This year, due to various circumstances, which includes the lack of good food near work, and the rising prices of food, especially at the hawkers, I decided to make it a point to bring my lunches to work. I used to a while ago, but as with a lot of things, it didn’t last as long as it should.

But I’m going strong now, and I attribute it to Instagram, where I slot in pictures of my packed lunches in between my beauty updates, and I tag them #PBPacksLunch and you know what makes it fun? The interaction I get! :D

And what makes it even more fun is that some people have told me that it’s inspired them to pack their own lunches, and that spawned a new hashtag #PBMadeMePackLunch. No, I don’t make packed lunches for people, but I try to inspire people to join me :D

But what I’ve also been asked, is about the “equipment” I use to carry my lunches to work, especially hot lunches, because I enjoy eating hot food better than cold; and my process. So I promised I’d write a post on why packed lunches are a good thing and what you can use and here it is! :)

Naturally, if you too pack lunch to work, I’d love to hear your ideas! If you want to start, I hope this helps!

I’ve mentioned this occasionally in my blog posts in the past 6 months or more, that I no longer wear mascara. The last post I wrote about a mascara was back in 2013. What this means is that I’ve not been wearing mascara for at least 6 months, if not 12!

I’ve had a few of you ask me why and I’ll tell you why here. It’s not scientific, nor a beauty rule. Perhaps a rule I’m breaking, but it’s just something I’ve decided to cut out of my routine.

My question for you though is what do YOU think? :D

I was feeling a bit blah last week, and I’ve sort of worked out what it is (No, it’s not that damned construction). It’s beauty fatigue.  So, as much as I hate making announcements (because I always find myself going back on my word not long after) I’m just going to say that I’ve put myself on a beauty spending diet.

Not a no-buy nor a low-buy (I won’t commit that much) but just a diet of sorts, so slim-and-selective-buying maybe? So what this means for me is more money to save (yay! Or maybe to spend on other things heh) and what this means for you is that I’ll be working off the pile of material I own from yonks ago. This may also mean you may not get the latest and newest (unless I’m given access to them, which I’m not begging for – if it happens, it happens c’est la vie) but you still get beauty talk and I hope that means you don’t all run away :)

Which brings me to my favourite day cream du jour – REN V-Cense™ Youth Vitality Day Cream. I’d used a version of night cream from REN powered by Frankincense many years ago, which I really liked and this is the new iteration in day cream form.

I like REN products in general. They’ve got a lovely clean, simple aesthetic and the concept is a good one. I have noticed though that they have changed their outlook over the years. Previously, they used to have these crazy long names of products and list their bio-active ingredients in the name and on the label. These days, they’ve abandoned that for a shorter, snappier naming process.

Which is probably a good thing because I’d have liked to ask them was sort of ingredient V-cense™ is. I’ve actually already used up half the bottle before I remembered that I hadn’t told you about this!

Ok, there’s this infernal construction work going on outside my office window that makes me want to stab someone. Does this explain why I’ve been tardy with blog posts? Erm…. can it? LOL!

I’m just about all caught up with my emails (if I owe you one, I should have replied. If I didn’t, I didn’t get it) and I’m also all caught up with the comments (whew!) and I’ve just had some stuff going on, so I’m taking it slow and easy (read: I’m scrabbling around racking my brains trying to find something to blog about).

Rambling and excuses aside, I saw this rather interesting tag at Lily’s blog and it looked like fun. If you are studying psychology, you could well psycho-analyse me like the “burning house” question eh? :D But me aside, I’d love to hear what YOUR answers are too! :D So here we go – “What if…”
