Christmas + OOTD

Christmas Eve
December has always been my favourite month of the year. Not only my birthday falls in December, it is the season of giving and feasting too :)

So this Xmas eve, a few close friends gathered together at Shane's place for potluck.

Next up, it's gift exchange. We played secret Santa and I was in charge of getting a gift for Shane. My secret Santa got me a Clarins eye shadow palette and i love it to bits. Makeup will never go wrong for me :)

IT gadgets will never go wrong for guys!

Shane's new Nike Tee!

Aloy got us Xmas hats to hype up the Xmas mood :)

Pictionary next. Try guessing what we have drawn. Haha.

Christmas Day
Christmas day is always spend with bf's extended family. This year is no exceptional. We had pot luck at Aunt Lois's place. Food and company were awesome. We played dirty Santa and it was so hilarious. Ended the night with Magnum ice-cream :) (Photos credit to Han Siong)

Miracle Intensive Hair Mask

I have been getting alot of queries about the new hair mask that I got. So here you go :)

I got it from Valentine Fragrance located at Parkway Parade, #B1-07 and it is right in front of GNC. It is a shop that sells shampoo, skin care and fragrances.  

I blow dry my hair everyday and colour dye every 2-3 months. My ends are really dry so the shop assistant recommended this hair mask to me. I was pretty amazed by the results after my first use. Hair was really smooth and tamed for 3-4 days, given the fact I still wash and blow dry my hair everyday.

Direction: After I shampoo my hair, I apply the mask on my hair and concentrate on the ends. After that, I wrap my hair in a hot towel and leave for 15mins. Rinse off and style as usual.

Oriental Lookbook + OOTDs updates

I have been neglecting this space for quite abit. Thank you to those who keep checking back. To those who keep encouraging me to blog, here I am, back to blogging again :)

Chinese New Year is just one month away and if you have not bought your CNY apparels, do remember to catch our Oriental Collection one tomorrow at 830pm. We have tons of pretty clothes coming up and new collection will be up every 4-5 days. Speaking of CNY, we just had our Oriental outdoor shoot last Saturday. The day before the shoot, I checked the weather forecast and was projected thunderstorm in the late afternoon. Thunderstorm is a total nightmare for all outdoor shoot. But thank god it did not rain a single bit. In fact, it was scorching hot the entire afternoon. You might have noticed that we got a new Asian model. We have been getting a lot of feedbacks to switch from Caucasian to Asian models. We hope that with Asian models, you girls can judge the apparels better. Do let us know what do you think of our new face as well. Your feedback is much appreciated :)

Alright, we shall let the pictures do the talking :)

I'm loving the sexy back. Gonna keep this piece for CNY day one.
