The story of two rings

Just a quick small entry on some accessories I have gotten of late, two rings to be exact.

The first one is the ring that I won from Roseanne's giveaway. It's a vintage daisy ring from Moiey's Whimsical Charms blogshop. It's pretty cute huh? I love the detailing! The colour of the flower is "mint" (you know like minty green? hurhur) and it's also available in lilac, pale peach, red rose, purple pink and cream. Click here to see them!


This second ring I have is from my recent trip to Taiwan. We had gone up to Jiufen, a former gold mining town up on the hills. My hubs' aunty found this small shop selling all kinds of hand-made stuff and bought a ring for herself. Later on, she showed me her ring and told me that if I wanted one, she'd buy one for me as a gift. I was like yay OK! So we went back to the shop, and there were so many other designs, and this is the one I chose. The flowers are made from swarovski crystals and they shine really nicely in the light. And see the colour? Purple! My fav! And while I was there trying on bracelets and such, I broke one and all the beads fell to the floor. Oops! Luckily we didn't have to pay for it, but I did help pick them up.


Views from up there. Very quaint. Cool and breezy. We sat at a tea house, ordered some tea and enjoyed the view.

And this is one of the things I enjoyed most up there. It was my first time eating this and I don't really know what it's called. It's ice-cream wrapped in some kind of popiah skin with shaved peanut and parsley (or is it coriander? Always get confused between those two..lol). SUPER YUMMY! I ate it twice within a couple of hours.

cocomotion's giveaway prizes

I collected the prizes from Kas's breast cancer awareness giveaway on the same day as my RBLs. It was so nice to receive so many goodies at the same time, even more so cos it was the day after my birthday.

There were 4 sets of prizes for this giveaway and I had won The Body Shop Love Etc body lotion + stage nail polish in Vivacious set. Couldn't have asked for more! Kas sneaked in some samples for me: EA Ceramide Plump Perfect firming facial mask, EA Prevage anti-aging treatment and night cream, Kiehl's Cryste Marine firming and rejuvenating treatment cream, Guerlain Success Future Day Care Wrinkle Minimizer.

Kas!!!! If I didn't know any better, I'd think you were trying to send me a message!..Just look at all the keywords here: firming, anti-aging, rejuvenating..I know I just turned a year older..but but..Ok fine, you're right. I am getting old. 'Nuff said.

And thank you for unknowingly completing my TBS Love Etc set. I have the shower gel and EDP at home and didn't buy the body lotion previously cos I knew I'd take forever to finish.

And I am liking this colour! Really fun and girly, and I think it lives up to its name: Vivacious.

THANK YOU for putting this all together KAS. <3

Bunnyhearts' Giveaway: My Christmas Wishlist

To be truthful, I've never ever made a Christmas wishlist before. But, I've made a list this year especially for Charlene's giveaway. (haha yeah cos her prizes are too good to pass and I want a chance to win *wink wink*)

1. A new camera! Was aiming to get the Canon S90. But the S95 came out faster than I could save money, so my next target is the S95. I think my current camera is about 4-5 years old. The battery life is seriously deteriorating and sometimes the camera hangs. LOL. Time for an upgrade!

2. UD NAKED palette. I still haven't bought it. Kinda waiting to get it on sale or something (during UD F&F sale maybe? Hopefully it'll be in stock then) Wanna save some money in a way cos too guilty of buying too much stuff recently.

3. erm..that's about it. Nothing else is really important I guess, apart from health and happiness. And more friendships too. I won't die from not having the naked palette. Haha!

4. OK who am I kidding? I want more polishes, perfumes, makeup, shoes and bags. And a new wardrobe too. Throw in a bigger house and a car. Ooh I will need a chauffeur too cos I don't have a license.

5. Seriously though, I could stop at #3. :)

I personally love the design of the palette and all the colours as well, very earthy and neutral.
