[ ♡ ] Daily Outing – 1/19/11 kimchi & Bubbles

Tuesday was a night of Korean food and bubble tea. We went to Mirror of Korea to grab some food and help Christi get her Korean fix. Here are some shots:




After dinner xti made us walk two blocks in the negative MN weather to a Korean grocery store that turned out to be closed. She made us walk because she said she misses walking around like in Korea. I think its time for her to go cold turkey otherwise she would never get out of her post-korea-depression.

Then we went to get bubble tea and talked about korea some more. This is not going to help her. I think its up to me to come up with some plan to bring her back to reality.

I got a watermelon black tea latte.

[ ♡ ] Golden Globe Fashion Picks – 2011

I’m actually pretty disappointed with the fashion turnout this year at the Golden Globes. I only really liked two looks, Angelina Jolie and Anne Hathaway and they’re both very similar.

I just love Angelina, she can do no wrong in my eyes. Her choice of dress is both stylish and the perfect color for her. I think most people would look weird or matronly in a dress like that so I give her props.

My favorite dress of the night though, goes to Anne. It’s the perfect color for that style and it turned out beautifully.

I also liked Olivia Wilde’s dress but it reminds me of a dress Camerion Diaz wore a long time ago meshed with one of Miley Cirus’s dresses.

And then I have one more love piece of the night: Megan fox. Her dress wasn’t amazing but it matched her perfectly. What I really loved though was her makeup.

I love people with dark hair and light eyes, its so exotic.

Hopefully the Oscars will yield more dress love.

[ ♡ ] Recent Purchase – Hair dryer shopping

Yesterday I went out to look for a new hair dryer because mine broke. So I decided to go to Walmart instead of Target this time because I’ve been to Target a lot and I just feel like I’ve been giving them too much money lately. I literately stood there for 30 minutes debating about which hair dryer to get. I can safely say, I know nothing about hair dryers and what makes a good one so I had no basis on which to compare them. I looked at watts first and they’re all the same so then I looked at prices and they’re all comparable from $15-$30 so that didn’t help. I even facebooked my dilemma. I then thought maybe the more attachments that came with, the better but then some cheaper ones have more attachments than the expensive ones so that was a bust. I finally decided on this Revlon one based on two very unscientific factors: sleekness and color 🙂


I just like it because its plain, sleek and black. It was probably $17 so not bad. It comes with two attachments which I probably won’t use because I’m just hair dryer-illiterate.

I also got some other things from Walmart including a gift which is why there’s a huge yellow blur in the picture. I got some brush heads for my electric toothbrush, and then nail polish remover and a mini hair spray to leave at work for touch ups.

I also dropped by Sallys to pick up a comb to leave a work for teasing touch ups lol. I ended up with more than I planned like always. I got a teasing comb, a small boar bristle round brush, two pairs of lashes and some hair clips for when I blow out my hair.

Then I dropped by H&M to pick up the black version of the grey blazer I bought two weeks ago because I really like the way it fits. And again, I got more than planned but everything was on sale so I didn’t spend much!

^ gloves for $3

^muavey ballerina pink tights for $1

^a green drapey skirt for $7

^ a cute top with shoulder details for $3!

^pink version of the same top

^A grey button down sweater/cardi with a slight shoulder pouf.

And finally, the black blazer I went to buy.

And then I also ended up at Target even though I earlier vowed not to give Target anymore of my money this week. I just got a gift bag, foundation, sponges and a pair of corner lashes.

I also got a trashcan (my original purpose for going to Target) but I left it in the car last night so I can just take it straight to work this morning.

[ ♡ ] Life on the Daily – self cam & list making

I wanted to give you guys a glimpse of my daily life in the office 🙂

I love working off my laptop because it allows me to self cam as much as I want, in fact, I want to do one picture a day to document how I look and if anything changes.


I also spend a lot of time making lists but to be fair, these include everything. I like writing on a plain white notepad (without stickiness) about the size of ¼ of a sheet of paper. I’m very particular because I’ve found this type of notepad to work best for me. I don’t like lines and I don’t like it to be sticky like a post it. Before I found these particular pads, I’ve been using blank notecards but those were too thick so I like this a lot better.

I basically jot down everything; what I want to buy, what I have to do, songs I find, everything. And then once in a while, I take them all and organize them into piles like this so I can access everything easily.

[ ♡ ] Recent Purchases & hair blowout

Just a quickie post of recent buys.

First, I got a new train case from Target. It’s a caboodles silver train case and its actually quite large. I’ve been thinking recently that my hot pink one is too small so I gave it to my sister and got this one. It’s much bigger than the other one but I don’t know if I really want to lug this thing around.


It has the overall same design as the other one with the two pull out trays and same pattern on the trays. I haven’t tried putting anything in there yet but I will be putting it to use soon because I have a sleepover coming up!

Next, I dropped by f21 to use a giftcard and found these lovely brown oxfords that I posted up earlier in a lust post.

I haven’t used them yet as it’s still snowy here and there is zero grip on these. The bottom is sort of a wooden structure.

Next I dropped by MAC and got two things. I almost also bought another lipstick in st. germain but they were out. What I did get I’m actually quite satisfied with.

I got a paint pot from the Cham Pale collection called Vintage Selection. It’s this beautiful champagne pinky color.


And then I got a dark red lipstick in Dubonnet.


I have been looking for a dark red lipstick that doesn’t have fushia hues or orange hues in it and I think I’ve found it according to the swatch I did on my hand. I have yet to try it on my lips so we’ll see how I feel about it afterwards.

And finally a look of the day quick pic. I just took this picture to document how awesome my hair turned out that day (like 3 days ago.) I just blew it out with a large round brush but I love how it falls nicely without looking curled. This is actually sort of a grueling process but the results always make it worth it!

[ ♡ ] Smiles & a pop of Tory Burch

I love this photo taken by the Satorialist of Korean Actress Lee Eon Jeong.

I remember thinking she was really beautiful when I watched “My Girl,” and wondering why she wasn’t the main girl but I’ve learned from years of watching Korean dramas that they tend to like cutesy girls rather than universally attractive girls.
