5 Things You Never Knew About Amanda Yong
When Sample Store approached me to share 5 Secrets about myself, I took up the challenge and said why not!
1. How I started my blogging journey
Many of you always wonder how I started my blogging journey. Truth to be told, Sample Store played a huge part in it! I started writing beauty reviews on my blog after requesting for my free samples from Sample Store. I really enjoyed the process and never stopped ever since!
Also, I leveraged on OOTD sites and community platforms such as Stylexstyle.com and Clozette to share my fashion photos and lifestyle shots.
2. Do you really like ALL the products that you promote for?
I haven’t openly said this before online, but I think it’s impossible to like every single product and experience that I have been asked to review.
Nonetheless, I do not wish to shame the brand as I believe that they should be given a chance to improve. Therefore, I tend to feedback and give suggestions to the marketing rep directly.
However, if you wish to find out my honest opinion, read between the lines!
For instance, if I did not mention that the food tastes good in any way, and simply use phrases like ‘the food was fresh, the decor was nice, etc”, you know what to expect. I don’t think there is a need to spell out so clearly.
3. What are some products/services that you continue to rave about?
a. SHAMANUTI Activated Charcoal Cleanser
This amazing cleanser even removes makeup! It’s unique formula utilises the properties of activated charcoal to neutralise acidity and absorb impurities as well as to gently exfoliate the skin with maple extract. Beneficial for all skin types including sensitive or problem skin and is very effective as a treatment for reducing acne, rosacea and eczema. It works as an excellent shaving cream and deodorizing body wash as well!
b. Blush Wax
After trying out the Brazillian Waxing, I was really impressed by their service! Just when I endured the pain to go through the waxing session, they moved on to use a tweezer to pluck out all the tiny hairs, which helps slow down subsequent hair growth. After which, they also applied a smoothing mask which helped soothe the pain. Will be going back to try their DPL services, so stay tuned for my review!
c. Heroine Make Smooth Eyeliner
Super pigmented and smooth! Easy to draw as well!
d. Stellar K Beauty FAU BB Solution
I really love this product! Love the in-built puff that makes application soooo eas. After application, it also leaves a really natural glow.
e. Contact Lens
They have a wide range of coloured contacts at affordable prices, and they deliver directly to your doorstep!
f. The Nails Work Nails Boutique
This nails boutique never fails to disappoint! Their nail artist is super professional and capable of pretty nail art!
A local sanitary pad brand that developed herbal pads. Their herbal pads not only keep the stink away during that time of the month, they also help to reduce cramps! Ladies, you’d never regret trying these.
4. Have you done any changes to your face/body?
Well, for those who have been following me for a long time should know the answer to this question.
Nonetheless, I’ve done nose and cheek fillers at Kowayo Aesthetic and breast implants from MH Plastic Surgery.
Refer to my posts to find out more about these treatments! Feel free to DM/email me questions too and I’d be happy to share my experience.
5. What are your long term goals as a blogger?
Well, I do not plan to go into blogging full time. I really enjoy it as a past time, being able to help brands increase their reach and to also expand my network by getting to know more entrepreneurs and business types! I aspire to open my own social enterprise one day and provide meaningful employment to adults with autism in Singapore. When that time comes, I’d be sure to tap the reach I currently have to spread word about my cause! Things are already in the pipeline, I’m excited!
If you enjoyed reading this and wish to ask me some questions or find out more about me, feel free to DM me (@a.mandayong).
In the meantime, go forth and be beautiful!
