What Happened: International Shoppping Experience with ShopandBox, Wheelock WAmazing Championship Race 2016, Imaginative Nails, Protected Feet with United Nails Supply, Raffles City Craftholic Christmas 2016 & Singapore’s First-Ever Yuzu Bath at Yunomori Onsen & Spa


Back in November, I was invited to shop the world with ShopandBox during a cosy event that allowed me to understand more about how they work and the launch of their very own app! 

ShopandBox is an established global peer-to-peer personal shopping and shipping service with over 100 personal shoppers (Boxers) in 27 countries and counting!

The event was held at an apartment full of products from various countries, with interesting snacks to fascinating beverages to hipster fashionable product to beauty products!

Wheelock WAmazing Championship Race 2016

After the first race of WAmazing Race, it was the Championship Race with more tenants participating, it was an intense series of activities/morning workout! 

With new tenants like Vivre Active, Astalift, O'Coffee Club, Seed Heritage, Gong Cha, Etude House and Gene by Grinrch, we had to do a series of challenges that really took a lot of energy and effort! Overall, it was a really fun, adrenaline-packed morning and my team won!

And to end off the whole event, we had a lovely meal at Picnic with all the participants of WAmazing Race and we did what all social influencers do, we ordered all that we could and did a big fat food flatlay!

Imaginative Nails, Protected Feet with United Nails Supply

I was invited to celebrate the official distributorship of CND Shellac, from top US nail brand CND (featured at countless shows at New York Fashion week) and Allpresan PRO Footcare (from German brand Allpresan with the best experts in Dermatology, Diabetology and Podiatry), and while we were indulging in canapés and champagne, Pat Lim, Founder of UNS, shared with us the latest nail technology to hit Singapore’s shores and weightless feet care products perfect for our climate. 

Unlike traditional creams and ointments, the patented, breathable BarriorExpert® Foam Cream Technology creates a fine, protective mesh on the skin after application, which protects the skin against external factors and strengthens the skin barrier. It’s a perfect match with Singapore’s humid weather and for heels-loving fashionistas – it can be evenly distributed without friction while providing superior moisturising benefits.

She also shared with us about the CND 8-patent SHELLAC system that does not require any buffing of our nail bed and showed us how it offers the same benefits as the usual gel polish – high-performance wear, with a mirror shine!

I think I'm hooked to this brand of Gel polish now... I was staring at how perfect my manicure looked every day until I had to remove it and was very impressed with how easily it was to remove it compared to the many other brands I've tried!

Raffles City Singapore X Craftholic Christmas 2016

I was invited to the launch of a whimsical Christmas happening at Raffles City Singapore with Craftholic!

During the event, we got up close and personal with Ms Ikuko Yamamoto, the Founder/Designer of Craftholic, who flew in specially from Japan!

We were also entertained by the characters from Craftholic in a cute dance performance and indulged our creativity with a range of Craftholic-related activities!

I made a pop-up Christmas card with the help of the experts in making pop-up cards and got treated to a lovely Earl Grey cake!

Singapore’s First-Ever Yuzu Bath at Yunomori Onsen & Spa

I was back at Yunomori Onsen & Spa again, this time round it is for their Yuzu Bath launch. I got to enjoy the Yuzu bath and special Yuzu dishes made for this period!

If you've been to Yunomori Onsen & Spa before, rejoice because their 1-for-1 happy hour promotion is back by popular demand from 28 November till 31 December 2016. Experience the first authentic Japanese Onsen in Singapore at only $19+ per pax (U.P. $38+)! The onsen entry pass entitles you the access to different variations of baths and other facilities such as sauna, steam bath and lounge. Promotion is valid from Monday to Wednesday, 7pm – 11pm.

So, this means that not only do you get to enjoy the onsen at a promotional price, you get to eat their Yuzu dishes too! My favourite dishes are the Yuzu Udon ($9.80+) and Yuzu Sorbet ($4.50+), these are my must-try recommendation!

But the promotion doesn't just end there! Yunomori Onsen & Spa is also offering weekday special massage promotions, which will be available until 31st December, from Mondays to Thursdays (10am-6pm): 

60-minute Thai Massage @ S$138 for 2 pax (UP: S$176)

And that brings me to the end of Novemeber and all that happened during this month!
