Hydra3Ha™ Intensive Hydrating Serum

Serum always come first right after cleansing and toning. They are essential to help restore skin’s moisture level, leaving it youthful and hydrated. It also contains hyaluronic acid that can boost up to 60% hydration. Give it 1 to 1.5 min intervals before applying the next step.

How to use: Apply in the morning and evening on the entire face and neck, avoiding eye contour. Follow with SOTHYS Hydra3Ha™ Hydrating Gel-Cream.

Hydra3Ha™ Hydrating Gel-Cream

This Gel-Cream is then applied after the serum – it helps to retain and lock up the skin’s moisture level, leaving your skin hydrated throughout the day. Some may skip this step during their lazy days as the serum would very much have done the job too. But if you have really dehydrated skin, end it with this step to achieve a supple looking skin as it boosts 46% hydration after 3 hrs of application!

How to use: Apply in the morning and evening on entire face & neck after SOTHYS Hydra3Ha™ Intensive Hydrating Serum. Avoid eye contour area.

Hydra-smoothing Mask

Don’t be lazy! Apply masks 1- 2 times a week to help restore your skin’s elasticity while giving it an instant quench. Improvement of 14% on smoothing result even 1 hr after removal of mask.

How to use: Apply a layer on entire face & neck for 10 – 15 mins. Wipe or rinse off any excess product depending on skin type. Use once or twice per week.

P1050280

My favourite product is the hydrating serum as I can really feel my skin becoming softer to the touch and looking more radiant and dewy after application. Serum working its powers!

P1050251

Cherry Blossom & Lotus Escape

Scent plays an inevitable part in our everyday living. It is known that the scent you like exudes the type of personality you carry as well as it affects the emotional state of mind. The delicate aromatic essence of Cherry Blossom and Lotus will not only nourish your skin but will also put you in a joyful mood.

CLEO It Girl 2015!

SC1115_Online_CLEOitGirl_CoverPhoto_Melissa

Hey guys!

I’m really so humbled and surprised to be shortlisted as one of CLEO IT GIRL 2015′s Finalists!

This whole thing really came as an accidental discovery for me because Ash’s sister happened to text me about it just before the 2-day roadshow that CLEO held at Bugis Junction, and I did a very last-minute sign up for it! I had no hopes or expectations to be able to take the next step in this contest/selection to be CLEO’s very first It Girl. We had a quick makeover at the road show with Za Cosmetics, before proceeding to snap a few shots at the photo booth. I sure didn’t expect to get a call a few days later, informing that I had made it to be one of the finalists!

The reason why I took the plunge to join the CLEO It Girl contest is because to me, it’s now or never. I’m definitely far being from the youngest in the lot, and I had harboured this big ass, secret wish to appear in a magazine, in a bigger way, like a feature. It’s almost like a dream come true for me to have the photo shoot and enjoy a full page in one of my favourite female magazines.

Thank you so much for this opportunity, CLEO!

SC1115_Online_CLEOitGirl_Polaroid_Melissa

When I think of the most awesome It Girl, it has to be Chiara Ferragni. She’s beautiful, inspiring, stylish, confident, independent and and and …basically, every girl just wants to be her.

To be CLEO It Girl really means a lot to me, and to be recognised as an It Girl in any way, is a huge honour and I’m too grateful for words.

♥ Apply a darker shade on the eye crease using a smaller, rounder brush.
♥ Using an up and out motion, blend colour at the outer corner of the eye along the edge of where the brow bone begins.
♥ For a softer effect, blend the colours using soft circular motions along the outer crease.

How to dress for a Singapore internship interview!

How can you dress for a Singapore internship interview?

While many have an impression that it is acceptable to dress down or dress casually for an internship interview or feel that an internship is not as serious as a graduate career, you DO want to be taken seriously. So here are some fashion tips on how you can dress for an interview for internships in Singapore, without being too much of a stick in the mud.

