Watsons Girl’s Day Out 2015

Sponsored

We spent almost 3 hours there and there wasn’t enough time to cover the entire segment as some of the booths were already closing then. But but, it was a Girl’s Day Out indeed! It was held at Serangoon NEX (which was really really really far for me but because it is Watsons, I have to go over no matter what!!), and I lugged home more than 6kg worth of goods! Haha.

By the way, Happy 27th Birthday Watsons!!!

 

Westies unite! We shared a cab home that evening.

 

We were so pampered from head to toes as we were introduced to the latest health and beauty brands be it cosmetics, hair, skincare, inner beauty supplements, health, and a lot of new brands (some can be quite shocking because you will never expect to find it in Watsons). Hahaha. As there were simply way too many many brands to cover (you guys know how big Watsons is right?!), I will only be touching on a few.

I think the girl’s favourite was the L’oreal  Revitalift Magic Blur booth because we can each score a $50 Zalora Gift Card there by posting a selfie with  Magic Blur on our Instagram.

 

It is retailing at $41.90 for a 50ml bottle. It can instantly blurs the look of pores, lines and imperfections. And with prolong use of up to 4 weeks, it is claimed to make your skin feels firmer and lines are reduced for younger looking skin.

Exture: mousse-cream and silky smooth.

 

And for their already famous extraordinary oil, my favourite was their latest range – Fine to Normal Hair SPRAYYYY. Yup, it works like a mist and is light weight.

 

 

I was also very impressed by Cetaphil Cleansing Cloth. And extra set was also delivered to me so I will be doing a review on it separately. I will explain how this saved me after my wisdom tooth surgery!!

 

The were also other new brands like Divinia and more.

I like it’s clean looking packaging and pocket friendly prices. A bottle of Triple Hydration Lotion (200ml) and a Triple Hydration Essence (30ml) are only retailing at $17.90 EACH. I always thought Essence would cost at least $30-40.

 

Okay, then I was attracted to Kustie because of the flower petals. You can find the petals inside the bottle of bath gel. My favourite was the Cherry blossom and Chamomile.  This brand is only exclusively available in Watsons at $19.90/bottle.

 

ASIENCE Inner Rich (Gold) and Nature Smooth (Blue) Ranges  which are already available and retailing from $7.95 onwards.

I have always love how nice ASIENCE products smells like!

 

Kinohimitsu was also another very generous booth. Drinks were served together with their health drinks.

 

That was not all. We were given a box of Kinohimitsu EyeBright and JointPro360 each.  I consumed one sachet of EyeBright on the spot because the lady was saying “you don’t have to mix it with anything else”. The taste was like the childhood crackling candies. It is suitable for everyone because even Vegetarians can eat it safely. I thought it was a little too sweet but they assured me that there was no sugar added. Yay!

EyeBright is retailing at $59.90 ($55.90 introductory price)
JointPro360 at $69.90 ($65.90 introductory price).

 

And here come’s the toothpaste and mouthwash. Honestly, I am perfectly fine with any brands 🙂

 

 

 

 

Energeyes is retailing at $67.90/pair without prescription. This can help block out the harmful lights emitted by your gadgets like phones or iPad. About 50% of harmful blue light will be reduced. My dad is constantly on his iPad till he sleep every night so I thought of giving this to him the moment I received it.

 

Also, SILKYGIRL has hair dye now! Because of it’s current promotion, I bought an additional 2 boxes of dye for my mom. Each box of dye comes with a lipstick inside 🙂 Only $7.90/box.

 

Bioderma, as usual, need no further introduction. But they have a new item this time round – Bioderma Sensibio Lait Cleansing Milk which I thought was superb!! It is as light as milk but it does more than just gentle cleansing, removing the make up from face and eyes.

The people behind the booth were saying that it is ultra clean and you don’t have to double cleanse to remove all make up. I did a demo on my hand after the scribbled some lipstick on it and true enough, it works like magic! Already available in stores for $26.90 (250ml).

 

YUPINZHEN is also exclusively available in Watsons. I had a small bottle to bring back and I noticed the differences. It is filled with jelly-liked bird nest with little rock sugar unlike those big bottles you normally see. Price is a little steep though. 6 small bottles for $95. I guess that’s why it is filled with bird nest instead of the “water”.

 

For shampoo wise, I did not manage to cover everything as it was too late by then and the booths were all closing 🙁

Honeyce is a very very cute brand from Japan with high-quality and carefully selected natural ingredients. It is formulated with eight different types of honey sourced from different parts of the world: Manuka Honey, Raspberry Honey, Clover Honey, Rosemary Honey, Orange Honey, Lemon Honey, Acacia Honey and Blueberry Honey… and suddenly my hair sounds sweet instead of smelling sweet lol!

Each unique product retails at $19.90.

