Taxes, Ice Cream and Beauty Gala

My Financial Advisor Preacher
My sister and I visited our financial advisor last night to file our income tax. We were there from 9pm to 12:45am!!! Of course he lectured us on spending money, saving and stuff, he also tried to convert us into Christians. However, he did gave us lots of advice and insights. After we came home, we sat down and talked for a bit -- our plans for the future. She encourages me too for going to England and try it out. Now I'm 90% set of going, I should start gathering all my paperwork...

Ice Cream = Happy. Free Ice Cream = Happier.
You scream, I scream... I <3 Ice Cream!! Did you know that I have at least 2 different flavours of ice cream in my freezer all year around? Currently I have: Palour's Chocolate, Breyer's French Vanilla, Cherry Chocolate Chunk from President's Choice and Rolo ice-cream.

Today is freezing and marks the annual Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's! The line up was all the way back to Amatos when I arrived. Eileen came shortly after, perfect timing. The queue goes quickly. We both wanted the Triple Caramel Chunk but they weren't the stickered item so we couldn't try it. She ended up getting the Phish Food® in a cone and I got my boring old favourite Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough in a cup. She's going to go back and try the Strawberry Cheesecake. Hmmm... Come to think of it, I might go back after work and try the new Bavlaka flavour. Yummmm...

Beauty in Bloom
Couldn't go back for another free ice-cream. Instead, I met up with Janet after work to attend Beauty in Bloom a cosmetic/beauty gala. We first went to the registry and show our ticket, we received a briefcase like gift bag with samples in it also a listing of events and specials deals, and a ballot. We played a few games in the fragrances counters and "won" a few samples. We then visit my sister demonstrating at the LancĂ´me counter. Then we went over and spend most of our time at the Anna Sui counter. We adore her packaging and we both fell in love with her rose scented lipstick! Unfortunately, the colours were too sheer on me, I ended up buying the Luxury Powder Carry Case and the Ring Rouge in hot pink. Then Phud Thai dinner at Salad King!
