I thought because the first ingredient was a fruit wax, that this would be harder to manipulate. Boy was I wrong. I personally, for my spare brow uses, think that the Annabelle Brow Pencil to be easier to use than the Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner. Just the fact that it was easier to manipulate meant that I would fill in the sparse areas a bit better (at least according to my own skill level…which is quite ‘meh’ when it comes to pencils). In the end, after brushing it out, it looks comparable to what I would do with a brush and powder version. On that note, yes, I did use a brush. I could have used the one that comes with the pencil, but my brows are sparse, so I found that a separate brush allowed me to fill in areas better, and just give me more control.

Left side with the pencil, right is what I would normally do with powder. The left is sharper, as you can use the pencil to define it better.

The other thing I liked, was that for my own brows, I didn’t need to fill it in too much. I probably could have done less than what I actually pictured, and it would have been sufficient.

The one thing I would suggest is to use a light hand with the brush end of the pencil. Too hard and you will pull off too much of the pigment you put on. But that can also be a plus, especially for those who feel that they put on too much in the first place.

It retails for $6.95, and you can find it in 5 different shades. You can find them on the Annabelle website, or pretty much anywhere else that sells Annabelle products.

Eating at 168Sushi

168Sushi Vaughn
120 Steels Avenue West, Vaughn Ontario

Located on the north west corner of Dufferin and Steeles, you have this place called 168 Sushi Buffet. With soon to be 7 locations in Ontario, for a cheap eat, it is decent.

Today I am sharing the dinner buffet at the 168Sushi Vaughn location (the only one I have visited on multiple occasions).

This was my first iPad accessible restaurant. You order directly on it, and poof! Food appears a short while later.

The interior is on the pretty side, and the bathrooms are kept rather clean. Very important for me.

Sushi Pizza. Comes already cut up, so you might want to order in 4’s. Despite the fact that it is fried, and it seems they do fry on the slightly oily side, I haven’t had much issue with these

Oily, but makes you feel healthy for eating a veggie lol

Kalbi. Im usually not a fan of eating Kalbi at restaurants, as they are usually too sweet. On the occasions I have gone, they have been just right. Though, as you can see, super oily. But that is kind of typical of the Kalbi I get elsewhere.

Thankfully these pieces were not chewy, or taste like they were frozen…which is always nice, even if they are. Plus yay for presentation. Though this is not the case for lunch meals…as…those are rather disappointing.

I also like the Fried Banana and Fried Milk, however it is rather inconsistent. Also it is much better eating it with their Green Tea Ice Cream, than to eat it alone >_<

Dinner (Whole Day Available)

Adult – $24.95 (Mon-Thurs), $25.95 (Fri-Sun), $26.95 (Holiday)
And a fun thing to note, is that since the lunch and dinner menu is different, you can actually request the dinner all day at 168Sushi. I didn’t know, and the last time I went for lunch, I saw that the other table had all the sashimi that we didn’t have access to. It does mean the price jump, so it can be worth it if you are extra hungry.

Mini blurb about yesterdays Myeong Dong visit…

image

Hiya folks :)
Well, it is Sunday morning, and I am getting ready to go meet my cousin to go to Bukhasan.

I had mentioned I had planned on going before I left, and she said shed go with me if I go today (since she doesn’t work Sunday).

Anyway, I met up my family yesterday, so that we could eat at Todai.

But before that, I thought I would play around Myeong Dong.

First off, MD is a pretty popular place, as it is jam packed with stores, food, and randomness. If you visit, it is usually always quite busy…which is a pro and a con.

I started off at exit 4, so I could have a Big Mac at McDonald’s. The combo. Which is called a “set” in Korea, only cost 4300 won (the Korean won has gotten strong, but I like to very roughly translated it as being ~$4.30. But probably closer to 4.60?) Apparently. As I found out later, the sets are more expensive usually, but they are cheaper at lunch. Good thing I went for lunch :p

On that note, the Happy Meal toy is the Hello Kitty Baking Set. Cute…but not enough that I really want it lol

Next stop was to find the 32cm ice cream cone.

When I was here December 2010, one of the Oppas I knew said I had to try it, for the novelty. We walked around everywhere trying to find it…we did eventually, but it did take us a long time. Anyway, I figured i would find it again this time.

Funny thing I’d that it only took me 5 minutes haha.

It wasn’t as yummy though, might have been the fact that I was eating it alone (and no I didn’t finish it..this time…)

I broke a nail, so I went to Watson’s to buy clippers. A waste, but I desperately needed it.

I then continued to just roam about. Seeing Joe Fresh was kind of funny. And it was interesting to see all the different stores that are Korea brands. That I did not recognize.

Lastly, I went to Daiso.

I love Daiso. I am always so jealous of Vancouver for having one when we don’t. But I haven’t given up hope! :P anyway though they have a ton of fun things, I love their gift baggies/zip baggies. Soooo cute. Not that I need more…but I still had fun checking out the merch.

Anyway….
Only a few days left here :(

But at the same time I’m glad. I’ve had a few issues with the place I’m staying…not to mention this two girls can’t find the receptionist at 7:15, and have been yelling, ringing the bell, and just annoying everyone.

So it will be good to get proper sleep once I’m back.

Okay, enough out of me…I still need to get ready to leave. Have a great evening everyone :)

I didn’t want to ruin my appetite, but there was a lot of the usual street foods…

Musical Friday with Outsider

Hi everyone :)

Currently in Korea, and having fun!

Today I wanted to share Outsider’s MV for Sohn (Hand). I actually liked the video for the making of the track, so I embedded that one. You can see the official MV which incorporates animation on the channel of his new company Assa Communication. Couldn’t find translations for this, so couldn’t link one, sorry! But maybe you will like the sound of the vocals?? (Ack…I tried sorry)
