Hong Kong Book Fair Acquisition 2013

I struggled a little whether to post this, now that October is approaching.  Normally, the HK Book Fair is held during the Summer vacation, where students and parents have more chances to visit.  However, since while I was still at school, I haven't been only going for books, but for more...

The beauty-related part, fashion magazine subscription with amazing goodies...

Finally, the books, which are pretty self-explanatory and I'll save time from typing them out~ Basically just some Christian books, especially one on Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, a book for work, and some other leisure reads~ :D

Have you bought any books recently, and are there similar magazine subscription deals at your place?

Cosmetics of the Last Century

My friend Ari, whom I knew through blogging, tagged me to do A Piece of History post, which basically is to talk about old make up.  Read first her sharing here - link! - and then move on to read mine!

Finished Fortnight #19 | Stressful September



As we count-down to the last two months, approaching the Big Day.  I finally realise I must stop procrastinating, and get things done.  It is starting to intensify, the stress, and I'm getting eczema instead of sleep.  Not good.  I'm still very happy to share what I've used up and threw out every other week, hopefully, as this makes me happy in an absurd way.  Please bear with me as the sharing will be shortened and perhaps all over the place though, as is my current life and belongings! >.<

The Week #8

Period covered: 31 August - 6 September

On the last day of August, H brought me to a Shiseido workshop.  First time visiting their 'training centre'-ish salon and was stunned by the free testing area.  No sales pressure, no busy pedestrian traffic, it is like a Japanese cosmetics heaven.  After the workshop we were given some samples to test out, along with a letter/voucher.  Naturally, I took advantage of the voucher and went shopping for the one Shiseido product which impressed me most (and most affordable, and one that is least redundant to add to my current stash).  With the letter, I 'earned' another two pretty generous samples with purchase.  Yet, that isn't the end of the story.  H and I visited a newly revamped enormous Sasa store.  The Sasa is so big that it houses Bobbi Brown, MAC, Anna Sui and Banila Co. counters!  Did some damages to our wallet there, and left with a grin and heavy bag.  Now I'm totally ready for a spending ban!

In September, #100DaySpendingBan #take2 started, and if you know how well (or bad) I did.  Then keep on reading!

Hit Pan #9 | MAC Trip Palette Bronze

To begin with, let me confess that, in fact, only the lightest shade in this palette has achieved hit pan.  However, it is none the less a good time to give this palette a mention overall, as I also really enjoy the other wells in this tin.
