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
