Excited Some More...

Hello my lovelies!

It is 9:01AM as I write up a blog post and my stomach growls. I am so hungry, but I am too lazy to get something to eat. That's bad right? Ugh... anyways! How is everyone doing? No one ever replies so I'm guessing you're doing well! I feel accomplished that I wrote another blog post in less than 4 days. =)


Live, Laugh, Love


I have a DIY mask on and it feels so cool and tingly. It is a yogurt and oatmeal mask with a teaspoon of lemon juice. I've been breaking out in acne bumps and pimples where I've never had them before. I'm a little worried so I just used a citrus scrub after I washed my face this morning, followed with a DIY mask. I don't have to worry about my skin drying out because yogurt is very moisturizing and soothing. ^_^

Today is my last day of school before winter break! Yehhh!!! The bad news is I have to do TONS of work today. =_= Oh, right! Last night, I had my Christmas dance performances and the only one that turned out okay was Ballet! It was really unexpected, but we got our music slowed down a bit so that helped a lot too. Lyrical was bad, and in Jazz, I was winging it lol. Our Jazz teacher had to be subbed in and we had to learn a new dance on the spot.

It reminds me, if you have ever watched the show Project Runway, Tim always says,  "Make it work." That is his line hahah. I remember trying to imitate him at one point. I used to always watch this show with my sister and dad. Good times =)



Three more days until Christmas! I'm still excited as ever, but we don't have any presents under our tree yet. =( My dad says he isn't done with his Christmas shopping; so as you can see, he does everything at the last minute lol. I can also tell he hasn't wrapped anything either because the two rolls of gift wrapping paper that we bought are still sitting in our dining room. Good news is that I was able to put up some ornaments and decorations on our tree last night; I will put on the rest either today or tomorrow.

I was so beat yesterday. I had many many errands to do so I was out the whole day, and then I had to go to my three dance classes in the evening. I'm glad I went so I could get over with the performances and I got candy lol. I'm a little sad winter break started today at my dance studio. =')
I just learned a new song to sing that is called Good Day by IU. It is so cute and girly, and I love the lyrics. I actually searched it up in English so I could understand the song. I finally am able to sing this, and I hope everyone will love her song Good Day too. Here is IU's music video!




Have a Good Day because I <3 U. ^_~


Much love, Anzu xx

Merry Christmas!!

Hi everyone!

Christmas is coming up this Sunday! Are you excited? I am! :D I'm sorry that my Christmas themed post is so late; I should have probably posted it last month. Let's continue! It is currently 12:51PM, I think I need to eat lunch soon. All I ate for breakfast were some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that I made with my dad. They were pretty good though... couldn't resist!

My winter break is December 23 to January 16; it starts this coming Friday. All my other friends are already on break because they got out of school this last Friday. They're so lucky. =P My Christmas dance performances are coming up! I'm still so nervous!

Since it's Christmas, I will probably do things that I don't do very often. Such as cleaning my room, eating 3 meals a day, setting up my Christmas tree, decorating, sending cards, and receiving and giving presents. My room and closet is a total mess! I look at it and think, "It could be worst." When in reality, it can't lol. I set up my fake 7ft. Christmas tree on Saturday, it took me forever hahah. I was going to decorate it yesterday, but I was busy with other stuff. Might do it tonight..



We're not putting any Christmas lights on our house this year. Now that I think about it, we haven't done so in a long time. When I was younger, I'd always look forward to it and literally beg my dad to put them up. But after a couple years, I just forgot all about it. A lot of traditions have been broken, such as getting a real Christmas tree. This is our third or fourth year with a fake one? It saddens me sometimes. My mom was the one that didn't like the real ones. And as usual, my dad always listens to my mom. Sigh...

How are you going to spend your Christmas? I can't go visit my family down in Southern California this year because my dad has to work. =( So it's just me and my parents unless we have company. I'm looking forward to my church's Candle Light Service that's on Christmas Eve though. I think it's going to turn out well. We had a rehearsal yesterday, and it was pretty good.

I also went to a Christmas party and we had a gift exchange. I got a whiteboard calendar with extra markers, a Eco spiral journal, colored pens, a large polka dot purple cup for my tea, and a purple throw blanket. I seriously felt super special hahah. I thanked them a million times. =)




This is Michelle Phan's latest video; it is a makeup tutorial on her "Mistletoe Kiss" look. I just love it! The fake crease looked unappealing at first, but it actually looks really nice! I might just try this. ^_~ "Holiday parties, dance, get together, dinner date, whatever the occasion may be, you want to look fab..." This look was created using products from her December's Glambag from MyGlam. It's actually pretty cool, I haven't tried it before though. It looks very convenient and stylish, check out the website!

The weather has been chilly, but there is no snow over here; it would be unusual if there was. I like to layer up on sweaters, scarves, coats, and wear a pair of comfy boots. What would be Christmas without the cold weather? Some places have the same weather all year round though. Such as Hawaii and other countries such as Malaysia and Singapore. Another thing that makes everything feel like Christmas are the lights. I think they're just gorgeous and they makes everything look so festive. =)


Next week, I am going to the State Youth Conference (Tsunami) that takes place in Santa Clara. I am so excited! I will be able to go with a couple of my friends, and it'll be my first time. Tsunami is where all kinds of Christian youth come together at one place and fellowship, take classes, and go to concerts. I have no idea what it will be like, but I know I will be staying in a hotel. I haven't spent a night in one in a really long time. That's enough to keep me thrilled. "What's so great about a hotel?" my dad would say. =P The State Youth Conference will be three days and two nights; I bet it will be a lot of fun!

