I MADE IT TO JAIPUR!

I MADE IT TO JAIPUR!

I finally checked list off one of the dreamiest country in the world, Jaipur. Before I share with you guys the full itinerary, I would like to highlight this special resort we stayed at Alila Fort Bishangarh.  Though it's an hour drive from Jaipur, but it is worth the journey. We booked a private airport charter via Klook. We were so glad we made all the travel arrangement including transportation and tours activities booked earlier with Klook, saving up so much time for us. 

Alila Fort Bishangarh is a special place, filled with marble floor, stone walls and 230 years of extensive history. In a region filled with palaces and historic forts, it is the only warrior fort that has been converted into a resort. With the 59 suites, each has a spectacular views of the valley and feature 22 unique layouts. You might get lost trying to figure out the way in the resort. Down the hill from the Fort features courtyard, swimming pool and terraces as well as the gym and Teen Soldiers Play Club.

 We took a camel ride to visit the villages nearby and did a 1.5 morning hike to Aravali Hill overlooking our resort.  
 

We spent a 3 days 2 nights in Alila before beginning our touristy activities. If you prefer a relaxing holiday kind of person (not those everyday wake up at 7am to checklist all the touristy spots), you will definitely enjoy our itinerary.  
Stay tune for my next post for a full itinerary covering Jaipur city and Taj Mahal.

When it comes to skincare, keep my skin hydrated and plum has always been my no.1 priority. 
Recently I got my hands on Dr. Wu HYALUCOMPLEX Hydrating System products and I'm falling in love on how light-weight and skin-friendly they are. 

 Target for dehydrated and sensitive skin type, the fifth-generation HYALUCOMPLEX Hydrating System utilizes the revolutionary HYALUCOMPLEX - the perfect combination of hyaluronic acid in high and low molecular weights. It basically means the new formula helps to achieve long-lasting hydrating effects and gives a glowing complexion all the time. 

There are major 3 steps for this HYALUCOMPLEX Hydrating System series. 
STEP 1: Cleanse & Toner
The Hydrating Gel Cleanser contains intensive, non-irritating hydrating formula that is gentle and pH-balanced. It locks in plenty of moisture while cleansing. Hence, you wouldn't feel the tightness as compared to some cleanser on the market. 
The Intensive Hydrating Toner contains high concentration of hydrating essence, helps to repair and restore smoothness and softness of the dehydrated skin. 



STEP 2: Serum / Mask
The Intensive Hydrating Serum promotes all-round skin revitalization and accelerates metabolism to restore smooth and glowing skin. I use it for day and night. Don't worry about its richness. It's so light-weight that is suitable to use during the day time as well. If you think you need a instant hydration boost, Dr. Wu's Extreme Hydrate Bio-Cellulose Mask is the easy-way-out. 

STEP 3: Lotion/Gel Moisturizer 
I use Extra Hydrating Lotion during the day as it has a mild formula to lock in hydration and maintaining long lasting effects during the day. If you are in a rush, I would suggest you to use the Intensive Hydrating Gel (skipping the serum) as it is an all-in-one time-minimising skincare concept. The gel formula is mild and easily to absorb into our skin. Its anti-aging and skin defense benefits is maximized with the finest scutellarein extracts from the Alps combined with green algae extracts from tidal zones. 

On the side, I always love using Hydrating Glacier Water Mist. It is so multifunctional. You can use it as a moisturizer before applying makeup, a setting formula after applying makeup, a primer for other beauty products, a facial skincare mask, or a calming moisturizer on standby at all time. I just wish Dr. Wu can consider to come out with travel size :p

If you ask me about any skincare tips, I would say always focus on hydration as it's the based of everything. 

Let me know what your skin concern on the comments below, I will try to help by sharing my own experiences.

Months ago when H&M launched its annual Conscious Exclusive Collection, I was lucky to be invited to Shanghai to experience the launch and met the creative advisor at H&M, Ann-Sofie Johansson to speak a little more about the collection. 

During the launch event, we learnt about the history of the Conscious Exclusive Collections and the innovation of recycled materials that have been used and created during the journey. 



Anne took her time out to talk sustainability, challenges, and future goals. 

WHAT INSPIRED THIS COLLECTION?
The team's catalyst of this year's lineup was the artful home, life and work of Carl and Karin Larsson. Carl is one of Sweden's most famous artist, known for his intimate and idyllic - depictions of his family's life in the country at Sundborn. After the couple married, Karin gave up her easels and canvases to raise their family, and channelled her creativity into decorating her home. She made furniture (remade, repaint), clothing for her family. 

DESCRIBE THE COLLECTION IN 3 WORDS?
Beautiful, versatile and sustainable. 

HOW LONG IT TAKES TO DEVELOP THE RECYCLED MATERIAL?
Fabric sometimes can take years to develop. But H&M now have a long list of sustainable materials that can be used like recycled polyester, recycled glass, recycled plastic, recycled wool, organic linen, just to name a few. This year, we are so happy to introduce two new sustainable materials, recycled silver and ECONYL®, a 100% regenerated nylon fibre from fishnets and other nylon waste, into this collection. Innovation is the key. As some of the materials are not doable to make great clothes right now in mass production but perhaps in the future. For instance, orange fibre is an example of recycled source. 

WHAT LEGACY DOES H&M CONSCIOUS WANT TO LEAVE BEHIND?
Inspire and engage people. We hope to create more awareness of sustainability and make it affordable to the mass. We are also looking to use technology to make it more sustainable. For instance, using VR to do fitting and make changes more instantly instead of creating tons of sample clothes.

Shanghai, you have been amazing. 
Till next time.
