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!
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.

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…]
If you are looking for fun makeup gift sets, Benefit Cosmetics is a no brainer when it comes to packaging their classic beauty products! I was sent two of their holiday products, the Life Is A Pretty Party set and Magnificent Brow Show. I can’t have a party at home, but at least I can have my own self-hosted makeup party with me and my products, right?
Summer was over in a blink of an eye and for me, the past few months were probably peak-stressful in terms of life and career. Trying to find some work life balance is much harder than it was during this time. I’ve been stuffing myself with local getaways, spa treatments, some (minor) shopping indulgence, and treating my skin better! I have so much more time to play with my old products.
So when the latest Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair arrived at my door, I embraced the beautiful box it came in and excited for something new to try! I also snapped a picture and send it to my mom, as she is a number 1 fan of this product. [Read more…]
