Red Hair Colour , L’Oréal color - Sweet Bunny

For 2019 I wanted to get a fresh new look.

After watching the Aquaman movie I was in awe of Mera's gorgeous red hair and decided to give a shot. The last time I dyed my hair that colour was ages ago back in the early 2000s… 10 years later, I have to say that hair chemicals has improved… Hair is no longer grass dry and damaged after being dyed. 

Hair colour that won't break the office dress code- Don't get me wrong I love the vibrant red of Mera's hair but it is was a little loud for me, not appropriate for a front line day job as I have to uphold a corporate image. I asked Ken my trusty hair stylist for a recommendation from the colour chart and he picked a lighter shade that would be more obvious under the light, a peek-a-boo kind of shade that was not so obvious.



Hair colour for skin tone – It is important to know your skin tone to match your hair shade, you would want your skin and hair to complement each other. I have warm tanned skin and the red shade gives me a pop of colour.

If you are unsure of what your skin tone is.  Check out this quiz I found by https://www.vixendaily.com, it is pretty accurate:

They also have a whole series of quizzes you could do to truly find out which shades and would matches your skin the most.


Red hair is great for all ages – There is so much you can do with red highlights and dyes, different hues from burgundy to orange, copper, ginger and bronze which easily give you that extra dimension to your hair from the otherwise flat look. The possibilities are endless just ensure that it suits your skin tone.

Red dyed hair care – It is normal to experience some bleeding of the hair colour for the first couple of washes, especially for dark bold or vivid colours like blue or red, due to the porosity of the hair or unsuitability of the hair dye. I was advised to wash my hair every 2 days and after my fourth wash, my hair colour has stopped bleeding.

Conclusion on my hair dye job – I dyed my hair brown last August and I am glad that the new red did not fuse to the brown; I once read in a magazine that hair colour fusing is possible. Ken is indeed very skilled he, at the start of every appointment he would study my hair and ask questions on when my last dye job was and if I used any other products before working on my hair. I love my new hair colour it gave my hair a new lease of life, I look refreshed and ready to go, Cheers to kicking off 2019 with a bang!

Where to buy affordable engagement rings & wedding bands in Singapore - Sweet Bunny

If you are one who holds practicality over prestige, getting a bang for our buck for a reasonably priced yet quality ring is the ultimate goal for every gent's mind when it comes to popping the question.

In my case, I went along with my fiancé to purchase m engagement ring, I didn't want anything too huge or fancy because less is more isn't it? A tiny simple diamond was all I wanted, something that could be worn daily without the hassle or worry that gems would drop off etc.

Why we chose to get a Forever Mark engagement ring -Forever Mark came to mind because I really like the simplistic design of the solitary rings, the brand does promises each diamond is of great quality solitary rings and I love how m diamond sparkle and am glad it didn't cost a bomb either. We purchased a 0.2-carat diamond from Lee Hwa Causeway Point branch, just the way I like it tiny but practical and I am able to wear this ring as daily wear without the worry of attracting unwanted attention. There is even an option to trade in the ring for another Forever Mark ring; I felt that it was an excellent privilege.

Malls with a selection of boutique jewellery shops- I found that the malls such as Cause WayPoint and Bugis Junction had a wider selection of jewellery retailers located in their premises.

Causeway Point best place to shop for boutique jewellery-I found that causeway point was an excellent place to purchase jewellery, the boutiques are not massive they each have a good selection of jewellery bigger is not necessarily better, it can be overwhelming when you are spoiled for choice. Jewellery found at causeway point includes Goldheart, Lee Hwa, Poh Heng, SK Jewellery, Tian Poh all conveniently located at the same level so one trip of window shopping you would be able to roughly decide which store could cater to your taste.

Bugis Junction wide variety of boutique jewellers - SK stellar, Venus Tears, Lee Hwa, Meyson, SK gold, Goldheart, and Citigems. I found that the selection at Bugis was extensive, I somehow found it more stylish than jewellery located in the heartlands. I did go for a round of window shopping just to have an idea of what is available.

On the same day we purchased our wedding bands as well, here is a couple of factors we considered before making our choice:

Metal choices for wedding bands – We preferred white gold or platinum for our wedding bands, rather than yellow gold which is more valuable. A simple silver coloured band was what we were after. Previously platinum was stronger than and more malleable than white gold but it is common practice now to mix white gold with other alloys such as palladium to make it stronger. Both Platinum and white gold rings are of around the same pricing because a larger amount of platinum is required for one ring to give it the extra weight that gold has. I am not an expert in jewellery but I have worked with gold in the dental line previously. I understand what works go into working with gold and platinum.

Venus Tears Rings

Venus Tears best jewellery shop for wedding bands - I wanted a ring engraved with flowers and Sam wanted one which was simple with a touch of gold because his parents were on the more traditional side. I found the perfect pair at Venus Tears website, they have a range of elegant and simple wedding bands made of platinum. All rings are made to order and manufactured in Japan, The whole process was seamless and customer service at the Jem branch was top notch. I would definitely recommend Venus Tears to others.

When to give up long locks - Sweet Bunny

I just snipped off my long locks of hair... Are you crazy you are getting married next year, what a waste! Was my colleague’s reaction at work..

Well ... I rather have healthy hair then long damaged, filled with split ends ... Earlier on this year, I was a hair model for my friend's hair styling exam and assisted with perming and rebonding my hair within a week, not advised highly damaging but totally worth it because my friend passed with flying colours.

The health of your hair affects its radiance so look out for these tell tales signs for unhealthy hair which requires trimming:

Knotted and tangled hair - While brushing your hair if you noticed many knots and tangles, it is time to go for a trim, instead of using a comb to forcefully unknot and detangle your hair which may cause breakage to the hair.

Get rid of split ends – split ends are never a pretty sight and worst they can break faster as the splits travel up the hair strands to the scalp, split hair appears translucent, weak and thin compared to regular healthy hair. Spite ends are easily detected because usually the tip of the hair has white bulbs on them. Hence snipping off these the ends could really salvage your hair.

When your hair is flat – Lack of volume and not the usual structure your hair usually is? Schedule a trim to give your hair that extra lively bounce.

If you frequently colour your hair – an indicator that your hair suffers from hair damage is the colour not being able to hold and fades, it loses its elasticity and easily snaps or breaks when wet. Highlighting and bleaching cause the most damage to the ends of your hair bearing in mind that the ends of your hair are the oldest part and the most fragile.


Heat damaged hair – Blow drying and styling of hair can cause heat damage from constant usage of hair irons and curlers contributing to lifeless hair. Having fizziness and static looking hair is also another indication to get a trim. Deep conditioning and limiting usage of hair iron and curlers helps prevents heat damage.

What if I do not want to trim my hair – You could always approach your stylist for treatments for your hair it helps but does not resolve split ends.

The length of my hair is now shorter but I am glad that it is to be bouncy, shiny and healthy before it was rigged with split ends with white bulbs appearing at the ends of my hair from heat damage. I do miss my long hair but the consolation is hair always grows back. So do head over to the salon to get that trim every few months? It also does wonders if your layered hair becomes uneven and untidy.
