Happy New Year!

I wanted to wish all my lovely followers a Happy New Year and I hope 2011 brings you happiness, joy and lots of opportunities!

I know I know, you’re probably sick reading these kinda posts but I want to put my resolutions down in black n white this year so I absolutely, definitely, positively must stick to them! So here goes…

I will take more pictures. I come from a really big family and have 3 brothers and 2 sisters yet I think it’s been about 5 years since we took a pic of everyone together!

I’m gonna stop worrying about my weight and just eat what I want. I’m sick counting calories and worrying that I wont be able to squeeze into my favourite dress. If necessary I’ll just buy the same dress in a bigger size :)

I’m gonna spend less and give more. I hardly ever give to charity these days so instead of buying stuff I don’t particularly need I’m gonna save the cash throughout the year and give it to a worthy cause

I’ll learn to drive

I shall run the Belfast marathon. I used to run a lot but I’ve gotten lazy over the last while so this will be a hard one but I know I will be able to do it if I put in enough time and effort. I’ll donate the funds to charity

I’m gonna take up a new (creative) hobby. Havent decided on one yet but I’m thinking something like origami or knitting might be good

I’m gonna read more. I seem to read nothing but trash at the min so I’m going to pick up a few classics that I’ve been meaning to get for ages and will actually go to bed half an hour earlier to ensure I have time to do some reading every day!

I guess that’s all… seems like LOADS but I think a lot of them are things I should be doing anyway! How about you? Made any resolutions this year? Do you ever stick to them or are you like me and have often given up by the 3rd of Jan? ♥

Joy xx

Soap & Glory - Glad Hair Day

Don’t you just love when you have really low expectations for a new product but it turns out to be completely awesome?!

My secret santa at work was my best friend and house mate so he got me a ton of Soap & Glory stuff! I was sooo pleased because I’ve started to really enjoy their products and I had run out of almost everything – I love my Scrub Actually so much that I will always cut the bottle in half to scrape out every last drop!

I wasn’t really looking forward to trying the Glad Hair Day shampoo or conditioner because I’d tried the Hair Supply conditioner in the past and it’s crap…

Possibly one of my least favourite conditoners ever...

So I was pleasantly surprised when I used my new hair goodies on boxing day because my hair felt clean, soft, smooth and it even had that distinctive Soap& Glory smell (MMMmmmmMmm) I’ve used them 3 times since then and love them more every time I do :)

One of the most annoying things about shampoo/conditioner combos is that a lot of them leave a build up over time and it always makes me feel the need to change what I use every month or so. Glad Hair Day claims to have a no build up formula so in theory I should be able to use this forever without feeling the need to switch. I kinda doubt that but shall let you know ♥

Oh I nearly forgot to mention the price! These are just over a fiver each for 250ml bottles. Far from bargain products but not exactly expensive either

some makeup, and #reverb10, December 16 - 18

So a little while ago, I bought some Revlon Just Bitten lip stain and a white-silver Revlon eyeliner.

The eyeliner's not bad at all, but it made me realize that the kind of gold eyeliner I need for Chanel S/S '07 eyes needs to be yellow-gold, not dirty-gold. As for the lip stain, I thought it was awesome at first, because the color didn't budge at all, not even on a stick of white lip balm after several bowls of soup, and the color was excellent and potentially both vampy and childishly lollipop-bright.

Then I tried it a second time, but I had to use makeup remover to get the application even, which is gross, and then my lips started burning and part of my lower lip got swollen, so I decided to keep it only for the balm end (which is really nice, by the way).

[EDIT: For my own clarification, my lips actually started burning when I put the lip stain on, so I tried to take it off with makeup remover. So it wasn't the makeup remover that made my lip swell up.]

So I gave up on lip stain.

To make up (makeup!) for my newfound inability to wear that deceitfully promising form of lip color, and because I was feeling very 90s, I bought the cheapest brown lipstick I could find, Wet 'n' Wild's 506B:

And then I looked like this:

And I declared myself sufficiently 90s.

Some more late #reverb10 prompts after the jump.


PROMPT FOR DECEMBER 16, 2010: Friendship. How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?

I’ve always known that friendship based on shared interests is way easier than friendship based on proximity or convenience, which is why in eighth grade, I started alienating myself from my circle of boy- and makeup-obsessed friends of five years and feeling my way into a group of nerdy self-identified otaku, musical-watchers, sci-fi novel readers, and personal website builders.

