Anyway! Enough with the small talk. This is where we tell you about some cool things we've discovered this month, be it beauty related, book related, food related or whatever. Enjoy!
I even converted Lisette to it! Raw fish that is actually marinated in lemon to make it cooked. So tender, so juicy! We went out for a delicious brunch on Sunday at Marine Parade Deli and I was so excited to see Ika Mata on the menu. Lisette said I was disgusting but then after tasting the Ika Mata she remembered how awesome I am and vowed to trust my judgement always.
Kale Chips! Yeah I know, call me a hipster but I have to say I am totally hooked on Kale Chips! The Lover-man was hugely opposed to the idea at first. I don't blame him though, I mean once you have juiced kale and tasted its vile venom, it is hard to believe that kale can be used in any dish without tainting it with it's miserable bitterness. But low and behold! Who knew that if you just slathered on some olive oil, sprinkled on some salt and popped it in the oven for 10 minutes, its dark evil leaves would turn into crispy delicious chips! Who knew indeed!
I have also gone wild for Yoghurt Story! It is the coolest little self serve frozen yoghurt bar, where you pick your own fro-yo flavour - I heart the natural one with a little swirl of chocolate flavour on top - then you go for the toppings - Chocolate sauce and Strawberries for me! It is faboo!. Me and my boys head out there at least once a week for our frozen yoghurt dates. So much fun!
Mariana and I saw an interestingly disturbing film together in the weekend called The Paperboy, starring Zac Efron (sawoon!), Nicole Kidman and Matthew McConaughey. Kind of gross, but oddly appealing in a Game of Thrones kind of way. Oh My God! Game of Thrones! Eeeek! The anticipation is killing me! Thank God the next episode is on tonight! #longlivetyrion
'Her' - you know the one where the guy falls in love with his computer. That was a good movie. It stars the formerly retired Joaquin Phoenix.
I am currently in the process of reviewing skincare by Osmosis and I am in love with their Quench daily moisturiser! It is so delicious smelling and hydrating I can't get enough of it. Watch this space for my full review very soon!
I went a little nuts over at Beauty Joint a few weeks ago and amongst many other things, I bought my first ever Lime Crime lipstick! It is sooo pretty! Who says it's bad to judge a book by it's cover! Let me tell ya, Lime Crime's range of delish opaque lipsticks are every bit as fab as the gorgeous, sparkly-unicorn adorned outside! I went for Airborne Unicorn - the first step toward a very large collection me thinks! Next up - Great Pink Planet!
Nude by Nature. I have this pack that has everything in it that I need and I carry it around like it is my newborn baby. Mineral cover? Check. Cream blush? Check. Mineral Primer? Check. Lipgloss? Check.
Mariana: Songs about drunk women. For example 'Stay High' by Tove Lo.
Lisette: While I am not a huge fan of Miley Cyrus's music (though Wrecking Ball does hold a special place in my heart) but I am a HUGE fan of this cover of We Can't Stop by Scott Bradley and The Postmodern Jukebox. It is safe to say that this cover is about 10 times better that the original by Ms Cyrus. But hey why not let you decide for yourself. Check out both versions below and you be the judge! And just to be clear, I am not comparing the videos, thoouugh, I don't think Miley would win my vote on that front either!
