Product Empties March 2017

I love watching ‘Empties videos’ on Youtube, not that I enjoy watching people showing their trash but rather to see what products people love using and their quick reviews on said products. Some product reviews are unnecessarily long and a drag to watch even if I was originally interested in the products mentioned. Product reviews on empties videos are rather short and straightforward which is … Continue reading Product Empties March 2017

Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara (Waterproof)

Fun tidbits: It is unclear where the word ‘mascara’ comes from but it can be assumed that it originates from Spanish word máscara meaning ‘mask’ or ‘stain’ and the Italian word maschera meaning ‘mask’. I know Wikipedia is not the most reliable source, but hey, it kind of makes sense 🙂 I haven’t been very lucky with drugstore mascaras so far. The only drugstore mascara … Continue reading Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara (Waterproof)

Velour Lashes (Whispie Me Away)

I don’t consider false lashes as a makeup staple but it’s one of those things that can really step up your makeup game if done right. I have short, stubbornly straight lashes which is a common issue among us Oriental gals. I used to just rely on very good mascaras, which often are from high-end brands to make my lashes visible. After months of practice, … Continue reading Velour Lashes (Whispie Me Away)

About being homesick and the Oscars 2017.

We rarely go to restaurants here in Dublin but today we decided to try out this little Chinese and Malaysian restaurant called Shangri-La in Stoneybatter. Food was decent and well-priced for Dublin. I’ve been craving for the hot and sour Chinese soup for quite a while, words couldn’t describe how happy I was when I finally get to have it for dinner earlier (as in … Continue reading About being homesick and the Oscars 2017.

Manchester By The Sea (2016)

I finally managed to watch Manchester By The Sea last week after a month of wanting to see it. This movie left quite an emotional impact on me, something that I have already foreseen and the reason why it took me this long to watch it. There’s also something really special about this movie that I couldn’t really put my finger on what exactly that … Continue reading Manchester By The Sea (2016)

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ & Unifiant review

I just realized that I haven’t been posting about skincare as much as I wanted to. It’s not a surprise to me because when it comes to skincare, I’m the kind of person that sticks to the routine and products that work for me. I’d usually try on a product for at least one month before swearing about it to everyone. When it comes to … Continue reading La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ & Unifiant review

Easy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

In a previous blog post, I mentioned about wanting to reduce my meat intake and include more plant-based food in my diet. My sister-in-law, a vegetarian since her teenage years (probably a vegan now), baked a vegan Thanksgiving roast for Christmas dinner and I was impressed at how good it tasted. Since then, I’ve been looking up vegan recipes and wanted to try making them … Continue reading Easy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Recipe
