Kern's and Elyn's gifts! Thank youuuu~

A short update

The weather has been absolutely perfect lately, it's cool and breezy and it's been raining. I love the rain.

Been feeling mighty lazy to update my blog after the whole Ganguro and Arabic look in less than 2 days apart. Yes yes, I wasn't exactly born very hardworking, I realized. *scratches ass and yawn*

Kidding, moving along, was out with Kern and Lawrence on Sunday for dinner since it was Lawrence's birthday that night and out of the blue, Kern said she bought a new lip balm for me and Elisa. I remember my shock. I went, "Huh? It's not my birthday, that just past! What's the occasion?" It's funny because Elisa later gave the exact same reaction.

THANK YOU KERN!


Ta daaaa, green tea lip balm!


It's green! Much to my surprise and taste a little like green tea after all

Last Friday night, I was having some issues that I just couldn't think of an answer. I was left confused and annoyed so I did the next best thing, I texted Elyn. I must apologize to Elyn since I sent the message at an ungodly hour. But I value Elyn's insights and advises on things such as these and I know she'll one way or another have an answer.

She texted me back the next day saying to meet up in QB on Monday at 1pm. I couldn't sleep out of excitement and ended up waking late for our meeting. I act like a little kid sometimes, I know.

I've often write about Elyn and even knowing her for months now, I love here more and more everyday. I thank God that Elyn came into my life and for all the wrong things that I did in my past life, I'm happy that I must have did something right to have known her. She has been my shoulder to cry on and my wall of support as well as a mentor, a mother and best of all a superb friend.

After the chat we had, I had this immense burden on my mind and heart lifted. I sat there amazed at the feeling, I can't describe the feeling but I'm so thankful. It's like growings your wings once again and the soul feels so much lighter and you question yourself, why was it even such a big deal in the first place.



After the chat, she took out a small goodie bag and pass them to me as I sat there in shock. I careful unzipped everything and I could tell that like all her other gifts, she has put a lot of thoughts into them. She included the Burt's Bees hand creme and also a lemon nail cuticle cream, a NYX round lipstick in Circe, Etude House eyeshadow in GR662, a sample of Skin79 Diamond Prestige BB cream that she recently got, Ecotools face buffers and a cute Burt's Bee bag.

Why I was in shock because these are the things that I've been eyeing. The Etude House eyeshadow was something I had planned to get Elyn but since I'm late and she got to QB way before I did I never got the chance. The NYX lip colour was the colour I've been looking for. I've been on the search for a nude colour lipstick for years and Pumpkin Pie turned out a little too orange-y. I love Pumpkin Pie but it's hard to believe after so long, I've gotten the perfect nude lipstick. It totally inspires me to do a Smokey FOTD everytime I look at it. I'm so excited.

EcoTools face buffer was something, I'm so pleased and happy to get. Ever since my electric toothbrush I bought to scrub my face died, I've been left with...my hands. I've been loving them, You can read about them from Elyn's blog here.

I know this is not one colour I can wear frequently nor can I wear this everyday. I'll look too pale in this but with a Smokey eyes, this will be perfect! It's been a while since I had smokey eyes on so I'm really very excited. So Expect a Smokey Eye FOTD soon!

That is sooo sweet of Kern and Elyn. =D Makes my heart warm up (although it's raining again outside).
And yup, I love cool breezy days as well. Don't really like the hot sweaty days that we usually get here.
Enjoy your goodies. =)

@TJ
I consider ourselves the lucky few who really have people caring and loving us. I can't imagine my life without any real close/good friends :D

@Hey Emily!!
Since Kern got those for us, I don't really know where she gets it from. I'll try asking though!

@Caramel Geek
LoL, I love love the rain too, wonder where it's all gone, and thanks for dropping by!!

@Dana
Thankies Dana~
My nails are indeed brittle especially my index fingers. I sometimes wonder if it has anything to do with the food we eat :P
