Skip to main content KA BLOOM Party #sskabloom

Thanks to the awesome team behind Sample Store for working hard all these years and constantly improving this wonderful site to benefit many from buying products that might not work. And the party was, without a doubt, a success gathering Beauty Editors, Beauty Panelists and Members all together at this lovely restaurant, Fullhouse Signature. I can't wait for the official launch for their new site at the end of this month! :)
Fullhouse Signature is the perfect place for wedding rom, birthdays, private functions and more as the place is elegantly designed. In fact, I couldn't forget about the beautiful layout of place when I was here for Nuffnang Birthday Bash earlier this year.
Various booths were set up around the place by advertisers & sponsors: Brands, Enavose, Belif, My Beauty Diary, Tsubaki, Pond's, Miacare, Goodal, NOV, Thewhiteombre, Emicakes, Nestle, etc. And we were each given a lucky draw card to accumulate chops by visiting each of this booths, which was an added bonus because I would have visited all these lovely booths anyway! The booths offered makeover, hair styling, skin analysis and even products that have yet to be launched in the market at discounted prices! There was just so much to see that I didn't take proper pictures of each booth.
Now to the main part of this post, the new Sample Store site will be available at the end of this month and this time round they changed the logo as well as the packaging to what you see above! It is simple yet pretty with images of the various containers used for different beauty products. What I noticed & liked abut this new site is the refreshing layout and the reviews being separated to members and seeders section which is really helpful if you would like to read only members' reviews!

If you have yet to join Sample Store, do create an account here today and be updated with the latest samples from various brands! Plus, be one of the first to try out their new site at the end of this month :)
With Rena :)

Once again, thanks Sample Store for the invitation and wonderful gifts from various sponsors!

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 …
