Bubble Witch 2 Saga

Bubble Witch 2 is a cartoon version of Bubble Witch 1. The bubbles are softer and bouncier and new scenarios include a free floating mass of bubbles that rotate when hit. I rarely play this game as I enjoy the sound effects of Bubble Witch 1 better. So I am at Level 73 and still playing.

Balenciaga A/W 2014/15

Balenciaga is always futuristic and ultra-modern. This season it features rounded shoulder structures in what looks like T-shirt dresses, casual separates and coats. So very wearable clothes done up for futuristic fashionistas.

I really like those pants with metallic/glossy lines, it's subtle like a couture detail and adds to the whole look.

Vibrant and bright colour pops here and there that injects life into the entire collection. Happy colours for the dreary weather is appealing.

Balenciaga Menswear is again classic for the brand. Dark colours, beautiful fabrics mainly leather done in classic styles. This season we see a more structured, boxy look and I really like the high-collar patterned coat.

Cornell Sandwich Maker

This pure white Cornell Sandwich Maker comes courtesy of Giant and Milo. I had to do a bit of work for this particular contest due to incorrectly printed email address on the promotional signboards. I got the correct email after contacting the whole world, and ended up forwarding the correct information to Giant Supermarkets in case more of their customers complained about it. If they are planning to giveaway 60 sets of this, I am sure a lot of people entered.

Wrap & Roll Vietnamese Restaurant

They were handing out delicious samples at the door, one taste and I was ready to be seated. Vietnamese food is light, refreshing and mostly vegetables. Always a great option in our weather. 

I ordered a lotus root prawn salad and mustard leaf wraps, unusually put together but the flavors are  familiar and oh soo yummy.

Pepper Panic Saga

Pepper Panic Saga is the most visually stunning Facebook game ever! Watch peppers combust and explode as it reaches frenzied levels. Then the little doggie comes out and shakes his bum. I am still playing this game and am at level 100.

Chloe A/W 2014/15

Chloe decides on a baggy, loose fitting style this season. It's relaxed and comfortable in assorted neutrals.

The dresses are flowy and done up in darker botanicals to reflect seasonal colours. I like that it is covered up but still feminine and feels girly.

Buy any Kinder Bueno product and spin the wheel online to win instant prizes. There are umbrellas, earphones, goodie bags... I really wanted those cushions and the most expensive prizes are IPad Minis. Just as well, these earphones are pretty quirky ;)

Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue Perfume

A perfume that smells just like an exquisite floral bouquet. It's made top to bottom with all these flowers like lilac, linden blossom, magnolia, Bulgarian pink violet, jasmine, carnation, iris etc. It's not an overpowering scent, rather lovely & gentle in nature. Light enough to be worn anytime of the day while doing anything in the city, hence it's name I guess. $98 for 75ml.

Pet Rescue Saga

My mom introduced me to this game and it's really fun rescuing pets stuck on top of blocks. Match the coloured blocks to make it disappear and smash glass boxes for keys to unlock padlocks. I am stuck at level 72, waiting for friends to help me unlock new scenes.

Versace Autumn/Winter 2014/2015

Versace's militaria inspired collection this season has lots of smart looking double button down suits. We see big chains (embroidered fabric) and ornate sashes like the Mayor or Miss Universe is coming to town.

What I really like is that lace, fabric intermixing that looks amazing on dresses and remarkable on coats.

JLo was @ Versace Atelier Fashion Show. 

Where the fashion label showed off polished dresses with buckles and fringes, really kinda cowboy western. With separates that had that futuristic round shoulder shape. Totally Space Cowboy.

 But, that black ballgown dress is really something. Two thumbs up for bringing booties back.

Versace Menswear continues on the Space Cowboy theme with horse shoe charms on its suits, bandana print underwear and studded denim jackets. 

 Custom colored motorcycle helmets aside, the loudest piece has to be the jockstrap bejeweled leather pants.

Paul & Joe Compact Powder Foundation

Paul & Joe have the sweetest makeup packaging around. Vintage floral motifs embossed onto frosted glass liquid foundations and nude coloured compacts. The compacts come with space to hold a powder puff & mirror. 

It's been a long time & now I am back to 2-way cakes (compact foundations) that go on wet or dry onto the skin. A truly Japanese innovation. I like to put mine on wet, mixing in sunscreen or moisturizer to create a super creamy, opaque makeup base that provides massive coverage.

Nam Nam (new menu)

Trying out some new bahn mi sandwiches @ Nam Nam noodle bar. Soo obsessed with food truck fusion food that I had to stop by for lemongrass & cream cheese with pickles.

Farm Heroes Saga

This barnyard Facebook game had me hooked until level 99 where I have to purchase a booster to get pass the level. It's a match similar pictures in a row game. With higher levels requiring you to fill up buckets of water and crack eggs.

Vera Wang A/W 2014/15


Vera Wang the name synonymous with atelier bridal designs still knocks out top-end bridal wear season after season. This Fall she sends out an all blush collection of bridal gowns centered around roses. She hopes to translate that first blush into a dress form so girls can wear her gowns like makeup. Her dresses are soo beautiful it shouldn't be limited to just weddings. 

Vera Wang's Fall RTW is all black with tartan prints. Chic, sophisticated and black is always soo versatile.
