For my 22nd birthday this year, my Mama surprised me with a pretty impromptu trip back to Hong Kong that I'm sure you'll be hearing plenty about over the next few days. I have so much to share with you after my week's break from the Internet! I want to try and compile a photo diary of sorts, but I mostly spent my holiday at our flat, hanging out in our ~hometown and eating a lot, so we shall see...! For now, you might want a sneak preview of some of the things I bought on my whistlestop stay. Enter the first ever Daisybutter haul~ post...

I adore this Missha BB cream. The Perfect Cover cream in 21 is my holy grail face product, giving a light to medium dewy finish.

Finally got my hands on some of the Majolica Majorca mascaras. I'm thinking of writing a guide to mascaras for Asian lashes soon. (:

Bought this Lucido-L Styling Milk on a whim. Hoping it'll help to hold a curl in my hair for once.

The Saem's Gem Miracle Diamond toner essence. So silky smooth on application. I likey, and apparently this is what IU uses before going on stage...

Standard Michelle clothes. Soon to be seen in outfit posts in more detail, no doubt! Maybe I'll compose a shopping destinations guide on Aesthetic Online, if you're interested?

A little faux Marc by Marc Jacobs. Watch this space, pretty little readers...

New issue of Vivi magazine for £2 instead of £14. Love life. My evening reading and style inspiration go-to.

... and some more skincare goodness by The Saem.

I think it's pretty safe to say that I never ever, ever 'need' to go shopping again. Forgive me Blogland, for I have sinned. As I mentioned earlier, keep your eyes peeled for some future outfit posts as soon as I have enough time to shoot outfit photos. (Or as soon as the snow decides to return to wherever it came from.) If you'd like reviews on any of the beauty products, let me know and I'll try to remember to note some thoughts down for you! Keep warm pretties -- Merry Christmas March!

  3. Never-ending jealousy until I finally get to go back there. None of my friends understand the obsession with HK!! Love all the cat stuff featured and that scalloped coat is definitely very 'you'. I'm interested in a shopping destination guide; it'd be good to see if there's any hidden gem type places I don't know about! Thanks for your comment btw haha, all out of oil to add though. I'm ready for an Easter break!

    1. Haha same same, I'm already starting to sketch out plans to go back in the summer sometime. My cousin is getting married in Malaysia so it'd make sense to make a pitstop of sorts in HK! Thanks Jade, will be adding to my guide later this week. (: x

  6. Amazing - I had some of the Lucido stuff for when I just permed my hair, I think they make some good products! Also the Majolica Majorca mascaras are my fave - the dejuvu fiberwig is also really good. Loving your purchases Mish!

    1. I always find such cute phone cases online but shipping is so expensive... and phone cases aren't as big a 'thing' here as they are in HK!
