I cannot deal with how this coming Fri is a foot into the second half of the year. How did all of 5 months pass so fast?! 😰
Out of my usual Mon-Fri work + post work socializing and weekends family and rest, I took a Saturday out to frolic around with @gilliansng huhuhu 🤗
Usually we do weekday dinners but it was because of
IUIGA’s pop up!
📍 Singpost Centre #01-146
Open daily 10am-10pm
Starting humbly from a homegrown online store to their first pop up ☺️ Couldn’t be happier for them.
Thanks for the invite Jaslyn & Juliana!
Fun fact I never knew Singpost Centre was a mall. I always thought it was erm, a huge postal office LOLOL. I clearly don’t go to Paya Lebar enough.
Look at this Gilli posing the moment she knew my camera was in place 😒😒😂
I think the sofa she was sitting on is a new launch btw! I believe IUIGA has just ventured into furniture.
The place was so nice and woody and Scandinavian and so aestheticccccc. Mi luv.
I was so inspired by Netflix series Queer Eye to revamp my room post my 3 week home hiatus because of the toilet reno but guess who never got to it coz she’s always been too tired? 😂 Still dreaming of turning my room into something white and woody for now hahahahaha.
Look at the gorgeous set up of the kitchenware. Excu me I would like one of everything thanks 😂
“Hi there, welcome to IUIGA! Start your browsing right up the beauty alley.”
Gilli and I were fawning over the beauty section of course. It was bees to honey hahaha. Unsurprisingly the store is fronted by the star silicon cleanser which I also bagged home to try, courtesy of IUIGA.
This one! Highly rated and reviewed by quite a couple of influencers around haha. I’m actually really excited to try this for two reasons.
A) Price point wise this is def super affordable so it could change the world!!
B) I’ve never used a cleansing device so I really wanna see how well this works out for me
Let y’all know when I’ve tried it out 👌🏻
We spent so long playing with this mist device L O L.
It costs slightly under $30 and it was just quite... Mystifying. LOLOL GEDDIT. Sorry if we wasted a lot of water while at it but this was seriously quite mesmerizing to watch and idk, mist our face hahahaha.
See!! The mist that comes out was super nice and soft and not like the usual sprays you get of the likes of bioessence or avene. It’s like... you don’t even feel it very much hahahaha. But in a good way.
I have no real need for it coz I still have n bottles of bioessence water to work thru but it was a super nice feeling. Would work good for other stuff you wanna refresh your face with e.g. rose water.
Look at the fabulousity steppppppp #singaporesnexttopmodel
(Pls don’t kill me for the caption but I really like this pic)
The pop up is also where IUIGA has begun to stock stationary! Think Kikki K-ish kind of items like marble notepads & post it notes sets, super cute shaped paper clips like cacti and moustaches and even flamingoes (!!), and rose gold all around.
Writing about it is making my heart beat v fast coz it was so purdy and thinking back makes me excited LOL.
I only bought a few pens for very practical reasons (my pens in the office suck and we don’t have a proper office stationary supply) but this will def make for pretty gifts!
I believe you won’t be able to find stationary online (yet) because IUIGA’s testing it out offline first to see how demand is like but if you’re looking for gifts you can check this out!
But what I was really eyeing in the shop was the diffuser 👀
I’ve wanted one for SUCH A LONG TIME. No kidding but this dates back monthsssss.
It’s no secret that I’m constantly stressed at my workplace coz of the speed in which we do things and my never ending workload and this results in me being unable to sleep sometimes ☹️ Hence when I was in Chiang Mai earlier this year I bought a ton of essential oils to help me relax/ sleep.
But the problem after that was that I didn’t know what was the best way to smell my essential oils to sleep. This convo turned out hilarious coz Gilli had the same problem.
I was saying I tried putting it on my pillow but I couldn’t really smell it unless I really dig half my face into my pillow so that my nose is close to the pillow surface BUT WHO SLEEPS LIKE THAT LOLOL.
And Gilli was just saying that she puts it directly on her face, on between her nose and lip, to which I replied LOL why not the temples too, 枫油-style HAHAHAHA.
Our conversations sometimes are really just retarded 🤦🏻♀️😂
But anyway I also tried putting it on my wrist which I lay beside my head but still not the best solution so YES TL;DR I really wanted a diffuser.
The weird part was that the diffuser was out on display but not on the shelves! It was only later when we asked Jaslyn that we found out due to certain rules they can’t sell it openly at the store. I say openly because if you were to ask the store assistants about it, they can whip one out for you like magic hahahahaha.
And then a small respite on the sofa where we were up to our weird antics again.
Being a mischief maker I like to annoy my friends by randomly interlocking my fingers with theirs and their responses are usually hilarious when they draw their hand back in and give me a shocked face. Gilli decided she had something better in store and decided to pinch my fingers like the top ways of torture in Chinese history 😱 that horrible woman hahahahahaha.
Also met @lynnnnn irl! Sg is just so small ok she’s the cousin in law of my colleague. Got to meet little Natasha too. Aiyo such a cutie.
We saw her figure out where the drinks are to playing with it to
Constantly passing them to us and eventually, plucking out the straws from the drinks 😱😱😂😂😂😂
I missed my bb Lele when I saw her do all that coz I’m sure he would do that too HAHAHA.
Thanks for having us Jaslyn!!
If you guys wanna get feels of the products you’re looking to buy, you can head down to the IUIGA store! I saw a luggage at the store yesterday when I walked past so that being a best seller might be what you wanna see/feel/check out. They don’t sell that at the store atm but you can always buy it online with free delivery :-)
Most popular products are stocked but of coz the space is limited so not everything is there but most should be!
Went location scouting for a good ootd spot for Gilli and ended up in front of some bougainvilleas at the mrt where the bike parking was just nearby. This @iamselheng is always nagging at me to help her plug ofo so NAH HERE U GO.
25c flash sale on Shopee for a 30-day pass rn which is sups dups cheap hahaha I already bought two. I think you might be able to stack it too but I’m not super sure haha but ok go support Selina if you like bike sharing ok #goodthingsmustshare
The eventual #ootd by my fav photographer @gilliansng wheeeee. Dress from @theclosetlover!
Took me forever to take a good photo of this coz I don’t have similar ootd friends at my current workplace who will indulge me or I feel bad asking them to take photos for me ☹️ good part is I saw that it’s still avail at the Raffles Xchange outlet recently hehe if you’re interested!
Wow this post took me so long to write haha I am really super out of touch 😑
Hope everyone’s having a good Sunday! One work day before a public holiday on Tue. I could really use that day off 😌
