Two Pairs of Stud Earrings from

My first shopping experience had been great.  The online store’s website was very user friendly and creating an account was easy.

Prices are okay.  Absolutely cheaper on regular items compared to other stores plus with eleven payment options including PayPal, this jewelry e-shop is the [my] place to be!  Shipping and handling --- not free though.  But for 29 sek [4USD], I mean, why not?

To make a long story short, I purchased two pairs of stud earrings!  Did I tell you that both had lovely on-sale tags on them?  Woo-hoo!!!

1.] Hearts – Stud earrings in 9K white gold

Price: 413 sek
Got mine for 129sek

2.] Flowers – Stud earrings in 9K gold

Price: 454sek
Got mine for 148sek

Delivery had been quick.  Two days later, my items were already waiting for me in our mailbox.

One happy shopper here!  Thanks a lot!

P.S. Purchased the items sometime in April.  Quite a late post, I know.  Tsk tsk.  Well, better late than never!

Brown Algae Youth Mask by H&M

It seems like everyone’s doing it these days --- face masking at least once a week.  I’ve been wanting to add this to my skin care routine but has been too lazy to put it into action.  I look at my face at the mirror and at 35, I realize that I am not getting any younger. So face masks, here I come!

Honestly, I didn’t have any idea on where to start.  I decided not to overthink it so when I dropped by H&M, I just grabbed the first one I saw, the Brown Algae Youth Face Mask which cost 19.50 sek [around 3.50 usd] for a 12 mL sachet.  Really cheap!  It’s a white mask containing Carrageenan and Siberian ginseng which claims to hydrate the skin.

Because I was all excited, I applied a thick layer on my face while having a lovely warm bath with one of our cats, sweet lil’ Bisse, on the sideline:

As per instruction, it is recommended to leave the mask on the face for 10 to 15 minutes.  I got too relaxed and took a 30-minute bath nap.  Woops!  I washed the mask off with cold water and ta-dah … refreshed and moisturized me!  Bisse came back on time to check on me!

If you are trying face mask for the first time, this Brown Algae Youth Mask by H&M is an a-okay mask to try.  It smells good, relaxing and it’s really affordable.  I am however going to try some other brands until I find the perfect one for me.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Glossybox July: The Stars and Stripes Edition, Unboxing

After thinking and rethinking for two months, I’ve decided to become a Glossybox subscriber.  My first box --- definitely a good box to start the six-month journey!

Stars and Stripes is Glossybox’s 4th of July theme.  The box is lovely and is packed with five beauty products I’ve never tried before… add to that the fact that this is my first beauty box ever makes the unboxing even a more exciting experience for me.

As expected, the box arrived as promised --- within the first week of August.  Happy me!

Me to self : Welcome to Glossybox!

On the photo below is the happy Glossybox subscriber wearing Bellapierre Cosmetics Mineral Lipstick in CherryPOP shade.  I am not a huge fan of a very pigmented shade for my lips.  Dabbing a very thin coat solves the problem!  I’ve worn it for straight six hours and loved it.  Did not dry my lips and my oh my… it smelled so good!  It reminded me of the aroma I get from melting white chocolate with a slight touch of vanilla.  Yum!

I can hardly wait for my second box.  I have a feeling that it’s arriving anytime next week.  Well, in all honesty, it’s because I received an SMS informing me that my August box is on its way to me.  Since Glossybox’s celebrating its 3rd birthday, I am so excited to open the anniversary box.  Woot woot!

Subscribed: Glossybox

I don’t know what’s gotten into me but I’ve just fallen for the hype, the Glossybox subscription.  I usually don’t sign up for monthly subscriptions however, this one’s something I am really curious about.

Anyway, although one can simply start with the one-month plan of 139 sek*/month, I signed up and paid for the six-month plan [699 sek --- that’s 135 sek savings!].  This is my first time to try beauty subscription boxes so, why not?  Wo-ah!

If you have no idea what Glossybox is, well… 
Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription service, which delivers 5 beauty samples wrapped in a beautiful box straight to your door.”  ~~~
