So I decided to come here today because someone requested for a vegan and cruelty free makeup product post! So I thought I'd share since I've got about 10 minutes to spare now.
So please pardon me if I seem to be in a rush cos I really am :(

To begin with I don't use much makeup... I'm not a foundation person... And I'm also not into the idea of putting too many products on my face because when I do, I end up with crazy breakouts.

So my makeup routine begins like this: 
  1. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion- I put this under my eyes and on some of my pimple scars on both sides of my cheeks + my chin
  2. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard (this is the shade I use)- I blend this under my eyes and on the blemishes on my face (where I put the primer potion in step 1). I use a lighter shade so that I'm able to conceal my dark eye circles better :) I'm not that fair and my skin colour should be in "Ginger" tone but the saleslady recommended me to go down a shade lighter and hence, Custard.
  3. Tarte Loose Powder- I use this to set the areas where I put concealer on. I set it with a real techniques blush brush :)
  4. TheBalm Cosmetics Bahama Mama Bronzer- my FAVOURITE bronzer of ALL time. So much better than the BenefitCosmetics Hoola one (I had benefit makeup before I was vegan p.s. benefit is NOT cruelty free or vegan)
  5. TheBalm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter- HANDS DOWN THE MOST PIGMENTED AND BEAUTIFUL HIGHLIGHTER OF ALL TIME. If I had to choose one makeup product I can never live without it'd be this highlighter. It's da fucking bomb.com
  6. Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray (Oil Control)- to set the makeup on my face :) I spray it all around my face and it just seriously feels super refreshing and nice! Also, my makeup lasts the entire day with this...even when I'm perspiring!

Yes that's about it for the makeup I use :) I do use mascara by Tarte cosmetics but I ran out of it recently and I haven't got time to re-purchase it so I've been going mascara-free for the past 2 days LOL

When I've updated my makeup collection I'll definitely be back here again updating you guys :)

Till then! Xx



BROWNICE- VEGANFOODHUNT

Sunday, September 13, 2015



Went to Brownice with JJ a couple of times ever since I came back from the UK :-)
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOOD:
Their Tofu Crumble Pizza. Oh Lord. I rate it an 8.5/10.
Their waffles with ice cream (specifically dark chocolate ice cream & strawberry). I rate it an 8/10.
Their MUDPIE which was a chocolate ice cream cake. Oh my gosh. I rate it an 8.5/10.

EVERYTHING THERE IS SO RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS AND THEY'RE ALL VEGAN!!!!

SEE?! You can get nice yummy food as a vegan. You don't have to give up ANYTHING at all... You just have to find alternatives. Because I'm telling you, the ice cream they have at Brownice tastes like LEGIT COW PUS ICE CREAM. I'm not even kidding you.

I was telling JJ that I felt so terrified because it tasted so real and it's been FOREVER since I last tasted a drop of cow pus.
AND THEIR VEGAN CHEESE? GOD BLESS MY SOUL it freaking tastes like real cheese!!!!!!!!!
IT FREAKED ME OUT SO BAD but it was SO DAMN GOOD.

Another pizza that JJ and I tried a few days back was the "HOT VEGAN CHICK" pizza. And oh my holy moly mother of pearl balls the mock CHICKEN on the pizza tasted like real chicken.
I AM NOT EVEN EXAGGERATING.

PLEASE GO TO BROWNICE AND VISIT THEM WHEN YOU HAVE THE CHANCE!!!!
It's a beautiful, peaceful, and lovely place that serves AMAZEBALLS vegan food. :)
I can see myself going there weekly now........ Bye bye money....









Ok that's it I came here just to promote Brownice now goodbye :D

Back in your arms.

