Our natural detox system!

Now I am no expert on the matter but I can share what has worked for me and what I have here goes!

Ever wondered why you have reoccurring dark eye circles or puffiness? Or ever felt really heated around the throat area, as though you can feel a gush of hot air rising and have bad breath too? This could be caused by your natural detox system being interrupted!

According to a Chinese doctor I spoke to, our bodies have a natural body clock that carries out its own detox system and all you need to do is to drink more water and sleep at the right time!! Apparently the body clock shuts down for relaxation and rest at 11pm, then individual organs will take turns going into a natural cleaning or detox process whilst you sleep. Which is why it is advisable to sleep by 11pm and drink a glass of warm water first thing after you wake up in the morning to clear away the toxic stuff your body has been working on over the night.

I am perhaps not the healthiest person but I do try to avoid getting dark eye circles if I can. So with the help of my Clinique All About Eyes cream hero that has made the area silky soft and reduced a lot of the purple shadow I had before, I tried both sleeping late after 11pm, getting 8hours and drinking water in the morning as well as sleeping around 11pm, with 8hours and drinking a glass of water in the morning. I did notice that on days that I slept by 11pm, the sleep quality I received seemed better, my eye area did look less puffy and almost perfectly shadow free in comparison. So try it to see if it works for you!!


  1. Really interesting post, I always suffer with dark circles so I'll definitely give this a

  2. Thanks for the comment Victoria. Hope it will help you get rid of dark circles! :)
    Also if you are having a late night ie. past 11.30pm, you can try avoiding fried foods before bed and the next day.

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

Qipao Love: Part 1~ From Qi Pao to evolution of a dress about women!

Welcome my lovely darlings to the new address as the blogspot to custom domain transition is now officially completed! Worry not, if you are still using the address it should automatically divert to the blog and there is also a new e-mail address if you should like to drop me a line to say hello or ask any questions;! What better way to celebrate this transition than to start on one of my favourite topics.....with Part One of my "Qipao Love (All about Qipao)" series of posts!

Throughout my blog over the two years, I have mentioned the Chinese Qipao dress (also known as Cheongsam in Cantonese) quite a few times, especially during the run-up to Chinese New Year. Having a self confessed love of the Qipao, as some of you darlings who have been following may know, I can usually be spotted wearing the Qipao throughout the 15 days of Chinese New Year festivities and have been adding one or two new Qipao dresses t…

How-To: Build a 1920s inspired Great Gatsby look!

With my birthday coming up in a little more than two weeks, and having decided on a vintage themed party, it is time to put my vintage thinking headband on! Last year I had fun dressing up as a 1940s inspired Pin Up girl, and this year I have decided to go a little further back in time.....yes my darlings....we will be roaring in a 1920s glitzy Great Gatsby affair!

The 1920s has been a favourite decade of mine for quite some time.....admittedly the decadence of the glittering heavily beaded long gowns, the extravagantly flirty ostrich feathers and the shiny Art Deco gem-stoned pieces might have something to do with it! It was true that the roaring 20s was a rebirth period for many because of the survival of WW1, so living every new day as free, happy and extravagant as possible became the ideal dream. With more women embracing liberation by replacing restrictive corsets with loose flowing dresses that revealed more flesh than ever before, a period embracing individuality, creativity, …
