How To Get the Best Shave Ever

HOW TO GET THE BEST SHAVE EVER

In partnership with EOS, a little how-to guide touching upon the often overlooked details that really makes a difference when it comes to getting that perfect shave.

1. Find Your Unicorn in the Sea of Products

Shaving cream: Find a good one! By good I mean something that is moisturizing, fragrance free, and does not contain harsh chemicals. Lucky for you guys I have the perfect recommendation that fulfills all of these criteria: the new EOS Sensitive Shave Cream.

Razor: Make sure you are using a sharp one by replacing your razor blade at the first sign of dullness. Usually this happens between 5-10 shaves. If you keep having to go over an area more than once, it is a telltale sign that it’s time to let go. Buy razors in multi-packs so there’s always a new one ready for your rescue!

Quick tip: Don’t leave your razor in the shower. It is a war zone where bacteria and rust runs rampant.

2. DESTROY All Dead Skin Cells

Open up and soften your hair follicles by taking a bath or shower. Make sure to lather up and really exfoliate by scrubbing the areas you are going to shave with a loofah, brush, or scrub. This will prevent dead skin cells from clogging up your razor and getting in the way.

3. Less is More, Approach Gently

Pressure does not make for a closer shave. Pushing the razor harder against your skin will likely result in more irritation. If you have followed steps 1-2 above, your razor should be able to glide through effortlessly and give you a smooth and easy shave.

4. Moisturize

Rinse off any residue. Then proceed to apply an unscented lotion to the shaved areas. This creates a barrier and covers your newly shaven and exposed hair follicles. Over-drying of the skin can lead to many skin irritation symptoms so prevention is the best protection.

There you have it! Some quick little tips to use in combination with the new EOS Sensitive Shave Cream to get the perfect silky smooth legs.

Eos Sensitive Shave

eos1Oh, the glorious routine of shaving… By glorious I mean dreadful. If you didn’t already catch the sarcasm dripping from my use of that adjective 😉 I mean, who likes shaving right? Necessary evil. Getting rid of all those pesky hairs just to have them rear their ugly heads back through your leg follicles. It’s like they’re daring any hand to graze your leg just so they can rebuttal with their angry little scratches.

But… we, as humans, are the masters of our leg hairs. Therefore we shave. I, for one, have very dry skin. Probably from not drinking enough water and being too lazy to use lotion regularly. Changing my sloth-like ways would involve a lot of self discipline, which I have very limited supplies of. Also many shaving cream products on the market contain harsh ingredients and irritating fragrances. Who’s going to sniff my legs after I’m done shaving and appreciate that it smells like fruits or flowers?

All of these factors lead to me experiencing razor burn. Sometimes I even accidentally add an artistic flair to my legs. With some oh so charming & highly desirable nicks and cuts. Har har!

Jokes aside, this is why I am so excited to partner with EOS to try out their new Sensitive Shave Cream. I’ve been a fan of their quirky ball-shaped lip-balms growing up so it’s always wonderful to be able to work with a company that I know and love.

I am very impressed with this shave cream. My razor glides through smoothly and viola! I am done and left wondering where the familiar sting of razor burn is. My legs feels silky smooth and the routine of shaving doesn’t feel so dreadful after all. I feel clean and hairless and happy to do it again and again. Because I know I’ll have to anyway.

My 24 Hours

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Everybody in the world has 24 hours every day and an infinite amount of ways to spend that time. Life is filled with endless options and different decisions can lead to wildly different outcomes. Somehow all of my decisions has led me into the direction of being a digital influencer.

It’s definitely a new-age media career option that almost seems like it sprung up out of nowhere. The industry is still new and I was lucky enough to enter near the start of its infancy and grow alongside with it. Thus, I was able to find a way to make a living doing what I love, which is content creation.

However with anything new, it often comes without a rulebook. Trial and error takes main precedent so I often find myself a little all over the place. Not having a 9 to 5 and designing my own schedule is a recipe for both glory and disaster. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

So what do I normally do with my 24 hours in a day? Find out by reading the full post on thefashionspot.com.

Angkor Village Resort

11

On my quick little excursion to Siem Reap, Cambodia in order to visit the infamous Angkor Wat, we stayed at the lovely Angkor Village Resort. This lush green luxury resort is just a short 13 minute tuk tuk ride to the temples of Angkor. It was the perfect place to relax after exploring the temples which necessitates climbing many stairs in the hot sun. Exhausting, but totally worth it 😉

We stayed in newly built Henri Marchal Suite. It was named after a French architect and archaeologist who had lived on this land and was involved in the conservation and restoration of Angkor. When we first saw our room, I was astonished at the sight because it is literally a GIANT TREEHOUSE! I always loved the idea of treehouses but have never been in one. Needless to say I was thrilled because I think this may be one of the coolest treehouse in existence!

The room was expansive including a large living room, master bedroom, secondary bedroom with two twin beds, a balcony, and the most beautiful bathroom I’ve ever set foot in. There is also a complimentary room service breakfast with a delicious selection of western and local cuisine. The whole resort is surrounded by a lush tropical garden so it was very calming to just stroll around and explore the grounds. We heard music outside on one of the nights so we followed the sound and found a live band playing the classics at the on-site restaurant/lounge.

Whenever I want to go relax at a hotel pool, I’m always secretly hoping that it would not be crowded. It’s definitely not an issue here at all. My favorite feature of this resort is their 250 meter river shaped swimming pool that runs along the property so there is plenty of room for everyone and you can easily find total seclusion if that’s your preference. There are canoes you can travel along the pool with and you’ll also find a friendly worker rowing around on one offering a mini bar service!

