Park Royal on Pickering, Singapore

The most unusual, organic, undulating and alive building that you can stay at in Singapore.
Stay PARKROYAL on Pickering Singapore

An unusual spot

The Park Royal on Pickering is a very special building. More alive with plants than concrete. It’s flows in waves and layers. Each room enjoys a view of the hotel itself. On first arriving into the room, I was excited to see floor to ceiling windows down the length of the bedroom and bathroom. Affording huge views of the building’s jungle life. It was lovely to lie in the bath with such a great view.

The rooms are modern, as are the bathrooms, which allow the building to speak. Although getting to your room is not for the faint of vertigo heart. You have to walk down an open air corridor, and since the best views are higher up I recommend that’s what you request. You’re rewarded for your bravery with two pieces of free laundry and a complimentary soft drink mini bar.

I love the Orchid Lounge, found on the top floor of the hotel. Wonderful views and the most delicious complimentary breakfast and tea is served there. For once breakfast lasts till 11am which means they actually took into consideration jet lag! There are also evening cocktails till 8pm every night. Get a corner window table to really enjoy the views.

The Area

The neighbourhood around the hotel is perfect for first time tourists to Singapore. Chinatown and lovely streets like Ann Siang Hill (with one of my favourite eateries P.S Cafe) are walking distance. All the low rise painted buildings with wooden shutters are a must in Singapore. Although I have been many times I still love to wander the streets. A great place to eat in the evenings, and catch a market too. Wear cool clothes, if it’s crowded it can get hot.


Huge thanks to the Park Royal on Pickering for hosting me and theLuxeNomad for arranging it.

Bronze Brown Shadows


I’m a huge fan of a brown smokey eye. My beauty reference is always Olivia Palermo for this look, she does it so impeccably well, and it suits her beautifully. I wanted to do a whole eye look using the Laura Geller Delectables Delicious Shades of Nude Palette. I think it’s one of the best eye palettes on the market. The formula is so smooth and creamy, making blending effortless and the colours are universally timeless and chic. This is a tutorial just for the eyes but you can reference my Everyday makeup for the base. You could use a eyeshadow primer to enrich the colours (I recommend the Urban Decay one). I think this look wears beautifully day to night, so try it this friday!


It’s now time for the metallic shades that will add some dimension to your eyes.
Change over to a Firm Shader Brush.

First pick up Honey. Add it to the inner corner of your lid.

Then pick up Sunrise, and add it to your Middle lid.

Blend them into each other seamlessly. This is just time blending with your brush and adding a little product at a time.


With the Lips I use two matt liquid lipsticks to create a little lip contour to finish the look off. Start with the darker shade (in this case NYX Beauty Mark) and line your lips. Then fill in the centre with the lighter colour (NYX Baby Doll). Using your finger to blend the shades together.
