Just to share with you guys some of the hot things you might miss last year!
These are some awesome contributions of articles educating the public like you and me on the latest trends in Beauty, Fashion, Sex & Love and Lifestyle issues!
As you may or may not know, I am the Beauty writer for My Fat Pocket so I’ll be sharing of my articles as well, together with the rest 🙂
1. Korean Celebrities’ Most Wanted Facial Features
With all the hype about K-POP, who can resist such beauties from Korea?
Ulzzang is a popular South Korean term literally meaning “best face” or “good-looking”. Originally used as a slang term, this word in the English lexicon has evolved into describing a person that follows specific style of fashion.
Plastic surgery is no longer a taboo in the modern era. With figures skyrocketing, countries such as Singapore, Thailand and Korea have been attracting both men and women in getting their aesthetic features fixed by plastic surgeons.
Korea has been named the top country with most plastic surgeries done and shopping with bandages is so common that the public will not bat their eyelids at.
K-pop craze has been on the rise and continues to heat up the fever in many countries. Both men and women who seek to fulfil their ideal look, more often than not, refer to Korean celebrities’ appearances. Here are some examples.
2. Beauty Blunders And How To Avoid Them
1 of the main NO-NOs in this article is the piling of make-up foundation on your face! I am personally against this and I cringe at girls who have different skin tone on their face from the rest of their bodies, especially in pictures taken with flash! Choosing the correct skin tone for your foundation is extremely important and don’t pile them unnecessarily. Use a concealer when required. Unless necessary touch-up is required, the more you pile, the more pores get clogged which would escalate the possibilities of pimples/acne popping out! And no, looking like Geisha is definitely not a good thing.
3. Party Hard with Funky & Dramatic False Eyelashes
“Party rock is in the house tonight. Everybody just have a good time. And we gonna make you lose your mind. Everybody just have a good time…”
I’m sure most of you would be familiar with these lyrics by Party Rock Anthem.
Who says partying is only reserved for festive seasons? If you’re a party animal, partying is a daily affair!
Check out these funky eyelashes in this article to have a feel of what is it like to be different and stand out from the crowd!
4. One In Five Online Shoppers Buy Fake Goods
And moving on to Fashion articles, this chosen one definitely caught my eye over at My Fat Pocket!
The study revealed that 20 per cent of people based in Europe and the US browsing for discounted designer products on the internet mistakenly end up purchasing from fraudulent websites.
The risk of online shopping is in existence but what is more painful is the amount you pay for authentic branded goods, only to receive fake ones which are usually made of poor workmanship. The lower ‘grades’ and qualities can be easily segregated from the authentic ones.
Even with online forums which provides a platform for sellers to sell their branded bags as second hand goods, there runs a risk of being deceived and cheated of.
Receipts and serial codes are no longer a true verification of the authenticity of the goods. With photoshop and what not, anything and everything is possible to replicate.
So be careful.
5. Melissa Launches Spring Summer 2013 Collection
Are you a fan of Melissa shoes?
Know for its cute owl logo, it won’t be long till it takes the girls’ hearts by storm!
They have recently launched their new collection filled with exciting and thrilling designs!
Part of the Spring Summer 2013 collection is also the Melissa classics where iconic Melissa shoes are given a splash of summer colours. Following the colour-blocking trend, the collection incorporates this design throughout the range of shoes. Featuring the colour-blocking design are Dance Hits, Aranha Hits, Prism and Gradient where two striking colours match to create an amazing summer look. The Dance Hits are also perfect for those long summer nights partying as they come foldable with an exclusive bag that you can bring along in your purse.
Shoes are 1 of the many which ladies can never get enough of.
6. Pant Suit: How to Own the Look & Look Desirably Feminine
Love wearing pants but daren’t because you’re afraid that you might turn off the guys with the masculine look?
This fashion article would help considerably.
Many are swapping the gowns for the androgynous pant suits, even on the red carpet. But which version will we look like – the Stiff-like corporate minions kind or the sex kitten Megan Fox version?
Sometimes, the women have got to show who wears THE PANTS. 😉
7. Is he Good Enough for you? Take the Tests to Find out!
In every adult relationship, there will come a point where you find yourself asking… is he a keeper or am I wasting my time? Do you decide based on a gut feel or are there glaringly obvious signs as to whether he’s a good man for you? Here are some tests which naturally crops up in every normal couple’s relationship. Pay attention to them when it happens and you will find your answers.
It is quite embarrassing to admit that in the recent years, more men are looking elsewhere for life-long partners instead in our own sunny island. This is definitely 1 of the many social problems in Singapore. With the increasing chances and almost near gender equality, women are currently in a much better financial position than before. This gives them a chance to empower over the men who feel helpless, meek and ego-busted.
Financial problems aside, with such differences in the current context, problems in other aspects of life replicate as well.
Read this useful article to find out if he’s worth keep and more importantly, your time.
8. Why Women & Men Think Differently
Apart from the obvious and inevitable biological differences, another stark contrast between the 2 sexes are their mentalities, which causes some couples to deviate from seeing things eye to eye.
1 of the many differences consolidated in this article is :
Men are socialized to make direct requests, while women often just leave hints. When a man does not get things right, she will be pissed off that he did not read her mind.
Some men are rather insensitive when it comes to remarks but are they really to blame? They may just be honest about their thoughts and comments but often with low EQ and thus having to offend women.
While some women tries to play hard by being indirect, more often than not, they expect men to GET IT. Get the hint. But unfortunately, most men don’t. That is why women are better at playing mind games than men 😉
9. Celebrity Couples Who Stood The Test of Time
You have heard of the countless number of celebrities breaking up and patching back and the myriads of partners they have in their whole lives.
Now, wouldn’t you be interested to know which couples have long lasting relationships?
Aren’t they just looking sweet together?
10. The World’s 3 Best & Worst Men to Date
As much as more men are looking elsewhere for long-term commitments, the ladies are keeping up with the game as well.
It is difficult to shun away from the public’s eye if a Chinese Singaporean lady dates another nationality, especially the Caucasians. Sarong Party Girl is the term for them but if love knows no boundaries, why give a damn about what others say? 😉
Those interested to know which nationalities are the best to date should definitely bookmark this article.
