THE ROUNDUP: ANNECY



















My 4-day trip to Annecy was definitely one to remember. Despite the fluctuating weather, I could not get the beautiful lake views out of my head. The freezing but clear water, the beautiful mountains that tower over Annecy and of course, macaron-flavored icecream at Chez Poustache. We were going to go paragliding but the weather did not permit - not sure if I was bummed or secretly relieved. 

Annecy is such a gorgeous and relaxing place. A small town, but tons to do, very friendly people and lots to eat!

Restaurants I would recommend are:

La Freti - traditional Suisse raclette and fondue. Be prepared to ban cheese from your diet for the next month or so though.
La Porte Saint Claire - very traditional French food - I highly recommend the Sole and if you're a fan of frog legs, their grenouilles would not disappoint.

Chez Poustache - beautifully displayed ice-creams you would not mistake its flavor. Macaron, peche and pistache were my favorite flavors. 
La Taverne de Maitre Kanter - been here twice. It's seafood platter is definitely one of the best I've tried with extremely fresh lobster and crab. Their desserts are also worth a try! 

Activities I would recommend:

Paragliding - although we did not get a chance to go, I'm sure it would've been an incredible experience.
Boating on the lake - be it a motor boat or a pedal boat, either would give you incredible views of the lake. The best chill activity is to just sit in the middle of the lake, jump in the water when you feel like it and just to soak up nature!
Get lost - Annecy always reminded me of Venice. There are so many little antique shops where you could just browse all day. Everywhere you go is almost worth stopping to take a picture with its beautiful houses and balconies decorated with bright colorful flowers. 

Have you been to Annecy? What did you think of it?

Full Day Test & Review: 3CE Liquid Foundation

Guilty! I'm officially the worst blogger on the planet. I've been so into making  videos that I've completely neglected my blog.
I actually find more satisfaction in making videos instead of taking photos, and life has been a whirlwind! Hopefully I will be able to make an update post soon, but in the meantime, I have a video I've worked quite hard on to share with you all!




Recently I've been sent this foundation by YesStyle. They asked me to choose a 3CE product (a brand that I really like), and asked me to do a neutral review on it. No sugarcoating, just my honest and upfront thoughts.
If you have followed my Cantonese channel, you may know that I often do these full day review videos where I test a foundation throughout the day and show you what the foundation looks like, adding my own comments here and there.
This time I added subtitles so that my non-Cantonese speaking viewers could also benefit from the review. Even if my comments don't help, looking at how the foundation transitions from day to evening hopefully can help you with your decision on selecting a foundation!

Do let me know if these English subtitles help! If so, I will for sure add subtitles to my future videos :)

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!
