The Little Link: Men Looking Smart In Their Ties, Bowties And Cufflinks

Friday, July 28, 2017


Have you ever gone shopping for a man – or even try to get your man to go shopping?

It is one of the most tedious tasks ever because our male counterparts are exceptionally critical when it comes to purchasing a product for themselves. The design has got to be on point. The colour has to be precise. The quality has to be assured. The price has to be "reasonable".

So when I had to get my (now) husband to find a new pair of tie and cufflink for our wedding, and bowties for his groomsmen ... it was a nightmare!

Fortunately I was armed with The Little Link, an online store focused on selling men's accessories that add the finishing touches to their smart-looking attire. Read on for more.

Haddrell's of Cambridge Manuka Honey: From Hive To Table, From Our Family To Yours

Tuesday, July 25, 2017


I have long been told that Manuka honey is an acquired taste. I have tried several brands and never finding one that pleased my tastebuds – but that was before I got introduced to Haddrell's of Cambridge.

It was sweet and light on the palate, without the usual distinctive floral aftertaste that most Manuka honey had. I did a double take on my glass of honey tea, and popped the big question: "Are you sure that this is Manuka honey? It tastes nothing like the ones that I've tried before!"

Read on to find out more about this renowned honey brand from New Zealand, with its honey products that are only exclusively available at Nature's Farm outlets in Singapore.

| BEST SELLING Signature Oxygen Deep Cleansing Facial Treatment

Goggles on!

Their signature face treatment is an oxygen facial that delivers a mixture of hyperbaric oxygen (ie. pure oxygen at a high pressure) and anti-aging serum in a speed of 200m/s spray with 50-80 micro-metre tiny granules through an airbrush into the face.

The mixture penetrates the epidermis into the deep dermis layer, and cleans the follicles and sebaceous glands completely. It is almost as though someone is using a tiny power washer to pump oxygen and moisturiser into the skin!

Hyperbaric oxygen to flush out all the nasty matters in my pores!

As opposed to traditional facial treatments, which require a 12-hour waiting period before the application of any makeup, the Signature Oxygen Deep Cleansing Facial Treatment by J Studios permits the use of cosmetic products right after your session.

The facial treatment helps to give the skin a smooth and moisturised surface, thus the process of applying makeup after the facial becomes a complete breeze!
