I want to win the trip to Toronto so that I can bring my mom there and let her relax. I'll bring my dad too, via my own wallet. It's another stop motion video that took a while to film and edit. But I hope you enjoy it! Here's the link. If you like it, please vote for it and you can vote daily until the deadline which is Friday. Thank you!

FOB: Arrr! I think I see me some Holika Holika!

I went to Toronto a few weekends ago. While I was there, I dropped by Pacific Mall as usual. They have really good and affordable bubble tea that are made with real mangoes. The mall also carries clothes, purses, skincare, and make up that I love. I bought this cute nautical shirt-it literally screams "aye aye captain"-from a store called Voir. To my surprise, the mall managed to get a Holika Holika store! I was jumping from the excitement when I saw it. It was perfect timing since I needed a facial cleanser. The annoying thing about the store was that there were these four SAs that kept squealing and yapping in Korean while I was in there...Not exactly professional because it automatically made me feel like they were talking about me -_-;; Unlike the stores of the same brand in Korea, this one did not give out samples. Prices ranged depending on the product you buy. Some coloured cosmetics cost $20CAD+ while my Snow White cleanser only costs $16CAD. From T&T (a popular Asian grocer), I bought the Mandom Cleaning Express Moist that the muse raved about. I don't own any cleansing oil so this was a good choice. Hopefully, these products live up to their name~

DIY: Under the Sea Ear Cuff Part 1

Hi everyone! How have you been? I'm guessing that many of you are busy watching the Olympics :) Although I enjoy watching the games, I've also been doing some DIY projects. I keep seeing ear cuffs dominate retail stores at prices that are unrealistic. I decided to make my own and customize it to satisfy my inner hipster! Haha. I filmed a tutorial which is broken up into 2 parts. The first part shows you how to make the basic cuff and the second part shows you how to decorate it. I wanted an "under the sea" theme and I had a seahorse charm lying around which was perfect. So without further ado, here's part 1 of the tutorial and some photos.

Here's what you'll need:
  • Jewelry wire -Hong Kong (I used 0.5mm)
  • Round nose plier -Hong Kong
  • Flat nose plier -Hong Kong
  • Cutting plier -Hong Kong
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
You should be able to find all the supplies and materials in your local craft store ex. Michael's

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial! Feel free to leave any questions below ^^ 

Check out part 2 here!
