| |
Hi Huneybees,

Sometimes don't you just wish you have multiple clones of yourself to help you run around? It was a pity I missed the #GetSassooned fashion show that day, looking back at the photos, it was a colourful event and I guess it time I give my hair the chops?

It was Singapore’s first #GETSASSOONED event by Vidal SassoonHeld in partnership with Creative Director of Hairloom and Sassoon Academy-trained hairstylist, Calvin Gan, local fashion designer Mae Pang, and hosted by local musician Sara Wee, not only were the models transformed,  Singapore’s first Vidal Sassoon ambassador Joanne Peh as well as Fly Entertainment artiste Oon Shu An presented their Sassooned Looks on the runway. They were inspired by classic Vidal Sassoon cuts, but modernized by Calvin.

Saw Michelle at the event and we shyly asked Utt for a photo together. :)

At the event, we also saw the introduction of the Vidal Sassoon Elastica Premium Hair Care Series. It is designed to allow women to effortlessly recreate the salon look at home, injecting every strand of hair with elasticity to bring any hairstyle to life.

Can't wait to give this series a try...
So, here's the photos from the fashion show. Everyone's hair were chopped off with a fresh new coat of colour, especially Joanne Peh's. It's definitely a younger and more vibrant version of her!

Have An Egg-alicious Brunch At MEDZS

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Yay! It's the weekend and it's time to treat ourselves to great food with our friends and families. The Brunch trend has been catching on in the recent years and my very own favourite would have to be the Eggs Benedict. Something about cutting the eggs up and letting the yolk flow, is so invigorating!

So, I'm always on the lookout for new Brunch hunts, looking for nice places to chill out with my hubby after "partying" out our Fridays and Saturdays. Hungry? Here's MEDZS with their new weekend brunch menu...

I have introduced MEDZS to you guys before, it is home to an eclectic range of Mediterranean cuisine from Spain, Turkey, Morocco, Tunisia, Greece, Italy and France. Their brunch menu is of course a wide selection of popular dishes from these countries and all I can wish for is to have 4 stomachs!

Stacked Brunch Torte

This Italian dish is a delight to have, every layer is a different flavour of Eggs, Ham, Mushroom, Spinach and Bell Pepper. Paired with a light salad, this will definitely prepare you for the rush hour week ahead.

Tasty Tortilla

If you are looking for something more hearty to last you through the noon, you can consider the Spanish Tortilla. With the Stewed Beans with Chorizo and Brioche Toast, the flavouful dish will ehisk you awayto Spain for the weekend.

Bouncy Benedict

Here comes my favourite. Not only is there Eggs Benedict, there's even Rosti Potato to go with them. You know how they always say eat your Eggs Benedict whilst its still piping hot? Well, after having mine laying there for a while, the egg yolk is still runny! Together with the Smoked Salmon and English Muffin, this is definitely the dish I want to wake up to every morning!

Le Jolly Monsieur

Served in a big portion of Ham, Bacon, Cheese and Béchamel Sauce, this French quick snack that is a must-have in all Parisian café. Although I do like this version of the Croque Monsieur, I would suggest to have it whilst it's hot, as the sandwich feels a little soggy after awhile.

Poseidon's Wrap

Fans of seafood must have this! It's a lighter dish compared to the rest, with loads of vegetables wrapped with prawn, fish, squid, it would be as though you were swimming in the Mediterranean Sea. Do try the Tzatziki sauce as well! The Greek Salad is also very appetizing with its tangy dressing, tomatoes, olives and cheese.

Spicy Chicken Tagine

I wouldn't call it spicy though, I find this dish kinda sweet in fact. Though this tasty Moroccan Chicken dish might be a little heavy for my liking, but I'm sold by the sauce and I can't help dipping the Potato Pancake in it!

Egg-Crowned Shakshouka

This is the first time that I had tried this dish and I must admit that I felt in love with the dish the moment I put in my mouth. The lamb kefta is very chewy while the egg yolk (when mixed with the sauce) is very addictive when eating with bread.

A Berry Pancake Gala

I would consider this a dessert and share it with my partner after our bunch meal. Other than the Berries topping, you could have a choice of maple syrup, Mango, Vanilla or Strawberry sauce to go with the pancakes.

The dishes are priced affordably so that you do not have to worry about burning a hole in your pocket even if you decide to pamper yourself every weekend. The restaurants’ cosy and friendly settings also make them an ideal place for to enjoy tete-a-tete conversations. Visit Orchard Central for the underground buzz, and Millenia Walk to enjoy the spacious and alfresco setting.

Not only that, MEDZS is adding premium coffee to its weekend brunch menu to complement the hearty range of brunch. For the first month, first 200 brunch-goers at each MEDZS outlet will receive a free cup of coffee with every brunch item purchased.

The weekend brunch menu will be available starting from 22 February 2014.

