5 Miscellaneous things on my wishlist

In no particular order here are some of the things on my wishlist that I've been looking at for a very long time that I think I need in my life haha!

these two I need for my planner illustrations and stamps they say it has really good quality and nice color selection...

First time I saw this camera on youtube what I like about it is that big front selfie lcd screen.

I really need a new replacement battery so I can use my Nikon once again whenever I point and shoot during travel and save my cellphone's battery life...

Sumikko Gurashi goodies- my newly found obsession I almost went cray at Tokyo Otaku Mode Premium Shop haha! they're so adorable!

Witches of East End Season 1 and 2 | Tv Show Review

Source: Imbd
Category: Drama, Fantasy
Runtime: 60 min
Episodes: 13
Creator: Maggie Friedman
Stars: Julia OrmondJenna Dewan TatumRachel Boston |See full cast and crew »

Centers on the adventures of a mother and her two adult daughters, both of whom unknowingly are their family's next generation of witches, who lead seemingly quiet, uneventful modern day lives in Long Island's secluded seaside town of North Hampton. When one of the daughters becomes engaged to a young, wealthy newcomer, a series of events forces her mother to admit to her daughters they are, in fact, powerful and immortal witches. Written by Lifetime

My thoughts:
Season 1 started off with Freya's engagement party,her dream, getting to know all different characters,their relationship with one another and family life. It was pretty nice the whirlwind type of romance. The neverending cycle of red string of fate. The interesting mix of love and revenge.

Season 2 was pretty crazy! I have mix feelings whether or not to trust Frederick (freya's twin) he seems like a shady character and as the story unfolds he reveals that he's there on a mission

Semi Spoiler alert!

the king's spirit vessel is inside Frederick looking for a host.

Wendy who is careless at first with her lifespan is now trying to tread lightly (sort of).Dash became this very shady person like a wolf in sheep's clothing. Killian's always seems to be in danger! and the plot twist in the finale is truly heart and soul wrenching! Darkness is rising!

Oh men I don't really know how to feel about this season so many emotions,twist and turns, ups and downs roller coaster ride. I hope they'd make season 3 this show has so much potential! I love the characters they all started to grow on me.Overall 4.5 out of 5 stars! once I started watching this I can't seem to take my eyes off to the tv and just try to watch/marathon the entire season on netflix haha!

My thoughts:

It seems like I'm hooked with Bo Young's character I watched most of the shows she's in haha I think I first saw her in running man then I watched Oh my Ghostess and so on...

The conference near the end was priceless! this story is quite predictable but heart warming and made me cry tears of joy! although it can be really cute and annoying at the same time!

This is a nice family movie to watch, some values and wisdom, quite funny too.Overall 3 out of 5 stars it's okay go have a good time ^^

Products I use to prevent and get rid of pimples/acne

Note: I have dry to normal,sensitive skin with a slight tendency of pimples/acne around my jaw area and sometimes on my cheeks and forehead. Dry areas usually on my cheeks.

Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Control 3 in 1 foaming wash

I used 2 bottles of this product way back 2011-2013 I think and it looks like the bottle went through some packaging changes anyway whenever I used this product before it was very effective! dried my pimples overnight and prevented pimples/breakouts stuff like that it has a strong salicylic smell to it and my skin felt dry and tight afterwards.

Anyway after I finished my second bottle of Clean & Clear I decided to discontinue using it to try some other products out there that's more suitable to my needs and that's when I discovered this brand Yardley it's very popular apparently even my mom knows it way back in the day I didn't know til we saw this at the local grocery store Publix,Walmart and Dollar store sells them so yey! it's affordable and lasts for a very long time! I use this on my face and all over my body as well I stock up on this product and store it in my closet and drawers since it has a nice smell things won't smell old haha! What I love about this product is that it has some oatmeal in it which helps dry my pimples/acne and since I got dry skin that tends to itch sometimes this relieves that sort of feeling. It gently exfoliates also has almond in it as well so that's a plus!

I'm also currently using as you might have already seen these products in my How I cleanse my face post.

Missha Citron Cleansing foam (day time)

It has a nice citrus scent,refreshing but it can be a bit tight and drying afterwards.

St. Ives Green tea scrub (night time)

Clears blackheads and calms redness.
Oil-free salicylic acne medication.
100% natural exfoliants.
Sulfate free and paraben free.
Hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, and non-comedogenic.

Very gentle on the skin, after washing it off with water my skin felt soft and not dry.Great green tea and salicylic scent mix.

This facial brush for me is just an added bonus I bought this one at amazon it's so soft! like bunny soft and affordable too! definitely good to have as it gives my cleansing foam/scrub a boost.

 As for my moisturizer I use Nature Republic 92% Aloe Vera Soothing Gel. At first I didn't really like this product since it feels weird on my face like after it dries when I touched my face it would rub off and starts peeling so when that happens and before that happens I exfoliate and I know I should exfoliate haha!

It's really good all year round I especially love it during fall season since that's the first time it finally grew on me It has a cooling effect,clean aloe vera scent,very nice but it does contain some alcohol in it incase you're sensitive to that kind of stuff. What I also love about this product is that you can use it all over your body,face and hair so versatile and affordable!

it looks like this very transparent

So yeah that's basically it for now I hope you find this post helpful and try to give it a shot some time soon..I highly recommend these products and I'm no way sponsored to do this haha! ^_^

What's up 2016?!

Hey guys! So 2016 is the year of  the fire Monkey according to the chinese experts I watched on tv...Lucky color Blue and Pantone selected Serenity and Rose Quartz (blue and pink). to be the color of the year! “a harmonious pairing of inviting shades that embody a mindset of tranquility and inner peace.”

I know it has been awhile since I actually posted any storytime,updates ,book reviews stuff like that...Since it's still the holiday season I've been binge watching a lot of tv-movie shows and haven't done much really haha! I haven't posted my thoughts about them yet...the recent ones at least. Oh last year I upgraded my phone from Blackberry Z10 to LG G4 so far so good I'm still exploring it and learning the ropes...I love android and I miss it so much! I downloaded a bunch of stuff in it too like I finally played Love! Live School Idol Festival woohoo! I noticed there are no more two years contract and that you have to pay for your phone this time around which is kinda sad since before it used to be free but anyway I managed to snagged a nice discount for our family phones so it ain't so bad still have to pay for it for two years though anyway,  how was your new year's celebration? I hope you had a lot of fun...we ate a lot of food yesterday,played some board games,socialize/ catch up with friends. And then I finally started using my new happy planner yas!

Bookish resolutions:

1.Renew Library card
2.Listen to more audiobooks
3.Reduce TBR pile
4.Avoid buying new books instead go borrow it from the library first
5. Read 50 books and always keep these resolutions in mind haha!

That's all for now.How about you do you have any resolutions?

P.S My family and I went to the Pier to watch the New Year Fireworks Display watch it down below  Enjoy! ^_^
