Sample Room is on a lovely roll the last couple of weeks bringing us more and more prized winners in the skin care, bath, and body arena. This just in — have you tired Olay Total Effects? I’d be the first to admit that it’s been a while since I used Olay (for the face at least…I love their moisturizing body washes!) and today couldn’t be an even better opportunity to reunite with this generation after generation beauty staple.

Happy Skin Beauty In Bloom Summer Collection

Summer has officially arrived at the Happy Skin counters and I LOVE IT! While we’ve seen these beauty candies not too long ago at Beauty Bar, it’s only last Thursday that the Happy Skin team launched the InstaBeauty Blur Cream and Eye Am The One Holy Grail Mascara together with the limited edition summer collection. Beauty, tea, and cheese. Can’t quite argue with that! ;)


Oh my cheese! <3

Are you ready to meet and greet the latest from Happy Skin? :)

Summer Around The World at Beauty Bar


WARNING: Major enabling below c/o a super tan kitty!

Happy Hump Day! :) How’s summer treating you? As you can see, I am baking every stressful bit away in very high SPF (always!). If you’re stuck in the city or the heat’s just not your flavour of summer fun, Beauty Bar is determined to take you around the world to various summer getaways without leaving their stores!

Yesterday afternoon, in between another killer dental appointment and bottomless coffee, I hopscotched my way to Beauty Bar Central Square in BGC to join other beauty addicts for an afternoon of chic trips and treats. Entering Central Square, I was welcomed by a Summer Carnivale slash hair styling bar.

I naturally took this opportunity to amp up some volume on my tresses. ;)


Hi Liz! :)

Guests had the chance to get a touch-up at the Parisian Summer corner. I on the other hand checked out various brands and testers and I chanced on this Smashbox bestseller called Soft Lights in PRISM. I’ve had this in the past and if you’re having a not-so pretty day, just brush this on your cheeks for an instant and extra fine lift without harsh shimmers.

My kind of makeup boudoir! <333

Plains & Prints Spring-Summer 2015

Plains & Prints’ collection previews are proving to be my favourite payday vice quarter after quarter. It’s not the most economical activity to indulge in but it’s the best way for me to inject colours left and right in my closet ahead of the upcoming fashion season.

This spring-summer, Plains & Prints introduces five bright, breezy, and bold collections that are absolutely stunning:

  • Hawaii is mostly made up of fun yet sophisticated silhouettes in tropical hues of green, yellow, salmon and peach giving us that perfect look for a summer getaway.
  • Tahiti, being a tropical paradise, is comprised of various shades of orange, bright cobalt blue, mint green and pink with kaleidoscopic floral and feather prints.
  • The Cape Cod collection gives us a sliver of what the East Coast has to offer by peppering our closets with intricate prints of bold flowers with gemstone prints in shades of yellow, blue, purple, blush, and white.
  • The Scandinavian collection’s for the ladies who loves clean and fresh prints in light and breezy silhouettes in pastel hues accented by washed-out neons and blues.
  • For the adventurista, the Metamorphosis capsule collection’s guaranteed to turn heads with fun and cute patterns splashed with insect prints in warm blush, blues, and off-white.

In this shopping trip, I purchased 3 dresses after trying around a dozen. I got two dresses from the spring-summer release and I love how these dresses can be worn day or night whether in the city or in any of the locations mentioned above. :)
