January Life Update

 Hey everyone! I've been in Michigan visiting my family for the past few weeks.
It's very chilly here! It's currently 3 degrees outside and snowing. My sister was supposed to fly back to Boston today (MLK Monday), but her flight got canceled and she won't be able to fly out until Wednesday. We're experience what has been nicknamed on the news as an "Arctic Blast." At least we get to spend another two days with her. :) Julia and I have been spending time catching up with our cousins and Michigan relatives. We went to see Silver Linings Playbook last week and it was a really good romance-comedy-drama. Julia and I love Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence! They're both amazing actors.

It's incredibly wonderful to be home and taken care of by my family. I really wished I live closer to my parents and family. My Mom and Aunt are such amazing cooks! I feel so spoiled when I'm home. 
My Mom and Aunt are constantly competing to out do one another with their Vietnamese cuisine. I'm always stuck in the middle! The good news is I've been learning how to cook some more Vietnamese dishes. :)

My sweet friend Jedy sent me a really sweet care package and I wanted to share some of her favorite things with you.
 She sent me so many sheet masks which is perfect for cold weather. I do what I can to keep my skin hydrated in freezing Michigan!
 How cute is the Hello panda stamp? I love little details. :) Thanks Jedy!
 She sent me the cutest card with the Korean traditional dress, Hanbok. : )
 She knows me so well! She sent me my favorites Essie Turquoise & Caicos, Mint Candy Apple.
The pink is Mod Squad which I adore!
 Beauty products to share on my beauty blog!
She didn't send me one, she sent me two hand creams. :)
 Jedy said the Milk Hand Cream is one of her favorites. I keep it with me in my bag. :)
The blue jeweled bottled is makeup remover by Estee Lauder. I love how the light shines through the bottle.
 I can't wait to try all of my new Bobbi Brown lipglosses!
 Whitening and brightening masks are great for evening out your skin tone. I have yet to try this one, but I did try the sheet mask in the red packet.
 I tried out this moisturizing & hydrating mask the other morning and I really liked it. I needed some extra help to keep my skin from drying out in this brisk Michigan atmosphere.
 These two adorable packets are tissue paper, perfect to keep in the car!
 The packaging of these sheet masks are super cute! I can't wait to try them. The hard part will be deciding which one to use first!
Thank you for the treasures Jedy! ^_^
