From LA

I almost forgot to post this.

This is one of my HAPPY pictures in LA. Nice sunny weather there made me smile a lot. 

I visited LA as my anniversary trip. It seems right choice since its's big city with warm/nice weather which I cannot have in Fort McMurray.

So we got our anniversary ring. I was totally fine with my rings, but my husband wasn't. Prongs for his diamond ring really bothered him when he washed his hair, that's what he said. So we decided to get anniversary rings, one without any stone. Simple titanium ring that is, and boy he is so happy.  

We also got new shoes. It's nothing fancy, but it was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo comfortable during our trip. Since we didn't rent a car, we walked a lot to get metro and bus. My fancy white-red sneaker was good for picture, but it made my feet tired. When I switched to new one, I instantly said It's heavenly!  Very light with nice cushion for more than 8 hours of walk a day.  It's amazing! I recommended this to every one who would like to walk a lot when they travel. 

My new wallet. I got my previous one in 2007 when I was new to Canada. I didn't care much about how-many-years-I-would-carry-the-coins. I had no plan to stay in Canada more than a year at that time. My old wallet looked great, but its snap button closure for coin is not helping me. It leaked coins many times. New one has zipper closure for coin which ensure me that I wouldn't need to dig my bag to find coins. 

I got them at Sephora. Nars Light Reflecting Powder is amazing one. Very light-weighted powder with not-significant shimmer that sets the make up without killing the light on my face. I really like the powder, and will review the item probably within a month. The Miracle Skin Transformer is a miracle for me now. This is the reason I was not in LOVE with the Nars Powder. It has silicone in it, so if you have allergy or you are on a "-cone diet", this is not for you. But if you don't care about the ingredient, do try some of their samples. It has the Soft-focused effect on my skin, and I can be naturally pretty without foundation/ tinted moisturizer. Detailed review will be posted later.      

I got these Banana Republic perfume W, and Wildbloom. 15ml package is not threatening my make up desk, nothing like my 100ml perfumes. 
First one would be my main/ signature fragrance. The box says A SHEER, REFRESHING FRAGRANCE FOR WOMEN. I guess I can spray this on every clothes I have for all the seasons other than winter. So I got Wildbloom for winter. The box says A WITTY BLEND OF SPARKLING FRUIT AND WATERY FLORALS. More feminine scent would be easier to wear with warm, knit shirts in winter.  

I also got MAC Satin Taupe, Mulch, Cranberry, Expensive Pink. I had long wishlist for months, but I googled swatches of these products for weeks and narrowed down to these four shades. Satin Taupe and Mulch joined my powerful kingdom of brown-eyeshadows, and feel safe there. Cranberry and Expensive Pink are relatively new shades and colour, because I didn't buy many non-brown coloured eye shadows for years. My first experience of non-brown eyeshadow was on my wedding day in 2012. Since then, I was thinking about getting some new shades, but that thinking took almost an year. Now I love them a lot, use them a lot. I apply two of them almost every day after trip/purchase. These would be the first to be review among products in this post.

Thanks for reading.
