Review: Laura Mercier Secret Concealer (Anti-Dark Circles Moisturizer)

I'd been wanting to buy a new concealer just for the under eyes to cover my dark circles but didn't get any for about a year... until about 2 months ago, I finally bought one!
It is the Laura Mercier Secret Concealer Anti-Cernes Hydratant! ~*TA-DA*~

Collective Haul ~ Venetrim ~ GSS ~ GMarket ~ ZALORA

Its been awhile since I post my collective hauls.. (Besides my Japan trip's) I bought too much things for the past 2-3 months that my mind was clogged up by numbers of things I wanted to review on my blog.. @_@"
I'm still going to do reviews of my own purchased items but would probably be at a later date. ^^

Before I flew to Japan, I rushed to Sasa to get Audrey Christian Venetrim, a vein reducing cream for my legs or rather, for my feet.
My feet felt really sore these few months as I always been running around for events and walking in super duper high speed in and out of office because we're always busy dealing with all sorts of works and not to mention ALL kinds of human beings. lolx~
Anyhoo, I used Venetrim almost everyday during my Japan trip, my feet feels slightly relaxed and not so sore when I woke up the next day. However in Japan, everyday I walked miles for more than 14 hours without resting my feet. My feet starts to ache even worst.
After I came back, I kinda stopped using it totally and only started to use Venetrim again the past 2 days.
I was hoping to do a review of this as I had took a BEFORE picture of my leg & feet, and wanted to see if it do help to reduce my ugly veins after 4 weeks of continuous usage.
Audrey Christian Venetrim (150ml) $79.00 : Sasa Outlet

The brochure that's placed at Sasa. The ingredients used looks great! I do hope it could help solve my veins problem! ^^

GSS Loots

Some stuffs I hauled during the GSS period.
ETUDE HOUSE Happy Teatime Lemon Tea Cleansing Foam $7.90 (-30%) : I'd used the Green Tea, I feel that Lemon Tea is drier than Green Tea. Green Tea gives my skin a smoother after-feel.
JUJU AQUAMOIST Cleansing Oil (-20%) : Bought at BHG. Repurchase.
SANA Nameraka Honpo (Soy Bean) Cleansing Oil $19.90 (-20%) : Bought at BHG. Repurchase.
Cyber Colors Purifying Cleansing Oil in Grapefruit $49.90 (-20%) : From Sasa. Its my first time buying such a big bottle of cleansing oil! To be frank, I'm drawn to its packaging that's why I buy it! ^^" I tried it out at the store on back of my hand, it doesn't feel thick and creamy like the other cleansing oil I'd used. I had yet opened it to try till now, I do hope it won't disappoint me!
Tippys Maxi Squares Cotton Pads $1.95 : Again, bought it cos I like the packaging. =p
Sasatinnie Anti-oxidant Regenerating Face Mask $1.95 (-20%) : From Sasa
L'Oreal Color Infallible in Pink Sapphire $14.90 (-20%) : From Watsons.
Leaders Insolution Vita Bright Mask $3 each (Buy 3 get 1 free) : From Watsons
ETUDE HOUSE Ginkgo Lip Patch $3.90 (-30%)
ETUDE HOUSE AC Clinic Pink Powder Spot Patch $3.90 (-30%) : I find this pretty useful! It soothe and relieve my inflammation over a night

See that big bottle of CYber Colors Cleansing oil?! :D It appeals to me~

Red Gradient Spotty Stripes scarf $10 : At 1 of the stores in B1 of Wisma Atria
Polkdot Mint & Brown Home Slippers $2 : From Daiso
Belif First Aid Aqua Rush Mask $36 (-20%) : This is my 2nd tub! ^^ Really like it alot!~ It quenches my thirsty skin~
Keratinology Colour Therapy Shampoo $11.90 : From Watsons. Repurchase for many times. Its really good~ ^^
L'Oreal Pris Color-Vive Daily Rinse-out Treatment : From Watsons. I think it cost less than $10.. (receipt lost ^^") Its a rinse-out treatment, not a conditioner. So I tot maybe I could give it a try and see how it differs from a treatment and a conditioner.
b.liv Dullness Cessation - Bright is Right Mask $2.95 each (2nd pc @ $1) : Promo at Sasa. It might still be on, so do go now to get them! ^^ I'd used them for numerous times since last year, gota love  them!
ProPeds Premium 20 Denier Glamorous Fashion Thights in Lilac $8.90 : From BHG. I been using ProPeds pantyhose and tights for awhile now, mostly using for Cosplay purpose and I really like the material used. It's silky, shiny, help hides flaws and doesn't tear that easily. Even though it's really sheer, it could still withstand scratches from my broken nails at least a few times without tearing. This is my first time seeing ProPeds having a rainbow range and even black stripes! I didn't saw the rest of the shades as BHG was only selling like 5 shades.

