powderfuu stories guest starring Susie Chow!

 This is too awesome! Susie is going to guest star on my blog! She's a fantastic writer and mother to 2 beautiful boys! A freelance copywriter and storyteller. Here's what she has to say about our favourite topic: beauty products! Yummy!

What’s the best thing about being best friends with a make-up artist? Beauty advice of course! My gorgeous friend Venetia put me onto this amazing Japanese beauty range called Libote. The first thing that caught my eye when I saw this range was that it is made with 100%  “hot spring water” – I felt squeaky clean just thinking about it!

Libote Sakura Cleanser
I have 3 letters for this amazing cleanser… O.M.G! You know those little icky itty bitty black heads you get all over your nose (well me anyway….), this is the first cleanser that I have found that really really gets rid of them! As you can see the cleanser is black. Well…  it should be, it’s got charcoal in it! And I truly believe that charcoal is the magic ingredient. After all, charcoal has already been used for hundreds and thousands of years as an absorbing and cleansing agent (what do we know?!). And every time I use this cleanser, I just get this image in my mind of the charcoal working like a big black magnet pulling and drawing out those little stubborn black heads in my nose leaving my pores absolutely clean and clear. Ooooooh how utterly delightful!!!

Libote Sakura Moisture Cream
So what else would you expect from a Japanese beauty range but a moisturiser that actually produces beads of water on your skin as you apply it? Sheeeeeesh! These Japanese are just too much for me! Yup, this little genius moisturiser starts off as a light cream, but when you rub it into your skin, it beads up into tiny little water droplets (hot spring water, might I add) for the ultimate hydrating experience.

Chloe EDT
Last night Venetia gave me a bottle of the new Chloe EDT! Awesome!! Well actually, I’m not really that much of a perfume person, but only because I’m scared. I’m terrified of those heavy overbearing stenches that can make you go from chic to cheap in a nanosecond! You all know the ones I am talking about!

Anyway, the Chloe EDT was not scary at all! It was um… er… how do I describe it? I’m not much of a perfume connoisseur so a quick search on the internet gave me this description... “Soft floral tones reminiscent of magnolia, rose and lily of the valley with a cedar wood and amber base”. Whatever! To me, it was more like laying in front of the fireplace on a cold December night, after having soaked in a long and decadent bath, and cuddling up to your favourite Audrey Niffenegger novel! Delicious!

Cool kiddie bike

Hey! This looks like a new and awesome way to learn how to ride a bike! Teaches kids balance and seems sturdy enough. Looks like the tricycle we used to ride on is way passe!

Chanel's very wearable Spring 2010 palette!

Ok I LOVE LOVE LOVE this palette of colours! Such wearability and what beautiful smokey shades they are! The lipstick might be a tad too pale for the asian market but looks so sexy on a caucasian girl. The nail colours are just as delicious too, a plae dusty pink and a dull brown (featured on model below).

Definitely worth the investment!
And here is my interpretation on beautiful Polish model, Victoria:

Malin+Goetz Perfume

Was doing a photoshoot today at House on Dempsey and discovered they have a Beauty Emporium selling yummy things! Tested all the Malin+Goetz Perfumes and they were yummy! My favourites were geranium and petitgrain tonic!
Still sniffing at my hand after 5 hours and it smells so delightful!

Hey this House on Dempsey is also a great place to go for a pedicure and lunch with the girlies!

My Wisma Ad

              Did this Wisma Atria Christmas Ad with photographer Roy Zhang. Always so nice working with him!

Her Fearful Symmetry

All us Audrey Niffenegger fans had to wait 6 long long years for her second novel to come out, and it has proven that patience pays off!
She is just such an entertaining writer, with little eccentricities that I find myself enjoying while reading her books.

In Her Fearful Symmetry, a ghost story set in and around Highgate Cemetry, Niffenegger tells a story about identical mirror twins Julia and Valentina's strongly entertwined relationship and how they struggle with trying to be independent individuals.
It becomes a ghost story and of course, ends ironically, just like her first novel, The Time Traveller's Wife.

No doubt her first novel will always be my favourite, but Her Fearful Symmetry was just as entertaining!

4 Fingers BonChon Chicken

This is a concept created by my husband, along 3 other business partners and the Asylum team. If you haven't tried 4 Fingers BonChon Crispy Chicken, you really don't know what you're missing out on!

Founded in NYC by a Korean, BonChon Korean Crispy Chicken has been voted THE no.1 chicken in the USA by GQ and Esquire magazine. And I kid you not, this chicken is damn good!

While in its heyday, I was made to taste the chicken, hot, cold, fresh, 2 days old and flown directly from NYC. I had BonChon chicken everyday! But I never tired of it! Unbelievable!

