Favourites | January 2014

I thought I'd start again doing this monthly favourites post - because I love reading about them and I also hope I'll be able to do this every month. God how was I so spendy last month! I spent so much on skincare but only one came as expected (so unfortunate!) hence not many made it to my favourites.

Since I have been on skincare obsess for the past month, I found a new cleanser - Simple Kind to Skin Facial Wash Gel (review here) which I've been using twice a day daily. Then my new day moisturiser that I ordered came. Although I have only been using it for a week, I'm already in love with it. The citrus-y smell, light texture and it doesn't look greasy or shiny after applying but still keep my skin moisturise - my new love Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser. I also have to thank my serum - Laneige Water Bank Essence and sleeping mask - Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX for keeping my skin hydrated and moisturised every night.

On to makeup, I have been using Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Sand Beige - I found Nude to have pink undertone instead of yellow or neutral which I think won't look good on me. For concealer I also have been using Revlon Colorstay concealer in Medium - it has an orange undertone and it works well on my under eye area and also red spots besides my nose. I also have been using the blusher in my Laura Mercier palette a lot last month. It gives a healthy glow on my face. Such a pretty colour! So these are the products that I have been using a lot and most loved last month.

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.


1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.


Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…
