AC On Tour Powder Contouring & Hightlighting Palette (Medium)
Silly me thought I became tanner so I chose the Medium shade contour & highlighting palette from Laycy. Turns out it's way too dark for me :( Anyone wants to try this out? Let me know! I'd be more than happy to pass this on to someone who uses it.

*RECOMMENDED* Velourlips Matte Lip Cream (Hon-O-Loo-Loo)
What really got me was their Velourlips Matte Lip Cream - IT IS SUCH A DREAM. It stayed on throughout my meal with no touchups??? How many lip creams can actually do that??? Despite being matte, it is NOT drying AT ALL. AND it's only priced at $12.90. WHAT. A. STEAL.

Simply Define Eyebrow Pencil (Dark Brown)
Been using it for a week. I love how to colour is so close to my brow shade BUT I honestly dislike the fact that I have to sharpen the pencil every now and then. Please make it in retractable pencils next time, BeautyUK!!!

Reveal A Secret - Black Magic Blackheads Clearing Gel

Tuesday, March 28, 2017
Reveal A Secret is a home-grown skincare brand. The Black Magic Blackheads Clearing Gel is their first product - It is created to achieve and uncover smooth, radiant & youthful complexion like no other. Formulated with a unique concoction, the gel is made from natural plant-based active ingredients that aim to improve one’s skin when it is used as part of the daily skincare regime. The continued usage of this product promises to get rid of all the little blackheads and deliver a beautiful and clear complexion. 

Witch Hazel extract, a key ingredient in Black Magic and native to Northern America, is proven to possess countless benefits for the skin such as getting rid of oil and impurities, help ease redness and irritation. Other benefitting ingredients such as Tea Tree Oil and Lemon extract are added into the mix to soothe and minimise pores size. This unique blend also acts as a natural exfoliant that gently eliminates and prevents blackheads and whiteheads from appearing again, giving you the magical confidence and glow of a fresh new face.

What I love about this product is that unlike other blackhead removal methods, where you have to remove them after a certain period of time, all I have to do is slap this gel onto my nose and viola! No removal needed at all so I can just slap it on a go to bed!

RAS Black Magic blackheads clearing gel is available at ALL Sa Sa outlets in Singapore, RAS’ Facebook page, as well as their online store which ships worldwide.

Sucremor - All-Natural Sugaring Massage Pack

Monday, March 27, 2017

Sucremor's All-Natural Sugaring Massage Pack comes in 5 different flavours - HAKKA, Citrus, Vanilla, Lavender & Rosemary. My top 2 favourites are without a doubt the Lavender & Rosemary. Available in 3 sizes, 35g, 100g & 300g.

First online camera rental company in Singapore - Rent Something Leh

Sunday, March 26, 2017
There are many camera rental shops in Singapore, however, Rent Something Leh is the FIRST ONLINE camera rental company registered in Singapore. Compared to other rental companies, Rent Something Leh is definitely way more affordable. (I supposed they're more affordable since they don't have a standalone shop which saves em' money on rental as well - Win win situation fo' all of us!) 

Their camera rentals range from Gopros, drones, DJI Osmo, Canon DSLRs, Nikon DSLRs, Sony cameras, camera accessories, 360 degree cameras, and even instant portable photo printer rental!

It is also super effortless to rent from them - All you have to do is fill out a form??? Read more on how to rent here: https://www.rentsomethingleh.com/how-to-rent

OH! And did I mention that with just a small fee, they can even deliver the camera right to your doorstep! Talk about convenience.

Mad thankful to Rent Something Leh for this experience, there's so many other stuff the bf and I can't wait to try out the next time we rent from em' again!

Here's one of my favourite shots, shot by @gex_k using their Canon 5D Mark III, 24mm f1.4.

Courage

Saturday, March 25, 2017

You give me more courage than anyone I've ever known. I'd skydive off a plane if I knew you'd be there beside me. That's what life is about, it's those moments when you feel entirely carefree like nothing can touch you. It's those moments that make the hard parts worth it. Those moments when I'm... with you.

10% OFF ANY OUTLET @ iDARTS SINGAPORE!

Monday, March 20, 2017
Okay, now that I've got your attention where should I start?

So last week I actually checked in at iDarts Halo for the first time ever.
After which, I received lotsa texts from my friend's going like 
'YOU GOT PLAY DARTS ONE MEH?' 
'YOU KNOW HOW TO PLAY DARTS AH?'

