Vanity Trove + Switch with Ground Zero!

TGIF!!! :D :D :D

i promised to blog more regularly, but only managed to squeeze out a blog entry today! actually, i really have a lot of stuff i wanna blog about! i even typed out this list of content that i want to blog! it's okay, i'll slowly blog about them one by one ^^

today's blog entry is somewhat outdated, but i received my April Trove from Vanity Trove and haven't gotten a chance to share it yet! this whole beauty box subscription idea is SO ingenious! i've heard of a few other websites with similar concepts, but by far, Vanity Trove's products and branding are definitely the most appealing to me!

it's quite simple, you just need to pay a monthly subscription fee of $25, and every month, a box consisting of various handpicked skincare, makeup, body, fragrances and hair products will arrive at your doorstep! it's SO fun to come home to a "present", and even more fun to unwrap and open your box to check out what surprises lie in store for you!
everything's prettily packed into a nice little box, and there's even a newsletter which doles out beauty tips each month!
i really love the products sent in my April Trove! they are all products i find very interesting, while some brands are fresh and new to me! i had to try some of the products immediately upon opening my box, and i really fell in love with some of them! the Braphy LED Lip Plumper is really awesome, it really makes my lips look poutier! and i've already tried K-Palette's Zero Kuma Cover Control Concealer and i thought that it was quite good, so it was nice to get another full-sized product in my Trove! :D
the star product for me, however, is the hair product enclosed within my April Trove, which is Style Aromatheraphy Moroccan Argan Hair Moisturizer! remember i said i had an amazing hair product to share about? YES!! it's this super miraculous hair moisturizer! it's a leave-in product, and i apply it on my semi-wet or dry hair, before blow drying my hair and it makes the shape turn out so nicely!! i love it!!!

so happy to discover this product, i'm definitely going to get the full-sized product from stores when mine runs out! 

for only $25 a month, i'm loving it! i LOVE the surprise factor, and the products that comes in each trove are indeed well worth the $25! so fun! :D


and i finally have a chance to edit and upload the photos from my gig at Switch with Ground Zero three weeks ago!!!! oh gosh.. it was such an incredible experience for me, mostly because of all my MAD SUPPORTIVE friends!!! i can't emphasize how happy and grateful i felt because so many lovely people took the effort to come down to watch and listen, or even if they couldn't make it down, sent their love via Twitter/Whatsapp/Instagram and what not!

you don't need to be a super star, to feel like one :')

well to be honest, it was my first full English gig, and singing in English is something that i can do, but is not quite my forte. i'm more well-versed in singing Mandarin songs, and added to that, i had to choose my songs from a limited song list due to time constraints, and did not have any rehearsals with the band at all, so i was really quite nervous about screwing up real bad!

in the end, it went okay, but i wouldn't say i did a fantastic job because some of the songs probably didn't really suit me (there were a lot of songs from male artistes) and i was still adjusting to the acoustics of singing with the live band. nonetheless, i had so much fun! especially with Ground Zero being incredibly awesome. Alex, the male vocalist was really great to sing with, and the live band atmosphere was superb!

i look exceedingly retarded when i'm singing though. HAHAHA. so i have only picked those shots in which i don't look quite so bad in! :S

vocalist: Alex, guitarist: Ben, drummer: Alfe, bassist: Mervyn, keyboardist, Celeste!

and the first of my audience that i need to thank is of course YZ ^^ who stayed the entire night and was almost as tired i was by the time it ended! thank you bb! 

sissy Lina also came down, and helped to take all the photos above for me! :D teehee, though i only managed to pick a few acceptable shots out of all the ugly ones :X but i guess i can't blame you for that haha
