I'm dying (still sick) with a superbly persistent cough and blocked nasal passage and went to see Bedok's famous Doctor Tay today for more medicine. 😂
Doctor Tay can you make me well??
I feel like I've been cooped up in my house for the longest longest time ughhhhh!
Haven't logged into Dayre for a few days too. I hope everyone's doing fine?
Been trying to get myself out of the house whenever I can cuz I'm literally sick of being sick 😷
So good thing this morning, very few other ppl were sick too and I barely had to wait ten minutes before Doctor Tay saw to me!
More medicine from famous Tay, hope I get all well soon. It's really annoying to be coughing every other minute, especially with my poisonous looking bright green phlegm!
On the plus side, at least I've been getting out of the house since yesterday, even though I'm not totally there (quite spaced out at times) but at least I feel like something is going on with me 😂
Like yesterday, I actually attended two events!
A Macdonalds open kitchen tour in the afternoon and a taste of the newly launched crispy chicken burger 😋🍟🍔
It was fun!!! If you followed me on snapchat you would have seen the kitchen too. So technologically advanced and cool.
Seeing the burger boxes all stacked up so neatly in the McDonald's kitchen makes me feel happy somehow.
I really do like McDonald's 😂
And then I attended a cosy La Mer dinner at Prive Grill after that 😍
Oh I love La Mer products. Anti-aging is a big concern when you're hitting your 30s soon and their products are so luxurious and effective too 😍 There's a brand new product coming out, called "The Perfecting Treatment"!
It's this gel-like consistency to be used after skincare and before makeup for perfecting skin tone, texture and translucency!
Smells amazing and absorbs so well. Can't wait to start using it!
That gel-like, liquidy texture feels soooo good on the skin 😍
And well, who doesn't love the feeling of being pampered? 😊 La Mer always makes me feel so so pampered and well taken care of 😘
Currently, I'm using La Mer's The Renewal Oil and it's one of my favourite products especially for lazy days. Cos I'll just spritz on my toner from IDS, and then use a few drops of the oil all over my face, and that's it!
It leaves my skin feeling soft and supple!
Other new products that I've been testing includes the new YSL cushion! I used it today and I really like how it sits on my skin very naturally. The coverage is really good!
I'll use it a few more times first before I pass my verdict on this cushion, but honestly I would buy it just because it's YSL 😂 So posh and gorgeous looking!
And here's a bad photo of my new hair color 😍😍😍 I went down to Vim on Tuesday because sitting around at home got really sian and I'd rather go out and get something done 💇🏻 I love it so much I'm considering bleaching more of my hair so that I can color my hair in these gorgeous crayon pastel shades!!!
Of course, I also did a hair and scalp treatment at salon vim since I color my hair quite frequently. It helps to keep my hair in healthier condition!
[Texture Care Collagen Hair Treatment]
The new 5-step treatment takes center stage with its all rounded star benefits, boasting an ultra concentrated PROTEIN BOOSTER for added strength & elasticity, MOISTURISING ESSENCE for max hydration & nourishment, HYDROLYZED MARINE COLLAGEN & AMINO ACIDS to help delay aging of hair.
All of these "supercharged" with our NANO MIST infusion machine for enhanced penetration & long-lasting results.
I also did scalp treatment because my scalp is too dry 😿 I've been losing a lot of hair and it's scary! My bedroom floor is covered with strands of my fallen hair and there's always so many strands all over my floor 🙄
So I did the Texture Balancing instant rejuvenating scalp treatment and it's supposed to hydrate and cleanse my scalp and make my scalp healthier so that my hair can grow better and also stop falling out so much 😡
Photo from yesterday at Macdonalds, I brought YZ along cos he's a big fan of Macs too and because he was so sweet to drive me down all the way to JEM for the event! 😘
I haven't been seeing my bbb (best blogger buddy) aka @evonnz as often because she's sick and I'm sick and we're both busy being sick and other stuff 😂
We did a most horrid snapchat face swap I cannot it is really ugly.
It's quite funny that sometimes people who meet us for the first time together say we look alike/look like sisters. We probably hang out together too much that's why. Did you know that couples start to look alike because their facial expressions unconsciously start to mirror each other's?
Some couples even start speaking alike with the same kind of sentence structure/language pattern!
Think we both look waaaay better as ourselves of course 😂
Today I used my YSL cushion again and took a before and after to show y'all ^.^
This is after light application of the YSL cushion, which I find very pigmented, a little goes a long way!
Not sure if you can tell, but it does a very good job of even-ing out my skin tone and has a slight brightening effect while still looking very natural.
It's semi-matte, but somehow gives that "my-skin-but-better" finish!
Here's a better comparison picture: can see how my skin tone looks a lot more even and slightly brighter after application?
PS. It doesn't make my face look rounder ok it's because the second shot was taken slightly zoomed in 😂
On a very random note, I'm currently working on a post for KATE's newest eyeliner, and I remembered that many years ago, in my very first makeup post everrrr, I also recommended KATE's super sharp eyeliner (seven years ago!!!).
So I did a quick search and pulled up this horrible blogpost (from livejournal days, that's how long ago it was) in which honestly speaking my makeup skills were so basic and my eyebrows were ghastly.
2009 vs 2016:
1. I'm six years (plus) older
2. Eyebrows much more on point (embroidered now, too)
3. Sharper face?? Because of braces and aging
4. Aesthetic fillers in my nose has given it a lot more definition
5. My dark eye rings look the same.
I think the eyebrows make so much difference!! Which is why I advocate brow shaping and grooming so strongly 😂 Just had my brows threaded today at Browhaus and they look way nicer after the session.
I like to book last minute brow appointments because I'm a very last minute person. So usually I'll try to make a appointment at any of the three places below that has an empty slot for me:
1. Benefit Brow Bar (waxing!)
2. Browhaus (threading)
3. Erabelle (tweezing & shaving)
As you can tell I'm not fussy because I'm ok with any of the above three, and so far I've not had any bad experiences with Benefit, Browhaus or Erabelle yet, regardless of which outlet I happen to visit.
I'm randomly rambling now because I'm waiting for my dinner dates to show up! So hungry already 😿
I wanted to tell y'all about something that I find supremely annoying but it makes me come across as a bitch.
But the gist of what I want to say is "I hate people who shamelessly self-promote themselves" 😑
If you're made of true substance, it's pretty much a given that eventually you will be recognized for it, somehow.
But if you're just a half-past six looking to climb up the ranks, the worst way to do it is to self-praise and glorify yourself. 😒
