Ahh~ Sumimasen~ Recently am very busy with work and stuffs, hence all my event posts were pushed back ^^"
Below, shows Mimi, Brand Manager of Murad (SG), us (look at my spastic smile..heh.) taken at Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Our hands holding something secret from Murad! ^^ Well, I'll later show what is in the bag, so don't turn the page! =p~
Well, before I go on with my Hauls.. I just want to tell everyone that I'd signed up 1 dancing workshop happened just earlier this month. I guess besides my primary school times which I took part in a one time stage hawaii dancing performance wearing straw skirts and holding pongpongs, this should be the 2nd time in my life learning how to dance.
I love listening pop, rock, R&B music and recently everyone's going gaga over (besides Lady Gaga)... its none other than KPOP, known as Korean Pop.
And what's the Hu and the HA about this dance workshop? It's about SNSD RUN DEVIL RUN Dance workshop!!! If you hadn't seen how they dance, play the following Vid!!
This dance step is NOT EASY OKKKKkkkk.. (for a 2nd timer like me) At least I find that SNSD "Oh!" even though appears difficult, still is easier than Run Devil Run! And of course, GEE! is the easiest. Heh.. Why can't they teach something simpler.. =_= Any hoo, Let's take a look at the studio @ my HQ... The trainer was invited to our HQ Dance studio to teach a bunch of lazy bums employees like us.. And dancing is for ANY AGE! =p (Arrows: THat's mi!)
After 2 hours of dancing, we managed to complete first half of the song.
It suppose to be a 8 weeks dance course to complete the whole song with perfect dance steps, but we are no pros so we just anyhow~ complete it within 1 workshop.
Apparently I find that the workshop "NO SWEAT!" (Plus the studio was air-conditioned)...
.....until the 3rd day, my muscles ached like nobody business!!
Phew~~ Dancing sure can kill some calories, stretch some stiff muscles and improve my blood circulation!! I soooo wanting to join Hip hop dance but my work doesn't allow me to have more personal time for my interests.
Darn, work sure SUX big time!
Here, was my OOTD during the dance workshop, but I was wearing trackpants earlier before I changed to jeans. The pants are super long that I kept stepping on the ends and tripping myself over. ^_^"
Oh ya, the dance trainer is from Danz People, see their FB here! The trainer is sooo sooo cute & hilarious! I didn't catch her name though. At first sight, I tot I saw Sara... But I didn't wear specs, so the similarity percentage might be only 1% =p~
Now, ON with DA HAULS!!~
MAC Haul: Superslick Liquid Eye Liners in Gold & Silver! Many many Thanks again to Kim for helping me purchase at DFS when she went to Changmai! I spent $66 overall.. So, I did saved a few dollars did I? o_O But i hadn't include registered mail yet.. hhahax~
Topshop Lipstick: in Desert: $19 ZEA Plumper Lip Stick in Rose Vintage: $13.90 ZEA Plumper Lip Gloss: $9.90 One swatch of Desert, I immediately want it! It reminds me of MAC freckletone lipstick which I dropped it into the toilet bowl.. u_U" However Topshop lipstick is very dry... while ZEA's very moisturising! Its a good buy!
In my previous collective haul, I bought a Ritzo Color Guard Hair Spray and the nozzle phailed on me.. TWICE! Lucky thing is that I tried on the spot when I exchanged for the 2nd Ritzo. Man, never again will I buy that brand from Ocean! And so I paid alittle more to get... L'Oreal Paris Professionnel Anti-Static IONIC Air fix techniart (Force 5): $13.50 (Phew~ what a long name..)
After reading AB's Nature Republic Ice Jelly Primer post.. I just had to try it too! Its not cheap if I were to think that the original price in Korea is only less than $10.. But to think such known brands products (like L'Oreal/Maybelline) to be sold in SG for the cost of $19.80 is rather reasonable. ^_^" Ice Jelly Primer Cherry: $19.80 SoapWort with Pomegranate Facial Wash: $10.90 Alaska Pure Ice Aqua Sun Cream SPF35: $21.90
Quite like the Ice Jelly Primer and now thinking to get the Blueberry one! Intially I only wanted the blueberry but it was out of stock! =( *hint hint na, help me get with the member card~ hahhax..* As for the Aqua Sun Cream, I keep getting residues on my face.. Till now, I have tried using different day skincare to see if I get the same results. Yap, up to now I still getting residues. =_= FYI, I still put on cream moisturiser before the Sun Cream, I will try not to put cream moisturiser next time and see how it works out. =)
Sasa Hauls~ Shiseido Eyelash Curler: $16.20 Cyber Colors Gemstone Aqua-base Pudding Foundation SPF20 PA++: $36.90
I had been lemming on this foundation for a looong time ever since it was launched! And finally I got it! Aside from this, I start lemming on its 2way cake too! The 2way has very pretty shimmers on it so nice! =D~ (no swatches though..u can only see it in my brain..)
