NIKE SPACE HIPPIE - THIS IS TRASH

When sustainability and style come together, amazing things happen.

Nike, being known for its commitment for sustainability and its belief of protecting the planet, has launched a new collection that aligns with their Move to Zero movement (zero carbon and zero waste).

The latest Nike Space Hippie collection, transformed from factory and post-consumer waste, is the epitome of sustainability and style. Every detail of the four initial Space Hippie silhouettes, from material choices to methods of make to packaging, was chosen with consideration for its environmental impact. It intrigues me how Nike has come up with this amazing idea of creating a new product with the least material, the least energy and the least carbon.

"The basis for the engineered knits that form the Space Hippie uppers is created using what we call 'Space Waste Yarn.' These yarns are made from 100 percent recycled material — including recycled plastic water bottles, T-shirts and yarn scraps. Combined with the other elements of the Space Hippie 02, we get an upper that is 90 percent recycled content by weight."
"For cushioning, Space Hippie uses factory scraps from the production of the Vaporfly 4% and reprocesses that ZoomX foam in a way that uses about half the CO2e as typical Nike foams."


"The tooling of all Space Hippie shoes, created with 'Crater Foam,' is made with a blend of standard Nike foams and 15 percent Nike Grind Rubber. The reduction in virgin material gives a lower carbon footprint and the Nike Grind granules create a really unique texture and color mix on every midsole."

Also, instead of their usual double box, the Space Hippie collection is delivered in a single shoebox made from re-purposed material, printed on with a plant-based ink. It all adds up to one of their lowest-carbon-footprint drops ever.


I personally really love the unique aesthetic and fit of the shoes. Not only it is soft and lightweight, this pair of shoes also fits like a pair of gloves. Also, I love the fact that it has a slightly pointed tip which helps to create an illusion of having longer legs.



The Nike Space Hippie collection will be available on Nike's official website from 11 June onwards.
Let's move to a better future with Nike.

3 STEPS TO HEALTHY SKIN!

Hey guys! How's everyone coping with this CMCO so far?

For me, I've been spending a lot of my time researching and studying about skin care ingredients. I used to be someone who just blindly followed the trend and end up spending unnecessary money on a bunch of skin care products that don't work for my skin (don't be like me!).

And that's the reason why I'm here to share with you what I've learned so far!

I find that our human skin actually doesn't need A LOT of skin care products.
There are Youtube tutorials out there showing you an extensive 10-step skin care routine, is it wrong? No, it's not wrong at all, in fact it's really up to you how many products you want to use in your skin care routine as long as it works for you! 

But is it necessary to have a 10-step skin care routine?
Well, no. It's definitely not necessary to slap on 10 different products on your skin. 

Instead, I find it very important for us to understand our skin type and what our skin needs first before blindly following all the skin care trends out there.

Personally, I have a combination skin, which means my T-zone tends to get oiler than the rest of my face and my T-zone tends to get more acne as well! I've been trying to avoid products made with fragrances lately, because I personally find that it WORKS better for my skin when I'm using fragrance-free products.

And I wanna introduce you guys a brand that I've been using a lot lately -- Cetaphil!


I know I know, I'm sure that this brand needs no introduction. A lot of my friends are also using this brand as well! So I just wanna share with you guys some of my personal favourite products from the brand.

GENTLE SKIN CLEANSER
First of all, let's start with cleanser because it's like the most crucial part in a skin care routine. Without proper cleansing, there's really no point applying more products on your skin because they just won't get absorbed into the skin.




Cetaphil's Gentle Skin Cleanser is my favourite!
Just like its name, the cleanser is very gentle on the skin.
It's also soap-free and fragrance-free, which makes it non-irritating at all to all skin types.
I love that it also doesn't strip away my skin's natural moisture after using it.
It doesn't leave my skin feeling tight at all, but instead, I love how it makes my skin feel clean yet soft and moisturised hehe.
I love using it as a daily cleanser, even on days when I do not put on makeup!

You can learn more about the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser here!

MOISTURISING CREAM
After my skin is properly cleansed, I will go straight into my trustworthy Cetaphil's moisturising cream to lock in the moisture. Again, this is a fragrance-free moisturiser, which is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin.




