Holiday Spirit

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” I can’t get this song out of my mind. Tomorrow is Christmas time. YAY!!! Is everyone done with Christmas shopping yet? How about some Starbucks Caramel Brulee Latte to warm you up? It’s my new favorite holiday drink. Wish they make the frappuccino version as well. Want […]

Lunasol III – Noble Shade Eyes

Today I’m going to share you with my Noble Shade Eyes. This was part of the Red Purification collection released in Fall 2008. Since the brand focus on red lipsticks for the season, the eye shadows are much more low-key compared to the Sheer Contrast Eyes which was released a year ago. It resembled the […]

Coffret D’or I

I’m thinking since I already started writing about Lunasol, why not show you some of my Coffret D’or as well? Coffret D’or is another line from Kanebo Cosmetics, launched in December 2007. It replaced the company’s other brand T’estimo for point makeup and Revue for base makeup.  In French Coffret D’or means box of gold, pronounced […]

AeroGarden vs. Power Plant Pro

Hi all. Today, I am going to share you my recent experience with some indoor gardening. By any means, I’m no green thumb, not even brown thumb, however I do find it doable and pretty fun. On the market, there’re 2 major companies that make the indoor gardening system, AeroGarden and Prepara. I happen to have […]

Lunasol II – Sheer Contrast Eyes

As far as I know, Lunasol and some other Japanese cosmetics brands always make 4 major releases each year, that including Spring, Autumn being regular items and Summer, Christmas time (Winter) being limited edition. Sheer Contrast Eyes was released as regular Spring items in 2008. There were also […]

Pre-Christmas dinner

It was raining and very windy tonight so we’re staying home from busy Christmas shopping. My husband made dinner and even posted below. How sweet of him! So here is it from my lovely husband. “I decided to cook some stuff out of the ordinary tonight. So what I present to you is two dishes […]

Lunasol I

This is one of my favorite Japanese cosmetics brands, also requested by my friend Mihoko. So I’m going to take sometime and write about it. Background: I started liking this brand about 3 years ago when my friend brought me an eyeshadow palette from Macau. It’s the Prismatical Eyes 04 Blue variation. I’ve never seen […]

Christian Dior Cristal Boreal – Crystal Gloss Jewel

This is my 2nd Dior Christmas item. The first one was last year’s Night Diamond face powder. The company made 2 variations but we only had beige in the US market. The same thing happened this year again. We got the #251 Pink Crystal but not the #001 Pure Crystal. I wonder why Asian markets […]

Weekend Randomness

Yesterday when I was at Kinokuniya, I saw these cute little things called “Egglings“. Since I’m really into indoor gardening lately, I instantly fall in love with them. Basically you crack the top of the egg, pour in some water and wait for it to sprout. Weeks later you’ll have your little plant coming out […]
