The Butterfly Project: Unboxing the Birthday Bag

Yeay! It's time for the UNBOXING!!
I know you guys will be soooo curious like "where did chu' get that from?!". You can read all about it in my previous post on the The Butterfly Project Malaysia's 4th Birthday party here.
In today's topic, I will revealing what is in THE BIRTHDAY BAG with some mini reviews! Seriously, I am as excited as you are (eventhough I can't make huge facial expression in this face mask that I am currently having on) and if you have laid your hands on some of the products, let me know your thoughts as well!
Btw, the upcoming review pictures are taken with borrowed iPhone 6S plus. Now I can relate on why people say they take beautiful pictures oo(>A< ) Need to save up for better quality shots.

The first one is none other than the Unicorn Eye Makeup Brushes. I have been eyeing this set for ages but have been postponing it due to internal judgement between "I need THAT!!" while another internal voice goes "But you already have 3 sets of makeup brushes!" FML.
 To have these magicalpurplepastelhornsofamagesticunicorn is like OMFTHANKGOD moment
As you can see, there are a total of 10 eye brushes in this makeup set and each of them is unique in it's own functionality and color. The brushes are absolute light-weight and bristle are super soft. I have not experience any fall out bristle since the day I started using them.

[EVENT] The Butterfly Project's Turns 4 Party!

The Butterfly Project is finally 4! *blows trumpet*
Together as a family, butterflies and moths gathered last May the 20th at the Hello Deer, Uptown Petaling Jaya.

I started joining The Butterfly Project during it's 2nd year and never had I felt the such close 'family' bonding within the blogger community. I was a duckling back then; foreign to this new society and yet, The Butterfly Project manage to make me feel at home. The founder, Tammy went great distance to keep our minds active, ways to improving our skills constantly and at the same time, encourage us to be beautiful inside out in the name of Bloggers.

A word from the founder, Tammy.
"It's been a great fun 4 years curating activities and events for our members to join. Money isn't the goal of our community. It's building bridges, uncovering hidden talents, growing and giving love to the community of beauty & lifestyle bloggers in Malaysia. If you don't know, I've social anxiety issues since I was a child. The thought of meeting new people, talking to them, sends chills to my spine. I started blogging because I wanted to expr...ess myself on the keyboard, sharing my experiences and reviews. What's new, what's great, and what I love. Blogging changed me but when I reached the peak of my blogging life, I wasn't happy with what I saw. I stopped chasing stars & I started thinking, let's make it a better place"

Thankful for the good hospitality by our distant relatives, as well as citizens of Singapore.

I must have really missed my oven. So the moment we got home, I baked some Profiteroles aka Cream Puffs. It was my third attempt in baking this and TBH, the past 2 was less of a success with the previous old oven (learnt a very important lesson that a good oven does go a long way). 
Today's was such a beautiful batch, so I decided to included the recipe on How to Bake Cream Puffs. Let me know if it works for you!
