October 2014 PSLove Box: Review

It’s the time of the month and PSLove is here to save the week again! This time round, it’s yellow! Not a fan of yellow but I was really excited to peek into it to see what’s brewing inside. Personally, I love that it’s a care package sent to you days before your period so you don’t have to do anything to prep for it. Especially for ladies staying in hostels, I feel that this is a very convenient and practical subscription! I realised that for last month and this month, I didn’t need to search for my period supplies. Instead, I know that there’s PSLove and I conveniently reach for this box when I need!
Alright, you have seen the contents already but let’s go into detail for each of them shall we?

As usual, dear Peckying has it all thought out! To make this subscription even sweeter, she always adds in a note of encouragement, personalised with your name! I also really like that each and every product inside is carefully curated to suit your preferences and needs! I find myself always looking forward to the chocolates inside. What a glutton, I know 😛

13rushes Masterclass Contouring Kit: Review

How are you doing all week? It’s Friday already, time really zooms past huh? 😉 Today’s going to be a review on some brushes I have been loving! I have been loving makeup brushes from 13rushes for a while now ever since I bought a set of 8!
13rushes aspires to bring cruelty-free alternatives to beauty lovers all over the world. They believe looking great doesn’t equate to harming animals. Contrary to popular beliefs, getting fur off animals isn’t as pain-free as a haircut.  Every year, millions of animals are trapped and strangled in the wild, electrocuted and skinned in fur farms. Beauty should never come at the expense of the animals. As such, 13rushes brushes are 100% free of animal parts. Simply put, cruelty-free. They are individually handcrafted and made of synthetic HD fibres for that pixel-perfect look!
Courtesy of Yuhui and Charlene of 13rushes, I got the chance to experiment with the NEW Masterclass Contouring Kit – a kit consisting of 3 vegan brushes for that perfect sculpted look! Thank you 13rushes! 🙂

Japanese Fine Dining in Aoki

Hello hello! This isn’t something related to beauty, makeup, or close to anything I usually talk about but I absolutely need to blog about this awesome experience at the wonderful Aoki Restaurant by the Les Amis Group. ♡♡♡
If you know me, I’m never a foodie and I don’t go around hunting for food, even though I have a huge love for Japanese cuisine especially sushi and sashimi (I can eat my Amaebi every day!). However, after stepping into Aoki, I must add the Mazechirashi (S$40) to my list of “Must-Eat” food. If you’ve had Aoki’s Mazechirashi before, you’ll naturally know what I mean. I’m pretty sure it’s happiness and love in a bowl that you’d want to keep coming back for (if you have spare cash of course or feel like indulging yourself).
As a non-foodie, I didn’t hold any expectations even though it’s by the Les Amis Group but I am certainly wow-ed and amazed by the freshness of the food prepared as well as the quality service experience. Without further ado, let’s dig into my bowl of fresh goodness! JUST. LOOK. AT. THAT.
