Happy Year of the Ox! Normally by Chinese New Year, I would’ve had new slippers, a haircut, and maybe some new clothes. However, this year’s Chinese New Year is looking a bit less festive as it used to be, due to no gatherings and all that. I will miss going to Aberdeen Mall with my mom, which is what I usually do every Chinese New Year and buy random fun things from the vendors that put up their stalls. However, a little festive gift did end up in my mailbox – Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex in Large-Size Red Bottle and the Lips in Bloom – Pure Color Envy Lipstick Collection. The red! The gold chrysanthemums!
First post of 2021 and hope everyone is doing well! Being at home all day is literally sucking the moisture out of me. My throat is dry and my hands are pruning from excessive handwashing. And to be honest, I barely wash my hair now. It’s so thick that it’s a pain to blow dry it.

Sad fact, I do not have a Christmas tree. Every year I say I will get one, but space is premium these days when your living quarters is small and I rather save the money?

Can you believe it’s Christmas next week? The year has flown by and I’ve been wearing a rotation of maybe 2-3 sweatshirts a month. Even if the holidays are looking a little bit different this year, I still get to enjoy the products’ packaging designs at this time of the year! Mario Badescu is now available at Sephora Canada – which was news to me as I used to recall only seeing them at Urban Outfitters! I received two sets from them that contains some of their most iconic products. Best of all – they’re reasonably priced and even better – they’re on sale at Sephora right now! [Read more…]
One common thing my friends and I complain about is having a sore back, sore neck etc! Especially when most of us are working from home and sitting on a rigid chair ( IKEA dining chair for me,) the whole backside of me is as stiff as a surfboard. I have a few items at home to relieve my muscles such as an electric neck massager or a lacrosse ball for the tight areas. Recently I received a few products from The Original Magic Bag, a company specializing in hot/cold therapeutic packs. Plus, their products are made in Canada! [Read more…]
