Snow day

4 Dec

Today it snowed like crazy!! I took a picture of my feet and of how powdery the snow was. Here they are:

This was taken a while ago at Kingsway Garden Mall. That place is pretty cool!

So what ended up happening was great for EASIA has a fun time trying to review. It just shows that I gotta go over a few things and really really focus on chemistry.

On the way home I decided to stop by Superstore to get some Crispers as it was cold and I knew I needed some energy by the time I reached Millgate Transit station. So I went and Superstore had just recently finished renovating so I kinda got lost sorta. Here’s what the exterior looked like… I don’t think I was allowed to take photos inside so I didn’t.

Since it was snowing it doesn’t look so good. Maybe I should take one in the summer and then compare. Heh, that sounds like fun. Anyways, it was a difficult way to get home. The snow was about… 20 cm or 30 cm? But there was a lot of snow so when the bus stopped it had difficulty moving again. Due to that I had to take a 61 home so that I could get home on time. Horrible walking home. Basically people didn’t shovel the sidewalk so walking on the road was much cooler than on the sidewalk. Everytime a car came, oh time to go search for the pavement… and once it passed back on the road. While walking towards my house I was basically in the middle of the road. Fun times… I should have taken a photo. Darn missed my chance. But it was really cold when the wind picked up while I was going home. It like picks an opportuned time to harrass me. Sheesh, anyways home safe and sound even though I’m a little cold nothing but some hot chocolate can’t fix.

I can’t wait for the exams to be over. I really don’t like studying…

I’m slowly running out of lip balm so I’m thinking of getting SoftLips as my next product instead of going to Rocky Mountain Soap Company for my current lipbalm which is like $5. Yeah, might get it today with the gang depending if its in stock or not.

I was thinking when I head out to WEM with my brother the Princess and the Frog will be out so I wonder if I will be able to go and watch it…. I would really like to. Been a really long time since I’ve been to a theatre to watch a movie. I should ask Quyen about it. Anyways, I have to do laundry today so I’m off to do that and after studying. Hwaiting!!

Last day!!!

3 Dec

Today was the last day of classes!! YAY!! Time to seriously go and study…. argh!!

I must learn to love the subjects which is kinda hard to do as I have no idea what the subjects are talking about. Ugh, I think I’m going to be doing a lot of studying which I don’t really like doing. *sigh* no choice I have to do it. Really have to focus on Chem though… the only subject that I am currently failing in. I also go EASIA and Stats to worry about.

But putting the studying aside I went to WEM today and I told myself that if Fruits & Passion did not have the fragrance trio that I wanted I would go and use my $5 for something else. And that was what ended up happening. They have everything else except for the fruity scents… ugh but I picked up some other things with the money meant for the fragrances. I went into LUSH for the first time today. Yay me! Ended up getting 2 massage bars I was actually thinking about getting the Strawberry one or the Therapy one but neither smelled good. Like they were smells that didn’t describe me so I didn’t want to have that on my body. The Sales Associates were really nice and knew there stuff too not to annoying like what I read on the net. Ahaha, I got a tin for free and got two Each Peach because I really like the crispy orangey type smell to it. It melts quite quickly so I cut it up once I got home and put it in a container. I pray that it won’t like melt while sitting on top of my makeup box. But I got a backup and that one is in the tin which is great. ^_^ I think that the next time I go to LUSH that is the only type of product that I will get.

Well actually I was thinking about getting the Mask of Magniminty I believe is what it is called and it’s quite cheaper than the Body Shop but doesn’t last as long so I’m debating about that or going to go and buy the Body Shop Seaweed one. But my current mask which is Body Shop blue corn isn’t planning to run out soon I’ve used about 1/4 of it. Still a lot left to go.

The only other places that I went to were Dollar Store and Dollarama. Wait, is there a difference between them? Yes, yes there is… the Dollar store has everything for a dollar while Dollarama has stuff that is over a dollar and is labelled. I personally like the Dollar store better for like hair clips and candy and Dollarama for general stuff. So what I ended up getting from the Dollar store is 4 sour belts, and 30 hair elastics which were in a set pastel colors! Really pretty cool stuff and from Dollarama I got more running tape and nail file for a Christmas stocking. I still have a dollar left and that is for next time I go to WEM I’m going to get more sour belts. So yummy!

