Sephora Haul

I have not bought any make up for a few months already. Actually I do realize one thing, I would totally stop buying make up as long as I don't visit MUA :P

What I got this time is pretty much all mascara! I bought a set of Stila... which I forgot the name. It comes with a mascara, 24k gold bronzer, liquid eyeliners, lip color... for $25 I believe. I also picked up this Cargo Mascara, since it is on sale for only $8.80 (which was originally retail for $35 IIRC). The last thing I have picked up is what I been eyeing for a while ~

Make UP For Ever Smoky Lash kit ($22)... I been reading review about how good it is.... But ummm.... I tried it for the first time today. So far, not impressed at all. When I was using my Shu curler with Stila Major Lash Mascara, it holds my curl nicely. Only complaint was it has added no volumne at all. But this Smoky Lash... It has kinda added some volumne i think. But it totally weighted my lashes down. I mean, my Shu curled lashes became pretty much all flat right after I put this on... so, go figure~ I'm gonna give it few more tries before returning it (>_<)

Not a quite happy day

I have been barely blog recently since I been quite busy with work. Not that work was getting busier, just my supervisor is on vacation. So I have to work OT this whole month to cover her place *blah*

Anyway, today I was so shocked to learn that one of my ex coworker has passed away few days ago. He was so kind to me all the time, always get me snack and stuff :[

You will be missed dearly ~ *Kin Low*!!!

So many people that I know has passed away suddenly recently. really~ what's going on?

DHC Haul

Actually this haul is from last week. Though I have been plain lazy, so I didn't bother to update it till now :D

So what I have bought is 4 bottles of my *MOST* loved DHC Deep Cleaning Oil (large size). It was on the monthly sale for $21 each (originally $25). And I got them during the president day sale with extra 10% off... so the total came to less than $19 each. I was planning to get them at the flagship store when I get to HK next month. But clearly getting it here was MUCH cheaper (retails for HKD $253 = USD $32.50) Now I can scratch it off my "To Buy List" from HK :]

I also got a full size soap case to make it reach the $85 for free shipping *heheehe*

YaYa I fixed the comment error!

I think I have finally kind of fixed the comment error. Since some people has notify me about unable to leave comment. I finally *successfully* changed the comment setting to pop-up window instead of a link in order to get it work :D

So again.. long time no blog my friends~ I wonder if this is a good thing or bad thing? Sometimes if you blog nearly daily, it just kinda means that you *might* have nothing better to do. But being rarely blog, it certainly doesn't mean I'm very busy *BOO*

My next vacation will be in April. And the destination will be my dear home - HONG KONG. I have not been back to HK for about 2 years already. Apart from HK, during this trip I will go to Thailand *again* and Korea as well. I have never been to Korea before, so that will be totally new to me. It will be during the cherry blossom season, so I will surely take BUNCH of great pics to show you all. But indeed, I think I will have to carry an extra bottle of Zytrec. Just in case if 1 pill is not good enough for my pollen.

Other than busy *collecting* gifts for my families in HK, I'm planning to start a new blog to post my collection. But I certainly need some help since I have no clue how to link the blogs together :P

New Toy in my *Collection*

Many people know that, when I say TOY... I totally mean handbag :D Somehow I just have a big obsession on handbags. I even built a shelf inside my closet just to put all of my Vuitton, Gucci, Dior...

The new toy I got is a bowler style purse from the classic Marc Jacobs line (not the Marc by Marc Jacobs line). It was purchased by a friend who currently working at a "designer" department store, so they get the employee discount for pretty much other stores that is linked to the one that she works for. And of course, Marc Jacobs is one of them. My price was only $400 (about 70% off I believe) :D which is totally unbelievable!

Back to the purse, this is a Patchwork Bowler from Marc Jacobs. Style C372041, in Chocolate. I'm not quite sure if this purse has even been officially released or not, because it had been NO WAY to find any info regard it on google so far. All I found was 1 Japanese site that has its info. Kinda weird... I was soo digging the MJ Patchwork Stam. But anyway, while I like MJ, but I just can't tell myself to put few thousand on his bag. I would rather spend that on another Vuitton or just a Chanel.

It is a pretty good size, just right for all of my junks to sit in it :D

The chain seems very chick. It can be used as a top handles bag or carry on the side with that chain. Though that chain is quite heavy itself IMO.

The signature Marc Jacobs snap button is located on the side of the bag. Not quite noticable.

