$5 Off for L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara

This reminds me of Blinc's Kiss Me Mascara, where tubes are formed around your lashes so that you won't get any raccoon eyes, only cheaper. With $5 off by entering the Reference Code W9KW, it becomes even more inexpensive. Totally MY style ;)

A Valentine's Dinner that's Affordable??

As some of you may already know....Winterlicious ends on Feb.12 this year. Don't fret though, cos I received an email from Allusion Restaurant showing me their affordable Valentine's day menu, as I have been there a few times and signed up to be on their mailing list. I would do a review...but I didn't take any pics the last few times I ate there.

Anyways, I really like the restaurant. The ambiance is great, the staff provide great service...and of course, one of the most important things for me is that you get great food at a great price. This combination is hard to find uptown. They also have live music every Saturday night.

The location is a little 'off' as it is at a strip plaza surrounded by Chinese dim sum shops and noodle many of the people who visit that plaza may not be interested in checking Allusion out.

I'm feeling the love I would like to share the menu with readers and hope that Allusion doesn't mind me posting it here.

FOR SALE: Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer

I'm having my first sale!

I have CDP concealers up for sale. They are NWOB (new without box) and in the packaging/case (shown above) as the line has since revamped their packaging. Colours available are Beige and Ocher.

To determine your best match, see below for MAC foundation matches:
Beige: suits fairer skintones NC-20 to NC-30
Ocher: suite medium skin with yellow undertones, NC-30 or darker

It depends if you use it for under your eyes (go lighter) or facial blemishes. I have fair Asian skin and I use Beige mostly since I mainly use it for dark circles. Ocher matches me perfectly for facial skin imperfections, and in the summer when I am slightly tanned.

You can read reviews on this concealer on or just google for plenty of info/reviews.

I'm selling them for $50 CAD each. Meet up/pick up only in the GTA.
However, if you're not located in Toronto but still want to purchase, give me a shout! I'll try to work things out.

I'm disabling comments, so please email me instead at if interested.

I will be posting more pictures shortly to show the products in better detail.
