What’s New: Hermès Leather Forever Exhibition

If you’re looking for somewhere new to visit over the weekends, the Hermès Leather Forever Exhibition should be something in your list!

There are actually 2 parts to the exhibition, the main exhibition is held at the Art Science Museum @ Marina Bay Sands, while a smaller exhibition is held just outside the Arts & Cultural Museum (ACM). The main exhibition at the Art Science Museum houses over 200 of Hermès creations, including 5 unique Kellydoll bags created in honour of Singapore. The smaller exhibition is a little room of private collection of items that have been passed down from generations to generations.

Since we were in the area, we went to take a look at the exhibition at ACM. According to the guide inside, she mentioned that in conjunction with Singapore’s 50th birthday and the France-Singapore relations, for the first time ever, these items are traveling out of the country!!

As I viewed the collection, it’s no wonder that Hermès logo is the duc-carriage-with-horse. You’ll see why in the pictures below.

The exhibition was like this, in this rectangular room with many many items. It was rather crowded when we went (Saturday night) and there was a queue outside too because they couldn’t allow too many people in at one time. But it’s worth the queue!

All the horse accessories.

This is my favourite from the collection.. This pin-hole box which you can look through.

This is what you see inside. The artwork is so exquisite!

The exhibition will be held for 50 days from 25th October till 13th December 2015! I haven’t been to the main exhibition yet (but I will!) but I recommend visiting this smaller exhibition as well for a full experience. Hermès is one of my favourite brands as it’s really classic and good quality and seeing these items made me understand how they got their brand inspirations from!

Cadbury’s The Most Marvellous Bloggers’ Party!

Before my exams, I attended Cadbury’s Bloggers’ Party! Was really excited for the event as I LOVE CHOCOLATES and my impression of Cadbury is everything nice and fun.

We were picked up from the meeting point in the Cadbury’s Joyrider bus! I’m not sure if you’ve seen the bus before but I’ve seen it around NTU before giving free rides around the campus to students. And upon seated in the bus, we were handed chocolates!!

And I became a pirate on the bus cos there were props for us to play with!

Let the party begin!!

We had access to free flow of chocolates which you can get to bring home as well.

Marvellous Creations range comes in 3 yummy flavours: Jelly Crunchie Bits, Jelly Popping Candy Beanies and Peanut Toffee Cookie. You’ve got to try the Jelly Popping Candy! It literally pops in your mouth which reminded me of some sweet I used to eat when I was younger.

There was a blind tasting booth as well where you get blindfolded and have to guess what chocolates you were eating.

And if you guess correctly, you get a Cadbury thumb drive!

Hehe so cute!!

Brad, Beatrice and Maureen were the 3 ambassadors of the Marvellous Creations.

With Char who was my company for the day!!

And apart from the chocolates, the highlight of the party has got to be the photo booth!!

Love it when we get to keep photos as keepsakes from events.

Us with our photos and chocolates to bring home! (: Apparently I was having a good hair day, love my hair here!

And here’s a look at the Joyrider!! Isn’t it cute!

LOL at the person behind us. Was totally unaware that he was there when we were taking the photo.

On our way back on the Joyrider!

Ending with an outfit shot! Was telling Char of this mirror which I love taking outfits at cos it makes you look taller hahaha.

Happy 2013!!

So am I the only one who’s feeling kind of neutral about the new year?? It’s just another normal dayyy and I’m never a person who’s fond of countdown parties and blahh cos of the crowd and I hate crowds!

But anyway, I think that it’s good time to reflect on the past year, learn from mistakes and be thankful for the good things that was presented to you. So in 2013, I’ll be graduating and starting a new phase of life.. (Honestly not looking forward to working for the rest of my life with no holidays?!) I’m still uncertain of what route I should take but whatever that comes, I’ll try my best to embrace it!

