MOVIE MUSINGS: THE GIFT | RETURN TO SENDER

So I caught 2 movies in the theatres this week and I decided that I will give my two cents worth of how I feel about them. Okay, truth to be told I just think that both were not really worth watching in the theatres so just thought that I would share (hahahaha)
The genre of both movies are along the lines of Thriller, Suspense... Psychological thriller, you get my drift. I have seen my fair share of such movies and so far most of them were great!  
I will give a really brief review as I don't want to give away too much and spoil the movie :)

The Gift
When married couple Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall) unexpectedly encounter Gordo (Joel Edgerton), an acquaintance from Simon's past, little do they know that their perfect lives will be thrown into a terrifying tailspin.
WELL... This movies does get you jumping at certain scenes so I would say effort for that. Interesting plot twist at the end but I felt like it could be waaaaaay better! I walked out of the cinema thinking that this movie was pretty boring and kinda sucks but it wasn't until the next day when I saw the second movie...

which brings us to, Return To Sender
A nurse living in small town goes on a blind date with a man who is not the person he says he is.
I honestly had really high hopes for this movie seeing how well Rosamund Pike did in Gone Girl. (I thought Gone Girl was such a good movie) Hence I walked into the theatres expecting this movie to meet my expectations. BUT omg, just when I thought The Gift was boring this was worst. Tons of dialogues, long and draggy scenes with one of the crappiest endings ever! Got us wondering how did the movie ever made it into the theatres?!? I would highly suggest NOT watching this in cinemas.
It was truly a disappointment :(

This was the first time I have watched 2 bad movies within a week.. not quite ready to face another disappointment soon. However, Inside Out will be out today so I'm trying my best to be hopeful for it! It had better not fail me as I've been looking forward to watch it since forever!

TRIPLE TRANSLUCENT SKIN TRIO BY ATLAS MEDISPA

This year I have had my skin really well taken care of none other than Atlas Medical Group and today I'm really happy to share with everyone another new treatment which has been introduced by Atlas Medispa- the Korean 'Triple Translucent' Skin Trio"
As mentioned in my previous post, I was given a chance to give this treatment a try and so here's my review!
This treatment has probably got to be one of my favourite treatments at Atlas so far as it combines facial along with laser to achieve upmost results for the skin! 

Just like the name suggests, the treatment comprises of 3 different steps
1. Revlite Laser Toning by Doctor SM Yuen
2. Aqua Radiance Medical Grade Facial
3. Korean Intense Moisture Mask


 First up would be the Variable Pulse Light laser session. Basically this laser rejuvenates your skin and improves the texture of your skin resulting in a more radiant and brighter facial appearance!
I have always loved the laser sessions with Atlas as it keeps my complexion clear and radiant :) 
After the laser session comes the facial which I have always enjoyed~ I was pampered with the Aqua Radiance Medical Grade Facial. This facial helps restore all the moisture that could have been lost during the laser session (the laser can be a little drying on the skin) as well as replenish the moisture that your skin needs which results in a plumper and more hydrated skin!
Also, not forgetting the final step which comprises of a Korean Intense Moisture Mask which locks in all the moisture to ensure your skin absorbs the best! I could see my skin glowing after one session and the results lasted even days after my treatment.
Had an event that evening and as you can see my skin was glowing and at it's ultimate radiance! :D

The Triple Translucent Skin Trio Treatment is now available at Atlas MediSpa at $128 (inc. GST)

DAZZLEMELENS: LENS OF THE MONTH (AUGUST)

It has been awhile since I did my last Lens of the Month post and boy am I glad to do another recommendation for this month! For those who have missed my previous lenses review from DazzleMeLens, feel free to click on the link at the side bar to read all my posts! :) 

Today I'm back to review 2 new lenses which I have been enjoying so far!
First up is my current favourite brown lenses- Chimmer Brown
When I first saw the lenses in the bottle they looked very normal to me so I didn't expect much but after putting in on I fell in love with it instantly! Not only does it brighten up my eyes, I really love the design of the lenses and how much life it gives to it! 
The brown tone is the right shade of brown and when in the sun/light the lenses really stand out. There is a subtle dark ring at the edges which slightly enlarges your pupils but not in a very extreme way so to me that is really the perfect size.
 These above are my current daily lenses and I have been getting compliments on it already! :)

As usual, my more commonly worn colours are Brown and Grey so my second pair would be grey lenses! This model is the Hermes Grey. This pair of lenses can come off a little 'strong' if you have always been wearing subtle lenses, I find this pair slightly more dramatic as it really intensifies your eyes and makes it look bigger and more alive! 
  I don't really wear this pair out in the day unless accompanied by heavier make-up or if I'm doing a shoot so my eyes can stand out a little more. Most of the time this pair comes out with me at night if I'm going for a party/dinner and is perfect when I want a stronger look on my face/eyes!
It also looks really pretty when you take pictures (especially with flash!!!)
Current favourite grey lenses!!! :)

PASJEL BABY SKIN SG

So recently I have been digging this new skincare brand which I was introduced to and it is none other than PasJel! PasJel was first established in Thailand and it's popularity has exploded out of its shores and around to it's neighbouring countries in Asia! I have always been a fan of Thailand skincare products as they are formulated well to suit Asian skin and have always been effective!

One of the few things that attracted me to their products were that most of them contained natural ingredients which are great for the skin! Plus points for natural ingredients :) 
Before drafting out this post, I had about a month to try out the products and after a month has passed I can say that I am truly pleased with them! I have picked out 4 products to choose from and here's what I chose!

