Have not been sleeping much for the past 1 week because I'm packed with dinner gatherings this festive season. But okay, happy of course along with tiredness which led to a sulky face in the end. Whatever! Let me spam my photos from last week up to year end. Long picture post.

Went for manicure pedicure at First Lady since husband is working late. And I have to paint my toes to cover that ugly sight as usual. So they did a Christmas theme nails for me. Instead of the usual green and red for Christmas, they did a blue Christmas for me. Something special than usual. 
If you live in Woodlands area, go First Lady. Conveniently located at the overhead bridge beside Admiralty MRT.

Calling out to ALL West-side LADIES!!!! 

I'm a West-ender (previously for 30 years) and definitely a lazy woman to start with, esp known to my friends.

I realize just how much I have been missing (yet again) and also 'destroying' myself to look haggard and ugly. And that's when I started to look into the necessary to kick off my beauty regime. 
So ladies out there, don't be lazy and a no no for that 'hack-care' attitude like me. When something is within reach to make you glow from inside to outside, go for it. If there is something which you think you can't handle on your …
