Reliving My Favorite Music at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

So I’ll be the first to admit - they just don’t make country music like they used to. “Southern Pop;” “Tractor Rap;” “Progressive Country; “Bro Country” - call it what you will, I just can’t seem to find the tolerance I need to listen the majority of artists I hear popping up on Country radio nowadays. I’ve found that the best way to indulge in the classic Country that I love most is with a trip to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee.

It’s not that I think all modern Country is all bad - it’s just not what I like. In my mind, there’s no such thing as right or wrong when it comes to making music, or any sort of art in general. There’s simply what you like, and what you don’t like. When it comes to the modern stuff, I’ll be polite, and just leave it at, “I don’t much care for it.”

Fortunately, Country is one of those genres of music that not only wears its inspirations on its sleeves, but openly pays tribute to the great songwriters and musicians that have come before. Even modern country artists, to their credit, continue this tradition in their album notes, and by featuring at least one cover song on every album. Artists both young and old always point out and thank the music makers that came before them at every awards show. Most importantly, the great tradition that is Country music continues to not only survive, but thrive.

So, while I can’t say that I’m much for the stuff playing on satellite radio today, I rest easy in the knowledge that Country, as both an art form and arch point to an entire history and culture of people, will continue to be preserved, passed on, and enjoyed for generations to come.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. They recently opened a new exhibit called Outlaws and Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ‘70s, and though I’ve gone back several times over the years, it had been awhile, and this was the perfect excuse to make a return trip to this very special place.

All Geared Up For 2019 with a New Hairstyle!

singapore beauty influencer reviews h4u salon hair cut
Happy New Year, Sunshine! Are you ready to welcome 2019? Last Christmas after giving away 10 Free Hair Cuts, I felt I needed a good cut myself too to usher in the New Year, and so off I went to H4U Salon located in Centrepoint, Orchard Road.

My hair was getting messy and out of shape; badly in need of some tidying up. Shawn, H4U Founder/Director, cut off layers of my hair giving me more volume. I have natural curls, and my curls will appear usually after a good trim. This feminine shoulder-length style features long thick fringe, and my current dual-tone colour adds a dimension and heightened the elegant feel. What do you think of my new hair cut?

Reasonably priced at just SGD 69/SGD 60 ( Female/Male ) for Director's Cut, and SGD 49/SGD 40 ( Female/Male ) for Creative Director, I think the prices are rather attractive for a reputable salon in Orchard Road. Besides, followers of Luxury Haven gets a 30% off these prices!

Well, 3 winners of Luxury Haven have already claimed their prizes at H4U Salon. The ladies are delighted with their new hairstyle, and have some very good comments about the salon. Let’s hear what they have to say!

Reduce Signs Of Photodamage with DNA Repair Technology

reduce signs of photodamage with dna repair technology
Living in a tropical country close to the equator like Singapore means there is no escaping from the sun, and we are constantly exposed higher levels of solar UV radiation. The damaging effects of UV rays not only fire up the risk of skin cancers, they also cause collagen fibre breakdown, giving us unwanted wrinkles and pigmentation.

We are fortunate to have advanced skincare technology these days, and really do not need to worry too much about ageing fast as long as we take good care of our skin and invest in quality skincare products.

Christmas Prawns and Spinach Filo Rolls in Philadelphia Cheese

philadelphia cheese christmas prawns and spinach phyllo rolls
The anticipation heightens as you sink your teeth into these Crispy Filo Roll-Ups, filled with succulent Prawns and healthy greens in Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

Filo, Fillo or Phyllo, these Rolls or Pastries are made by layering many sheets of Filo brushed with butter and then baked. These yummy treats are great for dinner parties. Filo Pastry Sheets, available in supermarkets, are wonderful alternatives as working with filo from scratch takes up a lot of time, which requires patience and skills to roll into thin sheets.

I found the Fillo Factory Whole Wheat Fillo Dough in Cold Storage, and it was on sale. I quickly grabbed a box and went home to experiment with it. While I have tried many filo pastries, it was a first for me with this Whole Wheat Fillo Dough.

Wrapped with cheesy delicious fillings, these Prawns and Spinach Filo Pastries with Rocket Salad make a delicious Christmas treat! So work those muscles out! Have fun stacking those tissue-thin sheets layer by layer and fill them up with your favourite ingredients! I guarantee it’s worth the effort!
