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.
