NYX: Fair Dust

As I've mentioned in the previous post, NYX-FAIR DUST is a very light shade of pink. It is barely noticeable. It has very tiny sparkles. It has a very clean & clear feeling to it. It is great for natural everyday look. The consistency is good and it dries pretty quickly. I highly recommend it. I got it on the mother's day sale at cherryculture.com

Fair Dust - USD $1.50

The brushes have very soft bristles as many have stated. I purposely picked the ones that were most purchased and have high ratings. The prices and quality are really good so I would definitely recommend their brushes, especially for newbies like myself. However, they come in individual pouches that have very strong plastic smell so defnitely wash them before use. After first wash, the bristles would not fall off on its own unless you purposely pull them off. Just by texture and softness, I like the stipple, powder and angled foundation brushes the most. Haven't really used them yet.

The eyeshadow palette was smaller than expected, well I guess it was my problem since the name already hinted "MINI". The colors were pretty complete for everyday use. It comes with a two headed applier.

The mineral eyeshadows are VERY shiny, I would say even to the point being metallic.  I didn't want to get colors that are too extreme so I watched many youtube videos before picking the colors. I ended up picking several colors that are very similiar. I am now waiting for one more eyeshadow that backordered, once I get it I would definitely do some comparing swatches =D

DRAMA: Can You Hear My Heart

Can You Hear My Heart

OMG >.< Kim Jae Won~!!! His smile is soso cute..isn't his skin a bit too white, I want his skin so badly..LOLs..This is the first drama he's in after he's done with military service, I think!!? I loved the dramas he was in, especially "Wonderful Life" when I saw it way back. I am now half way through this new drama =D. I like the soundtracks a lot as well!!

Genre: Romance, Drama
Total Episode: 30
Air Time: Saturdays & Sundays

In this drama, Kim Jae Won plays the character Cha Dong Joo, who turned deaf due to a childhood accident. Young Dong Joo saw his stepfather "murdered" his grandfather and fell of the balcony. It turns out that his stepfather marrying his mom is all a scheme to steal their family business. Dong Joo's mom took him out of the country to recover from the hearing lost and his stepfather tookover the family business. Dong Joo came back 16 years later to get revenge. He pretends that he can still hear and that he lost his memory due to the accident. He wants to get back what rightfully belongs to his grandfather.

The female leading role, Bong Woo Ri, played by Hwang Jung Eum, is an intelligent woman who pretends to be dim-witted to protect her mentally handicapped stepfather. Although life is harsh, she never gives up. The two met in the village Woo Ri lived in when they were small but lost contact after Dong Joo's accident. Now that Dong Joo came back to Korea, fate brings the two back together.

Recent Happenings...

This have been the most awful week I've ever experienced. It is the first time that I've lost someone important in my life. It's very very sad that a friend of mine since high school have passed away in the beginning of the month due to bone cancer. I've been very depressed this passed weekend after attending her funeral. I was crying from beginning to end, the moment I walked in, the moment I saw her mom, when her mom and her friends shared their thoughts of her, when they played a slideshow of her whole life's pictures, when I see her for the last time before they closed the coffin and send her off for cremation. How could this have happen to someone I know!! I mean she's only 23, she should still have a whole life ahead of her. Before she left us, all she was scared of wasn't death but that her mom would be left behind. Her dad passed away 1-2 years ago also due to cancer. How is her mom suppose to take this. And it was right before mother's day too!!! I feel terrible that there's nothing much I can do for her. I haven't been able to keep in touch with her for 1 to 2 month and the next thing I know she's not with us anymore?? I was just thinking about her the night she left, about where we should hangout after I finish my midterms. Yet I found out about her death the next day from another friend. I didn't even get to pay her a visit when she's at the hospital. All I can do now is wish her the best in heaven with her father. I will never forget about her, my fellow schoolmate, team member and colleague. My dear dear friend. 

In memory of Katelyn Huang

Handmade Bracelets

Showing off two bracelet I made a while back...
The two bracelets both involved the use of faux pearls and crystals. I put a flower toggle clasp on the first one and a regular lobster clasp for the second one. One bad thing about the flower toggle clasp is that the flower was not made for the clasp, I just replaced the original ring with the flower ring, so it always falls off. I almost lost it several times and stepped on it and had to replace the pearls once. Now I improved on it by adding a lobster clasp to it..
I made the first one to procrastinate from studying for midterms..kekeke...I spent several hours just on making the swirly springs that's placed above each crystal . Which is a total waste of time since they probably sell pre-made ones at craft stores. In between each pearl are 5 crystals including the colors: clear, clear AB, purple, blue, and gray. The second one's more simple. What's special about it was the springy stars in between the pearls. I thought they both looked awesome..

Leopard Print Frames

Got these from my cousin a while back. I liked it a lot, kinda into leopard prints. But these are humongous. They take up half of my face. I doubt I'd get use to them..T^T...I can't even use them for decoration since my prescription is kinda high...Poor frames, never been used, just sitting in the drawer...


Someday - IU 
Dreaming - IU
Coffee - Park Han Byul
If I Had A Lover - Gayoon (4 Minute) & Yoseob (Beast) Cover
Medley - IU

The first two songs are soundtracks of Korean drama "Dream High". I just love that drama, especially its soundtracks. Fell in love with IU's voice ever since. She's absolutely adorable..love how songs come out through her voice. I like the second song the best. The lyrics' very cute. In the drama IU's character wrote the song to express her feeling toward Jason, if I remembered correctly. It's cut out from the drama and kinda short, why can't they release the entire song.. 

Heard Coffee by Park Han Byul at someone's blog. I thought it sounded like one of SNSD's? songs. This song is slower yet catchy and very comfortable to listen to. So I give it two thumbs up..^^..

If I Had A Lover is originally sang by G.Na and Rain. This cover of the song is a cuter version. But I like both versions. 

The last track is a video which IU sang Gee (SNSD), Lies (Big Bang) and Sorry Sorry (SJ) on a show with only her guitar. Her voice is so soothing... LOLs.. the MC's expression was very funny when he listens to her.


restless day...

Such a busy busy day...did the laundry this morning , went to see my grandparents before they visit China and had breakfast with them. Spent so much time just to get grandpa up to the restaurant since he had to use wheelchair and the elevator was broken. Had to chase after 5 kids, my 4 baby cousins and my lilo brother, at the restaurant and the park as they always run in different directions. Ended up eating dinner at my uncle's yet his baby and toddler never stopped screaming......my head will probably explode if I stay there longer. When I finally got home, I still have to fold the laundry...I am so strained out ...

Moving in...

Weather , such a good weather for nap taking..

FINALLY After those crazy midterms in the beginning of the week, I can finally get some rest

Just spent the entire afternoon trying to get this blog started. I am quite excited considering that my last blog was like half a decade ago...

Special thanks to Fernanda ♬ ★ ♥ ♪ ★ ☆~ for inspiring me, her super cute blog made me wanna blog away again..
