I keep forgetting to write about these…but a while back i actually got two items from the MAC Too Fabulous collection. Thanks to Miss GK for helping me get them!
Mineralize Blush Duo in Rhapsody in Two and Two Virtues
Frosty pink and purple
I looove this..cos everyone knows i like purple blushes…just the right amount of color
The payoff isnt very great so if u are after a vivid color..this isnt for you
Rhapsody in Two
Frosty light pale pink mixed with pale peach
I like this too! somedays in summer my cheeks are too colored and i find the frosty color tones it down and adds more color to it without overloading on color. [does that make sense?!]

Any questions? Fill free to ask
Update: used it in my fotd at the end of the post!!
So everyone keeps asking me what i bought in Taipei
I’ll be really honest with you guys..not very much XD! Not by my standards anyway heehee
Stocked up on Oriks Vit C bbcream
This is definetely my fave bbcream. It does wonders for my skin. Not so good on the oil control but it treats scars and evens out skintones very well.
Also picked up some wash off masks from Oriks
Never tried these so i hope they are good!
Heehee in my last entry i spoke of my file obsession and quite a few of you are the same!!
I got this folder from Cold Stone
Was a gift for spending over $XXX [forgot how much!]
I also bought several folders from..i have no idea what the name of the stationary store is [behind Taipei main station]
Scrapbooking stickers [i dont scrapbook] some of these are for Asiyakei who does scrapbook
Weird ballpoint pens as omiyage/gifts for friends
Loooove the Shin Ramyum one..i am so keeping it
The dangling fork appeals to me too
Heehee its a ramen eraser inside!
Random beer pens as gifts for the boys
I also picked up the LIBERTY Mook!
I was going to wait till i get back to Tokyo to purchase it but was afraid it might be sold out there
Price wise..it was NT529 [About USD$16.40] or 1500yen, which isnt too bad since the RRP in Japan is 1380yen.
I loooove these floral prints from Liberty
The amazing color combinations
Came with the most adorable bag too!
And it even has patterns for sewing
The pattern above is for this apron below which i am SOOO making
Speaking of sewing..the husband bought some geeky books from Amazon.com recently so i piggybacked onto his order [READ: shamelessly made him pay for my books and shipping] and got some sewing books
These have been on my wishlist for quite a while so its good to finally get them!! will review if anyone is interested.
Since we are on the topic of books and what not, Fashion and Beauty [Hong Kong magazine] is giving away a Paul and Joe mirror with every issue this month.
The mirror is HUGE! Such a bargain cos the magazine only costs $15hkd [about USD$2]
Last on this uber odd and random post..is this new hat i bought!
Yah it actually fits my HUGE head. i have problems buying hats outside of japan XD
I bought this hat in Sogo in TST.
How it looks like on me….
Ok so my head still looks huge hahaha i wore it out today and got some really odd looks from people.
But i am odd anyway..oh wait..u knew that already..
The week is almost over. Time really flies doesnt it?
I hope everyone is doing well
p.s it came to my notice yesterday..thanks to Miss S and Miss L for notifying me, that my contact form stopped working for a few days. i have fixed the stupid plugin since and should be working now. Feel free to keep sending me emails [READ: i am sad and would like to read emails not related to work] ^^
If its a short email, i usually reply right away [READ: iphone addict]. So if i dont reply..maybe i didnt get your email, please resend ^^ Plugin is a bit kooky at times.
