Hooray for pasalubong! 

My mom just got back from Macau for work and met up with my Aunt who lives in Guangzhou with her family.

Anyway, she got or rather my Aunt and my Grandmother got me some clothes and some beauty things as well, which is why I wanted to share it. I won't show the clothes anymore since I don't really post outfits here {yet}, so that leaves me with two things to show!

When I watched missglamorazzi's video on YouTube about an all-around salve for the body, I was so intrigued. Usually salves like those smell awful, medicine-like to be exact and always reminded me of clinics and the sick who visit there. But hers smelled good according to her, works absolutely like magic and in a cute little tin. I really appreciate the old-school packaging design of this product. And it does smell like roses. {I'm not in-love with the smell, since I'm not generally in-love with rose scents. I don't hate it though, I just don't appreciate it.} 

Ah the Pièce de résistance. I love this scent. Ever since my mom first used it waaayyy back when I was a lass. She always had a back-up of this {the toilette version though} in her dresser, and it smelled so refreshing. I loved smelling it whenever she put it on. Instant mood-booster whenever I'm in the room with her.

Interestingly enough, I found that as I grew older, my choice in perfumes had the essence of what most of her perfumes smelled like {she has more than one scent, as most ladies should }.

I like wearing scents with musk and I have others that have a clean citrus hint to them, and she does too. But I still have an affinity with food-like smells, like creams and chocolates, sweet smelling but not overly so. Which she never found appealing. Meh. Must be the age thing. Which is understandable since why would a career woman in her late 40's wear sugary-sweetness cum toothache-like scents. I mean, that's just bizarre.

Wouldn't you agree? Or is it just me?

Have a happy weekend!

Love the bandanna and booties+socks. What part of this outfit do you like?

This is the reason why I have been M.I.A. or as I like to call it internet-dead for the past couple of weeks, nay, more than a whole month actually {not counting the promo I recently posted. It was for a friend.}. Come to think of it, I haven't really been active in all the other social networking sites, much less my phone wherein which my usual recipients are inside my familial circle. I'm THAT disconnected to the outside world.

How this woeful incident came about I can only put blame on myself. Sigh. 'Tis too tragic a tale to recount for fear of unhappy emotions might again resurface.

PS. I like to talk {like in real life} like this, mixing up regular speech with pseudo-Shakespearean-era-like words when I like to dramatize certain events and make light of it in a way so I won't feel like sh*t. 

I do feel much better about this though...Probably because I'm getting a new laptop in the coming months. But for now, I'm settling in my old College netbook, which I've outgrown since I needed something more upscale for designing/video editing/web development.
PPS. I'm enjoying that little snippet of a GIF on my post. Please enjoy crying Patrick as well.
