Singapore, November 8, 2012 – Singapore’s favourite number one health and beauty retailer Watsons today broke new grounds in the retail industry with the re-opening of its all-new flagship store at Ngee Ann City. Aiming to be the ‘Pulse of Retail’, the largest Watsons store in Singapore not only offers a plethora of beauty and healthcare items in line with the latest trends, but also features innovative retail concepts for a more engaging and interesting shopping experience.
At end of April, I spent almost to a thousand buying SKIN INC facial package. (This is how i spend $ when I get bonus??? =_=") Well, how do I got into using SKIN INC (short form SKINC)? It all started from this mini 5ml Hyaluronic Acid Serum.... You can read more about my SKINC purchases HERE. Well, everytime I goes back for facial, the BA will recommend me to buy more products or facial packages as they are always running promotions. I'm a sucker for sales/ promo/ free gifts!!! Darn it!
Anywoo, this time round, I spent $988 buying 7 Customised Infusion facial and was given 3 free Serums (base on personal needs) + 1 free MDD Bottle (I chose green bottle).
Okay, what is Customised Infusion and what is MDD bottle? Basically Customised Infusion facial is, of course a customised facial. By using up to 3 types of serums (depending on skintype) combined and using a machine running currents through your skin to better to stimulate the cells and enable them to absorb the ingrsdients efficiently to the dermis layer. The whole facial takes about an hour. It is best to have the customised Infusion done every 3-4 weeks to see quick results. Originally cost $198 per facial. MDD (My daily dose) bottle is just an empty coloured bottle where they give customers to mix their own 'potion' (ie, serums) into it and use that in their daily skincare routine. Originally cost $10 per MDD bottle.
I find that what's best of SKINC serums are: - has 0% Paraben - no weird smell, totally no scent! - has encapsulated active ingredients - Non-oily or sticky
The 'boo' of SKINC serums are: - expensive (=_=") for such a small bottle (Originally cost $128 per bottle of serum) - doesn't indicate % of active ingredients (The BA says their R&D team doesn't want to reveal the %, and I was like WAT?! -_-")
Here, they picked for my skin the following serums: - Collagen [Solves wrinkles, lines, ageing skin] - Hyaluronic Acid [Solves Dehydrated skin] - Placenta [Solves Pigmentation, freckles, dullness]
Halloween!!!!! What does it remind you of??? YES....SCARY, BLOODY, GHOST, GORE, TRICK OR TREAT, PUMPKINS....... PARTY!!!
Well, there isn't much partying for me this time round. More like dressing up, walking around, taking pics, Puri, and eat.... hhhaax~ (Isn't it what I always do? -_-)
The left pic shows 2 girls wearing Waloli (Japanese Traditional clothes with Lolita Fashion) and that's basically what I wore on Halloween night. The picture was found on A+LIDEL official website long ago but the site's not available now. From my understanding, the picture was drawn by a Japanese artist and his/her pictures inspired A+LIDEL to make costumes from the drawings into real clothings. TO view of A+LIDEL fashion, see HERE.
I found this picture 4 years ago and immediately, love this pic so much that I decided to custom make the waloli set with all the ready fabrics I could get. So, is it called Dressup? Or... Cosplay? I feel its not exactly cosplaying the characters as I do not have the exact prints and masks. So I'll call it as Dressing up but following the picture pose. ^_^"
Here's a studio (the studio is my home..haha..) shot of me and my friend in the costume took almost 4 yrs ago.. Don't ask what the hell is EnSu Dolls! I forgot why i name that! (-_-") Basically its the same pose with different backgrounds! hahahx~ I'm THAT great with photo manipulation. =p~ *prouds* Note: the chinese characters on the shoulder area are photoshopped in, they are not printed on the costume. And a silly funny pic of us:
Halloween OOTD And on Halloween, we intend to make some changes to our outfit... We are the WALOLI DEAD DOLLS!!! (I look so dead, why my friend Nessa look so ALIVE! *headdesk*) And a MAJOR wrong wrong thing I did is to put that YELLOW FLOWER ON MY HEAD! (*headdesk x 999*)
And then, anINCIDENT HAPPENED! While Nessa & me were hanging just outside ION Sephora, taking pictures by the stretch of empty walkway, we were approached by a cute lady & her guy friend looking all so excited with big eyes, asking where we buy our costume from. She complimented that our costumes are really pretty and touched our sleeves. Lolx.. Then as soon as I told her its custom made, she looked so sad! Then she gets enthu again and ask where we got the fabrics from, I told her its from overseas. And she turn sad again! XD~ She reminds me of PUPPY!!! OMG!!~ So cute! hahhax~ She complimented our costumes again and then she went off waving goodbye smiling~ ^.^v~ Sometimes its things like this which happens once in awhile on something that we made effort to do, and we get true compliments from strangers that made our day. =D ♥♥♥ Isn't it??? (I just lost a $50 note during my work on 30th Friday and 31st I got this compliment, it fills the hole in my heart ♥)
The 4 of us! (Di, Nessa, Sel & me!) I look damn 'dead' here...hahax! I love both Sel & Di's dressups even though both of them are rather different genre. Sweet & Cool~ We are all Fashion Junkies!
