I always see this cafe/restaurant while driving down Bukit Timah Road and it seems very promising,
though I'm not exactly sure what cuisine does the restaurant specialise in..

Until a weekend when I met up with my university mate- Eileen for a weekend brunch,
she arranged it to be at that Restaurant- Choupinette, a french restaurant, and mentioned that they serve really good brunch!

outfit of the day- a casual stripey skirt from popcherrycrush,
perfect for the weekend out.


i love the decor within the place- very cozy and cottage-looking,
and their eggs benedicts are one of the best in my opinion actually!
They have two choices- the eggs royal (with smoked salmon) and the normal ones, and I think both are equally good.
It's a lil pricey, so if you are willing to splurge, it's worth a try! ;)

Being a bubble tea fan, I'll never fail to grab a cuppa drink whenever I pass by any.
Gong Cha recently has a new drink that is probably seasonal, if i'm not wrong,
and I found my new favourite drink- Strawberry Calpis with aiyu jelly. :)

waiting for my order and am wearing pearlavish's black work dress with a unique detailing at one side of the shoulder,

Taste a bit like yakult mixed with yogurt, very refreshing!

Ever since hurhur has his work place changed to Orchard,
I have been going there to meet him for dinner and one of our favourite places is none other than Itacho.
The queue is always awfully long and i am sure you guys can spot it while walking down through the walkway from ion to wheelock.

Fortunately I was there slightly earlier than dinner time to miss the lunch crowd and we didn't have to queue too long. ;)

In my electric blue dress from Pearlavish, which has an adjustable waist design and the material is comfortable on the skin,

Here are some lovely new outfits of the week that you might want to check them out in stores!

Got this lovely piece from MyGlamourPlace, and I always think summer yellow is a nice colour!
Brings out a bubbly vibe of yourself, and brightens up your outfit for the day. ;)

MyGlamourPlace does have a lot of dainty and demure outfits if you realised, and this is another of my pick!
Love the combination of the lilac and white, and the pleats design at the bottom of course ;)

A mini black dress from popcherrycrush that hugs you well at your areas,
and no need for heels to look lengthy but a pair of comfortable pumps for a casual day out.

If you are looking for something different apart from our usuals,
this is a vintage looking classy piece from pearlavish that you might want to check it out,
looks really unique especially with the lace design!

Get Warm for Winter – Ministry of Retail

It's two day to Christmas, and here would be my virtual gift to you-
A post with massive photos specially prepared with efforts of editing & writing :p

As you know, i just came back from Korea a week back and it was freezing madly for me (i'm quite afraid of cold),
and the temperature there was about 0 to 5 Degrees, I'm pretty sure it is definitely below that now- about 0 to -10 Degrees Celsius.
With that in mind,  I bet you are actively looking for coats, in particularly pretty and stylish coats,
there you go, here's one fashion boutique - Ministry of Retail that has exactly what you are looking for. ;)

They are in fact a fashion boutique that brings to you quality apparels that are from Korea,
(I must say, Koreans have absolutely great fashion sense and almost everything that is made from Korea has at least a minimal good quality),
and all designs in Ministry of Retail are imported exclusively,

These apparels are following the fashion trends of Korea,
at the same time, Ministry of Retail will focus on picking out those nicest of the lot and definitely, ensuring quality from the picks as well.
I must say a great thank you to them – for letting me have a share of the fashion coats/clothing fix for my Korea trip or so,
and for being so efficient with their customer service (coats came right in time for my trip!).

Not just that, they do have a wide range of Korean fashion accessories,
apparels that are worn inside of our coats or for our normal local weather.
I was so carried away with looking for outer coats that it slipped off my mind that i would need inner wear as well,
given that I would also be indoors for half/most of the time in Korea!

Here are what I got from their online boutique:
I love everything about this outer coat actually.
How unique and military-troops looking it is, the two flaps on the shoulders, the rich blue colour, the cutting as well as the material etc.
Quality is good and if you prefer a shorter coat, this will be a nice choice!


