Period covered: 5 - 11 October
Sorry - I'm not sorry - that this is half a week late. As a weekly type journal thing, this is borderline a fail. Anyway. I am losing control over things, or rather, letting things go, as time is running short before the big day arrives. Whatever.
The Week in Instagram
A Dreyer's a day keeps depression away, perhaps // MAC haul, a much needed one // Finger candies that allured me // my first this year, and probably last, Halloween manicure attempt // M.C. Sister sharing at our parish feast day celebration. She shared Mother Teresa's quote: The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace. // Chinese Wedding: Milestone of receiving the 'big gift', meaning, my parents considered their daughter 'sold' // Boss of the bus, from the back seat // This week's favourite, or most frequently used in my new bathroom.

1. Korean Beauty Haul
2. Favourite Eye Lashes
Etude House's Tsimshatsui store is new to me, so I went in and checked things out. Came out with three sets of nail polish... I also picked up two pairs of my favourite falsies at the drugstore next door, bringing these in to my wedding MUA to test out.
Pumpkin Moonshine Party Nails #1 Pumpkin Yellow #2 Witch Violet $58 /set - Used Witch Violet for the NOTD I instagrammed, see above.

#100DaySpendingBan #take2 Update
- Starts on 1 September, ends on 9 December.
- No make up or skin care product, unless I totally run out of that category.
- After the ban, [100 - (days I broke the ban)] * $100 will be my bonus money to spend. I'm thinking of something non-beauty related, perhaps something for my new flat, or a good quality hand bag...
- To be continued...
Not bad. In fact, I am somewhat surprised at myself that I can still sneak time to go shopping. Haha.
Broke the ban on 11 days. + 2
The Week in Blog Posts
| New-in | A small online haul | featuring First Aid Beauty, Daniel Sandler and Melvita~
| Glamabox Unboxing 2013 September |
White Formula Intense Brightening Laser Toner with Tranexamic Acid - So far, this is the only full size toner in use at the new apartment. No complain. It moisturises, soothes, brightens, exfoliates. I use this day and night with normal cotton rounds. As humidity drops a bit these days, I may need to use something more hydrating; but this is a perfect Summer time option. Near Black Jacq, will tell when I use this thing up~
Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Hydrating Serum - Featured in this haul post - link!, it is the only full size serum in use at the new flat, too. It has a fresh light citrus scent, and it sometimes turns milky when I run this in my hands/on my face. Adds a lot of hydration to my skin and honestly seems to make my skin better looking.
