Early Present + The Hunger Games


     In three days it'll be my birthday. I got an early birthday gift from my boyfriend. He kept saying he's getting me something ridiculous like a rock all of yesterday and I was expecting a Coach bag, Playstation 3, or the like. Instead, he got me a Louis Vuitton purse. My reaction is he could be trolling hardcore! Exactly when I received the big brown bag. As I opened the package to reveal the Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM in the monogram print. I simply can't accept such a gift from him for my birthday and anniversary, but he wouldn't have it. I was completely caught off guard since he's the one that's terrible with gifts. I simply cannot express how grateful I am to be blessed with someone like him. I'd like to share a bit of why I am so attached to one person; emotionally, mentally, and physically. I don't expect people to fully grasp where I am coming from not even slightly comprehend. It's just that he's someone who has been there for me in my darkest hours of life so far. When I was at my lowest point and despite me pushing him away, he always caught my back. Regardless of third persons negative opinions he stood by me and I really feel happy to have someone care that much about me. Thank you, Pretty Princess.

I like the monogram print over the damier ebene and azur. It's just a matter of preference. Please don't go saying mean things.


     He gave me white chocolate Toboram too.. I feel guilty for eating most of it! But it tasted too good, it's my guilty pleasure. We prepared already spegati and watched The Breakout Kings again. My serving is way less then his. He's such a pig, my pig.

**SPOILERS FOR THE HUNGER GAMES AHEAD**

     Moreover, we went to catch The Hunger games and if you don't know what that is... your missing out. I haven't read the series because I only read a specific genre of books. Often fellow readers like myself agree the book is better then cinematic version. Which holds true to most movie based books if you were to ask me.

     Overall, the movie was superb, but if we we're to talk about the special effects it was amateur. I mean all the action scenes and some of the normal scenes were shaky! I mean come on. A highly anticipated movie such as The Hunger games should be give more better quality dramatic effects. The reason why Kaito was at such a desperate end could of been explained further as well as the relationship between Rue and the boy in the same district as her. Even the suspect villain turns out to have a heart and the chairman who looks like a kind old man turns out to be the villain.

     During the moment when Rue died, my eyes filled with tears, I tried hard to hold back the water works. Especially when I thought Katniss and Peter were to commit lovers suicide like the ionic star crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. I am pleased that the ending did not cut to credits right away after the winners were crowned. I'm curious as to how the sequel turns out. I would urge people who have not read or watched The Hunger games to please do. It's worth all the hype.

Recently, I was contacted to do a sponsored review and if a goes well, you guys will see everything.

Tues To Weds


     I had to go to my local mall for my brother’s eye appointment on Tuesday. I tagged along to go to Fabricland to look for my backdrop and various other items.

     While browsing the selections of all the texitiles. I drifted to the clearance section and my eyes saw a perfect print for the back drop. It came to $4/m. I only needed 1m. It’s a tea stained colour with lines running through with little red roses printed as well.
Rant: Seacret Dead Sea man
   Eventually I was carrying four bags that were fairly heavy with my 3-3.5 inche heels on my way around the mall. Note, I don't have arm muscles to or the strong legs to support such a weight (weakling I know!). This man from Seacret Dead Sea stopped me and at first politely asked if I wanted to try the product. I declined, but I was tricked into going back as he said, “Can you please come back…” I’d feel like a big bum if I just walked off like that. I walked back to him, he took my hand and said, “Oh your nails are beautiful, but if your nails are this beautiful you want your hands to be right?” I’m like yes I know my hands are dry it’s because I wash them constantly, the weather is freezing, I needed a major exfoliating session, and frankly since I wash my hands often I find applying hand cream a waste sometimes. 

     Moreover, I don't like it when people touch me, espcially strangers that are jerks. He kept being pushy saying sugar coated lies that were a bit too personal for my taste, “Oh what a beautiful name,” “Got busy yesterday with the boyfriend eh,” “it’s only $90 online, but today there is a deal for $59.99.” I kept telling him, “No, I don’t need it. I have a lot of beauty products at home which I haven’t even touched yet,” but no this guy wouldn't back off. He kept saying, "When was the last time you were impressed?!" well no don't put words in my mouth and I was getting extremely irritated with this man. I walked off in his mid-sentence of trying to push me into an impulsive buy. He was just so darn in-my-space, pushy. Enough that I could smell his bad breath. The price is $49.95 on the website, he said it was $90 dollars on the website. The particular product is the Salt Scrub. 

