Singapore Blog Awards 2011 – Adonis Best Beauty Blog Finalist

Hi everyone!

Here’s some good news to share with all of you! I’m one of the finalists in Singapore Blog Awards 2011 in the ADONIS Best Beauty Blog category along with 9 other beautiful ladies!

I was super excited when SBA2011 have included a beauty blog category this time round and super happy to know that I actually am one of the finalists! To me it’s a very big deal as being able to make it into the top 10 is a big recognition for my blog! My beauty blog to me is like my child, I put in loads of effort and time in it and is very proud of it. Hence, I’m really happy that the team behind SBA deem my blog worthy to be one of the top 10.

Ok, so we had a briefing over at ADONIS at Vivocity recently on what we are to expect during the period of the competition.

The briefing was held at the ADONIS @Vivocity outlet.

Do you know that the name ADONIS was originated from a male Greek God which represents beauty and youth?

 

The kind people of ADONIS provided us with refreshments, different types of tea that are good for our health plus some pastries! XD

 

How can a post goes without my face! LOL!

 

So we went through the briefing and did an interview with the OMY.SG crew, after that we also did some analyses to check on our skin condition and also our inner health. Over at ADONIS, they not only care for your beauty on the outer, but also your inner health. Beauty come from within, and ADONIS aims to help all women with that.

I actually did brought my camera along but was too engrossed with all the tests and such that I forgot to take photos! So there won’t be visuals to accompany my thoughts on the tests.

Skin Analysis

I did my skin analysis first and as expected, inflammation, redness and very clustered up nose with loads of blackheads! But luckily, no other problems showed up other then those that I know I have. 😛

Irislogy Test

This is an interesting test. The consultant will take a photo of your iris with a device and it will be magnified to about 30X bigger so that they can look at the patterns of the iris and from there, they will be able to know about your inner health.

Just when the consultant was taking a photo of my iris, she comment that I must have sleeping problems. Apparently the pupil of our eyes should only be like 1/3 the size of the outer ring but mine was like half the size. The consultant also mentioned that I have bowel problems and some slight liver problems too. She also said that my body is currently full of toxic that other problems could not be spotted. Hence she recommended me to start with detoxification first as it’s the biggest problem I have.

Live Blood Analysis

For this live blood analysis, the consultant will prick your pinky with a device to obtain a small drop of blood which she will observe under the microscope with the image being projected on a LCD screen.

For my case, I have too much protein in my system and apparently too much protein will become acidic and it’s not good for the joints. I’m also lacking in calcium which might lead to osteoporosis if I do not start to have a regular intake of diary products for calcium. The consultant also observe that my white blood cells are smaller then my red blood cells and it means that my immunity is lower then normal. This is because a healthy white blood cell should be bigger then the red blood cells. Also my red blood cells are clustered together and its not good too as the blood cells should be singular. Surprisingly, the fatty acids in my blood is only a little bit! I expect it to be clustered as I have quite an unhealthy diet. ><

To sum up, I have a lot of toxic in my body and I am sadly very unhealthy. >< Both consultant advice that I should first detox my body so that my body is able to absorb other nutrients.

 

This is the Aloe Pine Pollen that ADONIS carries which is meant for detox. According to the box, I should take 2 capsules every time before I sleep. However, the consultant who did the blood analysis for me recommend that I start with 3 instead as 2 might not be enough. I guess my body is really filled with toxic. ><

 

Other then the Aloe Pine Pollen, they have other products to cater for other needs too! For example the Nano Calcium to replenish calcium in our body and Nano Collagen to supply our body with ample collagen. They also have a product for partial slimming!

 

Over at ADONIS, they not only provide facial services, but also body treatments to manicure etc. Also, they used only 100% natural ingredients in the essences and serums that they used in their procedures.

To be honest, I have never done any facials before and I do not know what to expect for my first treatment with ADONIS. However, I am put at ease knowing that they only use natural ingredients in their procedures and also the atmosphere at ADONIS really is quite soothing.

I am very excited to be part of this and will be going through 3 treatments with ADONIS in the weeks to come. I can’t wait to share my experiences with ADONIS with all of you!

 

Currently leading in top 3 for votes but it’s only at the moment, so do vote for me so I can keep my face there! LOL! XD

Drink Culture

Attended an event at Drink Culture.

 

I love the deco of the place!

 

Here’s me~ XD

 

Comfy sofas! I would love to have something like that in my future home if I will ever have one. LOL.

 

Logo printed on the chairs. It gives a very vintage feel I think.

 

Here’s the bar! Super nice! If only the bar I worked at was this nice. LOL.

 

Another shot of the bar~

 

We had a demo session during the event, showcasing the how the products actually work in such a way that it’s good for our skin.

 

First up was on oil based MU remover. It’s good to use an oil cleanser that actually can mix with water so that it can remove the dirt/makeup efficiently and not clog our pores.  The milky one is the one which mixes well with water.

