Candy Swap!

28 Oct IMG_0481

Hi! I’m back with a candy swap which is my very first. This swap is extra special because the goodies I got are from Sweden and most lollies are unfamiliar to me.

Thanks, Zeruda for doing a swap with me. Hope you also liked the goodies I got you.ย Hope we can have another swap next time๐Ÿ™‚

Gmarket Haul 2014

5 May

Gmarket is one of my fave online shopping sites and yes, I often buy from them. If I am not mistaken, this haul is my 3rd for this year (and it is only May hehe).

This is the first time I try to buy only from one shop so it is relatively the smallest (in terms of box size) haul I made. Tony Moly had a shop sale then so I decided to grab that chance to score some savings. I got mostly makeup (as if I am in dire need of them haha), lip and eye makeup remover and a peeling gel.

Here is my loot:

Happy Day!

28 Jan

Today is a happy day ๐Ÿ˜Š

I got a little surprise in the afternoon and I had dinner with my former work colleague whom I haven’t seen in months.

It has also been my first time to go to the mall near my office (since the political rally took place and closed off the streets). I have been looking for Maybelline products like the new (?) matte lipsticks, lip glossed and primer but most of them are not available. I finally found the bouncy blush (I know we’re so behind here) but it was almost US$ 15, so I did not get it yet.

I got other things though, which I really need.

I got Skinlite Make-up Cleansing Tissues in Cucumber, Maybelline Color Show in Buried Treasure, essence lip liners in In the Nude and Cute Pink and Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Elusive. I’m so excited with the Matte Balm as it is moisturising and pigmented. I really wanted the red colour (I didn’t get the name) but the colour pay-off was not that good. *** Please pardon the picture quality as the lighting is not good here.***

I’m so excited to try everything now ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, how was your day, too? Hope you had a good one. Cheers!๐Ÿ˜Š

(Belated) Happy New Year!

27 Jan

Hi everyone! I’m back ๐Ÿ˜Š I know I have been MIA for the longest time. Last year have been eventful which I can sum up in two events: I wasn’t well on the first six months and when I got well I moved to a new job. And six months onward… my new endeavour keeps me busy all the time.

Anyway, I really miss blogging and sharing my simple joys here. Hope you’re still support me like before.

Sharing this photo to remind us how to live well each day.
Thanks again and cheers ๐Ÿ˜Š!

2013 Gmarket Haul #2

20 May

Image

I recently did another haul at Gmarketย because it’s my birthday month. Yes, I need to justify why I am so I shop online plus I didn’t want to lose my membership status (with inactivity at Gmarket for 3 months, you lose your current membership status and become a NEW member again). So with this recent haul, I will finally be upgraded to VIP status next month, woohoo!

Anyway, on to my haul… let’s first start with my order dates and info…

Date Ordered and Paid: May 10

Date Shipped: May 15

Date Delivered and Received: May 16

It’s really amazing that everything was so quick, considering that right after I paid my order, Gmarket e-mailed and advised that there will be a delay of shipment (I assumed that there is an upcoming public holiday) which was perfectly fine with me. I also would like to applaud both Korean and Thailand post offices for a really efficient and prompt delivery. I got my order in less than a week. Bravo! Two thumbs up for them.

Before we check the contents of the box, guess who “sent” my package this time?๐Ÿ˜‰

Image

The postal box was so big (no. 5) because of the boxes but here are the packages inside.

Image

Let’s get started with the contents of the packages:

IT’S SKIN

Image

I got It’s Skin Power 10 Formula WH Effector with Arbutin Essence, Color Play Black Jewel Lip Rouse and Lady-holic Lipstickย with three samples of Power 10 Formula YE Effector with Yeast Extract.ย All the products are bubble-wrapped and delivered quickly considering that I bought them during a sale.

HOLIKA HOLIKA

ImageI also ordered at a time when there was a promotion going on but this was the first package to be delivered (yeah, I check the status of my order all the time). The products I got from Holika Holika are Face to Change Color Control Cream (CC Cream), Daily Garden Lip & Eye Remover Acerola and Lip & Eye Multi-Base. The sample I received was a Face 2 Change Moist Cushion BB in no.21 which I will give away to my sister because it’s too light for my skin tone. I have tried using the CC Cream but I haven’t used it enough to write a proper review about it.

MIZON

Image

I got the Snail Recovery Gel Creamย from Mizon. This is by far the only snail cream brand which I have repurchased again. With it’s 1+1+1 and discount price, it’s definitely a good buy PLUS it works wonders for my skin!

IMYSS

Image

I got the Imyss Beautytoc Lucky Gold Egg Vibration Foundation and Puff because I have long been curious with these vibrating foundation puffs. I have to admit though that the reason why got this particular brand was because it was inexpensively priced at around KRW12,000. I also bought a refill and I was disappointed how the refill wasn’t properly wrapped. It was just placed inside the plastic with the free mask sheet and lollies so it’s unhygienic but I can wash it anyway, so no big harm done. Aside from the free mask sheet and lollies, I also got a plastic cover featuring Kim Hyun Joong (when he was still endorsing Tony Moly).

YUMMY GOODIES

Image

I have started ordering food from Gmarket because most of these goodies can’t be bought here in Bangkok or priced at an exorbitant amount. I got Market-O Real Brownies (love it!), Market-O Classic Mini Chocolates, an assortment of potato and corn chips (I was expecting Sunchips because that’s what I thought I ordered but it’s alright), and Margarette (these are yummy peanut cookies). If for these delectable goodies alone, I can’t wait to make another order at Gmarket, lol.

Image

I love everything that I’ve got! Thank you Gmarket for an efficient service!

I was proud of myself, too for controlling my urge to buy more but as I check Gmarket all the time, I am eyeing more things each day. Shopping at Gmarket is indeed addicting but satisfying, too (except for my wallet hehe).

Have you tried shopping at Gmarket? What are your recent hauls? Care to share? Also, please let me know if you want me to review of any of the products I purchased.๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers, everyone!๐Ÿ™‚
