• Where to Stay in Wadi Rum for the Best Martian Experience.

    If an epic, once-in-a-lifetime, and entirely unforgettable Martian experience is what you’re after, look no further than Wadi Rum in Jordan. Picture this: you are blanketed by the vast expanse of the night sky as far as the eye can see with massive rock formations around you, creating a natural “cave”, carved by nature – mostly wind as Jordan is… Read the Post

  • Mad Monkey Hostel | The All-Inclusive Backpackers Hostel.

    I get very excited when coming to a country / city with tons of good hostel options – some places do it better than others, and I’m always on the lookout to save a bit of money for street food! Whilst researching for my upcoming trip to Cambodia, the same name kept coming up over and over again – Mad… Read the Post

    Joining the range of sunscreems from Shiseido is the new Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Proctector ($40, available here) which is meant to protect the skin from pollution and aggressors while protecting the skin.

  • Maison557 | Siem Reap’s Hidden Luxurious Paradise on a Budget

    The very promise of staying at an ethically-run and gorgeous green oasis in Siem Reap was all I needed to pick Maison557 as my base for the 3 days I was spending to explore the world-famous UNESCO site, Angkor Wat. Located a few minutes away from the main market and ease of access to the temple, I was very keen… Read the Post

  • 5 High-End Beauty Products Worth Stocking Up On.

    It’s not everyday where I would be hawking why you should stock up on high-end beauty goodies because these things cost a lot of money and more likely than not, there are some more budget-friendly alternatives available. That said, here are a few of my trusted and beloved high-end goodies I’ve been repurchasing over and over again. Where it makes… Read the Post

    5 High-End Beauty Products Worth Stocking Up On.

Must Have from MAC | 5 Things to Get.

I didn’t get into MAC Cosmetics until university – there’s just something so intimidating about their free-standing stores. Those impeccably dressed makeup artists, endless variety of colours and finishes, and the women who walk in there seem to know exactly what they were looking for – you know the feeling. Of course, that was a couple of years ago –…

There are those days, an interview, a gala/formal event, a wedding where you are the bridesmaid or just another very important day, when you know you cannot screw things up. The last thing you want to be worrying about on those days would your makeup. But of course, those days tend to be when disasters strike. Running out of your…

The Duty Free Shopping.

Before I had even set foot on the airplane to start my adventures, I accidentally stepped into the Duty Free shops at Pearson and walked away with one too many products. How I managed to spend so much money even before leaving the country confounds me too. Oops…? I came across these “airport exclusive” sets at the JFK airport in…

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau Fraiche.

There are only a few times that a fragrance will make an appearance on this blog and this is one of them. The reason why I’m a little averse to writing about fragrances is because: 1) you can’t swatch it for your readers, and 2) it smells different on everyone, depending on one’s body chemicals. So when a fragrance makes…

The Nude Air Duo.

Dior foundations have been on my radar lately given how much I’ve been loving the Dior Diorskin Star Foundation. By chance, I came across the new Dior Diorskin Nude Air display at Sephora which features three new products, and get this. Natalie Portman on the display. This woman can sell me anything, and Dior knows it. I decided to give…

Life Lately #3.

I’m very glad to put February behind us – the -30C weather with windchills that take that temp even lower was something I’d much rather not see again in a while. I’m a little saddened that time is passing so quickly, and that we are well into the third month of the year – it makes me feel so old!…
