Vending machines to a new level!

I think the picture speaks for itself. WOW. can't get more efficient then this... this is a PROACTIV solutions vending machine. My jaw literally dropped when I saw this at the local mall. Japanese people love their vending machines! HOLY! I didn't know how to feel about this, I mean if you are a long time Proactiv customer this is super convenient way to replenish your products.....but if you are a curious potential customer, there isn't a specialist to assist you. I don't know if this is good or bad for business but it's definitely cost friendly. I just had to share this....random post!

Should I?

Alexander Wang, Diego Bucket Bag. I WANT IT! The bag has all my personality traits, simple as that. The leather is smoooth to the touch but it's tough and that's something I'd like to call myself. It has rocker studs that give the bag a bit of edge'n style and I'm trying to head that direction.
here's the big BUT, is it classic enough for me to invest? Tell me, would you?

the day I have been dreading......FIRST SIGNS OF AGING!

It took me A LOT, and I repeat A LOT of GUTS to post this picture of my naked EYE!

NO make-up with a monstrous wrinkle to share on the world wide web for everyone to see, hey if that`s not courage, what is?

I have been super bummed about this "fine line"......who are we kidding it's no longer FINE, it's anything BUT FINE and I am on a mission, I don't think I've ever channelled this much energy into just one problem (and I dun care how vain that makes me sound cause damn-it that wrinkle has taken OVER!)

so I dun gotta go get botox! aaacckk! 

This unfortunate event all started unravelling when I turned 25 last November, YES not too long ago. I gotta admit though I was a beauty adviser for 4 years, I didn't consistently apply eye cream everyday. REGRET can't even start to explain how regretful I feel. So when I got to Japan I bought myself an eye cream that was had great reviews by many Japanese magazines!....but 4 months later (NOW) NO CHANGE!

so to bad mouth this baby, I gotta stamp a giant FAIL!

this is the EPIC FAIL JILLSTUART brightening eye cream
approximately $65 Cdn, what a waste.

NOW for all you readers, tell me what EYE CREAM YOU USE and maybe your suggestion can be my next buy'n try 

I AM STARTING AN ONLINE JOURNEY to see IF there is an EYE CREAM that will eliminate (or lessen the appearance of THAT line) I will give regular visual updates on how my "FINE LINE" is doing!
SO PLEASE keep in touch!

Sometimes you just need to see it to believe it!

happy 4 year anniversary my darling BALENCIAGA

I gotta admit, It wasn't love at first sight, but it didn't take long for me to fall MADLY in love with you.....once you became mine, we were inseparable.
YES I am talking about my BALENCIAGA city bag.
I think my baby turned 4 this year and in honour of how amazing she has treated me I have decided to do a "what's in my purse?" post.
First I'd like to share my history with my dear purse. I've taken it with me around the world, well not really but enough places like L.A., Japan and even Mexico! It is the perfect size for almost any occasion and it has withstood unbearable heat, to blazing coldness and even rainfalls! It hasn't shown one bit of wear-and-tear! This purse is a survivor and it actually still looks pretty new to this blue is just as royal as the day I got it. Ladies, I think EVERY girl should have a BALENCIAGA is durable, fashionable without it being too flashy or pretentious! It can be paired with a casual look or even a dressy one! This bag is why the word investment was made...well that's a bit extreme but still, it should at least be ONE of the reasons!

ANYWAYS! I could go on's the sales-associate in me........but back to the "what's inside my purse" tag! I think a girl's purse can say a great deal about them, that being said; here is ME<3

starting from the left:

  • I-Pod NANO life is one grand sweet song, so start the music!
  • Prada Wallet - I gotta keep enough lettuce to support my shoe fetish <3
  • Louie bus pass holder - to get from A to B
  • Minimouse make-up pouch that has:

    shiseido compact powder foundation
    - amazing coverage without the cakiness~!
    YSL touche eclat - need I say more?
    MAC liquid last liner - it withstands hot joke~!
    Dior Addict highshine lipstick - kiss of pink
    Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on eyepencil in "stash" (a.k.a olive green) - Urban decay pencil liners are the best hands down! they last forever and come in such a wide range of colors!
    eye drops - grr dry contactsss
    bath and body works sanitizer - to keep the germies away
  • 2012 new and improved Agenda - memory is not my strong suit, gotta jot dat sh$*t down!
  • my small pencil case - to make the above happen.
  • Jill Stuart Hand Cream - smelling delicious doesn't hurt ! 
thanks for reading! Now tell me what is in YOUR purse!
