FOTD: Princess Pink eyes using Kiko Color Shock!

Princess Pink Pop! Here's a super feminine, girly and easy look using one of my new Kiko color shock longwearing eyeshadows which I received in a generous swap with Pam from Jade in the Palace beauty blog!

Check out the beauty swap I did with (Pam here!) And my first ever blogger meet up with her earlier this year (here in Singapore!)

My typical 'flawless' and 'to go' look is usually some neutrals, always shimmery with some depth and rosy cheek but one day I wanted some pink! I reached out for the super creamy kiko eyeshadow and came up with this!

Bangkok holiday haul: Dresses, tops, bags sandals and heels!

Bangkok holiday clothes haul! For those of you who have followed and read the last month, I was in Bangkok for a week in October on my school break! I ate, walked and shopped a ton with my mother and it was a well deserved break! I took lots of photos of our meals so if you missed out, check out my (Bangkok Holiday post here!)

If you are a lover of make up hauls and interested in seeing what I got at Boots, Beautrium, Karmart and Beauty Buffet in Bangkok, (check out my post here!) I really didn't get much clothes because although things are cheap, I much rather buy smaller things than a whole load of cheap clothes that I mostly can't try on!

I didn't buy many items of clothes but I did get some great bargains in Bangkok!

Day Out: Satay by the Bay lunch and home baked cheesecake!

Satay lunch and scrumptious cheesecake! Some weeks ago my boyfriend took my out to walk around at the famous Gardens by the Bay man made garden domes filled with several hundreds of species of plants and they two domes are two climates. However it rained that day and we didn't go into the domes, we just walked a bit around the outside gardens which is free and we went to find the food center near by to have lunch!

Review: Catrice Defining Blush single in 060 Rosewood Forest!

Rosewood lover! Hey ladies! This has been a long week, a six day week at work which isn't ending until thursday this week. Count that and I'm going on working 10 days without rest.I'm at least grateful that the section I'm working in at my internship site is not too laborious and physically exhausting!

Heads up to some of my favorite blushes now of all time. The defining singles from Catrice have won me over. I bought one shade for a start, Rose Royce (my review here!) which is now one of my top blushes, a beautiful slightly coral rose shade and then since then I've went back and picked up 3 more shades!

Fall smokey forest green eyes! (Bourjois Smoky eyes trio)

Smokey foresty green! Oh the 'fall' season is almost over! Here's the first of my darker colorful fall/winter year end looks! I was reorganizing my make up collection when I came across a Bourjois smoky color trio which I bought a while back when I used to live in Cambodia.

I love the thought of darker but yet colorful, strong, bold shades when I think of festive inspired looks. The trio is very smokey and cool toned shades which I used together for this foresty green look.

Day out: To the SEA Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa!

Biggest Aquarium in South East Asia! Take a (very very long walk) through the biggest Aquarium in SE Asia at Resorts World S.E.A. Aquarium! It's a amazing stop for both locals and tourist, definitely a great place, bigger than most aquarium/water world type aquatic parks in asia it holds the biggest single viewing panel and has over 800 species of marine animals!

My boyfriend and I both hadn't visited the aquarium before and decided to check it out, there was so much to see and it takes you at least 2 hours to walk through the whole thing, longer if you take photos and read descriptions and line up to touch start fishes! (all of which I did of course!)

Review: Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks in 7 shades!

Sensational lipsticks? The Maybelline line of Sensational color lipsticks have really been quite a great wider range of shades here in Singapore where we only get maybe about less than 50% of the full range of permanent items compared to the US or UK. 

Being someone who really really wants to love wearing lip colors, lipsticks seemed like the way to go since I'm not scared of any colors but more weary of finishes that might make my drier lips look and feel bad.I did not pick these all up at once but more of like two or three at a time when there were promotions! Not the biggest fan of lip products in general but I've found some colors and formulas that I love in this line.

FOTD: Signature Navy liner, rosy cheek and German Dinner!

