Totally taupe eyes with a mauvey rose cheek!

Totally Taupe! This very popular cool toned brown shade although is super popular and looks great on many ladies is a shade I rarely actually use. I tend to always gravitate towards bronzes, caramels, golden toned browns and other pinky toned neutrals. I do find taupe a very complementary shade on my eyes but personally prefer other tones and shades of browns. 

When I do want an eye look with a taupe shade I gravitate towards a trio from Majolica Majorca which features a gorgeous rich silvery taupe shade! (see my review here)

Review: Estee Lauder Travel Exclusive Pure Color Gloss Collection! (Duty Free)

Pure Color Gloss Collection! I've always been one who loves to buy, collective and give mini sized duty free products. Everytime I take a flight and have to pass through an airport that has a good cosmetic section at duty free I'll easily take half an hour to an hour and a half browsing, swatching and buying at least one or two items! 

Here we have a gorgeous set of mini sized lipglosses from Estee Lauder! For the last 6 months and still currently at duty free in south east asia. In the past I've bought a set of Dior lipglosses at duty free (see review here) and a Juicy tubes set from Lancome (see review here) so I just had to get this!

Holiday Special: Day 1 & 2 in Bangkok, Thailand! (Jan 2015)

 Day 1 & 2 in Bangkok, Thailand! I recently was away for 5 days with my mom on a food and shopping trip to the most awesome and jam packed Bangkok! My blog ran as normal as I was gone as I always pre-write my blog post so I just had to click 'post' while I was away! It's super easy for first time travellers or seasoned visitors to get around Bangkok city cheaply and easily! It's a bustling city for those who love food, shopping, friendly people and a huge array of old school markets and upscale modern hotspots!

This post is of our first evening there and the next day's first morning in Bangkok. I will be breaking up my holiday in posts by days and then separate posts for the haul of snacks, beauty and then skincare shopping! Hope everyone enjoys the photos!

Review: Innisfree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil!

Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil! Innisfree is not only a super affordable korean brand but they have such a great range of make up removers! From foaming cleanser to waters and oil, they are formulated with fruit/plant ingredients and extracts like apple and green tea! I totally was on the hunt for a cleansing oil and after using the tester in store to remove a lipstain and eyeliner in store I thought I should bring this guy home! I totally want the green tea cleansing water too, so I'll be going back for that!

10 Things: I Love Eating!

Things I love eating! After reading another fellow bloggers post about foods she'd rather not eat I realized that I HAD to do a post about all the foods I love to eat. I pretty much will eat almost anything that's cooked and tasty. I like all types of flavors, spices, cooking techniques and cuisines. It's almost hard for me to think of food I don't like!

In the past I wrote a post called "10 Things: I wish I knew about make up as a Teen" (see it here!) and so I thought I'd be extending the '10 Things' series on my blog with this post of things I love eating!

My Perfect Smokey Pink-Brown eyes! (1028 Brownie Eyes Palette)

Perfect Smokey Pink-Brown Eyes! For many ladies a neutral eye look tends to be quite simple, maybe one shadow or two shades at most. Something light in color and wearable to the office or for the day time. However when I think of the perfect neutral eye it has depth, shimmer, some smokiness but all from neutral shades and no black eyeshadow!

This look is the epitome of my perfect type of smokey neutral eyes. It had pink and brown tones, bright and dark and lots of shimmer as well as being perfectly blended out thanks to the amazing quality of eyeshadow from my 1028 Brownie Eyes palette!

Rave Review: Banna Fruit Scrubs in Tamarind, Coconut and Pineapple!

Fruity body scrubs! As someone who doesn't use many body care products I've been trying out a lot more gels and scrubs the last two years and I particularly love scrubs and washes with fruit/plant ingredients. For those who visit beach towns in Thailand like Phuket/Krabi/Koh Samui it's a MUST to visit all the small souvenir shops as some sell these local made body products that smell so much of authentic fruit/plant ingredients!

When on my holiday in Krabi, Thailand last year I picked out three fruit based scrubs at a shop having a deal on buying three tubs! It was a shop filled with at least 15 varieties of scrubs/moisturizers, other beauty products and lots of accessories and jewelry. Even buying one would be a steal as they are sooo affordable in Thailand compared to the brands that sell similar types of products in Singapore!

Food Post: Things baked in November/December 2014! (cake, cookies, cupcakes)

Year end home baked goodies! Since last year it's become a habit for me to bake more towards the end of the year. The blogsphere towards year end is just flooded by tutorials and recipes and posts of beautifully decorated cakes, sweet home made desserts, cakes, pies and everything yummy! Last year my boyfriend and I made cookies and cranberry buns around the end of the year which I featured in a similar year end baking post! (See the full post here!)

This year I tried to step it up a bit and although I didn't bake many items I think the quality of everything was really good! For those who missed my recent home made cinnamon sugar rolls post (see it here!) Also if you'd like to see my banana muffins and cream custard pie (see it here!)

Continue here for photos of all the baked goods!
