A tiring day…

3 Feb

Wednesdays are always tiring but today was even more tiring so it feels like. Ugh… it wasn’t a good day….

I forgot my biology paper at home so I had to go and get it… an hour and a half home but I stopped by the dollar store on the way home and picked up another one of the storage bins and a bead stacked container for my NYX pigments. I just realized that Americans have more pigment colors available to them compared to us Canadians… darn it. Anyways, I was at home for about an hour and I basically put away my pigments, organized my vanity with the new storage bin and wrote some more stuff on my physical book blog… I think writing made me tired. The lighting ain’t so good when you’re sitting on the floor.

But the positive thing for today is….

A Korean R&B singer whose music is a nice relief from all the pop songs and idol groups on the music scene right now. Gotta love the R&B. The tracks that I really like are Angels Disguise, Did I Ever Love You?, Even If We Can’t Speak of the End, Lies, and Love. They are really good tracks but the most surprising thing for me was that Angels Disguise was in English… SURPRISE! She has a really nice voice and now it is my sleeping/studying music. ^_^ Happiness!
If you would like the album is available for download somewhere on the internet… but these are the songs that I would recommend listening to.

Well, signing off for today… gotta begin to actually study for my exams on Wed and Thurs next week respectively.

Packaging = done!

1 Feb

I have finished packaging my red pocket money!

 Here is the packages!! Woohoo! So what I put inside them is chocolate dollars because I can’t afford to put in real money for all my friends. ^_^ Therefore, chocolate money does suffice and the fact is New Years Day is on Valentines Day. ^_^ It makes sense. I also added in a note in the pocket that says Happy New Years in Viet. ^_^ Fun times.

I have already basically decided what to do for Youtube postings and such. ^_^ Fun times yay! Putting up the tet videos for sure and hopefully a makeup tutorial.

I’m going on a high-fiving spree tomorrow! And hopefully I will have a nice clean vanity as well tomorrow. Gotta practice my high fives for tomorrow! Gotta work those arm muscles!

I like photos with posts so I’ll do my best to post with a photo! Hooray for photos!

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!!
