I’m always drawn to cheongsams during the Chinese New Year season for some reason. Not so much to wear them but to ogle at them. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m also fond of featuring them! So this year I stumbled upon this Inner Circle CNY collection from Zalora with a modern twist. Very fashionable and may I add, real affordable. I’d to do a double take because I couldn’t believe the prices actually range from S$39.90 to S$69.90! And the quality doesn’t look so bad, going by the pictures alone.
I was planning to repurchase the Badger Aloe Vera Broad Spectrum SPF30 Zinc Oxide Sunscreen Lotion and had it parked in my shopping cart. Alas. When I finally came down to ordering about a week later, the item was no longer available at iHerb. So in the end, I ordered the Badger Aloe Vera SPF16 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Lotion instead. I figured that since I only wanted a sunscreen mainly for my neck and arms, I can do with a lower SPF for the time being.
Do you like buffet? Well, I don’t like them with the exception of one at a particular Japanese restaurant. It’s value-for-money with a good selection of food and I usually find myself heading for a second go. But today it’s not buffet I’m blogging about. Instead, I’m going to share with you five beauty products I gave a second go in recent months. Although they’ve not made it to my holy grail list of products yet but they’re worth highlighting simply because I don’t repurchase beauty products that easily given that I have a multitude of choices as a beauty blogger.
Happy New Year everyone! Hope you’re all having a blast so far! Somehow, it’s been quite hard to kickstart my blogging mojo and that’s why this late entry into the year. First, I wasn’t keen to discuss the usual R&R—reflections and resolutions—and second, I thought it’s kinda inappropriate to launch straight into the usual topics without some sort of accountability for the new year. HA! So instead of doing either, let me show off my best Christmas present—the Sony Nex-5TY ultra-compact digital camera with interchangeable lenses. This is my new toy that is going to help me fulfil my new year blogging resolution. (Okay, sounds like I contradicted myself but I promise you it’s just one resolution ^^ .)
I don’t think I’ve said it before but I’m kinda proud to be categorized in the league of the 40+ beauty and fashion bloggers. You would think that I’m embarrassed, given my past inhibitions about my age but the truth is, I’m not. I was just hesitant about revealing the numbers because I didn’t want my blog to come across as age-inclusive. I like to think that what I blog about can inspire women of varied ages plus I really don’t feel that old.
