The Weekend is for Spying - November 2018 Edition

Actually most pictures are from two weeks ago but here we go. From new Kam Man - Suhada Kinenbi (kind of means Bare Skin Anniversary) powder on the right (something like a really light powder to fake a no makeup look) that smells strong but nice. On the left there are two color changing lip balm. With the peach one already sold out. 
After buying three from Amazon prime. I found that Lao Gan Ma (Which really is China's national treasure) Black Bean chili sauce is only 2.25 at New Kam Man. Anyway, I got a huge zit from finishing a bottle in a week...Still worth it.
I found these Loreal colour riche shine lipsticks at CVS and the quality is surprisingly good!
Dove has a new cleanser, on my to try list (I still have too many lined up).
Muji is doing a flash sale on hand cream and the neroli one is really yummy. I have and love many of their skin care but never really reviewed any because they are so no-frill and effective (not a lot to write about).
While at muji, I bought a back up of this gathered skirt because I have one since August and it was great for running errands and work. Right now it's 30% off (additional 20% off for two clearance items) so I got this and a top almost half off. 
This linen cardigan is also from Muji and it was so popular that it didn't stay long on the shelves.  Anyway, the gingham dress was also a back up (yeah I get double for stuff I wear all the time) and clearance find from Urban Outfitters.
Nyx glitter glam eyeshadow. There is a silver taupe I really liked but I resisted.
Liniere has cute Moomin pouches but I have to remind myself I have way too many of them anyway.
Now it's getting cooler, I am going around looking for tea at TJmaxx. Their selection isn't as good nowadays but I impulse bought that Hyleys matcha and isn't bad at all!
So...Am I the only person who hates avocado with toast? (On the reflection is bag from Deluxe Food Market because that's what I do on weekend).
Issey Miyake dress - Love the color (of course out of my budget by a light year)
Dahing Florist at Chinatown had the cutest succulents (I got it for four bucks!) Two weeks later the arm all extended that it didn't grow up as cute. 
I am on a yarn destash right now and this is my newest make (it just found a new home today).
A huge passion fruit just because.
I had Totto ramen with friend...Food was good but line was too damn long (and the sign up sheet I wrote on disappeared so we waited extra 30mins). Should have gone to Chinatown instead. 
Potted rice from Pho Bang ($12 bucks and busy but no line everytime I went!)
Lastly, blue sky of New Jersey. That's all for "random pictures on my phone that didn't make it to Instagram". Until next time!


  1. I love Lao Gan Ma chili sauce with peanuts! So good! And try avocados on cranberry walnut toasts sprinkled with matcha salt :)

    1. I have been eating avocado with laoganma! I love avocado by itself, but hate it with bread or other starchy stuff.

      And it just occured to me this photo dump post is really scatter brained...

    2. LOL I enjoyed the post! The hat looks great! Love the checkered design.

  2. The Taiwanese Youtubers I follow love the L'Oreal shine lipsticks, one was like "it's so ugly but the quality is so good!" Lol

    1. haha it's not that ugly. I was surprised that the quality is kind of like YSL oil in rouge. If I get a coupon I will get a red one next time!

  3. I bought another dud- dior iconic waterproof mascara mascara. It's got to be the worst mascara ever. It's so wet and the ingredients on the package is not waterproof at all. I bought it because apparently miss Meghan markle wore it on her wedding day but I reckon it was the dior iconic overcurl waterproof mascara mascara which is heaps better. I highly doubt miss Meghan markle wore the dior iconic waterproof mascara mascara cause it's so wet it will smear everywhere n doesn't hold a curl. Dior mascara are crap, I pretty much tried them all. The only good is iconic overcurl waterproof mascara mascara.

    1. And also dior have been trying to target the younger market by bringing out newer trendier products, but they have also been cutting corners by reducing the quality. Perfume too they have reformulate and that dumb dior joy stolen from Jean patou joy.

    2. I actually like the youthful collection from Dior (the Swirly lip Glow out next year is totally on my to buy list) but I don't pay that much attention to the brand. I see cutting corners from lots of brands actually but they aren't the brands I usually buy from. I haven't worn mascara for so long, now I should start using them again!