Its suitable for my height and even height up to 180cm. The table shown below is very useful when you want to know if the tights could fit you.

Japan CUTIE Magazine + Complimentary HbG pouch & Body Fantasies 29ml Spray in Pink Sweet Pea Fantasy $17.80 : Kinokuniya
Turqoise wide chiffon Hairband $7.90 : Helen

GMARKET GLOBAL Haul

I finally gotten my first experience of buying stuffs from GMarket Korea (Global). The online buying procedures have now changed slightly compared to the other time which I'd posted about. Its alittle bit easier now however there are still some glitches here and there and you probably need to be quite familiar with e-commerce in order for you to process with your orders smoothly.
All the stuffs I bought this time are cat theme related. Even my cat Mimi also want to be in the picture together with them.....

As I'd been dying to get a new diary book (more like a monthly schedule book for my work & personal), I searched through GMarket and saw alot of [Jetoy] Choo Choo Cat diaries & stuffs so I decided to get more than just a diary (anyways more stuffs = more discounts in shipping fees). After I placed ordered and paid for all my items + domestic (Korea) & worldwide shipping, then there were 2  items being refunded because the seller do not have stock anymore. *disappointed* (≥∆≤)
GMarket also refunded 4600won back to my account as they found out the actual weight of my parcel is less than the estimated weight calculated by their system. Good! (^∇^)
Altogether, I had spent ₩39,700 + ₩12,340 shipping = ₩52,040 (~S$61.30) for the 4 items + 1 free sticker & coupon (Heh Heh~)
Expensive much? I think it's still ok, considering that Singapore sells them at about double the price for Choo Choo Cat stuffs.

Actually, I don't need this blue travel handpouch, but I was REALLY tempted by the prints! Its original price is ₩26.800 but they are selling it at ₩22,780. On top of that, I can still use discount coupon! ^^

I already had a Choo Choo Cat passport cover... but I wanted this transparent one badly too! Its so pretty! (*^_^*)
It includes a Jetoy passport travel schedule too which can layer over your passport or can be inserted at the sides, whichever way you like~

ZALORA Haul

ANOTHER Online haul....
I received ZALORA Voucher through my UOB Card mailer and I couldn't hold myself back because this voucher is $20 off! And can be used on top of GSS items too! Its a common code, so everyone can use it for unlimited number of times!
However Zalora coupons are unlike GMarket, they can only be used once on the total bill. Wherelse GMarket coupons can use on every single items. I think I got so used to GMarket coupons and that mentality make me want to put in more discount codes in Zalora but later find out I could not... lolx..

Here comes my parcel! It was big for only 2 items which I'd ordered. The box's very useful.. I had already kept it aside so I can reuse it to put my stuffs! lolx~

Estelle Multiway Chiffon Blouse $25.40 : The mint green blouse is a GSS item.

Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (200ml) $68 : I used a sample size Exf cleanser and I really like the results it gives me so I decided to purchase the full size product. I think 200ml is going to last me a year, considering the sample size can already last me a few months! ^_^

Before I end this................

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

CNY 2012 Day 2: OOTD ~ ETUDE HOUSE ~ It's Skin ~ Contact Lenses Product Review

Yesterday CNY Day 2, I'd posted my OOTD on Instagram (as shown below). I used several Iphone apps to achieve the following effects. If you wish to download the apps, they are:
Camera360 - Super good camera app! I totally loving it! I had been taking alot of photos using this app, it will not save direct to your photo library yet, but only after you process them, you be able to save them to your phone, otherwise no matter how many photos you take, they will all be stored under the app, categorised by dates. The photos your stored in the app, can be re-edited for countless times without spoiling the original photos. So far, this is the only app I've came across that has the most effects to choose from, i love using it! ^^
iQuikDoF - Best Dof app for blurring out the background so focus is on the subject only. Its easy to use, just paint over the subject and then process it. Painted area remains sharp while others all will be blurred. Blur effect can be from 1 to 100%.
Pixlromatic - Another app that gives many different effects and borders. I usually use Camera360 first to process once, do a iQuikDoF and then use Pixlr to add in more effects for the final touch. ^^

