Or how to empty your wallet when faced with a site outage :P

First of all, my apologies to everyone who tried to access my site and found it no longer existed. There was a problem with the server which my host worked hard to rectify and I think its all alright now. Some comments earlier may have disappeared (and a post or two did too) so I duly apologise. That was due to a server migration and I can’t retrieve them. So, thank you for your patience and to those who dropped me emails to find out what was happening, thank you too for your concern! :)

With my site down the whole of yesterday, I was left to my devices picking up on work slack but hey, there is only so much boring work to do before I ended up surfing around. Being itchy fingered I ended up picking these up online:-

They are Givenchy Prisme Again! blush/highlighter in Crazy Pink (US$25) and Clarins blush in Rose Petal (US$15) both picked up at 50% off from StrawberryNET.com where the offers are on-going for a limited time. Both are brands I’ve never tried nor ever thought of trying so I’ll be quite interested to see how they fare. Continue Reading ►


New Benetint Lip Balm SPF15

Benetint Lip Balm

For lovers of Benetint, here comes the new Benetint Lip Balm SPF15icon!

Benetint Lip Balm is a tinted lip balm infused with Vitamin E and SPF15 to soften and protect your lips. It also has a light rose petal smell and lightly tints the lips benetint’s signature rose red.

I was afraid of Benetint the liquid because I can’t see me using it on my cheeks, but I can see me using the Benetint lip balm especially since I’m now into sheer lip colours. I can’t wait till it comes to Malaysia so I can test it out to see for myself how good/bad it is.

The only thing that makes me balk is the price – US$20 for 6.5g is expensive! You can now buy the new Benetint Lip Balm SPF15icon online and for a limited time until September 16, 2008, there is FREE SHIPPING within the USA for all orders that include the lip balm – use the code “BALMBENE” and for international orders, shipping is free for orders above US$100 – use the code “INTLSHIP”.


Crochet shawls

I learnt how to crochet from my mom. I’m sure if I were to hold a hook and some yarn in my hands right now, I might be able to do a few chain stitches. But that is the extent of my abilities. I don’t know what I ever made – a scarf (in hot Malaysian weather?!) or maybe a hairband. My puny abilities aside, I found a store with an adorable name, that specialises in hand-crocheted products – Adorkable Crochet. Continue Reading ►

I was rooting around my eyeshadows one day when I came across one I’d forgotten about – Bloop de Paris powder eyeshadow. It was supposed to be part of my Cheap and Good? series but somehow, this one slipped under the radar. But better late than never, so here we are – is the Bloop de Paris eyeshadow cheap and good?

Bloop de Paris eyeshadow

Bloop de Paris is a Malaysian brand pretty much like Elianto and Beautilicious. This Bloop de Paris eyeshadow in Emerald Green came from Beetrice (read her review) and costs about RM20 per eyeshadow. Is it worth it? Continue Reading ►
