Holiday Makeup

Hi,

So I wanted to share something with all of you that I had recently purchased. Its this mineral veil from Bare Minerals. The packaging was too cute not to share with all of you. This is limited edition for the holidays. They have this packaging for the mineral veil, which cost $36. Its a little bit more pricier than the normal mineral veil, but this one is a lot larger and could potentially last you a life time. They also have this packaging for the normal powder makeup, and the only thing that is different is that instead of the clear jewel in the middle, they have a red jewel. 2015-11-30 17.35.47

So recently, I have changed up my makeup routine to where I am not wearing liquid foundation anymore. Liquid foundation tends to wear off on my really quick and it doesn’t give me the coverage I need. So I have been using Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, which is a tint hydrating cream and it gives my face the color it needs. And then I top it off with the Bare Minerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum, which covers so amazing. This had been my foundation routine since the summer because I live in Utah and the heat here can get pretty crazy and the liquid foundation was just melting off of me. These two products have definitely been a life saver. For a while, I was just using these two product alone, but then a while back I found that I had some mineral veil left and it just made my makeup even better! It helped my face not be so oily, which is a huge problem for me. So this jumbo mineral veil was a bit of a splurge for me, but luckily I got it for pretty cheap.

Recently, I tried this new app called Raise and it allows you to buy gift cards for cheap because people don’t have a need for them anymore so I was lucky enough to get a Sephora gift card for cheap. If you use the code “kphan1”, you will get $5 off your purchase. Also if you use the code “Raise10”, you can save another $10 off a gift card. Like how awesome is that? Also, make sure you check out eBates.com, this site really does help you save money when your shopping online especially for purchases like this. When I purchase makeup items from Sephora, I tend to like shopping online better than actually in-store because you not only get cash back for it, but with you purchase you can get little kits of free samples, where they won’t give you in-store, which is a bummer to me, because I love free samples. So with my purchase I also got a little makeup bag full of samples that I can’t wait to try.

If you want to learn more about my money saving tips or how I get free gift cards, then please let me a comment below so I can do a post on thank.

Thanks for reading, and I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Being an Asian on a Diet

First of all, being on a diet is difficult in the first place, but being Asian makes it even more difficult. Literally every meal you have consists of carbs. Weather its white rice or some sort of noodle dish. It is so hard to get rid of rice and noodles in your every day meal especially when you have grown up with it your entire life. I mean can you say no to a bowl of Pho??? Ya I don’t think so. I can literally exercise as much as I want, but I will still have white rice haunting over me. LOL.

Recently, what I have discovered to be amazing is quinoa. If non of you know what quinoa is, it is a grain that has a similar texture to rice, but is better for you. So what I started doing was replacing white rice in all of my meals with quinoa. I am not too sure if this will help me in my weight loss goal, but it is sure worth the effort. Why do carbs have to be soo good. Now I just have to learn how to cut out all of the junk food like Pizza, cake, ice cream and soda, which shouldn’t be too hard but sometimes you just have those urges. Have you ever felt the thirst for a soda and then when you take a drink you feel that sweet goodness going down your chest? If you do let me know, so I know that I am not the only strange one. Well enough of me rambling. Thanks for reading.

When You’ve Had Enough

Hi,

Sorry I haven’t been posting as much as I would like, but this semester I started graduate school and it has been exhausting. This whole semester I’ve just been thinking everyday “WHY DID I DO THIS?”. I know that in the end having my master’s degree will be a great benefit for my career, but I have been going to school non-stop and I feel like i’m at the point where I’m just done and I want to work. There’s so much more to life than having to worry about taking tests and studying every single day. Before I use to think school was so important, but don’t get me wrong school is important, but if you already have a degree than you should be fine. Everyday I do homework hours at a time and I always think that there is so much more stuff that I could be doing with my time. Life is meant to be lived, its not meant to sit in a room with your face in a book. Not only is school exhausting, but its also so difficult too. I’m getting to the point where I feel hopeless and lost.

I know these aren’t usually the typically things I post about, but I wanted to take some time and just went out my stress. Does anyone out there going through the same thing that I am going through? If you are I would love to hear how you are getting through this. Well I would write more, but I have a group meeting for school. This group sucks BTW. LOL.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.

XOXO
