ghd V Gold Max Kit


I’ve always been a fan of ghd and rely on them to curl my hair and to fix my fringe. The things I love about ghd is that it is compact, reliable, beautifully defined and most importantly does the job in curling and straightening as required.


Recently, ghd released the ghd V gold max kit that is perfect for those who are looking to upgrade their ghd or are looking to trial ghd for the first time. It comes with everything you need, their signature paddle brush, hair clips and heat protectant spray.


Love the beautiful matte black finish.


Remember to always protect your hair before any type of heat styling. Spritz away with the heat protect spray.


I love the wider plate as it makes styling WAY quicker and easier for people with longer hair like me. Despite the wider plate, it is still easy on fringe styling. I took this with me on my holiday and styled my hair everyday because it was quick, easy and delivers the most beautiful curls one can ever wish for. Not to mention my favourite hair salon also swear by them.


This was a rushed job in less than 10 minutes, relaxed curls.

Nose enhancement with Emervel

Last week, I had the great opportunity to have a little rendezvous with Dr Herve Raspaldo (from Cannes) and Dr Simone Doreian (Aesthetic Physician MBBS (Hons.) FRACGP DRANZCOG CPSA base in Melbourne), both highly reputable doctors in their field with a string of high profile clientèle. I’ve been introduced to both doctors years back in separate occasions and who knew in such a small world that Dr Herve is actually Dr Simone’s mentor.

With Emervel’s (parent company – Galderma) launch in Australia; I was excited to trial this range of scientifically advanced and clinically proven hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. As we all know by now, fillers is great to add volume to areas that requires enhancement, be it facial lines, volume loss or contouring of face. Personally, since my last dermal filler on my nose (2011), I’ve been itching for an enhancement again.

After a consultation and discussion with Dr Simone, we’ve decided to use Emervel Deep and Emervel Classic (both soft dermal filler designed to customise and provide long-lasting results) on my nose bridge and nose to give it the much needed lift that it requires.

Emervel review

Immediate “Before” (left) and “After” (right) 

Utilizing Dr Herve’s signature technique – “Eiffel Tower” to inject the filler into the base of the nostril; I’ve experience a much more pleasant experience this time and minimal discomfort, not to mention minimal downtime as well. The needle used for this procedure is also very tiny leaving skin with close to no obvious skin tissue damage.

Needless to say, I am super happy with the subtle enhancement that made such a massive improvement to my overall feature being more lifted and defined whilst looking natural at the same time.

Shiseido Ma Cherie

I shall start a series of mini beauty reviews as more importantly these are memo to myself so I can remember what to shop when I am back in Japan next. In my recent trip to Japan, I chanced upon the Shiseido Ma Cherie hair care range which is a drug store collection. You can almost find them in any drug store/beauty store; however I’ve noticed not all of them stock the full collection.

After almost a month of trialling them, I have to say I am obsessed with this collection as not only the packaging is pretty in pink but the scent is such a feminine fruity scent. They do exactly what it promises and most importantly they are super lightweight and doesn’t feel like you’ve got hair product in the hair at all.

I honestly love all of them and from memory they don’t cost much either. If I were to pick, I’d say the hair fragrance is my favourite of the lot. But they are all equally amazing to me and I am definitely restocking them when I am in Japan next!


Best selling Dior beauty products in China

I love it when I get “insider” reports to see what are the latest and best selling beauty products from brands. Beauty product rankings are huge in SE Asia and product rankings are how consumers decide to purchase a product. Surely if everyone is buying it, it has to be good right?

So recently, Dior shared with me their best selling beauty products in China and surprisingly their fragrance department is going real strong:

  1. Capture Totale Dreamskin
  2. Dior Addict Lip Glow Balm
  3. Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet
  4. J’adore Eau de Parfum
  5. Capture Totale Serum
  6. Capture Totale Fluide Foundation

dior Capture-Totale

Out of the six products, I’ve tried half of it except for the Capture Totale skincare range. Looks like it is high time I need to delve into the Capture Totale range as it looks like everyone are obsessed with it!

Have you tried any of the best selling beauty products?

Pink Salt Water Lake at Port Melbourne

Every year during the warmer months, the salt lake in Westgate Park, Port Melbourne turns to a glorious shade of pink.

This natural phenomenon is quite unique as there are only a few lakes in the world that turns to this pretty shade of pink. But don’t let the pretty colours fool you, it was quite smelly when you come close to the lake.


It should still be around until mid April, so be sure to go check it out yourself.

Dior Prestige White Collection

Dior recently released some new skincare products addition to their infamous Dior Prestige White collection. This collection focuses in delivering both brightening and anti-ageing benefits to women 30 and above.

As we all know, one of the biggest sign of ageing is not just lines/wrinkles but also the overall appearance dullness of the skin. Skin that looks lackluster, skin that looks “tired” and this can all be rectified and prevented with prolong use of Dior Prestige White skincare range.

Today, I will be reviewing the serum aka Dior Prestige White Collection Le Nectar Blanc and the creme aka Dior Prestige White Collection La Creme Eclaircissante. Both products features the key ingredient Rose de Granville (anti ageing) with the unique brightening properties of White Rose. A rare alchemy for skin’s youthfulness and radiance.

le nactar blanc review

Dior Prestige White Collection Le Nectar Blanc – Is a highly concentrated serum that is specifically formulated for delicate Asian skin. Having said that, it can be used for all skin type. Texture wise, this milky white serum is waterly light and once applied onto skin it transforms into a silky and luminous finish. Designed to deeply penetrate and to revitalize skin, this serum is good for both day and night use to help target visible dark spots.

Dior Prestige White Collection La Creme Eclaircissante – This creme (moisturiser) is designed as a following up step after the serum and again, perfect for day and night use. Despite the moisturiser coming in a luxurious jar packaging, it is surprisingly lightweight and the texture melts away as soon as it is massaged into my skin.

dior prestige white moisturiser

I really love the concept of moisturising, protecting AND also brightening the skin appearance all at once. Over time, both the serum and moisturiser combo is able to illuminate dull skin, smooth skin surfaces and nourishes skin to prevent premature aging and slow down signs of ageing. Despite me hitting the big 30 last year, I still suffer from acne (how annoying!) and have a growing concern with ageing; so this skincare regime fits perfectly into my skin care needs.

One side note though, they will be pretty hard to bring along for travelling so perhaps decanter is the best way to go if you want to bring them with you on holidays.

Dior Prestige White Collection Le Nectar Blanc RRP AUD$ 460
Dior Prestige White Collection La Creme Eclaircissante (refillable) RRP AUD$ 460
Both products are available on Dior counters now
