Discovered this morning that our water heater was off again.  Second time this month.  It likes to do stunts like this from time to time and it is quite new too.  Unfortunately I didn't take a shower or wash my hair this morning.  Grrr... I tried, but it is just too cold.  I think it was off during the middle of the night.  And of course I am the only one who has to fix it.  Just like I am the only one who has to take the garbage and recycle out, vacuum the house and clean everything freaking thing and not to mention has to park outside.

But I have Gigi.  The best thing in the house.  So I win.  And she loves me too.  So, double win.

More Gigi stickers

I am having a headache right now.  Sort of at the base on the left side.  Gah.

This weekend

I am glad Halloween is over.  I am not a big fan of it.  And Gigi does not like it when someone ring the door bell nor knock on the door.

What is new

Just want to update how my skin is doing.

Tuesday, October 20, 2015


I have been needing encouragement and positivity lately.  This song is so true.   Touches me so much.  Thank you, Jesus.

This makes no sense in human mind. We are nothing, we are sin.  But we are lifted and rescued by the high and glorious King who humbled and lowered Himself and died for us.  How can I be bothered by the trivial I am facing.  With Him, nothing is impossible.  He will never abandon me.

Gigi birthday week

Little Gigi's birthday week was great.

Thursday, October 15, 2015

Happy Birthday Gigi

Gigi is turning 12 on Thursday.  Love the girl so much.  She is such a blessing to me.

Pink Panda

So I think I have some sort of full blown allergy?  Sometime last week my eyes started to itch and it didn't ease off, so I finally go to the Health Center to have them looked at.  Made the appointment with my favorite ARNP.  I haven't use anything that is out of the ordinary... or least none I can think of.  My skin is already sensitive as is (thanks to Eczema) and I was told allergy (and asthma) is a close relative with eczema.  It sort of make sense to me.  But no matter, I am getting some Zyrtec and some medicated eye drop.  My eyes are pink from all the scrubbing, so I am calling myself Pink Panda.

Flash mob

Even though I have been disappointed about the politics and others things that is happening to HK since it has been returned to China's administration, but this makes me proud to be a Hong Kong native.

Just a few old Cantonese movies that are fun to watch.  They were my favorite and I rediscovered them via YouTube!

Planning stuff again and other things too

Yes, I am still doing it. :D  It has been 3 months and I am liking it.  It reaaaaaaaaaaaaally reignite my love for stickers.  How I wish I still had those laser stickers!  Where are they, really?

Monday, September 21, 2015


During one of my quiet time last week, I have discovered this song and it has now became my favorite.  Love this song so much!!!

Sunday, September 20, 2015

This weekend

I did more planning this weekend.  Not for next week, but the week after that.  Next week's was done, but it was not that great.

Friday, September 18, 2015

Weekly spread

I just felt like sharing my spread from this week.  I still do not have a set style yet.  But I am still having fun.  And at least I know I prefer removable/repositionable stickers.  Matte for writing.  Glossy, ok.  I like using my Pilot G-2 black 0.38.

Yay, Friday.  Will be having my brows waxed at the Anastasia Brow Studio tomorrow!  Excited.

Making stickers

Right now I can only make round stickers (mostly means just slapping image on a round sticker.  meh.) for my planner.  But I am also starting to make full box stickers.  I do want to have a Silhouette to cut my stickers the way I want it to, but with boxes, you don't necessarily need it.

Friday, August 21, 2015


So glad it is Friday.  It is a good day.

Hump Day

I have been on a planner kick (and sticker kick), so I have been ordering like I just hit the jackpot.  The review is here.  I will keep updating that post.  It seems easier to keep everything in one post.

Monday, July 27, 2015


This weekend is nice... sort of.

Planner stuff

I have decided to use this post to do some reviews sort of stuff and some planner related information.  Why not?  Happy Friday.

Wednesday, July 22, 2015


Happy Wednesday.  Gigi is doing great.  She is quite frosty lately, but she is still energetic and cute as always.  And I love her so much.

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

only tuesday

Yea, it is only Tuesday.

Monday, July 20, 2015


The weekend is over and I am kind of glad.

Just random things I can think of...

Not much new

My no buy is not working well at all.  I shall restart that tomorrow.  I suck.  Do not buy anything!

Weekend come back

I am sad that the weekend is almost over.  The weather is finally cooler, so that was very nice.

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

The sky has open up for me

A bit exaggerated?  Maybe, but I feel lighter.  As I have mentioned enough time that I have been "depressed" for some time.  Since I have not seen a doctor, that's why I am using the quotation mark.  So much on my mind and lack of positivity.  I am not totally depressed, just that I feel "negative" more than I feel "positive"... so it feels.  So today somethings seems to open up for me.

