Who wants to be a queen bee for a day? This look was inspired by the simple bumble bee, portrayed as the simple yellow and black but pair it together with my bee hive hair, pointed stinger and sweet flower lips for you to lead the way as queen bee!

I’ve been really into my nails lately. I can’t seem to pass by a nail polish display rack without some colour catching my eye. As my collection was growing I thought it was time to do some cleaning out, removing some old ones and rearranging what was left. I also thought it would be interesting to see what brands I loved the most, what colours were the most and least popular in my collection and how many bottles in total did I have at this point. If you want to know the answers then stick around with me!

Oh my beloved China Glaze Summer Neon colours, Orange You Hot? and Flirty Tankini was just idly sitting by and I thought I needed just one more way to wear them again. Both are fabulous, vibrant colours on their own and looked soft and pretty sheered out in my watercolour manicure. I wanted another way to wear them together but this time it should allow them to be the bold, vibrant colours that they are. Introducing my splatter nails (which is one of the newest nail trends) featuring my two summer neons from China Glaze.

Did you see my face and lip products? Well go back and see them now. But in case you did already, here is the rest of what’s in my makeup bag, the eye products. I love the saying that the eyes are the windows to your soul. At one point in time I was really disappointed that my eyes were small but I’ve since grown to love them immensely.

Want to know what to do with the Maybelline color tattoos? Use them as a base! So that once you apply a coordinating eye-shadow on top, it certainly pops. Join me if you want to recreate this simply yet sultry look using the Maybelline Pomegranate Punk color tattoo.

Glitter can be so much fun. If you are not planning to get a full nail of glitter, then simply add them to your tips like you would in a French manicure. Add a flower accent and you’re all done for these easy simple glitter tips. Glam-more is a gorgeous fuchsia coloured crackle glitter polish.

The contents of my makeup bag are constantly changing. I try to test out new products but still give attention to each of my beloved makeup items. I also try to ensure the contents of my makeup bag would be suited to the outfit I’m wearing. During the week while avoiding the traffic, I arrive rather early at my workplace so this is where I usually apply my makeup. On weekends I can spend as much time as I want rummaging through all the makeup drawers for whatever colours or tools I need for that look. Whereas most of my co-workers may carry lunch bags, I carry to work my makeup bag, disguised as a lunch bag!

My how time flies? It’s a saying I’ve use quite often and heard repeatedly said by others as well. I was hoping I would be able to say the same thing about these Maybelline 14hour lipsticks while wearing them to work last week but alas I couldn’t!

Remember my first attempt at watercolour nails? It turned out more like speckled nails since the methylated spirits didn’t quite agree with the polish formula. So now that I got the acetone, here is my second attempt at watercolour nails with a tutorial in case you want to try this out for yourself.

I know I was quite young when Ricky Martin released Shake Your Bon-Bon from his self-titled album. This song brings back so many fond memories for me. I loved seeing him dance and well… shake his bon-bon. Ricky didn’t stop at just music but is giving himself towards a worthy cause in MAC’s Viva Glam campaign this year. Ricky teamed up with Nicki Minaj and together they introduced the Viva glam Nicki lipstick and Ricky’s lip conditioner to support the MAC AIDS fund. Unfortunately I cannot seem to get a hold of the lipstick but the lip conditioner was more readily available.
