ACORISM X SPATHE PUBLIC HOUSE

When it comes to shopping, I think there’s no need to guess who does it best! Despite the ever-expanding wardrobe, it hasn’t stopped me from wanting more & more. Who can resist beautiful-looking clothes?

I recently did a shoot for this new kid on the block – ACORISM. Midway through the shoot, I already wanted to take everything on set home! Pretty accessories included. #confessionsofashopaholic

But seriously, I took a liking to so many of their clothes it was a nerve-wrecking situation to decide which pieces to keep! Thank you Coco for dressing me in demure pieces too, I felt like a different person altogether but it was so much fun!

I love how this top puts you in the mood to get dressed instantly. Despite bearing such loud prints, it’s really versatile & easy to wear. But since I’m feeling a lil’ vain these days, I decided to pair it with a metallic red skirt to create a more glam look!

Every girl needs a cute-looking knit to keep herself in style & stay warm at the same time! It’s definitely a staple piece. In fact, I’m so obsessed with this piece so much I might have broken my rule of ‘never wearing a piece of clothing more than once’.

It’s too adorable, I just couldn’t resist. On days where you’re feeling lazy, throw on a pair of shorts + booties & trust me you’d still be looking tres tres chic!

So excited for tomorrow’s countdown, can’t believe how fast time flies! Time to tuck into bed earlier today, goodnight world!


THE KING LOUIS X MERRY XMAS

This X’mas season’s the best time to feast! Being the meat eater that I am, no place feels more like home than The King Louis Grill & Bar. Having such a good experience previously here, I’m back once again! Together with my crazy Korean girl, we’re going to gobble up the food like there’s no tomorrow. Let’s go!

Atwell’s such a good host each time we’re here & because we’re having such a good time, we tend to over-order. But never once have we contributed to food wastage! We lick out platters clean just like little kitties.

CIMG5162b

Another must-have is the Banana Bacon Bites appetizer, sounds kinda peculiar but tastes phenomenal!

CIMG5130b

CIMG5131b

I can never get enough of the Premium BBQ Back Ribs, so juicy & rich in flavour I died & went to heaven.

CIMG5145b

We love the festive season because it’s not a sin to eat excessively! Never mind if we’re stuck to our seats rubbing our ever-growing bellies. All in the name of yummy food!

The King Louis Grill & Bar is located at 1 Harbourfront Walk, #03-07A, Vivo City.

I know how some days you’re so comfortable being a couch potato but you have a couple of friends over. So done with the usual fast food deliveries. Getting a lil’ boring I know! Guess what? The King Louis Grill & Bar delivers right to your doorstep till 5th January 2013. House party anyone?

Decided to have a Christmas Mini Gathering with the girls at home.

HAIR VISUALS X CAT CORA

Oh yes it’s sad that I’ve officially broken up with my blonde/light hair. Think you’d have noticed if you’ve followed me on Instagram. It was good while it lasted, but it’s too much of a pain & I’m all ready to try out a complete transformation.

Time to do a 360-degrees change & go dark! Off to Hair Visuals to meet up with my new hairstylist extraordinaire – Kevin Kool !

CIMG3704b

CIMG3711b

CIMG3717b

So not a morning person as you can see, all weary-eyed hence the eye mask. Compulsory Agri morning-routine, everyday for 365 days!

CIMG3644b

Never imagined one day I’d bid light hair goodbye, it’s been years since I’ve had light brown even. All the colours I did throughout the years required so much bleaching & my hair ends are completely fried. But I’m pretty sure with Kevin’s care, it’d be restored to tip top condition in no time!

CIMG3706b

CIMG3719b

CIMG3646b

Prior to checking out Hair Visuals, I’ve heard so much raves about Kevin & seen how he’s revived a couple of my friends hair. From grass-like to hair commercial standard, damn! Come on Kevin, work your magic on me! Ooh & did I also mention how cozy this place is? I feel pampered like a princess!

CIMG3650b

CIMG3661b

CIMG3677b

Right after colour & a personalized treatment suited for my hair type, this is how my hair looks! Oh what a drastic change, I’m so impressed with the final result. Wait till you feel my hair – so silky smooth it’s unreal.

Plus, I really love how dark hair better accentuates my features. Think I’d be stuck with dark hair for a while now, but wait! Dark hair does not mean boring, I’m still pretty much crazy in a subdued way.

CIMG3695b

Look at the surprise Kevin did for the bottom part. Genius or what?

CIMG3700b  CIMG3691b

Be prepared for the countless camwhoring pictures, don’t say I didn’t warn you! This is what HAPPY HAIR DAY feels like. Yay!

CIMG3686b

CIMG3681b

My hair is now looking so fine & looks so full! I can’t thank Kevin enough, he’s definitely made my day! Looking forward to my next appointment to retouch my colour & get another treatment done.

FREIA MEDICAL AESTHETICS

Remember the last time I spoke about Freia Medical Aesthetics so fondly? It’s been a couple of months now & I’ve gone back for even more rejuvenating treatments seeking for skin perfection with Dr Harold Ma.

