Hey Everyone,

ok

Let’s be honest, I’ve gained a lot of weight coming back from Uni. I was flipping through some pictures today and I was totally really honestly quite taken a back at myself. It wasn’t that I was self critical of myself but more that I was confused. Not at how I got there – honestly speaking, I totally deserve every single pound due to my naughty eating habits and well l blame it on work. Everyone does right? I am totally at blame for my poundage. I totally accept that I’ve gotten fatter and it has gotten to a point where people can tell me as many times as they want “You’re fat” and my reply is simply “Yes I am fat.”

It’s been a while since I updated you on what’s going on! Sure I can put out a bunch of reviews and how to’s but I don’t mind telling you a little more about what I do when I’m not blogging away so here we go! A few weekends ago when I came back from Japan, Jacob and I decided to have brunch before Church. I haven’t been to Tiong Bahru for a while and Jacob wanted to eat at one of the many cafes there as well. After parking, we stumbled upon the actual Tiong Bahru Plain Vanilla Bakery! It was totally a surprise because the bakery was absolutely beautiful.

Today, I just wanted to tell you about a really cool app I’ve been using lately and loving called SGMalls! I have to admit sometimes in Singapore, we feel like we have nothing to do on the weekends. That usually equates to us going to our local mall and seeing what’s up and especially, what’s on sale! Well SGMalls actually tells you all the sales currently in all the malls in Singapore before you drive over there, plus there are loads of other cool features that I will be showing you in this post. Be warned, this app is totally fitting if you are a shop-a-holic. It’s totally FREE and available on iPhone and Android. Just download it now and I’ll walk you through it.

It’s International Women’s Day on March 15 this year and I have an exciting event to announce if you’re interested in celebrating this special occasion with empowering and inspiring women! If you don’t know about Young Women Leadership Connection (YWLC), it’s an engagement platform here in Singapore that is so special because it serves as a mentorship, enrichment, networking and community engagement platform for young women leaders at the university-to-work stage of their lives. This is something I really feel passionate about and I find it amazing that there’s an event for this now! By the way before I get started, YWLC is also having a Story Sharing Contest – where you can win Love Bonito Vouchers! Here’s more info:

Hey Everyone,

hihi

I’ve wanted things just like everyone else and I’ve tricked myself into thinking I wouldn’t be happy without it. Maybe it’s that $4,000 bag your friend is sporting, or that trip to the Bahamas or maybe it’s just as simple as getting a job promotion.

Something that I’ve totally learnt growing up is that our wants change over time. Something that we totally want right now may not mean much four years down the line. Things that we thought we needed weren’t actually that important. However an even bigger realisation is that maybe it’s just not our time yet to have whatever it is that we want but we can’t have yet. We may want these things so badly, but maybe we need to wait for God to give it to us instead of scrambling to do whatever we can in our human means.

Hello from Taiwan! So here I am in my hotel room on New Years Eve celebrating the last few hours of 2013 in my…pajamas. I’m really not complaining though, there’s really nothing better than a soft hotel bed and I guess it’s how I want to celebrate the end of 2013. I’d have to say at the end of it all, 2013 was a really tough year for me but it was also a year in which I got to experience things that were beyond what I thought would be possible for me. A lot of the year I spent working and at the end of it all, I feel like I finished some final year project I’ve been preparing all year for. I’m happy I’m done with this year and I really can’t wait to see what 2014 has to offer.

I don’t know about you but when I’m stressed out, I always look at pictures of a tropical paradise and they never fail to cheer me up. I even had one as a desktop background for a while. The white sand, the crystal clear water, the true blue sky and well, all it’s missing is..well, me. But just a week ago, I finally got a chance to turn my desktop background into reality when I went on a trip to Boracay with the Gushcloud team! I’ve always imagined Boracay to be some distant island and to be honest, I didn’t even know it was in the Philippines! Super geography noob right here. It was really a wonderful, unique and special trip. I thought I might sum it up into a handy guide for you if ever you’re keen so here’s 7 must do and amazing things to do in Boracay!

I just wanted to let you know that I’m heading to Boracay tomorrow morning for a couple of days! I can’t believe it. My screensaver tropical island paradise is finally turning into reality. It’ll be my very first time I’m setting foot in the Philippines and I’m so excited. I’m always a late packer. I don’t really like packing actually because you never know if you’re going to miss out something you need so I always end up bringing extra. I tend to procrastinate too, so much so that I decided to do this little blog post before leaving on my beach make-up essentials to pack! FYI Boracay looks a little something like this (this potentially might make you a wee bit jelly):

It’s always fun to see your videos grow from at home to being done professionally! So when Clozette contacted me to see if I wanted to make a few videos that represented me and be featured as an SK-II Blogger Ambassador, I was more than thrilled! I managed to film three videos with them:

(1)   Celebrity Inspired Look: Scarlett Johansson
(2)  Neckline Cheat Sheet: Best Accessories To Match Different Necklines
(3)  Bride-To-Be Special: Skincare, Hair & Makeup!

2

It was really fun to film these videos not only because the camera crew totally beat my at home set-up, but because I really do believe in SK-II products. I often get asked how I make my skin glow like it does and to be honest, it’s totally SK-II so I was very pleased to be one of their blogger ambassadors on Clozette. Today I thought I might show you the three videos and some behind the scenes shots! Hope you enjoy! the videos, they are very useful for the holidays coming up!

I know it sounds crazy. How can you ever really get excited for the hard times in your life? What on earth would you get excited for. I know it sounds ridiculous but really – from the bottom of my heart – get..excited..for the..hard times. Throw a freakin’ party.

