Attention soap lovers in Singapore! I’m so pleased to introduce you to Soap Paradise, a one-of-a-kind handmade artisan soap store. Yeah, no need to join sprees to order from Chagrin Valley in US as you can now get beautifully designed and may I add, sweet smelling handmade soaps locally. I won’t say I’m a huge fan of soaps but I do take quite a bit of interest when they look and smell good. And the ones from Soap Paradise look and smell like delicious yummy cakes to me!
Hey VivaBellas! Hope you’re having a good weekend so far. I know some of you are traveling as you’ve mentioned on my Facebook page. So did you buy anything from the airport or do you plan to buy something when you return? I wanted to check out some items at Perfumes & Cosmetics in Changi Airport prior to leaving for my last trip but you know what, I never got down to it. Actually, it sounds kind of strange to want to buy something prior to leaving for a trip isn’t it? But it’s not so if you consider the substantial savings you’ll get to enjoy off your favorite beauty brands.
Finally, I’ve visited Beauty Emporium at Dempsey Road after wanting to check the place out since their opening. It’s not a convenient place to head to unless you drive or take a cab and if not for the the invite of Spa Espirit to attend their Essential Oils Workshop last Saturday, I’m not sure if I’ll ever head that direction. Dempsey is a place I associate with teak wood furniture and carpets but it has now come alive with rows of eateries and restaurants. And Beauty Emporium is located at Blk 8D, just behind Ben & Jerry’s.
I had some fun on Sunday visiting Lolita at Marina Square, a makeup store that specializes in custom blend mineral foundation and makeup. I think this store will intrigue a number of you who have had problems getting your foundation to match your skin color. In fact, I learnt that many of us tend to “force” our skin tone to suit the makeup color when we should really be paying for makeup that suit our skin tone.
