NOV / DEC in Review

novdec_feature

One day I’ll be so on top of blog posts that I won’t have to do the dreaded “haha I’m sharing photos from 5 months ago” apology :( 對不起 :'( Here’s the big life update I promised in a previous post. The start of winter 2013 involved a lot of shopping and eating (WHAT’S NEW), but a big new thing happened towards the end of the year! Read More

✯ Launch Party ✯ I’m really excited to share the launch of my brother’s portfolio – VIACALVIN – with you guys! Calvin’s put in a lot of time planning the site, rendering his work, and glaring at CSS in order to make this happen, so I’m thrilled for him and his future success. Dancer, skater, fashion enthusiast and now graphic designer! Check him out and send him some love at @viacalvin~

(ps ps new things coming soon! drafting a bunch of posts for this coming week~)

✧ MEMEBOX – 3rd Edition Global Unboxing ✧

20140119_8847

Happy 2014 everyone! I can’t believe we’re already nearing the end of January :'( I hope this year will be good to all of us – let’s all do amazing things and create wonderful memories with people we love ♡ It’s been almost a month since my last post (OOPS) and almost a whopping 3 months since my last real post with substance… JK DBSK IS SUBSTANCE. I have some Real Life Grown Up changes that I’m excited to share soon, but I recently picked up something special and wanted to go ahead and get this post up ASAP!

(ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧ Baby’s first beauty box!! I was chatting with my friend Amanda (hi!) a while ago about beauty subscription services and she introduced me to MEMEBOX, a Korean beauty box curated by the team behind OnStyle’s ‘Get It Beauty’ cosmetic & skincare show. Some of you may be familiar with their Get It Beauty Self web series featuring demo vids by kpop idols like f(x)’s Sulli, 4minute’s Gayoon and THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL EVER, Nana of AfterSchool. While I think the show itself is hit or miss, I like their blind product tests and it’s fun seeing what new trends are out there. I missed out unfortunately on the first two boxes, so when I saw the 3rd edition up for sale and it being a ~special global edition~, I had to treat myself to the January box~ Read More

Gravity

“Houston, this is Mission Specialist Ryan Stone. I am off-structure, and I’m drifting.
Do you copy? Anyone? Anyone… Do you copy? Please copy. Please.”

I watched Gravity over 2 weeks ago and it’s taken me nearly as long to write about it because IT WAS SO INCREDIBLE and I am so overwhelmed with feelings – some of which may or may involve crying. (╥╯^╰╥) I think my love for space travel/exploration made the movie a lot more personal than it would for most people, but even if you don’t like space as much as I do (“but outer space is so cool! the coolest!”), you’ve got to see this movie because it’s just an amazing piece of filmmaking and I swear you won’t regret it. I’m not writing a review because I just can’t, but here were some of my favorite things:(There is a secondary cut for spoilers under this one – don’t worry!) Read More