I really wish I could by a Christmas costume for my dogs... random, I know lol. I saw them at Walmart the other day and they were SO adorable. They had reindeer ears, little dresses, sweaters, scarves, etc. I don't really dress up my dogs though, but come on! It's Christmas! Ginger and Bear would look adorable!! >__<

The reason why I love dachshunds <3


Have a merry merry Christmas everyone! Hope you enjoyed my Christmas post! I love you all ^__^
Here is a extra video if you don't mind. =) Nigahiga's latest video!




MERRY CHRISTMAS!


Much love, Anzu xxxx

Updates!

Hello my gorgeous viewers!

How was every one's week so far? I apologize for not posting 7 days straight! I've just been busy with other things, and I felt lazy at the same time. So sorry. =( Since it has been a whole week, I will try my best to update you guys on everything. Oh, and if you're just wondering, the time is 12:22PM right now.

One of the things that have been keeping me busy is the Christmas service at my church that takes place on Christmas Eve. I am singing two solos in the program, and I have been practicing a lot. So nervous! Another thing I am working on are my Christmas dances to showcase to the parents next week. I still need to work on all the dances a lot more; the one I'm practicing the most is my Russian Nutcracker choreography for Ballet. It's just too fast! I'm trying to keep up though. Again, my class is supposed to be the most advanced so that really kills me lol. Work hard Anzu!



 
Another thing I have been spending my time on is Scrabble. I know, lame. But seriously! It is super addictive! I downloaded the free app on my phone after seeing one of my friends playing on it. Yes, we are nerdy. ;P I have also been playing Temple Run. It is also a game app; it was recommended to me and I love it now hahah. =)

I have an iPhone 3G I think? It's the second oldest version I'm guessing; so, it won't let me update the software on my phone. It is just so frustrating sometimes! Ugh. I'm thankful that I have an iPhone though.. even though I dropped it and cracked the screen. In my defense, I had no pockets that day!

I was carrying boxes while opening a door, and my phone was on top. So, right when I was about to go inside, it slipped off the surface and dropped flat onto the cement. Sigh... yes, yes, my fault. =_= At least it still works! It's cracked pretty bad though.. I'm so stupid!



So, Coffee Prince was one of the BEST dramas ever. I think it's even better than Boys Over Flowers. The Korean drama that I am finishing up now is called Princess Hours. (By the way, I watch all my dramas and anime on http://www.crunchyroll.com) It was hard to get used to it at first because the main character Chae-Kyung is also the main character in Coffee Prince. She is an amazing actress because she went from a total tom boy prince to a girly princess. The personalities of the two characters are so different!! Another awkward thing was Chae-Kyung's mother's character is played by the same woman that plays the mother of Geum Jand Di in Boys Over Flowers. It was insane lol! I personally like the mother role she played in Boys Over Flowers.

Princess Hours is 22 episodes long and I'm almost finished watching it! I don't think the drama is that bad, but I'm not a fan of it. I personally don't like it at all, but it's interesting to watch. I loved the characters at first, but the drama gets really irritating. Hope it ends with a happy ending! For those who have seen this drama, would you prefer Chae-Kyung to go with Prince Eui-Sung or Prince Shin? I'm so going for Prince Shin hahah! ^_^ I love him, even from the beginning, I've always liked Shin better. They're just too cute. <3 I think Yoon Eun Hye just looks adorable in this drama!

Here is the link to wikipedia's explanation of Princess Hours:




That's all I have for you guys today! Winter break is coming up! Hope you guys enjoyed my post! So many exclamation points... Here is a video of one of my favorite songs. Mr.Simple by Super Junior; it's just so addicting hahah. Love that they have the funkiest hair! I like this music video because I haven't seen such an enjoyable cheesy one like this in a long time! I laughed about half the time lmao. I'm still in love with this song!




Take care!!


Much love, Anzu xx

Stressed?

Hello my lovely cupcakes!


How is everyone doing? It is 12:47PM at the moment, and I wasn't going to post but it's already been three days since my last entry. This week has been more busy than usual; I still can't believe Christmas is almost here! I'm looking forward to it but at the same time I'm not?

Last night, I learned the rest of my Russian Nutcracker and it is SO HARD. I almost died. xD Couldn't believe the dance was under a minute; I think it just shows how fast and intense it is hahah. We only just learned our dance for Lyrical yesterday and we had a substitute Jazz teacher. Jazz was pretty hilarious.

We have a creepy large Santa doll that stands in one of the hallways in my dance studio. We brought it inside our Jazz class and made a choreography to the song Santa Baby while dancing with Santa... lol.

It's weird, I'm really talkative at home and with my close friends, but at my dance studio, I barely say a word. Everyone there thinks I'm the quiet type; they'd freak if they knew how I really am. Same visa versa. They both feel like the real me, I don't think there was one moment where I felt like I was acting like someone else. At least I don't have a split personality disorder.


