Time To Go Out

I found time to update! And eewwweee....I don't like this layout, but I wanted my pictures enlarge-able when clicked on so I had to change it. Haha, and this was the best I could do with my banner picture.
Waiting to go out right now so I just took a picture of what I did. Why are the colors all washed out!? -__-'
I'm almost out of my favourite lipstick (Maquillage PK705) so I changed it up to Lunasol 02 Coral Pink so I can savor the last bits of the Maquillage.

Tried to do a smoke-ish eye with lotsa silver shimmer.
Ayumi Hamasaki on February Vivi, gorgeous as always.

More Study, Less Blogging

School started on Monday and I'm already feeling so overwhemled by the amount of info I need to absorb.
I knew taking the TESL course would be difficult, but didn't think it would be that intensive. So many readings and so many things to remember and re-learn, namely grammer.
I was so embarassed during participation in my observation time because I didn't remember what "parts of speech" were and how to explain them!
When you've grown up learning English all or most of your life, you don't stop to think "A preposition is the words used to describe yadda yadda yadda.." I say that because I still can't remember it!! It just comes naturally to you and who really stops to think about what is what in a sentence?

With that said, I probably will be putting my updating to maybe 1-2 times a month. It's difficult to deal with this course especially when I have to cram a lot of info into 6 weeks.

On with the post...
A while back, I entered Katie's (GirlAboutTown88) collection contest and won! Yippee! This girl is super generous. She jammed packed the box with lots more stuff that wasn't even included in the prize pack =D Quite exciting for me because I've NEVER used MAC in my life! I don't think using eyeliner and the eyeshadow 2-3 times really counts haha. She sent me 2 pretty MAC lipsticks one including the LE Hello Kitty. Thankq Katie!!!!

Oh, she also slipped in a box of mini food. I let out a little scream when I saw it. This is super cute. I've never seen this set before, it's called "Special cakes for me" and you can probably guess it's a cake mini food set.
It's super cute and detailed! I immediately made room in my display case for it =) Thank you again Katie!

And before I head to do some more reading.. I thought I'd show you a picture of one of my cats sleeping with his little tooth sticking out =p His name is Wasabi, but I like to called him "bum bum" because he also sticks his tail and butt in the air whenever he sees someone.

That's it for now, hope to be back blogging some more soon, but for now I'm just gonna lurk.

BeautyQQ Inspired Bling

Happy (late) New Year!!
If you're a follower of BeautyQQ on YT, I'm sure you love her videos as much as I do, so I decided to do a look that was inspired by her.
Also you might have noticed that her dog, Fergie, had an injury, I hope she gets better soon!!
Queenie's videos are quite entertaining and she's definitely not afraid of being 37, did you see how gorgeous her skin is!? And just how beautiful she is?
Here's the video tutorial that I inspired me...

I numbered the steps for the shadow application. If you follow the video, you'll understand how it all blends together.
The only difference for me is I didn't line the waterline. For step 6, I blended both the jelly and powder shade to line halfway on the lower lash

1. Paul & Joe Pencil Liner Black
2. Paul & Joe Color Powder 062 (left side only)
3, 5. Jill Stuart Seductive Eyes in Seductive Doll 01
4, 6. RMK Jelly x Powder Eyes (LE) 05 Shiny Beige Brown

Since the silvery cream shade goes on last on top of the shadows, I made sure to pat it on top to prevent messing up the colors.
Oh, as a side note, the RMK shadows I used on the lower lashline didn't last, it was gone after a couple hours.

This is my take on it. It's not as "blingy" as her look nor does it stand out as much without falsies, but I like it the way it is.
