Creer Beaute Sailor Moon!

I went to the Creer Beaute launch held at Oasia Hotel yesterday evening.
Creer Beaute is a Japanese Anime make up line, famous for its Versailles and Sailor Moon series of make up products. Now, we can get these products here in Singapore, at Watsons. :)
 I love the sailor moon series, especially the Star Power Prism Eyeliners because it has a shimmer effect that make your eyes shine like an anime character with the huge glossy eyes...
There was live make up demos by Japanese make up artist Mawaki Yamamoto. And we also got the chance to try out all the products at our tables.
Miracle Romance Star Power Prism Liquidliner Black ($24.90), La Rose de Versailles Pencil Eyeliner Brown, and Black ($22.60 each). These are all easy to apply, smudge-free and are long lasting. The liquid liner gives a much more shiny and defined line, but I found that the pencil liners have super incredible staying power. I'm impressed.
Sparkly colours for your eyelids. You can use one colour on its own or do a double line, a black or brown first, and then a colour line above it. Miracle Romance Star Power Prism Lameliner in Blue, Orange Gold, Red and Green. The blue and red are priced at $24.70 each. The Orange Gold comes with a brown liquid liner in a set, the Green comes with a black liquid liner in a set. Each set is $36.90.
Creer Beaute generously gifted these products for me to try out. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy! 
Which do you want? Miracle Romance Star Power Prism Lameliner Red or Blue? Head to my facebook post (click here) and comment there on which colour you prefer. Winner will be picked by randomiser tomorrow.  Just sharing the love . xx

Juventus Vs Singapore Select - The highlights

Last Friday evening was my first time at our new stadium at the Sportshub, I was there to see Juventus training. WOW! So impressed with our new stadium, it is top notch!

The training session was such a big treat for the Juventus fans. Here's a clip from the Juventus Youtube page on their training here... #juventour You can see me at 1.08min hhaaaa (got to thank my Fb friend for pointing that out to me lol).

On match day itself, there was such a great atmosphere at the stadium. The crowd cheered on both teams, but got especially excited whenever Singapore got close to scoring. After a few false starts, the crowd eventually managed to get the Kallang Wave going, that was so fun.

Andrea Pirlo scored the first two goals for Juve. People loveeeee him. He even got a standing ovation as he walked off the field shortly after the second half (a substitution). I think we would have liked to see at least one goal for Singapore, but the final score was 5- nil. Still, everyone was in good spirits and it was an enjoyable match.
Here are the match highlights, if you haven't seen it on TV yet.
Next match ( in October) we will have BRASIL and JAPAN! Woot! Wait for it ... wait for it...
So loving our new stadium and looking forward to being there again.

Forever Products in my Fridge

Here's a peek into my messy fridge... you can tell that we are not OCD type personalities when it comes to organisation and neatness. Haaaa.... 
I want to share with you 2 products that give great health benefits. They were introduced to me by my friend Brenda a couple weeks ago. It's the Forever Bee Honey and the Aloe Vera Gel drink.
All of Forever's bee products are sourced from their own beehives, away from all contamination and pollution. This honey contains all natural ingredients- bee pollen, royal jelly and propolis.

Mmm... I do love a good honey. This is so thick, natural and yummy. You can pour it on pancakes, incorporate it into your cooking recipies, in your tea, etc. It's so tasty, and it's a healthy and nutritious sweetener.
Forever Aloe Vera Gel is a drink that comes in a 1 Litre bottle which should last about 3 weeks for me. I only need a small glass of it a day (about 60ml), and it's best when I drink it icy cold straight from the fridge. 

This gel has not been diluted or bulked up with other substances. Drinking Aloe Vera Gel is detoxifying, it has a rich supply of building materials to maintain healthy skin and combat the effects of aging.

Aloe Vera makes your immune system work better for itself. It is epitheleal which means that, if you drink it, it sinks into the lining of your gut. Your body will absorb the nutrients easily. It also helps cleanse your system. by cleaning the lining of the gut, thus enabling the gut to absorb more nutrition from the food that you eat.

Drinking Aloe Vera can be helpful in helping common problems such as skin conditions(eczema, dermatitis, acne, etc), immune system disorders (Irritable Bowel Syndrom IBS, lupus, Crohn's disease).
Aloe Vera has anti aging cosmetic properties. It gives skin a smoother look by improving cohesion. It improves skin texture with its intense moisturisation, and reduces wrinkle formation by improving the replication of skin fibroblasts (the cells that make collagen and elastin fibres).

All of Forever's products are organic, have the Aloe Science Council Seal of Approval, the Kosher Seal of Approval and the Islamic Seal of Approval. You can be rest assured you are consuming the best.

Fresh Colour = More Youthful Look

My birthday is coming... I'm turning 34 at the end of next month. Woah, I'm already in the mid 30s... where did time go? 
I still love my pink ends, but my brown hair was looking really flat and lifeless, plus ugly black roots were showing because I didn't have time to go down to the salon for 2 months now. Anyway, as a special birthday treat to myself, and in a bid to maintain a youthful appearance, I refreshed my colour at Shunji Matsuo Hair Studio a few days ago. 
My stylist Willam gave my hair a light brown colour refresher. But we kept the pink as it is without re-colouring it because I love the shade of pink that it has faded to so far. I'm impressed that the pink has such good staying power... usually with such colours, they fade away quite fast.
 After colouring, it was time for my usual hair and scalp treatment.
 Oh I really missed the hair treatments there for the past couple of months. They are so pampering and of course, the results after are great. Soft and glossy hair, and a clean healthy scalp.

