Recipe: Plain ol' Vanilla Cupcake with Peanut Butter Cream and Honey

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Made some cuppy cakes on sunday night! Boyfriend loves peanut butter so I made these:


 Plain ol' Vanilla Cuppycake [This cupcakes are super moist, Yums!]

Ingredients: 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 2 cups sugar, 2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 2/3 cup oil (vegetable, canola or peanut), 2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water. 

In a large bowl whisk together all the wet ingredients. In a smaller bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients. Add half of the dry ingredients to the wet and whisk until just combined, repeat with the second half. 

Pssst. The batter will be very wet, and liquid-y. Fill cupcake cups with batter so cups are 2/3 full.  Preheat your oven at least 30 mins before baking at 250 C Degree. Bake in a preheated oven to 200 C degree. Bake for 22-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

Peanutbutter, buttercream

1 Stick soften butter, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract and 2-3 cups icing sugar.

In a bowl cream together the butter and vanilla extract. Add the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, and mixing in between until you have the perfect frosting consistency, then mix in half a cup of peanut butter.

After the cupcakes cools, pipe on the peanutbutter cream and i left a small "O" in the middle and drizzled honey in the center.

Sponsored Review: Bifesta Cleaning Sheets + Makeup Remover

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Came home to find a pretty package sealed with a bow sitting on my bed waiting for me!
Mummy said that it was couriered to our house that evening, not having ordered anything online lately, i was extremely curious to find out the contents of that pretty bowed package!

Have a peek, shall we!

Mandom sent me their latest cleansing sheet + makeup remover from Bifesta [pronounced as Bee-festa: Which means Beauty Festival in Japanese, a celebration of beauty where beautiful skin can be achieved quickly & easily with effective makeup remover]

These cleansing sheets and makeup remover are well loved in Japan. 3 Bottles of Bifesta makeup remover is sold every minute in Japan, just imagine that! They used to be known as Cleansing Express and it was pretty popular in SG at a point of time but i've never gotten around to try it cos I've always stocked up on my favorite loreal eye & lip makeup remover, glad to get to try it out now!

My usual LOTD for work, I've always made sure that my makeup is fully off before i go to bed, even if i'm back really late and tired like after clubbing etc I'd still make a point to remove all my makeup first because sleeping with makeup on and imagine all the grime and oil from the entire day.. Eeeeeewww. Gotta let the skin breathe!

And of course, i wouldn't want to give myself any wrinkles by using a lousy quality makeup remover which i might have to rub my eyes over and over again to get rid of my eye makeup, major wrinkle alert!!!

So i'm testing the Bifesta Makeup Remover, , it's actually a water-based makeup remover! Interesting because i've always been using oil based makeup remover so this is something new, poured some on the cotton pad.. and press gently against my eye for about 10 seconds or so..

Almost no trace of makeup left on my eyes! Hmm, doesnt make my whole eye area all greasy like how it will normally be after using my oil based makeup remover/ Very effective! hahah you can even see the very distinct line that the cotton pad ends on my cheek.

Tried the Cleaning Wipes too, There are two types, Purple packaging is for oily skin (me!) and the pinky one is for Normal and Dry skin! I'm not usually a cleaning wipes kinda girl, but man these sheet are something. You know how you usually have to splash your face with some water after using cleaning sheets to remove makeup right? If not there will be this eeky sticky feel?

It's the ultimate must have for every lazy girl isn't it? Just wipe and go to bed and zZz.. don't even have to bother with skincare unless your skin is super dry i guess? I wouldn't know with my mad oily skin

The [Oily Skin] cleaning sheets contain Glycerin to moisturize and tightens pores with witch hazel, while the [Normal to Dry] cleaning sheets hydrates your skin with ceramide and gives you a dewy, moist finish!

Thanks Mandom for these awesome products! (:

Sponsored Review: Ettusais December 2012 launch Part 01!

Saturday, November 24, 2012

Hello you, Happy weekend! 

It has been a very relaxing saturday, leon is away on tour with Leehom this weekend so I spent the entire morning snuggling in bed with.. my kindle! Heh I've completed [The Apocatary's Daughter] this morning as recommended by Melle, I'm soooo addicted to that book! Just bought a couple other titles by the author via my kindle. Have i mentioned how much i love my kindle!? Would die without it. hahah

Anyway, was invited by Ettusais to join them last evening for their latest product launches! Split this launch post into Part 01 & 02 because it's kinda lengthy. (:

Once an Ettusais girl, always an Ettusais girl! Always thrilled to see the new ettusais products and cannot wait to try them out! Here's the two new products:

I love how Ettusais always collaborate with all the kawaii characters! Like previously there was the Little Twin Star edition Lip Essence etc! Now they have launched the Lash Version Up, Kewpie Curl Power!

