Review: Lavshuca Palette in OR-1

1 Feb

Hello everyone! A Japanese drugstore review today. Orange was a popular shade last spring and it’s expected to be a hot trend color once again.

Description: Four tantalizing shades of a modern mandarin. The first shade is orange tone champagne, a bright mandarin, a midtone brown, and a darker brown with orange shimmers. All the shades are shimmery shades with an orange tint.

Review: I find that orange shades are very flattering on practically any skintone the warmth that it provides for the skintone . It’s just a really nice shade to work with and since it is a trend color it just adds a nice pop of color. Pigmentation is good but I find that it is a bit chalky and there is a lot of fall out when I apply it. The powder itself is quite soft and blendable and the packaging is just too adorable.

Cost: $13-18USD @ online stores (ebay.ca)

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this to those looking for an orange shade but of course the downside is that it is only available in Japan so airmail time and shipping could deter you from purchasing.

20 things before 20

18 May

Hello everyone! So I have a 20 things before 20 list which is a list I compiled of 20 things to do before I turn 20 this September (19 to be specific). I have some time before my birthday so this list is to help me go through things that I would never do if I didn’t have a timeline. So here is my list:

1. Finish my embroidery project.

2. Read Watchmen.

3. Buy an iPad 2… enough said

4. Go to Animethon 18 which is on Aug 5-7 this year. I will be planning to go for only one day I don’t think I can get off work that easily.

5. Finish Wa-loli Kuro outfit. I started this project 3 years ago and have never finished it better late then never right?

6. Obtain a mushroom farm… kinda like this:

7. Pay mum & dad $100 from my first paycheck as well as my brother $100 (cuz I owe him for all the lunches he’s treated me to) and for my little sister $40 (she complains that she doesn’t have money all the time). Hopefully this one will be soon. ^-^

8. Get a library card… since I’m an adult I have to go get my own library card but I’ve just been lazy to go get one… I will get one though.

9. Start Youtube videos… something I’ve been wanting to do since last year but never had courage or time to make videos and put it up. I will do it for sure!!

10. Determine birthday present wishlist. I know that the iPad is on this list for a reason…

11. Determine 2 year financial plan. Since I plan to go to Japan in the upcoming 2 years I have to plan to make sure that I have enough money while travelling and such. Thus this plan… it’s going to take a lot of brain power that’s why I keep putting it aside.

12. Stay a neat freak… yeah this photo really shows how much I need to stay a neat freak.

13. Continue to study Japanese and Chinese. This one I won’t be doing anytime soon until school starts in September. I will be attending a Sat language class in Sept.

14. Try out a different martial arts even if it’s just one class I would like to try something different. Perhaps kung fu?

15. Attemp yoga/pilates. I would really like to try this but I don’t have much money to spend it on a class (financial plan) so I will learn from a book/video from the library (need library card) or Youtube is a great resource as well.

16. Try food from Sbarro, Thai Express, and Taco Bell. I just want to get out of my usual going to McDonalds or Subway to eat. I never try different foods so here are three places great to try out my taste palette.

17. Go to a spa. I have never gone to a beauty salon so I would really like to go to one. Perhaps from Eveline Charles.

18. Go on a staycation. I am planning with my brother and sister that we should go to the car museum in Wetaskiwin and possibly the Aviation museum in Alberta. But other things for a staycation is attending Capital X (summer amusement park) and Heritage festival (showcasing different cultures from different countries) as well as Animethon of course.

19. Play Spyro: Ripto’s Rage (PS) and finish Pokemon SoulSilver (DS). I have not finished these games and would really like to for sure.

20. Attempt to make curry flavoured popcorn. I heard about the elusive curry flavoured popcorn and since there is not a big chance to come across curry flavoured popcorn I might as well make it myself.

I will be updating every time I finish an item on the list and there is no set order to complete the list as long as the list is completely finished before I turn 20.

Studying Abroad

8 Nov

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to write about studying abroad. This post is inspired by my fellow Chinese club members. ^_^ This can be your lunchtime! (or a break day)

 or even here

I am inspired to go out intot he world to explore it. ^_^ Now I just have to save up enough money to afford the plane tickets. ^_^

Asian Haul Time

9 Aug

Finally to the haul portion of my trip. I must admit that I spent quite a bit of money but I only spent it on items that are hard to find or is expensive back in Edmonton. Cheers for cute asian items for cheap!

As you can tell a some asian beauty items, lunch boxes, stationary, candy at the bottom, and some other items. One of the cellphone straps is for my friend. Guess which one it is?