I know I'm bad.. Nessa really looked so stun in the first pic.. xD But I wanted that photo so badly as I have that Sluty look which I L♡VE!! See the witch hat? Its Mi (Witch)! I've really got that witchy look there~ The big leopard ribbon on my head is ♥!! (Like Lady Gaga! XD)
Waloli Dead Doll LOTD
My friend like the silver tail I did to my eye, but saded that it didn't turn out visible in face pics.
And that's a whole lot of makeup!!! ARGHH.... My face was super dry at the end of the day =_=" But ♥Neutrogena Eye & Lip Remover♥ is always here to save my day with just 1 SWIPE! And all eye makeup together with the fake lashes will come off! =D~
So how did you spend you HALLOWEEN??? ^.^
P/S: I don't know why... Onsugar kept refreshing my page and I retyped the 2nd time. But luckily on the 3rd refresh, I got all the HTML saved in my desktop Notepad... PHEW~~~
Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

Well, before I go on with my Hauls.. I just want to tell everyone that I'd signed up 1 dancing workshop happened just earlier this month. I guess besides my primary school times which I took part in a one time stage hawaii dancing performance wearing straw skirts and holding pongpongs, this should be the 2nd time in my life learning how to dance.
I love listening pop, rock, R&B music and recently everyone's going gaga over (besides Lady Gaga)... its none other than KPOP, known as Korean Pop.
And what's the Hu and the HA about this dance workshop? It's about SNSD RUN DEVIL RUN Dance workshop!!! If you hadn't seen how they dance, play the following Vid!!
This dance step is NOT EASY OKKKKkkkk.. (for a 2nd timer like me) At least I find that SNSD "Oh!" even though appears difficult, still is easier than Run Devil Run! And of course, GEE! is the easiest. Heh.. Why can't they teach something simpler.. =_= Any hoo, Let's take a look at the studio @ my HQ... The trainer was invited to our HQ Dance studio to teach a bunch of lazy bums employees like us.. And dancing is for ANY AGE! =p (Arrows: THat's mi!)
After 2 hours of dancing, we managed to complete first half of the song.
It suppose to be a 8 weeks dance course to complete the whole song with perfect dance steps, but we are no pros so we just anyhow~ complete it within 1 workshop.
Apparently I find that the workshop "NO SWEAT!" (Plus the studio was air-conditioned)...
.....until the 3rd day, my muscles ached like nobody business!!
Phew~~ Dancing sure can kill some calories, stretch some stiff muscles and improve my blood circulation!! I soooo wanting to join Hip hop dance but my work doesn't allow me to have more personal time for my interests.
Darn, work sure SUX big time!
