My vacation- Western Caribbean Cruise (picture heavy)

Hey everyone, I just got back from my vacation last week and unpacking has been taking up all my time as well as work. It sucks when you have to jump right back into work when you get back when your mind is still in vacation mode!

So i took my family, my uncle, aunt and my grandmother on a cruise since they've never been before. We went on the Carnival line and our ship was called the Carnival Liberty. It was a total of 8 days to the Western Caribbeans. The port was in Miami, so we had to fly there. The 3 port of calls were Cozumel Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

Had a lot of fun, i love cruises!

Haulage for the face

I am so bad with updating on blogger lately! Ends up i put multiple random topics on each post. I'll try to stop my bad habit next time hahaha.

My Package from Paula's Choice has arrived!!! After reading reviews from a fellow blogger, i just had to try these out! As you all know, i'm always on a lookout for different face products, as i don't exactly have a face routine that works for me and that i can stick to so i'm always trying new things.

I purchased the CLEAR set in regular strength that contains a lightweight non foaming cleanser, a toner that contains 2% salicylic acid and the third step is the acne fighting treatment that contains 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. It does not come with a moisturizer which you are supposed to use after the third step, and i didn't know which one to buy so i purchased Serums instead.
I got one call "Skin recovery super antioxidant concentrate serum" and i loveeeee this stuff.  It comes out like oil form and once you spread it across your face, there is this warming feeling and it absorbs really fast.
I also got a serum from the RESIST line called "super antioxidant serum". You are supposed to use this only at night and i've only used it twice so i can't do a proper review on it yet.
Lastly, i bought the "Clearly Remarkable Skin Lightening Gel" also from the RESIST line. It says it helps lighten brown spots and acne scars so i wanted to try it. I have not used this once yet, mainly because they said it's not good to use it after the CLEAR 3 step face routine thing because the gel has 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid and it's not good to mix that with salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide because your skin will have a temporary brown stain and it may result in dry and irritated skin. And since i want to keep using the CLEAR line consistently for some results, i have no idea when i should start using the lightening gel since that also you can only see results if used consistently.

I have been using the CLEAR line for about a week now, and my skin has become really really dry and tight :( I really wanted this to work for me so i'm going to give it another week. I use the 3 steps, and then i apply the serum, and after that i apply one of my own face moisturizers. My skin is so dry, it's starting to peel at the corner of my nose and the corner of my lips. I don't know what i'm doing wrong, i ope it works for me.

So with every purchase, you can pick 3 samples.

I picked the hydralight moisture infusing lotion, barrier repair moisturizer and moisture boost hydrating treatment cream. Haven't tried these yet though.

Also they included a pack of blotting papers for me =) So sweet!

My girlfriend has also came back from her Eurotrip, and we had dinner together and talked for a while. I miss being able to talk about anything and everything with someone and not even realizing that time had flown by. The sweetheart picked me up some souvieners from Venice. Thanks Cindy!

She got me this cute fridge magnet shape as a postal stamp and a snow globe. I love snow globes!!!! Seriously i can stare at them all day.

Last random thing of the day. I went to The Taste of Lawrence with the bf during the weekend and we got this super awesome yummy pineapple drink. They take out the insides, blends it, and then pour it back into the pineapple and you drink it just like that! So yummy. I didn't take a picture of the food we ate because we devoured it too quickly, but i did remember tot take a picture of this =)

If i don't update in the following 2 weeks, i am sorry! I am going on a CRUISE!!!!!!! I'm leaving Saturday morning and coming back the next Saturday! Super excited. Will bring back many pictures =)

Just because you are nice to me, doesn't mean i'm all that important to you. You don't treat me like family and i'm never going to be first priority.
No one has ever treated me as #1 before, so i guess i'm never going to be worth it.
I guess that says a lot about me as a person.

Mother Nature's Gift

It's that time of the month again. Yes. THAT time of the month. Yup, i know you girls feel my pain. I was at work, and 4 hours into work i started having awful awful awful cramps! My knees became weak, i was breaking out in cold sweat, i couldn't stand straight and came to the point where i was rolled up into a ball for nearly 2.5 hours. No one was able to drive me home at the time, and i stayed on the chair in fetal position for literally that long. I've never had such painful cramps in such a long time, and i just had to forget my advil today :(
Thank goodness the boyfriend was super sweet, he took the subway all the way home from downtown just to go home and get his car to drive me home. Though he wasted an hour doing that, he was suuuuuper sweet today and i am sooooooo lucky to have him <3

Vomit all you want guys! I am still in awe! LOL
