Spring is finally here! Several weeks ago I had some plans that had fell through. *COUGHCOUGHCATCAFECOUGHCOUGH*
Okay, remember when Purina had a big promo with this NYC Cat Cafe? I was planning on going. Unfortunately on the day I went I discovered that I had gone too late and I was denied all the cats and pettings. So instead of just going to the city and going home I did a few things and voila~ the day was not a complete fail!
I did manage to go to Ricky’s and purchase this Kracie Hadabisei Revitalizing Facial Mask & Cream Pack. It was about $20. But you can buy this on Amazon for $20 + shipping or you can purchase it on BeautyKat for like 15.99 idk about shipping though.

Heyyy! It’s been a while since I did a hair post. Honestly I’ve been working on a different post but it’s taking rather long for me to get the pictures that I need edited nicely soooo you are going to be hit with a not too picture heavy post here.
I had purchased this while I was still working at Ricky’s, but the break down of the prices are the Rejuvenating Shampoo is $21 and the Moisturizing Rinse (Conditioner) is $24.
Disclaimer: I purchased this with my own money & all opinions are my own.
Sorry for taking so long to finish these relatively short reviews – I’ve been adjusting my life schedule around my new full-time job, and as you can probably tell, I am failing :| hahahaaaaaah I have so little time nowadays augh
Anyway, I finally put the third mask pack on my face! HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS.
Read my previous reviews on the other masks in the set: apricot and kiwi.
The strawberry mask has a skin brightening effect. I don’t use products like that very often, but I never notice any difference when I do, so right off the bat I doubted I’d be able to see any results.
This mask doesn’t have the clumpy, pulpy bits the previous two did, and smells just like a strawberry milkshake. It pretty much feels like you’re putting yoghurt on your face. It smells delicious I had to actively stop myself from attempting to eat it.
The first thing I noticed when I rinsed it off was that a few of the pimples that had been growing on my face had dried up and shrunk. MOST EXCELLENT. Unfortunately, the mask had no other discernible effect. Of course it made my skin feel awesome, but there wasn’t anything that really made it stand out and my complexion looked exactly the same. In fact, it was pretty much just like the kiwi one except it smelled better. Boo. Next!
Ohh kay now it’s been a while since my last eyeliner review, Woe is Eyeliners. But now it’s time for another eyeliner review! This time it’s the Missha Super-Extreme Waterproof Eyeliner in black! This one retails for about $10 but I got it for $5 during the half off event last year. However Missha is selling it for $7 right now! So if you want to get it here. It’s lasted quite a while! But to be frank for a few months I haven’t exactly been wearing makeup in order to give my face some time to just relax back down and just less pimpley. This post has been a long time a-coming. However my first idea didn’t exactly pan out how I wanted so…. before I delay it for any longer here’s the review~~
Disclaimer: I purchased this with my own money. All opinions are my own!
I’ve been using Duo’s lash adhesive pretty much since I started wearing falsies, but was never 100% happy with it. The amount of time it takes to get tacky is just annoying, not to mention the fact that it smells like dead fish (please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks this!). I finally used up my tube a while ago, and have been relying on the little packs of adhesive that come packaged with lashes. All of them suck and I don’t know why lash companies bother including them. The other day I was walking to the subway and a drop of water fell on my eyelid. My lashes fell right off! Good thing I was on my way home after work. @_____@
I’ve been interested in the adhesives that have brush applicators, but until recently, Western brands haven’t really made any. So the last time I bought some clothes from Runway Channel, I decided to pick up the Jewerich Eyelash Keeper as well,
because it is pink for no reason at all >______>
So here’s the story. While scrolling through my instagram list I noticed that one of the pictures was locationally-tagged at a place called Panda Café. Basically I thought of a friend who is absolutely obsessed with pandas. That and I needed to go there. I looked it up as in where it is and a bit of the reviews on yelp, otherwise I was really going in with no expectations what-so-ever. So I made plans with Jessica to go there on a Saturday.
