. Singapore Blog Awards 2014 .

Having taken a hiatus from blogging for the bulk of last year, I must admit that I certainly didn’t expect to be in the running for the Singapore Blog Awards 2014 Best Lifestyle Blog again!

Blogging has always been very personal for me as I see it as a platform to express and share my feelings and thoughts. For many years, I have kept the essence of this blog as true to my goal as possible, which is to write and document about my life experiences and the things that I truly love and care. This little blog will never be one of the popular blogs/sites with stylish designs, stunning photography or content about the most happening events or trendiest products. But, it is about what that defines me. I know that my tiny virtual corner pales in comparison to the many more outstanding blogs in the blogsphere, hence I am extremely humbled to be shortlisted, once again, as a finalist by the panel of judges and editors. Thank you.

Frankly, I am not huge on requesting for votes but if you do enjoy reading my blog, please CLICK HERE (Best Lifestyle Blog category) to vote for me. You can vote once a day, every day. Thank you for your support! 🙂

1. White Embroidered Heart T-Shirt by Mango

3. Yellow Coin Woven Bracelet by River Island

zalora summerAfter a past couple of challenging months living in a “prison cage”, I wanted to celebrate the removal of my halo vest by making the first piece of clothes that I’ll be wearing in the longest time something different. Not my usual choice of summer flocks, shift dresses and graphic printed tops but something that resonates with me and my outlook in life. That’s when I fell instantly in love with the new MANGO embroidered  top offered on ZALORA. The subtle details on the t-shirt that reminds us to love life and live inspired, I love it. “You are what you wear” and I truly feel great to be donning something that inspires me to embrace my life despite its hardships. 🙂

Live. Love. Grow.

. the walking nail service .

Living with a halo vest pretty much means that I have been home-bound for the past 2 months, with the occasional trips to various clinics. In all honesty, when you have a bulky metal contraption screwed into your head, it’s hard to feel attractive or pretty in the slightest way. So, I thought, why not pamper myself with a nice session of manicure and pedicure to spruce my life a little? At the very least, I’ll have pretty nails to look at (totally bimbotic)! :p

That is when ‘The Walking Nail Service‘ comes into the picture. Jeannie, the owner behind The Walking Nail Service, provides a wide range of house-call nail services, from classic gelish to organic spa treatments. For those who are looking for silky-soft hands and feet, you can also opt for the 100% natural and intensive Thermasoft Soyaffin treatment mask made from pure shea butter, beeswax and soy extracts. A luxurious treat, all in the comfort of your own home. And may I add, at very reasonable prices. 🙂

My past 2 experiences as a paying customer with Jeannie have been very enjoyable. She makes up for the lack of amenities and ambiance with her professionalism and personalised service. All tools are sanitized and cleaned before and after usage to ensure proper hygiene. What I like most is that Jeannie makes me feel comfortable and there is no hard-sell of packages or products, which is almost inevitable in commercial salons.

GSS nailsThe Walking Nail Service is having a massive Great Singapore Sales from now till 27 July 2014. Don’t miss out on this irresistible deal to enjoy up to 40% discount for all nail services!
