Yumi Lash Lifting @mytwinklelashfairy

076775C6-3161-4AFA-8B5E-31361ADD8A06

Every year, I often try to find a way for personal growth and development. I believe it is important for ones to often improve themselves to keep up in our fast pace society. This year, I decided to take on a skill. As mentioned in my Insta Stories, I am now officially a Certified Lash Lift Technician.

What in the world is that?!?! 

C7877CD4-B51E-44C8-AC37-2ED2FBF72F37

Let me explain…. Beauty perks has come a long way. Eyelash treatments especially has taken over the world by a storm. As the trend from fake lashes to eyelash extensions and now the revolutionary Lash Lifting. It all brings a whole new meaning to the eyes.

23A723D4-9C54-4361-9B3B-AE51D2580C76

I had my fair share of eyelash extensions done the past couple of months (during the hype.. that is) after having them done over at Fabulash (Arcadia). Needless to say… I LOVED IT!!! My lashes were definitely on point… long, curvy, sexy looking 24/7. However, after a couple of rounds of having them redone (mind you, extension lashes starts dropping quite a bit after a week) and as much as I love having luscious long sexy curvy looking lashes, I hate the fact that my own natural eyelashes were also compromised. After a couple of months of having them done and redone… I began to notice my lashes were shorter and much less than its usual self.

As we all know, our natural lashes will drop (I mean, it is suppose to drop) but I somehow feel that my natural lashes health was also compromised in those few months that I had them done. Eventually, I decided to remove them all and leave them bare to let them gain back their strength and length again.

Reality is NO MATTER HOW WE ARE TOLD OUR LASHES IS NOT AFFECTED.. IT EVENTUALLY WILL BE IF YOU DO IT CONSTANTLY.

Or maybe, my lashes is simply just not so suitable to have lash extensions done.

I always love natural looking lashes and before I heard of extensions.. my metal eyelash curler and mascara was always a MUST HAVE in my daily routine. That was until Lash Lifting came into my world. Lash Lifting gave me a whole new perspective of how our natural looking lashes can look amazing with just a simple lift (almost like a perm.. but wayyy curvier and much more natural looking).

Let me be a bit more specific.

03D37E3D-FE02-4243-A83C-AF86F1D9BB1B

What is the difference between Lash Lift and Perm? Well, it is technically the same effect of having your eyes shout WOW and giving them lashes that extra oomph. However,  the technique used for a lash perm uses a cylinder rod whereas a lash lift uses a silicone. I personally believe that Lash Perm works better on those with longer lashes as the curling shortens them rather than elongating them. (A little bit like curly fries). HOWEVER, Lash lifts are suitable for all lash lengths (yes.. this means if you have short straight looking lashes, you are going to LOVE this results) due to the ability to ‘lift’ the natural lashes from the root using different sized silicone. This makes them more inclusive for women with shorter lashes who have always turned to extensions as well.

B0F316EF-F28D-4F77-9F67-896913846CF3

The results is all so natural. That I can’t stress how much I love it. Did I also mention, it last way much more longer than lash extensions. A good 2-3 months that is!!

In a fast-paced industry, lash lifts are now one of the hottest trends with beauty professionals all over the country making sure it’s on their service lists. BUT please beware as a good technician and brand of products brings you a long way. My favourite Brand by far (after many many rounds of survey) is YUMI Lash Lift (originally from France). A widely established and well known brand throughout the globe. This method enhances the eyelashes naturally at the same time giving it a simple hint of dye to bring out the eyes that bit further. (Trust me, it makes so much of a difference).

Fabulash Eyelash Extensions Review

IMG_1151
Back in my 20’s I used to work in the beauty industry. It was something that represents me and my passion for beauty. It kept me looking forward to going to work everyday. Sometimes, when I think back.. I truly do miss those times.

Today, in my mid 30’s and as a mom of two life is completely different. Looking good no longer is my priority but a luxury with the kids being around. Don’t get me wrong, I do try my best to look presentable (although most of the time I look like a typical mom with a lack of style … no kidding! ~)

HOWEVER ~ ever since I open my eyes after I had tried Fabulash I have a whole new concept of feeling and looking amazing. Yup.. the below image us exactly how I look like with simply loose powder and lipstick as makeup. NO EYE MAKE UP AT ALL.

