Girly Chats and Weird Guy

Listening to: Secret - I want you back

Went to meet my friend today to give her birthday present as she was busy working on the actual day. It was suppose to be with a few more other friends but they all couldnt make it and only decided to inform at the very last minute which I found really rude.

Anywho, the important thing is that I didnt let my friend down but she did feel abit upset about it. Instead of going for a meal as planned we went to a local bar and sat there chatting away as it had been a good 2months since I last saw her. A much need catch up was called for and thats what we did.
Halfway through our conversation a guy came and sat at the next table and just kept staring at us. Normal situation, but the weird thing was he was staring so intensely whilst creepily apply lip balm! I'm sure it was a good 10mins worth of application. Lols. Then he came over and started a conversation over his hair, with us being/speaking chinese, we told each other to hurry with drinks and move on to another table.

Just a weird day I wanted to share hehe. But definitely a nice day with my girl and hope she had a laugh =]

Packages Galore :D

Listening to: Park Bom - You and I

Don't we just love it when we receive expecting packages. After the whole Royal Mail strike last week, mail was being delayed and I was not a happy bunny. But then Monday came and they just came swarming in.

So lets get started on the packages.

I ordered some Laneige products after hearing some good reviews from various people, of course also from Bubzbeauty and Moonbeamstarlight who higly recommends. So what did I get?.

Laneige Multi Cleanser 180ml - For all skin types:
(Laneige claims)
- A new 3-in-1 cleanser functioning as makeup remover + foam cleanser + super fine scrub.

- Ultra fine particles containing 100μm Micro cellulose beads completely remove the makeup residue.

- AHA mixtures extracted from 5 plants (orange, lemon, bilberry, sugar cane and sugar maple) keep your skin elastic, and ivy extracts and vitamin E agent purifies skin impurities.

Laneige Pore Trouble Skin Refiner 160ml - For all skin types:
(Laneige claims)
- The Trouble Care Skin Toner is specially formulated for strengthening skin pore health. When applied, it leaves a smooth and fresh feeling without any stickiness.

- Removes excessive corneous skin dead cells and prevents keratinization, resulting in a smoother and cleaner skin.

- Contains salicylic acid and triclosan, which help prevent skin problems by removing excessive sebum and corneous skin dead cells, thus cleansing the skin pores.

- Contains tea tree oil, licorice extract, raspberry extract, clove extract and parsley extract, which help suppress and relieve skin problems.

- Contains natural Lactobacillus extract which helps balance PH values and strengthen immune system of skin pores, thus improving adult skin problems caused by factors such as hormone imbalance and air pollution.

I've yet to try these products but I am looking forward to it as soon as I finish using my current products. Might not be able to tell from the pictures but these products are huge, will be lasting me a very long time. I ordered these online from a korean seller who was also kind enough to throw in a couple of samples, yay me =] A bottle of Laneige lip and eye make up cleaner and a sachet of Skin Food Orange and Mint Body Essence.

Moving on, I also received some DVD's box sets I brought off ebay for a very, very good price. As most would know, I love my Korean Dramas so when I came across a seller who put up for auction 6 titles at a starting bid of 99p I just had to get my bidding fingers ready. I won and was impressed at how fast it had arrived as the seller decided to use a different courier due to the royal mail strikes.

I dont know how popular these are but I saw some guru's on youtube using them and thought they quite funky so got my hands on some too. These Velcro hair sheets just simply helps to keep hair out of the face by sweeping the hair back and placing it on top, no clipping or gripping. Very handy for when applying skincare or make up. (May not work too well with thicker hair, like mine)
Then there is the Facial hair removal spring wand. After watching the review from pursebuzz I went on the hunt for one as she made it seem painless. Verdict, it works really well and is painfree (maybe after the 1st couple of uses for some who are more sensitive). Would chose this method over tweezing any day.

Its just dragging now (movies)

How shocked was I when I first saw the trailer to Saw 6?! Very! I seriously thought it was stopping at 5. I don't really want to watch it but having watched the rest already I feel like I MUST watch this one.