Yesterday, I tried to make cupcakes out of modeling clay. The clay was made out of some type of plastic so it wouldn't even harden if I baked it. Ugh, I failed. I tried to make a Mario mushroom, but I failed at that too. =__=

I made a clay rose for my mom's Christmas present though. Shh! She doesn't know.. I have to make something for my dad and I need to get something more for both of them. I also need to get presents for my friends and my other family members. Ugh, the thing is that I don't have any money!! Also, I have A LOT of family members. My parents don't believe in allowances and I can't work for a few reasons. I don't know what to do; this is stressing me out too. Do you guys have any ideas? I NEED to earn money! Everyone just does so much for me. ='(

So guys, I finished watching Boys Over Flowers and it was A-ma-zing! Loved it. I wish it didn't have to end though. Now I am watching a Korean drama called Coffee Prince. It is just as cute and hilarious. Some characters really irritate me, but it would be weird if everything was perfect anyways. The main character, which is the heroine, is supposed to look like a boy. I wish she had just a TINY bit of femininity though. I am still in love with this show!! There are 17 episodes, I'm already on the 16th. =((

Here is the link to wikipedia's explanation of Coffee Prince:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_1st_Shop_of_Coffee_Prince



So! I posted the music video for the Korean song Trouble Maker by Trouble Maker (Hyuna Kim and JS). Did you guys like it? ^_^ It gets better when you listen to it more. Now the 2nd song I mentioned was You and I by IU. Ugh I like love her now. Her voice, her hair, her innocence, her songs, and her music videos. =P Please enjoy!



I didn't get what the music video meant at first, but eventually I got it. ^_~ It is so cute, sweet, and lovely! Her lover fell into a coma and no matter what she did, he wouldn't wake up. She then looks into the future and sees her and her lover happy together. She loses her patience; she couldn't wait to be with him again. So, she builds a time machine and takes off into the future. At the moment she leaves, her lover wakes up. In the future they meet again, and they recognize each other. They finally get to be with each other in the end. =) <3

Have a wonderful day!


Much love, Anzu xx

Ahhh!

Hi everyone!!



Sorry for not posting the past few days! I'm officially in LOVE with Boys Over Flowers! I've been watching hours of it; approximately 22 hours because I'm on episode 22! Each episode is about an hour long and there are 25 of them. My favorite Korean drama will be over soon. =( I'm rooting for Junpyo and Jandi even though there are so many disturbances in their relationship lol!

So how is everyone doing?? It is 10:57AM as I type out a blog post entry and watch Korean pop music videos on YouTube. Recently, Bubzbeauty has started posting for her weekly favorites in music. I'm in love with all her "BEST Songs of the Week" which includes Trouble Maker by Trouble Maker, You and I by IU, and Tomorrow by Tablo ft. Taeyang. I already knew about Tomorrow because, as you probably already know, I'm a huge fan of Tablo.

I'm also now a fan of IU and Trouble Maker (Hyuna Kim and Hyun Seong (JS)). I was already a fan of Hyuna so it was pretty amazing lol. I will post the different music videos, but only one per blog entry. I think JS is like so amazing and hot now hahah, you'll just have to see the video! JS is a guy by the way lol! The music video gives of a sexual feel, but that's the way they're supposed to act. Hyuna Kim is actually a really sweet and shy girl! It might not seem so in the video though.




I was SO tired yesterday, but the weird thing is I don't know the reason why. I did only have 6 hours of sleep the night before, and I usually have at least 7 hours. I was watching Boys Over Flowers on my phone all night long lol. Hm what did I do yesterday?
  • Woke up at 7AM
  • Went to church
  • Lunch at Black Bear Diner
  • Boys Over Flowers
  • Dinner
  • Practiced Keyboard
  • Skype  
  • Texting
  • Bed
A lot happened at my church, so I guess that's when I started to get really tired and stressed out. Sigh... I think I will get a facial mask and just relax. When I'm lazy, I just get some plain natural yogurt and slap it on my face hahah. I'm so weird, but it actually does help a lot! I haven't used a mask in a week or so.

My breakouts are getting less and less noticeable though. I think it is because I've used a different cleansing product lately. I am using Noxzema Original Deep Cleansing Cream. It makes me feel so refreshed and I like using it when I'm too lazy to go through a beauty facial routine.

I usually use Neutrogena liquid facial cleanser and I always have to use a washcloth and there's a process I go through lol. It just feels like too much work sometimes and it's actually made my skin feel really dry and flaky recently. I think the reason is because it rids of all the natural oils in my skin.. I wouldn't recommend this product for people with sensitive or dry skin.

Noxzema Original Deep Cleansing Cream



Neutrogena Liquid Cleansing Formula (Fragrance-Free)


This is all I have for you today! I hope you liked my blog post, and please guide me through this everyone! Please follow me if you like my blog and comment below if you have any suggestions on how to make my blog better. Here is the awaited Trouble Maker 'Trouble Maker' M/V! I'm so hooked on to this song now.. really wish I had itunes! =_= 



English lyrics:

1! 2! 3!


(JS) When I look into your eyes, I'm a Trouble Maker.

(Hyuna) When I stand next to you, I'm a Trouble Maker.

(JS) Little by little, even more more more.

(Hyuna) As time goes by, even more more more.

(Both) Now I can't even control my own heart.
So, you won't forget me I stand in front of you again.
I keep playing with your heart so you won't leave me.
Stealing your lips again, I disappear far away from you.
I'm a Trou-a-a-a-ble! Trouble!
Trou-Trouble Maker!

(JS) Trouble Maker!

(Both) Trouble Maker!
Trouble Maker! Trouble Maker!

(Hyuna) Like a cat, I will bite your heart and run away.
You will keep getting frustrated, so go on and try, try to get mad at me.
My sexy walk will trigger your mind.
Your eyes are already telling me you are dying from the lack of my touch.

