Period covered: 23 - 29 November
Saturday was our last day at Thailand, and I picked up loads of divine smelling SPA products at the Samui Airport. Then after we're back, I checked out the local Sasa and Colourmix and spent &^%$# on three products. Read on to see what those are...

Samui Airport, what a tranquil promenade // Can't take my eyes off the television every 21:30 to 22:30 because of Dayo // Hong Kong Stadium, full day work for the Year of Faith // My stash of quads, from Tom Ford // Tea break with my supportive little sister // Face of the day trying out MAC BB // Sneak-peek of my Camera Ready Cosmetics delivery, notice some Kevyn Aucoin?

The Week in Acquisition
1. Samui Airport
The airport is beautiful. I went into a shop by Harnn, a Spa brand, and bought quite a bit. Then, because our flight was delayed, I walked into the Duty Free and got an extra little bottle of lotion... I'll try to put up a post on my Thailand beauty haul soon. Come back next week or so for that~
2. La Colline @ Sasa
3. Clarins & Bobbi Brown @ Colourmix
I came across very good discounts and I couldn't help but checked out with three dream products.
La Colline Cellular Vital Eye Mask $920 / 30 ml - This may be the best eye mask you can get in the market. One complaint: why didn't Sasa include a free sample (or loads) when I spend this much cash in one go? #ideservemore
My Clarins wish list is metre-long, but when it comes to real purchase, I am pretty self-controlled. Only picked this HydraQuench Cream up when I came across it at $295. The blame goes to Miss Reductionista.
My adopted sister Sam wrote a beautiful review on Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick this week and made me very, maybe overly, interested in it. Obtained one for $260, discounted, in the colour "2 Sand". Check her article out, her shade is "4.5 Warm Natural".
4. Black Friday Sale?
I made an order of Elemis skin care set from an online dealer. #naughtyme
#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.
- No body or hair care product, not even perfume!
- 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...
The ban will end in 10 days, how exciting!
Broke the ban on 23 days. + 3

Must-Read of the Week
My skin is dry and dehydrated all year round, not very sensitive, and slightly combination in the hottest months. Though our skin are not quite alike, I still find Kate the Driveller's updated skin care routine very helpful. Her approach to skin care is cool (that's the simplest word I can relate her to). The Innisfree eye cream, along with the Sisley (saw it on sale for below HK$700 at Colourmix), is competing with Clarins to be my next full size eye cream purchase.
Wish of the Week
Aside from a whole list of Clarins, enlightened by the Reductionista, I'm also intrigued to get my hands on some Sisley and Innisfree. Top of my list: Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Mask, Sisley Sisleya Eye and Lip Contour Cream, Innisfree Soybean Firming Eye Cream.
