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!

Cotton Candy Eyes and Ramen Dinner at Ippudo!

Candy colored eyes and rich ramen! Having worn mostly neutrals the last year for work the times I was free and going out I would do either simple but bold looks or more fun colorful looks! Here I did a cotton candy purple inspired look with a touch of blue which I love when it comes to eyeliner. For dinner my boyfriend and I had delicious rich bowls of super authentic ramen at the famous and popular Ippudo which is an International franchise specializing in Japanese ramen noodles! Since this trip, we have gone back two more times and would love to go back again!

Holiday Special: Day 4 in Bangkok, Visiting Chatucak Weekend Market! (March 2016)

Chatucak Weekend Market! No visit to Bangkok is complete without a visit to one of their large markets, the most famous being the Chatuchak Weekend Market! Located a walking distance from Mo Chit BTS, it houses more than 8,000 stalls and sees 200,000 visitors over the weekend which is when the market is fully open. It is open from 9am-5pm on the weekends and limited hours of 6pm-12am on weekdays. 

It's not recommended to go during the weekdays as only a tiny fraction of the stalls are open. The market is HUGE and you must get your hands on a map which is available at the police station on the way to the entrances from the train station or at the various entrances to the market.

Review: Kate Brown Shade Eyes in BR-3!

Brown shade eyes! Because there is literally no such thing as too many neutrals or variations of 'nude' shadows! This series of small eyeshadow palettes was available from the japanese drugstore brand kate the last two years but this particular design of shadow is no longer selling now in Singapore as I've noticed kate tends to over haul their small palette shadows every two years. I skipped the cool and warm toned palettes and gravitated straight to this gorgeous rose nude trio! All the palettes came with a 'fake shade' powder which is basically a small nose shading powder!

Review: Etude House Snowy Dessert Pudding Tint in Lychee!

It's time for Dessert Pudding! For those who are fans of asian make up brands and like lip stains and tints this product is a coming together of the cuteness of asian beauty products together with a strong sturdy lip product. This product was released back before December last year which was around the time which I got it. This product was so cute and alluring that although I rarely buy pot lipcolor I just had to get this to try!

Special: Ramadan 2016 Visiting the Geylang Serai Bazaar!

Belated Ramadan Bazaar Post! Every year it is a tradition for my boyfriend and I to visit the large bazaar that pops up for a month long at Geylang Serai which is next to/ around Paya Lebar MRT. This bazaar coincides with the monthly fast which many muslims do every year. The stalls mostly open from noon to midnight as the fast breaks around 7pm here in Singapore and that's usually around the peak amount of people getting food and drinks. Ever since I visited this bazaar back in 2012, I've made it a point to return multiple times every year since as there are usually new stalls selling new trending things.

Date night with japanese lunch, pizza and churros!

Fresh Pizza, Fresh Churros! This post has been long delayed! It's from a date night I had with the boyfriend back in December. It was the first day I wore my teal sequin top from HnM which I love and actually have the matching skirt to! There's just something about shiney teal that I just LOVE. I recently spotted a bomber jacket with this same finish and color and I'm sooooo tempted to get it for a crazy shiney all inclusive teal outfit! The night from this post was when I finally tried an old Italian restaurant not far from my boyfriend's home which is nowhere near where I live and their wood fire oven pizza was so damn good!

Mytical purple eyes with teal eyeliner!

Purple and teal! There are pretty much three shades of eyeliner that I love, black, dark brown and teal! Teal and turqoise for some reason is my favorite shade of blue. I could wear navy or teal eyeliner literally all the time. I find that blue tones are so complimentary to brown eyes and just look smoldering without being so dark like eyes completely rimmed with black. This eyeliner from L'oreal was purchased some time back but I've absolutely loved it and use it on my waterline whenever I feel like going for a pop of color without extra shadows.

Holiday Special: Food, Beauty and Shopping Haul from Bangkok! (March 2016)

Bangkok Hauling! This haul has been long awaited! It's from all the way back in March of this year when I had visited Bangkok for a much needed break with my mom and we did quite A BIT of shopping! This time I didn't go as crazy with the make up but we spent more time eating and getting bags and clothes.

It's a shame that Bangkok is restructuring many areas in the city where street vendors selling clothes and accessories will be moved as well as temporary food stalls that pop up only at night. This was announced a few months ago in part of their effort to clean up and make the city more organized for both the vendors and easier for tourists and patrons to enjoy the stalls. Whatever the case, I will always travel back to Bangkok year after year!
