Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad gown

Love. this. gown. Once again, Taylor Swift looks utterly stunning. 

She wore this nude and sparkly Zuhair Murad gown for the 2012 Grammy Awards. Just look at the intricate details on it! The beautiful gold and rose-gold beading...absolutely gorgeous! This dress kind of gives me a Chinese feel. Probably because of the high neckline. It resembles a chi pao to me.

It is amazing how Taylor manages to look so fabulous all the time. Her songs are always hits. She is also one of those few singers who successfully stay clear of trouble and scandals (think Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus). That's gotta earn her loads of good points I would say :)

Christina Perri - A Thousand Years

I absolutely LOVE this song by Christina Perri. It is the soundtrack for Twilight Breaking Dawn. I'm not a fan of the Twilight movies (a bit too mushy) but the novels are fine. 

Okay, back to the song. Lovely, soothing song. I have listened to it countless of times, playing it on my hand phone and laptop. Happy to say that I'm still not tired of it :) It just brings forth a calming effect. Christina Perri has such an angelic and beautiful voice. I also like her other song Jar of Hearts.

All in all, she is definitely a singer who is worth listening to ^^

Sasa Crease Brush

To be honest, a crease brush was not on my to-buy list. But when my sister told me about this affordable crease brush (RM 9.90) which she bought from Sasa, I was a wee bit tempted to get one for myself. She told me that it performed well enough for her. So I thought "Hey, why not?" and promptly got one for myself.

Sadly, I ended up being disappointed with this brush. Main reason? Well, the second I dragged it across my lid, I gave a howl of pain. Some of the brush bristles were simply too coarse! I tried mending the problem by cutting off some of the annoyingly hard bristles. Epic fail :( There were simply too many of them! 

When I screeched my dissatisfaction at my sister, she nonchalantly told me bad apples sometimes appear among relatively good products. Which is true actually. It was merely a stroke of bad luck that I got this skin-marring brush. Sasa products are generally alright. I got an angle brush from Sasa and it worked just fine.

This brush now lies unused in one of the compartments where I store my makeup. So the search for a new crease brush has begun...

The Hobbit ♥

The Hobbit movie is coming out *cue hysterical scream* I'm a Lord of the Rings fanatic, a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien. So I guess you can see why I'm hyperventilating now :) This movie is directed by the great Peter Jackson who directed the other LOTR movies. He knows the LOTR concept better than anyone else!

Martin Freeman plays the role of Bilbo Baggins while Richard Armitage plays Thorin Oakenshield. Other familiar LOTR actors who reprise their roles include Ian McKellan, Andy Serkis, Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving. 

The soundtrack alone gave me goosebumps! So nostalgic... I have already read the book and I must say that it is awesome. Can't wait for the movie!
