Estee Lauder Isetan Scotts Holiday Event

Thanks to Estee Lauder for the chance to attend this holiday event! :)
Sis accompanied me to the event which took place last weekend at Isetan Scotts Estee Lauder Counter. Light refreshments were provided and we managed to look through their products before the beauty demo started. There were quite a few products that caught my eye such as the double wear foundation, but it is alittle pricey for me :(

Anyway, the beauty demo was done by Regional Makeup Director, Zohn Ho. He spoke to some of us before the session started and addressed our concerns by getting volunteers from the crowd to be the models.
A simple gif where he's addressing the concern of eye makeup :)

The session took about 30 minutes and I learnt some tricks which I'll try in the future. It includes:
- mixing eye cream with concealer for dark circles/eye bags to not only conceal but moisturize the eye area and not recommended to apply foundation in that area to avoid getting creases which makes it look as if you have very thick makeup
- mix a moisturizing serum with bb cream to give a fresh and natural look which is suitable for those who dislike heavy makeup
- fill your lips in using a lip liner with soft, feathery strokes instead of a harsh outline to create the perfect base for your lip colour 
Some pictures of us! I decided to try center parting for a day, not used to it but it's definitely easier to keep in place as compared to side fringe.

Here are some of the samples we get to take home! I can't wait to try out the double wear foundation ;)
1. Pure Colour Nail Lacquer in 09 Tempting Melon
2. Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengtheing Mascara
3. Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup in 36 Sand
4. Advanced Night Repair

I will try to review these once I'm free:)
Till then~

Review: Owndays PC (Blue Shield) Lenses

A few months ago, I posted a guide & review on Owndays Singapore and mentioned that I would like to get PC lenses with them as well as do a pair of eye glasses in Korea/Japan and I did both! Now I have 3 pairs of spectacles which is alittle too much. Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about not being able to see if I were to lose one pair of spectacles!  Today I'll be reviewing on their PC aka blue shield lenses. They seemed to be emphasizing more on this type of lens lately and I didn't find a review on this so I decided to be the first to start. Owndays PC lenses come with a slight tinted brown colour and blue coating. The purpose of these lenses is to cut down a certain amount of blue light that is being emitted from electronic devices such as computer, mobile phones, TV, etc.  (Picture credited to Owndays Singapore)
You might be wondering, what is blue light and why do we emphasis so much on it now? Blue light is a type of light that is blue in colour(like duh.…

Review & Guide: Owndays Singapore

If you've been to Korea or Japan, you might have heard of getting a pair of spectacles done within the same day or even within minutes! Based on reviews I found online and through friends, it can cost less than $100 for a pair and I have been tempted to get mine done there ever since.

Earlier last year, Owndays decided to expand and opened its first shop in Singapore. To many, it was a relatively new concept to get spectacles within the same day but to me, it's like finally, I have a chance to experience it without having to travel!

A basic introduction to those who are not familiar with the store. Owndays is a brand from Japan that offers all-in-one price (frame + 1.6 high index aspheric lenses) at $98-$198. With 1,500 styles to choose from and processing time of 20 minutes, you can not only find a pair of spectacles to correct your vision but also change them according to different occasions.

I love their open concept. Unlike most optical…

Guide to KORAIL's O Train & V Train

Sightseeing trains are gaining popularity in Korea and it is one of the things you have to try when you're there! Today I'll be sharing on O Train & V Train which started its operations sightly more than a year ago on April 2013. These trains journey through Korea's inland valleys with the O-train looping around the central inland region, running through the provinces of Chungcheongbuk-do, Gangwon-do, and Gyeongsangbuk-do. While the V-train, connecting Buncheon in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province and Cheolam in Gangwon-do Province, runs through scenic valleys. Detailed information on these trains can be found on VisitKorea.

I realized there is a lack of information on the site as to how you can purchase the tickets online or offline and how to best plan the route if you would like to take both trains plus return to Seoul on the same day. So here's a simple post on how I purchased my tickets on the spot and the mistake I made(and you can avoid if you read this post), but …
