FOTD: Rich Mahogany brown smokey eye! (opinions on my glasses?)

Hey ho! I'm on holiday in Cambodia right now! Visiting some friends, going to do some shopping! I'll be posting some pictures of the trip so far in a few days!

Here's a rich glamorous mahogany shade of brown I used for a smokey look! Who said neutrals are boring? Make them rich, luxurious, sexy and oh so easy to wear out!

Rave review: l'oreal inffallible single eyeshadows! (purple, brown, pink)

These lovely single eyeshadows from l'oreal came in as 'limited edition' last year and sold out! When I saw these were back, only in 8 colors and not the same as before I had to grab 3 while the offer was going on!

They are incredible to work with, pigmented and just drool worthy, I've only picked up one other color since and really wish l'oreal would bring in more!

Continue below for swatches and the review!

Food: May #3 (Seabass burger at Cedele!)

Quick foodie post! This was a really yummy fish burger I had at Cedele. It's a restaurant/cafe that serves healthier/organic/live well type of foods.

It was really good. I love fish cooked simply, just pan seared with salt and pepper. It was done just nice and with the tomatoey sauce, cheese and vegetable with the thick bread, it was great.

Would you order this seabass burger? How do you like your fish?
 let me know!

Feel free to comment! Thanks! 

FOTD/OOTD: Deep smokey brown with Dior!

Only FOUR more IB exams left! Wish me luck my lovely followers~!

Highschool has been an interesting experience, I wouldn't want to do it again but I hope to meet some people I got to know again. I'm saddened by how everything's just changed so easily, no more routine, no more seeing friends everyday but hey! That's life, I'm scared but I'm excited, I want more!

Just another quick smoky brown I did a while ago when I went out with my mom. I grabbed by Dior Cannage travel palette and used the dark brown in it for this look!

Haul for April 30: Pretty sandals, make up & toiletries~!

Here's a haul post for a bunch of things I picked up at the end of last month at Watsons! I went GAGA when I saw the l'oreal infalliable eyeshadows in stock! There was a deal on buying any three items from certain brands and getting a third item of lowest value free, hence getting the only three eyeshadows I'm interested in anyway from them!

Picked up some new powder and concealer from ZA which have been amazing and I'm trying out the l'oreal sleek system conditioner for my hair!

I also picked up an AMAZING liquid pen liner by the korean brand 'peripera' and it's the second of its kind I've used, the first a long time ago by revlon colorstay but it was crap. This one was perfection the first time and has now replaced my gel liner for daily use!

Continue below for close ups, details and my lovely new sandals!

Quick look: Revlon Superlustrous lipgloss in Nude lustre! (comparison to other nude glosses)

Something I picked up last year but was dying to try after hearing a lot about how the consistency of this line from Revlon is apparently one of the best lipglosses drugstore wise by lots of beauty gurus online!

I picked up a nude shade of course, easy to wear and to layer! love the shade! I'm comparing it to an NYX and Majolica Majorca lipglosses also of a nude color.

Special: late One Year Anniversary of my blog~! (ApriI 24)

Greetings to all my followers! Thank you so much for staying with me and tuning into my posts! I've never thought blogging would be as enjoyable as it's been the past year and this post is to mark my one year since my first post!

See my first post on blogger here!

This post is a week late, my anniversary date was April 24, last Tuesday, however it that was the last day of formal classes at school before our exams (which start tomorrow for me!) and a teacher of mine was involved in a traffic accident on the way to school which some of us learnt about only at the end of the day.

I spent four hours calling hospitals around Singapore inquiring as the school didn't release any details and my good friend and I wanted to visit him, after contacting a teacher and a friend of his we managed to see him in hospital at night which was such a comfort as he's been an incredible teacher and person.

This post however is important to me as I have my best friend Anna to thank. She was the one who got my started blogging last year and ever since things have taken off. I last saw her in January, she like my ex-classmates are graduating in Cambodia at the international school there whilst I'm graduating in an International school here in Singapore. I'll be flying over at the end of the month to visit her and attend their graduation before coming back for my own.

Here are some photos showing the recent and important things over the last month of my life. The last week in school was a senior spirit week hence themed dressing, I had my final art exhibition (Another special post for that which loads of photos!), I went sailing for the first time, lots of photos for memories to look back on in the years to come pretty much.

Please open up and continue below!
