Reading in Style & at Ease with Great Point Pocket Magnifier with LED Light

Great Point Pocket Magnifier with LED Light in Bubblegum PinkFirst of all, please check out to see how you can help Typhoon Ondoy victims that wrought the wrath of nature in the Philippines last weekend, killing hundreds of people and leaving thousands homeless.

A tiny contraption like this comes as a great companion-slash-accessory especially for those who are having a hard time reading small texts, particularly in dim-lit rooms and candlelit restos. I got this Pocket Magnifier from Great Point while checking some reads in Fully Booked. I thought of making a purchase,Β  since it comes with a bright LED light, so I can simply sneak at night leafing my current read. It was kinda sad that they ran out of colors available, leaving me with only blueberry & bubblegum to choose from. And so, chose the pink one (picture shown on the left). πŸ˜‰

It really looks glam, so using flaunting it in public won’t be quite a problem (on the tacky/nerd scale)! Best of all, it’s really lightweight and fits right into your purse or pocket, measuring only around 4 1/2 x 2 inches (est) and just 1 centimeter thick. It can magnify up to three times, while the LED light is powerful enough to give you a pleasant sight even at the darkest places. I tested it with lights off, and it worked just fine. I could even use it as a flashlight! πŸ˜›

To use: Just slide open to activate LED light and start magnifying. It will provide 30 hours of light on two replaceable CR1130 lithium batteries (which areΒ  included).

Agyness Deyn for Anna Sui Moisture Rich Foundation

Agyness Deyn for Anna Sui Moisture Rich FoundationAnna Sui caught my attention with its latest TVC starring this ever stunning British model (and singer, yes) Agyness Deyn. I have been seeing the ads for a time on cable TV, and so I thought of making it a blog feature. πŸ™‚

Anna Sui recently launched its newest makeup collection, featuring Anna Sui Moisture Rich Foundation. It’s packed with SPF 15 and promises to create naturally flawless, pore-perfecting finish. It’s enriched with botanical ingredients such as rose extract, grape seed oil and raspberry extract that have aromatherapheutic, anti-oxidizing and moisturizing properties to make skin healthier and prevent it from drying. Best of all, it’s encased in an iconic rose motif compact that’s just utterly gorgeous! πŸ˜€

Honestly, I haven’t tried a product yet from Anna Sui. Yet, this one looks pretty convincing, as it swears by the flawless, pore-less part! Also, one to try out is the Anna Sui Loose Powder that has oil-absorbing ingredients to create a long lasting, soft luminous finish.

Beauty for a cause: Mio’s Fight

Cleary, vanity is one of the seven deadly sins, and undeniably my favorite one! Ironically, this sin (i.e. your feverish lust for beauty product hoarding) can actually save an innocent life.

Mio fights cancer

Mio at a very young age is already fighting the greatest battle of his life. Albeit cancer-stricken, his illness doesn’t show on his very happy and radiant facade. Leukemia is a tough opponent, and a very costly one. So, here’s one way to help: buy beauty products!

A kind-hearted blogger (Beauty for a Living) is currently selling really nice stuff (BeneFit, Laura Mercier, Kenzo, Mugler, etc) at bargain prices. Discounts go from around 30-50% off! Proceeds will go to Mio’s chemotherapy treatment.

Visit the site now and save this young soldier’s life!

You can also check out Mio’s own website to learn how to help.