After a quick blowdry and trim, I was good to go! So ready for September and can't wait for my birthday! 

Enhancing your hair colour as you age is a way to keep looking young and fresh. Lighten up your color a few shades—this will take years off! The key is to choose a tone that suits you. I trust William's eye for colour compatibility. Super love this soft brown shade for me.

BAG. CHARM. LOVE !!!! What a fun photoshoot!

Just had a BagCharmLove shoot at Oxwell & Co. on Ann Siang Hill. 
It's in an iconic, old building with gorgeous interiors. It's a bar and restaurant with different rooms like the dining room, the study, rooftop... each with their own unique character. You should check this place out.
Only kidding! LOL
This time it was with BagCharmLove's newest model- Kayla. Do look out for her pics on the website, this latest collection has just been launched today! :) So you get first dibs before your favourite HL dresses sell out.
In this collection, I love that there are splashes of vibrant colour. And not every design is body hugging throughout, there are quite a selection which have flare skirts, so if you're worried you cannot pull off a body hugging dress then you can go for the flare ones. (But you most probably CAN pull off the body hugging ones! These dresses are made from high quality designer bandage dress type material which sculpts your curves).
 Pretty toga front view...
... and back view. Oh by the way, apart from the many photos which BagCharmLove shows on their website/e-store for each dress, they now include a mini-runway video clip too so you can see the dress in motion.
There will also be a couple of very chic little black dresses which make sexy party dresses. Peekaboo and cut out details help stir things up a bit. :)
Elegant off shoulder and a comfortable flirty flare hem.
Click here to shop at BagCharmLove, and I'm sponsoring $5 off your first order. You will receive a $5 voucher upon registering at BagCharmLove through that link and you can use the voucher immediately (or anytime you want).

Hating on Harry

I was watching the National Day Parade 2014 live on TV last Saturday... kudos to Dick Lee for music direction... thoroughly enjoyed the whole show and it was not vomit inducingly tacky like the last few years. That man has my respect.

I was logged in to Facebook while watching the parade on TV, because I'm a social media addict, and it was heart warming to see all the National Day updates from my friends on my newsfeed. All fillled with family, friends, love. And good sentiments. You know, you really choose to be happy and embrace all that is good in life. That's the way it should be.
I loved looking at their proud & happy pictures on this day. (Hope you don't mind me sharing your posts which brought me much cheer, but if you would like me to delete, just let me know.)

Another thing that struck a chord in me, was when Lee Kuan Yew arrived. He looked so frail that it made me sad to see him weak. I'm sure there were others who felt the same.
Then it surprised me that some people on Facebook were posting nasty comments about him. Why are they hating on Harry? It's like these people have no sense of empathy. It made them feel good to see him old and frail. They relish it and even laugh. Someone even called him an orang utan.  Even if you don't like how he ruled Singapore, such criticism and wishing ill fate upon others is very poor form. I suppose people who are helpless can only vent their frustrations through slagging. But you should feel like an ass, not feel proud about your lack of class.
Holy Moley!! Did I just see a zombie on tv? Hehe...
By the way, I'm neither pro-PAP nor anti-PAP, I vote based on the choices available. And if there's an opposition I believe can do the job better, I will definitely vote for what I think is best.

I think Lee Kuan Yew has done an awesome job picking up the pieces when Singapore was in shambles 49 years ago, and building our nation to the formidable one we have today. Ok, he may not be the same race as me. And I feel Eurasians in Singapore do not get so many perks in terms of government funding. But I don't expect my government to pick up my slack anyway. So, I'm still grateful for all that Lee Kuan Yew has done.
A living doll / Puppet is alive
I am not so bigoted that I cannot see the good he has brought upon all of us. But I see that some of my Facebook friends are not like that. Such a shame.
XX said there's a puppeteer at the back of his chair. I said they fixed wires in his body and there's a controller in the control room. My brain is full of sci-fi.
Calling him a rag doll/ puppet (I assume because there was one shot on tv where it showed someone having to grip Lee Kuan Yew by the waistband of this trousers to support him, and also to help him sit down. Bahahaha! Haters, please take a good look at yourselves, what will you be like when you're 90 huh? There's no need to mock this old man because he has done so much more in his lifetime than you have in yours plus your children's lifetimes put together, so yeah set them a great example by just moaning and mocking an old man.

Yes, life in Singapore is tough but there are pros and cons everywhere in this world. Blame yourself if u cannot succeed, not the government. No one owes you a bed of roses, so stop acting so entitled!

For every one of you that leaves this country there are a few thousand others (at least) who are queuing to get in and take your place here. 

Pffft... if not for Lee Kuan Yew, you would be herding chickens in some shit filled kandang.

P/S - Normally, I never delete comments people make  on my blog, but I will have to delete race related comments here. It's not just one race that is hating on LKY, so don't turn it into a racial thing. K, thanks!
