The greenery

I was in the kitchen washing dishes when B pressed his face against the glass door to our deck exclaiming, "I need this!"

He was talking about the greenery in our yard and I had to laugh.  He's in love with our yard while I'm slightly terrified of it - there's a lot of trees and space. 

I unlocked the door and said "Ok, you country bumpkin, let's get you some fresh air." 

"I grew up with this you know!" *sticks his head out* 

"Did you lived in the country side up till you moved to Canada?"

"Yeah. I'll show you my hood when we go there" (Saitama, Japan)

"I'd like that" 


I can't wait to visit Japan.  I'm not sure when we'll get to go because B wants to stay for a whole month if we do.  Which translate to lots of money that we currently don't have. lol.

Lipstick issue

I have a crap ton of lipsticks.  But lately, by the time I finished applying my makeup, I just grab a tinted lip balm and run out the door. 

Just looking at my collection feels overwhelming and I can't decide on which color I want to use.

Such a ridiculous first world problem.

I woke up at 1pm today. Rolled around in bed, slapped on some makeup and went out for Ramen and dessert.

We visited Breka, a 24h café where B and I frequented when we were broke ass night owls.  

He battled massive traffic jam just because I was feeling nostalgic.

I'm so freakin' spoiled by him. Whatever I want, I'd usually get. But starting tomorrow, I have to get back to being a productive human being.

"Gone Girl"

I just finished "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn. I loved it.

My sis says the movie made her depressed but I haven't seen the movie so I can't comment on it. 


One of my fav. quote:

"It makes me think that everyone is very wrong. That love should have many conditions. Love should require both partners to be their very best at all times." 


The book might not be for everyone but I highly recommend.

Marc Jacobs nail polish review.

I am exhausted.  I barely have time to sleep.  The house is a monster . There's always something to fix or maintain. 


Here's a quick post on Marc Jacobs nail polishes. Despite the price tag, I've managed to collect a few bottles and my current favorite has gotta be Jezebel.  It's a red, ox blood kind of color.

What I love about his polishes is they just look expensive on the nails.  And the shine last for days. 

Chipping is minimal and i find myself admiring my own nails frequently.

I'm pretty bad at applying polish. Lol.

The Verdict

Remember a while back when I said I was gonna try to start a mini graphic design business?  

The verdict is in - I have crashed and burned.  

I'm like 99% sure I don't want a design business.  Freelancing? Yes. It's nice to be able to pick and choose work, or don't pick anything at all and just sit home and scratch my ass.  I like the freedom.  


So that pretty much means I'm back to blogging. LOL.  I'm meeting up with my friend tomorrow to off load the majority of the work to her.  

I'm lucky that my bf doesn't push me to work hard.  As a matter of fact, he's happier when I clean the house, bake failed cheesecake, and make food for him instead of going to work.  

But I am going to work, we can't afford me to be a house wife yet - and we both know I need to work or I will get bored and cause problems for him.

I should take a hint.

I visited Chapters with one goal in mind: Crash course on online marketing. I've been given a bunch of marketing work and I feel like I'm in over my head.

1 hour later. I walked out with a bottle of golden balsamic vinegar and a recipe book on high tea snacks. 

I really should learn to read the signs. I don't think I like working very much.