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

Be positive

Today is only Tuesday.  I have to admit that this week is going kinda slow.  And I am still blah.  Dang, I have been feeling that for way too long and it is not cool.  And I read this and it speaks to me.  I can choose my thoughts, which will affect my feeling and thus the outcome.  I should choose positive thoughts, I should choose God, because those makes me happy and makes me feel good.  So I am chewing on this.

Monday, July 6, 2015

This weekend

My mood swing was crazy.  I seriously think I have some sort of depression.  I am sorry for those who are around me.  But I am determined to be better.  So that.

Hump Day

A friend just lost her mini dachshund to HGE.  It is so sad.  Gigi had it in 2011 and it is a scary thing.  I have blogged about it here.  I am just grateful that my Gigi is still here.

Tuesday, June 30, 2015


It has been hot here.  I know it is nothing when compared to other cities (perspective), but it is hot for us.  And we have no AC.  Joy.

More on bandanas

So I digged out all of Gigi's bandanas the day after we received her new one.  She got quite a large collection.  A lot of them she received from the groomer and I bought her a bunch and some she got as gifts from other places.

Monday, June 22, 2015


Ordered Gigi a bandana from Dachshund Delights and it arrived over the weekend and it is so cute.  She has a collection of those, but does not wear them often.

Sunday, June 21, 2015

this and that

Yo yo yo.  It is the weekend and I am happy about it.

I was able to go to bed around 9 last night.  Yay.

My weekend started early on Friday, because I took it off.

Wednesday, June 10, 2015


5 weeks ago I got POND’s voxbox via Influenster to review.  2 days after I got my package, my eczema hit me and I have to stop my test then.

The package included Clarant B3 and Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream. I do not have serious problem with black spots (some freckles) and minimal wrinkle.

After I used the product I do not notice any significant difference, but my face did not hate it.  That is always a plus.  I will continue to use them and see if there will be more improvement with longer use.

I encourage you to try them out if you are concern with wrinkles and dark spots.

My original post HERE.


I have received the product(s) complimentary from Influenster.

Recent Favorites--June 2015 version

I feel like to sharing my current favorites.  This will only have new stuff that I haven't shared before.  You can find my old favorites HERE.  Because I don't want to be repetitive and I still love them, but it gets boring to say the same thing over and over again.


Yesterday was hot.  I turned on AC and all that in the car, but it was not cool enough or I was just dehydrated.  I actually felt sick when I got home.  Gigi greeted me by yawning REALLY loud, that's what she does when she wants you to know she is there. :)

Tuesday, June 9, 2015


It has been so hot this past couple days.  Gah.  You know it's hot when Gigi is drinking more water and she lay flat on the floor. :)  She is so cute though.  And also fortunately it eventually gets cooler in the evening and the outside is cooler than inside the house.


Went to a new dermatologist doctor today.  I was going to, but finally I was like why not.  Plus I have a good amount of HSA money.  I arrived 15 minutes as suggested and have no problem finding the place (thank God).

Sunday, June 7, 2015


Woke up at 1am with a tummy ache last night.  :(  So I  will go easy today.  Last night we went to have family dinner, it was sort of fun.  Saw my nephew and he was actually ok.  I am not good with babies. :P

Friday, June 5, 2015

It is Friday

This post may contain lots of whining and such.  Just a warning.  I am not sure how this will go.

Reflection from an IG post

I am on the edge of exploding.  Almost.  I figured I am a super sensitive person (emotionally and my skin too. Ha!) that sometimes have a tough time handling changes. I like changes, but sometimes (depends on the matter) it takes a bit longer for me to get used to it.  And I am also working on my Me time or Quiet time (haven't find the perfect term for it).  I am doing a bit more, but not enough IMO.  So I am evaluating that.

Monday, June 1, 2015

Another weekend come and gone

I am seriously lacking inspiration and ideas on my post titles. ;)  I suck.  If I want to keep this journal organized and easy to read (for me at least), I need a good system for the title and labels.  But...........

Bit of this and that

I got a free fitbit flex at our employee benefit fair.  I am so happy and I finally set it up yesterday and felt so cool wearing the band.  LOL.  I do believe it can be a valuable tool.  I am thankful.

Monday, May 18, 2015

Lovely weekend

The weekend was not bad at all.  I am thankful for that.  My eczema is still bad.  I am trying something new that I got from Whole Food yesterday, I will post more when I experience it a bit more.  But so far, it seems to be working ok.

