Feeling bookish

To Read list:

Helene Wecker’s first novel; The Golem & The Jinni.


I first saw this way back… Months ago actually and have been meaning to read it. Here it is in my hands 🙂 and I shall start it soon. I’ve lost the talent of juggling my reading… So.




Beauty Chat : Soap & Glory “The Scrub of Your Life”

Ok. So…. *sheepishly shuffles feet* I am a little tardy on this post.. I think it’s more than a week already. I seriously have lack of discipline. So here it is..

*Deep Male TV commentator voice*

“Presenting , the much raved about, fabulous and sassy brand name all women should try before they die… Soap & Glory’s The Scrub of Your Life! Give them a round of applause!”

*thundering sound of clapping & you can see Soap & Glory-ers hugging each other, tears streaming down each of their faces*


I have only ever tried one other Soap and Glory product, which was the Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme lip plumper.. you may read the post here (one of my favorite posts, if i may say so myself *flicks hair*.. ) and to be honest, i really like their packaging. They have very catchy descriptions and sound very candid and fun, they’ve got this pin-up sexy vibe about them…… i *love* pin-up… when it’s not *too* booblicious and is done tastefully. I think there’s a thin line though………. I believe i am side tracking again.

So anyway! Yes. Read on.

As Saturday hums closer..

So here’s a small haul post! It was one of those lone break times I was having and there happened to be an atrium sale.. And I’ve *always* wanted to try Elf. Cos they don’t do animal testing. So why not?

Been looking for kabuki brushes too. Inexpensive ones.


1.Elf brush shampoo. I wasn’t sure if I needed this since I usually use normal shampoo and I don’t use animal hair *throws a filthy look at goat or squirrel hair makeup brush users* but I bought it anyway. It’d be great to use their own “proper” shampoo although what’s proper, I don’t even know anymore. I’m beginning to feel like those brushes are just like pets. Anyway the shampoo says its “an anti bacterial brush cleanser for thorough cleaning in between makeup applications”. Not sure what they mean by “in between”, if they mean I’m going to rush to the toilet to give a 5min bath for my brushes while I’m applying make up.. I’m not so sure.

Heh. I’m kidding, I’m really liking this small bottle. It’s really neat. And I’ll definitely try it soon.

2. Elf Studio kabuki face brush. Lookie! I now have my own kabuki brush! I’ve always wanted one! Because they’re small, fat & so fluffy/furry/soft. Anyway, it’s made of Taklon and its SO SO SOFT. I’m raving. I’ll probably fall asleep snoring while brushing my face all over with this.

Also I’ve always thought owinge’s tail is somehow like a kabuki brush. Just look:

Oh. Oops. Is it putting you off? I’m not sorry. Now, keep reading *grabs your head right back*

3. Elf Studio baked blush inChicky peeky picky Chicky Peachy Cheeky. I’ve always had a soft spot for baked blushes & baked eye shadows. And I’ve always been into the slightly tan “glowy”, mild shimmery and peachy bronzy shade.. I like the warmer tones. So I thought this was so perfect, although a bit nothing out of the ordinary for me.. Since I’ve been using this kind of shade for two years. But I was actually gauging that it’d blend so beautifully well with my bronzer. So there goes. Sigh. I’m so comfort zone-y I think I might just cry. It’s time I donned blue blusher. Yes, blue. No, no, you definitely read it right. What? No. I said blue.

4. Earrings. The stud definitely work-safe/approved and the other gem is just so pretty.


5. Triangle Makeup sponges. Excellent for liquid makeup and to blend into hard to reach corners of your face (e.g sides of the nose maybe) They can also tap dance across the table while you’re putting on eyeliner, it says so at the back of the package.


Well no they don’t really. They do fire performances and sword swallowing actually, I’ve seen em at it.

K. Maybe not.. I just thought to spice up their “resume” you know? Like why you should get make up sponges.
Ah well.

So that’s it. I’m gonna pull a Schwarzenegger and say I’ll be back

Till we chat again. 😉


Holiday treat for me!


Hello! Just thought I’d smugly share this photo with the World Wide Web tonight. Went on a naughty little trip to Kinokuniya bookstore (a very, very dangerous place for a book slut with little self control.. Like me) and I just fell in love with the little summary at the back of this book.

It’s about this young boy, Peter Nimble his name is. He’s blind and an orphan.. “Who also happens to be the greatest thief who ever lived”

This book promises magic, adventure and strangeness. A very potent concoction, one I would very much like to be the signature taste of my shelves. :B I love children’s books. I hope I will never ever tire of reading them.

Can’t wait to start on this, however I will let it rest first.. While I continue on my Re-reading of Keys to the Kingdom series by Garth Nix. One of the most amazing fantasy YA writers (there are many of them of course.. DWJ, to name one randomly) I’m on Drowned Wednesday now.. **eeeeekkkkk!!! Can’t wait to start, I just finished Grim Tuesday this afternoon in the bus on the way to Kino. Okay.

On a side note, I saw this beautiful cookbook:



Enough saidshown. I don’t think I could buy it today.. That would be very wrong, but so right! But oh well. I hate when my conscience starts speaking to me.

Good nights! (Hope everyone had a wunnerful holiday/ day off today!)

I’ve more to show & tell sigh. But I’m not that disciplined anymore. Ah. I will though.. Soon.
