At the same timing last year, we just came back from our summer vacation; I had written one article, Early Autumn Essentials. I received good feedback from you than usual. This year, the journey of our road trip has started in the middle summer and ended at the beginning of autumn; I think it might be a good opportunity to share another Autumn Essentials story with you. Without further ado, let us take a look at some goods that I had prepared before the fall arrived.
I have only a few underwears, just enough for washing and changing. However, I buy new bras and underclothes every year before autumn comes; it is my way to welcome the favorite season. It is a little bonus for myself. Some years ago, I realized how comfortable soft bras are; since then, I only wear soft lace bras in my daily life. It brings such great and confident feeling when I just team a soft bra with a cotton T-Shirt in summer or a cashmere pullover in winter.
HANRO has always been one of my favorite labels; the quality is comfortable, and the average price is affordable. If you take a look at its website, you will realize that HANRO does not offer “that kind of super woman sexy” styles. Instead, they design for real women who enjoy a relaxed and comfortable life. The concept is just as the same as I try to learn in the recent years. I ordered the LuLu lace set in ocean blue that is my first time trying a fresh and bright color for my underwear collection. After dressing it on, I felt butterflies in my belly. You also see the stripes shirt that I took from the collection; the texture is soft as silk. After a warm shower and the body lotion, and then put the shirt on, it is time for a sweet dream.
Recent years, I add beauty masks to my beauty round. Besides the regular skin care routine, beauty masks are a necessary step for mature women to keep skin moisturizing. In July, I had a project secretly that called “30 days masks”. I used different masks that offered different effects, moisturizing, cleansing and anti-aging. After one month, I felt my skin was in a very balanced and moisturizing condition; especially when I did makeup, my skin glowed.
TALIKA is my favorite beauty mask label; the cut, the quality and the effect are the best among the goods I have tried so far. The Bubble Mask is their newest product that is focusing on oxygenating anti-pollution. The mask is black with fine white bubbles on it. When you put it on the face, bubbles will increase on the mask and then cover the mask. After ten to fifteen minutes, remove it and wash the face slightly with water. You will feel all pores are free. TALIKA offers up to 7 kinds of masks in different effects. The price is not as low as the typical ones. However, it is worth to give a regular mask care every one to two weeks; especially for a mature woman, for example, me.
3 LAB is a luxury beauty brand; after trying some products, I realized how worth it is. That is also the reason that I save the budget aside for some months, and then get the products I need before the cold days come. I looked for the Ginseng collection for a while; I had ordered the eye cream and the face cream before we left for our summer vacation so that when we were back, I could start the urgent skin care routine to save my skin after three weeks sun touch. I have no words to describe the feeling after trying the Ginseng creams; the skin glows itself. Highly recommended.
We sometimes talk about how women shall treat yourself pleasantly; for this point, I do it completely. Not for others but myself, to have a joyful Me Time and feel satisfied from the bottom of my heart. I hope you enjoy the article as I do.
我們總是談論「當個寵愛自己的女人」這個話題， 而我也確實在自己能力範圍內努力執行；原因無他，正是在努力工作之後也希望擁有自己的Me Time，不需要向別人交代、無需理由，真心感到快樂。希望你也喜歡這一季的推薦。
