Betty-Lou Manizer by theBalm Cosmetics - Review | Photos | Swatches | Demo

I want to share with you all one of my most favourite and adored bronzing powders, Betty-Lou Manizer from theBalm Cosmetics. I've been obsessed with this bronzer since the day I got my hands on it, the texture and pigmentation are just to die for! I love it even more because of the one of a kind packaging design that theBalm Cosmetics is known for. They always make everything extra more beautiful which keeps us lusting over their products!

My first impression of this bronzer, is literally WOW. It's so beautifully pigmented with the right balance of shimmer and colour gradient. I'm not a fan of glittered bronzers but Betty-Lou Manizer is definitely an exception. It gives out a gorgeous luminous glow that gives out the sun-kissed look on the cheeks. You'll look like you just came from a beach vacation. It's such an amazing bronzer, highlighter, and eyeshadow all in one adorable compact!

"Fake it, don’t bake it! Before you head out to relish some well deserved sun, score a faux, sun-kissed glow with theBalm’s Betty-Lou Manizer. Betty-Lou is a silky smooth, all-in-one bronzing highlighter, shimmer and shadow. Layer this soft, talc-free formula on your lids for a luxe look, or sweep on your cheeks, forehead and chin using our Powder to the People brush for an instant, goddess glow." -- source: www.thebalm.com

The Mary-Lou Manizer gives a gorgeous sun-kissed tone on the cheeks with a hint of gold specks. It's the most radiant bronzer I've ever used so far, and I love that fact that the shimmers are not too overwhelming on my skin complexion. The shade of the bronzer compliments my skin on any angles or corners of my face. It's such a useful bronzer, and it also looks spectacular as an eyeshadow!

Spring Make-up And Nail Art Inspirations 2014

Following my previous post about my favourite fashion inspirations for Spring this year, I'd like to share with you all my Spring make-up and nail art inspirations. I always enjoy adding a lot of colours to my wardrobe and beauty products during Spring to reflect the brighter atmosphere. It also makes everything so much happier!

I don't usually tend to go for bright colours for my make-up looks, but I love to experiment with pastels and wearable colours. They actually look so stunning for smokey eyes or a tropical look. As for the nails, there are tons of beautiful colours to choose from to signify the Spring season, the colours are limitless! I love floral design for the nail arts, especially anything with a beach or garden theme.

Fashion Inspiration For Spring 2014

It's Spring season in the Northern Hemisphere right now and it's such a wonderful time for fashion. Spring is one of my most favourite seasons because it brings out so many colours in the fashion world. I just love all the pastel colours, florals, lace, and anything that make the Spring season so much brighter. It's the perfect time to rock colour blocking and add a touch of colour to your outfits!

Here are some of my fashion inspiration for the season of Spring. My style is mostly mixed with feminine street style for every day looks, and some sophisticated high fashion for formal looks. My favourite styles right now are the kimono cardigan and cut out dresses/tops, I think they look beautifully chic! Of course, I can't leave out my favourite for all seasons, the florals and pastels. 

Don't be afraid to add a little bit of colour to your outfit this Spring! :)

Tip Siam Restaurant at North Shore City

On my ventures to try more Thai restaurants, I found this fantastic Thai place at North Shore City called Tip Siam Restaurant. It's quite a drive from my house to North Shore City, but it was all worth it! Tip Siam is an impressive fine dining Thai restaurant in Takapuna, Auckland's North Shore City. It is the one place where you can experience the distinctive and authentic Thai arts in every detail. Stemming from the restaurant decoration to the creation of the menu, the food design and the taste.

The food, presented by their experienced chef, is an interesting combination of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy dishes all prepared with a skill that will never let you down. Ped Tip Siam, Choo Chee Scallop, Pla Tom Yum Ta Klai Krop and Gai Tod Tip Siam are their four recommended dishes amongst our other proudly presented ones. Visit Tip Siam Thai Restaurant and let them spoil you with their food, arts, and service.

They gave special attention to four dishes. Ped Tip Siam, a delighting dish combined with a great variety of taste. It consists of finely sliced roasted duck with aromatic herbs, topped with Tip Siam's unique sweet chilli sauce, as well as pineapple, grape, cashew nuts and coriander, all served on a sizzling hot plate. Choo Chee Scallop, is fresh scallops and ground peanuts which are cooked in a red curry paste, coconut milk and served with broccoli. It is a must for curry lovers. Pla Tom Yum Ta Klai Krop exclusively presents the Thai's famous Tom Yum dish in a special way. It comes with a whole deep fried snapper, topped with deep fried crunchy coriander served separately with Tom Yum soup in order to keep the crunchiness of the deep fried fish and sweet chilli. Eating them all together, you will notice how well the combination of flavours marry. And last but not least, Gai Tod Tip Siam, the deep fried chicken breast stir fried with Tip Siam sweet sauce and topped with macadamia nuts is superb. As with the rest of the food in this fine restaurant, there is no way else to describe the food.

Thai Friends Restaurant at Parnell Auckland

One of my most favourite Asian cuisines is Sweet and Sour Pork/Chicken. I'm always on a haunt to find the best Sweet and Sour Pork/Chicken from many different Asian ethnic groups since there are many ways to cook it. My friends and I found this amazing Thai restaurant at Parnell, Auckland called Thai Friends. My first impression of the restaurant when I first walked in is that it has a really cozy ambiance. I love that fact that they have outdoor chairs and tables with a gorgeous view of the Sky City Tower.

The menu contains authentic Thai dishes that many people are familiar with, and they offer reasonable prices for their meals. They also have some exotic dishes that you can only get from their restaurant. The presentation of the food is really beautiful with very meticulous food arts. I was also very impressed with their customer service, the workers their greeted us with such a kind manner and helped us with all the things we needed.

I appreciate all the effort they put into presenting their meals.
