ORCHARD CENTRAL X FALL FASHION

When it comes to my fashion choices, I love unique & quirky piece hence ORCHARD CENTRAL has always been one of my favorite go-to malls for the independent labels by local designers. And guess what? ORCHARD CENTRAL is currently having their fall fashion campaign for the month of OCTOBER, featuring the exciting latest fall collections from tenants such as SABRINAGOH, THE RECKLESS SHOP, PLEATATION and SANS & SANS. Can you picture how stoked I was when they approached me to select a couple of my favorites from their fall collections!

//SANS & SANS//

Don’t I look incredibly feminine in this ensemble? My folks will definitely give the stamp of approval. It’s a pity I don’t have a 9-5 job anymore or I’d be parading this all around the office. It’s not often that I do the sweet-girl look & I must say I’m digging it!

Had such a tough time picking a favorite here when every piece screams my style (you know how colorful my personality is), but eventually I settled with these. Androgynous, feminine & cute, I LOVE THEM ALL!

//PLEATATION//

I really like this label for its intricate pleating, it really gives me the ISSEY MIYAKE vibe! Plus, their apparels are so versatile you can wear it in many different ways. Loving how resort-chic their maxis are & in all the beautiful prints, you’re bound to find one to your liking. Wear them with your bralets (I should have worn white) or bikinis & you’d be turning heads! Their clutches are also must-haves, all pleated too & comes in an assortment of colors.

Alright I confess, the minute I stepped in, it felt like home. Running around like an overgrown kid was quite a sight, oops! Oh boy the things I do when I get overly excited! I’d let the pictures do all the talking instead & you’d get what I mean.

BEAUTY EXPRESS PERPETUA EYEBROW

Constantly in the seek for perfection, my face is not quite natural-beauty ready without a set of perfect-looking eyebrows. Now that I’ve gotten eyelash extensions, it’s about time I did something about those unkempt brows. Yes I’d rather have that 30 minutes of extra sleep everyday than having to painstakingly sculpt my brows for 365 days.

A friend of mine had perfect brows 24/7 & secretly, I was a lil’ green with envy. I decided to check out BEAUTY EXPRESS without hesitation to get my PERPETUA EYEBROW CREATION done!

BEAUTY EXPRESS INTERNATIONAL was established in 1988 by founder, PHYLLIS TAN. Having been one of the pioneers in the beauty industry, she’s achieved the 2010 SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEUR AWARD. Having said that, I’m pretty confident that I’m in good hands! Let’s get started!

Initially, I wanted to get straight brows done for a youthful look but decided to go with a slight arch instead to look more feminine. Oh my fickle mind! Then again, doing a slight arch makes more sense too, if I ever decide to change up the look, I could just fill up the gap below with brow pencil. Simple like that!

//PERPETUA EYEBROW CREATION PROCESS//

Felt super pampered to have the founder herself work on my brows! Thank you PHYLLIS for being so gentle with me! Pain-factor wise, I would rate it 2/10. It’s really bearable, but if you’re afraid of discomfort, you can always put on the numbing cream slightly longer.

I really like how it turned out! So glad I went along with the dark brown colour! It’s a perfect fit for my face! Thank you so much PHYLLIS!

Managed to get a couple of pictures with the founder – PHYLLIS TAN. I absolutely adore her exuberant personality!

//5 DAYS AFTER//

So here’s how my brows look 3 days later. It’s starting to flake & I can’t wait for it to look natural! The after-care really helps speed up the healing!

PS, I’ve also been doing SLIMMING TREATMENT with BEAUTY EXPRESS & even friends of mine have noticed the difference. I know you’re probably wondering with that skinny frame of mine, what nonsense is this? Oh well, I’m really good at covering up my flaws for years & that’s the reason why I don’t frequent the beaches. Let the truth reveal itself on the next post, please don’t cringe at the sight of my cellulite!

BEAUTY EXPRESS is located at 1 GOLDHILL PLAZA, #01-29. To make an appointment or any enquiries, please call 6734 8998.

Yes I heard you, my never-ending obsession for clothes has left me no choice but to live with the motto : In with the new, out with the old. I’d be clearing my never worn before clothes & if you must know, I don’t have the habit of repeating the same outfit twice, so yes those must go too! There’d be shoes, accessories & bags too. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOVE $20!

Popped by SALON LE POINT recently on two separate occasions to shower some TLC to those neglected hair of mine. Oh boy I can be so unkempt at times, you really have no idea! So thankful for the fact that my stylist KEVIN KOOL always slots me in even if I call him at the eleventh hour. When it comes to matters of the hair, he’s 100% dedicated & I really trust him to tease my hair any way he desires.

Can’t get over how well this treatment works for my hair & it smells so freaking good! The smoothness lasts for 2 weeks at least! In fact, I realize these days my hair is in a better state than the past. I no longer wake up with hair looking like a lion’s mane. It’s so much more manageable!

 Believe me I was apprehensive at the start when KEVIN told me I was getting black highlights this time round, but after seeing the end result, I must say I am very pleased! The black was really subtle & not harsh in any way I imagined it to have turned out. Finished off the look with some creative styling!

BEAUTI INSTINCT X AHA CRANBERRY

And so, my crazy jet-setting behavior begins once again since it’s nearing year-end. I wouldn’t say my skin is in a bad state but I’d want it to be even better. Breakouts have somewhat been kept under control thanks to the many effective treatments I’ve undergone with BEAUTI INSTINCT over the years. You name it, I’ve done it!

Right now, my main focus is to have a BRIGHTER & RADIANT COMPLEXION. A month back, I tried out the AHA CRANBERRY MICRODERMABRASION TREATMENT for the first time. LOVED IT SO MUCH I’m back for a second time just a couple of days back to prep for my upcoming trip!

This treatment aids in smoothing out fine lines while refining skin texture. It’s a highly concentrated treatment that contains CRANBERRY OIL, EXFOLIATING PARTICLES, BLACKCURRANT & BILBERRY AHA, GLYCOLIC ACID, RASPBERRY EXTRACT, SOYA PHOSPHOLIPIDS & SHEA BUTTER. All these goodness massaged into your fatigued skin by the skillful therapists, it’s no wonder I go into deep slumber during the treatment.

TADAH! This is how my skin looks right after the treatment! It’s all about the radiance baby! No need for concealer or foundation, just put on a thin layer of sunblock & I’m ready to go!