Friday, May 15, 2015

Hello weekend

TGIF!  My hands are in great pain today.  Lots of cut and dryness etc.  No surprise though.  Yay for Dyshidrotic Eczema (self diagnosis, but I know it is true). :/

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Selfie from this morning

Not wearing makeup today, because my face is still a little sensitive.  I had a brow wax yesterday (yay for taking care of myself) and something was not agreeing with my face and I got itchy and all. Bah.


Not a new topic.  So sad.  This time is my hands.  Thankfully my body has been good, I give thanks to my products (see my favorites).

I am all for anything and everything that makes me happy and go towards the positivity.  This is my pick today. :D

This weekend 20150509-20150510

It was productive... sort of.  I missed my neighbor on Saturday.  He came and mow the lawn of his rental and I hope to catch him and have him do mine too (for a fee, of course), but I want to take Gigi to have her nails trimmed and left around 10 and when I came back, of course he came and gone.  Damn.  Gigi did have her nails trimmed, her bum squeezed and I also bought her food (10 lbs of Force from Honest Kitchen with a $20 off coupon).

Skin update

This is another skin update.


The weekend was fine.  Nothing too special.  I did went to the mall yesterday and bought a new purse and a new pair of sunglasses from H&M.  I do not like H&M, but their non clothes stuff is not bad.  Ha.

Saturday, May 2, 2015

Bunch of photos

Gigi had her ECG on Friday and it went well.  Dropped her off around 2 and picked her up around 6:30.  Doc said her little heart is about the same as last year, so no med.  And that's good news.  When my girlie is healthy, I am happy.  And now I am brooooooooooke.  And I spent $60 at Central Market.  What?  I got a lot of cool  grocery.  Bought $17 worth of grapes.  Yikes.  Lots of Asian stuff.

Still more Gigi update

Love the girlie so much.



I have heard of Tapping from a friend long time ago, but never really look deep into it... so I shall relook into it.

This is from Louise Hay's newsletter, which you can sign up.

I am feeling depressed again.  I always have intention to be on the positive side, but there are times it will not work.  Plus it's a natural tendency for human to default on negativity.  So I am actively going for positive! :D

Kat Von D liquid lipstick

I received my Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita.  I have compared it with a few other lippies I have.

More update again

Gigi has been sleeping funny.  She would wake up in the middle of the night and would not go back under the blanket, she would then slept next to my shoulder or lower but on top of the blanket, just not like her.  Eventually she would go back under the blanket.  Other than that she is totally fine.

Lippie swatch

Just trying to see what I have in my collection.

Gigi update again and Rodeo Drive

The Gi is definitely doing better, her sleep is still wonky.  But her appetite is back and she keep all her food in.  My girl is cute and I am so glad she is slowly back in being her cute adorable self.

Monday, April 20, 2015

Gigi update

She was starting to do better on Sunday.  I fed her her normal breakfast:  1/4 cup of Force from Honest Kitchen and I secretly added her pain med and her vitamins in her meal.  But she didn't finish her food.  That never happens normally.  I KNOW now that she is a bit more mature, I need to give her more time to be back to her normal self. 

We just lounge around the house mostly.  She did went with me to Whole Food to get some food.  When we were home I gave her a mini blueberry parfait (well, just plain yoghurt and blueberries)... but I think I gave her a bit too much, because she puked some of it out and I sat on it.  Yes, I did.  Barf.  So I learned another lesson again.  So last night and this morning, I only gave her a portion of her normal amount.

She definitely seems more perky this morning.  Though she woke up many times last night.

But overall, she is healing very well.  I am happy with her progress.

This post has no photo.  Shocking, I know.  But I didn't take any pics last night, nor this morning.  Though she looks very very cute.

Weird Gigi

Last night (or I should say this morning), Gigi woke up and decided to not go back under the blanket and slept on top of it and next to my head.  This is not common for her and she seems to be ok, so I am not sure what to think.  Her eating and elimination is normal.

This weekend - 4/11

Arg.  Today and this morning I woke up feeling dizzy.  It only happened in bed though.  Still.  WTF?!

Friday, April 10, 2015


I am such a sentimental wuss.  As much as I love new stuff, old stuff makes me warm and fuzzy.  I still have my little monkey when I was a kid, she is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay older than Gigi and probably older than some of my friends and coworker!!!

Hellooooo Friday

Who is excited that it's Friday?  We are.

