Fauchon Mini Crepes

My favorite cheese snack and a pricey one at that from Fauchon. It tastes like real cheese and herbs wrapped in a thin, flaky pastry. And there are a variety of cheeses to choose from, today's offering is Goat Cheese...yums!

Roberto Cavalli Spring/Summer 2014

My absolute favorite collection this season! Presenting the urban tribe in silver to white and every grey shade in between. Brilliant tribal patterns and subtle animal prints make the clothes look soo pretty.

Just Cavalli this season is all multi-coloured botanical prints and gingham. Even mashed together like a quilt. The pieces are soo fresh & fun, nobody really cares if its too loud.

What to do with Hermes Scarves

One of first convertible pieces in a wardrobe is the scarf and Hermes is famous for it's gorgeous silk scarves, it has even published a downloadable book on the different ways to wear it.

You can wear it as tops. A little skimpy at the back for my liking.

Headgear for hot summer days.

Neck scarf for windy autumn days.

 As a bag (Furoshiki). For the price of a scarf, you too can own an authentic Hermes bag.

 And many more!

Lancome Blush Subtil Palette

Lancome launched this Blush Subtil palette in 2012, you can choose between sculpting & illuminating (this one here) or blush & glow (pinker). Each palette comes in 5 different shades for every skin colour. $76 each.

This palette I have is a cross between bronzer and outright blush. It's great for everyday wear to get that neutral yet urban look. Once again, you need to use all 3 colours on the cheekbones to get the intended end effect, shading to create contours soo 80s but you just have to master it.

Long John Silver's

Long John Silvers is the only place that has those crispy bits (not fries) they should give it a name. I adored the fish & chips here as a kid and still eat it whenever I get the chance to. There is a rice menu that I haven't tried yet but everyone else has and they seem to like it.

K. Harrodson Cookies

I received these cookies in a hamper and can't shake that taste. It's like pound cake in a cookie, filled with dried fruit that I love. Can anyone tell me where to get these in Singapore on any regular day?

Chanel Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion

Chanel too is experiencing an explosion of rainbow colours. Tweed jackets are all sleeveless this season.

But, its really all about bags. This season Chanel sends out watercolour rainbows, distressed backpacks, 2-tone clutches and my favorite of the season - patchwork bags for some small town charm. Chanel is also stocking what it calls the Boy bag in candy colours.

Chanel Haute Couture S/S 2014. So young & sassy.

Chanel Resort 2014 is comparatively more formal with collars & lapels in a neutral palette.

Pokka Milk Tea

A real afternoon treat for me these days is Pokka premium milk tea that is Teh-C in a bottle, drunk cold just the way I like it, especially when the weather is soo warm in Singapore. Brewed from amazingly fragrant tea leaves, I wonder where I can buy this in bulk with free delivery for my personal stash.

Prada Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion

Prada exudes youth this season in a fun & eccentric collection of sporty clothes. There are cartoon portraits of women and combinations of different embroidered fabrics, primary colours tie everything in together.

There are things I do like, these sporty dresses blinged up with crystals. And the printed fur coats do look very haute, recognizable though.

Prada Menswear this season is also young and irreverant but the colours are toned down.

Check out these tropical prints, reminds me of Malaysia tourist shirts of old.

Noir G de Guerlain Exceptional Complete Mascara

Noir G de Guerlain can do it all, thickening-lengthening-curling and even rejuvenating to help your natural lashes grow longer & fuller. Only drawback, it's not waterproof for easy removal. On the first coating, the intense black is visible, second layer the lengthening is seen, by the third coating the lashes start to curl on its own. Soo convenient not to have to use a lash brush or crimper. I would like to have fullness as well, the rejuvenating part comes in here as it stimulates lash hair growth & fortification that is my fave part about this product.

I received a sample size so it doesn't have the jewelry case container with mirror and refillable section. The first refillable mascara in the market. $75 for retail-size, $40 for refill.

Sakae Sushi

Sakae Sushi lunch with colleagues. Sakura Fizzy drink and lots of mentai sushi. That fried oyster mentai sushi was amazing!

Such a nice alternative to the homemade sushi & yoghurt I have been eating.
