Have you ever seen your photo moved? It’s called Cinemagraph

I have an interesting thing to share this week, its called Cinemagraph.

Cinemagraphs are more than a picture, but not quite a video. Their main goal is to visually illustrate a short story.

It’s nothing impressive on technique but what makes cinemagraph unique is it brings back certain part of the photo to life. Making the entire photo more realistic and attractive.

The process takes many hours of manual editing.
The more complex ones take an entire day to pull together.

Look, my pants have a sublte movements as well

Anyone who are interested to do their own cinemagraph for their own advertising or for their personal works drop me a mail at info@shiella.com

Homemade Beauty Regime : Pure honey facial mask

Homemade Beauty Regime : Pure honey facial mask

Application of facial masks is a must for me, It helps to open our pores in the skin and removes the dirt and grit inside the skin and close it thereafter, glowing skin is a very big asset especially in every women’s beauty.
If one’s skin is glowing it gives an elegant looked. The best and inexpensive facial mask is made of a pure honey!:)
Honey offers incredible antiseptic, antioxidant and cleansing properties for our Beauty, Body and Health. Some people preferred to use honey over sugar to their sweetener.
If i had my sore throat or cough its been very effective to me as a soothing agent. Honey fights infection, aids tissue and helps reduce inflammation.
There’s a lot of benefits that we can get to a Pure Honey. Now, I want to share this skin care tips for all the ladies.

How to use honey as a facial mask?

-Make sure you have a clean face before applying. Wash your face with a lukewarm water, to open your pores and apply a layer of honey on your face.

-Let it stay for 15-20mins.

-Wash your face with cold water to close your pores. Pat it dry and you may apply your toner and followed by moisturizer.

Isn’t as simple as 1-2-3.. You just have to be patience of doing this regularly and you will see a visibly result within a week!
If you desired to add some scents, you can add some almond oil, lavender oil as you desired.

Just a reminder of buying a honey, please check the labels if it is a pure honey.Because there are some brands who labeled their product as a pure honey but actually they added lots of brown sugars to make it looks honey. Look for organic honey.

Thunderbird Resort – Poro Point La Union

 Thunderbird Resort - Poro Point San Fernando La Union, Philippines
One of my bucket list this summer is to visit one of the famous resort in Philippines the ‘Thunderbird Resort at Poro Point San Fernando La Union’. Famous for its mediterranean structural design or the ‘Santorini, Greece style’. We wanted to stay here for atleast 3days. Unfortunately all rooms and villa is fully booked till august. So, we end up 2days to stay at the hotel. After we settled our luggages in our room, We didn’t waste time and started to walk around. The place has a really nice and spacious view though the swimming pool is suitable only for children. I was expecting for a five star hotel to have a separate pool for adults.
As we walked down to the beach, we are planning to do some water sports like kayak but its unavailable because all are taken and they only have 2 boats for the entire resort 🙁 . So we went back to the pool to try some back massage at the waterfalls and it somewhat fun doing it my hubby.
We had chinese buffet dinner at the Vegas Cafe located at the casino pavilion and had breakfast buffet at the Olives Restaurant. They served western and local food and I was totally in loved with their ‘Vigan longganisa, Espada ( dried fish ) and their homemade hot chocolate’ its just perfect for me.

Our room and the view pays off all my disappointments.

Pico De Loro Cove and Country Club – Nasugbu, Batangas

Pico De Loro Beach and Country Club - Nasugbu, BatangasPico De Loro Beach and Country Club - Nasugbu, Batangas
This is one of my weekend getaway with my family and we chose to visit Pico De Loro as recommended by a friend who also had a great experience here. At first glance the Pico de Loro Community looks Singapore to me ( or I just miss the place? ) but the place really looks amazing and you will definitely enjoy staying here as they have a lot of indoor and outdoor activities that you can do.

We rented a condo unit for a couple of days and brought some fresh seafoods that we bought a long the way. We spent our day at the pool and hit the gym early morning for some warm up. We wanted to do more but we didn’t have enough time as we are heading to Nuvali Tagaytay.

Have you been to Pico De Loro? Take a look of my few photos that I took from the place. 🙂

DIY : Lip Palette

Minimize your lipstick and make your own Lip palette.

When it comes to make up, I am a huge fan of Lipsticks. I love to mix and match them to have a unique color. But bringing them all is heavy for me so I thought of putting them into one.
Now I will show you on how I did it. The best part is, it has a variety of my favourite shades and its convenient to bring everyday.
Its very easy to do!

Make Up Forever Singapore (Make Up Competition Winner)

A few months ago I joined the Makeup Forever Singapore Makeup Competition.The competition is about using their Artistic False Eye Lashes. I chose the white feather one which is one of my favourite in their products and then I bought some colourful and unique feathers at Orchard to compliment with the false eye lashes that I chose. I carefully select my color palette for this concept so it will blend nicely with the feathers.

I was so excited when one of my friend message me that my photos was posted in the fan page of Makeup Forever.

I am very happy to won this competition and recently I went to their office to claim my prize. It was a nice office as all their staff was so friendly. I was thinking to enroll for their Makeup courses to further enhance my skills in makeup. It’s a little pricey though but I guess it’s worth it.

I will read more reviews and if possible ask people who have tried their makeup courses. If you know anyone who have taken the course in Makeup Forever kindly email me their contact at info@shiella.com I would be glad to give them some token just by sharing their experiences. 🙂

My New Ride

I’d like to share with you guys my new ride:D

I bought this beauty near my place. It’s been a while since I ride in a bicycle so I was so excited to use this for a test. For a lazy person like me, I guess this is pretty handy when I need to buy food and even go to the MRT. I love this Japanese style compared to the mountain bike and bmx style. This is more suitable for me coz it shows my feminine side and its pink. 🙂

I bought this at Bikers Shop at Sengkang Road, original price was $160.00 but i ask for discount and we end up to $140.00 with free lock .. great deal?:)

Conceptualize Baby Shoot

Up up in a way!!

Fun in the sun

I did this baby shoot few weeks ago. I prepared 3 concepts for her but the last concept was a bit hard for me coz she started to have tantrums. Initially I plan to shoot all the concept while she is sleeping, but since we don’t have time to wait for her to sleep, so I shoot her anyway.

Everybody was so happy after seeing the finished result. It was fun and fulfilling on my part to work with babies.
Anybody who’s interested to do a shoot with their baby, just leave a reply or email me at info@shiella.com