On the way back I decided that I would stop by Tim Hortons and get a hot chocolate because the wind made the weather really really cold!! So I stopped by there and had to try to retreat to someplace warm as quick as possible. Man, freezing cold! I bought a large hot chocolate (as I have a ongoing hate for coffee) and a donut for my sister. Camped out at my sister’s high school while waiting for her to finish up her stuff. I should buy Tim Hortons more often the stuff there is actually ok. By the time I reached my sisters high school my hot chocolate was on the verge of mildly warm. Still yummy…

Ended up coming home and my sister bullying me on the way home which is kinda strange because she is 2 years younger than me but still ends up beating me up. Hate that. So, I am off to work on homework and I smell great too!! So positive I am seriously loving the Each Peach massage bar. My sister says it smell like Pledge (cleaner for wooden surfaces) and lemongrass combined. I don’t think I smell like that but it was quite interesting taking a trip to LUSH.

I am seriously craving a Whopper from Burger King…. no must focus on studying. STUDY!!

Working hard

2 Dec

I told myself that I was going to reduce my spending after spending so much money in November alone but now LUSH is tempting me again. The massage bars are the ones that are tempting me…. I’m thinking either the Strawberry Feels Forever or the Therapy or Each Peach. If you get two bars you get the massage bar tin for free, each bar is $8.95CDN. When I thought about it I actually have tins from the Christmas cookie that I got from the Dollarstore but I want to smell the massage bars first before I buy. Smell is very important I don’t want to put something on me without liking the smell because you will smell like the bar after using it. Also thinking about the Tea Tree Toner Tab $1.50CDN to use though I would have no idea how to use it. I am going to become a LUSH junkie.

But other than me being tempted I went to Kingsway yesterday and the new mall looks good I took pictures of their decorations I want to go back to get some more photos. The Fruits & Passion did not have the Fragrance trio that I was looking for so sad so I have to go to WEM this Thursday to see if they got the trio in stock or not. Ugh, I hate long bus rides.

Well, studying chemistry is really hard work. So much that I don’t remember that is really bad the final exam is like next week. >.< I’ll do my best!! Studying is going to take over my life so I’m actually planning not to go to Fri class or maybe I should be there physically but I really have to study. Curse the fact that the gradings are taking place this week…. rawr!

Staying home most of the time…. Fri I still have to come due to Adolphson’s extra class thingie majig. Mon, I think I just might stay home and study… I don’t want to go to school but home distracts me too. I’ll be a hermit for the following week for sure. Haha…

Handed out most of my presents today… I just now have to hand out Yoon Sun’s present to her tomorrow?? I’m going to Facebook her and ask her to come tomorrow. I won’t leave for WEM until I have handed her the present. Afterall, I worked so hard to go and get the presents and much thought was put behind each one. I got presents from Koreen and I totally wasn’t expecting one from Gigi!! That was so shocking!! So now we are Facebook friends which is great because I don’t know when we’ll all see each other again.

STUDY TIME!! Hwaiting!

Nearly the end

1 Dec

It’s nearly the end of the term!! I can’t believe it! Finally almost done! I’m going to try to put up a photo everyday.

So today, I began giving out the Christmas present because I don’t know when I’ll be able to see them again. Jinnee gave me a huge present!! I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. So big!!! I’ll post a picture up after Christmas because I wouldn’t want to spoil showing my Christmas presents so soon. But the stuff that I got for my friends are from this site.

So everyone got something different that was towards working on their skins. Best part that I can brag about it is that it’s from the UK and it’s eco-friendly too! Using all natural ingredients that’s so positive. I also gave out Bell ornaments they were really really jingly and a mini ornament candycane. All the stuff was put in a brown paper lunch bag (I know cheap eh?) decorated the bag and gave it to them. The paper bag is a great way to save money on gift-wrapping. I hope to get a video up on Youtube about it. Maybe after my exams or the in-between sessions.

There was a back-to-back episode of NCIS even though it was old episodes it was great!! I’ve never had a double dose of NCIS before so it was really nice. Though there goes my plans of having an early night. Anyways, not much today, my desk is all clean for studying though which is absolutely positive. ^_^ I can actually work on it now. Studying tomorrow!! Hwaiting!!
