Moment Watches Giveaway Time

Let’s see what I’ve been up to as of late. I’ve been quite the supermarket bandit raiding meat off the shelves. That’s also perhaps the reason why I’ve been so grounded at home & blogging consistently too! I consider that a good thing. I hope that clubs haven’t missed me too much, this is just temporary, I’d be back!

Aside from that, I did a couple of fittings over at ZARDOZE where I get to don all these beautiful gowns. I feel like a million bucks already!

Blonde Behaviour at Essensuals Bugis

If you’ve read my recent posts, you’d have noticed my hair is free from unsightly black roots & also looking incredibly silky smooth in a platinum blonde shade.

It should have been damaged by now at the frequency of my bleaching & toning, but Essensuals Bugis knows just how to care for my hair. Let’s take a look at the process of going blonde again!

Arrived at the salon with super greasy hair. Prior to this, I didn’t have my hair washed for 2 days, gross max! But trust me, if you are bent on bleaching your hair, it’s best not to wash it the day before your salon trip, or your scalp’s going to hurt so bad during the process. I learnt it the hard way so I don’t want all you vain beauties to undergo that sort of pain!

Waiting patiently for the bleach to process! Please be kind to me today & let it be less biting!

This is the part which I dislike the most. The toning process is usually done at the basin & it’s that sort of discomfort that leaves you shaking in fear. Trying to be all gungho but really, all I want is for that moment to be over. Here’s how the colour looks before blow-drying & I’m intoxicated already!

Did the Japanese Hair Spa Treatment for Anti-Frizz right after. Smooth hair here I come!

Looking at the end result makes every part of the toning process worth it! Thank you so much Isabel, no words can describe my happiness. If you’re thinking of giving your hair a makeover, be it a drastic or a subtle one, look for my stylist, Isabel. She even gave my super thick hair a really nice trim so that it falls nicely.

Farewell Goldilocks hair, it’s time to embrace Barbie-style Blonde hair! Definitely need to invest in good aftercare products to maintain this tone. Ps, this blue jacket I’m wearing is up for grabs, you can drop me an email at agrichicavenue@gmail.com for enquiries.

To make an appointment with Essensuals Bugis, please call 6333 0039 & mention ‘Agri Velt’ to enjoy special rates on all hair services!

More good news for you guys! Essensuals Bugis is turning 3 & to celebrate that, they’re offering this for the entire month of May! Simply make an appointment with them & you stand a chance to win one of these fabulous prizes! Hurry now!

   

Essensuals Bugis is located at 241-A Victoria Street, Bugis Village (right above Burger King).

feels like forever twenty-one

And we decided to cut the princess cake back at home. It was such an impromptu decision I didn’t have enough time to clean up my place. That   explains the mess, but the company I had didn’t seem to mind one bit!

The idea to wear sky high heels at home was the best idea I ever thought of. Now we’re the same height as the guys or maybe even taller.  All in the name of glam, the sad thing is I have an insane amount of sweeping to do afterwards though.

  

   

Doesn’t my birthday cake look incredibly beautiful? Plus it goes so well with my bouquet, man I feel like a real princess. It’s funny how as I age each year, I want a cake that reminds me I’m still a child at heart.

So overwhelmed with love! I couldn’t be happier that everyone’s here to celebrate with me & so appropriately dressed for once. Trust me, all of us have gotten too close for comfort, it’s actually super refreshing to be in anything other than casual wear. It’s almost like I’m seeing new faces!

   

  

Oh shucks this cake was such a challenge, it’s so pretty I couldn’t bear to destroy it. Where should I position my knife?

Way too much fun seeing the guys posing with their heart-shaped sticks, especially when they clearly dislike pink. Evil!

   

   

Everyone else helped in dismantling the cake eventually, phew what a relief!

Rah Rah decided to do a sneak attack on me & we all ended up bursting in laughter!

Yes my hair’s gotten blonder than ever & I can’t describe how much I love it! I’d share with you how its kept in such good condition despite letting it go through so much trauma. Stay tuned!