Military OOTD
Navy blue double breasted coat+chiffon cape - Bought from Hong Kong last year, but this is my first time wearing it! ^_^
Beige-Black patterned mini skirt - Bought from Hong Kong. Totally love this skirt x 100000 times! ^^
Grey Houndstooth patterned tights - Taiwan. I also have an exact pair in browns.
Heels - Mondo
Bag - Clares & Keith
White Furry accessory (hang on my bag)- Hong Kong. It was actually double the length of the current, cos my cat Mimi bite it into pieces, this is what is left now =_=
For below pic I didn't use iQuikDoF becos Camera360 app also has blur effect (Tilt-shift in vertical lens).

CNY 2012 Day 1: OOTD ~ Haul ~ ETUDE HOUSE Nymph Aura Volumer Product Review

~ HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR TO ALL!! ^ῷ^ ~

 

Hereby presenting all the Guan Yin Ma who just descended to earth~ Lolx!
CNY Day 1, I didn't plan what to wear like last year, so I just grab whatever I can find, mix & match them at the last min. I only intend to wear the rainbow dotted tights which I bought during my KL trip on last year Dec. Its really super pretty in real life! ^^ Reminds me of mermaid cos of the colourful scales... or something like that ^.^"
Guan Yin Ma OOTD:

YEAH NEW SHOES & BAG for the CNY!!~
I don't really wear wedges but this reddish orange pair from Charles & Keith ($49.90) has quite comfy soft leather material hence I convinced myself to get it, since the wedges are also not those bulky kind. The bulky or thick wedges will make me look like I have super big feet with super skinny legs. =p
The one on the right in camel & denim is from Mondo. Bought it on offer $34.90 ^^
Now that I see, both are like of the same height.. When I wear them, I'm like 180cm+~ ^_^"
I gotten a Charles & Keith bag too @ $69.90. (sadly no discounts on the items i purchased even though they put up a big big SALE sign outside the store :\) I think the bag is their newest arrival which I can't even find it in the C&K website. =_+ Anyhoo, i totally love this bag! ^^

On December, Na & I purchased stuffs from Korea through the help of Amber *muacks!* *\(~.^)
Below shows the purchases for me ALONE! Cost about $170 in total... phew!~ [ $ ] flys*

Of all, I'm most excited for the below items...
ETUDE HOUSE Nymph Aura Volumer #1 15000won: ~ SGD$17.70
ETUDE HOUSE Nymph Aura Loose Powder #1 12000won: ~ SGD$14.10
I'd watched a youtube video (by hover) talking about this product awhile back, so I'm pretty curious to how it actually works.
More Nymph Aura series details HERE.

As some of you already know, when you watch Kdrama/ Kmovie/ Kpop shows you see most of the artists having super smooth & glowy face. At times I wonder did they did too much plastic surgery that their faces shines like plastic? hahax!
Or do they really own a super smooth face that it can reflect lights at all angles? It kind of make me feel envious of their nice glowy skin.  I have glowy skin too when my skin starts pumping oil to surface but its only at my T-zone area. *pouts* (⌐^⌐)
credits to Etude House

ETUDE HOUSE Nymph Aura Volumer Packaging, Ingredients & Swatches:
So much different kinds of oil in the ingredients, i'm afraid that its comedogenic. I got to check through each and every one of the ingredients to know if this product is non-comedogenic.

On CNY Day 1, I played with Nymph Aura Volumer.
The swatches on my hand, were taken after I got home (Not the one I use on my face). 1 volumer to 3 BB cream means 1:3 ratio. The BB cream has to be 3/4 times bigger area than the volumer you pump out, so that your BB cream mix would not be too oily.
And as for the 4 boxes pic that shows my cheek, I forgot to say that the upper row is before I apply Volumer. The bottom row is with a little volumer.


