52. Long time no post! Food, goodies, makeup~ *IMG HEAVY*

Finally a day off after 4 days of work, and time to blog. <3 Here's some random goings-on so I don't end up writing an entire essay. :)


- Finally got my permit! IT'S ABOUT FUCKING TIME RIGHT!?
- Boyfriend gots himself an iPhone 4. White, of course. :D
- Found a steal on an '08 Prius for $19k, $750 down payment, $375/mo! :O
- Found an even better deal on '07 Prius, $17k!! O_O Gonna work the numbers today... <3
- Paid off CapitalOne, yay yay! Only $600 more to go lmao
- My package from kawaiimagic at AsiaJam arrived! I won the outfit contest we do on the forums, so I got a bunch of goodies! *hugs* with pictures of course :D
- I found out I won G-MARKET's Top Bloggers for April, YAY! I also won during their Spring Promotions, so I won W65,000 total о(ж>▽<)y ☆
- I can finally wear my lenses for long periods of time... they get a little irritated from time to time, but not unbearable that I have to take them out at work. Anyone have recommendations for good eye drops?


now on to PICTURE SPAM!!

Dinner a few nights ago, made by the boyfriend, and DELICIOUS! Made with garlic cream he made at work and shrimp, ugh, I want more!

Went to CHINA CHINA last night! We haven't eaten there in at least 2 years, missed it so much.

Tons of 김치 this time! We got 2 of the 3 usuals: 탕수육 (tangsuyuk) and 자장면 (jajangmyun) <3

To be honest, my favorite tangsuyuk is from Tong Soon Garden, it has pineapple! <3 I also looove those little brown-things in the middle, anyone know what it is?? My boyfriend doesn't know either (・・;)


Sooooooo yummy! If you haven't tried it before, you simply must!

My awesome Darth Maul chopsticks. >:D My boyfriend has Luke Skywalker, but mine are better because they turn into one giant chopstick :D

Sure, thanks. XD

My boyfriend made a crazy bread, alternating with butter cream, raspberry, blueberry fillings and yogurt cream!

Butter cream is my favorite!

I wish I can experiment with food, but at least I can eat his experiments. No wonder I'm getting fat!!


As I mentioned, I got a package from one of the girls at AsiaJam <3 I was so super excited to get it, thank you so much!!


Body butter from Boots! OMG they smell soooo good, and they actually leave my skin soft and moisturized for a long time :O I hope I can find more of these, I'm in love!

Super adorable pens! >w<

I love blingin' out my phone with tons of gaudy straps HAHA! I can't wait to use this! She says it's supposed to light up when you receive a call, but it doesn't work anymore. I wouldn't have even noticed if she didn't tell me, but it's still adorable anyway ^^

Super cute mini notepad!

BB CREAM!! THANK YOU! I really wanted to try these same ones too, yay! I can't wait :D

I LOVE this gloss! I wonder if this is a drugstore brand? The packaging is so cute and very sturdy. The gloss itself keeps my lips nice and moisturized for a long time, I love this so much, thank you!

Before, only lipbalm. Please excuse the redness and uneven skin, also not wearing any makeup!

After! <3 It actually made my lip color more of a baby pink without any lipstick :o Also smells yummy, like caramel taffy? xD


Same day, playing with my circle lenses and my boyfriend's camera. :D

I want to steal this from him. :O

I really, really, really need a haircut. Split ends galore. Not to mention I had to make my hair look crazy like this on purpose because the layers are all grown out and just look BLAHH.

YAYY Japanese plums are growing in my backyard again! Have you tried them? Again, SUPER YUMMY! They only last for about a month or two, so have to eat a lot of them! My dog likes to bite them off the branches too haha! But have to wait for them to ripen </3

Eeek, my eye is a little red >< But I love the effect of the lenses :D

I showed my boyfriend this picture since I never wore my lenses in front of him. He said I looked pretty >wwwwwwww< Nice change from him calling me fat all the time HAHA!


I suppose I'll just go ahead with a FOTD! My very first, yeah? :D

Etude House Dream On Base in #1 Mint Dream
Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream
MISSHA Perfect Cover BB Cream in No.23 (WAY too dark for me now!)
Castledew diacut Cheek in #2 Lovely Dia
Smashbox Highlighter

Castledew diacut Eyes in BE903 Shine Jewel Dia (Browns)
Peripera Very Nice Eyeliner in Black

So that's pretty much it for today. I'm probably going to switch out lenses and wear my CL21 Aquas instead. No one ever noticed when I wear them, except for the occasionally redness wahaha... Definitely my favorite everyday lens, even moreso than my Max Pure Browns :D

Now hopefully off to Hyundai dealership to drive off with a new car (er, used!) *crosses fingers*

51. Another new layout! *in progress*

Heya! I'm working on a brand new layout. What do you think? I really need to try and get away from all the pink though. And when I find time I want to make a new banner... The layout might be changing a lot, so watch out and let me know what you think. :D

So, it's almost 2:30am... I really should go to bed.

