I honestly cannot believe there was a time when I didn’t use primer before applying my makeup, especially on my eyes. I couldn’t fathom how something “invisible” could be deemed so important. But that’s just it. The key word here is “invisible”. That’s exactly how primer makes your pores look! After some hesitation, I decided I was finally going to try a primer out so I … Continue reading Product Review: Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
Eating poached eggs are divine. Making them…well not so much. There are just so many things that can go wrong. Either the albumen is still runny after cooking it for ages on low heat (or a few minutes on high heat), the albumen disperses in strings, leaving a bobbing yolk in the water (if the swirl method is used) or, after much frustration, the egg … Continue reading How to Perfect Poached Eggs

This is an adaptation of her waffle recipe. Interestingly, my mom’s encouragement to try out her waffle recipe when I was about 8 years old sparked my interest in baking. Now, 11 years later, after … Continue reading Quick, Easy Pancakes
After a really busy Easter weekend, I can finally get round to this post. Beauty products, especially makeup, only really last a year or just over a year. This is definitely the case with foundation, liquid liners and mascaras. And even if they last longer than this amount of time, it’s not recommended to use these products as expired makeup can cause nasty infections like … Continue reading Easter Haul
I’m honestly so proud of myself right now. When I woke up this morning, I found out that I have 100+ followers on Twitter and WordPress! I’ve been blogging for just over a year now and it’s hard to believe I’ve come so far. To many, it may not seem like a lot of progress in this amount of time but the steady pace at … Continue reading 100 Follower Milestone!
