What's on my face #1 Shining like the sun

Sawasdee ka~
Since the sun starting to say hello to UK weather I got a feeling that I should wear something a little bit brighter. No not my cloth today but lipstick. Statement lipstick is my fav! One of my all time favourite BB creams is Smooth Erase acne care medicated (It's only sell in Japan). I selected this BB cream today because my skin is pretty delicate at the moment. And as I have very oily skin I have to powder my face up with Nars loose powder. I also highlight/contour my face with Topshop highlighter and Nars bronzing powder in "Laguna". For my eyes I hardly do anything I just curl my eyelashes and use waterproof mascara from Chanel and draw a tiny eyes liner along lash line. My lips are filled with red lipstick from Beauty UK in shade "Vampire".
Ohhh~And one more thing I would like to show you guys is my new horsey earrings! Welcome to Chinese horse year :). I actually bought them at night market it Thailand. If convert Thai baht to british pound they are just 50p!
Nars bronzing powder "Laugna" // MAC blush "Warm Soul" // Topshop highlighter "Crescent Moon" // Nars loose powder "Eden" //  Smooth erase acne care medicated "02"
Maxfactor colour elixir lip liner "10 Red Rush" // Beauty UK lipstick "Vampire"
Muji eyelash curler (Okay this is not something on my face but I swear by this eyelash curler it's the best so I would like to share it with you guys) // Chanel inimitable mascara waterproof in black // Bodyshop tea tree concealer "02" for under eye dark circles // No7 Stay precise felt tip eyeliner "Brown/Black" // No7 beautiful brows pencil "Brown/Black"

What do you think about this look?

Duty free make up and skincare purchase

Sawasdee ka~
Last month I went back to Thailand and also have a chance to travel to Japan  for a week and that means...Duty free shopping spree :) Somehow I managed to buy significantly more than I thought I would (dahhh...typical me lol)
So the first thing I bought from London Heathrow (yep I know I hadn't even out of UK yet but I got one thing in my bag already). I had been wanting this Marc Jacobs Honey perfume for ages.
The set includes: Honeywell perfume (100ml) and Honey Body Lotion (150ml). From what I can remember this set is about £57 (please correct me if it's wrong) in Debenhams. So when I saw £43.05 price tag on this box set I just can't ignore it but put in my shopping basket straight away. It smells really fresh and pleasant.

Few days after I arrive Thailand, my sisters and I went to duty free shopping mall called "King Power".  We spent half day wandering in there and bought few items. First item I bought there is a moisturizer box set from GoodSkin Labs. This box set contains duo pack of eye cream and anti aging face cream. My sister told me that the face cream one is very good so I decided to give it a try.
Next things I didn't buy but they are free gifts from Origin
- 15 ml Plantscription anti aging cream
- 15 ml Plantscription anti aging serum
- 15 ml Make a difference plus+ rejuvenating treatment fortified. It will help add moisture to dry, dehydrated skin.

I have never tried any of these products yet so I can't give any comment on them. But as I always love Origin skincare range these are pretty good gifts for me when I travel.
Next purchase is Laneige water sleeping pack. It's a leave on overnight mask. I heard many good reviews about it so it's another product to give it a try. This sleeping pack comes with tiny plastic spatula for application. It's light gel-type texture provides intensive hydration, vitality, and brightening effect while restoring skin with deep relaxation. It claims that it helps to keep your skin look more crystal clear and vitalized.
I've used it about 3 times now but still not really sure whether I should like it?! I do find it's moisturized my skin over night and make I face feel softer in the morning but sometimes I get tiny breakouts/bumps on my skin. Maybe it's not from the product itself but who know?  I promise I will give you a full review when I use it long enough :)
Next, my sister bought MAC stroke of midnight gold eye bag set which including paint pot, fluidline intense black with gold pearl, mascara, 209 eye Liner/239 eye shader double-ended brush and small make up bag. Actually she only wanted the paint pot and eyeliner pot so she gave me the rest of the bag. Lucky me~
Last piece I got from King Power is Burberry lipstick in Devon sunset. It's a orangy coral colour. This is my second lipstick from Burberry. The colour pay off really well and I like the way how it's moisturize my lip.

