a roshbosh update

what I'm reading...

2 books. why? because one of them is too big to read in bed or standing in line.

"My Sister's Keeper" - Jodi Picoult
fiction - book jumps right in and each chapter is from a different point of view - even the fonts are different from character to character. I've been told I'll need a box of Kleenex towards the end - not looking forward to that. I have an ugly cry.

"Einstein - His Life and Universe" - Walter Isascson
(the fatty)
turns out there was so much more to him than E=mc^2 and messy hair - and this book covers all that other equally genius stuff.

what I'm listening to...
"4 in the morning" - Gwen Stefani
cannot get enough of it!

what I'm wishing for...

You go my Asian Sisters!

So I know it's been awhile since my last post. But I've been busy. Busy packing and organizing and thinking and moving and thinking some more. Anyway. I'm back now.

And I've got lots to write about it! But first things first. PRODUCT!!!

Juara is a great new skincare line I first read about last year. It was founded by 4 East Asian women who have taken modern skincare breakthroughs and merged them with traditional Indonesian rituals and ingredients.

I've been using the entire line but my favorites are the Rice Facial Scrub and the Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner. The rice scrub is gentle enough to use everyday - it removes make-up and exfoliates in one step! (I have since ditched the St. Ives Apricot Scrub.) And the toner has an extra dose of hyaluronic acid (great stuff if you have dry skin) so that those with oily skin don't have to use moisturizer!

I've used the moisturizer Sweet Black Tea and Rice Facial Moisturizer - great scent and great texture and feel. Not for those with really dry skin though. I don't need to use it because, hello oily skin! but I just love they was it smells so I use it anyway a couple of times a week.

lipstick kisses!