     Now, not only is he a pushy creep, he's a sleaze ball of scumbags-pushy creep. Furthermore, he said the exact same lines to my neighbour that came with. On the other side, the exfoliant he used on my hand and the cream, did make my hands feel soft. I don’t know if I would shell out for a new emerging company like Seacret Dead Sea because I think the price is a bit too step not relevant to the brand and product. As I could use Epsom salt instead as my expoliant. They always find heterosexual males for these booth-beauty jobs. I think it’s a ploy for woman to be impulsive about their buys. I'll probably never buy from them; as first impressions make an impact and this was not a good one. They have such people representing them, it gives the company itself a bad image.

A Vietnamese drink my mom made, it's really sweet :D!

Shang-hai Noodles

I'm eating grilled chickenm  fish, omelet and rice. Finished only 1/2.
 
     There is this supposed tripod at my house. Everyone says there is one at home, but no one helps to find it with me. Then they say why I'm going to buy one.... I hope I find it soon. I need to look for lighting now.

Pleasant Day with my Pretty Princess

     Finally a new update on my face! Haha. Just dropping by to show the most delicious thing that has graced it's taste upon my stomach. I got a pulled pork burger and it's a novelty here since there are not many places like in the U.S.A. I like the taste of the sandwich being sweet, but sour at the same time. I don't think I'd eat this on a regular basis, but as a once in a while treat. I recommend you guys to try one out if you can. Soon, it'll be my birthday and planning to celebrate with my Pretty Princess, nothing big or spectacular. I don't like surprise gifts much since, it's like sometimes I don't get the gift I was expecting. I'd much rather give people a list of items I want and then they can choose which one to give me. Am I being too practical? Since, if I won't like or maybe need it, most likely it'll be thrown away. Unless someone really knows me to the core and can just guess what I really want then that's cool -but I doubt it. Decisiveness is one of my less points because I just like to be 100% sure about my decisions, I tend to go back and forth. You could say, I'm just extra cautious....
ONE CAN NEVER BE TOO SURE!

Indeed, this how I spent my Saturday.

Soon, precious, soon

     My birthday is coming up soon and I haven't put too much thought in what I really want. I guess I'll sort my thoughts out here... for the world to know -cause that's not creepy right? Back to the topic of birthdays, but specifically mine; I don't even want a party, I'm not much of a party person or at least I don't want to. I mean, I don't indulge in drinking nor plan to ever and that applies to smoking and drugs too. Those are just my morals and beliefs. I'm too straight laced, but it can't be helped; I'm fine with it. The parties I think of usually have that or just people eating out, movies, etc, etc. I just want to spend time with Pretty Princess really.

     Moving on, I'll just tell you guys I do want to make YouTube videos, but I'm picky about the quality of my videos. You can even call me a perfectionist in that sense. I want to get a tripod for my camera to film! Also, maybe a backdrop because the background is too bland for my taste. I don't know how I'm going to DIY my own stand, but I'll try to make it work somehow! I just want one to drape the fabric I'll purchase for the background. Nothing too fancy. I'm not sure what I'll be doing about the lighting. Everything is just a vague idea as of now, but one I want to pursue. I like to do things that would fit my own taste and give a glimpse of who I am as an individual -slightly vain, optimistic, blunt, and apparently a perfectionist too *sarcasm intended*. That would be the reason my previous videos are deleted because the quality of them were just bad. Don't get me wrong, I like videos that are more laid back by a lot of beauty gurus, but I don't think it works for me too much. I don't have the air not power for it. Often at times, I ponder how will I do a tutorial if I can't see myself. I hope you guys can support me! I mean it would be cool if you could, you know?! Hopefully it works out.

Red X - object aka me
Grey rounded rectangle - a possible table
Triangles - lights
Circle - Camera+Tripod

This is so far what I envision for it. 


