CLICKBAIT?! SHOCKER?! YOU MUST BE KIDDING?!
Nope, none of the above. All facts and truths here, tried & tested. You can now get abs literally just by laying down! Have a short 30 minutes to spare? Pop in, take a half an hour nap and let technology work for you. Well, at least that was what I did and I saw shockingly amazing results!
A little backstory before we delve into this mysterious world of EMSCULPT®. Well, I have always been on the slightly meatier side (blame genetics!) so the gym is no stranger to me. As much as I hate strength & cardio trainings, I have to force myself to complete at least 3 hours of workouts per week just to maintain my figure. Workouts, fad diets, you name it, I have tried it. Imagine my curiosity when I found out that a machine can actually "DO" your workout for you without you physically breaking out a sweat! I knew I had to give it a try. Lo & behold, this procedure definitely lived up to its name and I think this is the next big thing for those who are always dreaming of em' rock hard abs!
It is the season of gifting and celebrations! Christmas has always held a special place in my heart and I was always looking forward to it as a child. I remember watching programmes on the television picturing families huddling together in front of the fire pit with the joyous bells of laughters of kids ringing across the background. Christmas is simple and filled with so much love and happiness. Oh, and let's not forget the magical element of Santa! Who believes in Santa? I still do and I always hope Santa would visit me one day.
Side note, it's the 21st century so nobody goes through Christmas without gifts. It has become the center of attraction for the entire holiday and to be honest, who would ever say no to gifts? This time, I've rounded up a couple of top favourites to make your shopping easier. Of course, Christmas is all about love, giving, sharing and spending quality time with your loved ones. There is no need to break your bank to make another "happy". And let's not forget to always be kind to the less fortunate. Something small to us might change another's outlook in life. Ramblings aside, let's start! I promise, I'll be typing lesser this time round. Enjoy! ;)

REVIEW: Look & Feel Younger Amidst Your Busy Schedule With Eucerin® NEW Hyaluron-Filler Overnight Treatment & Hyaluron Filler Range
Being at the mercy of time, I often find myself in denial, thinking that I can always be young. Sadly, some truths can never be hidden and I am definitely not shy of having one (or two) wrinkles slowly making its way to my face. I also see my skin looking dull and appearing older than it is. On top of that, due to the hectic pace of my ultra packed schedule and many late nights, I can NEVER find the energy to commit to an extensive night skincare regime. Usually, I will only slap on a thin layer of sleeping mask when my skin is feeling dry. I know, I am not the best with my skin, but I promise I am working on it!
That being said, there is finally some light on my constant lookout for a fuss-free night-time skincare product to treat the worry about my dull ageing skin. Eucerin® recently launched a 2-in-1 Hyaluron-Filler Overnight Treatment that not only sloughs away the signs of time, it also hydrates the skin. Eucerin® has been around the skincare market for a WHOPPING 130 YEARS so I'm sure they know what works and what doesn't! This dermatological brand is renowned for creating efficacious skincare that works even for sensitive skin. Sounds too good to be true? Read on and be amazed, the Hyaluron-Filler Overnight Treatment has been on my top-shelf ever since I tried it for the first time!
Perched amidst the dreamy Himalayas, we have Bhutan, one of the most exclusive country to explore. The top question that I got from everyone was, "Why Bhutan?" Let's just say, I had a calling and I answered. The rest was history and Bhutan has officially topped all my wanderlust adventures around the world.
Prior to my trip, I had no idea what to expect and little information about this magnificent country was available online. Luckily, I was recommended Dragon Trails Tour after doing a vote on Instagram & it was honestly the best decision I have ever made. FYI, independent travel is forbidden in Bhutan therefore you will need to go through some form of an agency to get your trip sorted. I actually tried a couple concurrently but felt that Dragon Trails Tour were the most sincere in making my Bhutan experience a memorable one.
Today's post is going to be one of the most highly requested travel post because everyone is so curious about this "exotic" country. I will try my best to fill you in and give all the tips that I have but trust me, the experience is unique to each & is definitely not one to be missed. I went there with an open heart and now it is filled with beautiful memories. I can't wait to go back.
Makeup removal, a habitual thing for all beauty addicts. With the surge of waterproof & long-lasting makeup in the market, makeup removal has certainly become a hassle if you are not using the right products. What more, everyone has different skin concerns so it is almost impossible to find a one-size-fits-all wonder.
Having tested out a whole bunch of makeup removers, I sure do have a good idea on what works and what doesn't. Imagine my joy when I attended the exciting launch event of Bifesta's NEW Cleansing Lotions earlier this year! Boasting a whopping range of 5 different variations to target different skin type, the new Bifesta Cleansing Lotion definitely did shake up the beauty industry with their exciting revamp! Now 12x stronger to remove our high performance makeup, it still promises to be gentle on the skin. Not convinced? Read on as I put this new cleansing lotion to the test!
Lo and behold, the HIGHLY anticipated blog post that took me forever to write. You would think I am used to showing my bare (horrifying) skin even after being on social media for a good year or two. Turns out, immortalising the scary acne-filled predicament of my skin is probably one of the toughest decision I have ever done. Y'all know, acne is literally the bane of my existence and I am constantly so embarrassed by the state of my skin that I would NEVER leave the house without concealing my blemishes. Someone even referred to my face as a Magnum. If you do not understand, here's why:
Yup, tell me about it. Coincidentally, this is my favourite Magnum flavour too so props to a good reminder on how sad my skin was every time I take a bite out of this delicious goodness! Acne definitely packed a punch against my self-confidence. I did EVERYTHING to solve my acne problem and today, I will be sharing with you what works, and the other methods you should never waste your time on. Even till now, I still catch myself being overly critical about my physical appearance. Hence, writing this post not only serves as a reminder to myself, but to let you guys know that you should take a breather & be kinder to yourself! ♥
Before I begin, I just want to highlight that acne is YOUR BODY telling you that it has enough. Enough of all the stress you put it through, enough of all the junk you ingest & enough of self-inflicted emotional/physical harm to yourself. There are many causes of acne, be it diet, stress, skincare etc; YOU need to find your cause and work towards solving that issue. Throughout the recent 2 years, I have discovered different causes of my acne and I will be sharing my journey along the way.
