Bring Joy to your Back this Christmas with OSIM uJolly!

I have a major weakness for two things in life: massage and aromatherapy. Both instantly put me in a state of relaxation, happiness and pure bliss. Thankfully, I can use them at the same time to send me straight to the land of good sleep and sweet dreams 😍

Unfortunately, I don’t get a lot of that pleasure these days! Hence, OSIM (a home-grown brand which I’ve supported since my late teens) has been giving me much relief and comfort via their massagers and quality products. In fact, I recall making a deal with my Dad to buy for our home the uSqueez Warm in exchange for good exam results – back then when I was just a student. That’s really a good number of years ago!

When we were introduced to OSIM‘s new full back massager, the uJolly, I was really keen to give it a try, being well aware about my bad posture and hence an aching back (due to long hours at the desk/on my laptop), strained shoulders and stiff neck. Believe it or not, I can hardly make time to go for massages even though I already have a package waiting for me to utilize! 😥

Daniel, Yixin and I made a trip down to the OSIM store at Raffles City to learn more about the uJolly and its functions. It seems like the versatile massager can cater to the needs of almost anyone from all walks of life – PMEBs, housewives, students, service staff, the elderly etc. It’s definitely great for me as it directly addresses my existing problems. In fact, after using it for about 2-3 weeks now, I’m beginning to see improvement in my posture and feel less pains and aches in my back and shoulders!

The stylish OSIM uJolly comes in two colours – Merry Red and Happy Yellow.

Daniel and Yixin feeling relaxed while they were being pampered by the uJolly.

I look like I’ve dozed off easily on the uJolly 💤

My satisfied expression says it all about the uJolly ☺

uJolly’s Chinese name 背乐乐 is so cute! Just had to act like the massager’s poster girl because I became one of its new fans 💘

Lucky us – we get to bring home an OSIM uJolly each and I chose the Happy Yellow! Perfect for my sofa at home which is chocolate-brown. My parents were so excited to unbox the uJolly when it arrived, so really…the desire to be massaged is truly universal 😆

I use the headrest pillow as a comfortable support for my head and neck when I relax on uJolly. It is easily removable for a more intense neck & shoulders massage as your entire back will be leaning against the backrest of the massager.

Does the headrest design remind you of a YSL handbag? 😂😂😂

You can easily customize your massage experience just the way you like it, with the touch of a button on the attached remote control.

You can select shoulders position (Hi / Lo) adjustments according to your height before an auto massage program starts.

Also, you get to personalize the massage the way you like it by choosing ‘Rolling & Tapping’ or ‘Press-Grip’ manual massage program.

So what’s so special about the uJolly compared to the other back massagers?

osim_ujolly_fb10-4_without-logo

V-Grip Technology (Exclusive to uJolly)

uJolly’s innovative Dual-Action V-Grip massage technology works along the contours of your body to provide a precise and human-like massage on your neck, shoulders (Shoulder Grip) and lumbar area (Lumbar Press). I love the deep tissue relief it provides by loosening my stiff and aching muscles.

Soothing full-back warm air

ujolly-back-massager-usp02-160818

Another feature I really appreciate. The soothing warm air in uJolly full-back massager envelops my entire back and prepares my body by loosening stiff muscles and joints, so that I can enjoy the maximum potential of the massage. The warmth from the massager makes me feel extra comfortable without feeling too hot, and helps me transit into a deeper state of relaxation.

 4 Specialized massage programs

To satisfy varying needs, the uJolly back massager comes with 4 thoughtfully designed auto massage programs for the common ‘problem areas’: Neck & Shoulders; Lumbar; Relax & Energize.

My favourite modes are the ‘Lumbar’ and ‘Relax’ as they really target the areas which needed attention. On ‘Relax’, I never fail to fall asleep right on that chair as it feels sooo good! ❤

One of the best things about the OSIM uJolly is that it literally converts any chair into a massage chair. It is portable, versatile and can conveniently fit onto most chairs, sofas, loungers and beds to provide a one-stop relief for neck, shoulders and back, wherever I am!

ujolly-back-massager-anywhere-at-home

The backrest is a little on the heavy side to give you a sturdy seat, but definitely light enough for you to move it around the house or office.

ujolly-back-massager-on-chair

Yes, even on that bean bag! 👍

For most of us who live in HDB flats and space is a constrain, the uJolly is definitely more space-saving than a full-sized massage chair! Together with the uSqueez Warm, my ordinary couch has instantly transformed into an actual “massage chair” or massage station, effortlessly! Good idea? 😄

Love that just one massager pleases everyone in the family, including Ash! We now depend on the uJolly for a massage fix when there’s no time to head to the spa. 🙌

Ash commented that the rolling movement felt very “organic”, almost like real human hands. He particularly enjoys the shoulder and neck rolling massage, that accurately hits all the aching spots on his back. So shiok! 😍😍

Colors of Beauty: Amber Beila CET Facial Review

Even though I’m often spotted with pretty heavy makeup (to of course, look presentable and photogenic for my shoots and events etc), I place a lot of emphasis too on skincare, facials and treatments that maintain and even better – enhance my complexion. I believe in working hard AND smart to look good, and never taking short-cuts to essential beauty regimes. For busy ladies like myself who have hectic lifestyles and tight schedules, a quality facial session can give our fatigued skin a much needed boost.