 

Hair Pro is an in-house brand by Watsons. It make use of the Heat Activated Technology combined with non-silicone formulae for healthier hair. The technology can activate ingredients to protect hair against heat damages like curling, blow drying and straightening.

They are also free from Parabens, Mineral Oils, UV Absorbers, Artificial Colorants and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.

Prices range from $15.90 to $17.90

 

Not forgetting, they have an e-store right now! If you think lugging him 3 bottles of shampoo along with other products are too heavy, head over to their e-store. Spend $80 and they will deliver it over for free!

New Balance Media Preview S/S’15

Sometimes the perks of being a blogger is that you get to work with your favourite brands and get first hand news. For me, I was totally overwhelmed to receive New Balance’s invitation to the Media Preview of their Spring/Summer 2015 collection!

 

 

Of course, my trustworthy partner, writer, best friend and boyfriend attended the vent with me!

 

 

The shoes will be launch slowly until June. We caught ourselves eyeing on a few pairs of shoes already. My favourite pair morel 996 in pastel purple will be launched in May and the chances of me getting it is almost 99%!!! Hehehe. I hope they still have my size when I go back for it!

 

 

The model comes in pastel pink, pastel mint and pastel purple. The three of them are equally pretty!

 

 

574 in Pink (Bottom Left) caught my attention too. 574 as compared to 996 has a wider width.

 

 

More and more colors! This is why I love New Balance. They have all the interesting designs and colors. Seems like it will always keep you in style!

 

 

 

Here is our pick from the 574 model. I like the olive green he picked too.

 

 

Look at the pastel purple again!!

 

 

Other than lifestyle shoes, their performance shoes are as stylish and comfortable as well.

 

 

Fresh Foam Zante (picture below) are already available in stores at $169. I have a pair of Fresh Foam and I must really praise how comfortable it is to wear it for jogging sessions. It accompanied me to Color Run 2014 too!

 

Fresh Foam Zante is a great pair of running shoe for your everyday performance for a smooth underfoot feel and a fast feeling transition through their stride.

 

It has a unique underfoot feel and at the same time, lightweight.

 

 

Fresh Foam Boracay is the ultimate for J because he like the combination of silver, black and lime green. The entire pair of shoe is extremely eye catching and stylish! You can already find it in stores at $169.

 

Fresh Foam has ultra soft ride, but Fresh Foam Boracay can increase the cushy feel to make the ride smoother.

 

 

I think New Balance 890v5 is as pretty! I like the combination of pink, white and silver. Purple/blue/lime green is also available. This model will be in stores from April 2015 at $179.

 

Fans of 890 series would be happy to this is an improved version of the award-winning 890v4. It remains an ideal choice for people who wants to run fast or feel fast in an extremely lightweight package, without sacrificing durability, cushioning, or support.

 

 

 

Do you also know that they have shoes made in UK and USA? They are more premium than the other models but trust me, you can’t go wrong with them!

 

The stitches are hand sew and I am really really in love with some of the designs but sadly, female sizes are not available yet 🙁

 

I love this pair of 997 the most!!

 

 

Look at all the leathers…

 

 

 

 

His favourite pair from the ENTIRE collection 🙂

 

 

I hope you are as excited as me for the shoes to be launch in stores.

 

Visit New Balance Experience Stores at *SCAPE, Bugis Junction, Suntec City Mall, Tampines Mall, Velocity at Novena Square and Kallang Wave Mall 🙂

 

Be sure to check them out again and again as different models have different launch dates!

Valentine’s Photoshoot with J

Because of blogging, I was given more opportunities and ways to spend my pre-Valentine’s with James.

We did a couple shoot with Lee Cooper apparels. They apparels are really comfy and stylish. I was quite amazed by how stretchable the jeans were. We could even roller blade and stretch in it! Airy and lightweight – What a bonus!

The pictures you see here are the more serious ones.

We had more pictures of us laughing like mad (the smiles were so huge that my mouth looked really big LOLOL), fooling around and all. The photos looked really natural. Love how Chee BP Photography managed to capture all the silly moments we had.

Lovely couple (HAHA), comfy apparels (Lee Cooper), talented photographer and the cute Phoebe made all these come true!

Fine stitches, quality clothes at good prices. We got ours at Orchard Gateway Shopping Centre #02-17A 🙂

I love this pair of mint green shoes so much that I got another color in coral.


I remember whining about not being different like coral on the left and mint on the right few months ago. Lol!

Still loving this denim jacket which is now finally mine 🙂

To everyone who made it possible, thank you. Valentine’s Day 2015, I love you!!

Original Source

When I was in UK few years ago, I stumbled across Original Source because of its happy colors and exotic combination – Chocolate and Mint, Shea Butter and Honey?

