New week again

Festive In Death is out!  In Death is one of my favorite series by J.D. Robb.  I got it on Audible with my credit.  It is good.

Life is precious

I brought Gigi to work with me. :D  It is nice to have this little girl around.  We have had many breaks and she has been very good.  Had a Vietnamese sandwich and Thai Iced Tea for lunch.

All about positivity

Today's Jesus Calling is really good.  "I am always available to you."  "No matter what you may lose in this life, you can never lose your relationship with me."  Everyday there is something speaking to me in the passage, sometimes louder, sometimes softer.  But always something inspiring.

Just another reason I dislike the roommate

So after talking to a friend who has more knowledge about yard and stuff, I will be buying a bigger pair of yard scissors (or whatever they are called) and do it myself.  Because I know the roommate will not help.  Since I have told her about the situation, she has made no contributions at all.  And if it was like last time that she "complained" that "you should have asked me to help".  But notice when she said that it is per her schedule, if I wait until she is in the mood and availability, nothing will get done.  This is her "polite" way of not wanting to help.  That bitch.  That's another reason I do not like to live in a house with her, because end up I have way more work to do.  If Gigi was a human, I know she would be eager to offer help.  LOL.

Monday

Another week.  Still lots on my mind.  I do not like that.  So I have to remind myself to not worry about that.

Sunday, September 7, 2014

Arg

I am not in a good mood right now.  I think my vine in the back yard is murdered.  By who?  I don't know.  It is falling off the fence.  I just discovered that yesterday.  The backyard is very small and I don't go there everyday... because there is no need.  But I did yesterday and discovered the "horror".  It require someone with the tool to cut them off... they are quite thick and quite large (wide).  I was so annoyed and angry and worry that I didn't sleep well last night.  I think the neighbor may have something to do with it, but I am not sure and have no proof.  But I am going to move on and fix that some how.

All About That Bass

So this is the first time I watch this and I am already hooked.  What???

Thursday, September 4, 2014

Brow stuff

I got my brow waxed yesterday finally.  One thing I like about this Benefit Brow Bar in Ulta (vs the one I used to go in Macy.  Which I love the tech, but it is too far away now.) is that they don't push any products on me.  And now my brows look more define again.  Heh.

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

TV shows and other stuff

So yesterday I mentioned I was watching lots of shows.  And I want to talk more about them.  Ha.

Masquerade (H)

I must wear as many as manicure as I can before my skin is wonky. :P

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Post Labor Day

The long weekend disappeared too fast.  I didn't sleep too well, especially the house next to us is doing some work (like building a deck).  And it started making noises around 8 on Saturday and 7:15 on Monday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Is that even legal?  Anyway, we didn't do much.  I enjoy wearing my pj all day long.  And Gigi and I are just super lazy.  Watched a lot of different videos. Scandals, HP, Sailor Moon etc.

Dalek nail sticker decal

I really need to stop buying anything.  So far I have bought a pair of sunglasses, some nail decals and nail polish.  Not happy with my lack of self control.  But that's not the point of this post.  The purpose of this post is to show you my new manicure. :)

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Cute pic

I have been blogging for a very long time and Livejournal is my initial platform.  I still like it.  There are components from LJ that I wish is available on blogspot.  But oh well.  I found this graphic I had made for me way back then. :D

Initial review of Ice Roller

I had no clue what an Ice Roller is when I first heard.  Is it edible?  LOL.  No, it is not food, it is a beauty product which you put in the freezer and roll it on your skin.

This makes me happy

Even though Gigi is cute, she could be super annoying as well.  But I still love her.

This post is mostly for my own venting.  Releasing stress and what not.  My blog is my space to release whatever is on my mind, so here goes.

BB for Lips

Happy Monday!  Here is my random crazy blog post again.  I feel like I blog with no rhyme or reason.  I blog whenever whatever I like.  But oh well.

Deep Breath

Season 8 of Doctor Who is on!  I will be watching it shortly.  Oh yea.  I have my nails painted.  I think it says Doctor Who enough.  What do you think?

Initial review of Facial Paper Compress Masque Mask

If you have used sheet mask, then this should be familiar to you.  Sheet mask is a mask typically made with some sort of thin paper material that is saturated with stuff that's good for your skin.  And you leave it on your face for like 15 minutes.  So I thought what if I can decide what to put in the mask, that would be amazing.

Yay for Friday!  Work is busy and I am thankful and happy. :)

Today I wanted to talk about Gone Girl and a few other things. There will be spoiler about the book, you are warned.

A new week and a brand new day.  We are shooting for positivity!  Woot.

The weekend

It has been a productive weekend.  Lots of organizing and cleaning and shuffling things around.  Heh.  I am enjoying my time with the Gi alone in the house.

Sugar Scrub review

I wanted to write this post for awhile now.  I usually only review either when I love a product or hate it or when I am bored and have nothing to do. ;)

Yay for Friday

Wed-20140813

Thank God it's finally cooler.  It was like 90+ degree on Monday.  I didn't sleep very well, especially when a certain furry heater was sleeping right next to me.

Monday, August 11, 2014

This weekend

It is Monday again.  Too soon. ;)  But we are going to make this week amazing!!!

Nerd post

This post is about Excel and Snippefy.  Just a headsup.

Thursday, August 7, 2014

The weekend is around the corner.

Finished watching Divergent last night.  The movie is not bad... but I think the book is better.  Book is always better than movie in most cases.  And I also need to not think of the book when I was watching the movie.

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

Goodies

Today you get 2 posts from me, so I may not post tomorrow.  Well, I actually don't have a schedule.  I post whenever I feel like it.  And I feel like posting this now.

Tuesday

Today seems to be cooler.  Last nite it finally starts to feel "not hot" until 9pm!  Geez.

Monday, August 4, 2014

Hot weekend

I really don't care much for the hot hot summer, especially when we don't have AC.  Buuuut... a certain someone still loves the sun. ;_;""

Took my car serviced.  Got new front brake pad and a few other little things.  Love to keep my car happy and healthy.

Friday, August 1, 2014

TGIF

Yay.  And that today is pay day.  I already spent a lot of money.  All is good.  Got a few gifts for people and a few for me.  And none for Gigi (yet).

Jesus Calling

I really like this devotional book.  I have been a little behind again.  But again, I think the message came in the perfect timing. :)

Recent loves

What am I enjoying recently...

Monday, July 28, 2014

Skin update

I thought I would do a little update on my skin.  Sure, why not?

Summer is better for my skin.  Not perfect, but I suffer less.  My hands are so much better.  The blisters still show up from time to time on my hands (blisters are always a sign of what could come.  Yuck.), but it never develop further into full fledge eczema.  It still gets itchy from time to time, but again, not as serious when it was Winter.  My arms do get more itchy and then I get bumps.  Now my face is also getting some eczema.  Grrr...It is mostly on the side of my jaw... but not too bad.  I have been going makeup free for a few weeks now and it is surprisingly freeing.  I wear lots of lippies.  My current favorite is fresh Sugar tinted lip treatments.  Just bought a few new ones yesterday.

I use Metaderm eczema cream at least twice a day all over (sometimes on my face too) and throughout the day I will use various kind of moisturizer.  So all in all my skin is kind of "calm" now.  I am totally enjoying it (though I do not like the hot hot weather) and wear all the nail polish I can.

Weekend

The weekend is too short.  Gah.  It was a nice one though.  Went to baby shower on Saturday... which was a big (ish) family gathering really.  Yesterday I went a little shopping for myself.  But then it got too hot and I had a headache and took an Aleve and went to bed early.  But all in all it was good.  I watched a looooooooooooot of YouTube videos.  Like lots!

Friday, July 25, 2014

Another post for Friday

A few good pics.

Review of Aveeno positively radiant targeted tone corrector

I have received a tube the targeted tone corrector on the 11th to test out.  It sort of arrived in the wrong time, as my eczema has chosen that period of time to have a party on my face.  I do not have a lot dark spots, though I have some freckles on my face.  So I didn't start trying it out right away.

I have been using it for about a week now.  And I am happy to report that it does not bothered my face.  This is the most important thing whenever I try out a new skin product.  The product is a bit gel like and not sticky at all.  I did not use it all over my face, but just on my freckles. I have to say I did not notice any visible significant difference so far.  I am going to give it a bit more time and will update with any further development.


*I have received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Happy Friday

I choose to start the weekend early and happy. :D

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Hump day show and tell

First of all, I just want to say I am happy and feel good to be deliberately choosing to be positive.  So there.  And doing gratitude journal is amazing.  I highly recommend it.

Another day

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and it was in China Town.  It is nice to go to China Town again and go to my favorite stores etc.

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Half way through the work week

Good morning.  I drove in by myself today, as I want to get a doctor appointment today, so it is just easier to have my beloved car with me.  I want to also buy a journal for my devotion and/or whatever... like blogger/livejounal the "old fashion" way.  But mostly for devotion stuff. :)

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

As the week goes on

Last night was not as hot and I truly appreciate it.

