(Late) Announcement! First Blogmas on F&B!

After giving some serious thoughts, I decided to do Blogmas this year! That is to blog everyday in December until Xmas.

Xmas 2013 Gift Guide #3: Gifts under £10/ Stocking Fillers/ Gifts for the Tree

This is my 3rd and final post in my Xmas guide series. If you have missed my previous guides, you can click here for my Gift Guide for over £25, and here my 2nd guide for Gifts £25 or under. This post is all about stocking filler, gifts for the tree, secret santa, added extras to a main gift - They are basically gifts £10 under. And yes, there are quite a good selection out there too!!

Xmas 2013 Gift Guide #2: Gifts for £25 or under

Welcome back to my 2nd Xmas Gift Guide in the series. If you miss my first guide, which was gifts over £25, you can click here to catch up. This guide is all about gifts for £25 or under. These are the mid-range gifts that everyone is looking for. I will keep each description brief, otherwise it will be a post that you will never scroll to the end!

Xmas 2013 Gift Guide #1: Gifts over £25

This is the first ever F&B Xmas gift guide! I have planned three guides in this series: Gifts over £25, Gifts £25 or under, and Gift under £10/Stocking Fillers. Today, I start off with the Gifts over £25. I have only picked 5 gifts in this category, as I feel that under the current economical climate, let's be realistic - we are all trying to spend less if possible, but value for money, so for this over £25 guide, I am not going to go crazy here.

Foodie Friday #18: Jamie Oliver Barbecoa at St Paul's, London

November is my birthday month (yay!). If you want to take a look at what I got for my birthday, I have a post about my birthday goodies here , there are more pictures & more birthday goodies on my instagram  as well. And a birthday cannot be complete without a good meal! On a sunday night, Scott took me to Jamie Oliver's Barbecoa - a restaurant that we have been dying to try for ages!! We were just waiting for a good excuse and a good time! The view from our table

Nivea Water Lily & Oil Shower Gel

Weather has turned cold & dry in England. I have been looking for a more moisturising shower gel & stumbled across this Nivea Water Lily & Oil shower gel in Superdrug.

Birthday Goodies 2013

November is my favourite month of the year because the weather gets cooler, I can wear my cozy sweaters & boots & dark nail colours. But more importantly, November is my birthday month! This year, my birthday is kicked off by a packet of goodies  that my sister Cynthy ( @beautyorbread ) sent me from Hong Kong!

Kevyn Aucoin The Iconic Eye Set

During my recent regular weekly visit to Space NK, I found this little Kevyn Aucoin Kit hidden within the Christmas gifting shelves. Why hidden you may ask? The packaging is not particular exciting nor glamourous, the paper sleeve printing is very average. But when I read the content list, it was mind-blowing!

Dior Holiday 2013 Nail Polish : Dorific Vernis No. 993 Minuit

Autumn in England (borderline drop us straight into Winter) has finally upon us. This has definitely put me in the mood of dark nail colours. The latest launch of Dior's Golden Winter (Holiday) Collection 2013 has four nail colours and a bottle of crystal pearls topping. The one I picked up is Dorific Vernis No. 995 Minuit.

Too many people, Too little Palettes: Nars One Night Stand Palette

When I received the dispatched email from Space NK, I was like, "What? Really?? Sure??? Have they got my order mixed up???" At the time when I ordered the Nars One Night Stand palette, the estimated re-stocking time was  1st Dec 2013 . That was why when I got the dispatched email two days later, I couldn't believe my eyes! I felt like I have won the lottery!

Japonesque Cosmetics: New Kid on the Block

I believe people know about the brand Japonesque for their makeup tools - soft brushes, dinky travel brushes set, customisable palettes. But how many of us know Japonesque do cosmetics as well?! They have recently launched their full makeup line exclusively at John Lewis. 

Review & Swatches: Bourjois Colour Edition 24H Cream eyeshadow

Maybelline's Colour Tattoo cream eyeshadows have simply shaken up the beauty world when they came out, and they still remain as one of the favourites amongst bloggers. Bourjois has recently joined the battle and released their own cream eyeshadows - Colour Edition 24Hour Cream Eyeshadow ( Superdrug - £6.99)