Comparing how my skin from my first visit to how it is today, I’m extremely happy I could roll out of bed not looking like a mess in front of the mirror. Funny how in the past, I’d neglect my skin & rely on makeup to erase my flaws temporarily. Today as my age increases each year, I want skin that’s dewy & clear without the assistance of face paint. Yeah aging sucks!

If you haven’t already known, my enlarged pores have been the bane of my existence & I would do anything & everything to get rid of them. I’ve tried so many treatments targeted at this problem area but the effects are just temporary until Freia Medical Aesthetics came along.

before     after

One of my highly-raved treatments at Freia Medical Aesthetics would be the combination of the Medlite Laser Toning & the Hydra Facial. My pores have definitely shrunk & it has definitely made makeup application a whole lot easier. Not forgetting the fact that my skin is now radiant all week long despite my never-ending late nights & poor diet. I know that’s not an excuse, but really this is one miraculous treatment. Even hollywood celebs swear by it!

I can’t thank Dr Harold Ma enough for giving me the complexion I’ve always dreamed of. He’s been nothing but patient throughout the whole time despite my train of questions. I was having doubts about the laser at first, thinking it might dehydrate my skin but clearly I was wrong. Yes I am one fussy girl to please but Dr Harold Ma has left me grinning from ear to ear. My naked face can now see the light without a tinge of fear.

My experience with Freia Medical Aesthetics is such an amazing one & I wake up to better skin each day. Because I’m such a strong believer in this treatment, I have discussed with Dr Harold Ma to let my readers have a feel of the treatment.

I would like to share this procedure with all my readers & via Beauti5me.com , we have created a special deal for interested parties to enjoy. Do email deals@beauti5me.com & quote ‘Agri Velt’s Secrets to Great Skin’ to check out this special deal!


MILLY’S X KOREAN BBQ

Back at Milly’s to get a new set of nails done! I always have a headache choosing my base colour & even harder to pick what design I want.

Check out the wide array of selection, how am I supposed to pick seriously? But I eventually settled for a beautiful lilac. Hell yeah I’m in a demure phase at the moment, putting my edgy behaviour on hold.

It’s funny how I’ve patronized this Korean BBQ place on Tanjong Pagar Road so many times but I always don’t remember the name of it! The meat here is so juicy & the boss is always SO NICE to use!

Lost count of the times we showed up here in a drunken state & insisted they extended their operating hours & they really did!

CIMG6773b

Full & satisfied. When it comes to meat, I can’t stop & I won’t stop!

FULLHOUSE SIGNATURE X WAN HE LOU

Last week was all about the food hunting. Let me share with you two places I visited recently! View at your own risk & don’t hate me if your tummy starts growling.

I’ve always been quite a fan of themed-restaurants, imagine how excited I was to finally check out Fullhouse Signature after hearing so much raves about this place. My lucky date for the evening was the sweetie-pie Naomi!

One phrase best describes the restaurant – sweetness in abundance.

To fit to the theme of the restaurant, I got dressed in my lovely Clementine Floral Dress from ClubCouture. I still can’t get used to seeing myself looking this demure but it’s a good look once in awhile. You should have seen Naomi’s face. My usual get-up is far from sweet, but totday even my shoes give me the thumbs up!

Let’s take a look at some of the dishes we had! Yes my appetite is like a raging lioness, don’t judge me.

Cream of Forest Mushroom

Italian Meatball (MUST TRY!)

Yes, eat away in peace Agri for one dares snatch a piece of meat from you!

Braised Lamb Shank (MUST TRY!)

Organic Beef Tenderloin (MUST TRY!)

Grilled Chicken Chop with Raisin Black Pepper Sauce (MUST TRY!)

CIMG5778b

It’d be such a shame if you don’t stay on after your meals to do some camwhoring in the restaurant. The place is so beautiful every corner is literally a photo booth.

Making room for desserts as usual, what to do? I am such a pig seriously.

***************

Next up, chanced upon this restaurant while driving around randomly in search for Hairy Crabs.

Boy was I glad to check the place out! The food is so yummy beyond words & the pricing is extremely reasonable. I’ve gone back 5 times ever since. True story.

Their signature is the Lobster Porridge. Despite being highly allergic to seafood, I had to have it anyway. SIMPLY ORGASMIC. See the sacrifices I make just for life’s greatest sins.

Another reason that keeps me from coming back despite the place being so inaccessible from my place is the Authentic Shanghai Hairy Crab. This hungry monster right here eats not just one or two, but eight at one go. SO DELICIOUS I WENT TO HEAVEN!

CIMG3966b

CIMG3981b  CIMG3980b

See what a messy eater I really am! Friends of mine would know that when I’m eating any type of crabs, I’m totally disconnected from the world. I need to make sure each spot is taken care off & no flesh is left behind. Damn this girl takes her food so seriously!
