Priceline Skincare Haul

priceline skincare haul

Happy Friday folks! #TGIF

Did you go to the recent Priceline 40% skincare sale? On Tuesday & Wednesday, Priceline had 40% off all skincare, both in store and online. I wasn’t planning on going but on Tuesday morning, I saw everyone’s purchases on instagram and … I caved. I didn’t just go on Tuesday, I went Wednesday at lunch time too. If you are on a budget, stay away from instagram. It’s like a crazy tornado that sucks you right into the hype haha.

Because I wasn’t planning on buying anything, majority of my purchases were ‘grab whatever I could get my hands on’.

Here’s what I got:

  • La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Eye Contour
  • La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Serum
  • La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+
  • La Roche-Posay Sensi White Foaming Cream
  • La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL
  • Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution
  • Bioderma Sensibio Mask
  • NUXE Nirvanesque Contour Des Yeux
  • Neutrogena Triple Protect Face Lotion

The Anthelios XL, Effaclar Duo+ and Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution were re-purchases. The Neutrogena Triple Protect Face Lotion was also a repurchase but for the husband. This one works well on his combo/oily skin, doesn’t block pores or cause any break outs.

What did you buy from the Priceline sale? Let me know in the comments below!!

Creating Memories with Emma And Roe

Emma & Roe

Happy Monday folks!

In the last few years, charm bracelets have been increasing in popularity. There are hundreds and hundreds of charms to choose from to personalise your very own special bracelet. Some choose to decorate their bracelets based on travel destinations, romantic sentiments, favourite animals or even food. I jumped on the charm bracelet bandwagon fours years ago and I fill my bracelets based on milestones or special events in my life. I find it’s a really good conversation starter if you run out of things to talk about with friends or random people you just met. These days there are a few companies that specialise in charm bracelets and one of these is .

The Emma and Roe range was initially sold in Michael Hill stores but they became so popular, they branched out online and opened free-standing stores. What’s cool about the Emma and Roe website is you can build your very own charm bracelets directly online by choosing the type of bracelet and adding on different charms. You can see instantly how the bracelet looks and chop & change charms as you please.

One of the good things about charm bracelets is that even if you’re on a budget, you can still afford good quality jewelry for family or friends without breaking the bank. If you’re feeling lazy, you can even buy a charm for every birthday and will never have to think about what to buy again!

Emma & Roe

I was super spoiled by Emma and Roe, they allowed me to choose a few pieces to feature on my blog. The charms and bracelets that I received were made from 925 sterling silver, were high quality and had fantastic craftsmanship. Both bracelets can be opened and closed easily with one hand.

Here I chose the  Pink Glass & Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet. This starter bracelet comes with a bracelet and 7 charms to help kick start my Emma and Roe charm collection. This bracelet feels light and does not weigh down my wrist. I totally love the feature pink Murano glass charm. I accidentally dropped my bracelet onto my floorboards and can safely report back that nothing was broken, you can be assured that the charms are sturdy and does not break easily.

The next item I picked was the Purple Triple Wrap Leather Charm Bracelet (52cm) and I also added 2 individual charms to it. I have tiny wrists and this leather bracelet fits perfectly. So if you have a slightly wider wrist, I would suggest buying a bigger size. I’ve been wearing it everyday since I received it a couple of weeks ago and it’s still in perfect condition. Emma and Roe also provides a care instruction card to ensure that the product is kept looking good for longer.

The first charm I selected is the Pink Cubic Zirconia Pave. I chose this because it would look good on it’s own or combined with my pink Glass & Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet plus it was pink and sparkly so I could not resist.

The second charm I picked is the Eiffel Tower. I’ve always wanted to visit Paris and I seriously loved how cute this charm looks. One day when I finally get to go visit Paris, this charm will have a special meaning.

Did I tell you that Emma and Roe provides complimentary gift wrapping for each purchase? How good is that!!

I have to admit this charm collecting business is quite addictive. Just like the Pringles slogan, “Once you pop, you can’t stop”.

Do you own a charm bracelet?

Goodies from Taiwan!

Goodies from Taiwan_beautyandthings
Well chickadees, my trip has come to an end. I’ve been back since Tuesday and went straight to work the following day. It was an amazing trip with lots of eating and sightseeing. I thought I would post about beauty goodies from Taiwan. There were so much stuff that I wanted but I had to keep to a budget. Most of the beauty products I bought were from Watsons, SaSa and Innisfree.

As you can see, I had a thing for face masks this trip. I actually bought 6 boxes and ended up using an entire box while I was over there. I would have bought more but they take up a fair bit of room in my luggage.

Shopping at Innisfree was pretty awesome. I bought 5 individual face mask sheets and they gave me 2 free gifts – the cleansing kit and their best loved collection. Gotta love freebies!!
Goodies from Taiwan Watsons_beautyandthings
Here are my Watsons and other drugstore purchases except for the Tony Moly Lip Gloss. I didn’t realise the Biore UV Aqua was that popular until I posted on instagram. It was a random purchase for the husband but now I’ve claimed it as mine. I should have perhaps bought another just in case.
Goodies from Taiwan Jill Stuart blush_beautyandthings
This is my favourite purchase of all – my first ever Jill Stuart product. The packaging is so fancy yet ultra girly, it even comes with a brush. I’m going through a huge dilemma. On one hand, I want to start using it and the other I don’t want to ruin such a precious blush haha.

That’s it for this post, stay tuned next week for the next post where I talk about my trip to Taiwan.

Let me know if you have tried any of the products above, would love to hear your thoughts.

Everything was purchased by me.
