My biggest nightmare – the steam iron at home is not working anymore!!
Now I gotta bring my dress and iron it in the office sigh. Life sucks without the steam iron.
Surprise find in my vanity!
I know I did a sort of decluttering for my lipsticks a week back, but somehow I missed this out cause it was wrongly chucked together with my concealers and mascaras.
This is the Silky Girl Moisture Boost Lipcolour Balm. Name so long hahaha. I got it in 08 Mauve!
The packaging is icky (hate non retractable lip balm pens cause the cap always falls off and it causes a blood scene in bags) but it is SO cheap and the formula is SO comfy on the lips.
Can't remember the price but it's way below $10!
The colour's pretty cute too! Not really mauve la hahaha more like a very wearable muted coral.
Not lasting but then again, most creamy lipsticks don't last that long.
My fav is still their lipsticks though, 01 Naked and 18 Appealing. So sad I had to dump my 01 because we had a photoshoot the other day where we planned to use the lipstick to write on the mirror.
So I volunteered mine, since it's so affordable hurhur. 🌚
Silkygirl should totally change up their packaging!!
Love everything about their lipsticks but the packaging…… A lot of room for improvement. Would say that their lipsticks formula are way better than a lot of high end brands.
My lipstick went to this shot. Adios! 👋🏻
But okay la worth it!!
Okay since I'm staring at the photoshoot pictures right now, let me give you guys a little sneak peek of what's coming up this weekend at #TTR!
Had such a good time working with the team that day even though it was a Sunday!
This week we have 🍍🍍🍍!
Irina looks so adorable with the donut here. 🍩 Good job @eileenmak for buying the kind of donuts I wanted!! Hehe.
It was a super chill kind of shoot.
I told Irina "I wanna have the Sunday chilling at home kinda vibe!"
And she was so good at delivering the feelz that I envisioned. 😌
We also have the same cute pineapple prints in shorts.
You can make it a set! 😌👌🏻
Ughh this photo….!!!! 😍
Okay off for dinner with ZL, brb!! ❤️
While waiting for our b85 bcm to arrive… I shall get down to some work. Before I drift off into ZL land. 😂
Today, I'm going to be giving away this set of haircare products from Botanicals Fresh Care by L'Oreal! 💁🏻
I've been feeling very conscious about my hair lately…
Idk if it's because of stress – though it is most likely because of that – my hair has been dropping. LIKE CRAZY. And my hair isn't even that voluminous to begin with. 😭
Before this, I wasn't really selective or particular about the kind of haircare products I use. Basically I just used whatever was lying around. Usually my mum gets the shampoo and conditioner along with our family's grocery.
The moment I realise my drastic hair fall was when I tied my hair into a ponytail. And @jongsy commented "omg zeh how come your ponytail so puny??? You lost a lot of hair recently?"
And I got so conscious about it after that!! 😩
Was looking around the different haircare ranges and tried a few.. The first one was Lux which was sent to me. That totally didn't work and it made me drop EVEN more hair because of the richness.
The second one was a Japanese brand which was said to be "additive free" but I forgot what's the name… That didn't worsen the hairfall BUT it made my hair crazily tangled.
So tangled that I had huge difficulties combing through.
And my comb ended up with many, many strands of hair after I was done combing.
😭😭😭 Nothing really seemed to help.
So when Kexin from L'Oreal message me on IG offering to let me try out some products from Botanicals Fresh Care, I was a lil hesitant.
Got her advice and went for the Coriander series because it's said to be able to increase the resilience of fragile hair. Not for hair fall in particular but I didn't mind giving it a shot cause honestly it seems pretty awesome – no silicones, parabens or colourants.
Would have loved it more if not for the SLS, though!
For those of you who hate coriander… ME TOO. 🙌🏻😂
But don't worry your hair won't smell like a bunch of coriander okay? It seems a little organic and herb-y, that's all. And I like herb-y smells for my hair because it feels healthy. Hahaha.
It actually smells nice! But that's my opinion la. Smell is subjective, obviously.
I took more than 2 weeks with these products cause I really wanted to make sure my scalp was okay with them.
The first few washes were just as normal but after the first week I observed lesser strands of hair on my comb, and on my hands while I blow dry my hair. I also found less hair stuck to my magiclean. LOL.
Hair fall is still slightly more than my usual non-hairfall period but that's not what this range is really targeting anyway.
I'm already vvvvv happy that it didn't worsen my hair condition.
Plus point is that my scalp didn't seem to get oily as fast. And it didn't make my hair limp and lifeless, as some rich shampoos tend to do to me.
So I'm very glad to be able to share about this haircare range with you guys today, because they truly work for me!
Also, Kexin offered an extra set for me to giveaway to one of you guys. So nice of her!
To win this set of shampoo/condition/hair serum/mask, you don't have tell me interesting animal facts… HAHA. I think I got enough animal facts to last me for months. 😂
Like this post, leave a comment and share your hair woes/funny hair stories/bad hair day stories with me! 💁🏻
Interesting/weird/gross hair facts will do too. Hahaha. As long as it has to do with hair can already.
Picking the winners this Friday! ☺️
Before I go off for the night… Here's my #ootd.
☺️ this dress will be launched on #TTR this Sunday along with the pineapple top and shorts! Forgot to tell you guys, the shorts come with a cute bottom frill design. 🍍💕
The florals… are made ENTIRELY of embroidery! 👏🏻 And we picked the embroidery colour combinations ourselves. Happy that it turned out so pretty!
Some outfits make you feel good and this is one of them.
Comes with pockets too! ✌🏻 Cause we know you like them!
Supplier told us to do away with the embroidery at the sleeves cause it incurs extra cost… But I insisted. It makes a whole world of difference, small details as such. Don't you think? 😇
Don't miss this!! ❤️
Okay bye guys going to go stick myself to ZL already!
