My First Fashion Event as a Model

I know this may come as a surprise to some of you, I too am surprised myself that I actually agreed to take up this assignment. It is going to be a challenge indeed and those who know me well, would know that I love challenges. I like accepting challenges and giving my best to accomplish them because the sense of achievement is something which money can never buy.

I have been rather busy and packed for these 2 to 3 weeks as I have taken up extra assignments on my own (more on that soon!) and one of them is my first fashion event which I will be modelling for. I have attended a few fashion events before but as part of the audience and not as a model.

Before agreeing to participate for this event, I actually took some time to consider carefully because modelling wasn’t really my thang. It gives me a bad impression being a model, but yeah I guess I was just being biased. I usually shun assignments that depends heavily on beauty (oh the irony of being a beauty blogger?) because I never want to be looked upon as a bimbo. I guess I’ve gotta change my mentality on that now because taking up this modelling assignment actually allows me to learn several things which I believe would benefit me. Am trying to be positive here, haha. I will be blogging about the post-event filled with pretty pictures, hopefully! 😛

So yes, if you would like to see me strut officially for the very first time, please feel free to make it for the event!

New funky colours for my hair done at Headlines Hairdressing Salon!

I’ve been wanting to get funky colours for my hair for quite some time now but didn’t have the courage to go ahead due to work requirements. I’m working in corporate office (where the offices of big bosses are) as the company’s Legal Counsel. Surely such a position deters one from having funky hair?

I regretted so much that I didn’t get it done while I still could, when I was still a student back then.

But nevertheless, it’s the festive season and #YOLO (you only live once), so I was thinking, heck! Why not? If not now, then when?

Would be ridiculous if I have to have funky hair when I was older!

So yes, I’ve decided to head down to my sponsor salon, Headlines Hairdressing 🙂

Charles, my hair stylist and the Creative Director, did inform me beforehand that pink is not as lasting as other colours such as purple, but I knew what I wanted and went ahead with pink anyway. 🙂

The pink hair dye is from Goldwell Elumen 🙂

Goldwell® Elumen®
Goldwell® Elumen® Color is a hair color that illuminates the hair inside out to achieve unique and creative results as well as stunning colors that clients request in your salon every day.
Its unique technology makes Elumen Color a physical color, which means that it works entirely without oxidising but still achieves spectacular and long-lasting color results.

-Sharp, fresh brilliant colors
-Exceptional shine
-Incredible durability
-Amazing, healthy looking hair

What is so amazing when dyeing hair with Headlines, especially with Charles is that every penny spent is well-worth! Just take a look at the colours! Previous pictures above only captured a single colour tone but look at how different it is when light rays are captured and reflected off them!
I love how the shade is not just one plain boring colour tone but contains of at least 2 funky and vibrant undertones as well!

You can see that other than fuchsia, it actually glimmers with orangey undertone as well! That’s like paying 2 colours for the price of 1! Totally worth it! 😀

Food Review – Le Chocolat Cafe + Updates

Last Sunday saw me snacking and chillax-ing with the bf  at Le Chocolat Cafe at Ann Siang Road. Before that, we were around the corner at Keong Saik Road for food tasting at Moojaa, Mookata Thai  BBQ Steamboat. I was very honored to be invited for food tasting (my first!) and many more to come (pending plans). Will be blogging about it soon, once I retrieve the pictures from my Canon G1x – woes of wanting high quality reso pictures but attached with the hassle of extracting it from an external source – unlike instant uploading, posting and transferring into my exploding dropbox folder via iPhone. Heh.

Bf is the adventurous sort and he has been wanting to explore Ann Siang Hill/Road for the longest time. We have plans to explore other areas too! Because Singapore is too boring, exploring is fun! For me, I am the boring old fart who prefers consistency and totally not adventurous. I don’t like trying out new things. Take for example my food choices. I can eat and drink almost the same thing over and over again and not wanting to climb out of my comfort zone. Whereas for bf, he likes trying new things so in a way, we complement each other! 🙂 They say opposites attract, anyway don’t they?

Not wanting to spoil the mood, I “trekked” Ann Siang Hill. Okay, fine, it’s just some small slightly elevated relief area. But thank god I was in flats, if not !@#$%

We toured around quite a while, snapping pictures and all before deciding to settle down at a cozy cafe – Le Chocolat Cafe 🙂

Didn’t manage to snap pictures of the whole cafe. Was too embarrassed to do so in public…And that’s bf’s half face lol =x

Latte, Rainbow Cake with Choco Fudge and Mocha Frappe

Photo 23-06-2013 08 39 29 PM

I squealed at the sight of the rainbow cake! I saw many people posting pictures on it because and others who even baked them own (I can’t cook for nuts! Well, except maggie mee :D)

But but but, I think it’s quite over-rated! I went ahead for it even though its quite pricey – $7.90 per piece, because I wanted to try! Bf’s adventurous disease passed on to me, lol =p

I tried a few mouthfuls, and then told bf, “feels like eating the colouring leh…” which he agreed.

