Before the snow hit

This was before the snow hit Moscow.

The Louis Vuitton luggage exhibition in Red Square

Inside GUM, it was beautiful. Every shop has their own little christmas tree design.

H&M cosmetics find.

It has been awhile since I stepped into the shopping complex. Last weekend, I just found out H&M finally has a cosmetics corner.

Ofcourse I couldn't resist myself from picking up a few items

Picked up 2 duo lipgloss. I find these duo lipgloss interesting.
Also a nail polish and lipgloss set.

The nail polish and lipgloss set.

This is the perfect stocking stuffer. So far I have only seen it coming in two different colours. One is this light pink version, the other a deep pink version

The nail polish and its swatch.

The Lipgloss.
It is very glittery and sparkly.

Close up.

The duo lipglosses. I picked up both the red and the pink.

The packaging is very cute with the lace detail.

The two applicators of the lipgloss.

That is all I got from H&M

First impression : Lush Herbalism

I just finished my Lush Angels on Bare Skin facial wash.

So I went to Lush to get another facial wash since Angels on Bare Skin worked pretty well for me, it has managed to control the breakouts on my skin. 

After much thought, this time I am going to try out Herbalism.

Herbalism is made for problematic and oily skin.
Like its name, it smells pretty herbal but not offputting. Sometimes I don't even notice its scent.

I have been using it since last week, so far it has been keeping my skin under control. It hasn't made it better or my skin has been breaking out.
I am gonna to see how it cleanser works out.

Rostelecom Cup experience

During 22.11.2013 till 24.11.2013, I had the best 3 days of my life.
I went to the 6th Grand Prix of the 2013/2014 season which is Rostelecom Cup or more widely known as the Cup of Russia 

This time since Megasport complex is currently closed, the competition was held at the Luzhniki Minor Sports Arena 
I got pretty excited because it is my first time going for a figure skating competition. 
The banner outside the arena. Looks like Russian pair figure skaters Volozoshar/Trankov are their mascots.

The interior of the sports complex. 

The first day, just before the ladies short programme. The girls, Haruka Imai, Nikol Giosvani, Satoko Miyahara and Mirai Nagasu were having their 6 min warm up. 

The Kiss & Cry with Carolina Kostner and her coach.

German Pair skaters Savchenko/Szolkowy. 

Famed-coach Brian Orser who coached Kim Yuna to Gold in Vancouver Olympics 2010 at the boards looking over his student, Javier Fernandez of Spain. 

Japan's Machida Tatsuki after a beautiful short programme. Such a pity, just a 3T step out. 
Otherwise, beautiful performance by him.
