Youth Code Eye Essence

Advertorial Let's talk about our eyes today!! Starting with a bit of trivia!! Did you know, that the skin around your eyes is  at its thinnest , thinner than anywhere else on your face? At just 0.3mm to 0.5mm, it is about 3-5 times thinner than skin elsewhere on your face, which is usually between 1mm to 1.6mm!! That's why the skin coutour around the eye area needs all the help it can get!! Not only is it the most fragile, it also also the most abused... We put most of our makeup on the eye area and sometimes get a little too violent tugging out falsies or wiping away waterproof mascara... We rub our eyes when they get itchy, tugging on the paper thin skin there... And I'm most guilty of this... I give my eyes no mercy at all whenever I'm awake, staring at my phone's bright sceen, the computer or TV... The stress gets to the eyes, causing constant blinking, dehydration etc. When it comes to skincare solutions for our eye ar

Advertorial As you all know I typically use false lashes to enhance my eyes. But fake lashes are, no matter what... fake. So sometimes when I see girls with super pretty thick and long natural eyelashes, perhaps enhanced with only mascara, I feel so jealous!! Kim Kardashian is particularly fond of flaunting hers -_- Show off!! She has said many times that those are her real lashes!! I also want!! I want to be one of these girls with *ahem* naturally luscious lashes framing my peepers!! Therefore, sometimes when I'm in the mood I also forgo the stick-on lashes and go for mascara instead!! When that time comes, I'm always hunting for the best mascara to use. I know a lot of girls don't bother to put too much eye makeup and fake lashes are too much for them. Mascara is also good for occasions like going to the pool or beach because fake lashes won't stay... and let's face it, swimming with fake lashes is just ridiculous. When it comes to the best m

Politics and Adultery

Just want to give my two cents on the recent Michael Palmer affair that has been dominating the headlines in Singapore lately. In case you are not Singaporean or you are but somehow still do not know what happened, basically it is your classic story of a politician who decided to have an affair, the news got leaked out, and he resigns his post. There are no sex tapes or naked cellphone photos accompanying this news (boring!) except some mushy smses discussing... fruit... but Singaporeans are still pretty excited about it. Our country is kinda boring.  Here's Michael Palmer with his mistress Laura Ong The first thing that popped into my mind when I heard of this was... "Not again? Why can't politicians keep their penises in their pants when they have so much to lose?" So I googled it and got some answers from various articles. The top answer to the Yahoo! Question of "Why do so many politicians have affairs?" is: "Power is the ultimate ap

Advertorial Ok, everyone knows I like shiny stuff right? Right... That's why I'm always blinging any of my possessions that can be blinged with loads and loads of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS!! My blinged up gadgets never fail to get me so much praise and attention :D Like this gorgeous camera? You love? But just sticking crystals on stuff is not the end of what you can do with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS!!! Thanks to this advert, I recently went to a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS workshop and it turns out you can also use their crystals to make your own jewellery!!! I mean, I've seen Swarovski Beads and Swarovski Sew-on Stones in craft shops before but because I always thought making your own jewellery was hard, I just never bothered to learn and try... BUT TO MY SURPRISE IT IS SO EASY!!! This opens up a whole new world of possibilities :D The front and back of my blinged up blackberry bold 9900 Just like with Swarovski Flat Back No Hot Fix, the possiblities are endless
