Idle minds are the Devil’s workshop

Or how to empty your wallet when faced with a site outage 😛

First of all, my apologies to everyone who tried to access my site and found it no longer existed. There was a problem with the server which my host worked hard to rectify and I think its all alright now. Some comments earlier may have disappeared (and a post or two did too) so I duly apologise. That was due to a server migration and I can’t retrieve them. So, thank you for your patience and to those who dropped me emails to find out what was happening, thank you too for your concern! :)

With my site down the whole of yesterday, I was left to my devices picking up on work slack but hey, there is only so much boring work to do before I ended up surfing around. Being itchy fingered I ended up picking these up online:-

They are Givenchy Prisme Again! blush/highlighter in Crazy Pink (US$25) and Clarins blush in Rose Petal (US$15) both picked up at 50% off from where the offers are on-going for a limited time. Both are brands I’ve never tried nor ever thought of trying so I’ll be quite interested to see how they fare.

At lunch time, I was out at the OE Jewellery store and was sorely tempted by a lovely delicate pendant. To my surprise the price was within affordable range but I didn’t want to whip out my credit card just yet, because I’m still thinking about it. I also saw these rings:-

Approximations anyway. They were emeralds and diamonds set in a white gold band and I loved how they winked and sparkled at me on my finger. I love green so emeralds were a natural choice even if its a May birthstone and I’m not born in May. Was it a sign that the rings fit like a glove? 😉 I’m not really one for jewellery but these really grabbed me.

However, I found myself gasping for breath at the quoted price so I resignedly put the rings back after daydreaming a little 😉 I may go back for the pendant though since its quite affordable. It’ll make a good birthday present to me 😀

Hey, when you buy OE…just remember to ask them if you want to get a new one made at the same size (if the one u tried is the exact size) coz it’s a different price altogether if you’re not grabbing it off the “shelf”. I went there to scout for my wedding band but the whole thing kinda turned me off.

Btw, was reading your Benefit post, I went to try Posietint..omg so awesome I’m so getting a bottle!

hi, i bought the Givenchy Crazy Pink too, and yes, from too. i bought mine earlier and have received the item. I am not impressed at all with the blusher. Even tho it looks like it has got 4 colours, however, after checking the actual item, found that the colours are very much the same, after application it’s very ‘goldish’ on my face. too much sparkle too for my liking. so the item is at the bottom of my stack of cosmetics now. :(

You evil temptress, those blushes look so pretty!

If you are crazy about diamonds/jewellery, you NEED to know about the bi-annual jewelery fair. Merchants from HK, SG, India etc come show their stuff at KL Convention and prices are about half price of what you get at normal stores here! Also, the selection for gems and designs are amazing. Will email you the ad when I get it 😉 I think they normally happen around October and March.

@YS : Hi there. Pity to hear the Givenchy blush isn’t working for you. I’m not expecting much honestly, after reading some reviews, but I just got itchy fingered lol… I’ll review it once it gets here.

@Monstro : eeks! No, don’t tell me about the jewellery sale! 😛 No, tell me. I’m not that crazy about jewellery but a girl needs her diamonds and bling! And October is excellent for birthdays! haha…

I saw a similar pink-toned Givenchy blush palette at the branded fragrances & cosmetics warehouse sales I was at last month…

@rinnah : It probably was the same one :)
