A Gift from a Dear Friend

I've said it once, and I'm saying it over and over again. There's just so many generous people out there! It is amazing how I've met a lot of cool people online!!! You gals know who you are! *group hugs*

Anyways, everybody knows Oct 27th was my 1st year wedding anniversary. Me and hubby went out for a dinner with my family. When and I got into the car, Keith was holding a cake with candle (FYI: he was just holding the candle and it isn't lit) but the car smells like smoke! LOL It was too cute, he doesn't have a lighter so he was trying to lit up the mini candle with the car lighter I guess he saw me coming and was in a to make the long story short, he wasn't successful in surprising me with a candle but he definitely surprised me with his sweetness!

And I thought that's were my surprise would end. When I got home, stressed from work and really tired! I got a package !!! You may think these packages look ugly but for me, it looks like it was wrapped in a wonderful gift wrap :P

Who is this from?

I love it that she neatly wrapped it with a lovely note!

The handwriting is own by a fellow beauty blogger, Beetrice! Beetrice is a lovely person whom I met in the beauty blogging world and she is the author of Beetrice's Review. Bee and I have been constantly communicating on meeting each other one day and of course, she has her responsibility to feed me and stuff me into a FAT Turkey while I'll be her best tour guide she'll ever meet! (I guess I have to be the tour guide first before she stuff me into a big fat turkey coz I'll turn into a big fat tub of lard-y tour guide! lol)

Anyways, one day, she emailed me telling me she'll be sending me a surprise gift because I am smart, pretty, beautiful, sexy, glamourous <----- I'm sure she won't remember she said that, but I her mind hahaha! Seriously, she wanted to send me something to make me smile and be happy and yeah, that's how sweet she is! Thanks girl! I did read her note first before I opened the gift, I am really touched on how much time she took even to write the letter and explain to me why she gave me those stuffs!

Eye Candy!!!

Let me break it down

1. Eye Masks

Purederm Refining Korean Herb Mask, Collagen Essence Sheet Masks in Super H2O and Green Grape, Watsons Rose Water and Watson's Lavender Facial Masks

Perfect timing, I may not be blogging about facial masks but once in my life, I was addicted to face masks and I've been using face masks religiously for more than a year! I stopped ...because...I honestly forgot why I stopped lol Anyways! So this is a perfect timing for me to get addicted to masks again!

2. Collagen Crystal Eye Mask

This is the cutest thing I've ever seen and I don't want to use this becuase, it's too cute! LOL

3. Meow Cosmetic Prim & Preen: Primiere Puss Primer Combo Meow Cosmetic Firefly Blush : Flash Meow Cosmetic Ideal Eyes: Lazy Purrl Meow Cosmetic Crystalline Cat: Morganite

Can't wait to try them, never tried MMU from this company

4. Natio Anioxidant Face Moisturizer

Natio Ultra-Shine Fruit Gloss in Cherry

Natio Moisturizing Vitamin E Lip Balm

Natio is an Australian made product and I can't wait to use this. Will be my first time ever!

5. NYX Round Lip Gloss in Deep Red

NYX Round Lipstick in Herades

Who doesn't love NYX??? My first time to try on the NYX Lip Gloss and the Herades color is something different! I don't have this shade yet!

6. Maybelline Color Wear Trio Eye Shadow in Fresh Spring

She things I'm one of the brightest people she knew! Aawww, definitely a color that brightens anyone's day!

7. Magicboo One-minute treatment sachets

Hair products!!! Hair products are my next favorite thing after make-up!!!! I can't wait to use this as my hair SERIOUSLY needs conditioning!

8. Badger Sleep Balm

I do share the joy and gave this to my mom-in-law who has a hard time sleeping!!! She's super happy to give this a try and I would report back on how it helps her sleep at night :)

And the next is the best

She included post it flag notes and she said it reminded her of ME! Because of the dots!



I felt touched that she understood and knew my personality so well! I am dead on colored pens, stationaries, highlighters, POST ITs addict!!! So this is perfect non make-up/skin care related stuff!

Bee, thanks so much for the lovely gift!!!!