Review of ETUDE HOUSE Nymph Aura Volumer:
The good side is that it did gives slight glow on my skin, not the kind that sebum pumps up from the pores, but more to the healthy glowy kind. For the whole day my face seems to be quite nice to me (Maybe my skin is on CNY mood? lolx~). It didn't pump sebum, hence I need not blot and the slight glowy look is still there till I reach home. I didn't even touch up my face, it seems like its been moisturised well, hence my skin didn't produce sebum to replenish the dry skin surface.
The bad side is, I think it doesn't suit my type of skin. =(
I find by making my face look glowy also accentuate my large pores and those tiny bumps that are all over my face, esp the area between my eyes & nose. The volumer doesn't look very bad nor that good on my type of skin, but it can still be used maybe once awhile for a change, if I feel like it.
I would however recommend the dry skin (with tiny pores) people to try this volumer! I think it will make them look very much like those Korean stars, with super smooth & healthy glowy skin! ^_^

Thanks for reading! Hope all of you had a great day on your CNY Day 1!~ ^o^

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

Product names written and coloured in turquoise were given by its company to me for trial.

CLEO Magazine giving out b.liv free masks! Woots! ^^ (Mimi, why you look so sian eh???)
Mini review of b.liv Fine Line Stoppage Mask
I find these masks very different from all the other ones which I often use. The paper mask material is wayyyyy smoother and silkier. There is excessive serum too that I could even spread them to both my hands and legs. Even if I put on the mask for more than 20 mins (actually I had it on for longer than half hour..cos I was lazy to remove it =p~) I find that the serum is still trapped between my skin and the mask and it felt wet. It didn't evaporate that fast as like my other masks, which is good becos if I forget to remove it, at least my face will not turn dry for having the mask on too long. After removing the mask, I tried to massage face with slightly wet hands and my skin doesn't feel slimy. I feel that the serum have fully absorbed to my skin leaving no trace of leftovers on the surface. Wherelse for other masks, I could still feel a thick layer of serum on skin surface and I'l need to massage it with slight wet hands to get it fully absorbed into my skin.
And now, to review what are these b.liv masks: CLICK HERE & HERE
They are the NEW Original JAPAN Silk Masks! (THAT explains why its silky smooth!)
I think when you buy any b.liv item, you will be given 1 mask free. I'm not sure if this apply to Singapore, as the promotion seems to come from Malaysia. o_O"
However for Singapore, I see that there is a Value Pack where they also give free Japan Silk Mask.

My younger bro helped me to CP some stuffs back from BKK! I do not know the pricing as he didn't tell me how much they cost... hahax~
BOOTS No7 was having promotion, Buy 2 get 1 free! Initially I said I just wanted the Beauty Serum one.. (>w<")
No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Day Cream
No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Eye Cream
No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum
*Does anyone know whats the difference between the pump bottle & the tube one? And whether there's difference between the intense and the one without?

Thanks to someone, I got influenced to get these stuffs too.. *strangles Charmaine* XD~~
Charmaine said that Beauty Buffet also sells this VERY NICE GINO McCRAY palette e/s, but I couldn't find thepic online so I just randomly ask my bro to pick a few e/s and blush :S
GINO McCRAY Pro Make-up Eyeshadow in #02 Black Charcoal, #12 Golden Brown, #09 Peach Pink
GINO McCRAY Heritage Blusher #06 Lush Raspberry
NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base: OHHhh! MY FIRST NARS! Damn that NARS Orgasm is totally OOS in whole of Thailand! WTH.. =_=

GINO McCRAY Blush Close-up (Top-Natural Sunlight, Bottom-with Flash)
The mini glitters are suppose to look more towards gold than silver, i don't know why it can't be captured by my cam. :\

GINO McCRAY e/s & NARS Close-ups

GINO McCRAY & NARS Swatches
Apparently, with or without NARS e/s base, the intensity of the e/s still look the same. However the feel of swatching it on top of the base and without the base was different. It felt more smoother to apply on and the e/s felt silky with base

Random 3D rings my bro & his gf bought for mi! =D Sho nice!! I love love love it! <3
Both are unique its own way! (Left) 3 rings to be worn as 1 (Right) Looks like many rings combined, but its only 1! kekkex~

Hmm.. maybe you might wonder why am I not shopping much in GMarket anymore? kekex..
Here is my latest GMarket haul. Just 1 brown pleather bag? Neh.. I bought a black dress and a pair of shoes too! However, the shoes I couldn't wear cos its small (Will try to sell it here after I take pics). And the black long top.. I forgot to take pic ^^"
But anyways, I love the bag most! Its only $14! (not including shipping yet) And the material is rather good too.


