Yayy! It’s a day out with my girl friends ♥

At first, we were going out to look for some skincare products~ I was thinking of buying Kiss My Face products since it’s a safe one; but I couldn’t find the face cream that I wanted ><

On the way, I took some pics:

…see the mountain over there? nice view, isn’t it? :) we actually got lost…no, we got lost because my sense of direction is still sucks ><

…there. I was trying to zoom it in, but I didn’t realized that there was someone in front of me :P hahhaa

…we’re in a small park. I don’t know the name >< since I got lost (twice) I wasn’t planning to go to this place, so I don’t remember the name :P

but it’s a beautiful place, isn’t it?

this is in City Square Mall, Vancouver. It is an interesting place: the structure and the way the shopping places are grouped and placed~ love it! oh, and there’s a nice cream puff there as well ^^

After that, we went to Robson Street, still trying to find the skincare products that we needed. I actually found a pretty good one, but I haven’t checked whether it is safe or not – but it is paraben free. If it turned out to be safe and effective, I’ll write a post about it :) I’m trying the sample right now.

So, in Robson we went to this restaurant, I think it’s A Cafe. I tried to link it, but couldn’t find any site. It’s an asian restaurant, really good and good service as well. The place is really clean (including the bathroom).

Actually, today’s my friends birthday, gonna post her pic~

Look at the food~

looks good isn’t it? (I haven’t tried it though, but my friend said it was delicious :P)

yumm~ bubble tea <3 One of my favs. This place gave A LOT of pearls, I was suprised. See the pearls in the straw? I could get 3 to 4 pearls in one straw – made me so full >< but it was soooo good! loving the choco taro combination. If you haven’t tried it, you should!

Washroom :P …was so bored waiting on the line, so I took some pics hahhaa… look at that many stuffs i was holding! j/k it’s actually not that many, I just happened to take some out from my purse

After that, we went to a parfait bar

You gotta check this out; it’s one of the best dessert places ^^ they have foods other than desserts though (and my other girl friends were waiting here already)

Black sesame vanilla parfait

Strawberry crepe

Mushroom & Spinach crepe

That’s all for now! Hope you enjoy it ^^

Olive oil

This is a picture of an extra virgin olive oil.

We (or at least most of us) heard about this product health benefits.

Good for cooking and good for adding it straight into salad, meal, etc…

… Have you ever heard of olive oil as a make up remover?


Yes, for some of you that haven’t heard about it, it is TRUE.

And truly EFFECTIVE.


Not just for removing make up, but also dirt, etc.

So, is it exclusive to women? No.


Olive oil works its magic by breaking down the fats (i.e. oils) and other impurities in our skin.

Okay, here I am talking about face skin.


How’d u do that, then?


Simple.

See that? :)


Actually, there are many other simple ways, but personally, I prefer putting it in a small bottle spray and just spray it on a cotton pad whenever I need it.


For me, I use it everyday for my face skin.

I just clean off my face with that before I wash my face.


ALL make up, from powder, blush on, eyeshadow, etc. (even EYE LINER or EYE DEFINER) come off

and

I LOVE to leave it on my face for a while before I wash it off: I feel my skin becomes so smooth after that ^^



! Use the EXTRA virgin oil!

It’s better for you skin than the more processed one.


I do NOT guarantee that this will suit ALL skin types


My skin type is dry to combination; and I found this to be very excellent for my skin type.

NOT ONLY THAT, someone I know with a combination to oily skin used this and felt the benefits as well!

He even use this more than I do.


So, I think, just GIVE IT A TRY.


Do it just from cleaning face skin and wash it off right away until leaving it on your face for a while if it works for you. :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Enough about the face skin~~

let’s move on to the whole body skin – shall we? =)


Can olive oil be used for the whole body? Yes, it can.


If you google it, some people even find it to be very beneficial as moisturizer and massage oil.


Personally, it doesn’t really work for me as a moisturizer.

I don’t know why, but my skin is more “moisturized” with the regular cream.

But, yeah, again, GIVE IT A TRY.


However, I do NOT recommend this for outdoor usage.

Reasons: Oil + Heat (sunshine) = [burnt]



So, that’s it!

I just couldn’t tell how WONDERFUL olive oil is for my skin – I LOVE it so much!

And I hope it does wonders for your skin as well!

Have fun with it!

Feel free if you need further information :)