For a refreshing twist, MEDZS has also created a second, equally delightful menu. The two menus will alternate on a weekly basis. Check out MEDZS’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/MEDZS.SimplyMediterranean?fref=ts) for more details.

[Tried & Tested] Clear Your Acne Prone And Oily Skin With Benzac

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Acnes are always a irritating fellow. Not only does it affect our looks, alot would also agree if I say it affects the self esteem as well. Well, if you are troubled by acne, Benzac might be the solution for you. It is a skincare range recently launched by Galderma - targeting at treating adult /youth acne problems.

Some of the best acne treatment therapies may produce clear skin in some acne sufferers but only exacerbate the problem in individuals with combination skin types. As acne sufferers have different skin conditions ranging from normal, sensitive, oily to combination, the new range of Benzac cleansers and scrub aim to complement the current Benzac AC® treatment gels by removing impurities from the skin and unblocking pores, leaving your skin nourished and soothed.

So, I got my hubby to try the range of products sent over to me, as I didn't have much of acnes to work on. Hehehe...

So, he embarked on a 5-day journey to see if Benzac works for him. Firstly, using the Benzac Daily Facial Liquid Cleanser to cleanse his face twice a day. 

Then, he used the Benzac AC®5 Gel on the affected acnes twice a day. It blends into the skin, so you don't have to worry that you will see white spots all over your face. Moreover, there is a cooling effect when applied, hubby said that it's pretty refreshing especially in the mornings!

What's so special about the Benzac AC® Gels is that they contain the active ingredient, Benzoyl Peroxide. Benzoyl Peroxide is an antimicrobial that has keratolytic action (unblock pores) and is able to quickly and effectively kill Propionibacterium acnes (P-acnes) bacteria within 48 hours. Unlike antibiotics, bacteria have not been able to become resistant to benzoyl peroxide.

In addition, the Benzac AC® Gel is specifically formulated with Acrylates Copolymer (AC) beads to absorb excess oils (sebum) that can carry bacteria, thus reducing surface sebum and it also releases glycerin, which helps to moisturize dry and irritated skin. The Benzac AC® Gel is available in several different concentrations -2.5%, 5% and 10%.

After using the products for 5 days straight, I can see an improvement in my hubby's skin. The acnes are less and his skin is definitely less oily. He doesn't even need to blot his face that much and he's loving it! He has been using the products ever since and he was glowing for Chinese New Year!

Benzac® Range of Daily Cleansers and Treatment Gels are available at the following selected pharmacies: Guardian, Unity and Watsons.

For further information on the Benzac® range, please visit www.facebook.com/BenzacSG and www.twitter.com/BenzacSG.

MTV's Beauty School Cop Outs Premieres On Wednesday 19 March

| |
Hi Huneybees,

If you are into all things beauty, you would be attracted by this new reality show by MTV - Beauty School Cop Outs Premiering on Wednesday, 19 March at 2pm (WIB), 3pm (SIN/HK/PH), 4pm (MAL), the 8 selected, colourful characters are guided by experts in a plush beauty salon in Manchester, U.K. and given the chance of a lifetime to kick start their careers by learning waxing, shaving, tattooing, and practising on real customers

If you love Geordie Shore, you will LOVE this fabulous entertaining reality TV show, shining a light on a group of young wannabe Beauticians who are on the journey of their lives. What could possibly go wrong?!

There will be 4 guys and 4 ladies in the show and here are the boys - There’s Calvin, our Beyoncé obsessed Scouse drag queen who wants to learn all the make-up skills to enable him to pass on the ’drag legacy’. Daniel aka ‘Protein Boy’ who is a gym fanatic, phobic about fat people and is often mistaken for being gay due to his strict beauty regime. Jeremy the Irish model and lothario who would never miss his weekly manicure and lists looking good as his top priority in life. Richard, who states that his body is a temple, works as a club doorman as he thinks it’s the best place to score women and believes working in a beauty salon could be another great place to pull.

Then there are the girls – Barmaid Sacha and the baby of the group, dreams of becoming a make-up artist to the stars, aided by a multitude of wigs and varying shades of tan she is forever changing her look. Self-confessed Barbie Savannah, has all of her make-up tattooed on and says this was the most painful experience of her life even more painful than breaking her arm - but obviously worth it to this beauty fiend. Not a fan of the natural look, dancer Scarlett has been fake tanning since the age of 14 and dreams of one day having her own beauty range so other girls can look as fake and over the top as her. Always needing to be the centre of attention, Tara the MILF of the academy is not afraid to speak her mind leaving her unpopular with other girls and despite admitting having very shaky hands she thinks that beauty is the career for her.
tarting from the bottom pulling hair from plugs and sweeping floors just like in the real world, witness how these 8 beauty obsessed people go their beauty casualties and triumphs along the way...
