Early Christmas Shopping
Posted on: 27th of December 2008 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

Hours before our flight back to Manila, we were roaming around Orchard for some last minute shopping. I still needed to buy a few more goodies for my family, and I also wanted to check out the newly opened Sephora before leaving.

The range of makeup brands at Sephora was rather disappointing. No Nars or Urban Decay. Sad, because those were the two brands that I was really looking forward to. =( At least they brought in their house brand, which were  priced quite reasonably.

I only had little time to check out their entire range, so I only walked out with two things: a Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in #28, and a Sephora Blush Me! Trio in Brun 12. These are going to my sister (because she begged for them), so I’ll have to make another trip to town to get my own. =P

I bought the Mac eye shadow in Shroom at Changi Airport. They were only selling at SGD22.90, as opposed to the SGD28 in town, so I just had to get a pot! Now I’m tempted to drop by there again when we fly back on the 3rd! =D Sorry for the not-so-pretty photo, the lighting in my room isn’t so nice. =P

This pretty brush set was also waiting for me when I arrived back home:

My Charm Travel Pro Set! They’re so pretty in pink! =)

I haven’t shopped for myself since we arrived in Manila, but I’m definitely going to treat myself before we leave.

Beauty Haul
Posted on: 8th of December 2008 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

Work has kept me really busy that on my days off, which are unfortunately only Sundays, I usually take advantage and sleep in the whole day. For the past three Sundays, the bed has been my lovely companion.

I realized that I haven’t been out to really enjoy my only work-free day of the week, so today I finally headed out to treat myself. :-)

I came home with these goodies:

  1. Clarins Ultra Matte Balancing Lotion. I got this for free through their 7-day trial. I have combination to oily skin (must really try out more healthy grilling options), and this product promises a long-lasting oil-free face. Will see how it goes.
  2. L’oréal Elsève Smooth Intense Anti-Frizz Conditioner, because the bottle in my bathroom is almost empty.
  3. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polish in Black Out, which I’m wearing right now! :)
  4. The Face Shop’s Fragrant Nail Enamel Remover in Pink. I love the smell of this!
  5. The Face Shop Nail Polish in RD303.
  6. MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack. I got tired of having to sharpen my MAC Powerpoint all the time. =P
  7. MAC #266 Small Angle Brush, for the gel eyeliner.
  8. MAC Lipstick in Hug Me (Lustre).

I also got myself new black flats from Schu:

These were at 50% off! I love shopping during Sales! =)

I’m also anticipating the two-week trip back home to Manila for Christmas, because it means more time to relax and to go shopping! =)

For the Love of Being a Girl
Posted on: 27th of October 2008 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

I am a girl who loves clothes, shoes, bags, mirrors, makeup, and everything that can be classified as kikay. Don’t get me wrong, I am actually quite a geek who likes to bury my head between books, but I love being girly too. And I’m very lucky, because the boyfriend supports my love for pretty things. Try reading through my archives, and the proof is there.

A few days before our fifth anniversary, the boyfriend even took me to a MAC shopping spree! Look at what I took home:

  • Paint Pot in Painterly. I use it as an eyeshadow base, and it keeps my makeup intact. I even fell asleep with my makeup on one afternoon and woke up with my eyes still looking all glam.
  • Eyeshadow 1: Bronze (Frost).
  • Eyeshadow 2: Black Tied (Velvet).
  • Eyeshadow 3: Dreammaker (Starflash).
  • Eyeshadow 4: Honey Lust (Lustre).
  • Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Engraved.
  • Blending brush #217. Before heading off to the Mac store, I was already set on getting the #222 brush, but it turns out that they don’t even sell it here in SIngapore. :-/ I’ll have to ask my cousin in Canada to get it for me instead.

I am a spoilt little girl, aren’t I? <3

TV Show Frenzy
Posted on: 27th of September 2008 | Under: Geek Talk

I’ve been anticipating September for the past couple of months. Only because it’s the start of the season for my favorite TV shows. Hello Gossip Girl, Grey’s Anatomy, Heroes, Prison Break and Ugly Betty! I missed my torrents. =P I wish Lost started this month too, but sadly I’ll have to wait until next year for that. Bummer!

My downloads are already complete for this week, but because we’ve been busy, I have yet to watch them. I went out to look for DVI cables the other day, so I can hook my MacBook to a bigger screen, but all I could find were HDMI cables. I guess I just have to be a little more patient and wait until we fly back to Singapore, so I can watch them on JR’s big monitor.
