Surprise Gift and Current Updates

So I have been MIA once again for a month. Once you get out of the blogging mood, it really doesn't want to make you budge. My personal life has been very busy including new relationship, schoolwork, and stress from everything. Maybe I shouldn't be making excuses? I need to use blogging as an outlet to relieve stress!! :)

Anyway I will be posting today a very belated one on a Secret Santa gift I received from Fuzkittie way back in the end of December.


Her gift included a very cute Christmas/New Year's card, two perfume samples, a L'Occitane lipgloss and cream set, and a JuJu Cosmetics primer.
The JuJu hyaluronic primer that I haven't even tried yet :( Can't put lots of base makeup because it has been causing me blemishes...

The hand cream is in Sweet Cherry and the lipgloss is also a Cherry Blossom flavor. Both are really moisturizing and I love them! I loved the hand cream so much that I was tempted to buy the set from Sephora...

So I ended up hauling a little! I think this was the time when that Beauty Insiders $15, $25 off coupon was going around. I think mine was only $15 off a $35 purchase. I also bought the Rosebud Salve trio which is really cute!

Close-up shot of all the lipbalms and the canister. Right now I've only opened the Minted Rose salve. I love the tingly feeling I get when I spread this on my lips. I don't know if this was a good purchase because it was rather impulsive but I still like the product! It gives a very juicy look to the lips and plumps them up.

So this President's holiday I had a week off from school and it happened to be my grandmother's one year death anniversary. It is a very important date in Japanese Culture and it is called Isshuki (一周忌). I know this might be a morbid picture but my grandmother's family grave is very pretty! It is a quiet and private area with large space. I didn't travel to Japan only to visit a grave, of course I took advantage of the chance to go shop around and meet up with various members of family. I tried to plan to meet with some bloggers like Kay and Nic Nic but it didn't work out because Kay was busy and I didn't have enough time to meet Nic :( However I will try to meet them again next time!

I hope I will not give up blogging. I still read people's blogs daily but I am very lazy to update my own. Blogging is really fun for me and I've met a lot of genuine people. Take care, everyone!

Hi Mika! It's so good to hear from you, sweetie. *hugs* Looks like you got yourself a lot of great goodies!

Lulu said...

yay great to hear from you again :D l'occitane products sound amazing! i need to go try out their hand cream. how did you like the juju primer?

Catherine said...

Hey!!!! It's so great to hear from you!

Aww, hope everything calms down for you & that you're taking good care of yourself. Blogging & taking time to primp in the morning are my two main sources of stress relief so I always make time for both because I know if I go without for too long I just end up frazzled and very unhappy lol.

Lovely gift & haul and I think it's very beautiful that you got to visit your late grandmother's grave. =)

Don't worry about taking a break from blogging, everyone needs a break once in awhile :) By the way, great package! The l'occitane stuff looks really nice!

Blair said...

Hi Mika, I'm so glad to read your posts again!

Hope you have fun in JP, even though it's for your grandma's Isshuki :)

MiuMiu said...

I agree with the non blogging when you're not on a roll haha, i've been soo lazy with mine, not to mention i've cut back a lot of buying new unnecessary makeup.
Hopefully you'll get to meet Kay and Nicnic one day, they're super nice!

Nic Nic said...

ohh I have never tried L'occitine products - definitely worth thinking about! I'm going to check out their body cremes once I'm done with my Korres one!

its a shame we couldn't meet up, like I said, there's always another time :) you should update when you can, and when you feel like it! the most important thing is actually enjoying blogging :)

the MAC palette is very pretty! I heard they sold out in some places in the US already! :S I dont even know if theyll release in it Japan.. might take forever :P

Natalie Nguyen said...

Hey missed you much~! Loved all the goodies you got!
I don't think it's morbid taking a picture of that =) The place is VERY pretty!
