Finally, I'm able to get my hands onto this post! Although I have got quite a good amount of makeup, but if I'm being restricted to only get 3 items and to use it on a daily basis yet able to bring out something different for every look, here's what i'll choose. I will break it into 3 groups of products that I will most probably get depending on my needs (trying to put myself into shoes of my readers who might have different needs from me)

{Combo 1}
This first combination of 3 different products is for those who wish to have people's attention on their eyes, have something beneficial for their skin, has flawless skin or don't care about flaws being seen (that's me!) and has naturally pigmented lips.
a. BB cream
b. Mascara
c. Eye Shadow Quad / Mini Palette

I wasn't feeling well... Negativity in thoughts, feelings of anxiety washed over me... A change of thought led me to the library: get some materials for my research, seek some peace and quiet time, it might ease the tensions and aggravation.

Passed a shelf and this book caught my eyes, my hand reached for it and brought it with me. After getting the resources that I need, I decided to spend some time reading it.

The first page opens into a full view of the beautiful site of Borobudur, a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist temple in MagelangCentral JavaIndonesia, as well as the world's largest Buddhist temple, and also one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world. The temple consists of nine stacked platforms, six square and three circular, topped by a central dome. The temple is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. The central dome is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues, each seated inside a perforated stupa. (Source: Wikipedia)

That, was a quite a sight. I've been there before and seeing that photo spread across the first 2 pages this book brought me back into my memories of Borobudur instantly. That, clears up some of the negativity looming within me.

Inspired by a recent inquiry for Velma Kelly makeup for D&D, and wanting to be in-sync (colour wise) with this drama character "龙幽" played by 鄭元暢Joseph Cheng in «仙剑云之凡» which was scripted based on a Chinese «仙剑奇侠传» aka Legend of Sword & Fairy / Chinese Paladin. The effects only shows on 1 side of the face, which hinted at the "true colour" of a "non-mortal/幽冥人" whose skin emits greenish silvery tones with blue tints hair, brows & lashes.

其實啊,最近有幾個彩妝服務的詢問。其中的一位想畫個歌舞劇 «Chicago» 里 Velma Kelly 的妝,可惜臨時決定不畫了。
我已經做足了功課本想大顯身手,所以索性自己動手。而且阿,最近看了元暢的«龍幽»,讓我好心動哦!所以這個妝是想像著有點戲劇性象徵的幽冥人,透過"半邊真實身份" 和顯現在"凡間"時的模樣。

I have been with Carousell, Qoo10 and Shopee (plus my BlogShop) for some time but I do find that it's hard to organise Spree via these platforms due to several reasons:

- They are shopping platforms, items put up on sale based on stock count
- They do not offer transactional safety / no payment handling
- Less flexibility for buyers to customise their request.

So i chanced upon AirFrov in an email newsletter as member of Vanitee.

Received from my dearest ex-boss and friend Peggy Tan: what each animal in the Chinese Zodiac symbolises and represents. Why and how they are arranged in the Zodiac. Recall the legends of the 12 Zodiac (12生肖的传说/故事), it's show how reflecting what ancesters wished upon their decendents: the desired virtues to possess. I think that this should be shared although this ain't beauty related. 虽然以下的内容源自Whatsapp友群互传的内容(属实性无从追究), 也和美容沾不上边, 我觉得这是一篇的内容很具启发性。也应该大肆转发。我指的是十二生肖的含义及祖先们对于自子孙孙们的期许。

I came across Althea's site around early March this year.. but haven't really wanted to try shopping with them yet as I didn't really heard much about them from people around me.

When I decided to have a trip to seoul, while researching on itinerary, I came across their site again. This time, I saw a call out for bloggers to take part in a shopping experience with Althea. I applied and was really honoured to be given a chance to shop with them. I have 50 credits to spend (equivalent to S$50) and due to may hectic work schedule I didn't get to shop on their site till I was in Korea!

As ironic as it might seems to be, I shopped on Althea while I was in Seoul, using my Galaxy Note 4. Well... it happens that I tried to find some interesting brands while in Myeong Dong and Hongik University area but didn't managed to find any less-heard of brands nor the trendy or crazed phenomenally-hyped items there... I might have been too relaxed n engrossed with food hunt with my family. .. Anyways, I was really glad that I found these items on Althea site, which I doubt that I'll be able to scout for them during my trip in Seoul.

Purchased from: Nice Cosmetics (Seletar Mall branch)
Price: SGD 14.90
Country of Origin: Korea

I was initially drawn in by the cute and colourful packaging. Bullet style shape and curvy body always attracts my attention, topping it off with vibrant colours are just too hard to miss. 

However,  having so many options out there,  just the outer appearance of products aren't enough draw to get me buy it. The real pull factors are the scent and actual color of lipstick in tube and upon application.

Hey everyone~~

I bet you are not totally unfamiliar with the findings of "gold" in Daiso!

Most recently last year (2013), I have gotten a video recorded featuring the hair accessories that I love from Daiso.

Many times if you were to even scout around the neighbourhood accessories stores, the cheapest scrunchies or hair ties are typically slightly more expensive than Daiso's.
I am usually on the look out for scrunchies as they tie up your hair in the most beautiful way that makes it pretty and cute, yet holding power is good!
