life lately, September

October 9, 2015


Lately I've been into very feminine things. Chalk it up to age, I guess?


I had Korean BBQ twice this month. The first time was with family, the second with friends. And I finally know what kimchi tastes like!


I've been using these two Lush items a lot recently: Mask of Magnaminty and Jumping Juniper Shampoo Bar. I like them a lot! The truth is, I've had Magnaminty for quite some time.. way past its.. best before date, yikes. I've read on some Lush forums that it's still okay unless it starts smelling bad and stuff.. so I'm still using it. But I think I might have to throw it out soon, since it's getting too dry to spread on my face (and I'm scared I might get allergies or something). I'll do a proper review of both items soon!



I haven't been able to post a lot of kitty updates recently, but I'm happy to say that all three of them are doing well ♥




Last Saturday I attended Cosmania at SMX, my third (?) ACG event for this year. I haven't been attending a lot of local events recently, but I just had to attend this one because I really missed my Kawaii PH family! Also, because my favorite revolutionary girls, Seishun Kakumei, were performing! You can watch their perfs here and here!




With my LARME girls - Ashley, Mica, Kaye, ChiChi, and Nona


..aaand with the two girls I was most surprised to see at the event: Anne, because she's usually busy, and Kaila, because Kaila!!!! None of us had any idea that she was in Manila. I actually thought it was someone who looked exactly like her, haha! So glad to see her, even if it was just for a while!


Went home with free potato chips from Calbee + my Maki Nendo from Hubbyte Toy Store!! Isn't she the cutest thing? So happy (♡´艸`♡)

Hello October, hello birth month! I wanted to continue from last month's blogging streak and keep going strong with the posts, but I was way too excited at the thought of seeing all my friends at Cosmania again, so everything just flew out of the window. (I have a very low EQ, I'm sorry!) But anyway, since October is my birth month, I'll try my best to keep posting! For now, here's my monthly check-in of what I've been up to and into recently. Happy weekend, everyone ✿

Making: a list of blog-related stuff for October
Drinking: coffee (Great Taste White!)
Reading: Asian skincare reviews. I recently learned that cleansers with a pH of 5.5 or lower are best for the skin, which means all of my foam ones are out, and that I have to replace them with Hada Labo's, which has a pH of 5.5
Wanting: to dye my hair. Maybe black/purple..
Looking: forward to Comic Fiesta 2015! ٩(•̤̀ᵕ•̤́๑)૭✧
Playing: ESNO's "Release" while I type this entry
Deciding: whether I should buy a 40mm pancake lens or just go straight to something wider as a walkaround lens
Enjoying: Red Velvet's "The Red"
Waiting: for both f(x)'s and WINNER's comeback!!!
Liking: The Private Life Of A Girl's posts on blogging
Wondering: how I'll celebrate my birthday this year
Loving: my new Maki nendo! ♥
Pondering: how to manage my blog calendar for 2015
Considering: getting a curling iron for my birthday. I'm getting tired of my fringe looking limp all the time
Watching: right now - Haikyuu!! S2, One-Punch Man, Noragami Aragoto, and Running Man (still)
Hoping: everything goes smoothly til the year ends
Needing: to buy some new makeup brushes
Wearing: comfy clothes because I'm getting ready to run errands and it 31 degrees outside
Following: Kim Dayeong om Youtube
Noticing: that I've been slacking off on posts again
Knowing: I need to take outfit photos for the blog
Thinking: of buying N5/N4 textbooks in Kinokuniya
Admiring: this photographer's work. So dreamy!
Buying: nothing. On a shopping ban until December!
Getting: SUPER! EXCITED! FOR COMIC FIESTA! I just got news that Aian's application for a booth got approved, so all I have to do is apply for a blogger pass this year as well!
Bookmarking: KL's public transport routes
Disliking: that the LoveLive! Movie has limited screening times locally. It's only available in six SM Cinemas. SIX.
Opening: a bunch of tabs, still on Asian skincare
Feeling: really lazy. I feel like curling up beside my babycats right now _(:3 」∠)_
Coveting: The Wes Anderson Collection: Grand Budapest Hotel
Wishing: I had more time (and money) on my hands
