I seem to be an ambassador for The Faceshop already with all the money that I have spent by now, so I might as well just start with what I have gotten from TFS during the recent store-wide 20% discount:
And some random pairs from Sasa:
Finally the famous Ardell lashes in #120:
I should really make an effort to wake up earlier to wear the falsies that I have purchased and feature them in a LOTD. Wish me luck! Night to all....

I can finally round up my first go at Project 10 Pan after months of dragging myself through it.
Last few products that made up this round of project are:

I was at the Ms Amazing Beauty pageant last evening to support my cousin who was a finalist in the competition at DBS Auditorium.

Well, from the title I would think that it's obvious I'm the one who has been lazy and not keeping up my side of the bargain.
I was just doing some spring cleaning of all the photos that I have taken for my blog over the months and I chanced upon this that I took on my makeup haul in HK last year! Haha.
Can you believe that this picture is already about 8 months old and I have still yet to post anything on it??
Actually now looking back at the makeup that I have purchased in HK, I think the only items that I have truly used are only the Lancome lipstick in the fore-ground and the Max Factor mascara which I absolutely adore to death right now. The rest of the products are not getting alot of love from me right now, not because they are not good for me but just because I really do have alot to get round before I can get to them.
Guess keeping a beauty and style blog does have it's own advantages!! I get to be constantly reminded of all the items that I have within my stash and also new ways to use them to keep my makeup current and fresh.
So have you done your own little spring cleaning of your makeup stash?? :o)

I'm someone who change my nail colour pretty often. At the initial phase of the obsession with trying out different colours, my nails got so badly beaten up by the strong chemicals that it started peeling. *Shock Horror!* Since then, a deliberate effort on nail care has been made to ensure that I don't go through the same trauma again.
I'm hoping to keep this entry light and breezy - so I won't be going into details on how each of the product has performed so far but rather a overview on what I have tried and currently using to keep the nails going strong.
First up, the nail and cuticle moisturizing essentials:
TFS Nail Pleasure Nail & Cuticle Oil
TFS Rich Hand Sweet Almond Oil Cuticle & Nail Balm
Gena Cuticle Oil with Grape Seed
Sally Hansen Nail Quencher
Besides using a good moisturizer, it is also equally important that a good base coat is being used. A good base coat would prevent staining of the nails when using dark colours and it also works as a barrier between your nails and the strong chemicals used in the nail polish, especially in some of the lower quality ones. So if you have to splurge, this would be the item to spend on!! :o)
OPI Start to Finish Base and Top Coat, Sally Hansen Complete Care Extra Moisturizing 4-in-1 Treatment
I have been discovering alot of hidden gems within my current stash and I think I should do a post soon on all my re-discovered loves. But in the meantime, sleep tight everyone. Thanks for reading. :o)

I bought more from their FACE&it collection and this time it's the pastel shades from their range. Upon second look, this range really does seem to offer some gorgeous shades. And last I checked, I really do not have such peachy coral shades within my collection for some reason..... So at SGD7.90 before the 20%+10% discount, I decided to just got for it!! :o)
And last but not least, the Glamax mascara in Dazzling Pearl:
I love how the glitter mascara lights up the whole eye and makes it seem like there's little tiny drops of water crystals on the lashes and so I splashed out on the glitter mascara from TFS! I have not gotten round to wearing this on my lashes so I'm not sure whether the same effect could be achieved with this mascara but I'm sure going to find out. Watch this space for some reports on how the latest hauls have been performing. :o)