Monday, July 14, 2014

Weekend

The weekend wasn't getting any better (weather-wise).  I took Gigi to have her nails trimmed on Saturday and her bum was full... but it is all good now.  Went to the mall to get food for lunch yesterday.  Didn't buy anything from Sephora. ;)  I did have an online order that should be coming tomorrow or so.  hmm...

Friday, July 11, 2014

Cherry ok for dogs?

I have now always look it up online quickly when I want to feed Gigi some fruit or veggie.  I normally don't give her any "human" food.  So I googled cherry the other day, and from the links I saw, cherries are ok as long as you only feed the flesh, no pit or leaves.  And I saw the following comment on my IG after I posted a little video of me giving Gigi some cherries.

TGIF

It is Friday.  Yay.  Looks like this will be hot weekend and the coming week will be hot too.  I do not like it at all.  Too hot affects my skin as I have been itching a lot lately and that does not make me happy at all.

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Skin update and other stuff

I haven't talk about my skin for awhile... so it seems.  Winter is always the worst for me, I think.  And summer can be annoying too when it gets too hot.  My skin (all over) has been itching quite a bit lately as it gets hotter.  I had some rashes on my face about 2 weeks ago from beauty product.  It took a week to heal and it's all better now. And I have not wear any make up since then.  It is freeing.  I grew up makeup less until I am 18 and even after that I don't wear makeup all the time, so I am totally ok with it.  But these years I have been wearing makeup rather consistently, so it is interesting to go without.  I am just happy that my face is back to the PF status.  That means "Pretty Face"... a term I made for myself N years ago when I had that horrible skin thing (I don't know what it was, but let's just say it is a very bad rash.) on my face and Chinese herb healed me.  So still no makeup and the hot weather does make it itch from time to time.

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

Happiness

You know what makes me happy yesterday?  I walked into my room after my shower.  Gigi was burrowed in her blankie, all you can see is part of her nose and her tail.  And she was wagging her tail like crazy. :)  She knew it was me coming back to my room and she was happy.  Little thing like that makes me happy.  Like she knew we are a team and she loves me. :)

Saturday, July 5, 2014

Agility

Gigi and I came out from our agility retirement briefly to enjoy a weekend of run and fun. :)

July 4th

Nothing exciting today.  But yay for independence and freedom.  Thank you to all that made this happen.  I really appreciate it!!!

July 4th eve

It is almost weekend.  We have no plan for 4th of July, probably watching Independence Day again.  It's a good movie.  I also want to finish Insurgent and at least one of my One Piece comic book.  And other stuff I want to do as well.

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

Too hot

Last night was not fun.  It was hot and stuffy.  The worst is the air is not moving in the house.  Felt like I was suffocating.  I am thankful I have a fan in my room and almost a fan in every room.  Even Gigi was feeling it.  She did not pant, she is not the type of dog that pant unless she is SUUUUUUUUPER hot.  She is weird like that, but she lay flat on her bed or the floor a lot and that's her sign that she is tired/hot.  But she still sleep under the cover.  Go figure.

Money Well Spent: Stick Man Jewelry

I can't believe I haven't share this little shop!

Happy Tuesday

It's slowly starting to get hot.  But I am always thankful that we very usually (is that English?  LOL) get a cool morning and the night will eventually cool down.  Also thankful that I bought a new fan (which is the perfect size for my lovely room) in April before it gets hot.  So yay.  Gigi loves the heat though.  Crazy girl.

Sucks

We did not sleep well last night.  Gigi keep getting up.  It was a bit warm last night, so I think that was the reason and then she was gagging a bit after 4, I had to let her get on the floor, she was going to puke on the bed.  WTF.  So the poor girl puked twice.  I thought I saw some of the sweet potato in there.  So no breakfast for her this morning.  She was puke-less for a very long time and I was very pleased.

Books

I have already surpassed the number of books for my Goodreads reading challenge.  I am so glad I love to read. I mostly enjoy mystery books, and I also love other type of books. When I was younger, I love 衛斯理... which is sci-fi kind of book.  I read a loooooooooooot of those.  And I also love a good love story.  But the majority of books I read then are Chinese books.  English books were a torture.  Ha.  But now I love both Chinese and English books.

I have been looking up ways to use my Erin Condren planner.  I am trying to maximize the planner.  I still use my Google calendar.  But I want to also use a paper planner and also to use it to track things (health, spiritual, etc).  I have use a small planner long time ago... I used lots of stickers and it was fun, so it's time to resurrect it again.  I gave away a lot of my stickers when I moved... I don't have to use stickers, but I love stickers...  So lots to plan and think about.  World's first problem. ;)

Monday, June 16, 2014

Whatup

Not much to write yet.  But I want to say that I have been enjoying Divergent.  I am half way through.  I wasn't having too much high hope at first, especially after my coworker told me she tried to read it twice, but couldn't.  LOL.  It was a bit slow, but I am getting into it now.

I have also found a few new great IG account I am following.  Currently I am limiting myself to 125 or so.  I want to be able to read/enjoy everyone's post and any more followers will drive me nuts.  I am aiming for quality over quantity.  So every new one I follow, I will have to unfollow someone else.  That is only for the good.

So all is well.  Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Happy Saturday

Yay, it's the weekend.  I am so looking forward to it.  I already have a stack of funny movies ready to go.  Yay.  Deliberately choosing to be happy.

Cute doxie

On a happier note, here are some cute pics...

Scary

Yesterday was a day that shocked me.  Around 3:30 or so I got a text from our security office that we are in a lock down.  And that it is not a drill.  So I locked myself in my boss's office.  And then I decided to look up what's going on.  There were casualties and it was emergency.  And shortly after that we learned that there is a shooting on campus.  My office building is not close to it, but I keep hearing sirens and helicopter.

Count Your Blessings

Being grateful is one of the most important thing ever in my opinion.  Even if you can't do anything else to feel better.  There is always something to be grateful for.  The author of The Secret is sharing things that can help you.  This is from their "newsletter", which you can sign up from their website.  I actually have the book, The Magic, but shamefully I haven't finish reading it yet.  So give a read below, what can you lose?  I will share more later.

Blog fixed

I talk about eczema on this blog.  Because that's part of my life.  I may or may not have visited a site called eczema skin remedies dot com (all one word and the web site) and apparently content from this jerk, a known malware distributor has been inserted into my blog or something.  And Chrome blocked my blog.  I really don't remember what I have done or have I done anything.

Sound

Here are some of the sounds that will make Gigi run to me :D
--cracking of any egg (hard boiled egg, not a raw egg)
--any plastic crinkling sounds from food packaging
--opening of the fridge door
--me asking if she wants blueberries/food/treats/cookies

:D

Woke up and my face was super itchy.  Arg.  Now it's red and all...and I barely covered it with MMU.  I do not need that on me at all.

New decals -- Samoyed

We have a new breed for our nail sticker decals. :)

House

I finally finished the series.  I am bitter sweet.  What should I watch next?  hmm...

I am feeling ???  Yup... ???

I also want to mention I dislike bobby pins.  They don't stay in my hair.  Poo.  I bought some "fancy" ones from Sally.  I hope they are better.

And I miss agility with Gigi.

marymaryhandmade review

marymaryhandmade has been on my radar for a very long time, since she made the cutest necklaces/pendants.  And when I accidentally found out she has a dachshund one, I had to get one.  I ordered on 5/14/14 and received it on 5/24/14.  It was not bad for a made to order item.  I love the packaging.  It came in a smaller box (see pic below) with the actual design stamped on the lid and it's nestle in a bigger box with lots of crinkle paper.  It's ready for gift giving.  The size of the dachshund is not small and not too big... just perfect to be seen.  I love it.  What I do not like is I have ordered the longer length, I actually should have ordered the shorter one (16-18 inches).  And I also do not like the lobster claw clasp.  I prefer the regular spring clasp... that's just a personal preference.  Overall I am very happy with my purchase and it's cute and go well with my dachshund jewelry collection.


This and that

A bit of this and a bit of that.  I am still feeling a bit off.  What's up with that!?

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Current fav books

Books I have been enjoying lately.

I have been reading quite a bit of book.  But these really resonate with me.

I've Never Been to Vegas, but My Luggage Has: Mishaps and Miracles on the Road to Happily Ever After.  This is a "Christian" book about being single.  It is also a law of attraction book.  It's everything I am and enjoyed all in one.  I feel so inspired by it.  It is amazing.
Jesus Calling. This is my daily devotional book.  There is a chapter for everyday.  It's written from Jesus's perspective and ends with scriptures.  Again, I really enjoy it.

On top of those, I still enjoy Sarah Addison Allen's books; Mr. Monk series; Harry Potter; Vampire Academy etc.

Happy weekend!  This is a lovely week for the most part so far.  So let's linger on the happiness.

ECG

So last week we went to the doc to check a lump Gigi has on her thigh.  Doc think it was the "side effect" of her rabies shot, that spot was where they injected.  While we were there, doc found out Gigi has a heart murmur.  :(  Things you don't really need.

Let's start the week right.  That's my goal -- to always choose to be on the positive side.