(JS) Longer we are together you fall deeper into me.
The more I get to know you, you. I like you more, baby.
I really must be drunk in thoughts of you, lady.
I never, never, never stop!

(Both) So, you won't forget me I stand in front of you again.
I keep playing with your heart so you won't leave me.
Stealing your lips again, I disappear far away from you.
I'm a Trou-a-a-a-ble! Trouble!
Trou-Trouble Maker!

(JS) Trouble Maker!

(Both) Trouble Maker!

(JS) Trouble Maker!

(Both) Trouble Maker!

(JS) How can I keep locked up in my heart?
(Trouble Maker)

(Hyuna) Now, I just leave it to where my heart goes.

(JS) I never, never stop!

(Both) I can't stop!

(Both) So, you won't forget me I stand in front of you again.
(Oh yeah~)
I keep playing with your heart so you won't leave me.
Stealing your lips again, I disappear far away from you.
I'm a Trou-a-a-a-ble! Trouble!
Trou-Trouble Maker!

(JS) Trouble Maker!

(Both) Trouble Maker!

(JS) Trouble Maker!

(Both) Trouble Maker!

Yay..

Hey guys!

I have great news! My mom didn't need surgery after all; it seems her brain is healing itself. Isn't that great?? Miracle! It is 9:40AM as I write this entry and eat a piece of pecan pie. Can you believe it is already December?? Christmas is crawling around the corner; I plan to make a post with a topic of Christmas soon, but I don't have any ideas on what to talk about! T__T

Just recently, I've figured out the number #1 thing I want for Christmas. I mean, I want it really really REALLY bad. I want a barrel curling iron!! The one where you don't have to clip your hair, but just wrap your hair around the iron for 10 seconds? My gosh I just wish I had one! NNNGHH!! Please bear with my whining and frustration for now lol. My parents won't let me use any heat tools so I'm out of luck. T_T I tried using hot water curlers yesterday on my hair just for fun.. it was way too hard! The clasps kept popping out (literally) because my hair is super thick. I spent over an hour or two just trying to use those.

I can curl my hair by braiding but it gives off crimped waves. I want big, soft, loose waves.. like the picture of Selena Gomez I showed you guys a couple posts ago. I can twist my hair too, but man it is a lot of work! =_= So those are the reasons I want a barrel curling iron; I think they're better than the other kinds. I hope Santa will be kind enough to give me one lol! xD

So how is everyone? Happy and not "pmsing" like me? My mind is blank right now.. lmao my dad would make a joke out of that. So, last night I had dance practice; I got a friend to give me a lift because my parents were out of town. I felt I was better at dancing than usual yesterday, but I have a feeling it's because all of the dances were super easy to all the other advanced dancers. We're supposed to come up with a Christmas dance and showcase it to either other classes or our parents. I'm going to practice extra hard this week!



Look at her toes!! So amazing...

I only learned recently that the classes I'm in are the most advanced classes that will be in our annual recital!! MY GOSH. I'm seriously stressed out and I feel the pressure weighing on me. The only other higher level classes are competition and technique.

We haven't really figured out a Christmas dance for lyrical, but we are learning a combination for Ballet and Jazz. In Ballet we're dancing to the Russian dance song? Lol... that's what we call it. For Jazz, we're dancing to I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. Cute huh? The Ballet dance is so fast and a little hard though, we just need a lot more practice lol. The link to the Russian Nutcracker song is down below.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2ISRMSIyX8


I have a Roku "box" connected to my TV that let's me watch stuff online on the screen. It's pretty cool, and I was looking at a website called Crunchyroll (random?) and I saw the famous Boys Over Flowers Korean drama! I always hear almost everyone talking about it! Like, "Oh that's the necklace that blah gave blah in Boys Over Flowers!" I don't remember their names lol.

I'm thinking um... what's Boys Over Flowers? The fans freaked out, so since I can finally watch it, I will try to figure out what's so great about the series! Be warned, I might come back all girly and say "Boys Over Flowers is so amazing! So kawaii! I love it!!". For some reason, visioning that is a little disturbing for me hahah.



I have to say a couple of the boys look cute, but they look a little gay. Lol I know, Anzu don't judge a book by it's cover! :X

Last week, I found another dancer that inspires me! She truly is an amazing dancer!! Her whole body is so fluid and her toes are like amazing. Her name is Megan Branch and this is my favorite dance of hers! She dances in the most gorgeous way being pretty and soft at one moment, and then she's fierce in the other. Loving you Megan!!




Hope everyone enjoyed my post!
Thank you for reading!


Much love, Anzu xx

Emotions

Hello...

It is 8:00AM as I write this blog post. My grandparents just left with my parents to go down to LA. Minutes later, I started crying and I couldn't stop for at least 20 minutes. Why? Well, it's been a long time since I've had someone to talk to all the time and someone to do stuff with me (my grandma). My mom is always at home with me, but we are not close and she always lounges out in our office. Is it weird? To cry like that? I think I had a mental breakdown... and its been awhile. I haven't really cried in a long time. Whenever I do it, I feel like a spoiled child.

Another reason is because my mom is having a surgery at USC for her collapsed artery in her neck. One is already 100% closed, but the one on the other side we can still save. She has had several strokes before, but I'm happy she is still with me today. It is very serious they say, to drink lots of water and such, but she never did. If they can't save this artery, she can possibly "leave us". This is kinda personal, but this is my diary after all. I'm praying the surgery will be successful! 

