Happy Sunday, everyone! Is it just me, or is time passing us by at an alarming speed?! As we approach the end of the first month of 2014, we welcome yet another new beginning – Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year, if you prefer)! It’s happening in 5 days, people! Ermahgerd. I am so ill-prepared for the festival. It’s OK, I’m just going to treat it like a regular long weekend. If you’ve already started snacking on New Year goodies, you might want to take a look at this chart of calories I’ve created so you can, umm, watch that waistline! ;P BellaBox opens the year with their Chinese New Year Beauty Packet - let’s see what I got in mine! :)

Clad in light brown tissue paper reminiscent of the so-very-Chinese classic brown wrapper and fastened with a slim festive red ribbon, our Beauty Packet looks to be in the perfect outfit to celebrate the season. January’s card is wearing a cheongsam, too. Haa… ;D

Jade In the Press: BellaBox Bloggers Beauty Picks x Sponsored Review: What’s Inside BellaBox September 2013 – Pink Me Up!

Sponsored Review

Hey guys, how’s the week treating you! I’ve been trying to organise my thoughts and blogging schedule so apart from work and other stuff, that’s kept me a bit busy. In the blink of an eye we are approaching the end of September, and boy you have no idea how much more I have to share with you! Well, one thing at a time. Today, I’m gonna be writing about Jade In the Press: BellaBox Bloggers Beauty Picks as well as a review of What’s Inside BellaBox September 2013 – Pink Me Up!

Recently, BellaBox wanted some feedback and so they asked me to single out my favourite item from their e-shop. You may recall me revealing a pack of Wotnot Facial Wipes in my August BellaBox; that was what came to mind when I was asked to pick my favourite! In July, Harper’s BAZAAR quoted me on my favourite BellaBox discovery – Cellilux’s Glacial Mineral Gel. This time round I simply had to highlight my love for Wotnot Facial Wipes because they are the most luxurious, awesomest, softest facial wipes to caress my skin ever. This I swear. And they take my makeup right off. You’ve got to try!

And so the BellaBox team put together an email newsletter, quoting yours truly on it. In the photo below, which BellaBox also shared on their Facebook page, you’ll see what I said about Wotnot Facial Wipes. :) When you purchase my pick from BellaBox’s e-shop, you’ll receive a gift of Institut Karite cream (30ml).

Happy mid-week, everyone! I hope all of you have been good. The week started off pretty rough for me – I had to have some blood work done yesterday morning because the doctor suspected serious illness, and I was so worried I couldn’t concentrate or focus on anything at all. I almost cried at the doctor’s! I just came back from the clinic this evening with my test results – I’m super healthy!!! I am so, so, SO relieved! :D OK, enough of my life. Today, I’m showing you what’s inside VanityTrove July 2013 – Midsummer Gala!  

How many of you are subscribers? Good for you if you are, cos I think the July edition is a pretty generous one. If you haven’t subscribed yet, you may very well decide to do so after reading this post! :P

As usual, included in the trove is a mini magazine containing information on the month’s featured products, beauty and fashion tips and other useful grooming information. Always an interesting read!

Sponsored Review: What’s Inside BellaBox June 2012 – Summer Upgrade

Sponsored Review

Sweet weekend! It’s Saturday, and I’m blogging really early in the morning cos after this I’m running out for some fun! Speaking of fun, have you visited the Harry Potter exhibition at the ArtScience Museum already? I plan to go sometime early July. My my my… can’t believe it’s actually happening!

Okay, you may have read my reviews of the previous editions of BellaBoxFebruary, March, April and May. This month, however, there has been some changes at BellaBox.

Firstly, notice something about this box? There isn’t any postal mark on it! That’s because these boxes are now hand-delivered by BellaBox, even on Sundays. I was surprised when I received mine at the office hand-delivered by a nice lady (instead of via the usual registered post). At first I thought she was here to see someone from the office, and coincidentally had a BellaBox with her. Haha!

With the new delivery arrangement, and other factors including BellaBox working directly with the brands and/or their authorised distributors for quality assurance, there’s been a price increase! New members who sign up on or after 21 June 2012 will pay SGD19.95 per month (instead of the usual SGD15). Existing members will continue to pay SGD15 for the July 2012 edition, and will only have to pay SGD19.95 from August 2012 onwards. For those of you on a one-year subscription, the new rate will apply on the next billing cycle. More details available on BellaBox’s site.

What is your preferred product for coverage? Is it liquid, cream or powder foundation? Or a simple tinted moisturiser? What about BB (short for Blemish Balm) Cream?

The BB Cream craze saw lots of makeup fans scrambling to sweep them off the shelves. Gradually, more brands started to produce their own BB Creams and with that came a variety of selection available on the market. Avid fans of the BB Cream would have probably amassed a collection by now! ;)

Remember the Silkygirl goodie bag? I picked this out from the bag – Magic BB Cream in 01 Natural! This is the first of the ten items in the bag which I’ll be reviewing. How exciting! :)
