April Favorites 2016

cat rice

1. Too Faced: Shadow Insurance 24 Hours

This product is literally an answer to my prayer. I ran out of my eye base a couple of months ago, and kept forgetting to get one until last weekend when I was shopping at Sephora and remembered to get one. Summer will be coming in less than a month (hopefully… it’s still cold in NYC,) a good eye base always comes in handy when eye make-up is part of your daily life like me 😉 I found this eye abase works incredibly well in warm weather as well as over a long day out. Like it says on the package it is 24+ hour  anti-crease!

2. Trussardi: Mini Backpack


I had been wanting a small backpack for quite some time, and had checked out a couple of options from a vintage Louis Vuitton to the newest Palm Spring backpack. Then I stumbled across this while dining at Trussardi Cafe in Milan. I fell in love with it right away as it’s super spacious given the size, and it’s just simple yet stylish. I have been using it non-stop as it goes with most of my day outfits. I have been on plant-base diet for a couple of months now, though I’m not a vegan yet, I really want to make this my last purchase of leather goods unless it’s vintage.

3. Cat Rice Molds


I got this while I visited home in Taiwan. My mom and I thought this was the most adorable rice mold. As you can see from my blog cover photo, the cat-shape rice came out successful. It is easy to use, and definitely adds a load of fun toward cooking. A perfect gift for catlovers.

4. Savini Tartufi Tuscany: Black Truffle Flavoured Olive Oil Dressing

olive oil

Got this truffle oil in Milan during my two-week Europe trip, I got it along with 2 other truffle sauces which I also love. This is one of the best truffle oil I have ever tried as the aroma is crisp but refined. I like to drizzle it onto my homemade vegan pizzas, risottos, pastas etc. It makes dishes taste like absolutely beyond gourmet!

5. Aveda: inner Light Mineral Loose Powder

setting powder

I tried to find a more natural and cruelty-free loose face powder after finishing my previous one which I thought I wouldn’t be able to live without. One of the best things that I like about this powder is that I haven’t experienced irritation or gotten acne after switching. My face also doesn’t get shiny and greasy. It does the same job as my previous beloved brand. I just wish the packaging was in glass.


Hope you like my April favorites! Until May 🙂
