Summer is coming to an end. That dreaded gloomy weather is making it’s way. I don’t really hate it all that much, I actually love autumn & autumn clothings. Layering, scarfs, gloves, a knitter’s paradise.

Here’s my end of Summer GIVEAWAY to prepare us all into a new season, the season of hibernation & staying at home.

When working in a yarn shop, this happens. You pretty much end up working for yarn & I am ok with that.

Working in a yarn shop

Working in a yarn shop

I have been helping out at a local yarn shop since summer and it’s been relaxing & fun so far, not to mention a total dream. Christmas season hasn’t quite arrive yet so all the crazy people still hasn’t made an appearance.
Since I am surrounded by yarn the entire day, well it makes me want to buy everything. Of course, who would want to work in an yarn shop if it was not for the love of knitting.
Anyway, I’ve been eyeing these for some time now & decided it was time. Drops 100% Alpaca, so soft~ I bought these for upcoming Blythe sweater projects. They come in a bunch of lovely shades but I only bought the heathered/mix colors. There’s still a few colors short that we won’t carry in the shop, so I’m trying to make that happen. LOL Super excited, can’t wait to try these out.

I haven’t mention but I always going back to work to a full-time job now & I’m still helping out at the yarn shop once in a while. Less time to knit… But more money for beauty products. hurray! More posts! I’ll try my best anyway. I’ve gotten so use to working from home and for myself and now having to go back out to work is though. Going to take a while to get use to time adjustment & working on a schedule.

Oh, planning a little end of summer giveaway coming right up, stay tune.



Here we go! A few more recently finishedproducts here.

Recently Finished Products


LG Care Bamboo Salt Toothpaste Tooth Care
I like my bamboo salt! They tend to be a little on the pricey side.

Brown Rice Moisture Shampoo
Gifted to me, I’ve finally manage to finish up this giant bottle. I don’t particularly love it or hate it. Especially, a lone shampoo without conditioner?!? My dry hair needs conditioner!

Ishizawa Lab Mangosteen Peeling Gel
By far one of the best peeling gels around, even HG approves, this bottle was mostly used up by him.

kracie facial cleansing foam (rosehip)
I really didn’t like it in the beginning but it grew on me. I found it useful for days where my skin was a little on the dry side. I won’t buy another though.

hadalabo tamagohada daily foaming wash
I found this to be just ok but I like it for it’s convenience. That pump so handy, I found myself using it a lot because it was there & easily accessible. The light foamy fluffy texture is great, cleansing power better than average. Lasted quite a long time.
