My Favourite Things is a blog link-up by Eireen and Raisa about well, our favourite things. It can be anything — a book, makeup stuff, food, places, gadgets, website, people — and it can be as few or as many as you’d like.

We’re more than halfway through the year already, and I’m just writing my third favourites for this year heh. But I promise, this month’s favourites are so good and interesting enough to make up for my lack of dedication for the other seven months. Let’s jump right into it!

My Favourite Things | July 2016

My Favourite Things is a blog link-up by Eireen and Raisa about well, our favourite things. It can be anything — a book, makeup stuff, food, places, gadgets, website, people — and it can be as few or as many as you’d like.

I know, I know, I know, it took me seven months before I remembered to blog my second of this series! To be honest, I didn’t think I had favourites last month, mainly because I got so busy that I couldn’t pay attention to stuff like these. But then I realized, because I didn’t have much time on my hands, I stuck to the things that I like the best.

Without further ado, here are the things that I July-ke the best (#SryNotSry for the pun).

Two cents is a beauty blog series that doles out initial thoughts on newly-purchased products.

It’s official: I am over my makeup haul-ing phase. I used to go gaga over lipsticks and foundations, but now, whenever I browse through the beauty department online or off, I go straight for skin care. Maybe it’s just this heat or maybe it’s the age — whatever it is, I have started loving pampering my skin!

Two Cents: Althea Korea Mini Haul

Two cents is a beauty blog series that doles out initial thoughts on newly-purchased products.

Yes, dear reader, I am still alive! *Hallelujah chorus* As per usual, I got caught up in major priorities, and forgot to blog again

The past months, I have been on the down low with makeup,  I’ve been sticking to 3 makeup items on most days (Nyx Pore Filler, lipstick on the cheeks, lips, and sometimes eye crease, and made-up brows — if you’re curious), and just relying mainly on layered skin care — sun screen, glow cream, under eye cream. So it’s no wonder that on one of my planned hauls, most of the items are for moi skin.

My Favourite Things | January

My Favourite Things is a blog link-up by Eireen and Raisa about well, our favourite things. It can be anything — a book, makeup stuff, food, places, gadgets, website, people — and it can be as few or as many as you’d like.

Meeehhn, I haven’t done this in ages. I checked, and my last entry for this series was for February of last year! 😮

Well, to be fair, 2015 was a year of extreme experimentation — I kept purchasing stuff and had barely enough time to really try it out and see if I liked it, because surprise — here’s another package for me! I did a little detox towards the end of the past year, had a little Marie Kondo moment, and promised to only keep things that “spark joy”.

So here I am, kicking off the year with a pledge to fully obliterate the hoard monster in me, and to have enough space and time to enjoy the things around me — things that are truly my favourites.

Makeup Stash: KathleenLights x Ofra Miami Fever

Happy new year everybody! *confetti*

I know I’ve been AWOL from this blog for quite some time, but that’s because I’ve bathed into this wonderful thing called ze holidays. If you’re single and already think that the holidays is such a busy time of the year, try being a mom and you’ll find it even crazier! But it’s all fun, our little boy definitely enjoyed the long break wiz mommeh and daddeh.

Err, okay, back to beauty blogging! I’m going to start off this year with one of my favorites from 2015 — Miami Fever. If you don’t know yet, Kathleen Lights collaborated with Ofra Cosmetics and made this go-hor-geous liquid lipstick.
