Meet Lisa Eldridge

Lisa Eldridge

To those who haven't heard of this amazing lady, she is one of the noted international makeup artist who has also helped developed a few major cosmetic brands like No.7 and Shiseido. Celebs like Cameron Diaz, Liz Hurley, Mischa Barton, Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, Cate Blanchet, Demi Moore and Selma Hayek are seeking her skillful hands to groom them.

And what's more amazing, she now has a blog that pretty much explains 101 makeup tips and trust me, she's no ordinary makeup enthusiast. She's the crème de la crème!

She kinda reminds me Nigella Lawson - her British accent and her looks, ain't it? Watching her videos, I love how she intuitively explain about everything, almost like a mother to daughter sharing trade secrets on beauty.

This is one of her videos that makes me go....what was that!!?? Where have all the pimples go?



Watch this and tell me what you think :) To watch more of her video and tips, go to http://www.lisaeldridge.com/video/

Crazy Love for Michael Buble? He's back in Malaysia!

Crazy Love!

I know this is a bit of an old news, Michael Buble is coming to Malaysia for the second time for his Crazy Love Tour this March 13 2011 starting at 8.30 PM at Stadium Malawati, Shah Alam, Selangor (not Kuala Lumpur). His first show in Malaysia was sometime in 2004 or 2005 where he was quite new and unknown, promoting his self titled album. Too bad I wasn't able to crash for his first show...

...but this time, I will!

When I first got to know the news a few days before Christmas, I reserved the tickets online (http://www.jagtickets.com.my) for me and my friend immediately. Since the ticketing system was done manually (I've to call in the hotline a few times to ask for the status), I've only received the confirmation about 3-4 days later. But I got to applaud the staff for being friendly and helpful during the process :D



Tickets are SO expensive! Ticket range from RM250 to RM1098. With less kaching in my pocket, I could only afford RM435 seat. Even with 10% Enrich member discount from Malaysia Airlines, one ticket costs me RM399.50 for B3 seat (side seating, 2nd row).



Okay, let's just hope for the best this March. This picture above was taken in Aviva Stadium, Dublin for the recent Crazy Love tour. Looks very similar with the Shah Alam's seating. But hey, I got to be honest, this looks very much like a football match!


Here's another photo proof. Yikes!


Taken by a fan in Michael Buble's FB site.

Man, I need telephoto lens to get a closeup of this from where I will be seated. Let's hope for a worthwhile performance :) GO BUBLE!

Heads up Head gear Lovers, Buff is HERE!

A few of my mad hatter collection from santa hats, hippie hat, spider-man's mask, wool hats, caps, wig, bandana, headband, reflective sports headband, miniature hat...

Friends who know me would know that I have a crazy fascination on hats, bandanas, berets, headband and all sorts of head gear stuff. So one fateful day on early 2009, I bumped to this optical shop called Peak Vision in Garden's Midvalley and saw dozens of collection from Buff. I was totally blown away by what these babies can morph to. Balaclava, headband, cap, pirate, hairband, blind chicken (haha!) and heck, it can be a hijab too!

Oh yes...but reality hits me when I saw the price tags...RM89 is the cheapest one. Yikes! I convinced myself that if I have one good reason to buy this, I'll definitely grab it in a heart beat.

Enough said...I finally bought one, which is the Original Buff for RM89. This headgear would make a useful winter accessories for my trip to Seoul this month. There are a few different types of Buff available from Polar buff which has extended fleece on it, UV protected, Nat geo motifs and many more. I'd figure that the original one is more versatile and can be used for hot and cold weather.

So let's start the unpacking moment with me, shall we?


Well, with big price on the tag, they at least made an effort on the packaging :)


Moment of truth...dum dum dum.

...wait for it.


Tada!

[Update] What I've used this for in Seoul:
- Face/nose mask during the cold, windy winter...can be a hanky in disguise too, lol!
- When indoors, I made it to a hairband!
- Sleep mask when on board...a bit tight on my head though.

Enjoy the testimonial video below from the Buff users. Also check out this convincing written review.