And which is why I understand how that handful of my friends who rabidly share my current interest in linguistics, fashion, style, blogging, and life beyond academic success came to be people I want to clutch close to my heart.

And which is why I have a couple of friends who completely bewilder me, because if you asked what our shared interests are, I couldn’t tell you.

So I guess what my friends have changed for me this year is my view of what friendship is supposed to be. Maybe there isn’t a “supposed to be” and there is only an “is.” Maybe it’s okay that the people I spend the most clock time with aren’t the same people I spend the most time mentally wishing well and being excited to see and whose opinions I solicit. Maybe it’s okay that friendship changes, because people change, and maybe it’s okay that life happens and falls through our fingers to reunite with the rest of the beach and be washed away with the tide, and maybe, as with everything else in life, letting go of things you cannot help anymore is better than holding on.
Love is something if you give it away, give it away, give it away –
Love is something if you give it away, you’ll end up having more.
It’s just like a magic penny,
Hold it tight and you won’t have any.
Lend it, spend it, and you’ll have so many they’ll roll all over the floor.
Love is something if you give it away, give it away, give it away –
Love is something if you give it away, you’ll end up having more.
---------------------

PROMPT FOR DECEMBER 17, 2010: Lesson Learned. What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward?

Someone I once asked for advice told me that the only question I really need to ask myself about art is whether it is necessary. This year, I’ve learned that it isn’t. Of course it isn’t necessary; that’s too dramatic. Oxygen is necessary. Water and some kind of caloric intake are necessary. Shelter is usually necessary. Even some kind of social interaction is necessary, but art is not necessary.

I’ve learned that I can live without art, but I feel half-alive when I am not creating something. I’ve learned that when I’m not creating something myself, with my own hands (or metaphorical hands), I fill my mind and life with trash, with things that are easy to digest but don’t stick, the kind of things that pass through your system and give you no energy, the kind of things that aren’t sustenance, the kind of things you don’t have to chew on and break down. And that makes me apathetic and lethargic and gray.

I’ve learned that this means I should trust my gut feelings on most things, especially Big Decisions That Affect My Present And Future Happiness, Because I Understand The World And Value Certain Parts Of It One Way, And No Matter How Many Different People I Approach Seeking Advice, All I Am Really Looking For Is Someone To Confirm What I Already Think, And None Of Them Share My Story Or Worldview, So I Might As Well Figure Out What I Already Think And Act On It Instead of Waiting For Other People To Reaffirm My Suspicions.

Art isn’t necessary, but it is ideal, and what is living worth if I can only have the necessary? I might as well be dead; it’s the same amount of pain.

Never again, not by choice.

---------------------

PROMPT FOR DECEMBER 18, 2010: Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it?

In 2010, I wanted to have a tiny wardrobe at school. (Frivolity for the win!) I never did achieve closet enlightenment, and I’m not precisely sure why. School and life got in the way, I suppose. I did manage to sort through my clothes and remove a lot of items that were too small or too tight, so at least I culled some of my useless pieces.

Anyway, as a result of not reducing my wardrobe to two weeks’ worth of items, I noticed that certain items of clothing go under heavy rotation, regardless of whether I’m putting time and effort into my outfits or not, and they’re not always the things I expect. I also noticed that some things never go into regular rotation, and that I always go for certain colors to start off an outfit, namely gray, black, and white. My other neutrals are oatmeal/brown, light/dark blue, and light/dark pink. I use green, violet, and royal blue as accent colors. I don’t wear red, orange, or yellow. I almost never wear accessories, especially not necklaces, bracelets, or hats. I actually don’t like printed tights, nor do I like wearing lace or sheer anything. I sometimes wear scarves and rings. I use socks as accessories a lot, and I usually base my outfits around overall color schemes or prints. Plaid, floral, and novelty prints are very prominent in my wardrobe. Stripes, polka dots, and animal prints are not. Lipstick counts as an accessory.

I guess it took all of 2010 to solidify what I want out of my wardrobe. It’s starting to look like the only way to get that is by creating a uniform, or a uniform-with-variations, based around a few compatible colors/prints and a few cuts/shapes/pieces. It’s kind of exciting, actually, this whole simplification thing.

