The Lipstick Diaries Entry #3: Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Cream

I think everyone knows about Australis Velourlips. How could they not? It's a great product - super matte, super-long lasting, and cheap enough to boot. There's a great variety of colours, not to mention the fact that Australis just announced the release of travel sized Velourlips in packets of five shades. How awesome is that?! It's great for people who love to travel, or for people who want more variety in lip shades, but don't want to fork out roughly $10 for each shade. And travel sized products are always JUST SO CUTE!

Melbourne Cheese Festival 2015 - Top 3 Picks

So, what does a young, female, Melbournian cheese connoisseur do in the middle of October? That's right, she looks forward to the first-ever Melbourne Cheese Festival, and spends the entire week leading up to it visualising all the cheese she'll get to stuff into her face.

MSG-Free Instant Mi-Goreng Recipe

It's Friday! Woot woot, I get to indulge in carbs because Fridays are our cheat days (it's also takeaway day since I'm the resident cook in this humble abode and even chefs need a break every now and then). Now, when I'm talking about carbs on cheat days, I don't mean I eat sugary treats and call it a day - no, it means I can lick my lips at the possibility of pasta, rice, or noodles. For lunch on Fridays, I like nothing more than to prepare myself a bowl of Mi Goreng. It's cheap and tasty, and takes no more than few steps and minutes to prepare, so I don't have to whip up a full meal, and wait ages for it to be ready.

The Lipstick Diaries Entry #1: e.l.f. Cosmetics Essential Lipstick

Welcome to the start of a new era! I decided to have a little bit of fun with my lipsticks. As some of my friends already know, I don't go out very often. Because of that, there's a huge pile of lipsticks in my makeup case that rarely gets used, no matter how much I love them. So, cue the Lipstick Diaries, where I get to wear, and show off, and review each and every lipstick that I have in my arsenal.

For The Glory Of Seitan!

Yesterday, I spent most of my time in the kitchen, whipping up a few batches of seitan. The diet I've embarked upon requires me to consume a substantial amount of protein, and what better source of protein than seitan? Vital wheat gluten is roughly 75% protein, compared to 10% of protein in extra-firm tofu, less in softer tofu.

Crispy Baked Peanut Tofu With Cauliflower Rice

As you all learned the other day, I'm on a low-carb diet to shed some fat. My partner too wants to slim down, so his support with his diet means so much to me. However, I feel that talking about my journey will help me stay on the road to achieving my dream weight by December. My short-term goal is to shed 8 kilograms so I can reach 60kg.

President Double Cream Brie

I've put myself on a low-carb diet, and I've had to drastically cut down on my cheese consumption. This means I won't be able to do a cheese post for quite a while. It sucks, I know, but after finding a rip in the waist of a pair of three-month old tailored jeans, it was time for me to reassess my foodie habits.
