Part 3 of the Girly Staycation episodes!

Needless to say, after the makeover, all of us played dress me up!

We had a few blogshops that sponsored us clothes and accessories. Really pretty items!

So this entry is to thank the sponsors!

Pretty rose bracelet from Mynt!

Sweet kitty necklace from Wenya Designs who had previously advertised on my blog before!

The Elstarade Collection. Very unique open shoulder maxi 🙂

The Urban Bangs Collection: Paired my maxi with a H&M Inspired Cardigan. Very comfy!

The Milly Walker Collection: While the Syshe Shift Dress is very flattering with a  sexy back, the dress is a bit see through. I went with nipple tape and all the girls could see the tape. Errr, not sure if nu-bra will work though. I love Esther's Harel Pearl Dress though!

The Vanilla Lollies Collection: One of my personal faves. I love the dresses that the other grils were wearing! Super flattering! Sabrina and I chose the DKNY inspired dress in Light Pink!

The Miuee Collection: Super duper flattering black dress for me. <3 <3 <3

Am pretty pleased by the items. Which do you think flatters me the most?

We were all dressed up and we had plans for dinner and activities after that. Check out the next entry for Part 4!

Part 2 of the Girly Staycation entries!

Remember I asked you to guess why our room was so messy?

It was because we had mini makeovers, played dressed up and had a manicure session!

We all brought our makeup sets over. I had brought over 8 Majolica Majorca eyeshadow palettes amongst other Majolica Majorca goodies. Jacelyn and Fidelis also brought some of their Ettusais stuff too!

Some pictures of the session!

We girls really had fun! Sweet Jacelyn helped Sabrina and I with our untidy brows and Fidel gave Sab a makeover!

My unglam face while putting on makeup!

My final look!

I had told Esther about a marbling technique for the nails and she was so intrigued about it then she decided to do it for us during the staycation!

Some pics!

First paint a base colour..

Drip a few colours in sequence. E.g. Drip white, then pink then purple then white again, pink and purple.

Then using a stick (or a pin in our case), draw a line.

Dip your finger in.

By right, you should have used tape to paste around your nail bed so that it won't stain your fingers. Marbling is really a messy affair! Way easier to just pop by to Milly's for a manicure! :p

We took a crazy loads of pictures that day because I brought a Canon Selphy Photo Printer!

Absolutely adore the G11, I influenced Jacelyn to get one too! Muahahahaaa. It's a great cawhore camera!

We played dress up too! Check out the next entry for pics!

When I first said I was going for a staycation with the bf then, everyone was asking me what staycation meant. It seemed then that the term staycation was pretty much unheard of. Laoniang enlightened a lot of people okay!

And if you are still wondering what's a staycation, it's basically have a vacation without traveling anywhere. A vacation staying put!

The bf and I had two staycations so far, once at Wanderlust for his birthday and the other at Rendezvous Hotel where I did the Biore and Whisper sponsored reviews! (Note to self: to blog about Rendezvous soon.)

I came up with the idea of a girls staycation with the girls to basically have a sleepover, play dress up, go clubbing and just bond!. Checked with Esther, Sabrina, Fidelis and Jacelyn and they were game. Hooray for spontaneous girlfriends! <3

Much love to both Esther and Jacelyn for recee-ing the hotels. With their expert recommendations, we chose Quincy Hotel.

Quincy Hotel is located fairly near Orchard Road. It's actually located beside Elizabeth Hotel, which is the place where Arsenal supporters hang out at during Arsenal matches. Heard from my siao on Arsenal fans. Hurhur.

Honestly, the location isn't fantastic. Cabdrivers seem to not recognise the address and poor Sabrina had trouble with parking. Nonetheless, the service at Quincy was good at least. 🙂

The rooms cost about S$358+++ usually however there was a weekend promo and it turned out to be $268+++ instead. Not too bad.

Some pics around the hotel.

Here are some pictures of the room.

Similar to Wanderlust Hotel, Quincy offers an iPod dock and free drinks.

Plus points: We had a free bottle of red wine (which we did not drink. hurhur) and some snacks!

My outfit for the staycation?

A pretty pink outfit which had sweet white ribbons on them.

If you thought it was a maxi, you are so wrong! Very very comfy outfit. Loving sponsored by TheBlogShop of course. 🙂

I think the bathtub was used most to wash our feet. Hurhur.

See what happened to our room after 5 messy girls checked in!

If you're wondering why it became so messy, check out the next post. Coming soon! :")

It was hard waking up for breakfast. Both of us did think of skipping breakfast and sleeping in. After all, we did crawl back "home" at 5am in the morning.

However, I managed to summon some willpower and FORCED myself to wake up. And yes, I had to kick the birthday boy out of bed to get up.

The package we took had breakfast included.

4 days of celebration - The pre-celebration

I had originally told the bf that we were going to stay over at my place as my parents were not in Singapore. That was the only way to get him to pack his barangs barangs over without being suspicious!

I had told him I would be going to AMK to collect some spree items and that I will fetch him at his place and we would head to my place.

Got a cab and fetched him. I had conspired with the taxi driver earlier and told him to not mention the venue or say anything till the bf has worn the headphones and blindfolds. hurhur.

Kidnapped!

Pardon the makeupless face.

You know what?! The boy knew we weren't headed to my place because he could feel the taxi turning a different direction than how it would have gone if it were heading to my place.

WTF.

Soon we arrived at Dickson Road. As ching chong boy have never heard of Wanderlust Hotel before, he thought we were there for either food. He gave me a suspicious look as there was a Hotel81 opposite Wanderlust.

-_______-"

Later when I told him we were going to Wanderlust for a staycation, he was so shocked. Heh. Yay. Success!

Pictures of Wanderlust here:

Love the decor!

We were hungry and decided to go to the nearby coffee shop. First time trying chicken rice balls. Damn shiokkers!

After lunch, we were given a tour of the other rooms. So chio! Wonder when am I able to stay in the other rooms!

Pity the boy didn't bring his swimming trunks else we could have tried the outdoor jacuzzi!

Finally went to our room!

The room was fantastic! Some pictures of the room. Thanks Michelle for helping with the reservation! Much love! <3

The room comes with free drinks! Awesome!

Even comes with a Nespresso machine. The bf was in heaven.

He would happily sip his nespresso every now and then. I don't drink coffee at all so I really couldn't understand his utter delight.

That shiok ah?

We got ready and dressed up for dinner!

methinks i need a new hair colour.

Can you spot someone in the background doing his hair? :p the bf isn't too happy with his haircut.

Outfit of the day: Black toga from $28 shop in Citylink, leggings and black heels.

with the birthday boy!

Heh. The silly boy wanted to climb the stairs!

Outfit of the day pic outside the hotel.

And we were off for dinner! Check out the next post for updates! All pictures were taken with the G11!
