Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

There's a bit of guilt over this haul but I'm trying to push that aside as I write this! So, last month I went on a trip to Japan and China. I did a bit of shopping at Hong Kong airport and more drugstore shopping in Japan. Shiseido has multiple brands under the umbrella and I really wanted to buy them there. A bit of a note about where I shopped in Japan if you're interested. I was at Fort Venus ( in Odaiba) which was next to my hotel. I discovered they…Read more
Just Swatches : OPI Nail Polish

Just Swatches : OPI Nail Polish

Time for another swatch post! Here's my collection of OPI nail polishes. You'll notice most of them are dark, murky colours. I really like their shimmer polishes, I don't have too many brights. It's too difficult for me to pick a favourite because I like so many of them. But my most worn colours are probably Parlez-Vous, Ink, My Private Jet and The World Is Not Enough.   01. Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ - It's a creme finish and a perfect fall colour, a lovely vampy burgundy. 02. Every Month is Oktoberfest - This…Read more
What’s In My Bag : Travel Edition

What’s In My Bag : Travel Edition

On my review posts I'm always talking about how travel friendly products are etc. Since I spent the better half of last month doing just that, I thought I'd do a 'What's in my purse' instead of the usual monthly favorites! Let's dig in! I mainly carried 3 bags. The red one with two transparent sides was for keeping makeup. I kept the products on one side and the brushes on the other. The pink one was also kept in my luggage and it contained skincare stuff, perfume etc. And lastly, the gorgeous…Read more
Magazine Mayhem June 2014

Magazine Mayhem June 2014

It's that time of the month when magazine mayhem comes out! This time round I'm featuring mostly June covers and also some from May which are really great. Enjoy!       I really like the Amber Heard W cover. The colour reminds me of WWII and her stoic grave expression goes with that as well. There are a bunch of FIFA World Cup covers (which is nice to see in a fashion magazine). So many of them feature Gisele Bundchen! I really like the red Versace dress in Harper's Bazaar Thailand. Sonam…Read more

Also if you're interested, I did a Top 10 Spring Nail Polishes post a while back. Here we go!   01. Nail Polish : Colorbar : Apple Martini It's a gorgeous green shade and I love wearing this on my toes.  …Read more

Magazine Mayhem April 2014

Magazine Mayhem April 2014

Hey guys! Here are the covers for April 2014! A lot of Emily Van Camp (Revenge) and Emilia Clarke (GoT) covers this month! Also, just one more day till my Giveaway ends, so enter that if you haven't already!     Let's just get the Kimye cover out of the way. It's reportedly one of the best selling covers so I don't think it will be their last. But if I (try) to look at it objectively, I think they could have Kim look a lot better than she does (on the cover).…Read more
Just Swatches : Mac Powder Blushes

Just Swatches : Mac Powder Blushes

This might seem as too many or too few to some, but here are my Mac blushes! I've had some of these for ages and one is fairly new! Also for reference, my skintone is NC40.   01. Peaches { Sheertone } - I bought this because I felt I was missing out on it (blush wise), and I was right! It's sheer, super blendable and just a great colour to wear all year round. It's a very pretty light peach. 02. Sunbasque { Sheertone Shimmer } - This was the first Mac blush…Read more
Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring

Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring

To be very honest, I don't always follow the seasonal trends when it comes to nail polish. My mood and what catches my eye pretty much dictates what I'm wearing at the moment. But for those who do, here are my top 10 picks for spring and summer! I like blues, greens and this year, the radiant orchid shade as well. Let's get started!       01. H&M Newlyweds - This is a lovely sheer polish which has a milky white base and gold shimmer densely scattered. It looks very understated and…Read more