Quiet Time

I have been almost back on track on having my quiet time.  Which is just time for myself to read the bible, do devotion etc.  I really enjoy it.

Otterbox and Gecko Strips

So I figured since I bought a nice phone, I better protect it.  Well, I always like to buy screen protector and cases/cover for my digital toys.  I searched online to see what I should get.

Happy Friday

We are aiming for life to be moving to positivity and all good.

Currently

I am finally able to tell you I actually feel much better for real.  It's one of those "I feel nothing" feeling I was talking about before.  It is good to feel normal and ordinary again.  I also started to gain back the weight I lost.  ha.  I lost about 3 lb just that week, but gained at least 1 and almost 2 back. ;)  I am totally serious about getting into healthy again.  Though last night I binged a bit.  I am so lack of self control.  So it's today.  I had some green "smoothie" this morning (watermelon, blueberries, spinach and coconut water).  I shared some blueberries with Gigi.  She really loves it, it's so cute.

Monday, May 12, 2014

Life

So I have been looking deeper into life in general.  I find life is such an amazing gift and at the same time so unpredictable and fragile.  We need to live in the now.  Not to be worried by our past or our future.

Devotion

Some of my favorite devotions...

Prayers 20140505-20140508

More heartfelt prayers

Prayer 20140504

I have been mentioning that I have been in a funk in my spiritual life... and prayer is a big part and I haven't been doing so great in that either.  I have found that if I journal my prayer it helps a lot.  Being "high-tech" and all I did it digitally.

Heartburn

Yea, now I have heartburn too.  Looking for relief... here are random things I have found... not sure about effectiveness... since everyone is different.

iPhone 5S not syncing to Google contacts

I have my iPhone 5S since January (?) this year and it was working mostly fine.  But this week I discovered it won't sync my contact list from Google.  I linked my phone to my Google account for my calendar and contact list.  I love it.  Anyway... it was not syncing and that is not cool.  So I found the solution (which worked for me).  In this case, I am so thankful for the internet.

Bought MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC20.
Bought mini ice cube tray and chopsticks.

Still feel lousy.  Will be making doctor appointment.

You do not want to buy this

My old old old trusty MP3 player died.  I have been using it as my radio, since I can't update the software any more, so I can't update my playlist, so I use the radio function... but like I said, it died.  Do you know how difficult to buy a small normal/regular radio?

April Favorite

I don't do it very often... but sometimes I feel like doing it.  Though my products may not be too exciting, because I don't get too many new stuffs.  Here are some old ones I have done.  And some of my fav are not what you expect.

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Shopping

I am here to share a secret with you.  I always get paid a day early.  I don't know exactly how the direct deposit works... but I think my financial institution just like to transfer the money to me a day earlier.  So anyway, I got paid today and I already spent a bunch of money.

Feeling better

I am feeling better today.  Yay!  Like I said before, it is great with the "nothing" feeling... that is when everything is blended in and I don't feel anything sticking out.  If you know what I mean... I can't explain.

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Framy

This is a new app that my friend on IG told me about. :D  So I made a few.

Monday again


Megaesophagus

So megaesophagus is the condition Gigi has (see my post from yesterday).  I have decided to do a little more digging into it.

Sunday, April 27, 2014

Dentist

Gigi had her teeth cleaned yesterday.  I was worried. I always get worry when she has her teeth cleaned.  Because it involves anesthesia.  Being a worry mom is my job.

Friday, April 25, 2014

Happy Friday

Yay it's finally here!

Sunday, April 20, 2014

Sunday Gigi

We can't go without a day without pics of naughty Gigi. :)

Health wealth

Health wealth is one of my resolutions.  And I am not doing very good this year so far.  Health wealth in my definition is abundant in physical and spiritual and mental health.

Saturday, April 19, 2014

This weekend

Hellllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooo.  I was taking 2 sick days on Thursday and Friday.  I am finally feeling better.

The week is going slow.

How Frozen Should Have Ended

So true... :D

Irritated

My nose has been feeling funny.  So is my throat, I have some mini sore throat.  Considering the nose and throat are all connected... so who knows.  I hope it is not allergy.  I never have allergy, but I know those can come whenever it wants.  I have a patch that is under my left eyes for MOOOOOOOOOOOOOONTHS.  It is getting more irritated lately.  That does not make me happy.  I think that is a minor eczema patch.  Damn.  I also have 2 dry patches on my forehead.  Grrr...

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Productive weekend

I love weekend.  Time to relax and do nothing.

Friday, April 11, 2014

Feel Fantabulous Friday

Yay, it's Friday!!!  Awesome.  I was going to say Feel Good Friday... that sounds better, but I want it to be FFF, so it's Feel Fantabulous Friday. :)

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Happy Thursday

Weekend is right around the corner!!!!!!

Lippie haul

I received another package today.  I am a sucker for packaging.  Sometimes I buy certain things just for that reason.

Haul

I have bought way too much stuff this month and I need to stop.  Bought buncho from Sephora.  Bought books.  Bought gadgets.  Bought this and bought that.  STOP!

Monday, April 7, 2014

Skin update

My hands have been doing good.  I don't take anything for granted any more.  I am enjoying and thankful for the trouble free hands.  But the blisters are back.  This is a bad cycle for me.  They are not itchy or anything (yet) and there aren't a lot of them.  I am wary because the cycle always start with these bastards.

Weekend is always too short

That's always the case, isn't it?

Friday, April 4, 2014

Life

WTF.  I am still in the funk.  Not as big, but still in it.  I remember when I was all pumped and positive.  And I want that again.  I am not totally drowned in despair or anything like that.  But I would like to be more YES... if you know what I mean.  I just want to up it.  I want to have a flourish quiet time. So that is my goal to move to the light.

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

Random

April Fool.  Just another pointless day as Halloween in my book.  Key words:  my book.  If they are huge for you.  Yay for you.  For me... MEH.

Monday, March 31, 2014

Another week

The weekend was so short.  I didn't do much on Sat... just relaxing and what not.  Sunday we actually went out for a walk.  A mini one, but still... we haven't walk in a long time.  We used to go to the dog park everyday (mostly just do our walk and play ball) or just go for walks.  I miss having time with my girl.  Her nose was dripping during the walk.  LOL.  But I think she enjoyed it, cuz she wasn't dreading.

This appears to be a popular tag on YouTube.  I have posted what's on my phone before  But here is my current content.  I have just (as in yesterday) reorganized them  too.

Stupid itch would not go away

I had plan last night to do some soul searching, but a certain part of my body was so itchy making it difficult.  So annoyed.  Will try that again tomorrow.  But earlier.  I need to go to bed early in order to wake up semi refreshed.  Anyway.  Eczema can go to hell.  Also who would have known how much flakes can come from a hand.

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Fun day with Gigi

Last night after I came home from work.  I fed Gigi and then I sat down and eat my dinner and then the little miss did the "sit pretty" (that is when they sit on the butt and upright) and looking at the hedgehog toy on the top of the fan.  I was surprised she wanted to play with it, so I gave it to her and she had a ball for several minutes.  It's always fun to see her initiate play.  As I have mentioned before, she is all about food.  She will play if I play WITH her.  That is good because I don't have to buy her lots of toys and that she never destroy any toy.  The worst was that she removed all the pomp pomp from a spider toy (the pomp pomps were the feet).  :)

Monday, March 24, 2014

Hello Monday

I want to share a very cute video first. :)

Favorite lip balm

My taste changes and I thought I would share what my current favorite lip balm.  What I look for in a lip balm is texture (I prefer slightly waxy over slicky and oily ones); ingredients (I prefer natural); design (packaging); taste (prefer no taste, because it doesn't do any good healthy-wise... but I don't mind it too much); color (unless it's a "lipstick", otherwise I don't care at all) and price (if it is good, I don't mind if it's a bit expensive).

Watch out for Save The Panduhs

I didn't want to bash anyone.  Just a disappointed customer.  I ordered a hat from Save The Panduhs in December, 2013 and today is 3/20/14 and I still have not receive my order.  And he completely ignored my emails too. :(  I can not even report to paypal, because it was paid as "gift". I have bought from him before, it may be a bit show, but I always get my order.  So I don't understand why he totally ignore me this time.  Lesson learned.  Can't really recommend him any more.

New week

Another week.  I stayed home yesterday, as I was super itchy and painful and tossing and turning... so I didn't get much sleep and I was still extra itchy and painful.  I am sick and tired of the roller coaster.  I was so happy it was all better last week and now it is all over again (not as bad... but still).  Arg.

Saturday, March 15, 2014

Weekend

I am so glad it's the weekend.  I had big plans... like reading, watching Catching Fire, laundry, taking Gigi to have her nails trimmed etc.  Haha.  I am proud to say a lot of them are being completed... more fun stuff to do tomorrow.

Friday, March 14, 2014

iMessage

Have been using iMessage on my phone to chat with my mom's iPad.  Just want to record on the how to etc for my own reference.

Ups and downs

My skin was getting better, but seems like it's slipping a bit.  Sigh.

