Move to Wordpress

I'm thinking of moving to Wordpress...



...actually, I already moved everything there!

( my blog at wordpress )


It's so much more organized, and I can be bothered to customize the theme over and over again every time I change my mood, which can be both good and bad. But I do like the organized interface better.
Now I have the dilemma of deciding what to do with this blog. I really should stop moving so much. =___=. I don't want to just delete it either... maybe I'll keep this mainly for reviews? Not sure yet, but I did waste my many hours last night and today moving everything. I guess I'll just leave everything be for now.

New phone



[ The backstory ] 
About three days ago my refurbished HTC Panache went into a deep coma (it hasn't woken up since). So I visited the Mobilicity booth at the mall, only to told that my warranty had expired six months ago. I didn't even know that the warranty for refurbished phones was only six months. Imagine my disappointment. To my ire, I then got redirected to Pmall by the guy working at the booth. He suggested getting it checked out there.
So yesterday I went to Pmall before my 4pm class... left my phone for a check up, looked around for new phone prices, and then went on ahead to class. I was feeling quite productive (since I woke up early and actually was sticking to plans...) until I returned to Pmall at 7:30pm, only to be told that NOPE! my phone was unfixable. *flip table* To top that off, commuting back from Pmall was terrible. Not only did it start to snow, but I was also wearing my lighter boots in expectation of light rain so I was cold. And then (!) I kept making the wrong choices of getting off busses to take other routes. The busses ended up taking longer, making the route-change decision a fail every time. *huff* anyway...

[ Today ]
I went out to get myself a Samsung Galaxy Nexus - the same one my sister got during the Boxing Day sales. I ended up buying it for about $373 (including tax). My wallet = hurt. During the commute back I fiddled with the phone, slowly customizing it... which slowly numbed the wound by charming me with its cool features and outlook, lol. By the time I reached home, my brain had already filed away the fact that I spent almost $400 on a phone. Now $400 for a good phone is not a bad deal. But spending $400 on ANYTHING, especially now at a time when I am saving to go to Korea, is BAD (for me). I could have spent $400 on a good jacket two years ago and felt great about enjoying it, but right now... I'm just *grimace*.










Anyway, I like the phone... definitely a step up from my previous phones! And also, I am finally out of my HTC phone-streak! Third time's the charm? lol. I can also finally try Anipang, which I'd been wanting to try ever since that Shinhwa Broadcast episode featured it and from that time I saw a classmate playing it in school D: except... I tried it now, and I'm really bad at it. LOL. I guess that fever's over!

Perhaps I'll go get a cover for it tomorrow... it will need the protection (what ever little it may be)... especially in the hands of clumsy ol' me! Maybe I'll get it screen protected too. >< Phone #2 even had a dent in the screen, and that too within 11 months of use! >_<.

Please survive for at least three years, new phone. kthanks.

Beauty Hangout with C~





Last Saturday I went over to my friend Charlene's house. It was Reading Week (although I did no reading...) and we had decided that I would come over to her place, we'd make ourselves up, and then head to Pmall to get her dress fitted (for a ball). The plan also included me coming back to her place after our Pmall trip, and us having a beauty chilling session.

So I brought a bagful of my beauty products - skincare, makeup, hair curling wand, sister's dslr camera, etc. and we had ourselves a makeup session!


Here's my friend of nine years, Charlene! :)

She's actually wearing Missha bb cream, my Everyday Minerals powder, a little blush, and her Revlon lip butter! More than one item! Omg! xP

I lent my Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream (#21) to Charlene since her skin type is similar to mine. She also let me play doll and curl her hair and put some blush on her, lol. (She doesn't usually wear anything more than foundation, so it's a little bit of a big deal)

And here's me! :)
We're actually both wearing the same bb cream and powder, yet I'm so much more yellow, LOL.



