What's in My Bag: Travel Edition

I don't go travelling often, but when I do, these are the makeup I bring with me.

BB cream, powder, blush, lipstick, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner and mascara;
Eyelid primer and lash curler not in photo

Just enough for my everyday makeup look! When I am only spending the night somewhere near and need not worry about luggage weight, I bring a few more items - a couple of my fave eyeshadows or an eyeshadow quad, etc. 

Re the makeup, I switch between different brands. What I bring all depends on what I'm currently using or loving. Pictured here are the ones I brought on our recent HK trip. 

I just want to share about a few of these products - the ones I've been really loving but haven't posted about on this blog yet.

Haul: Sasa and Princesses

Ay, I'm back again! So early in the morning, I actually have time for breakfast. 

Anyway, if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you'd know that I recently went to Hong Kong with my family. One of the things I was looking forward to do there in HK was, let's face it, shopping at Sasa, a huge health and beauty retail chain in Asia. Before I left, I asked you guys for brand/product recommendations, and thanks to my girls Jaws and Kath on Facebook, and also a bit of internet research, I had come up with a to-buy list.

I only got a few stuff, but I was so happy I got everything in my list, which wasn't really that long in the first place.

Giveaway: Best Beautiful with Olay -CLOSED-

Hello guys! I'm up early today (a first in a long time haha). Anyway, what better way to start the week than with some good news, right? 

Belle de Jour (BDJ) is kind enough to give away Olay best beautiful kits to 20 readers of this blog, yey! 

Just comment on this post with your full name and email address, and maybe throw in a tip or two on how you keep your skin healthy and beautiful despite... life (lol). Oh, you know what I mean! 

I've been really busy these past few months with work, I couldn't even keep up with my skin care routine. To help myself out, I decided to leave a mini cleansing kit in the office, so I could at least remove my makeup and cleanse my face before going home after a looong work day. Once home, I'd just quickly wash my face again, apply toner and moisturizer. Oh! And I've been using facial masks more often, too. I used to just do that once in a while when I'm feeling like pampering myself, but I'm trying to do it more frequently and regularly. (You guys have to see these animal masks I'm obsessed with right now!)