I am back to getting bleach bath and salt bath and lots of moisturizer and prayer.  Frucking eczema.  My diet did not go so well.  LOL.  But I managed to have no coffee today.  So 1 gold star for me.  The so called "diet" is from way back then when I went to the Chinese doctor... from my fading memories:  no beef, no shell fish, no spicy, no greasy, no deep fried, no coffee... and there are a few more things.

I think I am done with my tax.  Just need to file it.  I will let it sit a bit longer... will probably file by Sunday.  I am starting a 2014 file too.  Go me.  And another gold star.

And tomorrow is Friday!!!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Random thoughts of the day

Totally random... but I want to record it.

Monday, March 10, 2014

Eczema update

Skin is still recovering and healing.  It was much better than 2 or 3 or was it 4 weeks ago when it was at its worst.  So I am thankful.  It still itches, but the bumps/patches is mostly gone... all is left is a faint red color.  You can still see it, but much much better.  But let me tell you when you are feeling "nothing" (ie:  not feeling any itches), that's the best feeling.  ;)

Daylight saving

Each week is going by so fast.  Yikes.  And daylight saving was yesterday and I hate that we have lost an hour.  I don't care for it and I am so tired this morning.

Friday, March 7, 2014

TGIF

Yay.  It's Friday.  I am slowly starting to feel better.  I was in a funk... for a long time now. :/  It was so funky that I think it was one of the reasons that my eczema was all wonky.  And I was having difficulties doing my taxes (but now mostly solved.  RELIEVE!) and this and that and  whatnot.  But the key is I AM FEELING BETTER.

Skin is not completely healed and there are times I need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and when I came back to my room.  This sweet face is always there waiting for me.  She wouldn't look at me, but her tail was wagging. :D

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

Obsessed

OMG.  I am obsessed with this movie. :D  So glad I watched it (by myself) on my birthday. :D  I don't go to the theatre much any more... but like I said I am glad I watched this and will definitely buy the DVD when it comes out.  Woot.

Monday, March 3, 2014

Power charge

I am a big fan of God and a big fan of Law of Attraction.  They have changed my life.  I adore them.  I love them.  Though I admit that I am currently (for awhile) quite down. :(  So again, I do my research and posted videos that will pump me up.  So yes, this post is mostly for me again.  If I don't do it for me, who will???

Sunday, March 2, 2014

Saturday

We went to the Outlet yesterday.  I do not particularly like shopping, unless I need something.  But I went anyway.  End up I bought the most stuff.  LOL.

Friday, February 28, 2014

Breakfast

Just want to share a photo of my breakfast from this morning.  So yum!

Eczema update

So I got this real big flare up about a week or 2 weeks ago (or maybe more???).  I was doing mostly good and my majority problem was my hands.  Then suddenly BAM, it's all over, everywhere, big time.  When you see pics of eczema on the web, with the red, angry raised patches... that's me... everywhere.  But I am very thankful it's not on my face.

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Eczema sucks

Aren't you tired of all these E-$h!+?  I am.  It's an ugly roller coaster ride.  I have already know that it can not be cured, but managed.  It won't kill you, but certainly can ruin your life.  I have been keeping track on this blog and also on a real journal thingy. :)  It will be beneficial to myself and fellow sufferers.

Monday, February 24, 2014

This weekend

How are you?  Did you have a good weeekend?  Mine was lots of rest, because I couldn't sleep due to itching.  Joy oh joy. :/

Random thoughts

I am a mind wanderer.  Good thing?  Bad thing?  Don't know.  But I like to think of myself as a philosopher sometimes. ;)

This weekend sucks

My eczema has flared up big time everywhere and it's unbearable.  It keep me up at night and it's itchy all the freaky time and I am not happy.  This also makes my 3 day weekend sucks even more.  Ballz.

Hi.  Telling you about my week with photos.

TGIF

Helloooooooooooooooo Friday!  This morning I found a sprinkle of flurries (?!) on top of my car.  It's not sticking and it's soft and once the windshield wiper wiped off what's on there, there is no new ones.  hmm... I want to have a dry (rain ok) rest of winter.  I am looking forward to Spring!

Anxiety

I am not sure if that's even the right thing. :(  But it happened again, thankfully it was very brief.  I immediately sprayed some rescue remedy on my tongue and walked out of my cube and try not to think about it.  The set off was so minor and weird...I had some lettuce stuck inside my teeth and the feeling of me not able to remove it (don't have my special floss thingy with me.  and trust me, I am getting one for my purse!) was the trigger, I think.  I think having this overwhelming and crazy started a year ago.  Thankfully I only had it a handful of times... but that's more than enough.  Every time it happened, I felt super overwhelmed and that I am going crazy (but not really) and that trigger was super intensified... usually it didn't last too long if I can get away and try to distract myself.  I don't recommend getting anxiety at all. :/

By now we should all know SeaHawks won Super Bowl XLVIII last night.  Score was SeaHawks 43 and Broncos 8.

Random fun stuff

I am still loving my new phone. :)  Why wouldn't I, right?  I still keep my old phone.

Makeup sponges

So I bought a Real Techniques makeup sponge, as I heard they are really comparable to the Beauty Blender, but way cheaper.  Now that I have both, I can tell you a bit of what I think.

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Hello.

Didn't sleep too well last night and the day seems to be kind of blah... but it is turning around.  I was reminding myself:  don't assume for the worse automatically.  And it worked.  It is so easy to think of all things negative... but it is also very easy to turn that thought around.

And then I rediscovered this post I did in 2010.  So nice. :D

Monday, January 27, 2014

Happy weekend

Just some random things over the weekend...

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Happiness is...

Having a good dachshund.  :D  She amazes me every day.  This morning after our morning routine... we went back up to our room.  There was my bed and there was her bed on the side.  She always prefer my bed.  And she was ahead of me, I told her "bunbed" (that's what her bed is called, you can read it here.) and it's always a 50/50 which way she goes.  I saw her looking at my bed and then chose her bed instead. :)  Life is all about making choices, right? :)  This also show me once again that Gigi understands.

Sunday, January 19, 2014

New phone

I love my gadgets, but I got my first iPhone only 2 years ago.  It was a 4S and it was great.  And 2 years later, I am getting another new one.  Because the power button of the 4S is kind of stuck (same issue with my iPod nano, which the button is COMPLETELY stuck... this one is not as stuck), plus I am running out of space.  I am proud to say that I am no longer one of those who need the phone (or whatever it is) the day it is released.

Thursday, January 16, 2014

Feeling better

I know how a lot of people saying 2013 is not for them and how they are looking forward to 2014. Blah blah blah. :)  I think my wonderful 2014 is slowly showing me her light.  Again, I am choosing joy over blah.

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Empties

Time to clean out my junk in the room.

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Things that makes me happy


  • Gigi--her personality, her love and cute look
  • Mom-her love and kindness
  • Monk-the books... it makes me smile.  My favorite OCD detective.  The current one:  Mr. Monk Gets on Board, I am half way through and it's so much fun.
  • Pouches.  Especially the dachshund one that I rediscovered from my stash.  It's like a new toy all over again.  Also I find that I can wash them in the washer when I put them in those mesh bags.  
  • Make Up For Ever Super Matte Loose Powder-it really keep my face matte.  And I love it.
  • Lippies-they make me feel girlie and keep my lips smooth.  A surprise favorite is Dior Creme de Rose lip balm.  I bought it based on the good things I read and I decided to splurge and it was very nice.  I use it before I go to bed.  NYX butter gloss is also great.  And Maybelline Elixir lip gloss.
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation.  Again, I bought it from what I read online and it is great and affordable.  A great find.
  • iPhone 5S. I don't have it yet, but I am getting it.  My phone is still good, but the power button is kind of stuck lately (same as my iPod Nano, the 6th generation.  So sad.) and I am also running out of space... so it's time.  And I have been prepping myself for it (reading on the manual, accessories etc).  LOL.  I always do this when I am getting ready for a new gadget.
  • Music.  Can't live without them.  I am not as well versed with American or your pop music here in the US, but I love them.  Music is powerful!
  • My job. I am blessed to have this job.
  • YouTube.  I am into YT a lot lately and have found a bunch of channels I enjoy following.
  • Sigma Dry'n Shape-helps to dry my brushes faster.  It depends on the brush, some dry faster than the other.  It claims to dry within 4-6 hours... I am a bit reserve on that claim.
  • Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove-I love this.  It keep my hands dry (I wear gloves on top of this.  LOL.  I have eczema, so I take all the precautions.) and clean my brushes really well.
  • Metaderm cream.  Still love it a lot.  And I still use my other lotion throughout the day... but I will use this the first thing and last thing in the day.
  • Faith.

Bag Lady

I am a girl of many "identities".  One of them is BAG LADY.  I love bags... handbags, purses, totes, pouches etc.  I just love them.  I have a lot of old ones and new ones and I also had given a lot of them away.  Anyway, I LOVE THEM.  So many uses and I am in love.  ha.

