The final weekend of November approaches; we’re inching closer and closer to the end of the year, and yet another upcoming giveaway (watch this space!). 2017 is looking to be yet another year that has passed way too quickly, but that doesn’t mean you have to be sad to see the year go — especially when you see our Cheat Sheet for this week. Start planning your NYE countdown party or your upcoming holiday, get a new hairdo to ring in the new year a la Selena Gomez, and upgrade your bar snacks. Read on for our Cheat Sheet.

Food

Cheat Sheet
A hearty sirloin steak to go with your wine.

Bar snacks have evolved to being more than just peanuts and chips. Back then, even getting chicken wings was a luxury at bars. Now, we’re seeing a shift from these itty bitty snacks to proper food especially in AD Bar, Bangsar. But no, they’re not a supper club — they’re just a bar that’s decided to go the extra mile with fresh sashimi and sirloin beef to go with their selection of wine, cocktails, and other drinks.

Beauty

Cheat Sheet
Go blonde with no worries.

When Selena Gomez debuted her newly bleached locks during the American Music Awards 2017, the internet went crazy (as they do whenever any celebrity goes blonde). Fanfare aside, the bleaching process isn’t kind to the hair, which is why we’ve compiled several hair products that will nourish your hair should you feel like bleaching it. New year, new you?
