It has been more than 3 years I kept my tresses untouched, except for the occasional less than an inch trims. It took me quite some time before being able to cut the seriously damaged parts off, which is about 3 inch. It may not look any different for some but for people with really long hair, it makes a huge difference. I'm glad I did it anyway~ 

My mane is managed by Wayne Tang from Essensuals Bugis since I was 19, that's 5 years back anyway!

Feels great to be back on track! Chinese New Year this year seems to be particularly long for me. On top of the long weekend, somehow it just seems that there are so much more gatherings as compared to any other years. I find myself dead tired almost everyday from visitings. I ate so much snacks, I flinch when I see them now. Every other day I wake up with this great sense of guilt staring at a pile of unshot apparels and the raw unedited folders of pictures on my desktop. It is amazing how just one week of rest could mess up my work schedule, my brain and unleash the laziness in me. This is the only set of pictures I was able to sit down and edit for hours ever since CNY celebrations started. I blame it on the high in the sugar.  :/
Here's a series featuring 3 outfits from Rackspaceproject, they are a spree site and sprees have closed for the month of Febuary, they are resuming in March. For exact dates you have to check them on FB or on site.
1. Mandarin collar baby doll dress
simply love loose fit clothings
2. Killin' it tee
Right now I just want to kill all the fats that have formed with all those CNY snaking!
3. Hoodie oh Hoodie
This is a really really loose fit hoodie, it's not even normal baggy~
I like it though.
So well here you have it the first style post which I have a super hard time getting my ass sited in front of the desktop for hours ever since CNY. I hope you like the visuals and I promise much more to come, travel posts too!
I'm not quite sure when is Rackspaceproject opening their next Spree, you've just got to watch their Facebook/ website. Links are provided below!

Basking in the sun is something i really love to do! But i really hate how tan I can become just within minutes. My kind of tan is never what one would desire. It is not a healthy gold tan, it is those that looks dirty. I use to go sun tanning every other day at my younger days hoping for that gorgeous tan, have given up on that and decided to be on the fair side. It wasn't easy either. I have avoided the sun, stopped swimming in the noon and basically cut down a lot of activities that involves me being in the sun directly. After a couple of years I just could not take being indoors all the time, I decided to invest on whitening pills(Hakubi) and oral sunblocks(heliocare). I cannot tell a significance difference but comparing my older photos to the present, I do see quite a bit of difference. Maintaining skin fairness requires a lot of patience and discipline. Other than oral pills, sunblock is a MUST MUST MUST! Not just the face but body as well. 

It can be quite a chore having to take 2 different types of pills everyday at different timings for the sake of whitening. I came to know of Lyco-White from IDS clinic a few months back and things just got much easier! A combination of oral sunblock and whitening, just 3 pills once a day at my convenience! I've ditched my Hakubi and Heliocare ever since I started Lyco-White and now I'm on my fourth bottle! I haven't exactly gone fairer but I love how it maintains my skin tone and prevents sun burns. I have gone for a 2 weeks beach vacation last Dec and as compared to all my previous trips, it is great to see that I'm just a tone darker from exposing myself to two weeks of scorching sun in Phuket. I would have been 3-4 tones darker if it is not for Lyco-White.

My Whitening regime now consists of Lyco-White, C+ and S2 sunblock. Discipline is the key to beauty I would say. 

(**Quick tips for home remedy whitening**)
-Apply fresh lemon juice on body after shower and leave it on for 15 mins, then shower off with water.

-Lemon juice might be a little too strong for the face. Try egg white! It is a little smelly though.
Separate egg white from yolk, apply egg white on clean face, leave to dry. Wash off with clear water.

These methods might not work for everyone, try at your own risks but it works for me.  ;)

I have never understood lip colours. Why the need to change your lip colour?

I have only started to appreciate lip colours when I grew older and started doing shoots. The correct make up, hair and wardrobe plays a big part in setting up a certain vibe and direction A correct lip colour completes the entire look and brings out different the personalities.
Switching up lip colours can really make a difference to your entire outfit. You can also somewhat guess one’s personality by the lip colour they always choose.

I have put together different outfits, hair and make up to bring out the different vibes that each colour could provide. Will talk about how I feel about the quality of these lip colours later on~
01    Nearly Nude

The nude is basically what I use on a daily basis, I like to keep it plain and simple.
02    Wild Pink

The colour that screams happy!
03    Siren Red

Red is always a symbol of sexiness and bold. A classic beauty~
04    Mystic Rose

The mystic rose as the name suggest gives off a mysterious vibe, a tinge of girly-ness and a tinge of seductive-ness. I never thought this would be a colour I would fall in love with but I did. I have been using this colour in most of my recent shoots.
05    Sassy Orange
I’m not sure about your views with this colour but to me it feels pretty eclectic mixed with a little madness, in a good way~

06    Exotic Wine

    Actual colour is tad bit darker and slightly purple-lish. Poisoness colour but hell yeah!

Let’s now talk about the quality of the SilkyGirl Go Matte Lipcolor. It is a heavyweight colour but feels lightweight and with a matte finish. Formulated with Shea Butter, Saffflower Oil and Papaya extract. Sounds Yummy! Fragrance Free and not tested on animals. The colour stayed throughout and even after my usual photo shoots of 2-3hrs. I didn’t have to touch up in between. It does wear off a little but it stains the lip so I can’t really see a major colour slip even after a few hours. Colour pigment comes off easy, pigment stick is stury and does not break off easy. I have often encountered breaking the entire pigment stick off because I exerted too much force while applying. So far so good with the Silky Girl Go Matte Lipcolor.

For those who are not a huge fan of Matte colours and would like to have some shine on their Lips, SilkyGirl also has a range called the Colour Junkie Lip polish. A series with playful colours and a vinyl finish.
Though I’m not really into gloss but I tried the colours and have them placed side by side so you can see the series in a single picture. 

I personally would opt for the Matte look, what about you? Matte or shine?
