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.

Beauty Blogging

13 May

Back in the days where there weren’t as many beauty bloggers as today reviews used to be so in a sense ‘pure’.

People wrote honest reviews and would suggest great things for other people through the internet. All of that has now changed and in my view for the most part worse. Bloggers are now not so honest and pure as they were just 5 years ago.

Times sure has changed.

Now with Youtube at the forefront for beauty bloggers many bloggers are getting free products from companies and in turn for the free products are then asked to review their products in a “positive light”.

A while back there was an issue with a company’s products not being shown in a positive light. This incident involved beauty vlogger JuicyTuesday (a.k.a. Teresa) who recieved free clothing from Hot Miami Styles to try and review. Her review of some of the clothing sent were not so positive and the company asked her to take down the not so positive video. Here is her response:

And to be honest, I am glad that Teresa filmed this video because it does really show that she is sincere about her reviews and is not afraid of rebuttal from the other side.

I feel like I can’t watch product reviews anymore because you don’t know if the person is being sponsored ‘under the table’. I feel very disappointed in beauty bloggers on Youtube because they are young which means that they are not as knowledgable about the corrupted society that we live in. Still, I support these young bloggers for putting themselves out there and not being afraid to take criticism from anonymous people.

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.
