[ ♡ ] Liner Lust – Urban Decay’s 15th anniversary 24/7 liner set


$95

I’ve been working really hard to stop myself from ordering this baby since it went on sale again a while ago. I’m still debating with myself. I really want it but have no real need for it. In fact I don’t even like the liners all that much but I keep thinking, “it’s a really good deal, what if I want it some day?” lol, I’m such a sucker for combo packs, you have no idea.

And I’m not really even a fan of the liners because I haven’t used them enough to have a passion for them. I’ve only tried it once this past week and didn’t feel any magic or anything. I don’t know. I will probably debate with myself a little bit longer before making a decision.

[ ♡ ] MN Beauty Raina Hein

I stumbled upon some Minnesota blogs the other day and eventually got to a blog by Raina Hein and I was super excited to read about her because she was one of my all time favorite America’s Next Top Model Finalists from her season. In fact, I distinctly remember her being my favorite because she is not only from MN but I also fell in love with her wolf eyes. You’ll see what I mean in the following pictgures.

This was the reason I fell in love with her:

After reading for a bit I’ve learned that she has been signed to a Minnesota Agency and has been doing some modeling since for which I’m glad because I totally thought she should’ve won. A face like hers doesn’t come around often and I’m happy that she’s getting to live out her dream. Here are a few more pictures of her.

[ ♡ ] Goodies from Korea – Etude, Holika Holika, Missha, Skinfood

My friends arrived from their Korea trip a few days ago bringing back a goodie bag for me. Before they left, I gave them a thorough list of what I wanted complete with brand, name, description, Korean price, US price, where they can find it and a picture of the products (LOL, I know.) Choua did a very good job of finding everything for me. Here are some shots of what I got:

The goods arrived in a Holika Holika Bag but I transferred them to this aerie bag after giving some of the stuff to my sisters.

The receipts. I love the smell of a fresh Korean cosmetic receipt 🙂

2 packs of face masks from Holika Holika. There’s 5 in each pack so I have 10 total. Each set was only 5000 won which is about $4. I’m excited to try these out.

Some stickers with a funny little note 🙂

My most anticipated item: Etudes O2 white toners. I actually got 3 but gave one to my sister. I bought this when I went to Korea two years ago and really fell in love with it but didn’t want to pay the US price for it. It’s about $20 not including shipping and handling if you order it online but it was only 13000 Won in Korea which is like $10.50 US dollars so I just saved over $30 on three.

Here is what it looks like. My old one is on the right and the new one is on the left. I like the old bottle better.

I also got a gel liner from Skinfood in brown. I got this in brown because a regular brown color like this wasn’t included in the smudge pot stila set.


The other item I was really excited to get, Missha Oil wipes. I got these because they’re super cheap compared to the clean & clear ones. The Clean&Clear oil wipes are about $5 for a pack of 50 wipes. Each of these are 2200 won and I got 10 packs. That’s about $1.75 a piece which is a great deal! They’re more expensive than they were before though. When I bought them two years ago, they were only 500 won (40 cents.) It’s ok though because overall it’s still a better deal.


I also got two cute planners!

And finally some samples. Some are not pictured because I gave them away. Samples are my favorite part of Korean shopping.

Getting all these things just make me want to shop in Korea! I’m so excited to start planning my trip!

[ ♡ ] Instant Memories – Karaoke & Bollywood Training

I’ve taken a few more pictures with my Fujifilm Instax Camera. I’m still amazed whenever the pictures come out.


This is how I’m currently keeping my camera safe lol. It’s not ideal. The bag is from an Ulta gift set a few years ago from my friend PH. As you can see, the camera pokes out over the top. I am looking for a real camera bag.


Pictures from our cousins night at my sister’s apartment. They’re doing a bollywood dance in the 2nd shots.

[ ♡ ] Recent Purchases – 01/12/11 Collective Haul

As I’ve been busy, I haven’t been posting my hauls. Here are some quick shots of the results of my shopping excursions in the last two weeks.

First from VS


I couldn’t resist the $2.99 panties deal so I got a few over two trips. I also got some basic tights for $3 each.

From Forever21


I got two pairs of tights, a thick grey wool pair and an olive green pair. I also got this cool ring set with four fitting rings and alternating designs.

From Charlotte Russe


I just got two rings for $8. The bird one I got for my sister who is modeling it. Its super cute and big. I also got this interlocking ring.

From H&M



I couldn’t resist the two blazers. The first one is a coraly pink blazer for $35. The second blazer is a while thin blazer for $20. I also feel in love with this blush tone blouse. It’s thin and loose and reminds me of the shirt I bought from Korea two years ago. I’m looking for more blouses of this style but in white. I also got a pair of black cargo skinnies not pictured here for $10.

That’s all for my purchases. I actually shopped Target a lot in the past few weeks but I just bought a ton of medicine because I am of course sick again. Oh well, at least I got a week break before it started up again and if it gets worst, at least I now have health insurance again so everything is gravy in my book! Till my next shopping trip then,

[ ♡ ] Updating Updates!

It’s been a while since I blogged. I noticed that I blog in sporadic spurts. I’ll go for a few days without blogging and then when I do blog again, I post everything all at once. This seems to work for me though so this is probably the pattern that will continue.

I’ve also changed the header and background again. The other version was just too much. I like a cleaner look.

Besides working and blogging I’ve been trying to plan my year out (I know, that’s a long time span to have planned ahead) but I feel like if I know what I’ll be doing, I’m more likely to get everything done. Mostly, I’m planning my trips and budgeting myself around them. I feel like I want to get in a lot of traveling this year and explore new places. I’m very excited for the future! More to come!

p.s. Here’s the original drawing for the header. I just drew it with a thin sharpie and took a photo of it.
