It’s been some time since my last friday faves, here’s the first of 2015.

Friday Faves #18

So exciting. New blushes by Majolica Majorca!!! Arghhh! I’m totally get the RD401 + RD303. The redder shades totally work for me. Pink, doesn’t work for me very well. Get it from alphabeautyUK. I am however going to wait a couple more weeks for their spring products to be available. The new Lash King!~ I hope these don’t run out by then.

Love these lavender cut-out version. I’ll probably be getting the plain black one instead. Maybe in the future if I love the black ones enough I’ll get these too.

Friday Faves #18

I’ll still on the fence about this. It’s cute! Available in pink or black version. Regular length or extra long length with pockets.

I can use more earrings. This is totally me, simple & not having to change them out often works for me. You can even choose to have 2 different ones of the 3 or a set if you’re boring like that or a matchy matchy type.

Friday Faves #18

I’ve always been fascinated with these giant fake gauges. I highly doubt I’d get enough use out of it though.

One can never have enough jewelry. I love oxidized rings. HG says it reminds him of LOTR Two Towers. hahaa.

I’m such a shopaholic and I am an enabler.

Yah, starting yet another series which is my Night time Skincare Routine. I will be posting occasionally the products I’ve used for the evening. Sometimes, they change but sometimes I will of course be using certain things on a regular basis until I’ve finish them. Maybe this might be interesting to see or maybe not? Well, at least it’s fun I hope. We all know how important it is to have a routine, especially in skin care. We all wanna stay beautiful right? Makeup does wonders but it all starts with good skin care & upkeep.

Night time Skincare Routine

I’ve been a little dry in a few areas last few days. Felt like I needed that extra exfoliation to flake off some dead skin so I used both a scrub and a peeling gel. Products in Order of Usage are as follows :

baviphat Black Sugar Honey Scrub  get it w2beauty
I’m not sure if I’ve ever talked about it, but I love it. It’s a great scrub and it doesn’t leave my face feeling oily like a lot of other scrubs does. It smell like cola! It can be a bit harsh since the sugars are pretty coarse but I needed it. It does melt away after a bit of massaging. Don’t think it’s easy to find anymore. I have purchased this a total of 3 times. Mizon makes a similar one but it’s not as good.
Mizon Apple Juicy Peeling Gel  get it amazon g-market
Not my favorite but it’s almost finished, it does the job well enough & the nice apple scent. It’s pretty mild.
It’s Skin WH Effector  get it amazon
I’ve using this for quite a while now. Love it so much. I have notice slight improvement in my skin, thus I will keep using it. The formulation is nice, 1 drop from the dropper is enough to cover my entire face with quick absorbing.
My Scheming Aloe Vera + Vitamin E Mask  get it sasa amazon
I mask at least 2-3 times a week. A bit of redness in my skin, using this mask to calm it down. Mentioned here, but it says is that it brightens, soothes & moisturized. LOL all of which I need.
Algenist Concentrate Reconstructing Serum  get it sephora
I’ve only started trusting using this for the first time. Let’s see how it goes after a couple of weeks.
Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm get it get it sephora
Along with the Serum, first time using but since I’ve had it sitting around and I’ve been looking for a great eye cream to fix my dark circles & lack of moisture under my eyes. What better time than now to give it a try. Work miracles baby!
Mizon Good Night White Sleeping Mask get it koreadepart g-market pretty & cute
I have been using this for some time now on & off, another product I love. I keep it in my fridge for that extra cooling effect. It’s a very light gel texture, absorbs well. I’ve been really getting into sleeping masks, I need more in my life. This sleeping masks started it all. It does make give a brighter complexion the following day.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this night-time skincare routine post. I totally skipped on a moisturizer tonight. Lazy you know…
do you have a night-time routine or regimen you follow? I tend to change mine pretty often.

