Me2Day: Weekend Workload MAX OUT!

Listening to: nothing again.. (just wanted a peaceful place to think)
Mood: Content

I hope none of you kill me but I haven't been paying any attention to the Royal Wedding :P I'm just not that into it, I guess. Kate looks stunning in her wedding dress!

This weekend is jam packed with work and I have so many things that I want to do, but I'm not sure if I'll find the time to. Like baking fruit tarts and blogging... Huge apology again! Right now, I'm still trying to recover from the exhaustion from this week. Also, my birthday is coming up in 9 days which happens to be Mother's Day. The other complication is that I'll be in New York City ^^ First in my life ever! I'm really excited (haha) to a point that I already had a nightmare about it... O_o So all you ladies out there, do you have any good reccomendations for food and shopping? Please leave me some love below~ Other than that, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

And I'll leave you with a special something ^.^

Homemade cupcakes galore~!

Unspoken Gluttony: McDonald's Double Fillet O'Fish

This came out a while ago...I think it may have been limited edition. Don't get it. It's like dumping 5 bucks down the drain xD It's a little too heavy for my liking and I prefer the normal Fillet O'Fish. They're exactly the same it's just that you get more fish with this one.

Spotted! Joe Fresh Cream Eyeshadow in Cactus & Blush in Rose

I saw this Joe Fresh display at my local Loblaw. They both have semi-matte packaging and the cream eyeshadow in Cactus is a bronzey moss green with gold flecks in it. The cream blush in Rose looks like a rosy baby pink.

Me2Day: Happy Easter, Lovely Bunnies!

This will be a new type of post: random and daily ramblings, current obsessions, daily "do"s etc. I wanted to conserve the traditional essence of blogging ;) And by the title, this is inspired by the Korean (I'm guessing blogging site) called me2day.

Listening to: (nothing at the moment =P I'm concentrating on catching up with blogging!)
Mood: Neutral, nothing special really.

First of all, I wish everyone a Happy Easter! Hope you are enjoying the egg hunts, chocolate, (Cinna)bunnies, family and friends ^^

Here is my NOTD (somewhat Easter inspired and because I couldn't choose between the two colours :S)
Products Used:
Joe Fresh Nail Polish in Mint and Faded Violet (review here)

And my EOTD
Product Used:
Annabelle Custom Quad Mono Eyeshadow in Fantasy
NYX Loose Pearl Eyeshadow in Yellow Gold Pearl
Annabelle Pigment Dust in Chiffon
Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Serum + Eyeliner in Ultra Black
Covergirl Lash Blast Luxe in Black Emerald

As a huge Big Bang and 2NE1 fan, I am (hopefully) up to date with them xD Park Bom recently released her new single "Don't Cry" and I must admit, I LOVE IT! She is very talented and her voice is totally unique. No one can recreate it in my opinion. She is my favourite for a reason ^.^

Yesterday, I met a total jerk. He was such a...GRRR. Just makes me mad. Like talk about rude! Sure, I might not be the best player around but that doesn't mean you have to shake your head in front of my face and pretty much imply, "No, I don't want to play a game of badminton with you cuz it's obvious that you suck." EFFFFFFF YOU, MAN! Ever heard of manners? That is definitely not how you treat a female...You're gonna get it.

*cools down*
So let me know what you think about these posts :D My life feels very ordinary besides the beauty-related part. Do you have any "enraged" moments? Do share!

Wear It & Share It: H&M Concious Collection

Huh? Sandara Park (2NE1) for H&M Concious Collection? Naaaah. That was my initial reaction when I first saw this picture of her for Etude House on Allkpop~ I've gotta admit, she looks really pretty and cute!
*All prices in CAD*


 Here it is on me :) Not as cute, I know...with the orange cami and all... 
Organic Cotton Waistcoat $12.95

Organic Cotton Top $29.95
This was originally on my wishlist. But I decided that it didn't look good enough for me to take it home.

Organic Cotton Top $19.95
 This was shorter than I expected it to be! I do like the back though.

Recycled Polyester Dress $24.95
 Hated this. I tried it on for fun and I'm glad I did. Now I can warn all of you to NOT buy it. That is, unless you like super staticky and see-through fabric.

Organic Cotton Dress $12.95
 I thought I'd be able to get away with kid pieces. Boy was I wrong. You see the line around the chest? Not comfortable. It's super tight and see-through!

This dress wasn't from the Concious Collection but it's cute! It looks better on my friend though (except she didn't admit it haha).
I was REALLY disappointed because the knit shorts and the really pretty dress that I wanted were only available in certain stores. And the one that I have access to doesn't carry. The knit shorts were my favourite! However, I did not go home empty-handed. Guess which piece from this post came home with me?