1

When Amber Beila (AB) approached me to review their facials, I was open to the idea of trying out new beauty parlours and their treatments. So I did some online research and was pleased that their mission and philosophy convey positive vibes and elements which I believe in myself. Amber Beila strives to bring out beauty in their customers, caring for both their physical and mental well-being, through Music, Essential Oils, Touch and Sight. A holistic approach towards the perfect ambience for pampering. Since 2012, AB has grown and established a strong presence in Malaysia’s Klang Valley. They have now expanded to Singapore, and set up a relatively new branch at One Raffles Place (especially convenient for the working crowd!)

While Amber Beila offers treatments for both the Face and Body, I was interested in their facials after checking out their extensive premium facial menu.

My first visit to AB (above), and I was instantly impressed by the parlour’s tasteful and beautiful decor, and relaxing ambience.

They also have a mini nail salon area for mani/pedi services!

Adore the decor! Details like this vintage bird cage and luxurious curtains 😍

Pevonia products that are used for my facial!

Consultation Room

Lovely lounge/waiting areas

Enjoying my welcome tea before commencing my treatment session 😁

Comfortable, cosy treatment rooms

And this one that I’m allocated to! Appreciate their attention to detail to make me feel as welcoming and at ease as possible 😄

How Amber Beila made me feel ✌

All ready for my facial! 😍

This is the CET & RET Therma-s machine, and I had tried the CET Face Treatment.
CET Technology is used to nourish and revitalize skin cells, resulting in a brighter, clearer and more radiant complexion.

After makeup removal! Photographed bare-faced and actually didn’t mind at that moment because I was so happy with the facial already! I felt so relaxed and the products used felt really good on my face.

My face after extraction (which is a little painful but still bearable because the process was short and swift). There is some redness but my face looks and feels a lot cleaner after AB’s founder, Fion, personally did the extraction for me! I’m always curious to see how much gunk was being removed from my pores – maybe I’ll find out one day! 😹 I can imagine that it’ll probably be quite horrifying! 😫

Can you guess how I was feeling with that mask on my face? I can only say that I fell asleep from all that pampering! 💤💤💤

I was really amazed that the redness went off significantly right after the mask was applied. My skin really looks much clearer with a more even tone, with a natural radiance even without any makeup on. Awesome! ✨💖

End of facial! Overall, it was a great experience and the results certainly showed. Thanks Amber Beila for this wonderful treat!

An overview of the entire facial in this mini clip 🙂

Quote “Melissa Jane” for a first trial experience on the above CET facial treatment at only $98! U.P. $468. Special facial packages are also available when you quote me!

And here’s their December’16 promotion if you want to pamper yourself in Amber Beila with their services! 🌟

Watch Them Till You Make It

Admittedly, I’m not a huge K-pop fan, and I know little about the various K-pop groups and their latest gigs. BUT I’m definitely fascinated with their fashion and beauty trends, especially their street style inspirations. Koreans are big about colours, patterns, textures and designs, trends are adopted from the west and reinterpreted into something they actually own. They also love their accessories and ensure that their makeup of the day (#motd) goes perfectly with their outfits.

These are just some of my favourite Korean street style lookbooks from Seoul Fashion Week earlier this year.

The K-pop idols also brought back the 90s trend by effortlessly rocking fashion accessories like tattoo chokers and bandanas.

Besides surfing fashion & entertainment online sites like Style Nanda, KoreaBoo and Yes Style for inspiration, video platforms like Viu are also content sources which I consult for the hottest and latest trends/ happenings. Because nothing says it better than videos, which are more interesting and engaging than stills. Get It Beauty is one such Korean variety show that I watch. The programme features Lee Honey, Kim Jung Min, Luna and Hwang Min Young as its main host. Every week, they invite professional makeup artists to introduce their unique style of makeup by using best selling beauty products. Quite like 女人我最大, it provides a platform for viewers to discover the best products recommended by celebrities and professional makeup artists.

I also check out K1 Entertainment News to gain insights on what the Korean celebrities wear to events, press conferences and bits and pieces of the entertainment scene, whenever I have some time to spare. If you love popular hit series Running Man, you know where to watch now!

Guess what I’m watching? I recently discovered this show on Viu while drama-switching. If you are fascinated by the Korean entertainment business, this will certainly attract your attention!

dsc_1706

It’s Entourage (2016), starring popular actor Seo Kang Joon and also Running Man cast, Lee Kwang Soo, and more! It is a dark comedy drama about life in the Korean entertainment industry, based on the American drama series of the same name. Not only does it show you the glamorous parties, culture and fashion, but it also shows you the hidden sides through the five main characters. As these five men try their best to survive and excel in the industry, you’ll also be able to see the true meaning of friendship and what really exists behind all the glitz and glamour; bright and flashy cameras.

entourage1

Definitely something I’d love to watch on a relaxing Saturday afternoon with my favourite chips and soda!