Firmer & Fuller with Tokyo Bust Express

The road to growing up was not such a smooth-sailing one, just when all my friends were blessed with natural big bosoms, here I was, relying on a shelf full of push-up bras. I wouldn’t lie though, these babies do their jobs pretty damn well in giving you that desired oomph. Then again, once you’ve taken it off, you’re back to square one. I want to be able to look better in clothes all the time.

Don’t you wish that effect was permanent? Surgery was not an option because I was afraid of the complications it might bring about & the scarring too. If only if only there was an alternative that required no surgery…

A couple months later, I’m so thankful Tokyo Bust Express came into my life! Trust me, I was equally skeptical at the start, but having read so many good reviews on different blogs, I decided to give it a try. Let me take you through the process!

Here I am at their Square 2 (Novena) Branch. Knowing it’s my birthday, they surprised me with such pretty flowers. Why so sweet you guys!

During the consultation with your specialist, you’d have to change into a robe for a personalized bust analysis. I think what drew me to Tokyo Bust Express was the ingredients used in every treatment. They’re all natural & I can be rest assured that this is 100% risk free.

Upon proper measurement, I was told that my bosoms were not proportionate with one another, with my left being a B+ & my right being a B-. Goodness gracious! My specialist, Evonne could also feel that my mammary glands on the left were definitely more than the right. With the personalized treatment created for me, we’re aiming to create a fuller looking bust for the right side & also an overall lifting effect.

Here’s the list of treatments I’d be doing today.

1) Collagen Scrub

2) Bust Up Therapy

3) Phyto-Nutrient Therapy

4) Suction Therapy

________________________________________________________________________

Waiting patiently for the therapist for come into my cozy VIP room with flower petals aplenty. I felt like a little girl about to be transformed into a fair lady! I was ready to be pampered like I’ve never been before.

The treatment took about 2 hours, and in that duration I was in complete relaxation mode. Of course I can’t post all the pictures here! The lymphatic drainage massage could feel a lil’ awkward at the start, but once you get past that, it feels really good. There was no pain at all, but I felt tickled & ended up giggling like a school girl.

I was extremely satisfied with the after result, seeing how my right bust obviously looks fuller & more proportionate with my left bust. The equivalent of a push-up effect, except this was done without a wonder bra.

Thank you Tokyo Bust Express for the impeccable service & giving me on the best spa experience I’ve ever had. I never would have imagined that this was possible, all my worries were gone with the wind. Through one treatment, I was already able to see such good results, can you imagine what subsequent visits would do? Please lead me closer to the road of femininity!

Exclusive to my readers, Tokyo Bust is offering this to all you beautiful ladies!

Allure Beauty Signature Eyebrow Embroidery

Breakfast of all sorts. What sets your heart racing?

I’ve  tried a couple & I’m still a McDonald’s addict! It’s practically on my speed dial. I can always count on their Breakfast Deluxe Supreme to kickstart a long & strenuous day. Guess what?

New breakfast offerings are now available at McDonald’s & because of that I’m turning into an even bigger glutton! If there’s one thing I can’t resist, it’s the combination of hot fudge & hotcakes. Eat away folks!

Let’s see what I’m up to right after a hearty breakfast!

Time to redefine my faded embroidered brows! Two years later & I’m back to my trusty eyebrow therapist at Allure Beauty for a fabulous touch-up in preparation of all the upcoming glitz & glamour events.

The newly revamped Allure Beauty is looking so damn sleek! I like. Since  I had to be on the numbing cream for a while, perhaps I could entertain you with more pictures of me & my Santarina brows. Feeling super refreshed these days with the good sleep I’m getting!

My therapist Coco decided we should go for a Chocolate Brown shade this time round to better match my hair colour. As you can see, my previous brows have faded quite a bit, especially the front part, making it look a lil’ barren. I assure you there’s no pain, no bleeding & no swelling. You can see how the process is done HERE.

Voila we’re done with my Allure Signature Eyebrow treatment! Fret not, the therapists here would create a brow shape that brings out the best of your features, hence it differs with every individual. It’s done stroke by stroke with such precision for the most natural-looking set of brows ever best catered for your face. Check out these super closeup shots!