To be honest, probably the hardest point in my life was when I was just about to graduate high school. It was my senior year and when a lot of people were getting excited for college and preparing to jet set to another country – I was pretty down in the dumps. I just broke up with my first boyfriend, I had to leave leadership of my club that I spent three years growing and what I called mah baby, and to be honest, I didn’t really have that many friends. Yeah, you could probably say I would cry in the bathroom to get my act together and yeah, I was there. And the most amazing thing is that at that point in my life, I could choose whether to mope around and cry all day or pick myself back up and refuse to listen to those voices in my head saying I was worthless. I refused every single one and I got the chance to turn my life around. It was right there at my lowest valley that I picked up make-up. That’s the moment where I turned my life around and that’s exactly why you should get excited for the hard times.

Symmetry is just about the only decent brunch I’ve had in Singapore so far. In fact, it’s a little more than decent, it’s really good guys. I might sound like I’m some pompous food critic but when you’ve lived in land of brunch called Melbourne in Australia for a few years, you’re basically set to accept that it’ll be hard to find a place where coffee isn’t just coffee and eggs aren’t just eggs. If that makes sense at all. After having visited Symmetry a few times, I thought I’d show you around one of my favourite places to have brunch in Singapore.

I can’t say I don’t have a massive perfume collection, I do. Almost every semester brought me to this one perfume store in Melbourne Central during every exam season and buying a perfume because a stress releaser for me. I guess you could say it wasn’t too healthy for the wallet but I just love smelling good. I think every woman should and the beauty of it is that smell is so personal – not only in scent but also the memories that each perfume carries. Out of my entire collection – you could say three stand out the most. Whenever I open any of these perfumes I’ve chosen today, it brings back a wave of memories. It’s like opening this huge time capsule. I thought it would be fun to show you some of the memories they bring back too.

Yesterday marked a really special occasion – I bought my first luxury bag. I know, I still can’t believe it. I earned every single dollar that went into it and I feel really proud that I was able to do that. All the late nights working, working on the weekends and even working while I was at University  - doing makeup, running the store and running this blog has been an interesting experience. I love how my job is really varied, but it can get really hectic sometimes with things due from three angles. Ladies and any guy who reads this blog, I introduce to you my new Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 in Monogram print! It’s specifically momentous because I’ve been wanting, waiting and looking at the speedy 30 ever since high school and I really can’t believe that it’s finally sitting on my bed. I earned it. It’s like, wow…I did that.

Wow, where do I even begin with this trip. When I was 18 doing YouTube videos with an awful camera stacked on a bunch of books, I had no idea that one day someone was going to fly me to Bangkok on an all expense paid trip to try out the country’s best spas. But, God proved me wrong.THANK YOU GOD for this amazing opportunity to go to Bangkok. I mean, seriously, me? Wow. Just wow. A few weeks before the trip, the Thai Embassy called me up to ask if I’d like to be flown to Bangkok for their Find your Fabulous Media Trip to try out the best centres offering beauty treatments in Thailand. Um, yeah I do! I packed up my bags and got on my Thai Airways flight in the wee hours of the early mornin’ to make my way there! Here’s my review of all the places I went to to give you ideas for your next trip to Bangkok!

I guess since High School, I’ve always been asked how I sleep at night or how I get everything that I do done while still being able to balance a decent social life. I’m not too proud that sometimes I can become a work-a-holic (with the blog, doing make-up professionally and the store) just like anyone but here’s a few tips that will really change your life when it comes to having a lot on your plate. I’ve learned this since my Uni days and they are essential “life skills” to winning at life.

1. You can’t have enough LISTS

Seriously, you can’t. There are lists for everything. I like to go old school with a pen and my notebook. In fact my notebook is full of my to do lists. Everyday I make it a point to have a to do list and I will write my to do list the night before. I put my notebook open to my list down on my desk right in front of my computer so I know what I need to get started on immediately when I start the day. I don’t know about you but I get a pleasant satisfaction after I cross out each one. Making a to do list is super important so you don’t waste time and you know what you have to do. It makes you tons more efficient and you’ll find out that you can do so much more. Don’t be afraid if you can’t cross everything out on your list, just log it back in for the next day. If you’re a super weirdo like I am, I like to put even more than I can handle on my list sometimes just so I can get the most out of my day.

It’s kind of surreal, this whole thing. Being chosen as a make-up artist by SK-II, getting to share my own make-up tips and beauty secrets and even speaking at an event. And to be honest, I actually love public speaking. I don’t normally get the jitters and I find it really fun to be talking to a large group of people (granted I know what I’m saying). It was really cool to be SK-II’s make-up artist to reach out to all the brides at their recent SK-II Bridal Shower. They asked me to share my make-up tips as a professional make-up artist and my experiences dealing with brides before their big day. It was an amazing and successful event and all of us walked away with new tips and new knowledge and I’m happy to be sharing all of them with you right on here, especially if you’re just about to tie the knot!

We all know that being a bride to be can be stressful. You’ve got to plan everything – down to what color all the flowers are gonna be, what your dress will be like, not to mention your wedding cake and even down to the chairs and tables. I’m not getting married yet but I can imagine what it would be like and to be honest, I’m not sure if I can stop myself into turning into a classic bridezilla! I’ve been working on an exciting project with SK-II to reach out to brides all over Singapore. Part of the project is this video that we made, check it out here!

Ever so often, I like to update you on life, what goes on behind the scenes. – you know that stuff. June has been a pretty crazy month and so has the past few months ever since I came back from London. I launched the online store, I’ve been working on the blog part time and I’ve been a full time, professional and certified make-up artist. I juggle this between filming for Mediacorp ToggleTV (I have my own series called Beauty Basics now), voice-overs and speaking and hosting events too. I guess that’s what I do, although sometimes I feel like a third culture kid trying to explain it. Despite the compulsory confusion when asked, I feel like I’m doing what I need to do at this point in my life. I’m only 22 and it’s like I’m using every part of me, everything that God made and blessed me with and I feel like He’s my boss. BTW, I’m scattering my make-up work throughout this post, whether you like it or not.

Hey everyone,

eagle

An eagle is an incredible animal. I never knew until a conversation struck a few months ago over dinner. No animal is braver than an eagle. As the years go by, an eagle’s feathers become weighted down with oil and dirt, which hinders their ability to fly and hunt effectively. Their beak becomes encrusted with calcium which makes their beak less sharp and able. To soar and fly higher up the mountains, an eagle has to break it’s beak and tear out its feathers so that there is a renewal and growth. The craziest thing is that it is totally open to doing this incredibly painful process.  It breaks it’s beak by knocking it against a rock and plucks it’s feathers out one by one. When everything grows back slowly, it is able to soar higher than before. How beautifully brave.

I’m feeling a little nostalgic tonight. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m lying here looking at old photos on facebook or that I don’t want to finish up my work. I don’t want to be a crying baby, but I miss Melbourne. I miss going to college. I remember at that time I never really understood why  “grown-ups” always told me to really cherish university life. I mean look at all the deadlines, assignments and projects right? Seriously though, really enjoy it because I’m telling you now you’re going to miss it when it’s gone.

I still dearly miss the coffee and cafe culture from my college days in Melbourne. I miss eating at Twenty & Six Expresso, getting a perfect cup of coffee almost anywhere I go and chilling with my friends at another new haunt. If only I could go back, but life isn’t about that. It’s always about going forward and I guess I’ll have to try and make do with what’s in Singapore at the moment. I guess growing up I never really took to believing that Singapore could have the same oomph that Melbourne has in terms of food and cafe culture. I’ve always associated it with the kopitiam rich dark and black coffee, toast and half boiled eggs as the standard breakfast fare. Lunch includes something along the lines of chap fan or a plate of beehoon. But now, there are so many cafes just sprouting out well, everywhere. I could say I love food as much as make-up, nails and hair.

We might have the moisturiser of the season, the blush of the century, but what about our toothpaste? After all, a smile is just as important as a clear complexion or a rockin’ lipstick! I’ve been using Darlie Expert White toothpaste for a while now, and I’m in love with the stuff. I first got it in one of the sample boxes, Black Box, and have been using it ever since. When Elle Magazine invited me to their Girl’s Day Out with Darlie, I couldn’t wait. The event was not just about perfect pearly whites but about all the other aspects that help us look great too – like your make-up, your diet and also how you look in photos! Thought it would be great to share with you what I learnt!

I can’t believe it’s the last day of our Disneyland adventure. It has been such an inspiring and fun trip to Hong Kong and such a break from the city. From having breakfast with Mickey to going vertical on RC Racer, it was such a dream vacation. But, let’s finish off with a bang shall we? Of course, it’s breakfast time! This time, it was at our Hollywood Hotel at Chef Mickey!

Chef Mickey is a restaurant with an international buffet! You’re for sure talking an international cuisine with food from Japan, USA, and of course local delights again like Dim Sum and noodles. It’s a really nice spread of food. Apparently Mickey is supposed to come out and surprise us in his chef costume but I guess he slept in today!

It’s Day 2 of our Disneyland Adventure! We first started off with a charming breakfast at the Enchanted Garden. The Enchanted Garden is a restaurant at the Disneyland Hotel and the buffet breakfast every morning is special in that Mickey and his friends will visit your table so that you can take pictures with them! It’s definitely a fun experience but make sure you know what timing session you are. They allow customers in by sessions according to the time each morning.

Isn’t it such a pretty place? I was also actually impressed with the food as well. I wasn’t expecting such a huge spread with so many different cuisines!

Disney has played a huge part of our lives when we were little. When I was 5 years old, all I wanted to be was Esmiralda from Disney’s Hunchback of Notredame and the year after, Belle from Sleeping Beauty. My favourite story book was Cinderella and I still have the torn up book I used to read time and time again. I might not be into Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj, but I love Disney and it’s a probably a love that will never fade.

72

I’ve always seen Disneyland as a huge escape from reality. It’s the best park to get lost in the magic of Disney – the sounds, smells, people and characters. I’ve been to all the parks around the world except the one in Paris (simply because I haven’t been to Paris yet) and I’m in love with all of them! With Jacob and I working pretty hard lately, we thought we would share with you our Hong Kong Disneyland adventure! We went for three days in total and to attend the Media launch of the new Hong Kong Disneyland expansion called Mystic Point. I’ve been to Hong Kong Disneyland previously when it first opened and it only had 3 areas so I felt it was quite small. However, that was five years ago and now they are double its size!

I don’t even remember when was the last time I did one of these Q&A quizzes. But for a little bit of nostalgia, I thought why not? Thanks to the lovely Min Ru for tagging me for the Beauty Blogger Tag! There are actually 32 questions, but I chose 18 because the rest were a bit redundant to be honest. Let’s get started ;)

1. Do you wear the same style everyday or do you change it?

Yep, I’m one of those ultra classic ladies and if you’re talking about my daily make-up, then the only time I change it up is when I can’t find my make-up palette I usually use and end up using another one. Then I’m stuck on there for about 2 weeks before maybe thinking of changing it up again.

As much as I love make-up, you could ask anyone, sometimes I wonder if I like food a little more. My guilty pleasure isn’t spending a bomb on clothes (although I can’t say much about make-up) but it is eating out. And today I can’t wait to share with you something that I’ve been visiting almost every week and that’s a quaint restaurant on Purvis St. called Saveur. It’s not like this place needs any more attention than it already has being featured in countless magazines and newspapers, but hey, I’m here to say that all of that is true. It’s that good and girl, you need to go!

I know I don’t write about my personal life much but today I’m being good to myself and taking the day off and I though I’d update you on life! (and what better way than through instagram).

hi1

The boy is now a pastry chef at Saveur which is a really great affordable french place on 5 Purvis St. I’m always bringing people there not because I’m an awesome girlfriend (hehe) but because their food is amazing – especially  their duck and desserts – not to mention their salmon confit. I’m really proud of him for pursuing his dreams to be a chef and despite the long working hours, our day offs pretty much make up for it. I’m actually pretty big on food and want to find Melbourne – like brunch spots. We gave the Orange Thimble in Tiong Bahru (supposedly the hipster place of Singapore nowadays) a try but was a bit dissapointed. Their food was good, but it was just sandwiches and expensive juice. Our trip to Kki near Chinatown didn’t disappoint though. The cakes there are japanese inspired cakes – think japanese soft type cheesecakes and desserts – absolutely delicious but they kind of cost a bomb. A worthy trip if you’re looking to splurge a little.

I can’t believe the launch of my online store will be at the end of this month. In fact, the store was just a thought only about a year ago when I was studying for my exams and now it’s become a reality. Many inventory packing, supplier checks and meetings with my web developer later and not to mention contacting charities, I’m just about ready to take this bun out of the oven and oh am I excited! To celebrate, here’s a sneak preview of some of the pieces at the store. Mainly there will be necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings – sourced all over the globe but mainly the states and Korea and all picked by yours truly. It’s I guess also an expression of my own style.

Hey Everyone,

I can’t believe it’s over in two weeks. I still remember packing my bags (albeit very last minute), hopping on a plane and getting on the tube to my very first day of school. And now, it’s already week 7! Finally attending make-up school was a big dream of mine. Even though to be honest most of my friends and family questioned what more I could learn there, I learned an immense amount. It wasn’t so much about theory, but the experience of applying make-up on people day in day out and being professional about it is what helped! In fact, applying make-up on someone else is totally different than applying make-up on yourself, plus you learn the real professional way of doing things and you get told off by someone who’s been doing it for 20 years. Here are my top lessons, tips and tricks (whatever you want to call them) from school that I never knew how to do before. Plus, I’ve sprinkled images of some of my work throughout the post as well!

Hey Everyone,

I admit, I watch my own videos. And although somewhat narcissistic that may sound, I guess my only explanation is that I only make videos that I like and to be totally honest with you, it’s so funny to see yourself three years ago as compared to now. So I thought it would be fun to show you a little timeline of my first video to what I’ve become (dundundun) so you can have a few laughs.

April 2009, My very first video on YouTube! Forgive me for my lack of lighting skills. I propped my really bad digital camera on a tissue box and a couple of text books to film this after I got home.

Hope the Monday blues didn’t get to you today, but if they did, here’s a cupcake and a mighty good one at that. Chancing upon The Hummingbird Bakery in London was by no surprise a mistake. My parents being fans of antiques led the way to Portobello Market at Notting Hill in London, a great place for trinkets and basically people’s old stuff. I’m not a fan of either and was a bit bored until the next thing I know, I was standing in front of The Hummingbird Bakery.

I went pretty starstruck since my sister has the books and has made delicious and I MEAN delicious creations from it and my wonderful boyfriend said that his ridiculously yummy red velvet cupcakes was based off a recipie from The Hummingbird Bakery. So I was pretty much in line to get a cupcake by the end of that sentence.

It’s been barely a week and I’m already in love with this place. I wouldn’t be surprised if I started having a British accent. Just kiddng. In fact, the stereotype British weather and British food is nothing to be worried about. Admist the double decker buses and the London cabs, I think the best thing I love about this place by far ought to be the architecture. It seems as if everywhere you turn and look, there is a fabulous looking building and you can just imagine a horse drawn carriage passing by. Here’s a sneak peek of what I’ve been up to, but if you want a live feed, be sure to follow me on instagram @roseannetangrs ;)

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to update you on life and give you a few snapshots from the week. It has definetly been an adventure coming back home.

Apologies for the delay in posting this. I’ve been rushing around like a crazy monkey for the past few days and now I’m back in the +65, Singapore, and well the sweltering heat. I forgot how humid Singapore is and hot and I’m sure it will take some getting used to. To be honest, I’m in a little bit of a denial about graduating even if it’s pretty much a significant bookmark to the next chapter of my life. Although I have to admit, University wasn’t too much fun in the beginning, I couldn’t have asked for better friends and an experience that was definitely unforgettable.

Hey Everyone!

Since I’m leaving Melbourne for good after finishing my university degree, I thought it was only of manners to throw a farewell party! Last week, I selected 20 gorgeous subscribers from a Meet-Up Contest and invited my blogger and youtube buddies I’ve made over these three years to come to my first ever meet-up! It was held last Saturday at Koko Black, a chocolate patisserie and boutique and I managed to get the whole top floor of a victorian house. It was a stunning setting with teak and oak decor not to mention yummy chocolate treats!

Mizspa.com also volunteered to sponsor the goodie bags for the event that matched beautifully with the pink roses on each table of four. Guests could laze around on the leather sofas or grab a seat. It was definitely and intimate setting for the 30 of us. I was totally nervous to be honest and have been planning for the day for weeks. I needed to find a good venue, a menu, and think about decorations and goodie bags.  I’m really happy with the setting though, it’s classy and chic. The party was set for 11:30 AM and I had only half an hour to decorate the place with my friend and boyfriend but we pulled through! You know that I’ve been working on my online jewelry boutique and store so I grabbed a few pieces from the whole collection and scattered them around so guests could check them out as they mingled :)

Flying back and forth from Singapore to Melbourne has always been a part of my life, but this time when I fly back in August, I won’t be coming back to Australia. I came to Melbourne to get on with a commerce degree and I got my results back recently and I’ve graduated! Woot! I am done with three years of Uni and now it’s time for my dreams but sadly, those dreams await me back in Singapore and so does my family so I gotta go. I’ll miss so much of Melbourne including the make-up obviously, coffee, dear friends, the ridiculously delicious food, and all my Australian subscribers except that we aren’t really parting since you can still see me online as you’ve always done. Before I start tearing up, I thought that leaving the country unannounced was a bit rude so instead I decided to take a leap and do a meet-up with all my Melbourne readers and subscribers! Truth be told, you’ve seen me on the streets, at traffic lights, on the tram, at the gym changing, at Big W and even at Sofia’s. Now, I’d like to invite you all to my own special gathering at Koko Black in the city so that we can stir up a chat proper and not to mention have a great time! I have 20 exclusive invitations to my meet-up right here!

Hey Everyone!

Every now and then, I like to spice things up with a post that’s unrelated to make-up. I’ve been eating a lot. I think if you follow me on instagram, you’d take that as an understatement but in a place like Melbourne, eating is essential to a Melburnian. I have to say if it’s any meal of the day that is uniquely Melbourne-like, it has to be brunch – the in between of breakfast and lunch – the meal of conversation on an early morning when the sun is glistening and next to you is parked some jogger drinking a cup of jo with his golden retriever. It’s a golden meal, so here are my top 3 places to have Brunch in Melbourne if you ever visit, and places I will surely miss when I’m back in Singapore for good in August (you heard me right…*sadface*).

Hey Everyone,

One of the greatest perks about being a blogger is making new friends who share the same interests and hobbies as you do.  From talking on twitter, to meeting up randomly to blogger events, I’ve made some awesome friends through blogging. I thought I’d take you for a spin during one of your dinner dates at Wild Honey, a great place for brunch like food if you’re ever in Singapore and if indeed you need a Melbourne fix.

Let me introduce you to the lovely babes! On the far left is Sara Kye (http://www.icyabstract.onsugar.com) who is one of the first Singapore YouTube Beauty gurus that I watched. I remember watching her Brush set review that I really wanted to buy from a blogshop (myclassycloset) and it’s pretty cool to think how far everyone has come since those days. She’s an absolutely lovely and beautiful girl! In the middle is Sarah Chaudry (http://www.facesbysarah.com) who is a Celeb Make-Up Artist here in Singapore. She is ridiculously talented with make-up. Check her YouTube Channel out at (http://www.youtube.com/facesbysarah).

Hey Everyone!

I’ve always been a nervous wreck when it comes to buying a bra. I’m pretty shy so harboring enough courage to ask a sales assistant to come measure me is a challenge in itself. I mean lingerie and bras have always been a tricky issue, especially if you’ve just started wearing one and even if you’re well into the bra wearing age, you might not even be wearing the right one for you. The right bra should feel really comfortable, support your assets well, and give you that desired lift. Wearing the wrong bra can give you an undesired figure (we never want bra fat right?) and can cause a bit of ache if your assets aren’t supported correctly. So let’s tuck the blushing cheeks and shy feelings away and talk about how you can find the perfect bra for you.

Happy New Year!

2011 was a fast year for me and as much a rollercoaster as I could have ever imagined. For the blog, I was featured as the number one review blog internationally by everydaysale.co.uk, featured in Urban and The Straits Times as well as LianHe Wanbao. I finally launched roseannetangrs.com and now the YouTube channel has reached over 10,000 subscribers. I’ve been contacted by Illamsqua, Urban Decay, Clinique, Fancl, Benefit among others. It has been utterly incredible and not to mention amazing. To think all of this started from a simple thought to film a video one night. To all of you and to all I’ve worked with, thank you for your support thus far.

Hey Everyone!

Clean white lab coats, older sales assistants, skin care, and clinical proof – that’s what I think of when I think Clinique. It’s not uncommon either. Their super sleek counters at the department store are famous for providing hope to the less lucky skinned people, like me. To be honest, Clinique hasn’t been on the top of my to buy list not because I think their products are lacking, no not at all, it just isn’t the first counter I visit. But that doesn’t mean I’m not interested in finding out more about it. Clinique gave me the perfect opportunity to do just that last week when they invited me to preview the launch of their new Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector. The product has been a stellar star in Australia and the United States already but has yet to make it’s debut in Singapore.

Hey Everyone,

I’ve never really been a branded person when it comes to getting clothes. That being said whether my top is from Calvin Klein or from the 5 dollar shop down the street really doesn’t matter on me. I believe in style for a bargain and you’re probably not going to see me in a boutique whipping any more than fifty bucks for something. Believe it or not, Singapore is great for this and I thought it’d be cool to show you a place where I find myself shopping in Singapore again and again! Let me introduce to you Far East Plaza! This will probably be useful if you’re thinking of coming down anytime soon to look for clothes at a pretty good price.

Hey Everyone!

   

Happy Saturday! My forgetful memory and I forgot to wish you Happy Thanksgiving! I reckon you’re probably stuffed right now of delicious turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie and I am also so very jealous that I decided to push even more food to you in the form of a lifestyle post! Today I’m taking you down Hardware Lane with Ilyana to a small quaint french looking patisserie selling what I think are the best macarons in Melbourne.

The name La Belle Miette is actually french for “beautiful small thing” or “beautiful crumb” which is fitting because it sells primarily macarons. In fact, these are I think the only delectable bites that they offer. The small patisserie was founded by a couple, Maylynn and Hugh. Maylynn and Hugh are both passionate bakers and dessert enthusiasts who studied professional patesserie in Paris so no wonder their macarons are amazing.

Hey Everyone,

I know, I know, I’m sprouting new segments on this blog like grass on a new batch of fertilizer. Apologies if necessary. So what exactly is Tangspiration? Unfortunately, it can’t be found on Urban Dictionary (yet) and admittedly, it’s a term that I made-up only a few seconds ago. It means inspiration from my heart, cliche as that my sound. This place afterall is about empowering the everyday woman and I have to say although I’m 20, I’ve been through stuff that I think about and I learn from because after all, we all know that life is just one big learning experience.

Hey Everyone!

Every now and then, I like to inject a little bit of me into the blog. I have to admit that reading about beauty 24/7 may be a passion of mine but I do have a life outside make-up that I enjoy sharing as well. Food is probably my next favourite thing. Back home, I’m always on Food Network and I’ve been watching Jamie Oliver and Nigella Lawson cook up a storm since my early teens. I am an absolute fan of Anthony Bourdain as well.

A few days ago, my friends and I hopped over to Cumulus Inc for lunch. We initially wanted to have brunch, but unfortunately we didn’t make the 11:30 am deadline. What’s the occasion? I probably won’t see these girls for another 3 months because of the upcoming winter holiday – I do have exams at the moment but for me, people come first so no matter how busy I am, I will always make time for my friends. So let’s go on a trip and have lunch with me!

Hey Everyone,

I think to some degree, we somehow have this misconception that beauty bloggers live a somewhat glamourous life. Alright, I have to admit. We get to go to launches as V.I.Ps and eat canapes while the PR agencies try to spoon feed us information, get free products and spa treatments and sometimes we get to come home to a wonderfully wrapped package from The Body Shop or Crabtree and Evelyn that leaves our friends scrambling to wordpress to make their own blogs. Heck, we even get recognised by some of you on the street, even when we’re out buying a vacuum cleaner at Big W, on the tram, at the checkout counter at Priceline, at Uni, on a girl’s night out in Singapore, at the airport in Penang, walking around in Sydney, having a mcflurry with your best friend or even changing at the gym (you know who you are ;)). It sounds amazing, doesn’t it? It sounds a little like the life of a mini celebrity without the hoards of fans and the pressure to look good 100% all the time but although it sounds like a bed of roses, coming from me who has done this gig for two years or so now, I’m not afraid to say that what happens behind the scenes isn’t always like eating out of the Ritz Carlton buffet. Here’s 5 things to being a beauty blogger that’s not talked about much. We have to remember that with all great things come pain staking efforts before it.

Hey Everyone,

As a reader, little do you know that the shots I take for this blog aren’t always a piece of cake, especially when I only have two hands and one has to be holding the camera and the other has to play best friends with a make-up product. It’s a bit frustrating getting everything together and when I do take shots of my face, I always have to make sure a mirror is behind as a guard against bad photos. But, all that could now be history because I got a little something in the mail. It’s my new camera remote for my DSLR! I have the Nikon D5100 with the swivel out screen that I currently use for my videos but because it’s so big, it’s not often used for my blog pictures because of it’s bulk. Wanting to add a more professional spin, I bought it on ebay for only 9 bucks to take better pictures and to all bloggers that need photos of themselves in their posts, this has got to be a god send.

Hey Everyone,

Let’s be real. You could look like Miss Universe on the outside but if you’re like the wicked witch of the west on the inside, I don’t believe you can ever be truly beautiful. Whether it’s something simple like opening the door for the next person behind you or a strong charismatic glow, inner beauty I think takes many forms. In fact, it’s something I don’t mind sharing either. So here are my top 10 characteristics of a truly beautiful woman – a woman who encapsulates a kind, powerful and strong heart. Truth be told, I believe sometimes inner beauty is all you need.

Hey Everyone!

Happy Halloween! I still remember when Halloween was worth more than a club night out and sluttified dresses. Back in the day, living in the American community in Singapore meant trick or treatin with pillowcases, going to friends houses, eating candy corn and bobbing for Apples in the good ole’ American tradition. Of course the logic of a twenty year old asking for candy among a swarm of five year olds might seem a little extraordinary, but who says we can’t celebrate Halloween with a bit of costume fun.

In early October, I met up with 5 other lovely YouTube Beauty Gurus in Melbourne – MissPixieLuLu, ProjectChester, Karlacosmetica, AddictiontoShopping and Aleesang - to do an Alice in Wonderland Halloween Makeup Tutorial Collaboration. We decided to go all out with the costumes, the video plan, the editing and the transitioning of the whole video to video, and channel to channel concept. In fact, here’s the finished product. It starts with the lovely MissPixieLuLu and the introduction and weaves into the next tutorial and then the next!

Hey Everyone,

I always say you can go through life  being afraid of the I don’t knows, but what is life if you only travel safe?

When my mother asks me: “Roseanne, are you sure it’s going to work out?

And my reply is always, “Mom, I have no idea, but I have a good feeling about this and that’s all that really matters right now.”

When I’m out and about and I happen to tell someone about roseannetangrs, the blog and the youtube channel, probably the most common question I get asked is how I started this whole thing. I get it from friends, and fledgling bloggers who want to know how I got “big” or why I started what I do in the first place. So, I thought it would be almost necessary to blog about it.

Hey Everyone!

I just got back from the Cocktail Revolution at the Southern Cross Station and it was great! This is a follow up post from my How To Make a Berrytangrs Drink & Spring Makeup Look post! Thought you might like to see how the actual event went!  :) To that, here are a few eye-candy pictures taken at Southern Cross Station. Make sure to come down to grab your goodie bag and a chance to win a wonderful crate of Schweppes goodies! The picture quality for a few pictures is lacking because I was taking it with my blackberry, my camera went out of battery halfway. Boo.

The Cube Bar looked amazing. It kind of reminded me of the movie, Madagascar, with all the crates and lovely fruits!

Hey Everyone!

Spring is coming in Australia and that means pops of color and delicious spring and summer drinks. Say good bye to the old cinnamon sticks, eggnog and vanilla of winter and hello to berries, pretty flowers and of course my favorite bright pinks.

Today in this post, I thought I’d invent my own Spring/Summer mixed drink and show you my favorite spring look and makeup. Inspired by pink lemonade, I thought sipping this in much warmer climates wearing a pretty bright outfit would be sure to attract a little attention. I’ll also be working with Schweppes today so I’ll let you know how you can meet me in person on October 21st at the Schweppes Virtual Cocktail Revolution at the end of this post!

Hey Everyone!

I thought it would be fun since it’s my second to last semester to do more posts about living in Melbourne. I have to say that I don’t go out that much. Usually, I’m stuck at uni finishing up assignments or studying for exams so unless it’s break, its rare to see me frolicking outside the city. I don’t have a car either. Today I thought I might do a very fun and sunny post at Brighton Beach, about 30 to 40 minutes away from the city with average traffic. The weather was treating us very well that day with a 28 degree benchmark which was rare in Spring. I didn’t expect Brighton Beach to be so absolutely stunning so I’m happy to share my experiences with y’all!

Hey Everyone,

Every now and then on this space I like to mix it up a bit and I have to say other than applying the latest products to review, I really like to travel. I’ve done a few Ctrl Alt Travel posts before on Penang Street Food Here and the Volcano at Yogykarta in Indonesia Here, but I thought it would be fun to do one in Melbourne, the place I’m spending the majority of my time at besides Singapore too. If you’re ever thinking of visiting Melbourne and don’t know where to go or find yourselves drumming fingers on the table on a weekend, this post may be too cool for school for you. Maybe. Today, we’re going out of the city (finally) and we’re going to go into a cool market and find our way up a winding mountain to Mt. Dandenong where we’ll even sit on a Giant’s Chair and have delcious scones. Sounds good? Yeah, thought so.

Hey Everyone!

Alright I’m not specifically going to post anything today about beauty but I am leaving for another semester of college in Melbourne. Oh, college. The joys of a slightly gloomy city, students scuffling around uni trying to get assignments done and sometimes a much too solemn ambience when it comes to exam time. Something to dearly look forward to, not. The fact that I’m awake at 7 AM means that I’m nervous and slightly borderline denial that I have to leave today. It’s always sort of heartbreaking.

But I realize that every time I do come back to Singapore, something wonderful happens in my so called blogging career and looking back on these three months, I have to say that a lot did happen.

Hey Everyone,

I’m sure all of us have a story behind our fashion style. We prefer different colors, different textures and different styles and perhaps we’ve even probably thought about our own fashion label. Now, I know I’m all makeup and beauty and I’m not particularly known for being fashionable but I do like clothes and I do have a style.

My wonderful friend, Tammy Tew (http://www.distortedframes.onsugar.com), found an amazing website featuring a very awesome fashion application and tagged me from her post ( http://distortedframes.onsugar.com/Looklet-Surprise-surprise-13860812). It’s called Looklet. Basically, think barbie doll and designer labels. You can already just imagine how much fun it is!

Hey Everyone,

Woot woot, it’s ctrl alt time. These posts add a little spice to roseannetangrs because don’t get me wrong, I love makeup but I know, I confess – I actually love other things too and one of those things is to leave my paw on unexplored territory. I do travel pretty frequently so I decided to share my experiences with you.

I recently got back from a trip with my parents to Yogyakarta and if ever you’re wondering where to go for probably one of the most ultimate asian travel experiences, then you’ve probably parked your plane at the right destination. Yogyakarta (pronounced Jog-jakarta or Jogja) is a busy city in Central Java, Indonesia. It’s very similar to any other Indonesian city with the exception that it’s just a tad bit quieter especially in traffic, but it’s uniqueness lies in it’s rich history, ancient buildings and of course the ominous Mt. Merapi. Yes, you’ve probably recognised that volcano that popped up in news stations across the world when it spewed lava and volcanic ash up to 5 meters thick two months ago. But we’ll leave that till later.

Hey Everyone!

I’m back from Penang and every now and then, I like to switch it up a bit here. That’s what “Ctrl+Alt” is for and in this edition, you get a yummy guide to Penang’s Street Food!

My parents are from Penang – which if you didn’t know – is in Malaysia. In fact, my whole ancestry basically. It’s a town that has a mix of a little modernity but more colonial history. With big black and white bungalows scattered everywhere, some of them abandoned, this was a hot spot for the British and a pit-stop for the wealthy overseas. Most parts of Georgetown, the main area, seem like time just stopped as old shop houses, signages and old town hawkers dominate the scene. It’s mostly the hokkien speaking chinese who live in Penang, sorta seems like home when everyone speaks the way you do. But just as much as it feels like home, nothing feels more like home than when I’m in Singapore.

Hey Everyone,

I decided to create a tag on a late Monday night because I really could be doing work right now. Instead I’m dreaming of that day when I don’t have to worry about how much money is in the bank. We can all dream can’t we?

So my question to you is: what would you get if you had all the money in the world?

I will be tagging some bloggers at the bottom of this post, but if you’re up for this, I want you to go ahead and do it too. By the way, this is going to be a verymaterialistic post so if you’re not up for the fun, I suggest you click the x button. Acting like a spoiled brat is part of the equation. You have to act like one. I don’t care if you’re the nicest person in the world.

Hey Everyone!

We’ve all seen the roseannetangrs logo, I’m sure floating around on every channel I have to reach you whether it be facebook, twitter, here on onsugar or on YouTube:

But where did it come from? I’ve always wanted to make my channel more established than just a hobby and thought it would be best to have a design that would represent what I do while being simple, clean and memorable. Being no designer, I ran to one of my best friends, Tammy Tew, for her help.

Tammy is one of my best friends and you’ve probably seen her in a lot in my Follow Me Around videos. She’s currently a 2nd Year RMIT fashion design student and works very hard to be where she’s at. She’s very talented and I’m always at awe of all her works and designs she’s showing me every week! I hope to see her fashion stores soon! While cuddled on her couch back in Singapore, she helped me to create this logo – a chic but clean petaled logo that was contemporary but in the form of a traditional chinese stamp – reaching towards my asian roots. For those who don’t know what the “RS” stands for, it’s for my chinese name: Rou Shyan..well my parents didn’t know pinyin so it’s spelled that way. Thank you so much dear, I owe it all to you!

Hey Everyone,

So, I’m glad to say that I am totally addicted to Alice in Wonderland after watching the movie today. In fact there is now a widescreen poster that I paid an additional $12.95 blue tacked to the wall to serve as the background to my makeup collection. I am officially obsessed. My obsession though doesn’t stem from the Urban Decay book of shadows but from the movie. I have realized that it has such rich symbolic content that I feel sharing with you would make your trip to the movies this weekend or the next so much better.

If you don’t know the story of Alice in Wonderland, I WILL RUIN IT FOR YOU in this post, so I suggest you save this for later and these are just my own opinions and thoughts.

Hey Everyone,

I thought I might blog about my current makeup collection through a series of photos. Watch the video for more in depth review! I don’t have as much makeup (i think) as some people may think I do simply because I often sell or if I can’t do that, I will throw it away if I don’t like it. Thus, it’s changed quite a bit since my last update. Enjoy!

Current set up in Melbourne..

My Everyday Brushes…

Various stuff :)

Hey Everyone,

I feel so bad that I haven’t been commenting on anyone’s post about the meet and greet. I just have to say that it was absolutely LOVELY to meet everyone – like Sophia, Sara, Jasmine (finally) and everyone who was there ( too exhaused to name right now) but it was so fun and I have to applaud Diana for organizing the meet and greet and Sarah for the games. I wish I could have stayed till the end! haha including staying for those awesome prizes at the end :) Everyone is absolutely STUNNING/HAWT STUFF :).

I absolutely loved my swap gift though – an etude house gel blush duo – absolutely amazing :) Thanks Joyce!

Hello!

I made a Christmas wishlist earlier on but now I totally want different things. Of course, I won’t get them for Christmas because I don’t celebrate it but I just need to save up on allowance for a lengthy time to get what I want below :) I don’t have a job anymore too :( They said that they confirmed but after I sent them my travel dates (which they were already aware of during the interview) said they couldn’t accommodate my schedule anymore :( ..sad. but its okay! my parents were opposed to part time jobs anyway and i’m looking forward to an internship sometime soon :D

ok sorry for my pitiful rendition of jingle bells but I love the holidays, isn’t grocery shopping with jingle bells or chestnuts roasting on an open fire made so much more fun? I think so. But, my parents don’t celebrate christmas unfortuantely so all the items listed below, I need to save up or wait till my birthday or chinese new year..but birthday not so much cuz I dont think my parents aren’t adding anything to the list of ecco shoes and macbook pro which i got early, so chinese new year it is.

Anyway if I were to celebrate Christmas…

Hey Everyone!

I know I haven’t blogged for the longest time and my greatest apologies to all of you but I have been updating youtube! So many great things have happened to me in my absence..number one being the fact that I am now sponsored by The Beauty Club! They contacted me by email and I am so happy that my name is getting out there, and to top it off I checked my email this morning and it said that “fafinettex3 has subscribed to your videos”.

I was like what!! No..probably an imitation, but it was THE fafinette that subscribed to my videos. I’ve been watching her videos for so long and it feels amazing that she likes mine too, not only that, she was able to chance upon my videos. Youtube is so exciting! Thank you to all of you!

Hello Everyone!

It’s late and I haven’t done a proper post in a long time so I shall do a update on life kind of blog, nothing too make up related, but first off:

I was browsing my youtube channel and I spotted that TODAY I was #94 Most Viewed in Australia and #6 Most Viewed – Gurus in Australia. I tried to put the screen shot in this post but its not working :(:( But YAY. I can’t believe it. Youtube def. changed my life, I got to meet so many amazing people that love and have the same passion for make up as I do (something many of my friends can’t understand) and I am so grateful for that. Thank you to all my loyal subscribers because I truly enjoy making videos and hauling for all of you. Thank you also to the make up goddess up there for inventing make up and making me an estatic happy camper whenever I buy any make up related product and to all those who blog about make up, thank you for being there whenever my study quota has run out. Honestly, putting on make up is like my cup of coffee in the morning and the thing I look forward too everyday when I wake up and your blog entries and youtube videos are like my morning news! I would love to do the marketing or accounting for NARS or MAC when I graduate >.< that would be such a dream.

Hey Everyone,

I know, I know I haven’t yet posted another video yet but I will soon I guess. I’ve just opted to take a break from finance haha and decided to do a post, oh and just now I painted my dorm mates faces to mimic a mime – yes it included lots of white face paint and alot of maybelline gel liner because there wasn’t any black lipstick. :( And I didn’t take any pictures because they were late for the party already.

Anyway, yesterday I came across Mecca Cosmetica in Melbourne which is right across the MYER department store and saw the heavenly NARS counter, well counters as a matter of fact. It was dreamy and I managed to swatch laguna bronzer and orgasm and deep throat as well as the multiples (blush sticks as well). I am utterly in love with their packaging. I didn’t take any pictures though, I think I was so absorbed in the moment that I forgot plus I’d probably be kicked out because they don’t like people taking pictures there.

Hey Everyone!

I just posted up a video on youtube – just a vlog and dorm room tour requested by fiestyskies.

I must say that my dorm looked like an absolute PRISON CELL before lol, white walls, nothing on the bed, empty desk, everything was so drab, but I put a bit of roseanne’s touch on it, and now its at least tolerable :)

& the printer isn’t in the vid, cuz I just bought it today haha.

Here are some pictures.

 

Thanks for still being my readers even if I don’t have as much time as I used to have. I willl be doing a July fav. video soon as soon as I can at least.

Hello!

Just wanted to thank everyone so much for all the best wishes. I’ve arrived safely, quite a while ago and was welcomed to slightly cold weather in my terms but I wish it was colder. I’m a very loving the cold person haha and I’ve gotten to know the place sort of well and I love it here. In terms of beauty, its very similar to the US in that it carries many brands and serves it to consumers in a similar manner. Like the states, there are huge department stores, even target, but what they have here is BIG W, woolworths, and their grocery stores also carry american brands. But they aren’t as cheap as the states.
