Vaseline - I'm sure most of you are no stranger to this brand!
Today I will be touching on the topic of the importance of skin hydration, as 
well as how Vaseline may be the answer to soft and supple skin :)
To begin, let me first talking my skin. Before I started using body moisturisers, I never thought they were useful or would make a difference for my skin... not until I realized how dry my elbows were as well as the skin on my legs (all thanks to sleeping in an air-conditioned room)
And that was my first calling to start my body-moisturizing regime, however I couldn't stick to a cream for long, as I hated how my skin feels sticky and oily after. 
Hence I had a love/hate relationship with body creams and it wasn't until I was introduced to Vaseline
which totally changed my impression on body creams!

Vaseline is the expert in healing dry skin through its superior moisturizing technology and specialised expertise in skin conditions. You can say that this brand is an expert in body creams and not only that; it helps hydrate your skin to the fullest.
Without further ado, let me introduce to you the Vaseline Total Moisture 
To learn more on this incredible range of products and how they worked on our skin,
I was invited to the Vaseline Skin Health Workshop held by Vaseline SG featuring
 Dermatologist Speaker Dr K.V. Ratnam, of Ratnam's Allergy & Skin Centre and Vaseline Research & Development, Manager John Goh.

It was a truly enriching experience being able to learn more about how our skin works and taking home a handful of useful tips to take better care of our skin!

Here are some tips to keep your skin moisturized and supple: 
1. Place a bowl of water in your room if you're sleeping with the air-con on so that your skin wouldn't dry out as much as the air wouldn't be as dry!
2. Moisturize your skin within the first 3 minutes you step out of your shower/bath, as that’s the prime time when your pores are still opened and its absorbency would be strongest then!
3. Try to limit the number of times you wash your hands/body in a day, because constant washing actually strips your skin of it's natural oil hence drying it out.

The Vaseline Total Moisture range contains the Stratys-3 technology which means the product is not only absorbed at the surface of your skin epidermis, it is also absorbed into the core and well as into the deeper layers of your skin epidermis. This allows maximum hydration and your skin will 
reap the benefits of the cream to the fullest!

And of course, we got to try and test out the Vaseline Total Moisture range that features the 3 different ingredients for targeted skin issues!
Vaseline Pure Oat Extract, Vaseline Pure Cocoa Butter and my personal favourite 
the Vaseline Aloe Fresh.
I love how these body lotion are so fragrant (especially the aloe fresh) and they are absorbed into the skin really quickly after application. I am truly sold!!!

It was an innovative and engaging workshop that I truly did enjoy and am thankful to be invited to :)

Before I was presented with the Vaseline Total Moisture Range, I have already been an avid user of the Vaseline body lotion so you can imagine my joy when I got to go home with more bottles!
I would highly recommend you all to give Vaseline a try and start slapping on your body creams today because down the road when you are older, your skin will thank you for that!
Always remember that the key to youthful and bouncy skin is to always ensure that your skin is hydrated! It is recommended to apply the body lotions within 3 minutes after a bath, as that is when your skin absorbs the most moisture ;)
Jump on the Vaseline bandwagon with me and let's work our way to better skin!

Hmm.. I guess it took me about a month or so to realise that I have completely missed out my pictures from my Bangkok trip in June and there I was thinking I have nothing exciting to document on this space..  hahahahaha and so, here are some visuals from my Bangkok trip in June, Enjoy! 
 Couldn't contain my excitement in the airport because it's my first trip to Bangkok in 2014!!!
I can't believe I took that long since the last trip to return seeing how many times I actually ventured to the land of smiles last year. kekekekekke, +66 here I go again!
 Ooo for those who are curious about what I flew, I took Scoot and got the tickets at a sale, it was about SGD$140ish a person, tickets courtesy of my lovely J x hehehe

Upon reaching Aaron picked us and we went straight to King Kong for buffet!!!
 We were starving by the time we arrived and what a better way to stuff ourselves full than buffet?!?!
King Kong has several outlets across Bangkok so if you're keen to try it out you can google the addresses! It was about SGD$20 per person tho, slightly costly on the Bangkok side since you can get cheaper buffet elsewhere in Thailand however if I'm not wrong King Kong is considered the slightly higher priced bbq-buffet restaurant in Bangkok! Nevertheless it was $20 well spent! Noms~~

Since there wasn't an objective to this trip in particular, be prepared to see tons of visuals on food. HAHA, I mean since there wasn't much for us to do we pretty much spent our time eating lolol 

Aaron took us to an eatery near his place - Thonglor , for yummy breakfast!

