My picks for and updates (3/5)

Hi all! It's a relief that I'm finally back after such a long break from blogging. Well, it isn't exactly a break, I was really busy with my schoolwork and practice that eventually put off the time to blog. (Yeah, I'm that busy!) Just a short update about what I have been doing for the past few months and my picks for

1. Met up with my friend, Joey, and brought her to the Korean shop near my school! She passed me a bag of goodies which she've CP-ed from BKK for me; ZOMG, thanks a lot!

 2. Have been busy with assignments, deadlines and tests for these few months~

3. Had a swap with Dominque from US as part of a Valentine's Day event. I've got to try out all that she have in store for me- NYX stick blushers, NYX lip creme, ELF and Wet&Wild products. Really have to thank her for the parcel! (Click here to see what I've got for her)

4. My mini haul from Watsons- all Garnier Whitening masks! Heard that they're highly raved in Niu Er's book. I've got Sexylook's Hello Kitty Masks too~

5. Met Madelyn Michiyo at Etude House. I'm supposed to get an auto eyeliner from Etude House, however, it's OOS by the time I went in ); However, I had a good time with her in the shop and got a pastel pink nail polish for my friend^^

6. Had my first Starbucks date with Cookie few days ago after my exams. We DIY-ed nail polish rings and it was a nice experience with different kinds of nail polishes, something which I never had before!

7. Won an 25-hours Astrology watch :D
Finally, my new watch after many many years...
