Chewy Beauty

Chewy Beauty
I love Japanese sweets although I’m never quite sure exactly what I’m eating. This gum, Fuwarinka, claims to prevent premature skin ageing by including hyularonic acid and vitamin c.

Oh My God

Oh My God
The Looking Good For Jesus cosmetic range was pulled from stores in Singapore earlier this year following complaints that it trivialised religion.

See, guys, investing... Read More

But even if it does chip more than competitors (not least probably because it’s a chemical free... Read More

NYMag

NYMag
NYMag.com is one of my favourite places for snippets to share with y’all.
