I came across Althea's site around early March this year.. but haven't really wanted to try shopping with them yet as I didn't really heard much about them from people around me.

When I decided to have a trip to seoul, while researching on itinerary, I came across their site again. This time, I saw a call out for bloggers to take part in a shopping experience with Althea. I applied and was really honoured to be given a chance to shop with them. I have 50 credits to spend (equivalent to S$50) and due to may hectic work schedule I didn't get to shop on their site till I was in Korea!

As ironic as it might seems to be, I shopped on Althea while I was in Seoul, using my Galaxy Note 4. Well... it happens that I tried to find some interesting brands while in Myeong Dong and Hongik University area but didn't managed to find any less-heard of brands nor the trendy or crazed phenomenally-hyped items there... I might have been too relaxed n engrossed with food hunt with my family. .. Anyways, I was really glad that I found these items on Althea site, which I doubt that I'll be able to scout for them during my trip in Seoul.

Yay~

Finally, I'm able to get my hands onto this post! Although I have got quite a good amount of makeup, but if I'm being restricted to only get 3 items and to use it on a daily basis yet able to bring out something different for every look, here's what i'll choose. I will break it into 3 groups of products that I will most probably get depending on my needs (trying to put myself into shoes of my readers who might have different needs from me)

{Combo 1}
This first combination of 3 different products is for those who wish to have people's attention on their eyes, have something beneficial for their skin, has flawless skin or don't care about flaws being seen (that's me!) and has naturally pigmented lips.
a. BB cream
b. Mascara
c. Eye Shadow Quad / Mini Palette

I have been with Carousell, Qoo10 and Shopee (plus my BlogShop) for some time but I do find that it's hard to organise Spree via these platforms due to several reasons:

- They are shopping platforms, items put up on sale based on stock count
- They do not offer transactional safety / no payment handling
- Less flexibility for buyers to customise their request.

So i chanced upon AirFrov in an email newsletter as member of Vanitee.

Received from my dearest ex-boss and friend Peggy Tan: what each animal in the Chinese Zodiac symbolises and represents. Why and how they are arranged in the Zodiac. Recall the legends of the 12 Zodiac (12生肖的传说/故事), it's show how reflecting what ancesters wished upon their decendents: the desired virtues to possess. I think that this should be shared although this ain't beauty related. 虽然以下的内容源自Whatsapp友群互传的内容(属实性无从追究), 也和美容沾不上边, 我觉得这是一篇的内容很具启发性。也应该大肆转发。我指的是十二生肖的含义及祖先们对于自子孙孙们的期许。

*****************************
老外嘲笑十二生肖,國人反問讓人深思!

有一次,一群中國人參加接待了一個由歐洲貴族組成的參訪團的活動。
他們中的大多數跟王族有親戚關係,非常有學問和修養,待人彬彬有禮,但他們的修養背後隱藏著一種傲慢。最後一天聚餐,可能酒喝多了,這些貴族的言談舉止變得比較率性。
席間,一位德國貴族站了起來說:你們中國人,怎麼屬什麼豬啊,狗啊,老鼠啊!不像我們,都是金牛座,獅子座,仙女座……真不知你們祖先怎麼想的!

Purchased from: Nice Cosmetics (Seletar Mall branch)
Price: SGD 14.90
Country of Origin: Korea

I was initially drawn in by the cute and colourful packaging. Bullet style shape and curvy body always attracts my attention, topping it off with vibrant colours are just too hard to miss. 

However,  having so many options out there,  just the outer appearance of products aren't enough draw to get me buy it. The real pull factors are the scent and actual color of lipstick in tube and upon application.

Hey everyone~~

I bet you are not totally unfamiliar with the findings of "gold" in Daiso!

Most recently last year (2013), I have gotten a video recorded featuring the hair accessories that I love from Daiso.

Many times if you were to even scout around the neighbourhood accessories stores, the cheapest scrunchies or hair ties are typically slightly more expensive than Daiso's.
I am usually on the look out for scrunchies as they tie up your hair in the most beautiful way that makes it pretty and cute, yet holding power is good!

Hey people~

Look what I've found! !!

2013-10-18-00-30-19_deco  

If anyone uses the Shills slimming creams and lotions is thing to buy the roller / massager that might come in a set of the slimming products,  Daiso has a dupe for it!!

I got the red roller in a set of Shills slimming products some years back. I saw this roller being sold online at around NT199 (Taiwan dollars) which is about SGD6 or 7.

At daiso it's only SGD2.00!!!

Quality and built is equivalent to the original and I personally prefer green colour.

Try it!! It does help to keep your hands feeling less tired as u use it to rub n massage slimming products onto your body.

Cheerios
