I have moved!


This will be my last post on this blog. I never thought this day would come where I'd stop blogging from livejournal but it just does not satisfy my current blogging needs anymore. I started this blog way back in 2006 and it is now 2012 which means I've been blogging here for 6 years!

In these past 6 years, I have met many very wonderful and sweet people through my blog and the LJ communities and I greatly appreciate every person and friend I've made through livejournal. I feel a little sad to be leaving this blog behind as it holds many great memories for me. However, this blog will still remain to be open for my own personal use to look back on the posts I've made in the past.

But this does not mean I won't be around on livejournal anymore. I'd still use my account here to visit all the great communities that I download stuff from. I just won't be blogging on here anymore. THANK YOU to everyone who has been following me on livejournal and reading this blog. I hope you continue to follow me on my new blog too! =)

Sasa Haul & New iPhone Case

I bought some beauty products from Sasa and just received my package last week.

Strawberry yogurt mask and black pearl mask from My Beauty Diary. I've already tried the strawberry yogurt before so I'm just replacing it because I finished my current box. I'm excited to try the black pearl mask though as it is their #1 top selling mask and I've read tons of great reviews about it. I think I might actually try the mask tonight, lol.

H&M And Victoria's Secret Shopping

I'm back with more shopping and fashion post, lol. I'm doing pretty good with blogging more frequently. Let's just hope I don't jinx myself and start disappearing again.  Although I think I might be actually quite busy next week so I might not have time to blog.

Anyway, did a bit of shopping this week.

New body creams that I got from Victoria's Secret just earlier today. My brother gave me these discount cards that he got from work and it expires in 8 days and plus I needed to get some new body creams because I'm almost done all mine. Saved $10 with my brother's discount card on these. Yes, I only like the Pure Seduction and Love Spell body cream. It's actually the two best ones out of all the creams that they have at Victoria's Secret. Also been trying to put my iphone camera in use lately and testing out my photo apps. I quite like this Lemeleme app. It has great filters!

Easter & Cherry Blossom

Okay I know I said I'd getting back to blogging more but I've been slacking, lol. I think I'll just aim to like blog 1-2 times a month as oppose to how often I used to blog years ago. Honestly I just don't have the energy that I had before to blog so frequently and taking pictures and uploading them is quite a tedious job and I get too lazy to do it.

Went to see the cherry blossom today at High Park with my parents. Weather wasn't the greatest though, it was too dark and gloomy out with the rainy clouds.  This was the best picture I took throughout the day on my iPhone with instagram.

I thought I should start off the new year by writing my very first entry for the year of 2012!

Sorry that I haven't been updating as often as I used to. I really hope that I can get back to blogging as often as I do before but it's hard when life gets so busy and hectic, especially when I am HARDLY ever home now. Seriously, I'm only home to sleep and then I'm like gone for the whole day until late at night when it's time to sleep again. Sigh. 

A lot of things have happaned in the past 2 months and it's too much for me to type everything out so to make this entry short and simple, let's just say life hasn't been so great for me in the past 2 months. Lots of arguments, stress, tears, joy, devastation and a whole bunch of other mixed emotions.

I'm hoping 2012 will be a good year and things will somehow get better.

Thanksgiving Weekend At The Falls

I went to Niagara Falls yesterday with my family. It's my second time going ever since I was like 9/10 years old? I don't quite remember.

Anyhow, I mainly wanted to go this time to see the night fall with the beautiful changing colour lights. However, it was very disappointing as you could barely even see the lights (they were not bright enough) and I got sick/tired of waiting because I've been there for literally the whole day from morning to late night until 8pm. Plus it was freezing cold standing nearby the falls at night so I eventually gave up and went home. However, I did get to see a beautiful DOUBLE RAINBOW during the day which was the highlight of my day spent there.

Well Hello!

Hello my long abandoned blog!

It's so been so long since I last updated that I don't even know what it feels like to even blog. So many new changes on LJ that I still need to get used to. I got an email about a month ago or so that my paid account got a one week extension while I was away from blogging. That's pretty nice I guess considering I barely use my account as much now.

Anyway, life has just been busy which is why I haven't really updated in such a long time and mostly because there wasn't any interesting or things that I feel the need to blog about.

Lately I've been thinking of getting a new camera but a film polaroid camera! I've always wanted a polaroid camera but never got one because they are extremely expensive. I'm getting kind of sick of taking photos with digital and phone cameras. While there are always these different apps to edit photos on the iPhone and all these different lightings and functions on digital and SLR cameras, there is something unique about natural pictures taken with a film camera. To be honest, I really miss using film cameras.

I found this Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S Instant Camera from the Urban Outfitters website. It's a little bit over a hundred dollars at $130 which is not too bad for a polaroid camera. I often seen this camera a lot on tumblr and other popular Japanese websites and blogs so it seems like a pretty popular brand and good camera. The reviews on the website seem to be all positive too. The only downside to it is the expensive refill films that I have to purchase. However, I want a film camera where I could take photos when I go out traveling or sight seeing. I'm hoping to buy this camera by the end of year near Christmas (hopefully might hit a x'mas holiday sale then, lol) and because I'd be receiving some HST tax money in the mail in December which would help lower the fees I need to pay out of my own pocket. =)

New Favourite Bag & Jewleries

I know I haven't been updating/blogging for almost a month?! I've been meaning to blog and there are so many things that I want to blog about but it's just that I've been busy lately going out for the past few weekends.  

And then when I'm actually home, I just don't want to do anything like sit down and write a long entry on what's been happening in my life and all. In fact there are LOTS happening at the moment, lol. Instead, I'm on this lazy mode where I'm like, "oh let me check what's on tumblr" or "let me catch up on watching the TV shows that I've missed out on for the past couple of days" LOL. So yeah, that's what I've been busy doing instead of blogging. And because sometimes I just get extremely lazy to edit pictures and upload them to write a blog entry. However, I do miss blogging so much and I want to get back into blogging more often but sometimes life makes things difficult to do.  I really wish there are more hours in the day for me to do the things I want to get done. Sometimes I just feel like the day is so short although it is the summer and the day is suppose to be longer!

Anyway, I did some shopping recently that I want to blog about. I bought some gifts for 2 of my friends birthday that just passed and a few items for myself as well.
