Skincare Sunday

It had been a while since I graced my local Sephora with my presence so I popped it to pick up a few new skincare bits yesterday. I needed an evening moisturiser and cleanser. Here’s what I ended up getting: Fresh Soy Face Cleanser 50ml 600THB Fresh isn’t a brand I’ve tried before although it…

Clinique Pep-Start

I received a little pink tube of Clinique Pep-Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser as a sample the last time I was in Sephora and having dabbled with Clinique products in the past (make mental note to add Dramatically Different Moisturiser to the list for next time I’m passing through Duty Free) I was more than happy…

Zoeva Luxury Set Vol. 1

How stunning are these Zoeva brushes? I have heard so much about Zoeva but other than ordering online it’s not a brand I have seen in Bangkok so when I stumbled across their counter in Sephora in Singapore to say I was a little excited is an understatement. I knew I had to try something…

Review ~ Sephora Pro Brushes

I have been needing to add some brushes to my stash for a while but a few things had been delaying my purchase. Firstly, I haven’t been able to find a wide variety of decent brushes here in Bangkok, we have MAC and Sephora but that is about it. Granted I could buy online but…

The Birthday Philosophy.

Some would describe my husband as brave maybe even foolish. I would say he knows me well, when, for my birthday last month he presented me with a goody box of beauty products from Sephora, primarily philosophy, the main event being their anti-ageing ‘Time in a Bottle‘. Since turning 30 last year I have definitely…

Review ~ Living Proof 5-in-1

I have stupidly thick, coarse long hair which has always been relatively tame-able with frequent trips to the hairdresser and lots of rich serums and balms. Tame-able that was until rainy season arrived in Bangkok. My usually ok hair turned into a larger than life, frizz ball mess that had the texture of straw and the…

Restock ~ Bronzer

I never used to wear bronzer, then I became slightly addicted to Tanya Burr a few years ago (before she became a tween idol) and was converted. My bronzer of choice is Nars Laguna Bronzer; a favourite of bloggers, makeup artists and beauty addicts alike. It’s a bronze brown shade that seems to suit most people,…

Eyeko & Urban Decay

Since moving to Thailand my makeup regime has become much quicker. My reasons being that it’s so hot it runs off plus when I have a tan I never think I need as much! I am someone who very much enjoys doing my makeup and can happily spend an hour blending and buffing but now my daily routine is…

The Weekend in Pictures.

Rather than me jabber on about what we’ve been up to the past few days, today I thought I’d let the pictures do the talking! Thursday night street food before the rain hit! Friday Leo and Moo Dadio at Red & Whites Friday night sushi and tempura at Emporium, Phrom Phong   Saturday: It’s fascinating…

Friday Night Face & Fun

Last night we went to the Marriott Sky Bar with friends for some ‘sundowner 2-4-1’ cocktails followed by a cheeky burger at Game Over. And as promised, I tried some of my haul products out… I have on the Eyeko Mascara (love love love!), Painterly paint pot under some Naked 2 eyeshadow, blended with my…

Oops…Sephora & MAC

Yesterday, I took myself to the shops! You can read about that adventure here, but today I thought I’d fill you in on my purchases. As I’ve mentioned previously, I was delighted when I found out that Bangkok had a number of Sephora stores. I discovered Sephora 10 years ago in Paris on a Uni…

Confident Thursday

Today, from somewhere, I suddenly had the confidence to take myself into town. We live at the end of the BTS line in the south of Bangkok so I got a motorbike taxi (I’m still thanking God when I get off in one piece) to Bearing station which is about a 5 minute ride away…
