Recent Loves: Hello Kitty Panties and Chanel Temporary Tattoos

The other week, I was strolling around in Kohl's and found a pair of Hello Kitty panties on sale. They were pretty cute and were the last one on the sale rack. AND, it was in my size! Later on in the week, when I put them on, I discovered just how CUTE they were.

The Hello Kitty panties (Bikini style) fit a little naughtier than the Victoria Secret cheeky style panty. Sorry... no pics. But, long story short, they make my butt look great, and are kind of fetish sexy being that they are hello kitty over your naughty parts. Honestly, the cut is awesome; it is very comfortable but is quite revealing at the same time. Immediately, after my husband remarked how oddly sexy these panties were, I went online and ordered 2 more at higher prices. My favorites are the Hello Kitty and Friends Pink Bikini Panty for women
and the Hello Kitty and Friends Blue & White Bikini Panty for women. And, when the arrived, they fit just as good as my original! yay!

You got to make sure that they are the Hello Kitty brand. Buying some knock off or other brand will not have the same cut.

The other thing that I really love right now is the Chanel temporary tattoos. I don't have any tattoos myself and have never really had the desire to get one. But, these stick on tattoos from Chanel are so gorgeous! So gorgeous, that I had to share...
Beautiful but too much tattoo for me...

I like how Angelababy (popular half Chinese model) only made a small but sexy tattoo

But, $75 for temporary tattoos (55 pieces in each package) is a little too much for me... I guess I still think that fake tattoos still come from quarter machines or bubblegum wrappers. :P You can get them HERE. I also hear that they tend to last quite a long time on the skin (hard to wash off) which is great considering how beautiful they are.

My First Dermatologist Visit and What I Learned

Last week, I went to the dermatologist for the very first time and wanted to share what I learned about anti-aging. As a teenager, I had HORRIBLE acne, but some Asian parents don't feel that bad skin is a medical situation.
Anyway, I figured that I'm getting older and that starting on a more serious skin regiment earlier rather than too late is always best. :)

My skin is in fairly good shape now. I have some slight discoloration on the sides of my face from acne and sun exposure, and also have the occasional break out. It would also be considered as oily.

So, my main concerns were acne and anti-aging.

For anti-aging, he told me there were three products that made a huge difference.
1. Sunscreen everyday- preferable 35 SPF or higher with Helioplex like Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock, SPF 45, 3 Ounces
2. Retin A- good for acne, glowing skin and anti- wrinkle

The sunscreen part is super easy because there a lot of options that you can pick up at the drugstore, and it's fairly inexpensive.
Retin-A is a bit harder to acquire; you have to have a prescription for it. But, if you do, I want to share a great coupon with you HERE. One of my co-workers told me she pays $120 after insurance pays part of it! That's a lot! With this manufacturer's coupon I showed her, she can get it for only $20! She had no idea. :D
The TNS Essential Serum was $250 if I bought it from the doctor's office. Needless to say, I didn't... You can get it at a deep discount -->SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum, but it's still pretty expensive. I think I'll wait until I'm a little older before I start spending that kind of money... but great reviews on the product!

The dermatologist also let me know that spending lots of money on facial cleanser is a waste. Facial cleansers are not as important as a good cream, serum or moisturizer.

Lastly, if you have dry skin on your body, look for lotions with the ingredient Urea in it or even Urea creams. It is the best at locking in moisture!
