Update and Drugstore Haul

Hey guys!

I hope everyone has been well and keeping warm. The past week I've been sick and feeling quite miserable. I become such a baby when I get sick, but I'm very lucky to have a beau who takes awesome care of me. With his nurture and care, I'm definitely feeling better, the only thing remaining thing I need to get rid of is this runny nose.

I've also been trying to slim down. I started way back in July and I'm very happy to say I've successfully shed 10 pounds. I still want to drop another five to 10 pounds, but I'm pretty content where I'm at. Now I just need to tone, tone and tone. To be honest though, it's very cold and I hate going out to the gym to sweat and walking back home sweaty. I may have to bust out Insanity or my yoga dvds.

As of makeup, I've been trying very hard not to spend so much on it, but these damn makeup companies make it so hard when they come out with something new every month. Now I try to shop smarter and read the reviews before I buy. The picture below is an accumulation of purchases over the past two months. I will post reviews of the products when I finally use them.

The very coveted Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo Cream Eye Shadows in: Tough as Taupe, Bad to the Brozne, Audacious Asphalt and Bold Gold

From L to R:
Revlon PhotoReady Airbush Foundation in Nude
Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam foundation in Nude
L'Oreal 24hr Infallible Eyeshadow in Bronzed Taupe, Iced Latte, Amber Rush, Midnight Blue, Continuous Cocoa and Eternal Sunshine
Revlon PhotoReady Primer
L'Oreal Riche polish in He Red My Mind
L'Oreal Color Riche Le Balm in Rose Elixir (def prefer the Revlon Lip Butters)
Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch
Essie Luxe Effects polish in As Gold As It Gets

NoTD using the two polishes together. I feel it gives a very Lunar New Year look.

A before and after pic of me. The left picture was taken in July while the right picture was taken in mid December. It's not too noticeable, but I definitely feel my face has slimmed down.

Anywho, I hope you all enjoyed my update. I'm also wishing everyone a very Happy Lunar New Year! I especially love this event because it brings back wonderful memories of my grandmother. Be safe and see you all soon.


  1. Hi Beauty.
    I'm trying to get back in shape as well. Mostly because I want to snowboard and I can't do that unless if I'm fit.

    After getting an office job, I definitely work out waaaaay less :(

    What has your diet/exercise been like? I only work out from home ....

  2. *drools all over your haul* I'm Project 10 Pan-ing right now, so I'm having to live vicariously through everybody's haul posts. So much amazing stuff has come out in the drugstore lately and I can't get CPs for any of it ;__;

  3. I's nice when your significant other is devoted enough to provide comfort when we're sick. =) I'm glad you're feeling better.

    I didn't think you needed to lose weight, but if it makes you feel better then :D.


Thank you so much for taking time to read my blog. I read all my comments and appreciate each and every one! ^_^