Uniqlo Chino Pants $49.90: Using Uniqlo voucher! Equalivalent to free =p
New Look Turqoise Stockings $9.90
Floral Rose sand socks $3.90
Ruffle top warm grey socks $3.90

Collective Beauty Hauls: Etude House, Nature Republic, Sleek, Crabtree & Evelyn ~ Contact lenses + mini review

To be able to take better pictures at night, I need a new lamp.
And here it is~~ $7.90 Langra Work Lamp from IKEA!!!~ (bulb not included)
Its darn useful! I place it at my vanity, it takes up minimum space. I can even put a round container (contains my cottonpads) right inside the empty space of its base. The lamp head can be flexed up and down, and sideways. I am considering to get another 2 more, 1 for my computer desk, and 1 for photo taking of my stuffs at night. kekex~
*My cat kpo-ing around my lamp.. I switched on the lamp suddenly and he squinted. Then I off it, and I ON it and he squint again! Hahax! FUN! XDDD (animal abuse =p)

2010~2011 Collective & Fashion Hauls: KOSE, SANA, BeautyMaker, GMarket ~ LOTD & OOTD

Everyday, I'm editing pictures of my hauls.. I think I spent more than 2 weeks to finish them, with some breaks inbetween. And here is the reason why I'd spent so much time editing them!
The stuffs were bought way back from Nov till now. And so much LOTD and OOTD that I didn't get to post.. oh well, guess if I post too much of my faces, ppl will puke.. hahhax!

I'm getting reaaaaalllly lazy, I don't think i'm gonna name every item here, so if you girls are interested in any of them, just ask! ^_^
Clicky the links Pics (why i say links? =-=) to enlarge!

BEAUTY HAULS
Na
's recommendation for oily scalp/hair! So i got it the Royal Wind Oil Control Shampoo, with free conditioner at the back~ Not much to comment, it works so-so for me. =)

Ardell Fashion Lashes - 120 Demi: $8.95
Besides Japanese brand lashes, Ardell are also quite popular among the girls in Asia especially China/Taiwan. And most asian girls picked Demi lashes maybe because of their eyeshapes. From Ardell's website, I'm able to find the lashes that suits me by clicking the right category (eg, small eyes, round eyes..)
Their lashes are 100% Human Hair, and that explains why they can only be used a few times. Whats so good about it is that the base of the lashes (the part where it sticks to your lids aka the band) is not made of hard plastic thingy. Its basically transparent glue that holds all the lashes together!
Its soft and fluffy feelin' when I wore them on. ^.^ Likey!!
But no like when I remove them, as the lashes totally flattened out after I put them on table to dry when it was still damp. (Unlike lashes made of plastic!)
The correct method of maintaining it should be, wash/remove adhesive after peeling it off from eyelid, and dry them with towel/tissue immediately(if you do wash them). Air them on table only when the lashes are completely dry, so the curl will remain.


La Roche-Posay Cicaplast : $25.90 -20% (I got it on sales, with 2 free samples given! ^_^)
I'm happy that I'd chance upon Lissasioux's La Roche-Posay Cicaplast review and I must say that I got hold of Cicaplast too on the very day I read it. hahax~
With a little Push from Sophia, I confirmed that I actually NEED Cicaplast. =p
I had rashes on my neck and jawlines and at that moment, my skin was in mid of recovery but still got problems of dry flaky skin when I put foundation on.
So Cicaplast helped me on that. Although the oil bumps still pops up once awhile even with Cicaplast, however it didn't get anymore worst than that.
I also applied it a little over my lips and it felt nice. The edge of my lips are not so dried up and wrinkly feelin' like the usual.
Overall, I will say its very good but not till the extend of being my Holy Grail like what it did for the other ladies. ^_^

Shopping @ NEX.. I went there few times with Jessie, Verlyn, Na (everbluec) and also few times alone.. I got addicted shopping there. ^_^"
I really like this Bourjois eyeshadow pot - ombre a paupieres 05 (Light whitish-pink tone): $19 (-20%). I like the swatch on my hands, it gives a very smooth and nice satin & sheer kinda look. But when its on my eyes, I duno why it makes my eyes look ashy. =_= Probably I'm like, too dark for it? Those who bought this too, do comment!~
Finally, I bought 2-way foundations (my Covermark's running out), one refill from Kose:$57 (usual $60, thanks to Jessie's Isetan card) and another from SANA Natural Resource:$38.90 (-20%, no thanks to Na's recommendation =p~)


Repurchasing my Aqua Label White Protect Sunscreen : $26.90 (It helped alot from making my skin dark/ 'chou tar' from running around under hot sun)
Kose Seikisho Mask White: $35 (with free 5 pc mask! Promo @ NEX)

