Housekeeping…

Edit: July2414
Welcome Readers :)
I was supposed to be on a regular schedule by now…shucks. Sometimes things don’t work out the way you want! I still have a lot of reviews to churn out, so Reps and Brands hold tight! Everyone else, I’ll be back to regular soon…I hope.
With that said, thank you for your support and for taking the time to check out the blog!

Musical Friday w So Ji Sub/소지섭

I’ve always had a mini crush on So Ji Sub. According to my friend, I have weird taste. In any case, I couldn’t help but drool a little in the intro. I loved the weird flash contrast that played in the beginning.

The shoe choice while he is sitting against the car, caught my eye. I mean far be it from me to judge another of their shoe. But it just stood out against the grey, sleep, awesome background…so I giggled. Perhaps it was the contrast against the more macho stance he takes. A sort of juxtaposition?

However, the lyrics…just…it gives us a little deeper glimpse in to what goes through his mind. Inner feelings. Here’s a link for the English Translation.

More often than not, we are judged by how we appear to be. Not because of who we actually are. So it is interesting to see this music video, SJS’s view of the world he interacts with.

Polka Dots

It took me a really long time in my youth…to realize it was polka, and not poka.

I still laugh at how silly that was.

Anyway, I was supposed to have a Cover Girl review up today…but I got super lazy in editing the pictures. My bad.

So today I will share a NOTD from a little while back.

I don’t usually do dots on the nails…but had this odd craving to do so.

So I pulled out my American Apparel nail polish and went to work (I used Sunset Blvd and Poppy).

And yes, that is a bit of settling in the polish. Not cool…but the colour is still pretty…when I could capture it…

Also, my nails aren’t as pointy any more. It was too long for me to type properly…or text properly. But I did have fun with them :)

I picked these up awhile back, which I shared HERE

Sunset Blvd isnt as orange as I capture it to be. Hence I added the cooler picture which makes my skintone look off.

Last week on Instagram…

If you are reading this on a reader, you might not see the Instagram photos. You will either need to check out my Instagram HERE, or check out the post. If you can, then yay :)

 

Oops. Sorry for dropping the ball and not publishing pictures with this this morning.

I only asked for baseball cards…so I could eat the gum, and bro could have the cards. Oh selfish selfish me…

Went to Costco. Went home. Opened trunk, reached in to grab bag. Greeted by slimy goo. WTH? Turned on light, noticed the entire of the Palmolive soap had emptied out in the trunk. *insert angry words here*. It took us nearly 2 hours to clean the interior, and to wash out the mats. It still stinks, and the interior is still sticky. Perfect. I don’t know why it didn’t come sealed. We wouldn’t have thought of it anyway, as it has never happened to us, and we always buy our Palmolive at Costco :T I did write them a letter, to suggest a product packaging change. Let’s see what I get as a response. What a waste.

Our family doesn’t do store bought Kimchi. Mum is convinced it sucks (well…it really did used to suck a long time ago *enter decade and a half ago*). Store bought Kimchi has come a long way, and yet she still insists on making it. Luckily mom learned old recipes from older Korean people over her life, so I don’t have to complain about the taste. But I really do need to start learning how to make it…even though I know I will probably stop eating it, or buy it as well.

Other than that, nothing much more to report back on the week on Instagram. It was pretty boring there, as I didn’t have much to share. Maybe this week will be different :) Hope your Monday’s have started off well!
