Monday, November 16, 2015 :: Sephora For Christmas Shopping!
Have you seen my recent musings over at Snapchat (@thevgygirl)? You probably would have seen me attending an event held by Sephora in a cosy restaurant where I had the opportunity to preview a whole lot of new and unreleased makeup products available for purchase during the Christmas season. I even had the chance to build my own terrarium! So happy I finally got to do it hands-on! Have been fascinated by terrariums for the longest time and just what can be better than learning from Charles, the man behind Mossingarden (find him on IG @mossingarden). Always in love with his works!
Some of the makeup products caught my attention and my heart skipped a beat at their glorious colors and festive packaging. I am thinking about all the secret Santa games which I will be playing and the wonderful gifts I can get for my friends from Sephora's huge variety of holiday gifts. Shared some peektures over here for your viewing pleasure (seriously, who can say no to receiving beauty products for Christmas instead of the usual mugs, towels etc!?) and hope that will give you some ideas on your Christmas shopping!
In the peektures, you can see products from Too Faced, Stila, NudeStix (omg please check this brand out in January!), Burt's Bees and of course, Sephora in-house brand. Follow me on my snapchat as I reveal even more goodies inside my Sephora backpack!
Most of the products featured above are now available in Sephora for purchase so head on down and do your Christmas shopping while the stocks last! ;)

Thursday, November 5, 2015 :: Happiness is a gift from Lancome
My favourite routine, which has been ongoing for five years now - is to bring out the huge Christmas tree, spend time to decorating it, shop for gifts and lastly - wrapping candies and chocolates into cute little goodies bags at midnight for John and I to give away to our families, friends and colleagues on Christmas day.
Christmas is the best time of the year where you get wrapped up in the hunt for gifts, celebrating the spirit of togetherness over dinners with turkeys, decorating Christmas trees, throwing parties, attending church services, wrapping and opening gifts, and of course many more festive rituals that happen all over the world - it is like magic has sprinkled over all of us.
Happiness is an important value deeply embedded in Lancome's brand motto. Happiness is receiving a gift from Lancome in the form of their special festive sets.
Featuring Lancome's best selling Miracle fragrance in Miracle Eau De Parfum Prestige Set containing Miracle Body Lotion, Shower Gel and Parfum - a glorious set of fragrance products that I would love to receive as a gift. If you have not tried Miracle fragrance, indulge in a whiff over at the counters and I'm sure you will fall in love with its vibrant and sparkling scent!
Also featuring one of my favourite range of products here in a special festive set is the Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Duo Set in a thick luxurious red dust bag. What could be better than gifting your loved ones a highly raved range that can rejuvenate the skin's youth - for younger looking skin and well rested eye contours. I would say the cherry on top would be the thick luxe dust bag which I can reuse to carry my makeup while travelling! ;)
Find out more about these beautiful festive sets HERE
! They are now available at all Lancome counters including La Maison Capitol @ Capitol Piazza, while stocks last.

Saturday, October 17, 2015 :: Florals in Japan
Shot during the last few days of my trip in Japan with John nearby our hotel, the Essence pieces (our first ever designer apparels) in our Pre-Fall 2015 collection
will always hold a special place in my heart, as with the country Japan. Which was why I made sure to capture some shots of this pretty Essence maxi dress in Japan before we leave the beautiful country.
I love to be in pieces which will turn heads and this maxi is no exception :) I just can't wait for our customers to receive this maxi by the end of November because I am sure the beautiful floral prints will put a smile on their faces and the cut of the dress will be a confidence booster.
Ahhhh, my love for maxi dresses will never die.

