Tour Eiffel

The Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. The Tower is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower for the 1889 Exposition Universelle.

It took 2 years, 2 months and 5 days to build this veritable technical and architectural Tower.

A few facts and figures:
  • Almost 7 million people visit the Tower annually, 75% of whom are foreigners
  • The Tower is 324 metres high (including its antennas)
  • There are 20,000 bulbs (5,000 on each side) which glitter for 5 minutes every hour on the hour, from nightfall until 1am.
  • You will have to climb 1,665 steps on the East staircase to reach the top

We booked to join the night tour of the Tower.

We had low cloud at the same time, so you'll see the further up the Tower we went, the cloudier it got. Here a some pictures of the view from the second floor.

We found a Champagne Bar on the top floor. It would have been rude not to have Champagne whilst we were in the Eiffel Tower.

UPDATE: Another way to 'Survive in SG'

survive-asia (formerly surviveSG) was started by a couple who are living in Singapore. They wanted to sell products online that were high quality yet difficult to find in Singapore. On top of this, they wanted to provide great service, quality packaging and overall, an enjoyable online shopping experience in Singapore.

All of survive-asia products are organic!

Shampoo, Conditioner & Body Wash

The Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash range, is made by the same person who co-founded Aveda.

The shampoo and conditioner is suitable for all hair types, and has an amazing fresh and minty smell!!

The Body Wash is suitable for both males and females. It even has a fresh and minty smell, sure to wake you up with a bang!

Intelligent Nutrients: Harmonic Conditioner, Body Wash and Shampoo

These bottles come in both 444mL and an ECO SIZE 946mL. Each sold separately.

The answer to your frizzy hair problems

You only need a tiny drop of this miracle liquid and you'll be free of frizzy hair. What's more, this product smells divine! AND a brand that Cameron Diaz swears by.

Original Mineral: Frizzy Logic (anti-hair frizz) serum (50mL)

Want thicker, longer lashes?

Don't waste your money on false lashes!

This mascara and eye charm set won't leave you with  you clumpy, unnatural looking lashes. After you see the results I don't think you'll bother using any other brands.

Shizens brush on lash extension set - no more false lashes required!

See for yourself . . .

You can totally see the difference. The lashes on the left has been applied with "miracle mascara", and the right side has not.

Who wants to save money buying lipstick?

I do!  I've always been put off buying lipstick because lipstick smudges, it leaves stains on clothes, and I have to reapply it throughout my day.

This next product is one of my favourites.

Imagine walking out the door without lipstick? You wouldn't right?

This lip painter + gloss is amazing. I call it my 'miracle stick'. The white end contains the lip painter. You apply the lip painter onto your lips and then wipe it off after about 3 seconds, and abracadabra - you have instant natural looking rosy lips!

If you want a glossy look, simply apply the lip gloss (the pink end).

The pictures don't do the product any justice at all. You have to see it for yourself.  Honestly, this will change your life and save you money!

You can even apply the lip painter on your face as a blusher.

The good news is, you only need to apply this product ONCE a day. No touch-up or reapplying is necessary.

Face mist with a 'pick-me-up' feel

You know in the mornings when you step out the door feeling like crap, or you're having one of those 'low mood' days. Or you're meeting up with friends and have been walking in the Singapore heat? Then this is the answer. There are three different face mists available.

My favourite one is the Red Flower Face & Body Mist: Ionizing Botanical Toning Mist.

One you spray this onto face, you instantly feel refreshed and alive! It is probably the power of the pure-plant hydrosols and whole essential oils which help to tone and balance stressed skin. This also doubles-up as a body spray to give you that 'clean' feel when you've been walking around in the Singapore heat all day.

The Red Flower brand is loved by celebrities including Anne Hathaway, Beyonce, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlet Johansson.

Red Flower Face & Body Mist: Ionizing Botanical Toning Mist

The Mona Lisa

The Mona Lisa is a half-length portrait of a woman (believed to be Lisa Gherardini) by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci, which has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world."

The following picture show you  just how popular, and how small the painting of the Mona Lisa actually is!

There has been speculation on whether the Mona Lisa display at The Louvre is the original painting or a copy.  I have been doing some extensive research on the internet and have found answers to the spectulations, however, I won't publish my findings in this blog post . . . go and see it for yourself.
