HOW TO: MESSY WAVES FOR SHORT HAIR













So you may have seen from my videos or my vlogs that I cut my hair super super short (well, short for me since I've had long hair since forever). I'm absolutely loving it and it appears that some of you were curious to know how I style my short hair, so I put together a video showing you how I curl it and the products I use for this particular look.

There really is no technique to it, it's as easy as 1-2-3 (especially for a hair styling noob like me).
I love how it just immediately adds a bit of edginess and quirkiness to my look and it's definitely something very fresh!

EATING IN LONDON : PING PONG


Ping Pong, Eastcastle Street, London
(Nearest exit: Oxford Circus Station) 

My friend Suzi and I met up for a day of shopping, then proceeded to leave a beauty event with shrieking stomachs asking for food. We passed by Ping Pong and since evening dim sum was a first for both of us, we decided to give it a go.
We were seated at the Dim Sum bar which, truth be told, was not my preferred area to dine in. It was hot and stuffy with all the steam coming out of the kitchen, but the view of stacks and stacks of dim sum were quite a sight. 







I've always been told I had tastebuds of a Westerners. I've always loved English-Chinese food as opposed to traditional, authentic Chinese food, which was why I enjoyed eating at Ping Pong so much. The flavour was definitely tailored for Westerners, but they still managed to keep dishes authentic. My favorite had to be the roast pork puff, just because it had a mixture of sweet and salty (my weird but favorite combo). The honeyed chilli chicken rice pot was my second favorite along with the potato and edamame cake which was something fresh and new that I've never had before.
All in all, it may seem like Ping Pong is just one of those Chinese fusion restaurants, but the quality of its dim sum surprised me and I will be sure to return when I visit London again.

KOREAN MUA'S FAVORITE: MUSTAEV

 


I know I know, everyone loves blogs with white pictures but to be fair to these pastel colored eyeshadows, a dark background was what I went for.

Recently, Mustaev sent me four eyeshadows to play with. Although I've never heard of the brand before, after some research I learned that their products are developed in the beauty mecca of Korea, tried and tested by Korea's own makeup artists. 

Having learned that, I said yes to sampling these eyeshadows and here are my first impressions.
