Labour Day + Weekend

Missed an entry yesterday so I'm making it up by posting a combined entry for the Labour (May) Day holiday and yesterday.

We had a girly gathering at Mrs Yeo's place for her 2nd pride and joy, Isabelle's 2nd birthday and I brought these to her place. A cake version of Chocolate Brittle and Orange Squares with a citrus bursting cream cheese frosting.

My little precious baby and me. Can't stop loving this little cheeky fella whom I am extremely proud of whenever he calls me God-Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa loudly. He loves dragging the Ma and I absolutely love it whenever he does it. -giggles-

The day after, there were some pictures from the gathering / party and in the background of 1 picture was Ryan clinging onto me while we were watching the other kids play in the foreground. I absolutely love this candid picture as it has captured a priceless moment between me and my precious baby darling Ryan...

My FOTD on May Day which is kinda my typical weekend / public holiday look.

Fast forward to Saturday, together with Ryan's parents, we brought the little fella to the Zoo where he was so excited about the animals and started calling out the names of the animals whenever he spots one.

Despite being all exhausted from the sweltering heat, this cheeky little fella had the energy to play with me in the car on our way back while his father fell asleep and his mother concentrating behind the steering wheel. Love this little man to bits!

And just so to keep this post beauty related, this is my FOTD for the Zoo. I had initially wanted to leave my hair down but decided to have it up just before leaving the house and that was the best decision made ever! It was extremely warm and humid and I was a total hot mess when I got home except for my eyes... Loving the combination of K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Liquid Liner on my upper lid and Miss Hana Pencil Eyeliner on my waterline!

And there you go. My May Day and weekend outing to the Zoo in a summarized entry..


Empties / Products completed in April 2014

Did not complete a whole load of products in April but it is always nice to complete products.

1) Daiso side-sealed cotton puffs - I love this particular side-sealed cotton puffs from Daiso and have used several boxes. Each box is S$1 for 90 pieces. They actually come as a bundle of 2 boxes for S$2 so that makes 1 box S$1.

2) NuTeen Acnes & Pimples Away Sleeping Mask - No stranger to my HG sleeping mask that I am currently using as a moisturizer as my skin has been acting up from work stress.

3) Mentholatum Acnes Sealing Jell - I am using this as a mattifying primer for my acne skin lately from work stress and it works wonders!

4) Elizabeth Arden Ceremide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara - My HG mascara from quite a while ago. This is in a deluxe sample size that I have quite a few in my stash as my aunt is an avid Elizabeth Arden skincare fan and will always get me a couple of this mascara whenever she is hauling.

5) Heroine Make Kiss Me Liquid Eyeliner - This was a sponsored product from quite a while back which was coincidentally the first liquid eyeliner that I could master the skill of applying liquid eyeliner in straight precise line. Unlike felt tip liquid liners, such a liner take a little more skill in the application and I am glad that I can now apply all sorts of liquid eyeliner! Unless this goes on sale, I will opt for the felt tip version as this takes a little more time to dry than the former. But as soon as it is dried, it is so smudgeproof that it can last me the entire day of work including a game of badminton in the evening!

6) Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray - This is a deluxe size of the previous formulation / packaging that I bought for travel. It is a pretty good product but I still prefer my Skin Food Red Orange Makeup Finish (Matte Type) for the oil control. I have another bottle of this Urban Decay in my stash for my next trip.

7) Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 - My skin has been really terrible lately from work stress and this is one pimple cream I totally swear by now. Unfortunately, it is not available in Singapore. I get it from in which they often have a sale on this and I will pick up at least 2.


Mentholatum Acnes Compact Powder

I was in Batam, Indonesia in October of 2013 and came across this compact powder at the Hypermart in Mega Mall for less than S$3. It was retailing for Rp28,600 but there was a 35% discount and I paid Rp18,590 which was extremely affordable!

I love the Mentholatum Acnes range but have never seen this powder before and so without hesitation, it was in my shopping cart!
