With Adam Comes Beauty: Part I

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the person who started or invented online shopping. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you. Special mention to Paypal, too.

I have been an occasional online shopper for the past few years, but I have not tried buying cosmetics online. Let alone, from brands with instructions that I can hardly read.

Since I can not stop myself from my current obsession with Japanese cosmetics, I searched and stumbled upon Musingsofamuse.com's entry about shopping for Japanese cosmetics. She mentioned, you guessed it, Adambeauty.com, as one of her recommendations.

So, for the past few weeks I have been lingering around Adambeauty.com. I've been trying to stop myself from buying anything online at this point because I am awaiting several pre-order purchases for Korean and Japanese cosmetics. But the shopaholic in me was unstoppable so I succumbed to its call.

Yes, I placed an order at Adambeauty.com.

But I did not spend more than $7.00.

I just wanted to satisfy my shopping pangs. I also wanted to make sure that it is safe from someone who lives in Manila, Philippines, to order from Adambeauty.com without using EMS.

Yes, I did not use EMS... hehe I know its a gamble but $7.00 was all that was left in my Paypal account. So, I had to make do with what I have.

What did I order? Lemme show you...




I bought a Kiss Me Softsense Jelly lip essence... hehe It was cute looking and cheap enough to gamble on.

Moving on, I chose to pay through Paypal and ship through Hong Kong Post Registered Mail. So I'm hoping it would arrive in less than two weeks. HOPEFULLY...

It is very easy to shop at Adambeauty because it is well organized and everything is explained to you before you do anything that is life altering. And it has a bit of everything.

So, until then, keep your fingers crossed for me, will ya?

hello sweetie! yes i made the cream myself. its very easy, just buy whipping cream from the supermarket and use a whisk [or electric whisk] to whip air into it until it becomes whipped cream like in my pic. u can add sugar whilst mixing for taste but dont add too much ^^ hope that helps

If there's one thing I'm gonna get done this year, that would be to get myself a PayPal account. Online shopping is so addictive.:(
