These days, finding an experienced and trustworthy facial salon is as difficult as breaking a coconut with your bare hands. I've also become rather prudent with my choice of spas and treatments. I believe most of you will know why.
I've visited a few spas in the past few months and have been pretty pleased with their services and adherence to good hygiene practices. I think the best facial option now is to stick to your guns and only go to spas that you've patronized and enjoyed.
Here's one that I've visited and re-visited - Spa Symphony. It's highly recommended by top beauty brands and magazines too. Click to read about my experience. :)
Recently, I was introduced to a beauty brand that is committed to offer makeup that is free of parabens, SLES, mineral oil and allergenic fragrances. Yay!
And here's to a double yay - they are against animal testing too! The freshness and potency of their products are maintained using anti-microbial spices and herbs such as Wasabi, Radish and Ginger to replace harmful preservatives and chemicals.
It is possibly the greatest thing since sliced bread. Click to read all about it!
I've been nominated as a finalist in the Singapore Blog Awards'(SBA) Beauty and Vlog categories! *prances around*
As mentioned in my Facebook posts, I wouldn't have been able produce those photos and videos, write the reviews, maintain a beauty encyclopedia and get my craft on without your unwavering love (e.g. emails, FB likes and the increasing views).
And of course, the biggest and sloppiest kisses go to my supportive family who've partaken in all my blog activites i.e. Spa parties, vote contests and this latest video I made for the SBA's vlog contest (see above). :D

I've officially crossed the 'late 20s' mark a few weeks ago which also means the red alert for wrinkles is now full on.
Anti-aging creams are no longer optional but mandatory in my beauty regimen. *shrieks*
However, I have to be really mindful with this one as my skin is not the most receptive to rich creams and serums. These products tend to suffocate the skin, causing congestion and zits.
I need something naturally formulated, that is free of mineral oil, glycol, parabens, etc. And the great news is - I think I may have found the best anti-aging candidate for my skin at the recent Origins Blogger Workshop.

Top Japanese skincare brand, V 10 Plus just held their very first bloggers event last month and my beauty encyclopedia, Honeyz Cube was granted the great opportunity of celebrating this significant milestone as their marketing partner. Whee!
The best part was - not only was I there for work (inviting and hosting the bloggers), I also got to enjoy a delectable spread of pastries, an invigorating V10 Plus facial and a bag of V 10 Plus goodies. :D
Last week, I visited London and Paris - the fashion lands that inarguably never fail to produce ubiquitous but timeless fashion trends.
And since I'm in the ultimate fashion hub, I can't let my inner fashionista down. I brought at least 20 different apparels - jackets, coats, skirts, pants and tops to make sure I always look modish and camera-ready. Haha!
And as title of the blog suggests, this post archives some of my most favorite outfits from the trip. Now click for the fashion rundown!
