More Hauls (EXPO & CK Tang) & Crafting

My ironing board broke. Actually it didn't break, it was just wobbly and the covering was coming off, and I didn't want to iron on it, in case it really broke. So, I catastrophised and thought the iron might drop on my feet. Then, took the opportunity to ask the husband to drive me to the Expo, where the Robinson's warehouse sale was happening, and I knew there was some good Lunasol and Kanebo buys to be had. I don't like driving his car (I do have a history of adding bangs and dents to his cars) to strange places, and Expo is strange to me, I always get lost in that area. So, Sunday morning was the only time he was willing to bring me there, and I hauled makeup and skin care on top of a nice, new sturdy ironing board haha. Obligatory haul photos. 001copy Lunasol Palettes at S$35 in Orange Coral (05) and Blue Green Variation (05); Coffret Dor lippies at S$19 (I think) in RD171, OR-98 and PK-236; Coffret Dor concealor at S$25; and Givenchy Prisme Again! in Charming Violet (04) at S$20. 002copy Faircrea Mask at S$20 I think, Faircrea fash wash (not pictured) S$20, Ahava Dead Sea Mud mask packaged with face wash and sample cream at S$51. 003copy The other day I was over at CK Tang to look for lunch, then on a whim bought this Guerlain Pearly White compact at S$35 (thanks to the info from Haru and Tracy). The SA said there's only colour no. 32 left. It's fate that it's the closest colour match to my skin tone. I got to make sure that the next few months will be haul-free. I need to start on project 10-pan or something similar so I can finish up all that I bought. Haha. On another note, I thought I was going to give up crafting, forever, but it looks like I can't. I ended up working on these. 005copy And made a felt needle book. 006copy Now all my needles are sitting pretty, nice and neat inside. 007copy And Christmas decoration work-in-progress, using left-over scrapbooking material. 004copy I've been having this cough for I don't know how long, and finally I succumbed to the doctor's advice to get a blood test and xray done to rule out this and that. And to confirm if it's pneumonia or whatever. I don't know. Thank goodness it's all covered by the husband's company health insurance plan. © Copyright. All rights reserved.
