Life Lately 7/2017

Hello there ~ Time to start wrapping up the month of July. During July I had a lot of workdays and most of them were evening shifts so I didn't really have time to do anything on the days I went to work. I'm the kind of person who prefers sleeping as long as possible in the mornings. My evening shift starts at 2.30PM so I sleep until 11AM at least on those days. And when I have 4-5 workdays in a row I don't do anything but go to work and come back home.

That's why I love to enjoy my off days ! On my payday I met up with my sister and we went to Iso Omena shopping center for some good food. First we went to eat at The Lucky Bastard. I got The Kevin Bacon and some fries. After eating we did some window shopping and got super sweet milkshakes from Kitty's Milkshake Bar. The one I chose was Toffee and Fudge Blast. I totally recommend both places so definitely check them out if you're in Espoo area :D

Few days later I met up with my sister once again. We had planned to go to the gym but my the finger recognition system didn't recognize my finger and we couldn't get in. So we went for a walk in a middle of nowhere. Not really. It was some kind of popular jogging path near some grocery store. 

Another day meeting up with my sister LOL ! I'm starting to suspect that I don't have any friends anymore? :'Ddd Anyhow my sister came to visit and we grilled some food and it was pretty good. Would've been better if there was bigger variety of food. We had just few sausages and beef. And I cooked some rice because it just felt boring.

Long time no cat photos ! During the summer our cats love to hang out at our front yard. They love to sniff the air like Pepe is sniffing in the photos. Besides that they also love sleeping. All around the year. But who doesn't love sleeping?

Some dog noses as well :) 

I've been watching Show Me The Money 6th season and I'm loving it. I've watched almost all episodes (so far) without subtitles because I'm too impatient to wait for the subs. And I don't want to get spoilers from everywhere while waiting for the subs. 

And maybe the biggest thing in July - I bought a new camera ! I bought Canon EOS M10 after comparing the prizes and functions of few camera options I had. Actually this is my very first own camera so I'm super happy I bought it. I'm still studying and learning how to use it properly but most of the photos in this post were taken with the camera. I hope that my blog photos will be better quality soon :) 

No one has asked about my bullet journal journey but I still want to update you guys. I still love bullet journaling and I think I'm getting better and better at it day by day. Above are two of my favorite spreads as well as my washi tape page and my pen test page. I love to test all my pens I use at the back of my journal so I can see how they acts before I start to use them.

[REVIEW] Troiareuke Troipeel H+ Cushion

Hello there ~ It's been ages since the last time I've posted a proper review on my blog. On today's post I'm reviewing Troipeel H+ Cushion and it became one of my favorites as soon as I first applied it on my face. I've seen youtubers such as Joan Kim and Edward Avila raving about this brand and telling me how good Troiareuke products are. As the brand is quite damn pricey I went with the safest and cheapest option I had - a cushion. Without further ado - let's get straight into the review !

May-June 2017 Empties

Hello there ~ Today I'm here to share my empties from the past two months. This time there are quite many products so I'll just start immediately. As usual if I've featured a product on my previous empties I'll just link you to that post instead of writing about the same stuff again.

ETUDE HOUSE Soon Jung pH 5,5 Relief Toner (80 ml) - I really liked this one a lot. It's super gentle, barely has any scent to it and it just all in all was really good. Definitely need to order a normal sized version soon. Would totally recommend to people with sensitive skin and to everyone actually. Rate: 5/5

KLAIRS Rich Moist Soothing Serum (80 ml) - I've featured this one on my January empties :)

SKINFOOD Peach Sake Pore BB-Cream (30 ml) - I received this last year from Q-Depot and I've done a full review on this BB Cream. Click here to read my full review. As I mentioned on the review I found this BB cream was tad too light for me and I hoped for a bit higher coverage. I didn't really use it as you can see from the photo. I was concentrating on finishing other products that I had opened earlier. And when I wanted to use it again I noticed it had passed the final date in April so I have to throw it away. Rate: 4-/5

3x COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch (24 patches) - I've featured these on my January empties as well. 

