sick bear with some updates.

So, I've been seeing my sister post more and more on her blog lately and got a tad bit jealous.

I am currently sick, which sucks, but I decided to post a little something even though I'm a little drowsy from Nyquil and probably will pass out in the next 10 minutes. Gosh, this is so annoying. I mean who gets sick in the summer? Come on...I didn't even know that was possible! And on top of being sick, I also have pink eye...I should say eyes. Haha. So not cool.

Anyway, I have a confession. I've been enjoying my new friend Galaxy (my phone) way too much lately, which is why I have once again neglected my poor little blog. Plus, I don't think I have anything that exciting to share. Ok, maybe I lied. I did purchase a few things recently that I'd like to talk about.

First, I got a new case for my phone. Actually, it's more like a bumper. The back is totally exposed.

Ain't she a cutie?! I've got this whole Hello Kitty vibe going without having the actual Hello Kitty on my phone and I'm absolutely in love! Thank you Amazon! It's so amazing what you can find on there for only $3! I feel like I do have to find some kind of case for it without getting rid of the fun bow because of the exposed back, but we'll see. Maybe I'll just keep it this way. It's just way too cute.

Lastly, I bought a couple of items from my nearest Shiseido store. I've never purchased anything from the company before, but I have heard some great things about their products.

The first thing I went straight for was their eyelash curler. I've kinda been a little obsessed with curling my eyelashes lately, but I always have trouble with curling my lashes in one shot. For some reason I can't seem to get the ends of my lashes with my current eyelash curler so I would have to curl them in two sections. Shiseido is an Asian cosmetics company (they also have hair products) and I heard that their eyelash curlers are targeted towards customers with "Asian eyes" so I had to check it out for myself.

As soon as I took it out of the box, the main thing I noticed is that it's much wider and flatter compared to my old curler. I feel like the flatness of the product gave me a hard time with getting my lashes in at first and since it was flatter, it was so much closer to my eyelids. I was scared of pinching them. I did, however, noticed that all my lashes were able to all fit in the curler. I gave it a few squeezes and voilĂ ! My lashes were curled from one end to the other. I'm still trying to get used to curling with it, but I am definitely happy with this $20 purchase.

The second item I got at the store was their Long-lasting Natural Finish Cream Concealer. I have the darkest circles under my eyes so I'm always looking for the perfect concealer to cover them up and something that will last the whole day. I haven't found one that I'm completely in love with or that I swear by yet, so I decided to try theirs out, especially since it covered up my very visible veins when I tried a little bit on the back of my hand at the store. I believe their price was $25 for the .44oz, which I thought was pretty reasonable. I haven't been able to try it yet on my face for a full day, but I definitely will once I get rid of this illness and let you guys know how I like it.

Well, that's pretty much it on my latest purchases. I hope you guys enjoy your weekend!
