Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong


In light of the continuing pro-democracy protest in Hong Kong (coded as the “Umbrella Revolution”), as a Hong Konger (despite I live in London), I don’t feel right to carry on posting the usual content on this blog. Instead I am taking a short break from blogging this week to send my thoughts and support to Hong Kong.

Magic Heal to Blemishes : Mario Badescu Drying Lotion


My skin was in trouble with blemishes lately… I guess it’s down to the transitional weather – one week it was summer, then it suddenly got much cooler, then it warmed up again! When the weather couldn’t make up its mind, so as my skin… In the past I tried the Origins Super Spot Remover which every beauty blogger raves about… However, it didn’t agree with my skin. My skin is not that sensitive, but the next morning, it left a red mark around the blemish after I dotted on the solution, and the spot didn’t seem to have gone down anyway…

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstars on the go Palette


Since Charlotte Tilbury launched her own makeup range a year ago, her products have right away become the most lust after products. The most “wow” piece would have to be the famous Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Not only the products are amazing in quality, but also the gold vintage packaging is lush!! I would love to carry it round with me but it's slightly big for handbag & it's not like I need to top up bronzer & highlight throughout the day.

I was thinking, "if the size can be smaller, handbag friendly & with products that I can use on the go, that would be a dream come true" And recently my dream did come true! The answer is Filmstars on the go Palette.
