Walking Down The Memory Lane With These Pretty Vintage Clothing

.

Two weeks ago, while I was doing some errands near Bugis, I decided to check out the stores at Bugis Village. I hardly patronize the area as I always feel that they are selling clothing mostly from Thailand and China with cheap fabrics and bad workmanship. But I was quite surprised to discover a pretty interesting shop at Bugis Village at level 2 called The Good Old Days.

.

At this vintage shop, I can find pretty dresses, top, jackets, shoes, scarfs, bags, belts and accessories in 60s – 70s fashion.

.

After browsing through in less than 5 minutes, I have picked up 4 dresses that I would like to try on. Each individual piece is special and unique, and there is no repetition on the design/material at all. And I don’t have to worry of me wearing the same piece as others. The prices are reasonable that ranges from S$35 to S$69 for dresses.

Review – Jamu Power Tummy Slim Treatment At One Beauty Spa

.

This Monday, I was exclusively invited to experience a spa treatment of my choice at One Beauty Spa at their newest outlet @ Liang Seah Street. And thanks to TheSampleStore for extending this invitation to me.

.

One Beauty Spa Profile

They specialise in all skin conditions and problems.

They offer a full range of pampering services using the latest and the most advanced equipment, targeted at showing results and providing a personal and lasting experience.

.

My First Impression At One Beauty Spa

Upon arrival, the first thing I noticed at their newest outlet @ Liang Seah Street was the dim reception area. It was an afternoon, no light was on and they were using natural light from the full-glass entrance to brighten up the whole area. This new 3-storey outlet was recently opened for business in less than three weeks ago. The smell of paint and new furniture was a little unbearable for me.

.

I was warmly welcomed by Cherry and she gave me a quick mini tour on the first and second level. There is one shower room and toilet in every level.

.

I’m pleased to find out that One Beauty Spa carries a few premium world-recognised beauty brands such as BECOS Italy and Jane Iredale.

.

I’ve gotten to know Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup products about a year back. I’ve never used the products before but I’m glad to discover this amazing brand after reading some good reviews on the products.

Jane Iredale is the first brand to supply the aesthetics industry with a full-line of makeup based on minerals and the first to see the potential of offering physicians a makeup good for the skin.

It’s so effective it is recommended by plastic surgeons, dermatologists and skin care professionals.

.

I was offered to select my preferred treatment from these 5 treatments :

1. Lava Stone Detox and Relaxing Massage

2. Meso Skin Rejuvenation Therapy

3. Jamu Power Tummy Slim

4. Radio Frequency (RF) Eye Lift

5. IPL Hair Removal for Under Arm

Eventually I’ve selected Jamu Power Tummy Slim because I like the idea of reducing water retention, warming my womb, removing winds and toxins from it.

Jamu Slimming Tummy Wrap (45 mins) $138
Shape and contour the problematic tummy area with this all-natural herbal treatment. Traditional Indonesian herbs and oils which have proven to have no side effects will then be applied liberally before a tight wrap, follow by a thermal heat wrap to aid the slimming process and reduce water retention from the body. This also helps to warm the womb, remove winds and toxins from it. Post-pregnancy and ladies with irregular monthly cycle will find this treatment especially beneficial.

.

My Experience with Jamu Slimming Tummy Wrap

Immediately after the mini tour, I was lead to a treatment room at level one to begin my first Jamu Slimming Tummy Wrap treatment. The therapist started the treatment with a quick herbal body scrub on the abdomen area in a circular motion. After removing the scrub, she then applied a mixture of traditional Indonesian herbs and oils on the abdomen area before a tight wrap was done. These Indonesian herbs and oils are claimed to have no side effects at all.

Tony Moly Press Conference Cum Product Launch (Floria and Latte Art Range) With Song Joong Ki

.

This Monday 20 December 2010, I was exclusively invited to the private Tony Moly Press Conference Cum Product Launch at InterContinental Hotel @ beside Bugis Junction which started at 12.30pm sharp.

It was to welcome Song Joong Ki to Singapore to celebrate the recent opening of Tony Moly Singapore’s flagship store in Bugis Junction and to launch the NEW Tony Moly Floria and Latte Art range.

.