Now I'm feeling lonely and depressed; I know after this I will be alone again. Hahah I feel tears forming.. whenever I just think about the word "alone". I'm not truly alone, it just feels that way. All my siblings are older and out of the house down in Southern California. My dad has to work all day; on the days he doesn't work, he doesn't get paid. So the ones close to me I don't see often. But, at least I get to say goodnight to him each day. I don't hang out with my friends because I'm homeschooled. If you didn't know.. I don't have many people my age at my church and I don't really have any "friend friends" at my dance. My only comfort right now is singing, piano, and my blog!

Even though I may not have any followers or maybe not even have any viewers, I'm grateful for being able to just put my feelings out there. This is the first time I've put up a negative post up huh? I try not to, but you know I just need someone to talk to. It may sound weird, and there may be no one to write back. It's kinda dangerous lol. ^_^

This is just a short post that I decided to write on a spur of the moment. No editing done. Thank you for whoever created Blogger! Hope you have a wonderful worry-free day! I think I've calmed down a bit now lol.. the feelings are true though! Remember that!


Blue skies, crystal clear waters, and feeling the sun on my skin always makes me feel happy. =)

Take Care,

Much Love, Anz xx

What Do You Think?

Hello lovely ones!

How is everyone doing? I'm sorry that it's been a few days since I've posted. My weekend was a little busy, and I'm really sad because my grandparents are going back down to LA tomorrow! =( It was fun having someone around that I could talk to because I'm not very close to my mom. I'm more like a daddy's girl lol. My dad works all day long so I only get to see him in the evenings, but some other people have it worse so I shouldn't be complaining...

I'm getting a lot better at my River Flows In You by Yiruma song that I'm practicing. It's fun, but of course it gets frustrating sometimes hahah. Things have been going well lately. The usual I guess. I realize I need to drink a lot more water because I've been breaking out all over on my face! =_= So annoying... This past last week, my acne has been off the roof. I hate it SO much!

Anyways, enough with the complaining! I'm planning to twist/ braid my hair every night so I can get loose curls in the morning. I'm going to experiment lol. I don't know... after reading a chapter of Faster Than A Kiss manga, I wanted hair just like the main character (girl)! My hair's just so boring and always straight! You've probably noticed in a couple of my pictures I posted. I'm planning to grow my hair out, but I'm keeping my bangs.


Faster Than A Kiss





Loose Curls I want to achieve:




I'm seriously in love with Selena Gomez's hair. I want to grow my hair really long too, but not below my waist lol. I think some other celebrities have the same type of hairstyle; I think this hairstyle is especially lovely on her though. ^_^ Please Please PLEASE! If you know how to achieve this hairstyle without heat I'll be forever grateful! >__<


Okay so one topic I came up with is my favorite piece of clothing. I love everything from a cute dress to a pair of comfy boots, but I'd have to say that my favorite piece of clothing are loose sweaters.They are so warm and comfortable, I like off-the shoulder ones best. I need to get more of them because sadly, I only have one. ONE. I want another one of those for Christmas! ='(((




Another one of my YouTube favorites? Bubbiosity!! She is the same person as Bubzbeauty except this is her comedy channel. She hasn't made a comedy video in months, but she finally uploaded one today! I was watching it and its and okay video. It was funny lol.. but kinda disturbing at the same time. I think that's what makes her comedy videos unique! xD Check out her channel!



 

This is her latest video! It is called "How to Get a Girl to Kiss You". It is supposed to be a filler video she says.. I'm glad she's already working on another script! Want to know one of my favorite bubbiosity videos? Wait for it next time!


Enjoy! Hope you guys liked my post!

Take care,

Much love, Anzu xx

Simple

Hello gorgeous ones!


 
Shopping. A girl's competitive "sport". My best friend has always considered it one because it requires a lot of exercise lol. I've always loved shopping, but on the other hand, my mom hates it. She doesn't really like spending money on herself unless she has to. Whenever we get her a birthday, Christmas, or Mother's Day present, she would always get a little mad and a little happy. ^_^

The topic of "shopping" came up because today is Black Friday! Where people shop around the middle of the night to early in the morning. Some people will do whatever it takes to get the best deals. My grandma can't understand why they would want to do such a thing. I mean, I love shopping and all, but I would rather get some sleep. I wish it was more convenient (not having the sales end at 5AM)... I needed to get a lot of stuff. Sigh..

So how was your grand Thanksgiving? Mine was wonderful! We had tons of food.. not that I'm going to brag hahah. We had a friend over too so it was fun. We were watching TV throughout the day; we were watching a series called The Next Great Baker on the TLC channel. It was interesting and it had a lot of drama, it's to be expected on TLC I guess. Afterwards we watched the newest movie of Transformers. I just don't like the new girlfriend! I wish they didn't fire Megan Fox for whatever she did.. I like her a lot better in my opinion.

It is 7:38PM as I type out this blog post; a little late I know. Usually I'd be writing in the morning or early noon. I'm glad that I made it though; I was feeling kind of lazy. =P So, back to the blog. A topic I thought I could write about is what kind of makeup and brushes I use.




Yes, I use the brand Bare Minerals! I have the starter kit and it includes Bare Minerals golden medium SPF 15 Foundation, medium warmth all-over the face color, medium original mineral veil, full flawless face brush, flawless application face brush, maximum coverage concealer brush, a How-To DVD, and a full size brush conditioning shampoo. I LOVE Bare Minerals; no one even realizes I have makeup on. It looks and is totally natural, I'd give it a 4 out of 5 stars. I got the kit on sale, I was so lucky! I just happened to be passing by and looked around in the store. It is $60 for a $174 value. I will list their website down below.