It's actually a mascara base! I've been addicted to applying mascara base before using a lengthening/volumizing mascara for years now, I've sworned by tubes and tubes of M.A.C Lash Primer, and my recent favorite is the ZA base mascara.

BUT, I've never tried a mascara base that is Black, and could be worn on it's own.
It also claims to lengthen and curl your fluttery lashes for the entire day, that way you'll really look like a Kewpie baby! Awww

Most of the time my lashes stay curled for a total of 2 mins before it "uncurls" itself and starts drooping down LOL fail.

On the top is my lashes after just 1 coat of Lash Version Up! It's so convinient, i've never used a mascara base that lengthens that well,  and best of all keeps my lashes curled! 

Oh and i'm also wearing the newly launched Ettusais Liquid Eyeliner in Brown, I'm a huge fan of the existing black liquid eyeliner and the brown one does not disappoint too. Gives a more natural look and it really doesnt budge even with my oily eyelids and all. :D

The one at the bottom is my lashes taken 6 hours later, still holding the "Kewpie Curl" and i did not spot any fibers fall and scattering on my cheeks either that happens when i use some lengthening mascaras.

Hello Kewpie Baby, I'm so glad the Ettusais Lash Version Up is going to be a pemenant item in the Ettusais product line, because i'm hooked on it and it's the latest addition to my favorite Ettusais product list! (:

Oh if you can't find it at Ettusais counters now, don't fret! It'll be in stores by December.
2nd part of the newly launched products blog post will be up soon.

Pak-tor time!

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Happy Weekend you guys! went dating with Leon the other day, it's really been awhile that we actually went to the malls to pak-tor! We're usually not the shopaholic types.  Leon shops online and buy his clothes and spend like $500-$600 at one go then wear for like months lol. We rather nua and home and watch endless movies.. we're just the super comfy and nua couple hhahaha it's amazing that we both have not turned into fat-asses.

Leon is hoooooorrible hahaha he loves feeding me to the brim, literally. Like full already still wanna feed me other stuff and more stuff.. and more.. anyway it's the way he so called "shows his love for me." lol 

Keeping the whole look simple since the red lippie is so strong, just a little cheeky teal liner at the outer corner of my eye. (:

I think i'm obsessed with my engagement ring! heh, althought it's been a little over a month since he proposed  (oh supposely part one of the proposal lol dunno when is part 2 coming leh.) but i still get a kick when i see the ring on my finger. Heh. How could a gorgeous ring like this change my whole world?! In a good way of course!

In the car waiting for my vainpot fiancé to be done hiao-ing. He will always stroll down casually and say things like "must shuai shuai for you ma.." etc! Zzz, don't make a lady wait yo!

Went for lunchie at Domanchi @ Ngee Ann City! Has passed by this restaurant gazillion times since i was in sec school maybe? But somehow we've not tried it so we decided to give it a go! i mean.. if it could survive being in ngee ann city with the mad expensive rent and all it should be pretty good right! 

Wasn't disappointed at all! We got the set which comes with 2 mains and the chicken is super tender and the sauce is so good!

Hahahah kinda got a shock when i saw this picture, i look EXACTLY the same as how i looked when i was 15ish. Same long straight hair with sideswept bangs, light-ish makeup with no falsies! LOL

Anyway i was kena forced by Leon to eat gelato! Die die ask me to pick a flavor so i picked moscato, which sucks!!! Hahahahaha So in the end my scoop of moscato gelato went straight into the bin.

OMG OMG OMG I saw on Lush's SG site that the Christmas season lush products are out so i had to make a trip there obviously!!!

Got the largest bottle of Snow Fairy, omg favorite shower gel EVER! Look at how much glitter there is!!!! Heh That's if you like all things sweet like me obviously. I so wanted to buy another botte to stock up since it's a seasonal product but leon was nagging nagging nagging so i put it right back on the shelf. T-T He's so naggy, BTH!

Got the Snow Globe Soap too, very fresh grapefruit-ish soap! i'mma huge fan of their body butter scrubs and Honey I Washed the Kids soap! Wanted to get more but didn't sniff anything that really suits me thou. Boo Boo.

