Weekend Outtakes | Holiday tea, series and a sushi fest!



If your a season reader of my blog, I'm sure you would have seen my previous post about my weekend. If you have not, well here's what i did over the weekend (just a heads up, it involves more food). I'm not really digging the name "Over the weekend" so i have decided to rename it to "Weekend Outtakes". So here's what i've been up to over the past two weeks. 

1. Tea time at Chinoz over the Raya holiday, and boy it was a bad idea to be out and about on a public holiday. 
2. Since having a long weekend, I had the luxury of time to sit down and catch up on my series which I'm way way behind everything. I'm currently watching The OC. 
3. Japanese food is one of my favourite cuisine and definitely would have it anytime. Here's some picture for you to drool over :) 

Have a great day ahead peeps!

Beauty Rediscovered | Etude House Oh m'Eyeliner


I've actually tried this eyeliner before, when i first started getting into makeup. I've cast it aside since finishing and also getting caught up into trying and testing different brands. Only recently I've picked it up again and use it on quite a daily basis, and boy it was such a good idea. I have really forgotten how great this eyeliner was.

Let me tell you, the staying power is awesome! This is first and foremost one important factor that i look into when getting my eyeliner. I do not like the need to reapply or touch up my makeup throughout the day. I just like to put it on and expect it to stay. Etude house definitely did ace in this factor as their formula does not budge, flake or smudge throughout the day... and some say it's even water proof ! The color pigmentation is another plus point as it's the blackest black as a black can be. You don't need to go back over again to get the color out as one swipe across will definitely do it justice. The liquid does not take very long to dry, though you would need to give it about 3 seconds for it to set without accidentally smudging it. Once it's on, it's really ON and will not leave till you clean it off with a makeup remover. It did last me one whole day without any single sign of smudging. 

The applicator is one hell of a great tool. It will definitely pick up enough product for you to draw that perfect wing. It's small enough to help you create a thin line or a thicker line with the right amount of pressure. It's also great for beginners as you can slowly practice drawing your eyeliner with small strokes. 

It's no wonder people rave about their eyeliners and seeing as everyone has one in their shopping basket in Korea it's a green light sign to spend your money on!

Yay or nay for you??

Beauty | Bronzing up with Sleek



I've been meaning to talk more about Sleek's Face Form Contouring Palette since hauling it in my Luxola order. Yeap.. so here i am, after having had some fun with this contouring palette i think it was time to gather my thoughts and pen it down! 

If your looking for a basic contouring palette which is compact enough for traveling or a palette to just pop into your handbag, this palette is right up your alley! Besides the packaging being so compact, the huge mirror that came with it is another plus. 

Other than the sleek packaging that is going on, the star of the palette is definitely the product. It's really pigmented and has a smooth formulae to it. It doesn't chalk up as far as i've used it. So that's a good sign. The colours are really wearable, the bronzer has the right shade to help you bring a lil bit of sunlight. The blusher is a nice pink with a dust of gold in it but not to worry, the gold doesn't show up after you have applied it. My favourite among the three has definitely got to be the highlighter. It has the right amount of shimmer and when applied, it brings the right amount of light to your face. 

Sleek definitely has done it right. I don't have to look far for a contouring palette as i know this palette is just right for me. The price point is also another plus. I bought mine from Luxola for RM53.   I might be eyeing more on Sleek products (wink wink). 

On the side note, I've also manage to give my thoughts on the Zoeva brushes if your interested to know.

What are your thoughts on Sleek face form contour palette?

Most Loved | July non-beauty favourites

Source: http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02705/Reign_2705521b.jpg

This month instead of talking about my beauty favourites, i have here for you some of my current non-beauty favourites. 

#1 - July has been a month of shopping since there's so many on going sale. I've picked up this cute floral top from F block and it's hands down my most loved piece this month. I love pairing this with a white short or blue jeans for a more casual look.

#2 -  I spotted this amazing pair of heels at H&M and my oh my, i can't keep my eyes away from it. It's simple yet helps to bring an outfit a sense of elegance. Definitely a staple pair of heels for any occasions. 

#3 - Reign has really caught my eye! I started watching Reign since they first aired their pilot episode but didn't manage to finish the season. If you haven't heard of Reign before, i urge you to go and watch. It's sort of a cross mixture of Gossip Girl/Game Of Thrones. The costumes are all so stunning and if your into romance this might be up your alley. Each episode has been keeping me wanting more. I'm looking forward for season 2, which will be aired around October. 

What is your current non-beauty favourites?

Over the weekend | Of places and food



Weekends are one thing that i always look forward to. Being able to just sit back relax and enjoy being at home or just having a nice dinner with friends and family. Over the past weekend I've had a nice dinner with some peeps and also manage to cook dinner and had a nice brunch with my mum. 

#1- Dinner at Jibby & Co. My favourite dish there is the clear thai lime flat noodle soup. 
#2 - Cooked up a simple dinner which is salmon marinated in salt, pepper, rosemary and a squeeze of lemon with a side of fresh salad. 
#3 - I recently just found out that Antipodean opened a new outlet at Midvalley, so that's where we had our brunch. 

Just a little insight on my weekend. Since we're having another long weekend, what are you going to do?
