Coming Back to Normalcy

Now that the soccer season has ended, you can finally bid goodbye to the late nights and disappearing acts that friends and families have been pulling on you for the past entire month.

Here are 5 useful tips to help you re-adjust back to normalcy as you ease back into your football-disruption-free routine:

1. Step Up On Your Beauty Regime

Be diligent and invest time in your regular facial treatments. The late nights and disrupted sleep schedule may have left your skin dehydrated, and your dark eye circles more obvious than they were a month before. Look for deep nourishing beauty sheets that hydrate the skin or simply DIY an easy cucumber face mask!

2. Drink Up - BRAND'S InnerShine® Berry Essence

Search no further if you’re looking for a drink that’s uniquely designed to improve your eye health. BRAND'S InnerShine® Berry Essence contains the goodness of 7 premium berries that neutralizes harmful free radicals and prevents the degeneration of eye cells.

3. Go on a Juice Cleanse

Get rid of toxins in your system by opting for a juice cleanse – bursting with nutrients and powerful antioxidants, they’re perfect for kick starting your healthy, post-football diet.Contrary to popular belief, juice cleanses actually increases your energy level so put your mind at ease and try this out if you can!

4. Catch up with your loved ones

Now that you finally have your partner’s full and undivided attention, spend some quality time and catch up on each other’s lives. A date night, or a simple home-cooked dinner would definitely do the trick.

5. Go for a Short Getaway

If you have been experiencing inefficiency and unproductivity at work – rest assured that this will soon come to an end, just as the soccer season. Re-energize yourself by going for a short vacation or a beach trip, as this may just be the very thing that you need. So take a weekend trip if you can to relax, unwind and
recharge before diving back to work.

Best Football Ads

As we draw to a close of this crazy football season, we want to salute and celebrate the advertisements that brought a smile to our faces, directed us to where to satisfy our midnight hunger pangs, or stirred the innermost desire to immediately run out to buy that product.

If there’s anything that will unite us Singaporeans, it’s food. It is tough staying up in the wee hours of the night to catch the game – so thank goodness for fast food and their delivery services. It’s definitely not healthy in the long run, but as long as it satisfies the hunger pangs, who’s complaining? 

For most of us, forking out over $100 to watch a month of football can be a painful financial exercise to swallow. Even if we can afford it, it’s hard to stomach the sickly feeling that we are being held ransom to the local Telcos who have been without impunity doubling the prices. Thank our lucky stars that there are real alternatives like McDonalds, SAFRA and CCs. The only downside is that you can’t watch it in your PJs.

Hmm – Looks like

Salute to the agencies and brands that reference the world’s most beloved game and recognizable cup. You have to be either daft or living in a cave not to know what the ads are about.

Even though some of these brands are not official sponsors, with just the right amount of cheeky humor, dash of colors and clever copywriting – they’ve managed to easily capture the attention of millions, both football fans and non-fans alike.

Audio specialist Beats is just one of those uber cool brands, where even a poster (a completely passive medium) makes you want to reach out and get yourself a set of Beats headphones. Do check out the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_i3Lcjli84 and hear the inspiring chat that Neymar had with his dad as part of his pre-game ritual – all this before listening to a motivating track using his Beats headphones.