Overall, my stay at Angkor Village Resort was nothing short of amazing and I’m so lucky and glad to have it as a very memorable experience on my first trip to the Kingdom of Cambodia.

The Siam Hotel

DSC05744.jpg

The Siam Hotel is a fascinating work of art. It is a hidden escape conveniently located in the city of Bangkok, Thailand. I remember entering the lobby and feeling immediately drawn to the space and curious about everything around me. It’s one of those places that is incredibly pleasing to the eye everywhere you look. It easily captures your interest because there’s so much to find within the details of this Art Deco/Thai antique infused property.

The Siam is designed by internationally acclaimed architect, Bill Bensley, which explains why everything comes together so harmoniously. There is a lot going on with different textures, shapes, objects, and plants. It easy to get clustered when there are a lot of details filling up a space but nothing feels out of place and it’s all one big perfect curation. It’s easy to wander and get happily lost while exploring this hotel. Antiques can be found at every corner and I often find myself stopping to admire something along my path.

We had a very warm welcome and even our own butler who kindly showed us to our room and helped us with everything we needed. My favorite part about the room was the high ceilings and I even enjoyed a relaxing night time bath. The food was simply amazing. The breakfast buffet has cold or room temperature items to pick and choose from. But everything hot was made to order.

Aside from the regular hotel features you would also find elsewhere such as the spa, bar, pool, restaurants, library/cinema, gift shop, etc, The Siam offers the unique experiences of a cooking class, Muay Thai boxing, Sak Yant tattooing, and a sunset cruise on the river. I think it’s safe to say that it’s very hard to get bored here. However if you want to leave to explore a little more of Bangkok, there is a shuttle boat service between the hotel and Bangkok’s central Sathorn pier.

There’s so much rich history and culture in Thailand, I really admired how this place pays a tribute to that. My stay here was short and sweet so we didn’t have that much time to explore as much of the hotel as I would have liked. Therefore I included some photos at the end of this blogpost from The Siam’s image library because it’s such an amazing space and I feel as though my photos aren’t enough to do it justice 😉

Sri Panwa

DSC03287

The island of Phuket, Thailand has a beautiful rural landscape due to much of its natural terrain remaining untouched. Amy and I were lucky enough to find ourselves at Sri Panwa, one of Phuket’s top luxury resorts. The entrance is located right along the coastline, next to calm streets that were lined with the cutest little shops, restaurants, and a night market. The resort itself stretches across 40 acres and is hidden within the lush surrounding trees. Walking around it might get a bit tiring so luckily the resort offers a 24/7 tuk tuk ride service that is just a phone call away to go anywhere within in the resort. I took my first Tuk Tuk ride ever here and it was certainly not the last 😉

The theme of Sri Panwa is very wooden with pops of yellow adding to the beautiful warm tones and serenity of the space. I fell in love with our penthouse. Really, I could stay there all day and be perfectly happy relaxing in such a lovely environment. A very interesting thing about it was the different mood lighting options. It’s the perfect place for a getaway with a lover and I feel like you can have so much fun here! Ambiance is everything! There were five different settings, we tested all of them, but the two I remembered was “sexy” & “romantic” 😉

To top it off, we had an infinity pool with a gorgeous view of the water and the neighboring islands right outside of our balcony. We definitely took advantage of that and did quite of bit of swimming. Long chats with good friends are even better in a secluded place with an amazing view.

Within the resort you can also visit the spa, pool, different restaurants, bars, and the private beach. At the beach, there’s a white floating dock that leads far out into the water and it’s the perfect place for a photo opp. We even got the chance to go kayaking!

Overall our stay was amazing, the staff was so kind, and I left here with very happy memories of my short visit to Phuket.

Sofitel Sentosa Resort & Spa

DSC02851

My first stop in Singapore with Amy was at Sofitel Sentosa Resort & Spa. We arrived in the middle of the night around 3AM and I remember being fascinated at how elegant the lobby looked in the dim gold lighting. We were able to check into our room swiftly. Upon arrival, we found a little note card and some cupcakes… however we were taken aback when found our faces on them! Needless to say I was so thrilled at the very personal touch to our welcome.

 

Sofitel Sentosa is located on an island resort off Singapore’s southern coast. However we had no trouble getting there and it was quite close to the city. If I remember correctly it only takes about 20 minutes. Our local photographer friend Zippy (who helped us take some of these photos) told us that Singapore is small and you can get from one side of town to the other in just 1 hour! I was in love with this resort and found it to be the perfect hideaway to recoup after a long day of exploring the city.

The hotel is decorated beautifully with a wood and gold theme. It reminds me of the 1920s and specifically the style of “The Great Gatsby”. There’s a charming luxurious old-school feel about this place. A notable feature of this resort are its peacock inhabitants. You can find many of them roaming around and simply minding their own business. We met a friendly little fella who hung out in our balcony for half an hour. And I was lucky enough to see one spread it’s feathers. It was such an amazing sight to behold! Click to see it live in my snapchat stories collection.

 

My absolute favorite part about this resort is the complimentary Fish Therapy Spa located right next to the bar. At first I thought it was just a sitting area for hotel guests to relax and dip their feet in the water. I passed by many times and thought it was a little strange that there was always people there. But I did not recognize this magnificent area for what it is until the morning we were leaving!! Haha but I am very grateful that I got to experience this for the first time here.

Swarms of fish will come nibble away the dead skin cells of your feet. It’s a very strange and tickling sensation at first and then it becomes a relaxing buzz. It’s very nice just to look at the fish and have an exchange where you’re mutually helping each other.

Lastly there is a long pathway that leads right down to the beach. Altogether Sofitel Sentosa was the perfect place for rest and relaxation. And oh, Universal Studios is located right next to it 😉
