Rose Rose I love you~; NOTD; NYX Lipsticks

Rose, Rose I love you with an aching heart.
What is your future, now we have to part?
Standing on the jetty as the steamer moves away,
Flower of Malaya, I cannot stay.

-Rose Rose I Love you, Frankie Laine, 1940


I'm starting to gather that perhaps I might have a little problem with Roses.


This is only a small part of my rose collection

I love them a little too much. Only the scent though. It's weird considering I'm not much of a fan of the actual Rose. I prefer lilies; Casablanca and Calla lily are a favourite but I can't stand their smell.

Haul of the day



It's not even lunch time and I have exhausted my wallet. Queen E (Elisa) managed to get some Raspberry mask from The Face Shop for only RM60 instead of the usual RM99. So yay! All hail, QE!

Bought the much needed white nail polish from Elianto again since my old one is drying up along with L'Occitane solid Rose perfume *cough*. Talk about impulse buy along with other unmentionables.

Also, the lipstick from NYX that I wanted so badly finally came; Orange Soda and Strawberry Milk. The swatches from online showed Orange Soda to be a beautiful light orangey-peach. And it is.



I love this seller, the package came in less than 2 days after paying for it. For ONCE, a seller that is prompt. I don't haggle, I don't demand a lot, I just want my packages to come on time for God's sakes!

Then again, just knowing my luck...



I have paid for broken lipsticks thanks to our wonderful postal service. The package came resembling something people have stepped on.

The lipsticks broke and so did my heart. I waited over a month for them!

I knew I couldn't trust Samy Vellu when he loudly promised Pos Laju's (translation: Fast Post) slogan to be "Send tomorrow, arrive today". Yes he actually said that, but what I think he meant was send today, arrive tomorrow. Then again, fast in one thing, arriving in one piece is another.

Well, the colour turned out weird on me anyway so..



I was expecting Strawberry Milk to be funky on me, I didn't fit the MAC Saint Germaine or whatever so I was expecting it but I had a lot of hope on Orange Soda. In the end, Orange Soda looked weirder on me that Strawberry Milk. I'm gonna go hide under my blanket now, thank you very much.

On a happier note, I finally bought some Konad stamp plates after debating with myself for over 3 months.

NOTD - Uhh.. Swirly Cherry Blossoms or something


Sorry, I didn't clean the side of my nails yet.

Ooooh the raspberry mask! I hope to see a review of it. :D
White nail polish is really classy lately. I like the appearance it gives the nails. I used to be indifferent, but now it's one of my favorites. Hehe.

I'm sorry about the broken lipsticks. >_< That's always the possibility from buying flimsy things off the internet.

Nail stamps are gorrrgeous by the way! Love the pattern!

Pretty nails! I've been avoiding the whole Konad thing for fear I jump in head first and buy a ton of stuff I don't need. (Impulse buys are the worst :\) About the lippies, can you add a gloss on top to maybe get a color you like better? And I'm the opposite when it comes to roses. Have no problems with the flowers but tend to avoid products with the scent!

(LMAO at "Sir Stingy"! No, he's just being fiscally responsible. :)
