Friday Kenzo Sales

So did you manage to go and get your stuff?

What are available? Homme and femme perfume, facial and body care and some gift sets but with limited range(s).

However I still manage to get my perfume. I bought a set with three bottles of 15ml perfume. Usual price at mall is S$105 but I only paid S$45. Rather good deal and Useful for me as I can carry it in my bag.

I bought its bamboo serum and form facial wash to try. Will review them when I try.

Actually it's body moisturize feels good. Non sticky after application. But don't wish to spend too much so didn't get them. Maybe next year I will buy and try. Haha.

Anyway now my colleagues and I are waiting for Dior sales, which we believe will be in mid of December. So do look out for my future sales post!!

Oh by the way, today Metro is having their card's member private sales at Paragon. Storewide 20% off. Have a great cool Xmas shopping weekends. Cheers.

Laptop cover

One of my best buy from G Market. A 11.6 inches dark brown laptop cover.

Material is quite spongy but not too thick and heavy. Quality is good and it fits my laptop nicely and the pockets are useful to store speakers, mouse, thumb drive etc.

Of course I do not really carry my laptop around. So it still looks as good as before.

Price, I cannot remember the exact price, should be around $15 to $20. Quite worthwhile. : )


Hydrating Skin Food Mask

Still remember I got Skin Food masks from G Market. Currently using one of them, call Skin Food Cucumber Soothing Mask. Now I am really into mask in tub as I will use them during my bath. Really quick and save time.

Usually I will use three different type of mask concurrently. A scrub, a clay and a hydrating mask. Today my review will be on a hydrating mask:

Skin Food Cucumber Soothing Mask Wash Off

Texture: Gel

Aroma: Light cucumber fragrance

Colour: Light greenish

Verdict: Neutral with this. Effect is not as great as sheet mask but this could be because I leave it on for less than 10 minutes. Whereas for sheet mask I use for 20 minutes or more. however I do not mind buying again or I may find other alternative.

Cheers.



Another mask: 2 in 1 Scrub mask.

The Body Shop - Honey & Oat 3 in 1 Scrub Mask

Got it during a sale but cannot remember how much is it. Have been wanting to try this but find The Body Shop mask rather expensive. Usual price for one is around S$20 to S$30 for 100 ml. Finally got this for less than S$20.

Also use this during my bath. Apply for 5 to 10 minutes after face wash. Then rub it and rinse.

Texture: Creamy with small particles

Aroma: sweet honey oat smell

Colour: Beige and brown for the particles

Verdict: like its fragrant. The scrub is very gentle so if you do not like rough scrub, this will be ideal. Very convenience as it is a combination of scrub and mask. Will buy again if I cannot find another good scrub mask but maybe during sales. Cheers.

The Body Shop Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask

Bought this mask for my husband as clay mask is good for oily skin. It will help to absorb oil, dirt etc. Last time I will do DIY clay mask but now too busy so buy ready mask instead. To save time. However my husband is too lazy to use it. So now I will use it during my bath. For about 10 minutes. Since I will only use for such a short period, usually I will apply a thin layer of it and let it dry. Thick layer will take longer to dry. While waiting for it to dry, it will have a warm effect.

Texture: Thick clay mixture

Aroma: strong clay smell

Colour: Gray

Verdict: i am neutral with it. Work like a normal clay mask but rather expensive. Cost more than S$25. Will only buy again if there is offer.

Clinique Chubby Stick

It has been awhile since I buy a lipstick because I always too lazy to apply it. However recently my lips seem paler and my ex-colleague keeps recommend Clinique's Chubby Stick. Telling me how nice and easy to use.

So I decided to give it a try. However I got no idea which color to choose. So i decided to give its gift set a try so that I can try some of its color. There are two types of gift set.

One of the set, the sticks are in original size and come in 3 shades. If I didn't remember wrongly DFS are selling less than S$70. The other one, the sticks are smaller in size but comes in 5 shades. Currently, there is a promotion on it. Usual is S$52, now is selling at S$48. Hong kong is selling at HK$330. Luckily I didn't buy at Hong kong.

Anyway I got the set with 5 shades. The color are 01 richer raisin (purplish brown), 05 chunky cherry (pinkish red), 07 super strawberry (dark pink), 12 oversized orange and 14 curvy candy (pink). Tried 3 out of the 5. They are quite moisturizing as lips will not feel dry and the colors are quite obvious. But don't expect the color to be super lasting. Till now I still cannot decide my favourite color. Lol.

Cheers.


My new card and hand phone holder

My office holder is dying soon so I'm starting to look for alternatives. As sometimes my outfits don't have any pocket so quite difficult to carry my hand phone, cards etc especially when I am carrying my naughty son.

So this time round instead of finding a card holder, I look for a hand phone casing with cards compartment. Not easy to find as I am looking for more of a pouch to hold my hand phone. Found one at Bugis but only in pink colour and cost more than S$20.

So went and search at G Market. Finally found one and costs less than $10 including mailing cost.

Received in less than a week and the quality is not too bad. Usable. My only worries is its main button. Let's see how long it can last. Anyway I also order another two with plastic covers from taobao.com during my visit to China. I believe one is the same holder and the other is a different brand. However still waiting for my mother to bring back as they have not arrive when I left China.

Can't wait to get hold of them. Cheers.



Kenzo perfume sales

I'm looking for a perfume for myself. Kenzo is one of my choice as I love the perfume's bottle design. Lol.

However I'm also looking at other choice such as Kiehl's and L'Occitane.

Tomorrow Kenzo is having a one day perfume sale. Just nice for me to take a look. :)

Btw Sitex 2012 is on! From today till 25th November. 11am to 9pm daily. It is at Singapore Expo hall 4B, 5 and 6. I will like to go but difficult to bring my son.

My one and only birthday gift

My birthday has came and gone for less than a month. This year celebration was rather simple. Maybe age is catching up, birthday seems less important and don't really want to celebrate much.

A meal with my husband and presents!!! Oops sorry this year only 1 present!! A Kate Spade bag. Not my usual style bag as it is rather small and formal. However I think I am lacking such bag. Rather useful when I have more formal functions. Of course I don't have much function but occasionally I will have wedding dinner to attend. And this bag will come useful!!!

Cheers. :)

My cooking

Every weekend if i do stay at home, I will try to cook for my husband and myself. As our area got limited "makan" place. However I prefer one dish meal as I am too lazy. Lol.

Thus usually I will boil soup. Easier to cook and I love soup. So I will add meat such as pork rib for my husband and vegetables for myself. Healthier too as less oil etc.

Here are some of my soup that I cook.

New shoes from Mitju

When Mitju is having 20% off for every 3 pairs of shoes purchase, I got 3 for myself. 1 pair is still waiting to be transfer over to the Bugis outlet. Anyway it is the same design as the left pair except it is in almond colour.

I find the shop at Bugis has limited designs. Think the 1 at Plaza Singapure is better! However it is not so convenient for me to go there. Maybe next time.

Anyway I have enough shoes for now. So now no more buying for me.

Cheers.