Who doesn't like a good chicken wing? I could eat 12 of them at one go! Not forgetting my favourite KimChi coleslaw, which was my husband's brilliant idea!

It makes for a good party/ pot luck food, but it's not ready with delivery services yet. You could head on down to B4 Ion Orchard... but better yet, if you're reading this blog and would like to get your hands on a big order (100 pieces or more), you're very welcomed to get in contact with me and I can try my best to sort you out! : )

I check my blog everyday!

Four fingers in the air!

Snowman In Africa

Need a Christmas gift idea?

For the 2009 Gucci Campaign to Benefit UNICEF, Frida Giannini has commissioned author Michael Roberts to create a sequel to his popular children's book, Snowman in Paradise, which was published in 2004.

The new book, titled Snowman in Africa, will be exclusively on sale in Gucci stores and on from November 16 through December 31, 2009. Gucci will donate 100% of the retail price of the book to UNICEF programs for orphans and children affected by HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa..

The book will come wrapped in beautiful Gucci ribbon with a card and information about the book and Unicef.

So if you want to do something nice with style, head to your nearest Gucci boutique!

Fat Girl Slim

Feeling fat around your neck? Why not try an ass cream!

A couple of weeks ago I was seriously contemplating going for botox around my neck...I couldn't see where my face ended and neck started and looked soo awful in pictures! There was no more definition and I felt so yucks!

One day while in my bathroom staring at my fat face and wondering what I could do about it, I saw from the corner of my eye, a jar of Fat Girl Slim I had gotten as a gift after being invited by Sephora to try out their newly opened Bliss spa. It's been sitting there and this crazy idea of using it on my neck came to me!

I swear to you, its been 8 days and my face has found its definition! I diligently applied it on my neck area with an upwards massage for about 5 minutes, twice a day and voila! No need for botox!

I guess now it s time to start application to my ass then!

Chanel Radiant Glow Highlighting Powder

Make-up palettes nowadays are just too beautiful to use! This is Chanel's Spring 2010 limited edition Radiant Glow Highlighting Powder. Gives cheeks and eyes a soft sun-kissed glow. Beautiful to use with a dewy foundation and very little loose powder or even on its own. Thumbs up on this great, easy to use product!

Dior Cristal Boreal

Every year Dior cosmetics come up with a star product even better than the last, and this year's star product for the festive season is the Cristal Boreal. A beautiful elegant necklace made with Swarovski crystals that reflect off light beautifully. The face of the pendant swivels to reveal a pretty lipgloss with so much shimmer it'll make your lips glow! Very nice Dior! You've done it again!

Harajuku Lovers

2 months ago I was invited to be one of Cleo Singapore's panel of judges for their annual Beauty Awards. 4 huge cartons of products arrived on my doorstep and I had a month and a half to go through and test each and every product from skin care to fragrances! It was mayhem, but a really nice smelling mayhem!
It was then that I discovered my favourite perfume, the Harajuku Lovers! What a fun product it was, the packaging is too cute and having them on my dressing table brings the little girl back in me!

G is my personal favourite! I feel like I'm on a beach holiday so yumms! Super kawaii!

Lovely Bones

Centers on a young girl who has been murdered and watches over her family, and her killer from heaven. She must weigh her desire for vengeance against her desire for her family to heal. Movie will be directed by Peter Jackson... very interesting! Trailers already look better than the book so maybe this will be one of the rare 'movie better than book' ones. Anticipating!

Sephora Christmas Palette

Christmas is the best time to go make-up shopping! Almost every brand of make-up comes up with a Christmas palette all looking so yummy its almost palatable!
Sephora has a wonderful palette with 100 colours that can satisfy your every craving. I likey!

Dior Lip Glow

This Dior Lip Glow looks translucent like a balm but changes your lip color! So comfortable to wear and fantastic for those who hate putting on lipstick but need some kind of glow. Lips look healthy leaving you looking in the pink of health and oh so kissable! My personal favourite item in my make-up bag now!

Current Favourite Magazine

I have to say being in my mid 30's brings about difficulties finding good clothing shops and magazines. Everything seems to be catered to the teens and 20's! I've given up on the shops in Singapore. No matter what new mall sprouts out, the shops remain the same old bland, blah and bleah!
So after watching Running in Heels and how the Marie Claire US team come up with story ideas and fashion spread ideas, I decided to pick up a copy and Hallelujah! My 30 something stlye dictionary in one magazine! Feminine and stylish with pages of yummy products, clothes, shoes that I can attempt to buy online! Bst of all this magazine has great reading material in it too!
Pick one up! I told you so! : P