THE FACE SHOP Oil Blotting Paper (70 sheets) - I don't really see any differences between blotting papers from various brands. I just choose what's cheapest but has the most sheets. Blotting papers are good if I can get all the extra oil away with 1-2 sheets. I think these were pretty good. Rate: 4½/5

MISSHA Deep Sea Water Firming Eye Patch (2 patches) - I've featured these on my March empties :)

ETUDE HOUSE Loving Days Fragrance Mist #Blooming Love (100 ml) - I bought this one from Seoul last year. See my Korea Trip 2016 haul here. I can't believe it's been over an year since I came back. I can't believe this lasted for an year in my use. I really liked using this and I liked the scent a lot too. As I started using this one while I still was in Seoul it reminds me of the trip. Rate: 5/5

PALMOLIVE Naturals Argan Oil & Magnolia Shower Cream (250 ml) - I've mentioned multiple times here on my blog but I'm saying it again. My only criteria when choosing a body wash product is if it's cheap and if it smells good. Palmolive products usually combines those two so yay for that. This one isn't the best smelling shower cream I've tried but this one also has really nice scent to it. Rate: 4½/5

THE FACE SHOP Rice Water Brights Lip & Eye Makeup Remover (250 ml) - This one I also bought from Seoul. And it lasted for a year. Pretty well for a makeup remover I'd say. It was about time to finish it because otherwise it would've gone bad soon. Anyhow I don't remember liking that much about this product as it didn't really remove waterproof mascara that well and I think it stung my eyes every time I used it. Not recommending this one. Rate: 2/5

GARNIER Mineral Invisible Anti-Perspirant (50 ml) - I've mentioned this one on my February empties :)

AVÈNE Thermal Spring Water (150 ml) - I've mentioned this one on my March empties :)

MIZON Snail Repair Eye Cream (15 ml) - This one has slowly become my HG eye cream. I've used one tube last year and used other products in the middle and came back to this one again. I just like it. I don't really know if it's helpful for my dark circles but it's really good at moisturizing and repairing the eye/lip area. I use this one on my lips as well and it helps prevent my lips from getting too chapped. Rate: 5/5

BEAUTYBLENDER - I don't know how long you are supposed to use one BeautyBlender but I might or might not have used this one for one year and a bit more. I used my previous one for almost 1,5 years so... I'd say you can use it until it breaks as long as you make sure to clean and dry it well. Already repurchased a new one. Which is my 3rd one. I'm never going back to using my fingers when applying liquid type makeup. Rate: 5/5

TONYMOLY Panda's Dream Eye Patch (2 Patches) - As my faves from Missha (see above) were sold out I had to try out something else this time. These aren't even half as good as the Missha ones in terms of me liking them. I guess the cute packaging makes up for it? These aren't bad but they're not anything special either. Just so so. I bought two so I still have the other one left. Rate: 3/5

LUMENE Matifying & Pore Minimizing Primer (20 ml) - I don't even remember when I bought this one but it was about time to finish it. At one point I didn't use primers at all but then I continued to use it starting from May when I started my current summer job. Because let's face it - primer does make the makeup last longer and smoother. My biggest problem with this one was that I wasn't sure if it clogged my pores or not. That's why I stopped using primers for a while. But after I continued to use I realized it didn't clog my pores this time. Rate: 4/5

LUMENE Nude Perfection Fluid Foundation #1 Classic Beige (30 ml) - I got this one from LivBox ages ago - in February 2015 to be more specific - so it was about time to finish this one. Considering this can be used 18 months after opening I should've thrown it away already in August 2016 but I didn't see any problems using this. It didn't smell different and didn't seem it had gone bad. So I just continued using it until May. And I recently bought a new one because I like how it lasts for the whole day and I don't need to fix my makeup that much during the day. Only downside is that it doesn't have any kind of SPF in it. Rate: 5-/5


That's it for my May-June 2017 Empties. How many products you finish usually in a month? Comments are welcomed :)
