Ramblings + Shopping.. What a Combination

Hey again guys, this blog post won't be like my previous ones. Just me talking so it's probably going to be a little boring.. or not. It's the weekend and usually I blog on the weekends so I was feeling bad for not posting anything here.

Happy that it's finally Spring but the weather really doesn't feel or look any different from Winter! The weather has been quite horrible in the last few days. The rain poured non-stop and the wind was sounded very fierce. Luckily I was inside yesterday but bad luck occurred when the POWER WENT OUT T__T We had a black out from 3pm til 7pm and this caused the net to be disconnected too :( So glad I had my phone to keep me from being bored. Ate instant noodles for dinner because using the stove was my only option and my family ate it as well. We sat around the dinner table eating with candles in the middle. Such a romantic setting but it seemed so awkward for me haha..

Having no electricity for 4 hours made me think about how lucky we all are, and how much we take electricity for granted. I'm so used to just turning on my heater whenever I feel cold. When the power was out I used my snug blanket, socks, scarf and gloves to keep me warm. So for those in the Northern Hemisphere that will be experiencing the cold weather soon, try to use alternative ways instead of electricity to keep warm during the Winter :) When the power was out I felt so lost without my heater =[ Shows how much I rely on it!

So Friday afternoon I finished early and instead of catching a bus home or go shopping in town, my mum picked me up as it was raining so much! I would have hated to catch a bus. We came home, had lunch and talked. Our conversation led to going shopping haha :D We realised that we still had time to shop at the shopping center near us so we went, despite it being wet outside. It was okay because we'd be staying indoors and there is heating in the shops.

Speaking of keeping warm in Winter, I bought two scarves from Target :) They were on sale for $4.96 each! Originally they're $15 so a definite saving there hehe. I bought two of the same design but different colours - pink and white. Great for matching with an outfit.


2 scarves, pink and white
They're so soft and fluffy ^_^

We also went into Priceline just to look around. We didn't buy anything cos there weren't any sales that appealed to us however the Pupa range caught my eye. I know, I talk about Pupa a lot but it's like how other people talk about MAC a lot haha. For your information, I don't own any MAC products! I probably will in the future but for now I'm like mehh. Sure it's great quality and all but I still love the drugstore stuff.

I tweeted that the Pupa 50% off sale is now over :( I wish I had came to this Priceline when they were on sale but i just never had the time to come to this shopping center. They have the biggest range that I have seen in the Priceline stores I've been to :O If only they were still 50%.. hahaha I'd go crazy.

The Pupa shelf - everything back to RRP! ='[
Imagine if there still were a 50% off sale.. *sigh*

I was also looking for a dress for my friend's 18th (which is in about 2 weeks time) because it's a semi-formal party. After looking through a number of stores, I came across a dress at ICE that was within my spending range and suited the semi-formal theme as it's not too dressy.. if you know what I mean. I'd probably like it more if it were on sale but for the RRP price it wasn't too bad. It was the last one of my size and there were only 2 of that dress left in size 6 and size 10. I have a little story about buying the dress etc. which I shared on my Twitter haha x)

I won't post a picture of it because I want to do an OOTN look with it when I'm all dressed up :D Here's a clue - it's lacy

Mum bought a few things and I was happy with what I bought. It's great shopping with my mum cos she pays for everything hahas =] But then again, she can decide what to and what not to pay for so I can't always get everything I want >_<

I guess this post hasn't been so pointless and boring after all. I'm more likely to feel that way than you are as the reader because I'm writing all of this x] But hey, please do let me know whether or not you'd like to see more of this types of posts which are not beauty related and just more about me in general.

Ohh and today in Australia it's Fathers' Day! Happy fathers' day to all the dads out there =] As usual and as bad as it may sound, I didn't get anything for my dad. You might be like 'what?' and before you make any judgments about me, my parents never expect anything from me when it's Mothers' or Fathers' day. They prefer me to either save my money or spend it something better. Haha, they're more likely to get angry at me for spending money on them, especially if they didn't ask for something or it's something they don't actually want! So yeah.. I guess it's good for both of us. Yay for Asian parents for not wanting anything from me ^_^ Only for me to study hard and get good grades ha.. okay maybe I'd rather get stuff for them to make them happy xD

For K-pop fans, you'd probably all know about the SM Town Live '10 concert in L.A at the Staples Center.. I so wish I could go :( But Even if the concert were somewhere in Aus (not in my city) then I probably still wouldn't be able to go!! Naww..

Video footage of SNSD's Jessica and F(x)'s Krystal singing 'Tik Tok' by Ke$ha. Sisterly love~


Credits to allkpop for uploading and recording! They had live picture updates on Twitter to let their followers know about what was going on :)

I think this is getting a little long now so I'm about to wrap it up! This week coming will be stressful and exciting so they sort of counteract each other. Yays and nays of the week. Let's start with the Nays:

NAYS of the week:
- Test to do
- Assignments due
- No early dismissal on Wednesday, have a school assembly -_-
- The weather doesn't seem to be warming up
- Not going to the show this year (the show = a carnival with rides, showbags, games to play etc that is on for 1 week each year in September)

YAYS of the week:
- Hopefully receiving parcels!
I'll be tweeting about anything I receive and I might update about them next weekend on my blog :) I am currently waiting on a total of 5 parcels to be sent to me hehehe
- One less week of school down
- Getting closer to the holidays

So that's about it. If you took the time to read this post, thank you!
