LOTD – Oriental Chic

Standard

Was out for tea with my fellow contributors quite some time ago and decided to dress up in a somewhat different manner.

Syd mentioned I was pretty experimental in my sartorial choices and I have to agree. Until I hit the dreaded 30s, I would continue to play around with my fashion styles.

Here’s my look of the day.

P1140797

Kimono wrap dress – H&M Conscious Collection

Suede caged heels – BATA

Black ceramic watch – Skagen (previously featured)

Floral hair tie – Helen

P1140784

Was also dressed for my sister-in-law’s 21st birthday party so the outfit served dual purpose. I loved the drapes of the dress, how it is modest yet it exudes a classiness and stands out on its own. It needs minimal accessories and a loose bun serves to make the outfit more polished.

Here’s a cuppa to a new year ahead! Cheers!

[LOTD] Girly Girl – Stripes & Skater

Standard

Hey everyone! It’s the holiday season…and in Singapore, it means it’s been raining alot. The slight dipped in temperature had me pulling out my sweater but it’s still not cool enough to warrant a typical fall/winter getup.

Scarf – ASOS 5 pounds?
Jeans from levis- present from Syd!

Chocolatier Teng Ei Liang opened Truffs in September 2009 in a shop house along Telok Ayer Street, as part of his passion for chocolate making, and in sharing the art of chocolate appreciation. His journey began at eight when he accompanied his mother to baking classes. In the process, he grew to love baking and found his way to the famed Le Cordon Bleu in London to enhance his skills. And there, he encountered the traditional art of making chocolate truffles. Enthralled by its natural richness, and inspired by the joy they bring, he started Truffs as a mode to let Singapore savor the richest, most sensuous truffles around.

Random Acts of Kindness

Standard

December is usually a favourite month with most people..it’s the holiday season for many people..kids get a break from school and adults clear their annual leave..and a good number will be celebrating christmas and the new year πŸ™‚

In light of certain events, I’ve decided to do my part to do something nice for complete strangers..

240661173807620410_uumFmi98_b

Here is my proposed list of ideas…
. Pay the order behind me at a drive through
. Leaving parking coupons on windscreens
. Stick a dollar bill in a children’s book at the library
. Buy a giftcard at starbucks/movies and give it to the person behind me
. Stick some coins on a vending machine at the hospital
. Leave a bag of groceries outside someone’s door
. Buy an extra umbrella to give to someone on a rainy day
. Send anonymous flowers to the office receptionist
. Tape an anonymous joke to a colleague’s monitor
. Compliment a stranger sincerely
. Donate my preloved clothes (in good condition) to charity
. Leave a box of stawberries on a colleague’s desk anonymously

…please lemme know if you have ideas to share, i would love to hear them

pay it forward concept illustrated with white chalk drawing on blackboard

And to spread this, I would include a handwritten note to pass on the kindness by paying it forward

[Review] Rachel K See the Difference Toner/Lotion

Standard

Toner is one of the fastest thing that runs out in the house cos i share them with my family so i get to try alot!

I am always curious about Rachel K skin care, and slight skeptical.

but i read so much about it i must try!
photo (1)

IMG_1083

good that it has whitening properties and contains alot of other things i dont know about but sounds good.

IMG_1084
this gets my thumbs up for
1) no parabens
2) not alot of ingredients

i prefer to put toner on a cotton pad rather then directly on my palm and face.
photo (2)

what i dont like about this cap.
photo (3)
i think rachel should not have selected this bottle to contain her toner. the toner consistency is like water, maybe thicker like juice?
but each time i press to dispense, it squirts out really fast at high speed.
if not for the cotton pad, i think its actually too forceful and pain?
this type of cap is more suitable for gel or cream type.

anyway.. to the real review.
this def has some apple fragrance, and its rather strong in my opinion, but i can live with it.
it kinda stings my pimples slightly when there is some open wound.
it also leaves a sticky afterfeel which doesnt go away.

im not sure abuot whitening but my skin is still in good condition when using this so i really dont mind getting this again. it keeps my skin moist and fair πŸ™‚

Retails at $24.90 at selected Watsons if im not wrong.

[Review] 2B Alternative Skirt Ready

Standard

IMG_1249

I hope you are not new to this product. this is pretty famous in Hong Kong and now its in Singapore for some time.
it promises to reduce inches of your legs.

2bb

Product description
Achieve slimmer and shapelier hips and legs in as little as 45 days. Caffeine reduces fat deposits in hips and legs, dramatically reducing their wide or bloated appearance. Saw Palmetto, Epilobium Roseum and Cucurbita Seed then inhibit hair growth by shrinking pores to restrain hair growth, resulting in smoother and hair free legs. Regular use leaves legs toned, whiter and hair-free, ready to be flaunted using your shortest skirt.

IMG_1251
i do however am abit concerned about the poor grammer haha

IMG_1250
looks pretty safe.

here is my strawberry amount. it is off dirty yellowish colour and smells like some herbal plants.
IMG_1252

i would massage this amt into my legs from ankle to thighs. but after 3 weeks, i just do from ankle to knees as i figure thats too much fat on my thighs for this to penetrate to the muscles.

this shd be applied twice a day but sometimes i just do it once..

i like how this isnt greasy at all and in fact doesnt leave any feeling on my hands. i dont even really need to wash my hands sometimes.

also, the formula also prevents leg hair from growing apparently and contains hyluronic acid to moisturize the skin.

Results?
i started with 34cm around the fattest part of my calves.
after 1 mth of usage
IMG_1254

not much diff leh.
so im really not sure this is due to my inconsistency, too much fat in my calves and this seem to be for muscles?

anyway, i went to buy another tube of 2B for Leg. why? because it seems to work for so many ppl i dont beleive it doesnt work for me! i will be more diligent

also, 2B for leg is different from this one. 2B for leg is targetted at the calves while 2B skirt ready is for the entire leg.

Let me know if this works for you.
