Tuesday, May 3, 2011



i'm happy to say that things have definitely warmed up in this little city of mine.

as i type, the sun is shining with a bit of a cool breeze. but i am infinitely thankful for this weather and so happy to see that almost all the snow in my area has melted.

it was perfect timing for my anniversary, too!

my anniversary with horsie was last tuesday, the 26th. unfortunately, we didn't really get to celebrate the day of because i had a final exam the very next morning. D; eff you, school.

BUT! we did get to make up for it this past weekend.

for lunch, we went out for pho.
went to one of the hipster avenues for some shopping and toys. [where i got a pair of those glasses-that-are-purely-for-aesthetic-purposes-and-don't-aid-with-vision-correction-in-any-way-shape-or-form and a cute little ring. pony picked up a domo vinyl which i think will soon become a permanent fixture in his car.]

then for supper, we had sushi. LOL.

then we hit up the arcade and played a LOT of racing games, shooting games and skeeball. then experienced some fail purikura. took some camera phone photos instead. then rented harry potter 7 and went out AGAIN for bubble tea.

HAHA. it was a very fattening day.

my past week has been consumed with studying [lol, not really] and THE TUDORS.

oh. my. god. i am obsessed with this series. my coworker lent all four seasons to me on dvd a couple weeks back, but i wasn't able to watch them while school was happening. UNTIL NOW.

since i'm on break for finals, the last few nights i was staying up until impossible hours trying to finish all the episodes on the discs. it's unhealthy, but this is rare for me.

ANYWAYS, here's a suggestion; if you dig period dramas and don't mind slight departures from historical accuracy, i highly recommend you check this series out. also, everyone in this series is beautiful. it's like the casting team went out of their way to cast the prettiest people they could find. seriously.


the other day i went out with ling. AGAIN. hahaha. this has become somewhat of a weekly thing now. i don't even have the money for all these shopping trips, but we do it anyways.

we went out for bubble tea too, lololol.
i think the cafe owner is getting tired of seeing my face every other day.

some buys;

[because there's some otherworldly force that prevents me from going out and NOT coming home with one-or four-pairs of false lashes..]

one interesting thing to note about these lashes [style: elegant, 10$ at sephora] is that they're pretty similar to MAC #7 or ardell demi 102. the only real difference, i think is that they're a lot shorter. but oh well, it's a pretty good dupe, i think. i'd still go for the ardells, though. because those are like 6$ compared to sephora's 10$ version. WEW.

i also bought some clothes, but they aren't photographed. will do that soon.

so, today's guilty pleasure [in audio form] has been out for a while, but i've only just given this song a real listen probably like, an hour ago;

i can't believe how much i've been listening to this. haha.

that's the one thing about having a bff that's a few years younger than you. i've been exposed to facets of pop culture that i typically wouldn't even have given a second thought about. ling's given me a real ~teeny-bopper~ perspective on a lot of things, from shopping and trends, to movies and music.

and against my higher conscience, i find myself enjoying it. it's terrifying and refreshing at the same time. and DAMN, this makes me sound old.

and i know i'm the furthest thing from mature, so maybe i shouldn't even be saying anything!

..but you know, it might just be the fact that my birthday is coming up.
i didn't even realize it until i went on a trip to sephora and i got this;

[LOL, no.. not everything. just on the left; philosophy 'happy birthday beautiful' body wash/shower gel/shampoo. it's vanilla cake-scented!]


hahaha. i'm more anxious than anything. this year marks when i will be TWENTY-FREAKING-ONE YEARS OLD. a legit adult, and globally legal.

the last part sounds exciting, but everything else? NO, NOT SO MUCH.
being an adult, ew. in canada, i've technically been an adult for two years now, but it still grosses me out. responsibility and shit? NAH, MAN. i don't want to think about those things! i just want to blog about makeup all day.

but whatever. i won't be a real, living, breathing adult until next tuesday anyways! so i'll save all the anxiety for that day. maybe even get some celebrations in effect before then. might as well, since i haven't gotten together with my hombres in HOW LONG.

and speaking of hombres..
tonight lingsies is coming with me to sunsies' first spring league hockey game. YAY. i know he'll be happy to have an extra cheerleader for his team. :D

i'ma go pick her up so that we can fit in some pre-hockey shopping..!

do you realize what this means?


i got these done on tuesday. literally the DAY after my last clinical shift.
i called mama-in-law first thing and pretty much ran to the salon. HAHA.
she said she wanted to try something new and MAN, you do not realize how much i missed fake nails!

this is my first time getting sparkly glitter tips! i usually get pearlescent tips, but wow.. how long has it been? i think at least four months? my nails were SO UGLY. i was so happy to see my boyfriend's mom that day. 8D

so last night it snowed like a bastard.