 

And here’s another one on facial cleansers. These 2 cleansers are mixed with sodium chloride, the closest thing to the sweat that are produced from our sweat glands. A good cleanser would be able to dissolve the sodium chloride. But if the cleanser became lumpy after mixing with the sodium chloride, it means that it can’t really cleanse our face well. Imagine that lump white stuff on our face, and the fact that it will turn hard overtime. >< Time to test out the cleansers we used at home! If it turned lumpy as seen in the picture below, best to throw it out! LOL!

 

Last demo was on anti-oxidants! How can it help with pigmentation? Let’s see with our own eyes! Here’s a sheet of paper stained by iodine.

 

Add the drop of Anti-oxidant chemical on it and see what happens,

If only they have such instant effects on the pigmentations on our skin. ><

 

Here’s another random pic! My drink of the day, Desert Rose, a very refreshing drink.

 

With Michelle! XD

 

Kimberly and Charlene with the pearl curtains! Rusty was supposed to be in the photo too but she was looking at Michelle’s camera instead in this pic.

 

Here’s all three of them gorgeous ladies!

 

And here’s one with Rusty and Michelle! Group photo of all 5 of us is with Michelle.~

 

Received a goodie bag at the end of the event which includes skincare samples, a BB cream and a cleansing oil which was used in the demo. Will be reviewing the products in a separate post! So look out for it!

I really like the environment of Drink Culture, the furnishing and atmosphere. Will be going back again! XD

Haul: Precious Stones Jewelery

I got these jewelery quite awhile ago from the flea market at *Scape. They are made from real stones and the designs are really nice. I got them at a steal as the seller who made these jewelery who’s a really nice lady made them as her hobby and is not really looking into earning from selling them. Most of the necklaces and bracelets are priced at $10 and the rings at $5.

I got 3 items, a necklace, a bracelet and a ring. I kind of wished that I’ve bought more though. All these only cost me $25! It’s a real deal for such pretty things!

 

Here’s the ring, it’s made from Black Onyx.

Another picture of the ring under flash. It’s really simple and elegant which goes well with everything! You must have noticed the black and gold combination which I really like, be it accessories or packaging. LOL.

 

Here’s the bracelet which I really like the main piece. It’s not too complicated and really pretty.

 

A closer look at the danglers which consists of a flower charm and 2 stones. The 2 stones are in different colors yet they are the same stone! The colors are natural, the stones are only polished to be smooth.

 

Here’s the necklace which is really simple yet outstanding due to the color of the stone. It’s hot pink and it’s the natural color! Also this is from the same stone as the ones from the bracelets.

 

Real simple design, with a flower charms and several dangling chains. The color of the stone really make it stand out!

 

Here’s a closer look at the stone, it’s naturally shaped like that, edges are smoothen out though. This stone is actually Turquoise! Are you surprised? I’m very surprised when I heard it from the lady who made them.

Lucky I got a name card from her so I can contact her to ask if she will be selling her creations at any future fleas. XD Clever me! LOL.

Look out for these precious stones jewelery if you happen to be at a flea, if you’re lucky you might be able to score some of these pretty creations for yourself. XD

First Ever Chanel Haul~

When talking about Chanel, you must have immediately thought of the bags etc.

But here in my blog, you won’t see Chanel bags or any branded bags.

Branded make up is all you will see here. XD

Don’t know why but I can bear to splurge on make up but never on bags and clothes. 😛

Anyways, I got just 3 items from Chanel but it cost me quite a bomb already. 😛 In fact I only wanted to get just that one item but ended up with 3. LOL.

Here’s the 3 items in the lovely black and gold Chanel packaging. XD

First up is the MAT LUMIERE EXTREME foundation. I’ve always heard good things about Chanel foundation so I decided to try one out and the BA recommended this to me.

I’m loving the packaging of Chanel Makeup, so simple and elegant.

Close up of the foundation. I got this in 10 Beige Clair which is the lightest shade if I’m not wrong. This cost me $85 but as it’s refillable I can just buy the refill at $63 the next time. Hopefully this foundation is good enough for me to repurchase it. XD

Here’s the star product of this haul. It’s the bronzer from the LE summer collection, which I’m eying ever since one of my fellow beauty blogger mentioned about it.

Look at the lovely Chanel logo~ So pretty!

Here’s a better picture to show the colors. I got it in Bronze Rose, which is the pinkish shade out of the two. The other one is Bronze Coral which is peachier.

This is like a multi purpose product, can be used as a bronzer, blush, highlighter and even as eye shadows. This cost me $77.

Lastly is this Sheer Illuminating Base which I never intend to get. But I was sold when the BA tested it out on me. My face felt so smooth after applying it!

It comes in a frosted glass bottle and also comes with a spatula.

It’s a creamy texture but a little runny. Good things it comes with the spatula so that we won’t make a mess when getting the product out of the bottle. This cost $58 for 30ml.

Will be reviewing the products soon after I tested them out! XD

But I would highly recommend you lovely ladies to go grab the bronzer if you love bronzer/blushes etc, it’s a item not to be missed!

That’s all for my first Chanel haul and it will not be the last. 😛
