[Review] — Saje Konjac Kare Yam Sponge

I have amazing girlfriends! A few weeks ago my girlfriend was visiting and brought me this. She loves it and would love that I can try it too.

It’s my first Saje product – I’ve heard of this shop before and thought they only sold fragrant oils for your home. When my girlfriend opened the package and showed me it. It wasn’t anything special – it looked like a typical sponge. I liked how it came with a container. She told me to wet the sponge and clean my face with it. I’m like cool – I usually only clean my face with my hand. I did as I was told.

It was a little weird at first because I was always reminded that any cleansing product should have foams in it. This sponge didn’t. So I read the instruction again to see if I should put some cleansing product in it. It says not to. So I only cleansed my face with the sponge. It felt like a normal sponge with nothing on it.

My face did feel smoother though. The next day my face was glowing and I was shocked. How can this sponge that looks like it has no foam or anything on it – make me glow? Interesting right? I love it ever since my first use.

It says it has 100 uses on it and the price is $9.98 plus tax. Very inexpensive. I use it every night during my bath time. A very very unique product and I’ll for sure be stocking this up. I’ve heard that these sponges sell out fast too! This will be one of my must have skincare products in my routine for sure! Stay tune more daily hauls & reviews!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Haul] — Sephora & Asian Beauty Skin Care Haul

Been awhile since I blog about beauty! I re-purchased a few makeup products from Sephora when mines ran out. I can’t live without the Kat Von D liquid eyeliner & concealer! It is definitely a must have! I returned the Tarte SPF30 sunscreen – since my girlfriend introduced me to a Japanese one.

Onto my second part of the haul which is the photo on the right. My girlfriend introduced me to all of those skin care & CC Cream. Biore UV sunscreen is a MUST have! I did a first impression review on it already – go back a few pages of my blog to check that one out! Other than that – I had the pleasure to try 3 different products. I feel so blessed to have girlfriends introducing me to new beauty products!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Haul] — Second Large Peaceful Design Planner Sticker Haul

A super belated haul from a few months ago – I totally forgot about these stickers I purchased long ago. This is the third and largest haul I’ve purchased from them. Since I made my first two orders from this shop – I know exactly the sizes they have. I’m a bit OCD – so I want my icon stickers in the same measurements.

I ordered a few different types of stickers instead of just icon stickers this time. I purchased vacation countdown, weekend banners, and rectangle and square empty boxes.

Loved everything I ordered. Two things I love about this shop is – the shipping is inexpensive and the stickers are much more affordable than other shops. It’s about $2.50 to $3.00 per sheet. I highly recommend you this shop – it’s an etsy shop – easy to google! I will for sure be ordering from her again!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Review] — Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Eyes Time Complex Capsules – First Impression

Image: Google.com

My first impression with this Elizabeth Arden eye oil serum was amazing! I did not purchase my first few capsules – my girlfriend was telling me how much she loves it and brought over a few capsules for me to try. I am so grateful for girlfriends because we share a lot of beauty tips, daily life shenanigans, and etc with each other. If it wasn’t for her bringing over a few capsules – I don’t think I will ever buy an entire container of it. I always walk by it when I am at Costco but never thought of trying it out. There are way too many skin care products to try.

Here’s my first impression – I never used capsule products before and this was my first. Quite an unique concept how they put the products in capsules. It is mess free and has the right quantity of products in each capsule.

At first I was a little hesitant because its oil base. I don’t like anything oil in my skin – I don’t like the sticky oily feeling. But to my surprised – it didn’t feel oily at all. It felt very light. One capsule was enough to cover my whole face. It felt great and better than I expected.

The next morning I felt that my face was glowing. What an amazing product! Usually you need to try the products for a few weeks to know the results. This product had an instant result. Love it! I was sold!

They say to apply it twice a day but I only apply it during my night time skin care routine. That was good enough for me. I love how it helps with moisturizing and wrinkles around the eyes. I do have a few wrinkles around my eyes at this age due to rubbing my eyes every morning. It’s such a bad habit that I need to get rid of for sure!

I purchased these capsules at Costco at $38.99 plus tax from what I remembered. It comes in two containers and a total of 120 capsules. The containers itself is very classy.

If I use 1 capsule a day – it last me a good 4 months. If I feel like I need two capsules a day – it’ll last me two good months. This product is quite affordable if you buy them at Costco. I’ve seen this product sold elsewhere for double the price! I definitely will recommend this product to all of you! Amazing & affordable – what more can you ask for right? I also gave another girlfriend of mine – a few capsules to try and she loves it too!

Going into my late 20s – I’ve been taking better of my skin – so it won’t be as difficult to take care of later on. What are your thoughts of this product? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more hauls & reviews!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Review] — Fitbit Alta HR review

I have been using my Fitbit for a few months now and it’s time to give a thorough review with this new device.

