5 celebrity styles with boots

Having been a sneaker girl all my life, I had never realised what magic boots can do for you 
until I went shopping for shoes online the other day and came across a pair of boots
that goes with, well, practically everything in my closet! 

So began my fashion discovery. An epiphany, if you will. 
How did I ever miss out on such incredibly versatile footwear?
 I mean, just look at these 5 different celebrity looks and how their boots made all the difference! 


1. Edgy 



The first thing about boots is, they're sexy. I don't know what it is about them - maybe it's the leather, 
the toughness of the material, that make them such a chic finish. 
So if you're looking to pull out all the stops with boots, 
channel your inner Erin Wasson and 
pair ripped - seriously ripped - jeans, a loose sheer black top, a structured blazer with black boots. 

Or, if you'd rather go edgy glam, make Erin's other look work for you too: 



A dangerously sheer body-con dress with lace-up ankle booties? Absolute traffic-stopper. 


2. Girly 



Kate Bosworth knocks all competition out of the ballpark with this adorable back-to-school look! 
From her snuggly pink knit sweater to her casual cool backpack, loose waves, 
and, of course, those ankle booties. Not sure about the shorts, though. 
I might go with something less baggy to balance out the top. 


3. Edgy Girly 



What comes between edgy and girly? Edgy girly, of course! And yes, it IS possible. 
Look at girl-of-the-moment, Cara Delevigne, striking the perfect balance here.
In true Cara style, she toughened up that sweet blue baby-doll frock with 
a pair of wedged biker boots and a structured jacket. The result is gold. 


4. Urban chic 



Look how effortlessly chic Miranda Kerr is, 
in her Alexander Wang tweed long sleeve dress, Hermes black leather knee-high boots 
and Givenchy black leather Antigona bag!  

That amount of leather should make this look edgy, but the tweed softens the overall effect 
and tones down the severity. The shape and cut of the dress also make the outfit modern 
with clean, sleek lines. This is the epitome of the girl-about-town look. 

5. Laidback  



With loose layers and an outfit in neutral shades of white, grey and black, 
a pair of flat knee-high boots are the perfect finish. 
Doesn't Dakota Fanning look perfectly at ease here? 

Now. Which celebrity's look shall I steal next? Ha!

5 Chic Ways to Wear A Scarf

Many women in Singapore think that scarves don't apply to them simply because they live in a tropical climate. But that doesn't mean scarves are out of the question. It's all in the way you wear them. Scarves are a quick, easy way to dress up an outfit, and there are lightweight designs that don't trap heat so they can be part of a summer outfit too.

Besides, scarves are always a good idea in months when the weather is unpredictable, sunny one minute and stormy the next. Parisian women make scarves a wardrobe staple precisely because of this, and scarves ended up being regarded as a chic accessory.
Not sure how to make scarves work for you? Get some inspiration from these celebrities:

1. With a coat


Perfect for that holiday in Europe or trip to NYC, a scarf and coat pairing is all you need to nail that city chic look. Kate Hudson's white Burberry jacket and scarf look classy and fresh enough to hit the streets. Pair with heels and a structured handbag for an office-appropriate look


2. With a leather jacket

To edge up your look, do as Jessica Alba does and throw on a leather jacket. Then wrap on a cable-knit scarf for a cool contrast of textures. The knits help to soften the biker look, and goes great with soft grey denim jeans and leather boots.

3. With neutrals


Scarves are a fresh, fun way to update your neutrals. Look how Megan Fox's Navajo print scarf punched up her grey t-shirt and dark-wash jeans, injecting a jolt of colour into what would otherwise be a rather bland outfit. Her fringed boots are a fantastic complement to the printed scarf, while also elongating her toned legs.


Likewise, Miranda Kerr's classic white tee and blue jeans ensemble is given a modern update with a vibrant, printed scarf. Work that airport look with a low-maintenance outfit with a few key accessories, including a structured handbag and, of course, that scarf.


4. On your head


That's right. Scarves aren't just meant to keep your neck warm. Victoria's Secret supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio demonstrates how you can wear a scarf for a modern hippie flower child look. This is one free-spirited, summer-ready look perfect for attending music festivals. Incidentally, the Brazilian model showed up at 2013's Coachella Festival in this outfit.

5. Double duty


How to make your scarf work for you from day to night? Take notes from German style cat Diane Kruger. Check out how the same black and white scarf saw her through the entire day. For a breezy daytime look, she knotted the scarf and teamed it with a plain grey dress and sandals. For evening, she dressed up a t-shirt and jeans ensemble with the scarf draped around her neck, along with peep-toe pumps and a studded clutch.

Review: My First Painless Cold Steam Facial Treatment Experience in Singapore!