What I want for my birthday:

  • Tripod for my camera
  • Heels
    • Nude plateform
    • Black Mary Jane styled heels
    • Taupe wedges
  • Light coat for summer
  • Wallet
    • Coach, Madison Leather double-zip accordion zip wallet in brass parahment
    • Louis Vuitton, zippy wallet in pomme 
    • Coach, Madison patent small wristlet in B4/orchid
  • Bag
    • Coach, Madison leather flap carryall in black/silver


Typical girl things, mostly.

     Most likely I won't receive all of them, but a select few and that's fine too. I'm a happy camper both ways. I just like making wish lists as to organize my thoughts and lay out a small plan.

     Yes, yes it's just too sunny here for my preference. Thus, I hide from the sun. Applying sunscreen often is redundant and I'm lazy. So... hiding it is with a jacket!

❤ { Spring birds } ❤

     I convinced mother dearest to take me to the store to purchase a few items. I ended up with 3 or 4 if you count the blouse. Since that particular top is suppose to belong to my mom. I don't mind stealing borrowing from her since I can wear a bit oversized clothing. I really like the style where a bow is tied to finish the look and collared shirts. To me they fit in the same category of trend.

   
     I couldn't find a normal cardigan... picked up a that gives off a baggy look. Just a plain black cardigan otherwise because I keep losing my black tops that are used to go over a tank top and etc.


     I found the loveliest long skirt, it's in a nude to cream colour range, I can't quite put my finger on it. It reaches past my knees and there is a slit at the back right in the middle. I'm not sure what to pair this with yet, but I'm going to have a look in what I already have. I saw a lot of waterfall skirts and just long flowy skirts in general at the store. That trend just didn't click with me, I probably won't try it, but who knows. I feel like it'll be kinda sad to see me in one of those since I'm not too tall. Sure it'll make you appear tall, but what happens when you stand next to someone who is actually tall and they wear it. I'd feel miniature and I like feeling being tall! 


     These knee high socks came in the same packet. I already have a few black knee highs, but no nude to cream colour knee highs. I picked these up due to the lighter pair. Funny thing, I was just jotting down a wish list of clothing to get in class and knee highs in a taupe colour were on it. To me, this is close enough.


     Just my binder for school pictured, I find everything gets too messy once too many things are added. I like to keep things visually bare and simply.

__________________________________________________________________________

     I recently quit serving in my school's cafeteria due to it just got boring. I mean it was nice to get free lunch and hours, but I finished my hours long time ago. I just went for free lunch and the company. I just want to chill in my school's library, I wish my school included more comfortable places to sit or lay down. Sometimes, I just wish to sleep on my lunch to catch up on some extra beauty rest. Talking about school, I feel like a Eskimo because I stay covered up in the hotter weather. I just generally don't want any sun time since I'm way too paranoid of tanning, sun spots, ageing rapidly, cancer, and general negative affects of being in the sun too long. You don't need more then 15 minutes under direct sun too! Since the weather is getting hotter, don't forget your sun protection and yes even for your face. I never walk out my house without it. You should re-apply while out, but of course I understand there are difficulties in the area since not a lot of products made for people who wear makeup. Yes there are powders and such, but what if you happen to not wear that certain product, but other products.

♡ Resting ♡

How my March break went...

     I play Kazuya and Juri in Street Fighter x Tekken. I pretty much suck, but I enjoy it. My boyfriend who sucks ... beats me, so ya... We ended up playing this for basically the first half of March break then moved onto two seasons of 1000 Ways to Die for the second half. 


      These are pictures of a Tappanyaki place we went to for my boyfriend's dad birthday. Tappanyaki  is esstenially an open grill where the chif cooks food live for you. Basically live cooking, but of course it's a selected menu already. This place doubles as a sushi place too.








Not buns on the grill, but mushrooms!




I took home 1/3 of the cake because the other guests couldn't make it.... I'M SUPPOSE TO BE ON A DIET!
My life is too exciting.

♡ Hello Tekken ♡

Gift I use to "hit" my boyfriend with 
     The Hello Kitty balloon and a card (not pictured) was a gift to me from my dearest Pretty Princess. As me and him celebrate monthly anniversary and it was due to his insistence that we do. He finally gotten me one of these types of balloons and the first one which was on my birthday flew away. While we were walking to the bus stop! The winds were so fierce, I was barely able to walk. Finally, almost a year later I have a second one! I utilize my gift by bashing it on him... hehehe! When he need discipline and get your head out of the gutters!


