PHOTOLOG: Featured on PRIMPED, lotsa F00DP0RN & Outfits of the Day

I think I can now proclaim April as my favourite month with the public holidays we have. :) 
Have a smile now if you're as excited as I am to have another 4 day week thanks to Anzac Day on Wednesday. The thought of having midweek off makes Monday slightly better. 
Tuesday feels like Friday and its effing ah-ma-zing!! 

Like most of every other Mondays, this is a photolog post to have a quick recap of any interesting events from the past 2 weeks. :)

ThroughBeautyEyes was featured on Primped last Friday along with Miss ChewHair Romance and Swatch Girl! Thanks Primped for the special shout out. :)

NOTW - LAYLA Magneffect Nail Polish
Magnetic Nail Polish seems to find its way to the top spot of current nail trends, after knocking crackle nails off the list. 

Took me 2 goes before getting the effect I want - a tad troublesome and effort for a lazy sh!t like me but am definitely lovin' the magnetic effect! 

Sunday Lunch @ Bills, Surry Hills. 
Sweet corn fritters with grilled tomatoes, spinach, bacon and extra haloumi on the side. 

It was as delicious as it looks, however I felt a tad sick after 2 pieces of deep fried fritters. I was probably still suffering from some pork hangover from the night before (you will get what I mean shortly =P).

Sunday dessert sesh with the girls @ Le Renaissance, The Rocks
BEST dessert place EVER in my humble opinion. The lime tart (bottom right in pic above) is still my absolute favourite and they make awesome coffee too! 

For you macarons lovers out there, their macarons are committable to Adriano Zumbo, if not better! It comes in Jasmine Green Tea flavour too, which is extra macaron points! #punny

My current favourite everyday look and a sneak peek of next upcoming post! :P
 (It looks more done up than it actually is, in fact it's pretty simple effortless!)

Saturday morning face, after a night out!
I LOVE the colour of my hair under the sun! Unfortunately, I might need to go black as I am getting allergic reactions from patch test and it seems almost impossible to touch up my hideous roots which is growing like there's no tomorrow! 

If any of you has sensitive skin and is aware of any organic, vegan brand that might not give rise to any sort of allergic reaction, please do share. I will ruv you forever! :)

Roast Duck Noodle Soup @ Hong Kong Noodle House, Burwood
 EPIC post night out food, nuff said.

The bestie and I.
So, the bestie (Miss Wendy & Co) and I managed to finally have some #boobtime D&M catching up sesh and random #sneakytime on Saturday night.

#SaturdayNight @ Lowenbrau, The Rocks
 Remember the statement I made above about pork hangover earlier? I reckon the massive pork knuckles (bottom left in pic above) gives a pretty good explanation, doesn't it?

Yours truly rocking them 3D glasses LOL
This is what accountants do on a Friday arvo when you're so over the week and you're just counting down to wine o'clock.

@ La Bodego, York St. 
 Friday drinks this week was with my Friday buddy Janice, aka Chaigyaru after missing each other for the past couple of weeks. :)

REVLON Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie
 One of the new found loves I recently acquired. :)

Pad Kee Meow @ Thairiffic, Westfield Foodcourt
 After all the rich and unhealthy shit I consumed in the past 2 weeks, I shall attempt to #eatclean this week. Even hardcore gyming isn't sufficient to keep my guts in place. =.="

Casual Sunday OOTD 

Singlet - Forever 21/ Shorts - Nichi, Malaysia/ Sandals - Sports Girl/ Studded bag - Dotti

As you can tell, nothing really exciting besides food and Friday nights and more food! After collating all the required photos for today's post, I realised that I have been having alot of heart-attack-on-a-plate I  in the past 2 weeks that even my intensive gym sessions wouldn't be able to save my ass. =.="

That being said, I shall try to #eatclean and be healthier this week. Lets hope my next photolog post is healthier than this. :P

Hope you lovelies had a great start to the week.
It's freakin' awesome when your Monday feels like the Eve! Whoop whoop!

FOTD & TIPS: The Glasses Make Up ft Jane Iredale Lips Fixation in Passion

Had a long and epic weekend and find it a little hard to put on your contact lenses on a Monday morning? Remember, just because you need to rock those glasses on a Monday, doesn't mean you have to look any less gorgeous than any other day. :)

There's always the glasses make up look! Can't make your eyes pop? Go for a bold, bright lips!

Here's my take on the glasses make up look and some tips for you: 

Simple eye-make up but enough to pop behind those frames and bright, chilli red lips.

 My favourite Ray Bans :)

Neutral lid - champagne coloured lids and a hint of dark olive outer corner for some dimension.

 A slight twist from my usuals - double-winged liner with bright silver liner in between

On my EYES
Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study
NVEY ECO Eyeshadow Palette
Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner in Black
Shu Uemura Shimmer Eyeliner in Commet Silver
Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil in Black
Kiss Me Heroine Volume & Curl Mascara
 Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Hazelnut

On my FACE
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in Soft Beige (foundation)
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Make Up
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in Ivory (as highlighter)
Flomar Terracotta Blush On
Hello Kitty Compact Powder in Pashmina Amber (as bronzer)
Australis Ready Set Go Finishing Powder

Jane Iredale Lips Fixation in Passion
On my LIPS

(a GORGEOUS lip stain with great pigmentation)

 The completed look without glasses. 

