New Desk

3 May

Hello everyone! Just wanted to show you my new desk that I bought from Ikea. It’s pretty awesome and I wished I got it sooner to study but the past is the past. Here’s the desk:

It’s a MICKE desk without the added shelf on top (I want to build it myself or thought if I got a desktop computer it won’t be able to fit under the back frame…)

Holiday Shopping

9 Nov

Hello everyone! So I have started my Christmas shopping and I’ve slowly made a list of things to get and who is getting what. Luckily this year, I am giving out lots of home-made gifts (there will be posts later on those gifts) and all that I have to purchase are decorators if I want to decorate even more and the actual DIY project items needed. So for a great beginning to the Holiday season I give to you pictures of presents and Christmas trees. ^_^

Totally wish I had this tree.. unfortunately I have a height restriction…

Beauty Project

19 Jul

Hey everyone! So I have been on a beauty project for a while and I have finally finished it! Hooray for DIY!

What I did was I modified my Physician’s Formula Bamboo compact to accomodate my N.Y.C. Pressed Translucent Powder which was too large to fit in the compact. The actual powder from the bamboo line is about $15CDN which is pretty expensive for a powder so I didn’t want to pick it up. Thus, leading to the modification job.

Powder depottation:

Completed Project:

My dad is a CNC Machinist so his shop has the machinery to cut the compact but I couldn’t get any photos of that but now it fits! Thanks Dad!

Sending out some Love

17 Dec

Slow day today… didn’t go anywhere so that was pretty boring I did basically nothing at home though. Heh… other than watching Inglourious Basterds. That was a pretty interesting movie a little to violent for me but it was ok. Brad Pitts accent was very entertaining.

Fished out the video camera so now I can start making videos and such. I really want to get a DIY tinted moisterizer up on Youtube soon. I was looking around places to go and film it in my room but the lighting is still pretty bad so I’m just going to film at my desk just because it’s easier to have access to lighting which still isn’t the best but it will do for now.

Cutting my bangs today… probably by the end of the week or the beginning of next week I will have a trim for my hair… which is long but I have to go and protect it somehow you know?

Well, I am heading up to Northgate Mall tomorrow and it looks like there isn’t much up there… the only place that I plan to visit is the dollar store and maybe Zellers to see if they have good deals. Then I’m heading off to Kingsway Garden Mall which is on the way back to Southgate so I’ll stop by there to see if I can get a brochure… yeah, I like brochures… I’m going to be putting them into my scrapbook. Yay! I have one for Londonderry, and City Center. So the places that I plan to go to tomorrow is Northgate, Kingsway Garden Mall, Southgate and before going home… London Drugs. Things that I am going to get are… from the dollar store a basket for my hair and skin products, a over the side purse thing and some licorice if possible. At Shoppers I believe that they are having a sale on the Olay Body Wash thingies and I have a coupon for it so I think I will use it. Hooray for coupons! Lets see what else… London Drugs… what the heck was I wanting from there?? Oh yeah, leave-in hair conditioner… I have to have that as my hair is currently going to fall apart due to the wear and tear and the fact that the shampoo does get my hair clean but is rough on the hair follicles and that the conditioner really does nothing for my hair… yeah, leave-in conditioner is a total must have. Also a nail buffing block… it’s cheaper at London Drugs than at Sephora which is great cause that means I can save some money. If I do have some money left over I’m going to head to Superstore to get more Ovation chocolate mint sticks and saving them as my sister ate most of it up and it is pretty yummy. Later times later times. But licorice is a must!! I might buy 2… or 3 depending if I want to carry all that home. Heh.

Oh, I decided against getting the shimmering eyeshadow from the Body Shop as I could always wait for a sale from them so yeah. I’ll wait and get like a few when they have a sale going on for their makeup… always waiting for deals.

So with most of my things planned out all I have to do is remember to buy everything I want tomorrow. All written down yay!

I’m pretty excited for the week to end and for me and Quyen to go shopping on Mon… dollar stores here I come!! So frugal. Heh.
