Back from...

It's been exactly two months since I last posted. I hope you are all very well (if you still remember who the heck I am, lol). During this whole time, I've moved, went to the U.S., have had a new baby niece and all.

I'm sorry to hear that a couple of my fav bloggers have deleted their blogs since, but hope the majority of you guys are still there. Till the next post!


Gone Fishing

Hi ladies, how's your weekend so far? I would like to let you know that I won't be posting anything substantial probably until September (?!). Apologies to the followers in particular. I'll probably log in some time in September and see "Followers: (zero)", lol...

I'm moving next week, and then my flight for Seattle is the week after that. (Just to clear up the confusion: I'm not moving to Seattle, just visiting.) I'll be there for a whole month.

Can I ask though, for those of you who have a mac computer? What's the difference between an iBook and a MacBook? :-P


Back for a While

How's everyone doing? I've been very busy at work so I haven't had the energy to post (I have very little energy for things in general, lol).

June was the longest month in my life, but suddenly half of July is gone! The exact date of my move is still unknown, but it should be within 2 weeks. And Seattle is about 3.5 weeks away. My mom said there are lots of packages waiting for me at home... :-)

Yesterday I finally took some photos before stepping out so here they are.

I applied two coats of Jane Iredale mascara (great stuff), a little Dior pencil liner, Nars Angelika blush and Dior Addict High Shine in 220 New Look Beige.

I noticed that the Jane Iredale liquid foundation gives me a more luminous look. A bit of M.A.C. Nylon eyeshadow in the corner of my eyes, bridge of nose and cupid's bow is even better.

While I'm not really into eye makeup, I do love taking the time and do some highlight on the top of my cheeks (any white pearlescent powder) and just under the jaw line (any light bronzer).

A random note: Illamasqua has announced that they will begin distributing in Sephora in the U.S. starting October of this year. Fabulous!


Strawberry & Cream

This is not exactly a makeup post :-P This month some of my favourite music makers have come out with new albums: Phoenix, "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix"; Paolo Nutini, "Sunny Side Up" and Moby, "Wait for Me". Check them out!

I've been on a diet for a couple of weeks, and am determined to change the way I eat: cutting carbs and meat down to a minimum. Not exactly a meat lover to begin with, cutting meat hasn't made a a real difference, but I'd have fish or chicken once in a while. As to carbs, well, that takes some will power!
To reward myself though, I got the new Haagen-Dazs fruit collection, lol. The ice-cream girl chatted me up in the freezer aisle (yes, you're allowed to laugh) and asked where I was from (why do I still get that question every day?!) so she sold me on the little cups of goodness.

While I wait for the ice-cream to soften up, a friend who came back from a trip in Paris brought me some goodies: a cherry blossom box from L'Occitane and a Make Up For Ever eye shadow I asked for, in shade 111.
This is really how dark the colour is. I'm using this as blush, with the lightest possible application. I think this is a unique colour!The cherry blossom kit has a shower & bath gel, pearl lotion and a solid perfume. The scent is quite candy-like :-P
A few more weeks till a brand new home and Seattle. Courage and faith, Cheryl, courage and faith.


Coming Soon

Hi everybody! Thanks for all the response regarding "hitting pan", lol... I never thought it would be an interesting topic, but turned out it was. I will update again in a few days, and respond to your comments.
