Lemming: MAC x Sharon & Kelly Osbourne Limited Edition Collection

Image
It's been a very long while since MAC came up with a limited edition collection that truly excited me. And I'm elated that this one does very much!!!

I'm contemplating on the flat buffer brush and blush. I like the lippie too but I think I already have a similar shade in my stash.


I'm not a neutral eye makeup kinda gal but I'm slowly realizing I cannot keep on putting on colorful eyeshadow as I grow older. And this eyeshadow compact looks neat. I am loving the lip pencil and blush too!

Hope I could still find some stocks when I hit the MAC counters!

Are you captivated by this collection too?

stalking Melissa ... and fantasizing about her!

For the past months, I've been watching Melissa up close. Before you judge me and take me for an obsessive stalker, I'm talking about the one you can find at ZALORA Singapore.

I'm the type of online shopper that keep tabs on my wishlist and thinks many times over before buying something that usually don't go on sale. This is the case with me about Melissa shoes.

A few years ago, I only found out about Melissa through other bloggers posting about this supposedly comfortable yet trendy shoes. At the time I find it unattractive, as the designs available seemed more appropriate for a child. Don't shoot me - that's how I felt before. However, as time passed by, I noticed their line evolved into what I would definitely buy. And now, I want to share with you my wishlist and why each has a soft spot in my heel - oh wait, it should be my heart hehe!


Gold is the selling point of this shoe. I'm a sucker for gem-colored shoes and if it's gold- or silver-toned, I…

tress tales: from braided to beachy

I could say that hair styling is my Achilles' heel. I don't know why but it's something I really struggle to be good at. As much, and may be more, as other women say they would love to learn how to put on eye makeup as prettily and boldly as I do, I'd be so thrilled to be mentored to be even decent at taming my own mane and maybe even make it look interesting. So I really consider it a treat when I sport a beautiful hairstyle.
Last Sunday, I sang for the children service at our church - Hope Church Singapore. The worship team, made up of musicians and singers, can consult with the image ministry to check how they look before they come on stage and minister to God's people through praise and worship. I'm very glad and privileged to be a part of both these teams - as a singer for the worship team and a makeup artist in the image ministry. In the image ministry, there is this sister that's got mad braiding skills. Her name is Jhess. When I asked her to put up…

food - no, wait - "shoes" for thought?

I know this blog is dedicated to makeup but in the recent months, I can't help but be obsessed with shoes like never before. I'm the type of gal that can live on two pairs of shoes - one for work and another for going out. But lately, I've purchased boots, wedges and flats. I guess I'm a late bloomer when it comes to discovering my taste in fashion. Or perhaps am reinventing myself. Whatever it may be, my feet are pretty happy. Although, as always, my wallet isn't. LOL
I'm not sure what it is that attracts me specifically to a certain type of shoe yet but I know I'm staying true to myself with my choices. Take for example these:

Usual thing that comes to my mind when it comes to buying shoes is, "Can I use it for work?" No surprises there. But I must say, I'm tired of wearing black shoes all the time. Bright colored footwear is a very good topic to break the ice with a colleague you bumped in the hallway. (^_~) And if you know me, I love colo…

Fantastic Friday pretty readers! I thought I'd wake up my blog with a short and sweet post. (^_^)
The hubby has been nagging me to clean his toenails for the 3rd time this week. You guessed right, I gave in finally hehe. After doing my wifey duty, I thought, "Why stop there? Slap on some colorful mani!" And so, Deborah Lippmann On The Beach and Ciaté Kaftan united to make me one happy lady!

What seemingly small thing put a smile on your face or perked you up today?
Have a blessed and restful weekend ahead!

Happy New Year beauties!

To be honest, I'm not sure if I still have readers. I write in, like, interval of months. (sighs) Oh well, if you are reading this now, know that I appreciate the precious time you allot to browse what I've cared to put up here hehe.
Ok, so moving on... There's no surprise in the title - it is about Victoria's Secret. That is not to say I wasn't surprised when I saw this sale ad in my inbox! And indeed a timely and pleasant one! (^_~)

I think it is on the 4th day of the sale that I grabbed some goodies at their branch in Wisma Astria. Here's the loot:

The damage: S$49 for 5 cotton panties! For such great quality, sexy, pretty and most importantly, comfortable undies that's very reasonably priced. Did I mention their sizing makes me feel smaller as well? I'm a medium there hehe. How I wish they carry bras in Singapore as well!
If you are thinking of replenishing or updating your undies wardrobe, waste no more time! Their sale is …
