flower power

agh!! i have been slacking again.. i blame it on work! but worry not, this post is jam packed with a couple of OOTD's and two very recent hauls...

Sephora Haul
i abused the 15% off coupon hahah even though they are holding back this time around because usually it's 20% off.
  • juice beauty cleansing milk *natural & organic certified*
  • peter thomas roth cucumber gel masque
  • evian facial spray to go (travel pack)
  • sephora by OPI nail color in "rumor has it..."
  • skyn iceland's redness relief kit (antioxidant calming serum + the antidote quenching daily lotion) *natural*
  • sephora pure mascara *natural*
  • laura mercer silk creme foundation in "bamboo beige"
  • caudalie vinosource anti-wrinkle nourishing cream for dry skin (for my moms!) *natural*
  • anastasia brow wiz in "medium ash"
  • korres wild rose 24-hr moisturising cream *natural* (was free b/c of the skincare challenge promotion)
i am exploding with excitement! can't wait try to everythingggg. let me know if you want a review on any of these! i have very sensitive and dry skin so all of these products were bought in hopes of changing that.

Korres Haul

  • korres body butter in jasmine
  • korres body milk in vanilla cinnamon
  • korres wild rose foundation in WRF2
  • korres guava lipstick in #13 natural pink (love the color so far!)
  • korres cherry lip gloss in #25 natural purple
  • korres cherry lip gloss in #30 beige
  • korres eyeliner pencil in #2 brown (very dark brown, perfect for a more soft natural look)
  • korres silicone free face primer
all korres products have natural ingredients as well as skin nourishing ingredients, such as vitamin E, C, etc. ahh there aren't enough face washes, mornings, and nights to try all of these in one day!! i would like to thank kate gene b/c i used her 30% off code "KATIE".. saved me lots of mula! you can still use it now. from what i remember, it expires 4/15! but check out her blog b/c every post makes me LOL. she's just hilarious. aside from that, all her reviews are to the point and very truthful.

work outfit: H&M blouse, the Limited skirt, random belt, <3 ruffles

one of my favorite outfits for work: Express top, The Limited skirt, Kenneth Cole necklace

 flower power!! next to my jammies hanging off the chair lol. can you see my desk behind me? it's so messy b/c i'm always rushing in the morning and throwing things back on my desk. oh god i don't even know where to put all the new stuff i got today. there's no room!! so although i wore it to work that day, it's something i would wear to go out on a day-to-day basis too. however, i would prefer to wear shorts or jeans with it. the shirt was bought from a boutique called "Lit" in Boston. the brand on the tag is called "Ya" lol i can't find it online so i guess just look out for it if you're shopping at your local boutique next time? very comfy!

poppin that collar - oh yea! this jacket is just that cool. this wasn't really an OOTD, but i just wanted to show an awesome buy from H&M - a light-weight cotton jacket for $20!

ok so that's it for now.. probably won't have time to do another blog post for another 3 weeks ;x going to on an 18-hr flight to Japan on Monday wahooooooo!! then off to HK for a few days. i wonder if i can use my iphone overseas w/o being charged $8238493.. ? if so, follow me on twitter cause then it's like you're travelling with me since i will definitely be taking random pics as i am enjoying myself there =) i also tweet my OOTD's almost daily!

let me know if you're interested in any reviews! will get to it once i come back. ok off to shower and use some of these goodies now! <3

edit// GIVEAWAY i just wanted to share this giveaway with everyone. do u guys already have a purse hanger?? i know i always wanted to get one cause i'm a germaphobic and i don't like putting my bags on germ-filled floors.. especially in the bathroom! i usually make my bf or friend hold it, but still there are times wen i go to the public restroom alone and i have no clue where to put it. such a dilemma. but worry no more because Erica from Fashion Meets Food is hosting a giveaway for the following product:

so pretty. it would match my bag right now... and this is how it would be used:
it's about $20 on Joey Junior's site, but they're having a Mother's Day promotion right now, so it's 25% off and fs with $30+.  if you're interested in Erica's giveaway, please enter --> here! <--