Gratitude journal

Buyer Beware-Beauty MP

This website sells foundation pumps for foundations that does not come with a pump.  I ordered one on 1/24/15, then I finally received it on 2/9/15.  But the pump did not fit well, can't screw it on the bottle correct.  So I contacted them via reply on the receipt and also on their webpage and an email I found on the website.

Happy weekend

Can't help to notice the weekend goes by way too fast.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Berry

I have been on a on and off affair with the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment.  I was first introduced to them via Sephora's birthday gift.  As an "insider" (you can join for free), you get a birthday gift every year from them (yay!) and a couple years ago, I got a little set of the lip treatment, a clear one and the Sugar Rosé Tinted one.  I remember trying to pull the cap off and it won't budge.  LOL.

This is Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick.  This shade (Liar) is lovely.  It is sheer pinky brown nude.  Very YLBB.  I love it.  The next shade for me will be Rapture. :)  Even though it is sheer, the color is still visible.


Over the weekend I organized part of the dachshund jewelry I have.  Since I have Gigi, I have accumulated a little collection of them. :)  Most of them are silver, some are silver-plated.

Gigi is a blessing

I have been feeling kind of crappy (nooooooooooooooooo!)  lately, partly due to this stupid cold.  Grr...  So pushing aside all negativity.  I still have (among many other blessings) the most adorable, loving, amazing and cute Gigi.  She has the bestest cute face and the most amazing personality.

Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-In-Oil Review

It is no secret that I love lippies.  Be it lip balms, lip sticks, tinted balm etc.  I enjoy them all.  I do think I prefer lip balms the most.  Because they keep my dry lips moisturized and most of them are affordable.

Tips in dealing with a cold

I made it to work today.  Breathing is still hard especially when the med starts to wear off... and I need to buy more today.

I saw a cute graphic from the "Happiness is..." IG and I made this. :)

Wednesday, February 25, 2015


I got the cold.  Gahhhh.

The thing that makes me madder was that I started taking extra vitamin since I knew I was sitting next to my aunt who had the flu.  I started feeling something funny on my throat on the Sunday after my birthday.  Monday I was having the cough during the day, then starting at night I got the stuffy nose too.  Gah.  I am so annoyed.  Today I am feeling better.  Sigh.

Makup Of The Day

I used my newly purchased makeup from last week.  I have to say I am pleasantly surprised with the quality.  I haven't wear any makeup for awhile now due to sensitivity skin issue.  And as much as I do not "love" wearing makeup, I do want to look nice from time to time!

Happy Chinese New Year

Today is the Year of the Ram (or goat or sheep... IDK).  This is Gigi's year!  She was born in the year of the sheep (sheep does sound "softer".  ha.).  Whenever it's special occasion, Gigi dresses up for it. :)  So I took her Chinese dress out of her "closet" and she reluctantly wore this.  Ha.

Cellphone company ARG

Last time when I upgraded to my phone, I did it at Apple Store, and I don't remember it giving me a variety of phone plans, so I just picked one.  And of course I over paid.  So today I changed the plan to a cheaper one and one that suits my need better. 
"Fun fact":  changing plan (with Verizon) does not affect your contract term.
And if you want to upgrade your phone before the contract ends, you have to buy out the contract first.  So annoying.  So your phone pretty much sticks with your contract. 
So I guess I will be waiting for iPhone 7G! ;)

The long weekend has ended.  It is too short.  Gigi has not been sleeping too well, so I didn't sleep well. :/

A few more influenster reviews

Hello weekend.  I hope you have a great one.  It is sunny and warm where we are.  Just the way we like it.  The Gi and I like warm winters:  50 degrees, rain ok. ;)

I have received my box from Influenster yesterday.  It's a box full of goodies and I am kind of giddy about it. :D

Gigi and lippies

Today is the middle of the week.  Not much going on.  Trying to engage more with my Gigi Sushi.  She is my favorite girl.

This weekend

The weekend is definitely too short.  Luckily I was able to grab a nap today.  Yesterday I went out and had dinner with a friend.  It was our Christmas/birthday celebration and we exchanged gift.  LOL.

Just a few positivity

Just a little positive graphics I enjoy. :)

Eczema update

I thought it would be time to do a little update on my skin.

Death Note

Death Note is a Japanese Comic with a very very weird story line.  I finished the entire series back then.  And I found the anime movie the other day.  So I am sharing here.

New week again

Weekend was too short.  Didn't sleep well.  Because a certain very long nose girl keep waking up at night.  Sigh.

Time goes on.  Life is good.  All is well.

Quite a bit of update

I haven't have as much time as I have hoped to update this blog.  Not a whole lot has happened, but I still like to keep track of what's going on in my life.

