Happy New Year! ❤
This post idea came up last year when I posted my yearly favourite discoveries. I did discover some gems in 2017 but I thought it would be more useful for me to list out all my Holy Grail (HG) items instead.
I’m going to force myself to just name ONE item for each category. I feel like embarking on this project is like choosing a favourite child. I love you all equally! ❤ Continue reading
Here’s the 2nd part of my slacker Trash Stash:
Bath products are fun to photograph since they’re more colourful. 🙂
Since I skipped June’s Trash Stash, I’m breaking up this post into 2 parts instead of overwhelming you with a monster post. 😛 Here’s about half of what I used up in the past 2 months:
The first part will be solely focused on skincare and sample / travel sizes, and part 2 will be on the remaining beauty products.
No one gave me this challenge but I just decided to do it out of curiosity. Would using a mask every single day truly help my skin?
I focused on using single-use sheet or clay masks for the whole month of June. [warning: long post]
This month was the month of finishing up a lot of facial skincare:
I finished both my day and night creams, plus a bunch of other essential face product. So weird how that happens.
A couple of housecleaning items to kick off today’s post. First: May the Fourth be with you! 😀 And second: I seem to be in spam hell once again. I’ve left a bunch of comments yesterday on various blogs and they all disappeared. It’s so frustrating when that happens – can you please check your spam box?

Onward to my April Trash Stash! This month turned out to be ok for empties – I thought I’d have only a few to show but I am on an ambitious plan to clear out my cabinets of items that just aren’t working for me.
It was fairly well balanced in terms of skincare, body, hair and makeup stuff, actually.
I’m slowly climbing out of the mountain of boxes and bags containing beauty products from post-holiday clearance hauls. So begins Hauluary 2017. XD
First up, my Korean beauty hauls from 2 places: Holika Holika and Ibbi Beauty.
At the beginning of every month, I think to myself, “this month I probably won’t have too many empties, I might have 2 or 3 max”. Then around the third week of the month, I am suddenly faced with a bag full of empties. Go figure.
I finished some big containers too.
I skipped September Trash Stash due to post-vacation lethargy and the reevaluation of my life: Why am I not on vacation still? Why is anyone even interested in looking at my beauty empties? Why am I here? Then I snapped out of it and got back into the swing of things. 😛
As my punishment, I now have to root through 2 months’ worth of garbage. At least, I’m not like someone (I won’t say who) with 6 months’ worth of empties to post! 😮
I’d never heard of Jolse until I started blogging. Then I came across the amazing Fifty Shades of Snail blog, which showcases Asian skincare. She often talks about Jolse.com and then I started noticing other blogs mentioning the site so I decided to order a few things to test it out.
Jolse is a Korean beauty site that offers free shipping and credits for every order. I got $3 credit just for signing up, which I was able to apply toward my first order. There are often sales and special kit deals featured on the site.
