New In: Cosmetics

I've been eyeing on a cream blush for quite some time and it happened - I got hold of Topshop one. Bright pink in 'Aftenoon tea' shade, £7. I'm really happy with this one as all my expectation are met. Easy and quick to use, mirror inside, solid plastic, vivid colour, reasonably cheap, and and and the package is really cool. Should I ask for more?

This cream blush is so easy to apply with a brush. Great girly pink is just what I need. It gives you a doll-like look unlike peachy shades which make you look fresh and natural. But right now I want it to be a bit theatrical (it's probably my suppressed needs which my alter ego want to hide, hehe).

I also bought these lip glosses/lip lacquers from Rimmel; the red shade is from Russia, other two are from Superdrug on special offer 2 for £9.


My favourite red that I've been searching for and finally found. A very good juicy sexy red. Glad Rimmel made it.


To be honest, this fuchsia pink looks very similar to bright red 'Big Bang' above. But still you can see a hint being a tad bit pinker. This is most probably the camera rendering colours this way.


A voluptuous colour of red wine. I've been looking for something burgundy but yet again it's not the perfect burgundy I wanted. Still a good pick, to my mind.

And a whole look.

Late Birthday Post

Although my birthday was two weeks ago, I'd like to share with you what I was wearing. We just had a simple dinner at Wagamama and I ordered some hot green salad with 'bok choi' (which, I googled just now, turned out to be Chinese cabbage) and I didn't quite like it. The girl that was attending to us was like 'Did you like it?' and then I was like 'Ermmm, well... not really, but this is really good' (pointing at the other dish). And after a couple minutes she came up to us again telling 'We can take it off your bill then'. I hadn't feel so ashamed since my school years, I think... But that was good anyway - saving some money, yay?

Spring Has Arrived


Another attempt to give this blog a go. There's always something that gets in the way, be it a disease, lack of energy, laziness, boring life or whatever comes to your mind, so many excuses. It's so hard to start doing something again after such a long break.

I still get occasional breakouts of rash but I try to nip them in the bud. You can't also eat anything bright-coloured, spicy, unusual. It's like being anorexic always secretly calculating calories in the back of your mind whatever you see, the same here - you always assess possible risks of consuming a certain product.

But enough of it. I and my husband had an amazing Sunday last week. I was dressed do girlish, you can see it below.

As you can see spring is at its full power. Yahoo!

Then we heeded off to Central London... where we climbed the Monument to the Great Fire in 1666 because we were completely out of ideas what other tourists' attractions to visit because we had visited pretty much all of them. Apparently. Well, I mean those free or reasonably cheap. You can try to find another pair that wants everything under 20 pounds! Thank God we don't reuse paper towels like some people (google extreme cheapskates tv show, lol).

As we looked at the other cyclists we came to realise we wanted to place our bums on the seats too, not to mention the fact that I hadn't ridden a bike in 10 years or so! The result of hiring two bicycles wasn't that bad actually. Plus my darling took these amazing pics.

Guys, stay healthy, don't ruin your life. Pulling yourself together is not fun when you have to do it everyday And well, brands that I'm wearing...
