About RoxanneChia
Hello from The Skinny Scout! I blog over at www.theskinnyscout.com, on all things beauty, style and travel for the savvy jet-setting babe in you.

Like almost everyone else, I love fancy hotel stays and I miss Europe and California a whole lot. My guilty pleasure is a good fondant moelleux with a generous serving of vanilla bean ice cream by the side. Oh, lazy pool days are the best!

I still cannot believe I’m about to be a mum. Officially #37weekspregnant today, so our little one is safe to pop out anytime now.

I wonder how my life will change, and how much of it will still be the same as it was before I even got pregnant. Exciting times ahead!

One thing is for sure though:
I foresee much more blogging and vlogging in the days to come, especially on beauty and style. I miss doing this so much - and the joy it brings me has recently been revived. So hooray to that!

Cute little basket by @3littlepicks. So tempted to get this but I’m not sure I *really* need it! 😍

Today is a good makeup day because you can’t tell I’m suffering from heartburn, am lethargic and am feeling feverish. But yes, I’m still going strong!

One course tonight and another one tomorrow morning. Learning never stops. #roxannechiarealty

People tell me I shouldn’t be working so hard at this stage in my pregnancy. #35weekspregnant But don’t all mums work till they are about to give birth? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Makeup deets:
Blush: @bobbibrown
Lip colour: @diormakeup
Foundation: @esteelauder
Brows: @rimmellondonus
Lashes: Some Japanese brand from @sasasingapore

What a day!

Cupcakes always make crazy schedules so much more bearable. High tea life, am I right? 🤣🧁😋 Bought these from @twelvecupcakes yesterday and the lychee rose one has an actual lychee in it near the base. What a pleasant surprise!

I don’t usually eat cupcakes but I had bought some as gifts and had to simply get some for myself too. They look way too pretty and they remind me of the extravagance that is Ladurée and Pierre Hermé. I miss France very much indeed!

At the Florence Residences show flat this afternoon again. #roxannechiarealty

Though I’m going to be away for a short while in a few weeks (because 👶🏼), I *know* that the property industry is where I’m meant to be. Already, I can’t wait to be back working full steam ahead!

MAS Chief says- Singapore is NOT relaxing property cooling measures soon... so

HOW TO BUY? - so many policies & restriction

WHAT TO BUY? - so many new launches and should you buy Resale or New Launch 
WHEN TO BUY? - will the prices be coming down

Such major decisions can be simplified with a guided checklist and game rules. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.

PM me to book your slots for this Friday’s 🔥free consumer seminar🔥 soon. It’s gonna be another power packed seminar with impactful and insightful sharing, as seen from past seminars.

I bought these at a sale over the weekend. So excited over these gorgeous shades!
Can’t wait to wear them, so I did an unboxing to show you my pretty lippie additions before I wear them to nowhere and everywhere.
Let me know if you’d like to see more of these videos! 💖

So my feet are getting super swollen these days. As I’m writing this, it’s midnight and my feet and propped up against my bed’s headboard.

Had a nice brunch-lunch with @alexischeong today, and then we passed by the @novela_sg sale at Singpost Center. I ended up with 3 @tomfordbeauty lippies and another one from @diormakeup. It counts as a present to myself for getting this far in the pregnancy and not be crazy! 🤪 Had to stop myself from also getting an @anastasiabeverlyhills eyeshadow palette.

My Chanel Coco Mademoiselle edt is running out and I’m not sure if I wanna restock. It’s been my signature fragrance for the longest time ever and I wonder if it’s time for a change. Maybe our trip to France at the end of the year could be a good chance to pop by DFS again.

Anyway, watch my unboxing video of the lipsticks coming soon! Pretty photo of the day by @rachell.nbp.

Managed to squeeze in an everyday brow tutorial just before leaving for my gynae appointment!

Believe it or not, I use only one product! Video will be up on my YT channel soon, so keep a lookout on my IG stories for updates! 💖

Howdy! Like my new shades?

I finally caved and bought these from @owndays_sg. Have been popping in and out of their stores for the past couple of years but never got anything because I already had a pair of shades and didn’t see why I would *need* another. But then mine got damaged in Bali back in April, so it was time.

Today has been quite exciting! Our new rented apartment is almost completely put together, and most of our things from the old apartment are properly packed into their new places.

Since 10am, we’ve been to @tiongbahrubakery (woke up this morning with a strong craving for good croissants and they never disappoint), @hatcherycribs and @ikeasingapore. And this was a quick selfie on the way back home with our loot.

Some 🤰🏼 updates:
I’m currently 34 weeks now. Just found out that the baby can pop anytime from 37 weeks onwards, so this means we have just 3-4 weeks left to go to prepare for her arrival.
So, like, I went and bought diapers off @redmartcom because they were having a 50% off sale or something for @drypers_sg NB. LOL kiasu Singaporean max.
We haven’t decided on a crib, stroller and changing table yet. Any suggestions are welcomed!
Also: any mums wake up with sore and red palms in the morning when pregnant??? 👋🏻😐

What you focus on multiplies.