If you have a chance to go Thailand and want to shop in duty free shopping mall I need to mention that collection of the duty free items must be made inside the airport.
And my last purchase I made before I come back to UK is this gorgeous mini brushes set from Bobbi brown. Inside the gold square case, there are mini 4 brushes. As I'm travelling a lots each year, this set is definitely useful for me.

So there you have it, my beauty buys while I was in holidays! Yep, I know I'm a shopaholic girl.

Do you buy a lot of beauty products when you go overseas? Do you have any funny duty free stories? Comment below!

Hello it's Valentine Series #5 : Mini review on Lush Valentine's day collection

Sawasdee ka~

Happy Valentine's day to all lovely followers and all strangers :) For my last but not least post of the Vday series I decided to do a mini review on Lush Valentine's collection. There are few valentine products that Lush released at the end of last month. Today I will review 2 of the products in this collection. I hope you guys enjoy all the posts in this series. And I'm sure I will make next one very soon!!

Truth be told I'm not actually doing anything special today. I just went to Yo sushi in the afternoon and had lunch with my boyfriend. Actually I think everyday is valentine's day for us anyway and we always surprise each other in odd day so to be honest today is just an ordinary day for me. The picture above actually have nothing related to the topic today but I just want to show you guys my new keychains that I bought a while ago from night market in Taiwan but just realised that I have never used them. So on last Monday I gave one to my boyfriend and another one keep for myself. They are adorable ^__^

Anyway, as my boyfriend will be at work until 4am tomorrow so I will have to spend the night alone. I picked up 2 Lush products I bought earlier this week and used it tonight.
Close to you massage bar (left) and Love locket bath ballistic (right)
"The Love Locket was inspired by the kind of heart-shaped locket you wear as a necklace, perhaps with a secret photograph of a loved one inside. In the same way, you have to unlock (crack open) this Love Locket bath bomb to reveal the secrets hidden within…"

For the first product : Love locket. 80% of the reason I bought it was a giant heart shaped love locket, that rattles when you shake and the rest goes to its scent. This bath bomb looks really pretty with a scent of sweet floral. On the website it say that if you break in to half you will see a smaller heart bath bomb hidden inside, that's filled with small heart paper confetti. For a lazy girl like me I just throw a whole locket into my bath so I'm not sure whether mine one has a hidden heart bath bomb or not?!. As you can see in the picture it's a huge bath bomb comparing with my hand so for someone that doesn't like to spend 6.95£ in one bath you can break it and use up to 3 times. For me I'm glad that I use a whole thing in my opinion the scent is pretty weak compare to other Lush bath bombs.
Once it hits the water, the shimmer quickly disperses and reveal small heart pink and white paper confetti. It actually fizzed away really quick and turned my bath water a nice shimmering romantic pink water. 
As I want to enjoy my time in bath and want to spend time in there longer than normal I also added a tiny bit of the comforter (a bubble bar) to make a blanket of fruity foam and put this 2 duckies in there with me.
Back to the review, at the centre of the bath bomb were lots of small heart pink and white paper confetti and shiny red hearts made from agar which floated at the surface of the water. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to enjoy these shiny red hearts they melted too quick. Although it claims that both will dissolve entirely, but after I drained water I do notice that there are some pink and white heart paper left in a bath which is pretty disappointed. In term of benefits to my skin after this bath I can't really give any comment because I mix this bath bomb with other product...Sorry

Overall, I like the idea of hearts that made from agar but the whole thing is pretty pricey. If next year Lush make this Locket heart again I probably will not repurchase it. It is a
 miss for me I'm afraid...

