New Years Resolutions

31 Dec

Hello everyone! New Years resolutions list today. Hooray! I didn’t have a list last year and this is what happened.

I got CHUBBY!! OMG! This is a result of not exercising and eating fatty foods practically everyday including fast foods, cookies, chocolate, chips, soft drinks etc.

1. Cut back on the fatty foods and exercise a bit more everyday.
To do that I will plan to have only one (note ONE) fatty snack a week (that means no more buying snacks everyday) and if I have bought a bigger fatty snack I will share amongst my brother and sister.
For exercise, I will enroll in an exercise class and attempt to at least exercise for about 10 mins a day and take the stairs on a daily basis.

2. Cutting back on beauty “expenditures”
I am sure that I have enough beauty products to last someone a lifetime especially makeup so I am putting myself on a no-buy (except for limited edition products can’t say no to that) and also having a strict budget when it comes to purchasing beauty products.

3. Control finances.
My personal finances are such a mess this year due to me finally getting a job. So with the extra income I feel compelled to spend therefore in order to stop this I will keep track of all expenditures and hopefully the Finance class I will be taking next year will help me control my spending habits.

4. Read more.
I want to become more educated and why not use my extra time to read more and perhaps learn more languages.

Well I think that’s it for me. What are your New Years Resolutions?

Review: Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX

23 Dec

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since a skincare review. This is a product that I’ve been using for some time now and I would like to share with you my thoughts.

Description: A sleep-in face mask that will restore moisture into your skin to make it soft and plump with the light gel-like texture.

Review: I’ve been using this product for a while now (approximately 6 months) and I have to say the initial reaction is great but as time goes by I feel as though the mask wasn’t as effective enough. The mask comes with a spatula to make sure that your germy hands don’t contaminate the product. It is a gel like cosistency and works into the skin very well. Absorbs quite quickly and the scent is a light clean scent I have no idea how to describe it. As far as masks go it is a really nice mask but with all masks it is not a necessity so for just one or two effective times I have used the mask it doesn’t break the cost of purchasing it. So I won’t be repurchasing it but those who are curious feel free to try it, it really is a nice mask just not for me.

Cost: $30 approximately online @ eBay

Would I recommend this product? For those who are curious, have money and time feel free to try it, it really is a nice mask just not for me.

More Goodies

23 Dec

Hello everyone! More goodies today. I went to Lush yesterday and thought that I would show you what I got from there. I used to be a LUSH junkie but stopped because it got a bit expensive… kinda how my obsession with Bath & Body Works is waning right now… Anyways, I also go my order from Geek Chic Cosmetics in and reviews+swatches will be coming in the next few days.

From Geek Chic Cosmetics:

Eyeshadows from left to right are Don’t Blink (Timey Wimey/Doctor Who), Newb (Single Player), Ambassador (Big Damn Heroes/Firefly that didn’t happen).

And Lush goodies!

This includes an Each Peach massage bar, Mask of Magniminty, Angel’s Delight soap, 9 to 5 cleanser, small Tea Tree toner, and some toner tabs (which include Dream Steam, Token to the Gods x4, Vitamin C, Tea Tree x2, and Moon&Sun).

I can’t wait to start using these products and testing them out.
