Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Blogger Event: Of Pyjamas, Candles And Some Boob Talk

What do pyjamas, candles and boob talk have in common? Yes!! A pyjamas partaayyy!!!

Only that I didn’t get to have the boob talk at the actual event. You’ll see in a while.

When I got invited for the event I didn’t expect to be that special and fun! Oh I never expect anything out of any event anyway coz every one is always different.

On the eve of the event my blog manager Gabby texted me to come dressed in pyjamas and I was like ‘HUH? Pyjamas?! Why so weird?’ but in my heart my reaction was more like ‘YAYYY!!! HAPPY!!!’. LOL.

How I LUURRVVEEE themed parties! School uniform, Geeky, Shanghai, Wondergirls (HAHA!), Cowboy, etc. I love dressing up specially for an event; going through all the costumes, makeup, hair makes me ~high~. That’s why I LOVE Halloween!

OMG! That’s in less than two months!!!  

A themed party makes the experience more wholesome, the energy more united and everyone more in tuned with one another. It’s like having a shared, sacred memory.

I love themed outings, but one thing I no longer do is wear couple clothing.

It’s so… um… un-adult-like. Maybe coz we’re both 28 and way over the let’s-get-cute-together-and-let-everyone-know-we’re-an-item stage. Kinda passe, you know what I mean? We’ve been together since secondary school. Yea, we did the couple clothing thing back then. That’s why I felt a little, teeny, tiny awkward when we went out in BRIGHT orange top and off-white shorts/berms just recently. Hoho.

Unintentional mitchy-matchy couple tops *shy*


Guest Post – How Do You Deep Clean Your Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush?

These are the usual instructions for brush cleaning:

  1. Wet the bristles.
  2. Apply a small amount of shampoo onto your hand and with the brush, work into a lather.
  3. Rinse the bristles under running water. The initial stream of water will contain makeup residue.
  4. Rinse until no shampoo or makeup residue is left on the bristles.
  5. Leave to dry.

Well, with the Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabubi Brush, the usual set of rules don’t work to bring the brown and dirty bristles from a week’s use back to their original white tip condition.

Today I guest blogged about how the Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge managed to miraculously clean the hardest to clean of brushes – Sigma F80 Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush. If you read it, it will change your life too. Haha.

As mentioned in my post on how to How To Deep Clean Your Makeup Brushes With The Daiso Detergent For Puff and Sponge, I was pulling out my hair every time I had to wash the F80 brush. Due to its incredibly soft and dense bristles that stain from liquid foundation, regular shampoo cannot get rid of the makeup residue.

Was it just me? Was my method of brush cleansing wrong? I thronged the web for a solution, then I came across blogs that claimed that staining of the Sigma F80 is inevitable.

No, no.

I was not willing to take ‘inevitable staining’ for an answer.

From a 45 minutes brush cleansing battle, the Daiso brush cleanser has cut the time required to clean the Sigma F80 brush to a mere 5 minutes (less than that actually!).
