Beauty Review: Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner

I had heard many good things about the Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner prior to purchasing it. It is after all a cult favourite. But I always had a hard time justifying spending the money on it. However, when I was in the market for a new liquid eyeliner, I decided that now was the time to take that leap of faith to see if it was worth the splurge. First Impression of the Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner As with every Kat Von D product, the packaging has intricate gothic-esque details on it and is rather sturdy. The eyeliner casing is just the right size, making it easy-to-grip and apply. The brush has a nice pointy tip so that you could get down to the finest of lines. Super pigmented and opaque. Although it dries quick, it is quite buildable and doesn’t become clumpy. Pros Now I kid you not, but I was absolutely jaw-droppingly impressed with how unsmudgeable the Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner was. Most liquid eyeliners that I’ve tried, smudges within …

Beauty Review: Ere Perez Quinoa Water Foundation

Ere Perez is an Australian-owned company that produces natural and healthy beauty products. In the past, I did a first impressions of some of their new products at that time (which you can check out here) and fell in love with the brand! I recently received another package from them, and one of the products is the Ere Perez Quinoa Water Foundation (A$40). It is a new product of theirs and I was eager to test it out on my skin. Will it match my skin tone? Will it come out cake-y on my skin? What will the formula be like? Hmm… So many questions that needed to be answered. To be honest with you, I have never been a fan of using foundation as they are known to contain many different chemicals and nasties. Just the thought of that alone with the additional knowledge that the product will be caked on my face and clogging my pores for hours at a time really deterred me from using foundation. In addition to that, I have …

Lifestyle Review: Nilufer Tea – Bringing Nature into your Cup

If you have been following us for a while, you would know that we enjoy the finer things in life whilst remaining healthy and respectful of the environment. My personal favourite beverage is tea, and I do enjoy unwinding with a good cuppa. So, when we heard of Nilufer Tea, we were excited for the opportunity to work together. Nilufer Tea’s slogan is “Bringing Nature into your cup”, and this is evident as they focus on making quality tea whilst encouraging environmentally friendly practices. They are a social enterprise of sorts as they rely on small, independent farmers throughout Japan for their ingredients; hence, boosting employment opportunities in farming villages while encouraging the demand for sustainable and fair farm practices. Their herbs and flowers remain uncrushed and uncompressed; hence, ensuring that customers get a heightened experience with their blends. Every blend is free from artificial additives, preservatives, and pesticides. It certainly doesn’t hurt that every brew is so Instagram worthy! Each of Nilufer’s Herbal Blends contains different health benefits. The Ginger Rooibos has a spicy …

Review: Singapore’s Luxury Tallship, Royal Albatross

Docked along the waterfront of Sentosa, the Royal Albatross is a unique luxury tall ship that operates like an old-world ship. Batman fanatics may also be thrilled to know that the Royal Albatross was featured in ‘The Dark Knight’ (2008) as Bruce Wayne’s private yacht. The ship is about a 20-minute walk away from VivoCity if you are walking to Resort World Sentosa via the 700m long Sentosa Boardwalk. Our cruise started with apprehension as it started to rain just as we were pulling away from the docks of Sentosa. The crew were scurrying around to ensure that all passengers on board remained safe and dry despite the rain and heavy wind. But thank God that shortly after our voyage began, the rain came to a halt and the clouds began to clear up. The Royal Albatross was the perfect spot for photo ops, especially with the clear skies and kiss of a golden sunset. Shortly after we set sail, we approached the buffet line. The spread consisted salad, cold cuts, a variety of hot …

Food Review: Winestone @Mercure Singapore on Stevens

If you’ve been following us for a while, you would know that we love trying different foods and cuisines. So when we learned of Winestone, we were excited to try out their food as they serve a fair selection of Mediterranean dishes. Since opening its doors on the 22nd of January 2018, it has been an up and coming dining spot for couples and families alike. It is one of the many pods in the Oxley cluster surrounding Mercure and Novotel on Stevens. Winestone is aptly named as the name is derived from two prominent factors when dining at the establishment; they have a wide selection of wines and many of their meals are served on stone boards. Housing Mercure’s morning breakfast during the day, Winestone breaks off into an independent dining concept of its own after noon. We ordered a variety of different dishes to be shared amongst everyone on the table. To start, we were served an assortment of bread, such as their dark rye sour khubz and mini ciabatta bread, set above …

Beauty Review: Pixi Nourishing Sleep Mask

I was scrolling through Sephora’s phone app one day, when this Nourishing Sleep Mask caught my eye! The idea behind the Nourishing Sleep Mask is that it is used as the last step of your nighttime routine to “seal in” the products that you applied before it, like your serums and moisturiser. It provides a nutrient-rich veil of moisture while you sleep. The formula is packed with fatty acids to plump and regenerate, strengthening arganine , and fruit & flower oils to deeply soothe your skin. The treatment is supposed to leave your skin feeling silky-smooth to the touch and looking more plump. And the cherry on top? It’s paraben free too! So OF COURSE I had to put it to the test! (Can I still say… #IDidItForTheBlog?) I was excited to try this out as it was an opportunity for me to pamper my skin without having to put in that much effort. So here’s my first impression of the product… The smell was pleasant and nothing too overpowering. For some reason, I thought that it …

Food Review: Canopy @Bishan-AMK Park

Nestled among the lush greenery of Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park is Canopy Garden Dining. It is located at the part of the park between Bishan Road and Marymount Road, near the car park entrance along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 (just after Ang Mo Kio Street 32). The location itself is peaceful and unassuming, making it a great form of getaway from the bustling city whilst remaining accessible. It certainly doesn’t hurt that they serve up a wide range of brunch offerings to appease a variety of cravings. They have an alfresco dining area which immerses patrons in a garden dining experience amidst the integrated park space. The day that we visited Canopy was rather hot, so we opted to dine indoors instead. The interior itself is decked out with full-length glass windows allowing a generous dose of natural light to shine in (making it perfect for photos!) whilst giving you a view of the surrounding greenery. To cool us down from the hot weather outside, we ordered the green mint Italian Soda (S$7) and …
