Victoriana Calendars - Cynthia Hart and Zozo The Magic Queen

Today I'll be sharing my love for Victoriana (articles from the Victorian era) and Victorian-inspired designs with you. In January I was looking for a present for my friend at Borders (I'm really upset that it's closing down...) and I saw a rack of those yearly calendars on sale. Browsing through the differently themed designs, I found two that I especially liked and both were Victorian inspired designs with pictures of genuine Victoriana! They cost only 9 SGD each, so I bought them both :) I've taken pictures of some of the pages of both calendars, take a look!

The pretty slip-in case that the Cynthia Hart Victoriana 2011 Calendar comes in...

Battle of the handmade rock candies - Sweet Enchantment VS. Sticky Comparison Post and Review

Apologies for the lack of updates - I promise to update more regularly! I've been "getting used" to my holidays and catching up with old friends for the past few weeks and now it's back to blogging here for all you great readers :)

Today, I'll be reviewing something sweet and sticky that has recently been both on and in the mouths of Singaporeans both young and old... Yes, I'm talking about homemade rock candies! I'm sure most of you have heard of Sticky by now. It's the first brand of handmade candy that opened in the Central and also retails online at the Sticky website. I bought an assorted packet of candies and the "Together We Can Help Japan" candies (they donated the profits to aid for Japan) and thoroughly enjoyed them.

Lychee and cherry flavoured rock candies!

Things started to get interesting when I saw another handmade rock candy store in Vivocity one day... Named "Sweet Enchantment", it struck me as a smaller but quainter shop front. How will it measure up to Sticky? Read on to find out!

Champagne flavoured rock candies!

If you're wondering why there's a random purple and white piece of rock candy at the top of the jar, that's 'cos my SO bought another flavour (Lavender) and we swapped some candies :)

Pure Colors Mineral Powder Swatches and Review

Back after a long hiatus because of the exams!

Eyes - the windows to the soul... As romantic and poetic as that phrase sounds, compared to other parts of the face that can be made up, I've always held that the eyes are one of the first features to be noticed. That's why I've always been looking for ways to play up my eyes and it's been a challenge...
