Harajuku street style


Today's post will be full of pictures!! :D

And I love the topic because it is about Japanese fashion, which I ADORE!! ♥♥

In recent years I've found my fashion calling and Japanese trends have affected the way I dress and style... My favourite of all the Japanese brands is Liz Lisa of course...

Me in a Liz Lisa shop - heaven!

The Japanese are crazy about their styles. If you ever go to Tokyo you'd understand how much time and effort they put into dolling themselves up. From immaculate hair to nails to shoes to headgear... They all look effortlessly stylish! Not an inch of sloppiness.

And one of these fashion forward places in Tokyo is the famous Harajuku!

Taken when I was in Harajuku

Ok fine the people in this photo are not that stylish but it was 40 degrees out and still the Japanese do their layering thing! Madness.

Not to lose out, Cheesie and I also did our best to blend in:

Enjoying a harajuku crepe. :D

But the sad thing is, most of these awesome Japanese labels are only available in Japan, not Singapore.


Tangs is bringing Harajuku to Singapore!!

Harajuku Street Style Pop-up Store is gonna be launching on our sunny island, bringing not one but FIFTEEN most fashion forward Japanese brands to Singapore! :D Excited!

And I get to play dress up! Qiuqiu, Cheesie, Typical ben and I were invited to pick from a range of clothes those we like for a photoshoot! Cheesie came over to my place for the photo-taking so here are my pictures (some with her).

Style 1:

Floaty ruffled floral blue top with ruffled high waisted shorts. Very comfortable!

My favourite part of the outfit is the BOOTS... 
Thigh high suede boots with a ribbon at the back... 
Wedged for maximum comfort. OMG I love them!

Pic stolen from Cheesie's blog. She is wearing my socks and shoes lol

Cheesie is in what she calls an Otona style, meaning adult. The look is usually preppy and vintage-looking, if I'm not wrong.

Style 2:

Autumn tube outfit that can be worn as a dress or as a skirt (if you are tall enough - I am not). 
Love the wedges! :)

With Cheesie working an eclectic style

Hope you like these pictures!!

Fruity Fruity Lite X 2


Hello! The reason why this entry is titled "Fruity fruity lite x 2" is coz this is my second advertorial for Fruity Lite!

My first one can be found HERE.

This time I am introducing you guys to Fruity Lite Extra!

So what IS Fruity Lite? It is the no. 1 digestive and oil cleansing drink sold in Watsons!

The healthy, refreshing plum-like all natural digestive drink is specially manufactured through advanced scientific methods from high grade hawthorn fruit.

Let me quote my old blog post on what the drink does:

  • It can help digestion, reduce lipid levels in the body, reduce bad breath and improve blood circulation! It also exhibits potent antioxidant properties.

Not only that, the best thing I like about it is that it cleanses your body of excess oil and encourages bowel movements!

Food is very convenient and delicious is Singapore... But...

They are also often chockful of oil!! After a rich (albeit yummy) meal, we often end up feeling bloated, queasy or even constipated.

With Fruity Lite you can do your best to prevent that from happening with all natural goodness. :)

Inside each box of Fruity Lite are sachets. How awesome?

The sachets can easily be fitted into a purse or pocket. I imagine it would be great for office ladies to bring to their lunch. Substitute your unhealthy drink with Fruity Lite - just mix with water! Much better than sodas and soft drinks.

Fruity Lite Extra even comes with added vitamin C and xylitol, a healthy alternative to sugar and does not contribute to high blood sugar levels. :)

I'm sure another great thing about having less oil in your body - it shows up in your skin! Less zits, less oil seeds and a better complexion. All in a day's work. :D

Want to give it a try?

Tear open a sachet...

Mix with either hot or cold water

This is how it looks like.

Mmmmm...! It tastes like a refreshing mild version of iced lemon/plum tea. Really cleanses your palette and is not too sweet.

Give Fruity Lite drinks a try today!

From 25th of July till 26th August, purchase a big pack of Fruity Lite and get a smaller pack FREE!!!

A box of Huiji Fruity Lite is available for $6.95 and Fruity Lite Extra is available for $7.90 at all major supermarkets, pharmacies and leading medical halls.

It is so affordable... Give it a try and let me know whether it works for you!

After all you know what they say... You are what you eat!

p/s: This advert is for girls only, and I'd be talking about our monthly woes. Men and boys, you have been warned!

Familiar? Periods are such a pain, pun intended!

On average, a woman can lose up to 50% of their daily requirement of iron during each menstrual cycle, and 80% of women suffer from period discomfort every month!

It makes us lethargic and tired, and not to mention when we get cramps, it can get really painful and uncomfortable!

When it is that time of the month, you just want to huddle up in bed with soft covers and do nothing else.

Preferably with our favourite soft toy!

But of course, life goes on even as our periods come. We still need to work or study and do our daily things! We cannot afford to lie in bed all day!

So if you want to huddle, you can huddle up with some ChocoMarvel!

What is ChocoMarvel?

It is a delicious chocolatey drink made with plant extracts and 100% natural ingredients which helps us girls to reduce the discomfort during menstruation and stay energetic and fresh through the day!

This is the first natural menstrual care drink in the market!


- replenishes iron loss
- helps reduce bloating and tension
- helps improve facial complexion
- if you have bad cases of PMS, it can also help maintain hormone levels, thus reducing irritability and depression!

And on top of all that, it has a rich chocolate taste. Not to worry, it is low fat!

Inside the box is 8 convenient sachets. Can be brought to work, school, or even for travel. You can even leave a box in the office!

So whenever you need relief for period pain or just simply perk-me-up drink, here's what you do:

Prepare a mug with 150ml of hot water.

One sachet of ChocoMarvel

And here's how it looks like before stirring! Looks so yummy!

Here's after stirring!

Just holding a warm mug and feeling the velvety hot chocolate slip down your throat is already somehow comforting. :D

Drinking up because ChocoMarvel can help relieve discomfort within 1-2 hours!

The taste is almost exactly like hot chocolate except a little less thick/sweet and with a wee bit of herbal undertones. I actually think it would also taste very nice if mixed with a bit of milk or with whipped cream!

Get ChocoMarvel for a better time during your next period! Afterall we spend almost 6 years of our lives menstruating! Might as well do it enjoyably, right?

Wish I had ChocoMarvel when I was younger! I used to have really, really bad cramps every single month that really rendered me almost immobile and none of the old wives' tales like rubbing your tummy clockwise (I can't believe I fell for that) worked!

Go to ChocoMarvel's website now HERE, and their facebook fanpage HERE!

ChocoMarvel is available at Guardian, Unity, and Watsons for $19.90 (8 sachets). Twin packs are also available at John Little, OG and Robinsons for $36.90.

Want to win some ChocoMarvel?

Just tell me how you cope with your period cramps and how you want to try our ChocoMarvel!

Send your answers in no more than 100 words with your IC, phone number, and blog url (if any) to 10 winners will be selected to win! Good luck. :D
