in Aveda, Hair

Those who follow me on Instagram may know by now that I recently got another haircut. My hair has been evolving since I got it hacked off into a bob cut earlier this year. I would call my current hairstyle a long-ish pixie cut, if that makes sense and I am really enjoying having short hair these days.

I got my most recent cut at the ReStyle (by Aveda) salon at NuSentral a week ago. I was browsing through a few hair products and came across the Aveda Defining Whip hair wax.

REN Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser

in Cleanser, REN

My skin has been rather troublesome of late. I think the dust bunnies from moving house two months ago made my skin allergies flare up. I’ve had a rather terrible time trying to calm it down, and even got to the point of eliminating most of my skincare to just the basics; cleanser, toner and moisturiser. I couldn’t use any of my beloved facial oils because they made my skin react.

What I found has helped is using a non-drying cleanser and gently “buffing” my skin with a soft washcloth. That got rid of most of the bumps. At first I was using the Clarisonic Aria but it didn’t help. I also purchased a few REN skincare in the Evercalm range (for sensitive skin) and the Hot Cloth Cleanser a few weeks ago. So far, they have not caused any adverse reactions and my skin is slowly starting to look normal.

thebalm cindy-lou manizer

I picked up theBalm’s Cindy-Lou Manizer several months ago but didn’t get around to play with it until recently. I love the Mary-Lou Manizer and it is one of the highlighters that I keep going back to.

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!

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.
