Chorus Supernatural

Your skin has to work with the products that you use, and that's why my skincare routine doesn't change often. However, after trying out these three products from Canadian brand Chorus Supernatural, some of them may actually make it into my routine as a regular product!

Life Lately (Nov '16)

What I've been up to lately:

I went to Allan Gardens for the very first time in Downtown Toronto! It was lovely, almost like a little jungle within the city. It was a nice day off from work and I got to spend it with good company. It also happened to be a friend's birthday on the same day! :)

Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner

It's so troublesome for me to find a good eyeliner. With my oily lids, pencil and gel liners easily smudge or fade on me (if you know any that will not to do that, let me know in the comments below!!). Thus, liquid liners are the ones that I usually purchase, but even still it truly has to be one that can stay on well for the entire day.

Earlier this month I did the $10 makeup challenge (you can read here!) and I didn't have an eyeliner that was within the budget. I made a trip to Walmart and randomly picked up this one: Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner. To my surprise, it's actually REALLY GOOD.

Eye Post # 10: Which Contact Lenses Should I Wear?!

Many people have asked me to help them out in their dilemma regarding contact lenses (CL): which one should they wear? It's important to have a CL fitting done by an optician because they can determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for CL wear based on a physical examination of your eyes. In addition, the optician takes the necessary measurements and tests to determine which CL is right for you, along with information on your lifestyle, job, and hobbies. You can use the information provided in my post as an overview to the different CL types. :)

November Beauty Haul

I need to find a better way to store my makeup stash again. It happens every time whenever I add new products to it.


I took advantage of a recent Sephora sale and my parents' trip to Japan which resulted in a decent beauty haul. I usually purchase one or two items at a time but this time around there's definitely enough to share with you!

Sweet & Easy Apple Crumble Recipe

I must say that I've made this more than once to make sure that this recipe is perfecto to share! :)



As mentioned in a previous post about my must-do's of autumn, making your own apple pie or crumble is such a fun and yummy activity to do with family and friends... especially if you're using apples that you picked from the trees yourself! It's a bit more simple than making a pie from scratch.

Here is the recipe that I use to make some delicious apple crumble!
