le sighhhh

Good bye bag that I loved ;___;
I have such a hard time letting go of purses that I've found~

I get so attatched.

But I have reason!

Think about it.  I love bags and purses XD no question!
And I spend all my time thinking about it ahaha ^^;;

So when I finally find one, I love it to pieces!

I think I've gotten to the point that if I want to invest in a bag, it's going to be good quality.

I really love this bag and I've gotten so many compliments on it.  However I got it at Aldo...and it was 50 bucks D= 

I think that's the last time I'm going to buy a fashion bag and sacrifice the quality.

Except for maybe smaller purses which I run to the groceries or something =)

I've gotten quality bags for around 100 bucks and they still are in perfect condition...except my white one....I had a spat and there was pink bbt involved D=

Needless to say I'm going to keep my cool when I'm holding an expensive bag lol!

Ohhh maybe I'll do a purse collection XD

haul time!!! (pic super heavy @___@)

I think I've decided that valentines day is going to be my next favourite "holiday" XD
Just think about it =)
You get to dress up like halloween, buuut less work is involved
Plusssss there's so many things with hearts on them @_____@
My bf and I went on a random shopping trip to the states again XD hahahaha

Picked up some things that we can't get here...like all of it!
 And I think I found my new favourite lip balm ommggg it's sooo good
Okok I'm going to admit, I've been seeing the signs of aging
especially around my eyes and lips.  D= lines so not hot

Such bad timing because I bought all these nice lipsticks but I can't wear them because it just looks terrible.  Sometimes I think it's the combination of my dry house and age.

Lip balms don't work for the most part...Like all the lip balms I used to swear by no longer cut it for me T__T;;

I thought I had to just stop wearing lipstick.. It was really that bad.  I wasn't even looking out for this lip balm today but my lips were so dry and I forgot my lip balm..again XD;;

It has some shimmer but I can't say it has pigmentation, which is fine because I love it as a lip balm...which it clearly says on the side of the tube XD

I do like the packaging, it has the company name, then the description of what it does XD

BTWs I looove this toner.  It sucks that I can't find it in Canada anymore.  I was watching kokolaroo and she was raving about this toner and how it's the best toner she's tried.  My god she was right O__O

I love the way it makes my skill look ^___^

Here is a close up of what it says it does
This is part of Boots Botanical line
Which I really love their eye makeup remover too

Also I'm super excited to try this foundation.  I found it in Rite Aid.
I'm only iffy on cream foundations but look at the spf!!
I love powder sunscreen I thin it's so multi purpose, but this is even more multipurpose!

I only got to test this out on my skin so far, I don't know about lasting power, but it's definately a sheer to medium coverage.

Packaging is kind of stupid though...buuut it's more sturdy than the maybelline dream smooth moose.

This is their lightest shade which is in classic ivory I think.  I got rediculously pale in the past couple of weeks for some reason...
@__@ I hate it when my skin does that
this is why I wanted a new foundation

I really like that it's sheer to medium coverage though.  I like my high coverage, but at the same most of my time is spent casually so I don't really want to look out of place with my face full of makeup lol

Remember this?  Yes this is my second one.  I think this is the first cosmetic related thing I got a two of because I finished the first one! XD

Though this time I got it in medium beige.  You gotta be careful, even if you're on the paler side, get a shade down because it really gives a white-ish cast.  (probably from the sunscreen)

And finally!!!
The new physician's formula stuff I've been lusting after!
I saw a bunch of gurus on youtube buy this and I knew that vancouver wouldn't have it D=

LOL I totally need these in my life XD

I'm still kind of confused as to whether these are finishing powders or highlights...
They're on the shimmery side..but not very shimmery.  If it was a highlight it'd be a very muted finish.
Why I didn't get everything is because I don't need a million bronzers, I have alot still.  I'm still not very big on bronzers and I didn't get their blush is because it's a very rosey colour. 
I look terrible with rosey colours mostly and I have a crap ton of blushes still @___@

Which I love so I didn't bother.

Hey  I love packaging but I still want to love the product ^__^

Close up view, this one's called beige

and this one's translucent

Each compact comes with a mirror and a brush underneith

I'm still not a big fan of their brush, buuut this is actually alot nicer than their normal brushes @__@ I may use them afterall XD

This also have a nice lavender scent to them!  Ohhh it's so fun putting this stuff on ^___^

^___^ my skincare stuff are getting love !

So as of right now I just used up my Arbonne corrective eye creme!  I know I should be sad because it's a really good eye cream, but I already have my next eye cream that I know I'll enjoy >=)

I honestly don't remember when I started using this, but the packaging says that after opened I have a year to use.  Which I didn't take thaat long, but I think I used it enough to think it's good value for the price!

I have to thanks this eye cream for saving my eyes from so much damage.  A combination of winter's intense cold, and extremely dry central heating system and tugging on my eyes with contact lenses, my eyes looked like they belonged to a girl of late 30s

Not cool >=/

I think I've learned my lesson with contact lenses and well taking care of my skin in general.

You think i would have learned that by now.  LOL

I can never get past how fragile the eye area really is @___@

Oh daiso, you get me every time =/

So I've been wanting one of those hair bands that have wires in them so I can do that cute hair style when my roots grow in XD

Also when my hair is up I like to put lots of decoration because I think it looks plain without it?

All in all I think I went a little crazy on hair stuff at daiso lol

And to think all I went in for was a nice container that won't leak to put my olive oil in, which I did find thankfully

I don't know how it'll perform yet, but here's hoping!

On a side note about olive oil, originally I used olive oil to take off my makeup because I didn't want to keep on buying new expensive eye makeup remover.  Because I use it up so quickly, it broke my wallet very easily x___x
But then I realised I stressed my eye area less, because I'm putting less chemicals there.  My eyes have taken a break from chemicals for a while and they are thanking me =)

OOOOhhh I forgot to meantion that those keychain things on the bottom right of the photo are hair ties actually.  They're made specifically for odango hair style!

I saw my cousin's friend use it in Shanghai while I was visiting @___@ damn she is so pretty
