Life Update | Post Nuptial

Mr A and I tied the knot on the 10th, i.e. the reason why I haven't blogged for a while, also the reason why I went to Koh Samui last week.  The (wedding) day has been well-documented by phone cameras and shared on facebook.  However, official works from our photographers are still under process.  I do have a few images to share with you though :)

No, I didn't do my own wedding make up nor hair, except for being my own touch-up artist from 8am - 6pm.  I am satisfied with my MUA Livana, who's super sweet and has baby-like skin, especially in the way she arranged my hair, and did my brows.  I do have regrets though, nothing major; say, in a rush, I forgot to paint my lips red in my red gown, resulting in a somewhat washed-out but gentler look (I still prefer my fierce bright reds!)...

Other Updates:

Koh Samui is fantastic.  Mr A and I had never been to Thailand before and this trip gave us a very positive impression, despite the tropical stormy weather (we are used to that in HK anyway).

Went to CosmoProf Asia and had some great time.  Saw and learnt a lot of tricks behind the trade.

Officially godparent of a two year old.  She is an adorable angel~

Making/made a trans-Pacific Sephora order through Ari, who managed, through obstacles, to find me an Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette.

I'm currently settling down in my new home, self-teaching/learning housewife 101, and chasing a new TV drama by the legendary Dayo Wong (wikipedia link).  Will be posting more posts when I find time to, God knows how many products I've acquired and want to share!

Sales Alert:

Camera Ready Cosmetics is doing a 20% store-wide discount to celebrate their renovation.  27th through 29th November.

Tao (aka iamgrape1119) is doing a blog sale.  I am proud to announce that I managed to snap up a used UD Naked 1 Palette from her.  Yes, #stalker.
