Pandora Seasonal Jewelry Case

A week before Christmas, I got myself a jewelry case. Because of my constant traveling, I wanted to keep all of rings and watches with me without getting damaged along the way. At the same time, I didn't want anything big and bulky. Since I'm currently down south of Florida for the holidays, I checked out one of the local malls here. I went hunting in Claire's, Dillard's, and Macy's but they had nothing what I was looking for. My last stop was Pandora - I got super lucky because they were selling their jewelry cases ranging from USD $15-20! 😊👍

I got too excited that I just wanted to take pictures after I purchased it!

Miss & Mrs Vietnamese-America 2017 Pageant

On December 3, I was invited to the Miss & Mrs Vietnamese-America 2017 Pageant. On my last post I mentioned I had the opportunity to meet Thanh Giang and was offered to attend the event for free. The original V.I.P. tickets cost USD $60. The event was held at the DoubleTree By Hilton Hotel around Downtown Orlando.

Stage for the special event!

Interview with Thanh Giang: Runner-up of Ms.Vietnam Global 2016

Life is unpredictable. And my encounter with Thanh Giang was a great, unpredictable experience. I had a night off on December 2, so Katrina and I headed off to Disney Springs since I've been stressing out on college finals. On our way back to Starbucks from roaming around, a Vietnamese woman wanted me to take her picture. The next thing I knew we got close and personal about our lives.

Black Friday Shopping Haul 2017

Did any of you went shopping on Black Friday? I sure did! I try to save up money as much as possible for every Black Friday. I mean, who can resist 30, 40, 75 percent or more on stuff? Right?! Anyway, Katrina and I went to 3 different places to do our shopping: Tampa Premium Outlets, Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets, and Ross.

Lemongrass Spa Products

   There was an event a few weeks ago in my college and I had the chance to get samples from this wonderful brand called Lemongrass Spa. I was also mailed brochures, and a catalog full of their products.

Lemongrass Spa is a company founded 15 years ago in which they pride their products by using simple, clean, and natural ingredients without settling for less. Their brand ranges from skincare to cosmetics and even spa products. I was fortunate to be given some samples of their latest products. Their new line for the Fall/Winter 2017, I received the Espresso Body Scrub, Winter Gardenia Body Icing, and the Almond Biscotti Hand & Body Soap!

PÜR PRO X Etienne Ortega Eyeshadow Palette

I finally tested out the PUR PRO X Etienne Ortega Eyeshadow Palette. Here is my opinion: It's absolutely WORTH IT! The eyeshadows are buildable, very pigmented, and blends easily. It's also vegan, gluten free, and 100% cruelty-free! The palette is perfect for me since I have sensitive eyes and psoriasis. 

There are literally billions of eyeshadow palettes out right now and I was honestly overwhelmed which one to get. Honestly, I haven't bought an eyeshadow palette since 2015! It made me so happy there was finally a palette that didn't had talc, and parabens. Anyway, here's what the eyeshadow palette looks like:

The palette comes in a black cardboard case.

I was introduced to PUR Cosmetics by one of the sales associates at my local ULTA Beauty store. I decided not to test out any of the other lip products from PUR Cosmetics during my shopping spree since I wanted to give you guys an honest, first impression review of them in this blog!

Flying off with my dreams

I've been very occupied with college lately. Stressful, but it will be rewarding in the end with my degree. My favorite subjects so far are Business Law and Macro-Economics. When I got back this semester I notice the campus lunch menu has drastically improved (Yay!) Back then I'd rather order a salad or a to-go sushi box outside of school. Haha! I admit I'm a picky eater. When I'm not on this blog I'm doing a ton of homework and online quizzes. So far I have been updating more of my life through Instagram. At first, I wasn't into Instagram because I just thought it was like Twitter (I never really liked Twitter, even until today I barely get on.) However I realized how Instagram is more entertaining and it gives me the chance to express myself whatever is going on at the moment. I also got a new Canon camera because I felt like I needed a serious upgrade. Instead of splurging on a USD $300+ new camera, I decided to settle down with a 2nd hand camera that I got from the pawnshop.
