A while ago, I mentioned that Stila had a new eyeshadow palette for summer – the Kitten Palette. Well, last weekend I finally remembered it and got a chance to check it out!
The first thing I noticed is that the Stila palettes have gone up in price. They are now retailing for RM190 each (6 colours) instead of the RM128 it was previously. Boo! So, even if I have good things to say about the Stila palette, I will balk at paying the terribly high price for what is a tiny little palette. Maybe I’ll try to source it from eleswhere.
The colours are lovely though. Continue Reading ►
I do yoga once a week. Not as often as I’d like mainly because I’m lazy After about a year plus I’m finding that my yoga mat is too thin. That was when I came upon eco friendly yoga mats at Lotuspad. They just celebrated their first birthday and were offering free shipping within the USA last weekend. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to write about it then.
What I like about the Lotuspad yoga mats are the lovely colours they come in. This is so unlike the boring blue mats I see all the time. On an hygiene point of view, the mats are made to resist sweat bacteria and fungal growth. Important, when you are rolling away on the mat during yoga practice! You can read about the specifications and products on Lotuspad.
Each yoga mat retails for US$49 and they even do kids sizes, which I thought was very thoughtful! The other point about Lotuspad is that their yoga mats are made of environment friendly materials. Lotuspad ships anywhere in the world which is excellent and they take Paypal which is convenient. I enquired about shipping to Malaysia for 1 mat, and was informed that it would cost approximately US$27. Considering the weight of the mat, I wasn’t too surprised at the cost. Even shipping a leather bag from the USA to me costs US$30 and a yoga mat is a healthier investment. Maybe the pretty colours will make me less lazy to practice during the week…
I had a blind date sprung on me recently and I found myself in an unenviable position of going “Uh oh… what do I wear? How do I look?” Since it was dinner on a weekend, I found myself with time to work out my look and I thought I’d share my thoughts based on this and other previous experiences. Keep reading because there’s also a Giveaway at the end of this post!
Where to go?
If its dinner that’s planned, try to arrange for a restaurant that you have been to. There is nothing more stressful than wondering what to eat at a new restaurant with someone you barely know! Try to aim also for a restaurant with slightly dimmer lighting (but not so dim you can barely see) and one that’s popular but not overcrowded so you don’t feel rushed, yet if the date isn’t up to par, you aren’t caught in an awkward situation with only 2 of you present. Dimmer lighting is also more flattering Continue Reading ►
I usually avoid the mall on a weekend because I hate having to crush with crowds. But yesterday was a little different because I had to hit the bookstore to grab some books on sale. After that, I had a bit of a loose end so I popped down to see what was happening at the beauty counters.
Chanel Fall 2008 Joues Contrast blushes
My first stop was Chanel because it was empty. I had spotted the Fall 2008 collection and wanted to check out the Rose Dust Joues Contraste blush. I had enthused about Chanel Joues Contraste blushes in a previous post and I had mentioned that I wanted to check out Rose Dust because it looks so pretty in the pictures.
Well, Rose Dust is just as lovely in person! Continue Reading ►
