Graphic Design

I used to get a lot of comments about my skin, but lately thanks to an over-indulgence of cakes and chips, a few areas of my face have decided go on strike and are commanding serious pay increases in the form of extreme TLC. Face creams just didn’t cut it, so I asked around. What’s the best way to get rid of acne scarring? A week ago I experienced my first facial Vibradermabrasion at Vitruvius Cosmetic Clinic. I am very sceptical about most cosmetic procedures, however I heard great things from girlfriends about Vibradermabrasion- it’s non-invasive, effective and it’s a step up from an ordinary facial. My favourite part of the procedure is the massage delivered via the rhythmic vibrations of the hand-piece. It provides gentle exfoliation and stimulates collagen production.  Your face is meticulously cleaned, and treatment lotion is lathered across your skin just like a normal facial, but as an Asian whose face tends to get puffy with tiredness, the gentle motion of the machine is what really gets my lymphatic traffic moving. And the result? Hopefully a more toned and even appearance. Well, I’ll let you be the judge of that.

I discovered both the designers of Mischa (Michelle) and Froth & Cloth (Anne, she is both an amazing blogger and jeweller) in Sydney during fashion week. Now I rarely leave home without the Mischa carry-all for road trips and weekend stays. I recently toted it to Sydney for the Qantas New Uniform Launch, for filming the makeup tutorials with Master Makeup at The InterContinental Hotel and whenever I head to extras jobs, where I’m usually required to bring 3 outfit options for the costume department. In typical Hong Kong cheer, the turtle motif of the Mischa bags represent longevity and the bags are made from waxed cotton so they are water-resistant. I recall running in the thunderstorms after being on set of House Husbands last Friday night. The only thing that remained dry was the content of my bag…

What are some of your new fashion finds? And do you have any recommendations for healthy skin?

以前别人总称赞我的皮肤,但最近由于蛋糕和薯条的品尝过度,我的皮肤已经开始罢工了!面霜不够管用,我问了很多人,什么是抹去青春痘疤痕最好的方法?一个星期前,我经历了第一个面部Vibradermabrasion。我不赞成整容手术,Vibradermabrasion不算整容,更像面部按摩。她们使用一个有振动的按摩机器。它帮助你出去皮肤表面的一层细胞,并刺激胶原蛋白的生产。半个小时后,我的脸真的更润滑,清晰。我总认为我们亚洲人的脸容易浮肿,所以那柔和的按摩机器能协助我们的淋巴流量移动。你觉得呢?

西月份的时候,在悉尼时装周我认识了Mischa (Michelle)的设计者和Froth & Cloth (Anne,她是一个超棒的Blogger和首饰设计师)。现在,如果我去旅游或周末住宿,我总会带上我的Mischa包包。最近,我去参加悉尼的澳航新制服的开幕时,并在The InterContinental Hotel拍摄化妆课程的时,都带上了我的Mischa包。包上的龟代表长寿,它的布料能防水。我还记得上个星期五晚上,那天下了雷风雨,唯一没被淋透的是我的包……

你最近发现一些新的时尚产品吗?你对健康的皮肤有任何建议吗?

Love the Karen Milen dress! :)

I only shop at Zara now due to my busy work schedule, but I’m not complaining! Also, for healthier skin all I can say is drink plenty of water!

That dress is stunning on you! I was scrolling in awe at how pretty it was then got to that photo of you “wearing” the Mischa bag and had a good giggle. Your blog is so fun to read! :)

I always think your skin looks beautiful :) How did you find the vibradermabrasion process though? I confess to not knowing anything about this till I read your post! My skin is super sensitive, normal facials leave me all red and shiny so I’ve always been wary of the “abrasion” part of any of the fancy facials. Fancy probably not the right word, but I hope you know what I mean.

I love high contrast patterns–that dress is stunning. I love the bag as well. No tips for healthy skin here! I do all the bad stuff–eat chocolate, don’t drink enough water, not enough sleep, etc. I heard a vitamin C serum is good though (again, something I don’t do)!