Before purchasing this device – I did ask a lot of people of what they think of this device and if it’s worth the money. The results were half half – so it made it even harder to know if I should get it or not.

I gave it a month to think – if I should get it. Would I use it every day? What would I benefit from it? There’s a wide range of different types of Fitbit but the one I wanted was the latest one which looks more chic. It is $229.99+ tax which makes it around $260. The issue isn’t about money. The issue is would I only use it for a few weeks and not even bother using it anymore? I had to make sure that I will be using it for a long period of time first.

After much debate with myself – I pull the plug and ordered it online at Bestbuy.ca. Since the color I wanted was limited edition – I waited almost 3 weeks for it to arrive. If you get other colors – they are cheaper plus the shipping is way faster. But being the picky-self I am. If I am going to wear it every day – I wanted the color I like.

After the first few hours of wearing my Fitbit – I fell in love with it. It shows everything. Heart beat, sleeping stats, steps I took, goals, weight, alarm, and etc. One thing I love love, and love about this device is – you can have challenges with your friends. It makes exercising so much more fun.

I think without your friends having Fitbit – it would be a bit boring and less motivating. Basically your friends can keep you accountable because when you do challenges with them – they see your activities and when you are moving as well. So every week or weekend – I have a few challenges with a few different groups of people. It’s so much fun with the challenges because you get to see how many steps they took and you try to beat them. I feel like if you have no friends with Fitbit- its less motivating.

Is it irritating to wear the Fitbit every day? Not at all. I get used to it – that sometimes I forget that I’m wearing it. It’s very light and chic. After using my Fitbit for a few days – without any convincing – 2 of my girlfriends got one for themselves too. They love it and we have challenges daily. After talking about my stats and having friends that have it – my hubby wanted one too. Lol with no convincing needed. It interested him because of the challenges we were having plus he was interested in seeing how his sleeping routine was like.

It does need a quick charging every 4-5 days. Its shower water resistance but I don’t wear it when I’m taking a bath.

I have no regrets with this new toy at all! Worth every penny and I am happy that it gets me moving all the time! There is not one bad thing I can say about it! Do you have one yourself? Do you love it or hate it? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more hauls & reviews!

Have a GORGEOUS day!!!

[Haul] — La Vie en Rose Swimwear

Don’t they just have the most amazing packaging? It’s my first time ordering La Vie en Rose swimwear online and I love the cute packaging! Usually when I order things online – they only throw it in a bag and that’s it.

This haul is a little overdue – I purchased these swimwear tankini tops about two months ago before my trip to Punta Cana.

I always love their swimwear because it’s so comfortable and the quality is just very lasting! Love all the tops I ordered – I already had the bottoms in the same colors – so didn’t bother purchasing it. My most fave is the floral blue one.

I have a huge collection of bikinis already but every trip – I seem to order a few new pieces. La Vie en Rose is on the pricier side – but you do get the quality of it. The shipping was free and fast. No regrets purchasing! Stay tune for more reviews & hauls.

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Haul] — Largest Dollarama Haul

Sharing to you all – one of my largest Dollarama haul. I didn’t intend to get much – just the things I needed. This always happens – I can never walk out of Dollarama with things that don’t belong on my shopping list.

I got a two summer sand toys for our trip to the beach. A lot of home and party things for upcoming events. Found these cute treat bags in the wedding section which I’m not sure what to fill them up with. It just looks pretty – so I had to get it.

These baby squeeze bags was recommended in one of the Mommy groups – decided to give it a try. I will probably be putting blended juice in there. They are so cute arent they? Just hope they don’t leak.

That’s really it for this haul. I had to visit two Dollaramas because they didn’t have party favor bags for the first one I visited. Stay tune for the next haul!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Beauty] — First Impression of Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 Sunscreen

My first impression of the Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 Sunscreen was AMAZING! Yes – I am base-ing this review after trying it for the first time.

Number one thing that bothers me about applying sunscreen to my face is the stickiness and tackiness of it. That’s why I avoid sunscreen on my face most of the time. With this one – it feels like nothing was on my face after applying it! I could not believe it – it has a high SPF too!

Now I won’t be avoiding any sunscreen on my face anymore. I’ll definitely be stocking up a few bottles of these! How come I wasn’t introduced to this amazing sunscreen sooner? I highly recommend you all to try it out. It’s AMAZING! It can be easily purchase on Amazon!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Food] — Costco Chicken Pho Bowls Review

Here goes my review of these delicious Chicken Pho bowls! Since it was $2.00 off at Costco – I decided to give it a go. It average to about $2.00 per bowl and it came with 4 bowls. I thought it would be a much bigger bowl but to my surprise – its like a snack size. Which – you probably would need about 2 to 3 bowls for a meal.

