Hello again~ back with a new swap haul!

hello ladies! Today, my family and I went to the New York Botanical Gardens. I had a pretty good time (excluding the burning sun and the fact that we got lost!) looking at flowers and stuff. Personally, I love flowers, and I also love to garden. I have my own small little garden in my backyard that is growing nicely. I also bought a baby cactus!

Isn't it cute?! Well, I mean I think that it's pretty cute. I need to move it into a larger pot later so it can grow.

My favorite flowers there:

The one on the left is a hybrid oriental lily and the one of the right is a hibiscus flower. How nice eh?

A swap haul came in today. The emory board was something I bought for 99 cents at Rite Aid, the nivea soap and boss hugo perfume sample was something I ordered. sorry, but not swatches today of the eyeshadow! my camera is sucking real bad today, so yeah. The LA colors palatte I'm pretty happy with. I mean it's a low end product so the pigmentation could be stronger. It kinda smells like baby powder too, but the colors are pretty and I'm excited to play with this.

Nice palette :)! Hopefully it's pigmented...It has very pretty colours :D.

Thanks for reading Cris! I find that the palette is pretty decent over a good base like NYX jumbo pencils.

Really? I read that the pencils tend to crease :(. But I'm glad they work for you :).

About the perfume samples, I hated L.A.M.B. but love MaDame :D (will be getting a full bottle when I see the Limited Edition one :-P), so I guess I'm the opposite to you, lol.
It's funny 'cause several reviews of MaDame consider it too strong for a day fragrance, but I don't see that at all! But I'm the girl who wears red eye shadow regularly, so I don't suppose my opinion counts ;D.

to Cris: LOLOLOLOLOL hahaha. If the fragrance works for you, then I'm happy! I put Lumene eye base underneath the NYX jumbo pencils. With a good base, those pencils are good to go!

To Thiamere: I love catcuses! They are so low maintence. I just tried out the LA palette. Actually, over a good base, they're really good!
