Sogo Thankful Week | May 2015


Sogo the department store has a bi-annual sale festival called Thankful Week.  Do not be fooled by its name, it doesn't last for a week, nor two, but half a month.  It is a great opportunity to stock up on essentials or to try new products, for various brands (from grocery to sportswear, jewellery to kitchenware) will do big % off or value bundles.  Normally I'm not a keen shopper at Thankful Week because all I usually shop for is beauty products and I buy enough, if not too much, outside the sale season.  This time though, my mum and her sister tricked me to Sogo with the excuse of browsing stuff for Roma, and that my aunt is Sogo member so she enjoys rebate, and that they can look after baby while I fool around.  The result?  I not only picked up the sunscreen I need for this entire Summer, but more...


Before I went into Sogo, I did spend time reading the promo brochure from their facebook, and decided that if by chance I can grab a BareMinerals sunscreen set, I would.  Turned out?

#MayBeautyGoals Update

Today is the 6th, and I violated my No-Buy, with reasons/excuses.  Dated my aunt to go collect Master (or Monster) Roma's passport - yay for brain-storming trips with baby, welcome destinations or itin ideas - and then my cousin to Causewaybay.  Need to buy baby a bottle of sunscreen as we're kind of in the middle of Summer now considering the heat and humidity, and we'd like to bring Roma to the pool often.

Shiny Pink Real Techniques | iHerb Haul


This is not the only iHerb damage I've done to my wallet since the last one posted here.  In between this and that, there are plenty.  I shop there about monthly, and post my haul instantly when they arrive.  You know it if you follow me on instagram, which you really should, because I am basically hanging around there 24/7.

This post consists of two orders which were a few days apart.  I forgot why that happened but it did.  Again, my excuse for placing these orders include shopping for family and friends.  But frankly, mainly the stuff is for me...

Beauty Goals for the Month of May


Four precious months of year twenty-fifteen have passed and I'm still the old self.  I feel like staying at home calling myself a mum doesn't justify slacking at taking care of hair and skin, nor the over-spending on retail therapy.  I've drafted some changes I'd like to introduce to my daily life, and will try to implement them this month.

Firm Favourites | Addiction Lipstick Sheer




Addiction is one of the hard-to-get-outside-Japan brands I'm fond of.  Their homepage is easy to navigate and one that I often find myself browsing and re-browsing.  Earlier this month (or late last month?) I saw that they are going to re-do their Lipstick (S) into Lipstick Sheer which will look more or less like Lipstick Pure.  I dug out my three Lipstick (S) and to my may and surprise, all of them will stay.  One (rare) day, I had time to play with make up, applied all three on me and planned this blog post.  Only it took me three weeks (?) to get this done...
