Spent a night over at Hotel Nuve Heritage for Sean's birthday! ^~^
Hotel NuVe Heritage is a boutique hotel in Singapore, located at 13 Purvis Street.
The hotel has a cafe at the lobby, and around the hotel you can find lots of places for yummy food within walkable distance that opens till really late at night if you're the type who loves supper! :P
We had supper at BBQ Box during our staycation!
Please don't be fooled by the cosy entrance of the hotel, it's actually surprisingly MASSIVE & SPACIOUS once you enter! :D
I picked the Explorer Suite for our stay! :)
Customised giant silver confetti balloon, black-white themed balloons & marble balloons from MistyDayDream to decorate the (already super fabulous) room!
The delivery man arrived earlier than we did to check in, so Danny from Hotel Nuve Heritage helped me to arrange for this! Thank you so much Danny! :D
Hi, this is my first video with Sean!
There are a lot of 'My Boyfriend Does My Make Up Challenge' on YouTube, so we filmed this randomly right before we went to work cause we were at this beautiful location (Hotel Nuve Heritage - Explorer Suite) with gorgeous natural lighting! :D
Sean is obviously not a morning person (worse than me) hahah what a pig xD

I love Korean cosmetics and skincare products so much because they're not only of high quality, they also have the cutest packagings ever! ^~^
A must visit event every year, the Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar is back again! :D
You can read my blogpost LAST YEAR on Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar 2016 here:
This year, it was a really last minute decision, and I was there with Peishi, Noah & Sean! ^~^
Noah was just really not into it (I mean, look at his face -.-) the whole time whereas Peishi and I were like excited tourists trying everything although we had steamboat earlier that day and were beyond stuffed!

I've been on a long hiatus from my blog, but this is one cafe that I felt like I HAVE TO write about, simply because I enjoyed my time there so much!
Finally managed to take time to visit Platform 1094, a Harry Potter/ magical inspired cafe in Singapore that will be sure to make any potterhead hyperventilate!
Tried to call some weeks back but I think they were too busy to answer my call, and when I finally called through the other morning, I quickly placed a reservation for 2PM (after lunch peak) that day!

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!
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~
