Anyone else awake at this ungodly hour for Kylie's Birthday Collection? 😐
4.00AM | Singapore time.
Let me come back to this space when I'm.. Actually awake. 🤕😴💤
4.15PM | In between places.
Okay okay okay! I'm traveling between both offices currently so I've about 20 mins?
Let's pick up from where I left off this morning. So, I'm mega zombie right now (duh), zonked. But it has been a fulfilling day thus far. 1 appointment, 2 cases, 1 approval, running misc errands now to avoid hiccups when I'm away..
4 more places to be before I can call it a day + 1 email to be sent out + 2 personal errands + é long awaited TGIF dinner.
1 collection appointment made for my EzBuy package tomorrow before my flight & whee! I'm pretty damn done! Efficient!
Oh not forgetting my Kylie purchases this morning 🙆🏻💁🏻 * Flip hair *
1. I FINALLY FINALLY got down to purchasing something, FINALLY figured out é processes (shipping etc), FINALLY sorted out what I wanted, FINALLY camped for the infamous launch.
2. That I even secured anything at all. It was all cray cray 🤕 But gotta maintain composure under all that adrenaline. 💪🏻
11.05PM | After Supper.
So I finished my "4 more places to be before I can call it a day + 1 email to be sent out + 2 personal errands + é long awaited TGIF dinner." 💪🏻
& more actually. Phew. Now I can say, I'm done for the day. 🤕
• Leo | Lip Kit
• Lord | Metal
• Poppin' | Gloss
• The Limited Edition Birthday Collection | Make Up Bag
This Kylie really knows brand marketing. 😥 On a practical note though, I'm not gonna wear Lord & Poppin' like any other day but the "Real Gold" & "Birthday" & "Limited Edition" hype really got to me. It's a pretty stunning shade I must say, shimmering gold dust & all, just not too wearable. Nevertheless, it brings me joy just owning it, 💓 all things pretty! 😱💕
Leo is a deep maroon brown that's not usually my color, & I haven't gotten anything remotely similar, but something about it took my breath away. I've a good feeling about this shade, and I cannot wait to put it on! Come to mama~!!! 💄
I think this will make an amazing Autumn / Winter choice, expect that, none of these seasons exist in Sunnypore 😭
& bcos é Birthday Collection was such a crazy launch, I separately carted some of her classics, & that meant double é shipping but, what to do!
I digress. I had a desktop screen on with a "Please wait while we process your order.." loading, a mobile browser with a second attempt to cart (in case the desktop crash on me, #kiasu), & another desktop browser just to look at other collections. Talk about overreacting. Oh & I had all my banking details & credit card out & ready to attack any queries!
I 💕 Kylie Cosmetics, & I was determined to do something about it.. Finally. 😂💪🏻
• Mary Jo K | Liquid Lipstick
• Candy K | Lip Kit
• Kourt K | Lip Kit
• Mary Jo K | Lip Liner
Thoughts. Mary Jo K seemed like the kind of cool tone red that will complement any skin tone, "whiten" teeth, and brighten up the face. I don't usually wear red, but when you come across a shade like that, you take it.
Candy K, besides Koko K & Posie K, has always been on my list. & since I can't get hold of the latter two, I carted it anyways. It's a hot favourite so that's always eggciting. 🙆🏻
& finally the goodies that slipped out of my hands..
I'm guessing she didn't even launch the bundle during the restock, it was immd OOS ugh 😕
If there was ONE thing I was there on the net at 4-effing-AM for, the bundle was it.
Also, I really wanted to try the cream eyeshadows, in particular the copper one cos it looks so bronze goddess ley! 🙁
& the minis, cos anything mini = CUTE!
#KylieCosmetics #Kylie #KylieJenner
Can't wait for them to arrive!
I think I might rethink my purchases, review if I should let any go, if I ever am guilt-ridden. 💸 Or if any of the shades strongly clashes with my skin tone. 勉强是没有幸福的.. 😅
Then…. This happened. Book hunting for tomorrow's trip.
I. Love. This. NLB.
Settled on this ✌🏻️.
Reading materials, checked!
This also happened!
I contemplated getting them done but figured I'm not going to try & look alive the next 5 days so I went for the shortcut, despite the additional expenses.
But wtheck! It's been years since the last lash extension, which left me feeling rather unimpressed. I decided to give it a go & see if anything has changed.
More on that next time! 👀 So far now I will say, I LOVE IT. 💕
Having Crayfish Salad & a cuppa Iced Lemon Ginger Tea w Honey @ TCC to wind down from a hectic two weeks.
#CarmenEatsClean took a break cos I was so tired & exhausted all the time my body really needed some nutrients.
I seek comfort in food. So I laxed a lil just to.. Stay alive.
I think it's important to challenge yourself, but to also know when to enjoy a cheeky reward.
So that was that this week. I had less healthy more tasty salads, I sneaked coffee here & there.. 👍🏻 & it's ok!

Lol for my own pleasure, looking at my list feels immensely satisfying.
Today has been one of the most productive days.
Although, I am beyond exhausted.
Maybe it's time to head home.
Agenda for tomorrow:
▫️Pack Luggage (NIL PROGRESS!!)
▫️EzBuy Parcel Collection (Yay! Yay! Yay!)
▫️Charge Electronics (Oh what will we do without them)
▫️Finish current book 😦
Anyone a list person?
As OCD as list making sounds, it ensures I'm on track with my errands & keeps me on top of things. I appreciate it more when I'm flustered & all over the place. I make lists for many, many things. Seems to be effective, for me at least! 👍🏻
2.23AM | Uh-oh.
Charging a million & one things all at once!
Tryna sort out the trip's itinerary so that I know what clothes to bring 🔫
Making a list (again) of things to bring.
Should stop Dayre-ing. Lol.
