I'm guilty of sticking to what works and not being adventurous at times.  So when something just spark my creativity, I try to push myself to seize it right away.  That something is the Shu Uemura Vision of Beauty Vol.2: Haute Street Collection.

I was inspired by the Cool x Chic look by Shu Uemura, and I did my own rendition of it.  Everything was done with the Cool x Chic Eye Shadow Palette (easy to use as usual, it's the buildable kinda product) and Dual-Ended Eye Color Pencil (so creamy and opaque, and great as a base colour).

Here are two ways (out of many) you can wear this collection:

This past Summer has been weird.  It's hot, then rainy, then cold, and hot again.  We didn't get as much nice weather as we would like.  Nonetheless, we're now here, first day of Fall, Summer 2015 is officially behind us.

I go to Sherway Gardens a lot.  I like that it's close to downtown, there's a Holt Renfrew, a Sporting Life, a Sephora (like what more do I need lol)... I also like how the mall is natural light filled.  Except for the past year or two when they were under construction.  But finally, part of it is complete!  The North expansion is opening today.  I was able to get a sneak peek of the new wing last night.

It's the big three-o, no, not for me, but for the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipsticks!

This year, L'Oréal Paris celebrates 30 years of colour with French attitude, aka Colour Riche Lipsticks.  From bold vibrant colours to your-lips-but-better nude lips, being one of the widest range of colours of lipsticks in the mass market in a variety of finish, you're almost guaranteed to find a Colour Riche shade (or 10) that suits you.

Here are some, well, 30 (for obvious reasons), examples:

Hey you!

How have you been?

That's great!  I'm quite well, thanks!

As you can probably tell, I’ve been on a blogging hiatus for a few months. The break was a much needed one. Let’s see what has happened to my life during that time…

#1 We became homeowners!

It’s quite an exciting step in my life. We’ve been looking to purchase our own property for almost 2 years now. At first, we would look at listings, new developments, and open houses. For a long time, we just haven’t seen anything that we like and fit our budget. Then, we decided to go with a realtor. Unless you’re a real estate pro, which we were not, working with a realtor is completely necessary, especially when it’s our first property. They offer their insights, their market knowledge, and even some random recommendations (e.g. what filter you should use for the ventilation system in your condo). Even then, it took us a good half a year just to find a right listing in a desirable neighbourhood. It was quite an experience. We have moved now but we’re still in the middle of unpacking (I got way so much sh** x0x) and we’re still planning to renovate in the Fall. Can’t wait for everything to be done done.
