Boxing day dinner and steam boat lunch with family!

Family time and food! My last food post for the year! What happens when asian families get together on visits? Food, food, food! And this end of year was no different when my two cousins came to visit with their parents! I have like 10 cousins on my dad's side but only two on my moms.

Note: I usually love posting my food posts with extra large photos but these are smaller otherwise the post would go on forever!

Special: Late Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve Dinner at my boyfriends!

Happy post Christmas and pre- New Years?! Oh my, how time flies...unfortunately I'm at home sick with some type of flu like sickness and it's really bothering me. I'm drowning my sorrows with boxes of tissue papers, lots of blogging and reading up for school!

I'm going to start making a list of 'things to do in 2013' as I really must start to learn how to plan time and organize activities to do!

Speical 2012: Festive dramatic gold arabic inspired look!

Festive times, festive looks! This is look #2! I'm going all out dramatic with this Arabic inspired look using my new Sleek products I just recently received in the mail!

I'm enjoying a slightly more than one week break from my school, a school where make up is restricted and hence I'm going all out for my posts now!

In the week to come I hope to at least haul my recent orders from Sleek and before we cross over into 2013!

Special 2012: Festive soft pink and gray smokey look!

Happy Holidays y'all! I don't celebrate Christmas. Christ wasn't even born on December 25, go check your official history authenticated by the Vatican Council! Anyways, I celebrate the ending of a year, the beginning of another with lots of food, sales and pampering myself!

I actually did a VERY dramatic look to start of my festive looks posts with but I'm afriad it will scare any passer bys if I posted it first! So here's a soft, refined and very feminine look I did with a single take!

Rave Review: theBalm's blush in Cabana Boy! (FOTD and day out with friends!)

Soo...Doomsday went real well! For those who were aware of the 21st December 2012 Mayan aapocalypse prediction and how absolutely nothing usual. This fictitious prophecy stuff has to go!

I was thinking about posting some hauls but this blush by theBalm just couldn't wait, some of you have already asked or mentioned how you liked in on my last post (check out here!) where I was wearing it with the Red Earth eyeshadow!

So happy that I spent some time this afternoon doing a very fancy Japanese looking dramatic eye...I wanted something Arabic and sexy and I think I did it! It will be coming very soon!

Rave Review: Red Earth eyeshadow in 36 Iced Brownie! (FOTD)

Have you had your 'Iced Brownie' yet? Haha! I'd seen amazing swatches of Red Earth eyeshadows and how they are suppose to be smooth and rich in pigmentation! This is my first eyeshadow from them as I couldn't help but to pick this up at Sasa. It's beautiful and I wish there were more shades of brown, I'd get it all!

Here's a recent mostly skincare haul I did from Sasa! Check it out here!

Food: Things eaten for November 2012! (seafood, japanese, local hawker food)

Foodie post for November! Oh gosh, so much food, everything I want to eat again! And yet...I'm still on track to losing another kilo of weight for my next weight goal! I go one at a time, makes things easier. Over the last few months I've realized that no ones needs to sacrifice good food for good health. It's not difficult, we just need to stop being so lazy and passive about things!

Review: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters in Berry Smoothie, Brown Sugar, Strawberry Shortcake! (050, 020, 080)

Balmy, shiny, Lip Butters! I'd believe by now everyone has heard of these babies? Colored balms in a lipstick case, don't you just love how their case matches the shade of the product? I do! Things like this just like Bourjois single blush packaging really gives a product a fun and practical quality!

I picked these three up seperately and when there was 20% sale for revlon products! I bought Brown sugar first a few months ago, then Berry Smoothie and most recently Strawberry shortcake!

Review: Bobbi Brown's Basic Brush Collection!

Did someone say brushes? Make up brushes! I'm a huge fan of learning how to use new types of brushes for different types of make up. They make a huge difference in how products apply and can be needed in order to use certain products and textures.  

This gorgeous Basic Brush Collection was purchased three years ago in Roma International Airport~!

Rave Review: Sleek Blush by 3 palette in lace!

Sleek craze! That's all I can think about when people hear about Sleek and lust after their products! I have the know how of how to get myself owning some palettes but I just haven't gotten around to getting any! This is my first sleek product and it is amazing, the quality just as great as my favorite lancome blush.

Hopefully by the end of the year I'd like to own at least one palette from Sleek and one single blush!

This I got through the help of my friend, Becky's, make up artist cousin who came to visit us during our graduation back in june! Becky has a lovely blog here on blogspot too, check her out here!

Skincare review: Avene Cleanance purifying lotion and gel cleanser!

Soap free skin goodness! My mother has been swearing by a line of skincare by this french brand Avene. There's actually and accent in the 'e' in the name but I'm not so bothered to get the letter right! She uses the line with rich creams and milky toner for her mature skin.

I've went through a few bottles of both the gel cleanser and mattifying toner by now. I initially bought them when I lived in Cambodia a few year back but only got to utsing them last year. This skin care
line is for oilier skin and hence the 'mattifying' and 'soapless' formulas.