Weekend

Last night we were invited to one of our uncles' house for dinner to celebrate his new kitchen.  Yesterday the weather was nasty.  I know there are many places have nasty weather as well.  Our power was out for a few hours.  So was my uncle's.  We were not sure if the dinner will still be on.  Anyway power was back on and we are going and Gigi is allowed to go.  She was being a good girl.  She was mostly on my laps and under supervision.  I know my girl and if I let her roam, she will be looking for any edible in her mouth or to beg others for food.  Anyhoo.  She was a good girl, and even grandpa was praising her. :D

Lip gloss

Today I am not feeling my best.  Emotionally.  2014 has not been on my side so far.  I am just not feeling it.  And I do not like this feeling.  Again, I am intentionally and deliberately CHOOSING happiness and joy.  In with the gold, out with the black.  That being said, let's move onto more interesting stuff.

Wednesday, January 8, 2014

This and that

This year is all about JOY and happiness.  It seems to be challenging so far, but I CHOOSE to go with the light, not to the dark alley. :)

Luckiest mama

I am the luckiest mama to be owned by this amazing dachshund.

New lippie find

I like lippies, you know that, right? :)  I love great lip balms and wonderful lipsticks.  Lip gloss is a bit tricky for me, sometimes I find them a bit too "milky" on the lips... or it does not have an even coverage, or that it's super sticky... but of course that totally could be my application. But I think I have found a new fav.

Monday, January 6, 2014

Current Walking Pharmacy

Felt like sharing my slightly updated Walking Pharmacy.  I have an "original" one, but that one has lots of stuff, which is not as much purse friendly as I would like... so this is a more condensed version.  I put everything in an affordable makeup bag I got from Walmart.

Sunday, January 5, 2014

Weekend

So I finally watched the regeneration episode of Matt Smith.  Awww.  I did't cry.  Because honestly, there are things that I was a bit confused.  LOL.  But I am all good now and I will miss Matt very much.

How to be happy

Recently I started following Nikki Phillippi on YouTube and Instagram andshe will be doing a #howtobehappyjanuary.  Totally fits my new year goal--be in the positive.  And little things have been making this working for me.  For a starter... BE THANKFUL.  Say thank you to everything and MEAN it.  You don't have to say it out loud, but the key is the feeling.

Thursday, January 2, 2014

Arg

Even though today seems to be not as smooth as I thought.  But I am not going to let it affect me.  I am going to work on my LOA and I am going to actively start picking it up.  Go me!

Wednesday, January 1, 2014

Happy 2014

It is here!  Let 2013 go bye bye and start new and fresh this year.  I don't have a specific list of "resolution".  The main goal is to be in the positive.  The finer details are in my head and no need to type them all out for now. ;)  Me and Gigi will make the best out of 2014.

Sunday, December 29, 2013

Hello.

Hello all.  I am really enjoying my after-Christmas extended holiday.  It's nice to sleep in and be as relaxing as I can.

Visiting the nurse

Went to visit the nurse practitioner (who awkwardly is also a friend... sort of) today... she said my lungs are clear and thinks that what I have is a virus, and it should go away by this week.  No meds needed and I can still take my nasal decongestant if needed.  And we chitchatted about other things.  It was sort of fun.  She happened to be sick yesterday too.  So we were coughing together.  So awkward.  LOL.  But I am happy to know that I will be ok. :D

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

What is wrong with me

Today's post is totally random.  Because random is awesome.

Anyway, I have noticed for the past week, I have been "shopping" every work day after work.  Not like big time shopping.  But a bit here and there at Target, Ulta, Walmart etc.  Gah.  I did use all the things I buy.  But stillllllllllllllllllllllllll.  I don't even remember what I have bought.  Sheesh.  So low buy is on again!

My voice is still lost.  My nose is not too bad though.  Made an appointment with the nurse at work to check it out.

This morning I used my new Totally Toffee from Maybelline.  I think it's a bit too nude for me.  But the formula seems very nice.  And I also bought Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.  It was under $4 and it seems to work great!  So yay.

Well, that's it for now.

Makeup

Just want to share what is my current make up routine.

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

My pants are too big

Arg.  So... where should I start?  I do think I am fat, but not obese.  But a looooot of people tell me I am not fat.  Thanks.  Really.  I used to be very skinny when I was in highschool... but things changed when I move to US.  Anyway, my weight is always yo-yo-ing.  But currently I am not dieting or anything.  Though I want to get on some diet for my skin.

My updated Skin routine for eczema

This post is mostly in regards to my hands, but it can be also happening to the rest of my body too.

First impression on NYX Butter Gloss

This type of "first impression" is a new thing for me, so they will probably be quick and sweet.

Friday delight

TGIF!  Yay.  It's Friday, I have so much planned to do.  I am sort of excited.  I am mostly done with Christmas shopping.

First impression on Dream Cream

Howdy!  Good morning. :D

I have figured out I better do a LOW buy, rather than a NO buy... because that's setting up myself for failure. :/

Current mini favorites

I find that I like to record things I enjoy.  It's like a thankful post!  It keeps me happy.
This is going to be a long post, I hope you enjoy.

Today's inspiration

I have queued up a few post for this week... but here is an inspiration post for you. :D

Empties and some favorite

I have been keeping tracking of items that I have finished for a long time and never knew that people would do YouTube videos about those.  Ha!  But that makes sense, if you used up something, at least the product has to be a little bit good.  So I am doing a little blog post on my empties.  These are just the ones I have kept for the record and I have used up many many items before this.

This weekend

Hello.

Have you heard of all the "hype" of Luvocracy?  It's sort of like a Pinterest, but this one is more for products you like, and other people can buy them directly from your post. I am just starting to use it, so I am not 100% sure.  But this is my page.  I don't have a lot of stuff.  So take a peek if you wish.

Mid November Favorites

I decided to share my mid November Favorites with you.  And these are the items I am thankful for.  2 birds, one stone.  Some are old fav, and some are new. :)

Whatsup

So I haven't been updating on my Give Thanks post.  SHAME.  I know that (FOR A FACT) gratitude is so important and powerful and I treasure.  Even though I didn't post, but I do actually say a little thank you whenever appropriate. :)  And I also FEEL thankful... so it's not just word.

Review of Metaderm

I don't think I have done many "formal" reviews.  Afterall, I am not a "professional" blogger.  But there is a first of everything, right?  Or this is still not an official professional review?? ;)  But this definitely can be labeled as one of my "Money Well Spent" post. :D

What I am Using Now Tag

From time to time I do a tag here and there.  And here is one. :)

Walking Pharmacy

Hello.  I am happy to report that last night is the time I actually feel that Gigi is 100% back to her old self.  I am so relieved.  :)  And we played ball for 10 minutes, it was a precious time I enjoyed with my little girl.  We don't do that enough.

Hello everyone.  It's Monday again.  Even though we "gained" (really?) an hour, I don't feel that much more alert.  Oh well.

Give thanks-20131101

It's November already.  Wow.  So I will be doing "Give Thanks" posts again this year. Being grateful is a powerful tool to attract all good things in your life.  It makes you feel good and the good feeling will snowball the positive effect of attracting all good things.  My items may be detailed with stories and pictures or be brief or even cryptic.  ;)  I may even come back to add more.  Whatever works. :D

Halloween look back

These are from 2006 (apparently).  PetsMart are doing their photoshoot there, so I dressed Gigi up as Officer Gigi.  She didn't win the contest, but they have a back drop for the pup to have their pictures taken.  When it was Gigi's turn, she won't sit still and was being a pain in the butt in general.  The staff there was nice enough to let us redo it... but of course they ran out of their Polaroid film... and by the time it was ready, Gigi was actually bored and just sat there.  LOL.  She asked how is Gigi so cooperative now and I told her it's because she was bored.  LOL.

Rally 20131029

Last night was rally night.  Rally is one of Gigi's favorite class.  She loves to work and see her favorite people.

Itchy

Since I posted my eczema post yesterday, my hands and everywhere has been super itchy. It's not fun and also painful.  Gah.  So lots of Booda butter today.  I also have been using Neosporin on my finger tips where they crack.  Ouch.  The pic on yesterday's post was mild.  Today not so much, so there will be no pics.  Ha!

My eczema guide

I want to do a "centralized" eczema post about my experience.  Mostly for my own record and also it may help others who is also a sufferer.

Lipstick tag

I was browsing the net and found this You-Tuber. ;)
I am not as precise as she is... but here is my version.

Nail of the week

I did my nails over the weekend!  It is now a big thing when I do my nails (insert eye rolls).  First of all, because of my eczema... it's like a roller coaster ride (like today, it's super itchy)... it's getting better, but not well enough.  And my nails are not smooth.  There are dent and grooves.  Not sure why... but they ain't pretty.  Oh well.

Friday, October 25, 2013

TGIF

Happy Friday!

The never ending trying to take a good photo with Gigi continues.  And I got a pretty good one with my girlie.

