Lip Embroidery

And so I always thought (honest opinion) that lip embroidery is a super auntie thing to do. Like who on earth would want to have red lipstick on constantly? And on days when you just wanna do like a out-of-bed look, you still need to live with that red lips? While I was doing my eyebrow embroidery touch-up back at Browart Studio, Lawrence (who runs the place) was going on and on about how the embroidery artist Jenny is super good with lip embroidery. I don’t know what happened exactly, but eventually I decided to take the plunge and try lip embroidery for myself. And that was also the time when I knew that lip embroidery is not all about red lips. Hahaha!

Hotel Clover

Staycations always work for me. Basically, I love anything that “takes me away” from reality, even for a while. This time, it was at Hotel Clover @ 33 Jalan Sultan. After researching, I realised that there are a couple of Hotel Clovers in Singapore. So if you like what you’re going to see in this post, make sure you go to the correct Hotel Clover! This is one of the newest hotel under the Hotel Clover group. I love how it looks very resort-ish and how the theme of “being close to nature” is carried out through the entire hotel nicely! Totally dig how the hotel is in a whole row of shophouses and so near my workplace!

MINI Dolce Gusto

The intensity of stylishness in a coffee machine has been revved up by a notch with the launch of the new MINI limited edition by NESCAFE Dolce Gusto. I cannot describe the excitement I felt when I first set eyes on the latest MINI Limited Edition, because it’s the sweet marriage of two of my favourite brands! But I am not surprised by the collaboration between NESCAFE Dolce Gusto and MINI because they are both so quirky, fun and daring when it comes to innovation. It’s just a matter of time that the two iconic brands would come together, no? The design of the limited edition coffee machine is gorgeous; in the classic shade of black and white, and embodying the sleek curves of the quirky MINI and NESCAFE Genio 2 Dolce Gusto coffee machine. I can see how the stylish outlook of the machine has made it perfect for homes or offices of any designs. Ok technical stuff for technical-stuff-loving friends. The MINI Limited Edition boasts of the patented thermoblock technology that delivers up …

Eyebrow Embroidery @ Browart Studio

I finally have my eyeliner embroidery done! For the longest longest longesssttt time, I’ve been toying with the idea of having my eyeliner embroidery done. Yes, I have previously tried eyebrow embroidery and I know that it is slightly painful, so I had reservations about anyone touching my eye line. And because A is doing it together with me this time, I finally had the courage to do it!

Nivea Clear

We all know the importance of removing make up at the end of the day; lack of care in that area would result in premature aging of skin, unwanted pigmentation, breakouts blah blah blah. I always try my best not to go to bed with make up on (no matter how tired I get). But I have to admit that doing the “standard” way of makeup removal can be such a pain sometimes! I wish there is a button that I just need to hit to have my make up removed and shower done immediately, but sadly, there is no easy way to a clean and healthy complexion. I recently got my hands on new products from NIVEA Make Up Clear range, and I’d like to share my findings with you. In a nutshell, the new NIVEA Make Up Clear range promises a convenient and effective cleansing routine which caters to all types of makeup users. And its Star Product would be the NIVEA Make Up Clear 3-in-1 Mud Cleanser. I love everything mud. Hahaha. …

Zombie Club

Do you look like death by 8pm too? If so, welcome to the 8pm Zombie Club. As the President of the 8pm Zombie Club, I feel obliged to let you know a little more about how things are like in our club, how you became one of us and what you can do if you want to leave the club. I have been trying some products from Clinicians – Stress & Energy Support and REM Sleep and they have helped me a lot with managing my stress and energy levels during the day and sleep during the night. But before I get to that, I have to stress how hard it is for me to get to sleep every night. I’m a huge insomniac. You will know, if you follow me on Instagram (SIGH). Here at the 8pm Zombie Club, we hardly get enough sleep. There are times (when we feel like we should sleep more), we cannot fall asleep at night. It’s the norm for us to toss and turn around on the bed …

Hotel Muse

Last weekend was a special one for me, being able to spend A’s birthday privately with her in Bangkok. I think people might think we are mad at the rate we’re visiting Bangkok. Heh! We just love this place too much! During this visit, we also checked out Le Cabinet de Curiosites of Thomas Erber, an internationally acclaimed annual exhibition, exploring both Thai and international arts. It was a feast for the eyes! This is the fifth year Le Cabinet de Curiosite was held and this time round, it was hosted by Siwilai Concept Store and Central Embassy, a brand new luxury mall in the heart of Bangkok. In this event, we saw more than 70 pieces consisting of a Lotus Arts de Vive crocodile sculpture, pieces by Thai silk company Jim Thompson, a P-Tendercool haute manufactured table, the lightest jacket ever made by Officine Generale, and an exclusive urban city bag by Maison Takuya. It’s just way too cool! Central Embassy was also like an art piece on its own – look at those …

#DFW Insiders

If you follow me (and a few other bloggers) on Instagram, then Digital Fashion Week would be not unfamiliar to you. I am really happy to be one of the few bloggers on the DFW journey, not because it means I am better than other because there are obviously SO MANY GAZILLION better bloggers than me in Singapore, but because I’ve never done anything like that before. It was a really good experience and I got to know some of the bloggers a bit better (and loving it). Because of DFW, I also got to meet like-minded people from all over the world. And they are all so darn cool. So for the record, thank you Digital Fashion Week and Nuffnang Singapore. 🙂 This is not an advertisement so I do apologise in advance if it seems a little haphazard. (It’s 3am now and it’s almost bed time) DFW started in Singapore and I got to know so many of the amazing local designers! Ok, not know the designers per se, more of get to …
