New Things....

This is just a quick post because someone is too lazy to work on an actual blogpost in the computer and upload pictures from the camera....yUp ME! So pardon me if this will be short or NOT! And also pics are blurry/crap I'm using my BB to update this! Hmmm! Oh well...LOL!

This new year I won't be doing any resolution but its nice to change up and commit into something better to yourself! And so I told myself I will extra take care of my skin! Its gross when I look at the mirror and my cheeks and nose is flaking dry but at work its so freaking oily on my chin and t-zone, I mean wuts up with that?! Ahaha! So I did my research and obviously Clinique 3steps came up! I tried this b4 and it didn't work for me because I had break outs in the past so I stop using it! I switch to Pro-activ but it keeps my face so dry but pimple free though! Clinique lady in the counter suggested the Dramatically Different Moisturizer in GEL! Not the Lotion because apparently its way too rich for my skin and that maybe caused for me to break out before! Gave me a lil sample to try out and after a week I'm SOLD! My skin was softer and smoother! Flake free on our harsh winter! I noticed too that I'm not too oily on my tzone and chin anymore at work! Also at the Clinique counter she suggested me to try out the wash away Cleanser! Don get me wrong I love my Clean and Clear Makeup Dissolving Foam but when I tried the Clinique I am amazed! It takes off makeup it one easy step, leaves the skin clean, refresh and so much better :P! Price wise? It ain't cheap! But when I llok around in the drugstore for a good daily moisturizer they cost around $20CDN! The Clinique Moisturizer (gel) 125ml cost $31CDN+taxes and the Cleanser cost $23CDN+taxes! I mean its a good buy nonetheless its important the have health skin anyway! Right?! I'm hoping to keep this up not only this year ahaha!

So next...I also went to MAC but not the same day I went to Clinique but I think a week after! I want to check out the new collections but nah didn't amuse me much but I liked one Lipgloss! They are called "Kissable Lipcolour" the lip container is slimmer to their Dazzleglass/Cremesheen glass but I think u'll get the same amount on their Lipglass! I got the shade of "super"! (Better pics next time!) Its a pretty shade of natural pink but on the brown side :/ if that makes any sense duh! Then I got eyeshadow in "brule`" I wanted a highlight on my browbone but I don't want any shimmer so this one is perfect! I also did a back2mac and I got "all that glitters" (not pictured) I love the shade I just don't know y I don't have it in my MAC e/s collection because its a pretty color!

Last thing...on I got the book "toddlers gone wild" by Rebecca Eckler! If you are a mommy like me then I recommend reading this book and also her first one "wiped"! Its a fun book! I love it! One of the things I wanna do more this year is to read books! At least 12 books in a year, works out to be 1book in a month! Sounds like I could do that! Its only January and this is my 3rd book already! I'm on track!

So in summary: Healthy skin and more books to read in 2011!

Wow! I can't believe this is the first day of this year! I hope I will have a good 2011 ahead of me! I won't be having a New Years Resolution because for sure I will break them in a week or two lol!! But there is going to be a major change though in my life and if you are reading my previous post couple months ago I mentioned, me and my daughter will be moving in at my BF's house at the end of this month ughhh actually I'm getting really excited! Last Wednesday me and my love went to Best Buy looking for a brandnew TV! We want either Samsung or LG but we decided to get the LG 42" TruSlim Frame Plasma TV, so perfect and we both love it! We also started to buy some minor house decorations like a little frame that has "cafe de paris" courtesy of Winners! I love that store all their house decor and everything have reasonable prices! I put the frame beside the kitchen counter where the wine and fruit basket which I found them at a thrift store for cheap! :) They are cute and they complete the kitchen now, we also bought a nice abstract wall frame for the living room! We move around more furnitures in the house and they look so much better now....will take pics once we add more pieces into the whole house!

And also I want to show my new everyday 'caddy' I found this holder at a dollar store! It has 3 slots, looks so organized when its not haha! I put all my makeup that I reach for everyday! From right to left: Slot1: I have my 2 fave lipglosses (chanel and sephora), Loccitane eyeshadow duo, Mac concealer, Rimmel face primer. Slot2: Mac StudioFix NC40, WetnWild pallete, Sally Hansen cream blush, Estee Lauder eyeshadow duo sample. Slot3: Blush brush, crease brush, eyebrush, hair comb, udpp, lashblast mascara, eyelash curler, Posh kabuki brush!

And before I forgot here is my first look for the New Year! My New Year's Eve look! Simple nothing fancy but BF said he loves it :P!

I hope everyone had a good New Year! ciao!