IMG_1023

I remember my very first Eyelash Extension done at a small beauty parlour many donkey years back left me with an experience that I can definitely STRESS was not a good one. There’s always horror stories and the fear that our real lashes will all drop off leaving us with *botak/bald* looking ones! 😖 When I had my first experience it was nothing more but horrible!! It was literally a nightmare that I told myself I will NEVER EVER get my lashes done ever again!

Fast forward, many years, months and days later.. I stumbled upon the big RAVE of eyelash extensions once again. A girlfriend/neighbour of mine had hers done and I loved how it looked on her. She had hers done in various places using ONLY JAPANESE LASHES! I was in dilemma. I started having the itch to try.. i wanted to give it a go but I was extremely fearful for loosing my lashes. Months later, my girlfriend moved to Singapore and I put the whole idea on hold. Until I heard about Fabulash located in Arcadia Desa Park City.

IMG_0657

They were opened for a good six months before I finally decided to walk in to enquire about it seeing how packed it always is whenever I walked past the shop. I finally made the leap and had my appointment set to get them lashes done!

IMG_0656

IT FELT LIKE A MAJOR TRANSFORMATION!!!

The lashes I used were the Sakura Hime Lashes and they gave me a very natural look. They are also extremely light and doesn’t feel stressful at all on my own natural lashes. One thing I love is that their products are Japanese (YES! YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH JAPANESE PRODUCTS).

I can literally say BYE BYE to eyeliner and Mascara after today. It has definitely made my morning routine way much more faster than the usual 10 min I take. Now, I need only 3 min to get ready. 😁

IMG_2001

As I am fairly active in general… gym in the mornings (I sweat a lot), run errands for the family and chase after my little monkeys + occasional Muay Thai in the evenings and late night social dancing.. I can say, these lashes doesn’t disrupt my daily lifestyle at all.

I swear by them lashes and I seriously think I can’t live without them now! 🤔🤣
If you’re like me… worried yet want to look fabulous.. take my advice and give Fabulash a chance to transform you to be beautiful.

Fabulash does nails too! I love their collection of Nail Art available. They are simply GORGEOUS!

Florist That Makes Gifting Flowers Truly Special

 

I love receiving flowers, I believe every women secretly does.

flower-delivery-singapore-florist_singapore_tulips_allison_closer

In Malaysia and Singapore it is literally swerving with florists. They’re on every corner, so it’s a little difficult to judge each one, when you’ve got so many other ones to compare to. Yet, there’s always that one gem in every industry and market that seems to stick out and today the one that caught my eye is from Singapore, known as A Better Florist, and I was happy to find out they are different indeed.

To start off, they’re not just any flower shop. They’re one of the best they can be. They can be considered a gift shop, because they offer so much more than just flower bouquets and arrangements. Although that’s their primary passion and focus, and something that draws you in immediately, their hampers and fruit baskets are equally attractive.

flower-delivery-singapore-premium-fruit-gourmet-basket_1.pagespeed.ce.rya9pwwRWx
On first glance, you’ll see that they put a lot of thought into every bouquet. Every detail matters. They also claim that they want to make a world a better place one bouquet at a time. They want to provide to their customers what nobody else has before – unique flowers. You’re able to contact them and request customised arrangements and bouquet, so that your story, feelings and thoughts are embedded into it with each bloom.

flower-delivery-singapore-keira2_1.pagespeed.ce.MFDalSMqjd
Apart from the ability to create your own personalised bouquet, A Best Florist in Singapore makes sure that they are always fresh. Try ordering on any day of the week, even if they are in the midst of a busy Valentine’s Day flower delivery in Singapore. Their flowers are still going to be one of the perkiest ones on the block, holidays or no holidays. That kind of dedication is known to maintain the same standards and keep them high is really admirable.

flower-delivery-singapore-huntley_1.pagespeed.ce.bnOoLn7eKA
I love that they’ve developed from a flower stand in Singapore and embarked their business venture by fully-developing and expanding to be known as one of the the better few florist in Hong Kong, Dubai and Abu Dhabi as well.

flower-delivery-singapore-the-ayla_1.pagespeed.ce.jrSEs0wfYD

They truly cater to all people with a busy lifestyle. Whether you’re an entrepreneur or a mom with three kids, you’ll find that it’s so easy to shop from their website. You could be putting your baby away for a nap, and still be ordering a gorgeous bouquet on your mobile phone for that special someone, and/or that special occasion.

