busy busy!

Hey yall

I'm so sorry for not posting for a while.

I have a hectic week >_<
  • marketing test tuesday
  • country case report essay due wednesday
  • music assessment thursday (sing, play recorder, play piano, play xylophone)
  • supply chain management test saturday

I finished other midterms some week ago but for some reason I'm swamped again with tests! this is ridiculous

I must admit it is my fault for poor time management. I should have done my country case report long time ago so that would have been wiped out. And I should have had all my articles read already for marketing to be able to start studying the powerpoints today instead of scrambling to read everything.

I am doing a tad better on time management though despite what I just said lol. I'm writing everything down in a time tracker and my wipey board calendar and setting complete-assignment day goals.

I just need to get this part done and overwith so I can begin my no-procrastination habit better!

Well I'm gonna go finish up my articles. Hope yall are doing well

For those of you who are college students, goodluck on yall's midterms!!!

Houston Contemporary Art Museum Fashion Show (pic heavy)

Hey yall :)

This is a LONGGGGGGGGGGG overdue post lol. I forgot about this stash of photos in the midst of my lost-card-reader period of time and I just watermarked them all a day or two ago :)

Sorry if I crashed your computer :< There's 23 pics!

These aren't real designers. They are students who are inspired to become a designer one day :) They did a very nice job!!

Urban Decay Primer Potion Professional Size!

Hey yall!

Ok so I was planning to get Too Faced Shadow Insurance originally. I walked into ULTA today after school and then wanted to compare the sizes of TFSI and UDPP and I was like okay, TFSI is .35 fl oz, lemme check UDPP. Then when I got to the Urban Decay section, I was like WHOAAAAAAA what's this....this looks very very familiar.....


UDPP, SQUEEZE TUBE instead of that stupid genie bottle going on.

andddd its .84 fl oz ZOMG. this should last me like 2 years lol. hopefully it wont dry out :(

oh and ULTA gave me a freebee, because if you buy that professional size, you get a free sample of either the regular UDPP or one of the colored eyelid primers. I chose the colored primer to experience something new since I just bought that giant tube of UDPP--I don't need anymore for quiteeeee a while lol.

Plus it's cheaper per fl. oz if you get the big tube. it's .34 fl oz for the regular genie bottle listed at like $17. If you buy 2 of those, you would be spending $34 right? and that only yields .64 fl oz. vs .84 fl oz at $29 + tax ($31.xx total).

So here's my new baby below :D

Nails : Strawberry and Sprinkles :)

Hey yall :)

These nails were from...I think 2 weeks ago? I forgot to upload it but here yall go!

Products used:

  • Orly Nail Bonder (base coat)
  • Goldie Nail Polish in Pansy (friend gave me this as part of birthday present so I don't know where to purchase this) [its the pink polish in this picture]
  • Covergirl Boundless Color Nailpolish in #405 Disco Dazzle (sparkles at the tip)
  • Konad Nail Stamp plate # m55 (strawberries :D )
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Man it took like 4 coats of the pink polish to get this opaque lol I finally realized to go in THIN layers rather than just do multiple thick coats hoping to get my polish opaque. All that does is get it all thick and goopy. Big mistake. O well now I know! :)

lol and for the sparkles, I had to take my time to swirl the brush inside the bottle to capture the big glitter flakes xD That took me the longest in doing these nails.

I'm telling you all that not to complain, but because I always look at other's nails and wonder how they did it so fast so easily and then I end up thinking I'm nail-polish-challenged haha. Nah I just wanted to let yall know I struggle with this and worked hard on these nails, not magically put them on like I'm some perfect nailpolish person. It definitely takes practice. I used to spend like 30 minutes (sometimes even an hr!! ) figuring out how to paint my nails without a huge mess. Now after a YEAR of practicing (yes im that slow!! ) I finally can paint my nails in like 10-15 min, sometimes less if I'm just doing a plain coat of polish. Success! haha. So don't feel discouraged if yall haven't gotten the hang of painting your nails. Took me quiteeeee a while lol


Well, hope yall enjoyed!