Crazy Rumors

We all know how words travel fast and furious and can always lead to crazy rumors???

Money well spent -- Hurraw Lip Balm

Hurraw has been bumped to one of my top lippies lately. I really enjoy them.  The texture is just right and they have a lot of different selection to choose from.  Though I would like a "plain" one, with no flavors at all.

Another bright and sunny day

Where to start?

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

New week

Some jerk got a hold of my credit card number and tried to use it (3 times!).  Thankfully my credit union called me and verify with me.  Thankful for that.

Thursday, January 15, 2015


Today is throwback Thursday so I am sharing some random oldie but goodies.

The Power of Intention

This year I purchased The Power of Intention 2015 Calendar App for my phone.  I heard about this and Law of Attraction years ago, I believe it was shortly after I heard about The Secret and somehow I heard about Dr. Wayne Dyer and then "somehow" I found the PBS show of his lecture shortly after.  Coincidence?  I think not. :)  One of my goals this year is to revive spiritually.  :)  And on 1/12/15's calendar, it talks about the faces of intention and urged me to look it up again.  I have included the calendar page, the text from the book and the lecture.  Enjoy!!!

Remove DRM from your Kindle

Found out about this today.  This should be helpful.

Tuesday, January 13, 2015


I have been watching lots of vlogs via YouTube, I enjoyed them.  I will do the similar stuff, but via blog. ;)

Monday, January 12, 2015


I am sad to say that I do not like the new EpicallyEpicSoap lip balms any more.  It used to be buttery, and less slick, but now it is way more slippery than my preference.  The most noticable difference is the lack of pistachio butter, and I think it was substituted by olive butter.  I think she also replaces jojoba and sweet almond oil with olive oil and added olive squalane.  I don't mind substitution of ingredients, but I do mind when the texture is not the same.  Texture is important to me in lippies.  I don't like slick lippies.  It is sad, but good thing is I got a bunch of back ups of her old lippies.  :D  Plus, I really have enough lippies to last me a long time anyway.

However, I do really enjoy Orange Thyme.  I remember it used to be more slick, but these new ones I bought are quite nice, actually a tiny bit too waxy (just a tiny tad).  I need to try the other one to make sure the texture is consistent.  And I can buy more. :D  I do love a good indie lippie.

There is also another lippie I bought from Whole Food, I already forgot the name/brand. I don't like the texture of that one, so it is sitting somewhere in my room.

I also have a bunch of other lippies (color or clear) that are waiting for me to try.  So we shall see. :)

Today 20150112

Sleep was horrible last night.  Went to bed early, but woke up multiple times and at one point my right ear is "hearing" a "weird sound".  Sounds like feed back.  I don't know what it was.  That was not good.  Gigi was up many times too.  And I am feeling "funny" now.  I am also itchy.  :(

How to Remove UniSales Pop-Up Ads

I downloaded something on my computer today and since then I got a bunch of crazy going on on my computer and then I noticed at the corner it says it's coming from UniSales... so I did a bit of google and found this.  And it seems to be helping.

Christmas gifts ramblings and other stuff

Is it ever too late to talk about it?  Don't know.  Don't care.

Life 20150106

My face is itching today.  Actually when I washed my face this morning, it stings a little, who knows what now?  I did wear makeup yesterday.  Just primer, powder, CC cream, some bronzer and that's it.  Arg.  So, no makeup today.  No biggie.  I am ok with it.  I also finally put all the old makeup (lots are still brand new) into a garbage bag.  I give them 2-3 years.  Don't want to risk it, especially with my angry skin.  Plus they really just sits there.

Merry Christmas

Last night we were invited to one of my uncle's house.  We usually "do Christmas" on the eve with the family.  Gigi was invited too.  This uncle likes Gigi and is her unofficial Godfather. :)

iMovie Videos

I don't have a MAC and I am not a YouTube Guru or anything... so I never have iMovie... until I got my iPhone 5S.  Not sure how close it's to the phone version and the desk/lap top version.  But I was able to "remake" 3 videos.  Who knew agility in a speedy mode is so much fun.  Ha.

Money Well Spent -- Rocky Mountain Body Butter

I think Rocky Mountain Soap's unscented body butter should be formally be included in my "money well spent" list.  I found out about this Canadian company about a year ago via Instagram and I bought their eczema "kit" (which includes the soap and the body butter).  I used both products and I thought they were ok, but nothing too amazing.

Selfie with Gigi

Photo with the cutie.  What an honor and privilege to be owned by this girlie.  