flower-delivery-singapore-lilah_1.pagespeed.ce.DbuTPkZUbz (1)
I believe, they aren’t called the best florist in Singapore just for that reason. One of my favourite things about A Better Florist is that they know what bothers customers. Nobody likes to wait long for their orders, and nobody wants a service that they can’t depend on 24/7. That’s why A Better Florist by far is one of my favourite as they developed the best flower delivery in Singapore, and I believe is setting an example to all florists as well :).

flower-delivery-singapore-madelyn_1
They deliver every day, and even on the same day! You don’t have to pencil in dates, or wait for days. They are literally a 24 hour florist in Singapore that pops up whenever necessary. They even deliver within 90 minutes, if you’re really in a rush and need a bouquet ASAP. And this definitely has caught my attention and I believe for many others as well. I embraced the luxurious shopping experience A Better Florist created.

flower-delivery-singapore-the-spring-breeze_1
Of course, that little piece of flower heaven isn’t only for Singaporeans. They also have the best flower delivery in Hong Kong, if you’re ever there or you happen to live there and need fantastic flowers and gifts. Or, if you’re not looking for a but a florist in Dubai that’s going to meet the standards of this luxurious place, then you can also count on their Dubai flower delivery.

flower-delivery-singapore-josephine_1.pagespeed.ce.JnOKmrH8Bw
A Better Florist is literally expending as we speak and blooming around the world one petal at a time. If more florists thought like the A Better Florist team, I believe we would all be a lot happier in general, wouldn’t you agree?. Go check them out.

Hypno Birthing “The Gentle Birthing Bootcamp”

63686_10150113671573092_589283091_7589404_3900708_n-thumb.jpg

Being pregnant twice in this lifetime has been truly a blessing. It has not only opened my eyes to learn how amazing the role of Mothers are. Ever since being a mom, I have always seek to give my children the very best I can. Today, I would like to share with you something I perceived to be a magical knowledge that I wished I had the opportunity to have learnt when I was pregnant.

❤️

It was only recently, I came across HypnoBirthing. Like many, I myself was curious to learn more about the choices of birthing we have as mothers. AND HypnoBirthing is actually all about JUST THAT.
As what I have recently found out, the name itself/association with hypnosis raises many misconceptions. Hence, I wish to share this out to all as I have learnt that there will be an upcoming bootcamp to share some love and spread awareness to all.
Here’s a little bit of information about what I have learnt thus far.
❤️
Hypnosis is NOT : 
– losing control of your mind
– revealing family secrets or bank account details 😛
– an eerie, trance-like state
In fact, you are fully in control and it is a very natural state of the mind. Daily examples of hypnosis is daydream, driving on auto-pilot, engrossed watched TV, the state between half asleep and half awake (so at least 2x a day before we fall asleep and before we become fully awake).
❤️
HypnoBirthing is NOT:
– water birth or home birth. Majority of HypnoBirthing mums birth in hospital – dry birth
 ❤️
How Does HypnoBirthing Work
 
HypnoBirthing works on both the conscious and subconscious mind – which is way more powerful than conscious mind.
Conscious mind – knowledge on natural birth process and thorough preparation for their birth – birth plan, nutrition, exercise, birth companion role, bonding with baby, body’s perfect design of birth so mums feel confident in their innate ability to birth
Subconscious mind – Fear release through hypnosis – releasing all subconscious fear + daily practising of positive affirmations of birth so the WHOLE mind becomes positive.
The body is a robot of the mind – once mum has a positive mindset, her body will follow suit. Body reacts positively when it is time to birth and relaxes so baby comes easily.
HypnoBirthing  has a 12.5 hour highly comprehensive childbirth preparation class. A usual hospital antenatal class spends 1-2 hours on birth. That is not enough.
Teaching many techniques too – breathing, relaxation, deepening relaxation, visualisation & affirmations. The Gentle Birth Bootcamp is a 3 hour sharing on positive birth.
❤️

