Good Job, Salon De Choix! Thank you!

The end of March marks my 1.5 years, of being so lucky to have Salon De Choix as my hair salon sponsor. I am happy to have them as one of my sponsors, and I am definitely more than happy to share about them to my friends/readers/followers through my various social media networks! Here's to many more months to come! ^_^

The team working in Salon De Choix is not only professional with many years of experience under their belt, but the stylists there are all very friendly and easy to talk to. The stylists (For example, my stylist Chester),  will listen to your ideas (no matter how quirky they can be), and offer their suggestions along the way. I find this is a very important aspect of the pre-hair makeover session.

In my case, as much as I would love to have wild colors for my hair, Chester always helps to put me back on track when I have those 'wild colors lemmings' moments... As he knows that wild colors will not be suitable for my line of work and I think he knows I will regret after a week or two. Hahahaha! To be honest, I am secretly thankful for Chester whenever he steers me back to a sane path, and also for always giving me a hair color that is of a light shade YET of an acceptable shade that is suitable for a corporate environment.

So, this was my latest hair makeover session at Salon De Choix!

This was my hair when I stepped into the salon.
Black roots showing, dry frizzy ends. 
My hair was shouting out for attention!

As usual, Chester did a quick consultation session with me first. 
I told him to "play with my hair.... Give me a fun color".
He was ok with it, but he asked me if it will be ok for my job.
YOU SEE.... He helped me to THINK! Super grateful to him!
Reluctantly, I settled for a light brown base color, and copper highlights.
 May not be as fun, but it was definitely a logical choice of colors! :p

This is the color dye to give a nice copper shade to my
highlighted hair area. No it is not that orange-gy.

The highlighted hair areas were then being dyed,
and then kept in place with the aluminum foil pieces.

Once the highlighting work was done, it was followed by
applying the base color dye to the remaining sections of my hair.

A plastic film sheet was placed on my head to "set" the colors, 
as well as to keep my hair in place.
Afterwhich, the waiting game starts...

So while waiting to have the color dye to be absorbed
into my hair, I took selfies such as this pic...

And happily eating my cup noodles and drinking my Cola
soft drink. All these are complimentary for all
Salon De Choix's guests!

Once the plastic film sheet was taken off, it was time to wash off the color dye. I love being at the washing area at Salon De Choix... For that means I can lie on their electronic massage chair and have my body massaged while my hair is being washed. One of my favorite moments of having a hair makeover at Salon De Choix! Haha!

Before my post-haircolor treatment, I was treated to
a relaxing scalp treatment session.

The two mint and rose treatment solution was mixed in
a mixing bowl. A small flat brush was dipped into the mixing
bowl of liquid and then applied directly onto my scalp.

The two scalp treatment oil liquid helps in promoting better scalp conditions such as balancing the pH level of the scalp, promote hair growth, and relieve inflammation or scalp irritation with its cooling and relaxing effect. It felt very soothing and relaxing when this was applied onto my scalp as I could feel and smell the minty properties.
This followed by a relaxing scalp massage which was... extremely relaxing, totally welcoming by the busy me!

Next, it was the hair treatment session, using Loreal Professional
products. Chester selected the 'Enhancing Ritual',
since I have just colored my hair.

 photo DSC03357_.jpg

The concentrated Pixelist booster and the Masque Chroma Riche
cream were mixed in a mixing bowl and applied onto my hair.

Hair steaming in progress...

The next step is the application of the Loreal Professional's
Absolut Repair cellular repairing masque.
This hair mask leaves hair stronger, more supple, smooth and shiny.
 photo DSC03361_.jpg

Leave it on for 15~20 minutes, and have hair wrapped up
in the plastic film sheet to allow the hair to absorb all
the nutritional benefits of the oil.

Once done, Chester did a hair trim for me. 
Since he knows that I am planning to keep my hair to a longer length, he didn't trim much of my length. Instead, he helped to trim my hair to make it more layered
so that it will not look too thick. And finally, it was Blow and Style time! :)

I can't believe how smooth my hair was after the treatment! photo photo41_.jpg

The copper highlights are evident in the below 2 pictures...

I love how Chester put in thoughts for me to have a bright copper shade that is more obvious, only when I "lift" up my hair layers. He told me, at least if I were to go for meetings, etc... I can even tie up my hair and the highlights will not be obvious. 

 photo DSC03375_.jpg

 photo DSC03376_.jpg

As you can see, the copper highlights are not obvious when 
the hair is fully let down. So for corporate office people,
this technique is suitable for YOU! Do get Chester to do this
for you when you book your hair appointment with him, ok?

 photo DSC03364_.jpg

I requested them to blow+style my hair straight, 
as I liked how smooth and sleek my hair was.
Just like the hair in a hair shampoo advertisement! Haha!

Get Rewarded for Your Influence with influr!

Hope it has been a "Terrific Thursday" for all of you. And if it has not been all smooth-sailing for this week so far, just know that it is Friday tomorrow, and the WEEKEND is just around the corner! What better time to share with you some exciting news related to REST & DINE, SOCIAL MEDIA & REWARDS, and BEAUTY! Read on, my dear readers... For who knows, you may get influenced by me, or be an influence to others! ;)

#1 REST & DINE at Singapore Marriott Hotel

 photo SMH_zps0441798c.jpg 

Opened in 1995, the award-winning Singapore Marriott Hotel, has since gone through a major SGD35 million refurbishment in 2012. In addition, refurbishment works were done for their Grand Ballroom in 2014. With all these, the hotel offers a new level of luxury to both business and leisure travellers from around the world. 

