life lately 6/2017

Hello there ~ I'm currently enjoying a cup of coffee while writing this post. I don't remember if I mentioned here or not but I didn't get accepted to any of the schools I applied so for now I don't have anything planned for the upcoming fall. Anyhow here's what I've been up to during the month of June. 

I've been working a lot. I've had both morning shifts and evening shifts and both have pluses and minuses. I like morning shifts because then I actually have time to do stuff after work but I honestly can't handle waking up at 4AM. Luckily it's summer so it's already bright but my body and mind can't keep up with more than 3 morning shifts in a row. And I need to take a nap everyday. That's why I'm a bit scared how I can manage 5 mornings in a row in August...

I like evening shifts because I get to sleep a lot but the fact that the evening shift ends at 11PM makes it difficult for me to do anything else than sleep and work. If I have many evening shifts in a row I don't have time to open the laptop or to actually do anything tbh. Because I prefer sleeping as late as possible in the mornings. Why get up at 8AM when I can sleep until 11AM?

On my day offs I haven't really been blessed with nice weathers. It's always warm and sunny when I'm at work and gets gloomy and rainy when I'm not working. Just my luck. On my day offs I just like to catch up with my sleep and dramas. And just chill with the cats and dogs at home.

Sometimes I might go to a cafe. Like this one day when I was spending quality time with my mom. OMG that mango cheesecake was so delicious ! 

Sometimes I go to a walk with the dogs. I took a photo of this dandelion before my dog ruined it and the fluffy stuff was floating everywhere :Dd

Still keeping up with my bullet journal ! I'm getting better and better week by week. At least I think so. Anyhow I used this weekly layout for the whole month of June and I really liked it. It's so simple yet still not too simple. 

That's all for the month of June. I'll end this post with a black & white selfie I've also posted on my instagram. Follow me on instagram for more quality photos like these ones in this post. How was the month of June in your case? Is it warm and nice where you live?

May-June Haul (Bearel, Cosmetic Love, Sokos Emotion)

Hi there ~ It's been a good while since the last time I updated but don't worry - the blog (and blogger) is still alive and kicking ! I've just been busy with work as usual and watching dramas as usual. After work I don't have energy to do anything at all and I don't want to take any stress about my blog. You might have noticed that the blog updates every now and then - which is when I feel like it.

Anyhow it's already mid-July and I've yet to wrap up past two months here in my blog... So it's time to post what I've purchased during past two months. So here is my May-June Haul :) 

First off is my haul from Bearel. It has fast become one of my favorite k-beauty online stores because of its fast shipping and the fact that it's a Finnish online store I don't have to worry about customs and stuff like that.

NEOGEN Real Flower Calendula Cleansing Water (300 ml) 21,90 € - I've been using this one as a makeup remover as well as a toner and I like it quite much. It removes my waterproof mascara quite well before I continue with oil cleanser. I've got about 1/4 left and I'm not sure if I should reorder this or try something else.

BENTON Honest TT Mist (40 ml) 14,90 € - I ordered this one just because I needed a new mist and I heard good about this. Honestly I don't know what to think about this. First of all I don't like the packaging at all because it's packed in a similar way like some BB Creams and the spray system isn't to my liking at all. However I do like the actual product but because of the spray I don't really like using this on top of makeup. 

TONYMOLY Panda's Dream Eye Patch 2,50 € - I ordered two of these just because my holy grail ones from Missha were sold out. I've so far used one pair and I don't know if I like these or not. One thing's for sure - they're not even half as good as the Missha ones.

MIZON Snail Repair Eye Cream (15 ml) 9,95 € - My holy grail eye cream and it's so cheap also. I think this one is my 3rd or 4th tube? Will keep repurchasing this until I find something else I want to try.

ETUDE HOUSE AC Clean Up Mild Cushion #Light Beige (14 g) 18,32 $ - I've been wanting to try this one out for a good while now. I like the product quite a lot but I don't like the puff it comes with. The puff kinda makes it apply uneven and crumbly. So I like to use the puff from my Troiareuke cushion to apply this. I'm going to do a review of this one when I get myself to take the photos :'Ddd

INNISFREE No-Sebum Blur Primer (25 ml) 12,62 $ - I needed a new primer because I (finally) ran out of my previous one from Lumene. I've been wanting to try out the blur line from Innisfree so I bought this one. So far I like it and it helps my makeup to apply smoother and stay on longer than any other primers I've tried before. 