Hellow readers! It has been a while since the last time I do beauty review!
Oh! I miss those days where I was often invited to try facial, slimming treatment or even bust enhancement treatment LOL!
I miss those days where I'd travel around Singapore just to attend review or visit a spa or beauty center.
No matter how far the location is, I will use gothere.sg to find my way there! Honestly, I learned a lot about Singapore from blogging.
Man...I wish I still have time for those events as often as before T-T
I love learning new things, gain more experiences in beauty field and of course, meeting new friends.
It has been a miserable journey to KIV all of the invites I received in my inbox, super super sad duh!

Anyway, so weeks ago, I was coincidentally in Singapore
when Michelle invited me to try a painless cold steam facial treatment at BeautyLand Salon,
which I can't wait to share about my experience with you all!
Btw, I was in Singapore for my cruise trip. Oh! I finally sailed with Mariner of the Seas - Royal Caribbean Cruises!!
I will share about it in a separate blog post. (Update: I have shared about it here



BeautyLand is strategically located near to the SuiTes@ Bukit Timah bus stop.
It was super easy to spot the beauty salon and it was easily accessible too.
Upon arrival, I was asked to change to slipper and keep my belongings in the locker.
I love how clean, hygienic and organized the place was. It feels like home to me. It was really comfortable.
Then, I was greeted with the friendly owner who was the therapist herself as well, Miss Michelle.



Here's some of her achievements;
Certified Beauty Specialist by BABTAC (British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology)
Dr Pierre's Aesthetician & Entrepreneurship Diploma and etc.
In addition, Michelle is also certified by CIDESCO.
One of the most prestigious certificate a beauty therapist/consultant can achieve.

Move on to my "Cold Steam Facial Treatment" as what the name suggest, it was a cold facial.

The first step was cleansing!
She applied a deep cleanser to remove my eye make-up and to cleanse my face.
Product she uses were mostly herbal-ish which I love it very much! The scent was very relaxing.


Then, she exfoliates my skin with very soft, spherical bead scrub.
After that, my face was then cold steamed with a herbal fluid and a light, eraser scrub applied. 
This was done to  further clear the surface impurities and debris and dead cells of my skin.
It was my first time trying cold steam, I ask her why cold instead of warm steam?
She mentioned that cold steam has a great calming and recovering effect,
especially for those with a sensitive skin and in fact, cold steam is a good moisturizing procedure too!
The cold steam calmed my skin and the herbs helped to firm up my skin collagen tissues.
She totally knew what I need! My skin was very thirsty for water!
My skin feels really clean after the multiple-cleansing process.


Move on to the extraction step, Michelle applied their famous Comedone Remover on my face and
left on for a few minutes to loosen and remove my blackheads painlessly.
This is it!! This whole treatment was called painless facial because the extraction process
doesn't involve the horrible and painful squeezing !! OMG my boyfriend is going to like this!
Hahaha! Everytime he goes for facial with me, he will complain that it hurts like hell.
The comedone remover was magic! It painlessly removed all of the dirt and blackhead on my skin.
I was curious so I asked Michelle to pass me a mirror and I was shocked to see how much yellow-ish
and black impurities that came out from my skin. After the extraction, my skin became clearer and brighter.
My face literally glows! I know I sounds exaggerating but honestly, my skin became more radiant after this step.


After the soothing process, my skin was prepped with a suitable toner for the Active Phase.
My skin was then infused with a generous amount of Active concentrate serum.


Then, a multiplex tailor-made massage cream was made for me. All I heard was her opening and closing the bottles, pour, mix, shake! =D
I knew she was doing some magic potion to make me look prettier hahaha! Now, here's my favorite step!
After she applied the cream on my skin she gave me approx.20 mins massage 
using some acupressure technique with her magic hand.One word to describe this process "Heavenly".
I almost fell asleep!! It was extremely relaxing and comfortable.
Lastly, a suitable mask was applied and left on for 20 mins then followed with toner and a fantastic day cream.

That sums up my 90 min amazing painless cold steam facial treatment experience.
After the treatment, I can totally see that my skin became much cleaner and brighter.
I've always been feeling insecure about going out without makeup but after the treatment, I felt confident enough to head out and face the world.



So, after from the salon, I went to cruise center to gather with my friend before the cruise trip and
one of my friend asked "I thought you went for facial? Why is you face not swollen red?"
I told her because my facial therapist was awesome! Haha! Before this, I always schedule my facial treatment to be at night.
So you know, after the treatment I could just go home directly without scaring people
with the horrible redness on my skin that I get from the facial session.
But now, I can totally go for a facial in the morning or even afternoon! Say no more to red swollen face.