Teefury

We are featured on Teefury!  Yesterday they posted a pic on Instagram that "We want to see pics of you, your TeeFury shirt, and your pet!"  We just need to tag our pic with "#teefurry".  I have one on my stream, so I added the tag and we were featured. :)

More lippies

As you may (or may not) know... I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE lippies.  That includes lip balm, lip stain, lip stick.  I haven't been wearing much lipsticks for a very long time, but now I am back in the game and has bought a bunch.  I prefer subtle or YLBB colors, but I do have a few brighter shades too.

Fall is here

The weather is getting cooler.  The leaves are changing color.  Fall is here.

I haven't do much with my nails lately.  But I did this weekend.  And it's quite nice.

Random Health Stuff

Just came in from my dental cleaning this morning.  Everything looks good... but I need to go back to "fix" my gum.  I never like any kind of dental stuff.  Any kind at all.  But I am happy that I am mostly healthy.  Also learned that each tooth in your mouth is number.  It's started from the upper right side (your wisdom tooth)... it's number 1 and then go across... making the leftest wisdom being 16... then going down 17 to all the way across to 32.  Basically it's counter clockwise.  So I need my #13 "fixed".

Also had my flu shot last Monday.  The nurses here at work are pretty good in giving almost painless shots... but flu shot always leave your arm soar... but not this time.  Maybe because I was listening to the nurse to use the "needled arm" more... so I did.  I was waving it, pumping it and just intentionally moving it a lot and I think it worked.  So I highly suggest it. :)

Gigi is always good


People suck

Yesterday, on my friend Lili's Facebook, she posted that someone named "Lori" stole and "embellished" her work and sell them as her own.  I personally has one portrait done by Lili with Gigi and Chilli.  All her drawings are commissioned by clients (like myself) and now they are stolen by jerks who tried to make a profit.

Happy 10th birthday

Today is Gigi's 10th birthday!  I am so lucky to be chosen to be her mother.  She is the sweetest, smartest and most loveable dachshund.  It has been a great journey so far and I am looking for many more.

Hello Monday

Yo.  It's Monday.  So much to do, so little time.  I am feeling good.  Or I should say I am aiming in that light.
I have been sick and not feel well most of last week.  I am finally back to normal on Saturday.  It took a week to get over this stupid cold.  Finally I have to use Mucinex to get rid of the "snot".  Taking lots of rest really is the key.  I didn't lost my appetite, but definitely not as much as I was fine... and I learned it the hard way or stupid way.

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Arg

Not the greatest day today.  The cold is still here.  And today my skin is super itchy.  I already made some new damages to my hand.  Boohoo.

Tuesday, October 8, 2013

Monday Blue

Ok, it's not as blue as it seems.  But I am running out of title names. :D  I have been sick since Friday night.  I felt the sore throat first (it's always the sore throat first for me) and then the stuffy nose came.  So I have this cold for 2 days now.  I wouldn't say it's the worst (thank God), but I certainly do not enjoy it.  Today I made some "shower soother".  Since I can't find them any more.  The idea is you dropped the tablet in the shower, the hot water and steam will activate and melt the tablet and the vapor (from the ingredients) will open your sinus.

Hello reader.  How are you?  Just want to share a little haul I did, because I was crazy.

Eczema Awareness Month

Do you know that October is Eczema Awareness Month?  I do now.  I think it's great to dedicate each month to different causes.  The color is purple (some say lavender or orchid) and orange.  I will see if I can do a manicure with those colors.

Chagrin Valley Soap

I recently placed another order with them.  I have been customers for a very long time.  Love their soap and salves.  Their lip butters are not bad either, though they are not my fav texture.  So I bought 2 unscented ones and hope they will do a good job with my skin.  As currently I am using Neosporin's body wash from their eczema line.  They feel moisturized on my skin, which I love, but they have SLS in their ingredient list, so that was not so great.  I am also interested in Cetaphil's Restoraderm line... I am going to check it out tonight.

Happy Wednesday

Hello to whom it may concern. ;)

Just random things I am liking (or loving).  You could say this is a "favorite" post.  But whatever. :)

Make up shelf life

Found some info online... mostly for my own benefit.

Doctor Who Series 7 DVD Boxset Minisode

I can't wait to get the box set (when it's out and when I have $).  But I found a minisode on YouTube. :D

Another interesting day

What an "interesting" day I had yesterday.  Like I said in my previous post(s) that I haven't feel my best (mostly referring to my emotional self, I know it's my indicator that I need to make some changes, so that is what I have been working on).  I also went to the doctor for some other issues...looks like I am falling apart, but be rest assured that that is not my intention and I am moving away from that. :)

Steroid or not

Still debating about whether to resume steroid or not.  I know most people say no.  I agree to most extent.  But I know it works for people.  It worked for my friend.  My problem is I used very little, because I am scared.  LOL.  And I don't use it very often... like only twice a day.  And I stopped the second it looked better.

Another week

The short weekend come and go.  It was not long enough.  I am dealing with some health thing, I hope it is nothing serious.  My skin is still doing about the same.  My hands are the real issue, as I have to use them all the time, it's hard to help them when I have to use them all the time.  I don't know.  One thing at a time.

Lipsticks

Hellooooooooo.  Like I said from my post from yesterday.  I am back on a lipstick kick.  Yay!
That means I probably will want to buy more.  Today I rediscovered my Chanel Mademoiselle lippie.  That's the only Chanel I have at the moment. I like the shade, quite YLBB.  {one, two, three,}  And I also order a few more yesterday on Sephora.  Yikes.  LOL.  But lippies are truly one of the easiest (and laziest) way to be "made up" and so portable!

I am having my eye on Boy (that's the name of another Chanel lippie) {link}.  That will be my next splurge.  Yay.

Wednesday catchup

I haven't blog in a few days.  Yesterday took the parents to the airport and the days before was busy with other things...

Friday, September 13, 2013

Happy Friday

TGIF!  It's a bit misty out there today.  My skin is somewhat getting better, but then not really... and I really love my lotion.  I am getting hungry, but I will be going out for coffee with my colleague... I am excited.  Try to expand my "friend list".  Ok, not in the sense of Facebook... Anyway.

Random post

My internet at home is being funky lately... it's slow and is unstable.  It happens from time to time and is driving me mad.  But I am looking into getting a new router.  Any suggestions?

Money Well Spent -- Flirt & Flutter Jewelry

Hello all.  Today is another haul post and a long-time-no-see Money Well Spent post.  Actually there are more goodies that are in this category... but I guess I have been slacking.  Or you can see them in my favorite post(s) too.  Anyhoo... what I am about to share with you is so exciting! :D

Rally 20130910

Yesterday was rally day.  We were excited to go and it was fun.  Only 3 students -- us, Nano (JRT) and Benny (mixed Rottie or something).  We did a course and we got 3 turns each.  It was fun.  During the last run, trainer was being "funny" and decided we should run someone else's dog.  And of course I got the big boy.  Which is fine... except my hands are still horrible (just went to the doc earlier yesterday)... and I have to keep feeding him and his teeth keep scraping my hands and saliva.  Arg.  It is definitely not good for my hand... so I winced a lot and the owner was like "he is a sensitive boy" (meaning my wincing hurts his feeling)... BUT his teeth hurt my hands.  If my hands were fine, this won't bother me at all (ok, the slime will).  Anyhoo.  We did good.  But please no more.  And they all knew my hands were "injured"... the after-the-fact of my wincing was a bit too late.  But it's a good lesson to try to train other dogs.  Gigi didn't like being handled by others... I have a little footage of her run.  She will tolerate being handled by trainer... but she likes ME the best. :D

Red Apple Lipstick Review

So I got my package from Red Apple Lipstick yesterday (it would have been a day earlier, but the PO was being stupid and it was "missent" (whatever that means)... but luckily I got it yesterday... because sometimes packages can really go missing even with tracking etc.

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Aren't you lucky to get another post from me?  Well, I admit that I am procrastinating to do my work. :P

It is Friday

Even though we had Monday off, this week didn't appear any shorter than any other week.

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

Meh

Hello.  Howdy.  Not much going on.  Last night we had dinner and had family over.  It was kind of crazy.  I personally is not big on entertaining nor having people over.  It sort of stressed me out a bit.  But it all went fine.  Gigi was being mostly good and I ate all the food I am not supposed to eat (by my own rule)--beef and shellfish.  My skin is not happy (well, it has not been happy in a very long time anyway).

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

Another week

So there goes the long weekend.  It's now Tuesday, but somehow it feels like a double Monday and a weird week.

Review of Lychee Kiss

I found out about Lychee Kiss from Organized Jen.  I even used the coupon code and got a discount too. :)  I ordered on 8/27/13 and received on 8/31/13.  Not too bad for a made to order item from Hawaii!

