recipe post :D

I just have to share this recipe with you! A friend of mine made it, and it was so DELICIOUS! Healthy and light, it really cleanses your palette :) I havent had a chance to make it yet, but the directions look rather easy :)! Hope you guys try and enjoy it! YUM!

Thai Yum Woonsen Talay


Ingredients - about four servings worth

1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced finely (or quartered is fine)
1/4 red onion, sliced finely
1 shallot, sliced finely
1/2 green pepper (capsicum)
1/2 red pepper (capsicum)
1/2 yellow peppers (capsicum)
1 cup prawn, shelled and deveined
1 cup scallops
1 cup squid or calamari, cut into rings
2 packs of mung bean or green bean vermicelli

4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup chopped coriander or cilantro
2 stalks of green onion or ramp, cut finely
2 thai bird chilies or 3 jalepeno peppers (adjust for your preferred spice level)
1 lime, juiced
3 tbsp sugar

4 tbsp fish sauce


1. Soak the mung bean noodle in cold water to soften them up for about 20-30 minutes before you are ready to cook. Boil them, and be careful not to overcook. Remove from water and drain when ready, blanching in cold water to stop the noodles from overcooking.
2. Cook the seafood in batches, and be sure not to overdo them as the seafood tends to become rubbery when overcooked. A general hint is when they lose their translucency and become white (for the scallops and the calamari) and when they turn pink (for the prawn). Set aside.
3. In separate bowl, mix together the ingredients for the dressing, to taste. It should not be overly salty, sweet, sour, or spicy but a good blend of the four.
4. Combine everything gently together in a bowl.
5. Garnish with some more cilantro or mint and a slice of lime.

Revlon Color Stay Pen Liner + NYX

Okay, maybe i'm just being a super noob, but it isnt as nice as i would have expected from reviews from other bloggers!


Trying it out on my hand, the colour is fairly dark, but when i used it on my eyelids it didn't deliver a true black line. Maybe I didn't wait for it to dry up, but i went over it a couple of times and it still didn't produce a nice line as MAC's blacktrack or even blitz&glitz fluid line !

It was very disappointing to say the least, the concept was cute and it wasnt as expensive as buying something a little higher end :(!

Packaging: 4/5 cute slim pen
Price: 2.5/5

Overall rating: 3/5
Maybe it will work for you, but it sure didn't work for me. I know mac has something similar, not in a pen shape though i will look into..or maybe i'll just try their black technakhol liner!

The NYX lipsticks on the other hand were surprisingly nice. I do agree with most reviews that the regular round lipsticks does have a funky taste/ a hair conditioner which is slightly off putting but not horrible. The Black Daimond lipstick has no smell or taste i could detect, both had pretty good application. Didn't crease with my lips but I had it prepped with lip blam!
And the giant eyeshadow stick is nice :D I'm happy with it, cottage cheese haha :)

revlon nude attitude and mac's creme de nude

Ok so i've been taken into the whole nude coloured lips scene and I am sure loving it! I have moderately pigmented lips so its a nice change to have the colour downplayed. I wasn't sure if I could pull the look off tho, so I decided to try Revlon 's Nude attitude! It's drugstore, its cheap and it won't hurt the bank right :)?

Revlon nude attitude: (actual pics coming later :] )
The packaging is very cute, just a simple matte black.

The price was decent, 7.99$ on sale at shoppers drugmart! I hear you can get it anywhere from 5-8$, just depends where you get it (ahh the downside of drugstore brands :[ )! It wasn't a bad price tho, I was lucky to have stopped into shoppers during their sales.

For the price, it wasn't bad. You definitely need smooth lips, have a thin layer of lip blam or have scrubbed your lips before application. If not, you'll see it settle in the cracks of your lips ...very uncool since I forget some days and its just a waste since you have to wipe it off because it looks bad haha. I find it cakey, and the wear isn't bad. You can build it up for a much more concealed look.

Overall rating: 3.5/5
Not bad for a drugstore product, but nothing outstanding. Good try if you want to have a nude lip.

Mac's creme de nude cremesheen :
Packaging is how any mac lipstick is, glossy black tube!

The price was around 18$ with tax. Sadly, I don't think i've ever been to any of Mac's sales to get better deals on their cosmetics :(

I wanted to try something a little better then Revlon, and I was debating for the longest time which to get. Mac's satin myth, or the cremesheen. I swatched myth on my hand and it goes on like a pure concealer, and when I tried it on my lips (non lipbalm/non scrubbed) it settled in every crease it could find. I found creme de nude to apply way smoother, and it only settled in the creases when you really have dry lips. It has the sheen to it, so you don't look washed out and deathly when you wear it w/o lip gloss.

Overall: 4/5
Still not my HG, but its good to have that nude lip with a little extra :)