See yall later :)

Puny Skincare Haul

Hey yall :)

Went yesterday to 99 Ranch Market to pick myself up a face wash since I ran out of my Shiseido Pure Whip. They didn't have any of that left in stock, which saddens me, but I think my sister told me that either Golden Food Market or Welcome market should have it (Bellaire street of course)

I was wanting to try out a new face wash anyway since I've used up 3 tubes of the Shiseido. I felt like my skin was going to become immune to the effectiveness of Shiseido Pure Whip so I wanted to change things up. I spent SO long at 99 ranch market trying to figure out what to get.

I read all the ingredients and I noticed a good number of the face washes had Mineral Oil in it...which sucks because I don't feel mineral oil is good for my skin. I wanted to get the Hyaluronic Acid face wash form Hadabisei or whatever that Japanese brand is, but it had Sulfur, which all of you know I am allergic to.

Instead, I opted for Softymo Collagen Cleansing Wash.

I also was running out of eye makeup remover. I've been using the Target dupe for Neutrogena's eye makeup remover in the blue bottle. I heard many good things about Super Off Eye Make-Up Remover so I got it. But MANNNNNNNN $15 for that 4.0 fl oz tube is RIDICULOUS. I wonder if it's even a miracle worker.

I did try it out today tho. Seems to work well so far but I cant stand the price tag.


I'll report back to yall on these two products once I've used it a good while to judge how well it works.

Question: Best At-Home Wax Kit? Epilator? What Do You Use? Help :(

Alright so we all have our ways to get rid of the unfortunate fuzzies :<
  • waxing
  • threading
  • epilator
  • plucking
  • shaving
  • cream hair removal (veet or nair etc)

Right now I'm waxing my legs and I can't keep going to the salon forever. Too much money, but I just hate shaving all the time =/ Is there a specific kit yall can recommend me from the drugstore? I've used Sally Hansen's lavender colored one(pictured below)...I didn't like it =/ . Is there any at-home waxing that's as good as the one in the salon?

I also heard a rumor that waxing over time:
  1. can thin out the hair so that you have less hair to remove or that it becomes less visible

    and/or

  2. can cause wrinkles to your skin
Is this true? I'm sure the first one is true just because my friend had thick hair and after 1-2 years of waxing her hair grew thinner. I also visibly see my hair a TAD thinner than it was before. But I'm concerned about the 2nd one. Any word on it?

I have a friend who uses the Epilator but it looks scary to me, but if it's really effective then I guess it's worth it. Do any of yall use one?


photo credit: google


One thing I've always been curious about is Veet. I've seen so many ads for the "bladeless hair removal". Girls, does it work?? xD And how long does it last? Does your hair need to be a certain length before you cream-remove it again ? I know for waxing your hair has to be 1cm long so the wax has something to grip onto. I want to try this so badly! Any warnings or tips yall can give me?



photo credit: google


I've read some Makeup Alley reviews, but I'd love to hear help from YOU :) Please do respond :< T___T

(oh, and I heard very bad ratings on MUA bout this Veet bladeless kit lol)

Thank yall! Hope to hear from yall soon :< cuz I have a coupon for Ulta for $5 off $10 purchase and I was hoping to know what to buy before the expiration date stops at Sunday October 23rd xD

What's In IchigoBunnie's Purse?

Hey yall :)

I've never done one of these before and I always see bloggerettes showcase their bag, so here it goes! :D

and..really, it's nothing grand lol.

Top Shop (PS1 dupe bag) I didn't get this bag just for the sake of trying to have a high designer brand bag. I wanted the original design for the organization it provides and the leather is sturdy and it looks sophisticated/professional enough, but also pretty so it isn't desk-job-old lady ish. The strap is very convenient when I wanna go shopping and I need 2 hands to shuffle through the clearance section :D
