Eve Lom Sheer Radiance Translucent Powder : First Impression


I always carry powder with me as my face gets oily by lunch time. The problem with powder is that the compact doesn’t normally come with a brush, so I have to take a separate brush. It’s ok with a medium size handbag, but it becomes bulky when I switch to a smaller handbag. So I always look out for a more convenient solution. So you can imagine my excitement when I heard that the luxury skincare expert brand Eve Lom has a new make up line (!), the line are for base products including a powder (!!), and the design is a powder/brush 2-in-1 tube (!!!). I pre-ordered it right away when it was available from SpaceNK website.

Nails Inc Hyde Park Place: Grey is my new beige


You can never go wrong with nude beige nails: effortless, elegant, classic and timeless. My favourite nude beige has to be Burberry’s Ash Rose.

Recently, I just feel like change – I want an alternative to the usual beige. I looked through my nail polish drawer and noticed Nails Inc’s Hyde Park Place. Applied it and I love it!!

Wooden Sewing Box - A Cute way to store desk stationeries

Apart from makeup, stationery is my other addiction. My favourite shop was used to the Paperchase Flagship at Tottenham Court Road. When the bits and bobs started scattering round my desk, I needed storage to keep them neatly. Yes, there are pen holders, cups, or metal desk organizers from Rymans. I just found them too un-imaginative and too “normal”. I adore those old Victorian desk boxes which are used to hold letters and envelopes, so I began to search online for “stationery boxes”. They were either not too practical or surprisingly expensive. Until one day I had a random strolled in the haberdashery department in John Lewis, I spotted this!! A simple wooden sewing box. It was love at first sight, and I instantly knew this is THE ONE!

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Polish in Moonlit Woods

The bad news about having a sister living in another part of the world is that I miss going shopping together. But the good news is we can cover all bases in brands and products that are only available at certain parts of the world. The new Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Polish is one such example.

Burberry Nail Polish in Ash Rose: An up-dupe to Nails Inc Porchester Square


Despite we are still in winter, recently I am getting back to my nude nails. Like many beauty bloggers, I couldn’t stress enough about my love to Nails Inc Porchester Square for those “not-sure-what-colour-to-wear” days, the nude beige Porchester Square never fails.
