  1. My previous post might portray such flawless skin but big no, I am far from it. Makeup do wonders, there are no ugly gals, no lazy gals, only the right motivation I reckon lol side question: what's your motivation to look good? ^^
    My recent trip to Singapore Sephora at ION back February, I bought the most expensive spot treatment for myself! SGD50 for this! I have never in my life spent that much on a pimple cream but I console myself that I really need it. When the TOTM is here, I usually have a few small zits here and there, and they are easily dried up by Oxy, Clinique, Vichy or some toner which contain alcohol. But few months ago, I'll occasionally have this mega bit cyst pimple! Arghh it is red, painful, and take a long while to go away sob sob. So I was on a hunt for a good drying agent for these annoyance grrrr
    (it's actually less tan in colour, more like white beige)

    Acne cream that conceals! Drying Cream is an effective treatment to dry up small under the surface bumps and pimples. Just a few dabs smoothed on the erupted areas prevent pimples from getting larger and spreading out of control. Aloe rich cream conceals and heals erupted pimples. 
    HOW TO USE: Apply sparingly on pimples by dabbing with fingertip until cream blends into the skin. Best when applied after moisturizer, before make-up.
    INGREDIENTS: Deionized Water, Zinc Oxide,Aloe, Beeswax,Cetyl Alcohol,Lemon Extract, Colloidal Sulfur,Ervol,Octyl Palmitate,Ichthammol,Polysorbate 80, Titanium Dioxide,Polyglycerylmethacrylate (and) Propylene Glycol
    What are my thoughts about this?
    • Packaging: Not that good, because I will have to use cotton bud to pick it up so it is not that hygienic, but then again, it is a generous tub! I read reviews that it can last 12 months!
    • Texture: Thick cream 
    • Smell: Hmm this is kinda hard to describe. It's herbal, clean, not too pungent
    • Reminded me of Nixoderm!!!
    sorry if this pic gross you out, it kinda gross me out too >.<
    Bah! Whenever I get these zits, my mum would nag me "Did  you put on some Nixoderm? Do it now." Do you gals know of this brand? It's been around for ages like 30 years? I actually totally forgot about this brand till I bought Mario Badescu Drying Cream, because the smell suddenly struck me! ps: Nixoderm is only a fraction cost, around RM5?
    Does it work?
    Reviews by others said it only takes a day for them, and the pimple will be gone by morning. But it does not seems to be the case for me! Don't get me wrong, it does make the pimple go away but like 3 weeks for me?!?! Okay, maybe because it is a mega one, like I said lol But the pimple might subside, but I felt a tiny bump still there and discolour on the spot. You be my judge:
    I have a love/hate relationship with this product. I'll update few more months later about my feelings on this. If any of you have used this, please share with me your experience in using Mario Badescu Drying Cream

  2. Gym in the house

    Mar 30, 2011

    My weight in 2011 = 65kg
    My weight in 2001 = 55kg
    In 10 years, I have gained 10 kg?!?! That's like 1kg/year. I am NOT happy. I don't really care about the weight, but probably about the fitness and stamina. I want a lower heart rate when I run, more control breathing when I puff, and no jelly arms! I used to 'play' my grandma's jelly arms when I was really young ;p
    SO had planned a in-house "gym" session for me this week. It is freaking tough and tiring and painful and uncomfortable. He said, "Being fit and healthy is not like being in a spa." He always have an answer to all my complaints grrr My regime is only 30 minutes daily for the 1st week and will go up to 60 minutes alternate days on 2nd week onward. I quickly asked, "Then when do I stop doing these sh*t?" Again he come back with an answer that sound good to him, but definitely not good for me, "No stop, till your last breath" grrr
    I am never that super active while growing up; not like the champ above lol My type of exercise when I was young: ride alot on bmx bicycles (I prefer these bikes, because I stand on them rather than sit AND can go off road and jumping over speed bumps!); play some basketball after school; tried to play volleyball after got hooked on the old Japanese tv series but I am not good at it; tried to play tennis but I always run after the ball more than hitting them; played badminton and love torturing my sisters for running up and down the courts on my long and short hits; tried swimming but can't get grasp freestyle, so I'm still stuck on 'frog' style; well that's about it.
    My exercise plan:
    1. Up and Down the stairs (8 to 10 times) - this is HARDCORE, so painful
    2. Lift up a pail of water up to the chest level, straight back, wide stand (8 times/set, do 4 sets)
    3. Push up, table level (8 times/set, do 4 sets)
    4. Sit up (8 times/set, do 4 sets) - this is also HARDCORE for me
    5. Jumping, Kicking, Punching, Stabbing, it's like a self defence class lol
    By 30 minutes, I am drench with sweat and have very very painful thighs. SO wants me to upgrade next week, with a backpack running up the stairs >.<
    I am not going to look at the scale until end of next week. Wish me luck that I survive this week.

