#100happydays: day 23 - , Formal, more makeup, learning how to be a girl

Hi guys! My formal was last night and today I have a paper to write, but whenever that happens I feel like I have to do 93484376 things instead, so here I am. Writing. I'll format this post in such a way that the #100happydays basically explain my week.. or whatever's happening,
#100happydays day 23 - Jw bought me Jap last week because our horrible B.C. Sushi experience did not satisfy his craving for sushi (and mine for tempura!!!). It wasn't fancy or anything, in fact it was right across our place but we had so much fun not talking and having to think about deadlines and schoolwork for once. And because I **FINALLY** got soba. So that made me happy. This place is One More Sushi in the UBC village which is the priciest (student living, amirite??) among the three sushi places in the village, but late last week a new one in the food court opened up and it's the cleanest and the cheapest. Plus they've been giving out samples so that's great :) I have no idea what it's called but it's bright and their name starts with M... if that helps?

Day 24 – MARMITE!! Mom sends me pictures of him all the time but I love this because this is exactly where I want to be right now, back home on that chair, under the parasol with an abundance of milk tea and bak chor mee and reading my books. Also Marmite makes me happy, it's just sad that he hates everyone. Why do you have so much hate in you, Marmite? Because he's a cat is why.

Day 25: CARAMEL SPREAD!! I've been looking for Lotus Caramel Spread here in Vancouver, but to no avail. I found this in Safeway and while it tastes nothing like Lotus biscuits, spooning this into my mouth has been kind of great. Except sometimes I go overboard and I die of sweetness overkill. But the reason why this makes me happy is ... because the day that we went grocery shopping, Jw and I found a ton of coins at home and brought them to Safeway to put them into the coin machine there, and get a cash value voucher in exchange. The last time we did that, we got like 17 dollars, and the coins felt so much heavier at that time as well. We did that this time, and ended up with 40 dollars worth of coins! So we got a 40 dollar voucher. Which meant we could! buy! anything! Sort of. We spent our time filling our cart with things we normally wouldn't get, like Happy Planet Soup (my favourites are the Chilliwack Brocolli and the [not so] Thai Coconut soup) and that caramel spread (because it really doesn't go well with bread). I think we also pissed a lot of people off because whenever I was picking up a cheaper alternative to whatever product we were getting, Jw would jokingly go "get (the most expensive one!) we're so rich today".. and naturally, being in Vancouver, and with the whole cancellation of the wealthy immigrant government plan in the news, we got a lottt of stares. Whoops. We're really just poor students in real life guys, no need for dirty looks.

Day 26: Spent the afternoon in the CR writing my essay. Got zero words down, so basically this means just Reddit and Facebook and stuff. Nobody knew it but my hair had been unwashed for two days and apart from filling in my eyebrows I wasn't wearing any make up. Anyway I realised this as I was mid way through "writing my essay" and I felt really good that I managed to find a group of people I feel really comfortable around.

Day 27: Jw and I just took a day off from **everything** to just hang out properly and it was great. We finally caught the Grand Budapest Hotel, and I think it goes without saying that anything by Wes Anderson is perfect (my favourite is Steve Zissou). I wish I was a character in one of his movies.

Day 28: The day before formal! I did my hair and makeup this time round, i think i looked so much better than when I got them done for prom. (then again, that was three years ago and I was a terrible child then). Some of the products I used:
Tony Moly Mask sheet
Japanese **PANDA** (because AOII, right?) eyebag mask,
Sation nail laquer in Love at First Byte (not great)
Etude House Eyes Cream
Then I really disliked my nails so I painted them in Essie's Master Plan! I love the colour of it.

  and.... my face of the night:

Day 29: FORMAL!! Pictures haven't been uploaded yet so here's my face for the night. Tried to use falsies but they just wouldn't stick on properly so I gave up. I shaped my own brows, straightened my own hair (i was gonna go with curls but i couldn't master than either)... anyway this is one of the few selfies I took because I am a #narsissist (get it? Nars? Narcissist? No? .. it's their official hashtag) Jw taught me all I needed to know. Like how to straighten my hair. I will never forget the look he had on his face when he first saw me trying to do it by myself, hahahah Also, I tried out contouring but I don't really think it worked because my nose and jawline look the same.
All in all, it was great learning to be a girl and doing girly things the few days leading up to it, like getting the right pair of shoes, freaking out about my dress because the first one didn't arrive, paying a buttload of taxes for it, learning how to draw my brows on PROPERLY (seriously though I'm still getting them retattooed on when I'm in Singapore), trying to pop a stye, going suit shopping with my boyfriend, picking out a tie for him, and... trying my very best not to eat all the butter I could that night.
Products I used:
Etude House Goodbye Porever Primer
Holika Holika Face 2 Change Liquid Roller BB Cream
Urban Decay 247 Concealer
Tony Moly Crystal Blusher in Gold Glamour
Benefit Watts Up (I really love this)

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (Shades used: Naked 2 + Faint)
Tony Moly Gel Liner in Black (top lid)
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye Pencil in Jet, smudged out (bottom lid)
Benefit They're Real Mascara (base)
Diorshow Blackout

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Genius Kit in Medium Brown

M.A.C. Cremestick Lipliner in Beurre
Armani Rouge D'Armani in shade 400

  Hahaha realising that that's a lot of stuff.. but it took me like 45 minutes in total to get ready, minus the hair. .... And I have 150 / 1500 words for this essay. Back to work!