Usually I'm the one with the curled hair but that day I didn't feel like it. My hair was so flat and my bangs were messed up T_T. I suppose this would be a good moment to document my current hair length. It's at this length now, which I consider short, sigh. Wish it'd grow faster. But anyway,


Charlene helped me with taking pictures of my products that day. Sigh. I'm so lazy about it, but knowing that her place has better lighting I figured I might as well take advantage of the opportunity. I brought over my sister's huge camera and everything, but -- batteries ran out. =______=;;; So, I ended up borrowing HER sister's camera, which was nice of her :)


Charlene took this picture for her instagram while I was taking my pictures, lol

Finally after two hours of me stalling and doing her cousin's eyebrows and what not, we left for the Pmall errand. But not before taking selcas! :P We really don't have enough pictures together.




After we got back and ate, of course the first thing we did was take off our makeup! Taking off makeup and having a clean face is always such a spirit refresher when you get back home. That day I'd brought over a lot of my recently bought skincare products and was feeling excited about it, so I somewhat coerced Charlene into trying them too, haha.

And after that, we finally used the free Rice sheet masks we'd got from the Face Shop the weekend earlier. She bought her Mango lotion from there that day so she got the same one too!

The Face Shop masks don't fit our face well, ROAR! D8<


Did I mention Charlene has a lava lamp? Who has lava lamps nowadays?! Hardly anyone! *__* I wanted one last semester when my eyes would zone out too much *__*. Wanted something animated in the background. Reggie solved that problem by gifting me a betta fish though, haha. The lava lamp was given to her by her cousin apparently. I made her turn it on for me before we left for Pmall. She hadn't turned it on in years, so it was taking extra long warming up. By the time we came back it was fit and blob-y though! So cool :P


Off
On


That was pretty much what we did that day. Not a lot, but it was an easy-going chill time. The times we hang out it seems like the time passes really fast, and we hardly end up doing much, lmao. We're not very exciting people, haha! but that's okay. ;P

Review: Etude House - Collagen Moistfull Essence-in Primer



Etude House Collagen Moistfull Essence-In Primer




I ordered this primer from Sasa online, back in December. It was cheaper than eBay by a couple dollars. I think this essence-in primer has been out for quite a while now, since I've seen this Etude House packaging here and there. I bought this because earlier in the winter months I was having really dry skin, and my makeup would almost always just dry up and become flaky. After using this though, my powder foundation stayed on longer (and looked better too!), and also, my skin was more hydrated during the day.

This primer essence is a dual product, so it hydrates like an essence would, and helps makeup stay on like a primer would. Kind of great for people with dry skin, I'd say.

Review: The FACE Shop - Brightening Cleansing Oil



Brightening Cleansing Oil (with Prune)

- - from the OIL SPECIALIST series

I got this cleansing oil a week ago at The FACE Shop store in Pacific Mall (Pmall). I wasn't intending on buying anything there when I went with my friends, but I suppose I got sucked into the appeal of a whitening, brightening cleansing oil. I was looking for a whitening product of some sort, since I recently decided to try whitening my face again (to even out the skin tone). But I was also kind of eyeing cleansing oils ever since I saw the Korean beauty show with Eugene of S.E.S. where they were featuring skincare for dry skin.


Review: The FACE Shop - Chia Seed Collection

Chia Seed Water 100 Series


Recently my friend, Charlene, found this new Chia Seed collection in a beauty boutique in northern K-town. She first bought the Chia Seed Toner, and then also decided to try out the Eye essence. Then a few weeks later we found that The Face Shop had a store in Pacific Mall as well. Since I was running low on moisturizer, I decided to indulge in the Watery Lotion myself.

Here I will slightly review three products from this line.

Hair & Bangs

It's been a while since I last posted on this blog. What happened? Laziness struck again! That, and with the shifting homes and with school in session and all... yeah. Anyhow, lots of things have happened between now and last summer. But at the same time, not a lot of things have happened that I could excitingly speak about.

Currently I'm just plain bored with my look - face, hair, and all. But that is also partially due to the fact that I cut my hair shorter. Short hair always makes me feel less. I miss having somewhat medium-long hair. The hair length is one thing, but the other problem is my bangs!! I just had to go and get my bangs cut short again! I swear -- every time for the past, like what, three times I've gotten my bangs cut - they've been too short!! And then I end up putting it up for most of the time, and it grows out weird again! Annoyance, really.
