Beauty Carousel

Beauty Carousel

Lashes as light as air,
Heavy eyelids no more!

Falsies are not new to me. In my previous job, I wear them every time I go to work. Hunting down a good pair can take quite a while and so far these are the things I look out for when considering them:

1. Lash Bone
The band that holds the individual strands of lashes. I'm not particularly fussy over this because as mentioned, I'm quite used to wearing lashes. I hate those that are extremely hard and inflexible, but anything ranging from average to extremely soft, or even those transparent options, are always a good choice. Occasionally I don't mind it being a little structured because that helps pushes onto the lids and viola, instant double eyelids!

2. Lashes
I like 3 types. Those that "grow" straight out, easily available. Those that crisscross but intersects near the middle leaving the ends fluttery, and not too heavy looking. And those that resembles little "U"s & "V"s at the lash bone, leaving the ends considerably straight (like the Girly Flare 06 ones from Miche Bloomin' Dream Lashes below!). Most of these are handmade, commonly sold in Taiwan. 
Material wise, I like them soft and natural looking, think real lashes. Not too glossy, nothing too plastic.

3. Price
I am not one to splurge on 100% mink lashes. I will go as far as paying for handmade, "real hair" falsies, or just ones that the number of re-use justifies the price.

So, I got to say, being completely new to the Miche Bloomin' Dream Lashes, I am a believer! (:

S o f t

Handmade from a highly resistant type of polyester instead of synthetic fiber, these dream lashes are as soft as real lashes. With a thread-like transparent lash bone, eye irritation is no longer an issue.

Definitely one of the softest lashes I've worn, and it looks crazy natural!

L i g h t

Carefully manufactured to be 20% lighter than the average falsies in the market, they are literally a breeze to put on! So lightweight you can wear them the entire day without realizing.

In fact, being someone who's used to wearing falsies, I cannot feel a thing with these lashes on. I can't quite believe how easy to wear and comfortable they are. One attempt and they're on! 

F i n e

Having problems with coarse and thick falsies that look unreal? These dream lashes mimic our lash hair so well with their ultra thin lash strands and tapered lash tip, even the texture is similar.

Fluttery lashes! I'm in love! <3

Besides the price, I think these lashes are an absolute investment. I'm not sure how many times they can be re-worn but I will whip them out for a glamorous evening dinner, definitely!

I am impressed.

Available at all Sasa outlets from April 2015, these lashes retails at SGD$19.90 for a set of 4 pairs.

Till the next!

Fire engine red! Every girl needs a red hot number to spice up any outfit. Perfect for a glamorous dinner or a fun night out.

No points for guessing which is my favourite part of this statement making pair!

Black, Size 6.5

A pair of simple basic flats is necessary in a girl's shoe collection. Amazing for lazy days where you still need to look cute. I love how it holds it's shape, making it look preppy when you're dressing a little more casual than usual!

All in all I love the buys from AMI Clubwear. Their range of shoes is mind-blowing. They also have apparels, accessories and all that good stuff. Definitely a site I will keep checking back, especially for great deals and discount codes during the festive seasons!

1923 - 2015, Remembering LKY.

The passing of a great man. Today, as a nation, we sent off our founding father.

In the last week, people prayed to their Gods, in their languages, for one man. The man who taught us what it felt like to be one, the man who showed us what no other nation has had the privilege to see, racial and religious harmony.

He who taught us in his own ways, like a father would his son. Strict, disciplined love, yet unconditional, selfless, and real. 

I will not be able to comprehend every deed he did, but as the flashback videos are being replayed, the speeches he once made, the dreams he had, and the ideals he stood for, are now deeply entrenched in my heart. 

At the end of the day, he worked for Singapore. All his life he gave. 

When he could have given his family, he gave his dedication to Singapore. 

From 3rd world to 1st world, in one generation. 

1968 was the year It Rained On Our Parade. Today at 12.30pm, the heavens cried while he departed the Parliament House for the last time, symbolising the beginning and end of an era. 

I am blessed, and honoured to have shared a huge historical era with the greatest man in Singapore. There can never be another man like him. 

The love that he had for this nation, his resilient fighting spirit, his fervour, will earn our respect for generations and generations to come.

As I observed a minute of silence together with the rest of my fellow Singaporeans today, I thank you for giving us all that you could have given. I thank you for the visionary that you are, and the foresight you possessed. I thank you for your tough love, standing by what you believed was best for us and not letting popularity and fame blind your decisions. I thank you for a clean and green city. I thank you for an education that rivals even the best systems in the world. I thank you for our world class airline, for without it I would never have seen the world. I thank you for an economy so  unbelievably strong for a nation so small. I thank you for giving us a future, and for giving our future generations a future. I thank you for the time you selflessly gave us when you could have spent it with your family. I thank God for lending you to us, so that it may better our lives in every way.

And now, it is time to return to Him. May you rest in peace. May you find joy in Heaven. May you reunite with the love of your life, and love each other more than you ever did on Earth. 

Thank you, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. 

I am proud to be a Singaporean, because of you.

Singapore National Pledge

We, the citizens of Singapore,
pledge ourselves as one united people,
regardless of race, language or religion,
