#Operationkitties: Pre-Wedding and Bridal florals from CottonandSage

With the many (way to many in fact) options in our local market, finding THE florist for your big day can be a pretty daunting task. Would you stick to the usual favourites that everyone keep talking about, or risk a hidden gem to fulfil your floral dreams? The florist you select will play a major role in setting the tone for your big day.. My florist would play a vitally important role on my big day since I've decided to scrape the idea of hiring a creative to style and conceptualized my wedding and focus solely on fresh blooms. You see, florals play a big part of my relationship with my husband (when we were teenagers, he used to surprise me with gerberas and lilies!), my social media posts and my home decor; I wanted to share that love with my guests on our big day. To make sure all of these blooms are beautiful and within your budget, picking the right florist (and working with her) is crucial to say the least. So I started my research pretty early on..

By luck, I first got to know about CottonandSage on her Valentine's Day Special and found myself impressed with her floral arrangement. It steered far far away from the traditional cringe-worthy bouquets and focuses on wild flower bouquets I'm crazy on. Thus, we decided to work on my pre-wedding shoot for starters!

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noir Eau Fraiche // FATCAT Ice Cream Bar

Blessed Friday everyone! Before I introduce you to the newly launched LPRN Intense... let's talk about Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noir Eau Fraiche instead that was launched earlier this year instead!

A new addition to La Petite Robe Noire’s perfume wardrobe, the new Petal Dress is still easily recognisable in it's legendary glass bottle with a soft green lacquer that screams fresh, green and Spring all at once. It opens up with an explosion of citrus accords of mandarin, lemon and bergamot scattered with a shower of green notes. It then moves on to a soft floral heart of Bulgarian and Turkish rose, almond blossom, freesia and jasmine. Finally, it settles to a gourmand base of delicious pistachio imbued with white musk and patchouli. Such a joyful green sparkling floral scent with a delicate, soft, silky drydown... Pleasant, a little sweet, close to skin without being offensive to the nose, it sure is perfect for Sunday brunches, won't you agree?

Bobbi Brown Art Stick Duo for Estée Lauder's Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

October has always been my second favorite month (after December - Hello X'mas & B'day month) in the beauty world as it is Breast Cancer Awareness month! This is the time of the year where several cosmetics brands will do their part to support BCA by creating limited edition products packaged in every shade of pink you can think of. This year, I choose Bobbi Brown Art Stick Duo where $10.00 from every purchase goes to the B.C.R.F. :)

Stubborn Curves Solution at Clarins Skin Spa

After my hot and cold treatments at Halley, I've decided to make a last minute decision (just one day prior to the wedding) to pop down to Clarins Skin Spa at Wheelock Place for some help with my curves. Tucked away at a cozy corner at Level 5, the tranquility of the place makes me wonder if I'm still within bustling Orchard Road at times.

#Operationkitties: Bridal Nails by CoutureNail

When I was much younger, my ideal bridal nails was a classic French manicure that will complement and complete my wedding day look. Of course that mentality changed over the years and with the increasingly creative nail art that I am constantly exposed to on my social medias.. I decided to still opt for soft, neutral shades but with a bit of sparkle that will match both my gowns on my AD!