I'm actually not really that interested in the brand names of the products I use. As long as they do a good job, and Bare Minerals just happens to do so. I use a Neutrogena oil-free moisturizer for combination skin before I put on any makeup. I use Maybelline New York Cover Stick for maximum coverage for my acne and other blemishes. It does an okay job. ^_^

I rarely use anything else for makeup; if I did, I'd use some lip balm, lipstick, or lip gloss. I don't like my lips smothered. I don't use that much eyeshadow other than a neutral brown palette and I use the dark brown shadow as an eyeliner. If I were to ever wear mascara, I'd use a clear coat. As you have probably noticed, I like to keep things natural.

Would you guys like to know another one of my YouTube favorites? His name is Sungha Jung; he is 15 years old and a very talented finger guitarist! He is Korean and from South Korea. Sungha already has 2 albums out.. I love him and his dog lol! Please check out his channel! He's amazing and has been playing since very young.






Before you even start the video, his eyes are closed. xD


Hope you enjoyed this post! The video above is Sunga Jung doing a cover of West Sky by Seung Cheol Lee. He barely ever smiles and looks off into space while he's playing, but hahah that's what makes him cute ^_~ Goodnight world.

Going By Fast

Hello lovely ones!

How are my special viewers doing? I am doing fine! It is 10:47AM as I write this blog post entry. I've been thinking lately, hasn't the year of 2011 gone by SO fast? It's not just me right? It's already November! One more month and it'll be December, and after that..?  2012. The year when the world is going to end.. well people say. I love the movie, but if you're seriously asking me, I don't really believe in the prophesy. I don't know what to say.. so what if the calendar made by the Maya Indians ended in 2012? It's just my opinion, and I don't know the details, but does it really matter?

Anyway, the year has gone by really fast.. it will be my grandparents' 59th anniversary this year. Isn't that amazing? My grandmas says it doesn't feel like it has been 59 years; both my grandparents are a little surprised lol.



"Time flies by so fast."


Everyone is just getting older aren't they? I remember when I went to a party and I saw my previous neighbors that lived next to me a number of years ago. This was just recently in October, but they couldn't believe how tall I've grown and blah blah blah. But it's true, I look a lot different from when I was 9 years old. It just shows how we need to live our lives wisely. I sound like Confucius or something hahah xD, but it's very true.

Even my dogs are getting older, but Ginger looks kawaii as always! ^__^ She's sitting in my lap while I'm at the dining table. She always tries to bite Bear or anyone that passes by me though. She's so overprotective lol. "My territory! Grrr..." >_<



She's looking at something.. I don't know what it is though. Lol! I think she was staring at my Grandpa when he past by. Death glare... o_o

Christmas is coming up soon! Is everyone excited? I know I am! It is probably, like most people, my favorite holiday! I will most likely be doing a blog post with a theme of Christmas soon. I'm excited! If you have any ideas, just comment below! Sadly, I still don't have anyone following me or any members for my blog. Maybe, I will get one for Christmas! Yeeyy! That will be on my list. ^_~




Oh, I forgot! Remember my "An Everyday Thing" post? I mentioned my favorite fashion website which is Polyvore. Well, after writing a few more posts, I realized I haven't even told you MY polyvore! If you didn't check out the website, can you check out my polyvore? I just want to see if my fashion sense is any good lol. Here is the link! The layout of the website has changed a lot over time, but my sets are still the same!



Recently, I have been working on a song called River Flows In You by Yiruma. Yiruma is one of my top favorite pianists. And yesh he is Asian! =D His music is just so gorgeous and amazing! I think I have mentioned it before that I play the keyboard. Not so much piano, because I don't have one that's usable. My dad has a really old one, but it needs to be tuned and it's sitting in the garage. He used to play ever since he was a little boy on that very same piano. You could say he's part of my inspiration. =) I just perfected my Fur Elise by Beethoven, it's a fun song to play. The one I'm learning right now is really challenging for me, but it always takes awhile for me to get a song down pat.



River Flows In You by Yiruma, a live performance. ^_^


I hope you have a wonderful day! Good night, good morning, good afternoon! 
Take care,


Much love, Anzu xx

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm back everyone!

My conference meeting with my teacher went well yesterday--- thank God. I was rushing and getting work done throughout the weekend, and my parents brought my grandparents down from Los Angeles on Saturday. So it was a very busy 3 days (including Monday); I'm sorry I couldn't blog during the weekend! My grandparents are staying over at our place for a week because it's going to be Thanksgiving on Thursday! Yeyyy! It'll also be my grandpa's birthday too. Happy birthday!

It is currently 10:41am as I do some school work, write a blog entry, and read some manga. The manga is Yaoi and it is called Electric Hands.. it's actually an okay manga so far. Cute in some places, but overflowing with the cheesy filling. Not actual cheese lol its a metaphor.. I think? Hahaha.... Anyways!

How are you guys planning to spend your Thanksgiving? For those who don't know what Thanksgiving is, originally it was a time to gather around and thank God for all He's done and the feasting was for celebration. My family still thinks that way, but some families are just thankful for other things and look forward to the food. It just depends. ^_^ Ever heard of the Pilgrims and the American Indians? That's where it all started; I will post a link to a website that will give you some brief information.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving_(United_States)


I'm always a junkie for wikipedia; that's where I usually get my essays' info. Shhh...



Cute picture.. I've always loved Snoopy.

