Sneaker girl.

November 25, 2015

I’m a sneaker girl at heart though I wear heels pretty often. If you follow me on SnapChat, you’ll notice that I wear sneakers a lot more on my “off-days”. If I had to choose between a pair of branded heels and branded sneakers, I’ll pick the latter fo sure! So I’ve decided to dedicate one whole post to my dear sneakers. Here are some that I really love (I own some, though most of them are still on my wish list hah)

1. Valentino – Open Sneakers

I’ve been wanting this for the longest time so it’s a well-deserving first on the list.

2. Miu Miu – Glitter sneakers & Miu Miu Crystal cap toe sneakers

Okay, this is a tough fight with the Valentino pair. I like it as much but it’s just different? I can totes see myself pairing the Miu Miu ones with basics e v e r y d a y. Just look at the blings!

3. Adidas – Superstar

I just bought this few weeks back and I love it to death. Matches everything in my closet. Adidas over Nike now, I say.

4. Adidas – Stan Smith in navy blue

Best buy of 2014! It’s super versatile and comfortable. I actually really like it when guys wear the high cut version.

8. Thom Browne Tennis shoes

Okay I know it kinda looks like Converse but I’m just a sucker for Thom browne label. Guys in Thom Browne suits, sexy as hell. Girls in Thom Browne, damn~~~

All pictures taken from Google!

Okay this is my list of favourite sneakers. Sorry if you were expecting fly knits or like sportier stuff hahaha.
Hopefully I can get 1 or 2 pairs more before this year end. Hope you girls enjoyed this post!

Christmas looks with Lancôme!

October 11, 2015

Christmas is around the corner and it’s my ultimate favourite time of the year! All the christmas dinners, turkeys, log cakes, red wine, christmas presents and carols! I’ve always loved this time of the year cos not only does it spell christmas, it also means lots of parties and travelling, and I want to look my best! Hence, I gave Lancôme Youth Activating Facial Treatment a shot at their new La Maison Lancôme (House of Lancôme) at Capitol Piazza.

DSC05710DSC05664 DSC05666 DSC05670 DSC05707 DSC05709

It was a 90 minute session where my skin was pampered by Lancôme’s exquisite and carefully curated skin solutions. The thoughtful therapist started with a de-stressing massage to help calm down my nerves and mind so I’ll be in tip top condition for the facial. I fell asleep almost immediately cos it was so comfortable and it was definitely a good break from the hectic lifestyle.

The boutique, Lancôme’s 1st in Singapore, is very inviting and definitely feels very luxurious. The staff were super friendly and helpful so I really enjoyed the overall experience. Not to mention, the whole place was filled with make up so it was fun to hang around and dabble with them after the facial treatment!
DSC05712 DSC05719After the facial, my skin felt really supple and to my surprise, it looked really radiant even without any make up on! My skin usually looks very dull without make up but for the first time, it was radiant and very hydrated. Felt like the clock turned back hahah.
Here’s so proof for you! No make-up at all.

DSC05730These are all the products used during the facial! Can I just say they smell HEAVENLY??? It has this subtle rose smell and I’m a sucker for anything that smells rose-like.DSC05722DSC05723DSC05716

Since Christmas is approaching, I might as well try a Christmas look right? Their friendly Boutique Manager, Elyse, gave me a wonderful makeover after the facial with a customized look suitable for any Christmas party! So exciting!DSC05743 DSC05748 DSC05757

She created a smoky eye look for me using this limited edition L’Absolu eyeshadow palette!DSC05740DSC05762 DSC05764 DSC05769

And voila, this is my completed Christmas party look courtesy of Lancôme!DSC05780 DSC05783 DSC05784

I really like the look and I definitely wanna try recreating this look by myself with the L’Absolu eyeshadow palette! I hardly do full lips and smoky eyes together and I think this might be a good change if I wanna stand out more (:DSC05788 DSC05795 DSC05805
