Makeup Brushes To Die For - I have been a loyal follower of Shu Uemura's handmade makeup brushes for over 10 years. Bristles are offered in many different animal or synthetic hairs including pony, mink, badger, goat, etc. No other makeup company offers as many brush types as Shu.

Whether you are just starting your collection or adding to one, I recommend trying Shu uemura make up brushes!

Piperlime vs Zappos - If you really like Zappos, you will really like Piperlime. Piperlime is basically a copycat of Zappos - they offer the same free shipping and return benefits. Although Zappos offers more shoes (and products), Piperlime offers some different brands. Also, the site is cleaner and more contemporary looking which makes it more pleasant to browse their site.

Good for Oily Skin - I used Clinique products when I was a teenager. It was a great introduction to skincare. I loved the little soap bars and the jade colored makeup compact. However, as I've gotten older, my skin has become more dry and Clinique products are just not sufficiently moisturizing. Nowadays I opt for Shiseido products. I've heard that La Mer cream is heavenly - but at $190 a pop, it's a little out of my price range!

Best Prices & Most Products for Hair - This is a really good site for hair products. I purchased my Farouk CHI ceramic hair iron from this site and I was pleased with the product and the service form this site. I shopped around and found that this site had the best price and free shipping! They've really expanded on their product offering as well.

No Fax machine - get an EFAX account! - My landline went dead for some reason and I couldn't wait for AT&T to come fix it... so I decided to open an efax account. This is a great service. You can do everything by email and it stores copies of the faxes for you. The best part is that they give you a fax number with area code of your choice.

Tweezers for Life! - I used to spend a lot of money on tweezers. I would buy the ones made by Laura Mercer, Shu Uemura... they always got dull and I ended up throwing them out. Ever since I purchased my first pair of Tweezermans, I have never needed to purchase a replacement pair. I've only found the need to purchase extra pairs to stash in my bag or at my bfs place!

Make a Statement! - It's a pity that Anna Sui cosmetics is not popular in the States. I love Anna Sui's gothic princess designs, and it's reflected in her beauty products.

Best New Shopping Site - I love shopping at tobi.com. Not only are all the best brands and newest styles available - I love how the site organizes thier products on their sites. Things are easy to find. Also, they have great customer service!

Hello Kitty Forever - I don't know what kind of childhood I would have had if I didn't have my BFF, Hello Kitty. How could I have gotten through school without scented pens and sparkly erasers??? Now I no longer need to feel guilty perusing the aisles at the Hello Kitty store (it's distracting to shop when there are a bunch of 7 year olds running up and down the aisles)!!! This is a great site that even offers... Hello Kitty in pave diamond?!! Hellooooo KItty!!!

Not So Great For Petites - Sometimes I will find items of interest on this site, however they rarely offer my size and color. This is a good site for someone of average size who doesn't mind wearing last season's styles.

For iPod geeks - Great site for iPod accessories!

Open Table is NOT reliable - Lately, I have begun to rely on Open Table to choose restaurants. The site is easy to use and I like the list of participating restaurants. I was very disappointed, however, when I tried to make same night reservations on 5/25/08. I used Open Table to search for available seating and made a reservation at Ana Madera for 9:30pm, table for 2. We arrived on time at the restaurant and the hostess turned us away. She said that our order had to be placed before 9:30pm because their kitchen closes promptly at 9:30pm. When we asked her why we were allowed to make a 9:30 reservation on OT, she shrugged her shoulders. Had I known that Ana Madera had this policy, I would have made my reservation at another restaurant. Can I still count on Open Table?

The Best Dog Toy - The Kong is probably the second best friend any dog owner can have. It is made with such sturdy rubber that my "tear through anything including my dry wall" Golden Retriever still has not demolished it.

There is a small opening in the middle of the Kong toys that you can fill with peanut butter or cookies. Your furry friend will spend hours trying to figure out how to remove every last morsel from the middle of the Kong.

These toys are so effective at getting dogs' attention and focus, that the SPCA fills them with dog food to feed their rescue dogs. No matter how nervous or anxious their dog rescues may be, the moment the Kong comes out the dog relaxes and focuses on the Kong.

This site has all the different Kongs available at local stores. I highly recommend this toy!

Blackberry vs iPhone - What's all this hype about a 3G iPhone? Some of us aren't docked in an office all day and actually NEED more than 5 hours of battery life! I'm always on the go - and a tactile QWERTY is a must for me. For those of us who oftentimes get trapped at airports - the Blackberry Media Sync is also compatible with iTunes! The 3G Blackberry Bold is due to come out so the iPhone really needs to move over. Sure, the iPhone is CUTER...

Wake up doe-eyed every morning!!! - Sadly, I was born with short, sparse Asian eyelashes. Luckily, someone's watching out for people like me and developed eyelash extensions!!! I just had some installed and I looooove them. They're semi permanent, waterproof, and truly low maintenance. I no longer need to struggle with eyelash glue and I wake up doe -eyed every morning. The price has come down significantly over the years, but they're still kinda pricey to maintain.

Timing is Everything!!! - My friend recently told me about this new site. Rather than filling out questionnaires and taking personality tests, you can just sign yourself up for a blind date! Has anyone tried this? Isn't it risky???

Most Comprehensive for Asian Entertainment - This is the best site for the latest Asian music, movies, and books. It's especially useful because you can do searches in English or other Asian languages. Since there is a lack of good Chinese radio and tv in the states, I often depend on sites like YesAsia for the newest releases in music and movies.
