How I use SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age to restore my skin's youthfulness!

Time machines doesn't exists but if there is one way to "turn back time",
it has to be through your skin! 
I've been a fan of SK-II since I was 20 so of course I said YES when their marketing team asked if I would be interested to try their SKII R.N.A Power Airy Milky Lotion and give a personal review about it. This product is part of the SK-II R.N.A. Powder Radical New Age range which features a suite of anti-aging products. I'm actually also eyeing the R.N.A Power Eye Cream that promises to reduce dark eye circles because I've seen so many positive reviews about it. 

The fight against age should start early for young lasting skin and besides finding the right products that suit your skin, your lifestyle is equally important. I always find that coupled with ample sleep, my skin always loaok brighter the next day. 

I also believe that hydration is key when it comes to anti-aging so besides making sure I'm drinking enough water daily,  I'm obsessed with lotions/moisturizers. 
This one from SK-II has recently made its way to the top of my favourites!

The R.N.A Power Airy Milky Lotion actually complements the award winning R.N.A Power Cream and has a light, airy texture (Like its name suggests) that provides 
the same firming and hydrating benefits of the Power Cream. 
It also contains SK-II's trademark, PITERA that I'm pretty sure most of us are familiar with.  

I personally like gel creams better because they are less greasy so I found the Power Airy Milky Lotion perfect and makes a great base for my makeup.

Trying to show you how milky and lightweight the product is!

My skin feels tighter the moment I pat it on my face and it is extremely moisturizing, even until the next morning - This is really important because I sleep in an air conditioned room. Now, I won't go to bed until I slather some of that product on my face and neck! 

I have also noticed that after using the R.N.A Power Airy Milky Lotion for a week, the pores around my nose become smaller and my skin clearly feels brighter and plumper. This miracle in a jar from SK-II is definitely worth the money and is going to be a permanent part of my skincare regime.

I love what its doing to my skin! 

Where to buy

If you’re eager to try, you can get the SK-II R.N.A. Power Airy Milky Lotion at

No need to wait for a trip to the Duty Free to start using this miracle in a jar!

Invisalign Journey - Complete!

Taken on my last visit at iDental to collect my retainers... 

My Invisalign journey started about 1+ year ago in July 2016 with the main purpose of achieving the best smile on my big day and Dr.Cheng from iDental did just that for me. 

Dr.Cheng (Also the founder of iDental) is extremely experienced in Invisalign and has personally treated more than 1000+ patients. I remember on my first consultation with Dr.Cheng, he listed out the areas where my teeth can be improved and I was so impressed because he spoke my mind! 

If you've seen my older posts, you'll probably know that I had braces on before and although it did straighten my teeth, I had an overbite problem and my teeth looked a little too big. 

A clearer look in 3D

Dr.Cheng suggested that I get my teeth shaved then get the gaps closed using the Invisalign aligners. 

Day 3 after getting my teeth shaved, without aligners

 You can't see the gaps at all with aligners on. 

8 months later...
Mighty pleased with my new set of teeth. 
Teeth now fits into my face shape better, overbite problem solved. 

Overall, my experience with iDental was a smooth and fuss free one and I don't remember any discomfort at all during my treatment other than when we had to take moulds for the aligners/retainers. 

Invisalign at iDental starts at $4,500 and if this is something you wish to consider, you can call 63232813 for a consultation ($220) at iDental.

La Belle Couture

We are only 2 months away to 2018, just where did all the time go?? Some time in August, we met up with the best team from La Belle Couture for a shoot and it made me feel like a bride all over agaim. 

J and I have done many shoots together but this is the first time we're doing it in a studio and it was a whole new experience, in the comfort of air-con haha. 

These are some of my favourites from the shoot!

Possibly the last time you'll see me in a wedding gown 

The lace and beading on this dress is so intricate and what I love most was the mermaid bodice that flattered my body shape. 

La Belle Couture is the same bridal company I went to for my wedding day gowns and if this dress was launched earlier, I would have picked it for the wedding!! Because I've been so busy with Hollyhoque's expansion plans, I only had time to properly start looking for my gowns 3 months before the wedding but luckily I found La Belle. 

Lucas, the chief designer of La Belle Couture helped to pick out my gowns and I'm so impressed by his observance and sharp eye for details. I'm an extremely fickle person so to speed up the process I told Lucas to pick a few dresses for me based on his expertise. He looked at my body shape and proposed that I try the mermaid cut. He also suggested that for my march in, I can go for a ball gown because W's ball room has a nice high ceiling and rather spacious so it'll look nice in the pictures/videos. I heeded ALL his advices and out of the 5 gowns he picked out for me to try, I confirmed 2 on the spot lol. The process was so efficient and fuss free even J was impressed! Before we left, Lucas took my measurements for gown alterations and the next time we met was 2 days before the wedding. I tried the gowns for the last time and although one of the gowns was still too big at the waist, Lucas got it fixed in under 20 minutes. 

This is the mermaid gown I went for in the end! 

Lucas actually also gave me another mermaid gown to try the first I went for fitting but he felt that the straps were not flattering because of my narrow shoulders so he suggested this strapless one! See what I mean when I say he has an eye for details. 

Simplicity at its best with beading details to add some glam. 

The 2nd look, for march in and first dance. 
La belle Couture gave me a cancan to wear under the skirting so it'll be easier for me to walk. 

Can you tell that this is actually a 2-piece and the skirt is interchangeable? 
The crochet lace on this piece is my favourite!

Thank you La Belle Couture for being a part of my wedding and for making my gown selection process such a sweet and pleasant one <3
