On the Look out: Mar 28, 2010

21 Mar

So this is a product look out that I’m putting up. I’m planning to get this and it is…..

The NEW Nintendo DSi XL!

This is the UK versions… comes in the described as burgandy, white, and bronze. Currently the bronze and burgandy are available in America.

This is a future planning purchase because I have an original DS Lite which still works great and has a bunch of scratch marks from the stylus (going to replace that screen soon though). I don’t like the color selection so I’m going to wait until they come out with some other colors and then I’ll go and get it.

BTW, coming out Mar 28, 2010 in Canada and retails for $199.99CDN.

And it’s another Monday… sigh… still gotta prepare for my Chemistry Midterm on Fri. So for the next little while it just might be scheduled posts so that I don’t have to visit site very often to update and such.

I’ve been bouncing around ideas and was wondering

But something that has caught my eye yet again is…

And it sure is real…. or is it?

Anyways congratulations to all the Olympic atheletes who participated in the Games and made Canada proud! 14 Gold medals with a total of 26 medals! So proud of our atheletes!

P.S. The mascots bid you all farewell and hoped that you had a great time in Canada as they did.

Concept of Beauty – Body Image

17 Feb

How does one define beauty? What does it mean to be beautiful? Is it clear skin? Piercing eyes? A nice jawline? Good proportioned face? A skinny body? A toned body? What about in different cultures? What does beauty mean to them?

In this post I am going to be bouncing back and forth between Asian ideals and Western ideals comparing similarities and differences. And it is specific to body image in each cultures.

Let’s compare an Asian model to a Western model.

  vs. 

The models have a similar type of body… the skinny kind that designers really love mainly to save money.

For those who don’t know it is preferable for models to be size 0 because it saves the designer money on the fabrics.

The progression of sizes…

 <  <  From stick skinny to toned body to slightly chubby.

As seen in Asia it is more preferable to have a skinny body or a toned body. A good comparison

 vs.

I get the feeling that asian girls tend to be more skinny but I believe that in both the West and the East girls care about their body image equally.

So either way I’d thought that I would share that with everyone because girls do have a negative body image of themselves due to societies views and peer pressure.

I want to spread the word that you are beautiful no matter what you look like or even if you have flaws. Spread love not hate!

Long day = treat!

28 Jan

Yes… today was a long day… though not compared to yesterday. Since it was a pretty long day and I was pretty exhausted by the time classes ended at 2 I booked it home and made a new record! Bus ride home usually takes 1 hour and a half but today I only took 45 mins!! The dashing home must have been a good plan. ^_^

To commemorate how the cold is in Canada I decided to take this photo:

The cold here is not like any other cold… it’s so ninja! You think it’s warm and everything but then all of a sudden it’s cold!! Ninja! Well, it sinks deep into the bones making it seem really cold.

But since tomorrow I have an exam I decided that I would study lots today and I finished studying…. so I’m going to treat my skin to something really funky…

It’s my last Montange Jeunesse face mask… I love these things! I love the fact that the company doesn’t test on animals and that the product is made of natural ingredients (vegan!). The smells are great and everything!! It’s pretty cheap on the wallet too only $2CDN for one… I don’t know if they sell these in the US or not… but the company is from the UK so that’s pretty exciting  too! I’m going to need to go and buy more! This one is the Strawberry Souffle and it says that it’s a moisterizing and purifying mask. Perfect for winter time. What a nice way to treat myself.

That reminds me I have to go and get some more storage spaces for my area… it’s becoming a mess once again…

Or at least I feel that it is a mess… see how many things that you can spot on there! And yes there is a Christmas tree to the right-hand side. To me it’s Christmas everyday!! But I will eventually put it away just when is the question. ^_^

Anyways, going to get back to some more studying whoopeee!