Can't leave the house without your Ray Bans or Dior glasses today? 

Just a few simple tips to keep in mind:

- Neutral eyes
- Double-winged liner with bright silver liner in between
- Cool-toned/ subtle baby pink cheeks
- Bright chilli-red lips

AND, you're good to go!!!

Do you wear make up when you wear glasses?
Let me know your fav glasses make up look! 
Is the framed glasses + bright chilli-red lips your cup of tea?

PHOTOLOG: Easter Long Weekend


Gotta love a 4-day week, it's already midweek. That only means we are another day closer to the Eve and Friday!! Whoop Whoop! :)

Further to my Part 1 of this week's PhotoLog HERE, this post is just a quick update on my Easter Long Weekend:

I gotta admit, despite the occasional crazy wind, the weather has been pretty good to us Sydney-siders as of late. This is probably the first Good Friday in a while which had the sun shining bright at us instead of drizzling all day. 

Good Friday was spent with the bestie, Miss WendyAndCo after a night filled with CC Drys, Plum Wine & I-Can't-Keep-Track-Of-The-Rest-Of-My-Drinks and we managed to squeeze Titanic 3D into the schedule with some KFC Wicked Wings Snack Box!

Needless to say, this classic movie left Wendy and I tearing by the end of the show. No longer the naive little girls we are, apart from the cliche yet unrealistic love story (which is still heart wrenching BTW), we focus on the tragedy itself and that gave us a whole new perspective in life. 

The 3D effect was rather subtle - except for the part when Titanic sunk within minutes but I would still recommend it to those of you whom have yet to watch this in ages. Please watch at your own risk as this movie has left quite an impact on Wendy and I, with us feeling sad a day after. #truestory

Wendy from WendyAndCo, Shan from FoodIsOurReligion, Alice and Yours Truly 

After a day of recovering, it's roadtrip with the girls down to the Coast, stopping by Wollongong, ShellHarbour & Kiama! 

God bless Mother Nature for another lovely sunny day albeit the wind was pretty crazy at times - the weather was still perfecto for a day trip! 

Yours truly @ Wollongong Beach.
JetStar Inspired Ad @ The Lighthouse, Wollongong :)
The girls riding a big black cannon right in front of the lighthouse. Go figure LOL

I promise I am innocent. :P 

Vintage Coronets Car Expo along the beach - need I say more about such amazing combination? :D

@BlowHole, Kiama
Hot & Sour Hand Made Noodle Soup with extra chilli @Sea Bay Noodle House, Burwood
What's the best way to end a good day out (and to kill the annoying nose block!) other than a good bowl of hot and spicy soup?

And, green tea frozen yogurt as dessert! Yums yums in my tums tums! :D

 Another sunny day in Sydney after a gloomy Easter Sunday (in which I stayed at home and laze in bed like a sloth)! My outfit of the day for a coffee with the gorgeous Lilit and Jenny

Lovin the denim shorts & loose, flowy shirt (chiffon material) combo!

Guess who finally gave in and came home with this baby? <3 

All proceeds from the sales of Viva Glam Range go towards the research for HIV - so it is for good cause and this is probably the only time I will purchase full price items from MAC Australia. 

I can foresee this lippie is going to be competing so hard with my current fav - MAC Watch Me Shimmer :P

@Kobow Restaurant
Complimentary Korean entree´ for early din din - they did not have my fav honey potatoes!

Korean BBQ Beef Brisket, Hot tofu soup (I could SO do with some of this right now!) and seafood pancake! NOMS!

Just in case you can't already tell, green tea frozen yogurt is my weakness!

Personally, I prefer Moochi over Noggi as their frozen yogurt is more authentic (ie, sour and less sweet). Even their mochi is not as sweet as Noggi. Either way, they are both yummy and me ruvs! 

Circle lenses, mad ass mascara and instagram filter for lighter hair makes me look different, no? I'd like to call it #gyaruinspired if I may say so myself.

I would love to go this light with my hair if it wasn't for my crazily sensitive scalp! Argh, decisions, decisions. 

Just started using Australis VoluptuLash Mascara over the Long Weekend and can you tell I am absolutely lovin it already!!!! Look at how mad those lashes look and yes, they are my natural lashes. Probably one of the best mascara I have tried thus far - and the best thing is they are easy on the wallet too! *cheers* 

(Full review to come soon :D)

Circle lenses as reviewed HERE

That pretty much sums up my simple but relaxing and amazing (simply because its a 4 day weekend!) #LongWeekend. Sucks having to be back at work but I will try to be positive and less cranky this week! #POSITIVITY peeps! 

I suppose you guys are probably starting to get bored of my continuous photolog updates - proper beauty related updates resume in the next post! :D

How was your Easter Long Weekend?
Got up to anything interesting or mischief? :P