The Singapore Marriott Hotel is strategically and conveniently
 located along Orchard Road, Singapore's shopping belt.
(Check out image below for surrounding malls).

Nicely decorated and cosy city-view rooms for the hotel guests.
Be it for the global travellers or the locals who are on a staycation getaway.
 photo SMH03_zpsefe148a5.jpg

 There are even some pool terrace rooms such as these.
Getting out of your room simply takes you straight to the hotel's swimming pool on the 5th level.

Imagine lazing in one of the pavilions by the hotel's pool... 
 photo SMH06_zps815148e5.jpg

I can envision myself doing that for a lazy afternoon, along a book
in hand and a chilled cocktail drink, during a staycation getaway
at the Singapore Marriott Hotel! :p

The reason why I was at the Singapore Marriott Hotel was to attend an event by three companies, namely Singapore Marriott Hotel, Laneige and influr. As I arrived at the hotel's Pool Terrace Pavilion, I could imagine the pavilion to be used not only for company events, but for wedding solemnization ceremonies as well. With a turnout that evening, estimated to be about 70 people or so, the Pool Terrace Pavilion's warmly-lit lights and cooling breeze from the rotating ceiling fans were perfectly suitable to hold the event which I attended. In addition, delicious bite-sized tapas and drinks were served by the professional restaurant servers. To sum it up, it was a great evening at the Pool Terrace Pavilion.

When dusk arrived, it became more evident how the chic alfresco restaurant, Pool Grill, is the perfect place to go for a romantic dinner date! Just check out the photos below and you know why! :)

#2 - Social Media and Rewards through: influr

It would be nice to dine in one of the various F&B establishments at Singapore Marriott Hotel. It would be great as well, if one gets treated to a meal or two and without the need to pay, isn't it? Better yet, to have a full load of rewarding treats that one can choose from a redemption list. That's where influr comes in... To reward you

 photo DSC03459__zpsfbb514e2.jpg

I would consider myself to be a form of influence to my friends and readers/followers in real life, as well as through my various social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. This is why I put up content on my blog and the above-mentioned social media sites so as to share information. Afterall, "Sharing is Caring". These content can be in the form of new products in the market or upcoming events, or even my product/service reviews for restaurant, aesthetic treatments, manicure, hair salon, etc.

I Blog, Tweet and Instagram!

With influr, it helps to measure my influential abilities using their unique algorithms, whenever I post content on my social media sites. The more reactions that derived from the content posted, it simply means that I have a higher influence level. And if you are wondering that if you have only 100 followers versus someone who has 1000 followers, you may not be that influential to that person, but you are wrong. This is because influr does not measure the number of followers. Instead, it focuses on your ability to create content which impacts your community through the number of 'Likes' and comments you have.

 photo DSC03461__zps391572bc.jpg

Hence, get rewarded for being influential through influr's Treats program! The more reactions you receive from your content posted on your social networks, you get to earn rewards to redeem from a whole range of brands and establishments. 

For example, if you are keen to dine at the Singapore Marriott Hotel,
here's what in for you!
 photo influr02_zpsc24f79d0.jpg

In addition, upon signing up for an account at influr, and linking your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, the site will then calculate your influence and have you to be in one of the four categories of Influencers - Elite, Respected, Popular and Basic. Your influence level is accumulated from the past 3 months across your social networks and which will have you move up or down the 'rankings'. If you are at the top, as an Elite Influencer, you will require less reward$ to redeem an item, as per compared to a Basic Influencer. Different levels have different types of treats too.

And your high social influence power may have you to be selected to become a Brand Advocate for various brand campaigns, in collaboration with influr's many client partners!

I hope you understand how influr works...
And how simple it is to be rewarded for simply being... Influential!~

#3 Beauty by Laneige

I have been a fan of the skincare products from Laneige (I am using it, just that I didn't blog about it, yet). I have always wanted to try the BB Cushion, a skincare makeup product from Laneige, which offers SPF50+ PA+++ for our skin's protection against harmful rays from the Sun. Boy I was glad to have received  a full-sized BB Cushion set, which Laneige Singapore had generously gifted the female blogger attendees with. Each set of the BB Cushion also comes with an additional refill kit, should you finish using it (to my delight!).


 photo laneige02_zps1f5fab2d.jpg

The BB Cushion comes in 4 different tones to suit various skin tones. What is more amazing is the latest BB Cushion by Laneige comes with 6-in-1 benefits!!! Not only it brightens and moisturizes your skin, it also has the UV protection and cooling effect upon application. I liked how it gives my skin the coverage required for a natural, dewy look, without any sticky or oily feel which some BB cream products have. What I liked it most is that it is water resistant, hence I need not worry that my foundation may fade due to perspiration or water. Certainly a product for me to use when I am heading outdoors such as cycling (Been doing that as of recent) or simply a walk along Singapore streets!

And if you are using the BB Cushion for the first time like me,
here's the instructions for the application.
 photo laneige03_zpsc8a68c4a.jpg

I am glad to have the Laneige's BB Cushion.
It is an amazing product, otherwise why would 1 piece be sold every 10 seconds globally?
*wink wink*

I shall end my post here. Have a good weekend ahead!
Thanks to influr, Singapore Marriott Hotel and Laneige for the wonderful evening and hospitality!
