Ever since winning the award of Best Smile for the New Paper New Face modelling competition, I have always been really particular about how white my teeth are and how I need to keep them plaque-free so no cavities will come bother me. (Also, hate visiting the dentist! So I invest more in home-care) So when a friend of mine introduced to me this Philips Sonicare toothbrush back in 2007  I got hooked! It was back in 2007 when I joined Miss Singapore Universe competition so natually I was a lot more conscious about my smile, my looks, my hair, my body etc as I was going to appear on live TV to compete. So buying this toothbrush was a no brainer. I did feel the immediate results of using Sonicare – my teeth felt smooth and plaque-free without any bits of food stuck in-between the gaps of my teeth! I became a FAN instantly! You know how when you use a manual toothbrush and you still feel like you have missed a spot after brushing? You never get it with Sonicare! Well… as the saying goes, “once you go Sonicare, you won’t turn back!”

Since then, I’ve been using Sonicare (and Sonicare lasts you a good 3-5 years depending on how well you maintain the toothbrush). I was using their Healthy White model and recently, I decided to give their top of the line model a try – Diamond Clean.

This model has 5 different modes – Clean, White, Polish, Gum Care & Sensitive – compared to the more basic model that I was using which only had Clean, Sensitive & Clean and White. I’ve been using the White mode for the past 2 weeks and so far loving it more and more. Found the sonic oscillations more vigorous yet still gentle on the gums and has a different rhythm compared to the regular Clean mode. And I actually feel my teeth looking a bit whiter (could be psychological but who cares! I AM more confident with my smile now!)

IMG_9370Sonicare is keeping it current for those tech-savvy peeps(which is practically everyone) by creating a USB charger built into the travel case for people like us who are always on the go! And you must also be wondering why the toothbrush packaging also came with a whiskey-like glass. That’s actually the charger and water glass for your daily use! How smart and sleek is that? With their toothbrush case updated in the design (the previous one from Healthy White was just a plain plastic white case), it’s nicer to carry it in you handbag or even slim enough to fit it into your clutch ladies! We can now brush your teeth at work, after lunch or in my case, before a photoshoot to ensure that perfect smile every time.

As you all know that I am now living in Hong Kong, the apartments here are wayyyyyy smaller than those back home in Singapore. So compact is key! And it’s nice to see Diamond Clean fitting right in on my make-up table before I whisk it off for shoots in my bag without taking up too much space.

So yeah… I am an extremely satisfied & loyal customer to Philips Sonicare and now with the Diamond Clean, I am definitely looking forward to even whiter and sparkly smiles for my photoshoots! Well good things don’t come cheap right as it has a heftier price-tag because it is the top of the line for Sonicare. (Guys, they have a more masculine Black edition) To me, it is absolutely money well spent!

Retailing at HKD$1798 or SGD$319. Find it at most departmental stores like Robinsons, Sogo & Fortress etc.

Happy Easter & Happy smiles everyone!

Needed some really pretty nails to match my Great Gatsby outfit & accessories to attend a theme party over the weekend. And thanks to MyVisitDay.com they arranged a soft-gel nail treat for me at Nail & Waxing@LKF to get them “dressed-up” for the party!

Met Fran who is the boss-lady who also did my nails for the occasion. Fran is originally from HK but she was raised in Canada (hence fluent in Cantonese & English), learning the trade of nails & waxing when she was there. She has been in the business for a long time with her first nail/waxing salon in Canada. She had to give up her business back in Canada to come back to HK because of family (which is the most important thing in the world IMO) and thus she opened up Nail & Waxing@LKF 4 years back. I told Fran about my theme party & what I was gonna wear, so she let her creative juices flow & thought up of a nice set of nails to go with my outfit for the night… I was in for a NICE surprise!

After about 2.5 hours of meticulous manicure with a revitalisation hand scrub, I was presented with the most beautiful set of soft-gel nails!!! Sparkly but yet edgy & not too girly because I’m not a girly-girl. Perfect for me!

They look even nicer with the accessories I donned on for the event! The nails completed the whole look perfectly! Thank you Fran!

Here’s some pix I took to create the whole Great Gatsby look… It’s all about accessories & bling! (with a modern touch of sparkly nails to add!)