Tips for GUYS

1

Would you simply put on a pair of jeans and t-shirt if you are going on a first date? Similarly, you should not turn up for your first meeting with your future employer in the same attire. With that said, there could be some leeway if you are interviewing for less formal positions. For example, when interviewing for the role of an intern in a café intern/barista, you are likely to be pardoned even with a casual long-sleeved shirt with a pair of dark-coloured jeans. Unless you want to leave gaping holes in the employer’s impression of you, do leave your pair of “vintage” jeans at home.

2

Too much denim may not be such a great idea as well. That’s really a lot of blue in a person! You get the hint.

If you are interviewing for an office job, put on a bespoke shirt, a fitting pair of timeless black pants, as well as business/dress shoes with laces. Do remember your belt, even if your pants fit snugly, unless they do not come with belt hoops.

3

If you are dressing to impress, especially if you are applying for an internship in a bank, accounting firm or MNC, donning a suit and tie will create a much lasting impression. Anyway, just a tip: it’s always better to overdress than underdress!

4

Special note 1: Always wear a watch to an interview

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Putting on a watch and being on time for your interview gives interviewers a subtle impression that you respect punctuality and the precious time of others.

6

Special note 2: Match the colours of your watch, shoe and belt.

The colours of your belt should match the colour of your shoes. The shiny buckle or leather of your belt should ideally match your watch too. Trust me  - it will look much better and give an overall more “put together” look!

7

Special note 3: Stick to the classics

While it is ok to reflect a savvy fashion sense on your interview attire, avoid an overkill and risk being mistaken as member of a boy-band (may not be a compliment). This means not choosing your neon coloured or extra skinny ties, or matching sneakers or loafers with your suit. In the meantime, the trend for a navy coloured suits are no doubt less conventional, yet perfectly acceptable for any interview.

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Special note 4: Wear socks PLEASE

As much as the #OOTDs are raving on Instagram, do not think about matching your interview shoes without socks or simply going with ankle socks for this interview. Remember, you are trying to dress professionally and not like a hipster!

Tips for GALS

Do not confuse dressing for an internship interview with a social event. It is nowhere close to dressing for a party or a date! Though your attire is also dependent on the position you are applying for, the general rule is avoid wearing anything revealing or fleshy (pun intended). Do you know that most of the people working in HR are women?

There is really no restriction on whether you should put on a one or two-piece dress. There is also no mandate in choosing between a pantsuit and a skirt-suit. However, putting on a pantsuit and a complementary coloured cardigan with your outfit could enhance your professional image and modesty.

Special note 1: Dress for the role
Dress in prints and colours which are not too bold/loud unless you are applying for an internship in a media/design/apparel company.

Special note 2: No boom shakalaka PLEASE

Avoid outlandish (skulls, unicorns etc.) or radical accessories or oversized statement necklaces, as this is not your #OOTD or #POTD shot to be shared on Instagram or Snapchat later. You may want to keep those at home to hashtag #flatlay instead.

Special note 3: Shoes

11

Office-appropriate shoes for your job/internship interview

Most ladies like me will have enough shoes for a different pair every day (in a week at least), but when it comes to interview shoes…it’s likely a trip to the mall as I hardly have any. A mid-heel closed-toe shoe is preferred, and it’s even harder to find one in your shoe cabinet that matches your attire!

Special note 4: Keep handbags at home (Branded ones are an even bigger faux pas!)

Do you really want to be judged by the brand that you carry? Instead it’s time to dust that briefcase/document sleeve and put it to good use!

All in all if you cannot remember the above tips, what you really want to do is to treat an internship Singapore interview just like any other full-time jobs that you are considering, and if you are uncertain, it is always better to be formally dressed than otherwise.

Follow me on my Instagram a/c @melissajaneferosha for outfit inspirations for all occasions!

9

A cheerful and smart casual outfit like the above is also possible in the office or for an interview, especially if you’re in for a creative role.

Jumpsuit from Purpur.

10

Add a pop of prints and colour into an otherwise simple, predictable outfit. Top from UnspokenLabel, pants from MDS Collections.

Wishing you the best of luck, everyone!