The spatula comes with 2 different scoop design. The round side JUSTTTTT perfect for me to dig the content out of the Ice Jelly Primer! And then the flat scoop for the foundation~ One stone hit 2 birds. ^.^
Now for freebies! Na and me went to collect our dejavu Fiberwig (thickening) Mascara~ Its my first dejavu! It came with a very cute pretty pouch, a combi of coin purse with tissue holder.I like the pink furry accessory, will be using to hang on my bag or hp.. =p
Lasly, some hauls from overseas.. heh heh.. I will not get into details for these babies, as some of these are for someone special!! *wink wink* (~.^)
However, I will get into detail just for one part. Which is, how to check your product authenticity...? ( This only apply to products bought from this company: www.LMCZ.com ) As most of you know, there are zillions of fake/replica/duplicate/unauthentic (whatever you want to call it) products in China/Taiwan/HK/Korea etc etc.. But I must say the fake stuffs are more often than not, made in China. Believe or not, in China, there are also localised brands being replicated! Say for example, the infamous Chaarming Cat (Not spelt as 'Charming') products, part of LMCZ. They are rather famous in their own country that other people would want to replicate their products for their own benefits! So, the company came out with the Authentication stickers for every each of their product. You should be able to see the sticker pasted on the box or packaging, otherwise you are buying a fake. With the sticker, doesn't mean it is authentic, you need to check the number code printed in there on the LMCZ website. Following pic shows step by step tutorial on how to check your product authenticity.
Basically the same principle applys on the Windows software too, if you realised. ^_^
Just a thought, does anyone of you know how to go about doing a quick check on a perfume to see if its Genuine/Fake during your purchase? ^___^ Make a guess.
Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)
Product names written and coloured in turquoise were given by its company to me for trial.
Meeting few friends to Expo Natas Fair to take a look at the Japan trip packages/tickets/accomodations for next year... (We planned so darn early! Not a single travel agent company can quote us the price!)
Wearing all black~ Yesyes, very skinny already still wear black i know... ~_~ Its been quite sometime I start collecting black outfits again.. was previously into gothic, punk, visual kei.. and then suddenly flora, antique, hime styles, influenced heavily by Jap sub-culture. And now? Korean wave... heh heh.. I found that the $7 necklace i bought is kind of out of place.. Ah.. wat the heck.
The FOTD~ In a rush, so the eye MU is light.. (In hurry still can take so many pics?! *smacks ownself*) And the stuffs I used are....
Was paying the ticket to enter NATAS Fair when my hp message rang. The girl at counter swipped my mastercard halfway, looked up and say "Ah~ah~! Ring Ding Dong!!" I looked up at her, she looked at me, and we both smiled ^______^ hehehex.. Kpop fan there at the counter!
Walking around and I saw this BIGGGGG AD!!! *Dedicate to Ariya!* I prefered if they are Shinee and 2PM. XD~
Next, the WATSONS FAIR. Was so excited in beginning but when I enter, I got so disappointed. X...( So much things I want to buy but they don't have.. They only have like Vichy, DHC, MMajorca (limited stuffs!), ZEA... Here are the stuffs I bought by running thru Watsons Fair and Watsons outlet in Compass Point. Had been aiming to get Neutrogena Hydro Boost range for sometime but sadded that they didn't appear in Watsons Fair.. I was introed by a sales lady to Bio-essence, thinking maybe I should give it a try again since the last time I used was (some serum?) few years back. Bought the Deep Exfoliating Gel and Hydra spa energy-lotion. She made me try their Bio Multi-Effect BB Cream (8 in 1), feels good on my hand not oily but I didn't want to buy so she gave me a sample. She's so friendly~ ^_^ By just spending at Watsons, 170 monies flew off from my pocket.
+ misc, etc, food, travel... Spent ~250 monies for just a day.. Phew!
Here shows a rather new cutie cake shop in Compass Point call The Icing room. So cute that I had to bought their muffins to try out! =P~
