[outfit] recently... summer looks

Work has been a little hectic that blog updating has been de-prioritised. It's official, summer's here! (did it ever leave LA? lol) I cannot believe we are past the half way mark of 2013 already, it seemed like yesterday that we were all counting down, drinking bubbly, farewelling 2012!! Now summer's here, got to look the part! dunno if I did, but here's me recently..

[care][skin] Shockingly good- Sulwhasoo whitening mask

I've been wanting to try this high end Korean Skincare line Sulwhasoo for a while now but their line of product's so extensive I wasn't really sure where to start. Founded in 1966, basing their entire line of products on herbal ingredient (most famously Korean ginseng) it is said to have dramatic glowing effects on the skin. I saw this new face mask while passing their counter when I was in Taiwan, after the convincing sales ladies' pitch I gave in..

[food] wild mushroom risotto

I was contacted by one of the readers who requested that I post an entry on the making of risotto (okay.. it was my cousin who whatsapped me.. haha) I've been wanting to try and make wild mushroom risottos for ages, what a perfect opportunity to experiment!

[care][hair] solution to hair loss- La biosthetique shampoo for the scalp

I am fairly adventurous when it comes to hair styles, "it's going to grow back anyway" I always think. I've had hair down to waist lengths and shorter than Demi Moore in the 90s.

Why Demi Moore one may ask? Well, as hot as she was in the 90s, mother was a fan of her infamous haircut, so, I guess she thought, Demi's hair + my teenage daughter's face would be a solution to hair styling success, well, as it turned out, not so much, but I didn't hate it, looking back now, I really should have!

[care][skin]- Asahi Shizuku- my new found odourless hydrating obsession

I don't have the best of skins, therefore taking care and maintaining it would require extra efforts. I'd say my skin is more towards the sensitive side of the spectrum, living in a practically desert like climate in LA doesn't help either.. Without careful attention i could probably age 10 years in 2! 

I am VERY adventurous when it comes to testing new skincare products,hence the boxes of bottles on my dressing table. This is my new found obsession from Tokyo.

After my trip to Taiwan and Japan, I came back with 3 pairs of print jeans (more like leggings), god knows why but I am liking it quite a bit.. for now!

I saw this one pan pasta recipe yesterday was shocked at how easy it was, thought I'd give it a try with some modifications!
