Pet peeves…

27 Feb

Pet peeves… everyone has one right? I just rediscovered one of mine today. People who bother you while you are studying. You know the situation… where you are about to get something right or a great idea for the paper and then someone comes in and bothers you resulting in you forgetting what you just realized. RAWR! It’s especially worse in my house due to the fact that my bedroom is shared and my brother or family like to knock on the wall (since the kitchen is just behind my wall one level down) to let me know it’s dinner time for some trivial matter. Especially worse today as I was doing some pretty intense chemistry and my brother knocked on the wall to tell me to eat my dinner. Well you can’t choose your family but if I could I would.

Onto more positive things today, for me I usually don’t get productive until about 3:00 so I ended up practicing some makeup today. The look will be posted up in another post. I don’t like to mix beauty things with blog things…

But I also ended up depotting my Joe Fresh Black eyeshadow and then realized after it was depotted that it was too big for my Annabelle compact.

 That is what it ended up looking… the plastic at the bottom was really really melted and bubbles formed and everything. It took a lot of melting for it to come out.

I’m now comtemplating whether to get a magnetic palette so that I can store in my NYX square eyeshadows. A UNII palette?

Blue Expensive though…$29…

Here is their website if anyone is interested. http://uniicosmetics.com/cart/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53

Anyways, I should get back to my work and there will be more reviews coming up and other things as well.

Spring is here!

18 Feb

I took a bunch of photos today… well I don’t know if it’s considered a lot but it a lot to me?? Either way here they are…

The stairs that I had to climb this morning… x8 = 94 stairs (yes that is exact) and a common sight that we all know and see everywhere. Anyone want to guess?

     

Yes. there were dandelions on the ground… taped… darn we can’t get rid of them so easily.

Since it’s spring what is spring preparation without a little Spring cleaning? So in order for me to do that I ended up going to get some organizational items and ended up with so much more.

 So the stuff that I bought as you can tell is a panda garbage can, razors, soap from Rocky Mountain Soap Company, Clay mask from Botanics, a kid-proof lighter, Oh Henry!, 2 pepperoni sticks, EOS shaving lotion, organizational holders, Got2B Guardian Angel Heat Protectorant, Botanics Skin Brightening Cleanser, and a PC Blue Menu Blueberry and Acai Smoothie. Yup, lots of stuff. I’m going to do a review on the Smoothie later when I drink it with the rest of my family. ^_^

That is basically it for today… going to do a bunch more work mainly Chemistry and watching Youtube videos but yeah, until next time.

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!

Sick day #4

22 Jan

So I didn’t update in a while as feeling sick ain’t the greatest thing ever….

Well an picture of me today:

 Yup! Healthy well almost healthy just got the sniffles left to deal with but no more drugs yay!!

In the end, Coldfx FAILED me!!! And Tylenol Sinus came out triumphant. After a while I realized that Coldfx didn’t work as well because it didn’t target my sypmtoms but rather my immune system. And well, if I know my body more than anyone else I think that I should have taken Coldfx before I gotten sick. Anyways, so Tylenol Sinus really helped relieved my symptoms the running nose, unable to breathe because of blockaged airways, sore throat with cough. Yup, I have learned my lesson Tylenol rules.

So not much done today but I’ve completed the next Chem pre-lab assignment which is something off my mind. I’m going to do the Japanese worksheet later on today and I have to catch up in the Nutrition textbook. But before I do all that… it’s time to get clean!!

Clean time clean time yay! That’s all for today.

Cold Day

6 Dec

Very vold day today as I spent most of the time outside waiting for the bus to come so that I could go for the study session at the U today. I was tempted to go and get a hot chocolate but held off. I wore those tight-fitting boots again so it was pretty painful. Spent most of the day studying and travelling as well. Heh, I should say half of my day was spent travelling. Very tired today but I’m about the half-way point through the chemistry textbook. Tomorrow I will attempt to finish it off and if I can’t then I’ll prep for EASIA and run through the notes posted online and try to work through the problem sets. Studying…

Well, time to go to sleep now. Lucky I don’t have to go to the U tomorrow. TY!

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!!
