Health: MIRAE Collagen

Everyone is busy, myself included. Sometimes I can't even find the time to properly go through my skincare routine as there are just so much to do. Still, it is important to take care of ourselves, not only on the outside but on the inside as well. So what's the solution? Take supplements, of course.

You and I have long heard of the benefit of consuming collagen. In short, it helps give you better skin and better health. But, it can be expensive to consume. I feel fortunate at times to be given the chance to consume various types of collagen and of course, to share my experience and thoughts with you. The latest product that I've encountered is the MIRAE Collagen which contains 100% Natural Collagen Peptide Support Complex.

Carinn x Invisalign: Wearing my Aligners!

Omg! I can't believe it actually happened.. After months (maybe years) of waiting to wear braces, I've finally started wearing my aligners OFFICIALLY!

As mentioned in my previous post, I received a call from Q&M Dental Surgery Molek that my aligners were ready and I could make an appointment with them the next day to get them fitted. It was so random but heck, was I prepared. I was so excited that I couldn't stop talking about it the whole day to my bf. He volunteered to accompany me to the clinic the next day to snap some photos for me as well (+10points).

Dr Matthew showing me my aligners. They actually have tiny numbers on them to remind you which pair is which, and how to differentiate the upper form lower aligners.

Carinn x Invisalign: Where to get Invisalign Done in Johor Bahru? [Q&M Dental Surgery Molek]

Happy Saturday! I do apologise for the lack of updates last week as I was on vacation in Phuket. Will be blogging about my trip there soon!

Now, many of you have asked me where do I get my Invisalign done. And many are not aware that you are actually get them done in Johor Bahru itself, instead of having to travel to KL or Singapore. Saves so much time! 
I am getting my treatment done at Q&M Dental Surgery, Taman Molek. It is the headquarters of the chain of Q&M Dental Clinics in JB. It is located in the same row as Lavendar Bistro Molek, in case you're wondering. They are awarded the Best Dental Clinic of the Year 2014/2015 and I'm not surprised! My clinic is part of the Q&M Dental Group and they are one of the largest private dental healthcare group in Singapore. A quick search on their Facebook page, I fond that they actually already have 15 years of experience, after the first establishment back in 1996. In 2010, !&M Dental Group ventured into Malaysia, with 4 other clinics in Johor Bahru now (Nusa Bestari, Taman Mount Austin & Bukit Indah), 2 clinics in Selangor and one more in KL. A few of my friends living in Singapore have told me that I am really lucky to receive treatment from Q&M as they are one of the most reputable dental clinics there is!

Beauty: Maybelline Hypersharp Wing Eyeliner

So I got home one day and found a parcel with an adorable wings headband and new eyeliner to try out. Talk about a pleasant surprise! Now tell me, what are some of your eyeliner woes? Mine would be not being able to get the balanced winged eyeliner for both eyes. Luckily for me (and I bet a lot of you girls out there!), Maybelline has recently introduced the Hypersharp Wing Eyeliner for perfect, balanced wings!

Beauty: Sunplay Skin Aqua Sarafit UV Essence & UV Mist SPF50 PA++++ [Floral Fragrance]

Here are my travel essentials. What's yours?

Now answer me this, what's the most important part of your skincare? If you do all the basic steps (cleanse, tone, moisturise) but fail to use SUNBLOCK, it's basically redundant in the end. Sunblock or sunscreen serves to shield your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. This slows down aging and formation of age spots! I used to be one of those lazy girls who hate applying sunblock until I found out about its importance.. Now I can't leave the house without it!!

Shopping: My Wishlist on Wishtrend.com

I have a confession to make: The more I work around beauty products everyday, the more I get tempted to get more of it to try. Some people say working around something for too long will cause you to get immune to it but so far, that's not the case for me >< I'm always on the lookout for more innovative beauty products to try out, even though my room clearly has no more space for it.. I especially love Korean beauty products as I find that they suit my skin more, and are more affordable and innovative. Seriously, the Koreans have some of the most unique idea to package or use a product.

A quick search on the net will help you discover Wishtrend.com, a website selling Korean beauty products that exists to "Help you be beautiful". As long as you WISH to be beautiful, you will be. Wishtrend explores the world for the best cosmetics & skincare and delivers them to your doorstep. Even though the site is from Korea and displays prices using US Dollars (UDS), the great news is that they do deliver to our country as well!

Travel: #AABC Asean Traveler Contest!

I am the best candidate to be AirAsia Asean Traveller's Selfie Expert because I am the modern day social media butterfly (pfft.. social butterfly was so yesterday!) and you can be sure I'll keep my friends & followers updated wherever I am with my photos... and my face! :D Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Swarm.. You name it, I'm on it. Social media is my life, and I'm glad that I managed to incorporate this passion into my job and blog now, which makes me even happier. Besides being a Selfie Expert, my friends also label me as the "OOTD Queen" so I'll have my outfits planned before I go to any of these places.

My Blog Is 3!

It's my blog's 3rd Anniversary today! And to celebrate... I'm lying at home, sick in bed with tissue paper stuffed up my nose. Hahaha not very glam, I know XD 

I started this blog on this day 3 years ago to pen down my thoughts (has it really been 3 years?), but I was so inactive and I only started actively blogging in 2014. But still count lah right, still it's unofficial born-day mah :p 

I had plans this year to host a big giveaway on my blog's birthday or maybe start a Facebook page or change my domain (like finally), but what I did not expect was to be so overwhelmed that I won't have time to do anything else.. COMING SOON OK! ;) Also maybe cos I'm a huge procrastinator and not that great at multitasking hahaha. Would just like to use this post to apologise to & thank my readers/ sponsors, plus let you know the reason why I've been quite inactive lately. 

Note: This post is to share with you my thoughts ever since joining the workforce, what I've learnt, appreciation and just to keep you guys updated a little bit on my life. Not complaining lah :p
Also to thank you all for sticking with me for so long!!!

[Guest Post] Looking Great on a Budget!

Yoohoo! Back with another guest post for the month! I love having fellow bloggers share their thoughts and ideas with me, and today I'm going to share one from Regina of Tee and Me in Australia. She's got some great ideas to looking great on a budget. What with GST implementation and all now, perhaps these tips would be a great help to you to look & feel great without spending a bomb :)

**************
The common misconception for most women (and men) is that looking good costs a ton of money. Many young and aspiring entrepreneurs who want to match up to well-dressed and established business owners struggle with this. After all, buying an entire top of the line wardrobe can be costly.
While it is true that buying clothes can be an investment, it does not always have to break the bank to look nice. There are a lot of options to looking professional and well-polished without going broke.

Eats & Treats: Dream Cafe

In a blink of an eye, half a year has gone by. I had all these great things planned for the year but after 6 months, I'm still trying to get my life in order. Talk about not progressing -.- Anyway, just to take away some negativity, let's talk a little about dreams. 

Everyone of us has dreams. Be it big or small, a dream is the passion you're living with your eyes open. I still can't say for sure what my dream in life is, but I know everyday I'm doing something to achieve it and make my life, and that of those around me, better. Different people have different dreams, just like in the case of Chef Patrick Loh who decided to pursue his dream and start up Dream Cafe at Taman Mount Austin.
