Back to struggling with work sigh.
Yknow work is getting crazy when work trips feel like some sort of getaway. Lol.
I hate being so negative about my workload and I know that I have a job which many can only dream of having. But on days like this it really gets to me, knowing that I have tons of work waiting for me to settle and decisions for me to make.
No time to whine.
➕➕➕➕➕➕➕ positivity lezzgo!!
Saw a HUGE box sitting on my table when I got into office today and that immediately made my day better.
Who doesn't love receiving presents, right???
It's the largest box I've received to date, I believe. 😍
I've been receiving quite a bit of stuff from different brands over the past few weeks, and only got around to sorting them out properly today.
So here goes another round of PR items unboxing! 🎁✨
Since I've already started with Keds.. Let's roll with it shall we?
I've been partnering with Keds for some time now, and their new launches are always so exciting!
This time round, they've collaborated with Rifle Paper Co and came up with a floral series! 🌷🌸🌺🌹🌼🌻
EVEN THE SHOE BOXES ARE SO GORGEOUS.
Did the entire unboxing on my IG stories so you guys can hop over to see all the designs in the collection okay!
Will just be showing you my favourite pair out of the lot!
I was totally not prepared for the beauty of this pair. Rebecca sent me images of the collection but through the photos, I didn't realise that the florals were embroidered on. I thought they were printed on.
What a pleasant surprise when I received these!
So crazy gorgeous……. Right?!!!
Unfortunately this pair is OOS now.
But fortunately, they might be doing restocks for it soon!
This pair is definitely a must-have, if you're a lover of florals and sneakers like I am.
How can receiving these babies not make my day better??? :')
I also wore the gold foil florals on cream based pair today!
Show you guys later!
Another huge box I've received recently…
From Crabtree & Evelyn!
Inside the box was a curated selection of items from their new ranges inspired by superfoods.
The new ranges are Citron & Coriander, Goatmilk & Oat, Pear & Pink Magnolia, Rosewater & Pink Peppercorn, Pomegranate & Argan Oil and Lavender & Espresso.
Don't they just sound so yummy and nourishing???
There's also a glass jar for me to make detox water/salads in. So cute, this PR package!
I can't decide which range smells more heavenly….. THEY ALL SMELL SO GOOD. 😌
Crabtree & Evelyn is definitely one of my all time favourites when it comes to body care. And cookies. They make really awesome cookies. 😂
So far I've only opened up the Citron & Coriander body sorbet to try. And I love it. SO MUCH. So much that I have already decided that it will be in my Aug favourites post! LOL.
Recently I've been paying much more attention to body care so these were god-sent. Will try out the rest and let you know my thoughts, if any!
Next in line would be these… Lux shampoo and conditioner!
I was a lil confused when I received these because nobody informed me they were sending me these. And nobody emailed me after that to follow up either.
Whoever you are, thank you..? Hahaha.
Have been on the search for a good shampoo without silicones so I shall give these a try. My hair has been dropping like crazyyyy recently sigh. Hair woes.
Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Ultra-Light Fluid by La Roche-Posay was sent to me a week or so ago.
It seems really promising – it's supposed to be weightless and grease-free – so I'm looking forward! 😇
Makeup wipes to last me for months, from Bifesta!
These came in a huge PR kit as well… I showed it on IG stories a week ago but forgot to save the videos. Meh.
There are 4 different variations of makeup wipes. Gonna have fun trying these out! 👌🏻☺️
Got a whole bunch of Vichy skincare items waiting for me to try! There are actually a couple more items than what's shown but I passed them to my mum and @jongsy. ☺️
New skincare items make me look forward to my night routines very much. I take my time with skincare at night and am usually in the mood to try out new stuff. Unlike in the day where it's always rush, rush, rush. I also have to allocate time for makeup in the day so skincare is usually sticking to simpler routines.
I was really, really psyched when my favourite Taiwanese skincare brand emailed me telling me that they would like to send me some products.
And it's none other than Dr Wu! ✨😍
I've been using their stuff since 5 years back and was so, so happy when I saw their email sitting in my inbox okay!
After finding out my skincare type and concerns, they sent me these. Mostly from their repairing range + a box of hydrating masks which I'm already using on a regular basis.
Yes to anti-wrinkle since I'm not young anymore……. LOL.
In search of a powerful but affordable eye cream to replace my La Mer so I hope this works!!
But as usual, skincare products take a while to show effects so I'll probably check back in another few weeks to share my thoughts on these. ☺️👌🏻
Dropped by Porcelain @ Orchard Gateway the other day for a quick skin analysis and returned home with a box of products, which was introduced to me during the skin analysis.
This is the Cleansing Ritual Set and it's supposed to be both gentle and effective. I checked the prices and they're really affordable compared to derms too.
Am looking for a new staple makeup cleanser + toner so I'm hoping this is it..
Can't wait to use these!
Oh yessss this was the pair of Keds which I wore with my outfit! ✨
The gold foil florals go so beautifully and look so luxe on a cream coloured base. Super versatile pair even though it's printed all over. 👌🏻 I can imagine pairing this with so many outfits!
And that's the dusty crimson version of the yellow dress I wore to the National Gallery. 😉
The full collection from Keds X Rifle Paper Co series.
Seriously too pretty. 😍😍😍
That orangey red pair is so cute. Imma keep them to wear during CNY for sure!
Not sure how many of these you can get your hands on because they're selling really fast, the last I heard. Keds are available at all The Social Foot and Royal Sporting House outlets in SG.
And that's all folks! 💕
Sometimes I don't know how I got so lucky, having all these lovely brands wanting to send products to me.
Really would like to share some of these love with you guys so I'm gonna be working on a little something ok? Will share more when plans are concrete! 🤗