I fell right in love with this piece straight away while browsing through their site,
a great piece to be worn as the layer before my coat.

Don't mind the puffiness in some of the pics above, because i have like 4 layers of clothing (well, not that thick ones!) below in fact.
Knew it's a pretty piece and cool thing that the cut still gave me some shape especially at the waist given that I had so many layers.
Material is good and I can also wear this in Singapore!

Got this military blazer for normal wear as well.
It feels better than the pictures for sure, and i love the shoulder pads and the thickness cum quality of this piece.
In my opinion, the thickness can be worn for weather around 18 Degrees Celsius,
or if you are afraid of cold like me, can wear just in our shopping malls!


Last but not least, you wouldn't want to miss out this real stylish blazer too.
Material is not as thick as those winter wear, and definitely fits our local Singapore weather – in office or on the roads etc.
Love the trendiness of this!

You might want to take a look at what they have in stores for you,
but they would also like to extend two promotions to you!
1. Get $5 shopping credits when you sign up with this account HERE (can sign up and use it next time)
2. Free The Faceshop Hand Cream worth S$9.90 with purchase of S$100 or more (while stocks last)

Enjoy shopping babes!

I got my nails done at trusty Pink Parlour a few days ago for Christmas!
Would have done up a more fanciful design but was rushing off to town,
so did a simple shimmery shade with a light pink tone instead.

It's always nice to see the usual staff again for my frequent nails & waxing appointment
and thank you to them for rushing with me. ;)

always feeling pampered at their store.

Waxing time!

Feeling pretty in pink in my dress from Fash Mob too!
It's a pretty piece with a waterfall design in front, hence the unique layering at the bottom part. ;)

The weekend before I flew off was a Sunday Shopping momsie & daughter time in town.
Been a long while since momsie and I did that, and nonetheless, it was an awesome and fruitful day out.


We began with a family lunch as I was craving for dimsum!
Too bad my sister couldn't join as she had to go to school for curriculum.

I have a thing for flowy straight cut bohemian dresses actually,
and this piece is one of my favourite at Fash Mob.
Paired it up with my comfy sandals plus a scarf and I am ready for shopping all day long ;p

Love custard buns!!! <3
I'll at least have two every time.

If you find the background familiar,
you probably can see that I have been visiting town quite a few times recently!

I ran a short errand in town on this particular Friday,
dressed up my favourite of all in Fash Mob's recent collection – military looking one-piece cream dress.
I quite sure it's a gorgeous piece given that i got stopped by a fashion photographer from NY, complimenting the dress sense,
and snapped a couple of pictures!

Would love to get those pictures up here but I have not received them! :(

Anyways, after my errand,
I met up with my parents and hurhur to head over to a new Japanese Restaurant for dinner.

Am a big fan of Tempura(s) and got to know that Ten Tempura is one of the Japanese restaurants that specializes in it.
It is located at The Central @ Clarke Quay, good that it's away from the hustle and bustle, 
and it would be hard to miss it because it's situated conveniently at level one.

I like it that it's a casual dining place, a pretty cozy and relaxed restaurant settings.

Luckily we reached slightly earlier than dinner time, it was crowded by then!

We ordered two mains, but quite a number of sides dishes to try as it looks really appetizing in the menu,
and here are a few that will be a must-try if you are popping over:

1. Japanese egg wrapped with pickles, lettuce, fish eggs, and crispy tempura crumbs.

2. This is a side dish too, a pretty small bowl but I love the texture of the noodles (it's something like a thin udon and has a chewy texture) and the lightness yet tasty sauce accompanying it.
Special thing would be the tempura crumbs sprinkled on top of the noodles. Nice!

3. of course, we are at Ten Tempura and it's needed to try their tempura(s)!
Prawns are juicy and what's special and different from others (explained by the chef and tasted by myself) is the sauce that comes with this.
it tasted rather different from the usual dip and some sort like a combination of savoury cum sweet sauce,
definitely tastier after pouring it all over the tempura.

Let the pics do the talking!


