Also, I'm both ecstatic and sad today. Hmm which should I share first? I think I'll go for the bad news first..
Here goes...Half of my pocketbooks/novels collection are destroyed by termites! Yes, you heard that right. TERMITES!!! I hate them huhu I bought a wooden bookshelf a year ago to house my big collection of books in my room (I want to organize them and keep them in good condition). I know I'm risking it because our house is really infested with termites already (our house is already 22 years old and 70% of it is made of wood) and buying a furniture made of wood is a bad idea BUT I fell in love with the shelf. I really love the design and that it was on sale the day I bought it was an added plus. But now, I'm regretting getting it coz I was unable to notice the infestation a lot earlier since it has a cover in front. I only noticed it when I returned a novel inside the shelf and I tried to get another book from the back portion of the shelf. I was so shocked that the termites was there and one of my hard-to-find hard bound novel was already eaten (20% of it) and majority of the novels at the back part are damaged (around 25-30 pieces) already...I actually cried that first night I found out about it..I am still on the process of saving the books and looking for a new container for them..I might go back to buying plastic containers again...I still can't let it go..I can't help but feel so sad that the books I bought and cherished are not in pristine conditions now...
Check out what is a termite here.
AND NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS ^_^
I want to inform you all that Venus and Mars Botanicals / Pure Glow is joining the Noel Bazaar at the World Trade Center this end of Novemeber. I will also be there on the 29th and 30th the whole day to help out Jamie (owner of V&M) in her booth. So I am inviting everyone to drop by and say hello. I would love to meet you all! And I will be very happy to assist you guys in choosing and testing out their beautiful products. Most of you already know that I'm an avid user of V&M products and I am so excited that they had already launched their own line of mineral makeup (Pure Glow). They contain very few but high grade ingredients so they are perfect for people like me with sensitive skin. I will give out an intensive review on each of the products once I have tried them for at least 2 weeks (I do get late reactions lately) so I can give out a good review for you guys.