Usually, when you see Thanksgiving on tv, it includes a big family and a grand feast. It's not that way for everyone.. some people are alone and some people can't afford all that food.  I'm lucky enough to have a family surrounding me and a turkey or ham on the table each Thanksgiving. But even though some people can't have that, they are always smiling and grateful for what they have. That's a part of Thanksgiving; being joyous and thankful for the year so far. I know some people have heard this a million times, but everyday should be a Happy Thanksgiving. I'm not talking about the food, but about the attitude. I hope you guys have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

 
--------------
11:27AM

Hahahaha I was looking for a Thanksgiving themed video on YouTube and I came across a MichellePhan video with her using hot chocolate as bronzer for her face. Lool! Then I watched some beauty tutorial bloopers and watched her bunny run across the house. I like really want a bunny now.....











Michelle in her Lady Gaga cosplay tutorial.

11:57AM

Sorry I had to step away from my net book for a few minutes. My grandma wanted to read some magazines, and we have TONS of them. Our house is cluttered with them, so I got all the architecture, cooking, art, and garden magazines we had. It was a lot so yes, I'm a little out of it today hehe. Sorry about that!

 

How are you guys? Here I am, talking all about myself, and I haven't even asked how you guys are?! I'm so selfish!! Okay calm down Anzu, calm down....... =_=

We're having a turkey for Thanksgiving this year; you have the option of getting a ham or turkey. I personally want a turkey because for some reason it feels more Thanksgiving... ish? I'm really hard to understand today, I know. Fail. Hope you enjoyed this blog post entry though! I'm just all over the place today! I just need to get into gear again. I will not fail you lol! Here is the wonderful Thanksgiving video!

 

The video's a little long but I hope you like it!

Happy Thanksgiving!


Much love, Anzu xx

I Won't Know

Hey guys!



I'm here to tell you that I might not be able to blog at all this weekend. I know, kind of stupid. I'm studying and getting work samples and essays for a conference with my teacher on Monday. I just found out about it today! Even though my dad told me that he mentioned it to me a couple weeks ago. My ears go deaf at the wrong times! Yes, it's probably because I didn't listen to a word he said... anyways I might just do a small entry like today for tomorrow and the days after. I'll just post a entertaining(ish) video down below.

Gotta jet! (These old weird phrases just make me feel better??) I have to eat lunch before I study some more..

Sorry for the inconvenience! 




This is MichellePhan's latest video!
Check out her channel!



Much love,


Anzu xx

Favorite Candy

I did it again didn't I...


I'm sorry again everyone; I guess I'll just be submitting posts every couple days. You don't mind do you? I still don't know if anyone is really that interested in my posts anyways...but don't worry, I'll still keep blogging! I can be so depressing sometimes huh? Lol.. don't feel bad!!

So the topic for this blog post will be about one of my favorites! I have already told you so many. The list goes on, but I'll just list what I've mentioned so far.


Anzu's Favorites
  1. Pianist
  2. Dancer
  3. Singer
  4. YouTube Singer
  5. YouTube comedian
  6. Creative music video
  7. Kpop group
  8. Korean Hip Hop Artist
  9. Anime
  10. Pets <3
  11. Role model

Pretty good so far right? Well, the "favorite" that we'll be talking about today is my favorite candy. Yum, who doesn't love candy? I think some people just don't eat it because 1) It's unhealthy and 2) It makes you fat :P. Did I hit the nail on the head? If I didn't, please list the other reasons that people have in the comment box below! Lol so... my favorite candies are usually chocolate. Ugh, I just don't know why! They do say chocolate is a girl's best friend, and I am seriously like most girls so I guess the puzzle pieces fit! Actually ice cream is my best friend.. but let's save that for another time hahah.


Favorite Candy:

1) Kit Kat


I love and adore these, ever since I was a little girl! Well, I'm still a little girl, but hahah you know what I mean! ^_~ I can eat these all day long.


2) Whoppers

If I got a big jar of Whoppers for Christmas I'd be SO happy!! T_T My dad thinks these are just gross; he even made the "bleck" sound lol! But, everyone, you just HAVE to know that I like love Whoppers. I should have put Whoppers for number #1 huh? Oh well...



3) Heath Bar



These are my favorite too! With the chocolate coating and the crunchy sweet toffee inside. Mmmm I looove these. I remember, in 4th and 5th grade, one of my friends named Madison would always bring these in her lunch. I never knew what they were or what they tasted like; so Madison let me try them. Fell. In. Love. I'm so grateful for meeting her lol... not just because of the Heath bars! At first I always called them "Health" bars because I never knew there was no "l" in the word!


So those are my top 3 favorite candies! And yes, they all consist of chocolate. I'm a girl, I just can't resist lol. Even though they do bad deeds for my acne T_T. Did you know that you can make a facial mask out of Chocolate? Yes you can! -^_^- (Idea is from Bubzbeauty, I will post up the video at the end.)

It may be bad to consume because of the stuff added into it, but if you just use the plain cocoa it is actually good for you! But, yes, the cocoa would taste bitter with nothing in it; that's the only down part. So, instead of consuming it, why don't you use it in a facial mask? There are many different antioxidants in chocolate! The chocolate masks in the store are really expensive so you can make your own! You wouldn't believe how many stuff you can use to make your own DIY masks.


So this time, I have only one topic for you; I hoped you enjoy it though! It was fun to type about something so heavenly delicious. <3 Here is the video tutorial on how to make your own Homemade DIY Chocolate Mask. Have fun with it!