I love the texture a lot! It's not too thick and not greasy at all, and it gets absorbed into the skin very quickly! It's leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth, thanks to its unique formula and superior system of emollient and humectant that binds water to the skin. I find that with this product, I still wake up with a pretty soft skin the next morning even though I sleep in an air-conditioned room!

SPF
I would ALWAYS apply my SPF DAILY after moisturising, even when I'm staying indoors! Researches show that UVA rays are able to penetrate right through window glass, and UVA rays are the main contributing factor to skin-aging, dark spots and wrinkles!!

That's why it's super important to apply a sunscreen with broad spectrum protection, which protects you for both UVA and UVB rays. 



I find that the Cetaphil's UVA / UVB Defense SPF 50+ works really well in protecting my skin against the harmful UVA/UVB rays.

Not only it has SPF 50+ (which has a pretty broad spectrum already), it is also non-greasy, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and moisturising to the skin.

So guys, don't reserve the use of sunscreen only for sunny days or even when you are just staying indoors. It might be tempting to skip your sunscreen during this stay-home-period, but please, do your skin a favour and your future self will thank you for this haha!


I'm amazed how healthy my skin looks, even it's just a 3-step skin care routine!

Sometimes, less is more ;) 

Hope you enjoyed my sharing today and if you want to try out Cetaphil's products, you can head over to their official store on Shopee or Lazada!

Stay safe x

DAY ONE
Our day started with a Fremantle Walking Tour conducted by @fremantletours.  The team at Fremantle Tours love nothing more than showing off their fantastic home. An outing with Fremantle Tours is like being shown around a new city by an old and passionate friend! With this walking tour, I was able to learn so much history about Fremantle, listen to stories passed down through generations, and even discover hidden gems that only the locals know.
Check them out on Instagram too: https://www.instagram.com/fremantletours
After the walking tour, we were chauffeured to Kailis Fish Market Cafe for lunch! Kailis' Fish Market, located on the waterfont in Fremantle's Fishing Boat Harbour, is a multi-award winning seafood restaurant with a fresh Fish Market and Seafood BBQ, Fish & Chip counter, and Cafe and Bar. Order the seafood platter and you won't regret it!
After lunch, we headed to the Fremantle Arts Centre. Fremantle Arts Centre is the City of Fremantle's premier arts service and one of the leading arts organisations in Australia. The Centre showcases free exhibitions, free and ticketed concerts and events from international, national and local artists, and offers a wide range of art courses.

We also took a stroll around Cappuccino Strip and stopped by Coco Bianco Gelato for gelato! I had the Creme Brulee Cappuccino flavour and it was sooooo creamy and good!
I just couldn't resist taking pictures everywhere I go in Cappuccino Strip because every corner is so picture-worthy! The street reminds me of Disneyland so much.
Even their bookstore looks so aesthetically-pleasing!

In the evening, we headed to Bathers Beach House, which is a beachfront restaurant and bar. It's a perfect beach to watch the sunset, as many of the locals do everyday!
Had a really good time there.


After the sun set, we walked over to The Arbour for dinner, which is just 10-mins walk away from the Bathers Beach. It's so cool that this beach is located within a walking distance from the city! 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DAY TWO

Rise and shine! We had breakfast at Moore and Moore cafe, which is just a 4-min walk away from our hotel (Quest Fremantle). Watch my vlog for moreeeee!

Then, we checked-out our hotel to head to Perth City. But along the way, we stopped by the famous Rainbow Container for pictures!


The sculpture by prominent Perth artist Marcus Canning is constructed from nine recycled sea containers joined to form an arch.
After that, we headed to Cottlesloe Beach to check out the Sculptures by the Sea! Cottesloe is internationally famous for its superb beach and terraced lawns overlooking the Indian Ocean. The exhibition (free entry) is featured from the sea wall all the way along the sand towards North Cottesloe and on the surrounding grassed areas creating a beautiful sculpture park.



