It's winter break right now, and I don't go out much. So for me to even put this much effort into wearing clothing that is bearable to see is a lot.
What I wore:
Black tights from Gmarket
American Eagle Shorts
ps. My face looks so...sickly white. It's the bb cream. darn you spf(although, I do like looking like this...kind of...)
A shot with the mirror. I thought it came out nice :D
My face looks like a normal shade of human. :3

These are really simple nails I did. It's just alternating green/red nail polish. Nothing extravagant, but I hope it gives off a slight Christmas feel?
Don't mind the uh....'special' way I photographed the picture ^^;; it was so hard to show what my nails looked like.
I also bought some heels for semi-formal. I thought they were nice, but my mom didn't like the red colour. :(
However, it's very comfortable! : D YAY! I just wish I could find more places to wear these too. I look too much like a child to wear these.
I hope everyone is having a great winter break ^^

Review: Etude house Dear darling Ultra shine lips in Peach milk
Cost: ~8-9 I bought this on Gmarket, so I'm not sure about the price.
Colour: Very nice. It's close to my lips colour in photos, but it's actually a nice pink. It does contain shimmer, so approach with caution.
Packaging: I love stuff that comes in boxes 8) I always keep my etude house in it's original box. The stuff itself, very nice too. Plastic, somewhat cheap feeling, but this is equivalent to drugstore products. I like the baby pink packaging and the nice pink ring
Product: Very smooth. The first time I used it, I think it almost melted. XD I got it in the summer, and yeah....When I use it now, it's much firmer, but still very nice.
It also has a nice peach smell.
ps. sorry for the massive watermark, I'm still unsure of placement ^^;
- Pleasant scent
- Nice colour
- Price is fair
- Matches asian skintones well
- Only available in asia(or korea for the best price)
- cheapish packaging
- Travels down slightly
I think this lipstick, it's very nice. However, I personally don't think the colour matches me very well. I don't regret this purchase though. The actual line of the lipstick is really good.

The packaging is very nice for a drugstore product, but I feel a brush applicator is more appropriate than the doe foot. It is very opaque so be careful when applying so you do not apply too much. This doesn't come with ingredient list or anything, it comes as is.
- Good coverage
- Nice colours(if it flatters your skin tone)
- Nice packaging
- Not super sticky
- Settles into fine lines
- Cannot match with warm tones(unless you like looking dead)
- I think it would be better with a brush applicator
- Expensive (currently can only be bought at shoppers for $9CAD)
This gloss is pretty good, glides easily. However, since it's a creme colour, it's hard to distribute colour evenly. I selected bad shades that doesn't match me. It's a disappointment, but I can deal with it.
Despite having "peach" in the name, it is nowhere near as warm toned. This is also very cool and much much harder to pull off versus the Lilac Pastelle. It is very nice in itself, however it just doesn't match me. Warning to all of you ladies out there with warm skin tones. :(
I just haven't been able to wear it long enough because it's so hard for me to pull off. I'm assuming it can last for a while granted that you don't eat/drink.
Cost: ~$9.00 CAD
I bought it at shoppers because it's the only place which has this. If and when Walmart has this, it will most likely be approximately 6.00
Ugg, this gloss is so hard to use. I'm so dissapointed.
It's a very nice colour and very unique. The only problem is, I have a warm toned skin and I look like I died. :\ However, it very very small amounts, it does look pretty and workable. It just isn't for me.
Why? Well, considering the fact that it makes me look like a zombie, I haven't worn it long enough. It is, however not as sticky as lancome's juicy tubes.
Cost: ~$9.00 CAD
It cost more than usual because I bought it at shoppers, which got it before walmart. :( so I paid premium prices because I couldn't wait. I regret that. WHY WHY WHY! I was suckered into the fact that it was Limited Edition, and everyone was raving about it.
PLEASE AVOID IF NUDES/COOLS DON"T WORK FOR YOU AND MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE YOU"VE BEEN DEAD FOR A WEEK.
If you have a warm skin tone like me, using these alone SUCKS. I look like I just died. What I suggest is using a very warm/red toned lipstick/stain under it. It'll tone down the cool tones in the lipgloss.
See? so much better. Sadly, a pet peeve of mines is when the doe foot applicator picks up the colour of the lipstick. I hate it, so I'm waiting for my lipstains to come in before I really wear these out.
Also, the glosses may appear to look okay in photos, but:
1) they are close ups, so you don't see how horrible it really is
2) camera makes it look nice on my lips
3) I appeared more washed out because I was in front of a window
But, comparing the regular swatches versus the one over the lipstick, I think the lipstick one wins.
Ps. I feel my watermarks are obnoxious...so sorry if it bothers you.