Take care!

Much Love,

Sorry!

I'm so sorry!!

I didn't eat your homemade cookie, but I'm so sorry for not making a blog post yesterday! Please forgive me :'( I was being lazy and sick that I couldn't even post a few sentences up.


Well, my cold is almost gone and I feel a lot better than I did the past couple days. So grateful for medicine... and tissues ^_^. So how has my wonderful viewers been doing?? I'm okay, I still haven't eaten breakfast and it is already 11:15am! These bad habits of mine... my laziness is in full effect.

Yesterday, for a couple hours, I was looking for a Christmas song/carol to sing for my church. I had my best friend help me make the list smaller; I couldn't have done it better without her. :') I picked four songs from Hayley Westenra's Winter Magic album; who knew she had a Christmas album?! Well, I guess all artists do... anyways! Here are the songs I picked (I still have to pick one song from this list):

  • Silent Night
  • Carol of the Bells
  • The Little Road of Bethlehem
  • Peace Shall Come



You can listen to the album here:

While I was looking for Christmas songs to sing, my parents were out getting groceries. When they came back home, they had gotten me a cute, furry pair of pajama bottoms! They are light green with white polka dots; I really fell in love with them. My mom got a black leopard printed one; she says that she got me the green one because it looked more "youthful". "You are youth so you get this one" was what my mom said. I just laughed lol.




Sorry if the picture is blurry!


Okay, so I have to tell you about one of my favorite music videos! It is so unique, brilliant, and just so cool! It has pretty music, a pretty girl, and jellybeans!! Yes, the whole animation of this music video is made entirely out of jellybean art. It is done picture by picture and it took over two years to make the video. Isn't that just amazing?! *_* I will post the video up and put in the link for the making of the video below. Hope you enjoy!


Oh and PS,

I will make a Thanksgiving post sometime this week so please look out for it! Thanks ^_~

TABLO

Everyone! Hey!!

I am officially a new fan of Tablo! I love him, his music, his lyrics, his life. I love it all! What you see above is a picture of the first part of his album. At first, I'm thinking, "Must be some stereotypical Korean pop star." Wrong! Tablo is a unique Korean hip hop artist that comes up with his own lyrics and has his own style of music! His rapping is amaazing lol and his voice is so captivating. I just want to say that Tablo, my friend, your music makes me smile. ^_^

Okay, so you have to check him out! I will post one of his music videos at the end of this post! It was hard to pick which one to put out, but I managed! It is 11:30am as I write this blog post; did you like my Veterans Day post that I posted yesterday? I hope so! Unfortunately everyone, I caught a horrible cold.. it's been awhile since I've gotten sick lol. I caught it yesterday, when I was soaking in a hot bath. But, I laid in their too long haha and I got the chills. Yeah, yeah, it's my fault . -__-

So for breakfast, I made a huge pot of homemade chicken noodle soup. It was de-li-cious! In my opinion lol.. my parents ate it too so I guess it was edible. =P Now I'm sitting on the couch blowing my nose away and watching Bear sleep; he's just too cute!! Hehe... Don't worry everyone, I will still keep posting!



I am also listening to Tablo (the artist I mentioned a few paragraphs ago); I think he's my new favorite artist now. His music is so addicting... I reaally want his album noww! That's going to be on my Christmas list!! *_* Korean rapping is just so awesome lol. (Tablo is on the right)




Oh guys, I have to tell you! Yesterday I tried this olive oil and yogurt hair mask and a yogurt facial mask. It does wonders! The hair mask makes your hair shiny, super smooth, and really soft. The facial mask is just made out of plain yogurt; you can add a teaspoon of honey for a better smell and other benefits; it makes your skin so smooth, radiant, soft, and less bumpy. It also helps your acne (if you have any) A LOT. The idea is from Bubzbeauty, I will post up the tutorial tomorrow.

Here are the recipes:

Yogurt Facial Mask
  • 1 tablespoon natural plain yogurt
  • (optional) 1 teaspoon natural organic honey
Apply the tablespoon of plain yogurt onto your face as you would with a regular facial mask from the store. You can apply it with a clean foundation brush, your hands, or another utensil. Let it set on your face for 20-25 minutes or until the yogurt dries. If you're using the organic honey, it works the same way, just mix it really well with the yogurt before you put it on your face. If you are allergic to any of these products, please do not use this mask.



Yogurt and Olive Oil Hair Mask
  • 2 tablespoons natural plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Mix the two ingredients very well and apply to your clean, dry hair, focusing on the ends. The ends are the driest part of your hair, vulnerable to split ends. Comb the mixture through your hair with your fingers, make sure you get it throughout all of your hair. Tie your hair into a bun/pony tail let it set for about 30 minutes. Rinse it out with lukewarm water; you may shampoo and condition your hair afterwards if you wish.


I usually apply the hair mask, and then I apply the facial mask right after, let both masks set, and take a shower. I wash off my facial mask and wash my hair. I'd dry my hair with a towel till it's not soaking wet, and I'd let it air dry. I never use a blow dryer anymore because my hair is really sensitive to it, and I don't use hair straighteners and curling irons either.




Hope you guys will find these masks useful! They really work! Unless you're allergic to the ingredients. If so, don't use these masks!! It's a really big warning guys. That's all that I have for you today everyone! I hope you enjoyed this blog post; I hope you have a wonderful day! Here is the music video I promised you! It's a little violent, but barely. Enjoy!




Much love,


Anz xx
