HOLY GRAIL PRODUCTS. Wow, another month is already gone and we are now nearing the half way mark of 2014. This month has been a month of discovery. I have rediscovered my old and loved products and also found some new gems to add to my collection. So let's start off with my beauty related favourites for the month.

UDON FOR ME, UDON FOR YOU.Hidden next to Pepper Lunch, lies this gem of a restaurant. Taking on a canteen style of service, Menya Mappen offers a range of udon and soba. It is my go to spot for a fast,cheap and delicious meal. When you first walk in you will be asked about what type of soup/noodle you would like and my choice of course is the Spicy Pork Udon (I forget the actual name, but that should be right...). As you move along, with your tray and bowl of udon in hand, you go past the hot section with an array of delicious side dishes. My favourites are the Takoyaki and Chicken tempura. Then you reach the end of the road and find yourself faced with 2 enormous trays of spring onion and flakes which look like they belong to the tempura batter, but honestly, they taste so good in your udon. At this point, I decide to pile on the greens, as you can never overkill on spring onions. 

I don't recall to well the prices of everything, but I know that by the end of it I paid less than $11 for my entire meal which includes a bowl of udon, takoyaki balls and chicken tempura. VERY CHEAP I must say. You may think that the price would mean that there is a sacrifice on quality, but there definitely isn't one here. I love this place so much and would recommend to everyone who loves udon!

Have you tried Menya Mappen before?

Blush was just one of those things I was never really interested in, that is until recently. A little bit of blush for everyday definitely livens up the face and brings back colour into your face, giving you a nice glow about you. I have been wanting to try the blushes from Bourjois for a very long time but I just never got around to purchasing one considering they are $20 in Priceline. With one of the sales ASOS was having, I bought this little gem of a blush. The colour I purchased was 34 Rose D'or
This blush is definitely not one of the most pigmented blushes I have tried, however, you can build up the colour as much as you desire. There are little specks of gold throughout the blush which may seem very intimidating, however this is what gives you that beautiful glow to your cheeks. The  brush that comes with this blush is a terrible product for such a beautiful blush product and I would not recommend this brush for anything.

Would I repurchase this? YES definitely! Despite the blush lacking in the pigmentation department, it is honestly such a pretty colour and my go to product nowadays.My photos for this blush do not do it justice at all, but trust me when I say that this is a must have blush. Not only is it perfect for everyday, it is compact and your perfect travel companion.

Do you own any of the blushes from Bourjois?
