was supposedly darker, my hair turns out pretty well. If you have bleached hair or “absorb colour well” type of hair, feel free to go for it or consult Nic because he is friendly!
Lastly, I also did colour hair treatment after dyeing my hair because it’s a must! Here’s what Nic combine. Matrix Biolage Cera-Vital Repair Colourcare Treatment + MaxCare Moroccan Organics Argan Oil Pure Nourishing Hair Mask. With these complete, I leave the salon with beautiful soft hair!

If you want to get this hair colour, do contact Nic from Headlines Hairdressing at +65 62216866. Also, check with them if the Hair Dye Matrix SOCOLOR 7.1 is available if you intend to go lighter because the last time round, this colour it ran out hence I got my hair dye in Matrix SOCOLOR 5.1. Go check them out!

Look Book | Dentelle

This outfit is super sweet and girly hence I had to add in a cupcake bag to complete the look. An interesting part was I actually wore the back of the top in the front instead and let’s just say it fits and look better.
