Review: Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara Advanced Film in 01 Black!

Advanced Film Mascara! For those who may not know my holy grail mascara that I have repurchased at least 1-2 times a year for about 4-5 years now has been from Kiss Me Heroine. I've loved both their Long & Curl and Volume & Curl formulas, both which are super black, super waterproof and both add lots of volume and length! I repurchase both types and in the last year I've tried 3 other versions from them, the Impact Frame and Curl, Long & Curl Super Film and now this Advanced Film version. 

I'll be honest, the first two the Impact Frame and Super Film versions were utterly mediocre. The Impact Frame had a wand that clumped on far too much mascara and at best gave too natural looking lashes as the formula would not build. The Advanced Film had a brush that held too much product and the formula also didn't layer the lashes properly which meant more time applying for very very 'meh' results. Hence I was quite on the fence about purchasing this new version but then again, they product my holy grail mascara so I just HAD to try it!

Date night: Teal smokey eyes and thin crust pizzas at Alt Pizza!

Date night with pizza! For those who didn't know pizza isn't a 'cheap' food here in Singapore...not at all! Even take away pizza meals for 2 could buy you a casual restaurant meal. That plus considering the huge variety of local foods in Singapore being available very cheaply at hawker center and food courts, pizza isn't eaten very often by most folk here. Pizza companies and authentic Italian pizza places have grown in numbers the last many years and it's very easy to find places all over Singapore making pizza properly and in different styles too!

My boyfriend had tried a pizza joint called "Alt Pizza" which his family sometime ago and with his recommendation we headed there for dinner!

Rave Review: Glamourflage Lip Balms (Mellow May, Bijou Beo, Daisy Delight, Bella Blaze)!

Glamourflage Lip Balm! For those who cannot live without a good rich luxurious lipbalm...HIGH FIVE! Since I was young, my lips tend to get very dry very easily. I must mention that I am extremely hydrated, I drink the most liquids out of all my friends and also colleagues and even at home but still my lips are always on the border of being dry or are dry most the time. For me it's key to have a thick layer of lipbalm before sleeping every night.

I've tried so many brands of lip balm, most from the drugstore and a lot from random high end, medical and trending brands. Many balms have been just okay or keep my lips hydrated enough to feel 'normal' but are not rich enough to heal my lips back from a dry spell. I gave this brand a chance when I saw it selling on a local beauty site and ever since then I've yet to try anything else better.

Holiday Special: Day 2 in Patong, Phuket Thailand! (May 2016)

Day 2 in Phuket at Patong Beach! For our second day during my trip to Phuket Thailand with my boyfriend back in May over his birthday we spent the day mainly on the main strip of beach followed by a really great local seafood dinner! Although Patong is known as one of the tourist filled areas of Phuket, we didn't encounter a super packed beach or streets at the main street during the time of our visit!

Review: Laneige Special Care Lip Sleeping Mask!

Lip sleeping mask? In my constant hunt looking for another great product to standby to use as I have always on the verge of being too dry lips I came across this product! Much like Laneige's very popular Water Sleeping Mask which is for the face, this is the equivalent but for the lips! I bought mine off when there was a group buy and I got it for about half the price of what it retails for in Singapore!

Day out in town: Tanuki Raw for lunch and Paris Baguette!

Bowl of goodness! For the last many months I've been finally adjusting to a more equal work and life balance. No one can really make you understand how to do it, and it's all about trial and error. I'll admit it hasn't been easy and some weeks you feel like you're just waiting for your rest days just to put your feet up and get stuff done that you can't do around your work days. Some weeks back I decided to give a place a shot which I'd been seeing all over local instagrammers feeds and it was pretty much an afternoon along Singapore's much famed shopping street Orchard Road.

The place we went to is known for their Japanese style of rice bowls with different types of meat, I really wanted to try the beef slice and foie gras option which they are known for!

Holiday Special: Day 1 in Patong, Phuket Thailand! (May 2016)

Awesome first day in Patong Phuket! No guys, I'm not on holiday right now, this gorgeous holiday to Phuket, Thailand was from back in May for my boyfriend's birthday and was an advanced treat ahead of our 4 year anniversary which is in June. So I basically have two types of holidays I love, visiting busy cities or beach side towns! The last time I was in Phuket was a few years before the tsunami in 2004 when I was a child. I decided on staying in the much popular Patong area which is about half way down the west coast of Phuket Island.

On our first evening we checked into our gorgeous resort hotel which was a short walking distance to the main street. We headed straight to have a local dinner, check out the area around and we finished the night with cocktails and some minimart shopping!

Review: Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick in 01 Fresh!

Clear Smooth BB Stick! For those who live in hot and humid weather all year round it can sometime be quite a pain to apply foundation when there's a high chance of it largely melting off through the day. BB creams and BB base products have become more common and popular as time has passed and is quite favored in Asia as the Asian types of BB creams tend to be very long lasting through the weather here. Considering stick foundations are known for being quick, easy to use and tend to have heavier coverage,  this product is the combination of BB formula and stick foundation!

Special: Celebrating Grandma's 82nd Birthday at Corner House!

Happy birthday Grandma! My grandmother turned 82 earlier this year in July and to celebrate I brought the family out to have a fine dining experience at the much famed Corner House. Some years ago as part of my apprenticeship for my Hospitality Culinary Diploma I was a trainee at a fine dining place at the very internationally known Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. The executive chef at the outlet I was at is now the chef and owner of Corner House which is located in the Botanical Gardens. It was only in recent months that Michelin Stars were given out in Singapore and Corner House was awarded one star! 

I'd actually been wanting to give Corner House a try for the last two years since it opened in 2014 but as time passed and I was so busy with life things that I didn't ever make it a reservation but knowing my grandmother's birthday was coming up I proposed to my family and we made it a date!