Here, was my OOTD during the dance workshop, but I was wearing trackpants earlier before I changed to jeans. The pants are super long that I kept stepping on the ends and tripping myself over. ^_^"
Oh ya, the dance trainer is from Danz People, see their FB here! The trainer is sooo sooo cute & hilarious! I didn't catch her name though. At first sight, I tot I saw Sara... But I didn't wear specs, so the similarity percentage might be only 1% =p~
Now, ON with DA HAULS!!~
MAC Haul: Superslick Liquid Eye Liners in Gold & Silver! Many many Thanks again to Kim for helping me purchase at DFS when she went to Changmai! I spent $66 overall.. So, I did saved a few dollars did I? o_O But i hadn't include registered mail yet.. hhahax~
Topshop Lipstick: in Desert: $19 ZEA Plumper Lip Stick in Rose Vintage: $13.90 ZEA Plumper Lip Gloss: $9.90 One swatch of Desert, I immediately want it! It reminds me of MAC freckletone lipstick which I dropped it into the toilet bowl.. u_U" However Topshop lipstick is very dry... while ZEA's very moisturising! Its a good buy!
In my previous collective haul, I bought a Ritzo Color Guard Hair Spray and the nozzle phailed on me.. TWICE! Lucky thing is that I tried on the spot when I exchanged for the 2nd Ritzo. Man, never again will I buy that brand from Ocean! And so I paid alittle more to get... L'Oreal Paris Professionnel Anti-Static IONIC Air fix techniart (Force 5): $13.50 (Phew~ what a long name..)
After reading AB's Nature Republic Ice Jelly Primer post.. I just had to try it too! Its not cheap if I were to think that the original price in Korea is only less than $10.. But to think such known brands products (like L'Oreal/Maybelline) to be sold in SG for the cost of $19.80 is rather reasonable. ^_^" Ice Jelly Primer Cherry: $19.80 SoapWort with Pomegranate Facial Wash: $10.90 Alaska Pure Ice Aqua Sun Cream SPF35: $21.90
Quite like the Ice Jelly Primer and now thinking to get the Blueberry one! Intially I only wanted the blueberry but it was out of stock! =( *hint hint na, help me get with the member card~ hahhax..* As for the Aqua Sun Cream, I keep getting residues on my face.. Till now, I have tried using different day skincare to see if I get the same results. Yap, up to now I still getting residues. =_= FYI, I still put on cream moisturiser before the Sun Cream, I will try not to put cream moisturiser next time and see how it works out. =)
Sasa Hauls~ Shiseido Eyelash Curler: $16.20 Cyber Colors Gemstone Aqua-base Pudding Foundation SPF20 PA++: $36.90
I had been lemming on this foundation for a looong time ever since it was launched! And finally I got it! Aside from this, I start lemming on its 2way cake too! The 2way has very pretty shimmers on it so nice! =D~ (no swatches though..u can only see it in my brain..)
The spatula comes with 2 different scoop design. The round side JUSTTTTT perfect for me to dig the content out of the Ice Jelly Primer! And then the flat scoop for the foundation~ One stone hit 2 birds. ^.^
Now for freebies! Na and me went to collect our dejavu Fiberwig (thickening) Mascara~ Its my first dejavu! It came with a very cute pretty pouch, a combi of coin purse with tissue holder.I like the pink furry accessory, will be using to hang on my bag or hp.. =p
Lasly, some hauls from overseas.. heh heh.. I will not get into details for these babies, as some of these are for someone special!! *wink wink* (~.^)
However, I will get into detail just for one part. Which is, how to check your product authenticity...? ( This only apply to products bought from this company: www.LMCZ.com ) As most of you know, there are zillions of fake/replica/duplicate/unauthentic (whatever you want to call it) products in China/Taiwan/HK/Korea etc etc.. But I must say the fake stuffs are more often than not, made in China. Believe or not, in China, there are also localised brands being replicated! Say for example, the infamous Chaarming Cat (Not spelt as 'Charming') products, part of LMCZ. They are rather famous in their own country that other people would want to replicate their products for their own benefits! So, the company came out with the Authentication stickers for every each of their product. You should be able to see the sticker pasted on the box or packaging, otherwise you are buying a fake. With the sticker, doesn't mean it is authentic, you need to check the number code printed in there on the LMCZ website. Following pic shows step by step tutorial on how to check your product authenticity.
Basically the same principle applys on the Windows software too, if you realised. ^_^
Just a thought, does anyone of you know how to go about doing a quick check on a perfume to see if its Genuine/Fake during your purchase? ^___^ Make a guess.
Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)
