Easy-Breezy Curls | CHA HONG ARDOR x L'OREALPROFSG

With Singapore Fashion Week over and school officially OUT... I think it's quite safe to say:


While it's summery all-year-round here in SG, you only ever get the real summer vibes this season because school's the last thing on your mind! Here're some snaps from #SGFW #LOREALPROFSG hair show with Cha Hong :

I really love working with the team at L'oreal Professionnel. They're amazing at what they do and can handle the most extreme makeovers haha!

So to date, L'oreal Prof SG has transformed my hair from brown, to blonde, to brown-with-blonde-streaks, red-head, Korean-waves and I'm lovin' it <3 they never fail to surprise me, and always outdo themselves each time!

Tomorrow evening we leave for Seoul! 기대해~

oreal for som loreal


One week ago, this happened! (also, my photoshop needs lots of practise >..<)

 L'Oreal Professionnel invited their international ambassador, Betram K for a hair show here, presenting some new trend colours, and cuts :) I was so lucky to be part of the colour presentation segment! And this happened:
bleeeeeech!!!
To show the new colours better, i'd some bleach work done, and dang was it new. :O haha i loved it already. anyway, more exciting stuff later.

 So after 5-hours, we finally got the colour done :) it's definitely the most happily ridiculous thing i've done in the name of beauty. i'd my hair split into 20 even segments, so from the top, my hair looked like a colour-wheel. The L'Oreal team used 3 shades from their IT-trend look for Spring/Summer 2015. This was Blush Beige from their 'Timeless Charm' look, newly launched in March. I was really thrilled to be one of the first few in Singapore to have this shade! :D ANDDDD in this cool marble-like effect, which Bertram said was hot in France. talk about fancy?! this is the lightest my hair's been in a really long time, and i love it~

No hair wash the day after hair-prep, before the show~ i'm not complaining ;)

Everyone’s hair tells a story. It is my job to craft and shape this story into something wonderful, something triumphant.
-Betram K.


Guess which one's me!
hint: my hair's BIG

Shoes and Wardrobe from Raoul
 Really cool clothes and shoes from Raoul! Who'd think suede and fur would look this good on a bootie-stiletto?! and in my favourite shade cotton candy pink~ #absolut #luv.

luv, shu.
 Make-up from everybody's favourite Shu Uemura. You can always trust the Shu MUAs to brighten any sleepy face despite the ungodly 6am call-time.
Big smiles post-show~
let the burgers roll in. (teehee. twas the day we all had two breakfast mcmuffins in one morning ;)

Shuuuu (luv u)


With Chanel's International Makeup-Artist Cecilia! <3 She's the sweetest!
It's past midnight and it's really silly to still be awake now with a 10am call-time tomorrow, but I just washed my face, and I'm so excited to tell you more about it!

I seldom ever wear make-up this thick cos i just don't like the idea of washing off. But today, I decided to try out the new Shu Uemura Blanc:Chroma Brightening & Polishing Gentle Cleansing Oil.

The main reason why my make-up regime is kept to just eyebrows, blusher, some mascara and lip gloss, is because I really hate removing my make up :( i mean all the effort of putting it on.... then removing it at the end of the day :/ it's so much effort, especially when you'll need the cotton wool, and the separate bottles of make up removers (i've been a fan of Lancôme's gentle remover until just before my bath today!).

So... SHU!
THIS.
Reviews online called this the "Game-changer" - and very appropriately so!
I immediately loved how my thick make-up from work today washed off just like that with the cleanser.

Brownie points for smelling amazing AND not stinging my eyes. only thing, because it's a cleansing oil, it clouded up my vision for a while.. which did get me a little worried :<  (haalp, i'm seeing through clouds)

BUT the Blanc:Chroma does exactly as its name says. And the result was an effortlessly make-up free face. also felt moisturized and deep-cleansed - like no oily feel! CLEANNNN heehee. And no need for extra facial wash after this magic sshamagazam. #luv.

More on today! Welcome to 55 floors into the sky with Coco Chanel!



it's real candy (btw.)


What a view!

Marching into March

Big sunny hello from Chloe and I! <3 This was last Saturday when I brought lil Chloe for her haircut. That's near Sentosa, so yknow, everyone gets into beach-mode, and I was so glad I had my new Ray-Ban Rounds! They're from the newest collection called #NeverSquare, and they're a modern take on the vintage look from the 70's! I've been on the lookout for adorable round sunnies like these for the L-O-N-G-E-S-T time. Imagine my glee when I finally got these! <3

February was a month of many exciting things I never expected! Surprise surprise :D

Never in a million years would I have imagined seeing a huger-than-life version of myself >.<
Kim and Kim at ION Orchard Underpass!
..or on SBS buses :O
I honestly haven't seen this myself yet. They're all pictures my friends have captured all over Singapore! This bus, i think, was either in Queenstown, or the east (that's... too.. far.. away...).

Closer to home, though... are the local newspaperssss!
 
...and even closer, has definitely got to be the school bus >..<
So today I decided to try something different during my long break in school. I usually get my subway and watch some TV (complete with my cookies^^) before my last tutorial of the day.

I really wanted a hairwash though.. so i checked out the school hair salon and was so pleasantly surprised! it's going to be my new hangout in school.

PLUS THE SUPERMARKET IN SCHOOL IS AMAZING!! #firsttripouthere

Time to time, my hair does get dry from all the harsh elements (read: wash&wear/flat irons/curling thongs/back-combs/teases/hairspray&morehairspray/etc.). I usually get a steam, and it straightens all my problems out (not the curls though. yea, they're here to stay. they just get softened^^).
 This time I reached the salon just before closing hour, and we only had enough time for either a colour, or a steam. I really wanted a fresh colour, so we went ahead with that :) and now, after wearing the colour out a little, I think my curls have decided to behave! So... Cheers to good hair days!

And it looks much shorter here too:
L.O.B
Looks like a long-bob (LOB). lol.

So today we had a PPC-meet, and also to celebrate Fai's 21st! Happy 21st mamabear <3

Naturally, we had lots to catch up on. The pictures don't tell everything, but they sure summarise most of how our time in school was spent ;)
