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!

One reason I love working in and visiting new launch showflats is the gorgeous ID. Guess where this one is at!

In the mood for some waffles/pancakes. It’s all I wanna eat right now!
#sundaymood☀️
The last 2 days have been crazy intense. 6am days ending at 7.30pm and 10pm, though not all was just for work. Staying in this morning but I’m ready for some action now.
What do you guys usually do on weekends?

New beauty haul (in like forever)!
I finally managed to find this blush from @narsissist at @sephorasg this afternoon after a work appointment.💖💖💖
Believe it or not, I’ve only been using ONE BLUSH for the past year or so! Do you know how hard it is to find a matte, non-chalky, pigmented coral/peach 🍑 blush that blends well and looks good on slightly tanned Asian skin?!?! And no, it’s not Orgasm!
I also *FINALLY* found a dark blue eyeshadow for my daily smoky eye look, also from Nars (not wearing it here). I have been looking for this shade for YEARS and finally bit the bullet.
All in my IG TV now dears. Go take a look at my unboxing and quick swatches!

Now that I’ve got your attention, here’s what I want you to think about today:
Being rich isn’t about how much money you’re making. It’s about how much money you can keep and grow.💵💵💵
If there was one thing I wish I knew earlier in life (OK 2 things), it would be to invest early and to have an effing social life. 😆

💄💋: I have figured that maybe the secret to having lip colour on my ever-so-sensitive lips is lip liner. This one’s from @kikomilano, still one of my favourite beauty brands ever!
Have an awesome weekend! What will you be up to?✨

Hi boss, can we do cold calling in here instead? 😂
As Jan comes to a close, and slowly so does #cny2019, I find many things to already be grateful for this year. Not only is our family expanding, I’m also happier (albeit more tired due to the little one forming inside of me). I’m taking steps to progress in my career as well - already having a handful of leads that are in close contact with me and it’s only the start of Feb! Compare this with the same number of leads I had the whole of last year, I’d say I am going places with this. I’m also working smarter and more strategically, in part meaning that I’m not working for/with people who don’t really want to work with me. When this happened to me last year, I suffered greatly (a huge lot emotionally) but it was a lesson that needed to be learnt!
This year I’m surer of myself, and I do this self-check at the end of every month to see that I’m still aligned with my life goals. I just wish I had more energy to do all the stuff I wanna do!
🤰🏼 PREGNANCY: Not sure if it’s fun, esp since I’m at the stage where I look in between beach-bod flat-abs hot and pregnant. 😂😂😂 I can’t get Gelish done, and neither can I colour my hair nor have a go at sashimi, saucisson, half boiled eggs and steak. Have I mentioned I LOVE SASHIMI?!!??!!!? 😩😭😩😭🍣🍣🍣 I wanted to pick up surfing and now I also can’t do that. Neither can I play VR games with my friends. Also, my baby is still too young for me to play with since I can’t feel her moving yet. BORING!! I can’t travel overseas from May till about Nov as well, but right now it’s too early to do so.
I know people say to enjoy the process.. Ha ha ha. Y’all kidding right? 😆

Hope you’re having a great mid-week break!

Today’s look and outfit for the #mattlamdivision #cny2019 get-together! The event was so much fun (all the action in IG stories), and I’m so glad to have been able to see everyone again! I had been laying low the past couple of months due to the pregnancy but now that I’m safely in the 2nd trimester, I can go out and be a normal person again!
Swipe to see my bump 🤰🏼- Week 14.
I also signed up for prenatal #Pilates classes today, and I SUPER CANNOT WAIT to get back into stretching and toning. Haven’t done it in MONTHS, feeling so frumpy and ewww. 😂

I’ve come a looooong way.
I used to be this miserable old cow, who believed (and had been taught to believe) that life was suffering, and that if you did not suffer while working towards your goals, you did not deserve the results. I believed that life was only about working your ass off, the whole 埋头苦干, 发奋图强 idea, that it was the only thing in life you could and had to be doing at all times (other than sleeping and eating).
What a whole load of f-ed up crap!!! Adults are so full of bullshit.
Now, I’m unlearning it all and it feels uncomfortable. They say when you feel uncomfortable is when you know you are breaking new ground. You are learning new things and philosophies about life, and it’s taking you to new places.
The person I am today believes that work needs to be done BUT you also need to find meaning in the process. NOT what results the work can give you, but the doing of the work itself regardless of the outcome. The old me would have huge problems really understanding this. But the now-me sees the light.
Life isn’t meant to be worrisome and full of suffering. Life is not so serious. Life is filled with colour and textures and smells and experiences. It is filled with laughter, faith, goodwill and mutual empathy.
And above all, we all deserve to be happy. 😃💖

Living in your dream house where you have space in the living room to twirl around after placing your couch and coffee table is possible - with proper planning and gradual step-by-step upgrading.
Start your home goal with me today. 🏡

So it’s my birthday tomorrow - which means practically the entire weekend will be spent celebrating the awesomeness of my life. 😆
Also, I’ve decided to finally get back on to FB on my personal page (will be posting something in there soon). This year is going to be amazing with renewed focus and motivation in my real estate career. I can’t wait!
My Kikki K planner also arrived this afternoon, and I can’t wait to fill it proper with the appointments I’ve got lined up in the coming weeks. You’d be surprised what a little focus on a few small things can make such big changes in your life and direction.
Already I have meetings this coming week, and another one scheduled for after #CNY.
Wanna find out what the property market is like this year? Looking to start your home journey? Begin with me. 👍🏻

Congrats to the @themonarchysg on your opening! I wasn’t able to come by yesterday for the launch (sadly) but I’m in love with the concept of sipping British cocktails with artwork of monarchs/icons - and your dapper suits from @kevinseahbespoke. 👏🏻

I had a legit huge scare just the other day: What will my life look like when I’m 70?
Would I have enough money to last me? Would I still need to work till I die? My CPF cannot cover my retirement, and I still do not own a property (a necessary asset) today. What will I be living on? Where will I be living in? Will I be on food stamps or rely on charity food donations?
I can’t save $50,000 a year by working my ass off now - what makes me think I can even retire? We’re not a socialist country, we don’t have fancy lifetime pension schemes.
I’m not just saying this to scare anyone (and I truly did freeze for a long moment there) but if you think about it... What are we doing today so that we can live awesome bat-shit crazy fun lives when we’re Grace and Frankie? Even if we will have enough money to buy a home later on, will we ✨ALSO✨ have money to pay for food, clothes, medication, transport and leisure???
Today we dress well, we have jobs, we have friends, we can eat well, take a Grab or coffee whenever we want. But this stage of our lives doesn’t last. What happens to us when it’s all done and dusted off? What happens then? 😩

Porch porch porch porch porch!

Uh huh, that’s what came to mind the moment I saw this shot from @wendymaurodesign.

In Sg, it’s usually too hot to enjoy the balcony area, even if it’s facing the north or south. Our favourite time to hang out there is either
1. the early mornings, 
2. around 9-10am on Sundays for a little cosy alfresco brunch,
3. in the evenings while the sun sets and the evening breeze comes along (home made alfresco dinner!!! 🥘)
4. and also really late at night when all is quiet and cool (and the stars come out to play). Does your apartment have a balcony, and how do you enjoy it?

FACT: For most home buyers, the first home you buy is never the dream home you’ll own (and it should never be so). Instead, it is the property that will put you in a better position to one day owning your dream home.
Take the first right step, and your home planning will go much smoother than you think. 😊
Loving this gorgeous beach home 🌊by @_sare_xo. Have a happy Sunday!!!
