3 days detox with expressions Slim Juice & Wheat Bran

*Sponsored*

We are all getting more and health conscious and detoxing is a good way to get rid of our toxins in our body so that we can feel more refreshed too! I got the chance to try out Expressions Slim Juice & Wheat Bran Capsules. With these 2, I am embarking on a 3 Day Detox Journey to get rid of toxins in my body and if possible, to Slim Down! 
*READ TILL THE END FOR A GOOD LOBANG!*

First you have to get an appointment to consult the Consultant who will advise you on the recommended diet and recommended instake for your body type. Basically the diet was No Sugar, No Carbs At ALL if possible!
Accompanied by the Slim Juice & Wheat Brand Capsules, Best Results can be up to loss of 3KG* within the 3 days! (*Results defer from each individual base on different body types)
The Slim Juice is a fruity enzyme drink that you take 30mins before meals to aid in your digestion. It's pretty yummy actually. Haha, The Wheat Bran Capsules did not have any peculiar taste or what.

My First Weight In:
Weight: 75KG
Body Fat: 44.2%
Visible Fat Level: 6
Body Age: 47 (ALMOST TWICE MY AGE!)

After 3 Days on Slim Juice & Wheat Bran Capsules:
Weight: 74.3KG (down by 700grams)
Body Fat: 38.5% (down by 5.7%)
Visible Fat Level: 5 (down by 1)
Body Age: 45 (down by 2 years)

The Most remarkable change would have to be my Body Fat Percentage. It dipped so much that the consultant was shocked too! A Person's Ideal Body Fat Percentage should be about 25% Only! I have a long way to go! 
The visible fat level is the fat around our organs and the ideal is 3, Mine was 6/10, but it went down to 5/10! Jiayou Jiayou!
The Body Age is something to be concerned about. As I do not exercise much and I just eat, my body is getting unhealthy. The ideal body age should be the same as your actual age. #justsaying lol!

My CNY Nails with Vanitee Certified Artist - THENAILARTASAURUS

Hey Hey! I'm here to share with you me Chinese New Year Nails of 2016, the Year of the Fire Monkey! As I am born in the year of the monkey and this year's fire monkey does not seem well for me, I do not want to have fiery red nails la, so I toned it down to some nudes colour instead. Can you guess?

After filtering the many nail artistes on Vanitee, I chose Michelle from The Nailartasaurus! One reason was because her name and my name is very similar! Haha! When you visit her place, you can see her pet Bunny - Mochi! Very Shy little guy.

So after about 2 hours of hard work and laughters, my nails were finally done! I am very thankful that Michelle can accomodate to my schedule and manage to do a wonderful job with my nails!
Here's How it looks!

Michelle Painstakingly crafted the Hello Kitty with the Lion Dance head for at least half an hour each. And she even allowed me to request for a redo as I wasn't too happy with one of them. I really loved her service and I'm sure all other nail artistes on Vanitee will be as good as her because I've not seen any Bad Reviews on Vanitee so far!

So remember to book via Vanitee and quote "MICHELLECNY" to get a FREE Beauty Kit from VanityTrove Worth $30!!
What's More, For every booking made from now will 14th February, you will get a SURE-WIN Ang Pow from Vanitee! So HUAT AH! Quick book your slots for Chinese New Year or Valentines now!

Vibbly Skin Beauty - Colour Eyelash Extensions!


Eyelash extensions are getting really common nowadays and I must say that I'm craving to see something different. I visited Vibbly to remove my previous lash extensions and look at how lasting the lashes were after a total of 1.5 months. I am impressed since I'm a super rough person, the lashes can still stick to me without much care for it. Haha!

The lash removing process was nothing uncomfortable. First, a cream was applied to soften the glue used to attach the lashes and then Veira slowly removed the remaining lashes before doing a clean up on my natural lash. So I thought, what should I do this time round & I was introduced to Colour lash extensions! Say whatttttt. Yes! By adding Afew strands of colour lash to your normal lash extensions, it can bring out a whole new different feeling, more fun I guess! I was so excited I didn't know which colour combination to pick! I left it to Veira to decide for me. At first I thought red & purple or Pink & purple will be nice, but Veira say it might be too crazy for work, so we toned it down to Blue & Purple!
 