So maybe spring semester will see the unveiling of my new school uniform.

miniature photo dump and #reverb10, December 13 - 15

One time, my roommate canned tomatoes. I was like, "How Berkeley can you get?" She shot me a look over her bowl of organic yogurt and granola, picked up her mason jar, and sipped her tap water superciliously. I responded by pushing my glasses up my nose and staging a protest by sitting on our plants and refusing to eat.

A couple of her tomatoes were deformed (not a euphemism). We staged a scene.

We also found a worm friend in our leafy greens.

One time I took this many bobby pins out of my hair in one go, and then I remembered that time I couldn't get past the TSA metal detectors because the pins in my hair kept setting them off.

Our stain remover is totally awesome. Like going back to Hogwarts after summer holidays.

Our apartment had a pre-Thanksgiving dinner, which consisted of butternut squash soup, salmon, dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole. It was delicious, like the plums in the icebox.

Our method for photographing all of us with the food was quite innovative. Also dangerous.

Some #reverb10 prompts after the jump.


PROMPT FOR DECEMBER 13, 2010: Action. When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step?
  1. Finish these #reverb10 prompts, even if they’re late. Once these are over, go back to Write One Leaf prompts, and if I get bored of those, work on scripts. Any kind of scripts, because I know I’m going to get sick of straight-up prose fairly soon.

  2. Finish the script for the video post I have been planning. (Filming it will be a later endeavor, but I think I need to rework what I have right now because of location constraints.)

  3. Leave 10 (sincere) blog comments. (Really, this should be an everyday thing, but I don’t feel comfortable commenting for the sake of commenting (even if they’re sincere and thought-out comments) unless I have something interesting to offer in return for someone’s traffic.)

  4. Find a new place to take outfit photos. Not sure how this is going to work because I don’t want to take photos indoors, but I also don’t want to carry a tripod around and take outfit photos alone. Also not sure if I really want to do this because my blog is meant to be “daily wear” and not “editorial-status” outfits. Anyway, I’ll keep my eyes peeled for something better than the blank wall in the living room.

  5. Ask around so I can see if starting an interview series aimed at college students (aka aimed at 18-year-old me) is feasible or not. (But first refine my draft interview questions because they’re a little sterile.)

  6. Write some of those posts I have sitting around at various stages of completion. (Yes, the ones in draft.doc. I'll find my relevant videos and links and pictures and my wording of choice and just post the damn things.)
---------------------

PROMPT FOR DECEMBER 14, 2010: Appreciate. What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it?

Change. I like change. Especially little changes, like a new nail polish color or an unpronounceable Middle Eastern dish or taking a different route to class. Change is refreshing. Change can get tiring, though, especially big changes, or constant changes, which is when routine starts to look inviting. Most of the time, I am afraid of change, because things are usually going pretty well as they are, and I like being anchored to something, and change guarantees nothing. Change has no one-year warranty, it won’t go with everything in your wardrobe, and it doesn’t care if you are trying your hardest to swim against it.

This year, I was reminded that change shakes everything up. (It shakes up Christmas.) Some changes are easier to go along with than to resist. Sometimes you cling to change because the Right Now is so bad that any change is good. Sometimes you fight change, but change wins because change is bigger than you and you don’t have a slingshot. But most of the time, change washes over you, creeps in on you. You breathe in change, even though you can’t see it, and it passes through your alveoli into your bloodstream and pretty soon every cell of your body is changedchangedCHANGED.

Change can be sweet and exciting and uplifting, but most of the time it also hurts. Changing bandages hurts, because your skin and scabs get stuck to the gauze, and when you rip it off, you have to bleed again before you can breathe again and heal completely.

Change is a funny companion, but like death, you can meet it with fear or with respect.

---------------------

PROMPT FOR DECEMBER 15, 2010: 5 Minutes. Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.

Dear Sam,

In 2010 you legitimately tried to see if you could get a computer science degree, because people whose opinions you valued wanted you to do it, and you were afraid of what would happen if you didn’t, and if you didn’t try it, whether or not it would be a waste of potential. You failed, but it was pretty awesome, because you met this dirty blond girl named Stephanie who was your lab partner and probably the first person at Cal you met and wanted to be friends with for no reason other than that she was interesting and cool, not out of necessity or proximity.

After a spring semester of computer science prereq/prep-type classes, you did summer school. It was even more awesome but sucked a lot, and you spent a lot of time crying. You finished anyway, because the staff and your classmates were wonderful. Full of wonder. Instilling wonder in you. And you kind of liked it, you know.

