Complexion: Base: Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24hr (03) mixed with Bourjois Helathy Mix Serum Foundation (51 Light Vanilla) *Apart from being too dark for my skin tone right now, the Lancome Teint Idole foundation is a tad too drying and matte on me. I mixed in one small pump of Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation to three small pumps of Lancome Teint Idole. I usually … Continue reading Makeup Monday: Roses & red lips
Monday is for makeup or skin care related post. However, a girl is sick and bedbound and this is what she already has in her smartphone (blogging from my smartphone is awesome! Thank you, technology!) When it comes to hair, I’m one of those people prefer to keep the routine/hair care to the bare minimum. I wash my hair with a regular scalp-care shampoo (I … Continue reading HASK Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil
** This post, which was originally posted in another blog I previously had, is my take on Berlin during my first visit to the city back in 2013. Part 2 will be about my thoughts on Berlin upon revisiting the city three weeks ago. ** I can’t remember when was the first time I heard about Berlin but I know exactly when I started to … Continue reading Berlin, Berlin! *Part 1*
RL de Young is the baby sister brand of Rival de Loop and are both brands from Rossmann, one of the largest drugstore chains in Germany. Up until a few weeks ago, I was not aware of the existence of these brands because I rarely shop in Rossmann (I’m a DM girl coz they carry NYX!!!). I’m currently in the market for a drugstore highlighter … Continue reading RL de Young Baked Highlighter 01 Moon Dust
Let me start by stating that I did not buy this foundation and this review is based on an experience of trying on this product in a Sephora outlet in Kuala Lumpur early last year. Yesterday, I came across some horrendous pictures of me trying out foundations and wanted to share my thoughts on this particular high-end foundation, which in my opinion, the worst high-end … Continue reading Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate
On Monday, we went to Hanover before leaving to Berlin later that evening. Hubby was there for work, I tagged along and did some quick sight-seeing during the day. Hanover (German: Hannover), the capital city of the state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen) is approximately 3 hours train ride from Heidelberg. The city is probably most well-known for hosting the annual computer and IT trade fair, … Continue reading Day Trip: Hanover
Now that it seems clear that we’re going to settle in Germany for at least the next one year, I’ve decided to add another category called Life in Germany to document or share my experience living here as a non EU-citizen. After some encounters with fellow ‘aliens’ (‘Aliens Office’ or Ausländeramt is responsible for your Residence Permit application), I thought that it would be interesting … Continue reading Day trip: Idar-Oberstein & Flugaustellung P. Junior, Hermeskeil
HBO released the first official photos of the highly anticipated Game of Thrones season 7 in less than 24 hours ago and folks went crazy with some real deep, thorough analysis of each shot! If you’re a GoT fan like yours truly, this fan behaviour won’t surprise you at all. I was barely awake when I saw someone posted this in Facebook and needless to … Continue reading Short N. Ireland trip & Game of Thrones!
Recently I decided that I’d slowly replace the non cruelty-free brands that I use in my daily life to a safer, cruelty-free brands. This is not an easy change because most of my favourite makeup products are from non-cruelty-free companies or belong to parent companies which are not cruelty-free. When it comes to mascara, I already found my HG mascaras from both high-end and drugstore … Continue reading KIKO Cosmetics Extra Sculpt Mascara (Waterproof)
Frohe Ostern! That’s Happy Easter in German 😊 Hubby and I went for a short walk to a local cattle farm called Bierhelderhof. Today was my first time visiting the place. The moment we stepped out of the car, we were welcomed by the overwhelming smell of what I’d described as very similar to a particular Sarawakian delicacy which is fermented fish😨😷😁. Hubby simply said, … Continue reading Easter Saturday.
