Happy Lunar New Year Y’All! Plus My Very Simple CNY Nails…

Well… I’ll admit that throwing in my nails here is my attempt at giving this entry a little more content than the usual “HEY GUYS, IT’S CNY~ HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!” shoutout entry.

I mean I could really just do that since I’m pressed for time anyway (noticed my rushed typing tone? No? Okay…) but yes, really though, a very very Happy Chinese / Lunar New Year to everyone who celebrates it and for those who don’t, this year’s holiday falls on a pretty good break so have fun, go abroad or just chill at home since most shops outside are closed anyway, heh!

It’s the year of the sheep this year and time to tell myself that I have moved past the 24 years old / 2nd cycle of my horoscope mark and am moving into my mid-twenties. Gasp!

I know it’s still a rather young age but the continually growing number is starting to scare me. Like… time really really flies. Wow.

For all you know I could be looking back at this post in 2030 and feel like it was only yesterday that I typed this up. Eeps.

So anyway, about my nails…

I had a grand scheme in mind to do some nail wraps, perhaps, or throw on a little fancy manicure with different colors and perhaps some intricate patterns by busting into that Sephora Nail Art Kit I’ve gotten from their holiday releases last year but alas, time was not on my side so here’s my incredibly plain (in comparison to all the bling most people have) nail combo going on right now.

I wanted to paint all one shade (that 3CE VL04 shade) – thank you for this beautiful shade Eliza! – but I randomly dug out this lovely NARS red, the color I had on just before this, and couldn’t resist popping it on again. Even if its just an accent nail.

At least in this way if anyone is going to ask where’s my red for Chinese New Year I can point to my nails, right? Heh!

And that’s that!

Super quick entry, which still isn’t as quick as I would like.

I hope everyone has a blast this Chinese New Year be it feasting or catching up with old time relatives / friends! I feel Chinese New Year is quite a tiring celebration but it’s lively nonetheless so no matter how much beef I have with it, a tiny part of me still looks forward to it.

Wrapping it up, my space will take a little break over the 3 days of CNY but I’ll have more posts coming back at’cha once Sunday comes around and more next week, definitely!

It’s like my very last burst of posts I have planned before New Job so… yeah. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some up after those but we’ll see.. All I’m saying is, thereafter, no promises. Heh!

 

In the meanwhile, have you read about my Clear SK Cellulite Buster Treatment and V Face Shaper treatment from yesterday? I’ve got 20 sessions (per treatment) to giveaway so go check those entries out!

 

Thanks for reading again you guys! <3

Happy Lunar New Year!

Here’s wishing all my readers a very Happy Lunar New Year!

If you celebrate this festivity, I wish you collect loads of angpows and if you’re giving them out, I hope you win it all back at card games or mahjong! Ha!

’tis the season for feasting on heaty and unhealthy snacks / food so remember to stay hydrated to keep from falling sick! Your skin would thank you for it too!

It’s the year of the Horse again and it’s a reminder that I’m at yet another 12 year cycle in my life. Omygawd I feel old. I know I am at a pretty ‘young’ stage of life but still, the thought of being 24 is daunting. It felt like just yesterday that I turned 21, where did all that time go?!

Nonetheless, hope this year turns out smooth sailing for everyone out there!

Have a good one you all! ♥

Baby's CNY Outfits! (Thanks to FOX Fashion)

This post would be the rare nod to my mommy side of life and also a more personal glimpse into our little family time, outside of my love for makeup and dolling up.

Over the recent weekend, we were invited to a preview of FOX Fashion (or simply FOX)’s upcoming Chinese New Year collection. In the western world, this would probably be better termed as Spring Summer given the floral prints, soft flowy materials and bright colors used.

Though in Singapore, with Chinese New Year sneaking up very quickly this year, it’s a great place to drop by and shop up a storm for the kids.

As adults, I know I personally can’t be too bothered with shopping for new clothes every New Year but when it comes to dressing kids up, it’s quite a fun affair. What’s more if you shop at FOX, it is inexpensive and stylish too!

My snaps are a little more biased towards baby and girls because I have a baby girl but they have items for boys and ‘big kids’ too!

I’ll also need your help towards the end, so stay tuned! :D

There were some bites on hand given the event was held in the early morning but it seems like everyone was too busy shopping to eat!

While I digested my surroundings, baby was attracted to the little kids corner with kid-sized tables and toys. Hubs also took the liberty to start warming baby up with some shades, heh!

Alright, on to the clothes.

Everything looked so girly, cute and small I had to resist trying everything on baby.

I think unlike me, baby probably isn’t too keen on multiple outfit changes. By the third outfit she was yawning and frowning so I’m glad she managed to tank on through the whole morning – phew!

The entire FOX store at City Square was decked out in their New Arrivals, be it casual tees to jeggings (super cute on babies) to shorts, pretty dresses, camis, and more!

Baby shoes are so adorable these days. Even though we know they will outgrow them pretty quick, it’s still hard to resist.

We picked out a couple of pretty dresses (since Baby has an abundance of casual wear and rompers already) and it was off to the changing room!

Baby was required to snap 2 outfits for the first 2 days of Chinese New Year. While she really is quite a tomboy-ish, curious and cheeky girl, I think we did quite a good job giving her a pretty dainty and girly appeal in her outfits, heh!

I was so glad that hubs (and his parents) were around to help too as I didn’t think I could manage with baby alone at the event!

See, the enthusiastic daddy making sure his girl looks her best!

Would you like to see Baby posing with the 2 Outfits?

Yes, hop on over to FOX Fashion’s album and while you’re at it, drop baby a LIKE if you like her outfits! It’s a super quick process and all you need is a Facebook account, which most already have! So, do drop her a vote if you can!

What’s in it for you?

You may just get to walk away with a Canon Selphy Photo Printer (worth S$199) for yourself, along with a FOX CNY outfit too!

That is if baby comes up as the winning kid!

Do help spread the word (use http://on.fb.me/votebabyk to share) as well, that would be greatly appreciated :)

While baby was required to pose for 2 outfits for the little contest, we decided on dressing her up for a spunky third outfit. Just for kicks. I think while the florals are really pretty this best suits my little girl’s cheeky personality!

In the meanwhile, do check out FOX Fashion if you still need to get some CNY Clothes shopping done for your kiddos!

Thanks for reading and thanks for voting~
