Video: Gwiyomi

So I was actually making some vlogs on the iPad. Then I got bored and decided to do this. Finds video on YT, play it on one device and record it on the iPad. LOL!

Anyhow do one. Haha. Please don’t judge me. 😛





Video: YSL Lip Rave

So I’ve this current beauty addiction. Am hooked onto YSL lipsticks after randomly walking into the ION boutique one day with Joey and just randomly got a nice red lipstick cause of the packaging.

Current YSL lippies count: 5 and more to come. 😛

Enjoy watching my ramble in the video. I’ve done swatches in the video too. Forgot to take photo of it. Ops. 😛



Onboard the Joyride! To Joyville!

One fine Saturday afternoon…

This bus came along and me with a group of bloggers decided to go on it.

Hmmm, where is this weird guy bring us to?

Oh hey! We have this sweet lady handing out chocolates to us!

A ticket to Joyville and a bar of Marvelous Creations from Cadbury! This is getting really exciting!

Reached our destination and our humorous bus hosts posed for us for some photos of the Joyrider!

In we enter to a magical afternoon of Joy in Joyville!

3 new flavors of the Marvelous Creations Chocolate bars means 3 ambassadors! We have LadyIronChef representing the Jelly Crunchie Bits, Beatrice representing the Jelly Popping Candy Beanies and Maureen representing the Peanut Toffee Cookie.

Hitting the pack each to reveal many bars of chocolates!

I was looking at them searching through the many chocolate bars. Wanted to join them but ended up eye power-ing as I was in tight jeans and tall heels which made it difficult for me to squeeze in.

This was the special chocolate bar they were searching for and there were 3 of these. But apparently there was only two in the pile somehow. So Kelvin, PR for Cadbury found the third bar and wanted to throw it in the pile for grabs. Remember I was near the pile but was just standing there? So I somehow managed to catch the bar of chocolate before it landed in the pile. 😛 Lucky lucky~

Magician in the house! We have Huron Low who performed some pretty mind blowing tricks that day. How did he managed to switched the place of a piece of card that is personalized with a piece of chocolate in a sealed pack. I’ve no idea.

The star of the day! The Marvelous Creations Chocolate bars!! Available in 3 flavors but for the small bars, it’s only available in Jelly Popping Candy and Beanies and Jelly & Crunchie Bits. The Peanut Toffee Cookie one is only available in the big bars. I personally love the Jelly & Crunchie Bits one after eating a few bars.

Here’s Mint munching on a Jelly Popping Candy and Beanies Bar! Look at the chocolate bar, each piece is of a different shape!

Then it’s photo taking time! What’s an event without cam-whoring! 😛 Here’s a photo with the funny bus host who tried to charge us for the bus ride all in good humor.

And a photo with the pretty balloons and almost empty chocolate stand which was swept away by us blogger. 😛

Loads of photos were taken at a photo booth by Hello Stranger. But instead of spamming you with the photos we took, here’s a shot of the hard copies with the chocolates!! XD

Do you want to have a ride on the Joyrider? You can! Simply spend $20 on Cadbury chocolates and you get to charter the Joyrider for an hour! How cool is that? The bus is really fun!! Log on to Joyrider.Sg for more information!

Writing this post reminds me that I need to go try that bar of Peanut Toffee Cookie!

Hair Color Magic @ Salon De Choix

It’s time to pamper my hair over at Salon De Choix once again. Every single time I visit Salon De Choix, I’m excited yet at ease cause I know my hair is in good hands.

For hair like mine, bleached tend to be dry and lazy me is not hardworking enough to put hair mask twice a week. If only hair mask is as easy as doing sheet masks.

This is what happens, plus the green faded making the ends seems drier then it actually is. But I don’t have split ends so I guess my hair ain’t that bad. 😛

So this time round I decided to just go for 1 color as in 1 single hair dye for the whole head as per my usual dual color as I wanted my hair to rest. After discussion with my stylist Elein, we decided to go for a Deep Ash Blonde (12.11 Color code) for the whole head as I wanted an ashy color. I was also told by Elein that the bleach part of my hair will turn into an ashy blueish grey. Somehow it sounds really cool to me so I give the green light to go ahead with the process!

I had to first bleach off my remaining green before doing the color. And as usual, steaming helps speed up the process of coloring, and also allows the hair to absorb the dye more! Apparently, my hair can take in color quite well. Seeing the fact that most of my crazy colors can last me more then a month.

Wash off after the coloring and look at that!! It’s a nice greyish blue!! I don’t think I’ve seen anyone with this color. Happy cause I like to be unique.

And of course, we must not forget to do treatment for our hair! It is recommended to do treatment at least once a month! Elein added two types of Mythic Oil to the hair mask for added moisture and shine!

After treatment, my hair ends was trimmed a little and blown dry and viola! I can has gorgeous hair again!

Here’s a before and after photo to show you the awesome things Elein do to my hair. Trimmed my hair to get back the shape, treatment to smooth down the tresses and a new coat of color to freshen up the hair! Plus can you believe the blue is obtain from the same dye that give me the nice ashy brown color for the top part of my hair?

The greyish blue has a slight greenish tint to it from my previous color. Elein told me that this color can only be obtained from clashing colors. Example, ashy tone dye on bleached hair with green dye on it. So if you happened to have green hair like me, you might be able to achieve similar effects.

Also trimmed my bangs as I’ve deiced to let it grow sideways. It’s really a hassle to keep bangs so time for a change! Plus it’s been a while since I had side fringe. XD

Closer look at the hair color. Grey, blue and a little green highlight. I like that I’m unique. XD

This is how the blue looks like when damp. Too pretty that I can’t believe it’s my hair! Hee~
