Review: ELF Clarifying Pressed Powder in Light Beige

17 Jun

Hello everyone! Almost through my ELF products jut one more left (blushes) and this little segment is done. On with the review!

Review: A surprise product for me I was really surprised how well it worked and it also didn’t break me out. As you can tell from the photo the powder is quite pigmented and luckily it’s just my shade. The texture is really smooth and just seems to glide onto my face. It does a decent job at controlling oil, I still have to blot but not as much as I used to. There is no scent at all which is great. What I dislike about this product is the packaging I feel that it’s pretty flimsy and can break easily if I took it on a trip but what was I expecting for a dollar? Overall a pretty good powder and a definate repurchase for me.

Cost: $1USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? Yes I would and I will be repurchasing for sure.

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.

Hello again…

23 Apr

Hello everyone! Shocking that I have not posted for quite some time right. It’s scandalous!!

 

So I just wanted to post that I am back I just had a bunch of exams (back-to-back kind ugh) and my laptop was again compromised. It took a trip to:

Los Angeles with my sister. She needed it to write stuff and the entire time I was wishing I had a desktop computer (which I will get one… in Aug). Anyways, I hope to be posting at the regular scheduled time intervals of Mon, Wed, and Fri perhaps more since I don’t have school anymore (just one more exam on Tues). Hope everyone is having a good day and a great long weekend!

Packing Nightmare

30 Jul

I personally hate, hate, HATE, packing for vacation/trips. All that mess and you can’t decide what you want to bring… ugh… I really dislike packing. Unpacking is okay just packing. I am very indecisive in what I want to bring and why I need to bring whatever it is I need to bring. So here is what I am packing for my trip.

Messy eh? Some of them are gifts (the ones in the front for my little cousins) so a bunch of clothes are packed away… I’m just waiting for some clothes to dry to pack away… and my snacks as well…

Hate packing for trips because you never know what you are going to need and you have to be prepared… especially with Canadian weather. >.<

Anyways, I’ll be gone for about a week but have scheduled posts… beauty and stuff like that so I’ll technically be here but not physically typing out new stuff.
