We all know that there are tons of sample subscription boxes out there but most are tailored for the ladies. Sample subscription boxes if you’re not familiar with them send you a box of samples ranging from lifestyle to beauty products every month to your doorstep. Even Michelle Phan has her own called Ipsy. Now there’s Blackbox which is the first box that’s going to make our boys happy too and psst…it’s completely..FREE.

I guess I just wanted to tell everyone..that I’m back! If you were right in front of me, you’d probably look at me funny and all for good reason. To be honest, when I went brunette I just didn’t feel like myself. All of 2013, I just felt like I was trying to be somebody else so today, we say hello to the well…original me. I guess going black for me means a lot to me. For one, I don’t ever have to worry about looking like a two toned squirrel with my roots again and secondly, I don’t have to damage my hair anymore by retouching it every month. But frankly, I went back to black because it’s just me and I don’t —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

You might have already seen this post because I did a video about it a few days ago(?) BUT this time it’s cooler because not only is it really early in the morning and I’m more prone to typing nonsense (just kidding) I have tried some of the Smashbox products already but of course haven’t wanted to touch the AIW yet.

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette

Yes, you’re already probably fed up with seeing this palette posted up on everyone’s onsugar blog but I have to say that it seriously just grabbed my macbook off my favourite thing throne and threw it on the floor. (ok —–> Read More

We might have the moisturiser of the season, the blush of the century, but what about our toothpaste? After all, a smile is just as important as a clear complexion or a rockin’ lipstick! I’ve been using Darlie Expert White toothpaste for a while now, and I’m in love with the stuff. I first got it in one of the sample boxes, Black Box, and have been using it ever since. When Elle Magazine invited me to their Girl’s Day Out with Darlie, I couldn’t wait. The event was not just about perfect pearly whites but about all the other aspects that help us look great too – like your make-up, your diet and also how you look in photos! Thought it would be great —–> Read More

It’s that time of the month again! Time to touch up my roots and give my hair a new revamp of color. I simply loved my experience at Organic Hair Professional so I decided to give them another visit to see how well their organic hair dyes perform. I mean, I’ve never tried an organic hair dye before, much less knew they actually existed. Smelling strong chemical laden hair dyes have always been the norm so I was really excited for this visit! By the way, I also just wanted to share with you how I book my appointments – it’s through this nifty website called Tab a Salon at www.tabasalon.com!

This is for everybody who feels like they’re on the edge about whether they should go ahead and do what they love or they should just conform. I’ve been exactly where you are. I just wanted to tell you to hold on to your dreams. Find something you love and hold on tight because that very thing that you love doing is exactly what the rest of the world is hunting for. It’s called your purpose. And man, you just found yours. Take it, make something out of it and I believe you’ll feel like you haven’t worked a day in your life.

I remember my moment. I was in the boardroom —–> Read More

I guess it’s like that time of the month again. No, not that one – time to dye my roots. Of course back in the naturally black hair days, it wasn’t a problem but now I finally know how it feels. Other than my roots, I’ve always felt like my highlights were a bit too strong, especially the ones near my face. They made me look like a forest fox. Instead of going to the salon, I thought why not try a box dye – one that you can get at Watsons, Guardian or any local drugstore. And hey, it’s good for your wallet too because we know how expensive salon dyes can get!

Hey Everyone,

How To

Applying perfect eyeliner can be a difficult task for the newbie in make-up to some of the experts. It’s something that requires practice and patience. But if you’re out of both, here is a really easy way to put training wheels on your eyeliner. All you need is a dark eye-shadow like a matte black or brown that will be your eye definer and a sharp synthetic angled eyeliner brush. Use these two tools as your training wheels. Simply draw on the eye shadow where you would put your eyeliner. The synthetic angled eyeliner brush (I recommend the Ecotools one) will help you draw precise lines with the shadow.

Although it’s been a while since Burberry beauty landed on Singapore shores, I remember still feeling pretty excited that this classic luxury brand had finally made it’s own make-up line following in the footsteps of Chanel, Dior and YSL. Skeptics say that they can’t possibly make as good a product as they can with their fashion, but with YSL’s touche eclat, Chanel’s vita and matte lumiere and Dior’s lipsticks and nail polishes, it’s only about time till they come out with their own cult product.

Hope the Monday blues didn’t get to you today, but if they did, here’s a cupcake and a mighty good one at that. Chancing upon The Hummingbird Bakery in London was by no surprise a mistake. My parents being fans of antiques led the way to Portobello Market at Notting Hill in London, a great place for trinkets and basically people’s old stuff. I’m not a fan of either and was a bit bored until the next thing I know, I was standing in front of The Hummingbird Bakery.

I went pretty starstruck since my sister has the books and has made delicious and I MEAN delicious creations from it and my wonderful boyfriend —–> Read More

The first time I spotted Caviar nails, it instantly reminded me of yummy vanilla cupcakes and sprinkles. Of course, I thought it was a bit odd and then it grew on me. It’s an adorable nail trend and after seeing Fleur De Force’s blog post on the MUA (Make Up Academy) Nail Constellations, I had to go out and get myself some from Superdrug, the local health/beauty pharmacy in London. It’s much like Watsons in Singapore or Priceline in Australia. I obviously couldn’t wait to sprinkle magic on my fingernails so here’s my first try at it! I think the MUA Nail Constellations are great, they’re the cheaper version of the known Ciate nails and only cost me about £3!
