O.C. Tripo

We went out on a short trip on Nov. 19. Actually, it was a SPECIAL day... just did our thang and all of a sudden, right then and after, the hubby decided to go to OC just to have lunch. However, we stayed 'til dinner! Needles to say, the both of us are very SPONTANEOUS in situations like this. But I must admit, we always have FUN, which I think matters the most in the end.

We had lunch at KOJIS. You can find it at The Block in Orange. It's my favorite shabu-shabu restaurant! I just LOVE it and crave for it at times. I had the Angus Prime and so did the hubby!

And ofcourse after that, we visited the CCO located inside Saks Fifth. I've been there a couple of times before but their selection isn't the greatest. Although, they did have the MAC SCULPT AND SHAPE DUO that I've been searching for since months back! It took me by surprise when I saw they had 3 different shades! And yes, I did get myself one.. yipeeee!

After, we went to Kinokuniya Bookstore in Costa Mesa. If you love Japanese books and supplies, this is the place to go! Oh, and they are next to YOGURT LAND, another one of my favorites! Anyways, got me a Hello Kitty planner. I can't wait to use it! Did a little shopping at nearby stores.

For dinner, we went to a place my sister-in-law discovered. It's called, Guppee's House. Had Pineapple fried rice, popcorn chicken, pork cutlets, and gyoza. For desert, we ordered this thick toast.. yes, a big ass toast that looks like a cake! I think we got the Coconut-something flavor. SoooOooOoo GOOOOOD!!! Mark loves it!

Also, we ordered this Strawberry-Banana snow ice desert which they said was good for two people... 2 PEOPLE! But when they brought it to the table, I thought they made a mistake because the order looked more of FOR 6-8 PEOPLE!!!!! SHHHHEEEESSSHHH!! Everyone was just looking at us. But, but, but.. there was an even more bigger one. MY GOD, THIS WOULD BE FANTASTIC FOR SUMMER! Geez, I didn't realize my make-up had worn off. haha!

We had to come home that same night since Mark had work the following day. I was so knocked out. I needed it... definitely got good sleep. hehe!

OMG! OMG! OMG! This is going to be the bomb! I've heard the rumors since September.... and I guess it's finally confirmed that there will be a Hello Kitty Collection that MAC will be launching soon! WOOOHOOOO!!!!!!!! I love MAC and I love HELLO KITTY and when those are put together... that equals A COLLECTION MUST-HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so excited, and to think our estimation for just the Hello Kitty Colour collection came out so close! But ofcourse, there's the extra stuff... hmmmm... I said I was going to get the whole freaken collection, but I don't think I'll be needing everything, BUT WE'LL SEE. By the time it comes out, it will be almost Valentines, and that means I'll have a legit reason for the hubby to get it for me, or maybe he will just SURPRISE ME???? Hehe!

But I am kinda glad that it will come out in February 2009 (February 10, I heard) because it gives us to time to recuperate from the Holiday spendings. So it's really perfect timing!

Anyways, I've come up with the ESTIMATED GRAND TOTAL FOR EVERYTHING IN THE COLLECTION (Hello Kitty Colour + Hello Kitty Kotre + the extra stuff + tax)
= $1,128.29.00

Sleepless Nights

Good evening... It's about 11.20pm and I'm in bed having trouble sleeping so I decided to blog. Actually, I think I have insomia again. *sigh*

 I know its fall now but the days still feel like summer. Although, we had some days that felt nippy last week as well.  I suppose winter is soon to kick in. I just don't understand our weather here.

 I recently developed a few rashes near the corner of my lips. Freaken stings when I move my mouth! I'm not sure if it's the weather or the toner I've been using. I'm still trying to figure out the cause.

Anyhow, thought I'd make a list of some of the things I need to pick up at MAC the next time I go.

* Fix Plus
* Brown eyebrow pencil (forgot the name... Think it was lingering??)
* Contour brush (with white bristles)
* Sculpt and Shape - I know they don't sell this but if anyone comes across this and knows where to buy, PLS LET ME KNOW! :)
* Makeup remover
* Vanilla Pigment

I guess that's it for now. Not a big list. Just the things i feel i really really need. Well, hope everyone is doing good! Bye for now.

A Surprise from the Hubby

Gee, I was only wanting two.. but he got me three! How crazy is that?!!! I guess it's his other way of saying I LOVE YOU????! lol

Seems he's crazy about me as much as I am crazy about MAC!

Oh, boy...

