Beauty Carousel

Beauty Carousel

Happy Valentine's Day!

The lovely team at Beauty Carousel emailed me to ask if I would like to give some of their products a try, it was their Valentine's Day surprise package.

So I thought "Hell yeah!"

Who wouldn't want to receive a surprise Valentine's Day Beauty package!?!

[K-Palette 1 Day Magic Series 3D Palette by K-Palette]

All-in-one Pink & Orange Blush, Bronzer, and Highlight. I love this palette for it's convenience, this compact little case fits perfectly in my make up pouch for on-the-go touch ups! 

I particularly love the bronzer for contouring my nose, and the shimmery highlight to enhance my bridge!

Also, thumbs up to a good colour payoff!

[AB Double Eyelid Liquid by Automatic Beauty]

[K-Palette Real Lasting Eyepencil 24h Waterproof Superblack by K-Palette]

Precision, precision, precision. This superfine tip automatic eye pencil saves the trouble of having to sharpen constantly (mess free fuss free!) and gone are the days of blunt smudgy applications!

I can even do a wing with it! What more do I need to say!

[Beauty Blender Pure (Single) by Beauty Blender]

If you love to play with make up, there will probably be this little toy in your to-try-list.

I haven't heard a bad review on the infamous Beauty Blender.

So they say it blends out foundations beautifully, streak free, and the tear drop shape enables you to reach even the trickiest places on your face.

I can't agree more.

This dense springy sponge is a dream to work with. There is no need to drag my favourite foundation, pressing it in with little dabbing moves allows for a airbrushed finish which is so quick to achieve. I love the feel of the sponge, its perfectly squishy. There really isn't anything to complain about!

If there is just one problem I need to solve.. 

Someone needs to figure out the quickest most efficient way to get this baby cleaned! :(

Not a huge issue though. Definitely a great addition to my make up bag!


Thank you Beauty Carousel for giving me this opportunity to try the things I've always wanted to try, and the brands I never thought of trying before. A one-stop online beauty shop with so much to explore, in the comfort of your own bed.

Till the next!

Bringing back the OOTDs

O hai.

Dark Wash, Size XS

Came out of an appointment that day thinking.. 

Husband is an American, immersed in rustic designer vibe. 

Wife's a Singaporean, but you can tell she has spent a significant length of time overseas from her accent. 

They work in a not so little, tastefully decorated space in the most unexpected of places. It was 2 stories linked by the artsy flight of stairs, and complete with a cat. Meow. 

Reminded me of an article I once read, we end up marrying people of similar calibre and social standing (more often than not). I have to agree.

Looks like the kind of life I won't mind living.

Loysel's Toy

Loysel's Toy
66 Kampong Bugis
Singapore 338987

Hot & Iced Mocha

No stranger to the cafe scene, Loysel's Toy is a tiny little hideout tucked beside the Kallang Riverside Park. We had a company event there, and decided to end the day with a nice satisfying cup of coffee.

Short & sweet, Loysel's Toy served us one of the best coffee I've had. Extremely rich in taste, it definitely stood out from the many brunch places I've been to.

The bunch menu looked amazing, as the servers hurried by us with hot piping plates of eggs ben, toast, you name it. A place I would love to go back again for a second round, and this time food to go along.

I highly recommend! Yums!
