Mailbox love!

Yesterday evening I received some happy mail from Manju and Chels.
I was beyond happy!
This is my first time receiving mail from any of my blog buddies!
As it turns out, I am having pretty rotten luck with my swap partners.
I don't mean to vent or anything but if you have made a comitment to send something to someone, you should probably do it.
Anyways,
I am just really grateful and lucky to know these two sweethearts!

A thank you card from Chels for the surprise Valentine I sent her.
I didn't really expect it at all!

All the goodies that Manju sent me!
She sent me some colour pencils because she remembered this post of mine.
And yes, I did smell them!
;)

Seriously,
how could you not love these girls?
♥♥♥



p/s: happy mail is like crack! Once you get a taste of it you keep wanting more!

p/p/s: Enjoy your weekend loves!

Obsessed

Hey guys,
how has the start of the week treating you so far?
For me, not so great.
Yesterday the car troubles and today it's my glasses.
So I got a new pair of glasses made a few weeks ago and I redid all the eye tests for it.
At that time it seemed as if my power had reduced and I was all happy and chirpy about it.
After picking up my glasses last Friday,
my bubble promptly burst.
I had been having massive migraine like headaches and it wasn't getting any better.
So I went to the optometrist again today and discovered that my power for the lens never changed in the first place.
So I have to wait a few more days (I hope) to get my new pair of glasses.
I love the new frames by the way!!
Maroon in colour and very snazzy, I do say so myself!


Since I was feeling all rotten, dizzy and nauseous after the eye tests today,
I decided to buy myself a lil' something to make me happier.
And then I stumbled across these lil' babies and I was sold!
Lip gloss in cupcake containers!
How cute is that right?


I showed these to my middle brother, at first he smelled it and then suddenly he swiped his finger on it and tasted it.
I was looking at him horrified,
his explanation was 'it smelled so good I wondered if it would taste like it too'
(my brother is 28 years old!).
My response,
'I have your finger print now, I could frame you for murder!'


Once I reached home I then realised that I have a new obsession:
LIP BALMS/GLOSS!
These are the ones I have bought in less than four months.
The orange one (which is from BodyShop) I haven't even opened!
I am addicted!
I even wear lip balm when I am about to go to bed.
It has really become a habit!

Are you as addicted to them as I am?
Or do I need help?!

Jump

I do the darn-est things sometimes.
Today I left the car headlights on while I was in class.
For a whole three hours (++).
I couldn't start the car at all.
Luckily there was a man who happened to have the jumper cables to recharge the battery.
My lecturer and friend were there the whole time, kind of like chaperoning!
And we used my friends car battery to charge up mine.
It was so so embarrassing!
Such an amateur mistake,
in front of my lecturer no less.
Thank God he is actually quite cool.
Well, he laughed at me and that was about it.
Thanks to the man with the cable.
If not for him I would be in a whole lot of trouble!
I wasn't even driving my own car, it was actually my brothers family car which is like a minivan(something like that).
THANK YOU MAN WITH CABLE!!
♥♥♥

Maybe I should rethink this whole driving myself to school ey?

Presents

Today I feel like I would really like to own a moleskine notebook with a box of colour pencils.
I have this strange and intense want to smell a box of colour pencils;
I have no idea why.
Anyways, anyone feeling overly generous (or if generosity is part of your new years resolution),
feel free to send these two things my way!
It would be a great Valentine's present too, for all you boys/men who are clueless as to what to give to your girl/women.
But just remember to make it personal by writing your thoughts in the first page,
it would make the gift all the much sweeter.

Thank You


Dear Blogger Buddies,
thank you so much for all the compliments on the last post.
Seriously, thank you guys so so much!
I am not a professional, neither am I a photography student.
But how I wish I was.
To enter in any photography class or course you need a DSLR camera,
and I can't afford to get myself one.
I know you asked how I manage to take pics like these:
it's actually all in the lighting.
The brighter it is the better.
Which is why I don't take any pics when it's dark.
Well, that is my only tip.
Other than that I take pics whenever I feel like it or when I find something interesting to snap.
Look at me, pretending to be all professional sounding!
Anyways,
thanks again for all the compliments.
I'll be posting more pics soon-ish!

Love you guys!
♥♥♥

Randoms

So ever since I posted this post,
every time I open the Yahoo! homepage I stumble across articles like this.
It's unnerving me a bit!

I just helped my brother plan a Valentine's Day surprise for his wife.
Only hope that he goes through with it though!

Anyways I hope you all (who entered) love the Vday cards I sent out.
Let me know when you receive it yeah.
♥♥♥


p/s: happy weekend
=)

Instead

I should be focusing on my assignment and presentation,
but instead I am doing this!




By the way,
Danny is such a vain pot!
He kept wanting to take more pictures.
Oh, and he got a hair cut.
He looks really cheeky, no?
;)

Bomb

This is what I did to my presentation today.
I totally bombed it and not in a good way I might add.
I seriously have no clue why I did what I did.
But if I want to get good grades for this class, I really really need to buck up and do my next presentation (which is next week) really well.
I also need to prepare a 2000 word write up for it.
I can do it!
Now all I have to do is FOCUS...
...and that's the tricky part...