INNISFREE It's Real Squeeze Mask SET (15 sheet masks) 45,60 $ - I think this set was 40% or 50% off when I bought it. Otherwise I wouldn't have bought it because it's quite damn pricey set when it's sold on normal price. Currently it's unavailable but I'm giving you the link anyways. I like these masks a lot and they sits on my face really well :) I like to buy sheet masks in sets when they're on sale because that way they're cheaper.

That's it for the Korean beauty section and now rest are bought from physical stores in Finland. Needless to say they're not Korean cosmetics because we don't (yet) have any physical k-beauty stores here in Finland. Maybe someday...? I don't remember the prices for these because I threw the receipts away before writing the post... :D

BEAUTYBLENDER - My previous one retired and got broken because I've used it so much. So it was time to buy a new one. This one is my 3rd one I think? I don't use anything else but this to apply foundations and BB Creams.

CHLOÉ Love Story EdT (30 ml) - I bought this one during the sales and I got 25% off. I've been wanting to buy this one for ages ever since I had a tester of this. But because it's quite pricey I waited and waited until I could afford to buy it even from sales. I think this was around 50€ even after the discount?

L'OREAL Nude Magique Dewy Glow Foundation Cushion #01 Rose Porcelain (14,6 g) - I decided to repurchase this one because it's the best cushion out of the ones I can find here in Finland. It's not as good as Korean ones when it comes to coverage but the shade fits my skin tone quite well. 

LUMENE Nude Perfection Fluid Foundation #1 Classic Beige (30 ml) - I finally finished the one I got from LivBox ages ago and I've loved using this one. I mainly use this one to work because this one is more "skin like" and long-lasting compared to cushions. And I don't really like fixing my makeup at work so that's another reason why I prefer to use this one to work. On busy mornings though I still use cushions more than this because they're just faster and I'm not a morning person.

MONTAGNE JEUNESSE Cool Eyes Eye Patches (2 x 2 Patches) - I found these eye patches so I decided to give them a try. So far I've only tried the Anti-Shadow ones and they were quite nice. I keep these in the refrigerator as it suggests so these are so nice to use when the eyes are tired and puffy. But these also doesn't beat the Missha ones I love. I like that there are patches enough for two use inside the pouch.

life lately 5/2017

Hi there ~ It's been a while since my previous post. I just haven't found any time to update as I started a new job in May and I've been so busy with that one. For the summer I'm working at a grocery store as a cashier but compared to my previous part-time job now I have at least 20 hours in a week. Last week I had almost 40 hours and I was so tired I just wanted to sleep after work.

In addition to that I also was studying for the university entrance exams and now that's finally over ! I still have to wait 10 more days until I know if I get accepted to any schools or not. That's it for the life update and now it's time to update you guys more on what I did during the month of May. If you follow me on instagram you might have seen these already.

In the beginning of May I went to Korea House (once again) with my friend. I'm drooling so much as I'm looking at the photo of my food :D I had chicken bulgogi (닭불고기) and OMG it was sooo good. I also ordered some extra kimchi because I love kimchi. That day was so sunny and warm so we decided to walk a bit. I must have looked like a tourist taking photos of the Helsinki Cathedral but I had never seen it up so close even tho I live so near Helsinki... :D

I love the Finnish spring/summer when it's getting warm and everything is starting to bloom. I really was born into a wrong country LOL there's nothing I hate more than cold, dull and dark weather - which is Finland 99% time of the year.

On the Mother's Day we went to O'Learys for a family dinner. My sister works there so we got 40% discount thanks to her and OMG the food was so good. I devoured everything and I still would have had more space for that ice cream. 

Yup, it snowed in the beginning of May and I'm not even joking ! It luckily melted away soon and the spring officially arrived and so did summer too. As I've been working and the morning shifts at my work starts at 6.10AM or 8.30AM (Sundays) I have to get up at 4AM. If it wasn't for the summer and the fact that it's already bright that time I wouldn't be able to get up that early. Luckily I'm working for the summer only because my body and mind honestly can't wake up at 4AM for more than 3 days in a row. And after that I need to recharge myself with 12+ hours of sleep.

And the highlight of the month - watching k-drama after a long time ! As I was busy with studying I didn't really have time to watch anything so I started to binge watch as soon as I had any extra time :D Tunnel was soooo good ! I highly recommend it if you're into time-travel, psychological crime stuff and comedy.
