Not much to update here, I’m still trying to find time to photograph a couple of clothing hauls I’ve done from Asia and back here in North America…AND I’m still going shopping, planning on hitting the outlets in Seattle this weekend…Oh the wonderful life of a shopping addict 🙂 #neverending
How am I ever going to catchup with photos? >[
Anyway, I picked up a dark brown Sephora Brows kit along with my birthday BI gift, largely because I realized I should start caring about my brows and because it’s totally embarrassing to go up to the counter and just ask for something free…my social etiquette instructor from eons ago would frown and tsk and wag his finger at me…
I must say the Benefit birthday Turn-Ons set is amazing, it IS true what they say about the mascara and 1 coat does wonders to my silly asian eyelashes…but the real prize was the other gift in the set Watt’s Up…it’s a champagne coloured glam stick that really works to bright up tired looking faces with just a smidgen of it glided on in the inner corner of the eyes, down the nose bridge and on the cheekbones…just a little bit of it goes a long way, do make sure to blend well. But it works wonders, I’ve never looked this fresh on 3 hrs of sleep ever before…specially since I tried it on during Finals week, where every university student needs all the beauty help they can get.
This free Birthday Gift gets a massive thumbs up from me, I got to test out a new mascara (that other beauty/fashion gurus have raved about) and I think I just found the perfect summer glow stick 😀
The 2nd little Sephora Haul I picked up included a black/whitehead lancing 3-in-1 kit and the Acqua di Gioia rollerball – I’d decided that instead of lugging around my Chanel eau de toilette and parfums around whenever I travel and worrying constantly if the tossing of my suitcases will smash the bottles and render my clothes Chanel soaked, I’d just buy a 10ml rollerball of something light and crisp and fresh that I’d never get sick of and tote THAT around. #travelingwoes
TBH, it is no wonder I was almost instantly attracted to this scent, I’ve always loved anything with Citrus, Rose or Jasmine top notes (see Chloe, Chanel, Issey etc.) and Acqua di Gioia has a citrusy top note with Jasmine as its middle note…the ideal combination if you ask me 😛 Fresh and crisp and smells just like Summer…I absolutely adore this.
Speaking of which, the temperature here is a solid 27 degrees and I’m loving it. #welcomebacksummer
Until next time (when I hopefully get my dslr back and can start taking better photos and find time to poke through my stack of shopping), stay happy, loved, blessed and shop lots
