Instead of doing the last minute thing, I’ve been accumulating some small items as Christmas gifts. These are items randomly selected like stationery, accessories and cosmetics. They’re really stocking fillers and I haven’t quite decided who to give them to or how I’m going to bundle them in the end. But I think they make safe gifts for ladies. Now I just have to figure out what to get for guys.
I don’t usually notice manufacturing dates of cosmetics that often because most products I get usually only feature expiry dates. However, I noticed that two of the items I redeemed from VMV Hypoallergenics had the manufacturing dates printed on their packaging and they were dated in 2011. Like one the items featured in the picture you see here is a pressed powder with a manufacturing date of April 2011 and expiry date of April 2014.

Does anyone out there like to visit to dentist? Wow, you do? Because I absolutely HATE visiting the dentist! If I can, I’ll avoid. But for the sake of my teeth, I do try to visit at least once a year. And that, is not good dental care, I was told. Well, better than not going I say. So even though I really like the idea of having a set of pristine white teeth, I cannot bring myself to visit a dentist for that purpose.
