It's Payday! And what better activity to enjoy this joyous period than to shop! No harm indulging in a little especially when you know that you will be getting quality items from a reliable source and it will be something you love. I will introduce to you, the Skycart Mobile App! 

Skycart just launched their Mobile App! Now we can shop on the go and break our banks! Hahaha! Kidding! Skycart brings you the convenience of "shopping for you" on Taobao, and they have a wide range of korean beauty products for you to purchase too! Available on iOS and Android!

On the app, you can browse through the different pre-organized categories or lookout for the timely sale products that is on the top! Major Savings alert!! I love the clean layout of the order tracking page as it clearly tells me what I bought, how many did I buy and how much. I went crazy over the Power 10 essence as you can see in my cart! Haha!



Tadaaaaa! Here's the 4 Power 10 Formula Essence that I chose.
CO Effector, VC Effector, PO Effector and WH Effector, they are $11 each on Skycart.

The CO effector is packed with collagen, which is best for enhancing elasticity and moisture in the skin.
The VC Effector is the Number 1 selling item in Korea. It is full of Vitamin C and whitening ingredients to effectively brighten the skin.
The PO Effector contains Houttuynia extract which helps to shrink pores to give you a silky smooth complexion!
The WH Effector contains Arbutin & Chamomile to block the formation of melanin pigmentation to give the skin a bright finish.

I was browsing through the app and then I saw this Pobling Pore Sonic Cleanser! It's like a Clarisonic but it's from Korean and it's smaller! I've read so much about how clean these babies can do for your skin care regime. I so excited to try this out!

Accessories are also available on Skycart. I had a hard time choosing which one to get, I finally settled on this holographic looking pendant with a gold chain. I got 1 for my sister too! It's really cute. Best thing? Its only $2.50 EACH!

I bought this beautiful pastel colour Statement piece at $6.00 only. It's great for matching any simple outfit to give it a pop!

Gills & Shells @ Hotel Boss

I was invited by a friend to visit Gills & Shells for a dinner with my group of friends.
Located at Hotel Boss. it is just a 5 minutes walk away from Lavender MRT. Take Exit B and walk straight out until you see Hotel Boss. It's really not hard to miss this huge and brand new hotel.
So what's with Gills & Shells?
Gills & Shells is A Modern European Restaurant focusing on serving the best and the freshest seafood I what brings Gill & Shells out differently from the rest. Open by couple Jayson and Coreen, it is the perfect spot for locals and tourists to enjoy a cozy meal with its friendly modern ambience. The menu features their Chef's Daily Catch of freshest Seafood, Lobster and Oysters.



½ Dozen Freshly Shucked Oysters - $22.90
Served with homemade marmalade and French red wine vinegar sauce.
Personally I did not try them at all due to my previous experience with oysters bu my diner companions said that the oysters were really fresh & accompanied by the Homemade Marmalade and French Red Wine Vinegar sauce. The Homemade marmalade was so addictive! If you do not like raw oysters like me, Gills & Shells offer Baked oysters too! At the same price!

Wild Mushroom Soup - $6.90
If there is 1 thing to make you visit Gills and Shells, it will be their generous serving of Truffle oil in their dishes. I was like "Wah the truffle oil no need money one ah!" Haha! Their Wild Mushroom Soup is Made Fresh daily, drizzled with Truffle oil and served with In-house made Garlic Focaccia Toast. Souper Shiok la!

Not to be missed out is their Truffle Fries - $10.90 which yet again has generous amount of Truffle oil, which made us go on and on. I would like to highlight Gills & Shells Crab Cakes - $12.90 as well because its full of crabby flavour! It's a pity that I forgot to take a photo of its internal to show you how packed it is!

  
There are 2 sauce options for the Clams & Mussels - $15.90 - Spicy white wine clear broth with herbs, garlic, onions & chilli OR Smoky herb tomato garlic sauce. Both are served with Focaccia Toast. We went for the first option and BOY it was so Good I want to lick the plate dry! Gills & Shells is very generous with their seafood. The homemade toast, when soaked up with the sauce, it is simply divine. I would be back for more!

If you are craving for a Lobster Roll, look no further, Gills & Shells' Lobster Roll - $24.90 is packed with Succulent lobster roll meat tossed in Chef’s specialty sauce! Tucked in a homemade brioche bun, it is a great catch!

Kids and Adults will love this Crab Meat Pasta - $18.90 from Gills & Shells! It is meticulously made with cream, cheese, chunky crabmeat & wild Fungi. The cream is not Ge-lat (cloying) and the generous amount of crabmeat and fungi made me want to finish it on my own. Oops!

While I didn't taste this 200gram of Australian Prime Rib Eye - $25.90, my fellow diners were enjoying it! Grilled to a Medium Rare doneness, no pink was visible but the meat was tender in every bite. 

The Most Creative Dish of the night has to be the Truffle Infused Cod - $24.90. Why creative? It is because, Chef Xavier infused some local flavours into this dish. Nobody would have guessed that it was topped with Chye Poh (Preserved Turnips), something which locals could relate to but we never thought that it would taste so good with the cod! MUST TRY! It is served with a side of Saffron Rice. Oh my god, take me back now~

No meal is complete without desserts. Gills & Shell's Tiramisu - $10.90 (Contains Alcahol) & Brownie with Ice Cream - $10.90 was a great end to the night. The pot of Tiramisu was divine with every mouthful a burst of flavour. 


Thank you to Coreen for the invite and here's a photo pretty Coreen and Chef Xavier, who came to cook despite his leg injury. 
Kudos to him and the team!

