it's a short, short, four days away from CNY and boy oh boy am i all excited to dress up and devour my CNY goodies already! all those thoughts of bak kua are giving me mega cravings. and pineapple tarts! and cookies! and steamboat!!!
CNY has got to be my favorite festivity to indulge in, especially when i'm with my family and loved ones :D i used to be really excited about red packets last time, but i guess now that i'm all grown up, the appeal of red packets isn't such a draw for me anymore! nevertheless, CNY is another period of giving and receiving, and Luxola.com has very kindly sponsored me with two miniature goodie bags to give away!
actually, one of them is for me to keep, but i decided i'd just give both away, to thank all you awesome readers for being so awesome and for having seen this blog through yet another year! ♥
if you haven't heard of Luxola.com, you can find out more about them on this page here, but in short, Luxola.com is an online luxury cosmetic and skincare website that imports and sells a selection of the most exciting international cosmetic and skin care brands to Singapore and deliver them for FREE on the next business day! Luxola.com is also the first store in Singapore to be backed 100% by every brand that they are associated with.
so what you're receiving in this goodie bag is a selection of cute miniature and also full sized products, and some of them are really really good stuff!!!
Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Ruby Red Slippers, this miniature bottle of nail polish in a glittery red bling shade is def one of my favorite items in the goodie bag! puuuurfect for CNY or what!
Sleek Maximum Impact Eyeshadow, full sized product in a very wearable shade of Khaki (which looks like a shimmery smoke grey to me)
and two samples of Deborah Lippmann's products, a hand and cuticle cream as well as nail laquer remover finger mitts! the mitts sound super cute!
to get your hands on this little goodie bag, you just need to leave a comment on this entry, remember to enter an email address that's contactable, along with your name! :) simple as that. can go ahead and shower me with compliments or wish me happy CNY or whatever if you want. hahaha. just kidding la. just your name and address, most important!!! :)
give-away ends this Sunday, 22nd January, 12 midnight! :) to welcome the new year hehehe.
last picture of myself before i turned redhead. which i already did, on Monday together with Eils baybeh. i'm kind of neutral about it though, i think the red is a bit too red now if you get what i mean and it's making my complexion look sallow D: the red will fade though, so once it fades a little i think i will love it! :D red for CNY! huat ah!!!! also cut my hair into bangs again cos i just wanna look younger for CNY. you know, all those nosey relatives are gonna start asking you how old you are and when you're getting married so maybe i can smoke them if i look younger with my bangs and braces... hahahah.
i'll show off my red hair soon enough! :D CNY is the perfect excuse for camwhoring. awesome or what? i really can't wait for CNY :D oh no! diet plans all down the drain. i've already started on the chiku chips and pineapple tarts. just waiting for bak kua only. woohoo! :D life is good.
i've been on a book reading craze as of late, and just finished two of Murakumi's books, The Wind-up Bird Chronicle and Dance, Dance, Dance. i'm not sure what to think of them, except that they are really intriguing and different. lots of alternate universes and realities and dreamscapes and psychic activity going on. it's kind of disturbing cos whenever i finish a book, it makes me feel like i'm waking up from some other universe and having to adjust to reality again.
ok, enough of blabbering nonsense. decided not to do a last minute collection before CNY cos i don't think we can handle it! and i'm secretly feeling relieved cos the backlog of emails from the last few collections is already getting rather hard to handle, can't imagine if we did a last minute launch on Thursday night (that i was initially thinking of doing), would be terrible with Singpost being so delayed and also the rush for self-collections and all that. we'll probably take the time instead to ensure that all existing transactions are dealt with smoothly so that customers will all be happy before CNY! and then it's time for a super office spring cleaning and stock taking and accounts on a new slate and all that before we start afresh for the new year. sooo many things to do, sooo little time. all the time.
