Darkness Eyelash Glue

I've read a lot about the Darkness eyelash glue on various blogs and websites, and I finally manage to get mine. Really elusive brand indeed! I've been searching up and down for it, to no avail. I found it last weekend and was delighted. I only saw the black one, but in what I know there's also the white one.

Hello Kitty Tin Mints

When I was at the mall earlier this week to restock on the groceries, I chanced upon the new Hello Kitty mints. I can't pass on anything Hello Kitty, so I got two of them!

Studs and leather for fall

Image source: ASOS

I have been busy with lots of things these days, but that doesn't stop be from keeping my eye out for fashion. I chanced upon this gillet on ASOS. I already have a leather jacket for biking, and had been on the lookout for a nice leather vest. However, most of the once I came across were either too heavy or too thick and hot. I'd love to wear the vest for both casual days and riding days, so having one that provides good ventilation is crucial. When I saw this online, I knew I had to get it. It was on sale, plus with an additional coupon code, it was definitely a good buy!

My first Lush mask: Brazened Honey

I got my first Lush mask last week and I was pretty excited about it! I do pop by Lush from time to time, but I don't usually get much as most of the stuff are too... fancy for my liking. I'm not a bath person, and I only use the solid shampoo and conditioner when I work out at the gym or go swimming (those are really handy and easy to bring out, and they don't spill- less mess!).

I was so thrilled to see that they had restocked their mask, and after some help from the SA, I picked up the one called Brazened Honey.

Tsumori Chisato Fall 2012 Mook

I had been looking forward to the Tsumori Chisato mook (or magazine-book) to be released in the local bookshop, and I was so thrilled to spot this last week! Given that the brand is highly sought after and considerably rare, I wasn't surprised that there were only two copies of the mook left when I reached the bookshop. I snapped it up immediately and took advantage of the 20% discount. This is definitely one of the best mooks of the year! I was very excited to check out the mook...

Vintage 101- How to wear a vintage chain belt securely

I love wearing belts to spice up my outfit, and of course I can't live without chain belts. However, one of the issues that I face with chain belts is that I'm worried about the belts unhooking themselves. Especially when I sit down, the belt may accidentally be pushed around and the hook can come off. I can't bear to lose my belts, especially the vintage ones that are hard to come by. Hence, I devised a solution for the problem! It helps to secure the belt to prevent it from dropping off, and also keeps the belt from moving around so that the buckle will remain in the correct position.

Brave: a movie review

The movie Brave opens in cinemas today, but I had the chance to catch the premiere of it two weeks back. Thanks to Nuffnang for organizing the event! I watched the movie in Real 3D. It was a fantastic movie, and definitely lived up to my expectations.

H&M rose gold and yellow gold spike hair tie- DIY inspiration?

Another exciting hair accessory that I picked up at H&M earlier in the week! I found this spiky hair tie with rose gold and yellow gold beads and spikes hanging all over it. It's quite a nice funky twist, and slightly different from a hair cuff, but I really love the look hence I picked it up.

arm candy galore- my growing collection of DIY goodies

Me and my ever-growing collection of arm candies! I've taken up a new pastime to make bracelets of various colors, materials and  designs when I am free. I absolutely love matching my bracelets with the current day's outfit, so having a wide variety offers fun combinations and options. And what will be better than wearing my own artwork!

H&M hair cuff galore!

Updated: Pink hair cuffs spotted here!

I popped by H&M when I was in town the other day, and oh golly, there were so many hair cuffs available! Remember the leopard-print one that I had featured in my previous DIY inspiration post here? Apparently there are more different patterns on top of leopard print! I was so thrilled to find the designs and was very tempted to get all of them. But after much contemplation, I only got one.
