Classic Eye Makeup

Hi =)

So I’ve decided to do a simple eye makeup look.
I want to create different looks with different colors while using the same strategy that I used to create this.

Hope you guys enjoy !

P.S I am thinking purple for the next one.


Revlon & Maybelline

I finally bought myself a lovely shade of coral for my lips. Again, this is not really a haul, just some things that I wanted to try out. My current concealer isn’t that great (it’s the Cover Girl one). So, I decided to try Revlon. I have used Revlon products on a couple of photo-shoots before and the quality was not bad at all. And of course, I loveeeee DollyWink! It gives me great lengths on my eyelashes but sometimes, the volume that I want is not all there. So I purchased the Volum’Express Mascara.

P.s. As I was writing this post, I realized that the mascara I have bought is in “Glam Brown”. Stupid as I am, I will have to go and exchange it for the Black. =(

Ultra Mini Sally Hansen Haul

Hehe, so the Sally Hansen nail polishes that I have ordered finally arrived!

The colors: super cute.

I didn’t have any shade of lilac purple so I ordered one. I thought black and taupe would be great for fall. And of course, the blue and pink was a ‘just because’.

* I’ve titled all pictures (I mean all), so if you ever wonder about a name of a polish, dish, brand, etc; just click on the picture =)

** Sadly, my nails are still short… I’d say a couple more days? My nails should be appropriate by then. Fingers crossed.

29th Ave Cafe

Oh my goodness. The other day, we ventured out to this little restaurant recommended by one of our friends. Was it delish? Yes !

This cute little restaurant (somewhat hidden) had amazing Japanese food. No, I am not talking about “sushi”. I am talking about good ol’ Japanese meals. It was fairly priced but there are a couple of dishes that were a little more expensive. One of them was the Steak with Soy Butter Sauce which went for $20.00. The portions however, was huge! Mmm, the curry sauce was perfect; it was savory with a little bit of sweetness.

I would totally go back there again 😉

Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle

Hi Guys !

This was supposed to be posted somewhere back last year (totally didn’t upload this one). But better late than never right? =)

So there’s this place that I’ve tried that is known for Taiwanese Beef Noodle in Soup. And yup; it is quite delicious.

The only thing is that (which I knew would happen), the noodles are hand-made and therefore thicker in texture (also more filling). I think that the next time I go there, I will try the snacks & appies.

I mean, their marinated beef wrapped in crispy pancake was mm mm good.
This is a link to their website:

Mini Haul

I haven’t really bought anything (personal goodies) for a while, and so I decided to make a little purchase. I went to Shoppers Drug Mart and bought a couple of things.

I really like the Quo Primer (bought it many times before), so I bought it again. I wanted a nice light sunscreen for my face and so I decided to try the La Roche-Posay Face Sunscreen with 60 SPF. So far? the fluid sunscreen is not thick or hard to apply. It actually blends really nicely. (I figured, hey… I should start protecting my skin to prevent dark spots, aging, etc).

Then I headed over to Sephora because I wanted a BB Cream. I know I know, that there are tons of BB creams (in fact, there are CC creams now). I picked up the Diorskin Nude BB Creme in 002. I love it. I mean, I’ve used the Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation before and it was lovely (I am a huge fan of Dior cosmetics). This BB creme is not thick or hard to apply. I find it really hydrating and light. It gives off this nice dewy finish.

And as you know Sephora lovers, you always get a free sample at the end of your purchase. They gave me a sample of the Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser. I know that the Boscia Black Mask works rather well, so I am going to see how great this cleanser is.