And that's the boss of the restaurant! ;)

Prices are around $15 to $20 for a set meal,
and here's the address if you are a fan of japanese food, tempura and are keen to give it a try!

I finally completed my Christmas Shopping just yesterday in town,
and at the same time, i visited my usual-good-o Salon Vim for a hair cut, colour and treatment just in time for Christmas!

Here's John, my dedicated stylist whom I have been going to for all my hair troubles for almost 2 years!

Got myself a Loreal Spray from the Salon after John's recommendation as I needed one to hold my curls as well as my usual straight but curled ends.
He used it on me after the cut and I like the lightness of it, will try it on my hair this weekend!

And a pic of my done-up hair ;)

Love how refreshed and healthy looking the hair is after the afternoon,
and I really need to master how to curl it at the ends like how John does it for me. heh

After my hair I went to find Leney as she was working at Mandarin Gallery for this week,
Had my shopping all done while waiting for her to end work before we grabbed a bit together.

if you are wondering where did I get this pair of black platform wedges,
they are from and are my current favourite pair in the shoe-drobe! :p
Love the platform in front which makes the wedge more comfortable, and it's light too,
wore this for shopping even!

And given that it's around 10pm, we decided to pop over to Javiers @ cine leisure (Which closes at 11pm)
for our delayed dinner.

Pretty sumptuous for a late night dinner, oops.

We are definitely going back for more,
it's S$8.90 for a plate with a bowl of soup, and you can literally fill anything up from their entire row of hot, cold, raw, cooked and fried food.
But the thing is you can only fill it ONCE.
Quite hilarious to see some plates that are extremely full, like an ice-kachang piling on the plate. heh

Macky’s Snupped!

It's the Xmas week and I bet you guys are going around shopping for gifts for friends and family,
and i am no exception.. Except that I got myself somethings along the way as well. *Grins*

I recently discovered something cool and lovely, and it's for Macky (yes, my macbook! It's time for it to be in style. :p)
So I actually ordered a Christmas gift online for it,
and the gift has arrived right at my door steps a few days ago.

It's a brand new piece of sleeve that I customized online with ,
all the way from the design, colour and size of the sleeve, and as you know me,
I just couldn't resist the polka dot designs and i customized it in my favourite colour- RED!
Was also given the choice of customizing the sleeve inside, and got it in polka dots design too but in black for the contrast.

Am completely loving this new sleeve!

Got it fitting instead of slightly oversized as well(so as to put my mouse, cable and all together),
and at the same time, i got a choice of wanting handle or not and decided to go with it for convenience!
This Christmas pressie for myself is definitely a great gift given that I always bring Macky out with me around,
and I just did that over the weekends while waiting for hurhur to meet me for a shopping trip together.

Love chilling at starbucks with Macky and a cuppa green tea latte, with a plate of cheese bagel with Philadelphia cream cheese dip.

Am in the Xmas mood too and am decked in a colour block flare bottom red dress from Fairebelle.
The contrasting black sides definitely help to give the "slimming" effect upon wearing, and that's the catch of the dress. ;)

More outfits of the week!

Here's another of my favourites! A white blazer with black collar design from Fairebelle,
and it's goes well with just a simple black tank dress inside, am loving the effortless chic style!


Not just chicness, but Fairebelle has this dainty chiffon dress that comes right in time for your gatherings.
The heartshaped top is pretty flattering for the chest area, and I like the layering at the bottom – great for feasting without worrying for the tummy! :p

Celebrate Xmas with Shopping!

December is an absolutely busy month for most of us,
such as birthdays (yes, leney, hurhur and caleen’s birthdays are all coming!) and Christmas gatherings,countdowns,
and with that in mind, I need to shop for gifts very soon!

I do enjoy Christmas exchange every year and I suppose the catch is to see who gets the best cum interesting gift,
and I suppose it will be a helluva lot of fun if everybody gets something really unique.  
And so for that said, I used to visIt takashimaya departmental to check out the gifts (they have really cool stuff),
But I think it is becoming a lil common because quite a number of people shop there for gifts as well!

