I will write in a snap for truffles and cheese. And lipstick.

About me and my blog

I’ve been blogging in and out since 2003 (yes, I’m a blogger lola!). When I started pushing my daily chronicles online, beauty bloggers were unheard of. There were no haul photos, FOTDs, nor swatches lying around the net. I started blogging because as an IT major, putting up a website’s a class requirement. I was then very lazy to write so I started blogging mostly with photos, documenting where I go, what I see, what I buy, and what I eat (my family has been putting up with cold food the last 8 years) on a daily basis.

Today, when I’m not serving my four legged rescued masters Junkie Poo and Lola, I’m either found in the kitchen slicing cheese or in my boudoir, (still) swatching 101 eyeliners, lipsticks, and foundation. On a perfectly good day, I might be running outdoors as well or cleaning my latest extravagance: my new home office.

What inspired me to become a beauty blogger

My mother’s boudoir has always been my favourite hangout at home. Now that I can afford my own space and beauty fixation, I thought it would be nice to share what works and what doesn’t to all the ladies searching for their ultimate, holy grail foundation or my-lips-but-better lipstick.

My all-time favorite beauty product

La Mer The Lip Balm – it’s the only product that can heal my perpetually chapped lips!
