Warning: Long Post & Picture Heavy

I can't believe it's already march, and I only got less than two days to pack our stuff cuz' guess what? we're moving again....but this time although I don't like the place that we are moving to but I'm not complaining, I can't wait to leave our current place for some reason....

last week I got a surprise love package♥♥ from the wonderful Dina....she's such a sweetheart...thanks for my late Valentine's & CNY goodies dina....
The Pink SkinFood Nailpolish is so pretty, and the SilverQueen Chunky Bar is so yummy...it's white chocolate with stawberry & cashew, what more can you ask for...all those candies were gone in a minute...and pooh as tigger is so cute...It sure made my day!!!Thanks girl..**Mwah**


I also want to thank the gorgeous Julie (Pop Champange), I got to win her Skin MD Giveaway...I normally don't win on giveaways but I got lucky ^_^...I received the Skin MD Shielding Lotion a long time ago with some samples so I already use it a few times on my body & face and I like it....It's not sticky, it doesn't feel like you're using anything at all....highly recommend this especially on hot & humid weather.
EkiLove Haul

I finally got to own some of eki's creations, it always get sold out but I was able to grab some last week ^_^ and I'm so happy.....

Here's the Package...so kawaiii

Here's what's Inside: so much free goodies a pretty pearl earrings, a flower ring, 2 eye masks & some candies which I've been craving today :(....can anyone help me get those green tea candies?

Eki's creations are so beautiful, It really is made with love
Lush Haul:

It's my first time to buy something at lush I've been a frequent visitor to the store but I always don't know what to get so I always left empty handed, so when we went to NYC last month I've been searching the web & asking some blogger babes what they could recommend & here's what i got for myself:

Honey I Washed the Kids soap...this is my favorite, it smells so good..

Magic Mushroom Bubble Bars

The Comforter Bubble Bar

Ex-Factor Bath Bomb

I forgot what this is..SOWEEE!!but obviously it's a bath bomb..:Dthese are all the goodies that I got for myself...mister also got some bath bombs for him & his aunt...lol...he's so vain....more vain than I am...
Random Hauls:
These hauls are bought in the month of December, January & February

I've been addicted to Japanese Mags lately...My favorite is Sweet...
the best thing about it...are the GWP...^_^

sunniipinky said...

Hi Iris! Wow...this was a gigantic post! Thanks for sharing everything first of all! (I'm having trouble starting because there was just so much in that post~)

Your ekiLove package looks really awesome and I'm waiting for mine also! ^___^ Those eye masks look mightily interesting. :D & her packaging is always so adorable~

The mushroom bubble bars are so cute! Please do a review on the Lush products if you have the chance~ You have so much goodies~

All of your own hauls, wow~~ I'd love to dig into your collection of Japanese magazines and I sometimes get sucked into buying them because of the GIFT, oh...those gifts are so evil in the sense that they're so incredibly tempting. & all the beauty items, awesome awesome!

Congrats on you and your husband's 2nd wedding anniversary! Your comment about him being vain because he buys Lush products made me lol~~

& the pig bunny at the end of your post is so adorable! <3

I probably wanted to comment on a lot more, but I don't think of anything right now. Thanks for the long post! It must've taken you a while. xD

VanityMakeup said...

Wow, lovely stuff!

I've been looking for that Ecotools by Alicia Silverstone kit for ages, but I guess they don't have them in Australia.

Have they been in your stores for a while now? or have they just arrived? Because it takes a while for US products to come to AUD.

so much haul you did during these few mths.. hows the ecotools? i been wanting to get some.

the accessories from eki are gorgeous! ya its always OOS somehow thats the reason why i havent got my hands on them as im not fast enuf.

the gwp for those jap mag are fab. sometimes i buy the mag due to the gwp as its just so hard to try to figure out what the product is as its all in jap but at the same time its cost saving since i dun understand i wun not splurge on them Lol

Have a great wknd!

Love everything! Especially the Lush Honey soap (smells sooo yummy) and the nail polishes!

Oh, and the Matcha (green tea) milk candies, I was going to suggest Mitsuwa to get a bag of those, haha! But I've had those before, they're super tasty- I think they should sell them in at least some Asian supermarkets..? I'll keep an eye out for ya!
