Long time no see

It's the first time i have blogged in almost 7 months! I miss blogging so much and it disappeared from my life for quite some time. I will be leaving to university at the end of august it is my first year! I cannot believe time passed this quickly, my blog is over a year old. I hope to be updating again, now. i can post via android so it might be a lot easier. See you all soon!

Surprise Gift and Current Updates

So I have been MIA once again for a month. Once you get out of the blogging mood, it really doesn't want to make you budge. My personal life has been very busy including new relationship, schoolwork, and stress from everything. Maybe I shouldn't be making excuses? I need to use blogging as an outlet to relieve stress!! :)

Anyway I will be posting today a very belated one on a Secret Santa gift I received from Fuzkittie way back in the end of December.

Her gift included a very cute Christmas/New Year's card, two perfume samples, a L'Occitane lipgloss and cream set, and a JuJu Cosmetics primer.
The JuJu hyaluronic primer that I haven't even tried yet :( Can't put lots of base makeup because it has been causing me blemishes...

The hand cream is in Sweet Cherry and the lipgloss is also a Cherry Blossom flavor. Both are really moisturizing and I love them! I loved the hand cream so much that I was tempted to buy the set from Sephora...

So I ended up hauling a little! I think this was the time when that Beauty Insiders $15, $25 off coupon was going around. I think mine was only $15 off a $35 purchase. I also bought the Rosebud Salve trio which is really cute!

Close-up shot of all the lipbalms and the canister. Right now I've only opened the Minted Rose salve. I love the tingly feeling I get when I spread this on my lips. I don't know if this was a good purchase because it was rather impulsive but I still like the product! It gives a very juicy look to the lips and plumps them up.

So this President's holiday I had a week off from school and it happened to be my grandmother's one year death anniversary. It is a very important date in Japanese Culture and it is called Isshuki (一周忌). I know this might be a morbid picture but my grandmother's family grave is very pretty! It is a quiet and private area with large space. I didn't travel to Japan only to visit a grave, of course I took advantage of the chance to go shop around and meet up with various members of family. I tried to plan to meet with some bloggers like Kay and Nic Nic but it didn't work out because Kay was busy and I didn't have enough time to meet Nic :( However I will try to meet them again next time!

I hope I will not give up blogging. I still read people's blogs daily but I am very lazy to update my own. Blogging is really fun for me and I've met a lot of genuine people. Take care, everyone!

Blair's Love Pack + Finally, Update!

Wow I have been MIA for a month and a couple weeks now! Things have gotten busy for me with school and work, also I've become a little lazy as well... Must be a diligent blogger!
This post is going to about a little parcel I got from BLAIR before the holidays and what I did over the holiday vacation.
Here's a little sneak peek at what Blair got for me :)

Blair and I started to chat and email each other frequently in December and we decided to do a small love pack exchange :) Blair and I have similar tastes and interests so we each requested some things from each other. I requested specifically from her the Rimmel Gloss Maxx Lipsticks and the Maybelline Angelfit foundation. I've yet to try them for a prolonged period so I will do so soon and review them.
A mask, L'occitane lipgloss, cuticle oil pen, eye spongies, Tony Moly lipbalm and mascara (not to mention her cute little note! Look at that neat handwriting)

Maybelline Angelfit! Can't wait to see how this works on me.

Wow, look at the snacks Blair sent me! We both love food and candies... And Japanese Kitkats!
This is the Ramune flavored KitKat. Yummy, no?

So over the holiday break, I took a family vacation to Winter Park, Colorado for some skiing. This is an annual vacation that my family has taken for over ten years (and to the same place). Here we are at one of the slopes... I am with my mom.

Moguls! Yay :) Like my sticker on my helmet?

The first two days were freezing so I had to use handwarmers. I had these Hello Kitty handwarmers from my friend in Japan. Aren't they cute? They last for about 8 hours too.

On a random note, some guy got JERK written on his car because he parked weirdly... He parked in the middle of nowhere and other people couldn't get out. It was so funny that I just had to take a picture.

It was nice to update again, I've become so lazy to even write blog posts but I'll try to write at least once or twice a week. It is my new year's resolution! I'm also trying to organize another blog sale for myself so maybe next week I will let all of you know when that happens. Thanks for the support that I've gotten from my longtime (and new) readers and followers, thank you so much for staying with me even though I've neglected you all for a month!
