As part of its efforts to position itself as a global lifestyle footwear brand, Crocs unveiled a new retail look with the reopening of their VivoCity Store in Singapore.
It's all very wood-based and very classy looking now. Along with the new decor and look, you should totally check out their latest arrivals which once again surprise and wow me.
No longer just a clog company, Crocs offers more than 300 footwear styles – from ladies’ wedges, mary janes and flats, to men’s sneakers, loafers and golf shoes. Check out their 2013 lookbook here.
General Manager of Crocs Southeast Asia, Lawrence Phua said, “This new and refreshing look that Crocs has adopted represents a key part of our plan to build and develop the brand across Singapore. And as this is an experimental project, we would like to focus on engaging our customers and getting their response in order for us to identify their needs and expand in the market”.
I thought this pair of men's loafers is quite nice!
Rediscovering classics and celebrating innovation, the new Crocs concept store in Singapore adapts a visibly and quite literally more down-to-earth look and feel with predominantly wooden interiors and design. This makes it easier for customers to navigate the shop and browse the new range of styles offered by Crocs.
I have the above pair is grey! But omg, the yellow is lovely!
On the new concept store, Lawrence Phua added, “We are thrilled to be revealing this new concept to our loyal customers and we also aim to capture a new audience in the process of revamping our look. The Vivo City branch is the pilot outlet in Southeast Asia with the aim of increasing in-store consumer engagement, and we hope to get consumer feedback on the new shopping experience on offer.”
I also got myself a pair of Women's Cap Toe Flat (S$64.90) from the event! I've always wanted this design and am so glad I have it now!
I wear Crocs's Carlisa Mini Wedge in grey to work everyday and this new Women's Cap Toe Flat would totally extend my "work shoe" collection.
Crocs shoes are very comfortable but what I love most about them are that I can wash them all! So my shoes are usually very clean cos I can wash them! I've been a regular Crocs wearer for like 5 years now. If you see me outside, the chances of me in a Crocs shoe is like 90%.
For work days, I wear the Carlisa Mini Wedge, for casual weekends, I wear Adrina Flat II (S$74.90) in grey! ♥♥♥
Since I last met Dr Piyamas for a grueling 2 hours of preparation for the Porcelain Veneers, it’s been 5 days (met her on Thursday and next appointment was the following Monday).
5 days was all it needed (weekends included) to manufacture my new Porcelain Veneers. It was exciting and I was really looking forward to having the new, permanent ones on!
Check out what I did during my 8 days stay in Bangkok here.
For the 5 days, Dr Piyamas put on temp veneers on me, one of which was loose. Fortunately, I managed to put it back on quite easily and made it stay there till my appointment.
On the morning of my appointment, 2 of my temp veneers had slightly black stains on them, which kind of worried me but Dr Piyamas said it was normal and nothing to worry about.
She took about 2.5 hours for this second appointment. First she showed me the Porcelain Veneers fitted on a mock impression of my teeth.
I don't really know how I can best express my feelings when I saw this. It was like, I've dreamt of this all my life. The search for beautiful teeth and here they are, right in front of me, specially for me. My new teeth, just hours away from being permanently bonded to my current teeth. It was pretty life-changing.
She then spent the next 2.5 hours cleaning, sticking the Veneers on, and making sure the gaps between each tooth are still present. A special cement was applied to the veneers and the veneers were then placed on my tooth. Once properly position on the tooth, Dr Piyamas then shined a special light beam to my veneers, which activated the chemicals in the cement, causing it to harden quickly.
She also took care to ensure that none of the new Veneers were too high and that it felt natural for me when I bite.
Here’s me on the Dentist’s chair. I had to cover my mouth cos my lips were kinda swollen after the local anesthesia!! Btw, I really enjoy having local anesthesia! Dr Piyamas is super gentle with the injections. I can’t even feel much when she injects them in! <3!
My beautiful smile begins NOW!
The last step was for me to return for a follow-up visit in 2 days to check out how my gums are responding the the veneers and to examine if my bite is okay.
Here are some pictures to share after my Veneers got fixed on!
It’s amazing. I couldn’t stop smiling. Dr Piyamas is a genius and I cannot thank her and the team at Bangkok Smile Dental enough. I feel like my life has taken a turn for the better. The unevenly shaped teeth I used to have is now gone.
I feel so much more confident and I look forward to showing more of my teeth instead of taking close-mouthed smiles now!
This is Dr Piyamas. She’s very motherly and I feel extremely comfortable with her. She’s always smiling and very welcoming during all my appointments. I had like a million questions on after-care and she patiently went through it all with me.
Thank you, thank you so much!
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try my best to answer them below!

I've been using Asience's new range of Leave-On Treatment for the past couple of weeks. Well on and off because I'm lazy.. Haha! I have all 3 of the Water, Milk and Oil as pictured below.
Depending on the texture you like, the New ASIENCE Leave-On Hair Treatment range comes in three different formats – Oil, Milk and Water.
Containing ASIENCE’s exclusive Beauty Essences (Lotus Flower, Camellia Oil, Pearl and Shell Ginger Leaf), the range provides intensive repair and moisturises hair from within. Enhanced with a hair ‘veiling’ ingredient, ASIENCE’s advanced Moisture-Lock Complex retains moisture to give long-lasting smoothness and manageability.
Here's how to help you decide what's best for your hair:
Asience's Leave-On Treatment Water: For tangled and untamed hair.
Asience's Leave-On Treatment Milk: For dry and frizzy hair.
Asience's Leave-On Treatment Oil: For severely dry and damaged hair.
#1: Review of Asience's Leave-On Treatment Milk (100ml)
Singapore's humid weather is a pain. I could go out with silky-smooth hair and be ridden with rough, frizzy hair by the end of a long working day. So what I do is I bring the Asience's Leave-On Treatment Milk with me to work to soothe the crazed up frizz.
Nourishing yet non-greasy, I love how soft it makes my hair feel. Non-sticky formula means I don't have to go wash my hands after applying as well!
#2: Review of Asience's Leave-On Treatment Oil (28ml)
Concentrated yet non-oily, it intensively repairs and retains moisture to keep hair glossy and healthy.
I love the size of this. I bring this with me on my holidays! No need to check in too Another reason why I prefer this as a travel companion and for very bad hair days is that this is really good in taming my tresses. You know how when we travel, we aren't always able to bring our favourite shampoo/conditioner along and the weather's all different. All these gives stress to our hair and sometimes frizzes it right up.
That'll be where the Asience's Leave-On Treatment Oil will come in!
#3: Review of Asience's Leave-On Treatment Water (28ml)
I honestly don't seem to see much effect other than wetting my hair but when it's dry, it seems to go back to what it always is. However, I really love how easy it is to apply this. Just spritz here there, everywhere, pat my hair and off I go. I use this like a protective layer against the outdoor elements before I head out!
ASIENCE Leave-On Treatment Milk (100ml) – Nourishing yet non-greasy, it instantly repairs and retains moisture to keep hair beautifully soft and healthy.
ASIENCE Leave-On Treatment Water (200ml) – Light as water, it instantly repairs and retains moisture without weighing your hair down.
ASIENCE Leave-On Treatment range retails at $14.90 and is available from April’2013 at selected hypermarkets, supermarkets and pharmacies.
