Michael Kors Sexy Sunset

Sunday, 14 February 2016

Introducing a new limited edition fragrance by @MichaelKors - Sexy Sunset. Housed in a signature Michael Kors Collection bottle, the fragrance is inspired by the captivating and seductive glow of sunset, no matter where you are in the world. The pink liquid mirrors the rays of a sunset during the golden minute just before the sun disk disappears below the horizon. 

The scent of Sexy Sunset is a sweet combination of fruit and floral that is ideal for summer. I put together an outfit that best describes what the scent is to me - a floral print summer dress made of a light georgette fabric, a woven straw crossbody and strappy sandals, the perfect ensemble for 30ºC.

One of the best sunsets I've caught was in Bali. The brilliant colours surrounding the sun, coupled with the evening breeze and soft sand under my feet - it was a beautiful experience. The Michael Kors ensemble above is the perfect beach get-up.

Not forgetting my bottle of Michael Kors Sexy Sunset, the complementing blend of Nashi Pear, Blackcurrant, Freesia, Lotus Flower Accord (Top) and an alluring bouquet of florals (Peony, Gardenia, Rose Bouton, Magnolia, Jasmine Sambac), grounded in a sensual blend of woods (Sandalwood, Helvetolide, Cedarwood, Vanilla) produce a warm and seductive scent for the confident Michael Kors woman. Michael Kors Sexy Sunset makes the spirit of beach getaways last even after the sun sets.

Michael Kors Sexy Sunset is available exclusively at all Sasa outlets.

Gift Ideas from Uchino

Friday, 12 February 2016

Ever since H and I got our own place, we grew more particular about the quality of the products we use for the house and for ourselves. It's not that we always spend an exorbitant amount to get products with good quality... We just spend more time doing research and then spend even more time in departmental stores browsing and touching all the items on display before deciding on which to get. 

When it comes to products that touches our skin like bed linens, towels, clothes, etc, H is especially picky. He likes soft and smooth materials, high thread counts, fabrics that are gentle on the skin. When I went to pick up some towels and sleep wear from Uchino (located at Takashimaya departmental store), I KNEW at first touch that H would be satisfied with the brand.

The Marshmallow Touch range from Uchino made of 100% cotton is especially soft without compromising on absorbency. It is fluffy but the fluff does not shed or stick to the body after every wipe if you know what I mean. So gentle to the skin, your babies would appreciate it as well.

As you might've guessed, Uchino is a Japanese household brand and it is dedicated to create the world’s finest towels and towel wear with quality materials according to Uchino quality standard. Great emphasis has been placed on the manufacturing process, and the towels have acquired Oeko-Tex® Class 1 (for infants) Certification, the most stringent quality standard for the towel industry. This means that the items are pleasant to use and can be trusted even when coming into contact with babies’ mouths.

For all towels purchases with Uchino, you can opt for the embroidery service including words and/or icons. The towel embroidery machine you see above is one-of-its-kind and it is the only one available in Singapore currently.


And there you have it!

Currently, H and I use different coloured towels for differentiation purposes (I don't want to share bacteria) but my ultimate favourite colour is still white for the house. With Uchino's embroidery service, I can have all the white towels I want!

I chose the cursive font 'cause I love how elegant it looks and yup, added a cute macaron on my bath towel too haha.

Personally, I think these personalised towels would make super awesome housewarming gifts. I've been there, done that (you know, getting a new house, housewarming parties, blah blah), and I would really appreciate receiving towels. Honestly. As you know, most couples would decide on the electronics and furnishing themselves and a lot of relatives/friends would end up getting add-ons (that are not necessities), such as blender/juicer/etc, which not many would actually use... But towels! Everyone needs towels. These would be such a treat!

I also picked out a set of sleepwear each for H and I. They are made of cotton gauze which is the softest and most lightweight fabric around. The material is very airy and breathable, suitable even for our climate, and extremely comfy to wear in an air-conditioned room. New sleepwear for the upcoming Lunar New Year - checked!

Uchino is available at major departmental stores such as Takashimaya, Tangs, Isetan, etc.

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!
