With Hari Raya arriving next Friday (yaaas to another long weekend!) it’s only apt to wear your kebaya with beautiful jewellery to match! Choo Yilin’s Kebaya collection is a stunning embodiment of rich heritage and cultural diversity, drawing inspiration from the Peranakan community – a mixture of Chinese and Malay traditions.
The Collection comprises of Jade Studs, a Gemstone Ring, the Jade Donut Necklace and a jade bangle. Each piece will feature options in metalwork (solid 9kt or 18kt gold, and Sterling Silver), as well as alluring colours that reflect the vibrance of a kebaya. These designs are so intricate yet still dainty, and we can imagine them being perfect heirloom pieces to pass down for generations!

The summer heatwave is upon us and you may notice your hair and skin feeling and looking especially parched and dull these days, right mama? For skin, try LIERAC’s Lumilogie Day & Night Dark-Spot Correction Double Concentrate with Hexyl R, Sea Daffodil Extract, and Plantain Extract to battle stubborn dark spots.
One bottle contains two formulas, for day and night respectively.
The intensive non-oily Day Concentrate is formulated with the STAR PLANT (Narrowleaf Plantain) to combat the phenomenon of stubborn pigmentation spots. The skin is immediately softer, smoother, and more radiant after each application, thanks to the micro-pearls formed by a coating of mica.
For night, the evanescent gel balm gives an instant smoothing effect. LIERAC has incorporated a hydroxy acid concentrate with seven hxdroxy acids; six AHAs: glycolic acid, lactic acid, pyruvic acid, citric acid, malic acid, and tartaric acid, and one BHA: salicylic acid. All these ingredients work together to hydrate the skin immensely while eliminating the build-up of melanin.
LUMILOGIE is paraben-free, hypoallergenic with no synthetic colorants and suitable for all skin types.

Ever thought micro-needling was just a little too terrifying? We’ve seen some amazing results from people who are brave enough to try it though! It’s actually not that bad once you get over the thought of tiny needles prickling your skin. But for the faint of heart, rejoice – there’s a brand new skin treatment that gives you the same results, except without the needles! We got a chance to try out ART by Verita’s Needless Skin Booster, a brand new anti-aging facial treatment that has a unique needless system which includes an exclusive blend of power-packed ingredients that nourishes the skin, providing deep hydration while stimulating collagen synthesis and production.
Ideal for any skin type that appears dull or showing early signs of ageing – perfect for us mamas! The ‘needles’ in this treatment are in the form of microscopic porous herbal needles (not visible to the naked eye) which are massaged onto your skin and left to penetrate for a short period of time. It’s then wiped off while the ‘needles’ continue to penetrate the skin, but is biodegradable within 36 hours. Don’t worry, you don’t see anything but you may feel a slight prickly sensation when you touch your skin – just avoid doing this for the next 36 hours! The transformation to your skin can be seen instantaneously and days after you will see your skin glow, your pores minimise and fine lines diminish! The 90-minute facial costs $450 at ART by Verita.
Find it: 90-minute Needless Skin Booster facial priced at $450/session at ART by Verita, 501 Orchard Road, #04-01 Wheelock Place, Singapore 238880