     I went straight to my boyfriend's house and he was just so keen on me playing a certain game, I finally gave in. He really insisted that I also used a fighting stick to play Street Fighter X Tekken on PS3, I mean I like the controller, but it was easier to just recognize the buttons. Harder to actually move, I'm not loving the joy stick too much. He's teaching me how to play since he has two fighting sticks, so why not use both? I actually like and I'm not fond of first person shooters (FPS), turn based game play, rotating camera features, and fighters. I'm going to go look this up so I can decide who I should play tomorrow.

     We went out to for a bit and he took me around. I didn't bring my jacket and I think I'm sick since I've been constantly sneezing and have a runny nose. I mean come on! Really, on March Break :(.

Look forward for a tag post, skincare, and most used products + extras! I have it all scheduled. 

That's how my Friday went...

❤ { REVIEW: LIOELE BRUSH PEN EYE-LEINER } ❤

     Hello people of the internet world. I would like to just drop another review here. I'll be looking at the Lioele Brush pen eye-liner in black. I got a chance to pick this up in the store for $14 CAD. I want to say this is my holy grail (HG) eyeliner so far. I like the fact it comes off with water and when it does come of, there is none of that messy smearing!




Freshly swatched, left side is one coat and right side is 2-4 coats

Ran under water for 20 seconds, none of it "melted"

I rubbed with tissue once

After 3-6 furious rubbing of the tissue on the eyeliner
No indication of it budging 

Lioele is a Korean brand of makeup and has been gaining it's fame on the internet recently. They catch the eyes of people like me with the high quality of products combined with a cute exterior. It helps a lot that the prices are not insanely high.

Colour
 
     The colour when on applied once is a faded gray, but that can be easily fixed by going over a few more times to achieve desired opacity. It doesn't clump if you apply about 3-4 times as where some eyeliner have some nasty build up after. Since the first coat is quite thin. I don't mind that personally, but if you are picky about it, I don't think this is for you. 

Longevity 
     This liner stays on no matter how much or hard I try to smudge and smear it. Given you have to let it set which is a few seconds to a minute. I even asked a couple of my friends to try it and they were amazed! This is extremely oil-proof. However, when water is added into this equation the liner fades, but in a good way. This could be a pro or con depending on the person, to me it's a pro. Where there isn't a trace of the lines that are being smeared and smudged. I love that about this liner, I can cry and not have panda eyes! To remove you must have a excellent make-up remover or water and soap. I get mine off by cleansing my face.

Packaging
    The packaging of this product is compact, where it fits easily in a smaller make-up bag. I like that it's simple and not some weird shape. The tip is a brush which gives it a sleek look. The tip is refined. The box of it, hands it an air of a princess. I like it!

Precision
     I was told that my eyeliner was getting too thin by a friend who use to say I lined my eyes too thick. This can give you a very precise line, but you have to be careful. If there are mistakes it can't be easily fixed. Your make-up might run since you have to use lotion, water or just a q-tip to correct the booboo. I dare say, I am getting pretty stellar in my ability to apply eye-liner especially with such an easy tool.

Overall
     This is a great eyeliner, I would definitely repurchase this. I might not since I've been hearing such great reviews on another certain eyeliner. If you are treading the waters of eyeliners and don't want yours to look like you got two black eyes, try this. If it helps, line your eyes with an eyeliner brush dabbed in an eyeshadow to be the guide line. This doesn't smudge at all like any of the eyeliner I've tried. I would get specks of transfer by the end of the day or it would be easily flaked off.

♡ Here, again ♡

What my mother got!




     I ended up ordering the Pho Ga, Bo Vien which is the Chicken and Beef Balls Pho. I usually once in a blue moon eat pho because I don't like it too much. My family usually gets it. Funny, everyone got something that looked very appetizing unlike me.

     Funny story happened when I was at pho, the waiter hit on me, proceeded to ask my age and stuff. As I was helping my brother to the wash room. Awkward...I left to go purchase bubble tea and my mother he asked my farther if he could date me. I don't know if that is knowing shameless or extremely courageous to do such a thing. I lean to the more conservative side for these types of opinions, this might not match with other people.

Large, Green Tea Lychee with Tapioca

Cute dog? 
That's how my Sunday went. Pretty average.
