Oriental Princess~

Here are some new items I just bought today. Actually, I have used OP products for many years. This brand is my favourite because it's cheap and made in Thailand.

Now I'm going to review 2 pieces of make-up. The first item is Brilliant White Twisty Concealer. There are very few shades so I chose 01 Porcelain Paradise TC. It will help to cover up dark spots on facial skin. I bought it for 255 baht.



And the last one is Individualist Silky Eye Colours (Refill). Personally, I like to use a single eyeshadow to brighten my eyes because it's very easy and can save time. This item is 74 Light Caramel SE. I bought it for 85 baht.

Jane Eyre (2011)


Back to 1847, many people in London had a chance to welcome a dramatic novel titled Jane Eyre for the first time. It was written by Charlotte Bronte under the pen name "Currer Bell." The renowned novel has been adapted for films, television, etc. Its most recent film version came out last year with Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender performing lead roles.

The story tells us about a young woman named Jane Eyre who takes the position of governess at Thornfield Hall. She meets her master, Edward Rochester, and falls for him. It appears that Mr. Rochester is interested in Jane also. After spending time together, their relationship develops into a commitment. His proposal unexpectedly reveals a secret kept in the house. What Jane has learned is so painful that she decides to leave.