It's like a mixture of Vanilla, floral, musky warm scent. I love it. It's not too strong a fruity, but very sweet and feminine. Plus, the bottle is adorable.
The price not so much :( This retailed for $75 at shoppers drug mart. I'm so glad I didn't pay retail for it xD.
Look how cute they are!! You can wear the cap thingy as a ring xD
PS. Excuse the worry excuse of a watermark. I currently don't have photoshop(sadly) and I don't have time to make an actual watermark just yet. I really wanted to get back to blogging, so yeahh.
This is how much I have now. Until October, I've only used up till the dip in the heart, but I've used it excessively till now(one month) so, yeah. It looks like I didn't use a lot in general. However, that amount in one month? I'm crazy. :S
On a side note, look what happened to my lipgloss!! :( so sad!! I need to get a new one. Warning for all you people, don't close things too tightly!!
That is all for now. Oh, an update on my graduation photos. They were horrible. End of story. Basically, I think I look so bad and fat. They gave me a gown that looks like I've been eaten. Horrible. :( I also didn't get much sleep lately, so I look really tired. If I have many horrible mistakes, that may be why. My lack of sleep.
So, time to head off to sleep~~ good night.
ps. How come, when I start blogging, and typing, I just can't get off?! seriously! I gotta kick myself off :( I dun wanna leave~~ I wanna keep typing. xD good night for real this time.

Here's my eyes with just mascara.
Here's with false eyelashes.
I didn't bother putting in circle lens for these photos... I'm thinking I should just not put on false eyelashes. Just stick with being naturalish.
Perhaps I should post up this look as a tutorial when I have time :P
ps. omg, it snowed on friday :( I gotta get some more winter gear!

:'( I'm planning to apply to waterloo and u of t, but I want to get add more choices. Sigh, life if so hard.
Also, Grad photos are coming up, and the realization of me growing up hit me. It's been four years since i've entered this school. Four years I've learned, chilled, ate lunch with these people. Some, I don't like, some I'll miss, some I won't. What I'm scared of, is not keeping in touch with good friends. I have a tendency where I get tired of people. Like, I usually don't like to go out too much, and if we don't go to the same school, I don't put in the same effort. I'm just scared tha ti'll drift away from good friends because of my nature.
Anyways, I'm still not sure how photos are gonna be taken!! :\\ It says on the pamphlet to take changes of clothes, accessories, and we can take group shots too.
ON to good news, I'm going to order from gmarket again...ahahah yes again ^^;;;
: P money is currently being transferred~~ Can't wait for items!

It took longer than it usually would because it was chuseok. That aside, it might have taken over a week, to two weeks to arrive to me. This isn't too bad considering it took a week for my items to ship within korea.
The total was a whopping $70...
The blue bag retails for 14, and the beige one for 30. so, the items cost 44, but shipping was 26. I advise you guys to get a big haul.
Anyways, enough words, let's get to the pictures.
The blue bag was smaller than I expected, but could fit quite a bit. The beige bag was huge, and bigger than I expected. My only complaint about the beige bag is that it's heavy. It fits so many things, but the bag itself feels so heavy. However, the blue one is very light, and similar to the jansport ones.
The blue one has a small pocket on the inside to store smaller items. It also has a pocket up front, and there are two zippers for closure in the main compartment.
For the beige one, there is also a small compartment on the inside. There are 3 small pockets on the outside. The front pocket closes via zipper, while the two small ones in the side close with a magnet. The main component is closed by just a drawstring, and easy to open. However, there is a flap over the opening that can be closed with magnets.
Overall, the bags are pretty good. The only draw back was, I was impatient and therefore, paid for the excessive shipping. :( however, I love this bag, so it's all worth it. Oh, the white one(supposed to be beige) is mine ^^. The blue is for my sister. She was the one modeling so let's all applaud her.
Thank you for reading, and I may have another gmarket haul too. sigh, I'm addicted to gmarket :(
