Update and thank you :)

I just want to say thank you to you all for the advice and encouragement on my recent losing fat/exercising more/eat less post :D

So far things have been up and down. I managed to eat properly for the rest of the week, except yesterday. I blame free food as my weakness :P Like when someone brings in doughnuts at work :S

And cute food on sale, like this:


Why do these bears have to be so cute? I can't resist cuteness and chocolate-yness in 1 package...:S


Oh and Pocky was on sale for $0.88 cents down from $1.19 so I had to get one pack too....LOL. I think I can safely declare I'm one of the last people who would starve myself. I love food waayyyy too much :P

In more unhealthy food pictures, this was I made for lunch last weekend (before I started this healthy resolution thing)

Fried rice to use up all the leftover rice and bbq pork in the fridge:



Some recent haulage gathered from the past month:



NYX lipliner in Pinky
Lise Watier eye shine pencil in purple (a SA in Shoppers Drug Mart had this on and it looked gorgeous! Pricey though - at CAD$16)
Free sample of Smashbox Photofinish Primer from Sephora
Free samples of MAC Pro pigments in Kelly Green and Emerald Green from Pro Store



The MAC MA this time was so generous! I got probably 1/4 tsp in the jars...





Jergens Natural Glow Express for Medium Skin tones
- supposed to increase your skintone "1 full shade" in 3 days...I'm skeptical but still wanted to try it.

Crest Whitestrips Premium Plus 10 day
- tried it last year, it does work, but not as claimed. It didn't last the 18 months as claimed even though I followed the instructions of 2 per day for 10 days. Only lasted a couple of months even though I avoided coffee and dark coloured drinks afterwards. Still - its the only thing I know that works for me. (The oft-recommended homemade method of brushing teeth with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda did nothing for me.)

Veet High Precision Facial Wax
- I don't feel like paying for someone to do my brows anymore but tweezing takes too long sometimes and doesn't get all the fine hairs. Haven't had a chance to use this yet though.

Braun Silk-Epil epilator (not pictured)
- I've only had the chance to use it a couple of times so haven't formed a verdict on it yet. However, so far it seems to work much better on coarse hairs, and seems to miss finer hairs.

I still have to post my haul from Madame Madeline and Everyday Minerals from last month.

dem bears look yummay~

u ever buy those huge bags of shrimp chips at the asian store?

i can go through a bag in a day... and they're HUGE

i actually like my Jergens Natural Glow

the tan is subtle and not bronzy at all

i always do my own face wax or i'd be at the spa every week paying a fortune :/ i always get the Sally Henson strips cuz they're not as messy but quite effective

lemme know how u like Veet's

the fried rice looks really good XD

jing said...

Girl, i'm such a wuss, I'm still shaving cos I'm not sure how much pain I have to endure with the epilator. I needed to use it when I have time, and I've been busy the entire week. I really like crest strips. My hygienist, is that what you call those who clean teeth at the dentist?, suggested this when I considered their teeth whitening options.

Lily said...

do you know if the MAC store sells pigment samples? i always see people with those and they say they got them from the store... or do they just give them out for free?

jewels said...

please post your review for the VEET facial precision facial wax. cuz my mom does the threading for me..n it hurts alot esp for my mustache >_<

i been looking for something easy and no mess, to get ride of mustache hairs.

na said...

That fried rice looks yummy! :P

I tried the natural glow from Jergens, but it was kind of a pain in the behind because it seemed to take forever to sink in, and left my hand with all this shimmery crap. Besides, I kind of like being pale, hehe.

MMMmMMmm...fried rice. How did you make it? I'm in the market for a good fried rice recipe. ;P

And OH! Photofinish primer! *steals* I like the one with SPF in it though. And good luck with the Veet. I've only used the one for body, and it didn't work so well, but I hope it works for your eyebrows.

The cookies are so cute! And that fried rice...yum! Looking forward to seeing how the bronzer works. I've always been curious about self-tanners, but never had the opportunity to try them out because the boy likes me fair-skinned (I do, too :P)

sara said...

those bears look so good! I looked back to your Everyday Minerals post and saw that you ordered the lavender concealer. Can you post a quick review of it when you post your haul?

I know this is a silly question but how do you make fried rice? I tried using one of those little packages of fried rice seasoning from the store and it came out tasting nasty.

Your fried rice looks yummy and it contains favorite!!