Allure Beauty is located at Tiong Bahru Plaza #05-04A. Call 6270 8845 to make an appointment!

Ended the night with the best Korean BBQ ever. I’m about to have a 3-hour long food tasting session in a bit, I know it sounds kinda crazy but I’m pretty sure it’d be tons of fun!


dance with me my loves

Birthday dinner at Dozo. Prior to this, I’ve had an oxygen infusion done & even got my puffy eyes rolled.

Thank you Beauti Instinct for making me look so incredibly radiant & flawless! I can’t imagine how my wedding preparation would be.

  

Thank you everyone for taking time off your busy schedules to make this day happen, I’m touched beyond words. And because it was my day, being fashionably late didn’t result in any black faces. Phew!

My dear friend Junhao even got me some anti-hangover tonic just in case I wake up feeling horrible the day after Better gulp it down fast before I head to the clubs! Nobody’s gonna let me off once I’m there!

Daniel was such a professional photographer as usual, he was so over overwhelmed with snapping photos after photos he barely ate! Drop me an email if you’d like his contact, his works are AMAZEBALLS.

  

  

We couldn’t stop gushing about how beautiful the food presentation was & when we finally got to eating it, we literally went to heaven. I’m definitely coming back for more next time!

Hello my dark-haired beauties, you’re both looking so drop dead gorgeous in those red sexy numbers I can’t take my eyes off you!

  

  

Damn I just can’t seem to stop munching on small bites even while talking. I thought it only happens in my sleep.

Unwrapping a couple of my presents in excitement while waiting for more food to be served!

 

  

Absolutely adore the Karen Walker sunnies! Even though pink wasn’t quite my colour in the past, I’ve slowly grown accustomed to loving it.

With my favourite secondary schoolmates! Can you imagine it’s been THAT long since we’ve known each other! I wonder how our teachers would react seeing us now? I used to get into all sorts of trouble back in those days & Clarissa was my accomplice!

Alright, let’s spread the love & take some group pictures!

Way too many photos & I haven’t even gone to the cake-cutting part. Promise you in two days, meanwhile I need to work on some blog advertorials!


let’s do this one more time

And so I just turned 25, hitting the mid-twenties wasn’t as scary as I thought. How time flies! I felt like a queen on my birthday last year, celebrated for an entire 5 days & ended up hungover in the most glamorous state at the end of it all. My dear friends fed me like a premium cow only to drench me in alcohol afterwards. It’s finally time to gather with the loved ones again this year, hurray! And to think I forgot that pictures of last year’s celebration were left in the closet, oops my bad.

I warn you though, this post is so image-heavy it’s gonna be hard to not drool over your keyboards.

Birthday treat at Hyang To Gol with my primary school BFF. This woman’s probably the only one who knows me inside out, especially when I’m up to no good!

Dinner at The Cut. Nothing keeps me happier than a plate of True Japanese Wagyu Beef done Medium Rare. I know my diet scares you, but once you’ve turned into a true blue carnivore, there’s no going back.

Counting down to the strike of midnight to a new chapter! Thanks for the unexpected surprise, it was the best ever!

Dinner at Guy Savoy.

Each dish that’s served here tasted as good as it looked. Oh boy I’m starting to feel hungry all over again!

Making room for dessert is a top priority for me! Sometimes, when the presentation gets overly beautiful, I feel like a sinner savouring it!

Dinner with my almost twin-sister Rah Rah. I’m about to get very smashed after we’re done, it’s all in preparation for some nasty birthday shots!

Loving how the entire table is flooded with food I can’t quite decide where to start. Oh boy you people spoil me so bad on my birthday!

I’ve never been more ready to embrace the crazy night! Bring on the patron, I fear you not. An hour later, I was drunk like a cow at Pangaea. I was up above the sofa barefoot & in an entire different world altogether.

Sorry it’s not possible for me to fit all in one post, it’s gonna take forever to load. Here’s a sneak peek though!

I’d continue with the final birthday dinner & party installment in the next post. Have a great weekend everyone! It’s party time!
