MAC-ing and Random Little Things...

Ahhh I feel like summer's rushing to an end, must savor every last bit of it!! (You must know that summer is my favorite season!)

I really want to comment back to a lot of your comments, sorry it's taking me some time to do so! Please don't think I'm being a snob! 죄송합니다! *bows*

I got a new camera! (I gave my old one to my sister since hers was stolen.)

Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS

It's a Canon because I am brand loyal...all of my cameras have been part of the Canon family (and my scanners and printers too). What I really love about this one is its small and slim size, not to mention it's very light! I really need to buy a case for it though and learn how to use it properly (thank goodness for Auto mode).

OPI Flower By Flower
(Summer Flutter Collection 2010)

I wanted a bright color for summer! I find a lot of OPI's corals and oranges this year to be verrrrry tempting but as I am too chicken to try them, I stuck with a girly bright Barbie pink! Maybe one day I shall be brave and venture out of my comfort zone.

I am a frequent visitor of Mitsuwa and Marukai, and also a sucka for packaging, so I ended up with these false lashes:

I believe they were about $3 each...and honestly, though they look nice, they're really not worth purchasing. The bands are thick and lashes are very your money and buy Darkness/Shisem/Red Cherry/etc.!

Anyone remember "The Emperor's New Groove?" hehe That's one of my fav Disney quotable. =)

[Kuzko collides with an old man while dancing]
Kuzco: D'oh! You threw off my groove!
Guard: I'm sorry, but you've thrown off the Emperor's groove.
[the old man is thrown out of the palace window]
Pacha: What happened?
Old Man: Well, I threw off the Emperor's groove.
Pacha: What?
Old Man: His groove! The rhythm in which he lives his life. His pattern of behavior. I threw it off. And the Emperor had me thrown out the window.
Pacha: Oh, really? I'm supposed to see him today.
Old Man: Don't throw off his groove!
Pacha: Oh, okay.
Old Man: Bewaaare, the grooove.
Pacha: Hey, are you gonna be all right?
Old Man: Grooove...

(*quotes from IMDB) whenever something or someone bothered me, I used to think "You threw off my groove! Don't throw off my groove! *toss person out the window*," because it'd amuse me and I'd feel less annoyed. =P


MAC MSFs (Mineralize Skin Finishes) from "In The Groove" Collection

It was a downright adventure getting these! Well, mainly Stereo Rose. But I'm glad I did as I'm really into blushers lately and didn't have a coral one. Also I wanted By Candlelight when it came out in an earlier collection (Warm and Cozy?) but couldn't find it before. It's such a pretty highlighter! I should have swatched them but I didn't, sorry, but I'm sure you've seen swatches if you don't have already them!

By Candlelight
Golden pink

Stereo Rose
Coral with golden/bronze shimmering nuances

I also got enabled by Giang big time a few weeks ago and realllllllly wanted this:

MAC Lipstick in Jazzed - Bright coral pink (Cremesheen)

I wanted to kick myself for not getting it when I got the MSFs and knowing that it was all sold out, but luckily (or not so luckily for my spending/saving habits), it was back on the site and I also got free shipping! It's a great shade for summer and again, I didn't have a coral lipstick. In general I'm not a big fan of MAC lipsticks as I prefer creamy lippies, but this is my first Cremesheen and so far, I like it.

Lastly...I made a sad attempt to show those goodies on my face! Though I love my new camera, it tends to overexpose pictures...which is usually great but not when I'm trying to show makeup in true color. 미안합니다!

Gosh...someone needs to dye her roots! haha I really dislike my bangs currently, can't wait for them to grow a bit longer!

P.S. In case you are wondering, the 2 Korean expressions I wrote are "죄송합니다"(joesonghabnida which sounds like joesonghamnida) and "미안합니다" (mianhabnida); both meaning "I'm sorry." (The former being more formal.)

Hope you're savoring these last days of summer!!


  1. ooo somebody's learning korean how fun :)

    love the light in the first pic of the two

  2. MSF by candlelight is sooooo pretty. I love it.

  3. nice haul! love the nailcolor. i'm a sucker for flat pinks/corals. hope you've been well! xo

  4. Ohhhh pretty new camera!!! I'm due for a new one soon too and I also LOVE Canons! (My current one is an old SD750). Canon does macro sooooo well! :D

    & great haul! Love your anecdote about the Emporer's New Groove - I don't really remember anything from the film except enjoying it lol.

    I think, the best FOTD pictures I've taken with my Canon are actually on auto mode with the flash off and macro on, NEXT to a window in indirect sunlight (versus directly in front of the window in the sun). HTH!

  5. im usually a lurker >.< but i just wanted to say how admirable it is that you're learning a new language...i want to learn a bunch of languages, but have failed thus far to start anything *sigh* -.-
    한국어를 열심히 배워서 지금보다도 더 잘 읽고 쓰고 말하길 바래요~~ 화이팅!! :)

  6. I have the exact same camera too! Except that mine is called Ixus 130 :D.
    Woot, lucky you to finally get the Stereo Rose and Jazzed, they are really pretty :)

  7. Nice Camera....and Lucky you....u got the jazzed & stereo rose....omygosh!!you're learning korean...aja!!!

  8. Heeeey Jazzed is so pretty on you!!! I bought it recently and it finally arrived. Looked too oompa loompa on me :[ Maybe I should just wear less. Who knows.

    Thanks for mentioning that about those Pa lashes. I've always wanted to try but really if they are that stiff..They don't sound too comfortable >.< I am sure it'd weigh down on your lid!

  9. I have that same camera also in black. I think Ria has the same camera too :)

    Great Haul! I love that Jazz cremesheen lippie! Everyone who got the Stereo Rose is lucky! It's such a pretty color and unfortunately, I wasn't able to get one :(

  10. i want a new cam too..but still can't justify getting a new one coz mine still works perfectly fine :) you are so nice to your sis :)

    nice lippie shade!

  11. nice camera LB! Canons are great for point & shoot - I have an SD870(?) and most of my FOTD shots are in auto mode on the macro setting, and taken with tungsten (for night shots) or cloudy (for day shots) to balance out the color.

    love all the stuff you bought - that's a great pink polish for summer :)

  12. Pretty lashes!

  13. I didn't know you're Korean! :x

    Oh yeah, I have the same false lashes and they are a B*TCH to put on. I ended up just giving up. I suck at putting falsies on...

    I like your bangs. They look very edgy. But I feel you...sometimes it's kinda awkward when you're trying to grow them out. But your hair looks so nice & healthy though! I would love to have your lush, long locks! :)

  14. Pretty pretty look! You got lucky getting those really sought after items =)

  15. Thanks for sharing, love your new camera :) the 2 blushes are very pretty too.

  16. Love the nails.

  17. you are absolutely glowing in your fotd pic ^_^ love the OPI pink nails too!