Brushes from Costco

My mother-in-law and I did some shopping last Sunday despite the cold and gloomy weather. First stop was at Costco... YAYYYY!!! Yup-yup, I got the brushes, and this is actually the FIRST time I purchased a set of their Borghese Professional Brushes. I only opened it yesterday. So much for excitement, yeah?! But, wierd cuz I do have this habit of buying things I really really like, but the moment I get home, I just leave them in a corner then open them days or even weeks later. haha! I know, a very odd behaviour there.

This year's set comes in white handles and a rhimestone on each of them. For me, I don't like the kabuki brush with the attached bottle of white shimmer powder. However, the kabuki may be removed though under it will be a sifter, which is where the powder goes through. As long as it's detachable, then it'll work fo rme.

Well, upon opening the set of brushes, the first I touched was the kabuki brush with shimmer powder and ofcourse the rest followed. Whoa, whoa, whoa! The bristles are amazingly soft and I mean AMAZINGLY SOFT! Well, for the price you are paying... YES, VERY SOFT! I wish they were a bit more dense, but other than that, I CAN'T COMPLAIN for 10 brushes and a pouch that costs $21.99. Sheesh... that's the cost of ONE small MAC brush. Though I do collect MAC brushes just because I am somewhat a MAC addict.

I don't know if the bristles of the Costco brushes are natural or synthetic... but the bristles on the kabuki sure does seem natural. I can't stop running my fingers throughit because of its softness. Hopefully they get softer after I clean them.

My final conclusion: It is definitely worth buying SO GO GET YOURSELF A SET before they run out!

Cookies Galore

The hubby baked cookies this evening. It was crunchy and chewy in every bite. Just how I like it! Great snack for tomorrow, too!

Another Manic Monday!

I was out today doing errands and after the important things, I stopped by at the mall and tried to continue doing my early Christmas shopping. I discovered most of my coupons expired yesterday!!! Had I known about the cut off dates, I would have gone yesterday, even if it meant last minute! I even saw good gift ideas that I could have bought today. *sigh* On my way home, my car was hit. An old woman backed up hitting my front. She was trying to make way for a fire engine and ambulance... But she was only 2 feet away from my car and was far from blocking the intersection so that definitely was not an excuse! She admitted she was at fault. Luckily, there is no damage on the outside. However, I'm not sure about the inside so with that being said, I got her info just in case. I kinda felt sad and just wanted to disregarded the incident but the hubby, who by the way was with me insisted I get all her info. She was cooperative at first, but started raising her voice at me in the end because she got inpatient when I was asking her for her insurance and license info. I got upset and lost my respect for her at an instant. I won't go into details as I know it'll make me sound rude on my part, but no one can just put you down like that... And I mean NO ONE especially if it's not your fault, and I don't care if she's old or what not. Anyways, I thanked her and left. That's how my Monday went... Obviously not a great day!

Sephora Haul

After doing a little testing and comparison at Sephora's, I was able to make my list and order online. I probably had so many things listed down at first, but after realizing how much I spent a few days ago (not just on makeup), I seriously had to calm down. Hence, I ended picking the ones I really needed. Here is what I got:

1) Urban Decay Primer Potion - I gotta check out this talk of the town good stuff!

2) Urban Decay Surreal Mineral Makeup - Hope this works for me!

3) Too Faced Shadow Insurance - always good to have another eyeshadow primer around, yeah?! Gotta try this baby out too!

4) Nars blush in Orgasm - tried it in-store. Looks great! And that's pretty much it.

I'm so happy with the 20% discount. I wish I could have bought more stuff! But on the other hand, I should be contented.... Or arleast, I am trying to be. Hehe!  Well, I should be getting my goodies in the mail this week. Can't wait!

They're Here!!!

I just got word from my sister-in-law that Costco has started selling the Borghese Makeup brushes for this year's holiday season. YAYYYY! We've been waiting for these brushes for a long, long time! Unfortunately, we were not able to get last year's and the year before. I know, it's so depressing. Well, I'll have to go this weekend and buy me a set, they look pretty! : ) I hope they don't run out... I have got to try them out! : )

Look what I got from the mall today...

I love it, love it, love it! I thought it was too much for it's price ($225) but when I opened it the first time, I could tell the quality was just different... it feels smooth and sturdy, and when you expand it, you can see everything right in front of you...4 tiers, no hide's AWESOME!

Now, I got to think of a way to fill this bad boy! : )
