- I was extremely amazed (and amused) at how a pair of lashes would make a difference to one’s look. Specifically the Ardell 120 lashes that Sophia (of the makeup blogette) recommended me. I had a very weird night out last night as I went through a tipsy conversation partner and a friend who turned touchy. And I really would give my poor 5″ heels a rest because I turn out to be 170 and the
menboys in the club(s) were barely eye-level to me. Talk about overcompensating.
- Burberry now has a counter at Tangs Orchard! For more details, visit Jacqueline of My Beauty Hoard here, she has purchased the items and hurray to the pricing; as Jacq reported that they are on par with the US prices. I’ve done my homework at Neiman Marcus and you definitely get a run for your money if you purchase Burberry during the Tangs 12% rebate promo. But as per rebates go, I really hate it because I tend to forget about my points and they expire within six months.
- It was a great day for packages on Friday, as I got my epic EMS package from the US whereas two friends received what I’ve sent out too. Hello to new loots, but I wouldn’t be doing a post on the entire package contents as they mostly belong to Luna and Sophia. I have a puny 11 items out of 42, hee. I’ve been good *glups* #undeclaredhaul
- I fell really hard for the LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL in GARDÉNIA, which I received a sample vial of from my recent Beiges purchase. The LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL is a virtuoso collection of 12 rare fragrances created by CHANEL Master Perfumers and is only available in Chanel boutiques. And they definitely don’t come cheap, which spells disaster for my pockets.
- And in other news, I’ve gone back to black (or very dark brown), officially turning a year older in a week or so, and been busy with reevaluations. Of self-worth, of importance, of friendship, of cosmetics and basically trying to get rid of clutter. And I think I’ve grown wiser for the best of it.
Cheers to tipsy but cute pick-up lines, a great sunny Sunday, lots of exciting news in the beauty scene (Tom Ford I love you but not your prices) and impromptu sightseeing. If you are looking for an alternative to the usual movie-dinner routine, I highly recommend the National Museum of Singapore this weekend. The installations were spectacular, particularly this gallery of a war photographer who shoots in black & white film. His quotes are definitely thought-provoking as he explores the conflicting issues of values defined by religion and yet violated by violence. I know I’d be back later in the week to see the installations more closely for myself. And in more comfortable clothes of course, haha.
