Birthday Wishlist

It's closing in to my birthday (yay!) I'm turning 25 in about 3 weeks *sigh*
I'd like to think that turning 25 is quite a big milestone :P but I guess as you get older, people don't take birthday too seriously anymore. Still, I'm a big fan of birthdays (like how Lily loves her birthday on How I Met Your Mother, seriously) I love waking up at midnight or staying late to wait til I turn a year older. I kept every birthday messages I got for that year until the next one comes (provided I don't change phone) and I will still be awake til the last hours of fifth of June just to close the day :)

For the 25th, I wanted to held a brunch/lunch like I've done about the last 6 years or so. But as I thought it through, I don't really have many friends here and my birthday would fall on a weekday so I canceled it. I love making/buying cakes for my own birthday and planning my brunch, but I guess that won't be the case this year. I love surprises tho, I've never had anyone throwing a surprise birthday for me and I think that's kind of the top of my wishlist almost all my life ahaha cheesy lady.

Sweet hubby decided to take some days off on my birthday weekend and we're going to go on a celebration roadtrip (yay!) :))) I thought that would be one of his busy weeks, but he said it's okay :) so instead of planning a brunch, I planned our trip for that weekend. So far everything's ready, just have to pick my clothes for the trip (yea rite) :))

As for my birthday wishlist... Here are the things I want for this year's birthday. Since this is a whatever-i-want list, I just put everything in there :D

Blogger Appreciation Award

So I've been tagged by my sister (her blog just got a dotcom domain, btw, congrats!) for a Blogger Appreciation Award :)

This tag is quite simple and short but somehow I forgot about it in some weeks that she had to remind me about it ^^;; These are the things you have to do if you're tagged with this award;

1. Thank the person who gave you the award with their blog link on your post.
2. Answer the following 4 questions.
3. Award the blogger appreciation award as many readers/commenters/followers as you'd like.
4. Let the blogger know you've just awarded them (by leaving a comment/email/tweet/etc).

The Questions:
1. How long have you been blogging?
2. What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging?
3. What types of blog do you like to follow/read?
4. What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger/on your blog?

So here goes...

How long have you been blogging?
I have to say it first, I'm not quite sure. Before it came to blogging, I had a website long time ago that accommodated my affection for Magic Knight Rayearth (yeah, I was a part time otaku, just a little) during junior high school years. Then I have several domains until I arrived here. I wrote quite many posts back in friendster blog (which has, sadly, terminated) and then multiply, then migrating to blogspot, even tho I used to have a blogspot domain even before that... I consider the real start was my friendster blog, which was in 2005 :) so it's been 7 years since then.

What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging?
At first I thought it's just an idea of a diary, I thought no one would read it anyway :P I wrote lyrics that I love, random pics and whatever it is that crossed my mind. Then after some time, I did realize that it's nice reading your old posts for keepsake reasons. As for peachysweetness, it was my 2011 resolution to start a *beauty* blog. I think it would be somewhat helpful to someone if I keep a record of the things I tried, cosmetic-wise. And I think it's good for me too to keep track of what cosmetic products I already owned and made me more aware before buying new stuff :)

What types of blog do you like to follow/read?
I love reading reviews. Maybe that's why Temptalia is one of my most visited links. I honestly rarely bother about tutorials because I think I already grasped the basic (really really basic) so most tutorials that I watched was mostly different in eye make up. And until now I don't really do anything with my eyes, just eyeliner is enough. The only tutorials I have in my browser's bookmark are pinkfishpie's Elegant Princess Make Up Tutorial Transformation and Wintery Silver Make Up Tutorial. Whenever I wear eyeshadows I basically go from those links. I think it's because she has the same lids as mine :D

Aside from reviews, I love reading Asian beauty blogs because of the skintone and sometimes monolids similarities, also because I think there are so many great products still out there with more affordable prices. I also love reading european beauty blogs for more reachable brands :)

What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger/on your blog?
When I read other blogs, seeing the pictures is what excites me. If I saw a review with just one picture and lots of words, I won't enjoy it so much. That's why I wish I could improve the amount and quality of my pictures in the blog. :) 

So I guess that's all for this tag. I'd like to tag Jian from Pinkfishtart and Vero from christyvero ! :) Have fun with it, girls ^^

Barbie might Love Essie Lovie Dovie

As I mentioned in my April Glossy Box post / report, I received a bottle of Essie Lovie Dovie in it :) I was really excited over it, especially after I learnt that everyone also got Essie polish in their box but different colors. I'm glad that I got this one, honestly. Sorry for the cheesy caption pic, I couldn't take my pics off lenslight and instagram these days so I thought I'd put that one up :) Let's take a closer look, shall we?
