One of the absolute favourite parts of my job is that I get to try all these amazing beauty products. I always get so excited to try them out when I get them! Of all the products that I test, some of them make it into my makeup routine, like the Max Factor Facefinity 3-In-1 Foundation. This is the latest product that I tested that got me really excited. It’s a primer, concealer and foundation all in one – such a perfect multi-tasker for my busy schedule.
TAIPEI WITH FANCL
I can’t believe that it’s been 3 months since I went to Taipei with Fancl. Is it just me, or do you find that time is absolutely flying by like crazy this year? I’ve been meaning to blog about this trip because we went to so many amazing places that I have to share with all of you. So, here goes!
Adventures in Guangzhou
I’m tucked in bed at the Hilton, Tianhe with a cup of chamomile tea, Maxwell (one of my favourite singers) playing at the background, a snail mask on my face and writing this blog post right at this moment. Ahh…life is good.
Oh darn, I just remembered that I forgot to follow on with facial wash after my facial scrub in the shower!! I wonder if that’s ok? This skincare regime business can get so complicated sometimes. If you’re curious, I’m currently using Skin Inc’s Pure Prodew Cleanser, La Mer’s Refining Facial Scrub – I usually leave this on for about 5-10 minutes and then remove it in circular motions. It really gets rid of grime, and makes it easy to pop stubborn blackheads after. I major love this scrub.
I met with Stephanie today and she took me for hi-tea at the Four Seasons Hotel on the 70th floor. The view up there is amazing. Check out my first photo! We spent a good couple of hours taking in the view and chatting over bite-size savouries and sweets. We went to Taikoo Hui Mall after (the mall’s name is funny isn’t it? It makes a lot more sense in Mandarin) where most of the big brands are at. I noticed that a lot of coveted designer products were available at this mall. The Chanel Boy bag was available in many styles and colours and I spotted the furry monster and the Karl Lagerfeld keychain at Fendi. This mall also houses Bread Talk, Crystal Jade and Food Junction…very Singaporean. I first thought that it was a Singapore collaboration – apparently not. Stephanie took me to Mei Xin Restaurant opposite the mall after some shopping ( I may have remembered the name wrongly) where we were joined by her husband. I had the best roast goose there! I’m salivating just thinking about it.
Oops! It’s 2am, so I’d better stop thinking about food and head to bed. Off to wash off this snail mask off my face. Goodnight!
You were the one,
I wanted most to stay.
But time could not be kept at bay.
The more it goes,
the more it’s gone,
the more it takes away.
