Slow lately

Standard

Don’t blame me for not updating so slow, I said I’ll try to update like at least once a week. Well, I thought I could at least manage that, only it turned out I simply couldn’t. I’m just so busy everyday!

Even with busy weekdays, I thought I could still get squeeze some time to blog during weekends, well, I wasn’t thinking clearly. Sept and Oct are the University Info Days Months in Hong Kong, and there’s a university I’m interested in checking out having the annual Info Day every weekend. And I’m just really tired after walking around in campuses all day, not really in a good state for blogging(unless you wanna read blogs venting about sour feet). And there’re just a lot of quizzes going on and homework(seriously, goddamn it!) in line.

I updated my beauty supplies lately with 2 lipsticks and a concealer. The lipsticks are Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Mauve it Over Lipstick and Sephora lipstick in coral, the concealer is the MAC Select Moisturecover(I bought it mainly because my current concealer is going to expired soon and Temptalia.com(the best beauty blog I’ve ever seen, I thought it was a beauty website with a team of people behind it in the first place, turned out it’s just a blog, and that’s just so shocking for me) recommended it). I’ll test it as soon as I can and write some posts about them. Don’t need to remind me, I know I haven’t written a thing about the Revlon Liquid Eyeliner Pen I bought(like a month ago?). I’m still testing it, so far it’s been great. I just wanna make sure I know exactly how it performs and my reviews are accurate.

I’m not going to make any more promises because I know I’ll most likely break them. I’ll try to update and get those reviews down as soon as I can but mind you, I’m really busy(sorry but trust me, I don’t enjoy it either).

Things to look forward to with the coming of September

Standard

I guess for most of us, September is never really a month that we would look forward to. Neither do I. But can we avoid the coming of September, which means the start of a new school year hence, more work ? I don’t think so, unless you can switch time back to the very first day of our summer holiday. Well, there’s really not much we can do about it except finish the homework we totally left behind in a rush.

Hold on, September can also means something else, something more cheerful than back to school. Here’re the things I look forward to in September, I try to remind myself of them so that I would feel less depressed.

1. Return of Glee Yes, I am a big Glee fan. C’mon, the show is fun! And the music is great! I love the Glee’s version of Rolling in the Deep, Hello and … pretty much every song that Rachel and Jesse sing. And I’m quite upset about the fact that Jonathan Groff(he plays Jesse) is not a regular yet, he’s like the cutest guy on the show and the best male vocal too. But I’m still welcoming the Season 3 of Glee with open arms.

2. Return of House I love House too. Who doesn’t? He’s a miserable sexy humorous MD. The plot of House is always great, surprising and never was a cliche in the show. What’s not to love? I’m hoping to see Masters too, she’s such a lovely girl. But that’s not very likely though.

3. Return of Gossip Girl  Well, Gossip Girl’s plot is quite cheesy I gotta say. Just that it’s still fun to watch, you know, with everybody dressing up and looking beautiful, especially Blake Lively! I have given up my hope on Gossip Girl will have a good storyline ages ago. To me, watching it is like watching Fashion shows, it’s all about the outfits. So yes, I’m looking forward to it.

Now, I look like couch potato. The top 3 things I look forward to are all TV series. Well, I enjoy doing complete nothing at all and just watch my favorite shows for a whole day. It’s relaxing. I’ll get tired of that after a while of doing so, but that doesn’t mean I don’t look for days like this.  Of course, there’re more than just TV series to look forward to.

4. MAC Pro Longwear (is longwear one word or not, I don’t know!) This line has been in the States for a really long time but not for Hong Kong T_T The line is coming on October, so with September coming, it’s a bit closer. I wanna try out the Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation so bad! The reviews have been so great and I just wanna try it out myself.

5. IPhone 5/ IPone 4S Apple is like the most genius brand in the world, always surprise people with unexpected things. I’m using a Nokia now, but I’m seriously consider getting a IPhone once I actually settle down in HK (instead of traveling back and forth). The phone companies here just offer a lot of tempting plans

I guess that’s all. I mean, if I can choose to have my summer back again, I would rather summer than September. But just look to the bright side.

My Very First Docs

Standard

P8210008

After years of yearning for a pair of Dr.Martens, I finally got one, the famous 1460, on 20th,Aug.  And it’s quite different from what I expected.

I bought it in Mong Kok, Hong Kong. A store I believe where I bought my first All-Star too. Not that I like that store very much, it just happened that I walk past by it almost every time I’m looking for shoes in Mong Kok and they had what I was looking for. Maybe I should put it in my favorite stores list, but then again, I really don’t go there, that store or Mong Kok often enough.

Back to docs. I always thought that docs should be very comfy, soft, the kind of shoes that once you put your feet in, you don’t wanna get them out. Well, I was so ignorant. I usually do a lot of research before I go shop for something, but somehow, it didn’t occur to me that I should go and see what others think about them. I just rushed into the store and ask for them. It was just so not me.

It’s different from what I expected,  but in a neutral way. Docs is very tough, not just the way it looks, but the way it feels too. I didn’t get the soft and comfy feeling when I tried it out in store, the leather was quite stiff(can you use stiff to describe leather?), it felt weird. Usually when shoes that hard are not good for walking, I felt fine walking in it but I can’t really scratch my ankles though.

After hours of walking in it, amazingly, I felt fine. I have to admit that I was tired, my feet were exhausted. But hey, I walked for over 10 hours! So you can’t really blame it on the shoes. Especially when I felt perfectly okay and totally ready for another long walk again after I sat resting for 20-30 minutes. That’s quite remarkable for a pair of shoes I would say!

Overall, I love my docs. Even though they are really stiff, they are still very comfy.

PS:

I can’t never understand how Agyness can stand like that in docs. I just can’t! If I stand in a posture like Agyness, my right knee will bend and my center of gravity will go to my right feet. Because, like I said, I can’t scratch my ankles in docs. I don’t know how she did it. Maybe that’s why she a supermodel.