Sunday, September 1, 2013

Hello Sunday

Weekend really fly by so fast.  Gigi has no class yesterday and we went to Salty's on Alki for brunch.  Salty's is a great restaurant.  I may have been there only a handful of times and apparently their brunch is famous.  We got there a little bit early and it was already packed with people.  There was a little waiting area with some snacks and drinks for guests while they are waiting.  The decor is very cute.  The food was excellent.  I didn't eat too much, since I was having a bit tummy trouble in the morning.  But I tried all the food I want, so that was what's important.  LOL.  And their service was superb as well.  I enjoyed it a lot.  But I don't think it's the kind of meal that I want to do often.  To me, it's more like a treat. :)

Nail of the day--The Youth

3rd post for today!

I had this on I think on Monday (??) when my hands were not as bad (the steroid did helped, but now I am still not 100% well... I still have some "things" on my hand, but definitely not as bad as it was before using the steroid.).  The color is Enchanted Polish The Youth.  A lovely holo.  I love EP, but the shop is crazy.  What do I mean by that?  On their last restock/release, I got there on time, but everything is sold or on hold already!  What the heck?  The Youth and 2 more I got from the release before the last restock/release.  Those are the only ones that are available, so I just grabbed whatever I could.  Don't get me wrong, they are pretty, but I'd like to be able to look a little and maybe get some other colors?!  Sheesh.  Bottom line is I don't have any expectation for the next restock/release.
{the search}

Happy Friday

Thank God It is Friday.  And a long weekend.  I hope to have a relaxing weekend.

August Favorite

I don't do favorites post that often.  Mostly because I don't try many different new products, so the favorites can be repetitive.  I think my school of thought is "when you have found something good, why try something new?"  But then if you don't try something new, how will you know when and if there is something better.  Arg!  Right?  I don't have that many favorites... but here it goes... (some are oldies, but goodies)

I have bought a gratitude journal, but haven't use it that much.  I suck.  I am so out of alignment or whatever you call it.  I need more me time, quiet time, god time and Gigi time!

When will stupidity stop?

My friend posted this on her FB.  So they can use this against any borrowers?  It's just similar to employers wanting their potential employees for their FB password?  How is that NOT invading privacy?  And there are more than one way for a person to bad mouth a company etc.  So does that mean a potential employee will have to subject to a request of giving up all their email, social platform passwords? How about a search of the home, so they can read your diary and listen to your conversation to friends and family... and that would also mean to install recording devices?  Oh and a mind reading device.  HOW STUPID CAN PEOPLE BE?  There is no end to stupidity.

Gigi looooooooooves grandpa

So this is no big secret in our house that Gigi loves her grandpa and grandpa is smitten with this little long granddog.  So last night, around my bed time (which is sadly quite early) I went to fetch Gigi... because she sleeps in my room (in her crate). She was hanging out with gp.  He was playing with his phone and Gigi was sitting next to him.  I asked her if she was ready for bed... then she looked at gp.  I KNEW she was asking him (or jedi-mind him to tell me that she is not going to bed) to let her stay or even sleep in his room.  But she was a good girl and came with me when I asked her... though she was sitting (rather than burrow and zzz in her blankie in her crate) and wanting out!  I mean eventually she went to sleep, but I feel bad.

Monday, August 26, 2013

I love to stay organized and be good at organization.  But most of the time I end up in an "organized chaos".  But I do try.  I love getting little pouches to help me.  And that I am also a "bag lady".  LOL

Rally 20130813

It was rally last night.  It was a beautiful evening.  Not too hot and a good breeze outdoor.  We did a course.  Gigi was sort of distracted.  Trainer was suggesting to "get into their space" to grab their attention.  We also talked about objectives of why we do rally.  For us, it's a time for me and Gigi doing something she (and we) enjoys.   We had fun. And I am glad for the reminder of it's all about having a good time together and having fun.

Privacy, jewelry and just Gigi

Click on this link and read on.  Now a days with cellphones or other gadgets that comes with camera... that makes sharing your pics so easy... but who knew a simple photo can "share" more than just an image?  I like sharing pics and such... but I don't like to be too "share-y".  So read the article and feel free to change your setting.  For iPhone 4S, it is Settings > Privacy > Location Services. I keep mine on and on apps that I know that need to use GPS.  Of course it's up to you how much to share. :)

Agility 20130810

I haven't post much agility stuff lately.  We still enjoy our weekly class.  Gigi does not run as fast as she used to, but as long as she enjoys it... we will continue to do it.  Since we are not competing, it's ok.  If she was, she would be in the Open category.

My Gigi cutie

She is doing great since we switched back to Honest Kitchen.  It really is a great food.  It's a bit more work.  But I like its ingredients and all that.  Whatever keep my Gigi healthy and happy is a keeper.  She has been barking at me for not fixing her meals fast enough too.  Haha.  I have also included a new little ritual in our lives.  I give her 2 treat toys in her crate when I am to leave the house.  We now added a little prayer time too.  She would go in her crate and lay down and I will put her toys in the crate.  And I lay my hand on her little paw and we did a little prayer thanking Jesus for looking after her and keeping her safe and healthy and happy and giving me wisdom to look after her. :)  It's sweet.

Ninja Polish Glamorous and an initial review of Glossy Glam top coat

Peel off base coat is my friend when my skin is horrible.  I can still wear and take off polish with way less contact with acetone.  For that I am thankful.  Ok, so I wore my new Glamorous from Ninja Polish.  It's a deep blue holographic amazing polish which you almost only need 1 coat. :)

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

New food for Gigi

So we went to All The Best pet care on Saturday after agility to buy some senior food for Gigi.  The doctor did suggest maybe switching to a senior formula... but I am more into getting Gigi some good quality food.  Acana is pretty good... but why not go for better?  That's when we decided to switch her back to The Honest Kitchen.  It's dehydrated raw food, Gigi was on it for awhile, but due to laziness and the price, she was mostly on Acana.

What happened yesterday

Yesterday was a meh.  I was miserable.  I was self-pity.  I was not in a good place.  But then going to rally class and receiving a surprise card from a friend cheer me up slightly.  Yay.

Reading

I don't mean reading a book here.  I am talking about reading from (or for?) Gigi.  A few years ago someone from the doxie board was learning animal communication and I think she did this for free as practice... but anyway, here is a little reading for Miss Gigi. :)

Neon Glitter

Nail post.  I find that I can still do my nails if I use a peel off base.


Gigi update

Hello.  No nail stuff.  Well, remember this is not a nail blog? ;)  My freaking hands are still wonky.  Actually, I do have 1 nail pic.  I did do my nails on Saturday... I used a peel off base, so it was good, but it didn't last long.  I will post that in the next post, in case no one wants to read about Gigi.

Continue good news

My baby girl is still doing good.  She was eager to eat her dinner last night and her breakfast this morning.  She is so cute and I am so glad she is feeling better.

Thank you

This is my thankful post.  I like to do this irregularly.  Being thankful is such a powerful tool.

Great Gigi news

The vet called and said NO TUMOR and probably is a mild case of pancreatitis.  No med needed.  What a great relieve!  Her blood work shows a healthy little dog who had very rich food (hence he sent the X-ray to the specialist to review again).  So she has to eat light from now on.  Considering she always is on the sensitive side with her tummy.  It is the truth.  I am just so happy.  And we will be looking into senior formula for her food and I am thinking really limiting her non kibble snack.

Yipppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

A little "ranting"

I dislike how my mind will go automatically to negative things.  I know LOA, I know what I should have done.  At least I know that I have a choice.  So that's not the end of the world.  I just stop the negative feeling and steer it towards positive.  You don't have to believe in "Law of Attraction", but to just believe in you can choose to feel better, no matter what the current situation is.  You can choose the slightest positive and happy feeling there is.  Grab it and savor it and rub it all over you.  It WILL attract more positive feeling.

Nose of the day

Today's Gigi pic. :)


Gigi update

She ate her breakfast (canned food from the vet) yesterday.  I gave her maybe around 1/3 can or so.  She seems hungry and ate everything.  My mom told me she puked a little in the morning.  She was very happy and energetic when I was home and was super hungry, so she ate all her dinner and the evening was fine.

Growth

I forgot to share it.  These pics just happened to be sitting side by side. :)  How a little girl can grow. :D

Personalized dachshund jewelry

By now you must know I am a Gigi-obsessed person.  And by that extend, I love all dachshunds and dogs.  Gigi is my first dachshund.  Yes,  first dog and first dachshund.  And I don't regret it a bit.

Hint:  if you want me to buy anything... have a dachshund and if I can further personalized with Gigi's name, even better!

Gigi

This post will be sort of scattered.  I just want to document it.  And that's the purpose of this... or heck isn't that the reason of this blog?  For documentation of various things. :)

My girl

I was so happy when I came yesterday and was greeted by this face with super excitement!  Today she has no mood to eat again.  So off to the vet we go in a bit.  I love her so much.

Something my friend shared with me


After author C.S. Lewis lost his beloved wife to cancer, he wrote in A Grief Observed, "Grief and pain are the price humans have to pay for the love and total commitment we have for another person. The more we love, the more we hurt when we lose the object of our love. But if we are honest with ourselves, would we have it any other way?"

This is not just from person to person, but all your loved ones.

Good thoughts to Gigi please

I know she is not feeling very good.  I am thinking of taking her to the vet if it still bothers her (and thus me).  I want her to be trouble free and be a happy girl.  Isn't that what all mother wants?

