The search for the Perfect Hair

Hair will make or break your entire look. Find the right hairstylist and you can have the most perfect hair. I totally agree with that.  Hair is a woman's richest ornament.  Can you imagine waking up with a bad hair, it will really spoil your entire day.
The perfect hairstylist is akin to finding the right man, someone whom you can trust and gives in to your whims and fancy.
Finally found the salon that I had patronized since fifteen years ago. Founders Anthony and Raymond started the salon from a little corner in a HDB void deck to a popular bespoke salon in Bencoolen; named Black Hair Salon.
The young enterprising guys, together with a team of dedicated stylists make Black Hair Salon a popular understated salon among the different age groups.

A Sunday Brunch at Brawn and Brains

My family and I were so excited to find a new little quaint cafe in our Mountbatten neighbourhood; Brawn and Brains. 
It was a cosy place that could seat less than fifteen persons. Our little family of four were greeted with warm friendly staff. 

We ordered their Chicken Wrap and Molten eggs, with bacon and vegetables sandwich. How could we miss out the coffee? We even got the chance to choose the coffee beans. My hubby chose the Sumatra Mandheling beans for his cappuccino and Costa Rican beans for my latte. Coffee is priced reasonably here at only SGD$3.50 per cup.

 My Latte. Loved the taste of full-bodied coffee. Lovely.
Another worthy coffee to try, Cappuccino.
 Baby-ccino for the kiddos was equally tasty. Only at SGD$1.50 per cup. Girls finished sipping in minutes. Too yummilicious.
Molten eggs, with bacon and vegetables sandwich. Healthy combo at SGD$7.  
 Another less sinful option; Chicken with vegetables wrap. Also SGD$7.
 Girls were happily enjoying their little corner, while keeping an eye on their scooters.
We truly enjoyed their food and hospitality in Brawn and Brains. One thing to note: the flooring is really good when you had kids in tow. Slip proof and also prevent breakages. Will definitely make B&B as our weekly brunch escapade. Good job to the team. We look forward to see more food selections in the menu soon.

Take a break, have a RF

I truly believe in constant upkeep of oneself.  It will help to delay the harsh realities of time. For me, one of the ways is going for non-evasive facial treatments to maintain.

Checking out the RF facial treatment by DrSpa, by Dr Georgia Lee. A bespoke spa who only promised to use the best equipment and ingredients for their clients.
I was welcomed with friendly smiles, warm lights and birds chirping music. Such a haven of peace away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Rooms looked neat and clean without being too clinical.
My feet was given a soak in the water with rose petals before changing into the robe. Comforter was thick, to ensure I would not feel cold during the entire two-hour treatment. The therapist started by giving me a deep cleansing on the face, followed by an extraction of the blackheads and blemishes. The main lead came on finally, the Radio Frequency, aka RF. She used the RF rod to go round the face, eyes and neck areas. It felt warm but not prickly. The session finished with a CO2 Mask. This was proprietary to the spa. It felt like a gel and was cooling. I was very fascinated when she sprinkled a fizzing liquid on the mask. It felt like pouring coke on my face. The therapist told me this would help in removing the mask. The mask made my face very radiant.
I would love to highlight the vanity corner in the spa. Especially after treatment, hair and face looked horrible. Having a well-equipped vanity corner with DR GL makeup range, hair-dryer, did make me looked all dolled up and not like a plain white sheet with messy hair.
A specially Dr GL concocted tea, named GlowCha was served. As you could see from the picture above, it came with lots of goodness. It was easy to drink too. How I wish they would sell in takeaway packs and I could experience such goodness daily:-)
The entire experience had been superb. I was able to relax, had a great nap and enjoyed awesome tea while slouching on the couch without having to worry about the girls coming to you to hard sell their packages. (enough!) I felt so rejuvenated and ready to embrace more challenges ahead.
Truly appreciative to Dr Lee and Evelyn for giving me the opportunity for such an awe-inspiring experience. Cannot wait for my next visit.

Yoguru's limited edition salted caramel

I was so excited to see Yoguru launching my favourite, Salted Caramel. The staff was sharing with me they took a long time to come up with this delicious yet tasty concoction. Yogurt is supposed to be healthy right? 
I had mine topped with almonds and fruity pebbles. Before I had a bite, my hub took it and couldn't stop eating hahaha. Can you imagine how tasty it was?

Come on to Yoguru as this will be served during this festive season only. Really wish they can have it permanently on their menu. Praying hard. 

For more details on their location around Singapore, check their web on or their Facebook Page 'yoguru'

It had certainly brighten up my day! Look forward to more salted caramel:-)