I had a VERY happy Chinese New Year :D

I have tried to fix the comment feature after several people reported that it does not work at all. And as a *result*, I realized that .. I don't know what happened to it :P At first, I thought maybe it was due to the code that I put in the layout that might have disabled the feature. But after changing it around (even used the regular layout provided by Blogger), the feature still stay disable. So now I certainly don't know what is wrong with it. Maybe blogger doesn't like me ehhh

So the past Saturday night, I went to Mohegan Sun casino with my mom and some coworkers. And of course, it has tired me out BADLY since we stayed there till 5.30am the next day, and I headed back to work at 8am. So all I got was that little 2 hours sleep on the bus :D Though, like usual, I did not gamble at all. I guess it just isn't my thing after all. We went there mainly for a concert, a Taiwanese band called *SuperBand* (縱貫線). It is actually featured four mid-aged men *LOL So all of those music they have played was pretty much from my childhood :P

It been crazy busy at work for the past few weeks, though I still had a VERY good Chinese New Year. This year I have got 91 red envelopes, with total of $1029!!! (Plus $110 In-Store coupons from my cheapo boss) So this will be my petty cash to spend in my trip to Hong Kong, Thailand and Korea in April :D

New *Phonbie* Obsession

The Chinese New Year is coming soon, so it been crazy busy at work recently :/ Of course, making those extra $$ is always good, but it certainly tired me out soooo much *grr*

So anyway, recently I have a new obsession on those Japanese bling phone case. I found some really cute custom made ones on eBay from a Thai seller. However, she can not find a case for my phone. So I ended up DIY 2 for myself :] It does takes lot of time though, so now I do understand why did she charge like $60 for just a phone case.....

This is the 1st one I have made. It was mainly pink/sliver color. I bought a pack of 10 of those bears. And of course BUNCH of rhinestones.

This is the 2nd case I have made. Indeed, I do like this one more actually. As you can see, it was mostly black. And I tried to add vary shades of purple to make it looks sexier :P

After making these 2 cases, I still have enough stuff to make probably few more cases. I will probably make 1 for my DSi, and then make some for iphone and sell it on eBay :D

Abercrombie Haul

Abercrombie & Fitch is currently having a huge sale online. I mean, the price should be at the cheapest point right now, except for certain products that are still priced at about $50 up... those will probably go down further more in a few weeks. But by then, most of the better look ones will be OOS. So don't wait till the last minute, just grab what you can now! :D

I pretty much grabbed what I have been lemming for a while....

Perfect Butt Skinny Slouch - $14.95 (originally $58)... This will be perfect to wear with my UGG when heading to the gym in the morning :D

Perfect Butt Lace Legging - $9.95 (Originally $38). Dunno why did I like this one so much... I think it was all because of the LACE :P

Mandy *Down* Outerwear - $39.95 (Originally $150). Actually I had no intention to get this one at all. What I wanted to get is the one below... But it was OOS at THAT moment when I clicked the *place order*. The price wasn't bad after all, though I might either return it (if I don't have to pay for the shipping.. lol) or just give it to my sister.

Celine *Down* Outerwear - $39.95 (Originally $150). So this was actually the one I was eyeing for a while. And it also been OOS for quite a while. Though they were back in stock and only in my size right after I placed my first order (like.. um.. maybe less than 1 min) So Boo... I ended up placed a separate order for this one and it went back to OOS within minutes. Hopefully my order did go through~

Annie *Down* Vest Outerwear - $29.95 (Originally $120). Dunno why but recently I like to wear vest a lot somehow :P


First I gotta say it isn't a very joyful day so far, because it's one of my coworkers' husband funeral today. Indeed I do know her husband personally. He was always so kind and funny. We will certainly miss him a lot :[

My First Cat Lesson

The first trouble I been having since the new year is Jewel has developed some hairball problem *sigh* As an inexperience cat owner, I have no clue what does hairball vomit look like or any symptom. So it was just a gross experience of seeing some black tube thing all over the floor :P

Happy New Year...

I know.. I'm a bit late. But happy new year!! :]

So for the new year, my new low-buy *target* to achieve is

1) $10 spending limit / per week
2) Hit pans of at least 10 items

These rules will be applied throughout the whole 2010. I'm trying to down size my stash without purging anything. Though I have haul quite a bit by the end of 2009, so it might be a bit hard after all lol
