Annnnd… busy-ness…

So, apparently I started this at the worst time. This week I have a midterm to study for, a paper to write, and all the other regular reading I would have to do during a week, so it might be a few days before I can get around to some of the posts I want to write. I do want to do a review type post on the book I just finished on this blog, and I have some purchases and reviews to share on my other blog, but I suppose they will have to wait until Thursday night or so.
That kinda makes me sad, because I would much rather be doing this, but such is life. I mean, I paid for class, so I have to make that a priority, I suppose >_>…
Anyways, for those who have found this blog, thanks for reading! I swear it will turn into a real blog soon!
P.S.: to keep you happy for now, here’s a picture of the beautiful Jennifer Lawrence in her Oscar dress… because everybody who isn’t crazy loves Jennifer Lawrence! =)

My Valentine’s Day(s)

This year, I was lucky enough that my boyfriend had two days off the same time as Valentine’s Day, so I got to spend both the 13th and the 14th with him. This may not sound all that special to some of you, but considering he works 5 days a week, and last year he worked Valentine’s Day, it was pretty awesome for me.

We did our more official Valentine’s Day stuff on the 13th, so that it would be less busy, which was good, since we still had to make a reservation to get into Milestone’s for dinner! I’d never been to Milestone’s before, since we usually go to the Keg, so I was excited to try it, and I’m so glad we did. I had the Shanghai Chicken stirfry thing, which was so so delicious! I was so full by the time I finished, but finish it I did. (The first food picture below is what David had: the Portobello Mushroom Chicken pasta dish thing. Mine was so much better =P)



And here’s a random picture of me posing behind my strawberry lemonade, because David decided this picture should exist. I’m sharing because it actually turned out surprisingly well…


Also, I looked pretty awesome, if I do say so myself, and that isn’t something I would declare on a regular basis. I wore my new dress from eShakti.com, which is this cool site that you can pick a dress, make customizations, and plug in your own measurements, and they make the dress and ship it to you! If you’re wondering specifically which dress I’m wearing, it’s the “Her Fifties Sundress” in crimson. Over that, I wore a little half-length black sweater, and my new tan polka-dot wedge sandals from Forever 21.



If you want a closer look at my makeup, you can check out my Valentine’s Day FotD post on my other blog, where I also list all the products I used.

As a V-Day present, I also got the matching earrings to the ring and necklace that David bought me for our anniversary in October, so I have the whole matching set =):



On the 14th, we went to the mall for lunch at the food court, before driving out to Delta to find the only Krispy Kreme in BC. It was so so so worth it. I already knew that I loved their donuts from fundraisers at my highschool and then at my university, so it was awesome to get to go to the actual store. I had 2 donuts and a coffee while we were there, and then bought a box of 6 more to bring home. (You will soon realize, if you continue to read my blog, why I am not a skinny girl.) To be fair, three of those donuts were for my family, and the other three were for me!

We didn’t do too much else for actual Valentine’s Day, aside from start watching Star Wars. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen everything, but it’s been in bits and pieces, and some of it was a very long time ago, so I wanted to start again. I’m starting with the original trilogy and going from there, since it just seems more logical to me.


Anyway, that’s all for now. I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s day, let me know in the comments what you did, on your own or with someone else, I don’t care! =)

Thanks for reading!

First Post; Intro

Hey everyone, if you are finding this blog from somewhere that isn’t my other blog, MyGlitteryObsessions, then you might like a little intro about the purpose of this blog.

I’m creating this one because I often feel like talking about things that don’t really have anything to do with beauty or cosmetics, and I don’t want to put them on my other blog, since that is supposed to be its focus. However, I don’t just want to not talk about other things, and since my old personal blog was and will remain private, even if I never use it, I thought I would start this one to share with whoever wants to read.

My posts will generally focus around fashion/clothing, food, books, and random stuff from my life, for example, if I want to brag about an awesome day. I may also nerd out about TV shows or movies, or post haul posts that aren’t beauty related. I may also post random quiz/survey results, but I’ll try to keep those to a minimum unless people want to see those.

I think that’s about all I have to share for now. Thanks for reading!