In all honesty, I've fiddled with darts a couple of times before but I've never really played it or finished an entire game myself. Not to mention, grasp the concept of it cos well... No one taught me la. 

I was so glad when I found out that iDarts has in-house darts instructors in ALL their outlets islandwide that teach you for FREE? WHAT??? Got so good one ah? Go there play darts still got free instructor??? Plus the instructor I saw really quite chai one.

So yes. There, I was taught how to play darts the proper way. And really FREE one leh!!!
Check me out lookin' lika pro here - Most of the time my darts flew off the board, but still... I'm getting there! I'm sure of it!

Truth be told, this game is a tad addictive. You can play it alone, online, with people from ALL OVER THE WORLD - Or you can play it together with your friends - in teams (Which was what I did). 

I understand that there are tons of other bars out there with DARTSLIVE2 machines, but did you know that iDarts is the FIRST sportbar in Asia with DARTSLIVE2 machines. Their DARTSLIVE2 machines also has Count Up Challenge whereby you can play and WIN freebies such as your very own DARTSLIVE2 card & a set of darts! All you have to do is hit 400 points (For ladies) & 450 points (For guys) - Only VALID for newbies*

Moving on, a couple of days after learning the game I paid a visit to their other outlet, iDarts Fame2, located in SAFRA Jurong. Literally took me two years to get there from my place. Kiddin' - Or am I? Thank GOD there are 6 outlets all over Singapore so I don't always hafta travel all the way to the West.
Despite the long trip to Jurong, I was really happy to finally be able to spend time with all my OLD friends. Like old... as in... Cos they're all really old... Oops. Hehe. 
There's so much more for me to ramble on about but I know most of you are just here for the discount code, so wait no further & mention 'iDartsAY' for 10% off your total bill with NO MIN SPENDING.
*ONLY valid from 21st March 2017 - 20th April 2017*

Jurong Bird Park - DIY Flashcard

Thursday, March 16, 2017
Aary's been bugging us to bring her to the Bird Park for quite some time so we finally decided to take her there since we had the time. I thought that it was SO appropriate for https://www.diyflashcard.com/ to send over this shirt for her just in time for our trip to the bird park! 

https://www.diyflashcard.com/ is a start up company based in Singapore which continously promotes a line of technology related products for kids in a fun and engaging way. Their products range from Augmented Reality Flashcards, books & t-shirts (like the one you see on Aary above). 

Their line of Curiousity Wear 4D T-shirts are where fashion advances to the next level of innovation with Augmented Reality Technology - Creating the possibility of live interaction with various images! Even I, was so stoked and amused to play with em'. 

Basically, the t-shirts look like normal t-shirts, but once you scan the images on the t-shirt under the camera of your smart device (with an app) - VIOLA! You can witness the images come to live on screen (See videos below).
Super fun to play with and Aary loves it. As you can see in the video, she kept wanting to take pictures of her birds. LOL.

Can I also add that their entire clothing line is enhanced with UV PROTECTION, UPF 50+?!?!
Say what?!

Toxic Love - Part 1

Thursday, March 9, 2017
"Somewhere, things must be beautiful and vivid. Somewhere else, life has to be beautiful and vivid and rich. Not like this muted palette -a pale blue bedroom, washed out sunny sky, dull green yellow brown of the fields. Here, I know ever twist of every road, every blade of grass, every face in this town, and I am suffocating."

Tuesday, March 7, 2017
I've been staring at this blank screen for the past half an hour with countless of thoughts in my head not knowing how to put them into words. As usual. This has happened numerous times the past couple of days. I've been meaning to write something, my thoughts, feelings, and to just keep this space updated but I never seem to be able to get down to it. 

And now here I am.

Still... 
stuck. 

Ha ha.

All in all, this year has been absolutely astonishing so far and I can't wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for me.

Till then...
... when I can think of the right words to say.

That's what life is about. Those moments when you feel entirely carefree, like nothing can touch you. It’s those moments that make the hard parts so worth it. It's moments like that that make this heartache bearable. I know it'll pass – my moments will come.

Korea 2017 (Day 4) - Gangnam

Sunday, March 5, 2017
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson

In another time

Friday, March 3, 2017
I don't know how you are so familiar to me — or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before — in another time, a different place, some other existence.