My first thought was – how good can a frozen bowl of pho be? I was so wrong about this statement! It is actually really tasty!!! The soup tasted so good that I couldn’t resist on not drinking it all. Although a lot of MSG but I can’t help it. The amount of noodle and chicken was just perfect. I wish they could come out with bigger bowls – then it’ll be perfect for meals. Otherwise – this is good for a quick snack. You can just pop this in the microwave for a few minutes – than it’s ready to eat. Definitely convenient. I would be purchasing this for a quick snack. Definitely recommend you all for trying it. Have you tried it? What are your thoughts? Comment below to share!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Haul] — Costco Grocery & Kids Haul

A little small Costco run just a few days ago.

Honestly – the colors sold me on this bag of popcorn! I could not resist the colors of it! To my surprise – it tasted amazing! Reminds me of Kernels popcorn. I love that it’s salty and sweet! Will definitely be picking this up again for parties and get togethers. It’s $7.99 for a huge bag!

Since Munchkin1s boot has worn out – I decided to pick up a new pair at Costco this time. Crocs is always popular with their rain boots – so it’s a no brainer. I love how affordable it was too – $25.

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Organization] — Kitchen Snack Cabinet Bins

g0283

Here’s my little haul from Kitchen Stuff Plus. Since these Ashley storage basket was on sale for $7.50 each – I decide to re-organize my son’s snacks. The little aqua blue jar is for my son’s hot lunches for school.

g0284

My son doesn’t snack on much variety of snacks – he has always enjoyed gold fishes, cheerios, and bear paws. Occasionally I’ll give him a bag of chips but only once a blue moon.

g0285

All organized! I wish my cabinet was a little wider – so I can add 2 extra storage baskets. But overall – very satisfied with these baskets – very sturdy and you can stack them up to however many you want. Do you have them? Love them or hate them? Comment below & share! Stay tune for more organizational ideas & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

Have a GREAT day!!!

[Home] — Christmas 2016 Decorations

It’s the most wonderful of the year! Christmas is the best holiday to decorate for because everything’s so sparkly and cute! Plus I can leave them up for 2 whole months!

Our new set of Christmas stockings from MerryStockings.Com

It’s the most wonderful of the year! Christmas is the best holiday to decorate for because everything’s so sparkly and cute! Plus I can leave them up for 2 whole months!

Got this new glittery banner at Dollarama

I love decorating! Most importantly my son loves looking at all these festive decorations too. It lights up his face when he sees it. I love watching him learn all the Christmas-ty stuff!

Favor boxes filled with candies, 2 new nutcrackers, and a silver Christmas tree from dollarama

I didn’t get a lot of new stuff this year. Every year I get a few pieces of new decors to add into my collection and that’s it. My theme this year is red, green, and silver. I decided to take a break from my Rilakkuma bears and pink ornaments. Just wanted to change it up.

Here’s how our Christmas tree looks like this year – it has silver cross’s on it too but you can’t really see it on the picture. I have box on each of my doors – that’s about 6 bows total. I had to get 4 extra this year because of course everything’s got to match in my world right? 😉

Yes – I did decorate my switches by putting these glittery shapes on each set of switches. There’s snowman and Christmas trees as well. I love decorating! I think next year I can get my 5 year old to help with the tree decorating. He’ll be old enough but that’s it he wants to help though. Haha.

I take photos of my yearly decoration because I’ll know what I have and what I’ll be using for the year. When do you usually decorate for Christmas? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Here’s a little Dollarama haul for my Christmasty stuff. I love checking out what Dollarama has every year because they come out with new stuff every year. What I don’t like every year is their prices raise! It’s up to $4.00 now!

Look at all these cool stuff I picked out. I love picking up a few new things each year to add to my collectioin. Soon I’ll need a bigger storage just for my Christmas decors!

Their stuff is just too cute! Can’t wait to use all the food stamps! I can be lazy at making my own food stamps this year! Hehehe. What are your Christmas hauls? Comment below to share!

[Kids] — Christmas Gingerbread House 2016

We decided to do our annual gingerbread house at home this year since I couldn’t find a class at Loblaws for it.

We bought a kit at No Frills for $10 bucks. The pre-built ones are more expensive but since we can never keep the house up – I decided it’s best to get the pre-built ones. Just easier for us.

We had fun decorating – Munchkin#1 helped with decorating the roof while we did the rest. Munchkin#2 helped by just watching and not crying lol.

Look at how concentrated he was! I have to say that this year he is more excited and enthusiastic in all these Christmas activities!

I think we’ll just buy the kit every year – so we can spend family quality time at home. Maybe next year Munchkin#2 can help too! What kind of festive activities did you do with your kids? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more daily updates and reviews – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!
