Disneyland, Gaming Binge, and Mini Fashion Haul: a Life Update!

It's been a while since I've done a post about what's going on in my life! So I'm going to take a short break from reviewing beauty products in order to update about happenings in my world.

This summer, I might be going to Disneyland with a couple of my friends! Things seem pretty messy at the moment; we're still planning what kind of ticket to buy, finding the cheapest hotels etc etc. We're pretty new to travelling on our own so even though we've not completely figured everything out yet, it's a fun experience to be doing it ourselves.

I love Disneyland. No let me correct myself, I LOVE Disneyland!!! It'll cost a lot to go but I'm saving up money to make this trip a reality! Hopefully things go smoothly!

As for saving up...I'm trying hard to not spend money on random stuff but it's pretty difficult when you work at the mall! I got some new clothes from H&M and Bootlegger.

This pretty floral dress looks amazing on! The peplum design on the hips really accentuates my figure and best of all, I don't look fat in it! A win if you ask me! It's from H&M.

This top cost me $2.50 at Bootlegger. That justifies me spending money on it and not saving for tuition and Disneyland right?

Last but not least, this green sweater/ dress thingy, also from Bootlegger. It's long enough to cover my bum and be like a dress but it looks like a hoodie! Pretty cool and cheap too, only $12.50~

I can't wait to rock these pieces in Spring and Summer! If only the weather would cooperate so I could put my parka away!

 I've been extra naughty and spent money on a DS game too. I love everything from classics for consoles like N64, PS1, and even Game Boy, to newer games for the Wii and PS3 etc. Even so, out of all the games I've ever played, Suikoden has got to be my favorite series...EVER!

 I own Suikoden 1 and 2 for the PS1 but unfortunately, 3 to 5 are for PS2. I've never owned a PS2...that means many awesome games (including those 3) I have never gotten the chance to play! In order to satisfy my thirst for Suikoden, I searched near and far for their DS spin off game called Suikoden Tierkreis. I called EB Games, little stores in my area that sell old video games, and even checked online sellers from to obscure British gaming sites! The thing is, Tierkreis is a rare DS game...finding it is no easy task (at least for cheap!) In the end, after making many phone calls and getting some friends to search for me too, I caved in and decided to buy it on ebay for 31 bucks. I guess that's not too bad but if I really had no choice, I might have spent the 80 bucks it was listed for on amazon! 
I have been warned that Tierkreis is nothing like the Suikodens from the main series, there are no recurring characters, the world is set somewhere completely different but still, as a die hard fan of Suikoden, I must try it! It's been a couple days since I ordered it! I'm practically checking the mailbox every 5 minutes to see if it arrived yet! 

Among all this hub bub, finals season is among us once again! I've been spending days locked in my room reading, taking notes, and sitting in one position just studying! It's painful I say, I'm writing this post right after I came from the gym and all that moving has got me feeling less sickly now. Both my finals are on the weekend though...just who plans these things! I wish it was on a weekday so that I wouldn't need to sacrifice my two days off to do those tests but hey! You gotta do what you gotta do! 

My brother and I attempted to make homemade potato chips not too long ago (the exercise won't get me anywhere at this rate XD) and this is how they turned out. We used mini, russet potatoes and by god they were delicious! Mini but delicious!

When I get really bored of studying ( and baking chips), I draw or practice piano. Here's a couple pieces I've done recently. 

Candy inspired OC Girl

Chris Lightfellow Fan Art from Suikoden III

Arya from The Inheritance Cycle Books by Christopher Paolini

There's more stuff from me like this on DeviantART so I'll link you to my page here. Once finals are over I'll have a lot more time to draw (yippee!). I have confidence that I'll pass my exams, I just need to keep hitting the books! Wish me luck!

To end this post, here's a picture of what my hair looks like now. It't gone through quite a few transformations and is now, kind of ombre. The hair is blonde on the surface but black underneath, makes for really cool looking ponytails and braids! I can't wait till it gets longer!

Thanks for reading and ciao for now~!


  1. That H&M dress looks GORGEOUS! Where do you work in the mall? Someplace fun I hope, to make up for the lack of nail polish? :)
