Sex you might regret having... For the rest of your life!

People often say that if a man has a one-night stand, he'd be celebrating his victory the following day and will receive high fives from friends.

But if a woman has a one-night stand, she either must have been looking for more, and was fooled, or she made a terrible mistake.

That, however, is not always the case.

Twenty-year-old Adrian* used to be a frequent clubber and was at this dance club one Friday night with his bunch of friends, where he met sexy, flirtatious Jane. They hit it off almost instantly and she followed him back to his place for a one-night stand.

Adrian woke up the next morning with a terrible hangover to find Jane already gone. He wasn't bothered, of course. I mean, when a guy and a girl meets at some place (usually dance club) and decides to have a one-night stand, the next day either party would leave without saying anything and that's pretty normal.

It wasn't until he stepped into his toilet, to find these words, printed on his mirror, in bright red lipstick - WELCOME TO AIDS!

Adrian stood there shocked, and at the same time, hoping it was only a joke she wanted to pull on him. He nonetheless got himself tested, and the results came back proving him to be HIV positive.

His world came crumbling down and Adrian had no idea what to do. He didn't know who she was. In fact, he was so tipsy that night, he could barely even remember how Jane looks like.

I mean, if you're hooking up with someone for one night of sex with no strings attached, it's only normal not to exchange any personal info with them so they can't track you down and stalk you later.

It was the same with Jane. He didn't have her phone number, let alone any information about her. Even if he did though, there was nothing that he could do to turn back time.

I feel sorry for Adrian. He's only the same age as I am, and he had such a long way to go in life... Until he encountered Jane.

Imagine yourself in his shoes, knowing that you only have ten years more or so to live... Just because of that few hours of pleasure. That one-night stand must be the one thing he regretted doing for the rest of his life. His life is ruined overnight just like that.

Jane must have been transmitted with AIDS by some ruthless bastard, and was out to take revenge. Adrian could possibly be just one of her many other victims. And may I add that there are plenty out there like Jane? You'll never know if the next cute guy/girl you hit at the club is HIV-infected or not.

So people, before you let yourself lose control, think twice about the consequences. What's the fun of banging some stranger for a couple of minutes of pleasure, and taking the risk of being infected with STDs?

Spot the difference!

Can you spot any difference?

Anyone who gets the right answer gets a virtual *hug* from me! :P 

The answer is:  *drumrolls*

*jeng jeng jeng*


You never knew that lashes could still grow right?

Well, technically, they can't grow any longer but with Ardell, it's possible!

This product is Ardell's Brows and Lashes Growth Accelerator serum. ;)

You can apply it on your brows for thicker lines if you wish...

Or apply on your lashes for longerrrrrrrrr lashes...
Admit it, it's something we all girls want, isn't it? ;)

I love longer lashes, and after using Ardell serum for a month almost every night (sometimes I forget), my lashes really did grow! The difference is specifically vast when I apply mascara. It's like, WHOAH!!! I iz so happy! :D :D :D

Before - 9th October 2010  | After - 9th November 2010

Note to self: take picture of lashes after applying mascara! You know I've told myself that like a million times already, but I keep forgetting. :$

So, you ask, where can you get this magical serum?

Where else if not...

Now I wish if only I can apply such a serum like that so my hair can grow long faster too. I will diligently apply, if there's really such a thing as a LONGER HAIR SERUM.

In a blink of an eye. ;)

*In-a-Blink Instant Eyeshadow*
(Product review proudly sponsored by Supermodel's Secret)

Before I used the instant eyeshadow, I thought to myself, "Aiseh, why the heck do I need this for?" I have my eyeshadow palettes and they're good enough.

But after my first try with the instant eyeshadow, I fell head over heels with this product. It really can come in handy, especially when you're in a rush to head out, and you need a light make-up on.

