My Secret To ..

Cellulite, stubborn fats, stretch marks... They are all so ugly and they make most women feel insecure about themselves. Today's post is specially for those of you out there who desires for a pair of perfect legs but never had the time to do anything about it. As you all know, sometimes even with exercises and workouts, stubborn fats remain as stubborn fats.

I may look like I have fairly skinny limbs but that doesn't mean I am not a victim of cellulite, stubborn fats and stretch marks. In fact, I do have a pretty bad case of cellulite and stretch marks on my thighs. Trust me when I say I know exactly how it feels.

I was recently introduced to Hello Beauty's Leg Contouring Essence and I was pretty surprise at how it's helping with my flabby legs and cellulites.

This lightweight and non-greasy essence contains my favourite whitening agent Arbutin and other natural ingredients that not only slims and firms your legs, but also promotes blood circulation and softens while hydrating your skin. It also contains natural plant extract formulated for optimal absorption.


Before, 13.50 cm


After, 13.15 cm



With a mere 3 minutes daily, you can achieve fairer and slimmer legs in just 2 weeks.

Colour my word



If you're following me on my instagram, you would have noticed that JS and I bought ourselves a new pair of trainers each ! It is definitely not a me-thing to be so obsessed with barbie pink and running but I figured it's time I stop procrastinating and start running again.

And since it was payday not long ago, I decided to buy myself something to reward myself for the hardwork I've put in in the past month. I also figured that if I paid a "huge" amount on the new kicks, I would want to wear them more often to fully utilize them. That being said, I'll end up working out more so that's actually good news aye ?

I've also made a pact with the boyfriend that I'll lose 10kg by April 1st so hopefully I don't lose this pact. I am 55kg now so I better start getting myself back in shape before my pre-wed shoot.

Talk about beauty : Hello there, sparkling eyes

Headed down to COVO for my lash touchup last week and again, I am amazed at the magic Jeane did on my lashes. I have been receiving a handful of questions regarding my lash extension experience so I'll be answering some of the frequently asked questions here.

(1) Does it hurt ? How does it feel like ?

Well, to be very honest, throughout both my sessions at COVO, there was totally zero pain, neither was there any irritations at all. I felt literally nothing and even fell into a deep sleep on both sessions. The only feeling you could get is probably having something touch your lash as Jeane sticks the extensions on, that's all. And I swear it's true !!

(2) How long does it last ?

The photo you see above are my 3 weeks old extensions. Most extensions can last up to 3 weeks, or even a month, depending on how well they are taken care of. The extensions will slowly fall off but don't you worry about your own real lash cause lashes fall and regrow every few weeks so you girls don't need to be scared of losing all your real lashes.

(3) Isn't false lashes cheaper and easier ?

HELL NO !! Lash extensions saves so much time and effort !! I don't know how long you girls take to do your make up but I personally take a long time cause I simply suck at it. And having to put mascara and trying to stick the eyelashes properly is such a chore no ??

On days when you don't want to have heavy make up, like school days or Monday morning blues, with eyelash extensions you can just pat on some foundation and head out and you still look pretty cause you'll have full volumized lashes!!

And another reason is - eyelash extensions always stays curled up !! You don't ever have to worry about your lashes falling down and looking uncurled at the end of the day. That's definitely one plus point for super lazybones like me.

Ok, more photos of my chio lashes !

Talk about beauty : Windows to My Soul


Sparkly and fluttery eyes ? All thanks to my gorgeous Japanese eyelash extensions done at COVO !

Beauty is never effortless for me. Furthermore, I am a real lazy bone. Ever since I started working full time, there is only this much me time I can have for myself. Because of my lazy nature, I stopped taking care of my skin, stopped taking care of my tresses, stopped dolling up, and as time goes by, I stopped pampering myself entirely.

Then reality snapped. Running a Sales & Marketing department, I need to look good. Or at least, presentable. But the lazy bones in me is not willing to sacrifice time off my sleep to make up in the morning. The most I will do to my face in the morning is sunblock, and that's it, and when I report for work my colleagues would ask me if I am sick cause my eyes simply look so dead.

People often say our eyes are the windows to our soul. Like many other Asian females, I am born with relatively short and sparse lashes. In order to achieve sparkly and fluttery eyes, I need to curl my lashes and apply layers and layers of mascara which is extremely time consuming, especially during the morning rush hours. My saviour to this woes is, JEANE from COVO.

Before I start my session, I was asked to fill up some forms and I proceeded to the consultation with Jeane. I was totally spoilt for choice with the various curl types and lengths to choose from. There was also different styles of extensions. All in all, there were so many combinations for me to choose from I can't even decide so I trusted Jeane to customise what she think would be most suitable for me - C curl, with varying thickness for a more natural look.


The magical room where I fell asleep and woke up with gorgeous eyes


During the process

It has been slightly more than a week since I did my lashes and although some are falling off, but most of them are still standing strong. What I love about lash extensions is that are already curled so you don't have to curl them or put on any mascara. It literally saves me all the time from having to do any eye makeup. Well, you still can put on eye makeup if you want, but why bother to waste your time when you can have instant gorgeous eyes ?!



Why should you try eyelash extensions ?

It's time saving ! For lazy bones like me, who doesn't put makeup regularly, you will definitely look more presentable or at least look more awake. Once you start, you probably cannot stop. Can't wait for my next visit to COVO for my touchup. For those who are interested,