Then you tried to continue in the fall, even though the thought of it made you kind of sick and itchy and vomity, and then you stopped because you were crying too much and the rest of your life got put on the back burner and you did not like it at all.

In 2010 you started writing again, which you liked a lot. It was healing at first. Then you remembered that it was fun. You also made some money from blogging. Yay SEO! Also this 12-year-old (now 13) named Isabella started an email correspondence with you, and it was a lot of fun and you hope it will continue to be.

ALSO YOU HAVE THIRTY SECONDS LEFT AND YOU FEEL YOUR SOCIAL CIRCLE SHIFTING DRASTICALLY AND YOU THOUGHT ABOUT DEATH A LOT ESPECIALLY WITHIN YOUR FAMILY BUT FELT OKAY ABOUT IT, AND NOT EVEN IN THE LEAVE-ME-ALONE-I’M-FINE WAY, BUT IN AN ENLIGHTENED NIRVANA WAY TIME’S UP

My favourite MAC product

Happy Wednesday all! Hope you’ve had a nice week so far

I wanted to thank everyone for commenting on my “pre-owned makeup” post. I was really surprised (and delighted!) by the positive responses so I’ll be snapping away and posting pics of some stuff asap. Haven’t decided on all the details yet but it should be fairly straightforward :)

On another note I wanted to mention a lip gloss that I absolutely adore because I don’t think I’ve actually done a post specifically about a MAC product before. To be honest I’m not a big MAC fan *le gasp!* I know there are people who totally worship the whole range (not to mention all the limited edition collections) but I just think a lot of it is hyped up and overrated

It’s not that I dislike all the stuff of course; I just think there are a lot of drugstore brands that do the same job for less than half the price. When it comes to makeup if I’m gonna be spending 3 hours wages on a single item then I expect some seriously good results

Dazzleglass in Rags to Riches

One of the MAC items that definitely delivers is the Dazzleglass. I think this is one of the best glosses around and I love almost everything about it. It smells lovely, feels smooth but not oily and although it’s sticky it’s not uncomfortably so

This gloss looks beautiful on; it’s a bit OTT because the teensy shimmery glitter particles catch the light brilliantly so the end result is glittertastic (or dazzly if you will) and it leaves my lips looking shiny and full. It even comes in a massive range of shades so you’re almost guaranteed to find one that suits you – I’m pretty dull when it comes to gloss and generally opt for a pretty pale pink colour

Oh oh oh did I mention that it lasts ages too? Always a bonus if you ask me cos I’m not a big fan of reapplying makup throughout the day

My only complaint is the applicator because it’s a brush. I guess we all end up liking what we’re used to so when it comes to lip gloss I’m always disappointed if the applicator isn’t just a standard wand. This still works perfectly well but I definitely think gloss is more difficult to apply with a brush

Anyone else tried this? Would you consider yourself a big fan of all things MAC? ♥

a catch-up post: stuff i bought and #reverb10, December 9 - 12

Holy crap. Here's stuff I bought ages ago. For my mom's birthday, caramel apples from DaisyandDelilah:

To be honest, the caramel was hard instead of tacky like I was expecting, so it was kind of a disappointment. However, the service was good, and there were 4 different apples: regular caramel, caramel with peanuts, bourbon caramel, and dark chocolate with sea salt. I couldn't say no.

Two dresses from Target, because they were on clearance. I was really surprised there were so many left. Why wouldn't you buy these?

Generic functional underwear (I am really proud of myself, you guys) from macy's, two longsleeve tees from Target, and two pairs of socks from Target.

Above, Dr. Bronner's lip balm from Target. Neutrogena lip balm and gloss-thing from Walgreen's. (I like greasy lip balm, okay?) And an e.l.f. eyeliner. (The pewter's not that vivid, but it's beautiful how soft it is, and the built-in sharpener is perfect.)

Some very late #reverb10 prompts after the jump.



PROMPT FOR DECEMBER 9, 2010: Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.

The one where I am betrayed by someone I trusted with my life. (The one where I find out that my tutor wasn’t actually going to have dinner with my TA, which means that my tutor lied in an attempt to get me to spend time with him, so it’s a really good thing I didn’t say yes to join him.)

The one where I use my Krav Maga skills to fend off a would-be sexual predator. (The one where some dude named Adam touches my leg too much while I sit on Memorial Glade not playing Frisbee, and I attempt to talk about castrating bulls to suggest that maybe I don’t like his wandering hands.)

