I’ll be catching The Lion King tonight and it’s gonna be a a deja vu experience come true for me!

Quite a while ago, I vividly remember dreaming about watching The Lion King musical in a setting that resembles the Sands Theatres at Marina Bay Sands, I remember the actors dressed up in animal like costumes running down the aisle to interact with the audience – it was all too real! So when I received the invitation to watch the musical a few weeks back, I remarked to my bestie that it’s a deja vu coming true for me!

I’m really excited about walking the red carpet and catching the Lion King grand premiere, touted as the World’s #1 musical with my bestie tonight!

The Lion King runs for a month starting from today until 26 August 2018, tickets start, from $65 get your tickets on Sistic website here!

Hi Loves!

Do you face dry, sensitive or acne skin? When I was younger, I had mild acne skin and in addition to proper skincare routine, facials really helped me to balance the oils in my skin and regain healthy skin.

If you’re looking for a facial salon, you’ll be happy to know that recently I had the privilege to visit the new Sothys Premium Salon Boat Quay and experience Sothys Hydra 3HA, an intensively hydrating facial treatment which I really enjoyed!

Before I go into the details of the facial, let me share a bit about the Sothys brand. Sothys hails from Paris with over 70 years of history and innovation and they are currently a salon / boutique carried brand in Singapore. I have known about this brand for about 3-4 years and I personally love their Youth Serum – Detox.

Now let’s get to know more about the facial,
Hydra3Ha™ Intensive Treatment
Immerse in an intense hydration experience powered with triple hyaluronic acid. It restores, reactivates and regenerates your skin for an immediate long-lasting effect. Enjoy double serum and triple mask in a SINGLE treatment. Results are instant and lasting at any age.
3-Dimensional hydrating innovation

Now let’s dive into my personal experience with Sothys Hydra3Ha™ Intensive Treatment!

Review
All in all, Sothys Hydra 3HA hydrating facial at Sothys Premium Salon @ Boat Quay is a luxurious and effective hydrating facial session that takes away all the stress from our hectic city life. Starting with the soothing foot spa, to the intensive hydrating salon grade products and Sothys beautician’s magic touches (which includes a back massage for females) make this facial treatment a much welcome treat. My skin was definitely hydrated and glowing like never before after the treatment. If you’re working at/near Raffles Place or Boat Quay, the  Sothys Premium Salon is only a short walk from both areas!

Hi guys!

If you’ve read my last post or been updated with my social posts, you’d know that I am currently in the UK on holiday to visit my sister who’s studying here.

Well, in the midst of my holiday I want to share with you guys two Renovatio products that are high in anti-oxidants that I’ve been taking and using during this trip!

Before I delve into the products details and reviews, let’s talk about what anti-oxidants are and why they are good for our body.

What are Anti-Oxidants

In my layman term, anti-oxidants are good things that are mostly found in fresh fruits and vegetables, such as orange, tomatoes, berries and they are good in prevention of radicals (bad things) and hence particularly good in preventing cancer. However, this does not sound very scientific or impressive, so I am going to input excerpts from a website, verywell.com (thanks Google!):

Antioxidants are substances that may protect cells in your body from free radical damage that can occur from exposure to certain chemicals, smoking, pollution, radiation, and as a byproduct of normal metabolism. Dietary antioxidants include selenium, vitamin A and related carotenoids, vitamins C and E, plus various phytochemicals such as lycopene, lutein, and quercetin.

You can find these antioxidants in many different foods that you’re probably eating right now.

There are large amounts of antioxidants in fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains and smaller amounts of antioxidants in meats, poultry, and fish. Junk foods, such as highly processed fast foods tend to be much lower in antioxidants. No surprise.

Health Benefits

Consuming foods rich in antioxidants may be good for your heart health and may also help to lower your risk of infections and some forms of cancer.

As Dietary Supplement

Antioxidants are available as dietary supplements, but research doesn’t indicate that these supplements are beneficial. While research supports increasing your intake of dietary sources, the results are not as impressive when the individual antioxidants are extracted and studied alone.

Antioxidant extracts often show remarkable results in laboratory studies (test tubes, lab dishes and sometimes in lab animals), but when they’re used in human clinical trials, the results for disease and death prevention have been disappointing.

One exception was the National Eye Institute study of age-related eye disease, which suggested that a combination of antioxidants reduced the risk of developing advanced stages of age-related macular degeneration.

So according to verywell.com, antioxidant supplements have not been very remarkable on human clinical trials, but in a particular study it has provened to reduce the risk of developing aging of macular degeneration (i.e. Blindness).

Now, we have a clearer picture of Anti-oxidants and why they’re good for us, let me share my reviews of Renovatio’s supplement and face cream!

First off, it’s Renovatio’s  An Apple A Day Activated Phenolics Broad Spectrum Anti-Oxidant Whole Body Cellular Protection Supplement.

Renovatio touts this supplement to be “the world’s most potent dietary antioxidant tablet”.

Here’s more info. obtained from their official website:

100% natural broad spectrum antioxidant. The antioxidants you need on a daily basis to promote health and wellbeing in a convenient tablet form suitable for both adults and children.

Uniquely containing Activated Phenolicantioxidants that have been naturally extracted to be highly potent and easily absorbed by your body.

