I've MOVED Permanently to kaslovesmakeup.wordpress.com


I randomly ran into some readers a while ago and they thought I had stopped blogging - ooops.

I think my mistake was that I simply mentioned here on this blog that I had a NEW blog. The truth is that I've permanently shifted my blog to Wordpress.

It's still Shine, Shimmer & Sparkle. 


All new content is posted there and I won't be updating at this URL anymore. 

Thank you for your love here and see you at the new Shine, Shimmer & Sparkle!

Announcement: I Have A New Blog at http://kaslovesmakeup.wordpress.com


I've published a new blog over at WordPress - it's still called Shine, Shimmer & Sparkle - the URL is http://kaslovesmakeup.wordpress.com

I really like the WordPress platform - very clean lines, fresh and I like how the template has a lot of features like a slider post. It affords some customisation and I've been playing around with it.

I've exported all the entries from OnSugar (which will remain as it is) and they are available on the new WordPress blog - the Calendar, Categories and Brands menu makes them easily searchable.

I've also posted some new entries on the WordPress blog - to familiarise myself with the layout and to get started - I didn't want it to end up as an abandoned project. 2 or more entries will be posted there today :)

You can subscribe to the new blog via email subscription, Bloglovin (which I just implemented today) or RSS Feeds.

I loved OnSugar for its simple, user-friendly layout and the OnSugar community. However, I've been experiencing several technical glitches - sometimes, I'm logged out of my own OnSugar blog, sometimes, my own comments get marked at spam ... the worst is when I can't upload pictures and when my entire format gets all messed up and I can't do anything. 

I thank you all on OnSugar for being with me for this long ... I hope that you will pop over to the new and improved Shine, Shimmer & Sparkle at http://kaslovesmakeup.wordpress.com and stay with me there :)

For now, I will be posting links to my newly published entries in this blog :)

                                       Thanks again and see you soon :)

Giveaway!!!: The Last Minute, Last Day Of The Year Giveaway :) - CLOSING ON 10 January 2013


I wanted to do my annual Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway this year but my plans fell through due to a rough patch I went through. So I thought I'd do it as a Last Minute, Last Day Of 2012 Giveaway - it is 1148pm (on my laptop at least) on 31 Dec 2012 as I type this out.

  • Giveaway open to readers based in Singapore only 
  • Giveaway closes on 10 January 2013 (forgot to mention it earlier! :P)

If you like, you can also share your New Year resolutions or aspirations with all of us.

I saw this on my new friend, Joanna Koh's Instagram and thought it was a fab idea - I've got my jar ready and will be filling it up the moment I post this entry. I'm sharing this here in case you might want to :)

This year had several ups and downs for me and I can't say that I achieved everything I set out to either. But I want to leave all of that behind and start afresh. I believe that there are better things lying in wait for me and for you and if we work towards it, sooner or later, things will materialise. It may not always turn out how we imagined but my Mom always says, what you imagine might not always really be the best and something even better might be planned for you. So with that in mind, I'm taking a step forward and hope everything will be roses, honey and milk :) 

Happy New Year everyone and let all our good wishes come true :)


Disclaimer: Giveaway prizes feature a mix of products purchased with my own money as well as some that I'm sharing from the bounty I've been fortunate to receive. OPI Pink of Hearts set is kindly sponsored by Tammy of Tim Tam.
