How to make Valentine's day special on a budget in Singapore


After a festive Christmas, in a blink of an eye Valentines day and the Chinese New Year is just around the corner.Living in a city where our daily expenses keep rising doesn't help at all either.

Fear not here are some ways to warm up that special someone's heart ...

Valentine falls on Saturday this year, that great news because that means you could spend the whole day together.

1. Take your date to the marina barrage where you could have a picnic and fly kites by day by night you could enjoy the lovely skyline of the city and star gazing by night
There is a restaurant located downstairs and just a short walk away is gardens by the bay and satay by the bay. 

2. Valentines is never completed without flowers and chocolates, these days we are spoiled for choice for delicious and yet affordable chocolate such as those imported chocolates from Choc Spot located at Nex Shopping Mall. You could buy a single rose instead of a whole bunch. Minimize instead of do without.

3. Make your own gift instead of getting something off the shelf. Write your a love letter on a self made card. Or cook a homemade meal of your favorite dish together.

4. Cuddle up to your favorite movie at home and turn off your phones so you will remain undisturbed.While ordering pizza for a nice quiet evening.

Glisten Jewel has brought in some lovely pieces for the special occasion for lovers. Bring a smile to your girlfriend's/wife's face with these affordable necklaces which come with a gift box. Each necklace is going for $6.50 each.

How to pull off hair accessories

Like any other girl, I am a huge fan of hair accessories, it compliments your hairstyle while keeping in neat and out to your face.

When it comes to styling your  hair it all depend on which cut you are wearing. For example if you have a pixie cut hairbands and head warps can totally rock this style.

When it comes to hairbands we are definitely spoiled for choice from the pretty floral 

to the adorable yet classy hair bows...

Hairbands are definitely an effortless and fun way to jazz up the pixie cut...

If you have a bunch of lovely curls, hair accessories are an awesome way to arrange your hair in a very flattering manner.

Twisting a bunch of your curls and pining it with cute bow gives you an elegant flair. 

Pins come in all sorts of stylish, chic and bold designs, it is as easy as mixing and matching the appropriate designs for  the  right  occasion.

Leather bows gives a very bold and edgy feel.

Shiny glittery ones are awesome for dinner parties or when placed appropriately for work. 

For long hair, play with the extra length cause you have more options...

Scrunchies are cool for side ponytails.

Chains are an awesome way to "decorate" your hair if you are not really in the mood to do anything else.  It looks cool and would make you the hit at any party.
