#InstagramStories make me watch EVERYTHING.
That's too much. 😰
& I'm confused.
Tbh I just gotten é 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 é Recent Updates & All Stories breakdown. IG needs a bit more work, but it definitely has a wider reach, & it seems like é world has shifted allegiance.
#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! 💕
Aiyahyahyahyah. I made a 3rd purchase on #KylieCosmetics & my first order has yet to even arrive. 🔫
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. 😅
Aiyah. Basically I feel guilty but I also feel 对不起自己 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 💕.
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 😅
Anyone can use a good shade of nude gloss. Right? Right!
Seeing those "Add To Cart" buttons gives me cheap thrill. 😂
In é earlier order I also purchased é 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.
New Years Eve
Chinese New Year
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 é power of a red lip.
This is é 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 & é 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 é 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, 💋.
Every now & then I indulge in a 💄.
Now that I'm 🏠, I'm also trying to adjust back to my detox plan. 😂 Which has gone ridiculously outta hand! 😈
#CarmenEatsClean again! (Soon?)
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. 💕
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:
• 2 Ripe Avocados
• Juice of 1/2 a Lemon 🍋
• 1/3 teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
• 1/3 teaspoon Ground Cumin
• 1/3 teaspoon Cayenne
• 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground Black Pepper
• 1/3 teaspoon Italian Herbs
• 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder (why not)
• 1/2 medium Onion, minced
• 1 teaspoon Spring Onion, finely sliced
• 1 clove Garlic, finely minced
• Greek Yoghurt on the side
Dump everything into a bowl. 😂
Tip #1: I left é Avocados last bcos it will turn brown really quickly. Hence é moment I scooped it into é bowl I made sure to immediately add lemon juice to slow down oxidation. If é Avocados are not soft enough, roughly chop first, makes it easier to mash & mix thereafter.
Tip #2: Don't completely mash é avos, a lil bit of bite is always nice. 😉
If I had fresh tomatoes I'll definitely throw some in. 🍅
• As a dip, fresh veg sticks: Cucumber, Celery, Baby Carrots
• On a warm toast, chilled guacamole spread + smoked salmon, yummy! 🍞
• On an instant prata, a generous dollop of guacamole in é middle, throw on some grilled chicken, chopped fresh 🍅, & 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 🍅, jalapeños, & finished w fresh cream / yoghurt. 👍🏻💣💕
On a toast, LIKE DIS! 😍😋💦
