These days, many of us are always striving to achieve that level of perfection – leading us to become unsatisfied with who we are. But as we inch away from the momentary high of welcoming 2017 and ease into the year, it is important to constantly remind ourselves to embrace who we truly are. Forget being the girl of anyone else’s dream. Why not focus on being the girl of your own desire?

Whether it’s taking up a new hobby, or cutting out toxic people in your life, only you have the power to be the best version of yourself, and of course, have fun while you’re doing – and being – it.



The Girl by Tommy Hilfiger, inspired and fronted by social media star and supermodel Gigi Hadid, embodies exactly that. Its captivating scent of green pear, violet leaf, green fig, and velvety jasmine perfectly captures the individuality and confidence of every woman. The Girl is all about being true to yourself and appreciating every moment in life. It’s more than just a fragrance – it’s a personality that speaks of uniqueness and self-acceptance.

So, how can you become #TheGirl? Keep reading below for our tips, plus find out how you can win your very own The Girl by Tommy Hilfiger Eau de Toilette!

Love thyself

In order for you to be happy with who you are, you need to learn to accept yourself and love you for you – flaws and all. Once you learn self-acceptance, that’s when you truly embody the essence of The Girl: someone who’s proud of her uniqueness and does not feel the need to please society. Think about it: if you don’t love yourself, how do you expect anyone else to?

Attitude is key

When you’re confident, it reflects through the way you think, the way you act, and the way you present yourself. Get rid of the negative voices in your head; don’t dwell on your failures and welcome empowerment. Take ownership of your self-confidence.

Bring on the sunshine

Believe it or not, laughter really is the best medicine. Make sure you take the effort to look at the good things in life and laugh, love, and live. It not only brightens up your day, it will also liven up someone else’s too. Bring on the good vibes, and relax your body and mind.

Surround yourself with a support system

As German philosopher Karl Marx once said: “Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you’re in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.” Filtering out negativity in your life also means cutting out people who suck the positive energy out of you. Always be around people who enrich and inspire you, and who make you a better person. Once you let go of the toxic ones, we promise you’ll see a major change in your life.

Have fun – loads of fun

Don’t sweat the small stuff; life is an adventure if you want it to be. So go – have fun! And if you find yourself in a bad mood, why not spritz on some scented energy for a little pick-me-up? We hear The Girl by Tommy Hilfiger makes you feel the same way it smells: fresh, energetic and fun.

The week is coming to a close. We're looking forward to what next week will bring, especially since we're so close to celebrating the day of hearts, but we also can't help but look back at what happened in the past week. There have been fun new things to discover, but there is also one that is not too peachy. Despite that, we're ending the week with more learnings, and we're looking forward to new ones. Let's recap the week together, shall we?


--------------------------


Calvin's New Look


You've seen the logo in countless undergarments sported by models and celebrities before, but now it has a new look. Calvin Klein has changed their logo, but it's still as cool as ever.


Au revoir, Lancome

Following the footsteps of its sister brand under the L'Oreal Luxe Division, Shu Uemura, Lancome is leaving Philippine shores. The brand has yet to announce when their last store in the country will close.

--------------------------


Long live, Lady Gaga




Lady Gaga performed at the halftime show of Super Bowl LI, and it was spectacular, to say the least. On top of it all, she also slyly addressed discrimination issues in the U.S. during her performance.


Logo mania is back

Did you used to sport shirts, shoes and other articles of clothing with logos on them when you were younger? Well, if you still have them, it's time to whip them out because logo-mania is coming back. The bigger the logo, the better!



--------------------------


Have you Jamsu-ed?




This beauty hack surfaced late last year, but it looks like it's not going to go down any time soon. This Korean trick, which requires you to put baby powder on your face before submerging it in cold water for 30 seconds, is believed to be the secret to a flawless base of face makeup.



Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder



The collaboration between Estee Lauder and fashion designer slash former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is available again. Get your hands on the collection, which will feature new shades as well as previously released ones, while you can.

For some, their better half is a significant other. For others, their better half could be a close girlfriend or a sibling. This February, while we agree that love should be celebrated every day, Valentine’s Day serves as a beautiful timely reminder that love is love for all. As digital influencer and fashion entrepreneur Lucinda Zhou puts it: “Valentine’s Day is that special day to show even more appreciation towards every significant person in my life – whether it’s my husband, close girlfriends, or even my sisters.”



It’s not too far off to say that her sister and business partner, Jolene, is Lucinda’s better half. “Jolene and I have very different personalities. I am more outspoken, whereas she is the one with a cooler character. In many ways, because of our differences, we complement each other – which makes working together a lot easier. Most of the time, we would even know what each other is thinking without verbally sharing it.”

Read on as Lucinda rounds up five Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the better half in her life – her sister. Plus: find out how you can win an SK-II Crystal Clear Skin Set worth SGD259!

-------------------------- 


Choo Yilin Earrings



“I am a huge fan of Choo Yilin’s designs. I always find it amazing how they make their jade pieces very wearable by adding modern elements like rose gold or silver hardware to it.”

Glasshouse Triple Scented Candle



“Jolene loves scented candles, so this is a practical gift that she will definitely love and use.”


-------------------------- 


Victoria’s Secret Crush Eau de Parfum



“When I was thinking of an appropriate fragrance to give my sister on Valentine’s Day, Victoria’s Secret Crush was the first that came to mind. Its pink colour and feminine packaging is such a fitting V-Day gift.”

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick



“A girl can never have too many lipsticks. I decided to get the popular Lolita II shade – that is always sold out, by the way – to add to Jolene’s collection.”


-------------------------- 


SK-II Facial Treatment Essence



“Good things are meant to be shared. Since I’ve already kickstarted my SK-II journey with the iconic Facial Treatment Essence, it would be nice to have Jolene join me towards the road to crystal clear skin. The FTE is lightweight, absorbs fast, and feels literally like water – perfect for humid weather!”
