:: G-Market Haul 3 ::
Just a little haul of skin care, beauty products and two of my favourite albums.
It is a small haul this time because Im using all the money in my G Account!
I had 89,450 won in the account. Some left overs from previous purchases because of over weighing and the best thing! I won 50,000won in the Top Bloggers!
GMarket is THE best!! I know the shipping can be pricey but if you shop right, like getting the coupons and checking member’s benefits corner everyday. It is definitely worth it! Also you will be purchasing things that you might not be able to get in your country. The fashion is different in Korea, the wonderful beauty products are all good quality and probably half the price than what you will pay in your local stores!
1. [The Face Shop]
Herb Day Cleansing Foams [####]
Im a big fan of The Face Shop’s cleansing foams especially the Mung Bean (if you have acne this is the one for you) and the one I currently use, Charcoal with Phyto Powder (good for oily skin). They are generous with the amount that they pack into the tube so it will last you a heap amount of washes.
Cleanses the face well with a natural core ingredient.
I was immediately happy when I found a 4 pack with a ridiculously good price. Four tubes for 13,200won on top of a 660won discount coupon.
Ultra Repair Wonder Cream [####]
First off. Woah was not expecting the tub to be this big! I had the impression that it was just a facial cream. But silly me I didnt read the label which clearly said that it was a 300ml container. So yes its not JUST for the face but for your body to.
I was only willing to buy this product because I saw that it had Hyluronic Acid. I have been using Hada Labo’s toner and cream for some time now and that stuff is amazing for my dry skin! And I can say the same thing with this Mizon product. Absolutely amazing. It may seem thick from the container but once you let it sink into your skin it leaves it hydrated and smooth and so soft! And it works well with the HadaLabo toner. It also came with a special GMarket discount.
Original price = 19,800 GMarket discount = 10,900 Total amount is = 8,900
Peri’s Tint Jelly Type [####]
I haven’t really used much products on my lips. Gloss, balms, lipsticks.
Occasionally the only Maybelline balm stick thing that I have that changes colour according to your skin. Which I do like…if i remember to apply it.
So I thought I’ll give this ago. I chose the most natural looking colour that was available and settled with the Mango Jelly stick. And yes it is very natural. Not to red and not too pink. So its safe for me to use it everyday and smells exactly like mango! It came with a free heat pack. Too bad I cant use it now because its Summer where I live now haha. 9,000won
5. [The Face Shop]
Face it! Waterproof Auto Eyeliner [####]
I have been using the Gel Auto Eyeliner version for quite some time now but in Khaki only because I read the label wrong when I was buying it in my local Face Shop. Told myself I definitely have to get this in Black. I couldnt find it in Gel Auto Liner form so I thought I would try this one out! I am yet to try it.
6. [Epik High]
After a few years of downloading music for free I told myself as a musician myself, out of respect I should make an effort to buy all the CDs that I have downloaded. So I am slowly starting this great task. Starting off with my all time favourite Korean Hip Hop group Epik High. If you havent heard any of their music I suggest you should! Even if you dont understand their lyrics. The beats that they create are just amazing. This is one of my favourite albums of theirs. Love all the tracks on here. Featuring some great underground talent. Bumkey, Yanki [TBNY] and SeongAh. Check out this album!
7. [Epik High]
Remapping the Human Soul [####]
This was the first album that I head from Epik High and Ive never gone back. Hands down this is their best works. In my opinion, because this is the album that sits in the middle between being “underground” and finally being recognised for their work to the public. So they still have their true Hip Hop underground sound, with maybe a few pop sounds especially in their single Love Love Love. Fan was another single that became popular. It was so hard to find this album with a reasonable price! Some website were just way over price. And G Market did not have it in stock everytime I made a purchase. Until now! Finally. So I had to get my hands on this!!
So all of this cost me 59,980won
Shipping was this time around under weighed so it was a total of 34,480won
Which is all good cause it was all technically free! Whoooo! haha
Shipping was really fast
:: Syncing ::
Have you ever experienced a day that just syncs so well with everything? How every event just flows nicely into each other. How you are presented with a fork in the road and make the decision to go down a path and it was just meant to be for the better?
Well I had that kind of day today!
Woke up early to do some last minute study for my last exam for my degree.
Then got the news that my dad wanted to join us to Melbourne.
Good link 1
Friend came to pick me up.