If you’re new to Viu, it’s a legal [not another PirateBay!] video streaming platform. It offers a wide variety of subbed content from Korean dramas, variety shows to Japanese and even Thai dramas! I’m excited to see more Asian content coming soon on Viu!

You can be streaming your favourite show on viu.com in the comfort of your home via Wifi on a PC, but you can also download to your mobile device and catch it on-the-go, offline…so no more eating into your data usage or have the insane need for WIFI all the time!

How about an extra incentive to watch your dramas or variety shows on Viu? (as if you need one!)

#ViuStarEntourage Contest

You get to even win prizes for watching your favourite dramas! How cool is winning a trip to anywhere in the world, and you can bring your own entourage of friends/family – simply by binge-watching on Viu! More details here.

If you would like to enjoy additional perks like unlimited downloads, you can also choose to sign up for Premium at just $5.98/mth. Yes it’s that affordable! Just imagine exchanging a cup of latte for a month’s worth of non-stop Asian entertainment.

I’m now off to watch, all the best in the contest! 

Love, everyday. Till next time!

Want A Dream Infinite Wardrobe? Your Answer is The New Style Theory!

clubhotelphoto3

Wish You Could Have An Infinite Wardrobe?

StyleTheory was created to offer us ladies unlimited access to a diverse designer wardrobe at a fixed, affordable monthly rate.

Select three items you love each time, wear and enjoy them as long as you want, return them when you’re done, and select three more. Unlimitedly. Laundry is on StyleTheory! *best news eva!* 🎉

Simply based on their belief that every woman should have the freedom to wear and experiment with every style and designer she adores without being constrained.

A simple theory: Unlimited Designer Clothing. One Monthly Cost.

logo

clubhotel2

I mean, what a great idea that is! 😁 The cost is a reasonable sum of $129 and you certainly have every opportunity and flexibility to make the most bang for your bucks. A piece of designer clothing already retails for at least a few hundred dollars and we usually don’t wear it more than a few times (especially if it’s a statement piece / or with strong, memorable prints). Nope, not for fashionistas!

With Style Theory, you no longer have to say

“I have nothing to wear, AGAIN!”

“My wardrobe is bursting!”

“I don’t know what to buy!”

“I have no time to shop :(”.

Those are but woes of the past with Style Theory, in my honest opinion. I have personally tried the subscription service for about 2 months, and enjoyed at least 3 boxes (that’s 9 pieces of apparels) to speak about my experience. The 4th box was specifically for Singapore Fashion Week (stay tuned for my next post!)

The Style Theory app was a joy to use, and navigation was pretty effortless and intuitive. I had fun choosing my preferred apparels – the interface was easy to browse and you can sort by occasions, styles, colours, designers, categories etc. When you first log into the app, there is also a simple exercise to identify your style (look out for those gorgeous flatlays/lookbooks) so that their virtual stylist could recommend 3 items for you! Don’t fancy any of those pre-selected pieces? You just have to swap for the one you want.

In a nutshell,

✓ Get 1,2,3.. or unlimited boxes in a month, all inclusive

✓ Select 3 Designer pieces worth up to $600 per piece, in a box

✓ Free shipping and dry cleaning included

✓ Monthly billing, cancel anytime

✓ Flat fee at only SGD 129 / month (less than 1 ZARA dress!)

The only trouble I have faced so far was that sometimes the pieces/sizes I desire are unavailable. However, StyleTheory is constantly bringing in new items (launching new arrivals every week!), so, it is easy to have a Wishlist with hundreds of items to select. Initially, the app was a little slow and crashed a few times, but the interface has since improved significantly and I no longer face any problems. Anyway, the more I use the service, the faster and more familiar I am with the app. I can now check out in a couple of minutes if I already have an idea of the outfit I need for the occasion in mind.

Some of my favourite labels like Keepsake The Label, Finders Keepers, C/MEO Collective and Sandro are on board too, so ecstatic about that! During the course of my subscription, I have also discovered new loves like Fabitoria, Equipment, Lie and Elliatt.

Disaya’s Botanical Satin Stitch 3/4 Sleeve Playsuit (quality is amazing and I love how wearable this is)

Finders Keepers the Label Playsuit (the prints, my fav!)

Equipment top x Fabitoria skirt (easily my fav set so far, so comfy too!)

There wouldn’t be a waiting list if the concept hasn’t proven to be attractive (also to accomodate no. of customers to wardrobe size ratio). The ST team is also constantly working on new partnerships and collaborations to bring in brands and products to expand their selection. For instance, they have recently introduced bags, accessories and shades to rent as well (as shown in the preview above). To all of you who have supported our giveaway (x The Club Hotel staycation) on Instagram, thank you for your support and congratulations to the winner! 💞✨

Gotta add that I love the fact that round-trip delivery is covered, in addition to the laundry (which can be quite a pain when it comes to dealing with various fabrics that require different cleaning methods). Style Theory uses Ninja Van, which has been efficient and reliable so far.

Being extra fashionable has never been so convenient and effortless for me!

You Can Have Everything To Wear
