Wonect’s Final Box!

Wonect sent me their final Wonect Starlet Beauty Box in January, which I’m really happy and thankful about. It has been a great 6 months! There are three items in the final box: Heroine Make Ten-made-todoke Mascara; Daiso Japan Reusable Silicon Mask Cover; MILBON Elujuda MO 120ml . And here’s my review! The Heroine Make Ten-made-todoke Mascara. Introduction The “Heroine Make” brand is raved for its eye products–eyeliner and mascara. Established in 2005 under ISEHAN in Japan, this brand has an interesting brand story. “Heroine” refers to the woman or girl who is the protagonist of a movie or a book, and “make” refers to “make-up”. The idea behind “Heroine Make” is to ensure that every lady will always look like a powerful star even if she cries or get caught in the rain. Always powerful, beautiful and picture-perfect with Heroine Make! This mascara features the following benefits: Volumizing; Lengthening– contains 5mm long fibres. Waterproof and smudge proof; Easy to remove. And yes, it does its job well. I personally have really short and sparse lashes (the …

[Review] Hair Cut and Colouring at Bump RiverValley by Aventa.

Hey guys! Today’s post is done in collaboration with Beauty Undercover. I came back to Singapore to host my friend’s wedding and went to Bump @RiverValley to do a hair cut + colouring. The staff at Beauty Undercover were kind enough to help me take photographs to document the whole process. Location: Bump RiverValley by Aventa is located at Mohamed Sultan Road, so it is a little far away from the train station if you are walking. I cabbed there. Is there WIFI at the hair salon? The answer is yes, so you won’t be bored to death. Ask for the WIFI password at the counter. What is so unique about the whole experience? SERVICE! I think the Japanese are the best in service– there is this concept of “omotenashi“, which means having pride in having excellent customer service. You are always made to feel very important at the salon. Enjoy this post–it is a stage-by-stage review! So here is how I look like before the haircut.  Stage #1: Consultation The tencho Sone actually gave me a consultation before doing anything to …

Sakura-themed weddings.

Have you ever found something you could do forever? I’d found it. Um, and it’s a weird sort of feeling. This post is going to be incoherent. Today I was thinking about Sakura-themed weddings, and the first thought that came to my mind were weddings at Kichijo-ji, one of my favorite places in Japan. When I was there in 2010, all I could think of is my ex-boyfriend, who’s Japanese. I only had/have two BFs in my whole life, lol. The nihonjin ex is super good looking, super rich, eloquent, charming, 185cm hehe and super subtle. So I remembered walking to the bridge and thinking of him, while I was looking at the sakuras. We broke up because of different foundations in communication + I was insecure when I was younger. This is how Kichijoji looks like, in full bloom. (Source) People change. Things fade, emotions fade, memories fade. Then memories die, and sometimes you can’t even remember who’s who, or what happened. I think however, beauty at that moment lives on, and on, and then you …

恋愛・人生

“The bond between husband and wife is a strong one. Suppose the man had hunted her out and brought her back. The memory of her acts would still be there, and inevitably, sooner or later, it would be cause for rancor. When there are crises, incidents, a woman should try to overlook them, for better or for worse, and make the bond into something durable. The wounds will remain, with the woman and with the man, when there are crises such as I have described. It is very foolish for a woman to let a little dalliance upset her so much that she shows her resentment openly. He has his adventures–but if he has fond memories of their early days together, his and hers, she may be sure that she matters. A commotion means the end of everything. She should be quiet and generous, and when something comes up that quite properly arouses her resentment she should make it known by delicate hints. The man will feel guilty and with tactful guidance he will mend …