Background on The Gentle Birth Bootcamp

The objective of this bootcamp is to raise public awareness of the importance of a gentle birth experience for the whole family. There are also many things that new parents are unaware of. Simple knowledge that could make a BIG difference in how their experience can go.
Baby With Bee is an independent antenatal education provider that teaches parents things that are not normally taught in typical hospital antenatal classes. Teaching a childbirth technique called HypnoBirthing and other baby-centered classes like infant massage, breastfeeding and newborn care classes are also apart of their program.
❤️
More on Gentle Birth
The topics that covered during the bootcamp include:
– what is gentle birth
– why is it important
– how your birth choices impact your breastfeeding success
– what is HypnoBirthing and how it can help you achieve an easier, more comfortable birth
– Birth positions
– how to prepare your birth plan
– chance to listen to sharing of positive birth stories by couples who have been there & DID IT!
– infant massage and why it is important
Did you know that birth positions can make a lot of difference to a laboring mother’s level of comfort? My baby girl was a breach baby and somehow it did take a toll on my back when I was pregnant with her. Despite that, I too had a very narrow pelvis to begin with hence, in the end I had not much of a choice but to opt for C-Sec for both my children.
Did you know that there are many ways that a birth companion can help during labor? Dads love to be part of the birth process but are often reduced to being part of the wall flower, just trying to stay out of the way and not faint. During HypnoBirthing class, they teaches dads what to do to care and support and encourage their wives. Dads are very empowered with the knowledge they gain from classes and go on to be very hands on fathers.
There are so much more to share and they would be doing so in the upcoming Bootcamp event
unnamed
 “The Gentle Birth Bootcamp” which will be held on the 14th May 2017 at Bukit Kiara Equestrian Club.
Ticket Pricing
It is a highly subsided event, made possible with the support of sponsors and they are charging a minimal of RM 80 per couple but currently they are offering an extended early bird fees of only RM 50 per couple or RM 80 per 2 couples. *Not sure when this lasts, so be sure to be quick to reserve your spot with them*
For further information you can check out their website over at www.babywithbee.com.
And if you do have the time.. check out this cool Video.
Hopefully, the information above inspire you as much as it had inspired me. Now, I can’t help but cheekily wonder how fun it would be if I am pregnant once again. 😍 #justsaying

Bowhouse Pet Salon

BowhousePetSalon8

Mochi has been with us the family for over a year now. She came to us on a very special day, Easter. She was a tiny little fur ball and only weighs less than 500 gram and was the size of my palm. A new member 🐶

BowhousePetSalon9

Today, she has grown to weigh 3.8kg. A smaller sized shih-tzu breed compared to others. She was born on February 8th 2016 (herself and her younger sister). For some odd reason, she came out to be the smaller one despite being elder.

12814015_10154026209148092_5665681521282644314_n

It was instant. The connection we had was unbreakable. She got along so well with the family and everyone loves her to bits.

image

As the days goes by, months and now a year..

BowhousePetSalon7

I have always wanted to give her optimum care and love the best way I can (I spoil her just like another kid in the house) . It was tough as I searched for a Pet Sitter when we had to go away for a couple of days and we can’t bring her along with us. I have to say, I had experienced a fair share of unfortunate pet sitters. Some places gave her ticks (it shouldn’t have but it did) , some had accidentally hurt her, and she was disgracefully dirty when I picked her up. I feel it is a little sad that this occurred while these Pet sitters had promised me the best of the best treatment but I was truly disappointed at the end of the day with their services.

Thankfully, I found Bowhouse Pet Salon.

BowhousePetSalon1

Bowhouse Pet Salon is a place for our four-legged friends to play calmly, socialize and be pretty! They provide dog grooming service, daycare and boarding while making sure they have a good time at our playground!

BowhousePetSalon12

I sent my little fur ball there for a couple of days this month as I had to travel up North. Needless to say, she had so much fun she had over there mingling with her four legged friends. I love the spacious environment they provide as well as the play pan style boarding hence the dogs are not caged up all the time and get to roam around freely with a Pet Sitter present.

BowhousePetSalon4

Before picking her up, they gave her an awesome bath and fluff.

IMG_5732

She was in cloud nine by the time they finished.

I am truly grateful and thankful to have found Bowhouse and I can truly see the difference as when I bring my fluff ball there to visit/grooming as compared to any other Pet Salon. Some places, before bringing her inside she starts whining.

Bowhouse on the contratry provides great effort in understanding your pet and going that extra mile to provide them with love, care and provide one-to-one focus on your dog’s interaction, temperament and behavior be it when they are running around or even on the grooming table.

Keep It Clean: The Adventures of Busy Mom

img_3682

Being a momma blogger has given me so many privileges. One of them I truly treasure is when I meet and develop new friendship along the way.