Harmony exam was damn easy.
Aced the listening section not too sure about multiple choice but who gives a fuck. I’m sure my assignments are sufficient enough give me at least a passing mark for the unit.
Good link 2
Went out for some celebration churros!
Good treats and good company. Laughs all around maybe a bit too loud.
But who cares we just finished our last exam!
Back to uni, followed my friend to student service.
Now while I was waiting I was considering if I should ask my friend for a ride home or stay and wait till I get picked up.
Fork in the road.
I chose to stay.
Doing a favour for my friend, I walked to the library and returned her books.
As I am about to hand in the books.
I hear “Iziiiii”.
Turn around and HE is there….
Seeing his smile just made my day even better
He seemed out of breathe so I asked him,
Him: “I saw you walking from the cafe so I ran”
Me: “Why didnt you call my name?”
Him: “I couldnt be bothered so I kept running, to catch up to you”
[Aw sweet…but why..why do yo have to do these things….]
I kept him company while he had his late lunch.
He was so excited to tell me about his holiday plans.
Then he tells me, that he’s going to Japan for a month.
And that can only mean one thing.
He is going to meet up with his Ex.
Now things can happen and things might not happen.
But they have been together for about two years.
But whatever it is I will be happy for him.
If all else fails, I want to be his close friend. His Bro.
He also asked alot of questions about me, usually he will never ask these
sought of things. Especially questioning about my parents.
Good Link 3
I couldnt help but thinking..
If I took that ride home with my friend
I would have never bumped into HIM…
Life works in weird ways sometimes…
:: Not Again! ::
So! Theres this guy.
I like him.
Dont know if he likes me the same way….
A few years have gone past since my last experience of beiong a hopeless romantic, just crushing hard on a guy.
After not being interested in a guy for two years in uni…I never thought I would have these feelings by the time I graduate. You know those feelings im talking about! Just the thought, the mention or seeing him gets you all excited, pulse pumping to a faster beat, trying to contain yourself from exploding! Oh those feelings. This time I must not stuff this up! Dont just stare at him. Daydreaming of that special day. Dreams dont happen if you dont turn them into practical goals! Yes. However. There might be some signs on his side this time around. Always happy to see me. Always finding some way to touch me. Hugging. Hands. Always looks me in the eyes when talking. Has a vulnerable tone to his voice talking to me. Nicknames. Asks how my love life is (obviously nothing!…im definitely doing something wrong….) Has casually said I have a pretty face in a passing joke, but in a good way. Im not expecting anything. If it happens it happens! Its meant to be its meant to be.
:: Gmarket Haul 2 ::
What do I do with the money that I have been saving since last year?
I spend on this amazing website Gmarket!
Yes, the shipping is expensive but the prices of everything is so cheap!
You can practically find anything in this site!
Order date: 24 July
Shipping/Arrival date: 30 July - 2 August
No. of Items: 14
Ok so this haul is full of clothes. Just clothes because Im in need of winter tops!
Long sleeves, jumpers, cardigans. However, my timing is utterly wrong as it is now Summer in Korea. However, I managed to find some warm items after 4 weeks of searching.
1, 2. Jumpers [스타일온리]
Both jumpers from the same seller.
Really good quality, very nice and warm.
3, 4. Cardigans [(주)티트리]
Both from the same seller. Great quality as well! Little bit on the thin side, but something about the material I really like. And it comes in so many different colours! I think I’ll buy more in my next haul.
5. Triangle Pocket Tee [the DaDa]
Again very good quality. Nice and soft. The bottom is cut in asymmetrical style. So long at the back and normal length at the front.
6. Bead Pocket Tee [트리엠제이]
I am so happy I found this tee. Because I also wanted the Blue colour of the tee above but the seller had already run out of stock. Different pocket design but cutting and quality is all the same!
7. Basic Baseball Tee [Just One]
Again great quality. I’ve always wanted a one of these basic tops. And finally found it. One that is for a decent price and good quality. Unlike the ones I find here where I live. They are usually too thin and over priced for a basic top!
8, 9. Basic Tees [슈가펀]
This was the only disappointment of my haul. I was in need of basic tees.
However, these turned out to be very thin and see through. Yes, the material is soft, but its soft to the point where it will stretch easily!
10. Zip Denim Shirt [바비라떼]
When I found this shirt. I knew I had to buy it! I just love the zip detail.
