Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Duo (Comments Off)
I don’t know about you long haired vixens, but there is nothing worse than having loose hair whip around your face when you’ve got lip gloss on on a particuarly windy day. The strands of hair just stick to your lips and drag gloss across your face and forget about casually flicking hair out of the [...]
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain (Comments Off)
Like a magpie atttracted to shiny things, my eyes were immediately fixated upon the trademark golden cap of YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain as I walked through the department store and browsed the aisles for the latest makeup tool to add to my already heaving makeup bag. I have heard rave reviews of this [...]
Likas Papaya Soap! (Comments Off)
In a previous post, I discussed my enthusiasm at having discovered Skinetica Anti-Blemish and how, as part of my beauty regimen, it has improved my skin hugely. Allow me to introduce you to another find which has rightfully earned its place in my bathroom cabinet and has worked miraculous wonders on my acne-prone skin. My skin has [...]
Skinetica Anti-Blemish (Comments Off)
Skinetica Anti-Blemish is one of those products that Glossybox has introduced me too late last year around October. I was sent a sample size of the bottle and it had been sitting in my beauty drawer for a while. My skin had been clear for some time due to my recent discovery of the AMAZING papaya [...]
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish – Gold Deposit (Comments Off)
One of the great things about being an identical twin is being able to snoop in her makeup bag whenever I come to visit and knowing that whatever colour or product looks good on her is bound to suit me too! And it’s like an instant shopping fix in her bathroom as I test out various [...]
Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss – Pink Sequin (Comments Off)
I am an addict for lipglosses. Lashings of it…lips drooping in the stuff…you can bet your lil tush I apply it every hour on the hour, regardless of whether I need it or not. But not just any lip glosses. Those who have been following my blog will know that I have always been an [...]
Yummy, Delicious Caramel Toffee Fudge Protein Cupcakes! (Comments Off)
Yes, you heard right. CARAMEL TOFFEE FUDGE protein cupcakes! With a healthy twist of course! I may be two weeks out from my next competition, but I refuse to be miserable with my food. Rather, I like to be inventive with my food and get creative in the kitchen. I add spices and herbs to [...]
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream (Comments Off)
Yes, I know what most of you are thinking…..has City Geisha been living under a rock? Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream has been around for quite some time now, if I am not mistaken, for nearly a decade so it’s hardly a “new” product but I have only just discovered it this year and wish [...]
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre – Ebloui (Comments Off)
Will my fellow Geishas ever forgive me for leaving you hanging, salivating after my next posting, waiting with sheer disgust at how nothing new is posted every time you log on to my blog? I am SORRY. I know that I did say I was going to compete in October at my next bodybuilding [...]
Banana Toffee & Candied Cherry Protein Bars (Comments Off)
I love making my own little treats…treats to satiate my sweet tooth when the afternoon slump hits me at work or when I need a fast acting energy boost before a workout… a good portion of my Sunday afternoons involves prepping all my meals for the week ahead to take to work as well as making [...]
Miss Galaxy Universe! (Comments Off)
Wow. Where has City Geisha been???? Think it’s been over 3 months, nearly 4 months since my last post? Phewww! I do apologise with all sincerity for my absence and silence but there is a very good reason for this. I competed on stage for the first time in my life in a fitness/beauty pageant [...]
Going Back To My Roots (Comments Off)
Felt like going back to my humble Vietnamese roots tonight and rustled up some fresh summer rolls. Dead easy to make. 10 minutes from the time you fill up the kettle for your pot of boiling water to that first moreish morsel in your gob. Rice paper Small amount of rice noodles (keeping my carbs [...]
Bioderma Crealine H20 Solution Micellaire (Comments Off)
Hooray to my lovely sister in Paris who has introduced me to another fab French product! Bioderma Crealine H20 Solution Micellaire! Ubiquitous in virtually all French pharmacies and supermarkets, Bioderma has pioneered micellar solutions. Without getting all technical and boring the heck out of you, these solutions invole micro-emulsion to eliminate dirt and makeup. Think of [...]
Avene Cicalfate Drying Repair Lotion (Comments Off)
I recently experienced a really bad breakout and some serious irritation from another product so my wonderful little sister from Paris sent me the following lotion to my rescue, having raved about this miraculous product for some time now. Totally desperate, I used it and it’s worked wonders. Avene Cicalfate Drying Repair Lotion (40ml) The Cicalfate [...]
Carrot & Prawn With Coriander Patties (Comments Off)
In my quest to follow a Paleo lifestyle as best as I can, I have created the following dish that will satiate your appetite, fill you up on protein and taste oh so wonderful. It only takes 5 minutes to prep and in they go in the oven for 35-40 minutes, turning them over halfway [...]
Courgette Fritters (Zucchini) – Wheat, Gluten, Dairy Free (Comments Off)
As of January 2nd of this year, I have embarked on a Paelo lifestyle. That’s right, I eat like a caveman, err….cavemoman to be exact. I’m sure this sounds bizarre to folks who aren’t on the Paleo bandwagon (or haven’t even heard of it). Still, the last thing I want to do is to lecture my friends [...]
Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner (Comments Off)
I’ve never really experimented with Stila makeup before but upon browsing the makeup stands at my local department store recently, I decided to give Stila a chance and picked up their eyeliner, Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Moray. A beautiful shade of taupy green with a hint of gold shimmer, subtle to the eyes [...]
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre – Illusoire 83 (Comments Off)
I just want to state, first and foremost, that I love my boyfriend, not because he is a kick-ass boyfriend (because he is) but because he pays attention to the little important stuff that I like, such as makeup and beauty products. And in a recent bid to find out what presents to offer me [...]
Spinach and Quark Cheese Tartlet with Rosemary (Comments Off)
Happy 2012! For many of you, your resolution is to lose weight and/or eat better. But this does not necessarily mean having to stick to boring salads and tuna for days on end! Oh no! Why not try this following baby out? Light, yet comforting and satisfying, with bold flavours of rosemary and black pepper seeping [...]
I was in a creative mood last night…not in the culinary sense for once but for trinkets fashioned with my bare hands to create my latest masterpiece =) I realised I hadn’t done much in a while and I have rather been neglectful of this little passion of mine. So there I was, sat in [...]
I have recently discovered Khobez, which is a pre-cooked flatbread common in Middle Eastern countries. Incredibly versatile in that you can use it to mop up the delicious juices of your tagine, fill it up with your favourite ingredients for a quick lunch time wrap or, as I have discovered tonight, use as a [...]