And on new year’s day, I’d like to thank all of you for sticking around and supporting my blog! I know I haven’t been blogging much lately and that’s cos my life has been pretty mundane and I’m getting tired of taking photos whenever I go out..

(Picture from *Scape’s FB Page)

Ending off with a photo Fawn and I were cornered to take at *Scape for their countdown party a few weeks ago! And omg they even featured our video footage out of so many others for their promotional video which was up on the big screen at *Scape. But ahaha I didn’t talk till the end (which was cut away) so I guess it wasn’t that bad. We’re featured at approx 34s of the video and I was making some funny facial expression lolol so take a look if you’re interested! I know the countdown is over already but whatever ok haha.

& here’s a declaration that 2013 will be an awesome year!! Happy 2013 everyone! (:

ETUDE HOUSE: Little Sweet Doll.

I’m back with my monthly ETUDE review post and this month’s post is all about looking dolly!! They say that your eyes are the windows to your soul and so the eye makeup is always the most important part of your makeup routine! It’s also the area whereby it’s the most versatile. Like you can do alot of different styles with the way you draw your eyes, or the colours you use!

Here’s the Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara, the latest star product that was just launched in Korea! (Went to check out Singapore’s stores but it’s not out yet!)

This is a really really interesting product that I’m all in awe of! It gives you 3 different looks in one bottle!

And all you have to do is to twist!

I was playing with the product and wondering how it works and I’m really surprised to see that the amount of mascara that deposits itself on the mascara wand is different for all 3 steps! Step 1 has the least product coated and Step 3 has the most! And the amount changes just with a single twist, it’s like magic right infront of your eyes!! So fun playing with this product.

Another product from the Dolly range! The Dolly 3 Step Eyes! This is another product that I really love from this month’s items for its cute packaging and lovely and very usable colours!

See! Super cute hearts motif on the eyeshadows!! I love how this eyeshadow gives a matte finish and glides on really smoothly on the lids!! Not super pigmented though and takes awhile to build up. But definitely something I’ll use often for the natural colours and matte finish.

And what’s eye makeup without eyeliners. Here’s the Drawing Show Creamy Liner that comes in a cute tub and brush.

The texture is really creamy and glides smoothly when applied. It’s waterproof as well! Colour’s really soft and not very intense so it’ll look more natural! But I guess it’s build-able with more swipes! (:

The Drawing Show Dot Liner.

Another interesting product that we don’t really see in the market. You know how sometimes our lashes might seem sparse? These are actually used to fill the dots between your lashes to give the appearance of fuller lashes!

Dot it on!!

Dear My Essence in Lips Talk.

Another of my favourite!!! I’ve lots of faves in this month’s box!

Super nice colour that is really sweet and subtle on the lips! This product is enriched with Meadowfoam Seed Oil and leaves the lips smooth, moisturized and soft while adding a beautiful tint to it! Remember, if you want to play up on your eye makeup, always use a subtle lip colour to pair with it! (:

And of course, at the end of the day, you want to make sure that your makeup is completely removed so that your skin can breathe and rest! Here’s ETUDE’s Lip and Eyes makeup remover! It’s in oil based which ensures deep cleansing!

Putting the remover to a test!!

After gently wiping with a cotton pad.

Everything removed just with a few gentle swipes! (Left abit of glitter though!)

Here’s me with the Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara in Step 1. I really like this mascara and I think it’s going to be my favourite mascara I’ll use on a daily basis for the time being!! I like how it helps to lengthen my lashes and gives a very very natural look! For those who like more volume, just use Step 2 or 3! And the best part is… IT’S SUPER EASY TO REMOVE! To be honest, I really hate applying mascaras cos they’re such a chore to remove. But this mascara is such a breeze when it comes to removing that I think I’ll finally start incorporating mascaras into my daily makeup routine! THANK YOU ETUDE!!

I love everything in this month’s PINK BOX and I hope you’ve enjoyed the review as much as I’ve enjoyed preparing for this post! (:
