Hey Everyone!

Can you believe it? It’s already October. I’m sure you agree with me that 2014 is flying by super fast and soon it will be my favourite season of the entire year – the holidays and of course Christmas! With the holidays comes the season of giving and that’s when a lot of our favourite makeup brands create really cool gift sets. I was invited to the Sephora Singapore Holiday Press Day to see what is in store this year! This is an event I never miss because each prominent brand in Sephora holds a booth on this day and they fly their international representatives over to talk about what they have to offer. Here’s what I loved best from the amazing selection!

I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of The Simpsons! I grew up with it! I used to come home and literally wait for the show to air at about 6PM everyday on the local TV. It’s so funny but it has some grown up humor as well that I love! So when M.A.C came out with The Simpsons collection, I was so excited.

I managed to get my hands on one palette from the collection – Marge’s Extra Ingredients. I believe there are a few more eyeshadow quads from the collection but I feel this is the most wearable of the lot because purples tend to suit any skin tone!The quad is so cute. On the front, Marge is peeking out at you! I reckon this might be her eyeshadow palettes if she did use make-up. Marge’s Extra Ingredients seems to be inspired by her hair I believe! When you open up the palette, you have four shades and I love how each of them is imprinted with Marge’s face as well. So adorable. This particular palette comes with Harpooned Heart (a light pink), Sexy PB & J (a deep purple), Beehive Blue (a cosmic blue) and Vivacious Vacuum Cleaner (a blue black). Don’t you love the names?

August through insta
For me, instagram isn’t just a place for me to post pretty pictures of make-up, it’s a place where I can share my life with all of you! I personally love reading about people’s lives through instagram on other blogs so today I thought I’d do one to pretty much to summarise my month of August! August was a particularly busy and amazing month for me so I’m excited to share my snapshots of the month!

First of all, one of my best friends, Rinku, is back from the States! We met way back in Middle School and we used to wait for the MRT bus together after school. We had a few classes together as well – including Social Studies and Psych! Good times with this girl! Got to watch Hundred Foot Journey the other day at The Cathay and snapped this selfie of us! The best thing about it is that it looks like it was taken with a proper digital camera right? Nope, it’s my Samsung GALAXY K zoom LTE camera smartphone! I wanted to take a moment and show you my recent amazing discovery called Selfie Alarm on my phone and how I get to take amazing quality selfies now without being afraid that I’m out of frame when I use the back camera! Of course, the back camera takes the best quality pictures but can be difficult to use because you can’t see yourself when you take a selfie!

Fall is basically here and it’s one of my favourite seasons not just because of the pretty leaves but it’s the make-up looks that I love too! Here in Singapore, we don’t get fall unfortunately but that doesn’t stop me from delving into fall colors and makeup! My latest acquisition is the Urban Decay Pulp Fiction palette from Urban Decay’s fall 2014 collection! You can get it at Sephora and it retails for SGD $52, if you’re curious.

The Urban Decay Pulp Fiction palette consists of 5 shades that is a mix of subtle shimmer and totally matte. Righteous, Tyranny and Anger are all matte colors while Vengence and Furious have hints of shimmer. It’s the perfect palette for fall because when I think of a fall look, this palette is a classic example. They’re all shades of brown and cream with the exception of a very useful matte black. Along with the collection is a lip pencil, lipstick and nail polish in Mrs. Mia Wallace which is a dark red that I didn’t get. Instead, I dug up Guerlain’s Iris Noir lip pencil to sub in for my lips! Today I’m going to be showing you how to do this beautiful look that will for sure turn heads this fall!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m sure we all have our own list of favourite apps that we can’t live without. Being possibly addicted to technology, I know I have mine. For me, I’m always on the lookout for apps that make my life easier OR apps that connect me to the rest of the world. I’m not much of a gamer although on some nights, I just download a bunch if I need to de-stress! In fact, my tablet or phone is the first thing I reach for right before I sleep and right when I wake up! Here are my top five favourite apps that I love! I’ll be showcasing them on my new tablet – the Samsung GALAXY Tab S (10.5”) LTE- just because it’s bigger and a beauty. (Thank you Samsung Asia for sponsoring me this new tablet!)

Hey Everyone,

important

Do you know how important YOU are? Most of the time we always underestimate ourselves. I know I always do. I always doubt how much I mean to someone, doubt how much I can do and most of all, doubt what I can do. And I think this really needs to stop. A lot of what we need to achieve in life cannot be done simply because we cannot believe in ourselves. It’s for sure a struggle that I’m still battling.

My question is – Why do we always need to prove ourselves to other people? I always feel sad when my salary doesn’t hit the salary my parents expect from me. I always feel insecure when I feel like I don’t look the part. I feel insuffcient when my job description doesn’t sound like everybody elses. But, Why don’t we turn the tables and try to prove ourselves to…. ourselves. That’s how important you are. You are the only person you need to impress. You are the only person you need to prove yourself to. You are the only person you need recognition from. You are the only person you need validation from.
