Some of you might be tired to hear and see SHINee posts by now.
But I guess for me this is a process to go forward. Like I said it's not like I knew him but it feels weird he is gone.
I mean..if they have had just disbanded, I'd probably posted these posts as well because it's great music.
But it feels so weird that Jonghyun is no longer here. The music is not to be the same.
What's to happen to SHINee, I don't know...
I spent the last of 2009 and mid 2010 using this song as my ringtone on my old phone.
I still love this song so much!
I remember seeing you all performing this song as well. It is such a nice memory of you all shining on stage!
I cannot stop thinking that Jonghyun is gone.
It's like a little brother is gone for some reason, I mean I have followed him and his career since 2008.
It feels strange.
One thing is having bands and artists to disband or choose another path but our Jonghyun has left us.
I loved him on shows and his music.
It's a huge loss, but he will never be forgotten
Hubby kindly gifted me with these beauties. I saw them at one store but my size was out of stock.
Then again it was 50% off so no wonder there.
The next day I passed the other MK store and found them. I called and asked hubby for his opinion, knowing I already own a million pair of shoes ^^
He responded he just purchased the other MK shoes I saw the day before in red. I was like..OMG but I want the blue.
So I asked the clerk if she could hold them so hubby could come over so we could exchange. Hubby said, it's not easy to surprise me..haha
Anyway we came and I got these, so pretty no???
I love the velvet and colour, they are just perfect!!!! LOVE
Thank you darling ♥
Plush velvet and a leather cap toe elevate our Alice ballet flats. Finished with a smart bow and polished lock charm, the feminine shape and minimal design instill this pair with modern balance.

It has passed almost 2 days now.
It's not like I knew him personally but followed him since his debut.
To me he had a lotof talent. It's so sad for all who go through depression and it's so sad for those who do not get the support needed. Depression is one word but so different for each person.
Sadly no one could help Jonghyun.
He will be missed, he ended his life too soon.
We can only wonder for how long this has been going on and why.
Do you have allergies?
I have lots of them and when travelling it's difficult. I'm allergic to lots of foods - veggies.
In Sweden to have allergies is very common but in other countries it's not.
So in many countries it's difficult to eat because a lot cannot be changed.
The allergy I have the largest issue with is carrots! yes you heard it right, carrots! And no I cannot eat them if they are cooked either.
In Sweden these days a lot of food companies adds carrots or substitute meat for carrots as it's cheaper. But this has caused me not being able to buy things anymore....so sad!
In Korea and Japan this has been an extra large issue because they LOVE to put carrots in food or as toppings.
And although I have my allergies, sometimes I forget to ask.
Especially for dishes where it's normally not added. Or it had sorta detailed instructions but when I get the food it's there!
In Japan they have understood and taken it off but in Korea I sometimes have to fight it.
The ajummas working thinks I'm just picky because we ALL know how much the Koreans love their carrots!
Other allergies are apples, pears, peaches, zucchini, quinoa, walnuts, and hazelnuts!
All things are good for you, it's so insane!!!
And I used to be able to eat them when I was younger, so I'm not sure why I got them.
For Quinoa I was told because I ate it so intensively, like every lunch for 3 months, then I stopped. and when I started again I got such a stomach ache I thought I was gonna die.
I went to a clinic to get myself tested, the doctor said.. OMG you have A LOT of allergies when the test came out. She also said all cannot be tested. Some could be because of other allergies in other words cross reactions.
A lot of the foods would be from pollen, but I rarely feel pollen, it happened once. But I think it was because i was inside a hotel for a week and didn't go out and the pollen got really heavy the day I stepped out. That year pollen was super strong.
Anyway... having allergies sucks!
I wish I was allergy free, but once you get them.. you cannot get rid of them!
Faceshop decided to have a up to 50% sale. And some of the items I wanted were 50% off so I couldn't help myself! I mean 50% is a lot! And i cannot be sure they will have similar sale when we are there. They didn't have this sale for Black Friday so.. I just had to get these.
First is the Mango Seed cream, I heard it's supposed to be really good for dry skin and it's supposed to be extra good for the winter season. The large one, 100 ml was 50% off so it cost 25 000 won and I also had a 10% coupon so I only paid 22 500 won!
The other two are the rice water cleansing oils. I have hard well of them and both were 50% off so I decided to get one of each, one light and one rich.
I know the light one is supposed to be for oil and combination skin but sometimes you never know so I want to try it out as well, as it was only 5000 won for a bottle.
The rich is for normal to dry skin.
I have heard a lot of good about these two so we'll see :)
One thing on my list has always been to eat Kobe beef, but you know it's expensive.
When I was a student it was out of my price range. Then the other times, I was too busy.
This time around we decided as a Christmas present we'd gift each other with a good meal!
I asked my bff who's living in Kobe to give me recommendations.
I mean.. better to ask someone who knows. Also she is good at finding places so.
She sent me a link to this place called Ishida, she said..good thing too was that they offer service in English. As neither my hubby or parents speak Japanese I think this will be good.
I made reservation online, on their website. They later confirmed back day/time.
And also we were asked to pay! Yes, in advance. But you can cancel but you need to do it in advance if you want your money back.
We decided on the lunch one, there are three different Lunch sets.
I booked the Choice Kobe Beef Lunch (Loin) 150g, Price ¥8800 (Aprox 80 USD).
The most expensive of the sets, but it will be worth it. With the meal we get the following:
A A5 Kobe Beef (Carefully Selected Kobe beef with BMS grade of 8～12)
・Kobe beef Mini Roast Beef
・Choice Kobe Beef Loin (150g)
・Fried Seasonal Vegetables
・Rice (w/picked veg. and miso soup)
※+500 yen to change to garlic rice
・Coffee or Tea
They have four locations close by, the restaurant will send you details on which restaurant you get a seat at.