Goodie mail

I have received 2 mail package yesterday.  One from Indigo Bananas and another one from my pal.  So nice.  I love getting mail.  Real mail.  Not bills and junk.

Hot

Hot in so many ways.  LOL.  The weather is one of them.  But I am thankful for the weather here is still considered "mild"... it's almost always way cooler in the evening and it will only last for days, not weeks nor months... which I am super thankful!

I am a dog trainer

Yes, I am.  I may not be a very good one, but I am.  And I can get away with it because I have an amazing dog.  She makes me look good and feel great.  She truly is a god sent.

Busy weekend

Weekend was busy and people are crazy and let's just leave it at that.  That's to keep negative feelings at bay or to destroy it later.

Life and everything else

Today is Saturday and it is almost 10pm (but due to technical reasons, this will be posted most likely on Sunday). I am thinking about meaning of life etc.

Happy Friday

Still wearing Cosmic Rainbow because it's so gorgeous.  And because I am weak, I bought 2 more colors last night, will share when they arrived.  They are worth the money, so go get some!


I love Doctor Who

It's always a pleaseure to watch anything DW related. :D

Happy July 4th.  I am watching Independence Day (one of my fav movie) and relax.

Cherubic halo on Haba Xueshan

Whose hands have been flaking like crazy?  Me.  I have been peeling off sheets of dried skin off my hands.  And I also get zits on my hands.  Yea.  And numerous cuts etc.  They do not look pretty at all.  However, my nails are really hard.  Signs of strong?

The Closing Time


Alicia's Creation

I was browsing Facebook and saw my friend's (Alicia) new creation and then I remember the ones she has made for me.  I couldn't find all of them on my blog, though I am sure I have posted them before, but due to my stupidity in labeling (or tagging)... I couldn't find them. So whatever. I am going to start new and repost them.

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a good weekend.

Skin stuff

I think I have said it enough time that "I have skin issues".  That' is sadly the truth.  It ranges from minor issues to serious stuff.  Currently it's cracked hands and itchy as well.  And I have tried many products over the years... always looking for things that are effective.  And here are some of my fav...  Sometimes I make my own too... all depends on my mood and effectiveness.

DIY

Hello.  The weekend was uneventful.  By now you should know that I am a boring person.  {Well, I guess it really depends on the people that are involved... with the right people mix, I can be very interesting. ;)  }  I enjoy staying at home and spend time with Gigi and read or watch DVD or playing on the computer.

Friday, June 14, 2013

TGIF

Seriously.  I am totally not doing as good as I want.  So discouraged etc.  I need my quiet time.  Today is a good Friday for me.  I received a bunch of supply, so I can make my own cuticle oil.  Yay.


The Hawaiian Good Luck Sign

 I remember reading that joke long time and had to look it up again. :D

Sandals

My favorite pairs of sandals are my Birkenstock.  I have 2 pairs of sandals and both are Birky.  I love them.  They are not the "prettiest", but they are comfy and I had them for many years.  I am a sentimental person, or you can say I am a hoarder (?!) and I like to keep my things.  Anyway.  They are great shoes.  And I am not a huge "shoe person" anyway.  I am a boring dresser.  I like my tee and jeans.

Funny videos

I am laughing so hard.  LOL.  Love them.


Robin eggs

Good morning!  My hands are in pain today... they are not happy.  I have been using booda butter for the past couple days, it seems to work a little.  But I guess when your hand in really bad shape, there is no quick fix.  I do try to stay with using only natural products.

Favorite List

I haven't do a fav email for a long time.  So I feel like doing one now.  But this is not limited to polish only.  {This is afterall NOT a beauty blog.  Just a reminder.}  And this list is not inclusive at all. :)

Monday, June 10, 2013

Happy Monday

Hellooooooooooooooooooo.  Just to get it out of my chest:  I SUCK.  I am a shopaholic and I suck.  Ok,that's it.

I love Gigi

I know I have said that many times, but I am truly blessed with this gift that is call Gigi. :)

Awesome videos

Just awesome videos I have found on  YouTube. :D

Franken

I am not a huge DIY person, but I like to make my lip balms and my salves.  I made enough for myself, then I get bored of making them or just lazy.  I do like making them from time to time, but I don't super enjoy having to source them and spend all the money for the supplies... well... I do, but I don't.  Ha.  I am interested in making a few franken for myself.  I know the elements I like for my "perfect" nail polish.  But I don't want to buy a bizillion supplies etc.  (My life is full of contradiction.  LOL.)  Anyway, I did bought a small supply and made a franken last night.

Black Tie Optional

Happy Friday eve.  Almost there!

No one ever comment on my nails... good or bad.  No one notice.  Well, maybe once or twice... less than 5 times... in my face comment.  Today when I get my vanilla latte, the barista actually said something.  He asked if it was one layer.  I told him, it's the base color and then the glitter.  Ha!

Rally 20130528

Rally was fun last night.  We practiced halt with foot work.  Left about turn etc.  It was fun and challenging at the same time.  Foot work is not as easy as one would have thought.  It requires lots of coordination for your whole body.  We had a good laugh (at each other).  Gigi had fun and that's what's important.

Power of Intention

Found this lecture again.  Bless!  I have seen this lecture many many years and I believe that's what introduced me to Dr. Dyer.  Amazing man and amazing books!

TGIF

Or is it???  I have said in my previous post that I have been slacking in my quiet time :(  Quiet time is important, but for whatever reason I am slacking... and I feeling the effect. :(

Nail stuff

I think I am at the point of saturation of nail polish.  Is that a crazy thing to say?  I go in phases of my "interests".  I do enjoy my current interest in nail polish.  I am estimating I have around 300 bottles?  I have given away many bottles, but I have also bought many new ones.  LOL.  I should really purge my stash again... for my mental/physical healthy, for my wallet (hello blog sale) and for my cute office ...  I want to streamline what I want to keep, what I am willing to let go and what I want to buy.  I already know I love holographic polish, also love duo/multichromes... glitters are ok, but I hate removing them... so many kinds to think about and to go through. :D  This post is kind of pointless, but it will serve as a reminder for me to organize them!  Go me.  Baby step.

But I think for me right now is to make my nails healthy.  My cuticles are not in great shape.  I guess having skin issue does not help.  Whenever my eczema act up, my cuticles suffers too.  I don't particularly fancy long long nails, so trimmed and tidy and healthy nails is my goal.

Uses of Hydrogen Peroxide

I found this on my Facebook feed.  Always looking for effective ways to using natural products...

Green Awakening and The Youth

I have been lacking in my quiet time and I am feeling the effect. :(  And I have got all these cuts on me, because I have been scratching and now that my nails are in the square shape, they are quite sharp... I think that's why I got all the slashes.  Oh well.  Yay to healing balm.  I need to buy some raw ingredients in the near future, so I can make them again.  I have about 5 tins left... and I can always just buy the ready made ones.  But I like to make them myself sometimes.

Oi. Lawn Mower

Mowed my lawn again today in my work clothes and shoes after work.  When I have the momentum, I'd like to do it right away before it fades... and the mower cooperated... that I am grateful.

On other news, I bought a few Wicked Polish today.  I wasn't planning to, but the timing was right and I got what I was interested in.  Though I still want to go through my stash and sell some of them.

Rally and other stuff

Rally was fun last night, we arrived a bit early and watched a bit of the earlier "puppy" class.  Everyone there were friends.  We all know each other other.  Dog training can be a small world indeed. :)  Gigi saw her godmother and was so happy to see her.  Saw M and Salis and P and her new puppy.  Gigi got lots of attention and she loved it.  It is all about her, right?  And there are only me and another student for our class.  We practiced stand, side step and left about turn.  Gigi did very good (again considering we don't practice) and had lots of fun.  D mentioned Gigi is in very good shape (health-wise)

Neon nails

This manicure is inspired from someone else's manicure I saw on Instagram.  I happen to have a lot of polish she already has... not everything... but I learn to improvise.

Super Cute

This is Hit Super Cute.  It reminds me of Across the Universe from Enchanted Polish.  I added an extra layer of holo top coat. :)

Nail sticker decals

I finished my 20 books I have set for myself with goodreads.  Yay.  I am so proud to have reading as my hobby.  I have love reading since I was a kid.  I love mystery, (some) thriller, fantasy (HP etc) and (some) romance etc.  I am willing to try anything.  And with Kindle, it makes getting books so much easier.  Amazon has lots of free Kindle books too, so there is always something to read.  I also buy other books on top of the free ones.  I seriously love my Kindle. :D  Nerd much?  Anyway, I am not going to stop reading.  If you have a smart phone, you can still download the Kindle app and enjoy all the books.  Though I wish I can buy Chinese books on Kindle.  On top of being able to get free books on my Kindle, I also like not having to store the paper book and that I can carry tons of book in 1 device.  Also I like no one need to know what I am reading (though one person actually asked what I was reading long time ago.).  Kindle is a good investment IMO.
