Hello everyone!

Online Shopping

I’m no stranger to online shopping which made me way more lazy to go out and shop for clothes/groceries/household items/make-up etc. but I love it! As it made finding deals and comparing prices much easier.

I was recently made aware of another online shopping portal ShopBack which is trending now. This site is offering us consumers even better deals by giving us cold hard cash returns when we shop through that website (cashback)! Offering us even more savings on top of what the original websites are offering.

ShopBack works with most of our beloved shopping websites like Zalora, Taobao, Reebonz, Sephora, Groupon, ASOS and even Food Panda! So the cashback savings are so easily attainable as these are my everyday website that I frequently shop from.

Deals

On top of  obtaining a percentage cashback while shopping on various online sites through this portal, ShopBack can help consumers find a Zalora discount code for further discounts or learn about a Sephora sale through constant updates on their webpage.

As most of us know that the annual major sale on Asian websites occurs on Single’s Day or 11.11 (双十一) made popular by Taobao, ShopBack also partakes in major sales like these. If you missed out on that, not to fret, there’s a make up sale equally as crazy happening on 12.12. So keep a lookout for the best deals at the upcoming ShopBack 12.12 sales. I know I will be noting that date down in my calender!

How Does ShopBack Work?

Initially, it took me some time to understand how this cashback system works. Most of us know about cashback received from credit card spending and it’s always done automatically to your credit card account so you don’t really bother how it works but this is the first time a website is offering such a deal.

Basically, ShopBack is sharing their income from merchant referrals with the consumers. So it’s a win-win for everyone.

Say for example, the merchant pays ShopBack 10% of the amount spent for items purchased for every consumer referred from their website, ShopBack will keep 4% as income, and return the remaining 6% to you as cash.

 

Check out this video to further elaborate how this works.

And there’s a referral promotion from now till 9 December that if you successfully refer 3 friends to sign up and shop from their website you can earn an additional $100! Do use my referral link https://www.shopback.sg/?raf=a50uRM to help me earn some extra cash! 😉

It’s simple, easy and gives us more savings. Who doesn’t like a good deal?

XOXO,

Jessica

Hello all,

As you all know I’m quite the make-up junkie and love experimenting with new make up and skincare all the time.

I was recently introduced to the Burberry’s contour & highlight pen and the simplicity of using it to sculpt your face without looking too drag like. It’s special cream to powder formula makes it real easy to draw on the face and spread it with your fingertips. Pretty much idiot-proof.

So I got the Face Contour pen in Medium No.1 & Fresh Glow pen in Nude Radiance No.1.

I must say after trying it out, it helps with the shading which is not overly dramatic and adds some oomph to the face shape. It doesn’t add much time to my make-up regime (usually 30min for daily make-up)

Here’s a video clip on how I used it.
And this is the look that was achieved (without any phot editing of course) after I used it:

For those of you who are newbies to shading and highlighting your face, I do highly recommend this as the formula is lightweight, easy to use and pretty much foolproof.

XOXO

It’s about 2 months and counting to my big day and I have started to become a lot more hardworking with my home facials and nightly masks. 

Who doesn’t want to look like the most radiant and beautiful bride on your special day?

I was recently introduced to and began to  use Philips Visacare – a dual action air lift & exfoliation system – twice a week. Visacare is a skin resurfacing tool that helps remove dead skin cells, clear clogged pores, leaving you with a firmer and more radiant looking skin. Ever since I started on this home tool,  I’ve been addicted! It especially helps my problem clogged chin and nose areas rid of white heads. 

If you’re a daily user of make-up and sunblock. It is very important to do a deep cleansing of your skin to prevent clogged pores which includes adding microdermabrasion to your weekly routine. 

Here’s a video about the product review and how it works on ridding your skin of unwanted dead skin cells and clogged pores:

Philips Visacare

And after using the micro-dermabrasion device, I checked out the head of the tool and gleefully saw loads of dead skin cells and even some white heads sucked out of my face! (A grossly gratifying feeling) 


It is important to immediately use a facial mask after using Visacare as your skin is fresh and raw, so it will thirstily absorb all mask serums in an instant. Also this will aid in the formation of new and healthy youthful skin. Whilst my mask is on, I will also add an extra step of using Philips Visaboost to help enhance the absorption of the benefits of the facial mask. This tool can also be used daily with your moisturizers. 


I simply love home facials and with the aid of numerous beauty tools available in the market nowadays, it makes it all the more easier. 

Ok, back to my wedding planning on my MacBook! 💕

XOXO

IMG_8060I spent the whole of yesterday in the hot sweltering sun at West Kowloon Promenade participating in the very first Run For Your Lives Asia event in Hong Kong with my friends from Starz People.

