We met up with founder and president of the Radical brand, Rachel, one half of a sister act behind Radical Skincare on a casual Saturday morning, who was in town specially to promote their family founded skincare range. Being a not-so-morning person, I was naturally late but thankfully still managed to make it in time before it Rachel began her talk.

This marks the second time I've done a food-tasting with OpenRice, and I couldn't pass up on the chance after how much fun I had from the first. Azucar (which means Sugar in spanish), is a quaint casual dining restobar tucked in a corner of the Beach Road stretch. A refurbished two storey shophouse, patrons can choose to dine either indoors or alfresco outdoors. They have a pretty sweet live band during the weekends, and a relatively extensive bar that's just perfect to hit for the happy hour period.
Step in and be enveloped by its quirky Mediterranean look; a amalgation of cool azure blues and greens accents, pulled together with rustic brick wall and parquet wood floor bases. Basked in warm ambient lighting, one can easily unwind from the hustle-and-bustle and enjoy the good food.

I first met Tian, who was helping out at her friend's store in Haji Lane, a warm and bubbly character whom I ended up chatting for quite abit. It was here that I came to know that she is one half of local girl group Ukulele Girls, who has been slowly but steadily making waves in the Singapore's music scene. Naturally, I could not miss the chance to pick her mind about their latest album, Love on the Equator.

Has Singapore found her own ukulele-toting Zee Avis? Perhaps even better.

How would you like to wear lusciousness on you?
That was exactly how I felt after trying Jimmy Choo's latest fragrance Exotic, and now you can. Attending the recent launch party at Paragon, my fellow bloggers enjoyed a lovely Sunday afternoon of pampering and learning more about the rich ingredients that attribute to the resulting rich scent notes.
Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo's Creative Director describes Exotic as: “Intoxicating and sexy, EXOTIC is meant for women with strong personalities and a hint of playfulness, women with irresistible magnetism who create surprise and amazement in everyone who crosses their path.”

Held at a rather isolated location amongst its industrial factory neighbours, The Backstage Cafe at first impression, seemed like a rather unseeming place for a product launch until we walked in. The Face Shop's Natural Sun Eco launch was a cheery juxtaposition to the cool, woody tones of the Backstage Cafe. We were served some great-tasting canapes and drinks as the event began.
I had been using The Face Shop's Sun AQ range previously, and found it to be pretty good although the cream was just a tad heavy on my easily-perspiration skin. What makes this difference from the AQ range is that it uses purified extract of sunflower sprouts, which provides NMF or Natural Moisturising Factor.
