Music Mondays: Icona Pop - I Love It
you want me down on earth
but i am up in space
Music Monday (Old School Cantopop Edition): Roman Tam (羅文) - 留給這世上我最愛的人
Some old school Cantopop for those of you whose parents like to kareoke at home. Haha
Similar to The Eagles, Simon and Garfunkle and James Taylor, 羅文’s music is definitly not in my generation but I did grow up listening to him since my mom is a Roman groupie. Love the meaningful lyrics and his soothing voice!
Anybody who saw the Academy Award winning movie, The Blind Side, will be happy to know that Michael Oher is now a Super Bowl champ!
Congrats to all the Ravens on the big win.
Beauty Diaries: July Favorites and birthday love!
Laura Mercier Luminous Primer
Sunglasses from H&M (Inspired by these)
Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara (sample size)
Shishedo Coal Black Eyeliner
Tiffany 1873 cuff (size small)
MAC Lipstick in Creme d’ Nude (because I realized that I didn’t have any nude lipsticks)
Some other products I’ve been using this month are: Bed Head TIGI Manipulator Shampoo that Rocks (because it smells like summer) and also American Crew Tea Tree Body Wash (and before anyone asks, yes, I am aware that it’s a men’s brand). I found that in the summertime when it’s really hot and sticky, it’s good to use a body wash that feels cool and surprisingly, I learned that most men products are pretty good at doing that. It also contains tea tree which is good for acne scars, discoloration and stretch marks.
I also ordered the tarte clean slate deluxe primer trio from Sephora, a Smashbox primer (the one that’s free with purchase of $35 or more) and Philosophy’s Hope in a Jar! Super excited to try them since they got pretty good reviews. This month is primer/bb cream month for me cause I don’t like having a lot of foundation on my face in the summer but I still want a nice oil-free matte face so if anyone has any oil controlling moisturizers/bbcream/primer suggestions, lemme know!
