for those who cannot come up with witty insults

Well you don't expect for me to wear my heart on my sleeve

Some people like moving around, living in homes temporarily calculating it's stock value whether it will increase or decrease in worth, creating luxurious designer homes only to move onto another shortly after and starting from scratch over again.

I prefer to find somewhere I feel comfortable, where I want to settle and spread my roots as deep as the foundations, that is what I call home.

homes are for living.

nothing like a needle in a haystack;

Love, it's a lot like a stereotypes, it's been manipulated and moulded by the media to become this awe of something seen through rose tinted glass:

Love [luhv]
noun, verb, loved, lov·ing.
to have love or affection for: All her pupils love her.
to have a profoundly tender, passionate affection for (another person).
to have a strong liking for; take great pleasure in: to love music.
to need or require; benefit greatly from: Plants love sunlight.
to embrace and kiss (someone), as a lover.
to have sexual intercourse with.

This emotion has no flaws, it's like a drug that everyone's addicted to.... but you're all wrong. You could spend a lifetime searching for this 'love' when it could be staring you in the face without realising. Spend less time searching for what you don't know and begin appreciating what you do.

True love, is flawed.

It's looking past these flaws and accepting someone through not only their best but seeing them at their best whilst they're at their worst; you don't love someone from when you meet them but it develops as you get to know them & becomes deeper the more you go through life with them. I suppose what I'm trying to express is that people should stop being fixated on finding mr/mrs perfect and look more towards mr/mrs right, they may well be the mr/mrs perfect afterall

More home cooking

are you drooling?

Counting my pennies

Sleek Contour Kit - currently loving, I figured I should use contour powder to contour as opposed to Bronzer, this starts off looking muddy when applied to skin but it blends out so well, I've barely used the highlighter as I use the E.L.F one from my concealer stick

Stud earrings from Topshop and Forever 21 x

Gift from my friend who went to France, this little thing is a GEM; aside from being purely amazing by having references to Pantone, but this it a handy hook for your bags:

Naked little elves

Hitting pan on a few of my E.L.F items;
Studio Warm Bronzer
Very similar to my Ping Pong bronzer, however with the option to break up the brick with highlight, and blush options should you wish to. Not for those who don't enjoy too much shimmer; I tend to use this largely for contouring purposes only - see my new haul for new contour kit that's matt! I'll leave you with a fail swatch:

Studio Complexion Perfection
I used this as a finish powder as opposed to a concealing powder as I found it worked better after applying a base / foundation, the colour however didn't work too well and I haven't seen it make a dramatic change to my skin in terms of evening out the colour.

Studio Lip Stain Birthday Suit
A beautiful pale pink colour that's wearable day to day, it is drying on the lips and I don't recommend applying to dry cracking lips, apply after some lip balm, and pat on some gloss after dried; the product will wipe off on swiping motions and does not last a long time, however the colour is amazing - I've already repurchased this one!

Studio Concealer & Highlighter
For the price, by far the best under eye concealer I've used yet in terms of the adapting colour, smooth application and ease of blending, as for the highlighter comparable to Benefit's Highbeam

Brain Vomit Part II

Just something I found through a friend that follows what I said before, powerful words


Dear son...

哪天你看到我日漸老去,身體也漸漸不行, 請耐著性子試著了解我...

The day that you see me old and I am already not, have patience and try to understand me ...

如果我吃的髒兮兮,如果我不會穿衣服……有耐性一點...你記得我曾花多久時間教你這些事嗎?If I get dirty when eating...

if I can not dress… have patience. Remember the hours I spent teaching it to you.


If, when I speak to you, I repeat the same things thousand and one not interrupt me ...listen to me.When you were small, I had to read to you thousand and one times the same story until you get to sleep...


When I do not want to have a shower, neither shame me nor scold me...Remember when I had to chase you with thousand excuses I invented, in order that you wanted to bath...


When you see my ignorance on new technologies…give me the necessary time and not look at me with your mocking smile…I taught you how to do so many things… to eat good, to dress well… to confront life…


When at some moment I lose the memory or the thread of our conversation… let me have the necessary time to remember… and if I cannot do it, do not become nervous… as the most important thing is not my conversation but surely to be with you and to have you listening to me…


If ever I do not want to eat, do not force me. I know well when I need to and when not.

當我的腿不聽使喚…..扶我一把….如同我曾扶著你踏出你人生的第一步….When my tired legs do not allow me walk...… give me your hand… the same way I did when you gave your first steps.


And when someday I say to you that I do not want to live any more… that I want to die… do not get angry… some day you will understand…Try to understand that my age is not lived but survived.


Some day you will discover that, despite my mistakes, I always wanted the best thing for you and that I tried to prepare the way for you..

有一天你會發現,即使我有許多過錯, 我總是盡我所能要給你最好的…

You must not feel sad, angry or impotent for seeing me near you. You must be next to me, try to understand me and to help me as I did it when you started living.


.Help me to walk… help me to end my way with love and patience. I will pay you by a smile and by the immense love I have had always for you.


I love you son…


Your father

Meal For One A Please.

Not only do you read about it in beauty magazines but you also see it on television shows too; easy food for one.

Why do we do this to ourselves? Because there's no reason for making a fuss over cooking for yourself, when cooking for other people there is this motivation to cook well for them to eat well, not only because of your image but for their wellbeing; yet why isn't this projected onto ourselves when cooking for ourselves? It's a one off thing we say, yet day after day, week after week, you're becoming more malnutritioned in the short term it's unnoticable but in the long run it just isn't healthy...

But ordering takeaway is just easy? Wrong. Either way you're waiting for someone else to cook it for you and deliver it to you it'll take the same time just less effort on your own part. Take care of yourselves and eat healthy I guess is the main point I'm trying to pull across.

Koji Vs Shu

The physical tools
(Shu in front, Koji behind) Handles are largely similar
(Shu left, Koji right) Shu's rounder which is better for those with more prominent sockets
(Shu left, Koji right) Koji has a curved rim which would be more ideal for those with rounder rims


Shu Uemera
I apologise my hand's spazzed out; I'll take them again when I have time
Koji definitely gets to almost all my lashes but has a harsher curl, whilst Shu's is softer and more natural looking

Overall I find them both better than the drug store curlers I used to use, as they nip my skin, do bare in mind that these are opinions from my own eye shape, they will differ for everyone; however both curlers are said to be designed to suit most eye shapes x

For comparison purposes both were used on the same eye with Majolica Majorca lash expander mascara
