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.

Just an Ordinary Day

15 Dec

As so stated, nothing really exciting happened. I actually planned to go to Northgate Mall but ended up going to City Center because Hue was going to the U and wanted me to show her the place that sells the best frozen yogurt. Well, I got some frozen yogurt so that is positive… next time I’m going to try peach but out of the ones that I have tried I liked (note the past tense) strawberry the best.

When I was at City Center though I found some things that I would totally love to pick up. Mainly one of the Body Shops eyeshadows. It was a shimmering white powder!! I finally found one! And it’s $12 CDN so it ain’t so bad I suppose as compared to MAC ones… which are $17.50 for one and $13 in pan form… pricey but it’s worth it… pigmentation wise is pretty good. Not very sheer like most whites are very positive, so if it is available at the WEM location then I will go and pick some up on the day that I go out to WEM… which is this coming Mon. Yeah, positive.

There is going to be so many things that I want to get at WEM I’m pretty excited so I can’t wait to go. Yay!

Tomorrow, I am going to LUSH on Whyte Ave. though I hope that they open at 10 or something like that… I wouldn’t want to stand outside in the cold for so long… I want to get Grease Lightening for my acne even though currently my acne flare-ups have gone down there is still some wanting to pop up… and I’m still left over from the scars so hopefully it will help. Google Maps is totally your friend.

I am going to meet my brothers girlfriend on Fri and we are going to go shopping on Mon @ WEM with my brother there. Yay! Positive. I’m in the process of making up my shopping list for Mon so I hope to get that all done before going to watch the Xmas themed episode of NCIS!! YAY!!! I love the interacting between Gibbs and Abbey so cool!

Anyways, that will be much of today… it wasn’t as cold as I thought it was today so that is a positive thing… ugh, gotta clean my desk before after it has become a warzone.

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!!

Working hard

2 Dec

I told myself that I was going to reduce my spending after spending so much money in November alone but now LUSH is tempting me again. The massage bars are the ones that are tempting me…. I’m thinking either the Strawberry Feels Forever or the Therapy or Each Peach. If you get two bars you get the massage bar tin for free, each bar is $8.95CDN. When I thought about it I actually have tins from the Christmas cookie that I got from the Dollarstore but I want to smell the massage bars first before I buy. Smell is very important I don’t want to put something on me without liking the smell because you will smell like the bar after using it. Also thinking about the Tea Tree Toner Tab $1.50CDN to use though I would have no idea how to use it. I am going to become a LUSH junkie.

But other than me being tempted I went to Kingsway yesterday and the new mall looks good I took pictures of their decorations I want to go back to get some more photos. The Fruits & Passion did not have the Fragrance trio that I was looking for so sad so I have to go to WEM this Thursday to see if they got the trio in stock or not. Ugh, I hate long bus rides.

Well, studying chemistry is really hard work. So much that I don’t remember that is really bad the final exam is like next week. >.< I’ll do my best!! Studying is going to take over my life so I’m actually planning not to go to Fri class or maybe I should be there physically but I really have to study. Curse the fact that the gradings are taking place this week…. rawr!

Staying home most of the time…. Fri I still have to come due to Adolphson’s extra class thingie majig. Mon, I think I just might stay home and study… I don’t want to go to school but home distracts me too. I’ll be a hermit for the following week for sure. Haha…

Handed out most of my presents today… I just now have to hand out Yoon Sun’s present to her tomorrow?? I’m going to Facebook her and ask her to come tomorrow. I won’t leave for WEM until I have handed her the present. Afterall, I worked so hard to go and get the presents and much thought was put behind each one. I got presents from Koreen and I totally wasn’t expecting one from Gigi!! That was so shocking!! So now we are Facebook friends which is great because I don’t know when we’ll all see each other again.

STUDY TIME!! Hwaiting!