Material sort of rough and thin. But very comfortable to wear. Im happy with this purchase.
11, 12. Scarfs
Both scarfs are from different sellers. I forgot to take down the seller’s names. But they at the top of the scarfs category. Really really, good quality! So soft and warm! And the designs are so unique. The material is so soft that you can manipulate it to any style you like to wear your scarf.
13. Boat Shoes [걸스데이]
I have mixed feelings with this purchase. The good points is that its very comfortable. Good fit. And looks exactly like the picture. However, because you are not able to hold it in your hands. You wont be able to feel the material. I was hoping that this would be made out of soft material. But its more like a hard foam like material.
14. Ballet Socks
*** G-Market Shopping Tips ***
Heres some tips I think will be helpful.
+ Before you even start searching for your new purchases…
GET THOSE COUPONS! Head over to the Custom Benefit page -> Discount Coupons
And just keep trying each coupon. Doesn’t hurt to try every time you log in!
From experience I will usually win 5/12 coupons. Will save you heaaaps of money, which means you can add more items to your cart!
+ Document your findings!
Open up a springpad account. Or just open a word document.
List the items include: Minishop link, Item link (the individual page of the item when you click the picture of the item), Item picture (so you can recap what you want. Very helpful with clothes or shoes because you cant really see the item picture in your shopping cart.
This is very important. This will help you make you decision faster, so you dont have to judge by the picture, wondering if it will fit you or not. Best thing to do is choose a selection of your favourite pieces of clothings that fit you well. Tees, Jumpers, Jackets, Pants. And measure. Then you can just quickly check the size of each item on the individual item page, when you click on the image in the mini shop.
:: Dream Log ::
Its been awhile since I’ve remembered a dream.
Last night’s dream was thankfully a positive…
Well I hope that it has positive symbolism….
Sitting in a cafe with what felt like close friends, however I am not able to recall their names. Chatting, eating, laughing.
Something attracts my attention and I turn to the left and I see a dark haired boy, good-looking might I add. Looking at me. Right in my eyes. I smile and quickly return to my friends conversation, my friends don’t notice that I’ve started blushing.
We continue laughing.
Few minutes later the same boy sits next to me. Joining the conversation.
My friends greet him warmly, as if they’ve known each other, more than just an acquaintance. My friends continue with the conversation. I sit there confused. Thinking why don’t I know this mysterious boy and yet my friends seem to know him so well.
[Then something in my mind triggers telling me that Im in the cafe at an university. However, it’s a different university to my real life one. But I can ‘feel’ that the friends I’m sitting with are the same friends I have in my actual university in real life. But I can’t see their face. Just “feel” their presence.]
I turn my head to look what is behind me. No reason. And as I turn my head back. The boy catches my eyes and introduces himself. I don’t remember what he said. But I had the “feeling” that he was new to the place. But still somehow knew my friends. We start our own conversation. Just the two of us. We cover all the basic conversation topics. Music. Movies. Books. TV. Everyday life humour. We find things in common very fast. And connect as if we’ve been best friends for years. My friends don’t notice a thing. The boy and me just being honest, laughing and smiling together.
As he laughs at one of my comments, he places his hand on mine. My hand twiches as a quick reaction. But I leave my hand there. I could feel his warmth and he held onto my hand a little tighter. [Don’t know how I remember such small details of this part of the dream] I lean my head on his shoulder and we start laughing again. One of my friends notices and gives me a smile.
The dream changes to me and the boy walking into a restaurant. I start to feel nervous. As we approach a table, I realise why I feel nervous. I meet my parents, auntie and cousin at the table. I introduce the boy to them. “Hello, this is _____, a friend of mine”. Then I forget the mysterious boys presence. As if he was not there anymore sitting next to me with my family.
My dream then turns to a short comedy. When I look up and see my cousin across me. With the most outrageous hair I have ever seen. Sort of crimped yet dread-locky. He sees me staring at his hair. And tells me “The hairdresser didnt listen to me!”. And hangs his head with a sad face.
[This part isn’t so random because today my cousin and I went for a haircut]
Whose this mysterious boy?
What does it mean?
Will I actually meet this boy?
Maybe I have already met him…maybe not.
I just remember this video I posted some time ago and just HAD to re-post it again HAHAHA FUCKING HILARIOUS!!!!

Geez, Come out with an album already will yaa?? aha