 Indulged in cheap-ass duck rice and noodles!!! :>

After which we decided to go erm... bowling. Hahahahahaha

 followed by sinful desserts at After You!!!
 Ooooh, I've missed my toasties sooooooo much!!!

I also got my new prescription glasses made by at the optical shop owned by the sisters behind DazzleMeLens, my no.1 favourite lenses shop in Thailand!
Will do a post on them really soon :) Do keep a lookout for it~

We went for a massage at Health land after before heading for dinner at Chok Dee Dim Sum just opposite Aaron's place~

 pao nearly as big as my hand!!!

 We didn't head out that night as we travelled so much that day I ended up sleeping really early!
It was worth it as we got to wake up early the next day for Roast :)

Oh I forgot to mention... the heat in Bangkok then was CRAZY!?
I have never experience such an intense heat wave EVER IN MY LIFEEEEEE, it was like 43degs in the day can you imagine? I was running into every place air-conditioned possible cos it was too hot to bear... *faints*

My favourite strawberry iced tea from Roast - perfect for the weather!

We bummed around the rest of the day around Siam before heading back to freshen up for dinner!

 I left the guys for abit and met the sisters + brains behind DazzleMeLens for dinner at Audrey :) 
 heard and read so much of this place, finally I got to see it in real life! :) 
 They did the ordering and I must say I really liked the food in Audrey!
 It's mostly Thai food but some has a western fusion to it so some dishes are really different from what you'll find outside and I love it sooooo much!!!

 My ultimate favourite of that evening was this Thai Milk Tea Crepe Cake *drools.....
I have been craving this every single day since I came back, someone tell me SG has this!!! :(
 A big Thank You to Pan and Sis for dinner that night, I can't wait to fly back to Bangkok again soon!

Back at Ekkamai........ here's a quick pic with TOBY!!!!
 Awwwww lookie at that face xxx

We partied at Slim that night, no pictures just because..... erm yea..
Anyhoos 5 people, 5 bottles, almost died but thank god we were cool~~~ Wahahahahahaha 
 Our last day day in Bangkok saw us at Bankara, Sukhumvit Soi 39 (if I'm not wrong hahaha)

 Oh miiiiiiii lords, this is best bowl of ramen I have ever tasted?!?! 
 Okay, I haven't eaten all the ramens in the world to make that statement but it's sooooooo good?!?!!?
I can't even explain, every sip I take I'll go "omg.... it's so nice...." 
Sigh, this is something I will crave for all the time until I get my ass back to Bangkok!!!

And yes, here's yet again an abrupt ending to my Bangkok post hehe
As mentioned there wasn't any objective to this trip, just a quick getaway from SG and chill in Bangkok with cheap food and awesome thai massage ㅋㅋㅋ
Looking forward to my next trip back there in Oct!!! Hehehehe x

the name of this store that I'm going to introduce won't come as a surprise cos.... I've done a few ig posts for them and they are - SHOPMINUTEHAND

What I love about SHOPMINUTEHAND is that they offer a range of effortlessly chic- yet stylish clothing. Not sure about you but I am a monochrome-hue-kinda-person so there are tons of apparels in basic tones such as black/white/nude and navy. No doubt some of the safest colours one could ever dress in :) 

Here are some of the outfits that were courtesy of SHOPMINUTEHAND..

White Ruffles Mesh Top, I like how the shoulder pads created a slightly structured look 
and turned a simple top into something different than usual! :) 

Lace-Up Romper in Black, definitely one of my most favourite pieces!!
Love the fit of this piece as well as the laced sleeve detailing :)

Lastly the 2-piece Mignon Suit in Black as well :)

 The best part about matching pieces is that you don't have to rack your brains on how to match the pieces together! :>

Here's a piece of good news... currently SHOPMINUTEHAND is holding a summer sale featuring dresses as low as $5 and discounts up to 80% off!