  3. These are just some collections of my own FOTDs, no really special occassion, just random days that I felt good and start taking pictures of myself ^^
    Above: I took this after I had my long hair chop off >.< This was in February 2011.
    Above: Maybe I'll do some lip swatch, since I really like how my lips look here.
    Above: An attempt to grey out my eyes
    Above: This look with fake hair bangs
    Above: I usually do this simple look for my everyday work and at home.
    Above: Lazy smokey eyes look. This was taken early 8am, when the power went off at 7am, I couldn't sleep anymore because of the heat (air conditioning was switch off), so I quickly makeup and went out with SO to have breakie at Old Town @ Taipan.
    Above: Thought I put a look of how I look wearing my bookish glasses.
    I think I really like my eyes with dark black heavy eyeliners, kinda bigger and widen my eyes, gives the illusion of double eyelids ^^ Although I am quite tan to suit coral blushers, but I secretly wish I am fair enough to pull off pink blushers ^^ I prefer bushier eyebrows, but I don't have the skill to draw on them more. I love my lips because they are full and plump and don't chapped, but I am never keen to put on nice lippy colours as I smoke and it is annoying to have lipstick on the stick >.<

    Random question that asked Elle "Why did you started beauty blogging and will you stop?"
    I have always wanted to start a diary-of-some-sort, but always feel ridiculous to write things down without pictures to describe it back to me. And it was a hassle to go to the photo shop and have my pictures developed and attached it in a physical book. By then, I would have stopped (yes lazy moi). So online blogging to me is my diary, my time-capsule, where I can read back what has been happening in my life, year after year, especially how my looks will change over the months and years, the trends that I was following and will be following, it just encapsulate what is going on in my life. Will I stop blogging, I do hope I will never stop. I want to be at 70 years old, and post a picture of myself at that time, next to a picture of myself at 30 years old :) That is so super coool! Would I mind if my grandchildren get to read this, a big no, they will have a cool grandma! Well, just my opinions, this may changed too in the future, but right now, I enjoy blogging :)

  4. In this post, I'll like to review another lashes by KKcenterHK lashes that was sent to me few weeks ago. You can check out my previous review on ES A10 lashes here.
    Allow me to introduce to you ES A108. This is a beautiful slant/curve dense lashes. It reminds me of the recent movie "Black Swan" by Oscar Winner, Natalie Portman. How so? Because the word just sprung up into my mind when I attached it on moi :)
    Initially, I thought they might be too dramatic for a day wear lashes, because it is so dense, gives the illusion of razor sharp lashes, very alluring looking as well. From view below, it looks like claws coming out from my eyes, so cool!
    Bottom: View with camera flash. Doesn't my eyes look dangerously amazing here?
    I think these ES A108 gives me bedroom dreamy eyes. It kinda elongated my eyes, giving an impression of pulling my eyes even wider.
    So, wore them out for a 'test drive' again! I love it, another winner for fake eyelashes. Just a note, they are not as soft as ES A10, therefore it is easier to attached them but just need abit tad more glue for the side/corner, because it may spring loose. Other than that, it is fantastic!
    Lots of reviewers had said that KKcenterHK did not provide eyelash glue in the box. I did not think this as a big deal factor, because I prefer my own glue, which is Koji Makeup Eyelash Fix clear glue, which I got mine on Sasa online. Glue or no glue, these lashes are great!

    ps: This product was sent to me for review, but my opinions are still my very own. Please read my disclaimer page for more info.

