things to be happy for this week


Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

There’s a reason why it’s the best-selling loose powder in the world, and that is because it is that good. THAT good. I’m ashamed of myself for taking this long to try it. My skin looks smoother, doesn’t get oily very fast, and looks like I’m not wearing any powder at all. I have been wearing this every day to work right after my sunscreen or dr jart+ cream, pat this on with a big fluffy brush and I’m good to go for the whole day.

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Filmstar Bronze & Glow: Contour & Highlighter Palette

OH MY GOD. Can we just – throws confetti – to whoever at Charlotte Tilbury for creating this product? A few weeks ago, I accidentally dropped my thebalm mary lou manizer that I’ve had for 8 years (yikes!) in the toilet. It was the only highlighter I have as I find it redundant to have more than just one. I saw someone reviewing this one day and I thought hm maybe I should get it, looks nice. It’s a contour and highlight duo that is very easy to use as the colour is buildable so you can always add more. I do not contour because I never find it necessary, but last week we had a celebration at work so I thought mm okay full-face makeup it is. I put it on and it was just *chef’s kiss* Very easy to apply, looks great on my skin tone, and it’s foolproof for people like me who’s not used to contouring. Loooove.

Good Virtues Co Micellar Rose Perfumed Shower Cream

For body, my setup for shower creams would be that I would have one bottle of regular, everyday one and a few bottles (currently, four bottles) of perfumed ones from Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works. I ran out of my regular one which usually just something you can get at the supermarket. I wanted to stray from the usual brand I used to buy, Lux, and got myself the GVC shower cream in Rose. I smelled another one – ylang ylang – which was delicious but it was the only bottle left and I personally wouldn’t go for it if it’s the last bottle just because. It smells heavenly and the smell stays on for quite some time. Would definitely get a refill next time.

My blog and blogging

Hello hello, fourth blog post in a week and it’s not even the weekend yet! Now that my kids are both at that age where they can play by themselves (2Y9M and 1Y8M) and sleep through the night better, this momma has some time to spare for her blog, you guys. I don’t know if anyone’s been reading this but at this point, I’m doing this for myself. My needs for writing and sharing my daily lives and loves have been cooped up for too long. It’s time to open the treasure box full of ideas, dust it away and write, write, write.