Sunday, December 14, 2014

Christmas photo

The last time Gigi had an official Christmas picture was like 8+ years ago (more like 10).  So when I found out there is an opportunity this Sunday, I took it. :)

Thursday, December 11, 2014

What is happening

I had a bunch of ideas of topics I want to write, but since I didn't write them down, now I don't remember much.  DUH.  SMH.

Thursday, December 4, 2014


I never got this specific diagnosis (I was told I have eczema), but I looked it up.  I thought I have shared this before, but I believe my hands has dyshidrotic eczema.

Never a dull day

Gigi is my pride and joy.  You should know that by now. ;)  Her favorite hobby is eat, agility and hanging out with her mama. ;)

Winter reminder

Inspired by MetaDerm's recent post on Instagram, I want to write a post to refresh my memory on what to do with my skin during winter time.  This is only my personal experience and is not medical advice. 

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Post Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving come and gone.  I have been pretty good in jotting down my thanksgiving items.  We also had a good time with family.  Though Gigi didn't get to go.  Otherwise Gigi could meet her little cousin. ;)

Almost Thanksgiving

It is almost Thanksgiving!

Week of 20141117

Felt like I haven't blog in a few days?!

Monday, November 17, 2014

Hello new week

More random bullet points again, because that's effective.

Thursday, November 13, 2014


  • Work has been crazy.  We are short 1 person and there are so many things to work on.
  • Skin has been very dry, so that was painful.
  • My nose is sniffy today and I want to stay healthy.  So I am going to drink some EmergenC.
  • I really enjoy How To Train Your Dragon 2 and Maleficent.
  • It is getting cold and Gigi has to wear her thicker jacket.  I still think she could gain a bit more weight.  I am going to up her food a little bit. :)
  • I think I enjoy Bite Beauty Lip Mask.  It is thick, but tolerable.
  • I really enjoy Revlon Lip Butter Sugar Plum.  Berry lippies are one of my fav colors.
  • Whose Line Is It Anyway is still one of my favorite show.
  • Gracepoint is a good TV show.
  • I still prefer iPhone over Android.
  • That being said, I still prefer my iPad over my Galaxy Tab 4.
  • Happy Birthday, Takuya.  I am so glad I fell in love with you 15+ years ago.
  • It is good to feel better.  Feeling hungry is good.
  • I am still doing the "gratitude" journal on my Bullet Journal, at least for this month.
  • Had fun playing fetch with Gigi, even though it only lasted for a few minutes.

Monday, November 10, 2014

This weekend

It's Monday already.  The weekend went by so fast.  We didn't sleep too well.  Gigi keep waking up in the middle of the night.

Friday, November 7, 2014

Various thoughts on many things

First off, I want to thanks Liz at Metaderm for her amazing customer service and friendship.  She has been so helpful in so many things and I really appreciate her.

Thursday, November 6, 2014

Sephora VIB

Today is the first day of Sephora VIB and I guess everyone wants to take advantage of it that it crashed the site many times.  LOL.  It took me awhile to get there.  I got a new Beauty Blender and a tube of Bite Beauty lip mask.  Annnnnnnnnnnd now I am a VIB Rouge.  LOL.

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Oregon Trip

We had our first family trip in a very long time.  Gigi got to go too.  It turned out to be fun and interesting.

Monday, October 27, 2014

New week

Not feeling too well today.  Maybe it's time to see the doctor again.  I am really annoyed with all these crap.

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Daily staple

So this is also kind of a favorite post.  But since I don't switch up products much, it's no point of doing it every month with the same things.  Ha..

Ways to use MetaDerm Eczema Spray and cream

I want to use this post to put together ways I use my eczema spray and cream.

  • Use it after morning shower from head to toe.  Sometimes I use it on my scalp too.
  • Use it as a toner after washing my face.
  • Use it with paper face mask for face.
  • Spray it on wherever when I feel itchy.

  • Use it ASAP after shower, after spray from face to toe.
  • Mix it with my CC cream as a tinted moisturizer.
  • Use it throughout the day after washing my hands.

I buy my cream in the biggest tub and then transfer it in smaller bottle, so I can have it with me wherever.

Life post

Life is going on.  It is fun and interesting.

Gigi update

My girl turned 11 yesterday!  Time sure flies.  She was such a tiny itty bitty baby.  Now she is all grown up and amazing and smart and funny. ;)

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Featured on MetaDerm

We got featured on MetaDerm's Instagram again. :)  It was my photo of mixing the eczema cream and my CC cream and I conveniently included Gigi in there.  Ha!