I know it's a REALLY bad habit but I'm the sort of person who'd rather spend an extra 10 minutes snoozing, then get up realising "OH SHIT, I'M GONNA BE LATE GODDAMNIT!" :$

They come in 5 different shades, with 3 color tones per pair as seen above.
Tropical Sunset | Glam Pink | Island Breeze | Pink Shimmer | Candy Pink

Can you see how pretty the glimmer is? I loikey!!! :D

The In-a-Blink instant eyeshadow really does work in a snap of a finger.
Remove eyeshadow sponge from packaging, apply, slide then blend...
And you're done! Yes, within 10 seconds! How awesome is that already? ;)

Among all the five shades available, I love the Glam Pink most! :D
Which explains why this review focuses mainly on this shade. *giggles*

I took close-up shots of my eyes to show you the after-application effect.
I hope my eyes do not appear scary especially with colored contacts on. :$

↑ Before blending | After blending ↓
After application, use your finger tip to gently blend the colors into each other so that it doesn’t look like the colors are so starkly lined. If you're in a hurry, you're good to go after a simple coat of mascara. I swear mascara does make a difference to your eyes!

But if you have the time, draw on a thin line of eyeliner on your upper lash line to define your eyes. Follow up with a coat of mascara on your curled lashes, or if you wish, you may apply fake lashes. They do contribute in making your eyes appear more attractive. ;)

Also, one of the best tips I've learnt is to line the inner corner of your bottom lash line with a bright sparkly colour to accentuate your eyes and give them some definition, as seen in picture (bottom right) above.

You may then finish off your look by applying a rosy cheek. And of course, before coating your luscious lips with lip gloss, don't forget your Carmex for moist lips all day long. ;)

When applying make-up, I reckon our eyes are one of the most important parts of the face. I believe your eyes are the focal point. If your eyes are perfect, then everything else will just seem to fall into place. And with the instant eyeshadow, you can never go wrong.

You'd probably want to get 2 pairs first to "test it out", but to be really frank, I reckon getting 12 pairs straight would be best. ;) Because I swear it can never be enough even with 12 pairs, especially if you wear make-up on a daily basis.

It is just so convenient and easy-to-apply that you'd want to use it again and again. And buying 12 pairs in a go saves you $$$ too! ;)

Think you'd want to stock some of these handy eyeshadows?
Or if you're going travelling, forgot the whole palette already! ;)

Just WIZZ it! ;)

I remember years ago, I attended this Add Maths tuition class with my best friend, Adam. There was a girl of whom Adam thought was REALLY CUTE.

Well, not until he saw her lift her arms, he spotted a patch of dark armpit hair and he turned to look at me with the word 'DISGUSTED' clearly engraved on his face.

Of course, underarm hair is perfectly natural but many, including myself, consider it embarrassing or unattractive. In fact, I think it is very unhygienic and without a doubt...


In contemporary culture, hair removal is a grooming practice and many would prefer to remove their underarm hair by shaving as it is less painful and it saves up more time.

There are other options like waxing or using the manual tweezer, but both that options can be quite painful to some. I've been using either the razor or the tweezer, depending on my mood. If I'm lazy, I'll just shave. If I feel a little more hardworking, I'd pluck.

While shaving the underarm hair is a quick and easy practice, maintenance for many people including myself, is daily. By using the manual tweezers to pluck, the hair takes longer to grow, but then again, it's such a tedious practice that my neck hurts.

But today, I need not worry no more. The invention of this "something" that's both fast and gentle, grabs and removes unwanted hair from the roots, keeping it from growing back for weeks.

This is the amazing invention: The WIZZIT!

The best part of the Wizzit is that you can use it anywhere on your body, even on those areas where you were afraid to shave, pluck or wax before.

I personally tried the Wizzit on my eyebrows just for the sake of it, and gosh, I almost distorted my eyebrows' shape. :P In my opinion, I'd recommend the Wizzit mainly for underarm hair.