Today, I would like to introduce another writer and owner of a small cleaning business in London known as Evie Horton.

evie-horton

She is my guest blogger for today, and had came up with many wonderful yet brilliant ideas that I would love to share with all you readers, to be inspired by her as to how she has inspired me.

Keep It Clean: The Adventures of Busy Mom

furniture-1041492_1280

Today’s moms are supposed to deal with many challenges as a part of their everyday routine. They have to take up a full time job, take care of the household, look after kids and meanwhile, find a way to be fit and healthy, exercise regularly, catch up with old friends and take a well-deserved rest. It seems like 24 hours are not enough for completing these more or less pleasant activities.

Cleaning is, without a doubt, a tiresome and time-consuming process, especially if your kids consider the walls a canvas and the living room floor a playground where they can scatter all the toys. Here are a few tips that can help you keep the house clean and find time to do the things you love.

• Even if you are a stay-at-home mom, you might still find yourself unable to deal with all cleaning tasks you have to complete for the day, especially if you live in a spacious house and nobody else, but you take care of the cleanliness. That’s why you are advised to split up the tiresome cleaning chores into several manageable tasks. The best way to achieve this is to set up a cleaning schedule and assign a cleaning task for each day.

• Make an evaluation of your time. If you are among those people who tend to take “small” one-hour breaks between the duties they are supposed to perform, don’t be surprised if you never have time for yourself. Instead of procrastinating, focus all your efforts on completing the tasks efficiently and they, you will be able to enjoy some free time.

• There are some days when you just feel under the weather, you are unproductive and easily distracted. In days like this, the last thing you want to think of is keeping the house clean. Yet, you can still take up cleaning and tidying up procedures that take care of themselves. Pushing the button of the dishwasher or the washing machine is not that tiresome, right?

• Cleaning duties will be much easier if you can rely on the help of the other family members. Actually, engaging your kids into cleaning activities is an excellent way for teaching them some essential skills. For instance, your kids can learn the importance of being organized through cleaning and this will be extremely helpful at a later stage for sure.

If you consider it appropriate, follow Shiny Carpets suggestion to set a timer and perform 5 or 10-minute clean-ups in every room. Wipe the spills from the countertops, treat the stains on the carpet with a suitable detergent, mop the floors, sanitize the kitchen sink.
Organize stuff and know the place of every item. Always keep similar items together and always put stuff back in place after you have used it. You can even ask your kids to gather all the toys in the contained they belong to. This way, they will learn to sort out and prioritize, so you kill two birds with one stone. You have fewer cleaning tasks and teach your kids invaluable personal skills.

Don’t forget that if you feel you cannot deal with so many tasks at once, you can always arrange professional helpers. Take a look at the prices your local cleaning company offers and contact them to find out more about the cleaning service. That will not only save you a lot of time, but will also ensure the dirt-free environment at home. After all, there is a reason why cleaners, employed with trustworthy cleaning companies are called professionals.

Animal 4D+ Alphabet Interactive Cards Review

I am one of those mommas that believes in enrichment classes. One of the most recent ones that caught my attention is called Code Juniors. As our generation revolves, teaching methods has also changed drastically as well. Flash cards are probably one of the most common cards moms/teachers/guardian starts of with for their children when it comes to learning. Well, that was me 5 years back! I still remember being excited receiving a pack of flashcards when my daughter was one years of age. I was one of those hardcore mommas where i constantly read/teach her with them. But today flash cards are no longer the same. It’s no longer 2D and boring but have became interactive flash cards!

A couple of weeks back i received one of the most amazing gifts any mother can share/teach/play with their children. These are the amazing Animal 4D+ Alphabet Interactive Flash Cards from Code Juniors. At first these cards looks just the same as any other ordinary cards you may find at any Montessori and Bookshop. However, as i read the instructions and began to download the app i began to understand the miraculous wonder these interactive cards are for the next generation of time.

image

The instructions are extremely simple and easy to understand. I was really excited to share with my children and i couldn’t wait to see their reactions to these interactive cards.

image

By placing the cards of the respective animal, a 4D version of it pops up! *totally beyond coolness* My children were excited yet stunned at how these cards pops out an individual animal of its own while reading out its description.

image

They tried a few rounds of various animals from the cards and as each 4D animal pops up, i could see their eyes grew bigger with curiosity.

image

*Roars* says the lion…

image

Another amazing feature from these miraculous cards are the ability for the animal to interact with their food. Below shows a horse eating grass!!!! *call me “Kampung Style”  a.k.a (old fashion) but this is my first time seeing 4D+ interactive cards available in the market today to teach the children beyond the normal 2D conventional method.

image

Both my children were glued to these cards for hours. I love that it’s not only educational, it’s interactive, fun, and the children gets to experience a whole new level of creative thinking at the same time. I personally LOVE these cards.

