Holiday Special: Day 3 in Patong, Phuket Thailand! (May 2016)

Day 3 in Phuket Thailand! This travel post is from last year when my boyfriend and I took a trip just before his birthday in May. On our third day, I had booked a full day trip where we would go island hopping covering 7 islands but the main attraction of the day was our stop over and lunch at the Similan Islands which are only opened for a few months of the year.

It was one of the best trips we'd been on while on a beach holiday and we had never seen such gorgeous azure blue waters. Highly recommended for those willing to spend a full day on an ocean trip! Keep in mind, none of my photos have been altered in any way! The colors are true to what my camera captured!

Lunching at Wheeler's Yard!

Lunching to reward myself! Wheeler's Yard is a well known cafe outlet in Singapore known of its theme of bicycles. This outlet which I visited is the original and serves as a cafe, rest stop for cyclists and also has a bicycle shop. I've seen it all over instagram in Singapore as their infamous metal gate with bikes have people snapping photos left, right and on repeat due to how photogenic it looks.

Review: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush!

Ambient Lighting Blush! Let's be honest, although it's been more than two years since the release of this very popular product, the line of Ambient products from Hourglass has yet to fully die down. Their powders have lots of crazy fans along with the blushes and bronze pieces in the line. I have never been one to buy things when they first release and I did not. This purchase was made a good year and more after the release. At that time, you still could not buy Hourglass products in Singapore (there used to be a stand alone boutique shop years ago I found out but it had closed down some years back) and therefore when I saw this available on a popular local online cosmetic shop I was one of many who made purchases in their pre-order and paid a very hefty price for it.

My Everday easy warm bronze eye!

Everyday bronze eye! Neutral eye looks have been my go to the last whole year! When I was younger I used to look at eye make up inspiration and always thought that I'd wear more colorful looks but the older I get I realize the simplicity and ease of a flawless neutral look. Here is an easy light bronzy eye look I did sometime back when I still had a full fringe! I'm currently just about done growing it out and plan to go fringeless for a while.

Review: Hada Labo Air BB Cream in Natural Beige!

Air BB Cream! For the last 5 years BB creams and BB products have just exploded! I've tried quite a few BB creams by now and when I saw this by Hada Labo I just had to get it despite already having more than enough foundations at home. For those who don't know Hada Labo is a Japanese skincare brand which is known for being gentle and effective.

There were only two shades for this product which is very typical of BB creams traditionally to have only 1, 2 or 3 shades at most. The shade I have, Natural Beige is the lighter of the two.

The 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag!

Deadly Sins! What sins are you guilty of? Beauty sins is what's up for today's blog post! I've been wanting to do Tags every now and then and this one has been on my radar for a bit. Browsing online I've noticed two versions for this where a few questions are different so I've gone with a mix replacing two questions from one version with those from the other as I didn't find them as relevant.

This tag tackles the 7 biblical sins which are greed, wrath, gluttony, sloth, pride, lust and envy with beauty related questions! It's nice to do things like this once in a while so I hope everyone enjoys reading my answers to this tag!

Review: Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara Advanced Film in 01 Black!

Advanced Film Mascara! For those who may not know my holy grail mascara that I have repurchased at least 1-2 times a year for about 4-5 years now has been from Kiss Me Heroine. I've loved both their Long & Curl and Volume & Curl formulas, both which are super black, super waterproof and both add lots of volume and length! I repurchase both types and in the last year I've tried 3 other versions from them, the Impact Frame and Curl, Long & Curl Super Film and now this Advanced Film version. 

I'll be honest, the first two the Impact Frame and Super Film versions were utterly mediocre. The Impact Frame had a wand that clumped on far too much mascara and at best gave too natural looking lashes as the formula would not build. The Advanced Film had a brush that held too much product and the formula also didn't layer the lashes properly which meant more time applying for very very 'meh' results. Hence I was quite on the fence about purchasing this new version but then again, they product my holy grail mascara so I just HAD to try it!

Date night: Teal smokey eyes and thin crust pizzas at Alt Pizza!

Date night with pizza! For those who didn't know pizza isn't a 'cheap' food here in Singapore...not at all! Even take away pizza meals for 2 could buy you a casual restaurant meal. That plus considering the huge variety of local foods in Singapore being available very cheaply at hawker center and food courts, pizza isn't eaten very often by most folk here. Pizza companies and authentic Italian pizza places have grown in numbers the last many years and it's very easy to find places all over Singapore making pizza properly and in different styles too!

My boyfriend had tried a pizza joint called "Alt Pizza" which his family sometime ago and with his recommendation we headed there for dinner!

Rave Review: Glamourflage Lip Balms (Mellow May, Bijou Beo, Daisy Delight, Bella Blaze)!

Glamourflage Lip Balm! For those who cannot live without a good rich luxurious lipbalm...HIGH FIVE! Since I was young, my lips tend to get very dry very easily. I must mention that I am extremely hydrated, I drink the most liquids out of all my friends and also colleagues and even at home but still my lips are always on the border of being dry or are dry most the time. For me it's key to have a thick layer of lipbalm before sleeping every night.

I've tried so many brands of lip balm, most from the drugstore and a lot from random high end, medical and trending brands. Many balms have been just okay or keep my lips hydrated enough to feel 'normal' but are not rich enough to heal my lips back from a dry spell. I gave this brand a chance when I saw it selling on a local beauty site and ever since then I've yet to try anything else better.
