Nuts about You


Nuts can be so addictive but they are simply too fattening! To a regular muncher like me, opting for a healthier choice is definitely a must to keep slim:-p

I would like to share with you my new find, Garden Picks. They were founded on the notion of bringing a wide array of healthy dried fruits and nuts to us in Singapore conveniently. 

I got these 3 for $10!

Macadamia is my personal favourite. A never go wrong selection. 

For a spicy feel, try this unusual flavored cashews. Made me feel like in Thailand.

An assortment of nuts, likely baked/roasted for a healthy munch.

Currently they are having a berry special offer at 3 packs for SGD$10! That's really worthy, considering how much you will need to pay normally for a pack of macadamias?

A Luxe Affair by Singapore Tatler

It was truly a fashion extravaganza for the night at Luxe Affair organized by Singapore Tatler in Scotts Square. 

Singapore Tatler is a premier luxury lifestyle magazine, which is the insider's guide to the best the world to offer, from the most exciting parties, personalities, products to the most respected insights, ideas and inspirations. 

Jazz as background music, while the crowd was mingling with champagne and canap├ęs before the start of show.

Our lovely shot which was printed instantly for us;-)

Various labels with boutiques located in Scotts Square showcased their latest Autumn/Fall collection.

We were spoilt by the choices. My personal favourite  was the collection from Herve Leger presented by Coda and Co. 

I simply adore their dresses. The amazing thing about the material of the dress is it will help to bind the areas you feel fat eg tummy. Also can push up the boobs and butt. This is simply a god-send creation for me and all ladies that simply needs a boost. 

That's me in my Herve Leger during the last Fide Fashion Week. I love the way the dress hugged my body to give me curves.

The amazing local songbird, Dawn Ho, entertained us with lovely Jazz ballads in-between the show. 

I left happily with a goodie bag. One of the items was a $300 voucher ($100 to be used per receipt) for purchase Herve Leger! Time for shopping again.

Coast to Coast Australia


Recently I discovered an Aussie au naturel skincare brand, Coast to Coast. 

Products from Coast to Coast are made from natural and organic ingredients, grown, harvested, handled, processed, and stored without the use of pesticides, synthetic chemicals, phosphates, growth stimulants or antibiotics. 

I tried the Replenishing Cleansing Milk for the past week. Texture of the cleanser was light and not rich. Smell was pleasant. The cleanser was easily washed off. Skin didn't feel dry after wash. Cleanser is selling at SGD$45 retail. 

Another choice product I tried, the mist is currently retailed at $37. Very good perk-me-up in the office and for setting the makeup. Face would not feel dry and the tendency to blot had been reduced. 

Currently Coast to Coast is having a 50% storewide sale. A cleanser retailing at $45 is now at half the price! It has not been announced when the sale will end. Why wait, this is the best time to check them out!

Till then, I look forward to review more products from Coast to Coast;-)

TGRF; thank god for Radio Frequency


Feeling so blessed I live in this modern age when we are being surrounded by so much creams, technologies to delay the signs of aging. 

As a woman in this generation, we are such multi-taskers. Time is really an essence. It is really great to have medical spas helmed by the aesthetics doctor themselves offering lunchtime fixes.

I am pleased to be invited to try SkinLab's new Radio Frequency Lifting treatment. 

It was a 35 minutes procedure, totally non-evasive. I was greeted by a warm, friendly therapist who explained the entire procedure to me before starting. 


The environment was clean and not clinical. She started by doing a thorough cleaning of my face, followed by a 10 minute relaxing head and shoulder massage with aromatherapy oil. Good to relax those tired muscles after a long day.

Thereafter, a cooling gel was applied to the face. This was crucial so your face would not get burnt by the heat from the RF and helped to cool the face too. 

Applying the cool gel on my face.


She concentrated on my right face, I could feel the heat slowly slipping in.  It was like a tippling feel on your face. It became hotter gradually but you could ask the therapist to reduce if you were not able to take the heat. I would halt her to avoid the area if a slight pierce was felt.

See the face after one side was completed. Left side appeared to be more taut. 

I am done! No filter, no makeup; only toner and sunblock applied by the therapist. 

Can you see my more contoured chin?

Face felt more supple and firm after the treatment. Even my fine lines under my eyes looked quite faint. 


Kudos to the wonderful therapist (she was shy to be named;-p) who did a terrific job for me and SkinLab who had given me the opportunity to experience this superb technology. Truly the sunshine who made my day brighter. I will definitely be back again.

Restore Gel by Dr GL


 
When the name Dr GL pops out, naturally you will think it will be expensive since she is a known celebrity aesthetic doctor. 

I tried this product when it was first launched last year and never looked back. The product was packed with lots of goodness and it was very reasonably priced. 

100ML SGD$38
240ML SGD$68 


It is a dual used product; can be used as a mask or just as a daily moisturizer. As a mask, just slap on a thick layer over the face and wipe off the excess after 30 mins. As a gel moisturizer, just smooth onto face as required. It is best used after  laser, peels etc. 




A proprietary blend of natural ingredients including Gardenia Florida Extract and Scutellaria Root Extract heals skin with its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial powers. Its blue hue extracted from Guaiazulene helps counteract redness while its all-natural fragrance exerts calming effect.

**The product is available online at: http://www.drgl.com; 

**The counters at Robinsons JEM, The Centre point and Raffles City;

Gelato Mania at Alfero


Desserts spell backwards means Stressed. Who can ever resist desserts especially a tasty one? I am one of them that adores quality dessert especially Gelato! 

Alfero's outlet at Marina Square

When I first stepped into the store, I was asking the lady "where is the gelato?" There was no sight of any gelato in the display cabinet. Then I was told all the gelato was stored in pozzetto cabinet. 

Where is the gelato, babe?

The rationale behind this kind of unique storage is to ensure no light or air contamination will affect the quality of the gelato. All customers will enjoy the gelato that is in perfect consistency, smoothness and taste. 

You will be greeted with a smile even if you just want to sample. I am now spoilt for choices, I wish I can have it all;-)

One mouthful into any of the flavors, you can immediately taste the freshness and smoothness of the gelato. As what Mr Marco Alfero, the owner commented, most of the ingredients were specially imported from Italy and all freshly made in their lab in MacPherson Lane, Singapore. 

I chose Bacio and Pistachio

Another deadly irresistible wake-me up concoction I tried; Mao Shan Wang with Espresso. Slurps even for a non-durian lover me. It tasted really 'durian', lost for words, hmmmm. 

So glad the gelato is 96% fat free, I can eat it happily without feeling guilty I will pile on extras. Perhaps I will make a trip down tonight to rid my Monday blues away with Alfero Gelato.
