The Week #13

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.

The Week in Acquisition

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.

Flower Your Nail $88 /set - which is worth $123, apparently~
Help My Finger UV Diamond Top Coat $40
& Rose Flowering Nails #2 Velvet Rose $58
Sweet Recipe Cotton Candyball $25

gift: Etude House Natural Mask "Pomegranate"

Human Hair Korean Eye Lashes "001-1" $10 /pair

3.  MAC at Sasa Supreme
4.  Gift from Sasa

Had an make up consultation-slash-trial appointment at the MAC counter, inside Sasa Supreme, CWB, which resulted in a medium sized purchase.

Will write the MAC stuff in another post.  The purchase costed me somewhere around $700 so I got another box of the SkinPeptoxyl Daily Micro Peel Mitts Cell Renewal Treatment.  And being a VIP, I got a little birthday gift from the store as well: SkinPeptoxyl Advanced Eye Lifter Matrixyl 3000.

5.  Souvenir from North America

Nail art set from an aunt.  To be pictured later~

#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...

Progress Update:
Not bad.  In fact, I am somewhat surprised at myself that I can still sneak time to go shopping.  Haha.

Progress Overall:
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 |

Weekly Favourites

The Body Shop Banana Shampoo & Conditioner - My hair loves loves loves these.  Mr. A loves bananas too.  Black Jacq status.  (If only these are permanently available...)

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.
