Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

premium mini make-up box karl RM1,500

Up till now I have been dying to buy Shu Uemura's professional make-up box but no luck. They're so rare and they cost RM1.5k! which is how much an entire collection would probably cost. Why is this so rare? well it's hand crafted by one of the artisans, dress-up with a premium silver color and the cute mon shu girl. A Christmas wish that I hope one day will come true. I was so in love with the Aya Takano make-up box!

    1. I tak pandai pun, but the beauty about Shu Uemura cosmetics is it's so easy to use and they're all for natural and flawless look (unless seasonal specials lain).

      first step u can do is use their bb base mouse foundation to even out skintone + uv protection
      second cleansing oil to cleanse your face from using cosmetics products (this means sunblock, base, etc)
      third - blusher to add a pop of color to your face
      lip stick - natural :) to awaken your looks
      e/s - to create drama and alluring eyes <-- but i got my black eye frame so i dun need.. hahaha
