One of the biggest beauty tips that’s been buzzing about in the beauty market. From Cosmopolitan to Cleo, to beauty gurus on Youtube or your chatty Cathy hairdressers at the salon – The truth is universal. Shampooing your hair everyday can cause hair loss, thinning and can even stunt hair growth.
As Marilyn Monroe once famously quoted in her light breathy voice, as if like smoke on gossamer, she went, “Beneath the makeup and behind the smile, I am just a girl who wishes for the world.” That’s true, but makeup plays an important part in our society today – First impressions, job interviews, cheerleading tryouts, trying to impress that cute guy at the salad outlet that you frequent, the possibilities are endless!
It’s neither a holiday nor are we celebrating yuletide joy. Heck, we’re powering through a sweltering February, stuck with the exhaust of countless bus rides, massive #OOTD influxes, and tiring gym sessions that we drag our butts to in order to engage in that pre-Chinese New Year pineapple tart debauch.
Singapore ain’t no London, that’s for sure. With our diamond in the rough evolution hasn’t always been a promising one, with most of our country’s crème de la crème having been rigorously renovated, investigated and blogged about, along with our Insta-envy youths (and aunties, you’d be surprised) turning what’s left of our off-the-beaten-track treasures into an ugly filtering, snapping, cropping carbuncle. (Café lattes look best with VSCO Cam’s B5 filter. I’m just saying.)
Having mentioned a nail favourite of ours in a recent article of ours, we’re still going out of our minds with the obvious lack of nail creativity. Ladies, you feel me – Remember those ‘uhhhh’ moments at the nail salon when your manicurist prompts you for your nail colour? Yep, we’ve all been there. What with our once-strong relationship with the bold block of colour lacking in piquancy and zest, we miss the bite-impact of our once statement-making nails.
In an image-driven world where we are constantly under the magnifying glass and close inspection for any and all blemishes and flaws, a pair of right sunnies give you a wee semblance of staying anonymous. Although come to think of it, who was Batman trying to fool?
Well, we can proudly say that we powered through 2014 by playing the tough devil-may-care leading lady (or men). Despite our fervent candor of our attitude towards last year, we are more than delighted as the month of January comes to a close, gearing up for fabulous February.
Who will be the new superstars of 2015? We’re curious. Our condolences go out to the starlet of yesteryear, kale, having been touted as Singapore’s ‘Western Kai Lan’ veggie, kale walks alongside it’s equally successful counterparts such as quinoa, chia seeds and kimchi.
Nonetheless, folks are getting tired of all the same ole’ beauty blend shakes and smoothies, dying to test out an all new enriched brand of superfoods. Still, ever wonder what makes a superfood so… super?
A friend of mine, Cassy, recently got into her first serious relationship in 20 years. During our weekly happy hour at Starbucks last week, we were in the midst of our calorie-laden sugar high when she giggled and asked: “Why is it that when I’m with a relationship, I invest my heart and soul into keeping the spark alive and pleasing the other person that I completely ignore my own hobbies and eventually lose myself?”
Don’t deny it, we’ve all been there. Truth be told, I didn’t even start mugging for my finals till two weeks before the exams (highly not recommended) and I realised that I could potentially end up as Squidward in his cardboard box.
Nevertheless, here are a couple of handy tips and tricks to help give you that little push, and perhaps even straighten up your life.