So:
What are you focusing on today? This week? This month? What actions are you taking to get to your mini short-term goals? What causes are you promoting, and are you focusing on the SOLUTION or on the PROBLEM?

Where do you want to be one year from now? Are you focused on that, or on how you’re not there yet?

Life is all about choices. What are yours? Make them well - even if it’s just the flavour of ice cream in your hand. 🍦🍧🍨 Photo by @mylondonfairytales.

I’m missing our days in the other parts of the world, during a time in our lives where things were less “adulty” and more spontaneous (read: fun). OK fine, we can still be as fun when the baby gets here but right now I’m just super sian because
- I can’t move around like I used to
- everything hurts
- I’m hungry all the time
- I’m breaking out like mad in lots of weird places
- my womb has a life of its own and moves all the time
- my gums and nose bleed often
- my clothes don’t fit
- I wake up every day with random muscle aches
- Now I also wake up to aching, red, bloodshot palms

I just don’t feel like me any more. Pregnancy isn’t fun. Pregnancy is ugh. I want the old me back!

Although right now our little one isn’t born yet, this amazing guy right here is already a great dad, holding the fort, providing all the support he can and loving me in all ways possible, in all my immobility.

I know Xav’s going to be a great dad too - I can already see it happening! So I know we’ll be in good hands. I can’t wait for our baby to be out and for them both to meet. It’s going to be amazing.

And OMG less than 2 months to go! 😱😱😱 *deep breathing*

On my way to a viewing (#roxannechiarealty), so thought I’d post sth quick.

Reminiscing the 90’s Tumblr times with this fun filter. Selfie taken on the day I went for a  super awesome @thalgo.beauty marine facial at @donnabeautysg. Looking presentable is always important to me, especially in my line of real estate work where I’m meeting clients and partners all the time. Whether we like it or not, we *ARE* judged based on first impressions. Heck, even we subconsciously do it without realising, more often than we think we do. “But I believe in being natural! Makeup hides the real me! I’m proud of who I am, acne, blemishes and all!” I hear ya, and I used to be the same. But I also learnt that if creating that intended first impression will work in your favour, it makes no sense to fight it. Accept that this is the way the human psyche works and go with the flow. It makes your life much easier and seamless! And really, it’s all about personal branding.

Home wifi is still not up, but I really love our new apartment and neighbourhood. Great food, peace and quiet, lots more nature and privacy. 💖👍🏻

I was stressed last night because everything seems to be happening these couple of days - and we’ll only get our home internet up and running in a week’s time.

But today my mood seems much better, especially after that short run to restock on my much-needed beauty supplies yesterday. Our oven is working, which means I might even bake today!

If only all the mess would clean and unpack itself so we can start prepping the nursery for our baby’s arrival. 😂 And I also just super need to blog! #sgbeautyblogger #makeuplover💄 
Anyhow, super loving this summer-filled photo by @boubouteatime!

One selfie for the day! I’m sick of staying home and doing all the packing, unpacking, cleaning, planning, home supplies shopping - on top of still working - so I’m taking today off and making a trip to Sephora. Desperately need to restock my @esteelauder Double Wear foundation, which has been my go-to ever since I got pregnant (oily face be gone). As you can see, my pores are huge but with the heat getting worse every day, there’s really nothing I can do about it. Also, I can’t be bothered. 😂 Eye makeup’s done with colours from different makeup palettes.

My best tip for blush is:
Avoid applying blush too high on cheekbones. The higher you go, the lighter has to be the shade. Darker blush shades make you look older too.

We have to test out the oven tonight, so I’m thinking of baking a cake. We have not baked in more than 3 years, so this is going to be fun!

Our apartment is also slowly taking shape, so we’re gonna be able to start inviting people over soon. I can’t wait either! 🤰🏼 update:
Currently 32 weeks big. I’m waking up with random muscle aches which go away by midday. My feet and ankles are swollen 24/7. I have run out of clothes to wear yet again. I can’t bend, I can’t touch my own feet. LOL. I can, however, put food on my tummy when sitting down!!! #achievementunlocked #cheapthrills

Look at that smug face from back in Jan. 🐟👋🏻 Also a reminder of how I looked when I still had ankles and skipping to my lou was still a possibility.

I can’t sleep because the baby is ferociously kicking away, so here I am on IG.

Spent the day yet again at my favourite place - the beach! Was still feeling slightly under the weather when I woke up this morning but I’d do anything for a good sesh on the shore any day.

Great catch up with @alexischeong! And also loving my lash extensions from @luxmierebeauty - they’re always so natural looking, so fluffy and so lightweight! 💖

How is your weekend going?
