Bath & Body Works Collections

Tuesday, 2 February 2016

Have you ever entered a Bath & Body Works store? Being in the store is akin to a kid in the candy store for me because I loveeeee exploring the numerous selection of products available. I get to slowly discover the fragrances, test the shower gels and hand soaps at the in-store sink, and try body lotions, candles and room sprays all in this fragrance playground!

I have a huge variety of Bath & Body Works products at home ranging from their candles, hand soaps, body lotions and shower gels. I've been an ardent fan of the brand for years and I can tell you off the top of my head what some of my favourite signature Bath & Body Works smells are.

1. Sweet Pea 
My no. 1 ultimate favourite fragrance from the store mainly because I am never tired of it. The shower gel and body lotion stay on the entire day and my hands smell of the beautiful Sweet Pea for a few hours after using the hand soap. My girlfriends are obsessed with this smell too - you really have to try it to believe it for yourself.

2. Japanese Cherry Blossom
What's not to love about sakura!! I love the ice-cream flavour (lol) and Bath & Body Works managed to create such a beautiful smell that is pleasant and light, which reminds me of the Japan sakura season! The scented candle in this fragrance is my top pick!

3. Moonlight Path
For a more muted and musky fragrance, I'd choose Moonlight Path. The smell is very light and barely there but it is so comfortable and intimate, H definitely didn't mind the smell!

Bath & Body Works hails from USA and it is America's #1 fragrance brand, with over 20 unique fragrances blended exclusively to fit your unique personality. Recently, I was introduced to a new smell - the Warm Vanilla Sugar. 

Everyone knows that vanilla smells awesome and this fragrance from their Holiday Traditions collection left me feeling warm and cozy over the festive season.

The amazing gift set comes with a body spray, shower gel, body lotion and body cream. Cream tends to be a little thicker than lotion so I'd always apply it on my body's drier areas such as my feet and elbows to give them more tender loving care ;)

Head over to the nearest Bath and Body Works Store for the most amazing deals in town and find the perfect gift!

Bath & Body Works is available at
- Takashimaya #B1-10/11

Prepping for a Big Night Out with Vanitee

Thursday, 28 January 2016

I am terrible at styling my hair and applying eyeshadows. I'm pretty sure you already know that from the pictures I post on my Instagram haha. Before every special event, I always prefer to head down to my hairstylist to get my hair done but that would mean looking absolutely ridiculous in the public transport in my 4 inch heels and floor-length outfits. Either that, or the hair salon is not located in the same district as my event venue and that will mean making a detour and incurring extra taxi fares.

Learning about the house call services provided through Vanitee is truly a life saviour!

Vanitee is an online booking destination for quality beauty services from sought-after independent and emerging artists. The platform bridges the gap between beauty artists and customers, you can book a massage, facial, brow and lash services, etc.

I was headed for a formal event last week and decided to try out the Vanitee app for the first time to engage a hair+makeup artist, as well as a manicurist, straight to my house! The app is very transparent and there are LOTS of beauty artists in each category to choose from. You can read reviews, check prices and browse through past works before choosing your favourite! Moreover, chat with the artists through the app and get immediate responses!

After much surfing around, I engaged @kel to do my hair+makeup and @nailedyougood to dress my nails before the event! My appointments were confirmed right away through the app and text messages.

Kel and Rachel arrived right on time at my doorstep and we immediately got down to business! Both of them needed a table, chairs and electrical plugs to work so my dining table was the perfect choice since the area was spacious, and everyone can move around easily without getting in each other's way.

They came well-prepared and I love their professionalism. My gelish nails were completed in an hour and hair+makeup was done in 1.5 hour, all in the comforts of my own home!

Once I've changed, I was ready to go. No rushing around in heels and reaching my destination looking flustered or feeling sticky from perspiration. The convenience is unbeatable and I'm already looking forward to my next house call experience with Vanitee

With CNY around the corner, I'm sure everyone's looking to doll up and get ready for the festive season. You'll be delighted to know I have a 20% off discount code for all beauty services on Vanitee. Download the app and check out with JESSICA20 (for 1st time users only, code expires 29 February 2016) to book your nail, hair, makeup, and even eyelash extension appointments! Oh, and for all bookings made from now till 14 February, you'll be entitled to a sure-win ang pow! There are $30 Vanitee credits, cute Vanitee Unicat (their mascot) totes, etc all up for grabs!

SOIGNÉ's Second Collection

Monday, 25 January 2016

I know it's been a long wait but SOIGNÉ is finally ready with our second collection! Just in time for Lunar New Year too :) We mainly stuck to the mono/neutral colour palette but included a special lipstick red design just for this festive period. I'm gonna be wearing this dress on the first day of CNY - super excited!

But of course, we made it in our favourite black/white too hehehe gonna be keeping this piece as well!

From this collection onwards, we will be including size XS so measurements for sizes S to L have been adjusted, do take note! As a reference, I wear XS for all designs and it should fit UK 6 perfectly.

In other news, SOIGNÉ The Label is also stocked at Revolte x SheShops #02-02/03 at Wheelock Place. We will be there till June 2016 so if you prefer shopping at a brick and mortar store, you can head down to check out and try the selection.

Our new collection will be available for sale online today, 25 January in the evening so I'll see you over at SOIGNÉ! :)

If you're wondering, I'm still working from home because of the convenience of storing SOIGNÉ inventories over at EBC Storage! I love the fact that it's only a 10-minute drive from our place and that it's opened 24/7. H and I always head down at weird hours, sometimes even at past midnight to get stocks lol.

The unit I'm at has racks installed so at one glance, I know where each design and sizes are at. There's no clutter at home or at the storage space. Not only that, you have the option to choose whether you want an air-conditioned unit or one without air-conditioning depending on your needs. I store my inventories at an air-conditioned unit, of course. Wouldn't want the clothes to grow mould!

I'm so used to the system and convenience at EBC Storage I've extended my stay at the storage unit by another 6 months ;) SOIGNÉ is still a relatively new start-up so I understand that every cent counts. So trust me, the prices are very reasonable and it wouldn't burn a hole in your pocket.

You can contact EBC Storage here for more information!
