Moving all the Way Across to the Other Side of the World ~ Hello Canada!

This post will not be a huge surprise for those who has been following me all this while. I have been mentioning one too many times about my huge upcoming move all the way to the other side of the world for a couple of months now.

I was born and grew up in Malaysia for the first 30 plus years of my life and today, 10 September 2014, I will be following my husband back to his home country in Canada. This is a huge decision and one of the biggest change in my life but I am blessed with supportive family and friends. This is not a temporary move, it's a permanent migration. I will still come back to visit my family every now and then but it will never be as often as I like.

REVIEW: Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation

This foundation is not new in the market, it has been for some time now and to be honest, I also had it since last year. As in why I only choose to review it now well, recently I have been loving foundations again. I am just so fickle, I know. BB cream who? I can be such a makeup slut.

Lancome Teint Miracle foundation is a dewy finish foundation that promises to give radiance to your skin. It supposedly hydrates your skin up to 18 hours (who on earth wears makeup that long anyway?) and provides up to 12 hours wear.

REVIEW: COVO Kiss-Proof Matte Lip Fluid (Spellbinder)

I do love matte lips, always have and always will. Yes, it can be drying and with the wrong product, matte lips will make my lips look drier than the Atacama desert but with the right product and application, it can look beautiful and the best part, very long lasting.

And this is where COVO Kiss-Proof Matte Lip Fluid* comes in. COVO graciously gave me the opportunity to choose one lip fluid to try when I attended the media launch last week. It is no secret that I am a huge fan of bold statement lips so naturally I am attracted to the shade Spellbinder. On me, Spellbinder is a beautiful berry red with a blue undertone which made my teeth look slightly whiter.

REVIEW: Guerlain Rouge Exceptional Complete Lip Colour (Georgia)

Let me tell you a story.....

One fine day, right after the biggest, belly stuffing lunch which ended with the biggest, fluffiest cupcake dessert, I strolled passed a quaint little cupcake shop. I saw the prettiest, cutest cupcake in the display window, similar to the one I just had but not so much that it deserves to be checked out. So I walked into the shop and that led me to have an itty bitty taste which finally ended with me stuffing my face with another damn cupcake that my waist, thighs and butt could do without....

And that was pretty much a similar story of how I ended up with this lipstick...because the shade was similar with a few lipsticks that I owned but 'Oh my goodness, it's sooo shiny!' It was MYR175.00 worth of shininess. And I don't even like cupcakes....damn you cupcake shop named Sephora.

August Favourites

Eeeeekkkkk!!! Has August really come to an end? How oh how did the time managed to escape me? It felt like only yesterday I wrote about my July favourites (read here) and now here I am posting about my August favourites. I swear the older I get, the faster time passes by. Maybe it's just me feeling this way...please tell me I am not the only one feeling this way? It would be refreshing to not be the awkward one for once.

August has been a crazy month for me. There were a few changes in my life and I mean big changes. I was officially unemployed on Saturday, 16 August. For the first time after many years, I am jobless. It felt strange and in the days leading up to my final day reporting to work, there were many anxiety, nervousness and yes, tears. I have always had a job, was always working since I was 19. Not having a job felt like my safety net was forcibly yank from beneath me and it is scary. But as I am typing this now, I must admit that there was nothing for me to worry about. Hubby dearest has been extremely supportive and I am more than happy to be taking up the role of a full time home maker. Besides, I am really looking forward to our new life in Canada which is in less two weeks time! Yay!

Since I am no longer working, my makeup routine has changed tremendously. I still need to look as humanly as possible but the routine is way more simple.

COVO Kiss-Proof Matte Lip Fluid Media Launch and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

I had an exciting day on Wednesday and for those of you who follows me on Twitter and Instagram, you will know that I am referring to me attending my first PR event. I was invited by Ms. Julie Wong the founder of COVO Cosmetics to attend the media launch of their latest product, Kiss-Proof Matte Lip Fluid. This event was held at One Utama shopping centre and can I say wow, I haven't visited this mall for so many years and what a huge change indeed. I really need to get out more often...
