mini haul and CHIC!

This evening I found out that Cold storage got sell CHIC magazine with free gift... and when I show it to my mum... she wants it! lolx
It's the older range of Revlon Crushed Velvet lipstick In 200 Racy Rouge shade.
My mum love it!!! Her fave shade!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bought 3 copies for her! lolx





Do check out your nearby cold storage if you want the lipstick ^___^

I got my EDM long handle kabuki brush yesterday, washed and tried it just now!!!
I love it... I hate my old kabuki brush.. if become more and more pokey!

Garnier UV blocking lotion!



I have been using Garnier UV blocking lotion for more then 2 years now. I really love it... after trying so many other brands, I still prefer this! It's very moisturizing, give good sun block power and it make my skin look radiant!!!! And it cheap.. only $14.90 ^__^

Anyway, I have so many CHIC magazines lying around.. I was wondering what should I do with it... do you all want it? I can give it to you ^__^ The only downside is that you have to pay for the postage.. which is a $1, who knows.. I might add in some extra free gift for you ^__^

Tag: Regret?

Me and many of the onsugar babes were being tagged by FacesBySarah with an interesting and intense question!!!

Qn:Have you ever had any regrets in your life?


My Answer:
If you ask me this question before... I would say I hardly have any big regrets in my life... only tiny one like..
- I should do that instead of that...
-I should buy that... now I can't get it
-I should be with my family instead of going out with my friends and ects...
The most biggest one was... back in 1994... We all took a couple weeks off from school to stay at my grandma's home.. cos the doctor say she will be gone anytime now.... so after being off from school like 2 weeks.. I see my grandma doing pretty well.. so I told my dad that I want to go to school.... After school that day, I went home with my sister first to change before heading over to my grandma's.But I received a call from my younger sister that my grandma just pass away... "tears" .... Omy, I should just stay instead of going to school!!!
Until now I still regrets that....

And last month, my precious doggies MOMO pass away... and I regrets that I never carry him to sleep even when he want to hide under the bed... I just let him and when I see him cried and then stop breathing, my heart breaks!!! It so painful to even think about it now. I keep going thru over and over the time when he's still alive and I see no sign of him leaving me so soon...

Before he die... he start to cry every nights... we all thought he was having toothaches or somethings... cos he still play, eat and runs about with my other doggies... don't look sick to me...
But the night before he pass away.. he start to cry even more painfully, so I bring him to see doctor... doing whole body blood test and eveythings and the doctor say he very healthy.. so doctor just gave him antibiotic to clear away infection caused by his teeth before doing dental cleaning 10days later (we booked the appointment too), even the vet didn't see death coming! Hai~

I having too many regrets with momo... I should took more videos of him running about, his barking sound and all the stupid stuff he will be doing!

It's kinda like family and friends... you thought that they will always be there and you keep saying.. OK I will do that tomorrow.... and that tomorrow never come until they're gone!!! (So do whatever you want to do fast, don't wait... you might lost the chance of doing it and adding more regrets to your life!)

My other collection!

Few days ago Diana blogged about her other collections...
which I think was a pretty cute post for you all to know the other sides of each other beside makeup!

SO this is my other collection!!! CDs
This is only part of my cds collection... cos the shelving was not big enough for all my on growing collection! I have a box of cds (box size about 1m by 0.5m by 0.5m) and some recently bought cds in my bedroom TV shelving (think about 30copies)




I start this collection around the november of 1995... I still remember my first ever CD by "Caught in the act"(A Germany band)! lolx.. I'm abit late in buying cd.. cos I only own a cd player in 1995 =Þ before I have cassette tapes(really old school right! lolx... I throw away most of it.. which I regret deeply as some already out of prints!)

If you ask me how many cds I have... I think I have around 800plus copies (if I'm not wrong.. I lost count since I move over to the home I'm staying now in 2005)

Beside... I also collection nail polish bottles, Korean Drama set(DVD/VCD), Strawberry item(from earrings/necklaces/display and ects)

SO... what are you other collections???

Collective hauls

I planned to do seperate entries on the stuff I got on Monday, Tues and Wednesday, but something crazy happened!! If you interested in knowing what happened... read it ->> here <<-

Anyway... On Monday.. I received 2 parcels (EDM samples and empty palette I got from a local blogger) and I bought some 02skins eyeshadows from the counter set up outside Bioskin. I wanna get their loose shimmering pigments... but end up getting eyeshadows instead!!
I know... I'm crazy, cos I have been complaining about their eyeshadows (I got 2 a couple months ago.. and the texture not creamy and it hard to blend)... then one of my friends told me her's are OK... hmm.... so since it's only $1.90... I'm giving it another chance =Þ

These are what I got on Monday

12 O2skins eyeshadows

empty palette from local blogger

EDM sample.. wanna try out their olive range!

Tuesday: I got a new eyelashes curler (cos my old one just pass away- RIP)
This curler have been a rave in Japan and it well recommended by Kevin(Taiwanese makeup artist)
A full range of Acnes facial products for my sis(no pic... cos she took it and using it already! lolx)


Today went to Orchard with my bff to pay for the Rimmels workshop and do some shopping ^__^
Planned to check out MAC Naked Honey at DFS and buy presents for our bff , but it was so late when we reach Orchard... so we only shopped at O2skins(bff first time trying their eyeshadows) and a nails store on 3rd floor(or 4th??) . And by the time we finishing our purchases... almost all the stores were closing... lolx... we gonna find another day for present hunting ^__^

I got these today

O2skins eyeshadows

Very beautiful dark shimmering navy blue (Member 40% off.. only $9.54)

2 DNC nail polishs for S$16 (S$8.90each), nail art brush S$5.90, empty air-pump bottle for nail polish removal S$4.90 Glitters 2 for S$10 (S$5.90each)

I haven't use any of above O2Skins eyeshadow yet.. so I didn't know how well it works...
But it look so pretty putting all the shadows together! lolx


OK... think I'm gonna stop buying more eyeshadows and makeup for now (got too many waiting for me to try it out).
Unless when I NEED new ones... or the latest MAC collections (Style Black and Makeup Art cosmetic collections in Sept and Oct) =Þ
