A Belated Birthday Surprise...and another Rootote!!

I was on leave yesterday and couldn’t upload the pictures from my camera (left the cable in the office!), but once I did I just had to take pictures of this lovely envelope that arrived for me on Wednesday evening.

Aww…it was from none other than Connie, the lovely girl behind Skindeco. We’d (finally!) met face to face just over a week back, and next thing I knew, she was telling me to keep an eye out for something. By the way, she does incredibly detailed step-by-step makeup tutorials on her blog that never cease to amaze me…girl, I have no idea HOW you manage it!

There was a little parcel inside the envelope – she claims her drawing sucks, but hey, it was just so cute! :)

Her belated birthday surprise consisted of a tube of QV cream, some mineral eyeshadow samples as well as several samples of RMK. I haven’t had a chance to try out RMK yet, so I’m looking forward to it! Thanks again Connie!! *hugz*

Oh, and just an update – I was actually on leave yesterday to attend a Dior event in town. More news on that later, but after the event I also stopped by the Tiny Tapir store in Jalan Damai…and *cough* ended up getting myself another Rootote!

I picked up the Medium Plain – Urahairo which comes in a pale green. I love it because it’s made of this soft yet sturdy cotton material and has a slightly longer strap than the previous ‘Corner’ I picked up, which means I can easily sling it over my shoulder without getting my elbow stuck! :) I’ve also placed an advance order for the Koiai, which should be arriving soon. Tine, just so you know, YOU are the big culprit!! :D

First of all, aww that's so nice of Connie! QV's great stuff ;)

Secondly, fantastic right, the Roototes? Eh can trouble you to get for me ah? I don't want to pay $39 for mine when I can get it much cheaper in M'sia.

Thirdly, you still haven't received anything from me yet? I'm starting to worry if it's gotten lost in the post or something :(

You're most welcome! :D It was so great to finally meet you. Tine, you're next! I love the QV cream. I use it as a hand cream. Not sticky and oily but very moisturizing!

I seriously want a rootote! I'm browsing tiny tapir now. hehe.