PasJel Fluffy Favour
As I was running out of my old moisturiser, I thought it was timely that I get to try a new one out! For me I tend to lean towards moisturisers that wouldn't leave my skin sticky or oily, so initially I was a little skeptical to try out a new brand when I haven't tested yet. 

However I still decided to go along with my choice and to my surprise I ended up loving this product to bits!The PasJel Fluffy Favour contains Bee Venom and Royal Jelly extract which aids in firming and bringing back elasticity to the skin. At the same time it intensively moisturises with anti-ageing benefits! Packed with tons of goodness for the skin :)
The scent of this moisturiser is really nice and pleasant, the texture is extremely smooth and after applying the product is absorbed well leaving no residue on the skin. It also has that soft and velvety touch after! 

PasJel Oh my Egg Blue (Whitening Formula Soap)
This soap works like a bar soap and lathers when in contact with water, one of the main properties of this soap is that it helps brighten your skin which in turn gives you a clearer complexion!

This soap can be used on the face as well as the body so it's great if you would like to brighten your skin on any part of your body! I'm a fan of skin whitening/brightening products so it was a joy being able to try this out and achieve radiant glowing skin at the end of it all! I have so many friends telling me how much fairer I have become compared to before :) Three cheers to fairer skin!!!

PasJel Premiere Silver Pink Facial Mask
As a fan of masks I couldn't pass off the chance to try out a new mask and I chose this one from PasJel! This mask packs a punch with ingredients that helps reduce inflammation as well as to tone and tighten the skin help you to achieve younger looking skin! 
Basically one word to summarise this mask would be an all-in-1 mask for your face :) 

PasJel Sun Fighting Gel
This has probably got to be my favourite product out of the rest! Gone were the days when sunblock used to be sticky, oily and leaves your face feeling and looking weird after application. I love how this sunblock is colourless and glides on so well on you skin!!! 
Upon application it literally melts onto your skin and is absorbed right away. Not only that it leaves a velvety surface which makes applying make up after super easy, it works almost as well as a primer does that I don't even use my usual primer anymore when I use this! 
Really thankful to PasJel Singapore for sending over these products as I truly enjoy using them!

SALON VIM: BACK TO PURPLE!

And..... finally after 3 long years and countless times I have been whining about how much I've missed my purple hair, IT'S BACK!!!
Never thought that I would ever colour my hair like this again and I was quite sad previously when I decided to go back to brown... I even told myself "at least I can look back in my life next time and know that I have attempted it" (looks back at past pictures and admire my purple tresses)
I have also whined about it to my closest friends about how I miss having purple hair and how much I wanted it back. However my hair was pretty short, I wanted to grow it and have healthy and shiny hair again so if I wanted purple it meant bleaching... :(
I have tried purple highlights/streaks but it still couldn't dyeing my entire head purple haha.

So last month I had a spur of a moment thing to dye my hair blonde/silver, it worked but then I got sick of it really quickly, yesterday at Salon Vim I thought to myself... "Since my hair is already bleached and so light, might as well?" So I said PURPLE and never regretted my choice!!!

The purple this time is slightly different from the one I did previously, also I have a few blue highlights this time!
Was super happy when I saw the results and was even happier when I saw how it turned out in pictures! I cannot deny that I love it!!! 
For now I think I'm definitely stuck and hooked onto this color! :)

Salon Vim has an entirely new range of crazy colors available now so if you are down for something crazy and different on your tresses do pop by their outlets! Also, they will be extending their texture control Anti-frizz hair treatment promotion until the 31st August so if your tresses are in need of some pampering as well, now's your chance! :D

#BESIRANGERS: PONY IN KL

So just about a little more than a week ago, I made the most impromptu decision and trip to KL!
Packed my bag on Friday evening in hopes to take a bus on Saturday morning but I fell asleep, woke up at 12pm and hopped onto a 1.30pm bus at Golden Mile. Couldn't believe our plans until we reached the checkpoint hahahaha. This trip was totally random, didn't have a clue what we wanted to do so we just planned out day as it goes by~
The only place I can recognize in KL is probably the Pavilion Mall....To me it was like the Siam Paragon of KL haha.
Ippudo in KL is cheaper there as compared to Singapore so if you're there feel free to pop by for ramen! We tried the mentaiko gyoza and boy it was yummy!!! Not sure if it's permanently on their menu or if it's temporary but nevertheless if you come across it do try it!!!
Caught 2 movies while we were there (oh the movie tickets are really cheap too lol) Mission Impossible 4 as well as Fantastic 4. I can't believe how.... bad... Fantastic 4 was tho, I mean they had a chance to remake an entirely new franchise but it wasn't the least bit fantastic!
Utterly disappointed :(
Got to explore the more kampong areas of KL, honestly I have never been to such places so it was quite interesting to see them! Managed to go to a night market as well (not sure of the location) and there were so much cheap bargains and food!!!!
Okay so call me noob or what but I never knew a Magnum shop existed? Apparently it opened in SG for awhile but I didn't get to chance upon it so...... Full on tourist mode in the shop at KL LOL
I think my customisation was quite boring- Vanilla, White Chocolate, Oreo, Marshmallows and Choco balls. Come to think of it if I were to order again I might just pick the same ingredients because my tastebuds are boring like that hahaha.
Spent a total of about 6 and a half days there before we decided to go back haha. By the way I travelled by coach both ways and it costed me about $30 per trip! Really glad I made the decision to come this time as I was never really a fan of going to KL as I thought it would be the same as being in Singapore but this time going with G made me see a different side of KL and I think I might slowly grow to like the place :D Probably will be making plans to pop by again soon so I can't wait!
