I spend about half the week at my boyfriend’s apartment, and lugging things back and forth is a real pain. Some time ago I had to bring over some clothing, and I’d wanted to bring my laptop as well because we’ve started playing Diablo III again (should I get the expansion? I feel like I’d need it if I want to continue having fun) and I’d prefer to join in rather than sit there and watch him play with our friends haha. But the only thing I had to transport it is a huge messenger bag, and it doesn’t fit in the tote I use to hold my clothes. I had to leave it behind that time because I wasn’t about to carry two giant bags plus my purse onto public transportation with me. So I decided to buy a laptop sleeve! I wanted a cute one with a pocket for my power cord and mouse, and eventually stumbled across this one by Babimini on Etsy. It was adorable but a bit pricey, so I added it to my favorites but held off in hopes of finding something cheaper. I never did find one that fit my 15.6″ laptop (and had a pocket) that I quite liked as much as this one though, so after I filed my tax return, I indulged myself.
Oy. It seems that I am a fail. A very big fail. Basically I have a whole bunch of stuff that I would love to write about, more product reviews. But it’s getting a little boring. So how about a life update?!
(No pictures because I am just super lazy)
Now the thing about me and life updates is that… there really isn’t much to my life. Well that is besides starting that new job, where I basically organize things that have to do with medical records. It’s very ~hush hush~ so I’m not gonna go further than what I’ve said so far. It’s exciting and troubling to know that any mistakes I make will be rather permanent. It’s extremely nerve wracking and I did make a few mistakes in front of one of the managers there so….. 😦 😦
On the brighter side I do have more time for things. Such as typing up more blog posts! Okay I was trying my hardest on this one about this Goldwell product that I’ve been using, and loving! But my hair just loves to give me issues. My hair has never been super curly, just wavy enough that sometimes it gets curls. But I’m pretty sure its processed to the point that it has just given up curls so… it just limply waves.
Also my face is clearing up so much!! I’ll make a skin care routine post one of these days. But I am sooo glad for this. It’s been hard to just not to smear a whole bunch of anti-acne products on my face and hope that it goes away!
FYI I have a very long list of things that I need to review but I’m a lazy butt and it’s so cold that all I want to do is curl up in a ball and not do anything. This is also why I am gaining the weight~ But I’m getting back on my workout grind so hopefully I can get myself to a healthier eating schedule soon too.
What’s up with you guyss? 😀 😀 😀
Clio is this really fun make up line in South Korea. If you know who Dara from 2NE1 is, she’s basically the face of Clio at the moment. Previously it used to be Lee Hyori, the queen. FYI: I want to be her because she is basically an amazing person. But this is from a while ago and I totally forgot that I had this on my camera.
Clio is not by any means a cheap store. It is pricey however they did have several deals But I did get a bunch of stuff
I don’t know how widespread of an event this is, but I know several big cities in the US participate in Restaurant Week. I believe it started in New York though! The idea behind it is that participating restaurants offer prix fixe lunches and dinners for a set price. Last year they raised the prices to $25 lunches and $38 dinners, but even so, it’s still often an opportunity to try out places that would normally be out of your budget! In NYC, it happens twice a year, during the winter and the summer. This time, I went to lunch with Yaling and then to dinner with my boyfriend.
Yaling and I went to a Mediterranean restaurant around Gramercy, called Barbounia. It took us days to choose a place because we wanted to go everywhereeeee. I ended up picking this one mostly based on the dessert choices, haha. No regrets – everything was fantastic (I tasted some of Yaling’s meal and gave her a few bites of my food – definitely everything) and I would gladly go back to try their regular menu! It was such a cute, cozy place too, with high, arched ceilings, chandeliers holding rows of (fake but still atmospheric!) flickering candles, booths covered with throw pillows, and cheerful music. I wish I hadn’t been too afraid to take pictures of the decor! social anxiety why do you do this to me.
Bread and olive oil that was super delicious. I hate it when restaurants give you awesome bread because then you end up eating all of it and filling up before your food arrives. But somehow I managed to inhale everything I ordered 😉