Yes, this is all about me & stuff. As you may have notice my posts have really slowed down the last few months. Well, grown up stuff, work consumes all. The need to support oneself is boring but a necessary evil. Not to mention blogging does take a bit of energy to prep posts, take photos, edit them and have something witty to write about right? Especially with beauty related things! Readers can be so vicious. I have been mainly posting about beauty related things but often I feel it can be tedious, the whole process of writing up proper honest reviews of things. Spell Check, proofread, I’m pretty lazy. Sometimes, I just want to post boring things about my life. No effort required. HAHA

So my question is, do you only want to read about just beauty stuff or would you want to get to know me more as a person? (well it’s not like I write magnificent beauty reviews anyways, I’m super casual about it. Can’t compare to all those great beauty blogs because that isn’t what my blog is just about.) The on goings of my life & hobbies. To begin with, my blog doesn’t have a theme. Beauty just ended up a big part of it by chance. I feel a lot of you who do follow me are here for beauty stuff?

If you’ve read my about me page, it gives a gist of things I like. Everything! LOL

Me & stuff

Candies, sweet, snacks, YES I like! A little too much maybe.

Me & stuff

Massive tea drinker. My life is nothing but tea, water & carbonated water. Really.. Juices, sodas forget it. On the rare occasions, I will have it while out at restaurants but I will never be caught dead stocking it in my fridge by my own means.
My favorites teas : Milk Oolong, Cream Earl Grey & Sencha. Following by various pu-erh, green & black teas. Throw in an occasionally white tea which I haven’t had it quite some time now. I hate fruity teas & any kind of sweet teas with very rare exceptions. Did you know I even visited a tea farm a few years back? I do like to experiment & sample some new flavors time to time. Let’s trade tea? I went into David’s tea recently to repurchase some milk oolong tea. Decided to pick up their cream earl gray since I’ve been out for some time. Sadly, it didn’t live up to my expectations. It doesn’t compare to Granville Island Tea Company’s cream earl gray. Desperate times you know. At least their milk oolong is decent for the price. I will be back for that & nothing else.

Me & stuff

Me & stuff

I’m not one to collect toys but did you know I love One Piece like the rest of the world. Pirates, who doesn’t love pirates. LOL I’ve been holding back for so long but I just open a can of worms. It’s too cute, I really wanted brook or the mermaid princess only because I wanted laboon so badly follow by Megalo. I ended up with Marco & Luffy. I went back & got another and got really lucky, 3 times a charm. I now have Brook/Laboon !! There’s this hobby toy shop that I sometimes go by and I’ve always went in and only LOOKED but avoided buying, now it’s too late. Now it’s like, I’ve started might as well collect more… Fortunately I don’t live too close to the store. Oh look I even snagged a Mario chocolate egg, I think there’s a toy inside? Maybe? Maybe not? I won’t know because it’s being sent away.

I’ve also been knitting as much as I usually do, which is all the time! I’m currently knitting up a Color Tipped Scarf. Hopefully, I’ll post some photos when I’m finished. I’m pretty bad with keeping track of my knitting projects. I have a Ravelry account but I almost never make full use of it or update my stash or projects, follow me if you got Ravelry! I mostly use it to search for patterns but I’ll try to update it more, “try” being the key word.
My Beekeeper’s Quilt is still an ongoing project which will likely take me years to complete. LOL

When I’m knitting I’m also watching shows. I admit, I watch a lot of netflix ir not anime. At least I’m always knitting when I’m watching so I feel like I’m making good use of my time. My favorite type of shows? I admit, I love British Television! I love period pieces, fantasy & supernatural flicks.
TV shows I’m following these days : Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow, Walking Dead, Reign, Once Upon a time, Vikings, etc etc. I following a lot of shows. LOL

Now when I’m not doing that I’m probably playing video games. I’ve been going thru some oldies to finish things I might not have fully finish the first time around or just replaying old favorites. I do however try not to have too many games going because often, I end up abandoning a few and forgetting about them only to have to restart them from the beginning to refresh my memory. What I’m playing these days : FFX-2, Dragon Age, Animal Crossing, Shin Megami Tensei 4, Legend of Mana, Earthbound, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call & Crypt of the Necromancer here & there. I swear I will not start anything new until I finish a few of these. I’ve also been wanting to get a Wii U but there isn’t any great bundles going on. I knew I would regret not buying the Wind Waker bundle when it came out way back when it did. That’s life. With the release of Super Smash Bros. How can I not have one? I’m am currently not playing any MMOs! Though, FFXIV it always pulling me back.

Phew, this is a long post, I think that’s enough for now. Haha more to come in the future maybe?
