19 October 2015 Skin Care Routine

So today I did a real quick video on my skincare routine basically it consists of couple of products and also I did the video without adding any foundation or any kind of lotion to my face it was au naturale.
Not included in the video are my facial foam and facial scrubs which are Freeman Feeling Beautiful Facial Polishing Mask Charcoal and Black Sugar and the Garnier Skin Naturals Duo Clean Whitening and Pore Minimizing Duo Foam with black rice and white rice extract. Both products can be found at Watsons although the Freeman one I bought ages ago from Malaysia. It is self heating and really makes my skin super smooth I like that it has natural exfoliation rather than micro beads that can pollute the ocean as it is not exactly biodegradable. 

Apart from these I pretty use all the products in the following order:

ZA Totale Hydration Rich Lucent Lotion
Loreal Paris Youth Code Boosting Essence
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
Aqua Label White Up Emulsion S
Sunsense Daily Face SPF 50+ Invisible Tint Finish
Clarins Day Emulsion SPF 20
Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

I like to massage the product such as moisturiser and essence into the face. Rather than to simply spread it in. I find that it helps with absorbing the product in better. I also like non-sticky type of sunblocks. The Sunsense one is quite good but it can be a tad greasy at times so applying about a pea-size amount is good enough for just the face. The Clarins one tends to be a bit sticky but it has a milky consistency and blends really easily which makes for fuss free application. I heard Shiseido has a good sunblock but I have yet to try it out.

My hair dye is Beautylabo Creamy Ash from Hoyu and my nail polish is OPI Curry Up Don't Be Late and Laneige Sparkling Glitter Nail Polish in Golden Bubble.

That's all from me today.

Dating And Being Single

21 July 2015

Here is my take on dating and being single. These are my own opinions if you don't agree it is okay. Just wanted to put my thoughts on the matter up.


-It's okay to be single don't have to conform to societal expectations that you MUST be attached.

-Don't settle for anything less don't feel that you have to lower your standards for anyone.

-Do not accept disrespect from anyone does not matter if he drop dead gorgeous if he disrespects you don't have to accept it you can always have the option to leave.

-Be unafraid to be yourself being real is important don't need to feel you have to change yourself to please anyone.

-You don't have to please anyone or fit into a mould to please anyone like I said be yourself.

-Do not apologise for the decisions you made to date someone or to remain single. It's nobody's business you don't have to share what goes on in your relationship with others don't feel the pressure to share it's nobody's business.

-You should not be pressured into being in a relationship with someone don't do it because you felt you had no choice. There is always a choice in life.

-Don't get desperate it is not attractive.

-Explore feel the need to grow as a person and to be open to new people in your life don't just date the stereotypical Disney Prince type of guy. Be open to new people.

-Set achievable standards for yourself and your dating partner. Definitely don't have to change your partner to suit you but rather grow together as a couple.

-If you don't value yourself how will others value you. If you devalue yourself and lack confidence know that the guy chose you out of so many people. Own it and don't feel like you don't deserve it.

-Be authentic if they cannot accept you at your worse they do not deserve you at your best. I am not saying you have to start swearing and being all drama mama simply means you can express your negative emotions not just your positive ones with your partner. Everyone has ups and downs in life.

That's all from me today have a happy day.

Shopping For Topshop on Zalora

I have been sharing many various clothings from Zalora. Both by Zalora and by other retailers. This post will be focusing on Topshop Singapore. There are various pieces on the website I would like to pick out my favourite pieces.
Starting with the Fluted Sleeve Lace Dress it has gorgeous flutter sleeves and a lovely white lace pattern. This would be perfect for a date or a day out with friends cafe hopping.

Retails at SGD89.90
From the zoom in effect you can see the details and intricate patterns on the dress it is feminine and shows off a bit of skin without being too sexy. White also gives an innocent appeal.
Next piece is the Blue Denim Mom Shorts this shorts can be worn with anything I personally have a similar piece in a darker shade. The rough edges of the shorts gives it a rugged appeal.

Retails at SGD63.90
This other piece is another which I like because it is versatile and can be paired with any looks you can throw on a casual look and still be professional looking with this Boyfriend Blazer.

Retails at SGD139
I am also a fann of jumpsuits. This Diagional Stripe Jumpsuit is another piece which can be worn on lazy days when you cannot think of what to wear. The stripes gives it a interesting effect that is different from most jumpsuits it can also create the optical illusion of someone being taller.

The low back detail keeps the look fresh and gives an unexpected appeal to the outfit. You can pair it with a cardigan or a leather jacket it is up to you.

Retails at SGD96.90

This next piece has one of my favourite prints the leopard print. If you are not into bold safari prints you can try this shoe for a change. It can be integrated into your wardrobe without overpowering your outfit. Having shoes with a variety of prints can elevate your whole outfit. Villa Bow Pointed Flats 

Retails at SGD39.90


Interested to see more from Zalora? 

That's all from me today. Have a great week ahead people!

Review On Laneige Sparkling Party Gift Set

My friends got me a gift for my birthday and I decided to make a video and a review on it. So here is the review.

I just updated this post with the video:


Sparkling Party is a Laneige gift set. There are a mixture of nail polishes, eye shadows and lip stains.
The Sparkling Glitter nail polishes come in Golden Bubble and Pink Wine. They are simple to apply and do not have a pungent smell. You can layer the nail polish on top of other polishes. Personally I like to mix and match the glitter nail polishes and alternate with other nail polishes like gold it is up to you and your own personal style.
The lip stains come in Neon Pink and Raspberry Pink the colours look pretty natural when applied. Neon Pink is much brighter than Raspberry Pink and it smells like sweets.
The gift set also comes with an eye shadow palette it is called Sparkling Dust Eyes. It comes in Pink Dust / Gold Dust. This is rather messy to apply but much easier than using loose cosmetic glitter as it comes in a palette form. You can use a brush to apply it to your eyes but the glitter can get everywhere. So you may want to apply your eye make up first before applying the foundation.



This is my FOTD as you can see the make up looks pretty natural I applied some highlight (not in the Laneige palette) to the inner corners of my eyes so that it would look brighter and more awake. I also used some brown eyeliner to complete the look. I used the pink eye shadow in this day time look.
This is another FOTD taken on another day this time with the gold eye shadow this time I paired the look with black eyeliner. I think this look is more suitable for a glamorous night out on the town but its nothing too dramatic. If you want more drama you can always add a red lip. It is completely up to you.

I want to say thank you to my friends for the gift once again. I appreciate it :)

That's all from me today.
