one of the perks of blogging.. it’s so cool when you get to work with your favorite brands!! sort of like meeting your idol like that. hahaha! *fangirl mode on* and when it comes to hand and body products, i am sure most of the girls, like me, swear by L’occitane‘s products because they are really really good!
when L’occitane (it’s pronounced LOX-EE-TAN if you didn’t know!) invited me to an exclusive bloggers’ party to showcase their latest collection, i was delighted! 😀 along with Valerie, Juliet and Patricia, I was introduced to L’occitane’s latest Pivoine Delicate collection, which is a range of body products inspired by the lovely Peony flower and containing peony extract especially procured from Drôme!
the event was held at Fullhouse Cafe (which if you noticed, is also the very same place we did our shoot at for the upcoming collection!) it’s quite a new cafe/restaurant, with themed interior deco that’s really lovely!

i have to say, the flowery but fresh scent of the Pivoine Delicate Eau De Toilette (S$78) really grows on me! i’m not one for heavy perfumes that make you smell like an entire garden, and i like the lightly scented fragrance of the Pivoine Delicate Eau De Toilette as it has just the right balance of floral notes complemented by the sandal wood and citrusy notes!
the Shimmering Powder (S$56) is gorgeous enough with its unique packaging, and though i couldn’t get a good swatch of the shimmer powder when applied, it’s really sparkly and pretty without being too over the top! be careful with the pump though, the first time i pressed it really hard, and this whole explosion of shimmering powder came out. haha!
do pop over to a L’occitane store soon to check out the other products, i absolutely love the Pivoine Delicate Hand Cream (S$32) in the same collection as well that has the same gorgeous fragrance and feels really good on the hands! another interesting product i’d be sure to get my hands on is the Pivoine Delicate Eau de Toilette & Gloss Duo (S$39), a carry-around 2-in-1 compact that combines the lip gloss and Eau de Toilette into one super portable and convenient product that’d be perfect for slipping into your tote for touch-ups!
Pivoine Delicate will be available in stores from the 31st May!! 🙂 also, stay tuned for an exciting give-away from L’occitane as well.. i can’t wait to share more on that soon!!! 😀
a FotD for the day of the event, i wore the Pixie Eyelet Frock in Pure White from TheVelvetDolls and matched it with a pastel pink blazer i got from Megagamie last year, since the theme was PINK 😀
i went with a very natural look for my makeup, false eyelashes that look like they are barely there and contouring on the brows and nose to bring out my features better ^^ oh and i have got a really good hair product that’s i’ve been using when blow-drying my hair to get it to curl in nicely at the ends! i will share on that next entry! 🙂
ohhh some long over due pictures from dinner with my favorite Cherri a couple weeks ago! 😀 Cherri popped over to office to get some stuff, so we went to pig out at Wan Tou Sek, and ordered soooo much we could barely finish. next time i’m never gonna give in to Cherri’s orders again. want to order so much then halfway through complain that she’s full already! TSK.

my top picks are the chee cheong fun, glutinous rice and 纸包鸡!!! so yummy! the 流沙包 is so MEH, it’s just custard with no salted egg yolk 🙁
and yup that’s the Lace Overlay Tank in Cream from TheVelvetDolls! i wear a size M 😀 love it so much! Endlessly versatile and can be worn in so many styles, casual/dressy/corporate!
oh yes, someone asked for an instagram of the Garden of Eden Floral Blazer in White, so here it is! 🙂 it comes in S, M & L, and i wear a size M! 🙂
i totally couldn’t decide between the two colors at all.. and ended up keeping both! :X well, the prints/colours are totally different, so it’s forgivable! 😛 plus, blazers can be worn in so many different ways too! the lace dress paired with the blazer is also an upcoming piece! ^^
just came back from a jog (i woke up at 6.30AM to jog!!!) and i’m hoping to change my lifestyle a little for a healthier me 🙁 ugh, i wonder why all my “health initiatives” never seem to last. so this time round, it starts again! meaning to say, cutting down on my junk food and getting more exercise into my schedule! waking up early is good for me too, so that i can start the day early and get more work done, and try to sleep earlier :X
alrighty. stay happy everyone! have an awesome week, and i will try to blog again soon so do come back and visit ok? ❤❤❤