I didn’t quite like the ‘artificial’ colouring taste 😦

Photo 23-06-2013 08 23 12 PM

I think I look damn ugly in this picture, especially my nose. Ugh. Nose fillers, anyone? LOL.

Bf’s latte tasted not bad, my mocha frappe was okay too. Perhaps I should have requested for no whip cream. And I didn’t know mocha frappe could last me throughout the night, well almost, that I suffered from insomnia that night! UGH!

All in all, Le Chocolat Cafe is a good place to chill if you don’t mind spending that extra cash 🙂

Trying my best to suck my tummy in….HAHAHA.

Oh and before I forget, I’ve been sponsored with DRx products!!! Read alot of raves about their products, especially on the Comedone Formula (CF) which supposedly remove blackheads and whiteheads! Also, my dermatologist – Dr Yanni (young pretty lady) complimented on my skin condition!!! Yes!!! I’m so happy and it’s been silently whirling inside my head ever since my last visit. I am truly blessed with good skin by nature 🙂

That could also be the reason why the number of products sponsored are lesser than other bloggers’. On top of these products, I am also given the (all not in picture) X cream (to remove acne marks – due to my acne breakout caused by stress/skin biotics/SK II products) as well as a strong lightener (for my birthmarks) and eczema ointment (complained about my cold sore problem and guess what, after applying the ointment, my cold sore hasn’t been ‘activated’ ever since!!! Damn happy abt it because this means less embarrassing moments of having sausages lips! Google cold sore but don’t judge me on this. Had this cold sore problem since sec sch days. Most prolly transmitted through bacteria via saliva.)

My main purpose of dropping by DRx Clinic was actually to remove my birthmarks. I have 3 in total – left elbow which is the size of a 50c coin, 1 HUGEASS one on my left inner thigh which is heart-shaped – yes I kid you not and another lighter, in fact, the lightest on my right thigh – also the size of a 50c coin).

The first consultation was to assess whether my type of birthmarks can be removed – pls note that not all birthmarks can be removed and laser treatments require alot of patience because they require a long-term follow up and ALOT OF TOLERANCE for painnn….

Will blog about this again when I’ve more results to review. As for now, I can only say that the Comedone Formula (CF) works very effectively for many others and within 1-2 days, I could already see promising results!!! I cannot rave more 🙂

WIN PRETTY APPARELS!

Hello you! Here’s a little update on my current life right now. Previously, I’d mentioned that I will be going on a hiatus for awhile due to exams and yes, I’m still having exams which would only end this Friday.

For those who don’t already know, I’m currently pursuing my Master of Laws… So yes, I’m taking a postgraduate course. I feel flattered that some people still thinks I’m an undergrad because it only means 1 thing, that I still look young right? And that I’m still able to pull off as an undergrad. HAHAHA. Self-denial.

So anyway, I’ll be updating this space more often once the nightmarish days are over. Nightmarish days – how ironic, heh. Will be updating on food and beauty reviews so stay tuned! 🙂

Nevertheless, thanks for checking back on this little unpopular dusty virtual space of mine, really really appreciate it 🙂

My Online Shop!

The time has finally come! I am back being a boss… I know I’ve countless online shops before but products were mostly on a pre-order basis. However, I’d decided to take a chance this time round and bring in instocks! I know how long waiting time is such an ass for pre-orders so I’m hoping that things would change for the better this time round!

My entrepreneurial (or rather, techopreneurship) spirit has been growing fiercely in me ever since I was young. I’ve been selling clothes, accessories, shoes, handmade accessories such as earings, necklaces and bracelets and I had even went to the extend to design shoes to sell! I’ve even customised some for customers – who were my niece and nephew la.

Take a look!

diyshoes5 diyshoes6 diyshoes diyshoes2 diyshoes3 diyshoes4

But I’d decided to cease operations because it was very time-consuming and lots of efforts were required. Plus, I was still a full-time student at that time during Uni days… and although you can’t convert some intangible into monetary value, it was quite obvious that the effort, time, blood and sweat, not forgetting the numerous of materials required did not justify the price of the shoes. Furthermore, I can’t be pricing my items too high too.

Yup, so here’s my new online shop :
