It’s that time of the month again, dear friends. The heat of the summer sun is slowly leaving us, making way for the cooler months. The change in season also signals new discoveries, and we’re already eyeing quite a few. Here are things we can’t wait to get a hold of this month.

I've been looking for a new unique clutch bag and I think Alexander McQueen's The Box bag fits the bill. I like it because it's edgy but not so much so; it's classic but not too girly — just what I like to add to my wardrobe this season. It has an antique luggage and treasure chest feel, which is quite distinctive. It's also versatile; I can use it for day or night simply by detaching or attaching the wide leather strap or decorative chain hardware.

Time flies and we're halfway through 2017! I'll be channelling my inner Wonder Woman to get through the month of June with the latest Melissa Glam + Wonder Woman shoes. These pointy-toe flats, printed with the Justice League superheroine in anticipation of the live-action film, will serve as a visual reminder as I go about my day feeling confident and empowered.

I have very dry skin, so aside from drinking as much water as I can, I’m always on the lookout for good hydrating products. The Mamonde Floral Hydro line definitely piqued my interest. Infused with Narcissus bulb extract, which I heard is great at hydrating the skin, the line is definitely something dry-skinned gals like me would benefit from.

PANDORA's 2017 ring collection caught my eye because of its theme: DO. It's all about taking action, being empowered in reaching your dreams and passions, and the collection exudes the intricacy and beauty of realising the power to just 'DO' things. Love it!

Bags are one of the fashion items that I rarely splurge on. But when I do, I make sure that it's roomy and can be easily paired with almost any outfit. This Givenchy Duetto bag's cross-body design has all the things that I look for in a bag. I love that you can adjust the strap so that it will complement the vibe of any outfit. The perfect, casual bag for me.

I think I speak for every girl when I say we can never have enough lipsticks. It was love at first sight when I laid my eyes on this bold beauty, the L'Oreal Infallible Le Rogue in Bold Bordeaux. I'm not a fan of glossy and creamy lipsticks, but this one stays on even after a meal. I will definitely rock this shade for a night out with the girls.

The weather has been quite confusing lately. One minute it's as hot as summer, then rain starts pouring. While we're not sure whether to start bringing our jackets when we go out, we enjoy the element of surprise as much as we love how the release of beauty and fashion news come in waves. To start off the week on a good note, here are some of the things we think you should know about.


Britney Spears Makeup?




Will Britney Spears release a makeup collection with Too Faced Cosmetics? The photo above, posted by Too Faced founder Jerrod Blandino, has sparked rumours of a collab with the singer. While it might be a bit of a reach to assume so, wanting a collection from the pop superstar at a time when celebrity makeup collaborations are aplenty doesn't seem off at all. 


OxygenXBieber



From one pop superstar to another, here's something that will definitely excite Beliebers everywhere. Philippine clothing brand Oxygen has launched a collection of licensed Bieber merchandise — from cool shirts to jackets, you can play eenie meenie but always end up with a piece to remember the Biebs by.

Make Up For Ever In SG




We love learning about new things. And one of the more exciting new things we're looking forward to learning more about are the offerings at the first Make Up For Ever boutique in Singapore. You may visit it at Downton Gallery #01-06.

Enjoying a fun night out with friends is just what we recommend when things get tough at work or in other aspects of your life. Seeing your girlfriends and enjoying each other’s company while having a glass or two of wine can definitely make a world of difference. It’s not far off that you get carried away and drink more than you are planning to, but you don’t have to feel guilty about having a good time — yes, even if it makes your skin look dull the next morning.

We don’t want you to make it a habit to drink to your heart’s content every night, but we do have solutions for those times when you do. Here are just a few things you can do to bring life back to your hangover skin.

Go loco for coco

Drink lots of coconut water to give your body electrolytes a.k.a. re-hydrators. Coconut water is rich in sodium, calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus that your body craves after a night of drinking.

Hydrate your skin

Estelle & Thild Thirst Relief Serum, SGD63


Hydrate your skin on the outside as much as you take care of it from the inside. Use a hydrating product that will lock in moisture on your skin. Reap the benefits of hyaluronic acid from the Estelle & Thild Thirst Relief Serum.

Make it glow


Astalift White Bright Lotion, SGD64 for 130ml


Restore your skin’s glow by targeting the ingredient that causes hangover, Aldehyde. The improved Astalift White Bright Lotion contains Ferulic Acid, which counters the effects of Aldehyde, giving your skin’s natural glow back.

Doze off

Busy nights make for great memories, but make sure to give yourself time to rest, too. Put your phone on silent mode, play music that’s calming to you, light a candle and sleep.