1 and 2 was good, 3 was just excellently gruesome, 4 just couldn't compare to the previous and was somewhat starting to get boring(?).

Saw5 was just plain crap, my mind was literally drifting off elsewhere and I could have sworn that I fell asleep with my eyes open for a few seconds lols. After so many previous ones it just seemed like it was repeating itself and I felt like I was able to guess what happens and how things end. I'll just have to wait for Saw6, definitely not anticipating.

Like the sequels to Final Destination and Fast&Furious. Couldn't these producers put the money to good use and come out with something new and refreshing?

One film I'm looking forward to is New Moon, the sequel to Twilight. I am currently trying to finish reading the book before the launch of the film. I loved Twilight which was in cinemas last year. After having recently reading the book, I was somewhat disappointed only that they could have add more into the film from the book. But Robert Pattison was just yum ^^

Oh oh and Alice in wonderland. Need I say more? Hehe.

I want to watch The imaginarium of doctor parnassus? Anyone seen it yet and would recommend? Johnny Depp never disappoints =]

Also still need to watch Harry Potter. It is one movie I'll never watch in cinema because I know for sure I'll be getting it on DVD, so that'll go on the shopping list.
Anyways thats just a 'little' movie rant I wanted to share.

Its been a long time

Listening to: G-Dragon - Heartbreaker & AJ - Wipe the tears

Wow, its been nearly two months since my last blog entry since having my internet changeover. During that time, I've been busy sorting out my room since my brother has moved out and I've taken his room. I've never realised how much junk I had until moving day! I was more shocked about the fact that everything was able to fit in my old room (as it is smaller than my current). Finally everything is now in place (except for one little box of stuff that I haven't find a place for).

Especially loving my vanity table/area which I customised. (see picture below)

Everything was purchased from Ikea. I still need some ideas of how to customise my mirror as it looks too plain, was thinking of rhinestones all around the edge..? The table is actually a laptop desk that could slide out to reveal a little compartment underneath with holes in it to put your laptop cables and what-nots through to reach power sockets. Not too clear in the picture but that's where I store my ghd and dryers. Convenient, yes? ^^

On top I just store hair stuff, perfumes and everyday cosmetics. (Bit of a mess after rushing out this morning)

Anyways enough about that, I've done abit of shopping over the time I was away from the virtual world.

Firstly, I went into MAC (as we do) and grabbed myself 2 eyeshadows in Hush which is a pearly pink and Satin Taupe which is like a silvery bronze brown. These are my first ever MAC shadows that I brought myself, there were so many to choose from, I wanted them all!! LOLs.

Next I brought 2 lipsticks in Hue and Snob. I'm not a pink person but I like these colours.

Need to make another trip to MAC, Nude Rose in the Dsquared2 is eye-catching and there are hot reviews on the Style black Volcanic ash exfoliator and thermal mask, very tempting.

Moving on from make-up, while shopping I picked up a few of these from Dorothy Perkins. They are versatile accessories, can be used as neck ties, wristbands or headbands and I just decided to pick up all the colours I saw. A guilty purchase, as they cost £9 each =S.

I also saw this watches in Argos and just had to get my hands on them. Priced at £9.99 I'll say that's a bargain. There are about 6 colours(?) but I only got the black and white one as pictured. These give my more expensive watches a break after I made a noticeable scratch on one ='[.
They look quite similar to the Chanel J12 watch but Chanel J12 is just out of my league and wont be able to talk myself into spending that much on a watch anyways, unless I win the lottory! =D

I really hate Royal Mail and their continuous strikes, it messes up everything (in terms of mail). Well I went to the delivery office this morning to sign for a recorded letter that I missed, couldn't think of what it could have been. I opened it to find out it was my tickets to 'The Glam Show' woohoo!! Can't wait to go to it next weekend. Its a fashion/beauty exhibition/show in associations with Nicky Hambleton-Jones, who will be there to give tips and advice. Sounds like its going to be alot of fun. Have you got yours? ^^
