FOTD: "I'm Feeling Retro" featuring Wet n Wild Trio Palette

Today is my nephew, Jasper's 2nd birthday. He's getting older but still a bit annoying when he messes up my things when I am not home. Our whole family went out to have dinner with him but all he wants during dinner was the Sunkist soda. Ha-ha!

Now back to My FOTD. Finally I start using my Wet n Wild palette in posts. This is not a review of the palette I am using now. If you guys want, I will do a more in depth review of the product with swatches in my next couple of posts. I have another Wet n Wild palette and I will be reviewing that too with my "I'm Feeling Retro" palette.

2011 First Clothing Haul

I haven't done a clothing haul or any haul lately. As you may all know, sometimes I can be lazy when it's time to take photo. You have to find the right lighting and the right mood to do it. I hope all of you will understand me.

Now on to the clothing I bought this year. I am in love with pink and stripes sweater/shirt this season. They are easy to match with clothes I already own. I know it may look boring but when you know how to put together different clothing pieces, it can truly be fashionable. You don't have to always buy new clothes every season in order to keep up with the latest fashion trend. To me, the most important thing is to be yourself. If it doesn't match your personality, then don't wear it. That is just my advice.

Sorry for the super bad lighting today due to the weather today. It has been raining all day long and during noon, it even starts hailing. I hope the weather will get better soon and I will be more happy to welcome spring.

H&M Pink + White Stripe Sweater
 This sweater was on sale in H&M for only $10! I know that I had to grab it!

Review: The Brush Guard

Do you ever wonder why your brushes won't stay in shape after cleaning it? I know why. It is because you haven't used something to hold and protect your clean brushes from water dripping down to the glue inside the brush.

What is The Brush Guard?
The Brush Guard is a flexible, breathable sheath that slips over a brush’s handle and over the bristles to give makeup brushes the best possible protection.

Only The Brush Guard allows brushes to dry bristle-down so water can’t damage the ferrule. The brush dries in perfect shape and lasts longer!

With The Brush Guard in place, makeup brushes can go anywhere safely.

Review: My LIp Stuff Lip Balm + Giveaway

 My Lip Stuff is a small online store that sells over 500 different kinds of natural lip balm. All their lip balms are 100% Vegan! Their lip balm is the perfect blend of butters, oils, and beeswax to moisturize dry lips. Also they sell bath and body products too!

What is My Lip Stuff?
My Lip Stuff's ultimate mission is to end the suffering of people with chapped lips all across the land. In the process, we strive to end animal testing and save the environment with chemical-free natural products!

My Lip Stuff's products are NEVER tested on animals & contain natural (from the earth) ingredients that are skin loving. Our products do NOT contain any harsh ingredients- and NEVER contain petroleum or mineral oil! We also do what we can by using recycled (and recyclable) materials whenever possible, and even using "green power" (power from renewable resources such as wind, water, or landfill gases-instead of oil). 
In the end, We strive to create a natural product made from only the highest quality ingredients, with the least amount of impact on the environment and its inhabitants, for the lowest possible price.

That's what you call a day with food, love, and joy

This post is about my whole last week and maybe plus today as well. I had some fun with food and love. Usually I am picky with food (everyone are) because I love to eat what I love, not what I need. So, I consider myself a very unhealthy girl, who skip meal and eat whenever I want to. I guess that's how life goes with me. 

As for love, I guess I found it again but this time with something else. It is the love of going out and enjoying the weather while I can. I love how the winds blow at my face and through my hair. That feeling is ecstatic! It is also the love for books. I have found it again and I enjoy every moment of reading now. I had forgotten the way I cried, laugh, and smile in the book while reading it. I am happy to tell myself I found it again.

Review: Demalogica Multi-Active Toner, Skin Hydrating Masque & Ultracalming Serum Concentrate

 What Is Dermalogica?
Dermalogica revolutionized the skin care industry when it emerged into the marketplace in 1986 with innovative formulations, which excluded common irritants, including SD alcohol, lanolin, mineral oil and artificial colors and fragrance. Jane Wurwand developed the products to better support the advanced curriculum she had developed a few years earlier for The International Dermal Institute, which she also founded. Beginning with Dermal Clay Cleanser. Multi-Active Toner, Skin Smoothing Cream and Skin Prep Scrub, which remain among the company's top-sellers today, Wurwand led the company's growth from an idea to the world's most-requested professional skin care

Happy Lunar New Year!

Today is the day in the Chinese calendar to have a family dinner like Thanksgiving. It was a tiring day because I have to clean my room, which I should do two days ago. Two days ago was the day to clean the house to clear away all the bad things and hope the new year brings you luck. 

This is our dinner for tonight but can you see anything missing? Yes! Rice is missing. After cooking this wonderful meal for 7, my mom realizes that the rice cooker wasn't even plug in! It turns out that we just ate what was on the table while the rice is cooking. I didn't get to get rice because by the time the rice finish cooking, I was full!

Even though tomorrow is the actual Lunar New Year date, I am still wishing everyone good health this year tonight! Gong Hay Fat Choy 恭喜發財! 身體健康! Seng Tai Kin Hong (translation is all in Cantonese)

OOTD #9: Pink Fun

Today is a pretty warm day compare to other cold days I had before. I decided to do some fun with my outfit today by adding lots of pink to it. Most of my outfit is pink aside from my purple jeans and white jacket. Sometimes having fun and experimenting with different color and trend is a great way to boost up your fashion sense. I am trying very hard to do that now.

Sorry for the blurry picture and the super messy hair!

Lunar New Year Makup Look w/ Drugstore Products

Since Lunar New Year is coming soon in like 2 days, I will be doing a makeup look for this event in this post. I saw xteener's video on Youtube and decide to come up with my own makeup look for Lunar New Year. 

I did not use any red because I want to make it different. Instead of red, I use some pink and purple eye shadows with brown eyeliner on top and blue shadow on the bottom lash line. 

Some of you might think this might not be a perfect makeup look for the New Year but that is just my interpretation of it. You don't have to have red in order to be lucky because some people would want to have some love luck this year. The makeup look would be perfect for them to help them find their true love in the Hare Year.
