Proud Soshi fan moment! I got to visit the waiting room where the girls were having their press conference before the show! Now if only I could meet them :) That is the goal for next time ;) hehe
I just got home from my trip to Seoul! What a looong flight~
I’m just kind of speechless about the whole thing. I have ZERO regrets about this trip, and i’m beyond fascinated by the culture that i’ve gotten the chance to live in for two weeks. Moreover was the fact that I had made this trip alone. How crazy is that? They said you had to be brave to be alone for two weeks, but I am so blessed because I found a second home while I was in Seoul. I met so many people who took care of me and gave me their company. I have good memories of myself being alone and exploring the city, and being amongst friends and sight-seeing outside the city.
At the end of this trip, I had managed to be really close with my landlady that she even told me “Just come here next time.. don’t even worry about the money. Just stay here.” It’s not the fact that she’s offering me free accomodation that stands out to me, but it’s the fact that she really truly cares about having me around! My stay at that guesthouse has been an unforgettable one. It was my home away from home, where I truly felt like I had family who cared about me and a big sister who cared about me!
My friends were mostly my room mates =) I’d never come across someone who I didn’t get along with for the 12 nights that I was there!
There are tooo many stories to tell, and I wouldn’t get tired of repeating them in my mind, because I love them so much! I loved every second of that trip, and i’m still reeling from it! Currently it’s 3 a.m, and i’m just starting to unpack my things. I really want to clean up and organize everything, then i’ll start working on uploading pictures and making a video story of my trip. Waaaah =’) Daebakkk!!!
Just one of those nights when i’m feeling eternally grateful, and i’m realizing so many things.
I’ve realized what I want as the end and meaning of my existence (deep, huh?). It is simply to leave a good legacy, something that the future generation can build upon. Leave a good and sustainable change for the generations to come. Because I won’t be here forever… and the best thing I can do is to make someone’s life better than it had been for me. Love other people. Care about other people, complete strangers.
Again and again, i’m reminded that the love we give out to the world comes right back at us. When you smile at the world, it will smile right back at you. Do not be afraid. There is a light in everybody :)
I just had an amazing day… but that’s a little unfair to say because every single day that i’ve been in Korea has been amazing. All the people and the places i’ve experienced… words can’t suffice for them.
Today, It’s mother’s day!! We’re having some renovations done to our house… LOL. All our stuff’s in the living room!! I just called le bakery to see if they could make a chocolate mousse cake with macarons on top to say “Happy Mother’s Day”. And I wanna watch Iron Man with the fam later. We’ll see if that pushes through! I still need to finish my mother’s day card lol I was soo tired last night!
I have to be honest.. these were on clearance and I couldn’t resist! I’ve recently been purchasing Nyx products and I love the quality :) All the items below normally cost about $5-7 each (canadian price), but they were less than $2 when I bought them.
1.) Chocolate- I totally mistook this as an eye pencil, then later I realized it was a lip pencil. It’s definitely on the red - plum side of things. I wouldn’t wear this shade in particular on my lips (because it looks almost like dark cherry lipstick). What I did love, though, was how smooth & pigmented it was. Given in a less kick-ass shade, I would definitely wear it!
2.) Tokyo Express- It shows up as a platinum taupe color and makes the skin around my fingers look brighter! Very sleek and business appropriate.
3.) Heather- Just the shade that I was looking for! My first pink nail polish. I hated the ones that were too bright and glittery. When applied, it is about one shade darker than the bottle color. And it’s matte!
4.) Burgundy Pearl- I would consider this a dupe to Mac’s “Sushi Flower”. Needs to be blended with a lighter shadow because this color is fierce! lol.
5.) Ultimatum- I haven’t opened this yet because i’ll be giving it to my mom for mother’s day :D I chose it because it’s a very light, peachy color (on the outside at least), and it’s something to wear on a more day-to-day, casual basis.
Glitter Mania’s “Hot Gold”- I’ve officially been inspired by Girls’ Generation’s glittery eye looks! They’ve worn it for years, but the trick never seems to get old.
That isn’t to say that you should go all out with the glitters. The trick is to use it very sparingly in all the right areas. It has to look subtle in real life. Girls Generation are superstars and are well known for always having pretty eye makeup on and off-stage. But unless it’s a flashy music video, they usually keep it simple.
Glitter Mania’s “Mink Pearl”- If you look at the picture of Yonna above, Mink Pearl looks like the champagne-peach shadow under her eyes. Again, very pretty and subtle :)
I’m still looking for something that will make the glitters stay put! Although there’s minimal fallout, i’d still love it if the glitter stayed all day.
… So that was my mini Nyx haul! Hope it helped and gave you some ideas! Xoxo!
