WANG BRA

Alexander Wang x H&M bra, H&M wrap coat, Dynamite faux leather pants & denim top, DSW shoes

I didn’t intend on getting anything from the Alexander Wang x H&M collection…but in the end, I caved in. The sports bras were on the top of my list of “needs” from the collection because aside from being great gym wear, I could wear them over a top. (I’m still in search for the white top with the perforated pattern…anyone want to offer me theirs in an xs?) Also, nothing makes me feel more warm than being completely engulfed in this potato-sack of a coat. I want to be completely submerged in it…especially with this -18 degrees weather.

SAILOR MOON 20TH ANNIVERSARY OFFICIAL MERCHANDISE REVIEW: RIBBON IPHONE 5/5s CASE

by

Mood [Cold]
Currently Playing [Taylor Swift – I Know Places]


I couldn’t resist buying these two cell phone cases! I waited a few months to absorb in all the cuteness of these cases prior to using them…HAHA, I’m joking. Okay…I’m not! :) First of all, I support official merchandises. So even if there’s other versions of the case on sites such as eBay, I personally will not buy those for 2 reasons: 1) The quality is not as good as the real thing and 2) being an artist, I know how much time and effort are placed into every piece of artwork.
 

These two phone cases were around $25 CAD plus shipping. Thus, pretty hefty for phone cases. But if you’re a Sailor Moon enthusiast like myself, then nothing else matters. They are great quality cases with amazing packages. The rubber is not like most cases iPhone cases, it’s much more durable and less bendable. It covers my phone perfectly and protects it with every drop.
 

You can still purchase the pink case on YesAsia, most other websites have already been sold out. If you’re interested in other Sailor Moon products, I suggest visiting this site to see more items.

WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT
This lotion, I don’t even think I can call it a lotion, but rather a sorbet that is infused with all the vitamin E that you’ll ever need. Not only that, but it also has wheatgerm oil, shea butter and soya oil that helps to nourish the skin. It has a really cooling and refreshing feel once applied onto the face. I love how to absorbs oil and deliver a velvety matte finish.
 

The texture is something that I have never tried before. As you can tell from the photo above, it’s indeed like a sorbet. I like this lotion for its ability to retain moisture but I must admit, I’m not a fan of the texture because it doesn’t react well with my foundation. (I wonder if anyone else have run this problem?) I have tried many different types of foundation and different application methods, but it still leaves residue on my face every time I use this sorbet with any foundation. Thus, I cannot use this lotion in the morning and only at night for me. However, besides this point, it’s a good lotion for anyone who wants moisture without having to sacrifice that matte finish.
