MJRSales splurge, and more

Purchased a few things from MJRSales. I was tempted by their free shipping offer.

First batch, I bought them when they had free shipping when bought 2 or more clearance items. I bought myself a Victoria's Secret satin slip lingerie. I had been wanting a simple lingerie, but didn't want to pay a lot. I usually only wear cotton sleepwear LOL
The satin feels REALLY nice. Very soft and silky! It's just around $9.xx. The top, bought it just to get free shipping. It's a nice basic top.

$15.76 shipped

Second batch, a few days after that deal above was over, they had another free shipping deal, this time free shipping with any purchase. So I decided to buy a bunch of The Limited basic tees.

Total $41.32 shipped

I love these two sweetheart-neckline tees. I love the material. Unfortunately, even though it's my regular size, they fit kinda too small. These tees don't have spandex, so they are not stretchy.

These two tops, same size as above, but they fit just fine and comfortable. I thought the first top was wine red, but actually the color is deep dark purple. The brown babydoll is cute, I can wear it as an off-shoulder too.

Waking up at 7:50 am every Saturday to check out Hautelook has become my weekly habit. It's because it's the day when Hautelook has the blowout sales,up to 70% off at 8 am PST !

C&C California Handkerchief Bella Tunic - $19+s/h (Orig. $75)

I love love tops with this kind of uneven hem. If you've been following my blog, you know I bought a few in the past. Heheh ☺
Glad I picked the right size! It fits as modeled. I once bought a C&C CA top in the past, and it's kinda too small. So this time I bought one size bigger.

I saw this tunic on ideeli site awhile ago. Then, I found the same one on eBay for cheaper price. This tunic is quite unique. I thought it's made of lace all over, but actually it is a tunic with lace design burnout, which is a good thing, because if it's lace all over, it'd be itchy. The tunic is semi-sheer. So either wear a nude cami or wear a nude bra, if I'm daring enough.

My Tribe Burnout Lace Tunic - $15.xx + s/h

Likas Papaya Soap Result

I have this weird "spot" on my temple that really annoys me. I always have to put a lot of concealer to cover it up. It seems I inherited it from my mom, she has the same spot on her face, same location too.

In May, I bought a whitening cream from iHerb website.
I tried it out for 2 months, took before and after pictures.
In July, because I didn't see that much difference, decided to buy Likas Papaya Soap on eBay. I used it 1-2x a day in the morning and at night. I only apply it on the "spot" since I don't want to make my whole face lighter.

I took a picture again today. I'm amazed that it really works! The "spot" is almost disappear. ☺

I bought this dress on Hautelook a few weeks ago.
I generally wear size medium. After reading the reviews on AA site, I ordered a size large.
Well, the dress is hot and very tight fitting, just like modeled. Kinda feel like wearing a size small dress. I'm uncomfortable wearing such dress. It's flatters my love handles! :(
I wish it's a little bit loose. I hope I can stretch it out a little bit.

American Apparel Criss-Cross Dress - $27.95

I bought this last week when Express had the free shipping and extra 20% off deal. The sweater was on sale for $19.99. I always love this kind of top, with the uneven hem. Not long ago I bought a top with similar style (link).

Unfortunately, even though it's my regular size, it's kinda too big for me, it's like wearing a tent. Yah, I still like it, the material is nice and soft, and good thing I bought it for pretty cheap.

Express Shark Bite Sweater - $15.99

I broke my previous retractable powder brush! I didn't find one at the drugstores that fit my qualification. I wanted something small and compact. Most powder brushes are huge/fat, and expensive too.

I found this brush on eBay. The size is perfect and I like how it's flat, so it doesn't take so much space in my cosmetic bag. It works has a blush brush too. The hair is soft and I haven't noticed any shedding.

Retractable Powder Brush - $6.49

I forgot to show this poncho! I found it when I was cleaning up my room. LOL
My friend gave this to me for my very very belated birthday present (June) a few weeks ago.
She bought it at H&M for $19.95.
You can see the commercial here. My friend bought one too in that color.
I haven' t had the chance to wear it, since I don't know how to wear it.

On eBay, this poncho worth $80-$150!! Can you believe that? Well, I can't!!
I don't get why people would spend that much on this poncho!!

Man, I wish I could get my hands on a bunch of this poncho. I could buy myself a designer bag so easily. *sigh*
