01 Mood: It’s been alright lately. The days where I feel like I’m going to plotz in the middle of the hall have decreased ever since I went back to Clean Care for my contacts. For anyone who don’t know what Clean Care is, it’s a brand that provides a contact case that looks like strange alien abduction tool. You fill it to the brim with a fizzy clear liquid and they feel really fresh and moisturized in the mornings. Now that I can see where I’m walking (might explain why I’m always so clumsy and spazzy), my headaches have been greatly reduced.
Last movie you watched: I watched Real Steel with my friend Hadi on Sunday. I went in with absolutely no expectations (when a plot revolves around robot boxing, that’s really the best way to go into it) and was actually pretty impressed with the movie. It was extremely entertaining and the kids in there loved it. Hugh Jackson is still great at the “I am a tortured, masculine soul that needs redemption” image but Dakota Goyo was the best part of the movie. What an adorable kid.
03 What I’m watching: I haven’t started any new TV shows (although if anyone has any suggestions, I’m always open). I’m just keeping up with The Walking Dead, The Mentalist and Modern Family. I’m also trying to make my way through Death Note. I do like it but I keep forgetting to watch it. The plotline is much better than my vintage Anime loves (Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura) except I don’t covet anyone’s hairstyle yet :p
04 Best thing about this weekend: I got to meet up with a few friends that I haven’t seen in ages. I highly enjoy the company of people who take my fear of premature eye aging and schizophrenic eye crease sizes with a grain of humorous salt.
05 What makeup are you wearing today:
Face: Benefit’s Boi-ing concealer where I need it
Eyes: Stila’s Kitten cream shadow on lid and inner corners, Lorac’s Serenity in the outer creases, Physician’s Formula liquid eye liner in Brown and Lancome’s Definicils mascara
Cheeks: Mac Blushcreme in ladyblush
Lips: Korres lip butter in Pomegranate
I’m actually wearing eye make-up now. I really enjoy putting it on in the morning. All the colors I’m using are very neutral so it’s not a huge difference but I like the definition they give.
06 What skincare am I using today:
Morning: Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, Neostrata Daytime Smoothing lotion with sPF 15.
Makeup Remover: Origins Mega Mushroom cleanser, Bioderma Crealine on chin
Cleanser: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
Toner: Origins Mega Mushroom Toner
Moisturizer: Origins Mega Mushroom Serum under Origins Mega Mushroom Moisturizer. Neostrata Daytime smoothing lotion on chin
Lip balm: Lush lipscrub followed by Eucerin’s Aquaphor.
Oh yes, I know. My skincare routine has changed dramatically in the past week and a half. If it’s still good by December, I shall write a massively long review that will annoy any uninterested party.
07 What am I wearing today:
Gray Gap jeans, a white H&M top with slightly poofy sleeves, H&M Men ring trio necklace (Yes, I just made that name up. Yes, it sounds awesome), Marc by Marc Jacobs skull watch.
08 What am I reading: The Help by Kathryn Stockett and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I’m liking both. I just started The Help but I’m almost done The Hunger Games. It’s quite well-written, especially if you take into consideration that it’s a “young adult” book (The YA genre have gotten a bad reputation ever since Twilight came out. God help us all). The writing style is very straightforward, which I enjoy for the most part. It does come off awkward at the end when there are ~ feelings ~ involved but it was an enjoyable read.
I’m also looking forward to the movie. Back off, I love Jennifer Lawrence.
09 Makeup Lust: This new affection for eye make-up is going to cost me. I want Lancome’s Doll Lashes and the Urban Decay Naked Palette.
10. Listening to: Michael Buble’s It’s Time. I’ve really been liking his voice lately. Home is such a modern classic.
11. Clothing Lust: I’m hunting for a military style winter coat. My mom was originally going to get me the Calvin Klein military jacket but it only reached my waist and I would like a longer jacket to save me from the Canadian winds.
14 Current obsessions: Lip balms. I’m getting very dry lips when its cold. Aquaphor is great but I just wish it came in a compact form.
15 Aim for this week: Keeping depression at bay and attending all my classes (okay, if not all. At least 90% of them)