I mean you don't want to Wizz your armpit then a couple of minutes later, move to Wizz your bikini line then after you're done... You start to Wizz your facial hair?!! Well, I wouldn't want to do that so my Wizzit is mainly to replace my razor.

The Wizzit has no blades, instead working as an epilator, gently removing hair and leaving you with smooth hair-free skin. It is specially designed to reach out and firmly hold on to the hair and its rotating action ensures a gentle removal of the hair shaft, root and all.

Trust me, it's not painful although the whirring sound might scare you a little. Having said that though, may I add that it does not remove 100% of your hair thoroughly as it gets a tad bit tricky when it comes to an uneven surface area. It'll take you a while to get used to getting the Wizzit on the correct angle, then you'll be Wizzing through like a pro.

What surprised me most was...

As a bonus they will also give you this handy manicure and make-up set to complete your grooming kit. It's all so easy, efficient, compact and handy that I personally strongly advise all of you girls to go get a set. ;)

Whatcha waiting for, babes? It's all in the package: a Wizzit that comes with a pouch PLUS a set of manicure and make up set all arranged to perfection in a carry case. ;)

Yes babes, all of that only for RM59. And that's inclusive of FREE postage! ;)

Kiss me? ;)

Do many of you in Malaysia suffer from dry, chapped lips? I know it's terrible to say that I can barely remember the condition of my lips when I used to live back home because all that bothers me right now is how dry it got after I've moved to Australia.

The locals here introduced me to the Lucas' Papaw Ointment which is said to have the ability to rescue chapped lips. Desperate to save my wrinkly looking cracked lips, I purchased a tube to test it out, but I'd say it's better at protecting rather than healing.

Sometimes, the Lucas' Papaw leaves my lips feeling even more dry than before use. I've also tried plenty of other lip balms, including the 'Lip Ice' range which is available at most pharmacies in Malaysia, but none actually worked in healing my lips. :(

Well, not until Michelle from Supermodel's Secrets approached me to review the CARMEX lip balm. Finally after 4 years, I've found the solution to my problem and my lips are now healed. I can't help but have it with me all the time now! :D

Wait, have you heard of CARMEX before? Did you know that CARMEX is one of the world's most loved lip balms in the United States with over 130 sold every minute? *gasps*

To be honest, I didn't know about its existence before this. :$ So when I read bout the CARMEX lip balm, I went "WOW!" again and again. You have no idea how excited I was waiting for my lip balm to reach me from Malaysia.

I got it a couple of months back, and it was in winter then. You have no idea how crazy my lips chapped during the winter so the Carmex definitely came in handy at the right time. I hate it when my lips chap and crack, cox it'll end up bleeding. :(

I must say it is one of the longest lasting lip balm I've ever tried. One good application of Carmex onto my lips and I’m pretty much set for the day. Well, not unless I eat something and start wiping my lips with serviettes, then I'd need to reapply.

When I first used the Carmex though, it stung a little when I applied because my lips were cracked back then. But now that the condition of my lips have improved, it doesn't sting anymore, and it really softens my lips!

I mean, of course the magic didn't happen overnight. I had to apply it often, and kept my lips moist at most times. I used it on a daily basis and it lasted me for slightly more than a month. I have since got myself another tube. *giggles*

At Supermodel's Secret, they have the Original Tube, Cherry Tube, Cherry Stick as well as the Strawberry Stick. For those who love sweet-tasting multi-purpose balms, the flavoured ones could simply be The One for you. ;)

I know for RM16 (inclusive of free postage), it might be a little bit more expensive than your typical pharmacy-available-lipbalm, but trust me, the Carmex is definitely worth the money. Once you try it, you'd be a Carmex-convert, like me! ;)

Unlike in the United States where Carmex is available at most drug stores, for as far as I'm concerned, they're not yet available at nationwide pharmacies in Malaysia. Thank god for Supermodel's Secret, they managed to source in supply for you babes! :D
