7 DAYS since my last update! How is everyone doing?

First, since I'm low on time, I'll respond to your comments from my last post here:

Popcorn:  I'm so glad you like the TM!! I was crossing my fingers. He he.

Shop N' Chomp:  Yeah, I think you should give DL1961's a try. I have similar issues as you do but I have thicker thighs.  :P

LittoMokaa:  So far I don't like the dimethicone one either. Haha.

Cushy:  Yep, I'll do mini-reviews on the sunscreens.

Rainy Days and Lattes:  Sure, I'll review the night jelly.  :)

So, there have been a lot changes in my life which I won't go into the details of. Life is so unpredictable! It seems like I say this every year, but it's just as true this year, if not more so. Life is like this for me right now:

Last week was pretty dreary, and there was lots of thunder and lightening. I quite like though, don't you? Thunder is the click of God's camera, and lightening is the flash! So I always smile.

I'm in the process of obtaining my Visa so I can go to Asia this summer.  Don't be fooled by the easy paperwork - the tricky part is turning in your application to the office: 

After my number is called (3 hours later), I went up to the counter. A lady with circle lenses and weird inner corner highlight (abbreviation: Lady with CL and WICH) took a look at my Visa application:

Lady with CL and WICH:   You're not born here?

Me:   Nope.

Lady with CL and WICH:   You need your old Visa papers.

Me:  Oh. OK...

Lady with CL and WICH:   Those are the regulations.

Me:   Is there a reason why it's needed?

Lady with CL and WICH:   Those are the regulations.

Me:   Oh.

Lady with CL and WICH:   ....*SIGH!* They want to see what kind of person you were before you became a US citizen!

Me:  ...

Anyway. Peace out gang!! Be back next time with a real beauty post!

My order from came in a few days ago (it took 2+ weeks because I was silly and ordered during Easter weekend). I got a few sheet masks - Silk Whitia had a BOGOF deal, so it was a good time to stock up.  I also got a sleeping mask for days when I'm too lazy to wait for sheet masks. And lastly a couple of sunscreens. Since I'm going to be in Asia this summer, I thought I'd try a higher SPF.

This is everything.

When John D. from contacted me about doing a review for a hairdryer, I was excited! I've only ever used 2 hairdryers in my life: 1) a cheapie mini dryer from who knows where and 2) Panasonic National foldable dryer.  Obviously, I wanted to know what I'm missing out on in the dryer world.  I was sent the HANAair Premiere dryer a couple weeks back, and feel that I'm now able to comment on it.

An unexpectedly big box.

Ta-da... lots of stuff! Including a really nice note from John, cases, a stuffed monkey, sanitizers, nail files, and Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner.

But anyway, the main event is the hairdryer.

The dryer itself is not that big...

Hello! I recently caught up on all my lectures, so this is a good time to blog. : )  A couple of you were interested in SEACRET, having seen it in malls being promoted by pushy sales reps.  I certainly understand how this can dissuade people from trying their stuff, but I actually find it to be a solid brand.

SEACRET Cuticle Oil, Natural Body Lotion. The vile of oil is cute, but I would've preferred a wider base so it stands more stably.

The bottle is stiff, so you can't squeeze - just pour it out. There is a slight tendency to pour out more than you need, but the top is bottle-nosed so as to prevent spillage.

Really thin formula.
