But before anything, let me tell you a little bit about her so you’ll understand why she will love these items. Just like me, she is obsessed products.

Dinner @ Fire In The Hole

A few weeks ago, I had dinner with my friends at Hole In The Wall. We went to Wrong Ramen’s pop-up store, FIRE IN THE HOLE. If you’re wondering why it’s called such – that’s because your “hole” will literally be on fire after eating everything on the menu. Yes, that’s right. Everything they serve is SPICY! But don’t worry, you can pick the spiciness level. Some are already hot at MILD but if you’ve got a brave soul and a steel butthole, then go for the HOT level. There are only 5 items in the menu so it’s easyRead more

OOTD: I’m a Benebabe! (Benefit Cosmetics Makeup Seminar) | Forever 21 Forever You Collection

Sharing my OOTD from last summer’s Benefit Makeup Seminar at their pop-up store in Central Square Mall BHS. I didn’t have much time to decide on what to wear so I just grabbed the most pink top and skirt that I have in my closet. Haha! I got my entire ensemble from Forever 21 years ago but they never go out of style. The pink and blue combination was perfect for the occasion and season. Now, since we’re going towards winter, I think it’s time to take out those jackets, boots and black dresses like Forever 21’s Forever You collection. (CheckRead more