The one where we learn how to joust. (The one where we flip chopsticks around our fingers without poking each other’s eyes out. Or in.)

The one where a cute French boy asks if I want to go up to see his room. (The one where a cute French boy lets us extend our class get-together into the wee hours of the morning by inviting us all over to his dorm, which happens to be the one where I lived my freshman year.)

The one where Lady Gaga serenades me with an acoustic rendition of “Monster.” (The one where I listen to someone who can play by ear play that song from Amélie while listening to it, with only about ten seconds’ delay.)

The one where my pride comes crashing down like a game of Jenga. (The one where my team gets owned in Pictionary and I am told to suck it.)

The one where I am accused of being a homewrecker. (The one where I am accused of making puppy dog eyes at my lecturer. For the record, I was. I wanted to play Pictionary.)

The one where I manage not to vomit after winning a statewide donut-eating contest. (The one where I want to throw up after eating King Pin donut holes at 2 AM.)

The one where I betray my country. (The one where my facial expressions make it too obvious that both my TA and lab partner have wandered off into the dark together and stopped answering their phones.)

---------------------

PROMPT FOR DECEMBER 10, 2010: Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out?

I think this is cheating.

In January, I dropped money on my first pair of leather boots and confidently wore the shit out of them, knowing that they wouldn't fall apart.

In February, I started Write One Leaf as a pet project without anticipating that it would be such an important personal endeavor.

In March, I performed some symbolic actions to represent my decision to jump off my metaphorical cliff and prepare to fail summer classes for a major I was hesitant about.

In April, I tried pin curls and felt okay about how I looked for the first time in the nine or so months since I started growing out my pixie cut.

In May, I deleted my Facebook account.

In June, I chose my computer science login to be "bj" because it was memorable, like I hoped I would be.

In July, I chose to finish my summer classes instead of running away from them just because I didn't like the feeling of failure.

In August, I decided to accept failing on a regular basis and continue doing computer science in the fall.

In September, I skipped sleep and a shower so I could see Sunshine, Aaron, and Victoria. Some people are like coffee, the way they leave you energized but heading for a crash. But those three are like... like hot chocolate.

In October, I decided to stop doing computer science.

In November, I started Write One Leaf again.

In December, I decided to stop spending my energy on things I don't really care about.

---------------------

NOTE: Awkwardly enough, I wrote two responses for this prompt because I forgot I had saved the first one somewhere. Here's the second response. Sorry.

---------------------

In 2010, I threw myself off the edge of a few cliffs, with the confidence that either there would be something to catch me or I would grow wings on the way down.

I tentatively embraced computer science for ten months before it became clear to both parties involved that the promise of financial stability is a poor foundation for relationship compatibility, even if we liked each other a lot. Like is not love, and being unwilling to slog through the hard times together is not love, and crying yourself to sleep thinking you aren’t good enough is not love, and neither is being lonely in a room full of friends or knowing what your future together looks like and panicking. I jumped from my nest of cozy, coast-y academic success and plummeted into an abyss of apathy and tears, which made me hesitate to call this The Right Decision. Nothing caught me on the way down, though a few people tried, and for that I am grateful. But I didn’t grow wings either. I am pretty sure this is because it was Not How The Good Lord Intended For Me To Go, but I’m glad to have tried it. And now I know.

I started writing earnestly ten months ago, something I hadn’t done in years, like a wound I had smothered in bandages and was letting breathe again. I can’t tell if I’m good enough. I must not be, because nobody’s copied or criticized me yet. But I like to think that I am growing wings on the way down, and as soon as I decide what enormous, ambitious project to start, I will know if I can fly.

And I let go of computer science and decided to go forth and be screwed with a linguistics degree. I doubt anyone will catch me this time. I doubt anyone will even try, so I am building my wings on the way down because I trust my mind more than I trust my body to erupt into feathers.

That reminds me – I need to watch Black Swan.

---------------------

PROMPT FOR DECEMBER 11, 2010: 11 Things. What are 11 things your life doesn't need in 2011? How will you go about eliminating them? How will getting rid of these 11 things change your life?
  1. Being a chronic oversharer, in real life and online. Time to stop throwing up on people and the internet. My personal diary looks pretty forlorn these days, so I’ll squirrel things away in there instead and keep those for myself.