With help from my friend, Amber who always fly Taiwan every year or 2, I managed to get my hands on Naruko (牛爾 Niu Er's brand) and BeautyMaker (Kevin's brand) products. They are to be bought only online as its not available at the retail stores. I heard that its not that easy to purchase online too, like they need a special card or an account or some sort.
The stuffs shown below belongs to mi and Na's.
-BeautyMaker Color Correcting Eyelid Primer, Aqua Eye Concealer, Magic Concealer (Pen type)
-Naruko Rose & Snow Fungus Class Night Eye Gelly (I keep laughing at the 'Gelly' spelling.. LOLxx)
The shade I chose for my concealers are the medium shade (Beige 粉膚/自然膚色)


A small gift of face spray(?), cos i din order this ^_^"

Now for my Favourite part, Concealer swatches!! (Due to some pics were taken during different time of the day, hence the colour differs...)
I like the fact that the magic concealer is as peachy as MAC studio finish NW25, I now use both to conceal my -hopeless- dark circles. ^3^
And for concealing spots on my face, I mixed Aqua eye concealer with MAC C25 concealer.


I really am in love with the night eye 'gelly' (teehee~). Everytime I apply them on my undereyes, it felt so soothing. It has a rather strong smell of rose.. and kinda mix with lavender too? I can't make out what floral scent it is but it really smells great, smells as soothing as it's on my eyes...
Mmmm~ Eyes eating ice-cream~~~

Again, recommended by Na, I bought the KOSE Junkisei Prime Oil Cleansing. As much as she love it, I too love it. LOLx.. Go read her review here!

One of you might find this very familiar... LOLx.. I bought this Revlon lipsticks for 2010 Onsugar BXP gift exchange. And I couldn't stop the urge of getting more peach pinks lipsticks so I bought the same pair for myself too! LOLx..~

Ohhhh~ At last we come to Sleek Hauls! Another of my favourite buys from the last 3 months of non-stop hauling!
I'd ordered the Sleek Blush in Pixie Pink and Rose Gold through Jo's Sleek spree.
When I tried to open up the case, it was so daaaaarrrrnnn hard to open till it requires me to bring a pair of scissors to ply it open. =_= (imagine I had to do that EVERYTIME i wana use it.. PFFTt..)
And so, I did some work on the lock part. Observe DA Master @ Work!!! kekekex.. (When it comes to technical part, i'm quite good too! lolx~)


FASHION HAULS & What not...

I had been urged, psycho-ed, nagged (or watever you call it) to signup a twitter account. Without iphone, I see no point in creating the account and be able to twit only when I'm back home using my PC. So, I spent $500 (call me crazy!) to get my iphone! Just because of twitter? Neh~ just kidding =p

Various Fashion hauls from GMarket, Nichii@NEX, Parco Bugis Junction... I love the white long flare shirt (on the right), bought it for $49.90 (-10%) @ Nichii!


Nothing related to Beauty.. But I love stationeries since young, esp those that I can personalise!..
I was at Popular Bookstore and there was a jap video advert repeatedly playing and replaying on a small screen. I am drawn to almost anything japanese (and korean now.kekex..) and so, I found this little treasure!~ I have a little planner in my bag which I often update due to my busy work schedules and adhoc appointments (so that I wont forget..=_=")
I would like to get some colourful pens which i can use to draw small cartoons on my planner! hohoho~ childish much? =p Japanese girls are childish anyways. kekekex~
Its called the Uni Style Fit Gel Ink Pens, each refill only for $1.75 and Holder for $2.35.

Still! X'mas gift exchange?! How overdue-ed is that? But I still got somemore X'mas gifts uncollected!! *wink wink @ Na*

Finally! I've reached the last item of my collective haul~.. This Military khaki green cap : $19 was purchased just few days ago @ City Square. I patron the shop before (Elephant @ Basement - Why is elephant @ basement? Because its too heavy so even if it goes to 10th floor, the ground breaks and it'll fall to the basement. Hahhax!~ I'm just bullxhitting =p~) when City Square just opened and I am loving their caps more, in compare to 77th street's. I think their cap sizes are a little bigger too than 77th St's. (can fit my big head heh)

And that marks the end of my 3 months collective haul... I'm now being a good girl trying not to buy too much things (so far still ok).. Unless I really NEEeeeddd it~ kekekx.. Hwaiting!!

 

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)
