LB Bomber Jacket πŸ’• x Kylie Cosmetics x A Bold Red Lip x Homemade Guacamole

#InstagramStories make me watch EVERYTHING.

That's too much. 😰

& I'm confused.

Tbh I just gotten Γ© hang of posting vids on Snapchat, & then Ig Stories launched.

Social media, WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME!? 😭

So Snapchat / Ig Stories?

I think SC is more organised, & has better filters / more features. I prefer Γ© Recent Updates & All Stories breakdown. IG needs a bit more work, but it definitely has a wider reach, & it seems like Γ© world has shifted allegiance.

SIGH.

#Snapchat v.s. #Instagram

Caught #LoveBonito's launch! & thanks to Nad Nad I've this chio bomber jacket in XS & S! We'll see which fits better since bombers are meant to be slightly baggy & I really dk if my usual XS will fit the look / vibe. Woohoo! Happiness.

Stole my brother's Cheap Monday bomber for my Bali trip & I LOVED it. Can't wait to have one of my own, & in a lady's cut too! Whee! πŸ’•

Kylie Cosmetics.

Aiyahyahyahyah. I made a 3rd purchase on #KylieCosmetics & my first order has yet to even arrive. πŸ”«

I think I've suppressed the urge for far too long & now I'm exploding from easy temptation. Anyhow. #Kylie restocked on some of her classics. I'm too tired to figure the Singapore time converted from "August 12, 2PM PST" (go figure) so I just went online to try my luck & lo and behold there were stocks for 2 more colours I've been wanting badly.. Koko K & Posie K.

& even though I told myself "mai siao pls" cos I spent a considerably guilty amount of moolah on my first 2 orders, that I stress, has YET TO ARRIVE (or = I don't know if I'll even like the formula / colour), my heart was stronger than my head.

So.. I.. Caved.

But from the many reviews I've been stalking I think it's a safe bet I'll like the colors. #honest

& even though the hype was Maliboo, I stuck to what I was certain will work for me, so I'm still.. Sorta rational. πŸ˜…

#DayreBeauty

Aiyah. Basically I feel guilty but I also feel 对不衷θ‡ͺε·± if I hadn't purchase them cos I've been thinking about it for too damn long. #dilemma

& how often is it that you'll have Koko K Lip Kit & Posie K Lip Kit restocked together. Besides, I already ordered Candy K Lip Kit.. So I feel like.. Might as well have the set. Those 3 colors are so πŸ’•.

#selfjustification

If anyone of you have been wanting the 3 good old shades, you should check it out now.

I also carted the So Cute Lip Gloss, this is a bit of a naughty treat cos I could have lived without it but.. I didn't want to waste the postage on just 2 sets of Lip Kit πŸ˜…

Anyone can use a good shade of nude gloss. Right? Right!

Seeing those "Add To Cart" buttons gives me cheap thrill. πŸ˜‚

#shopaholic

In Γ© earlier order I also purchased Γ© Mary Jo K separately but the Lip Kit is back in stock. Damn. But it's okay. I still stand by not missing out on a good shade of cool tone red. Reds are so tricky. A neutral one is hard to find, and a gem to keep cos.. There's always an occasion for a red lip.

Christmas
New Years Eve
Chinese New Year
Valentines Day
Gala / Formal / Wedding Dinners
Etc etc etc

Hence, a good shade of red that compliments your skin tone, is always an investment. Like it or not.

& even though I will hands down choose my pinks over a red any day, I cannot deny Γ© power of a red lip.

This is Γ© one & only red lipstick I own, #635 Very Cherry by #Maybelline. All my lippies are in a million & one shade of pink; nude pink baby pink salmon pink peachy pink fuchsia pink hot pink coral pink & Γ© list goes on..

But red is just different. Imo red may make me look fiercer than I actually am, but it's such a classic. Bold Red Lip, Little Black Dress, these have stood Γ© test of time.

A scarlet lip inevitably signal grace & confidence. A charismatically fearless lady with opinionated views dressed in a crimson pout. Or at least the shade exude such feminine power.

Look, even Emoji chose a red lip, πŸ’‹.

Every now & then I indulge in a πŸ’„.

Now that I'm 🏠, I'm also trying to adjust back to my detox plan. πŸ˜‚ Which has gone ridiculously outta hand! 😈

#CarmenEatsClean again! (Soon?)

Homemade Guacamole!

Since I was away for 5 days, my poor avocados ripened completely. 😒

Thus I was inspired (or rather bo bian) to take on a virgin attempt at Guacamole. πŸ’•

I've always wanted to make my own, cos every time I watched cooking shows / YouTube vids, it looks super duper yums! So I googled Guacamole, & adopted the following recipe, tweaking it to suit whatever I had available in my fridge.

I think guacs are one of those dishes you let your creativity run the show anyways.

This is my version:

β€’ 2 Ripe Avocados
β€’ Juice of 1/2 a Lemon πŸ‹
β€’ 1/3 teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
β€’ 1/3 teaspoon Ground Cumin
β€’ 1/3 teaspoon Cayenne
β€’ 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground Black Pepper
β€’ 1/3 teaspoon Italian Herbs
β€’ 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder (why not)
β€’ 1/2 medium Onion, minced
β€’ 1 teaspoon Spring Onion, finely sliced
β€’ 1 clove Garlic, finely minced

β€’ Greek Yoghurt on the side

Dump everything into a bowl. πŸ˜‚

Tip #1: I left Γ© Avocados last bcos it will turn brown really quickly. Hence Γ© moment I scooped it into Γ© bowl I made sure to immediately add lemon juice to slow down oxidation. If Γ© Avocados are not soft enough, roughly chop first, makes it easier to mash & mix thereafter.

Tip #2: Don't completely mash Γ© avos, a lil bit of bite is always nice. πŸ˜‰

If I had fresh tomatoes I'll definitely throw some in. πŸ…

Serving options:
β€’ As a dip, fresh veg sticks: Cucumber, Celery, Baby Carrots
β€’ On a warm toast, chilled guacamole spread + smoked salmon, yummy! 🍞
β€’ On an instant prata, a generous dollop of guacamole in Γ© middle, throw on some grilled chicken, chopped fresh πŸ…, & serve pizza style. This is a dish inspired from my Bali trip, I legit died of food orgasm. We re-ordered this dish. More specifically it was chicken quesadilla topped w guac, fresh πŸ…, jalapeΓ±os, & finished w fresh cream / yoghurt. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’£πŸ’•

On a toast, LIKE DIS! πŸ˜πŸ˜‹πŸ’¦
