Review: Play-Nails by Sophia

Beautiful nails play an important role in fashion as they are just like accessories. These nails can help you to complete a look or even enhance it. Nails are also something that people will notice when they first meet you, through handshake etc.

In addition to taking good care of nails to ensure it being beautiful & healthy, another way to do it will be going for manicure/acrylic enhancement. For this Chinese New Year, I got my nails done at Play-Nails by Sophia and I'm loving them! It's my first time getting acrylic nails and I must say Sophia did a great job with mine! This is not a sponsored review; good things are meant to be shared ;)
It's love at first sight for me, don't you think so too? :) I couldn't think of a design that I really wanted so she suggested this when I mentioned how I like those white polka dots on a pink paperbag and it turned out to be a great choice!

Her home based nail salon is located in Bukit Timah, a few stops away from Ngee Ann Polytechnic & Singapore Institute of Management; convenient for students like me! Plus, her prices are relatively affordable, depending on the amount of artwork you need, you can check out the prices on her Facebook Page. Since it's a home based business, she does this in her room which is air conditioned and cozy!

Like I mentioned earlier, it's my first time getting acrylic extension so I have no idea how things work and I had tons of questions for her, such as what is this tool for and what are we doing next, and she answered each question patiently while working carefully on my nails! The whole process took about 4 hours, but it is really relaxing and we can talk about practically everything, so time passed pretty fast.

Another picture of my nails before I end off!

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 …
