HAPPY NEW YEAR LOVELIES! It’s 2019, have you made your new year resolutions? Well, I’m not a believer of having concrete resolutions penned down because often, those are probably things you’ll try to achieve only in the first month of the year. For me, it’s about life-long resolutions. I strive to be kinder, to broaden my vision, to watch out for new opportunities that’ll come knocking on my door and of course, to love myself more!
Loving myself means taking good care of my own well-being and that includes pampering my tresses! Before 2018 ended, I took time to indulge in a Tokio Inkarami Hair Treatment at the MOST Instagrammable hair salon in Singapore – Chez Vous: HideAway.
The festive season is upon us and with all the holiday sales going on, I’m sure everyone is preparing Christmas presents for their loved ones! I personally haven’t started shopping but I will, soon! What about you?

Serums are must-haves for me when it comes to my skincare regime. Oh, but then again, my skincare regime is pretty extensive so… Anyway, if you thought that you could skip serum and go straight to just applying moisturiser, you’re only half right.
Serums are products that can be chock-full of moisturising ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides etc. which may seem like replacements for moisturisers. However, serums do not contain “sealing” ingredients which moisturisers have, that are used to prevent moisture from leaving your skin. Most of the time, serums are rich in ingredients to target specific skin concerns such as dullness, acne, wrinkles, dryness to name a few. For me, I battle with skin dullness, uneven skin texture, acne and dryness so serums are my lifesavers.
Here are 5 of my favourite serums that I cannot live without:
Ever since I embarked on the LA VIDA Eyebrow Embroidery service, I am beyond thrilled how much time I can save in the morning getting ready for work! For me, prior to the eyebrow embroidery, I had to dedicate a whopping 10 minutes to fill in my brows. With my brows already looking full and natural, I can now move on to focus on the other aspects of my day-to-day makeup, such as my eyeshadow look (you guys know how much I love colours on my eyelids)!
About a month after my first eyebrow embroidery with LA VIDA, I had to head back to LA VIDA again for the touch-up service. A touch-up service is important because it will help reinforce the brow colour and shape so that your brows will last for a longer time.
Surprise boxes are always fun because you never know what you’re going to get until you unbox! This year, the Lazada Surprise Box is here again, but this time, with over 99 brands participating! Last year, I’ve reviewed the Mamonde Surprise Box which contained an entire skincare regime for only SGD29!
What is a Surprise Box?
It’s a box of products retailing at SGD29 or SGD49 (WHAT? ONLY?!) but with products worth around SGD100! I’m so happy that innisfree is one of the brands because I’ve been a fan of their skincare products, especially their masks!
