Reusing my Clarisonic Mia 2

I'm trying to reuse some of my old beauty stuff that I have purchased in the past and posted about this several times.  There was a brief time I stopped using my Clarisonic Mia 2.  I don't know why I have stopped using it.  I stopped using it because my older pink one was dying on me and I'm glad that Clarisonic was kindly enough to resend me another one under my warranty.  This time I got the color Lavender.  I notice that my face gets extremely dry during this winter that leaves dry patches on my face.  After a few usage of the Clarisonic, my face has restored. My face seems smoother, more hydrated and no more trails of dry flaky patches.  So far I've been pretty good making usage of my Clarisonic, but I don't over excessively use it every day.

What I like using the Clarisonic Mia 2:
• The brush is really gentle to use, that doesn't require any hard scrubbing.
• The Clarisonic Mia 2 have a time sensor to move to another area on your face.
• Helps me battle my dry skin, leaving my face more smooth and hydrated.

Have you tried the Clarisonic and what's your thought on this?

Toy Fair 2017

This is my first time invited to Toy Fair, it was fun and engaging.  Toy Fair is an annual event that is exclusively open to buyers and press only.  Buyers and the press gets a glimpse what new toys are coming out to the market of this year.  I got the opportunity to see and try their new lines of toys. Just looking at these new toys, I wish I could be a kid again. All of these toys are so unique and pretty. There were many vendors that specialize their own line of toys. 

I got the opportunity to see some of the Calico Critters that my daughter used to play with. This toy line got her engaged many hours when she was younger. These are furry creature animals that live in their own animal-friendly town.  Pics show below Elephant family having a tea party. How cute is that? 

I'm really glad I had the chance to attend this event and scored a few freebies at this event.  Hope to have many more events to go to in the near future.

Louie and Chan

It's always rewarding to have someone to watch our kids for even an hour so that my husband and I can try a new place. This time we ventured out to a new place called Louie and Chan located in the Lower East Side of New York City. Louie and Chan is a cozy Italian place that serves pastas and pizzas. The ambience of this restaurant is small, dimly lit and cozy at the same time, which is perfect to celebrate Valentine's Day. After my Italy trip, I'm obsessed and love my pastas to fill my happy tummy.  I read some reviews that Louie and Chan is considered a Michelin Guide restaurant recommended and finally, I'm happy to have tried this place.

MARROW Savory Gianduja crusted bone marrow, chile & white balsamic jam, Himalayan sea salt, torn bread

We first ordered the Marrow appetizer, the bone marrow was filled with delicious fats topping off with slices of torn bread with a white balsamic jam and Himalyan Sea Salt.  Every bite of this was savory and tangy at the same time.  This is a highly recommend appetizer to start out with.  Then my husband and I shared this TAGLIATA DI MANZO Sirloin Steak and Pasta dish.  The Sirloin Steak was cooked medium rare and topped off with fresh cherry tomatoes, basils, parsley, and celeries.  Each bite was so fresh and refreshing, I could taste the freshness of the herbs making it satisfying to my mouth.  We ordered the Cacio E Pepe Spaghetti, butter, pepper, Parmigiano, Percorino Romano Garlic, it was a nice and simple pasta dish that complimented well with the steak dish I ordered.

TAGLIATA DI MANZO 10oz Black Angus sirloin steak, tomato/celery insalata
CACIO E PEPE - Spaghetti, butter, pepper, Parmigiano, Pecorino Romano, garlic

I highly recommend this place and they do accept reservation.  My husband and I walked in and there was no wait time at all typically because it was on a cold day.  Service was very nice and the food was served instantly fast.

Les Néréides

Sometimes you just need to spoil yourself and that's what I did. I realized that I need to start wearing more accessories with my outfits of the day. Without any accessories, it makes the outfit looks a bit dull. When it comes to jewelry I don't have any taste. I have no clue what I wanted, so I went on a shopping adventure and looked around online until I stumbled this brand called Les Néréides . Les Néréides is a Paris brand and that they handcraft their jewelry pieces making it whimsical and  unique at the same time.  I wanted something simple and that I can pair with many of my outfits. I ordered this piece called SINGULAR ROCKS GOLDEN CUBES AND BLACK STONE WITH CRYSTAL AND PEARLS SHORT NECKLACE. I'm just in awe with this jewelry piece, it's stunning and beautiful at the same time that shows so much fine details.  I hope I will have many more opportunity to start my jewelry collection with this brand. I have mentioned this in my prior Christmas Wishlist post and I thought it'll be a great way to shop for yourself even on Valentine's Day.   

What kind of Jewelry pieces do you tend to shop for?
