Dr. G Bling Bling Cream

Today I've bought the new BlingBling Cream from Dr.G "Beyond Young" Line. This is a SPF35/PA++  formula which helps with keeping the skin younger and prevent the skin from being damaged from the sun. As you can tell by the name of the product "bling bling", it gives a shiny and glossy touch after application. So if you are looking for a matte finishing bb cream, this is probably not the product you want. Perhaps you can try the other bb cream from Dr.G called the Hydra Intensive Blemish Balm in SPF 30 PA++; this formula gives a matte finishing but I find it to be too moisturizing for the recent humid weather.
Although there are rumours about bb cream being a replacement for foundation and saying how it lets your skin breath, I think it is still better to apply foundation base before applying the bb cream. Just in case right? Or you can basically treat it as a tinted sunscreen. This will work too.

Jeffrey Campbell SKATES

Hello ladies. 
Do you fall in love with these 'skates' in the instant you see them?
They are amazing. Aren't they? 
They are crafted just like furnitures sitting on your home! 
Anyways, grab them at solestruck if you are interested. But I think they are only left with the large sizes now. Girls with small feet will probably have to wait for restock.

C.L Brightening Bio-technology Mask

Hello everyone.
Today I am going to introduce a local brand called C.L which manufactures its products in Hong Kong. One of its top selling face mask is the Brightening Bio-technology Mask. Right now, as I am typing away on my keyboard, I actually have it applied to my face right now. It feels soo comfortable and the scent is good.

So, what is the difference between a traditional paper mask than a bio-technology mask? A bio-technology mask attaches to the face better, and it's known to be like our second skin. Because it sticks to our skin better, the serum can then penetrate better into our skin, making the mask to be more effective during application. If you are interested, this mask is available at choi fung hong.

After thought: this is a very quality product in terms of its pricing (only 20HKD). My skin is rich and moisturized. The fine lines under my eyes are less visible. Also, I've personally tried the SKII masks which caused me a fortune, but the results are basically the same. Because my skin are not in severely horrible conditions, I do believe that this product is a very good alternative for my expensive skin care paper masks I've bought before.

Conclusion: do we need expensive skin care to make us look better? not necessarily. But it is always best to test-use a product before you actually commit into using it because you never know how your skin will react to it. If I am not getting any reactions or allergies from this product, that doesn't mean you won't be. Also, find brands with good reputations to ensure the quality of the products. So, in other words, find products that suit you the best. It takes some trial and error, but when you become familiar with your skin type, you will know what you need. Anyways, my point is, expensive does not always mean better.

Stay tuned as I will be writing more reviews on other paper masks sold at choi fung hong.
Disclaimer: I am not in affiliate with choi fung hong. I've made the purchase myself.

hello everyone.
I need your opinions here no which wig I should get.
No.1 and No.2 are very similar in style. However, No.1 is much more purple/wine than No.2.
No.2 is just a reddish brown colour.
No 3 is for sure the most natural looking (based on colour) and the waves are bigger.

Please vote on which one you think would look best on me. =D thanks!

Hello everyone. 
Long time no blog. 
I was busy with Chinese new year so I couldn't write as much.

Over the holiday, I have bought a pair of new shoes. An oxford from Fabio Rusconi. 
The style is Vitello in nero (black in english).
I love the pointed ends of this oxford because it helps elongate my legs by miles long. 
So far, this has been the best purchase I have made recently. 
It goes well with almost everything in my wardrobe. ♥

Review on Weft Tape Extension

I've got my weft tape extension today at i-forward salon in TST. It took me and my stylist 7 hours exactly to dye, to apply the extensions, and to cut. It was a dreadful experience because I hate sitting for so long. Bear in mind that I have not tried any other types of extension before, so I will not be comparing this to any other extensions method out there.

The application part was easy, but it took a long time for me because I have very thick hair. Due to the fact that my own hair is super thick, I don't think the amt of extensions I am wearing now is up to comparison to my natural amt of hair. But nevertheless, it has added a lot of length and volume to my super duper short hair from before. The outcome was good; however, the cut I got wasn't super nice~ you can clearly see where my own hair ends, and the cut didn't make my own hair and the extensions blend together. I guess that depends on the cut, and not on the extensions themselves. The weight of the hair is acceptable. I have not tried washing it myself yet but I will do that tomorrow morning. Perhaps I should update you guys on the post-shampooing conditions. I am guessing there is a lot of combing and untangling to do. Tonight I will be sleeping with the big braid because I read somewhere that braiding the extensions together during sleep time will help eliminate serious tangling. So, we will see how that is too... when tomorrow hits. mm~ soo.. now. picture time.



this one is with my fringe pinned up~
