Enchanting Gradient Golden Berry eyes! (Japanese dessert and chicken dinner)

Enchanting eyes with golden berry tones! When I think golden browns and purple tones I always think of fall and winter but these shades honestly are perfect year round especially on us ladies with dark brown eyes! This look was inspired by the cranberry dress I wore. I wanted something that was complex and had multiple tones but yet subtle and colorful. This look wasn't planned out so I totally was in love when it turned out so well.

On the day I did this look my boyfriend and I headed into town for a movie! Before the movie I had a craving for a soft hot waffle so we did stop by a casual Japanese cafe before the movie. Afterwards we had dinner at our favorite Indonesian Ayam Penyat restaurant that's famous for their fried smashed chicken rice dish!

Food post: Mini banana chocolate muffins and home made pizza!

Straight out of the oven! Here I bring you just two things I baked sometime ago! I love using our big wall oven but it's been out cold and not working for the last two months so I haven't been able to bake any cookies, cakes and whole chickens! Really bummed but it should be fixed in the next month so I'll be bake baking! We have a small table top oven which will make do!

Here my boyfriend and I made pizzas and I made mini banana muffins to bring to work! The boyfriend loves making home made dough, the type that is meant to rise over night slowly in the fridge and then proofed again the next day giving us a strong, lovely crust!

Review: Beauty Buffet The Bakery Lollipop Blusher in 01!

Lollipop blusher! Are the rest of you like me and get all happy inside when you see make up that looks like candy/food? I'm a huge admirer of make up and skincare that is packaged, scented, colored or themed like food of some sort but I personally don't own many items like so. This blush I picked up while on holiday with my boyfriend in Bandung, Indonesia (see the make up haul here!)

'The Bakery" is a line under Beauty Buffet which is a brand from Thailand which sells a huge range of skincare and make up with products made mostly all in Thailand and Korea. (See my Bangkok make up haul here and skincare haul here!)

Rich Burgundy eyes and lips! (Lunch at Wine Connection Katong)

Rich Burgundy make up and a delicious lunch! It may seem from my blog posts that include food that I eat out or cook amazing meals quite often (which isn't untrue) but the truth is that I don't eat out at even casual outlets very frequently! My family and myself mostly cook at home and eat at the local food courts as food is affordable and in general good quality. 

I've been wanting to eat at Wine Connection for a while as the prices of all their food items are CHEAPER than places considered lower in quality and class such as Swensens and Jack's Place. The prices range mostly from $7-25 for appetizers to main courses with certain more special items over $30 like their Surf & Turf platter ($49) and their Paella ($29). Not to mention the huge range of wines from champagne, moscatos, whites and reds! From affordable to more expensive pieces!

Special: Chinese New Year 2015! (Reunion Dinner and visiting family)

Happy year of the Sheep! To be honest I'm not quite sure if it's a goat or sheep this year as half the portrayals of the animals look like fluffy sheep and the other half have horns and look like goats! Apparently it's the year of the 'ram' to be most specific! I wish all those of Chinese descent a prosperous and happy year ahead! As a chinese Singaporean and living in a country with a predominantly Chinese population the lunar new year is a big deal here.

Expect red and gold lanterns and decorations all over town, supermarkets filled with shelves and rows of traditional snacks and foods for the occasion and streets in Chinatown shut down for temporarily stalls to set up to do business of goods and foods! We also have a public holiday but unlike China or other Chinese countries ours is only a day or two and not a week or two!

Holiday Special: Day 4 in Bangkok, Thailand! (Jan 2015)

Day 4 in Bangkok, Thailand! Here I have my forth day of my Bangkok holiday that I took with my mom earlier last month! It was trip that was basically all shopping, eating, walking everywhere and great foot massages! For those who haven't visited Bangkok it's one of the best cities to visit in south east asia for food, modern malls and historical places!

On day 4, we basically visited MBK center and then chatuchuk market, however although it was a friday there were only about 20% of the stalls open! Our flight back was on Saturday evening and hence we decided to just drop by around 6 when there were some shops open to take a look!

Rave Review: Eskinol Papaya Smooth White and Calamansi Spot-less White cleanser!

Papaya and Calamansi toners! As a girl who tends to have skin that gets slightly oily throughout the day I love using a toner on days that I'm not wearing any make up or on my face after my make up is removed at night. I love trying toners made with different extracts and I prefer a toner that's really astringent and alcoholic as it really helps to keep my skin matte and my skin doesn't dry out easily.

These two toners are from a Fillopino brand that's probably sold in the Phillipines but I bought these at Lucky Plaza in Singapore which is a mall filled predominantly with Filopino store holders! At first I was confused and wasn't sure what this was as I'm used to the name 'toner' but these are called 'cleansers'! When in Indonesia toner is called 'tonic' and hence I realized this has several names!

Review: Clio Gelpresso Pencil Gel Liner Mini Be Brown set!

Clio Gelpresso Brown eyeliner set! As an girl with smaller asian lids, who has oilier skin and who has super sensitive watery eyes...finding a pencil eyeliner that will stay vibrant and long lasting without smudging is quite a task! For few years I tried looking for a typical waterproof pencil and nothing will stay in my lower waterline for more than an hour however more than two years ago when I discovered Clio's gelpresso eyeliners I had hit jack pot!

For those interested in seeing my review on the full sized Clio Gelpresso gel liner pencils (see here!) This set was purchased online during a sale from one of my favorite sellers Best Price BREEZY on the website Qoo10, which is a sort of regional asian  ebay type site. Do check out their other awesome asian cosmetics/skincare products and look out for their sales and great exclusive products!

Special: Valentine's Day Fuchsia Pops look 2015! (Korean BBQ lunch and dinner)

Valentine's look, day and food! Hope everyone who spent valentine's either alone, with friends, family and your significant other had a great time! I saw plenty of ladies posting up valentine's look before the day itself and I had planned to but unfortunately fell sick on the day I wanted to do my look and therefore here is the look I did for the day itself! 

I knew I wanted to incorporate straight up bold hot pink in my look but I decided I'd do it in pops of color on my lips, nails and hand bag instead of it being on my eyes as I usually would. My boyfriend and I visited for the first time a popular affordable Korean BBQ restaurant and then for dinner with spent out time at my place eating hams, foie gras, cheese, grapes, bread and sweet wine!
