REVIEW: Influenster Vox Gillette Venus

Hello world! Look at what I got from Influenster Vox Box! A cute little Gillette Venus Razor. I have seen them all around Target and drugstores. I use the regular Gillette Venus from time to time and it's great to try out this baby version of it!

It's basically your regular razor on a shorter handle. Come in a plastic case so it's super travel friendly. Perfect for gym bags or carry on!

& good news! I finally have a set working schedule next month! Will be traveling to Shanghai all month in June. It's been forever and I'm extremely happy about it. Thank God for saving me from schedulers. I don't like to talk too much about my work online, but let's just said I've had way more than enough from May. On the positive note, it's going to be a whole lot better in June! :)

Ciao! <3

REVIEW: BEST Lip balm Lip Treatment ever!


Wow I don't know how other bloggers can keep up with blogging. Life is just too busy lately and I kind of forget about blogging. 

Reasons being... (excuses, I know! HAHA!)

My birthday was in January and i can say this year was my favorite bday so far. My bf and my bff threw me a surprised bday get-together along with my close friends. February was busier than ever, I flew around the world pretty much.. went all over the states, europe and central america. On top of the hectic work schedule, I was informed by my coworker that my work transfer was granted during my layover in Milan on Valentine's day! So I pretty much had less than a week to pack all of my stuff in NJ and move back to CA. 

Everything worked out at the end and I'm very happy about moving back home. :)

So, some time in February I went to Paris for work. I searched all around for the infamous NUXE Reve de Miel because of essiebutton HAHA! I got it for just under 10 so that's about $14. 

I already have Dior Creme de rose $28, it was my favorite lip treatment for a while. 

Since I have the two most talked about lip treatment on the youtube world.. Let's do a comparison.

These two are both made in Paris, France. Nuxe has 15g/.52oz and Dior has 7.2g/.25oz of product. Nuxe has a very fresh citrus scent and Dior, of course has a light rosy scent. 

They both apply buttery on the lips. I definitely enjoy using both; they are luxurious. Packaging wise, they both come in a jar; though Nuxe does come in lipstick tube form. I'd say they are equally moisturizing. Great as overnight lip treatments or just your everyday lip balm. I wouldn't use these on the go because you have to apply it with either your finger or lip brush/applicator. For sanitary reason, I prefer to use it at home with a cotton swap. 

Other than that, these are very comparable. If you can get a hand on either of them, give them a try. I highly recommend them! 

Until next time, take care!

Influenster Jolly Vox Box 2013 Review

Supposedly the #jollyvoxbox is the best box influenster has to offer in the year. well, that's what they claimed to be. (last time i qualified for another infulenster box, after i filled out my shipping address and everything, they sent me an email saying they ran out and oops too bad but you'll get the best box of the year, referring to the jollyvoxbox.)

let me just say. im quite disappointed. even though i got this for free, i had to speak whats on my mind...

Puffs Ultra Soft & Strong To Go Tissue Pack (value: $0.49)
Why is this even in the box. It's useful and everything but why?!

NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eyeshadow in Long Beach Sands ($2.99)
another NYC product. This is the third time in a row that i got from my influentser boxes.

Rimmel London NEW Show Off Lip Lacquer in Stargazer ($5.49-$5.99)
the only thing that stood out to me! im so excited to try it out. this was actually something i considered buying because of essiebutton! :)

Skinny Cow Candy Divine Filled Chocolates in Peanut Butter Creme ($3.99 per box)
i love skinny cow. i love it way before influenster. but too bad they had to include the peanut butter favor.. not my favorite but not bad!

Ducklings Mini Rolls Duct Tape ($2-$3)
again, why?! holiday gift wrapping maybe? but to be honest, this colorful duct tape with design on them only makes the gift wrapping tackier than ever. Duct tape is good to have around, but why is it in the holiday box?!

Overall, not impressed. If this is the "best" box influenster has to offer. It's quite an disappointment. I must admit I have gotten better boxes from influenster.

Anyways. Happy holidays!

DIY gifts - Totoro

For those of you who like totoro, there's what I made using felt for $0.99!

You'll need three felt in total, black, grey, and white. I got mine from micheals for $0.33each.

draw your Totoro on paper, use it as a guide when cutting out totoros body. You'll need 2 identical pieces.  

Repeat this step for eyes and belly (2 small circles and 1 rectangle with rounded corners)
Arrange all the pieces together before sewing (or hot glue). Don't forget the 3 ^^^ on totoros chest area. as for totoros nose, an upside down triangle will do
Sew or glue all pieces together leaving a small opening to stuff your totoros with cotton balls, close off the opening and you're done!
