goodies galore

I've only blogged five times this month?!?! Not a good start to the new year, haha. I haven't been extremely busy or anything...just lazy. But I've been meaning to blog about all the new stuff I've gotten. My boyfriend asked his friend from Japan to bring me back a bunch of goodies. And he bought me some stuff offline. And just a couple items I got in Seattle. So here they areeee:

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus. I've been wanting to try this mascara, and I really like it! It lengthens pretty well and is waterproof too.

Sweet January 2010. Came with a cute little Marc by Marc Jacobs tote.

Sweet February 2010. Came with a Cher tote and matching ID case!

Pink Panther kigurumi. I don't know when I'll wear this, but it's super cute!

Cher large tote & Cher medium tote. I love my boyfriend. He's too good to me. Excuse the ugly mirror photo. Sneak peak of my dorm?

Daiso Japan items. False eyelashes, makeup removing wipes, nail polish remover, and eye mask. They were only $1.50 each; I couldn't pass up the great deal!

Oh and a Hello Kitty wallet my sister got me for my birthday!

I feel like there's more stuff lying around to be blogged about, but I'll save that for next time.



where have i been?

I think it's been like 10 days since I last posted.
That's probably the longest amount of non-blogging that I've done.
Why was that, you ask?

One: I had less than 24 hours to get all my stuff together and head back to school upon returning from Seattle.
Two: I caught a cold/fever/flu/not sure what it is.

But I'm pretty much settled back into school now and I'm feeling a lot better. So just a little hello post before I really get back into it.

And I just want to say thank you to my awesome wonderful boyfriend who took care of me and put up with me for the last god knows how long. I know I'm not the easiest person to get along with sometimes and it gets worse when I'm sick and grumpy. I loveeeee you!



sleepy in seattle

I have been MIA without realizing that I hadn't announced in my blog that I would be going to Seattle for a few days! So there it is.

My sister and I are here visiting some relatives. Some I haven't seen for 6 months, and some others, years. And a couple I have never met. So far it's been relaxing. We landed last night so didn't do much other than catch up with family, but today we explored parts of downtown Seattle and Bellevue.

No photos yet since I didn't bring my camera cord.

Oh, and we tried to find Bruce Lee's tombstone but no such luck.

to my surprise

I don't really get surprised that often. Maybe it's because I can read into people. But today, I was meeting up with one of my best friends. She's like a chef-in-the-making, so she was going to cook me dinner for my birthday.
And to my surprise, all of my best friends from home were there.
It might not sound like anything special, but it meant a lot to me.
I've felt like I've been losing them slowly.
Now I feel a little more reassured.

18 going on 19

Some photos from birthday celebrations.
First cake from Finale.
Onion blossom, chili, mashed potatoes & 22 oz. ribeye from Texas Roadhouse.
Second cake from Tous Les Jours.

I'm getting hungry from looking at everything again...




First blog post of 2010!
So far, nothing significant has happened.
But not to fear, there's still 353 days left in the year.

Tomorrow I'm celebrating my birthday early with my family.
