Pink Blush: I love all kinds of pink blush but I have to say the best is the Benefit Dandelion. Just the right amount of shimmer and the most gorgeous pink colour!
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation: I think Laura Mercier makes the best foundations and powders. I got this one in Medium Ivory and it's just so creamy! I find other types of foundations cake around my nose and lips so I need something creamy that I can just simply rub back into my skin during the day instead of powdering on top which makes it more cakey!
MAKEUP FOR EVER Smoky Lash: I know I have been raving about all types of mascaras lately! But at this moment I am loving this one:) It gives my lashes length and volume and looks so dramatic! I have to buy another!
Not much difference huh? Except that I got a fringe this time and a new colour:)
I am liking the haircut and the new fringe! It's only a slight difference but they got it perfect! Even the hair colour which I have been asking for so many times and none of the salons can do it for me except for this one! I always ask for a reddish brown but they always give me bright red streaks and it makes me look too punky.
Where did I get this hair makeover?
My sister got her haircut there too and she looks mighty different with a blunt fringe and dark brown hair with a hint of burgundy. So I had to try too! The promo they have right now is $150 for Cut, Colour & Blowdry. The whole experience was 100% friendly and they just had the best service!
They gave me a choice of coffee or tea from their own lil kitchen and also a complimentary raspberry tea with head and face massage although it lasted like two minutes! Gave me loads of magazines to read while I wait for my colour. Such a pretty teapot too!
The girl that cut my hair- her name is Jessica, taught me how to use the GHD styler to create curls. I am such a noob at hair so it was kind of her to teach me! I bought a new GHD styler pack and it came with DVD tutorial, bag and a Benefit "Just in Case" mini makeup kit! Anyway, I tried doing my own curling at home using my new GHD on my friend- it's harder than it looks! Jessica made it look so easy! Luckily I got my DVD:)

Welcome to my World of Food!
I don't particularly love cooking unless I feel like it but I will always be in the mood to eat! I must confess that I am a messy eater- it just taste better that way! :P My fiance is the opposite- he is the neat one in this relationship. Just like he likes to fold his tissues and I am a tissue scruncher. Love match made in heaven ya?
What is your favourite food?

A friend recommended this book for me to read and I am glad she did! (Thanks Minh!) I couldn't stop reading. It's about a African girl by the name of Waris who lived her childhood as a nomad but was forced to run away from her only home and the only world she knew and she ended up becoming a famous supermodel joining the likes of Naomi Campbell. It's an amazing story following her life (and it was not an easy life) and she's just an inspiration! It really made me think about how lucky I am and also how much I take a lot of things for granted.
It covers a big issue: female genital mutilation. It is something that is still being performed on women of Africa as part of their religion/culture. It's really sad how they do this to girls when they are so young and without any medical aid.
I highly recommend this book- it's a real eye opener!
