Cosmetic sunscreen

I got a sample of this using 100 beauty insider points from Sephora.
benefit The Big Easy Liquid To Powder SPF 35 Foundation. Generally, the texture of face products with SPF isn't great in that they're slimy feeling. However the dry-touch finish in this one tries to counteract it. A thoughtful additive that I can appreciate. Matte SPF, imagine that.

The latest fad in home stuffs

Apparently: A bath mat in 100% linen absorbs better and dries faster than any natural material. Linen is a naturally bacteria-resistant material. And the coarse texture is suppose to gently exfoliate your feet.
At 2,800 yen it better be amazing.

Jouviance gave me a few items from their line of summery coral colored makeup. This French Canadian company gives a great overall first impression. Don't you just love products that lives in good containers? The metal lipstick case closes with a magnetic click. The product itself is a peachy neutral:

Frankly, not enough color pay-off for my taste. I do see it being universally easily wearable due to its balm-y texture.

Can't have it all

I've seen these Cariloha bamboo bed linens heavily promoted and am mighty curious about them! 
I tried for a bit to win the $199 sheet set but it was pretty much futile. Sigh, such a calming hue.

Let me take a selfie

You might be wondering why some of my photographs are extraordinarily grainy. The reason is because I'm lazy. The easiest thing I have around that can both snap a photo and upload it quickly without using data or any cables is my Samsung Galaxy tablet. 

Samsung's always had the reputation of style over function. That doesn't deter me, I have plenty of Samsung gadgets! For my level of techy, ease of use and prettiness of the gadget beats hardcore specs. I do wish the camera adjusts to different light conditions better tho!
