Tea-time continues to refresh and entertain. It’s comforting to know that in such a frantic, fast-paced city, everything can still stop for tea. This time, we dropped by Fairmont’s glitzy Anti:dote Lounge anticipating a splendid afternoon of petite treats and tête-à-tête.
I have been meaning to try French inspired Becasse for the longest time. Last weekend, we spent a leisurely afternoon at its first outlet at Ion, a bakery as well as a full-service restaurant.
It’s always a pleasure to find a place like Mandarin Oriental, where you are assured a warm welcome and attentive service. The luxury hotel has recently launched a staycation package, City Retreat, coupling one night stay in a well-appointed Premier Ocean Room overlooking the iconic Singapore Flyer, as well as an opulent Sunday Champagne brunch buffet for two. It’s a perfect opportunity to treat yourself to a much needed urban escape away from the hustle and bustle of hectic Singapore!
Located on the 70th floor of Swissotel’s Equinox Complex, Jaan boasts spectacular views of Singapore’s skyline. The main attraction here is talented Chef Julien Royer, recently voted “One to Watch” by the prestigious San Pellergino Asia’s 50 Best List. Born into a family of farmers in a French rural area, he has an appreciation for ingredients in their pure and organic state. His creations showcase the freshest produce in a artistic fashion.
Rather late, but better than never! Today I’ll be sharing 3 polishes from the OPI Mariah Carey Holiday Collection 2013. Formulations are superb, each product is a breeze to apply, with the right amount of opacity achieved in 2 coasts. I tend to reach out for these when I’m running short of time because it only takes 20-25 minutes for them dry completely (with OPI drip dry). Chips and tip wear can be easily corrected without any sign that the manicure has been touched up , thanks to the rough surface.
Windowsill in the Woods, more commonly known as Windowsill Pies is a suitably casual and cherry place to spend a lazy afternoon catching up with friends or with a lovely book. Upon pushing open the wooden door, you’ll be greeted by an vibrant display of eye-catching pies. They specialize in artisanal pies; all the pies are sweet but I’m not complaining!
With the lack of sleep and relentless stress on my skin, I needed to up my beauty game. While a conventional facial is great, marrying it with technology does wonders for the complexion. To revive my sallow complexion and lighten pigmentation, Beaute by Kew’s therapist May coupled Australian organic skin and body care brand Black Chicken Remedies with Dynamic Pulse Light.
