Helloo~

It’s been a while hasn’t it? Heh…

smores2

Life has been a bit hectic lately and I’m just also prettyy lazy. Just imagine summer vacation. Muahaha. Okay so since Jessica’s post about her rats, I have also gotten a pet! I adopted this adorable dog as a birthday present from a very close friend. But it basically encompasses a few years worth of birthday presents altogether.

But her name is S’mores is she’s a little over 2 years old. She is definitely a welcome thing in my life and we are both two lazy souls who just love laying down together. But she is always super excited in the morning and at night so I can take her on her long walks.

Jurlique Lavender Silk Finishing Powder Review


Now that the weather is melting us down into human sludge so warm, my face produces all the oils :| I am forever on the lookout for a sunscreen that doesn’t basically liquefy my face, but in the meantime a good oil-control product is always welcome. You might remember the review I did last year on the Maybelline foundation (god those photos sucked i am sorry) that worked really well for me; I loved it until I dropped my bag, with the compact inside, ON A CARPETED FLOOR and half of it just crumbled to dust and misery and now I refuse to bring it outside.

Review: Kracie Hadabisei Revitalizing Facial Mask & Cream Pack (6 Sheets)

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.Kracie Box

Macadamia Oil

 

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.

Etude House I Need You, Yogurt! Wash-off Mask Pack Review – Strawberry


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!

Missha Waterproof Eyeliner Review

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~~

Jewerich Eyelash Keeper (Lash Adhesive) Review

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 >______>

Panda Café!

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~

My Awesome New Laptop Sleeve from Babimini

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.
