Yes, I'm officially in my 'late' twenties now. No longer 'early' or 'mid'. It's strange knowing that after this, the years are gonna roll by and before I know it I would have hit 30. I've always wondered where I'll be and what I will be doing when I turn 30. Now, it's just a couple of years away and I'm still no where.
A day before my birthday was the Clubhouse's annual Drunk Fest: Tequila Night. Was not planning to drink but spent the night and morning hugging toilet bowls, wash basins, plastic bags and waste paper basket. What a way to start.
Me and Tequila are not friends. Never were, never will be. Period
Later the evening, I treated my family to our favourite japanese restaurant: Isaribi Tei.
My promise to myself this year was to look pretty for my birthday unlike my previous birthday which had me looking all tired and haggard. I dressed up, looked nice, smell nice, etc and ... argued with the boss of the restaurant /facepalm
Isaribi Tei is as well known for the affordable and nice japanese cuisine as it is for the extremely rude boss. We never had a problem till that night. It left me a little pissed and I guess me and JH's weekly meal there instead will be a monthly thing instead.
JH gave me a choice between a bag, a laptop or a watch. I picked a watch.
I guess you know when to retire your liquid eyeliner when the consistency of the eyeliner becomes diluted and uneven. Behold.
Luckily about 4 months ago, I purchased the Dolly Wink black eyeliner from Sasa. There was raves about how good and fantastic they were so out of curiosity I got them. I'm happy to say I have no regrets at all. I do wonder if it'll turn gray and diluted on me later tho.
No problem washing this off since I use oil cleansers.
The liner is easy to use and can be used to draw both thick and think lines without problems. The only thing that I would like to point out is that it strangely smudges on me despite me using UDPP as base. I don't expect anyone else to have this problem since it's more of a mono lid problem. *shrugs*
In life, I hardly, close to never experience creasing problem but I smudge all the *toot toot toot bleeeep* time.
The lady who sold me the pigments was really popular seller in a forum I frequent and besides pigments, she also sells eye base which she claimed made the pigments waterproof. I happily purchased the eye base. To cut things really short. We later found out the eye base was actually Vaseline from Watsons. One reason why my pigments didn't stay on my lids, colours came out horrible, muddy and it does the David Copperfield ie: Disappears. I shelf the pigments till now.
Dug up an old lip gloss of mine and slather it on
For my birthday I painted the usual OPI Off with her Red and once it started chipping, I used black to do a sort of frenchie.
Then I came across Tiffany-Kim's blog and saw this:
Fell in love with it and was so eager to try it. I have a strange love for floral patterns. Bags, clothes, rose scented perfumes etc. I'm quite sure I probably remind some of you of your grandma T.T *sniffs*
Of course, knowing my luck, I accidentally knocked over the bottle and it fell on my favourite pajamas, giving me a suspicious looking GREEN period-like stain.
My first ever angry bird. Made it for Jobie's belated birthday but Pinky Doodle Doo nabbed it. Sorry for the blurry pics, it's not easy taking a snap shot of something on your thumb.
