Start the Year right...with MUJI!

Okay, I admit...I am now a MUJI addict.

Second day in a row when I purchased stuff from this store (you will always find something you want to buy!). Surfed their website last night and there were a few items I missed the first time I was there yesterday.

Number one on my list was a modular drawer set for my wardrobe! I've been needing one of these for a long time and today is the day I got one! ^___^

With Hello Kitty atop my new modular set =^_^=

Of course, let's not forget the bath goodies. 

hair bandeau and body scrubber

a couple of women's razors

bath soaps!

toothbrush and holder ^_^

travel module for my toiletries :)

Massage oil and toning water mist for the face. I plan to use the massage oil for the Tanaka facial massage.

Finally, it's time to try the culinary stuff! Matcha powder mix and a few pasta sauces.

Happy New Year, everyone!! ^___^

My MUJI Haul!

Okay, it's almost 2013 and it's best to start the new year right ^___^

I've recently discovered MUJI (after months of ignoring the store because I didn't find anything interesting to buy) because I bought some acrylic containers. I found their products to be of high quality and possessing elegance in simplicity. Call it a zen type thing.

One thing led to another and I visited their other branch. I was seduced by their Zakuro and Cherry liquid body soap...the scent was subtle but divine. I bought the "hand loofah" to go with it. The soap (despite looking runny) suds well and I love the way my skin felt after bathing. It rinses easily too. I love everything about this soap.

Today, I visited MUJI's new branch near my place and I'm glad I did!

Here are some of the items that I bought (I spent a little over $100, but I believe it was money well spent).

So far, I have tried the Cleansing Milk. This seems to have worked wonders on my skin. My pores looked instantly minimized and refreshed.

The Light Toning Water (for stressed skin) also works well. This is the second step after cleansing and I used Muji's large organic cotton pads to soak up my face with this liquid. I liked its mild scent.

Last step was the Moisture Milk. I applied it all over my face in small dots then spread it across my skin. This is something which I think should be applied only on the dry parts of my face (cheeks, chin) since my T-zone tends to get shiny. Overall, also mildly scented and easily absorbed.

My face felt refreshed after this cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine. :)

Some other stuff that I got which are worthwhile mentioning...

A facial massager...I suppose this can massage your cheeks and jowls. I think this will help improve blood circulation.

2-way brow pencil with powder and brush. Works pretty well and gives your brows a natural boost. 
Moisturizing lipstick...I have chapped lips and this glided on smooth. Love the natural colour too. 

After all the shopping I did this Christmas, I decided that my feet needs some pampering! Here's some Shea Butter Foot Cream with a lovely thick texture for my feet. :) 

Happy Holidays, everyone! Share your Muji experiences as well!

Felt like a Louis Vuitton kinda day...

It's the day after Christmas and I felt like finally getting that LV item I've been hankering for the past few days.  Christmas is a wonderful time for giving gifts to our loved ones. It's also the best time to reward ourselves!

The boutique was closed yesterday so I sped as soon as I could before the store got packed full of people. I was looking for a small wallet to fit into my bag. I usually don't go for long wallets since they take up a lot of space. I was eyeing the Marie, Helene and Origami compact wallets but since the billfolds were all a bit short, I decided to go for something else....will do a quick reveal tomorrow!

Life's little pleasures

I have this to be thankful for this morning... I love life's little indulgences!

the Day before Christmas

So...I've been wanting...nay, craving for some new Louis Vuitton ever since I dropped by their boutique last week. It's the Christmas season and I haven't bought a gift for myself yet.

I've been hankering for an Eva clutch (now in all 3 designs!) and at the same time I've been wanting a cles in DA or Mono for as long as I can remember.

Thinking about it though, I realize that the Cles might not do it for me. The opening of either the Azur or Mono might be too small to fish out coins or cash. Currently, I'm using a card holder from Fino which works pretty well for me. But again, I'm itching for a Louis so I found myself watching Youtube videos on the MC card holder last night. I tried looking for a compact wallet at the LV website that allows me to store my bills without folding them, but to no avail. Probably this would be the secret compact wallet, but it's currently out of my price range. I considered the origami compact wallet but I think the bills still need to be folded. I already have the ZCP in MC and I have to fold my bills inside. I guess I have to try on the business card holder (I want the white MC!!) just to be sure. But that's another P16k!! Argh... I keep telling myself that this is another impulse purchase and I dont need another wallet (esp. since I'm eyeing the Eva). Or maybe I am just too bored and hang out at tPF too often so I have multiple LV cravings? haha...

Moving on, it's the day before Christmas and I'm enjoying a quiet Monday morning (for once!) watching the cats play outside. I still have to bring Ginger to the vet to be neutered and that has to be done before 2012 ends. I wonder if he's willing though? I do hope he doesn't put up a fight. Right now, he's chasing something in the grass...I wonder what it is?

Yesterday was shopping day.. I went with my brother and his gf to the mall (packed with last minute shoppers) so that I could do my groceries. I had missed out on doing my groceries for the past 3 weekends because I had been buying presents for my family and friends. I am soooo glad that I started Christmas shopping early this year... beats the crowds and the long queues!!

Anyway, the rice is almost cooked so I wil have ti check it out and have breakfast. My tummy is rumbling!
