Daiso Boxes to the Rescue!

Whoosh! *the image of Mighty Mouse pops into my head when I wrote the title for this blog post hee*

I'm not huge with nail polishes.  Well, I thought I wasn't.  Come on, my collection isn't that big.  I don't do my nails like every other day (truly, I salute them who does! I think they are really, really awesome) and I'm not that good when it comes to doing my nails.  So, it truly came as a surprise when I realised that my little box could no longer hold all my nails polishes *horror*

see the overflow.  They can't fit in anymore *frown*

I kinda forgot about it and I ended up just having nail polishes lying here and there for a few weeks after this photo was taken.  Then I find myself walking around One Utama one evening and saw Daiso.  Nope, still didn't register the need for a box.  I somehow could not resist popping into Daiso wherever they are because, aw.. they have so much goodies in there!  Heehee....

Anyway, as I was walking towards the payment counter, the variety of boxes and containers caught my eye.  I literally felt a lightbulb in my head lighted up as I remembered my nail polishes!  keke...

And so, I've settled for their  wide box No. 2.  It fits my nail polishes comfortably (right height for regular polishes) and its shape allows for easy storage.  For RM5, this is definitely a good buy =D

Happy International Women's Day

A big shout out to all you ladies!  Happy International Women's Day ya!

I'm reminded of this Proverbs in the Bible that talks about women:

Epilogue: The Wife of Noble Character

10 [b]A wife of noble character who can find?
    She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
    she provides food for her family
    and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
    out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
    and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
    she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
    where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
    and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Be blessed always and have a wonderful time!

Watsons Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Strips with Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera Extract

To be honest, I was a little hesitant to buy this item.  Maybe because it's under the Watsons brand.  Having a in-house brand items is something that's being practiced back in Australia wayyy back, but being back in Asia, there's this sense of hesitancy and reluctance to give it a try.  Nonetheless, I was a little desperate as I couldn't find any other brand besides Biore (doesn't really work for me), so I thought, oh well, what the heck.

When I opened it up, the first thing that hits me is that it doesn't have the creases in between to make way for the shape of the nose, not as what was in the picture.  It doesn't fair well for me because I find it hard to fit the shape of my nose without those creases here and there.

Secondly, it's thinner than the Charcoal one that I was using prior. It does feel a little weird due to the lack of crease and the thin texture.

Thirdly, when I brought it close to my nose to stick it, I was suddenly engulfed by this overpowering smell!  It's herb-like and it's very, very strong.  I reckon it might be the witch hazel smell.  Ergh... if you are sensitive to smell, please, stay away from this product.

In the midst of all these, I have to say that it works.  It really sticks to your nose, so you have to make sure it's position rightly because sticking, because it doesn't budge once you stick it in.  Also, because it's thinner than the usual strips, it dries rather quickly.  It's easily removable too, which I believe is because it's thin.  At the same time, it does clear my nose of the gunks!  Nope, no pictures of the gunk this time round.  I doubt you can see it clearly though.

Seriously, it's just the smell that turns me off.  Otherwise, I'd say this is a good buy.

Silkygirl Gentle Eye Make Up Remover

Another whim purchase that proves to be... a whim.

I got this during a visit to Watson.  These days, it's all about getting the essentials and as I was paying for the things that I bought, I paid more than RM20 and was eligible to make a purchase of items at a discounted rate.  As I was browsing the items, I noticed this Silkygirl Eye Make Up Remover and I remembered I was almost done with my L'oreal Eye Make Up Remover.  Hence, without thinking things through, I grabbed this.  I think it was one big bottle cum one small bottle for around RM16 (RP for both is about RM22, me thinks.  Please correct me if I am wrong).

Do I like it?  Well, in all honesty, it does it's job in removing eyeliners but not in the best way.  I tend to have to rub my eyelid quite a few times (I can't help comparing it with my Maybelline and L'oreal Eye Make Up Removers) before the liner comes off.  Mind you, it is Pencil eyeliner, granted it is waterproof.   Things aren't as good especially when I use a eyelid primers.  God forbid if I were to use primer with liquid/ gel eyeliner.  It's a mess!  Not only that, it doesn't do justice in removing my mascara.  I have to hold it against my eye for quite a while to remove them, and even after that, it's a slow rub to get the mascara off my lashes.  