Monday, October 13, 2014


I feel so loved.  My parents will be going to dinner at my uncle's house.  And my mom made ME dinner.  I have been alone for too long, little things like this makes me feel loved and cared for and blessed.  I will go hide and cry a little.

Jesus Calling 20141009

I am really enjoying the kid's version of this book.  So much easier to understand.  Great for people whose English is not their mother tongue.  The original version is also good.

Dog training

Everyday you can find opportunity to train your pooch.  I am not professional, just sharing my experience with my 10 (soon to be 11) year old amazing Gigi.

Sleepy Gigi

Every morning Gigi wakes up sooner than me.  Her sleep last night was quite deep.  I don't even think she got up at all (which sadly happens a few times each night).  And this morning instead of waiting by the door, she actually went and sat on her bed!  My auto-worried-mom-mode kicked in, but she seems ok after that.  Whew.

Cold weather eczema skin care routine

I have been on YouTube kick for awhile now and a lot of those "guru" (dislike that term) like to do skin care/shower (oh yea... as in REALLY taking a shower ON VIDEO)/night time etc routine.  So I am doing my eczema skin care routine.  And if you are here because you saw my blog on Metaderm's Instagram post.  Hello!

Tuesday, October 7, 2014


I got more nail sticker decal from Lacquer by Lissa.  I have been buying a mixed bag for a few times already.  I like the variety I get.  It's cool.

Monday, October 6, 2014

October is here

I just had my flu shot.  I am feeling kinda blah over the weekend.  And I haven't been feeling "great" much this year (2014) anyway.  Damn.  But anyway, got my flu shot, it hurts this time.  How can one relax when the nurse tells you relax (which means the needle is coming)?!  Anyway, taking care of my body and mind is the top of my list.  And feeling positive and loving liiiiiiiiiiiife!  That's my goal.

Friday, October 3, 2014

Yay Friday

Hello.  Last night I was using my Eve Lom Morning Time Cleanser.  Last time I used it, I got a slight itch... but last night when I use it, I got more itch and today I got "rashes" and it's still itchy.  The "rash" is not as severe compared to when I got it from using the sheet mask.  I bought this cleanser from a review from someone who had a rash.  So this product GIVES me a rash instead.  Oh joy.  Good thing I only bought a small one.  Gah.  So needless to say, I am makeup free.

Thursday, October 2, 2014

Happy Friday Eve

What I said on the subject line. :)

Bible Study

Now that I am back into studying the bible, I am so glad that I have found so many resources that is amazing.  I will share some here, because I can and because I want to.


Sometimes I am not sure how many more I can take.  All happened within months and sudden (rather than long battles again sickness.  Not that it's better... but you know what I mean).

I am not "close" to any of them.  I just know them.  Robbin Williams, a colleague at work, my friend's husband and now Sophia Yin?

I am going to hide under the rock now.

Hangry Monday

This is not a happy most in general.  You are warned. 

Sunday, September 28, 2014

Productive and moody

I have been in super bad mood this weekend.  I know this is bad for my overall health, but I can't help it with so much anger.  Poor Gigi was being the scapegoat.  I am so grateful she forgave me.  Though she can get annoying and in the way.  But she is the best.

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Life is cray

Life is once again throwing a curve ball at me.

Monday, September 22, 2014

Nice weekend

We were invited to dinner by my uncle on Saturday.  We asked and Gigi was allowed to go too. :)  My uncle likes Gigi and my aunt is a bit afraid of her (!!!).  My uncle called Gigi pencil.  LOL.

Friday, September 19, 2014


Yay for Friday!

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

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.

Friday, September 12, 2014

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.

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

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.

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

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, September 8, 2014


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


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.

Friday, August 29, 2014

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.

Footprint In The Sand II

Found this one.  Not as great as the original.  But I still enjoy it.

Color Club Cloud Nine

I am sharing my manicure.


Just random thoughts...

I Am the Very Best I Can Be

A little affirmation/encouragement for everyone.

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.

Sunday, August 24, 2014

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.

Friday, August 22, 2014


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

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Gone Girl

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

Tuesday, August 19, 2014


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

Sunday, August 17, 2014

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.

Friday, August 15, 2014

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


Wednesday, August 13, 2014


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


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.


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


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).

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

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. :)

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

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.


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.

Lovely weekend

This weekend was nice and easy.

Hello Saturday.

Good morning and it's Friday!

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


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.


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.

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


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


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!!!

Thursday, July 3, 2014

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.

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.

