Flirty & Fluttering

There are times when I’m too lazy to curl my lashes and fix it with mascara so I opt for the next best thing ~ False lashes! (aka Falsies) *Eyeshadows: Catwalk Cosmetics Runway Palette: http://on.fb.me/l6PADp Some people find it hard to use but it only takes a little patience and practice to master *the art of gluing on falsies* haha! Here’s a step by step procedure on how to properly place falsies on yourself: Measure the width of the falsies on your eyelids; not the lashes but the base.

MAC Cosmetics Wonder Woman Launch

When I saw this collection at www.maccosmetics.com, I told myself that I had to get at least one item from it because the packaging is wicked! At first, I promised that I’d only spend on a lipstick ~Russian Red~ but when I got there, the other shades looked prettier IRL so I ended up spending on more than just one item. Budget-fail.

My friend from Mac told me that the doors would open by 10am but peopleRead more

GINJA Thai Restaurant ~ JW Marriott, Phuket

Greetings from Marriott Vacation Club Mai Khao! So far, our stay here at Phuket has been lovely. I’m really enjoying the eat-sleep-swim lifestyle; a well-deserved vacation by my family after a hectic and crazy car show last weekend.

The place was very cozy but is a bit plain; lacks decor so I didn’t take a lot of pictures. I expected something more flambouyant considering it’sRead more