  2. Fear of failure. My solution: fake it. And remember that I’m going to die, and so will everyone I love.

  3. Having a maximalist wardrobe, full of clothes I don’t like, clothes that don’t fit, clothes that can only be worn one way, and clothes I can’t figure out how to wear. I’ll throw anything with nice enough fabric into my to-be-fixed/sewing-failures pile to work on my hand-sewing and altering skills. Everything else gets donated. My general intention is for my 2011 wardrobe to consist of utilitarian items of neutral clothing, with punchy accent colors (jewel tones!) and excessories.

  4. Increasing my wardrobe with fake investment items, dry-clean only clothes, uncomfortable functionless underwear (I understand that most functionless underwear is not meant to be worn for long, but COME ON, if wearing it under a regular outfit is supposed to be my little secret, it could at least not ride up and necessitate public wedgie picking), and All The Cool Kids AKA Bloggers Are Doing It items (aka clogs and any other remotely impractical shoes). On that note, CAN ADD: White Doc Martens (the half-calf kind, perhaps with hot pink laces) for stomping around, knee high socks (I don’t think I will ever be fully comfortable in thigh highs), t-shirts (yes, seriously), and vintage costume jewelry (and things of that ilk).

  5. Unstructured internet surfing time. I’ll structure it. Frankly, I don’t need to read any more advice on how to please my nonexistent man, or how to make him my bitch, or how to meet his parents. I don’t want to watch any more cat videos or see any more innovative business card designs because I am not a cat person or a graphic designer. I am cutting the stuff I don’t care about.

  6. Sitting on my butt, because chub is almost never fun, unless you’re that guy on Anoncon who posted about grabbing chub as a substitute for boobs if a girl has almost nothing to hold on to otherwise. And because all this sitting around is probably the reason for these mysterious chest pains and lightheadedness and heavy periods and migraines. I’m not sure how this is going to work, because I’m not a gym kind of person… Maybe vigorous housework and studying on campus. Ew, studying on campus. At least it would force me to haul myself out of the apartment.

  7. Comparing myself to others, in real life and online. Nobody I’ve encountered has the same story as mine, so it makes no sense to make comparisons. I’m declaring that it’s okay to use other people as benchmarks, and that structured competition is okay, but it is not okay to wonder why I’m not as successful as [superstar of choice].

  8. People I don’t want to spend time with/on/near/around, by practicing The Art of Radical Exclusion. Fewer entries on my expense sheet categorized as “eating out,” which indicates frivolous spending, in exchange for more that say “wellness,” for those people who leave me feeling more energized or thoughtful than when we met. I am cutting you out, naysayers and time-wasters and energy leeches.

  9. Off-day outfits. There is no such thing as an off-day to the casual observer. I refuse to allow such things to exist in my sartorial vocabulary, so anything I glom together should be practical and look cohesive. Possible solution: adopt a uniform.

  10. Going to bed after midnight, which I’ve been trying to remedy for a while, but life keeps getting in the way. I don’t think this is feasible until I have a regular class schedule, though, so I won’t push this until school starts. “Bed by 11, up by 7.”

  11. Awful hair. I’ve had awful hair for more than a year, and now I have mediocre hair. I think it’s time to step it up in 2011. I’m thinking color before anything else. And I’m thinking a Creatures of the Deep color scheme to break in my virgin hair.

PROMPT FOR DECEMBER 12, 2010: Body Integration. This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body? Did you have a moment where there wasn’t mind and body, but simply a cohesive YOU, alive and present?

I don’t have anything to say about this prompt, so perhaps you should read this one instead:


But that’s cheating, so here is what I want to say: I don’t think of my mind and body as separate. Especially not after that damned CogSci class that told me TIME IS AN ILLUSION and CAUSE AND EFFECT ARE AN ILLUSION and I AM JUST THE SUM OF NEURONS FIRING and GREAT METAPHORS ARE JUST EXTENSIONS OF OUR BODILY UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD, SO GREAT LITERATURE IS ALL IN YOUR HEAD.

Now would be an appropriate time to quote Dumbledore.

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?”

Have I used up enough words yet? Because this prompt sucks. I guess I am acutely aware of my body when I am doing things like inserting tampons, or suffering from a cold, or stepping into a hot shower and watching the grayness withdraw from my toes, but mind is body. (This is a one-way equation, because body is not mind, but mind sure as hell is just as physically-based as body.)

Actually, you know what? I can answer this prompt.

This year, I felt the most integrated with my body that time when I was alive. I did not have a moment where I was not mind and body and simply a cohesive ME, alive and present.