I guess if you tend to use light make up, this might be the thing for you.  However, for the price, I think I might as well revert to either Maybelline or L'oreal Eye Make Up Removers.  

(Uh Oh, I just realise I've never blogged about the Maybelline and L'oreal Eye Make Up Removers!  I'll try to remedy this ASAP)

Change of Blog Address

Okay, I know this is abrupt, but I've been contemplating it for a bit.
 will be changing my blog address to  The reason for the change is that I find my old address is too long.  After playing with some names and etc, I've settled on for dailyfemme.

As I know some are still reading my current blog so, if you are, please note that I will be moving my blog over to in about a month's time.  After which, this current blog address will cease to exist.  I will be doing a full replacement instead of creating a new blog (blogger is good! I can just edit/ change my blog address instead of doing manual postings)

So, if you are seeing this post and don't want to miss out on future postings, do remember to bookmark the new blog address ya.

Thanks for being such wonderful readers of mine! lotsa love.  Hope you don't mind the change.

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF 50+ PA +++

On usual occasion, I wouldn't have purchase this because for one, it's moisture milk and given my combination skin, I do dread that it will get oilier.  However, this came with a package during a Groupon promotion by Sunplay.  I decided to make the purchase because it comes directly from Sunplay company.

Description from the bottle:
For Face and Body
Daily Use

New Solarex-3 technology provides a unique UV defense system that combines superior photostability, high moisture retention and anti-aging properties.

  • High SPF50+PA+++ provides long hours UVA & UVB protection
  • Super Hyaluronic Acid for long hours hydration
  • Collagen and Pro. Vitamin B5 to improve skin elasticity and helps to reduce fine lines
  • Waterproof
I would think that this product would be suitable for those who are dry skin.  With immediate application, I can feel that my skin is more supple.  It does dry to a little powdery feel, and it would work if you don't mind it.

However, for my skin, it's a no good.  My skin turns oily within 2-3 hours.  Also, my BB Cream slides within about 4 hours into the day, making my skin look a little patchy and oily at the same time *shudder*.  Nonetheless, I would have to say that the SPF50+PF+++ does work because when I'm under the sun, I do not feel like my skin is being burnt (it definitely does feel like it with the crazy burning weather these days).

I've actually stopped using it on my face and resort to use this on my body.  At least it works on my body and does not go to waste that way.

Etude House BR310 Nail Polish

Seriously, my random purchases are coming back.  I remember walking into Etude House, not exactly wanting to buy anything, but was just browsing when I saw some nail polishes!  Since there was a promotion taking place, I ended up with 3 nail polishes along with some other items (to be shared later).

Since it is still Chinese New Year, I decided to commemorate the celebration by painting my nails with a new colour (For Chinese New Year, we are deemed to have something new as a way to welcome the year ahead of us =D)

The one I'm sharing is Etude House BR310 Nail Polish.  Seriously, one thing that does annoy me is the fact that Etude House just uses code to label their nail polishes.  Given their cute image, it seems like such a contrast.

This colour, I believe, could be label as brown nude.  I like that it gives my nail a slightly posh look, without going over board.  It's subtle enough to look posh but yet, soft enough to look as though I'm not wearing anything.  It's good for me because my clothes tend to be colourful and hence, I really don't want to end up having clashes between my nails and my clothes.

In terms of application, it is quite easy.  I don't find it too streaky.  However, I realised that I have to keep stirring the bottle (so to speak) as it seems to thicken rather quickly.  I have to do my nails quick too because it dries fast and if it's not done nicely, it will dry to look chunky (if there's such a description).

For RM9.90 (with 50% discount), I guess one cannot complain too much.  Loving how it makes my fingers and toes look fairer though *wink*

Blessed Chinese New Year to everyone!

Time does fly pretty quick ya.  It's already February, and without noticing it, it's already Chinese New Year.  Woah....This marks the beginning of house visiting and angpao collecting (or angpao giving for those who are married :p ) and loads of Chinese New Year snacking along the way ....Oh, truly.... it's all those relatives visiting and loud chatter everywhere that's going to be fun, don't you think? I'm looking forward to catching up with friends too during this break.

Hope you'll have fun during this break and may this be a joyous celebration for all.
