Fitness Check In #3

Know when to rest. Listen to your body. That’s what I’ve learned from the past couple of months. I’ve been training pretty hard for a while, 6 days a week, crazy intense cardio (HIIT and Tabata), crazy heavy lifting, and the improvement to my strength and stamina kept me going. I was hooked! Then, maybe… Read more »

Sunday Stash Shopping #52: Benefit Bossy

I was de-cluttering and found an old eye shadow I bought because of Lisa Eldridge. She seems to have the ability to make me buy all sorts of things I don’t need. Anyone here with the same problem? I’m much better now though. This is one of the products she said she loved on eye… Read more »

Review: Koyudo Fupa 01, 02, 14

Aren’t these little kabukis cute? I saw plenty of these on Instagram (evil!) and got really curious. I was directed to CD Japan if I was interested, and that was where it started and ended.

Do Certain Lip Colors Make You Look More Youthful or More Mature?

My mom always says that red lips age a person. She prefers sheer nudes but I always think brighter colors make a person look more lively, more cheerful. Bright lips instantly perk up a woman’s complexion and I always tell my mom she looks so much better with them on. She, on the other hand, thinks it’s… Read more »

Review: Biotherm Biosource Cleansing Balm and Exfoliating Gelee

I’m having a hard time churning out reviews, because I’ve been feeling uninspired. I feel bored when I have to review average or mediocre things, and while I do not guarantee reviews for products sent, I still feel responsible and obliged to do one. This review, however, is not an obligation, because I really want… Read more »

Monthend Randomness: Let’s Talk About Love

I had a rant on blogging and my addiction to beauty stuff a while back <you can read it here if you’re curious> and I brought up the possibility of not blogging anymore.

Pencils to throw and used up skin care

Empties: Devoured and Dumped

There is no way to make empties post interesting. However, I still want to document what I used up. I have used up skincare as usual, and threw out old makeup. I threw out mostly old pencils, both eye pencils and lip pencils. Dude, I had eye infections so regularly, I totally freaked out. Gone… Read more »

    Review: Clinique Quickliner For Eyes Intense in Intense Chocolate is Intensely Annoying

    When it comes to eye pencils, I like mine to be retractable. Takes the sharpening out of the equation. I also like my liners to be smudge proof and humidity proof. I have a lot of black liners, so I thought I’d go for brown. I swatched this brown and I immediately fell in love.  … Read more »

    Sunday Stash Shopping #50: By Terry Ombre Blackstar Misty Rock

    Instead of doing a review on this cream shadow in a stick, the By Terry Misty Rock, I thought I’d just use it for this stash shopping post. It took me a while to understand this product.
