Review: Honey Strawberry Sugar Lip Scrub

Holla dearies!!!!

Just got back from a wonderful Blog Birthday Party hosted by Plusizekitten and TGV Cinemas! :) It was an awesome experience watching Man of Steel in the Beanieplex for the first time, but that's a story that will be told in another longer, more detailed post! Today, I will blog about a gift that we received at the party, a homemade Honey Strawberry Sugar Lip Scrub made by Tammy herself!

I know, it's such a fast post up, but this is really my first lip scrub that I have ever gotten, so don't blame me for being so impatient and excited :p Why are there lip scrubs? Well, because like all parts of our body, our lips have dead skin too, and sometimes when your lips get too dry, they peel of and can look quite unsightly if you're using a matte lipstick. So, as is with regular scrubs, use the lip scrub once or twice a week to get rid of those dead skin cells and your lips will feel baby soft and renewed!

Silviana's farewell

This week, we say goodbye to one of the beacon of light in my office. Esente's dear Silviana has left us to pursue greener pastures in a job more suited for the course that she has taken in University.

It was a night of mixed feelings as we all said our own good bye's to the little cheerful lady who was never without a smile or a kind word. Happy because she will finally spread her wings and fly, but sad because we won't have her around any longer.

Movie Review: Monsters University (2013)

When I was little, I have never been scared that there was a monster under my bed or in the closet, because my closet wasn't a walk in closet, and there's no space under my bed cos there were drawers! *lame moment* but yea, it has been 12 years since Monsters Inc. came out, and now, they have a prequel to it, Monster's University!

Synopsis: Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.

Review: Bag of Love May Edition Best of Beauty

Holla dearies :)

I've just gotten some good news that I've been selected as one of the top ten finalists for the PinkNProper fashion show happening at the Spa Party hosted by the Butterfly Project this 29th June! So I will be sashaying down the walkway at the Spa Party and throw caution to the wind! Time to brush up on my catwalk skills and see if I can lose a little bit of weight before then :p

PinkNProper has recently launched their Spring/ Summer 2013 collection and you can read about it here *click* If you're interested in purchasing some of those clothing items, you can get an exclusive 10% discount on the clothes that you purchase, just by quoting my discount code, "CY007" upon checkout!

But I digress :) This post is actually all about LOVE :) It's the Bag of Love's May Edition Best of Beauty, beauty bag! Don't you just love the look of the bag? It all looks so chic and glamorous!! I love the satiny feel of the bag, and the size is just right enough for me to put all my cosmetics to bring around on my travels :)

Review: Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting in Irish Cream Pavlova

Holla ladies~

How are you guys feeling today? Today I'm going to review one of the many lip glosses I have in my arsenal of lip care :D This is a particular lip gloss that I find quite refreshing, as it has a sweet smell, and works kinda like a lip stain as well, so once you apply it, you don't have to worry about the colour fading away as it stays for about two to three hours.

Today's lip gloss is called a Lip Frosting, by Jelly Pong Pong. I know, it sounds so cute right? I got it from HiShop in the May Beauty Ambassador Pack, and you can read about the other product I got from them here *click*

Review: Mivva June Box Colourific Edition

It was a great start to June for me when I got my June Edition of the Mivva box :) There have been some teasers on their Fb page on what the theme of June would be, and with the brands featured, I was pretty stoked to see what they had in store for us this month. This is my third time receiving their boxes, and I have to say, this is the best one yet. Click the following links if you're wondering what I got for the April and May edition :)

This month's theme was "Colourific", and true to form, everything in the box was definitely colourific! All the items in the box were full sized, and even though there were only four products, I was very excited to try everything out.

Elianto Lumino White New Skincare Range

Holla ladies!

How many of you have always had the dilemma of buying whitening skincare products over moisturising skincare products, or even products that will balance out your skin tone? It's always a chore to pick a particular range of skincare products because the products in the market out there are always catered to only one out of the many different needs of our skin. So we are thrown into a dilemma of choosing one over the other, and of deciding which is the most important for our skin.

 BUT, thanks to Elianto, we do not have to choose any longer! Before I go deeper into this latest range of skincare products that was launched last April from Elianto, I want to say a special thank you to Mivva for inviting me to this Blogger's Gathering featuring Elianto

Systema Toothbrush Bloggers' Day Out

Holla ladies!

Question. If you were stranded on an island and you can only choose between a toothbrush, toothpaste, or mouthwash, which one would you choose? If you choose either the toothpaste or mouthwash, what are you gonna do when it runs out? To maintain good oral hygiene, you definitely need a toothbrush. How else are you gonna get rid of those little pieces of meat and spinach that gets stuck in between your teeth?

Did you know, that in the olden days, Mesopotamians use tooth sticks such as porcupine quills, bird feathers, and wooden thorns to clean their teeth? The Japanese used bone and horsehair to pick the meat out, and the ancient Romans even employed special slaves to help them clean their teeth!

Amber Brown

There's something about the colour brown that always comforts my soul, and puts my mind at ease. I love how brown always makes me feel so close to nature.

Don't you realise that brown is a predominant color on the planet, along with green? Brown is comforting and stabilizing, while green is balancing and rejuvenating, just what we all need to help us deal with the stresses of modern life.
