grad school face.

Ever since I started wearing makeup, I don't think I've settled for anything resembling a 'routine'. Most often, I'd get restless and want to use everything. There have been short intervals of a routine when life was too busy sucking brain power and left me too uninspired for anything creative in the makeup world, but it'd rarely be longer than a week. However, ever since starting my masters degree more than two weeks ago, I've been too occupied over not breaking down over the workload and every weekday morning has resembled more or less the same zombie 'slap and go' routine.

I'd like to think I'm a person that makes up my mind fairly quick. And that's usually the case, I'll be the one that's impatiently ticking their fingers as I wait for the rest of the party make up their mind on which burger they're going for. But while I make a lot of big life decisions in a throwing my hands up in the air 'ugh, f*ck it' kinda attitude, I've been known to torture my friends as I've umm-ed and ahh-ed over things for the longest time. The same goes to makeup products, I can usually make up my mind on if I'm adoring the product or not quite soon and stick to it. But then there are the ones that I'm teetering on the fence over.

the process of online shopping

I love buying things but I hate spending money. Perfect logic. I think it's more evident than the sky is blue, but I'm a student with a bad shopping problem. As a student, I'm definitely going to have periodical stress - you know, exams, essays, course selection and so forth. Some people binge eat, some people stress shop. Me? I do both. But as I said, I hate spending money so I've developed an online shopping process that has somewhat saved me a couple bucks here and there.

be nice to your bank account #1

It's not a secret that I have a bad shopping habit. The reception person downstairs in my new flat knew me as 'the shopacholic' not even a week after I moved in. Alas, I don't have a personal genie that's able to supply me with unlimited cash. So as the poor, poor student that uses stress as her shopping excuse I am, my favourite buys are those that are fantastic while still being nice to the bank account by not cratering a catastrophic wreck.

the game changers #2

If you grew up on Disney movies, you'll understand it when I say sequels are never as good as the originals. The only exception to that is Toy Story 3, I cried like a baby having it's favourite toy taken away throughout the movie - it was almost embarrassing. Except it wasn't because for those of you that are around my age, you'll understand how the last installment of the Toy Story was a grand finale to childhood. The end of an era. Back to the point, sequels never live up to the originals, but hopefully this sequel to the post that I did near six months ago will be on par. After all, it is a game changer - see what I did there?
