Its the Lunar New Year here in Malaysia so I’m away on holiday for a few days, visiting family and generally stuffing myself silly with food and cookies
To everyone celebrating the Lunar New Year I wish you all Happy New Year and to all Chinese Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Are you still looking for that perfect Valentine’s Day gift? Well, how about this Active Crystal Heart pendant by Philips that comes with a 1GB USB memory?
This pretty fascinating item is a collaboration between Philips and Swarovski crystals. The stylish pendant comes with stainless steel on one side and crystals on the other. Open the heart pendant and a USB port is revealed.

I will be doing my personal recommendations for budget makeup over 2 parts so it doesn’t get too long. These brands I mention are easily found in most pharmacies including Guardian, Watson’s, Caring etc and if you have a Sasa, look in there too.
