Sick... (cont'd)

Thank you for the get-well messages you girls left me! Before I pass out in bed again, let me show you what I've got lately:


Birkinbagbeauty sent me:

Elisha Coy Alway Nuddy BB Cream (so I can finally understand what all the hype around BB Cream is about!)

Jadilla J Dear Shine Base (another Korean brand)

Etude House Crystal Pack Peeling

Lotree Triple Balance Make Up Base and Liquid Foundation

Shu Uemura Luminizer, and (phew!)

Nixie blush in Confidence

A big thank you to Birkinbagbeauty!

In the lower left-hand corner of the photo is a brand called sjal (pronounced "shaal" in Swedish). Turns out the Italian PR works right upstairs from my office, and she dropped by last week to give me some samples. She included a handy little brush too!

I will tell you more about sjal next time. It's sold on eluxury.com

I will be in Geneva for work Wednesday and Thursday so I'm afraid I will have to catch up with your posts this weekend.

mascara whore said...

Hehe nah my parents are actually from China but I speak cantonese perfectly fine. I was born in Australia. I still love HK though xD

Eelie said...

*slap me silly* I've been a bad blogger friend. I'm so sorry to hear that you've been sick of late, nasties like that can really ruin ones week. Can i suggest that you should keep in mind that all should be merry soon :) That won't elleviate this stress but you'll have something to look forward to atleast :)

Can i also suggest a pound puppy too? Its a wonderful way to attain a pet and i actually adopted Beckett. He's proven to be so affectionate because of how hed been treated beforehand.

g2g now, i'll come back later. Beckett's wailing that i'm not with him :(

E xoxoxoxoxo