For lunch, we headed to Island Market at Trigg Beach, which is a sister restaurant to Kailis Fish Market Fremantle, offering casual Spanish/ Mediterranean-inspired dining on the beach.
After lunch, we departed to the Optus Stadium for a tour.  With views of the picturesque Swan River and Perth city in the west and the foothills in the east, this 60,000 seat world-class multi-purpose stadium will host a variety of sports and entertainment events including Australian Football League, International and Big Bash League cricket, soccer, rugby league and union, plus concerts. Ed Sheeran is the first artist who held his concert there!!
As soon as the stadium tour ends, we hopped on the Little Ferry Co private cruise from Optus Stadium's jetty to Elizabeth Quay. There is no better way to see the beautiful Swan River and city than travelling in the exquisite comfort of this solar electric ferry.
Oh look! I even got to become the helmsman for 5 minutes hahahaha!

After arriving Elizabeth Quay, we had our driver to chauffeur us to our hotel in Perth, i.e. Adnate Perth! This hotel has a very strategic location as it is really near to shopping streets like King street, Hay street, Wolf Lane (for street arts), etc.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DAY THREE

On the third day of our trip, we kick-started our day with a wholesome breakfast at Bayside Kitchen. Not only the food was delicious and generous in portion, this restaurant also boasts a beautiful view of the bay. It's certainly a perfect way to start the day.


Here we are at the famous Crawley Edge Boatshed which is widely known as Blue Boat House! The "Crawley Edge" Boatshed is thought to have been originally constructed in the early 1930s. After many years the Boatshed continues to be a prominent landmark on the Swan River.
We hopped on a private 1.5 hour Segway Tour and it was the highlight of the trip for me!!! I was freaking out during the practice because I was terribly afraid of falling down. My friends were literally cheering for me and giving me mental support hahaha! But after getting the hang of it, I wish the tour was longer! It was super fun, and with our tour guide, we got to hear thrilling and fascinating stores about Perth's rich history, dynamic boom times and breathtaking plans for the future!
And because Perth's roads are very straight and well-maintained, it makes it super easy to ride a segway! I would 100% recommend you to try this when you are here in Perth! Check out Segway WA's website for more info!


We then had our lunch at this very beautiful restaurant in The Royal Hotel Enjoy contemporary style share plates and traditional counter meals whilst sipping on a glass of wine selected from an artfully curated wine list, or a class staple or new craft pick poured fresh from one of the Hotel's 14 beer taps.

Everything tastes as FANTASTIC as their looks!

After lunch, we met our guide from Two Feet & a Heartbeat Walking Tours for a tour focusing on street arts, laneways, hidden bars, etc. It's a very relaxed yet informative and conversational walking tour!

We had dinner at Street Eats Eatery located within Yagan Square. There are also plenty of restaurants around Yagan Square. You can also find a lot of Asian cuisine at Chinatown which is located at Northbridge (just beside Yagan Square)!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DAY FOUR

On the last day of our trip, we had some free time to shop at Westfield Carousel, a one-stop hub for shopping, fun & relaxation. The mall opens as early at 9am (except for Sunday) and we had a great time shopping for clothes in the mall!! (Watch my vlog for more) 

After that, we headed to Core Cider House at Perth Hills for cider-tasting and a fruit-harvest tour!

 Core Cider House is the place to be if you want to experience and enjoy fine WA hand-crafted ciders overlooking the orchards.  They offer a wide variety of ciders including sweet and traditional, as well as premium and limited edition special releases. My favourite has got to be the Pink Lady cider!


I was so in love with this place that exudes a irresistible country charm!
Lunch was fantastic at Cider Garden restaurant!

We had some free time shopping before going to the Moonlight Cinema at Kings Park! It's Australia’s favourite open air cinema showing advance screenings, new release and cult films in the park!! The experience was fantastic!
Kings Park itself is a charm.


So our Gold Grass ticket includes entry and our own Bean Bed in the premium viewing location on the lawn under the starry sky!! We also ordered some snacks and refreshments to munch along our movie!
After the end of our movie screening, we made our way to Kings Park Hill to enjoy the night view of the Perth city lights before heading to the airport. The city view and the starry sky was so beautiful that I was reluctant to bid goodbye.

Once again, thank you Malindo Air and Western Australia Tourism Board for sending me here and showing me how beautiful Perth is. I hope to go back soon to discover more places in Perth!