So for this year, I am gonna get something from somewhere else. I need to get a few,
so a couple of them would be from Jipaban-
they have interesting stuff that I have never seen around in shops in fact.
Best part is that they have a flash sale with all items from weekly gift guide at 10% discount,
(comes right in time cuz it’s only a week plus to Christmas!!) for just 24 hours on 19th to 20th December,
 especially for those who don’t have time to shop, don’t miss it!

And this is the last gift guide sale for Christmas as we are 5 days away till Christmas!

Weekly gift guide is an entire collection prepared specially for Christmas with a mixture of unique items, fashion items, apparels etc so that it’s easier for you to shop!

Fret not for those who will miss it that day or so,
And because it is to celebrate the festive season,
You can get 5%  off when you purchase from any where (but at least two categories) in Jipaban’s website,
Or get 10% off if you purchase from 3 or more categories!

I already took some time off and did some shopping there, 
and show you some of my picks!
For ladies:

1. Bird cage ring and this leopard prints wristband
Who doesn’t love accessories!!

2. Baking books! I have friends who really enjoy baking,
 (shall not mention name, if not they know who I am getting it for!)

3. Friendship bands kit, interesting! 
Been a long while we all did this, and it’s time to rekindle the old times!

For Men:

1. This tee looks like what most of my guy friends would wear!

2. Hehehe everyone of us needs a cup every day huh, this looks practical and unique!

3. Hats hats and more hats!

There are a lot more gifts there but I don’t think I want to bombard the whole entry with everything,
so take a peek there!
It might save you some time to go out and shop OR you might get the most interesting item for Christmas this year!
And the best part is that you can get your Christmas shopping loots right quickly and efficiently with Jipaban’s express delivery!

The girlies and myself had a random simple night out last week to town in search for a new place to dine in & feast the night away.
Time is always well-spent with them <3

We decided to explore a brand new place at a new mall at Scotts – Beside hyatt hotel Orchard,
and were deciding hard between the new branch of Wild Honey or Delicious till we settled for the latter as they allowed us to make reservations.


The neopolitius pasta (on the left) is the best outta all and i will definitely head back for another plate of that.

Food was pretty alright, but perhaps the air-con was overly cold that it turned our hot food to warm and then cold within minutes. ;(
From what we have tried, i would recommend that neopolitius pasta & calamari, those are the best outta the lot. :)

Of course, we never fail to snap shots of us during dinner.


I'm actually quite a huge fan of polka dot prints, and am loving this piece from Klarra! :)
Especially the adjustable waist design and the flare bottom,
definitely perfect for my night out feasting with the girlies, hee

loving my mommylinny! <3 Really can't wait to see baby evangeline being born!

If you are wondering where did i get my shoes, I wore my new lovely new pair of velvety nude ribbon peep toe heels from Xquisis,
love the dainty feel whenever i pair my outfits with this pair <3
*If you are falling in love with this pair too, or are in need for more shoes, you should totally take a look at and for you readers specially,
they are offering complimentary Registered Postage! Just quote BEAXQ in the email. ;)

Here are outfits of the past week and i am feeling great with colours!
Not quite a fan of dark tonnes, and these vibrant coloured outfits just made my days <3

Here's a piece that I like from DOT, especially how the embroidery are sewed on and the puffed sleeves designs,
definitely help in enhancing the shoulders yet keeping the design simple yet unique.

If you are feeling bold and great, you might want to check this bright and chirpy pink dress from DOT as well,
keeping it a minimalist with the pleats and comes with a removable sash!

Toga, toga and toga! I'm a fan of toga dresses, tops, simply just anything toga,
but this piece from Fadfab is pretty unique in its own way- the scrunched up sides, and the flower designs.

Last but not least, i am sure some of you girls love getting rompers because they are just so convenient and easy to wear,
yet looking stylish for a casual outfit. there you go! a piece from FabFad that you would want to get it in your wardrobe!

Korean BB Make Up Look with Smoochiezz!

