Recent Forever21 Picks

I was browsing through the website for deals and found the jacket
I have been liking on sale for $20 (original $41). They also had
the shorts I had wanted back in the summer on sale in my size, so
I decided not to wait any longer, because anyone who shops on
Forever21, KNOW that there is an 85% that the item in your size
will be gone in 30 minutes or less lol :p

I got the jacket in an xsmall, but it's an inch or two too big.
I'm still keeping it though :p

Get the jacket here :)

The shorts I have been loving since last year :p
They might not look like much, but they look great on :)

Get the shorts here :)

I also bought some socks, because almost all my socks have holes in them ><
and a lovely periwinkle coloured cardigan <3>

Get the cardigan here & socks here :)

I wasn't too sure about this blouse, should I keep it?
I like how the placement of the lace is different... but it is a bit big on me,
even though it's a size xsmall, it fits like a medium. It's very billowy.
I'll try to do more outfit posts so you guys can see what the clothes look like.
Unfortunately, the weather does not permit me to wear such sheer clothing lol

Get the blouse here :)

Silk Naturals ☆ Blush Swatches

left-right: Pretty Plum, Wish You Were Here, Petal (swiped 2/3 times)

Yikes, loose powder blushes!
Honestly, I'm not sure why I decided to buy these... probably because I was
extremely attracted to the swatches on their website. Seriously... do these not
look beautiful to you? I have 5 more of their sample blushes and I don't think
I'm going to review/post about them unless you want to see swatches.

I really love these... if only they sold them in a pressed powder form ><
I know I can probably press it myself, but knowing how I am, I won't be
arsed to do it, because I'm just that lazy :p

Pretty Plum is really pretty!!! It's the perfect mauve-y blush shade I have
been searching for. It's softer in person and not too dark.

Wish You Were Here is a nice coral shade which is very pretty :)

Petal is a very light petal/blossom pink shade and shows up quite light
on my cheeks, but it gives me a light/fresh look.

Positive Notes
☆ very pigmented
☆ smooth texture
☆ lasts almost all day
☆ beautiful colour selection (some are dupes for MAC blushes)

Other Notes
☆ the darker colours are very pigmented so you have to use a light hand
☆ loose powder form = messy
☆ not very travel friendly

☆ $1.25 (sample)
☆ $6.50 (10gram jar)

Purchase them here if you're interested!

Here are some flash photos for you :)

and a surprise Nubar Favourites of 2012 video :p

Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum

Finally! a review for this lovely serum :)

Positive Notes:
☆ Natural skincare product
☆ Brightens the face
☆ Evens out skin tone
☆ Absorbs quickly

Other Notes:
☆ Should not be used as a moisturizer alone
☆ Always put on your serum after your toner and before your moisturizer!

☆ Lightweight
☆ 85-90% transparent?

☆ Unfortunately, does not smell like oranges >>
☆ I smell hints of Aloe
☆ Has a very light subtle scent

☆ $27-33

How I use it:
☆ Cleanse my face in the evening (Acure's 2in1 facial gel cleanser)
☆ Apply toner (Thayer's rose petal witch hazel)
☆ Apply serum (Mad Hippie's vitamin c serum)
☆ Apply a night time moisturizer (Acure's Argan Stem Cell night cream)

I do recommend this serum to all skin types, it's a great addition to your
skincare and can only help to improve the texture of your skin :)

I see a brightening effect right away after using this serum.

I purchased mine from and I also have a code (IJI628).
Use my code to get $10 off your first order!

Do you guys like this format for a review? I noticed that I tend to ramble
a lot in my previous ones... this is a lot more direct lol
