Pampering and Chika Sesh at Nailaholics Abreeza

Nailaholics Abreeza

When you’re working 8 hours a day from Monday to Friday and have to attend another 8-hour seminar on both Saturday and Sunday, saying that a couple of hours of foot pampering is a welcome idea is an understatement.

One of my close friends, JM, is getting married in a couple of weeks (woah!) and my friends, Hazel and George, and I planned a little pampering sesh for her. They’re organising their wedding while she’s working and studying so some footspa would surely relax her spirits. And it did!

It’s great that we had our foot spa (and mani-pedi) at Nailaholics Abreeza because we experienced not only a relaxing (and pretty!) atmosphere but also excellent service. Here are some pictures:

As I’m a novice when it comes to the makeup game, I have no idea what colours would work for my face and skin tone. No way am I going to buy expensive makeup without experimenting first — that would be too risky for a clueless girl like me!

So I’m starting with cheap — as in cheap —  drugstore makeup, brands like e.l.f. and Maybelline. I already have a handful of lipsticks, but I wanted to experiment with matte lippies. Here’s my most recent drugstore makeup haul: Continue Reading
