Spring Haul

Hi Everyone!

I have a quick haul post for you all.  I acquired these throughout January, February and March this year from Sephora and Jurlique.  Sorry that these photos are a bit dark.  The living room lights are more of a mood setter than something you can read a book (or take pictures) by.

First up, is Mr. P's haul.
Mr. P was running out of cologne so I picked him up some new ones.  His favorite here is Bvlgari Aqua Marine.  He tried out the 212MEN by Caroline Herrera, but it's not really his style.  It's different from his usual light and crispy scent.

 Next up, my hauls!

I had to restock on my Jurlique products.  Jurlique has this awesome deal where you can get free shipping on orders over $50 and you get to pick out 2 free samples of their other products in addition to receiving a third non-optional sample.  Sounds a little like Sephora's deals, right?  I got lucky and landed a code for a larger sample of their Brightening Serum.  I haven't used it.  I guess I'm saving the samples to use when I travel.

I picked up some more Wen Cleansing Conditioners.  I really really love what they've done to my hair.  They've restored my hair to what I deem pre-adolescent condition.  The only thing I don't like right now is the smell of the Fig cleansing conditioner.  It smells like cherry Halls cough drop.  But it works so I'm not going to stop using it.

I also picked up more Bio-Oil, which I love to use on my face and body post-shower.

So, I thought I'd let you know what I've been up to, why there's been a complete lack of postings.  It wasn't that I was tired of posting or anything like that.  I feel that my blog and my nascent website keep me sane.  The reason is that I didn't have time to post.  Mr. P and I became first time home owners and were busy moving from our apartment to the house.  We're really excited with our house.  It does come with its own set of challenges, but it's a small price to pay for our autonomy.  We spent February overseeing the upgrades to our electrical panel and the complete renovation of our backyard.  And we spent March moving from one place to the other.  Who knew we had so much stuff crammed into a tiny 1 bedroom apartment?!

Add to that, Mr. P and I are finally tying the knot in a few days.  We're getting married in our backyard with family and a few close friends in attendance.  Because we only began planning for it 2 weeks in advance of our wedding date, it's become more of a backyard bbq with a bonus wedding, rather than a wedding and reception.  It's okay though because it's the wedding we wanted ever since we realized we'd be owning the venue.  I'm also ok with a simpler event because I get really uncomfortable when I'm the center of attention.  Also, we have to go back to Taiwan again in a few months to get married there.  I think with the number of family there who will be involved with the planning process, I won't be able to get away with something as laid back as this one will be.

That's it for this post.  I'll see you all later!  Have a great Easter!

Yeah, there are many good products from them to try. I would go with the brightening serum first. It seems really nice. :-)