These Animal 4D+ alphabet interactive cards are indeed an amazing development by Octagon Studio Augmented Reality creation. It is available for both Google Play or App Store!

Tips for Traveling To The Beach.

998970_10151917913348092_1651141950_nI have always loved to have a relaxing holiday by the beach. Staying in Malaysia i have been blessed to be able to head to the beach almost at anytime we wished, much thanks to our tropical climate here. The beach is probably the best destination to rest, recuperate, relax and enjoy. Studies said that having holiday at the Beach can help to unstress body and mind, other than that it will increasing positive mood.

10425394_10153221206663092_8545181352583056931_n

Going to beach seems to be easy, but there are many things you should prepare before you go. Here is some tips for travelling to the beach:
Use your sunblock – One of the most important thing before going to the beach. Use a proper sunblock with SPF to protect your skin from UV A and UV B. It also can prevent you to get a darker skin and sun brunt that could ruin not only your skin but also your holiday.
Wear sunglases – Although seeing the beach could relax your eyes, but the sun does not. After protecting your body from the sun, its also as important to protect your eyes. Ultraviolet can iritate your eyes and in an extreme case it can causing blindness. Bright light also can hurt the retina. So you have to protect your eyes with sunglases in order to keep your eyes healthy.
Choose the beach wisely – Even some beach are looked like the same, but you have to carefuly choose your beach destination. Pick the beach with good environment, bright sea colour, friendly local, good view and good resort is a must.
Go in the good timing (sun bright, no rain) – Good timing is crucial thing if you want to traveling to the beach. During the monsoon which is from October until late February is the time you have to avoid if you want to go to the beach. Many restaurant and resort are close because of the strong winds and heavy rains. Mid year is the best choice to go to the beach because it is a summer time. You can see beautiful sunrise or sunset across the beach and doing sunbathing in the afternoon.
Watersport – Challange your self in the beach! It’s the best alternate to having a healthy and fun sport plus holiday for you. Don’t forget to check what kind of watersport available in your beach destination such as jetski, parasailing, snorkeling or even scuba diving. Its the perfect way to keep your body fit in and after the holiday.

V Beauty Care and Body Care Review

Every woman deserves to be pampered once in a while. Recently, i was invited to try out a luxurious spa service over at V Beauty Care and Body Care at Oasis Square. It was a remarkable experience that had me longing to return back for more. I haven’t been well for a while now and being able to be pampered and rejuvenated overall was generally what my body needed.

Located at a strategic location, it’s interior is beautifully designed with a touch of Balinese concept. Their services are also influenced by the Indonesian style of body massages, facial and foot reflexology using top premium quality oils and creams imported in from United States.

I first my feet cleansed followed by an hour of foot reflexology massage.

image

Needless to say, it was extremely comfortable that i almost fell asleep.

image

Upon finishing my reflexology i was then taken into the waiting area before i was taken into the room. They have numerous list of services, however i had the luxury to try their basic full body detox massage, lymphatic shoulder massage and hot stone body massage on various part of my body.

image

Upon entering the room, i felt that it was beautifully decorated with a tranquil touch of luxury.

image

I was completely spoilt rotten during the massage session. I could feel how relaxed my body became as my masseuse (professionally trained and from Indonesia) went over the specific points on my body. I COMPLETELY LOVED IT!

imageThey used only premium quality oils and products that are known to be specifically designed just for the purpose of either for skin care and/or body care.

One of my favorite would be the Hot Stone Massage. It was warm at first but i could feel how relaxed my muscle became upon running the stones along my body. No doubt, it also helps with blood circulation.

Next, i was taken to have my nails done. What’s a spa without getting pretty nails, right?

image

Choosing from the pretty colors provided, i had chosen nail color from the Chanel range.

image

It was indeed a wonderful experience i had over at V Beauty Care & Body Care.

image

If you are indeed for a pampering session, i would highly recommend you to head over to try their services. Their staff are extremely helpful and their masseuse are professionally trained.

Right now, they are also running a promotion.