Uncle Ringo at iLight Marina Bay Sands

This year, iLight is back at Marina Bay Sands. Although I did not have to chance to visit the exhibits, I was totally lost in the fun at Uncle Ringo's Carnival at Marina Bay Sands!

Carnival games like these are ultra rare for the current world, kids will not understand the urge to spend all your fortune trying to get that plush toy you want from the carnival games. I use to beg my parents for "1 More Try" which is like maybe 5 more tries! Haha!

Now, As technology improves, Uncle Ringo went from collect cash for the games, to issuing play cards for convenience! Just Tap and Play! Bonus: You get to keep the card!

Here's me trying the minion booth, SO CUTE isn't it! That aim took approximately 30 seconds and it did not hit anything off the table. #sucksatcarnivalgames

Then there's this twisty metal game where you have to hoop the metal ring through the twirling metal rod from top to bottom. Super hard I Swear! But this gentleman over here won a baby mickey for his girlfriend la! So Jealous!!

Then I screamed when I saw this cute pooh plush toy dressed in monkey suit! Haha! Tried like 3 times here and still didn't win anything. :(

AND THEN I SAW...... MINIONS! AHHHHHHHHHH! I had to try again! Hahaha! It seemed so easy, all we had to do is to throw balls into the milk churn, how hard can it be?

Very difficult apparently. Look at that serious face and the miss aim of the milk churn. T_____T 

After all the fun, I was really glad to relieve my childhood memories at Uncle Ringo's Carnival Games! Check out their facebook to locate the nearest carnival to you! Thank you so Francis for the invite and my partner in crime that night, Janel for snapping photos for me!

And with much much Thanks to Uncle Ringo himself who came down to visit us and play bumper car with us! Although he say I drive no license. HAHAHA!

Cheers to more money so that I can play at Carnival Games! HUAT AH Uncle Ringo!

Mane & Tail Shampoo & Conditioner Range


Thank you Sample Store for inviting me to try out the Mane & Tail Shampoo & Conditioner Range.
I got to try out the Original, Herbal-Gro and the Gentle Clarifying & Replenishing Range!
They have 2 more ranges like the Deep Moisturizing and Anti-Dandruff Range. I'm sure there is something for everyone. 

The shampoo formula contains high lathering and ultra-cleansing agents that are fortified with moisturizers and emollients to help leave hair soft and ultra clean. Followed by a conditioner that helps nourish and aid healthy hair growth, leaving hair looking lustrous and silky. These micro-enriched protein formulas help to prevent hair breakage and repair split ends, achieving the goal of longer, stronger, fuller hair…the results are unbelievable! There is still an underground rumor that the Mane ‘n Tail encourages hair growth. Imagine…the rest is history! 

Original formula is the formula that started it all. The popular formula contains emollients providing body, shine and manageability for healthy looking hair every time you shampoo. 

Herbal-Gro formula is the complete hair care system that is formulated with natural herbs blended with an olive oil complex to nourish, strengthen, and fortify hair from root to tip.

Gentle Clarifying & Replenishing Formula restores, revitalizes and reconditions for a naturally clean scalp and healthy hair. It helps to reduce flaking and itchy scalp and it is safe and gentle for chemically treated hair.

I am currently using the Gentle Clarifying & Replenishing Range and I must say they are very gentle on my heavily chemically treated hair! My hair does not tangle when I wash them or when I dry them. YAY! Though the smell may come across as not so pleasant for some, I find that it is ok for me, the Original formula's scent is more subtle.

Shampoo Consistency - Transparent!
Conditioner Consistency - Non Greasy!
You can get these awesome products from Watsons, Guardian, major Cold Storage, Robinsons, John Little and BHG and NTUC. Or if you would like to shop online, please visit their E-store: Maimee's Corner. www.maimeescorner.com

They are retailing at $15.90 Each!

Do like Mane 'n' Tail's Facebook here and you can hop on to The Sample Store to read more reviews on the other range from Mane 'n' Tail!

Cheers to healthy and maneighable hair (get it?) HAHAHAHA!

DYNA Treatment Perm with Headlines by Artistry

After what seems to be like 2 months, I'm back at Headlines by Artistry for my hair pampering session! My roots have grown out badly and the ends of my hair were dryer than dry. lol. Time for Elein to her magic on my hair again!

So this time, Elein suggested to me to do some treatment perm which can last up to 3 months! It's a temporary perm for ladies who would like to try out perming but are afraid that you might get bored of it after awhile. 

This DYNA Treatment Perm will allow you to achieve that perm but it will slowly loose the curls to become more of a natural wavy hair before going back to straight again. So it's like a 2 in 1! 1. Can do Treatment, 2. Can Perm hair. Awesomeeeeee!

After perming, Elein helped me touch up my roots. This machine over here helps the colour to penetrate quicker and I noticed that it forms a heart shape while doing it's job! Cute or what! Haha!

Here's the end result! Though it may not look as beautiful as those Thong-ed hair, but a little difference goes a long way. With this permed hair, I look like I have more volume in my hair as compared to the straight flat hair that I used to have. Perming results may vary from individual as everyone's hair condition is different. If your hair is healthier, the perms will turn out better! Trust me!

Now for Lobang time!
Quote "MICHELLE" when you call Headlines by Artistry for an appointment with Elein and you will get up to 30% OFF Hair Services!
AND also, if you are dying to try out the DYNA Treatment, there is a special First Trial price just for you! So call them up and book your appointment now!

I shall leave you here with the photos of my beautiful new hair. -Flips-
