Had to honour of attending the bridal couture runway show by Le Grand Wedding & Z Wedding some time back at W Hotel Sentosa!
Here I am wearing this gorgeous floral dress by The Closet Lover. This dress hugs me perfectly at the right places!
The whole collection features modern cuts with a myraid of necklines and vintage lace that provides the elegant twist that brings back the 70s. The gowns also embodies love, beauty and desire, with rich fabrics that drape on the body with seamless details, creating a luxurious cut.
It was such a glamourous and romantic show. The weddings gowns are incredibly beautiful and are not your usual, boring, on the racks kinda gowns. I found myself checking out each and every piece and taking down a mental note on which dresses I would like to wear on my very own wedding day, ha! From the mermaid dress to the princess cut, to the ones with a plunging neckline and backless gowns… Definitely not easy to pick just one favourite. I remember telling my friend that I aim to wear as many wedding dresses as possible hahaha hey, a girl can dream right?!
Le Grand Wedding
I was invited (and persuaded) to try out eyelash extensions about a month back (right before my Bali trip) and was contemplating for the longest time before setting my heart to it. I have heard so many awful stories about eyelash extensions e.g losing all your natural lashes, and I do not ever want to experience that because ok secret fact #1, I am pretty proud of my real lashes.
This is going to sound very narcissistic but I do have pretty long natural lashes and they aren’t sparse as well! So why you ask – Why do I still want to risk losing them? Why do I still need extensions then? Well the truth is, I do not need it, really. I just wanted it. Because you see, even though I have eyelashes, they are all straight and really ugly if I don’t curl them and I just truly wanted to experience waking up with curly, gorgeous lashes.
Initially when Devonshire EyeDesign, located at 113 Devonshire Road, contacted me, I was a little skeptical and asked the poor marketing lady so many questions. Haha and then I went on to see the lashes they did for others and they all looked pretty awesome so I decided to give it a try myself. And I have never regretted my decision ever since.
I do not know if this is the same everywhere else but the single lashes (I did only 100 lashes because I wanted it to be super natural but I’m definitely going for more the next time I am there!!) that EyeDesign did for me are so soft and light that I don’t even feel them on my lids! I also drifted in and out of sleep during the 1 hour procedure… No pain at all!!
My girlfriend told me after that she did her lashes somewhere else and it was so heavy and it hurt so much to even open her eyes after the procedure… The lashes were just giving her a real bad time that she went back on the very day to remove it. So bummed to hear that, isn’t it?! Thank god my virgin experience went really smoothly!
Really like the interior of the salon as well… It is so cosy and makes me feel all calm and at peace!
Here I am, barefaced with only brows drawn (they said no eye make up should be on) right after the procedure, with my Japanese eyelash-ist, Momo! She is so gentle and have really steady hands…
This is 3 days later when I was in Bali… So natural they are even better than my favourite falsies!!!
And this is a few days back. It’s been almost a month and they are still attached! Some have fallen out but it is still looking good! And my real lashes are all intact still!
The boy didn’t even realised I have lashes on until I woke up with eyes so bright one morning! Getting my make up done now is sucha breeze…. I even skip my eye make up during my off days now! How can I not have done this earlier?!
If you’re looking to try eyelash extensions out, I would suggest giving Devonshire EyeDesign a chance to prove to you just how soft and comfortable their lashes are! Mention my name ‘Francesca’ for 25% off ala carte services while you’re there!
So anyway… Thank you EyeDesign! I won’t be doing the extensions on a monthly basis though, I do miss my mascaras and I think that it is good and healthy to let your real lashes breathe every now and then but it is definitely my go-to stop whenever I am travelling now – Just like how I need to do my nails when I am about to fly! :D
Just wanted to add on something real quick – I have received overwhelming responses on my last post and I just want to thank all of you for reading! You guys really do not need to thank me because I wrote that from my personal experiences and just wanted to share with people who are struggling. But ever since that post, I am quite inspired to continue writing, sharing and helping! Let me know if there are any topics you would like me to cover? Might even rope in the boy if anything interesting comes up! I’m sure he will be willing to. Heh don’t tell him I say that!