Right going to the next review : Close to you massage bar. This massage bar remind me of Snow fairy from last Christmas. The scent is pretty similar with a hint of vanilla sweet but subtle...hummm yummy.
The best think is that the smell stay for hours so it's kind of like having moisturiser and solid perfume in the same time. It melts instantly as soon as it contact with my skin which makes it a perfect massage bar! In another meaning you have to keep it in cool and dry container which is not a problem to me. I have a lots of empty plastic and aluminium boxes.

For the first few second I glided it over my skin, it just like putting dry oil but after that it will slowly absorb to the skin and leave my skin feeling baby soft

If you are a Snow fairy fan, then I would definitely recommend getting this while it last. I definitely repurchase it :)

RRP: Love locket £6.95, Close to you £5.50
Have you tried any of Lush valentine's day collection? What do you think?

Hello it's Valentine Series #4 : Sweet or Sassy

Sawasdee ka~
This is the first time I decided to show you guy my fashion styles and outfits. Hope you like it and give me some feedback :)

It's just few days to go before Valentine's day. So today I have 2 different styles to pick and choose for this February 14

For the first Vday outfit, I'm going for a sassy look. I mix and match with red and black colour. I choose black because this colour can make you look sassy, sexy and mystery in the same time. I made a messy bun to show off the moustache earring. It's really unique and sophisticate in the same time. The black top it plain at the front but look at the back...a huge bow to make this look more attractive. With my red lipstick and skirt, you can never go wrong with red things on Vday,right?

Top : ASOS
Skirt : American Apparel
Watch, earring, ring and bag : I actually bought them from Thai street stores (not sure whether you can find any of them in UK)
Shoes : My sister give to me because they are too big and too high for her. She said they are made to order shoes.
My next outfit is totally different from the first one. This one I'm going for a sweet girly look. I pick a pink purplish dress and combine with a flower headband. My curly hair make this look cuter and more feminine. As I'm a petite girl high heels or wedges are essential on a date.

Dress, headband, rings and shoes : I got them from Thai street stores.
Watch : CK
Bag : Louis Vuitton

What are you going to wear this Vday? Let me know in the comment. You can even put a link below I'm sure I will check it out.

Hello it's Valentine Series #3 : DIY Card

Sawasdee ka~

My third post on "Hello it's Valentine Series" will be about DIY Card. This year card I got an inspiration from flowers and I combined with heart shape...thing you can't ignore on Valentine's day. I tried to make it simple but unique and tah-dahhhh, this is what my card look like :)

What you will need:
❤ Compasses                                                           
❤ Pen and Pencils                                                    
❤ Scissors                                                                
❤ Exacto knife                                                         
❤ 6 mini craft brads
❤ Double-sided tape or glue
❤ Paper cutting board
❤ Coloured papers

How to make it
1. Use compasses to draw a circle shape at the back of gold glitter paper (around 6" in diameter) 
2. Use an exacto knife, cut out the circle shape you draw. I don't use scissors to cut this one because the paper is quite thick and I think the knife make a sharper edge

 3.  Use the sharp end of compasses to pierce 6 holes around the edge of glitter paper. You can also use paper piercer 

4. Cut out 2 heart sizes that are about 3" and 2" tall. Use them as templates to cut out 12 additional hearts. 6 with with thick paper and another 6 with red thick paper

5. Pierce a hole above the bottom edge of heart shape paper.

 6. Put craft brads through a hole and hold them together with circle gold glitter paper. Then split the legs of craft brad at the back of glitter paper
7. Repeat it until you have 6 hearts on the card

8. Write down "Valentine" in a bold font on white paper, cut and then glue them in the middle of glitter paper
9. Write down secret letters or message on each of white heart. I also add my cheeky lip stamp on one of the hearts

10. Cut out another round circle (same size as gold glitter one) then stick it with glue or double-sided tape at the back of gold glitter paper to hide the mess. Then you can write down your message to your loved one :)

Hope you like my card idea. 
Do you guys make your own Valentine card this year? Please share the idea
