  • Ipoh 2016 | S I X P E G S

    sixpegs.com 02 Dec '16, 6pm

    I am so happy that the trip happened. I didn’t get to travel much this year, really far cry from the 16 cities I went to last year. Sim and Michelle were such great company, really cannot ask for more. 2016 marks the first time I travelled with friends, and also the year that I experi...

    Gift Guide #4: Kids

    crystalstine.me 02 Dec '16, 12pm

    I have a 5 year old (GAH! How did that happen? I swear she was just turning one.) so of course I had to include a kids section in this year’s gift guide. I did try to mix in a few items that would be fun for boys, but these would all honestly be on Madi’s wishlist if she had the chanc...

  • My Final Project: Introducing "Craving Connection"

    crystalstine.me 01 Dec '16, 12pm

    Last April I sat in a room full of incredible editors and publishers, listening as they pitched incredible ideas for books that could come from (in)courage. I was in love. I was learning so much from all of these wonderfully wise men and women who worked in a field I dreamed of being ...

    A Christmas Story - A New Series

    crystalstine.me 30 Nov '16, 3pm

    Don’t worry. I’m not going to subject you to an entire month of the Christmas Story movie. I might be one of the rare people who frankly does not get/like/understand that movie or why it has to be on for 24 hours on Christmas day. Give me “White Christmas” or really any movie on the H...

    In fact, Astaxanthin is the key ingredient in contributing to BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen’s effectiveness. Astaxanthin added to collagen creates this natural shield against the collagen being depleted from my skin cells by stresses beyond my control such as age, the lack of slee...

  • The Tiahs X Hello Kitty Town X Legoland

    fourfeetnine.com 29 Nov '16, 4pm

    So near if you’re coming from KL or Singapore you can just drive down. I loved driving down cos we don’t have to pack to fit airline requirements – we just packed everything into the car and went. Cheaper than going overseas Legoland and Hello Kitty Town etc are damn clean and well ma...

  • Postnatal Hair Loss Solutions

    hollyjean.sg 29 Nov '16, 1am

    For me, the factors were- a poor diet (and lack of water), stress from a busy lifestyle (there's no time to relax, many late nights on the computer and a lack of sleep) and significant weight loss ( I lost all my pregnancy weight gain which was about 20 kg quite sudden after delivery)...

  • 10 Hair Hacks EVERYONE Needs To Know

    frmheadtotoe.com 27 Nov '16, 4pm

    I've always been a beauty girl, whether it was an obsession with the perfect nail polish application or collecting a million lipglosses, but for some reason hair has been the one category where I am admittedly lax about. I'd just rather spend the extra five minutes perfecting my masca...

    “What does success mean to you?” “How do you see yourself in 10 years?” “What is your recipe to success?” Gosh I hate these kinds of questions. They’re so hard! I mean, you really don’t go around thinking about all these. If you are, then you’re probably not working hard enough! Haha....

    Today I’m sharing some of my favorite kitchen & home decor items. I use that “I Literally Can’t Even” mug weekly, and the inspiralizer is something we use all the time for dinners (if you’ve ever wanted to try zoodles, this is the spiralizer you need!). It was actually hard to limit t...

    Meal Prepping: Roast Vegetable and Quinoa

    I’ve been trying to get my weekly eating patterns in order… so I made up a huge batch of Roast Vegetable and Quinoa Salad for myself and my husband. It sounds a bit fancy, but I just cubed 1 large sweet potato, 4 potatoes, 1 aubergine, 1 head of cauliflower and seasoned it all with ga...

  • Giving out of guilt, Giving out of love

    rachelheldevans.com 24 Nov '16, 7pm

    For the past five years or so, I’ve struggled with a pretty intense case of survivor’s guilt. It may sound silly, but I feel guilty because I was born in the United States of America to white, middle-class Christian parents, a fact that—through no merit of my own—has provided me with ...

  • by Jane Chuck.: To those who think they're stupid.

    chuckei.com 24 Nov '16, 1pm

    I wonder how many people out there who tend to think they're too stupid to do so much for someone. I think it's pretty common to feel stupid / being used / taken for granted as people nowadays are becoming less appreciative and more calculative. Who to blame? The people around us? The...

    What I Wore: Simple with a bit of Statement

    I was off to a meeting the other day, and outfit-wise, I was feeling reeeeeally lazy. I threw on a simple and casual top + bottom combo, with a sharp blazer and a structured handbag to make it look smart. I was going to wear white sneakers, which would have been O-K. But at the last m...
