The blog has been on the backburner for the past week…because SAN DIEGO COMIC CON! My Elektra cosplay is ready to go and I’ve also been a wee bit preoccupied with PokemonGo. I thought I’d squeeze in one last mini post before I jet set to the states and have pop my SDCC cherry. I usually try to squeeze in a post of some stuff that I bring to a trip…so here ya go! I hope this won’t be boring you all!
Having been introduced to the Palmer’s brand recently, I have no complaints so far given their quality and price. One of the problem is that you can purchase them at Walmart and the closest Walmart is 30-45 minute drive away (and one time I crossed another bridge by accident and ended up in Delta (another city for those non-Vancouver based readers) and let’s just say that feeling of panic is something I DON’T want to feel again.) So I’m super grateful to try more from Palmer’s; this time their Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil and the Skin Therapy Oil for face is definitely a great duo. (And there’s a giveaway, yay!)
Sorry guys, I’ve been busy prepping/planning for Comic Con (which is happening in LESS than two weeks!) so I’ve kind of put my blog second on my priority list! I have a LOT of reading/catching up to do with my favourite blogs!
Amidst of all the hustling and bustling I’ve been doing, a nice shower is something I look forward to end of the day. And one of my favourite parts of showering is scrubbing away my rough and dead skin cells and be left with smooth, buttery skin that shines under the sun. My latest exfoliating discovery involves BVspa by Bon Vital. Bon Vital was found in 1988 (that’s 28 years!) and only until recently have I been aware of this brand! The BVspa line focuses on delivering luxurious spa quality products that a consumer can use at home. Since I can’t really see myself shelling out big bucks for a spa treatment, I love DIY-ing my own at home spa experience in my little yellow lit bathroom. The two products I got to try from BVspa is the Sugar Scrub and the Salt Scrub.
I have hard time struggling to eat a well balanced meal – what are vegetables?! One of the only ways for me to be happily eating endless sticks of carrots and broccoli is a good dipping sauce. Vancouver based Habibi’s Mediterranean Foods not only focuses in delivering the most traditional hummus, but also other vegetarian recipes that focuses on traditional Middle Eastern cuisine. I only discovered Baba Ganoush this year when some of my coworkers got it in and since then I’ve been after different Baba Ganoush dips! I got to try some of that and more!
Korean beauty store, ARITAUM, opened in Aberdeen Mall in April, bringing a HUGE selection of Korean skincare and cosmetics for us Lower Mainland beauty lovers! I can finally get my hands on products with cute packaging and brands that I usually shop for in Asia. One product that has been on my beauty radar for a while is the IOPE Air Cushion XP. It’s funny how the IOPE Air Cushion is under the AmorePacific umbrella, but I like this one a lot more than the AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact (review here)!
