My Current Makeup Removers

Processed with VSCOcam with s1 preset

As much as I love putting on makeup, I make it a point to remove all my makeup before I go to bed.  I know a day can get very tiresome and it’s very tempting to just plop to the bed and sleep. But your skin needs to breathe, people. You need to remove all the things that you piled on your face. Continue reading My Current Makeup Removers

Morning and Evening Skincare Routine

I started using any type of skincare item when I was 23 and it was only because I liked the smell of my cousin’s moisturizer. My very first moisturizer was from Origins: A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturizer with White Tea. I swear it smells so good. For the next 4-5 years, I used this as my night time moisturizer. I didn’t use any during day time because this was too emollient and I don’t want extra moisture on my already oily skin.

REVIEW: Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Fiji

Today I bring to you my thoughts on one of the much raved foundations by bloggers and Youtube vloggers alike: Nars Sheer Glow Foundation.

I bought this foundation at Bangkok airport last year and I was matched to the shade Fiji by the SA at the NARS counter. I think it cost me around 1750 BAHT.

It looked nice when first applied but at the end of the day, it looked patchy on my skin. FYI –  I have oily combination skin, I am oily on my t-zone and a little bit on the chin and the rest is normal.  Continue reading REVIEW: Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Fiji

Baking Lemon Drizzle Cake

When we moved to the new house 3 years ago, my only request to my parents was to have a space in the kitchen for an oven.  I didn’t mind paying for the oven because I know that I will be able to do more recipes that required baking. I already tried baking savory meals since then but I have not tried baking breads or pastries.

A few weeks ago, I watched Anna‘s video wherein she baked a Lemon Drizzle Cake. Lily Pebbles was raving about the cake so I was tempted to make it. I don’t like sweets very much but since this involved lemons, I know it won’t be overly sweet. I thought the ingredients were fairly easy to find locally and it was not that hard to make. I didn’t have a mixer but Chard said I could do it by hand.
