August 2014 Favourites

August 2014 Favourites

It's that time of the month to share my favourites! I have a few unusual ones here, because I can't really bring myself to fully review a hand wash and a hand sanitizer. Let's get cracking!       01. Eye Cream : Clinique : All About Eyes Rich After my trip in June, my eye area was in serious trouble. It was extremely dry and I thought it might be best to start using an eye cream. Now, this is mainly for hydrating the area. Other concerns like dark circles ( mine…Read more
August 2014 List Love

August 2014 List Love

I haven't done one of these for a long time. For new readers, List Love is basically where I list down notable bloggers, books and in general anything else I'm chuffed about!     Link Love - Books 1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - I was in the mood to read a nice thriller and this was on the Kindle bestseller list. I liked it! The ending was a bit unexpected but overall I liked the mystery! 2. Sir Vidia's Shadow by Paul Theroux  - It's a very different book from what I've read…Read more

It's been a while since I did a wishlist post. I think the last one was in March! After my last haul, I'm going to cool it down a bit but these are some things I've had my eye on. Let me know things on your wishlists!       01. Frends : Headphones : Layla : Rose Gold These look so sick! The rose gold and white with that sleek design, it just looks amazing!   02.

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

Nail Polish : Max Factor : Fantasy Fire Have I not raved about this polish enough? Click and see the review for some duochrome awesomeness.   02. Nail Polish : China Glaze : Fast Track I love this neutral polish. The formula, the gold shimmers, it's perfect.   03. Blush : Nars : Douceur I'm going back to some…Read more

April 2014 Favourites

It's time for the monthly favourites! This is a bit of March and April combined! As you can see there are quite a few nail polishes. I think I just forget to include nail polishes quite often in these. When I do remember, I tend to include a lot of them. 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