Here's the final look! It looks great doesn't it? The colour lashes are attached at the ends of my eyes to make the colors pop! At first I tot my whole eye was going to be made up of blue & purple lashes only! Hahaha!

And you can visit Vibbly for your fun eyelash extensions for this coming CNY! Look at the promotion!! p.s: that's my eye by the way! Hahaha!

Inserts a Selfie to show off my lashes. Haha. Be sure to give Veira a call to book your slots for Chinese New Year ya!

Shop festive with Zalora this Chinese New Year!

It's the time of the year again to shop for New Clothes! And Zalora has stocked up on tons of Chinese New Year collection for both guys and ladies!

Their photos for the collection looks great man! It's very trendy and stylish, no more Ching Chong Style for Chinese New Year! I believe in look good, feel great policy la! Haha.

Here are some of my picks for the ladies!

This Placement Floral Dress is so suitable for the lady like ladies, not my type definitely! Haha! I love the Off Shoulder details and I believe the white base dress will bring out the pop of colours for the flower prints! It is also available in Black!
For the lady in you.

For the Fun ladies, I would recommend you to get a pair of Pleated Cullotes as it looks feminine enough but it can help you avoid the hassle of sitting cautiously especially when you are visiting your relative's house where the chairs are "limited edition" #ifyougetwhatimean. Haha. This is more of a simplistic look when you pair it with a light coloured top to make sure even Ah Ma agrees.
http://www.zalora.sg/Pleated-Cullotes-373136.html

If you are those that hate the Chinese New Year colours but still want to look on point on Chinese New Year, I would recommend this Double Layer Lace Dress in Navy. It is NOT Black, so Ah Ma and all your Aunties will not judge you or nag at you when you visit. Haha. 
http://www.zalora.sg/Double-Layer-Lace-Dress-377831.html

Here's my 2 cents worth of selection for the Gentlemen!

A nice polo tee with something red will be good enough for you gentlemen! And I believe a CN-Color Block Polo Tee will be so much more comfortable than a Shirt la. So Polo Tee for the way! 
http://www.zalora.sg/CN-Color-Block-Polo-365543.html

For those who do not fear the heat, please consider this CN-Suede Frontal Neoprene Bomber Jacket, I think it looks damn good when paired with a white Tee inside just like the model. Very fun & stylish at the same time!
http://www.zalora.sg/CN-Suede-Frontal-Neoprene-Bomber-Jacket-370723.html

And of course we will have the "I do not like to wear red" gang of brothers, so please look at this CN-Flap Pocket Brushed Cotton Short Sleeve Shirt, I'm sure Grey is a great colour to pair with just about anything! 
http://www.zalora.sg/CN-Flap-Pocket-Brushed-Cotton-Short-Sleeve-Shirt-365617.html

A good pair of shoe to walk around is crucial with all the intense visiting. This CN-Mixed Material Moccasins looks really good and easy to wear and take off. Imagine you spend 5 minutes taking off your shoe, then your relative stand there wait for you... #awkward Haha.
http://www.zalora.sg/CN-Mixed-Material-Moccasins-389311.html

*All images and information obtained from Zalora but all recommendations and selection is by me, myself and I*

I hope my suggestion is good enough hor, writing this post makes me want to go shopping but I'm broke after Christmas & Penang, so I'll have to wait for my pay check this month to do some Last Minute Shopping!

Brumee Kollo Mee non-fried Instant Noodles & Nutrigold Blackcurrant Concentrate

*Sponsored*

Many of us grew up with our favourite chilled blackcurrant drink, known for giving us that boost of Vitamin C. Win Win Food Singapore recently introduced its new product - Nutrigold Blackcurrant

Concentrate with the following differentiation:
• higher in Vitamin C (52 mg per 100ml compared to the usual 48 mg per 100ml)
• no artificial colours
• more concentrated

1 cup of orange juice will give you 97 mg of Vitamin C
1 cup of tomato juice will give you 45 mg of Vitamin C
1 cup of cooked broccoli will give you 74 mg of Vitamin C
1 medium sized kiwi fruit will give you 70 mg of Vitamin C
1 cup of Nutrigold Blackcurrant will give you 130 mg of Vitamin C

How do you make a good cup of Nutrigold Blackcurrant drink?
Recommended dilution ratio = 50 ml of Nutrigold Blackcurrant with 200 ml of water
Nutrigold Blackcurrant Concentrate is available at all major supermarkets.


