Of Cute and Useful Things

I’m a sucker for cute things especially cute packaging. Over the years, I’ve been trying to nip that attitude just because I feel that sometimes I make impulse purchases that won’t be useful in the long run.

But I’m pretty happy with these purchases:

This Hello Kitty bowl is from mom. We got this at one of our former bazaars. I think it’s 150 pesos and it serves as my jewelry dish on my vanity.

Etude House Penguin Hand Lotion, by bitsandtreats

This Etude House Penguin is a hand lotion. I saw this at Sugar’s blog (where I find all my Etude House lemmings) and it took a while before I was able to buy them because at that time, they were not available at Etude House, Beauty by SM.

Love the smell. It’s like mild baby powder. The packaging also works because the cap doesn’t come off so it doesn’t spill.

I totally forgot the price but it’s affordable and worth it. I like this better than the first EH hand lotion that I bought.  It’s not sticky and gets absorbed by my skin fast. I also sometimes use this to soothe the dry skin on my legs, elbows and knees. One bottle will last you a long time.

Got any cute stuff that are worth a shoutout?
