Day out: Admiring pastries at MBS, visiting the Hermes exhibition and a Thai meal at Bugis!

Day about town with a gal pal! Here is a post of a totally fun and girly day out. We spent time at Singapore's famous 'Shoppes' at Marina Bay Sands just looking around, window shopping, making comments, looking at pretty cakes and so on. We ended up having a really filling tea time break before my girlfriend brought me to check out a free exhibition by Hermes and then to Bugis (which everyone knows about and has gone to but me) where we checked out lots of the shops and had a delicious Thai meal!

Special: Year End Collective Haul 2015! (Chanel, Shiseido, Clinique, Bourjois, Etude House)

Year end collective haul time! Last year I did a big collective shopping haul and not surprisingly I have one yet again for the end of 2015! I've started a new job that's been going great since November and so my blog has slowed down a bit recently as I've been getting used to my new schedule. I did give myself the go ahead to spend lots of money in December as I've been very good the last half year on a low buy period. I rarely ever indulge in high end products and made up my mind that I was going to satisfy myself with products that I've wanted forever and still had on my shopping list!

Everything in this haul was purchased over November and December on many different occasions! I finally got myself a fancy, expensive skincare product which I've been thinking about getting for a long time. I picked up two drugstore foundations on a whim, ordered three holy grail lip balms, finally managed to get a black beauty blender, picked up the super pretty clinique cheek pop blush, bought a lip stain product on impulse and got a gorgeous lipgloss from an unexpected place.

Review: Que Origin Shower Bath Gel in Lavender, Lemongrass and Rose Geranium!

"Embrace Earth's Essence" with Que Origin! Last year was the year of shower gels for me! I've never been one to bother much with body washes, lotions or scrubs but last year I really made an effort to try out new products and I've come to find body gels as a treat I like having around for the days I need a pick-me-up. I'm a huge fan of 'natural' scents such as fruits and herbs so when a new brand here in Singapore called Que Origin contacted a few weeks back about trying out their all natural bath products formulated with natural oils I had to say 'yes'!

To get to the point, Que Origin's philosophy and products are all natural. They are all formulated with natural oils, infused with botanical extracts and are most importantly free of many types of known harmful chemicals. Products are also not tested on animals and do not use animal by-products. The oils used are from Australia and the products are manufactured in Korea.

First look using Chanel Les 4 Ombres baked eyeshadow in 226 Tisse Rivoli!

Smokey taupe eyes with Chanel! Ever since my first Chanel beauty purchase last year I've been in love with the baked quad I picked up in the shade 226 Tisse Rivoli. I was immediately entranced by the swatches from this quad, being so rich, multi-dimensional and absolutely smooth and gorgeous. Ever since my purchase I've used this quad in many ways. All the shades are beautiful used together, alone or together with one other shade from the quad. I discovered that I really loved creating a lightly smokey eye using all 4 shades in the quad and that it was so effortless and easy!

Food Post: Everything eaten in the month of October 2015! (Ribs, Roti, Pho, Bento)

Drool, chomp, chew! I've never been one to turn down food, I actually often run after food, make time just to eat and actually make a big fuss and complain when I'm hungry or just craving food! For those who are familiar with my food posts this one's for the month of October! Yes, I know I'm behind but I can't skip out on any of the my months as these last few months have been GOOD food months for me! 

In this post I'm featuring two meals from meet ups with a few girlfriends (which I rarely see as a group), trying out some new places near my home, a supper of pizza after work, lunch alone and a home made meal I got my boyfriend to help me cook for my girlfriends when we all managed to come together to my place!

Haul: Things purchased over October and November! (Forever 21, H&M, Charles & Keith, Swatch, Asos)

Collective haul time! I've really done my best the second half of 2015 to keep shopping to a minimum as I do spend mostly all my own money on clothes/accessories. Here is a post consolidating all the things I've purchased throughout October and November! I had nothing in particular that I wanted to buy but I came across so many things that I loved and ended up buying.

Coincidentally I ended up getting quite a few things that were shiny and pretty that sort of when along with the year end as well as my love for holographic and duochrome things! There were a few items that really were meant to be mine and I'll be pointing them out down below!

Blue to Green gradient eyes and lunch at Spruce Phoenix Park!

New friends, food and fun! This post is actually very very late as the gorgeous lunch session you're about to see took places several months back in May. It was to be the first of many more meet ups with my lovely girlfriend who I got to know from work. It's an unlikely thing for a personality like myself to come across any girls who are similar in the sense that I can literally talk non-stop (except when I'm eating and no present) especially when it comes to topics and opinions that jive with me. This lovely gal I met through my work place and since this first proper meet up outside of work, we've formed a good friendship also with two other gal pals at work and all four of us try to meet up with each other whenever we can!

Here we met up with another ex-colleague at his new work place at the time, Spruce restaurant which is a very well to do eatery that has a few outlets in Singapore. Their menu is small, of great quality and the ambience is just fantastic! Of course we also had great conversation which at the time I hadn't had a in LONG ASS WHILE!

Review: 4U2 i-Pro Impressionist Professional Eye Make-up Palette!

Get colorful with the Impressionists palette! When I was in Bangkok some time ago I made it a point as I always do to check out the make up stores! I always check out the supermarkets, small free standing shops and drugstores as they carry so many more brands and so much more variety than Singapore's drugstores! A store that I totally recommend and am dying to visit again is Beautrium which is where I got this gorgeous palette! They carry drugstore brands from America, Japan, Europe, Thailand and more! 

There were three variations of this palette in store and at the time I wasn't looking for neutrals so I ignored the all neutral one and also wasn't interested in the neutral/colorful palette so I picked this bright one up as I didn't have that many colorful shades in my collection and the swatches were to die for!

Special: First proper Halloween Trick or Treating with the Boyfriend's family!

Halloween 2015 Special! Yes, I know Halloween has long come and past but I didn't get around to writing up my post until now! The photos are all from the 31st itself when I joined my boyfriend, his brother and dad on their first trick or treating around a neighborhood in north Singapore that has its roads closed off every year for about the last decade in Singapore just for on October 31! It's the only place in Singapore where you can actually go trick or treating as if your kids showed up at any random homes around Singapore on Halloween day, nobody will have candy, treats or anything to give you because it's not something practiced here at all!

I've gone trick or treating only once ever in my life before this and it was at an apartment compound I stayed at where many of the residents agreed to give out treats. For this occasion I knew I wanted to do a special make up look and after a quick search for inspiration I settled on a ventriloquist doll look!

Review: Honey Color Neo Cosmo and Beaucon lenses! (brown, hazel, green, gray)

Colored contact lenses! I'm pretty sure that although it's quite obvious in my FOTDs and make up looks that I wear clear regular contacts, it's not often that you'll see me wearing colored contacts on the blog. The same goes for in real life, I don't wear them often although there was a time when I was younger that I did wear colored contacts on a daily basis! In the middle of last year I did a haul of 4 pairs of colors lenses when there was a big sale, all of natural looking designs from the website called "Honey Color" and if I'm not wrong their stock of products are based in Malaysia.

I've always loved 'natural' looking colored contacts, especially hazels and greens. I've even worn bright turquoise colored lenses before which I do miss and may purchase again in the near future! Since I never made the haul post last year, here it is together with my review of all four pairs!
