A Better Florist Floral Arrangement Class


20171111_170749_mh1511075826839

I was invited to A Better Florist for their floral arrangement class last Saturday! I was really excited as I had been wanting to attend floral arrangement for the longest and most classes were super expensive ($150++)! A Better Florist class is really affordable at only $32 – $42.25!

I’ll let you in my little secret. My childhood dream was actually to be a florist! LOL! I think it was because flowers are really beautiful and colourful. Which girl can resist flowers <3

In the lesson, we are working on pink roses and pink carnations! Two of the sweetest flowers ever! 20171111_153146_mh1511075642801

I had a relaxing time “blooming” the carnations! I peel the leave that envelops the carnation (just like a banana) gently and fumble the petals to make it bloom! It was really therapeutic!

A beautiful bouquet will not be complete with the filler flowers! LOL, my eyes were lusting more for the fillers flowers though!

I was also really mesmerised by these “forget-me-not”! I love how there is a twinkle of white flower among the deep purple ones! Nature is indeed magically!20171111_153407_mh1511075705705

Here is our trainer of the day! It must be wonderful to work within flowers everyday!!!! *ENVY* She taught us the techniques of the more modern flowers arrangement style which is the open fan style. We have to hold up the flowers in our hands layer by layer to achieve the fan effect. It took quite a bit of patient and adjustment since most of us tend to hold the stalk tightly and they looked cramped together! 😛 Thank you for being so patient with us and giving us suggestions on how to complete our bouquet!

Here is my first humble floral arrangement!! Haha, i was really into the fillers so much but this is my personal preference and style! I think I did quite a good job even though this is my first time yeah?! I hereby name this cute bouquet “Kiyora Dream”. LOL!

Happiest radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.

Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon and Brow Pencil

revlon-crayon-eyebrow-1

Latest addition to the Revlon Colorstay line, these new bold, face-framing arches Brow Crayon is buildable and blendable with a unique waterproof formula for up to 24 hours wear! TBH, i thought these were contour sticks instead of eyebrow makeup. LOL!

4 shades at $19.90 each:

  • Blonde
  • Dark Brown
  • Soft Brown
  • Granite

Available at:

Selected Watsons, Guardian, Sasa, major department stores, lazada.sg for limited period only

revlon-crayon-eyebrow-2

The shade that suits me the most is soft brown as I prefer my eyebrow to look lighter than my hair colour. Blonde is definitely too faint for my healthy skin colour 😛

revlon-crayon-eyebrow-3

Without and with Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon!

I like how just one swipe and I can create this bold yet natural eyebrow. The crayon may be wax texture but it turns powdery upon application. This is a great eyebrow tool to use for makeup beginners! However, you have to make sure that you got your brows trimmed!

*******************

revlon-pencil-eyebrow-1

I also received the full set of Revlon Colorstay Brow Pencil! Thank you Revlon Singapore!!

The Revlon Colorstay Brow Pencil has a 3-in-1 usage, fill, define and tame browns in 2 easy steps! Fill and define brows with the angled tip, then you can soften your brows with the blending tool on the other end of the tip. This Brow Pencil is has a waterproof formula that will last up to 24 hours!

4 shades at $19.90 each:

  • Blonde
  • Soft Brown
  • Auburn
  • Soft Black

Available at:

Selected Watsons, Guardian, Sasa, major department stores, lazada.sg

revlon-pencil-eyebrow-2

You can see as compared to the Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon, the Revlon Colorstay Brow Pencil definitely looks sharper and bolder. This is great if you are going for the powerful wonder woman look!

Revlon Insta-Fix and Insta-Blush

revlon-instafix-instablush.jpg

Stick foundation, contour/ highlighting and blushers are getting really popular thanks to their compact size and quick fix ability! There isn’t a need for a puff or brush or beauty blender when applying stick makeup; all you need is your finger tips! It is so much more convenient especially if you are in a rush or traveling! (I like to pack as little things as possible!)

I was really tempted to get the Revlon Insta-Blush when I saw them in the store because the colours look really stunning especially Candy Kiss! Thank you Revlon Singapore for sending them over! Look at how blinding the 2 Instafix highlighters are! The Insta-blush came a lot more pigmented than I expected. #lol Btw, have you read my entry on Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolour?

Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick S$26.90

These 2 highlighting sticks feature Revlon’s special light filtering technology that creates a natural radiant glow from pearls to boost your skin’s luminosity! It is lightweight and has a super smooth formula that glides onto skin without looking streaky at all. The stick format allows precise application be it on the nose bridge, above the cheekbones or abov the cupid bow! It is really easy to control and perfect for highlighting beginners!

revlon instafix highlighter review

Revlon Instafix Highlighting Stick Pink Light

Available in Pink Light (white and silver pearls)—– best for light to medium skin tones, and Gold Light (golden pearls)—– best for medium to deep skin tones. I used Pink Light for the demo and picture above; Gold Light for the below photo together with Insta-Blush in Berry Kiss! Due to my healthy colour skin tone, I definitely suit Gold Light more! I like the peachy/ gold shade that gives a really radiant cheekbone! Can I say that I live for the Gold Light! <3 By the way, I was using Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolour in HD Adobe for both looks unknowingly. 😛

Revlon Instafix Highlighting Stick Gold Light and Insta-Blush Candy Kiss

Revlon Instafix Highlighting Stick Gold Light and Insta-Blush Candy Kiss

Let’s move on to the Insta-Blush S$25.90 which are available in 4 colours suited for different skin tones:

  • Rose Gold Kiss – Fair skin
  • Candy Kiss – Light skin
  • Nude Kiss – Medium skin
  • Berry Kiss – Deep skin

Insta-Blush features a luxurious cream to powder formula with unqiue mica-coated pigments to diffuse light for a naturally kiss of colour on the cheeks.

Look how pigmented the Insta-Blush in Candy Kiss is with just one gentle swipe! My skin tone is considered Medium skin but Candy Kiss still came out bold! I tried Rose Gold Kiss on my face but… yeah, it doesn’t show up on my skin. *Cries* I really love the shimmer when I swatch it! But I still have 3 colours to create 3 different looks!

revlon instafix pink light and instablush candy kiss

Instafix Berry Kiss is most suited for Medium skin which is my skin tone! It does look like my cheeks are naturally flushed in comparison to Candy Kiss ! On my lips is Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolour in HD Blossom.

revlon instafix highlighter berry kiss

Instafix Berry Kiss is best suited for deep skin tone so I look kinda more healthy and sporty which I adore too! It is perfect to use as a contour colour too! I am using Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolour in HD Sunset.

 

Thank you Revlon Singapore once again!! I received even moreeeeee eyeshadows, eyebrow crayon and pencils from them.

Insta-Blush and Instafix Highlighter are available at selected Watsons and Guardian

RuleR Singapore – Japanese Hair Salon in Raffles Place

Visited Japanese Hair Salon RuleR Singapore to bid goodbye to my yellowish (colouring), dry (treatment) and unruly (cut) hair! ✌ All hairstylist are Japanese and no problem for language barrier as they can speak good English!

I alighted at Raffles Place Mrt and went by “Exit G” towards Circular Road. Ruler Singapore is located at the Shop Houses  in Boat Quay. I took about 7 minutes walk to reach.

It is super easy to notice RuleR Singapore since you can see the beautiful, sophisticated and Japanese style interior from the full glass doors!

I love how the interior looks like. The natural elements and earth colours make me feel calm, serene and welcoming. Each seat has a wooden blind so you can have privacy too! 😀 Continue reading

7haramy1sttint3

This intensed striking red lip tint is nothing like a normal tint! The colour is super long-lasting and kept the colour on my lips even after meals! Just awesome colour for Chinese NewYear! I just find this a little too thick when I first applied which I am not so used to.

althea6

Last but not least, what caught my eyes immediately when I opened the Althea Christmas box are these 3D Shape Shading and Highlighter palettes from W. Lab. Such cute and interesting packaging yeah!

Mediplus-Gel – One Step Skincare

How many skincare steps or products do you have? 5? 4? 3?

I used to overload my skin with many bottles of facial lotions, emulsions, serums and creams thinking that the more products I slap on my face the better it will be! The result? My skin became sensitive and clogged due to using too many products and WRONG products! I had to go for monthly facial treatment to treat my sensitivity and clogged skin. 🙁

After treating my sensitivity, I have been looking for a product that is light, moisturizing, and does not overload my skin that will cause outbreak!