This is probably the worst prompt my mind and body, which are integrated, have come across yet.

Sanuki Udon @ Taman Bukit Desa

One weekend, we drove past Taman Bukit Desa, my Mr. requested to find a place nearby for our late dinner. We have ran out of ideas where to eat at that time. Luckily, My Mr. remembered Sanuki Udon which he had read from other food blogs, so we decided to give it a try. It was pretty easy to find this shop with a little help from google map. :)

A modest shop hidden in a peaceful residential area.
The shop has less than 15 tables here. The place easily gets very busy and packed and you might need to wait for your tables.

A glimpse of the shop.

Simple menu, we order 2 mains and add 2 toppings!

Some Japanese words, wish the owner translate them into English.

Shiitake Yakitori (mushroom and meat) - RM2 each stick
Both taste juicy and smells heavenly when it arrived at my table!

Kakiage (deep fried vegetables) - RM2
Crispy texture.

My Mr ordered a Curry udon - RM7

House Special hot Udon with egg - RM5

Simple, and light udon meal for me, but i must admit that the udon texture is so slurpilicious!! The springy noodles are made fresh daily that uses Australian wheat flour to give its chewy texture. You can also buy their udon and consume at home, RM15 at 1kg portion. Our bill came, only RM17!! Yummy food with reasonable price! I would definitely try the other 2 outlets, one in Wisma Cosway, and Marufuku Udon at Jaya One, Pj.

Giving away unwanted makeup?

I know this might seem like an odd question but how would you feel about using “pre-owned” makeup?

As part of a New Year resolution I’m planning on clearing out my makeup collection and I hate the thought of just chucking stuff that people might really enjoy using! It seems like such a waste and I thought giving the stuff away would be a nice thing to do instead of swapping it, you know? :)

I was thinking of giving away things I don’t use – it would all be stuff I don’t like, don’t use or just have too much of and I was just wondering if anyone would actually be interested before I take pics of things and actually start posting about it ♥

More Lush Goodies

Good evening all :) Hope you've had a nice day so far... I spent mine cleaning my bedroom and have thrown out soooo much stuff! I've decided to keep my house as neat and well organised as possible so after work tomorrow I shall be cleaning the kitchen from top to bottom. Not the most exciting way to spend the evening but needs must n all that!

Honey I Washed The Kids (£2.95 per 100g)

This is a honey and toffee scented soap with aloe vera. Now I should probably mention that I hate soap. By soap I mean the traditional bars that you had to use as a kid, the ones that don’t come in particularly nice packaging, never look very pretty and are a bit of a nightmare to store. They don’t appeal to me and although I try to be open minded I wasn’t expecting great things from this

What pleased me greatly is the quality of this soap… I found it so nice to use that I invested in a lovely little silver soap dish cos I’ve already bought my second bar. Who’d’ve thunk it, eh?

As with all Lush goodies the first thing that I noticed was the smell! I hadn’t even got it out of the little paper bag and knew I was onto a winner. It’s sweet and smells scrummy enough to eat. As for how it looks, well as far as I’m concerned it looks like any other bar of soap; bland, boring and er, dull :)

The texture is creamy and luxurious – makes me feel like I’m washing myself in something really sweet and natural like milk and honey. I generally use this all over after I’ve shaved and although it leaves my skin all nice n smooth it doesn’t leave behind a horrible residue which is always important!

The reason this stood out to me was because Adryen noticed that my skin felt softer. He’s a typical man in a lot of ways; I’ve had to point out that I had half my hair chopped off before he realised I looked a bit different, so the fact that he actually noticed that my skin felt softer spoke volumes about the quality of this soap

Would I buy this again? Already have

Whipstick Lip balm (£4.75 for 10g)

This is a chocolate-orange lip balm and I’m afraid I’ve found it to be completely average. The taste is ok, the texture is ok and the softening/smoothing ability is… Yep, you’ve guess it… just ok


If you’re a big fan of orange chocolate then this might be worth investing in but it’s £4.75 for a teensy tin and in the interests of reviewing this I’ve used it fairly frequently so I can say with certainty that it’s not gonna last that long

Although it might be handy in the autumn or spring I think most people will need something more hydrating in winter to deal with that awful combination of harsh winds and central heating so as far as I’m concerned this just doesn’t cut the mustard

I love the little metal tin this comes in and I have enjoyed using it but I wont be purchasing it again ♥
