Traffic on Sat. night~ again!

I don't mind traffic when expected, but on a Saturday night, midnight?! Come on! Just my luck... every time when I am exhausted and want to get home in a jiffy, I always end up in a jam. It took forever! The I-10 has been worked on for quite a while now. When will it end?! I hate getting on the I-10 now, both east-bound and west-bound!!

Traffic came to a stand still past midnight!!

So glad when traffic finally eased up!! Cool lights! I just love taking photos while driving (but of course I am very careful). Love the look of lights with longer exposure and the wiggles of the lighting on the images. You never know what you will get!

A Corvette swooshed right past me!!

Do we look alike?

I've been told by some that I look like a cat. So... do I look like MK or MK looks like me? Haha....

Garnier Skin Renew~ Anti-Puff Eye Roller

Garnier claims that rolling this underneath your eyes will diminish puffiness and dark circles and give you brighter, more radiant eyes. Unfortunately, it did nothing for me. Instead, it made the skin under my eyes dryer and sticky. The concept is great, however the ingredient did not seem to agree with me. I did like how the metal roller felt against my skin, but other than that, this thing is good for nothing and was a complete waste of money. Cucumber slices probably works way better.

Would not buy again.

Very Couture Knitting...

Two lovely Knitting books on my wish list. The patterns are so chic in them!!

Borrowed from the local library...

Up & Up Eye Make Up Remover (Target Brand)

This is a cheap imitation by Up & Up ~ a Target Brand of Clinique's "Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips". Though it's very inexpensive, I would not purchase this again after finishing this bottle.

The liquid is similar to Clinique's. You have to shake it up to mix the oily part with the watery part before use. I find that I'd have to use a lot of it in comparison to Clinique's TTDO one. It is a little greasy which does not bother me since I'd wash off my entire face with facial cleanser any way. But, it does make my eyelids red and irritated, kind of stings a bit. Somehow, it does not break down my waterproof eye makeup that easily. They come off in clumps, unlike Clinique's which just melts it away.

I guess it is true that you get what you pay for. $4.50 per bottle vs. $17.50 for Clinique's Take The Day Off.

$4.50 @ Target. Would not buy again.

Serious Skin Care A Wash - A Defiance

I've tried many things from SSC in the past and most of their skin care items are okay. But this facial wash made me break out! I had this bottle for some time now and it's still pretty full. So, the other night I decided to use it again and I broke out the next day!

The liquid is very thin which doesn't bother me, if it did the job. Unfortunately, it's a terrible product that reminds me of dish detergent. After washing my face, my entire face felt tight and dry. Now I remember why I left it alone unused for some time. The Philosophy still has the best cleanser in my book. I guess I'll use it to wash my feet or something. I would not purchase this again. Thumbs down.

From HSN, 16 oz, $49.95!