‘An Apple a Day’ Activated Phenolic antioxidants are derived from the healthiest of fruit – Apples (Malus domestica).

Apples are unique, in that out of the 1,755 different types of edible fruit, they contain the highest proportion of free phenolic antioxidants.

This may lend some truth to the proverb that has been passed down through both western and eastern culture – ‘An apple a day, keeps the doctor away‘.

Activated Phenolics are powerful antioxidants that neutralise a wide range of free radicals to protect your cells from damage and inflammation.

Studies have shown phenolic antioxidants contribute to the protection and recovery from degenerative, digestive and inflammatory conditions as well as contributing to weight loss and maintaining energy levels.

‘An Apple a Day’ is made in Australia from 100% Australian ingredients.

DIRECTIONS: Suitable for adults and children. Take one tablet each day or as directed by your health care professional.’

My Review

I have been taking this daily for about a week, I am loving this supplement and have been taking it to replace my multi-vitamin. Especially Vitamin B pill which is a type of vitamin that provides me with lots of healthy energy that keeps me going strong (in addition to coffee, haha) all day through without feeling tired. I realized after taking Renovatio’s An Apple A Day for a few days, I feel more energetic and less tired at the end of the day, So this supplement has been particularly helpful when we had long days while travelling in Paris recently.  I would definitely recommend this supplement to anyone who’s looking for a healthy way to boost your energy levels especially if you have long working hours, or generally feel dull and lethargic. Available on Renovatio.com for AUS$29.95 for 30 tablets (one month).

Secondly, it’s Renovatio’s APSKIN face cream. 

Transform your skin, boosting your skin’s glow and radiance.

Scientifically formulated from apples, nature’s best source of broad spectrum antioxidants.  Phenolic antioxidants from apples are the world’s most potent antioxidants.

APSKIN protects, regenerates and restores skin at the cellular level like no other face cream available. Use APSKIN to transform your skin, boosting your skin’s glow and radiance.

Nourishing your skin at the cellular level, APSKIN is formulated to protect elastin and collagen structures, leaving your skin transformed, glowing and ageless.

A luxurious, hydrating and restorative face cream that smooths and improves your complexion.

Noticeable results can be seen after using APSKIN for 3, especially in areas of discolouration, damage or stress*.

Use twice daily for the best results.

The power of eight antioxidants, extracted from a single source to maximise cellular synergistic affinity.

DIRECTIONS: Apply APSKIN over the face or neck. For women and men of all skin types and can be worn alone or under make up.

My Review

Generally I tend towards water based skincare for moisturizer as creams have the tendency to break me out as I have acne prone skin. However being in London and Paris in winter have been great to provide me with the right environment to test this product as my skin becomes dryer and requires a richer cream to keep my skin hydrated. I love the apple smell that comes with this cream (a first for me in my skincare regime history) and when I apply it at night it does keep my skin hydrated all through the next morning. I would recommend this product for fellow Singaporeans (or SEAsians in hot and humid weather) if you have dry skin or sleep in air-con all night and also if you’re somewhere with cold and dry weather (like Europe in winter). Available on Renovatio.com for AUD$28.50 for 100ml.

All in all, I must say both products were a welcomed surprised for me, I was taken by the premise of the brand capturing the healthy powers of Apple in supplement and skincare form and I am glad they did not disappoint. I look forward to Renovatio expanding the skincare brand APSKIN into a full range because I definitely think there’s a potential for a skincare brand and range rich in anti-oxidants.

Shoutout and thanks to Invigorate PR and Renovatio for sending the products over for review! All opinions are my own.

Typing this while waiting for our bus to head to Holy Trinity Brampton church for Sunday service on the last day of the year.

Am really thankful for all that has happened in 2017, highlights being the travels with my family; visiting the flower fields in Hokkaido with my parents in summer, Christmas Eve dinner with my relatives at my big sister’s house, spending Christmas and New Year’s with my second sister in London and taking a trip out to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower when I’m here.

Career wise, I count my blessings especially with each and every client and referral that trust me with their business. Am particularly expectant for a productive and fruitful business year in 2018 with clients and cases lining up for follow up when I’m back!

Spiritually, increasingly I find myself living the “Let go” life that Pastor Prince spoke heavily about this year. It’s really a lot easier said then done but I believe after 4 years I am finally closer to what it really is to live a life surrendered and dependent on my savior, protector and provider, Jesus Christ.

Year after year I grow in appreciation of friends that continue to keep in contact with knowing how busy everyone gets and how priorities shifts with changes in life. For all my friends who are reading this, know that every time you spend with me over a meal, message you send on WhatsApp, comment you leave on Instagram is not lost on me and very much appreciated.

I wrote in a previous message that I want to “Value Add” to people all around in my 2018 and to that I also will make my 2018 the most productive and fruitful year.
I hope that you’re enjoying the last day of 2017 and that 2018 will treat you well.

Love & God Bless,

Ena

P.S. Fingers crossed I get to see Pastor Nicky Gumbel for service later, have been listening to his Bible in One Year all year long !

I will build my life upon Your love

It is a firm foundation

I will put my trust in You alone

And I will not be shaken

I will build my life upon Your love

It is a firm foundation

I will put my trust in You alone

And I will not be shaken
