REVEAL : Fresh Beginnings Feb 2015 Bellabox




Before we start this post, can i just express how much i love this pack of premium green tea?😍👍 if you’re a fan of matcha green tea, this refreshing antioxidant goodness will not disappoint! Thank you Bellabox for including this in! 









This lip colour matched really well with my Chinese New Year Cheong Sam! ❤️ The peppermint taste was pleasantly unexpected too :) Loves!



 To be honest, I wasnt really a fan of these samples :(  Goodal has a great oil infused cleanser which I highly reccommend!



Anything from Curel doesnt break me out, so I’m not complaining here with these babies :) Summertime hurts my fair skin :( Always good to stock up on quality sunblocks!



I’ve heard quite a lot about this product and am very interested to try this. Full sized too! Bellabox has been really generous to include two full sized items in the Feb Box! 

Overall, I like the whole concept of this box as it preps me for the cheery Spring time!

What’s New for 2015
Infuusa listened to what their customers said:
1. Increase the flavour of each sachet
2. Introduce new flavours
3. Increase sweetness, but keep the low calorie benefits.
  • All Infuusa sachets are 4.5g, up from 3g in 2014 – That’s 50% more ingredients than before

Summer Peach is their new flavor for 2015! It is a metabolism boosting infusion that is mildly
caffeinated. Tastes like smooth black tea infused with the juicy flavor of peaches. Infuusa added Stevia leaf to the sachets for a touch of zero calorie sweetness. Stevia is safe sugar substitute that is commonly found in local super markets. They have opted for the most natural version, the leaf itself.
It is also mildly caffeinated, letting you rev your metabolism and burn more calories after your workout! Just pop a sachet into a bottle, give it a good shake, and let the flavours infuse naturally within minutes.
Each pack contains 10 sachets.

My Review:

I personally drink about 3 litres of water a day to keep my skin and overall health in check. As an avid tea lover, I was naturally very excited to have been approached by Infuusa to review their newly improved infusions! More so because they’re now made to taste sweeter and more flavourful! It delights me to see local entrepreneurs coming up with such awesome products! Not only do these teas taste amazing, they are at 0kcal or at 7kcal per 500ml serving. Per sachet is to be steeped in 500ml of cold water. I have tried up to 800ml of water and it still tastes refreshingly sweet. To me, I see Infuusa as one of my everyday go-to choice of tea because it’s packed with vitamins and tastes great. I’ve noticed a more glowy complexion after drinking these teas regularly. Vitamin goodness and healthy hydration levels showed up in my skin ^^ I’ve definitely noticed a happier me when I’m drinking water that tastes good and is indeed good for my body. Anyone who knows me well will know that I am an extremely fussy eater and that I’m pretty difficult to please even with beverages. Infuusa has earned my stamp of approval for my beverage of choice! :) I even bought the huge packs to refill my beverage pantry stash at home!~

IMG_2587

The 786 square foot store adopts a private-label strategy – Tokyo Star Optical produces their own brand of eyewear. Tokyo Star Optical offers 3 fixed package prices – $96, $126 and $156 – includes imported frames and Tokyo aspheric lens. With an extensive range of over 1,200 distinctive Tokyo style elements to choose from, the optical glasses are specially crafted for the avid Tokyo style followers, breathing new life with every frames. Not only are they available in an array of styles, they are also lightweight, with the lightest being a mere 6.5 grams.

Adopting a 3-step process, customers are able to get their glasses with a fast processing time of 15 minutes. It begins when the customers choose their desired frame, followed by the lens and lastly, the case.

The eyewear advisors guides customers through every step of the process – selecting eyewear that is most suitable to the occasion, meeting customers’ needs and functionality, enhancing their strong features, complementing their overall look and style preference, and lastly comfort and fit.

My Review:

I LOVED the lightweight frames so much! They look effortlessly chic when worn and are definitely a joy to wear since each frame only weighs merely 7grams! I already knew my prescription degree so once I’d gotten my frames chosen, some simple measurements were taken and then in just 8 minutes (yup, i timed them!), I had my new spectacles!

IMG_2585

IMG_2589

There’s a yellow tint to the lenses as I got the ones that reflect blue light from electronic devices. It’s said to protect my eyes in the long run and after 2 weeks of trial, I must say that these lenses did help protect my eyes as I’m no longer having much of an issue with horrible bloodshot eyes after facing my laptop and iPhone for hours. The tint does show up a little in photos but I’d rather look a little odd than to have a pair of strained, tired eyes :)

IMG_2767

Thes spectacles are my all-time favourite and I’m so glad to have gotten them! Thank you Tokyo Star Optical for these amazingly comfortable pair of spectacles! I now look forward to wearing my spectacles everyday! :)

Tokyo Star Optical is located at 1 Raffles Link, #B1-31 CityLink Mall, Singapore 039393 and is open daily from 11am to 9pm. Tel: (+65) 6532 0071

REVIEW: Eyelash Extensions done At Browtisan by Coco!


IMG_2274

 

I dropped by Browtisan by Coco to get my eyelash extensions done last week! It’s located at Delfi Orchard, right along where Shaw is along Orchard Road :) Very accessible and convenient for working adults! :) You may check out their Facebook page here :) https://www.facebook.com/browtisan

 

IMG_2138

These are my lashes before the lash extensions~ I do have long lashes but as with many asian girls alike, I have the same issues with my lashes – lack of volume and fullness of the lashes. So, I opted for 300-320 lashes for the extensions, which would give me a pair of fluttery full lashes that increase in length from the inner corners of the lash line to the outer corners.

IMG_2161

IMG_2160

IMG_2232

 

They look natural right? :) These are my lashes after 8 days. I’m not the most meticulous person when it comes to eyelash extension after care, so having a very experienced beauty technician was necessary. I was attended to by Coco, the owner of Browtisan, herself and I’ve never loved the look of my lashes more! It’s soft to the touch yet doesn’t fall off as rapidly as with other eyelash extensions that I’ve tried before. The glue didn’t make my eyes itch or red at all! Coco uses a special pair of surgeon eyewear to magnify her span of vision of her clients’ lashes. I’ve never had anyone use such  tool while doing eyelash extension for me, and was glad that she did, because the results at the end were outstanding. My natural lashes were curled first prior to the lash attachment process and it certainly made a difference to the curl and overall neatness of the lash extensions. Browtisan is my favourite eyelash extension salon EVER. I’m planning on going back consistently for their services since having these really natural yet enhancing eyelashes on made my dressing up time in the morning a whole lot shorter. A big plus for the busy ladies out there!

I don’t have any eye makeup in this photo :) I love how the lash extensions create an illusion of an eyeliner across the upper waterline. Makeup always takes less than 5 mins each day and I wake up feeling more put together than just my usual self. Their prices are reasonable for the quality of service and lash extensions that you’ll be getting :)

Call them up for an appointment today! They’re always almost fully booked!
