THE PLACE TO BE THIS CHRISTMAS - Universal Studios Singapore!
Apart from the usual fun rides and beautiful Christmas decorations (as expected of USS), they've also planned an exciting list of activities and exhibitions just for us to enjoy this festive season!
To mention a few:
• Santa's Village with the shoemaker, Mrs Claus' house, a little toy factory which the kids would love
• DJ Eddy Elf’s Rocking Radio Station
• Christmas Everywhere, where there will be hourly snowfall every day from 12PM
• Meet and Greet our favourite characters whom are all dressed up for Christmas
• Record-breaking Universal Journey
& many more!
And less than 10 minutes into USS, Sean actually volunteered me up on stage with DJ Eddy Elf & Woody Woodpecker for a Carol-oke hahah!
I was totally caught off guard omg :X
For those who feel bummed out that your friends/ relatives get to go overseas for Christmas while you're here in Singapore, don't be!
There's snowfall every hour at USS from 12PM onwards, and it's pretty fun too!
When we're walking around USS and it "snows" it always gives you a happy feeling haha.
And of course the highLIGHT of this whole trip to USS, the
824,961 light bulbs, 8 themed zones, and a Guinness World Records to boast of.
You seriously HAVE TO bring along your camera/ charge your phone sufficiently for this!!
The whole place is sooooo pretty, I'd totally pay for a ticket to USS, not take any of the rides, just to see this~~~~ *_*
Brace yourselves, tons of photos coming up!
[GIVEAWAY AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST]
Inspiration can come from everywhere.. and for me, food is my muse!
Experimented with NYX's eyeshadows and coloured lipstick in an attempt to do a wearable cosmic themed make up, inspired by Boufe Boutique Cafe's new Milky Way cake.
Also, I couldn't resist adding some sparkly glitter "freckles" under my eyes and across my cheeks!

Milky Way cake by Boufe Boutique Cafe
Delicious, light white chocolate yogurt mousse wrapped around a calamansi jelly center, this magical looking cake definitely deserves its place as Boufe's new top selling cake!
One of the simplest but most rewarding DIYs ever!
These Unicorn Make Up Brushes are cute, practical, affordable, and really special, I'm sure you & your friends will love them!
And since Christmas is around the corner, the Icicle Christmas tree ornament should be easy to get!
I got mine from Cold Storage at just $3.90 for a whole pack.
I stained my brushes using blue & pink food colouring just for aesthetic purposes of this video.
They're easily removed with make up brush cleansers and I can proceed to use them for my make up as usual :)

I love everything about Christmas - the food, the sparkly lights, the sweater weather, hot chocolate with marshmallows, presents, people are more smiley, friendlier & nicer, the joyous Christmas songs...
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE CHRISTMAS!!! ^~^
Just some pictures I took today~

ORDER YOUR XMAS HAMPER NOW:
What better way to show your loved ones you care this Christmas than a full box of delicious homemade goodies?
No preservatives added, so please take note of the expiry dates stated at the bottom of each product to ensure optimal freshness! :)
Starting off with these adorable looking Christmas Tree Marshmallows, they are pretty much the fluffiest marshmallows I've ever tasted!
The difference between a homemade marshmallow and those basic commercially packed sort is so stark I tell you!
With Boufe's in-house made one, I could eat them all day cause they really just melt in your mouth~~
As simple as it may look/ sound, these Almond Biscuits are actually really really good!
Made with fresh ingredients and no artificial flavourings, each bite is a burst of ground almond fragrance.
I finished the entire bottle in one day cause it's so light, crispy and easy to eat, and it doesn't hurt my teeth :P
I've always been quite confident of how yummy the brownies I bake are, and always secretly think my brownies are nicer than a lot of other cakey brownies out there LOL :X
I think this is the first Brownie I put into my mouth and like "wow, this is good" hahahaha!!
It's fudgey and rich, just the way I like it, and while it's not the chewy sort, it melts in your mouth - a texture I've never experienced with other brownies before.
So I definitely give this a thumbs up and strongly recommend this, especially if you have a sweet tooth!
For those in the mood for something more wholesome, and yet don't want to miss out on the sweet Christmas goodies, Boufe's got it covered for you in the Boufe Christmas Hamper!
Their in-house baked Honey Granola are packed with fiber and vitamins, coated by the natural sweetness of honey.
'Tis the season to snack guilt-free!
It's so good, I've unknowingly munched half a packet of it away just like that. LOL.
The cutest of the lot - Cinnamon Rolls!
Fluffy, sweet and packed with cinnamon flavour, it tastes even better when you heat it up!
If you're keen, there are also a couple of GIVEAWAYS kindly sponsored by Boufe Boutique Cafe for these Christmas Hampers (you can check out @boufesg's tagged photos).

I recently followed @kotobukisg on Instagram and am extremely impressed with their festive feast's aesthetics, so you could imagine how thrilled I was when I received their invitation to try it out!
The festive feast serves 3 - 4pax, is only $82 (worth $138), and contains the following:
Kotobuki’s Premium Mosaic Art Sushi
Deluxe Sashimi Premium Platter
Tempura mix platter
The Mosaic Art Sushi is the first of its kind I've seen in Singapore and it's simply tooooo pretty to be eaten!
Plus the sashimi was all really fresh and sweet, my family and I left the place immensely satisfied!
Thank you Kotobuki Izakaya at Wisma Atria once again for the invite!
Stärker Fresh Beer @ Zhongshan Park
1 Jalan Rajah
#01-02, ZhongShan Park
Stärker Fresh Beer at Zhongshan Park is probably one of the most chill places I've ever been to, and I can foresee myself hanging out there quite often!
The welcoming ambience with the warm lighting, interior deco showcasing their pride in serving quality fresh beer, comfortable seatings, beautiful alfresco area beside a large field (pet-friendly!), and efficient service makes it the ideal place for your Christmas parties!
Don't fuss yourselves with cooking this Christmas. Pamper yourselves & enjoy the day fully with the Christmas menu Stärker has to offer!
The portions of the platters at Stärker are not only generous and perfect for sharing, but tastes really amazing too!
We actually couldn't finish the food and asked to pack the remaining home and guess what? It's still really yummy the next day hahah!
