When I was younger, I remember taking an air-conditioned bus with my mom to Orchard Road during the year-end festive period just to view the Christmas lightings. Because the bus we took was a loop service, we just enjoyed the view from within without having to alight. We probably did this together for three years – once, with my little nephew and another time with my grandmother, who was visiting from China. After that, Christmas lightings in Orchard were well, just lightings without any special significance to me.
Did the statue of liberty get shipped from New York to Singapore? But wait…this statue can move, plus she’s holding a Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 no less! So what’s this life size “statue” doing in the middle of Orchard Road? Well, she was part of the prop to the Kiehl’s 160th anniversary celebration at the ION Glass House yesterday. Good thing the weather was merciful and she was basking very well in the mild sunlight for a couple of hours without melting away.
Crabtree & Evelyn has just launched their new floral fragrance collection. On top of the Iris collection which I covered last September, the other fragrances are Lily, Lavender and Rosewater. And apart from Eau de Toilette you see here, body care and home fragrance products are also available.
So here’s Renee and Mag with me at Sephora on Tuesday morning, being dolled up and waiting to have our photos taken for the Urban feature. I actually wanted to take some behind the scenes shots but ended up too engrossed in conversations with the makeup artist and hair stylist and later on, being too shy to pose for pictures. Anyway, the clothes I wore were prepared by Urban. I have no idea what sort of look I took on, but if I added a headband and a cigarette holder, I could possibly pass off as a flapper. Heh.