Song Joong Ki, its newly appointed brand ambassador, has visited Singapore for the first time. He is here to unveil the newly flagship store which opened on 17 November 2010 as well as to endorse the brand’s newest additions to the retail shelves here - Floria and Latte Art ranges.

Song Joong Ki, a 25 year-old Korean star who has acted on TV series such as Sangkyunkwan Scandal, Obstetrics & Gynaecology Doctors and Triple, has a clean and flawless complexion and is even better than some women out there. Many fans like his “flower pretty boy” image.

.

When asked what is the first impression in Singapore, he claimed that he actually likes the warm weather in Singapore. What is the product he will recommend to his friends in Singapore? His answer is sunscreen, as the weather is hot and humid here. Does he prefer fun or sensual look? He prefers clean look.

.

To launch the NEW Latte Art range with an impression, Tony Moly has creatively gotten Song Joong Ki to pour cocoa powder onto a cardboard stencil with “TM” (aka Tony Moly) that was placed on top of a giant cup.

Love the end result!

.

After which Song Joong Ki signed off on the giant cup.

.

After the press conference, all guests were proceeded to a buffet lunch and to sample the new product Latte Art range.

Me and Calle Teng, gorgeous mama of 4 and the director of Tony Moly Singapore.

.

The Tony Moly Latte Art is ear marked as the brand’s most newest innovative product for the year with its very unique and creative packaging. Packaged exactly like a Latte served in a cappuccino cup complete with aromatic coffee fragrance, the range consists of a Morning Pack and a Scrub.

Latte Art Milk Tea Morning Pack, 80ml – S$32.90

This Latte Art Milk Tea Morning Pack is unlike any other product in the market. It can be used as a Makeup Base Pack in the morning or a Facial Mask.

When it is used as a Makeup Base Pack in the morning, it is superb for working women who find themselves struggling with dry and puffy skin. Just like an early morning cup of quick wake up Latte, the Morning Pack provides an instantaneous acting effect on an overnight skin. This innovative Morning Makeup Base Pack is designed to be super fast acting so that it can be used in the busy morning especially when makeup does not apply smoothly.

Included in the packaging is a creamy milk essence that comes in another creative packaging that looks like a milk creamer for a coffee.

When the creamy milk essence is added into the Morning Pack, it is converted to a multi-functional facial mask that produces marvelous effects after a few seconds of massaging.

The facial mask formula consists of fermented black tea and pure Laminaria Japonica extracts, giving the skin dewy and beaming by revitalizing the skin with a nutrition boost.

My Clarins Barocco Christmas Look

.

.

This Christmas, I’m going to create a chic look using Limited Edition Clarins Barocco Christmas Make-up Collection that comprises of Eye Colour Trio, Face Palette, Rouge Prodige and Shimmering Gold Powder.

I did a trial and I actually like what I have created, something natural and subtle. It is a lot different from the model (with smoky eyes) featured on this collection who looks vogue and sexy.

Makeup is fun! You can create your ‘own’ look using the same makeup collection too! Set your own creative limits!

.

BAROCCO Eye Colour Trio – S$64

Contents : 1.5g – 0.05oz.

With this trio shades, I can create a “smoky” effect and different looks for both day and night. I can combine, layer or blend together to suit my mood.

I especially like the ultra-fine, easy-to-apply texture and the bronze golden shade. This Eye Colour Trio contains two essential accessories for impeccable eye make-up: a large mirror and a double-tipped foam applicator, one to shade and blend, the other shaped for more precise application on the eye contour and eyelid crease.

.

BAROCCO Face Palette – S$64

Contents : 13g – 0.45oz.

This BAROCCO Face Palette comes in a combination of two shades, with a scroll motif in pinky-peach on a sandy-beige background that leaves a natural radiance pink on my skin. Love the soft and fine texture!

.

BAROCCO Rouge Prodige – S$35

Contents : 3g – 0.1oz.

This BAROCCO Rouge Prodige lipstick comes in one shade (No.130 Barocco). I actually like the intense deep colour and it’s quite long lasting too.

.

BAROCCO Shimmering Gold Powder – S$70

For Face and Decollete

Contents : 36g – 1.2oz.

These delicate little nuggets that dusted with golden pearl beautifully enhance my neck and arms with sparkling reflections as the powder catches the light. Love the mini black soft puff and the light fine golden powder. A must-have for Christmas bash!

.
