Sunday Summary (Jan 15, 2012): This blog is a week old!

January 15, 2012
Happy Sunday everyone!  It has been a very eventful and productive week.  First of all, The Office Chic was officially launched last week on January 8, 2012 (yay).  I'm so excited to be back on blogging, and I can't wait to put more posts up on this blog!  But let's rewind and see what went up on this blog this week =).

OOTD: It's a Sunny Sunday
Since it was sunny out, I would do an OOTD of my Sunday casual wear.  It was my very first "shoot" for outfit of the day.  I made my boyfriend to take these outfit pictures for me, but it was so awkward!  I can't help but laugh during the shoot.  (read more about my Sunday OOTD here.)

It was fun, but weird!  I'm going to try it again today, since the weather looks kind of nice (at least there's sunlight).  So let's hope everything goes well and I could put more outfit and fashion posts up!

Best Fashion Finds of 2011
The fashion version of my Best of 2011 features a few of my favourite purchase during 2011.  These are probably my most-worn clothes lasy year besides my jammies and fleece pants LOL.  (read more about my favourite fashion finds of 2011 here.)

Speaking of clothes, I am trying to figure out how to use more current wardrobe more efficiently because it's been cluttering up.  My goal is to only buy key pieces that are timeless rather than filling it up with clothes that I don't touch often enough.  IMO, the item is worth its price if you get to wear as many times as you pay for it (so $1 each time!).  Is that weird?  LOL.

Trick his eyes with Dolly Wink No.4 Feminine Style Natural Half Lashes
This is a fashion AND beauty blog after all, what is it without some beauty products.  The Dolly Wink No. 4 Feminine Style Lashes have been my absolute favourite lashes.  They are corner lashes, supposedly, which is my go-to type because they are easier to wear.  Even though they are advertised/marketed as half lashes, I think they go pretty far in, but not so much so that it makes it hard to apply!  I love these because they are soft, natural, and still make a difference in how your eyes look.  My friend told me she thought they're real but they do look really lush and long =).  (read more about these lashes here)

Battle of the Brands: "Freedom" Palettes
I've done an in depth comparison of some of the freedom palettes available in the market - Unii Palette, Z-Palette, and MAC Palette.  Over half a year ago, I was debating about which palette to purchase, and I know how tough it is to make the choice. (I wished there were some comparison posts to help me make up my mind!)  Now that I have all three palettes, so I thought it might be helpful for some of you to see a breakdown of these palettes.  It's the first Battle of the Brands on this blog, and it seems like quite a few of you like this kind of posts.  (It's the most popular post this week!)  I'm already planning ahead and you'll sure see some other BotB on this blog!  (read the first BotB here)

Marcelle Annabelle Beauty Premiere: Spring 2012 Product Launch
I was invited to attend a product launch party by Marcelle and Annabelle back in November 2011.  I have posted a photo diary about that event.  And I thought I would also share with you guys what is coming out from Marcelle and Annabelle this year!  Highlights include, from Annabelle, a new line of lipgloss called Le Big Show.  As for Marcelle, I think it's huge for them this year because they are coming out with a quite a few brand new products!  There's a new line of anti-aging skincare and a new eye makeup remover that will nourish your lashes!.  Also new to Marcelle (and Canada) is their Canada's first BB Cream, which I am most excited about!  To read more about these (and more) new products, check this post out!
