The Week #1


I missed the lovely weekly updates I've been doing for my 100 Day Spending Ban, so I decided to continue doing such, with another title... :)

Period covered: 10 - 19 June

Yes, indeed this is a little cheat as I'm thinking to do these every Saturday, while my last spending update published on a Wednesday...

The Week in Acquisition

1.  Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF50+ PA+++ HKD $63.60 (33 g)
A very reserved purchase.  After downing a small travel size of the blue version (for face and body) - post link! - I decided this is Black Jacq material and had to repurchase.  When I saw the double discounted price tag at Mannings, I gave in and picked up a silvery tube (for face).  I am loving it!

2.  Delivery - US Swap
Another swap with beautiful Traci arrived.  It came later than expected but more than I imagined!  Needless to say, I'm happily spoilt.  (will do separate post)

3. Delivery - iHerb Order
Another order made, due to two main reasons.  First, mum and her colleagues want more of the Reviva Labs skin creams, so I had to order for them.  Another reason being, Mychelle was 20% off brand-wise so I had to pick up something.  (will do separate post)

4. Delivery - Nanogen Order
Replenished for Mr A, and giving one product a try myself.  

5. Delivery - UK Mail
Sam sent me more stuff, after she realized she did not send 'enough' in the previous prize package.  More on her generous craze in another post!

6. Book Fair 
Subscribed to three magazines and obtained a bag load of beauty products.  I actually consider this a beauty shopping with free magazine subscription as gift, fair, no?  Also, some lady at the Vivi counter told me Gla magazine is being discontinued by the Japan publisher, bad news; I really heart that.

7. Tom Ford HKD $650
Mr A and I spent an afternoon strolling from one mall to another, ending up with a brush splurge at Lane Crawford (department store).  Which is the first brush I acquired?  Answer is on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.  Should be counted in next week!

The Week in Blog Posts

Weekly Favourites

Tom Ford Cognac Sable 
Can't stop using this for 5 consecutive days.  Its good size mirror and luxe case is a perfect touch up compact to carry along in my hand bag, too.  

Biore Watery Cleansing Fluid
Smells lovely, this gel-ish fluid replaces cleansing oil to remove my face make up.  Leaves skin comfortable, fresh and soft!
