plannerbug - filofax & nespresso

Hello, everybody! Those who follow my social media, either Twitter or Instagram, will know that I recently left my job and am currently a stay-at-home-wife a.k.a. housewife. I have been rather domestic of late, taking care of our new condo and cooking up a storm.

This life is quite different from what I’m accustomed to. I went from having very busy work days (and nights) to not-so-busy days. I also discovered a love for paper planners and have gone completely bonkers over planning my days and decorating my Filofax. Although life may not be as hectic as when I was working, I still find some use in organising my day and keeping track of time. Surprisingly, my days do get quite filled up.

I started a blog called Plannerbug to share some snippets of my home life and what I’ve been up to. I hope you’ll find some of my posts useful and I’ll be posting up some tips and tricks on staying organised. It’s still a new blog and I’m not sure where the wind may take me but I hope that it’s something that I will enjoy doing for a long time :-)

Do pop in and check it out. I’m open to feedback too so please feel free to leave them here or on my new blog. I also have a Plannerbug Facebook page, something I have not even done done for this beauty blog (egads!). Yep, I caught a bug, all right!

Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend ahead!



bareminerals ready eyeshadow

I’ve never really tried anything bareMinerals and I know they are known for their mineral foundations. A few months ago, I was perusing through their display at Sephora but nothing really caught my attention until my eyes fell on the eyeshadows. Then I touched and swatched them. It was love.

marc jacobs highliner blacquer

I was so excited when Marc Jacobs Beauty arrived in our local Sephoras as I have read a lot of raves on a few products. I picked up the Genius Gel Foundation and the Blacquer eyeliner because these were the two products that folks have been talking about. Besides, I’m always on the lookout for a good black, brown or grey pencil eyeliner.

kiehl's fig leaf & sage

I love scents. I may not blog about them often but I do love my fragrances and have pretty much been a perfume lover since I was a teen. From cheap and cheerful to expensive and niche, I have tried or at least sniffed quite a good array of scents over the years. However, I find my taste has evolved as I erm,… grew older and I tend to seek relatively unisex scents in the last few years or so.

I was perusing Kiehl’s a few months back to take a closer look at the fragrances on display. I vaguely remembered the launch of the fragrance line they call Aromatic Blends back in 2012 as I think I received a periodical or email about it. The first one that caught my eye was Fig Leaf & Sage. It sounded herbal and woodsy, the sort of scent I find attractive.

I did sort of debate if I should write about the Tom Ford brushes I got in Australia because they are not available locally. But heck… they are honestly too gorgeous to ignore. I took a 20-minute walk to David Jones the moment I reached my hotel in Melbourne to get these babies. Yes, they are really expensive but a splurge I do not regret.
