Hello Kitty Sephora Private Event


I just got this in my email today! Sephora is having a 2-day only, online preview sale of the HELLO KITTY collection!! I already want the Brush set, apple lip balm and fragrance. And the nail stickers are really cute too. I thought I’d bought enough from Sephora after the FF Sale, then the VIB Sale, then the Holiday giftcards. Now this? It’s like Sephora is out to get all my money or something…

Some product pictures:

Hello Kitty Brush Set, the brushes are all pink-tipped and fit into the HK tin! Retails for $49.

Hello Kitty fragrance in the cutest spray bottle *-*

Apple pot lip balm, the color payoff is supposed to be as good as a lipstick but we’ll see! The cute apple pot and HK logo are enough to make me buy this though. But then again, you could put Hello Kitty’s face on a bottle of water and I’d probably buy it, so…

The collection launches officially in-stores and online in mid-January, and I have a feeling everything will sell out quick!


Too Faced Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set

It’s a brush set made of Teddy Bear hair!! How cute is that<3 Okay so it’s not real Teddy Bear hair obviously (who else is as disappointed as I am that there aren’t real Teddy Bears just walking around?), but Too Faced does claim that the synthetic fibers “feel identical to the soft and silky smooth hair of real animals”. If you want to try this set out, it’s $65 at Sephora.

Teddy Bear hair, mmmm..


It’s December 1st, and I’ve decided to participate in Dressember, a challenge where for the whole month I’ll have to wear a dress! Not the same one obviously, and you can wear a skirt/top if you have to too. Off the facebook page:


“December 1st marks the beginning of ‘Dressember’ – the challenge for women (or the adventurous male) everywhere to shake up their wardrobe and try ditching the jeans and t-shirts.

We’re aiming to wear dresses as often as possible – don’t worry if it’s not practical in the day, you can go for a skirt/top combo if needed, or have fun and dress up in the evening in that cocktail dress you never get to wear!”

I suspect this challenge is going to be a lot easier once I’m back in Singapore over Christmas (though I’m not sure how I’m going to spend 20 hours on a plane in a dress!), since it’s been way too easy to just roll out of bed, throw on jeans and roll to school. It’s also cold in Boston, and any dress or skirt will have to be paired with tights, which means I’ll be another two minutes later to class! I remember some day in September when I put on jeans, and it was the first time since February that I’d worn them, and I was so sad that I’d broken my 7-month no-jeans streak! I’m ridiculously vain, and even in 2 degrees Celsius I’ll still put on tights and a skirt under my coat. This semester though, well… Let’s just say that Dressember is a great way to get back into wearing dresses all the time again!

Feel free to join me in this challenge 🙂
