Bluebird Tea Co | Cherry Lips | Brighton

Brighton Bluebird Tea Co

If I could have any drink for the rest of my life, there's a high chance that I would say tea. This humble drink channels both my British lifestyle and my Chinese heritage and I am always on the search for new teas to add to my tea cupboard. Yes, I have a cupboard that is entirely dedicated to tea. So, when I took a wander down the North Laine and The Lanes of Brighton recently and stumbled upon an independent tea shop that had canisters upon canisters of tea on the wall, you didn't need to ask me twice to step over the Bluebird Tea Co's threshold.

Charlotte Tilbury | Penelope Pink | Lipstick Review

Ahhhh!! I have finally found it!!!

Having visited House of Tilbury a few months ago, I couldn't help myself but pick up something to walk away with. I knew I had picked up a lipstick but I couldn't remember which, and I always thought it was either Hepburn Honey or Bitch Perfect because I was toying with either one in the store. However, I couldn't find out which one I actually ended up buying purely because I blooming went and lost it! But having a rummage through my handbags the other day because I was looking for my camera, I indadvertedly found the lipstick. Turns out it was neither of the two - it was actually Penelope Pink.

Episode D: Driving

I have a confession to make. 

I'm 27 going on 28 and I still haven't passed my driving test. Well, I can drive. Just illegally. Not that I tell anyone this.

Beauty (mostly) Wishlist #1

I'm currently on a self inflicted spending ban because of Lent, so of course everything I want feels like it's more out of reach than normal. So to make the pain a little easier, I've put together a wish list of items I'm currently lusting over - feature Charlotte Tilbury, Canon and NYX Cosmetics.

Brighton | Photo Diary

There's something about Brighton isn't there?

I probably have a fonder attachment than most considering I studied down there, but six years on after graduation - cannot believe it's been that long! - it's always a nice place to go back to throughout the year. So that's what two of my friends and I did and went to Brighton for the day.

MAC Twig Lipstick

I did tell you I'm having a bit of a lipstick moment on my blog right now so I'm not going to start a good thing! I'm going to continue with my love affair with a MAC lipstick I have been loving recently - Twig.

LUSH Big Blue Bath Bomb

LUSH Big Blue bath bomb packaging

I rarely have baths favouring showers on many an occasion but when I do decide to have a bath, I instantly become a Chandler and will nearly always find myself plopping a LUSH goodie into the waters. My all time favouites include Avobath and Yuzu and Cocoa but I wanted something that was going to be relaxing and let me forget about everything for a while. LUSH Big Blue is apparently LUSH number 1 bath bomb product - how I had not tried it out before I'm not entirely sure so I made a mental note to make sure my next bath included a serving of this.

Episode C: Being Chinese

If you haven't figured it out by now, I'm Chinese. Kind of. I'm what we Chinese people a "BBC". No, I'm not named after a major global television company but BBC to the Chinese means "British Born Chinese" - Ronseal kind of term. And to celebrate Chinese New Year 2016, the latest instalment in my blog mini-series is Episode C: Being Chinese.

Jerk Chicken | Turtle Bay | Southampton

Whenever I travel somewhere new, I try to eat what is famous for that local area. Cornish pasties in Cornwall. Macaroons in France. Haggis in Scotland. On my recent getaway to Southampton, I quickly learnt that Soton doesn't really have an iconic food item and with no pier and therefore no seafood, we decided to pop into a fun looking restaurant called Turtle Bay.

Lucas Papaw Ointment | Review

Today I want to share my latest favourite product that has replaced many a chapstick and a lip balm including my favourite Nuxe Reve de Miel and Carmex Cherry. Lucas Papaw Ointment in its signature red packaging is a product not just for chapped lippies but also for burns and whatnot - it's a multiple use product and I'm so glad I picked it up.
