Hair

Hair styling tricks: With only 30 seconds to make myself look more made up. I tie my hair into a low pony-tail and invert it. They call it the inverted pony tail ( I think?). You’ll end up with a classy look in a fuss-free way
Hair colour: Leaning towards more neutral and natural hair shades recently. Mainly brown and dark hair tones. I loved Liese throughout my days at uni as it was a quick and fuss-free (again) way for me to get my hair evenly dyed. Now I head to Salon Vim for hair colouring
Hair cut: Fiona from Salon Vim.
Hair treatments: Home treatments. I love the FRESH Seaberry Revitalizing Conditioner and FRESH Pomegranate conditioner (unavailable in Singapore unfortunately)

Lifestyle

Favourite vacation memory and why? Bhutan. To be at one of the happiest places in the world surrounded by nature, hills and mountains. Being able to lay under the blanket of stars while embraced by the cold crisp air and in the company of the best guides. It was a physically challenging, wholesome and rewarding experience
Which is your dream vacation spot that you’ve always wanted to go, but haven’t? To see the northern lights and spend a night in an igloo
How do you relax and unwind? Spending some quiet time at a cafe or in my airbnb while I’m abroad or with a sheet mask every night in bed with my favourite songs playing in the background
Flat lay secret: Have spare surfaces and props on hand (ie. tiles, blankets, throws and little items to fill up empty spaces within a flat lay)
What is your favourite TV show? Korean Dramas like Goblin and W
