A Weekend at Home

Last weekend I spent a lot of time with friends which was nice! It's hard to meet up with friends when I'm away at school.. it was a nice breath of fresh air.

We ate a lot of good food, but the highlight was when we went for curry (so good omg;;)(*´艸`*).

I also spent Saturday night over at a friend's house, we played League of Legends until the wee hours of the morning and a lot of time was spent playing with his cute puppy Ghost!

He's a collie/golden retriever mix. He's super hyper and jumps around so it was hard getting pictures with my mediocre camera! 〇| ̄|_

I also finally got my copy of Skyrim, which I had forgotten at home because I rushed when I was packing to go back home.. ╭(๑¯⌓¯๑)╮

I play a Khajit! I'm gonna loot and pickpocket and sneak up on people.. ヾ(。◣∀◢。)ノ I can't wait!

Yesterday I went to Pacific Mall with my friend Asuka. I was really excited because I haven't been to Pmall in FOREVER and this time I'd be able to get some insight on things I normally wouldn't try because I had someone with me who can read japanese. (ง´▽`)ง

We opted for the cheap route, which was 3$ one-way, taking a variety of bus and subway routes. It took about an hour and a half to get there, but I don't mind because it saved us a lot of money! I usually don't buy a lot of things from there though, as it's really expensive. I actually spent most of my money on food!

I usually get peach or pineapple flavoured bubble tea. I've also taken a liking to tapioca after Asuka poo-poo'd me having jelly instead. Like with actual tea, I don't like milk added since it changes to a weird consistency for me. (Although Asuka's milk bubble tea looks a lot cuter...( ̄へ ̄))

I bought these delicious chocolates while I was there. The texture is so soft and it really melts in your mouth! Apparently you can only get them during the winter season.

The smell of these crackers (chips?) is a little fishy, but they don't taste fishy at all! They're super crunchy too, which I like. I also love the cute images on the back. ♥

This smells super creamy and sweet! You can definitely smell the milky flavours and it tastes sweet too! The packaging is so cute!

I also had some delicious udon for dinner! I love the thick udon noodles, so I know I'll be buying them when I move out someday! I'm still not very good with me chopsticks though, but I think I'm slowly getting better!

I think my favourite hobby is eating... I love the different tastes and smells of food!

EOS: evolution of smooth lip balm

I have been wanting to try the eos lip balms for forever now! I finally managed to get my hands on one. (ง´▽`)ง

Evolution of Smooth has been a popular brand for a while now, I remember first hearing it on Michelle Phan's YouTube. I think they're most famous for their lip balms, which feature an interesting shape for their product. It's a lot more interesting than the standard stick. They come in multiple colours and flavours!

Here's the eos website!

The flavour I got is called Summer Fruit. It's apparently 100% natural and 95% organic (so it DOESN'T have any nasty parabens and petrolatum free). Although this one doesn't have SPF, I know there are other flavours that do contain it.

The shape is very interesting because it's round! The texture of the case is a smooth rubber; it feels really nice on the fingers. (〃∇〃) The little indent you see above is where you put your thumb! It feels really comfortable in your hand and I'm not afraid of dropping it at all! 

As you can see, it's a twist-off cap. This is nice because you know it'll never come undone. It also makes a satisfying 'click' noise when it's properly closed. I have to say though, the colour of the actual product isn't as yellow in real life, and appears more of a banana colour (not the peel haha)!

The smell is absolutely heavenly, and tastes very nice too! •*¨*•.¸¸♪✧ I'd like to try the other flavours sometime!

It applies very smoothly and leaves your lips feeling refreshed and relieved of chapped lips! I'd say my lips stay smooth for most of the day, but sometimes during the winter I need to apply more than usual since the air is so dry..

Needless to say I'd recommend this to anyone! I know this'll be my go-to lip balm from now on. (*´艸`*)

Until next time!

Goals for 2012

Some of my wishes for the new year! I'm going to try my best and improve in these areas!

  1. Fashion and style. I want to learn different more hairstyles and expand my makeup collection. I need to learn how to wear different looks, so that I look a little more polished for each occasion. ( ˘・з・) It would also be nice if I could improve my wardrobe a bit.. and buy outfits rather than mix matched pieces.
  2. Work habits. I need to quit procrastinating and focus more on my studies. ヽ(`Д´)ノ
  3. Peace of mind. I want to try and stop getting jealous over small things and start being happy for the achievements of others.  Especially when it comes to looks. ヾ(・ε・。)
  4. Lifestyle. Basically stop being a lazy bum and start exercising more often! ┌(_Д_┌ )┐
I think these are the main ones.. but here are some smaller ones that I know I can achieve:
  • expand vocabulary and practice speaking correctly.
  • be a little more social
  • make my blog a little nicer (I think I might need help with that)
  • learn my best angles when posing.. learn how to smile in portrait pictures lol

Anyways, here's to wishing you a happy new year! May all your wishes come true.

Until next time!
