Despite having an extensive makeup collection, and fairly well resourced in the accessorise department; there are times when I would still feel that something is missing and I need a bit of newbie to make me to look forward to getting nicely dressed the next morning.

So I had a few moments to shop in the past few weeks and found a few new bits that I've been obsessed with.

The Balm makeup bits are not easy to get hold of in HK so I snapped up this - In theBalm of Your Hands Holiday Palette when I saw it in a little independent shop recently. Oh wow this palette is sooooo beautiful. I love the fact that it has most of the Balm's most popular face products- blushers: hot mama, instain and cabana boy. The bahama mama's bronzer is something I've wanted to try for such a long time, it's BRILLIANT. I like that it doesn't make me look orange but gives a natural shading to my cheeks. It also comes with 3 eye shadows, the very famous Mary-Lou manizer (love the name!) and 6 lip colours. This will be anyone's perfect travel palette, good to go!

I'm really loving the Oil Control Fixing Spray by Makeup Revolution. Not only is it wallet friendly, it's also effective in keeping oil at bay and making my makeup lasting for longer and better. When its first sprayed on the face it feels a bit tacky but settles supple very soon and absorbed so quickly by the skin. I normally wear my makeup for a good 8 hours and my T-zone is no more greasy and oily. My skin is not so dry now that I live in Hong Kong so controlling a bit of the oil situation has become a bit of a duty for me.

I'm a nail polish junkie so my nails might not be at their best conditions all the time. Cuticles are dry and regular trimming is definitely required. I like to apply this Nail Essence Oil by innisfree (A Korean brand) at night. A recent discovery as well which I'm pleased about. It's not greasy at all and absorbed so easily by my dry cuticles. I have also noticed a difference at the state of my nails. Love it and totally recommend it.

It's the festive season so I wanted to make an extra effort to add some accessories to jazz up my boring usually black outfits. I saw these types of earrings worn by many girls on the street and I really like the look of them. So I picked up 4 pairs to match with my clothings. They are special and unlike any earrings I have worn before. Both the front and back bits of the earrings are designed in their unique ways. It makes them look so much more interesting. I especially love this pair with red lips on the front and pearl baubles at the back- so chic and so stylish. I have been wearing all 4 pairs interchangeably, and feel so special in them.

What are your recent favourites? Have you discovered anything new like I did?