Sunday, June 29, 2014

Have a blessed Sunday

Let today be a day full of positivity!

Thursday, June 26, 2014


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.

Good morning beautiful people.

Jewelryudesign review

I first learned about this place via groupon, I think.  I bought a necklace there with my dachshund doodle. :)  And for no apparent reason (?!) I rediscovered jewelryudesign and signed up for their newsletter and you do get coupon from time to time.

Because pictures are better than work.  Then there is I am lazy.

It is Friday and today's post is simple.

Almost Friday TGIAF


Wednesday, June 18, 2014


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.

Tuesday, June 17, 2014


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


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.


We are half way through 2014 now and I would like to take this opportunity to reflect on how I feel about it so far.

Friday, June 13, 2014


Today is the beginning of the Commencement of SPU.  What an inspired day.

Almost Friday

I am feeling ok today.  Yesterday felt better.  A lot of it has to do with my mind too.  I suck.

Happy Wednesday

It actually felt like Thursday or Friday. :/

Went to Whole Food last night to get some pre-cut watermelon, because I love using that for my juice... but they don't have any!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  They have the whole watermelon, but I only want to buy a tub or 2.  Poopie.

Tuesday, June 10, 2014


This just made my day!  HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Tuesday

I am feeling slightly better with my "cold".  Went to bed early too, but didn't sleep too well.

Today was uneventful.  Sort of.  I am not feeling very good today.  I am doing better now I have eaten and is at home resting.

Cute doxie

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


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.

Tuesday, June 3, 2014


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


Monday, June 2, 2014

Monday again

Hello Monday and friends.

Saturday, May 31, 2014

Weekend so far

Just a normal weekend... some housework and lots of relax and quiet time.  Enjoying it a lot.

Thursday, May 29, 2014


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. :)

Wednesday, May 28, 2014


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!?

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.

Dachshund necklaces

My collection of dachshund/Gigi necklaces...


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

Saturday, May 24, 2014


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.

Monday, May 19, 2014

Happy Monday

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

Sunday, May 18, 2014

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.

Saturday, May 17, 2014

Crazy Saturday

Gigi woke me up at around 8.

Friday, May 16, 2014

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.

Wednesday, May 14, 2014


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


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.

Sunday, May 11, 2014

Happy Mother's Day

Wishing all mothers, mother-figures, grandmas, aunts, cousins, sisters and friends who have guided us, nurtured us, cared for us and shaped us into who we are today.

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.

Tuesday, May 6, 2014


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.

Saturday, May 3, 2014


Got new tires for my car today.  Yay.
Bought an iPod Nano Generation 7.  Yay.  (My last one was broken)
Bought MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC20.
Bought mini ice cube tray and chopsticks.
Got the lawn mowed by the next door owner.
Did laundry.
Still feel lousy.  Will be making doctor appointment.

Friday, May 2, 2014

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


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


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

Monday, April 28, 2014

Monday again


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


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.

How Frozen Should Have Ended

So true... :D


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!!!!!!

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Lippie haul

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


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


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


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.

Saturday, March 29, 2014

What is in my iPhone

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.

Cult Nails

Use this link,and you will receive $12 Off $24 on their first purchase.

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


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


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.

Thursday, March 13, 2014

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


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


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


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


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.

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.

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. :/

Info on bleach bath

Some info I found on bleach bath.

Happy Birthday to me

Today is my 40th birthday.  It is a scary thought.  Very scary thought.

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.

It's always nicer to have positive outlook and stay positive and encouraged.  So I am sharing some awesome graphics with you.

What's up

Hi.  Telling you about my week with photos.

Eczema Skin Care: Winter Solutions

The National Eczema Association presented a workshop like 2 weeks (?) ago and now they are sharing the webinar on YouTube.

Friday, February 7, 2014


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!

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. :/

Super Bowl

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

Happy weekend!

This is just a boring status post. ;P

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.

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

Happy weekend

Just some random things over the weekend...

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.

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.

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.

Time to clean out my junk in the room.

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.

Sunday, January 12, 2014


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.

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


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


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

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Merry Christmas

Me and Gigi want to wish you a very Merry Christmas with FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, JOY, PEACE

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

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.


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

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.

iPhone tricks

So useful!

Also I just found this:  101 Household Tips for Every Room in your Home.

Another mini haul

Happy Tuesday.  I am super happy that there is no snow.  I enjoy my winter brisk and cold and dry.  The snow can be delivered to the mountain and ski resort where they can be enjoyed.

Happy Weekend

It's Monday... another new week.  I hope your weekend was nice.  Mine was.

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. :/
