The mozzarella sticks didn’t turn out as pretty (my fault) but everything still tasted great! Even the melted mozzarella sticks. Feeling pretty smug about it… :)
Today I had a quick breakfast at La Madeleine’s and afterwards picked up the Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush. I bought that ambient powder a few weeks ago and still love it but my usual kabuki brush picks up way too much of the powder and I saw reviews saying this brush was really worth it if you use the powder. I have been using my Sephora 15% off for my recent purchases and it expires after this weekend so I wanted to get it while I could get the discount because it’s sorta frivolous feeling.
Received two free samples with my purchase. Neither of which I’ve ever tried before. The Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus eye cream and Josie Maran Argan Oil. Both of which I’ve heard great things. The argan oil I’m most cautious about though because my face and oil rarely play well together. Even if I just use it in my hair at the tips it could brush my face and maybe break me out. So I’m going to wait until after this upcoming wedding I have to go to is over before trying it out.
Lastly I received those organic cotton reusable facial pads I was tweeting about this weekend too.
Ordered these from an Etsy shop and started using them this morning. I think it would be nice to have something reusable as long as they work as well as disposable cotton. I just went through a lot of cotton every single day and yeah I feel guilty about that. These I can just wash with my normal laundry (in the small laundry bag they came with.) So here’s hoping they work as well! *fingers crossed*
Had enough of cherry blossoms yet? There’s another way to enjoy the cherry blossom season. My Beauty Diary’s Japanese Cherry Blossom Mask. I received these courtesy of Yesstyle a few weeks ago. Perfect for the season. This particular mask is for mostly for relaxing but offers some brightening and restoring elements as well. It contains aloe for moisturizing which I need as my dry winter skin makes the change into spring.
Brightening, Soothing and Regenerating
All skin types, especially dull and tired skin
I enjoyed this mask a lot. It has a sweet scent and it very soothing. It hasn’t caused any breakouts either and feels like a good “whenever” mask just for a relaxing moment.
