What Really is BB Cream?

I've heard of it for a long time now and of course when I heard of it for the first time, I was very curious but not curious until now to know what does it really mean and what does it do.

So here's what I know.  The term BB means a lot of things - beauty balm, blemish balm, etc.  It was originally marketed in Asian market but has proliferated the Western counterpart.  In some area, it can be called CC Cream.  

As an all-in-one facial cosmetic product, I'd be tempted to use this one.  Need to do more research though

A Little Reward

I have been quite productive this weekeend.  I have so many little projects around the house that I wanted and needed to get done.  They're something that I can live for a little while longer without doing but to some extent are stressing me when I see them.  I'm sure anyone who's into organising know about this.  I have a long list of things to do and chipping off them feels really great.

I have not planned them exactly to get done this weekend but you know, from time to time I dream that I have enough time to do them.  So, aside from the usualy household chores I was able to sort the Tatapilla's clothes, our hallway cupboard which is our sort-of bathroom cupboard and our pantry.  I have stuff to give away and thrown out a lot of food and tioletries and medication.  Oh well, I suppose it's the downside of working and not having enough time to check the expiry dates of food and medicines.  

As I felt really good about it thatvI bought myself a little present.  It's something that will require decisions like which guitar string is which.  It's somehing not expensive but very attractive in my opinion. 

What do you think?

I am talking not just the colour, which is my colour of the year.  There are yellow stuff around the house before this year arrived but I decided that my house will be adorned or decorated with hues of yellow, green and light blue. 

Okay, on to another yellow.  One of my favourite songs of Coldplay of course.  Before I became familiar with their songs, I have heard of the band.  I believe the first song that I listened to was the Sky Full of Stars which the video was recorded in Australia and if I am right, launched here as well. But it was Yellow that really latches on me.  From then on, my curiosity with Chris Martin grew.  Of course, I am not happy that they divorced but I am not a fan of Gwyneth so I am not so sad as that of the Bennifer #2.  So do you think, the martin 000 is named after Christ Martin? 

On the Yellow though, I read in Wikipedia that there are different versions of origin of the song as told by Christ Martin.  In one of his interviews, he said that it is a ploy to move to the next question.  I am not really sure if this makes me like him more or less.  The jury is still out but I don’t have to like the singer.  I just like the song. 

Art Nouveau

I am currently reading a trilogy book and I am on the third instalment. On a side, since Fifty Shades.. most of the books these days are in-parts and some even are cliff-hangers. But that’s another story. In the book, the hero gave the heroine an art nouveau oval-cut diamond ring. It was described in details that I might recognise it when I see it.

Not only the book made me curious of the ring but I want to know what is art nouveau, of course. I bet I would be curious too if I read about joy jewellers promise rings. I found that art nouveau is the style between 1898-1910 where the design is inspired by the nature forms. Most of the rings that I saw have lovely design and patterns in them – flowers, plants. I am always fascinated with natural designs on jewellery and I reckon I own a few.

Back to the story on the book, it was not an engagement ring but an eternity ring. And it was given with a note and a speech that was so sweet.