Got a jar of R&B, Revive & Balance for my dreeeeeeadful hair. Having long hair suuuuucks, but everyone told me i'm looking pretty good with long hair so i should keep it, raaaah but i really gotta save my hairends somehow, the R&B smells pretty strong of orange blossoms and i'm so glad Leon love the scent! 

Oh do you know that Lush has a recycling policy, if you bring back 5 empty lush pots, you get a pot of fresh mask for totally FOC! Heh, i have a few about to be empty pots already, keep keep keep~

I'm such a huge fan of Lussssssssh! I told leon that our future place i can live without alot of things but i WANT A BATHTUB!!! Hahahahaha so i can buy shitload, truckload of Lush Bathbombs and soak myself to oblivion every. single.  night. AWESOME.

Dinner at House, Dempsey! Used to eat there all the time cos i work just upstairs. Heh the Squid Ink Paella is my absolute must order everything we're there! But this time round we were a wee bit disappointed because it seems like they reduced almost half the portion! Used to be able to share between 2 person and still feel mad full after that but now it's soooo little. Oh wells. Cut cost. -.-

Ordered truffles fries, lemongrass cooler if im not wrong, crispy thai beef salad (used to be soooooo good but now it's blah..) and a 1-metre long sausage! Leon is crazy! hahahaha can he don't "show his love for me" so much or not. 2 person order so much!

One fact about me, I can never seem to stay and maintain my figure! lol 

I've tried the healthy way; gymming and exercising, the yo-yo crash dieting which obviously is a recipe for disaster to start with haha. I'm sure lots of girls face the same problems too, to be honest I HATE dieting, I don't want to change my diet (doesn't help when your fiancé is the type who loooooooves feeding you all the good stuff!!) and having a full time job makes me so tired by the end of the day I'm just not in the mood to workout! Super bad combination really. Hahaha

I was glad when Bottomslim invited me to their Parkway Parade outlet for a session of their Slim & Slender Treatment!

Located beside Isetan, which is in a semi private little corner so we girls don't have to feel awkward or shy walking into a slimming centre!

Anyway, the receptionist kindly received me and they prepared a little sunflower bouquet for me awwww! How sweet are they?! Felt so loved! (:

They also gave me a bottle of their best seller - Nano X Plus Triple Gel
They used it after the entire treatment to help tone up the skin to reduce loose, cellulite prone skin and create a more contoured body shape! 

It feels super warm when applied, but not to the extent that it makes me really uncomfortable though.

Went in for my consultation and my consultant, Karen was so funny and entertaining! Hahaha Bottomslim is an expert in Tummy, thighs and legs slimming, which is prolly some of the hardest parts to slim down, especially if you workout you have to be very careful to work the right muscles if not your thighs become thunder thighs - super muscular etc?! Die! Hahaha!

So she explained to me at Bottomslim they believe in not changing our diets too much, because honestly sometimes it's just not realistic - how not to eat carbs etc during lunch time if you work in an office environment when most everything is rice, noodle, rice, noodle lol, how to avoid?!

So I explained to her that I’m the “meaty meaty” all over kinda girl so she took my stats and to my surprise, she mentioned that my cellulites weren't too bad! She just had to do some reshaping treatments for my jelly belly and thighs to give a more lifted and perky appearance! (:

After I changed into my robe and took my height weight measurements etc.. and all ready to start my Slim & Slender Treatment! (:

They opened the treatment room and I was like whoaaaaaa! So romantic! Hahahaha rose petals scattered all over like a honeymoon suite! Awwww felt so pampered like a queen. I'm the Luckiest Chick indeed!

Enjoyed a foot soak before the treatment to relax my body, how nice! 

The treatment then started with a vaccum treatment on my Tummy, followed by Thighs and calves trimmer, I actually expected to feel some sort of pain while doing these treatments but it was fairly painless, quite comfy actually.

Following was another machine with pads that were placed on my arms, belly, legs which felt really tingly; you know how your legs get all tingly when you just started running? Hahahah it's the exact feeling except that it's ALL OVER MY BODY. Hahahah 

Next, they gave me the Nova Slimming Mask and Intense Slim-Lite Therapy to tighten my skin & burn fats!

My consultant did another measurement all over again after completing the Slim & Slender Treatment..

Woots! I lost a total of 14cm! Of which they were from my belly area + thighs + calves! Just in one session! Can you imagine how much I'll be able to lose in say, 5 sessions?! 70cm?! lol!

Bottomslim outlets are conveniently located in Parkway Parade, Nex, Novena Square 2, Orchard Central.. and they are soon opening 3 more outlets in Ngee Ann City, City Square Mall and Jurong East!