  6. Jen (Australia) from QuestJen, recently threw a great giveaway and I was the 2nd prize winner! I just got the package last few weekd and would like to share my reviews of them. First of, this was the prize she showed on her blog:
    Here is the sweet package that I received. She had individually wrapped them with bubble wraps, how thoughtful!
    1.  Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser for sensitive skin
    Milky texture and it absorbs pretty quickly into the skin. No fragrance, no lingering stickyness on hands nor on face. I've always like skincare for sensitive skin, because they have lesser harming ingredients, and more natural soothing ingredients. Pro: No breakout from using it. Con: My face oiliness is still uncontrollable >.<

    2. Laneige Professional Makeup Remover Multi Cleanser
    When squeezed out, it feels milky on my palm. It has a very very light pink tint colour and have no fragrance smell at all. Then when I massage it into my face (with makeup on), I can feel really fine tiny pin size grain on my palms. Really consider a multi cleanser as it also exfoliates! I think this can be over drying for some, but I felt really clean and matte after washing (maybe because I am oily skin?). Will I purchase the full size? Hmm it's about 180ml for RM100 here, and I usually prefer a foam cleanser, so I'll have to think about it.

    3. NYX Body Glitter Gel - Sunshine
    I love this glitter gel! The glitters are tiny gold dust-like, no fragrance, no greasyness, and it said it can go on hair! The pump is convenient, I really wish I can get this in Malaysia.

    4. Australis Nail Colour -Pink Pluto
    This is a generous big bottle of nail colour (hopes it don't dry too quickly!). I would describe the colour as light pink pearly champagne. The brush is long (which is a plus, because I like brushes to touch the bottom of the bottle) and it's smooth. The sheen is pretty great, under white light, my nails just shine white lol I really miss this brand, I used to love Australis eyeshadows before I was introduced to Japanese brands. Anyhoo, I put on some Anna Sui nail stickers, now isn't that girly? ^^
    Y'all have a nice weekend!

    ps: I am having trouble installing "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 - Publisher" on my new pc, some "PubWW.cab" file missing and this is a big drag, because I need Publisher to do my digital scrapbooking photo borders :(

  7. I think by now, everyone is familiar with KKcenterHK for their beautiful fake eyelashes and wigs.
    I have received 5 types of lashes, and today I am going to review ES A10.
    • Not clear bands
    • Crisscross lashes, good for density
    • Shorter lash on inner eyes, longer lash on outer eyes
    • Very soft, very natural, but may be hard to stick on eyelids
    As you can see, it has a curve length, and this is super nice because it does really give a very natural look on the eyelashes. I reckon this model ES A10 is aim to look very natural, that is why is is super soft. That can be good, but it is quite difficult for a not-so-expert-not-everday-user person like moi, to stick it on my eyelids (took me about 15mins on each eye hehe).
    This is a very preliminary look. No makeup. I just stick it on to get a feel how it looks like. Although I did say it is very soft lashes, but it still have the strength to lift some skin, to create a double eyelid for me! I usually go for hard lashes, because I want to create the double eyelids, but now I don't need to!
    Side look. I really like it. I put a pink circle on my left eye, to differentiate the length of lashes.
    This is how I look without makeup, just with ES A10 lashes.
    With eye makeup
    Took the lashes for a 'test drive' lol Overall, I really love them. There are quite unique and before this, I was always skeptical about soft lashes, but now, not anymore! So, I'll be doing more reviews on the other lashes that I have gotten soon, at the mean time, look smashingly beautiful gals!

    ps: This product was sent to me for review, but my opinions are still my very own. Please read my disclaimer page for more info.
