Spices In DC

So last night I was in DC with my cousin and her bf to spend out labor day weekend - we decided to break our fast at this restaurant down in Connecticut Ave. called Spices I wish I had taken pictures of the food and place, but I guess we were too hungry, but overall the food is awesome esp. the Aged Tangerine Peel Beef - AWESOME!

Inside My Bag

So, I've been following this fashion website Fashionese Daily and decided to include their section of Inside my Bag on my own. Here goes:



The bag: Lucky Brand - white leather hobo bag

In the bag:
Light green Kenneth Cole wallet
Yellow Kenneth Cole coin purse
Kenneth Cole Sunglasses w/ pouch
Sony Ericsson G700 w/ black leather case
Keys
Travelers size Advil (in case for major headaches.. LOL)
Chapstick
MAC Lipstick - Hello Kitty Edition - Lustre Cute-ster
MAC Blot Powder Pressed in Medium Dark
Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy in Eucalyptus Spearmint :)(good after a stressful day)

So there you have it..

What defines a good moisturizer?

In the past year, I've been so loyal to Clinique face cream; that is for its Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief (for night) and Superdefense SPF 25 (for day). But recession kicks in, and let's be serious now, I can't spend $45 a pot for a moisturizer.





So, in recent weeks, I had been suggested by my aunt who's a dermatologist, to try out this Vichy Oligo 25 (the green one for normal - combination skin) for $26 a jar. I've been using it for a week and they're great. For a comparison with the Clinique creams I've used the Vichy have a very similar consistency, it smells good, and it sinks right in the skin, no greasy feeling. Though the instruction said it can be a good make up base, the only thing i wish they have an SPF version of this cream, wait, I think they do. But now I'm settling down with the Neutrogena Visibly Firm Face Lotion SPF 20 for $18.





So far, I'm pretty satisfied with the new adjustment - not too bad for half the price. :)

Cheers.
