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)

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. =)
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.
Right... From the title, u see I had been spending much lately again...
Here goes my new hauls and OOTDs.
Puma Hoody Jacket - Black with GOLD Trimmings! At first look, I LOVE IT! It was on sales and was the last piece in M size (although it felt like it was being tried on for several times but I don't mind!) This is what I always called it - FATE. This jacket is fated to be with me. Heheex..
Bought it at Junction 8 @ $44.50
Camwhoring abit in the fitting room.. ^_^"
Bought on the same day, the Adidas Jacket - White long (in size M but it was larger & longer than Puma's, specifically made just for the tall mi! =p)
It was originally $99 but has 30% off, so I grabbed it! Bought at $69.30. (The 3 stripes is designed along the length of the sleeves in white color!)
Initially I wanted to pick a valentine edition jacket (white with hearts all over) but it was rather short for me :( And it has not discounts!
On the same day again, I bought...
Nature Republic Powder Masks - It comes with a half filled small bottle and a packet of powder. Yet to use them! But quite excited about how It's done! :D
Aqua the ocean Facial Foam - I had used few times, I find its just a normal facial foam.. It cleanse squiky clean but it hurts my eyes alot when the foam are near them. Conclusion: I going to give to someone else... :(
At Watsons I bought...
Radox Body Wash - I had been trying so hard to find this brand! At last I saw it, just a few pieces lying on the shelf. This one tube cost about 9 bucks already.. After using it, body feels moisturized! Not like the normal body wash I used (previously Bodyshop's) which it feels dry after coming out of shower.
Bourjois 'Pretty Paris' Blusher - #16 Rose coup a foudre. ♥ the packaging! Its so cute! (cover design viewable on the reflection of mirror) The brush however is rather stiff (even after cleansing) and poky to my skin.. Bought at $20.90 less 20%!
Bourjois Blusher swatch
At Gaurdian, I bought...
This is something that I do not need but itchy hand want to spend money... sigh..
Silky Girl Lipsticks 'Moisture Gloss' - 2 for $10.90
It looks great when its on my hand in the store, but it looks weird when I swatch again at home..
And when I wear them, I can't help to just rub it off immediately. I look rather weird in these colour although in the pics it look so nice!
Or I am just not used to seeing my lips too red. =_="
Argh my mistake.. the swatch is opposite position from the lipsticks..
