The Face Shop Haul

First of all, thank you so much for the greetings on my previous post. I really appreciate every single one of your greetings :) They totally made my day.

So on to the haul, I bought some stuffs from The Face Shop few days ago. I only got stuffs that I really need at the moment cause I have been in no shopping mood lately, just don't know why. hehe..

I have finished my Skinfood Tea Tree Cleansing Emulsion and need a new makeup cleanser. I saw this Herb Day Cleansing Emulsion in Green Tea and the SA told me that it's good for oily skin, so without a doubt, I grabbed it. I just can't go anywhere far from the word 'tea' :D. I have used it a few times, it feels more lightweight than the Skinfood one and so far I like this.

Herb Day Cleansing Wipes
Saw this on the shelf, and just grabbed it. I need a cleansing wipes for my next travel trip. I haven't tried it though.

Fragrant Nail Enamel Remover - Pink
Read a good review about it from Anastasia, and my nail polish remover is finished, so i decided to try it. I have tried it a few times and like it too, but not too fond of the scent.

Post-Acne Nighttime Spot Eraser
Now, this is the one that I'm excited to get for. I remember going to The Face Shop a couple weeks ago to search for this but was disappointed that they didn't have it. And few days ago when I was going to pay for the stuffs above, I took a look around and saw this spot eraser, I immediately rushed over there and grabbed it, I almost ignored the SA that was going to tell me about this product, haha...I have only tried it for three times, haven't felt anything yet. Hopefully it really works to fade my acne scar as I've read a lot of great reviews about this product.

Actually I got a few reviews in my hand, but I'm too lazy to take picture of the stuffs that I'm going to review. Hopefully I can do it by this weekend :D. So, that's it for now. Have a great day everyone!

One-Year Blog Anniversary!

Yes! Today my blog has turned one-year old. I started this blog last year on March although on the archives, the first post was on June. Back in last year, this blog was just a personal blog of mine that I promised to myself to blog at least once a month :D, hence that only one post on each June and July. If you are one of my first followers, you would still read the first few posts (from March to June), cause at that time I still kept those posts but I doubt you read those posts though :D. Later I decided to move them to my personal blog, cause I want to keep my personal stuffs aside :). I still remember who was my very first follower (Shout-out to Nic!) and I'm really glad that I create this blog although the initial thought for this blog wasn't on beauty blog. I really love this community, just like what Lisa said on her recent post, this community is like a sorority. I really feel that I can easily make friends with you all although we most likely won't be able to meet in real life. I got to meet a fellow blogger though, yeah, that's the ever lovely Verina :). I really want to shout-out to each and everyone of you, but afraid that one or few of you will be left out. So, just know that I love you all very very much :)), you are all sweet and nice blogger!

Speaking of sweet and nice blogger, few days ago I received a surprised birthday present from Kay. I was really surprised that I got a package cause I didn't expect any package at that time, and I was even more surprised that the package was from Kay. A couple weeks ago, I found out on twitter that Kay's birthday is on March and I randomly told her that mine is on March as well. When I received the birthday present from Kay, I was puzzled that she knows my address, and later I remember that I joined a Secret Santa she hosted on last Christmas. Thank you so much Kay! You are one of the sweetest blogger I've ever known :). 

Here's the love that she sent to me....
 I really love the Kit Kat, esp. the Royal Milk Tea Flavor. It really tastes like real milk tea. Yum!

The Face Shop Oil Free BB Cream, L'egere White Multi BB Cream, MAC Barestudy Paintpot, Kate Eyeshadow Palette and Falsies.

I was really excited when I saw that Kay included those BB Cream samples cause I've been wanting to try them. Love the paintpot and the palette as well. And those are my very first falsies, yeah I've never applied falsies by myself yet, so I'm going to start with them :D.
Thanks again, Kay! :)

Etsy Find: Vintage Necklaces

Sorry for the lack of posting, I'm feeling uninspired (read: lazy) lately. And my moving back to home got postponed cause I still have some stuffs to be done before I'm going back. I think it will be next week or next next week, still not sure yet. Anyhow, I've just browsed Etsy after not visiting it for a long time. Got attached by a couple of vintage necklaces....

Don't you love their details? :)

Yesterday was my bf's friend's birthday. She treated us a dinner in a Chinese restaurant. Look at the foods! They were all lined up in a line, all the foods are yummy although i didn't taste all of them.

And some of the foods that i could reach to take picture and eat :D

A Piece of Me... in March 2010

A game hosted by Shirley of Notes from the Toothfairy

This month....

I like: that I'm on a long long holiday now. It feels so great to have all the univ stuffs done :D

I don't like: my new internet connection! It's so slow that I can't even watch my fave TV show online now. I've just changed it this month cause most of my housemates want to stop the old connection, I just can't afford to pay the old connection by myself. Guess that means you get what you pay for :(

I want you to know: that I'll be moving back to my hometown next week! Will stay there for at least one year I think. But don't worry, cause my home has an internet connection which is far better than this one I'm using now. So, I'll still blog from there :)

I've planned: to start packing my stuffs soon (haha, soon but not now, I'm such a procrastinator). Will have to sort which stuffs that I'm going to bring and which to leave behind, that will be really hard.

I want to say to someone special: the four and a half years we spent together is just so surreal. There are happiness, sadness, misunderstand and so much more. I just hope our friendship will stay stronger and stronger although most of us will go different ways. Thank you all for the great univ years we've been through :) Go PAW'ers!

China Glaze Secret Peri-Winkle

Got this nail polish from Nic. Finally I came out from my comfort zone which is nude shade nail polish to this really pretty blue color. Again, please excuse my uneven application, I'm such a noob. The nail polish shade is pretty sheer, as you can see from the one coat pic. I personally like it better with a top coat. I really like this nail polish, although I'll become more conscious and can't stop looking at my own nails :D. Thanks for this lovely nail polish, Nic :)