Thursday, October 15, 2015 :: Lancome Youth Activating Facial Treatment & Makeover
had a fully-immersed and relaxed facial treatment where an “installation” will first engage you in a stress-free state so you are in the best state of
body and mind to maximise the efficacy of the
facial treatment? I had my first experience on such a polysensorial facial
treatment at Lancome Maison @ Capitol Piazza just last week.
known as the Lancome Fusion Massage, my therapist, Sheila, engaged me in a
completely relaxed state using several unique massage techniques which I had
never experienced in any massage sessions before. From turning up for my facial
appointment right up to the moment before my installation moment with Sheila, I
was uptight and stressed with work matters. When the installation ended about
15-20 minutes later, I was completely relaxed and the matters that seemingly
occupied my mind at the start were no longer at the fore front of my thoughts. I
felt like I was in a cocoon – enveloped in a safe and comforting environment.
“I thought I signed up for Lancome’s Youth
Activating Facial Treatment…this is so much more than the normal facial
” were my last thoughts before I drifted into a light sleep.
woke up to a feeling of rejuvenation, glowing skin and a refreshed look. Gone
were those worry lines under my eyes and on my forehead. The facial treatment
which encompasses the Youth Activating range were the key products used and the
efficacy of the products were enhanced by Lancome’s cutting-edge technological
devices designed to maximise results. It a unique ritual of a whole body
massage with targeted effects, award winning high performance products and
sophiscated technology that completes the Lancome Youth Activating Facial
then finished my experience at La Maison Lancome with a makeover using
their gorgeous Christmas eyeshadow colors like the one in L'Absolu Palette. When
I think of Christmas, I think of whites and golds and those were the colors I
used on my eye!
can register online here
to do the Youth Activating Facial Treatment at $120
per pax (fully redeemable for Lancome products) or the Holiday Makeover at the
Paragon Atrium for $120 per pax or $180 per 2 people (fully redeemable for
Lancome products too). Sign up before 20 Oct to receive exclusive early bird
gifts such as a bonus 4pc gift (worth up to $103)!
can also get your hands on the coveted Lancome Christmas Sets and Limited Edition
Holiday Make-Up Products at Paragon Atrium from 29 October to 4 November.
is a magical holiday where the excitement of counting down on Christmas Eve,
emotions seeing the streets full of festive lights, celebrating the season at
home with your loved ones gathered around a Christmas tree and the look of
happiness when everyone open their gifts. Share the gift of happiness by
sending a lovely giftbox full of coveted makeup products to your loved ones or
best friend. I am sure they will be delighted to receive the little red box ;)
Enjoy the best of Lancome with the ultimate makeup collection for every woman, for any occasion.

Thursday, September 10, 2015 :: Pets Grooming at Pooch Image
It has been close to 1.5 years since I have been entrusting the grooming of my little pumpkin, Tintin, to the skilled and caring groomers at Pooch Image. If only I have not misplaced my SD card containing photos from one particular period in the past where Tintin was experiencing pretty bad fur-loss at her face due to excessive tearing. Haha if you are wondering, yes, like mother like daughter - I had that period where I had gone from hair loss to significant balding. So the same thing happened to Tintin as well.
As with every pet parent, I was at a loss and didn't know what I can do and I felt so useless as I saw how her already tiny face was looking less fluffy and smaller by the day due to loss of fur. With the loss of fur, her snout became more pronounced as well.
Pooch Image's groomer, Valerie, who had been dedicatedly grooming Tintin for months and she realized with each session, Tintin seemed to come back with a thinner coat of fur and ultimately, sensitive and red skin around her eyes and snout.
So off Tintin went for the treatment @ Pooch Image also known as the Carboxyl CO2 Spa Treatment where micro bubbles containing carbon dioxide gently reach deep into every pore and cleanse it thoroughly removing dirt and build-up bacteria. At the same time, the spa provides cooling relief to Tintin’s sensitive skin. After 3-4 months into the treatment spa (a total of 3-4 sessions), Tintin’s skin went from a sensitive red to a healthy pink covered with newly grown fur. This is probably the only treatment I will recommend to all pet owners having seen the improvement in sensitivity of skin in Tintin. I did so for several pets owners whose malteses are facing the same issue as Tintin. Not sure if it is a “maltese” problem but I am pretty sure the humid weather has something to do with it especially pets with a long furcoat!
Thank you Valerie for your recommendations and above all, being such a responsible and caring groomer! I can’t wait to witness your holy matrimony in March 2016! ;*)
And not forgetting times where Pooch Image groomed Tintin for my shoots and events. The most memorable being the Clubpets Mag shoot where it was the first time I appeared on the magazine with Tintin :*) She was such a doll throughout the entire shoot! I was so proud of her!
And not forgetting that time where she accompanied me for our styled wedding shoot from 12-8pm :*) Love the cut that Valerie gave her - she looked so fluffy and adorbs in all the frames! See! They got her all fluffy white and ready for our shoot!
When I was at my busiest prepping for the opening of VGY's new boutique, I entrusted picking up and grooming of Tintin to Pooch Image whom I trust dearly with protecting and caring for my beloved pet in my absence :*)
Above all, THANK YOU for making every grooming trip a happy one for Tintin! :*)
