5 must-have 2015 skincare and makeup holiday collaborations


 2015 holiday beauty collaborations Kiehl's Peter Max

4 hair mists to keep your hair smelling great throughout the day

I live near a particularly popular food centre that’s jam-packed every weekend because the food is famous. Despite this, I never eat there, the primary reason being the smell. It has a fairly low roof and the fumes from all the hawker stalls linger thickly in the air. Step in for all of 30 seconds and you’ll begin to smell like the place (and will continue to smell like it long after). 

Every time a friend comes to stay they want to eat there, and I have to remind myself not to wash my hair beforehand because I’ll have to wash it after.