The place is located in Elmhurst, which isn’t too far from Queens Center Mall. On this fine day I drove there with Jessica because we wanted to save on metrocard money and I said I’d drop her off at her boyfriend’s with her heavy laptop. Surprisingly parking wasn’t a nightmare to find despite it being Saturday and thus we parked and away we go~
I spend about half the week at my boyfriend’s apartment, and lugging things back and forth is a real pain. Some time ago I had to bring over some clothing, and I’d wanted to bring my laptop as well because we’ve started playing Diablo III again (should I get the expansion? I feel like I’d need it if I want to continue having fun) and I’d prefer to join in rather than sit there and watch him play with our friends haha. But the only thing I had to transport it is a huge messenger bag, and it doesn’t fit in the tote I use to hold my clothes. I had to leave it behind that time because I wasn’t about to carry two giant bags plus my purse onto public transportation with me. So I decided to buy a laptop sleeve! I wanted a cute one with a pocket for my power cord and mouse, and eventually stumbled across this one by Babimini on Etsy. It was adorable but a bit pricey, so I added it to my favorites but held off in hopes of finding something cheaper. I never did find one that fit my 15.6″ laptop (and had a pocket) that I quite liked as much as this one though, so after I filed my tax return, I indulged myself.
Oy. It seems that I am a fail. A very big fail. Basically I have a whole bunch of stuff that I would love to write about, more product reviews. But it’s getting a little boring. So how about a life update?!
(No pictures because I am just super lazy)
Now the thing about me and life updates is that… there really isn’t much to my life. Well that is besides starting that new job, where I basically organize things that have to do with medical records. It’s very ~hush hush~ so I’m not gonna go further than what I’ve said so far. It’s exciting and troubling to know that any mistakes I make will be rather permanent. It’s extremely nerve wracking and I did make a few mistakes in front of one of the managers there so….. :( :(
On the brighter side I do have more time for things. Such as typing up more blog posts! Okay I was trying my hardest on this one about this Goldwell product that I’ve been using, and loving! But my hair just loves to give me issues. My hair has never been super curly, just wavy enough that sometimes it gets curls. But I’m pretty sure its processed to the point that it has just given up curls so… it just limply waves.
Also my face is clearing up so much!! I’ll make a skin care routine post one of these days. But I am sooo glad for this. It’s been hard to just not to smear a whole bunch of anti-acne products on my face and hope that it goes away!
FYI I have a very long list of things that I need to review but I’m a lazy butt and it’s so cold that all I want to do is curl up in a ball and not do anything. This is also why I am gaining the weight~ But I’m getting back on my workout grind so hopefully I can get myself to a healthier eating schedule soon too.
What’s up with you guyss? :D :D :D
Clio is this really fun make up line in South Korea. If you know who Dara from 2NE1 is, she’s basically the face of Clio at the moment. Previously it used to be Lee Hyori, the queen. FYI: I want to be her because she is basically an amazing person. But this is from a while ago and I totally forgot that I had this on my camera.
Clio is not by any means a cheap store. It is pricey however they did have several deals But I did get a bunch of stuff
I don’t know how widespread of an event this is, but I know several big cities in the US participate in Restaurant Week. I believe it started in New York though! The idea behind it is that participating restaurants offer prix fixe lunches and dinners for a set price. Last year they raised the prices to $25 lunches and $38 dinners, but even so, it’s still often an opportunity to try out places that would normally be out of your budget! In NYC, it happens twice a year, during the winter and the summer. This time, I went to lunch with Yaling and then to dinner with my boyfriend.
Yaling and I went to a Mediterranean restaurant around Gramercy, called Barbounia. It took us days to choose a place because we wanted to go everywhereeeee. I ended up picking this one mostly based on the dessert choices, haha. No regrets – everything was fantastic (I tasted some of Yaling’s meal and gave her a few bites of my food – definitely everything) and I would gladly go back to try their regular menu! It was such a cute, cozy place too, with high, arched ceilings, chandeliers holding rows of (fake but still atmospheric!) flickering candles, booths covered with throw pillows, and cheerful music. I wish I hadn’t been too afraid to take pictures of the decor! social anxiety why do you do this to me.
Bread and olive oil that was super delicious. I hate it when restaurants give you awesome bread because then you end up eating all of it and filling up before your food arrives. But somehow I managed to inhale everything I ordered ;)
