Luminous 1 Event with Jamie Chua & Sharon Tang

Recently, I was invited to go for the Luminous-1 event by the ever famous socialites in town, Ms Jamie Chua & Ms Sharon Tang. Both of them have got such glowing skin you’ll be really self conscious and you will too wish for their skin really.

It was such an honour to receive the invitation!

The event was held at Thong Teck building, one of the stockists for Luminous 1 products. It was a chi-chi event topping with canapes and drinks. Luminous-1 products were researched and developed in Switzerland. Each of us were given the collagen sheet masks pack signed by Jamie. In real life, she’s really nice and friendly and makes the effort to talk to you. Although she’s a socialite, she’s pretty much down to earth despite many people thinks she’s always flaunting her wealth, I must say it was fun getting to know her in person especially when she described using cheap paint for drawing her own paintings while Sharon uses professional paints but she draws cute stuffs. She also shared with us on how she used the collagen masks. Most of us would leave it for the stated time and then not wash the essence off but for her, she prefers to wash it all off as she doesn’t like the sticky feeling after.

Sharon is really very nice in person too, just as friendly as she is on social medias. Hopefully there’s a chance to meet them again! Oh, not only do they own Luminous-1, they are also the brains behind The Closet Raider. If you’re looking for branded luxury items, hop over to their Instagram account @theclosetraider or The Closet Raider website to have a look.

Made some new friends at the event as well. We 3 were the earliest so we got a chance to talk more with the hosts.

This is the PA of Jamie who’s very hardworking and helping to take pictures of the event.

Below are some of the lucky girls who won the meet and greet passes.

At the event, there was a special one time offer of 10% off for all products, so I decided to get The Elixir to try out. πŸ™‚ The Elixir with Tomato Stem Cells protects the skin from pollution, premature ageing and sun damage. A firming day and night serum formulated to hydrate, lift, tighten skin cells and boost vitality. It is luxuriously formulated with a patented Lycoskin Defense, obtained from tomato stem cell culture, that lifts and tightens, while assuring cellular vitality and longevity. Unique extracts of multi-vitamins and Vitamin B3 amalgamated to effectively deeply hydrate, smooth and refine overall texture. Skin imperfections are reduced and freckle lightened. This deluxe formula is enriched with a natural lightening complex property that further targets skin pigmentation disorders. I’ve not tried it yet though as my skin’s giving me some problems right now and I don’t wish to try a foreign product on it currently to aggravate any situations. I honestly can’t wait to try it!

Trash Candy Hong Kong

Headed over to Hong Kong for a holiday and I was very fortunate to get a sponsor from Hong Kong!

Here’s presenting you Trash Candy.

Trash Candy is a sister brand of Amdacious. If you’re a local, you might have seen Amdacious for quite some time now as they’ve been in the market for 4 years and counting. Trash Candy by Amdacious is a fashion brand for all ages that transcends generations. It is for those with a vibrant spirit who dare to dream and want to be different. (That sounds so me!!!)

The brand presents a range of minimalism, yet sophisticated leather bags and accessories design with complete inspiring packaging. Each collection entices a ray of vibrant and fun pastel candy colors for its palette.

With each store beautifully created to reminiscent an old fashion candy store and merchandise display, you are never too old for a childhood memory.

I really love the entire branding Trash Candy has because it does invoke nice memories of childhood. I did a lookbook for them while I was in Hong Kong. Here are some photos first before I show you their store.

I was sponsored this pink clutch. It retails at HKD 1190, which is approximately S$210.44. The quality of the leather bag is really good and the logo is so cute! It’s a push cart.

Checkout my short video of Trash Candy Store.

Look at the concept of the store. In fact, when I spoke to Liz, the marketing lady in charge of Trash Candy, she said they are slowly shifting into the vintage look for the entire store.

Can you see my pink clutch? They have 2 other colors available but I chose the pink since I already have a black clutch and pink is a nice color.

They also sell leather jackets which are extremely popular especially during the winter season in Hong Kong. In Singapore some times it might get a little too hot, but our air con can be freezing cold too! I’ve always wanted a real leather jacket because mine are all synthetic. Ha! Perhaps the next time I’m in Hong Kong during winter I will get one!

Here’s a photo with Liz. She’s really nice, pretty and friendly. Liz, if you are reading this, I hope you do come to Singapore some day and I’ll be happy to host you!!! πŸ™‚

While I’m back in Singapore, there were occasions where I could use the bag. Contrary to what people think where a pink bag is difficult to match, here are some ideas.

I paired it in the monochrome style and pink really pops and it instantly makes your outfit shine! I also paired it with a floral dress. Too many colors? Nope, not to me. There’s no right or wrong in fashion, just dress as you like and be different!

Apart from Trash Candy, I had the chance to visit Amdacious too, which is in the same mall as Trash Candy. Amdacious embodies British spirits and the dynamic rock and roll vibe of London. The brand offers authentic, and urban street wear pieces. Its focus on styling, details and exquisite workmanship makes each piece unique and timeless.

The concept of the store is very different from Trash Candy. It’s very rock chic and it has a rugged vintage feel to it.

The photo below looks super nice and I’m considering to use this as my phone’s wallpaper or something. Haha!