Kollo mee is a popular noodle dish among people in Sarawak, just like how we love our wanton mee and bak chor mee noodle dish. Besides char siew (barbecued pork) and vegetables, kollo mee is also served with minced meat in Sarawak.
Win Win Food Singapore recently introduced its new product - Brumee Kollo Mee, the non-fried instant noodles - as the team is aware that people are getting more health conscious these days. Even if they have to eat instant noodles, they pick the healthier choice.

Brumee Kollo Mee is NON-FRIED, contains NO MSG, NO COLOURING. It’s a breeze to cook this. Quick, fuss-free, springy and delicious. You may even go a little more creative and add your own toppings of seafood or even vegan/vegetarian instead of the usual char siew and minced meat. 



I liked the noodles because they are flat, and if you cook according to the packaging instructions, you will get really springy noodles but due to the fact that the noodles are not fried, they tend to stick together a little, but its alright, it doesn't affect the taste! Highly Recommend for a healthier choice for supper! :P

Brumee Kollo Mee is available at NTUC Supermarkets at an introductory price of $3.20 for 5 packs of 100g.

I love my maggie noodles but need to keep those intakes in control! :D

*Sponsored* 

It is becoming more common these days to hear people sharing their concerns on chronic skin conditions such as sensitive skin, acne, allergies, eczema etc. And these can happen to anyone from a young child to an old person. Causes cam be due to tropical irritants or internal such as environmental, food allergies and emotional elements. I have never try out coconut oil neither have I heard about the great uses of coconut oil until I received this Virgin coconut oil. It's almost like a magic potion i tell you, but let's talk about the soap first.

For five generations, over 150 years, the Bronner family is known for their soap making excellence. Nothing brings the warmth and coziness of home and hearth into your shower like Dr. Bronner's range of heavenly-scented Castile Organic Liquid Soap. They are certified organic under the USDA National Organic Program, as well as certified Fair Trade. Packaged in 100% postconsumer recycled (PCR) plastic bottles, these soaps are renowned for their quality, versatility and eco-friendliness. Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap is retailing at a reasonably good price of $18.90 for a 16oz.


So What are the 18 uses for this wonderful soap?
18-IN-1 VERSTATILE USES * is certified to USDA Organic Standards 
(same strict standards used for Organic Foods) 
1. Shave 2. Shampoo 3. Toothpaste 4. Soap Bath or Foot Bath 5. Deodorant 6. Denture Cleaner 7. Mouth Wash 8. Hands Cleanser 9. Body Massage 10. Laundry 11. Douche 12. Hot Towel Massage 13. Pets 14. Dishwashing 15. Toilet Wash 16. Fruits/Vegetables Wash 17. Pest Spray 18. No Rash Nappy Soap
But all uses are subjected to personal skin conditions ah!

Next will be the MAGIC ALL-ONE Fresh Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil:
Dr Bronner’s Whole Kernel Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is expeller-pressed from fresh, carefully dried coconut kernels whose brown inner skins have been left on, resulting in a more aromatic, nuttier-tasting oil. Versatile and delicious, Whole Kernel Coconut Oil can be used for stir-frying, sauces, baking and body care, including hair and body moisturising, oil pulling, DIY toothpaste formulations, and more.
But I'm not going to use it for all of those! Haha! I'm going to make my own Lip balm! YES! you've read it, Lip Balm!

Here's a simple step - by - step on how to make your own Crayola Coconut lip balm.

STEP 1: Get a small dish and place it in a water bath with the water simmering, not boiling!
STEP 2: Add 1 Table Spoon of coconut oil and half of a crayon (your choice of colour)
STEP 3: Take a toothpick and mix both together well.
STEP 4: Once well combined, pour out into your prepare container to store it.
STEP 5: Let cool and keep in the fridge to further settle the lip balm for 4 hours.

Look at my creations! I've tried them and they are really smooth and moisturizing! And this is a great way to try out many different colours and try to out different looks.
