Bustling with excitement as I’m writing this – The Face Inc has just, on 1 Nov, launched its Primer Mist and I’m honoured to be able to review this!

BlackBox SG – Formula 10.0.6 Review

I first noticed Formula 10.0.6 on a Priceline Pharmacy shelf in Brisbane because the brand’s bold words and bright perky packaging were hard to miss. I’m really ecstatic to try this oft-heard of skincare brand that has been around for 83 years. Thank you BlackBoxSG for allowing me to review FORMULA 10.0.6! Psst… don’t forget to apply my code ‘BBXJEAN10‘ at checkout forContinue reading “BlackBox SG – Formula 10.0.6 Review”

The Ultimate Cheat-Sheet To Decluttering Your Vanity Space

(Article originally published on HIPVAN, January 26.) All beauty lovers face the same problem: they find their room gradually being taken over by skincare and makeup products. Lipsticks all over the desk, toner bottles under the bed, sunscreens in the bookshelf and a skincare stash littering the floor. Does this sound like your bedroom? Come everyContinue reading “The Ultimate Cheat-Sheet To Decluttering Your Vanity Space”

[MUA] ‘Bruised Eye’

This I call the “Bruised-eye”, inspired by late nights and unfortunate accelerated growth of dark eye-bags. I used to believe blues and greys would make a pale girl look like she’s a foot from her grave, but it’s all in matching the right lipstick shade. In my honest opinion, I haven’t gone quite bruise-eyed enough. I couldContinue reading “[MUA] ‘Bruised Eye’”

[THAILAND] o17. AYUTTHAYA – OF RECLINING BUDDHAS AND WISHING WELLS

Following a seafood-induced food coma and a brief exposure to Thai Buddhist rituals at renowned Wat Phanan Choeng, our local Thai friends took us on yet another cultural tour – the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, also known as Wat Lokkayasutharam. At this point it would be useful to note there are more than 2 Temples withContinue reading “[THAILAND] o17. AYUTTHAYA – OF RECLINING BUDDHAS AND WISHING WELLS”

10 SECRETS TO GOOD SKIN

Shh… I’m letting you guys in on what I do to keep my skin minimally flawed and young-looking. I’m not without vices – my lifestyle certainly does a great deal of harm to my skin. Constant travelling, difficult climates, dry-air in airplane cabins, late nights, sleepless days, junk food and irregular meals, social drinking and partyingContinue reading “10 SECRETS TO GOOD SKIN”

[ROME] A NIGHT AT THE VATICAN

Probably the only time you can catch the night scene outside St Peter’s Square is if you spend the night at Vatican City, or if you’re reading this as I’m about to show you a couple of my night scene captures. Outside St Peter’s Basilica on the day we arrived, there was a huge preparationContinue reading “[ROME] A NIGHT AT THE VATICAN”

[ROME] 10 SNAPSHOTS OF VATICAN CITY

Bringing to you a quick showcase of the world’s smallest independent state – all 109 acres (44 hectares) around St. Peter’s Basilica and the palace of the Vatican. In and around are beautifully preserved cultural sites, lush green gardens, and museums which feature some of the world’s most famous sculptures and paintings. Home to architecturalContinue reading “[ROME] 10 SNAPSHOTS OF VATICAN CITY”

[ROME] VATICAN CITY – A VIEW FROM THE TOP

The view from the top of Vatican City’s St Peter’s Basilica was exhilarating, breathtaking, and worth the claustrophobia-inducing flight of stairs we had to take to the top. Once in your life, or perhaps through somebody else’s eyes, you should see Vatican City from its proudest heights. Here are some pictures I snapped, enjoy! xoxo, ViktoriaContinue reading “[ROME] VATICAN CITY – A VIEW FROM THE TOP”

[ROME] ST PETER’S BASILICA

We were both blessed and unlucky to have arrived in Vatican City the day before a huge and important event for the Catholic Church. Many parts of the basilica were closed due to preparations for mass. On the upside, we got to witness the procession which arrived to prep the church up. There were massiveContinue reading “[ROME] ST PETER’S BASILICA”

[ROME] LIVING, BREATHING ART

Ancient art, very much still alive today. The pure gold in reflecting sun’s rays ignites a sense of silent power that only a calm basilica would bring. Mass in this majestic interior must have been a truly empowering and significant event. Am amazed at how this Panasonic Lumix GF6 of mine was able to captureContinue reading “[ROME] LIVING, BREATHING ART”

[ROME] THE COLOSSEUM

Rome was not built in a day. Pardon the cliche but it’s all I could think about right here and right now. The Colosseum is the icon of Roman masculinity being the site of many heroic battles fought within its colossal proportions. I’ve had the nagging suspicion that the Colosseum’s root word comes from Colossus,Continue reading “[ROME] THE COLOSSEUM”
