Me and Chelsea, otherwise known as @closetoreal ;]
I dont blog much, because frankly I dont have very much to share LOL and I dont take many pictures and I want you guys to have something to look at. Also I've been really busy with work, but my work just ended (its seasonal, and I work at a non-profit so they cant afford to staff me all the time) so now I have more time to upload/record until I go back to school :) let me tell you guys...blogging is def. a labor of love haha!
So if you guys watch my vids, then you know I went to FAP 2.0 a few weekends ago. FAP stands for Feature Accoustic Playlist, it was a benefit concert held in San Diego, Ca supporting the children's hunger fund and was thrown by youtubers and BTV fam. Since a lot of people flew in from out of the state and even out of the country, there was a bonfire the day before at the beach for everyone to hang out, be relaxed and get to know each other a bit before the actual event.
me and the #1 co-host! Phil Chao LOL
And then the next day. Kevin and Jason were kind enough to take me since my house is kinndaaa on the way :) Kevin and Jason both do covers on youtube, theyre amazingly talented. If you guys wanna see some of their work ill leave links below of some of their covers =] Its so humbling to be constantly surrounded by so much talent.
Look at Kevins phone o_o! Ive never seen this before o_o
Story of your life. LOL
Chao sandwhich :awkward:
More subbaayysss :DDDD x333
And awkward side twisted hip action
And I just felt weird not having a Peter Chao photo.
Tim de la gheetttoo..Hes so tiny. Like 5'4! LOL
Bart :D From JK films
Even more *cries* :D x3
Joseph Vincent =] haha to be honest I didnt know any of the artists, I never really watched covers on youtube before. But he's crazy talented, his cover of replay landed him a spot on Ellen Degeneres. If you guys don't know who he is, watch his cover of Iyaz's "replay" here and subscribe to him! So he can charm you away lol

And to watch Jason's cover of Rihanna/J. Rice's mashup "love the way you lie" click here
Then we all had dinner at Min Sok Chon. Its like a small korean drinking place in SD all the kids go to underage drink in High school and stuff like that. Haha but we were all famished so we just ate. There were people karoke-ing in the other room, and I have to say-it was the first time I head karaoke and didnt wanna kill myself LOL. [All the artists that performed were in there...and uhh yea if you didnt like making a fool of yourself singing already, try doing that next to passion. YUP not gunna happen]
Because he was my dinner buddy. LOL Joe :]
One last final pic =] with errrrbody. L-R Chelsea, Davin, Dan, Bart, Me, Jason, Kevin, Joe, Phil, Ernie
And next...now that i'm not working I have lots of time to do my two favorite things: Shop and eat! LOL i'm obsessed with Asian candies, and just wanted to show you guys what I've been munching on lately
Japanese Hard watermelon candies! Theyre flavored like normal watermelon, yellow watermelon and some weird hybrid one haha I really like it :) Very light tasting, im not big in to anything creamy because sometimes it makes me nauseous x.X I love light refreshing candies
Korean Hard Plum Candies! These are some of my favoriteee asian candies. They're shaped like little balls and taste like a sweet plum asian jolly rancher LOL. They even have a cute pink stripe on them! Best of all, they're 99 cents a bag- my cheap asian side can't resist. You can buy these at any zion and im sure other korean markets would have them as well.
Green Tea Japanese Marshmellows :) Didnt taste as good as I wanted them to though, the green tea flavor was really mellow, but the marshmellows were really soft. Dont think i'd buy em again, the whole marshmellow with soft jelly inside definetly works better with fruit flavors LOL (They have these strawberry hello kitty ones that are amazing).
My free iphone 4 case came in :) Prior to it coming, I really wasnt a fan of the iphone. IDK...it just was okay. But this case is SO nice...it fits so nicely :] much better than iphone3 cases! Apple had an app to order it too [and you could pick which you wanted] which I thought was pretty cool haha. And when I heard they were giving out free cases, I thought they'd be some cheap made in china ish, but its an incase (I remember paying about 30 for my case for my old phone?) But now I love it! Seemed liked the finishing touch Idk but I finally fully enjoy my phone now. You cant even see the case yea? Super nice, I think mine was in 'smoke' but there was about 7 diff options and the app let you see the cases that were available from different angles as well. Took me about 6 weeks to get it though x.X buts its free and beggers cant be choosers
Oh and also, im still freakin obsessed with that ELF gloss 'bubblegum' from their back to school collection. Never ever have I loved a drugstore product, in fact the only ones I've ever tried were the loreal lineur intense, and my friends hard candy blush (and elf blotting tissues but thats not m/u haha) but I tweeted this photo right after I opened it
Its the prettiest baby milky pink (its not as pink as it showed up in this picture). Its sheer with one coat, but gob it on (2 layers) and its totally opaque. I think I have like 8 or something right now-I went back and bought every single one! HAHA im kinda sad that the first drugstore product I ever loved is just temporary (so try it if you havent!) but it definitely kinda makes me optimistic about DS makeup in the future. Im seriously sad that they aren't keeping this around though *shakes fist at ELF* you guys are dumb! keep it...seriously :[ please? But in the meantime...at 1 dollar each, I dont mind stocking up :)
For those of you that don't follow me on my FB page (yes..i finally did it x.x haha) then heres some swatches I did. Left is bubblegum andis Nars' Turkish Delight-the cult favorite! But for most people, turkish delight is unwearable by itself and usually worn over another lip color-bubblegum is the first of ANY gloss i used that I LOVED wearing with just eyeliner and blush (in the above pic). The only time I wear lip products is to balance out heavier makeup, but this was the first time I ever felt it looked pretty by itself. Obsessed. Literally.
For a more accurate idea of the color, im wearing it in [ this ] video where I gush and gush about it
Okay so thats all for now ^_____^
Sorry Ive been lagging on the one year giveaway, itll be up this week-promise =]!
PS. and one more thing, I got this Dolce&Gabbana necklace the other day online because it was on sale, but upon receiving it in the mail I kinda realized the stones were bigger than I was expecting and im more in to tiny jewelry, so I figured id post it on here and see if anyone was interested
Its a D&G necklace on a black suede ribbon that you tie, I have to use a stock photo because I didnt even open it from the packaging because I knew right away it was a bit too big for my liking. So if youre interested please leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