Yes yes, CHOCOLATE on a body wash???? MY GOD. Sounds so delicious~ Original Source is originated from UK and they are packed with natural stuffs. They are made with natural plant extracts and authentic fragrances found from aspects of nature. The products are tested on themselves and NOT animals because they are against animal testing too!!!! (BONUS POINT)

Anyway, look at the picture below, their happy colors would make you happy too!

They got every scent for everyone. From spearmint to lime to lemon and from ladies to the men. Some can be used for the hair and the body. Saves time when you are in a rush.

Among the many scents, my favorite is their Vanilla & Raspberry, Lavender & Tea Tree and Black Mint! The mint is so refreshing and cooling (I don’t care if it is for the men or ladies because I couldn’t resist the freshness)!

Vanilla & Raspberry smells like ice cream / yogurt!! What a nice way to wake me up when I take my showers in the morning.

Other than Shower (for the ladies and men), they have body scrub too! Mine is in Cranberry & Honey. Sounds yummy too no?! Some scrub can leave your skin dry but you will feel fresh after using Original Source’s scrub.

As mentioned, they are made of natural ingredients, so people with sensitive skin can use it too!

OVERALL, GREAT WAKE UP CALL!

They are available at Guardian, Watsons, Cold Storage and more.

2 gate crashes in a month

So… for the weddings..

2 consecutive weekends on gate crash is seriously no joke when you have to work during the weekdays.. I work from Tuesday to Saturday so I had to take off for the two gate crashes.

First crash: Close blogger friend Xinyi
Second crash: Best friend (almost like my sister from another family)

I had to wake up at 5.20am on the two Saturday to prepare because I live in the west and both of them live in the East/North East and I had to reach at 7am. It was….. super tiring!! There were moments where I had to zone out because I was too tired. Both crashes were equally fun!

Here is a little tip for the bride to make things easier for the sisters:
– Prepare breakfast for the sisters so that they save some time in the morning

Thank god there was food before the crash. It saved me 30 minutes!

As you know, the morning ceremony takes quite a while and the whole thing would only end around 1pm.

7am to 1pm = 6 hours.

And the brothers and sisters would have to report to the venue of the wedding dinner at around 5-6pm (this also meant that we would only get 4-5hours of rest time in between. And if you minus the traveling time, we are only left with 3 hours of rest).

TELL MEEEEE. How on earth did I survive? Actually I died. I was super super tired. 1 week has already past and I am still feeling exhausted from everything. I am also experiencing a minor breakout from the lack of sleep T_T

Although I kept complaining that I am tired, I must say that the time lost on sleep was quite well spent. When someone invites you to be part of their big day, you know you are just not that someone.

And for now….. enjoy the pictures taken on the 2 days 🙂

Shopping at Wisma Atria

Every year, be it Chinese New Year or Christmas, I would visit Orchard Road even more frequently than the normal days to soak myself into the festival mood as the entire stretch or road would be decorated with beautiful decorations and all. People also looked happier and chattier there.

This year, James and me decided to buy ourselves a similar backpack because I had enough of him and his ugly bags :X

My first thought was Porter International!!! Wisma Atria has one outlet there!! As you know, I just came back from Taiwan, and after seeing all the bags there, I got myself 4 items from the shop so I knew it was the right place to get us the backpacks.

On top of that, Wisma Atria is also having some contest right now where we will get a chance to fly to  a destination of our choice. So why not shop there for some presents with the hopes of flying to Paris – our dream country?!?!?!

When we entered the mall, we were greeted by the lovely scents of the candles from Yankee Candle as there was a little cottage at the atrium 🙂

We stopped by a little for a sniff before heading up to Porter International at Level 3 (for me) and James to Plinio Visona at Level 1!

The little accessories from Porter Internation like coin pouches, wallets and bracelets caught my attention too (even before checking out the bags)!

I got myself this from the MORI series Backpack. It was a love at first sight because I fell in love with the combination of Maroon and Gold. As for James…. I picked the Black and gold one for him!

I am pretty sure that he would love this bag because it has a contrast of colors and he love contrast. With that said, this bag is very spacious and looks versatile for almost any outfit.

There were really other designs that were pretty nice as well..

James did consider this but it wasn’t big enough to fit in a laptop. We thought that it would be very useful for trips though!

Hehehehe. I couldn’t resist. I got this as well 🙂

I liked shoulder bags so this tempted me a little too…

When I was shopping, James sneaked off to another shop to pick me a gift as well. He went to Plinio Visona located on Level 1 where they sell real leather bags. They have really good quality and trendy bags.

You guys know how much we love to cafe hop right? I love Paris Baguette because of their desserts! I heard that Omakase Burger is pretty yummy too. Shall give that a try when we are in town again!

