Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil, Bioelixia body shaper stretch mark diminishing creme, la clinica belly rub oil


My lifelong dream* to be a Victoria’s Secret model is over!

I have droopy boobs with overstretched nipples and I have stretch marks plastered all over my belly and sides – fantastic reminders that I gave birth to a little rugrat over a year ago!

Anyway, there’s definitely no hope for those gravity-UN-defying boobs but I’ve been testing out a few products for stretch marks so read on for my verdict!

Review : Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes


Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes


Back in the days, amongst my circle of girlfriends, I was known as The Mascara Whore!

I was faithful to none.  I liked clear mascaras, curling mascaras, blackest of black mascaras, lengthening mascaras and some days, I would layer my lashes with 3 different mascaras.

Fast forward a few years and lucky old me ends up in Melbourne.

Melbourne – where the air is so dry that it dries out my eyes and my contact lens wearing day-to-night days are officially over.  And I have to adorn thick geeky glasses again.  And I slowly but surely, forget about mascaras and develop a love for lipsticks…

However, I recently had an eye-opening (pun intended – har-de-har!) experience with Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes.

How to get rid of frizzy hair – bhave smoothe keratin therapy


bhave smoothe, bhave smoothe keratin treatment, bhave smooth, bhave smooth plus,


Some people (i.e. non-Asians) assume that ALL Asians have long thick straight shiny black hair.  IT IS SOOOO NOT TRUE!

Exhibit A – ME!

Me with the hair which has a mind of its own.  Me with the hair which is dry and unruly.  Me with the hair nemesis, HUMIDITY.  Me with the pubic-like frizzy hair.  Come on ladies, you know what I mean!!!

If you’re like me and you’re fed up of straightening your hair every day just to beat the frizzies, allow me to point you in the direction of bhave smoothe keratin therapy.

Merry Christmas To You & Your Loved Ones!

This is the last post from me this year.  I’ll be back in 2015 with new posts and a few exciting giveaways so don’t miss out :)

Due to recent tragic events around the world (Sydney siege and Peshawar attack – I don’t know how to properly articulate my feelings about these heartbreaking tragedies so I won’t) , I’ve decided to take my Christmas beauty blog break early and treasure every possible moment with my family (Mum, Dad and sister) who are visiting from overseas right now.  They came to celebrate Bunty’s first birthday with us!

I want to wish you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Peace out,

Review : Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub


Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub


I liken Lush stores to Marmite (hey, I’m a British ex-pat but for Aussies sake, Vegemite) – you either love it or hate it.  And for the record, I don’t like Marmite nor Vegemite…and I also don’t like Lush stores because of the intoxicating headache-inducing scent you get from just being in a 5km radius of a Lush store.  So why am I reviewing a Lush product today?

Well, many moons ago { over a year actually *gulps* }, I got sent a Lush package…it also had a strong scent…and I avoided opening it for a while.  But when I did, I was pleasantly surprised to find a few products that actually smelt AMAZING and worked a treat.  And here is one of my favourite Lush products – Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub.
