Vroooommm!! Random Drive By Update!

Ever notice how I can be a bit random sometimes? haha

I got an incredibly generous package from the sweet and thoughtful Kay, it totally made my day! But I'll dedicate a post to it once I have pics ready. For now, if you're really curious, just watch the video on my YouTube or else be patient!

Here are some pics of me wearing Benefit's Creaseless Cream Shadow in Samba-dy Loves Me. Samba-dy Loves Me is a great shade! I was in a rush so for my eye makeup I only used that along with my MUFE Aqua Eyes in Pearly Brown 2L and of course curled my lashes and added mascara.

I'm also wearing CORALista! It's a pretty daytime blush, really more of a coral pink so here I paired it with a sample I got of Benefit's Jing A Ling lipstick.

Which reminds me...I returned the Boscia Willowbark Breakout Treatment since it was doing nothing for me and picked up this MUFE Full Cover Concealer in Beige 8.

I'd been using MAC Studio Fix Touch Up Stick that's been worn to a nub and also the color doesn't really match me anymore. This one was $30 so it's not cheap but I was pretty impressed with how well it covered a scar that a monster pimple left behind (see...told you the Boscia Willowbark Breakout Treatment didn't work for me). Since I only use a small dab, this tube'll last me forever! (Oh...you mean like Make Up For Ever? har har)

And a bit late but Bath & Body Works is having their semi-annual sale with a lot of great sales...I picked up some surprises for Kay and also snagged a deal for myself.

True Blue Spa Self Meditating Body Butter with rice bran oil & green tea

I've been using it and it's pretty nice, it has a consistency like whipped marshmallowy...uh...butter! It doesn't contain parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil or drying alcohol. The scent is a light and clean "Asian" smell (rice bran oil) that doesn't linger too long. The best part is regular price $15.00...in store clearance, 75% off, so it only cost me $4!! If you like B&BW products, I suggest you go in and take advantage of the semi annual sale (though the exact sales seem to change over the weeks and weekends).

This weekend I found myself in Old Town Pasadena...which I somewhat consider to be my old stomping grounds or at the least, I'm familiar with the area since I used to work both in Old Town and the Playhouse District (just down the street) and I used to go there a lot to shop (love the really nice, two story Forever 21 and H&M there), eat, play pool (yup so Asian) and hang out with friends. I was at the Sephora at the Paseo ("Pasadena's Antique Mall" or something like that) and found there was the Chalk Festival going on.

pretty artistic and skillful, don't you think?

I walked around a bit, went into LUSH in Pasadena for the first time...pretty funny considering I used to work only a block away! Like a 5 minute walk...seriously a hop, skip and jump away! I didn't buy anything though but the SA was so nice, she gave me a generous sample of Cosmetic Lad face moisturizer and Breath of Fresh Air toner sample too (sorry no pics). Cosmetic Lad smells good...but even though it's light, it's still a bit too rich for me right now so I'm going to stick with the Boscia Oil-free Daily Hydration sample that I have. (Yes, I have samples for daysssss!)

For old times' sake...I went into Famima to grab a quick meal before I left. Famima is basically a Japanese 7-11, just a bit overpriced but I used to go there so much on my breaks for snacks and it's also where I first bought Japanese magazines (though they were pricey, but now I don't think they carry J mags anymore).

onigiri, cheese danish and my fav Vitamin Water XXX (I forgot salmon onigiri > smoked salmon and cream cheese onigiri...but kombu/seaweed is my other favorite)

Old Town/Paseo is cracking on the weekends...I got a free box of chocolate fingers just for walking by, and since I went in and out of Sephora, I walked by twice! haha

They're called Fling..."Naughty...but not that naughty™" lol. Apparently they sell in retail stores in Cali but you can also buy online. They sell for $5 a box...I kind of wish I walked by a third time so I'd have the Hazelnut box too, haha, but then again my purse was already stuffed. =P

How's that for random? ;)
