In New York, concrete jungles where dreams are made

I just caught the latest episode of Glee Season 2.

I. Am. Blown. Away.

Glee has to be the best series-musical ever made yet. Those of you who finds it too cheesy, I don't care what you think about it anyway!


Should I???? I'm sooooo tempted... green or pink?!

You can get it here at KATE SPADE for USD$25.

Movie Trailer: Burlesque

Ever since she was out of that Mickey Mouse club, I've been waiting for this to happen. Xtina stars in her first movie/musical (don't understand why they complicate things) together with Cher (omg gag!) in this musical movie "Burlesque".

We know Xtina can definitely sing and when she showed us how dirrrrrrty she can get, we knew she can dance from a distance. But the question is, can she ACT?

BVLGARI for a good cause

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester lends her star power support to a worthy cause, as BVLGARI introduces a specially-designed silver and ceramic ring in October in support of the company’s 2010-2011 pledged commitment of $7.4 million to support quality education for the world’s neediest children.

The new ring will also feature the Save the Children logo engraved on the inside. The ring will be sold through 2011 in BVLGARI stores worldwide, for SGD$670 each, of which SGD$130 will be donated to Save the Children.

Please help the children for they are our future and they need all the help they can get. You might be their pot of gold on the other side of the rainbow.

Carah Faye, you were right to leave Shiny Toy Guns.

In my veins

I was once told that there's no unloving someone.
We merely come to terms that some things are not meant to be.

Track: In my veins by Andrew Belle

I can run away and leave you anytime

Song of the moment: Oh my God by Cults (they're so.. good.. soooo goood...)

Oh my god, I'm stuck in exactly the same position
I'm so tired of sitting around here with my boring life
Wishing I could find another name to go by
Late at night I'm dreaming about a time where I could change my side

Please don't tell me you know the rules to go by
I can run away and leave you anytime
Please don't tell me you know the plans for my life
I can run away and leave you here to stay inside dreaming

I'm so tired of all these honest decisions
Oh my god, I'm ready to walk right out that door
I never wanted a single thing for my life
All I wanted was to know that I have never wasted my time

Please don't tell me you know the rules to go by
I can run away and leave you anytime
Please don't tell me you know the plans for my life
I can run away and leave you here to stay inside dreaming

Oh my god, I'm stuck in the same lame tradition
I'm so tired of thinking about the things that I have been missing
I never wanted a single thing for my life
All I wanted was to know that I have never wasted my time

Please don't tell me you know the rules to go by
I can run away and leave you anytime
Please don't tell me you know the plans for my life
I can run away and leave you here to stay inside dreaming

What is Sexy?

<a href="" target="_new" title="FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2010!">Video: FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2010!</a>

If you bothered to finish watching this video from Xin MSN, you'll find out what is Andrea Fonseka's advice to all you growing girls on how to be sexy: Fake sexiness long enough and you'll make it.

Haha, bet you girls didn't realize it was all that hard, huh?

So... what is sexy?

Well, I'm not saying Andrea Fonseka's tip is wrong. It may help some girls eventually get there but you know honestly, nobody described Sexiness as well as Sophia Loren did:

"I think the quality of sexiness comes from within. It is something that is in you or it isn't and it really doesn't have much to do with breasts or thighs or the pout of your lips."

Simply, Sexiness comes from a good heart. It comes from someone who's genuine about herself, her body, her mind and (oh god, I'm so cheesy) soul.

New Stuff: The Sample Store

Note: The following review is not paid, I'm just blogging because I find it interesting.

Look at what came in the mail earlier!

I was browsing the web a few days back and chanced upon The Sample Store
I found it pretty interesting and I signed up for an account. It's free anyway.

Anyway, some background on what The Sample Store is all about - In a nutshell, it's an online store where you can purchase samples of products you find in all major pharmacies/beauty stores which you'd like to try but is uncertain whether you want to buy the whole bottle of 160ml!

Their tagline was very well thought of: "The Easiest way to find suitable products online".

Are you one of those people who finds yourself wind up with MANY unfinished products (especially Shampoo, facial products, body care products)? You walk past a store and you stopped to look at this prettily packaged bottle. You pick it up and tried the tester. And God forbids, you actually like the smell/texture/whatever (you can just simply like how it looks! -___- I'm way too guilty......). So you wind up paying a good amount of money but months down the road, you realise that over time it doesn't really suit you and you stop using it which eventually goes to waste.

Moral of the story? It's soooo easy making money from women. (Don't be pissed at me, it's true!)

This is what we call - Compulsive purchase, my good people.

But anyway, back to The Sample Store - So what's so great about them is that they allow you to spend VERY minimum on samples of products you've always wanted to try. If you like it after a couple days of use, you purchase from the web again or buy from stores. Simple as that!

I like that the idea's fresh and very economical to our wallets. Of course, as a consumer, you'd ask this question: But I get samples for FREE what?

Yes, but if you check the online store they actually carry products that are not that commercialized over the TV or papers. Brands like Dermalogica, Be the Skin and many more. These are samples where you probably won't get so easily at Watson's or Guardian. Plus frankly, their samples don't even cost a lot. It's only a very small fraction of actual product's cost.

What's also cool about the store is it's interactive among members (like forum la) where you can read other people's reviews on a certain product before deciding whether you want to buy. You can also share your own reviews! Very cool.

The user interface is alright. They kept their design very clean and minimal. It's straightforward without all that fancy functions which I like a lot. Their look and feel remind me so much of Muji!

Anyway, if you sign up now, you'll immediately receive 6 points which you can redeem samples for FREE or at very low prices. You need 2 points to redeem 1 sample. So as usual, I got excited and browsed the site for products I want to try and decided on these two....

Organix's Cherry Blossom Ginseng Shampoo (FOC) & Dermalogica Clean Start kit (Paid $2.99)

I've heard raves about Organix shampoo that it smells divine and I've always wanted to try so I'll let you guys know how it is.

I used to use the Dermalogica range and I quite like it and generally their products are quite expensive. I paid $2.99 for 4 of their recommended product samples from their Clean Start range which I personally feel is extremely worth it instead of buying the actual item which could cost up to $200 or more for a set of 4 like this. Look out for my review when I've tried them.

My package took awhile to be delivered to me (I almost completely forgot that I bought them!!!!) but when it came in the mail, I was impressed with the packaging. My products came bubble wrapped too!! HAHAHA cheap thrill is still a thrill.

Yay bubble wrap!!

To sum it up, it's a pleasant experience purchasing from the site and I certainly hope they bring in more product samples for us vainpots to try! So far, the only down side is that they've quite limited products to get samples from.

I like how e-commerce is getting so easy to for everyone, young and old. Say bye bye to those shameless moments where you go to counters asking for samples! You can now buy them online at the comfort of your home. And YAY for saving money!!
