Jumbleberry crumble love.

After watching Nigella, I was extremely inspired to make this jumbleberry crumble!

J and I ran out to get frozen berries and flour. Well I got those while J shopped for our daily necessities like actual groceries, veggies and bread etc.

It's extremely easy to make the crumble!

First, 100gm of self raising flour. Actually the recipe says flour then add baking powder. Oh well.

[Actually, make more crumble. I actually ran out of crumble because the ramekins I bought were not standard size. Crumble can be kept in the freezer for future crumbly needs!]

50gm of butter + 3 tablespoons of sugar. Just mix the lot and run them through your fingers like you're brushing away crumbs. The crumble should really look like coarse sand, not paste and gooey like. Freeze the crumble mix for a bit while you prepare the berries. Time to heat the oven to 220 degrees.

Enough berries + just a dash of corn starch + splash of wine/moscato/rum (this is my twist because we all need a little alcohol don't we).

This must be magic.

Hello world from my iPhone!

No longer do I have to procrastinate and try to write outside of office hours when most of my rage and inspiration have waned.

Whoopee!

P.s. I'm easily excitable like that. I'm posting while in a bus!

Temptation: Motorcycle bag in all colors of the rainbow.

I've been browsing Gmarket very frequently and I'm once again enamored with the Balenciaga motorcycle bag. I had a pink one when I attended uni but due to a very unpleasant incident back in 2006, it was taken from me.

Anyway I'm itching to get a new one again! Isn't it pretty?


I know they are not the real McCoy but who cares?! I can't decide between a dove grey, mint, purple grey, red, deep mint .....



So many choices! Some colors are only available for motor bags of another size. It's a little too big for me.



Le sigh. I am thissssssssssssss tempted to get one! Love that it's quite cheap (<$30) and almost guilt-free shopping.

Just the right amount.

Do you sometimes wonder if you are using all your skincare and bath products correctly? Sometimes too much of a good thing can be bad. Too much night cream doesn't mean all the goodness gets absorbed into the skin. It ends up on your pillowcases and all the bacteria, oils and product can wreck havoc on your skin!

All the products we use cost a pretty penny and we want them to last as long as possible while working their magic on us. And Real Simple has a pretty nifty guide on how much is just right!


On the right: Moisturizer With SPF
Serving size: A quarter (near right).

On the left: Under-Eye Cream
Serving size: Half a pea for each eye.

Temptation: Chanel Illusion D'Ombre eyeshadows.

I'm obsessed with Chanel Illusion D'Ombre. I saw this poster during one of my mall trips and I was in love. So soft and so beautifully made up.


The range was designed by Peter Philips for Chanel Fall 2011

New shoes and my hoarding tendencies.

New flats from G2000 sale!



Truth be told, I bought them about 2 months ago and they were extremely affordable at $25 a pop!
