Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette & Vintage Capsule in Smog

Hiya bellas, I’m so tempted to say Happy Friday because it’s already the end of the week. Don’t you just love public holidays that fall close to the weekend. Firstly let me apologize for going AWOL on you the last week or two. I don’t know what is wrong me/my brains because it’s just not functioning properly. I had planned so many updates and reviews but I’ve been feeling illiterate lately. Yes literally illiterate. Whenever I tried to sit and write a blog post, my mind would hit a brick wall and all I wrote was garbage. Everything was ‘nice’ or…

I’m such a geek I know. After having such an awesome day, we got to play with some of the new…

Wishlist Wednesday – Tarte Holiday Sets 2016

With throngs of holidays sets being released by brands each week, I can’t help but lust over some of them. After experiencing sub-par, mediocre workmanship in this holiday collection last year, I’ve been skeptical to purchase any holiday sets thus far. I’ve been brainwashed into thinking the items are made in bulk on the other side of the world to save costs because they know people NEED to buy gifts for their loved ones. I know all items are made in bulk in factories all over the world, but hey, I’m trying to change my perception. I’ve seen so many gorgeous new…
