I'm thinking of trying a new cushion. But I have no idea which one, I have been searching high and low and watching youtube has been fun, some people own most of the cushions..haha
So far I have only tried one.. One I know.. But the reason is that I have so many other foundation so it feels like a waste buying tons and not use. When travelling to Korea it's a bit annoying sometimes because the sales staff do not let me alone, I feel stressed when I look around so in the end I leave the store with only the things I know. It feels like a shadow behind me, I have nicely tried to say, go away and let me shop, but that usually means... pulling out 10000000000 other products for me to "try".
The one I have tried is the Innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion, I like it, then again I like Innisfree in general, so I could be bias?
Compare to their others, when this was released I was attracted to because it's easy to apply and works fine on my skin, it doesn't over cover so I have used powder as well.
I'm wondering which one to try out next, looking at the videos and reviews it's really hard to choose.
I'd really need to go to Korea and enter each shop I think but I cannot go to Korea for quite some time.
Have you ever tried Korean make up? If you ever visit Seoul, bring a large suitcase. They have so many make up brands so you will most likely get lost!!
I have gone through quite a lot over the years, started off with The Face Shop, Skinfood and Etude House as my fave shops. However over the years I have moved over to MISSHA, Innisfree and Nature Republic as my standard brands. I think their make up suits me more.
To me Etude is too pink and girlish. And their make up doesn't fit as good as they used to.
But I do buy a few things from there now and then. Skinfood I do not even set my foot in anymore, and Faceshop I buy a few things mostly face masks and nail products.
Over the years more and more stores and brands have popped up! To me I only go to new ones if I have heard or red about a good product.
Otherwise I stick with what I know and like. it's like KPop, I stick to my old bands, I'm too old to hunt (^^;;)
In the jungle of it all, here is a video below going through a lot of stuff.
But most are from the same stores, and I understand, ones you fall for a brand you kinda buy a lot from that store. For all non-Asians (or Asians who doesn't like to be pale), Lots of the base make up is very light and white! So base make up that fits can be difficult to find. My mum always say she looks like a ghost. But she loves the eye make up, nail polish, body lotions etc. So focus on those instead in case the "whitening" is too much for you :)
Some Korean brands (remember there are a lot more but these popped into my mind right now): 3CE, A'PIEU, April Skin, Banila CO, BaviPhat, Clio, Etude House, (the) Face Shop, HERA, Holika Holika, Innisfree, IOPE, It's Skin, Laneige, MISSHA, Nature Republic, Pera pera, (the) Saem, Skinfood, Tony Moly, Too cool for school
Once you have experienced Korean make up brands, I'm telling you, you will be hooked!
In Myeong Dong you can find at about 5 stores of each brand in the area. A bit sad in my opinion. There used to be a lot of other stores but now it's mainly make up. However if any item is sold out in one of the stores I'm sure you can find it further down on the street ;)
Don't forget to ask for Tax-free :)
Welcome to the wedding world!
Not new news to me after starting our wedding planning..
But the more I think the more sad I get, I mean it's a word and then the prices goes up a lot.
You can have similar items you want - venue, food, drinks and decorations.
I mean some people celebrate anniversaries with the similar feeling as weddings.
Sometimes you need to look for options high and low to ensure it's a good price, and you'll need to do it with a lot of time on your hand! If you have no budget then this is a NO concern for you.
I want to tell you, you want your perfect day but within a budget you really need to do your research.
You will always able to find cheap options :)
The excitement is growing fast in my heart! It was finally announced and my bank account went broke..haha Not only because of the dvd itself, I'm not that poor, yet!? :) But with an upcoming wedding there are a lot of expenses. Anyway it didn't stop me from pre-ordering this! I got the DVD Limited edition. I want the regular too, why does JE always have to make fans broke? I mean we want both! Oh well...release is May 31, not long to go :)

The day finally came, it took a turn due to recent events in Stockholm.
I got my shoes in time and I went to the tailor to get my wedding dress alternated.
Girls, be out in time, depending on shops/tailors it can take time.
The more work needed the more time. Also, if you get married in a busy season like me, yes..you need to be out in time. I handed my in on April 13 and I will be able to pick it up on June 2!!!
Almost 2 months!!! I have to say, they had A LOT of dresses hanging and they have other services too.
To be honest, in my opinion from what I saw and what they said, I wouldn't say that my dress require too much work! And it seems the tailor said so as well. I'd say it's because I have a part of a corset back which makes it possible to pull and tuck in. However some parts needed to be fixed such as length. Oh well.. One more thing to TICK off my list of things to do.
I feel happy and content! As I put the dress on at the tailor, I was in love, that dress is really the dress for me and I cannot wait until I will be able to wear it in front of the person I love the most!!
It's less than 2 months now... until I become "Mrs"
As 2NE1 came to an end I believe most of us felt, ok now what?
One of the best groups in Kpop has ended!!!
Still bumped, but happy Minzy has moved on and is presenting her own colours!
Here's her debut song, Ninano.
I found this on Spotify by chance, I really like this song.
Some days are good, other bad... this is life.
The singer herself describe the song as following: "Pretty Girl was inspired by my experiences growing up on social media and being constantly judged and underestimated based on the superficial, which is something I think a lot of girls are going through right now.
Being on the set of Pretty Girl with all of the amazing girls was so much fun, just hanging out and getting into trouble. We had a good time and I think it shows, especially in the shots outside where we got to be a bit sassier."
It started with the sounds outside my window, I have never heard so many police cars at once.
I turned on the TV and heard the news. What we had feared but had not idea when it would come had came. An attack nobody could have known! A single man, a man that should not even be in this country (he was supposed to be deported but in hiding) did something so awful!
It took 4 persons lives, several injured and also killed a poor dog!
Anger, anxiety, fear and sadness stuck us all.
What now? Is it over? The hours passed by and the city, country stood still.
The world I knew and the plans I had made was changed in a second. From nowhere it felt like a nightmare, it wasn't true. it couldn't be.
I'm happy all of my loved ones were safe, some were in the area when it happened. I cannot believe how lucky they were. But I'm thinking of all the ones who is missing a loved one. The ones who are not allowed to feel the relief that I and so many other do.
Thanks to the police force, doctors and outsiders who stepped in, who showed what they are made of!
They truly deserve a BIG THANK YOU!! Without you, Stockholm would not be able to stand strong today. Also thanks to all people sending thoughts from all around the world.
Yesterday many people gathered downtown to show, you can not take us down!
You will not bring us into fear! We are strong and you are weak. You will never defeat us. Enough is enough! We together are standing strong, for us and for them who will not be forgotten!
I hate that the rhinestones on my current keeps on falling out. The price to have them replaced isn't cheap either. And I found this by chance, it was marked down to 92 USD something.
For some reason my payment didn't work, so my friend bought it for me. She lives in the States and I was supposed to ship to her house anyway so it was ok.
Now I noticed the watch is more expensive than when I purchased it.
I got it a few days ago, although it reminds of my current Fossil one, I love that it doesn't have any rhinestones. And it's VERY pretty!!!