This is only part of the story. If you wanna read the entire story, read it here: http://www.wismaonline.com/?ch=english_happening&pg=english_happenings_hot&ac=AC_81RBUSqI_20141219170946

PSSST: Wisma Atria is quite a nice place for you to do some christmas shopping! 🙂

Christmas Log Cake & Menu at MEDZS

Yes! J am back again! Maybeline’s partner in crime especially when it come to gourmet food tasting experiences. Likewise for this time around, we went back to MEDZS. However, this time it is not just for their usual authetic Mediterranean dishes but also their long-awaited Christmas menu since the ‘jingling’ festive is around the corner! Cant help but share the main highlight for this dinner first: the Log Cake! After seeing it, i think it truly deserves the award for the Prettiest log cake of the year:

MEDZS Rainbow Log Cake (1.2kg) @ an affordable price of $46.90. It doesn’t just look good, it tasted good as well . Imagine the fushion of various flavaoured cream (eg cream cheese, orange cream etc) between the layer of different coloured sponges. It’s no wonder it’s voted the BEST Rainbow cake by 8 days!

Not to put all the limelight on therainbow cake, there are other wonderful dishes in the christmas menu as well. The award for most inovative dish has to go to this one: the Oven Roasted Roulade with Provencal herbs and confit garlic.

Thoroughly enjoyed the taste of their Medzs recipe nuts filling at the centre of the meat layer. So much so M & I called for one more serving of it despite our filled-to-the-brim stomach end of this dinner.

Another pork dish worth mentioning: the tender and juicy Oven roasted Crispy pork knuckle in gourmet marinade with Bratwurst

Enough of the pork. How can christmas ever go without the most highly raved Turkey! Indeed, Medz also came up with their very own special turkey dish: the Mediterranean Spice infused Whole turkey with Foie Gras and chestnut stuffing! i think this is the MUST TRY out of the whole christmas menu or rather the epitome of christmas dish due to its very unique taste. This is espeically so when you have the inovative combination between the flavourful foie gras, crunchy sweet chestnut and moist turkey meat!

We had some wonderful desserts to end off our pre-christmas food tasting at MEDZ. Though less striking as compared to the rainbow cake, they do have their own array of visual and palatable pleasure.

One noteworthy dessert is The Black Beauty of MEDZ logcake.

Belgian Dark Callebaut Log Cake. Made with 100% Belgium dark chocolate for those dark choc fans like me! Comes in 1.2kg at afforable price of $43.90! Definitely more than enough and good for office sharing or christmas gathering!

Not forgetting their Chocolate Pralines which comes in boxes of 5. Perfect gifts for anyone who matters greatly to you just like M to me! Well, unfortunately she isnt a great fan of pralines. Therefore, i shall just save them for myself! >< while saving the holidays for her *literally* speaking of which we just came back from our first trip tog to Melaka!

Last but not least, we both agree that we could not just end the whole food tasting experience without our favourite snack at MEDZ which is their Truffle fries. It came in such a generous portion we had to share it with our other blogger friends who sat with us at the same table!

Its my first food tasting for MEDZ chrstimas menu but definitely not the last especially after the wonderful experience i had this time around. Look forward to be back for more soon! 🙂

Strongbow Cider

WOOHOOOO. My kind of alcohol is definitely not those hard liquor, beer or wine. My favorite has got to be cider.

I like cider because they are sweet and refreshing. I have my favorite flavors from different brands. I was recently introduced to Strongbow! after being more than 10 years in the market.

The world’s leading cider brand is launching three new flavors with a glossy new 330ml bottle packaging. I would usually pick berries over apple because some apple ciders can be dry and Strongbow specializes in apple ciders.

So I thought, why not give it a try? I gave all three flavors a try and my favorite was the Gold Apple. It also has the highest alcohol content of 5% among the other 3 flavors.

– Strongbow Gold Apple (Original)
– Strongbow Elderflower
– Strongbow Red Berries

It was a cosy evening that night where we got to lay down on the picnic mats and indulge in ciders and food from Prive at CHIJMES.

Aren’t we cute? 🙂

Presenting you from left the right – Red Berries, Elderflower and Gold Apple.

As mentioned, the other 2 flavors has lesser alcohol content (4.5%). The Elderflower has a slightly tangy zest and a tinge of fresh lime flavors. You can taste the sweet floral aroma with hints of fresh fruits with every sip.

For the Red Berries, it leaves a mild aftertaste of the culinary apples without being too sweet nor too tart.

Although ciders can be quite mild, I still like them to be served over ice cubes 🙂

Ciders are simply good for chilling sessions anytime after work or during the weekends. You can relax and unwind with your pals in a rewarding manner. Whether it is served in a pub setting or at a weekend picnic party, Strongbow Apple Ciders connects you with friends and reenergizing through real conversations 🙂

The same for us too 🙂

Find the ciders at Cold Storage and FairPrice Finest stores island-wide and at selected bars and restaurants like Timbre, Switch, Prive and more!
