Last week on Instagram…

Mechanical pencils make me happy. Especially when they are cheap. These guys were about 80 cents each. Muhahahahaha

I added more to my Cosrx collection. With two sales/promotions, I saved 8 dollars.

One of my coworkers went to Japan, and made these little goodie bags for us. Really excited to use the eye mask. I’ll have to use it when I come home…don’t want to waste it on a short flight.

I did my gels back in NOvember…and haven’t bothered to do anything with my nails. Loving the length, but I do need to trim them. Making too many spelling mistakes when I am typing lol

Kbbq is always a good meal

My coworker shared her favorite smoke meat/jerky. Ben Cheng Hiang. A Singaporean yummy snack. Expensive, but I really enjoyed it.

Uniqlo is having their winter sale. Their heattech was on a super sale. Ended up picking up pairs of mens bottoms for ~$5, and womens for about ~$10. So, I got my family covered :)

I needed to relax in the warm comfort of the Jimjilbang. So…I went.
Love it.

Though I’m sure that will never happen…I can enjoy the music and dramas they produce instead lol

Last week on Instagram…

I said I was going to be good!!!!
I failed already! lol
I missed last weeks first Instagram post…which is why if you have an account you should follow there xD

Naw…I should just stop being lazy! haha

Anyway…going through rough patches…
Mostly it is because people think that I would be stupid enough to be petty. They don’t realize that I am trying to ensure that my students get the best education that we can possibly give them. If only they could understand that…we would be golden.

Also wish that people would keep their mouth shut, and that people had the intelligence to discern for themselves.

But that is besides the point.

Can’t help buying multiples when there is a great deal :P But then I found out on the weekend that they have a sale on these for the same price I paid, at Boon’s. Booooo

Saw this on 9gag and laughed. Poor kitty. #1000 #milestone #everyday #lol

This was my one thousandth post. It seems odd, but it was actually fitting for that day…
I’ve been going through a rough patch (work, and personal issues…). But this one made me laugh. I actually had to download a funny facial Gif to my phone to make me laugh as well. Good vibes, and prayers for acceptance could help too :)

One day and one night of wearing heat tech, and I was sold. Picked up these all on sale. I spent 54,000w on all 5 pieces. Things I got to send to mom, and for myself.

We don’t have a Uniqlo in Toronto, and I hadn’t gone to one before I came to Korea. Got to say, I love it. I understand the hype. I snagged these babies all for 35,000w. Picked up more for mom and myself.

Cosrx has made a lot of noise in the ABeauty Reddit feed. That is where I accidentally came across it. I am quite intrigued by a lot of their products, but indulged in the One Step PimpleClear PAds first. Simplicity is what I need. I will venture into the Asol and Blackhead products after.

I always browse Gmarket. I love going out to the stores to shop, as you get more freebies…but…it is really hectic inside. There are times that out of sheer frustrations, I have left the store empty handed. This is why Gmarket has been useful for me.

Not to mention, they have some awesome deals going on.

This was one of my purchases. One of my last for 2015.

The compact is actually interesting. It is squishy. Yup, I can press my finger into it, and it leaves a dent. That being said, it does feel nice. It is more powdery than I am used to, so I do need to make sure I actually moisturize well. In any case, sturdy case, good puff.

My only issue with this, was that it had a perfume scent, and there was this plastic black piece on the cream. I’d assume that it dislodged itself in transit, and settled on the pretty colour T___T.

The dark pink cream blush in the lower right side, is far more accurate in this picture than the ones above.

The felt tip is firm, and I like the colour. It actually comes in 3 colours: red, orange, and pink. It was a blind purchase, so they sent me red. I don’t think it is really my red, but I’ll play around with it and see.

Compact Mirror
I actually really like this mirror. I wouldn’t pay the full price for it, but definitely made my purchase better.

Final thoughts?
I probably wouldn’t spend the retail price to buy the compact. I think that with that price, I could get my go to’s instead. But, this price did allow me to see what the hype was about for some of the products. The price let me try some things out without burning a hole in my wallet.

Musical Friday – Do You Hear What I Hear?


This is by Home Free. A group that I actually heard through the 9gag website. That site is the best time waster ever. I have laughed so many times…and oddly enough, I don’t always feel as though my time has been “wasted”.

Okay, that is besides the point.

Great voices. In addition, as their caption said, this song goes isn’t just about religion…its about what is central. The importance of love.
