Skincare stuff

I'm so glad this week is moving by fast! I'll be going to NYC on Saturday then to DC! I went to NYC 4 years ago but I've never been to DC before. Well I'm starting to pack already just to make sure I don't forget anything important. I hate it when that happens!

I just wanted to blog before leaving... I know I won't have time on the trip. I've been drinking a lot of milk lately. I never liked the taste of milk before but I'm starting to have a thirst for milk lol! My face has actually gotten a lot smoother since starting! Some people have actually broken out from drinking milk so it may be bad for your skin in that way! I guess I'm one of those people who didn't get acne from milk. Here is my fave kind of milk! I would get 2% but my dad likes 1% so whatever lol. I love the cute cow on it too!

I've been using a skincare line called Boscia for 3 years now and I'm not planning on trying anything new anytime soon. It's a line from the Japanese brand Fancl. It's really hard to get actual Fancl stuff in stores in the U.S. so I tried Boscia. Everything is preservative-free and their products contain botanicals. It works well with my dry skin. I heard they are also good for those with combination skin. I love their cleanser, Soothing Cleansing Cream because you apply it like a lotion then wash it off with water. My skin doesn't feel like the moisture on my face got stripped away. Their Makeup Breakup makeup remover is awesome too! You use it the same way as the cleanser! Those two products are my fave from the line. I highly recommend the moisturizers too. Make sure to use it up within 6 months after the open date. It's not hard to do since the bottles don't come with that much product. I don't think I could go anywhere without the products in the picture except the eye cream. I would try something cheaper since I haven't noticed any changes in my undereye area while using this.

Products in the picture:
Soothing Cleansing Cream
Enliving Amino-AG Eye Treatment
Balancing Facial Tonic
Makeup-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil
Vital Daily Moisture SPF15
Recharging Night Moisture

Here's a pic of my skin at the moment. I don't have BB cream on or anything. I didn't want to use my whole makeup-less face in the pic lol. I'll probably scare some people.

Ok time to sleep! Thanks for reading!

Shu Uemura Makeup

I finally fixed my stupid comment box! lol I was wondering why I was missing that comment box but I realized that I didn't do something specific... so that's why it wouldn't show up. The only way it'll work is if I use the full page comment way instead. Kind of lame but whatever. At least all is well now!

It was Father's Day and had dinner with the entire family. It was alright... with cake and stuff. I went out with Di since she hasn't seen me for a while. We went to get a drink. We ended up going to Costco and Target though. I know... so random. At least I got my Swiffer! I don't know why I can't ever find it at Costco anymore. Are they just not carrying it anymore?

For my dad, grandpa, and uncle! Very yummy cake! Not too sweet and fresh strawberries!

I also received my Shu Uemura make up I ordered earlier last week! I love this brand so so much! I have only tried the eyelash curler, eyeshadow and the blush though. The colors are so vibrant and a little bit goes a long way. It's a bit pricey, but it will last me for a long time. I'm still not half way done with a lot of my old eyeshadows from this brand yet. Then again, I don't wear makeup to work everyday. I wish I could but my coworkers would totally think it's weird.

Each eyeshadow and blush comes in this kind of package. It's a bit flimsy but I think it looks nice and simple. There is also a reason why the packaging is like this.

There is a hole in the back and you can punch out the blush and eyeshadows, and you can make your own palette! You do have to buy the compact though. I got the palette for free since there is a promotion going on. Check it out at! It costs around $15 so it's a good deal. Here are the colors that I picked.

It's a dark green eyeshadow, a pink eyeshadow, and an apricot blush. This was my first time wearing this shade of blush. It actually looks cute on my skintone. I only need to dab a bit of it on.

The limited edition compact

Ok time to try to sleep. Yea another week is about to start! I can't wait until this week ends.

It's finally Friday!! I always look forward to the weekend because I can rest! I just wanted to write about a restaurant in San Francisco I went to last weekend called ChouChou. It's a restaurant that serves affordable French food. I say affordable because it's possible to have a good full dinner for $30! The owner is so nice and the staff are very sweet also. I loved the atmosphere since they bring most of the couples upstairs with a more intimate feel. You can see everyone downstairs since it's basically like a balcony up there. Well on to the food... everything was so delicious and flavorful! I will come back and try other items on their menu. Here are some pics of the place and the food.

The inside was very blue too hehe.

escargot! they don't give it to you in the shell. the thing in the middle is actually a bone lol. They put some of the escargot in there. Very tasty but it could get salty!

Warm Goat Cheese Tart! This was SOOO good!

Kobe steak! So delicious! Ignore my bf's hands please hehe.

Steamed mussels! It came with fries and the sauce is like a chowder! I drank most of it haha. So good but the fries were soggy.

Mandarin orange chocolate tart. Good and not too sweet. Too bad they ran out of the fruit tarts because we really wanted to try that!

I'm actually really hungry right now. Looking at food makes me feel this way lol!

Crappy day!

I wanted to do a full post today but I just don't feel like it. Today was just a bad day for me. It wasn't any regular Monday either.

Seeing this sorbet that I had from Vitrine restaurant is helping me feel better. I wish I can eat it right now!

NBA finals and doggies!

Hi there!

It's been a busy week but it went by so fast! I really don't have much to blog about but I just wanted to write an entry. I went to Safeway before work to buy some Pringels and Kettle chips since I've been craving chips everday! I really should stop it because it's just going to give me pimples. Anyways, my coworkers and I are doing a NBA finals pool to bet on who would win in which game and we each put in $5. Now who did I pick? I picked the Orlando magic and they would win it the 7th game. Today was the first game but it was really tough for me to listen to the game on the radio because Orlando lost soooo badly! It was just a horrible start. Oh well, maybe they'll do better later HAH!

I really want a dog at the moment but I'm still living at home with my parents so it's probably not going to happen unless I move out! At least I'm surrounded by cute doggies at work hehe. This cute puppy posted below is Brady and he's a dog at work! He's a little shaggier now though since his hair grew out! He knows he's cute and he loves belly rubs!

I also want to post a pic of a dog I saw at the airport in LA. He's the first dog I've seen fly on the plane. He's such a good boy too... he didn't bark and just slept for the most part. His owner said that he's already 9 years old. I wanted to sit next to him on the plane but this other girl took the seat before I could! grrz~!

These pics are crappy because I took them with my cell. Ok that was all I wanted to blog about for today.
