I have just started reading Bobbi Brown’s Living Beauty and what Vera Wang said about her makeup routine right about sums up mine as well.  “When I do makeup, I focus on evening out my complexion with foundation…it literally takes twenty years off my face…” 

Like Vera Wang, I’m obsessed with my skin, but unlike her, makeup don’t make me look twenty years younger! *boo hoo*  But I have to concede that mineral makeup does help to take some years off my looks because the end result is a very natural looking complexion.  Plus I love the fact that mineral makeup is good for my skin

Swirl pretty in vintage inspired fashion

These vintage inspired dresses and skirts are tailored by two girls from Singapore who love to swirl in front of the mirror in their self-tailored dresses.  

Pretty breezy dresses, v necks, polka dots, satin waistbands, draped capelet, neat bows, and black ruffles.  Most of their clothes are full of feminine appeal designed to be flattering on us even on days when we’re not looking our best.  I especially like their new satin tinsey dress which is roomy enough yet helps us look slim on days when water retention hits.

Brazilian wax to keep the nether region tidy

Being in Asia, it’s impossible to miss reading about the Edison Chen scandal mania that is so riveting within the Asian celebrity scene currently especially with the hundreds of photos that are out there on the Net.  Some bits of the information are so hilarious, like someone who commented why Edison would enjoy women who looked like goats from their waist down.  The women, in particular Cecilia Cheung and Gillian Chung were lambasted not for the racy pictures, but for the fact that they didn’t go for Brazilian Waxes to keep their nether region clean and tidy.  And this got me really curious.  Is Brazilian wax the norm now?