All are located in Sannomiya area in Kobe.
Each location can hold 22-30 guests so it's very small but it also provides better service as they are to cook the food in front of you.
Twice is back with a new song, it's called Heart Shaker.
To me this song is a bit so-so, it's not like previous songs. I mean this one doesn't stick in my head like the others.
Also the lyrics are a bit, heard it before, nothing new and nothing that caught my attention.
Finally got my hands on the highly raved YSL cushion foundation, the most expensive I have ever purchased!!!But waaay cheaper (and surprisingly easy to find) in Sweden..compare to Asia where it's always sold out. Can't way to try...The sample showed greatness
I might have said it before, I got the flu...again!!!! so my memory is not fully working.
Anyway it cannot be mentioned enough, I'm so hyped for this product!
But before I start I will finish what I have already opened!
I do not like to waste products so I will try my best to be able to start using it!
FYI - The cushion is cheaper in Europe.
Original price was 500 SEK (aprox 56 USD), I got it on sale for 400 SEK (44 USD).
In Korea I think original price is 75 USD, and taxfree 61USD.
I love to follow Kim Dao.
Today I saw her video and wanted to share. So many of the items she shared I love or I want to try. And it's true. In Japan there are so many wonderful things that can only be found in Japan or Asia.
Sometimes I feel so sad it's so far away for me. But whenever I go to Japan I always love to go to drugstores and buy these items! Must buys and great souvenirs.
For you who haven't been to Japan yet, watch and write down on what you need to pick up!
Kao Megurhythm Steam Eye Mask
I love this one, I have all fragrance, but I prefer lavender.
Such an awesome invention. A great item to use to relax
Kanebo Evita Beauty Whip Soap
I have heard so much of this and I will try to pick it up this upcoming travel to Japan.
There are so many other ones out there, but it's so cute!!! also a perfect gift for any girl friends!
Daiso Silicone Moisturizing Mask
I picked this one up last year, it's awesome!
In Japan it cost 100 yen, 1 USD, this is so convenient! LOVE LOVE LOVE Heat Packs
These are big also in Korea. I have also seen them in Sweden but in Sweden they cost 10 times as much! I love these and always buy and bring home. I especially love the ones you can put on your feet!
Dr. Scholl Japan Medi Qtto Sleep Wearing Slimming Socks
Not tried but sounds nice. Still not sure if I'd use.
Will have to check the price when in Japan.
Kyusokubijin Cool Refresh Sheet
I have tried similar ones, but I want to try this brand, I have heard so many people rave about this one!
Hesokyu Lady Warmer
Sounds like something I need will see if I can find it.
I'm in pain every month!
MeguRhythm Steam Thermo Patch
I have used hot packs so far, but these sounds better. I will try to pick some up.
Especially good to have at work. It will help me get through the day ^^
Azuki no Chikara shoulder Pillow
Looks really nice. but only works 3 times!?
Shiseido the Collagen Drink
I have never been a fan of these drinks. But I have had so many friends rave about this. I have also been given one as a sample in Japan. One won't change anything, it was ok.
But not something I'd buy in bulk.
For some of you Labiotte is a new Korean brand.
Do you know Tony Moly? It's their sister brand and is more sophisticated.
I have heard a lot of good about their items so this is why I went all in on their 1+1 sale.
Also, the 1+1 was also a reason why I purchased so much.
Below you see some videos from the store, showing the products!
What's the worst thing ever? No matter age... You wake up or you come home and see that a pimple is coming your way! And you know you are to be somewhere where the look is important and do not want a red spot on your face.
I bough the COSRX Acne pimple master patch a few months back, but I do not get pimples that often so I have not used it until now. Or actually my hubby came home last Friday with a huge red spot on the side of his face. And I told him to test this out. First he cleaned his face with facial wash, toner and he also used the COSRX Pimple pads. Then he put one of these on. The next day it had turned from red to white. he washed and removed and put on a new.
On Sunday morning, only 2 days later, he took this off and had a very small almost nothing left! It feels like magic. I mean really.. how does this thing work?
So far I'm so pleased with COSRX products, all I have used I like!
And about this product I have heard so much good, but as you know with most items, you never believe it until it works for you! This truly worked on my hubby. We are so going to buy more in Korea! A pack of these in mixed sizes cost 3 500 won, aprox US$2,5?
When you have the patch on you can barely see it, we went shopping on Saturday and it was not noticeable at all!
If you can buy these where you live, I'd recommend you to have a pack at home, you never know when it hits you and to avoid scars, this is a great product to treat and remove your pimples!
My hubby told me I went overboard with my purchases this year.
But honestly I never do Black Friday sales, because... in the country I live, it sucks! Or at least for the things I want.
I saw a Chloe bag, 20% off which was good, still not the IT bag I want so it felt like a lot of money for an "ok bag".
For make up, I got 20% off the YSL cushion, will post about it tomorrow or later this week, but that was actually before black Friday.
For Black Friday I got this from Korea, lots of make up from Labiotte and Missha.
The other brands didn't have a good sale so I will wait for Korea with them. I think they might have good ones for the year end. But these were good deals, buy one get one, in other words 50% off!
I think I would have had maybe bought this much if I would have had visited the store, but some of them well be good presents as well so it's fine. All items with original price would have ended up at around 450 USD, but because of Black Friday sale I got it all for 225!!!! It feels so good and I cannot wait to try this out.
And as said, this is only a small amount of things I want to buy in Korea, I still have a long list of items. I cannot wait to go shopping in Seoul... 30 days to go!
