let’s get started with ALDO

Every fashionista cannot do without incredible footwear, yours truly included. This Fall/Winter, ALDO launches fashionable designs fit for urban living, weekend wandering & party rocking. Time for me to get my hands on some newfound loves!

Here we were making adjustments just before the event started, & we got a lil’ carried away with all that camwhoring. It’s pefectly fine to be vain when you’re having a good hair day. Thank you Salon Vim for ensuring my tresses silky smooth!

There was a specially choreographed cabaret inspired dance sequence reminiscent of the showgirls from Las Vegas which we liked! Those ALDO shoes were a palette of bold colours they reminded me of candies from the marts. I want a piece of it!

What’s an event without a best-dressed contest? Some of the contestants were so spontaneous when it came to the catwalk segment! We were definitely entertained.

 

The rest of the night had me & Hazel fiddling with the fabulous footwear. I am extremely obsessed with the glittery flats & I must have them!

ALDO first arrived here back in 2003, look at how big it’s grown now, with stores all across Singapore! It is no doubt the brand of choice for conscious shoppers. Kudos to the high quality design at an accessible price!

Ps, on a side note, I’m really digging my new pair of skinnies in gold. Never imagined I’d actually wear it out this soon!

Don’t forget to visit your nearest ALDO store for some cutting edge fashion!

When it comes to footwear, ALDO needs no introduction. Speaking of which, I better hurry along to grab that glittery flats before it gets sold out!


Brows that Wow with Allure

They say the perfect brows bring out the total enhancement of your facial features. Hence, my morning beauty routine involves the constant fussing with my brows to perfect that arch. It’s such a shame though never once have I succeeded in making them look anywhere near decent.

Just when I thought all hope’s gone, Allure Beauty Saloon comes to the rescue! Let me take you through the Signature Eyebrow Embroidery process!

Step 1: The short consultation with the beauty therapist to determine the best brow design for a perfect fit on your face. I absolutely love my therapist Coco, she’s such a sweetheart.

Step 2 : The desired shape for the brows is then sketched & a calming lotion is applied over the brows to numb them before the embroidery begins.

Step 3: A layer of antiseptic cream is applied on the embroidered area. A round of touch up after three weeks is advisable & thereafter the embroidered colour should last for about 2 years.

And there you have it, a beautifully shaped pair of eyebrows in an hour & a half! It’s that simple, fast & easy with no bleeding or swelling during & after the process.

It’s been two weeks now. Let’s see how those brows are doing now! Doesn’t the right set of brows frame your face nicely? Looks pretty good with a tan too!

There’s no fixed template for every eyebrow & Allure Beauty customizes every eyebrow for every client. I now have brows that wow, & you can too. Allure Beauty is located conveniently at :

Tiong Bahru Plaza #05-04A (6270 8845) &

City Vibe #02-04A (6779 2242) .


because Salon Vim cares

The past week summarised. There was the dinner at Garibaldi’s where I stuff myself full with possibly the juiciest scallops.

There was also Drink Culture with Hazel. The cocktails here are to die for & my personal favourite’s the Coconut. If you’re a rum lover, you’d be hooked to this!

Alas, I’m a lil’ obsessive when it comes to touching up the roots, all that constant meddling with my hair requires a lot of TLC. Salon Vim is literally my humble abode & I have the best hairstylist ever.

Salon Vim ensures a rocking good time when you’re there. Lemme share a piece of good news with you!

the start of you & i

I love waking up to a good start, complete with eggs benedict & a tall green tea latte. Alright, I confess. The past few weeks I’ve gotten a lil overboard with the television & I’ve literally lost all mood to indulge in other form of activities. Hence, to make up for the longest wait, here’s a super long apparel post. You have been warned, be prepared to shop to your heart’s content!

make it last

A random lazy afternoon spent lazing around town, yes it’s been a long time. I’m not too sure if I’ve exactly become domesticated, even though I kinda like how that sounds.

Guess what caught my eyes over at Scape? Live percussion band dressed in fiery reds, me like! Haven’t seen this much enthusiasm in such a long time, I actually had my eyes glued to the performance.

Then I encountered this Macdonald’s bus in the same fiery shade. Isn’t it oh so adorable? Since I’m the curious sort, I just had to find out what’s behind this curtain. To find out what I discovered,check this out!

What could it be? I could spend all day guessing alone, but one’s a lonely number!
