This week’s Asian Beauty Blog Party blog post to is to show off our Vanity Tables. I don’t have a vanity table. Or desk. It doesn’t exist. I have many places where I have my skincare and makeup items, and they sprawl all over my home.. even in my car and at my office! It would span across space and time and multiple dimensions, it is that huge. I guess it is a transdimensional vanity table (channeling both Dr Who & Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy here) I will have links to all member’s posts at the end of mine 🙂
I decided to showcase some items that I don’t talk much about, since I have so much product. I will link the product names to where you can purchase them if you are interested in them. If you have any questions about any of the featured products in my Transdimensional Vanity Table, please ask me in the comments below ~ I will be happy to try and answer them.

You Smell Purdy I am a lover of oils and natural perfumes and scents. I have tons of them ~ Haus of Gloi is one of my favorite artisan crafted perfume brands ~ I toss my money at them every time they come out with a new release. I tend to lean towards citrus, spices, amber, musk, herbals and foodie scents, like coffee and chocolate.
As you can tell, these products are a mix of Western and Eastern brands ~ my makeup is primarily Western ~ I love the pigmentation from Western makeup and the colors work better for me. So while this is not all Asian beauty products, I find that I like the variety.