What about you? Any thoughts or did you change your mind about anything?

Wishlist: H&M Concious Collection

This collection hits stores tomorrow! I think I might not be able to go anytime soon. It's sad...hopefully the pieces that I like won't go too fast! 

Really want to own a pair of knit shorts!

I just love whites and creams. The simplicity of these pieces are just....beyond words. LOVE! 

So is there anything that catches your eye?

Spotted! Bath & Body Works C.O. Bigelow Organics Lipglosses and Fruit Scented Rose Salve

 C.O. Bigelow Organics Lipglosses in Ripe Blackberry(purple), Strawberries & Cream(pink), and Golden Peach (peachy pink).

I tried on Golden Peach and compared to the Mentha Lip Tint in Pink Mint (by the same company), this on glides on more smoothly as its consistency is more watery but not runny. It smells and tastes like peaches too! It shows up clear on my lips. I believe it was a sheer gold but I couldn't tell exactly in the store's lighting.

C.O. Bigelow's original Rose Salve in normal packaging, new packaging (really pretty and suits spring!), Apple Rose Salve (sounds delsih ;), and Blueberry Rose Salve. I wonder what colours they'll be. 

If you have already tried them, be sure to let me know!

Spotted! Limited Edition Covergirl Clean Compacts

Spotted these LE CoverGirl Clean Pressed Powder compacts at Shoppers Drug Mart (currently $7.99CAD) and a portion of the proceeds will go towards getting children in Africa clean water ^^ So it's a very good cause. The only variations of the powder that I saw were the normal(brown/cheetah) and sensitive(green/snake) type. I find the oil control(blue/zebra) to be the most appealing. Sadly, they didn't carry it.

Talk about wild. rawr.

Spotted! L'Oreal & Revlon Limited Edition Collections

Shoppers Drug Mart
Bronze Intrigue Limited Edition Collection

The product that intrigued (haha) me the most is the L'Oreal HiP Shine Struck Liquid Lipcolor. They look highly pigmented and I really love corals ^^

This is a really good deal bundle since the Magic Perfecting Base usually retails for a high price. If you had your eye on this for a while, it's a good time to get it! The coloured primers look interesting enough =P They seem a little gimmicky to me though since coloured primers never work on me.

Zellers & Pharmaplus
Revlon Romantics Limited Edition Collection

You see those little round pots? Those are the new Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Balm. I can tell you that the texture is rather hard and slightly sticky. It applies super sheer (probably won't show up on lips) and it gives a shiny finish. It also includes a brush hidden in the top compartment. All shades have sparkles. My friend recently bought one and she told me about the product. 

Random question: Would you swatch a product if it was already swatched and opened although it wasn't a tester? *Before I saw the Revlon display, one of the lip balms were already opened :/ Some had broken the seal and swatched it!*

Sweet Treats: Tim Hortons Real Fruit Smoothies

Mixed Berry
 This is my favourite out of the two because it tastes less artificial. The mixed berry smoothie is more tangy and you can actually taste the melange of blackberries, blueberries and strawberries. You can also see the seeds.

Strawberry Banana

The strawberry banana smoothie taste really artificial; the banana flavour is too overpowering, making it overly sweet. I do not recommend this flavour. You can see strawberry seeds in this one too.

Weighing in at 160 calories (without yogurt), the smoothies are definitely a better alternative when you need something sweet and cool to quench your thirst during the summer. An iced cap has 310 calories and I believe they both cost $1.99CAD for a small (correct me if I'm wrong). If you're looking for actually fruit chunks or fruits being blended into a smoothie, then this isn't for you. When I bought this, I noticed that they had a slushy looking machine with clear liquid in it, and I think they just poured some fruit juice in it and mixed it with the slushy base. It still tasted good haha

 I can finally feel that spring is in the air! Hooray for warm weather! Now I can drink these smoothies without the shivers ^^

Wear It & Share It: Spring 2011

This post is a little different from my last "Wear It & Share It" post. Instead of focusing on one piece of clothing and finding the many ways to wear it, I went around to stores trying on newly released clothes. This is obviously collective and it spans over 2-3 months of trying on clothes. I just wanted to show you what certain clothes look like on an actual person :) Let's say that this is my attempt to give you a helpful guide(?!) before you step into a store of your preference and see the perfect piece (the one that literally glows as if it's in a halo) but find out later that it looks horrible on you....That happened to me many times, sadly. In the end, I didn't actually buy any of the things that I tried on because they were either too expensive or the quality wasn't great or I just didn't love it. This post is picture heavy so beware! raaaawr.

Flower detail t-shirt ~$20.00CAD
