Unboxing My Birthday Present [New Video]

I meant to upload this video last week, but I was so busy that I had no time to finish it and then I got sick and couldn’t work for a few days.. so it’s a bit delayed, BUT it is still the month of my birthday, so I guess it’s not THAT late to share this with you.. 🙂

img_5414_copy I like the “hypnose drama” mascara very much and I use the normal, non-waterproof version. Their pencil eyeliner is pretty intense as well, so I do recommend you to check it out. I haven’t tried the purple color yet, so I’ll see if it’s love at first sight. The makeup remover is pretty nice as well, it doesn’t irritate my eyes (almost all the removers I tried before does) 🙁 I haven’t tried the liquid eyeliner and their “enhancing mascara base”, but I did read good reviews on them. Will keep you posted! 🙂img_5424_copy img_5434_copy img_5447_copyimg_5456_copy img_5464_copy img_5474_copyThe eyebrow pencil is great, it’s my current favorite for sure. I also like it because the color matching my real brow color, so it’s a very nice blend. I just tried the eye pencil and wow.. absolutely love it, very creamy but doesn’t smear once you apply it. Do check it out if you can!img_5508_copy img_5517_copyI’m very curious to check out the UD eyeshadow.. I did get a similar shadow before from Ardency Inn and had a photoshoot with wearing that color as well, so I’ll do a comparison when I have the chance. <3

Explore The Treasures | Part Three

Continuing my previous posts on interesting finds during my travels, I also would like to show you this little booklet I abducted from a Chinese restaurant/tea house.

It is so simple and sweet looking! Many, many “magazines” (??) like this one was displayed at the entrance of the restaurant, in a beautifully decorated room on a long, hand carved dining table. Free for grab magazines, calendars and even cd’s! (I have to search if I took a photo of that restaurant or not, because that place was quite magical).

Most pages are tan-colored and look like the “monks R us” special edition.. Perhaps news and development on chanting and such..?Continue Reading →

Explore the Treasures | Part Two

Yesterday I posted “explore the treasures” where I show you two cool things I’ve discovered during my trip to China. In this post, I will show you something strangely cool I found in Korea when I was performing in Busan!

katalin_4089There were some stores around my hotel I stayed at.. like Seven Eleven type, where you can purchase all the necessities you might need at any random hour of the day.. and of course I always can use a deck of card! Or at least that’s what I thought I was buying! Continue Reading →

Backstage with a Female Magician | Redesigned

If you are an official bunny (aka subscriber) of my blog, you probably noticed that this place has changed recently quite a bit. I had different sites the past 15 years now (or maybe even more?) and this year I was keep getting this feeling.. it’s time for another change. One of the reasons was to show you my photo series (through the lens) in a bigger, better format. I’m hoping, with this new design, it’s going to be much more enjoyable and also simpler! The template itself is a bit buggy.. not everything works the way I would love it, but I’m hoping, all the new posts are going to appear flawless. (or at least close to perfection) 🙂

i’m not showing of.. this was the only image I’ve found of my previous template 🙂

I’m looking forward of your thoughts and comments on the new design and I hope you like it as much as I do!
