Perfect Mani/Pedis with Amopé

If you've been following me on Instagram for a long time or if you have stalked my social media accounts for awhile, you'd know that my shoe collection is pretty big. My favorite kinds of shoes to wear are sneakers and booties. While they do provide more comfort over other shoes like heels and pumps, it is still pretty impossible to escape getting calloused rough feet. After a long day of walking, I often find myself picking at the base of my heels because of all the dead skin peeling off and my fingers just can't stay away from peeling skin. I'm pretty sure you know what I'm talking about ;) but it is definitely not a good idea to be peeling the skin because I always end up digging too deep and peeling off a deeper layer that hurts. Plus, the new skin that grows back tends to be harder and rougher.

That is why Amopé came just at the right time to save my feet (and fingernails) from that terrible habit! I picked up a couple of Amopé devices from my local CVS store because they were having a really good promotion on their products. Their range of products can be found along the foot care section. (Coupon deal at the end of the post!)

The award-winning Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File is a battery operated file that smooths feet quickly and easily. Seriously, all you need to do is fire it up and file away the hard skin from any part of your foot. 

It is ergonomically designed to access the curviest contours and the roller heads are actually replaceable if you find that you need a new file or want to try another file. They have three types of files - coarse for regular skin, extra coarse for hard, calloused skin and soft touch for a smooth finish. The blue ones that you find in store are equipped with the coarse file for regular skin while the pink ones have the extra coarse file. The files are made from finely ground diamond crystals but it is gentle and safe at the same time. I know it may sound scary or rough but it is actually very gentle on the skin. Personally, I like how the diamonds add so much sparkle to the file and it just makes me so happy to use it. 

Enough talking! Let's put it to the test! 

I don't have the worst feet because I'm not in heels all the time but I don't have baby soft feet either. My main problem areas are the heels so here are some pictures to show the effects of using the foot file: 

Before: Rough and calloused heels

After: Visibly and physically smoother and softer!

Goodbye dead skin and hello #SoftFeetAllSummer! Now you don't need to be embarrassed or conscious about your feet when you wear sandals or heels throughout summer!

I also picked up the Amopé Pedi Perfect Electronic Nail File because I do my nails pretty often and I love to keep them in shape. I hate the feeling of ridges on my nails so I buff my nails almost every 2 weeks because they grow out really fast. I've been using the conventional nail buffer block which is great, but I won't deny that I get lazy to do them sometimes. It simply requires too much effort to buff all 10 nails and I always give the least effort to my ring finger and pinky. 

The nail file is also battery operated and comes with three different replaceable heads as part of a 3-step buffing process. The first one is a nail file, followed by a ridge remover and a shine buffer. 

Before: Dull and rough nail

After: Smooth and shiny nail! Don't even need to use any nail polish to get that shine.

So this electronic nail file has definitely simplified my routine because I now have this to perform the buffing motions for me. Just switch it on and buff your nails while watching some YouTube videos! I also love how the shape of the nail buffer allows you to easily reach the corners and edges of your nail so you fully cover the whole nail bed. That is something that I find hard to achieve with a manual nail buffer. Definitely shifting to this nail buffer from now on! 

Buffed nails are amazing. I love the natural healthy shine it gets and you don't even need to use nail polish! So if you have never tried it out before, this is something I would highly recommend to all you people who love taking care of your nails. 

From now 14 August 2016 till 28 August 2016, you can get $15 off a nail/foot file or $25 off two Amopé devices with these coupons at your local CVS stores:

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them.

I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious. 

I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas website. …

ALL ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Swatches on Asian Skin + Review

Recently, I dug into my collection of ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and swatched all the available shades on their website. I'm missing 5 from the website and over here, I have 31. The rest have been swatched in other collection videos/posts.

Midi (Pale Dusty Pink) Against my skin tone, this is like a pastel pink. The color remains quite close to that of the tube but the formula is slightly thick and it does settle in my lip lines and feel dry. Not exactly a color I would pull off often but I can see it working with a colorful eye look or a smokey eye.

Bianca (Soft Mauve) Love this shade and it remains quite true to the tube but it is so drying and crumbly on the lips. It accentuates my lip lines and it cracks when I smile. One of the worse formulas in this bunch, especially considering that it is a nude and most companies do not mess these sort of colors.

Clueless (Dusty Mauve) This is a really cute shade. It pulls off pinker on me than in the tube and although ColourPop d…

diy: hair bows

From the cloth I bought recently at Daiso, and with the major diy mood I was in, I decided to make a bunch of hair bows to wear when school reopens. My tutorial has been inspired and sourced through many inspirations on pinterest.  Start off with a rectangular or square piece of fabric. Squares will result in bows like the blue floral one above while rectangles will be like this bow in the tutorial. Mine measured about 24cm by 12cm. For my blue floral one, i used a 15cm by 15 cm square. Fold your fabric in half, with the insides facing out and straight stitch as highlighted. Leave a gap at the edge because you will be inverting the fabric after you're done sewing. This gap should also be of reasonable size, not to small or you will have trouble inverting the cloth. Once you are done, invert the fabric and  straighten it out. You can sew up the gap at this point if it bothers you. Using a pin or a needle, make some pleats with the fabric and pin through to get the bow shape. Once yo…
