What a wonderful day spent at Pacific Plaza on a Monday!
I woke up and headed straight to Pacific Plaza for my day of beauty treatments and shopping. First up, my manicure at Christine Nail Salon!
Christine Nail Salon, #03-16
If it were up to me, I would start every day with a manicure. Because, why not! It was just the perfect way to start my Monday morning.
Getting my nails filed and buffed. It’s been almost two months since my last manicure. Due time!
Love that they had a huge selection of colours to choose from, which is not typical of gel nail polish. And brands! They even had a range of products that were free of formaldehyde.
The girls were all very smiley and so helpful and they even picked out the perfect nail colour for me! We decided on a glitter pink to match my blue tweed dress and a little sparkly ribbon bow to top it off.
The final touches… Putting on the ribbon bow. Thank you Christine!
The Prestige Eyebrow and Lash Specialist, #03-08
Getting my eyelashes permed for the first time! I usually do extensions for my lashes but they do cause them to fall out so I thought I would try out a perm this time round.
I was initially quite worried about the experience because it was my first time perming my eyelashes and I didn’t know what to expect. As it turns out, it was not the least bit uncomfortable! It didn’t hurt at all and the technician was extremely gentle and comforting as she told me exactly what she was doing. I was told not to open my eyes throughout the process and it helped that she talked me through it.
It was just like waking up to beautiful lashes after a nice nap! They’re not exactly longer but they definitely look longer. A great way to spruce up your lashes especially if you have dead straight lashes like me.
Here you go! The final result sans mascara!
With mascara, they look just as pretty and dolly as if I had fake lashes on. Five minutes with my mascara and I’m out of the house!

Next up… Some Christmas shopping at Quintessential.
I have been here in this shop a couple of times but I never got to talk to the owners. This time I did, and actually found out that they actually have their own line of bags and jewellery designed by them! The ladies at the store were extremely helpful and actually spoke to me and talked to me more about my style preferences. They then recommended what they thought would suit me!
This line of bags is actually named Clutch Me by Q and was designed by the owners themselves. A great selection of exotic skins! My favourite.
They have python…
And even hand-sewn beads!
My favourite of all, and their latest design, has got to be the calf hair tote. It’s not as exotic as python or lizard, but it’s definitely unique and eye-catching!
And sequin Emoji bags!
How cute are they!
They also have a huge range of jewellery made from raw and unpolished semi-precious stones that they also designed themselves that is elegantly named Stoned by Q.
Beautiful pieces… There is just something so luxurious and yet understated about raw and unpolished semi-precious stones.
Don’t you think!
What is most amazing about the bags and jewellery at Quintessential is how amazingly affordable they are. Most of the bags were priced below $250 and the jewellery pieces below $100. They are an absolute steal for how beautiful and exquisite they are!
True Yoga, #04-01
After all that shopping getting my heart rate up it was time for yoga! I have to say… My day started off amazing and it just kept getting better!
True Yoga’s first center was opened in Pacific Plaza at Scotts Road in November 2004. Spanning 13,000 square feet, the Pacific Plaza center is a tranquil oasis in the heart of Singapore’s shopping district offering a retreat from the stress of modern life. The Pacific Plaza center boasts 7 spacious studios and offers over 200 classes weekly with over 30 different types of Yoga, Hot Yoga, Pilates and Dance classes!
I attended the Groundwork1 class, which is traditionally the foundation of all ‘styles’ of yoga and helps you to form the pillars of your practice, with an emphasis on developing strength and stability. Groundwork1 also helps to improve muscular endurance, cardiovascular fitness, and focuses on working towards a healthy body composition.
I can’t say that I was actually able to keep up with the class being a beginner yogi as this was an intermediate class but it was great fun while it lasted. I felt a lot more calm and focused after all that walking around and shopping.
Chrysalis Spa, #03-13
After my long day of shopping and beauty treatments and yoga, it was time to wind down with a relaxing facial at Chrysalis Spa! What a great life!
Getting served tea upon walking in and feeling like a total princess after being pampered left and right all day.
I was then asked to fill in a form for them to understand more about my skin type and condition so as to provide me with a more customized experience. They were also super helpful when I told them that I needed to take some photos for this blog post.
A photo before the start of my facial… After that, I completely fell asleep during the facial because of how comforting the scents were. The products that they used on me smelled amazing, and so was the neck and shoulder massage.
And that was the end of my beauty trail at Pacific Plaza, which was an amazing six hours of being treated like a queen. A great place to refresh yourself as a woman and Christmas shopping for sure!