Today's entry is all about make up and well,
I am still having the POST-KOREA syndrome so I decided that it shall be something related to that.

We all know Korean girls are known for good skin, good aesthetics enhancements and of course good make up,
and after visiting there, the females there plus Korean Stars are my sources of inspiration for today's make up look!
I'm no professional, but i do have my own set of steps that I picked up from various make up artists,
so it shall be named - Korean BB (By Bea) Look.
Geez. :p

In my opinion,
Korean's make up is defined by the pink lipstick colour and thin tailed eyeliner drawing,
for example:

You can see from these two current popular stars in Korea, Hyori & Goo Hara (from Korean Band Kara).

First and foremost,
you shall be presented with a bareface me….

so there you go!

It's a visual tutorial today,
so here's one to show the table of products that I will be using from.

Everything above (well, if you know this brand you know it…) is from Smoochiezz,
and I love getting makeup from there!
Fuss free, no need to queue, right at your door step, and extensive variety to choose from.

Got this eyeshadow base from Smoochiezz as well which helps in covering my dark circles,
and letting the eyeshadow stays longer than usual.

NYX Triple Eye Shadows in peachy earthy tones,
i can never get enough of these eyeshadow shades!

NYX Bronze Smokey Eyeshadows.

For the base, I decided to try a new product from Maybelline instead, and it's called the BB MOUSSE!

The thing about mousse that I always need to be careful is the pressing of nozzle part,
so i definitely had to make sure I don't exert too much strength and release the nozzle quickly to prevent over dose of mousse appearing..

So what I did was to get some onto my palm, and then spread it over my face with my fingers..

My verdict for the Maybelline BB Mousse:
I like the coverage and texture, it does help to cover my pores and uneven skin tone pretty well!
But do be careful not to apply too much thinking that it's mousse!
The mousse will turn into liquid the next moment, and it dries up pretty fast, so what i recommend is to dot it all over your face evenly,
and then quickly spread them.

A close up of the after mousse application for the face base!

Moving on to the eyes..
After applying the eyeshadow base, It's time for eyeshadows.

Using both the eyeshadow palettes from Smoochiezz, and in sequence..

The steps here are how I usually apply my eyeshadow,
and the last step is pretty essential for me so as to blend the lightest shade and darkest shade so that it gives a gradual shade.

Moving on, these are brushes that will aid me in my make up.

And I love the eyeliner brush that Smoochiezz carries,
it's awesome for drawing neat eyeliner and for this time round,
it definitely helps in drawing the thin fine tail at the corner of my eyes.

Thanks to the good eyeliner brush from them!

Blusher would be next,
and for my Korean look, I got this NYX Powder Blush in a rose pink shade,
which can be a natural shade for most of our daily looks as well.

Applying with the blusher brush in an upward circular motion from cheeks to the ears..

Last but not least,
to complete my korean look, I need the PINK LIPSTICK!

Love this shade of pink, it's NYX Round lipstick in Strawberry Milk Shade (sounds real yummy or kissable huh! :p)

And tadah, i'm done..
so let's do a recap of my non drawn face:

And after the KOREAN BB LOOK...






But If you realised,
it's a lighter version in the sense that the eyeshadow colours were not too harsh,
and I didn't line the bottom of my eyes.
Also, there are no falsies for any of the pictures above!

Hope you like this look,
and for all make up products above (except the Maybelline BB Mousse, this you can get it at Watsons!) are from Smoochiezz!
check out their for more ;)

Please share this look if you like it! Or let me know what kinda look(s) you are keen on seeing too! :)

And for ladies who usually tuned in for Outfits Of The Week,
here are two pieces that are looking gorgeous for your upcoming parties for sure!

A scrunched tube dress in navy blue from Eternity Loft that has a simple but flattering figure hugging design!

If you are not a fan of bodycons, you might like to check this royal purple dress from Eternity Loft that can be worn in two ways in fact,
either criss-cross at the front or not. It has the design at the waist area to make sure it gives you shape!