Today's blogpost would just be a random mixture of photos I took since I've been back in Singapore over the past 1 week. :-) nothing much happened really I was just chillin' everyday and adventuring Singapore with my partner in crime :D



Had dinner with JJ and his family a few days back at Zi Zai Vegetarian (Yishun).
MAN IT WAS SO FREAKING GOOD!!
My favourites would have to be the carrot cake and the cereal tofu.
OH MY GOSH. SO FREAKING TASTY.
Please ask for NO MILK & NO EGGS when you're there. :-) xx












Went ice-skating with JJ after SO LONGGGGGGGGGGGG :(
I've made a promise to the rink that I'll be back at least once a month...
My skills are getting rusty so I seriously need to visit the rink more often :(


We dined at Greendot and it was amazing!
I ordered tomyam noodles and JJ ordered laksa. BOTH WERE AMAZEBALLS.
And super affordable as well. Service was fantastic.
Would definitely go there again :-)







At the SCAPE flea market they had this thing where you can customize your phone casing...
SO COOL!
I did mine there and it costed about $20??
It's not VERYYYY expensive but I've to say it's slightly overpriced :(
But worth it tho haha look at Alice with the full sleeve tattoos SO COOL?!

Ending off August with a UK/Europe Tourist Guide video. :-) 

LONDON- UK & Europe 2015

Sunday, August 30, 2015

Hello earthlings! I'm finally back with my LAST post of this series...and I'll be ending it with London. :)

LONDON WAS AMAZING.
I've never loved a city so much before until I met London.
This is not my first time in London. I've been there when I was 11 years old and I remember enjoying myself like crazy back then. 

Anyone who has never been to London... You NEED to give it a spot in your bucketlist. 
Search up airbnb and stay in a place near Oxford Street. Stay there for AT LEAST 7 days I would say. If I could I totally wouldn't mind staying there for a month (only if JJ, Casper and Shiro was with me). 

Ok I shall quit rambling and share a brief description of how I spent my last 4 nights in London. :)


When we arrived in London it was really really late (at about 10pm) so we didn't have a chance to venture out! When we reached our apartment we settled down and took a stroll along Oxford Street. :)
Headed back home at about 1am, showered and went to bed. 



For everyone out there, vegans or murderers, if you ever go to London, PLEASE TRY VANTRA VITAO. I assure you with all my heart, it tastes better than dead animals.
Even my murderer mum agrees. I PROMISE YOU, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
Besides, why would you miss such a good chance to save some animals?!!!!!


If you're at Vantra, please try their raw vegan CHOCOLATE CAKE. It is literally hands down the best cake I've ever tasted in my entire life. I don't have it pictured here unfortunately but you can find the picture in my instagram :)

When I was in London I literally went to Vantra at least 2 times per day. Even the staffs there recognise me LOL!! I had 2 cakes each day I swear the addiction was pretty serious.
I'm actually half glad they don't have Vantra here because if they do....man am I gonna be gaining 1kg per week (legit).











Below is a list I compiled of the "MUST GO TO SHOPS IN LONDON". When you're there, please visit these stores. I promise you, you will NOT be disappointed. 
- LUSH @ Oxford Street (OH MY GOD IT IS THE BEST STORE IN THE WHOLE OF OXFORD ST I KID U NOT)- Topshop
- URBAN OUTFITTERS ♡
- American Apparel ♡
- ZARA
- Nike Town
- BRANDY MELVILLE ♡
- Hamleys (omgod please go there please i beg u) 
Yeap that's it. My life basically revolved around those shops. I miss Oxford Street so so so much... :'(







ALRIGHTZ this is it for London. :)

Thank you guys for reading my blog and I really hope you enjoyed this entire series of what I did in UK & Europe!

I will also be doing a video on "UK/EUROPE TOURIST GUIDE" for all the people who are intending to visit UK/Europe during their holidays with tips and tricks on how to save money & time etc + my personal experience with things like pickpockets. :)
The video will be uploaded tomorrow and I will put the link in my blog so stay tuned!!

P.S. To have easier access to this series of blogposts, you can search under the label on the right: "UK & Europe 2015".



I will see you very very soon.
Goodbye.
