Mosche Grand Hyatt Hair Colouring with Okara Scalp Ampoule

singapore grand hyatt hair salon mosche review
Does your hair stylist add on a Scalp Protection Treatment before colouring your hair? Generally, a scalp protector such as ampoule is formulated to protect your hair and scalp during colour treatment, highlighting and bleaching, while enhancing the radiance and intensity of the colour.

rene furterer okara color binding oil review
During my recent visit to Mosche Grand Hyatt to colour my hair, the Rene Furterer Okara Color-Binding Oil was applied on my scalp and hair. Rich in amino acids, the Anatide complex shields hair to prevent damage and protects against dehydration.

This time, I decided to have tri-colour but without bleaching as it can be very damaging to the hair. I wanted something mild but with visible contrast. I asked my stylist Daniel if that is achievable, and he said it is possible but of course results would not be as prominent as bleaching. I decided to go ahead and give it a try.

DGII Sheep Placenta Plus Softgels, Age-Defying Cell Therapy

dgii switzerland sheep placenta plus softgels review
Cell therapy was invented in 1931 by Swiss physician, Prof. Dr. Paul Niehans, MD, and findings have shown that ageing is mainly caused by the deterioration of cells. As we age, our cells gradually lose their ability to function optimally. As our cells deteriorate, it requires cell therapy in order to regenerate.

Air Connection Design Review: Daikin Multi-Split Inverter

singapore airon suppliers daikin annual promotion gss 2017
I am sure most would agree with me that choosing an air-conditioning contractor can be a pain. Aircon installation, as with home renovation can be a nightmare if you engage the wrong contractor.

As much as I would like to change my existing air-conditioners, there are also couple of other things to consider such as workmanship, and the different types of air conditioning systems. As I am living in a condominium, more work needs to be done since piping is concealed unlike HDB. Hacking of ceiling is an example, and my hubby is strongly against since it may leave ugly marks.

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Air Connection Design recently to change all my 3 bedrooms’ air-conditioners, but I had a hard time convincing my hubby as hacking is compulsory in order to install new piping.

singapore lifestyle blogger reviews air connection design
I assured him that we are in good hands with Air Connection’s good standing and years of experience. Hubby finally agreed to have an on-site survey one weekend, and Nick came down to explain the type of aircons suitable for our usage and what’s needed to be done.

Nick was friendly and patient, and had recommended the 3 top air conditioning brands – Daikin, Mitsubishi and Panasonic. After going through our lifestyle, Nick suggested the Daikin 3 Ticks Multi-Split Inverter Air-Conditioner or the 3 Ticks Mitsubishi Starmex, which is sufficient for our family's usage. Nick also explained that a total of 3 areas had to be hacked - the ceiling above our 3 bedrooms, the common toilet and the yard toilet. Nick reassured us that these areas would be properly patched and painted over.

After much consideration and discussion, we decided to go ahead with the Daikin 3 Ticks Multi-Split Inverter Air-Conditioner as hubby was relatively comfortable with Nick after speaking to him. In this post, we will be sharing all the things you need to know about aircon installation and piping.

The Singaporean-Way!

mt elizabeth health plus article
In Singapore, while we don't have to worry too much about food and living conditions, one thing we would agree on is that stress levels are skyrocketing. Year after year, we have news reports telling us what we already know – that we’re stressed ( or perhaps beyond stressed ).

That's not surprising, though.

As products of the Singaporean education system, we have been conditioned to deal with stress. ( Think quarterly exams, never-ending mountain of homework, CCA and so on. ) And it definitely doesn't get easier as we enter the workplace. Long hours, micro-managing bosses, unsatisfactory salaries; all these add to the stress that’s become part and parcel of life ( only we now get to coin it job stress ).

According to Dr Paul Chiam in a Health Plus piece, job stress and long hours can directly affect the heart and subject you to increased risk of heart disease. His article on job stress and heart disease says those who work 61 to 70 hours a week have a 42% higher likelihood of developing coronary heart disease.
