Lunar New Year Odds & Ends Edition: Snow, Wedding & MakeupFreeek

This weekend, from left to right; top to bottom, I:

  • Went home to Philly for CNY and we finally got heavy snow for winter – I must admit it’s really beautiful to see everything blanketed with snow, but please take the winter chills away. =P
  • Always a joy to come home to mom’s homemade eggrolls – yum!
  • Rummaged through mom’s closet to look for my past wedding shoes for my sister and found my long-lost BCBG blazer! Was devastated that I lost it for few years now – thank goodness my blazer found its way home. ^_^
  • Shot wedding in Bensalem during the wintry mix for Saturday and could not get enough of this cute penguin cake topper!
  • Met up with fellow yt-er/blogger, Jerlyn from MakeupFreek on Sunday and she got me Maybelline’s Tattoo cream shadows in Asphalt as well as so many other goodies! We also stopped by Ulta and Rite-Aid to collect the rest of the tattoo shadows. Thanks girl, it was fun grabbing deals with ya! Definitely need to do this again. ^_^
  • Also was told by Jerlyn that CVS is having an awesome sale on L’oreal products, so I had to go over there and grab some more of the lip balms from last time. Currently all L’Oreal products are BOGO right now, so hurry if you haven’t gone yet!
  • Got this CVS cash card after purchasing $30 worth of selected products (L’Oreal was one of them) – love deals! Hopefully haul video to follow later this week!

Anyways, it’s Chinese (Lunar) New Year, so we’re welcoming the year of the Dragon for 2012. To all of you who celebrate, Xin Nian Kuai Le (新年快樂),or to those who speak teochew (潮州話) Singnin Kuailak, Gong Hay Fat Choy (恭喜發財), Chúc Mừng Năm Mới & Bonne Année!! Ok, I think I covered what I know – lol.

I remember as a child growing up always so happy to celebrate CNY, especially when we’re collecting lucky envelopes. My mom would usually keep them until I was old enough to keep them myself – lol. I don’t think I ever saw the ones my mom kept though. =P Now that I’m a married woman, I get to give each year – oh yay. =P Hope you’re celebrating this day with your loved ones and have a very prosperous dragon year! Happy Monday all!