47. Eco-Friendly LOVE

My boyfriend's old teacher was in town yesterday, and she brought with her some gifts for us. She always has the most amazing gifts for us, because they're always eco-friendly in some way, which I absolutely love! She's so amazing, she works so hard to bring as much awareness as possible to her town about making it more environmentally conscious, and not to mention when we visit her she makes the most delicious lunch and dinner, and always vegetarian! Thank you! <3

Goody bag! Full of stuff from and the

Gotta love the Tsubasa google background haha!

Super cute PINK stainless steel bottle! I love these, I have them all over my house. Sadly my mom still buys tons of water bottles, so maybe I'll buy more of these bottles since we have a filter at home.

Reusable hand towel :D I think I'll start taking this with me to work. I'm always using paper towels and stuffing them in my apron to use again, but that's not very realistic because they're so thin.

Made from 99% recycled materials. Pull the string and it turns into a shopping bag!

I always forget to bring bags with me, so I try to opt for paper, but I don't think I'll have to worry about that any more. :)

Super adorable utensil set! XD

Cute card she gave me ^^

I wish I could've at least said hi to her yesterday, but I had work boo~ oh well, there's always next time right? ^^


46. L'Arc~en~Ciel

I really don't post enough, even if it's something random and stupid. I need to get around to posting some reviews up! I keep putting of the circle lens and CastleDew reviews because I'm lazy/unmotivated to do so. Blah, I'll do it eventually I keep saying, I'm sorry. ;__;


Any L'Arc~en~Ciel fangirls out there??
*raises hand*

So they released their Twenity Box Set about a month ago, but since I first heard about it I started hyperventilating because 1, it's L'Arc's entire discography, and 2, it comes with a tiny music box! There's 4 possible tunes you can get, but it's completely random. What are the possible songs?

Ever since I first discovered that song, it's been my absolute favorite by L'Arc. I want it SO SO SO SO BADLY! All the choices are amazing, but out of the possible XXX number of songs they've released, I couldn't believe they chose Anata. I would've expected a song like Pieces or 叙情詩 (Jyoujoushi). Actually, I would've been beyond happy to know those were chosen, but my mind is blown over Anata. <3

As of now, it's SOLD OUT on CD Japan and Yes Asia. I was shocked, but at the same time, the price was pretty reasonable, so of course it's gonna go fast. And of course, I start freaking out.

Here's where it gets a little funny. Well, it made me and my boyfriend laugh, anyway.

So I called Kinokuniya the other day looking for L'Arc's "Twenity" box set, and here's part of the "conversation", which made me and my boyfriend chuckle.

Kinokuniya! ---- desu. (I didn't catch her name)
Hi, I'm looking for a CD by L'Arc~en~Ciel
....Is, is that the artist?
Oh, um, ラルク アン シエル?
Oh! ラルク アン シエル! Okay, okay, just a moment prease! :D
Uhhhhhummm........... okay...... XD

They didn't have it, and wouldn't be getting any in. Bummer. Now I start freaking out because my dumb ass didn't get around to pre-ordering it when I had the chance months ago. He also checked a few other sites, but they didn't carry it at all. 

In the end, it worked out perfectly.

My boyfriend found this site called HMV Online. They're a company based in Japan, and lucky for me, they ship outside of Japan *whoot* And of course, they happened to have the box set! What's better, it's priced at 12,000円!

Sure as hell beats Yes Asia! Their price was over $200 if I remember correctly; probably around $230~ if I'm giving an exact guess, lol.

Shipping was only 2,400円, and they ship with EMS! In total, I paid $163.14. So I saved at least $40 + faster shipping than Yes Asia, and avoided the inflated cost of buying it from Kinokuniya if it were available, just to have it right away and thinking it was impossible to find elsewhere.

I also think this was a really good purchase since I haven't purchased a CD at full price in years. I know, I'm awful. I also LOVE collecting CDs, but I literally have 2 bins full of CDs because I have no where to put them. I can't keep myself away from Kinokuniya's clearance bin... you find some amazing treasures in there sometimes. My favorite is probably the Field of View albums I found for $3, WIN!

And just so this isn't boring you too much, here's some pictures of the guys. Enjoy ;)

I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession for Ken, but I toned it WAY down. The number of pictures I'd post on my Xanga of different Jrockers back in the day is almost embarrassing.

Can't ever resist Hyde doing something with his mouth. :D


I think this is the most fangirl-y post I've made since high school. Those days were fun, I miss them, but a little too crazy I think. Every day I had some sort of magazine with me. It wasn't so much "what outfit do I want to wear today?". It was "which magazine do I want to take to school today? What's In? Arena 37? Backstage Pass... CURE?" That was me throughout high school. //


Wow. I actually found a post of L'Arc I did back in 2005. SOOOO embarrassing looking back now, I'm not even sure I want to show it. But then again, it's been on the internet for years, so here's a little bit of the old me (not really, I'm still a hopeless fangirl in private):

*runs away*  

I'll start taking pictures for reviews soon! Let me know if there's anything you want reviews of. That might get me to actually do them haha.