My Signature look! If there's such a thing as a look you tend to do when you want to be flawless or something you just love doing when you're not doing something out of the routine, I'd like to call that a 'signature look'. My signature is usually a shimmery neutral eye with winged eyeliner and a rosy cheek!

I have so many blushes of a 'rosy' shade but this one which was gifted to me in a swap with Pam from JadeinthePalace beauty blog is by far my holy grail of rosy blushes!

FOTD: Sweetie pie eyes and meeting up with a friend!

Sweetie pie eyes! Having finally got my make up greedy hands on Sleek's Oh So Special Palette (my full review here!) I've been using it many times over! It has an amazing range of shades for what I think is a sweet to glamorous neutral palette with a gunmetal, purple, matte black and pinks!

I met up with an old school friend which shares the same love of eating and gaming (although she games almost all the time like how I blog all the time!) We enjoy counterstrike together but it's been a while and she's not in the country!

Pots of gorgeous creme shadows! Ladies behold your sparkling pretty eyes! These two precious pots of shadows are my latest cream shadows to my collection!

Rave Review: Coastal Scents Smokey Palette! (looks included)

Colorful Smokey Palette! I do not own anything from Coastal Scents except this beautiful colorful smokey palette! I wanted this two years ago when I first found it online browsing and finally picked it up at the start of this year at a booth beauty sale that sold NYX, Coastal Scents and ELF make up. These products are not found in Singapore but is being imported by a lady running a blog, wholesale, online make up store 'Smoochiezz'. 

For the price I pay in Singapore, although it's a lot more than what you'd pay in the US this is so worth it! Most eyeshadow quads from Revlon, Maybelline and L'oreal cost at least $20 singapore dollars and I got this for around $50!

Special: Beauty Swap with 'Jade in the Palace'!

Beauty Blogger Swap! Hello all! I'm so excited for November, there's so much happening, I'm planning out every free day of time to see people and get things done! I did a beauty swap with the loveliest Pam from ("Jade in the Palace" beauty blog) and our packages arrived during mid-september! Mine took a bit longer to get to her but hers got to me very quickly!

I wasn't expecting so much in the pacakage as although we agreed to spend a certain amount we did include more things for each other, however I think Pam went all out and got me so much more! So many lovely sample sized products and lovely bits and bobs!

Check out Pam's post on (our swap here!)

Fall inspired rusty eye look! (using NYX trio in Golden, Rust, Walnut Bronze)

Rust and old gold! Those are the kinds of shades besides a good deep olive green, navy, mauve taupe and earth tones that come to mind when I think of fall and winter colors for make up looks! It doesn't make a difference in terms of weather here in Singapore though, it's still damn hot and humid and rainy now!

I used this trio from NYX two years ago for a Christmas look however my skill then was not as good as it is now. My placement, blending and overall look I believe is an improvement! I only realized I used this trio before in a similar way after doing this look!

Review: Soap & Glory Glad Hair Day Conditioner!

Glad Hair Day! Let's make this a quick sweet review! I go through so many shampoos and conditioners but I rotate between my favorites, usually different ones from Herbal Essence, Pantene, Dove, TheBodyShop and other asian brands. I really lust after every single product in the Soap & Glory skincare range but so far this is the only thing I picked up from them.

I picked this tube up in store and sniffed it and OH MY, it smells so fresh, sweet and light...just what I want my hair to smell like!

Review: Sasatinnie HD Hydro Matte 2 way cake SPF 25 in 03 Honey!

Powder me in 03 Honey! Being a major user of pressed powders on a daily basis, I decided to pick this up at Sasa two months ago. It's from their own range of make up called "Sasatinnie" which has a really great variety of make up products.

This powder came in 3 shades but I picked up the third, most yellow one which I find matched my neck the best.

FOTD: Purple passion and home made meatballs!

Purple Passion eye look! Being someone who's actively trying to go through all the colors with my eye looks, I finally touched on purple in a much greater way! I love smoking one color out but here I went in and really pulled out all my purple shadows from my most loved colorful shadow palette!

On the same day, my boyfriend and I made home made bread crumb meatballs, oven baked with spicy tomato pasta!