so much for spring. it was literally shorts-wearing weather the day before!
wtf, i hate this city. D:<

anyways, back to nailchat.
i've pretty much forgotten how to type/text/functions since getting them but IT'S WORTH IT. i have to file them a bit, though.

when i have to get these filled, i will play with all the new nail polishes i bought. YAY, I'M SO HAPPY TO HAVE NAILS AGAIN. until fall semester rolls around, that is.

this morning i had to be up at basically the crack of dawn just to get to school on time. last night we had a freak snowstorm and now all my dreams of sunshine and spring are dead and buried. D;

these photos are from yesterday, when i decided to play with my new makeup.

haha, i look dead and confused.
i was lazy and decided to forgo the falsies in favour of trying my new clinique eyelash primer.

i don't think you can even see my natural lashes in the next photo. oh well.

also, after my last entry i realized that i should try curling my hair again. here, it doesn't look so bad, but it was absolute shit later on in the day.
haha, wtf are with my hearts? SHIT, I'M TIRED.

hahaha. i have a weird profile [and a messy foyer], but i wanted to show the lack of falsies. i was really impressed by the staying power of my primer and mascara combo. i mean, it actually held a curl. THIS NEVER HAPPENS.

here's one from today.
actually, i take back my 'dead and confused' comment from before and apply it to this picture instead:

this was grumpy me this morning. as you can see, i was like FUCK MAKEUP and i don't have any concealer to save me.

man, i don't even know why i decided to post right now. i feel like it's past my bedtime.. hahahahaha, fuuuuuuu-
eh, this was a lazy entry. haha.

BUT! this week is the last week of winter semester!
finals next week, but i'll still have a bit of free time.
i'm going to play with all my spoils, haha.

expect some updates in the next few days. :'D

man. what a month march has been.

march was also TIM HORTONS 'ROLL UP THE RIM' month. it's basically this contest where you roll up the lip of the cup [after you're done drinking it, of course] and underneath is printed with either a prize [coffee, snacks, tvs, cars] or a PLAY AGAIN/REESAYEZ SI VOUS PLAIT. i won 3 coffees and two doughnuts this year. YAY.

i'm excited for this month, though. april should be sweet.
hopefully this means springtime and lovelyness and no more parkas.

also, this april will mark the three years for suns and i! april 26th, girlfriend!

in other news, i lost my cellphone memory card and now my vanity is in the hands of some stranger. this is very embarrassing. i have a LOT of camwhore pictures on it and knowing someone can look at all my fail posing is making me very anxious and SAD. BAWWWWW.

i do have these, though:

[from that girls night i was talking about in the last entry. holy SHIT, that was a long time ago..]

HOLY EFFING LOL. look at how insane those bastards are. wtf, thank god i have a straight fringe.

bathroom camwhoring at work.


i went to the mall and this was the moshpit i came across the day the ipad2 was released. SMH.

doing the shops with my favourite 17-year old! LING, I LOVE YOU.
[you can ignore the stumps i call my legs. OH! btw, i actually DID get my hair coloured, if you can tell. in this photo, it's faded but YAY PANELS.]

fotoboufe with lingsies!

viva glam gaga 2. i can't use this alone without looking all corpse-y.

march vanity haul!
haven't used any of it yet. maybe tonight!

AHAHAHA. I LITERALLY *JUST* FOUND THESE UNDER MY BED. WTF. i really need to write down the things i buy so i don't forget about them when they go missing.

this was taken on the way to my irish bff's 21st birthday celebrations. see the snow? yeah, that shit won't leave.

moe life story time:

wednesday was a shitty day!

i was driving to tim hortons [LOL] on my way to school and i sped up to switch lanes and get in front of this car so i could make the turn.
i didn't have enough time to slow my vehicle until this policeman comes out of nowhere and walks into the middle of the street and motions for me to pull over.

after that i got slapped with a 124$ speeding ticket and an additional 172$ ticket for 'failure to produce insurance'. i think what he meant was my registration because i didn't have my updated card in my car [which, yes- is completely my fault. UGH, SO STUPID. I HAVE IT IN A CARD CARRIER IN MY ROOM!]. and after that, i was late for class. D;

when i got out of class, i ran to my car to find a parking ticket on my windshield! i was fifteen minutes behind my ticket expiration time. FML.
another 40$ right there.

and the shitty thing is, that day i was going to hit up the shops to find an anniversary present for my boyfriend. hnnnnngggghhhhh.

i know how annoying i must sound right now. like i'm not taking responsibility for things which were seriously my fault. but i feel like a lot of this was kind of a wrong place/wrong time situation. it was just frustrating too, because there was so much going on that day/this week that it just feels like EVERYTHINGATONCE. you know what i mean?

i will pay all of my tickets. i am a good person, i swear. i have a month to do it, but i hope i will be able to do this before the last minute. i've paid my parking ticket already, so now i just have 296 bones to go... orz

ps; i can't stop listening to THIS..