IMG_8064

It was exhilarating playing this Walking Dead inspired run with obstacles and zombies to overcome. You can either opt to be a zombie or a survivor. We chose the survivor side as it was much more fun to go through the entire 5km route of zombies and obstacle course (better workout too!).

IMG_8076Our run was right smack in the afternoon sun at 1pm when the sun was up and clouds were no where to be seen. Great if you wanna get a tan, but not so great for my work nature & hair. What you won’t realise is that the UV rays are pretty harmful to our hair too. It damages and dehydrates our hair unknowingly. In addition, for the past 2 weeks I have been working in the sun filming a commercial for HK Disney filled with hairspray as well. So my hair condition wasn’t in good shape after the run yesterday.

Decided to give my hair a treat with Aussie Miracle Moist shampoo and the 3 Minute Miracle deep conditioner.IMG_8040The shampoo was heavenly with a tinge of natural sweet smelling goodness which doesn’t overwhelm you with artificial scents that certain shampoo brands use. It uses Australian Macadamia Nut Oil to infuse moisture back into my hair. After shampooing my hair texture felt slightly better but not satisfactory. So I added on the 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner after washing off the shampoo and squeezing out excess water from my hair. I applied a generous amount and left it on for 5 minutes (yes, I was being greedy as my hair was really really damaged!). The Australian Balm Mint added extra moisture and life back to my hair. When I applied the 3 Minute Miracle, the texture was thick and greasy like some conditioners and I was wondering if it will really make my hair silky smooth like some other richer conditioners. So after about 5 minutes, I rinsed it off and miraculously I could run my fingers through my hair again! After just 1 use, my hair feels very different, and I’m definitely one happy camper with this product. Brushing my hair last night was much easier and I had lesser hair fall from tugging. I’m gonna use it again tonight to further improve my hair condition. 🙂

Effectiveness: 4 out of 5

Texture: 5 out of 5

Scent: 5 out of 5

For those of you who have trouble finding a good shampoo & conditioner for severely damaged hair, maybe you can give Aussie a try! I am definitely a new fan of theirs!

I’ve not been sleeping too well lately and been having the worse neck pains when I wake up in the mornings. Really hate having stiff neck, restricts movement & I can’t carry out my daily activities in peace. So when MyVisitDay.com asked if I was interested in attending a trial 60 minute facial or a 30 minute massage session at Spa Collection, I chose massage without thinking!

When I first stepped into Spa Collection at Causeway Bay Plaza 1, I was promptly greeted by friendly staff and they immediately signed me in. Thereafter, a lady showed me around the spa & I was amazed how huge the place was! It’s about 3700 sq. feet in total. It has numerous private massage rooms, 2 toilets, make-up corner, lockers & even a resting area for guests after their treatments.

IMG_2005

IMG_2007I find this make up area a great idea as we always have our hair messed up, make-up smudged after a massage. Or even after a facial, you normally want to freshen up a little before leaving the spa. *thumbs-up*

IMG_2006

IMG_2003

I was showed into my own private massage room and it looked calming and peaceful with dim lighting & soft coloured wall paper.

IMG_2010

I quickly changed out of my clothes and snuck a selfie before the treatment started. (who isn’t guilty of Selfies raise your hand!)

IMG_2012

Now… I am all ready to start my massage! Before the massage started, the therapist asked which parts of my back hurts the most so that she can concentrate more on those parts. And I told her my neck and shoulder areas hurt the most from my late nights and bad sleep. I lay down on the massage table and the therapist started applying Lanius massage essential oils imported from England. This oil is supposed to help rid your body of water retention and expel toxins deep in your body. After, she used this very interesting looking massage rod called 排酸棒. (See picture below) She explained that this rod creates vibrations while rolling against your tight muscles which gives you a deeper tissue massage as compared to using your hands. It felt really good! Personally I enjoy strong and firm massages because my muscles are always tight and knotted. So this massage rod really did it for me as I could feel my knots loosening.

After 15 minutes, they took a photo of my back which only the left half was given the treatment. Visually, you can tell that the left side already looks slightly smaller and tighter – effects from the Lanius oil & massage rod ridding of toxins through my lymph-nodes. If you’re worried that the red marks caused by the massage rod won’t go away, don’t fret! They disappeared after a few hours for me.

IMG_2020I was happy to see it working so quickly & I could really feel my muscles relaxing. Now I really wished the massage lasted longer than 30 minutes as I could lay there forever and it felt so good! I left the place feeling happy and refreshed and wanting more. (it’s pretty addictive & I love massages!)
