Learning Guitar

 Hello chaps! I recently got a guitar as a super early Christmas present from my parents and I'm in love with it! I don't think my fingertips have ever been more sore but music is such a big outlet for destressing at the end of a long day. I love to express myself in music be it singing, playing piano, guitar, clarinet, or even tapping out the beat of a song. 

I've named my guitar Caramellita Windsor...weird name I know. It was just going to be Windsor but my friend told me guitars must have female names so I named her after her caramel color. 

Ain't she a beauty?
(By the way my room is a horrendous mess...I don't think I've ever had an immaculate room but I do clean it when I can't walk in it without stepping on something)

So first thing's first, learning chords! I printed out a simple chord sheet with "campfire chords" to start me off.  I've also been spending a lot of time on
They seriously have a ton of chords and tabs for thousands upon thousands of songs! So far I've practiced songs like The Scientist - Coldplay, The A-Team - Ed Sheeran, and I'm Yours - Jason Mraz (Not just I'm Yours, I'm a HUGEEEE Mraz fan so I've tried to play many more of his songs)

Jason Mraz is such an inspiration to me. He's one of the reasons I wanted to learn guitar! It's been 2 weeks since I got Caramellita but I feel like I'm making fast progress! I practice nearly everyday for 2 hours (way to neglect my studies!) and I love every moment of it! Music is my passion, I think I'd be truly happy if I could sing or play instruments all day everyday. 

I've even taken Caramellita to my granny's care home to practice while I visit her. She seems to enjoy playing guitar too! She strums the strings while I make the chords. It makes me happy to see music give her a a smile. Once I get better I want to play at coffee shops. Even if I don't make much money it'd be a fun past time and I'd LOVE doing it! One of my dreams is to make music for people. Even if only one person listens, as long as they enjoy it I'm more than satisfied!

Thanks for reading and ciao for now~! <3

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Review

I know I'm probably the last beauty blogger in the world to do a review on Urban Decay's Primer Potion but it is a pretty good product and deserves a review, there's always new people getting into makeup and if my review can help them I'll be happy!    

The Original Urban Decay Primer Potion 

This product is really really hyped up. Crazy hyped up...everyone seems to know about it even if they don't know what a primer is! It's meant to be used on the eyelids to help any eye shadow stay vibrant and last all day. People with oily eyelids tend to love it but quite honestly it's not the best primer on the market.

It's basically a tube of silicone that's supposed to help your makeup stay put and not crease for 24 hours. Though it does hold on to eyeshadow much better than if you had used eyeshadow without primer, I still find that at the end of the day my makeup still travels onto my lower eyelids and I still crease! So the promise that for 24 hours your eye makeup won't budge isn't true.

Vibrancy wise it doesn't make a huge difference whether I use primer or not before shadow. Eyeshadow with UD primer potion and without are about the same in saturation and color. Again, nothing special.

The packaging is pretty cute though, the genie bottle top is especially adorable but I do have some qualms about it never closing completely. No matter how many times you try to turn it shut it will keep on turning and only click. The product doesn't dry out though thankfully, even with a clicky lid.

All in all I'm not super impressed by it but people that have lids that are less oily than mine may find it a godsend for staying power.

Just my opinions on it, I would love to hear yours if you've tried it!

Thanks for reading and ciao for now~! <3

What I've Been Up To

Yay for candy and costumes! Well...kind of, let's have a bit of a life update shall we? It was Halloween yesterday and my costume this year was a french maid! I tried to take this picture myself and stretched my arms as far away as possible to TRY and get my apron and most of my costume in good, short armed lady right here! I didn't go to no party, I didn't stuff my face with candy...yeah, I'm lame eh? I liked being dressed up though, Halloween is a good excuse to have some wardrobe fun~ I was a little disappointed with the lack of Halloween spirit at my university though...almost nobody dressed up! I heard a girl remark that she had only seen two costumes on campus the whole day...*sigh*, at my old campus everyone and I mean EVERYONE dressed up for Halloween! Well nobody is going to crush my Halloween spirit!

I've also downloaded and finished this visual novel game today, it's called The Second Reproduction, SOOOO GOOODDD! Thank you SOO MUCH Ryan for referring me to it~ <3

*drool........* my lovely Lezette, he is such a gentleman! I really wish there were still chivalrous knights out there~~~~ *the wishes of a lonely woman*

I should have done some homework today but instead I just played this visual novel, there are two other routes with good and bad endings for each guy. Looks like I'll be trying those game paths really soon kekeke...I find it hard to believe I'll like either of the other guys more though since Lezette is like MY DREAM GUY!!!! WAHHH!!!! *being an annoying fan girl*

Gaming-wise I'm also nearly done Skyward Sword! I think I'm in the last temple and seriously, Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword are neck in neck for the best Zelda game I've ever played. Playing it has rekindled my love for Legend of Zelda games and I think at semester end, I'll be replaying all of the Zelda games I own and maybe even trying to finish Majora's Mask. Majora's Mask is tough! It's timed and timed games stress me only got three days to save the world! *cue Justin Timberlake and Madonna!....okay nobody understands my jokes XD* 

I also ordered a pair of Tri-force earrings off a website called
They look amazing! $20 bucks is a little steep for some gold colored triangles but I'm super excited for these babies to arrive!

For school, midterms seem to be coming at me in endless waves, there's also a strike going on on campus so many classes end up being cancelled. Good news? Not really but the extra free time is welcome~ I recently had a math midterm which I think I did alright on, the next midterm I'll be having is for physics. I'm scared to have it since I did miserably on the first midterm for that class (yes we have two midterms for physics...*sigh).

This post seems very hackneyed but it's just a blurb of what's happening in my life right now XD
I've also been employed at the best place in the world!

I worked there last year as a seasonal sales assistant, I loved it~being surrounded by all the yummy scented goodness and happy people really boosted my mood~ I hope this year I have just as much fun and am able to contribute to the store~

Thanks for reading this little snapshot of my life~! Ciao for now~! <3
