NUXE Huile Prodigieuse®

I keep seeing and hearing great things about this NUXE product called Huile Prodigieuse or multi usage dry oil. It comes in 50ml or 100ml @$68 and 50ml or 100ml OR (gold shimmer) limited edition bottles @$88.

It contains natural plant extracts and vitamin E to restore and heal your skin, absorption is immediate so no oily residue or greasy feeling. You can use it as a hair treatment, face & body moisturizer, cuticle oil, bath oil, even for removing makeup! To all those pretty girls out there without any skincare products, this is a must have. 

The glass bottle is really pretty, the spray nozzle (100ml only) for easy application is well thought out. The scent is lovely, seriously, Nuxe launched Prodigieux le Parfum a perfume that captures the scent of Huile Prodigieuse.

 As for bug spray, anti-depressant and medicated oil, I did dab some onto my tummy-ache and it went away.

Lindemans Fruit Beers

Lindemans Fruit Beers available @, $6 per 250ml bottle. After trying a whole bunch of fruit beers, I like Lindemans best. It's not fruit juice and beer, nor cocktail mix. It's really fermented fruit made into a beer that tastes like itself. There is Kriek (cherry) and Framboise (raspberry) my 2 favorite fruit ingredients in the world.

Patriotic Angel Cross-Stitch

I had to use magnifying craft lens to sew this, first time. It wasn't just the 18 count Aida fabric with tiny squares for me to work with, it was also the dark navy blue background that made it hard to see.

Working with metallic thread again, this time around it was much easier coz there was less metallic bits to sew.

Gold Petite Angels always have some sort of embellishment, here it is metallic thread made into tassels and knots to create pop-up effects on the angel.

Nicole Miller Spring Summer 2015

Nicole Miller is inspired by Brazil this Spring/Summer and her clothes burst forth with exuberance.

It's young and fun, in either B&W or bright & fun prints.

I like that cross body top and matching skirt. Also the use of fruits in the prints is really cute.

Nicole Miller designs a regular collection for JC Penney simply called nicole.

Spotlight - buying textiles

I buy most of my craft stuff from Spotlight. It has a large selection of different items, including home decor and party items. As a VIP cardholder I get discounts regularly.

What's unique here are the aboriginal fabrics based on its native Australia (very limited selection) and the licensed kid's fabrics (Disney, The Hungry Caterpillar, Peter Rabbit, Star Wars, Hello Kitty, Marvel). The cheapest fabric here is cotton and the most expensive being sequinned chiffon. 

This place is fantastic for quilters, I have been tempted to make a licensed cartoon quilt that remains on my to-do list for now. To help beginners, there are pre-printed panels and baby quilts by the roll (just sew on binding).

There are even sewing classes held by independent teachers, enquire @ counter.

Olay Anti-Aging Skincare

A good tip for people with acne scars is to switch to anti-aging skincare. The healing & plumping properties that help lessen the appearance of wrinkles also help make acne scars less visible. No expensive dermatologists required, just a change in your skincare routine.

Coca Cola

Stock up on an iconic American drink for this weekend, there are no comparisons. It's the soft drink of choice for everyone and I always have it at home for that sugar blast when required ;)
