Nurse Jackie | Tv series Review

A drug-addicted nurse struggles to find a balance between the demands of her frenetic job at a New York City hospital and an array of personal dramas.

Creators: Liz Brixius, Evan Dunsky, Linda Wallem

Stars: Edie Falco, Merritt Wever, Paul Schulze | See full cast & crew »

My thoughts:

I watched this series over at Netflix and Yes all 7 seasons are available over there for the longest time and now I finally finished it woohoo!

This is the first time I watched about an experienced nurse who is also a drug addict .The characters grew into me over time they all have lovely personalities and great sense of humor and truly in healthcare you'll encounter all sorts of people. The scenarios are very realistic and so are how doctors treat nurses/ each other.

My favorite character is Zoey then Thor,Jackie and Eddie. Zoey is very bubbly,young and energetic.I like Thor's queer and professional personality while Jackie is your experience been there,done that but will do some of those prohibited stuff anyway since I'm a grown up and can handle myself but in all honesty she can't by all means the struggle is real when it comes to her being clean. As for Eddie he's fool enough to risk it all to Jackie til the very end.

Characters that are okay for me would be Dr. Coop and O hara. Coop's still learning the ropes while O hara would be your favorite out of the 2 haha! and I love her cameo near the end.

Characters that are quite okay but sorta dislike would be Jackie's eldest daughter Grace and her Husband Kevin and I don't really like Dr. Roman still have no idea why she's a doctor Or on this show to be honest.

As realistic and bittersweet this series was especially the ending overall it's 3 out of 5 stars. If you know a druggy or a junkie let them watch this or if you wanna know the flip side of things watch this.!

Tosowoong Mask & Innisfree Ampoule Intense Bb Cushion 1st Impressions

Additional thoughts about Innisfree Ampoule Intense Bb Cushion:

I use this product a couple more times after I filmed the video and actually if I just push the puff 10 times into the product, spread it all over my face evenly with a light hand  with or without a face primer it gave off a natural flawless finish still light coverage a no makeup kind of look. It didn't accentuate the dry patch on my right cheek. I still need to use a concealer under my eyes and some areas that needs more work. And then an all day makeup fixer to lock it all in plus an aloe mist just in case for added moisture whenever I feel dry it last a bit longer than usual.

The drama tells the story of Kim Joo Won (Hyun Bin), an arrogant and eccentric CEO who maintains the image of seeming perfection, and Gil Ra Im (Ha Ji Won), a poor and humble stuntwoman whose beauty and body are the object of envy amongst top actresses. Their accidental meeting, when Joo Won mistakes Ra Im for actress Park Chae Rin, marks the beginning of a tense, bickering relationship, through which Joo Won tries to hide a growing attraction to Ra Im that both confuses and disturbs him. To complicate matters further, a strange sequence of events results in them swapping bodies.

Hyun Bin as Kim Joo Won
Ha Ji Won as Gil Ra Im
Yoon Sang Hyun as Choi Woo Young / Oska (Joo Won's cousin)
Kim Sa Rang as Yoon Seul
Lee Philip as Im Jong Soo
Lee Jong Suk as Han Tae Ssun
Yoo In Na as Im Ah Young
Kim Sung Oh as Kim Sung Woo (Joo Won's secretary)
Park Joon Geum as Moon Boon Hong
Choi Yoon So as Kim Hee Won (Joo Won's sister)

My Thoughts:

Little Mermaid and Alice in Wonderland with a twist although the main highlight of this retelling was the little mermaid also near the end it was funny how Kim Joo Won mentioned about other fairytale stories when asked by Gil Ra Im.

I actually watched this series before when it first came out but then I dunno I forgot about it,got irritated I guess or just was not getting it like what am I watching?! haha until eventually I gave it another shot and try to appreciate this series for what it was.

It was quite confusing at first and I feel like the body exchange this was just to make things interesting for the ratings? or just for them to both understand each other where they're coming from it's a good reality check haha!

Gil Ra Im ( Ha Ji Won) reminds me of the young Sharon Cuneta (Filipino Singer,Actress & TV Host) quite a resemblance...

                                 Anyway, Kim Joo Won as Gil Ra Im was actually cute and hilarious!

In Episode 21 there's a lot of recap about this series Memorable Moments: here are some of it
cafe meet up kiss PRICELESS!

Lee Philip as Im Jong Soo (Director of the Martial Arts school) at first I'd like to ship him and Gil Ra Im but he seems so serious and when you look at him without his glasses in his contacts maybe he got one of those bug eyes look on his face haha! and I thought him and Kim Joo Won's sister would get together in the end a mini romance that would blossom but I guess there's not much time for that? but it was cute though..

Yoon Sang Hyun as Choi Woo Young / Oska he's so funny and cute I like it whenever him and Gil Ra Im conspires against Kim Joo Won and make people jealous around them.

Overall 4 out 5 stars! good story and a bit weird at first but it will eventually grow into need to watch it of course to get what I mean.I has a really nice cute ending!

High end-Dupe-Online/Offline Window Shopping: Products on my Wishlist part 4

So If you've been following me on Instagram I recently posted some of these photos I know I'm a total makeup obsessed person these days I dunno why ugh mayhaps it's the season since it's spring and a lot of things are on sale and new-ish I like to browse around on my spare time,compare and check prices, grab a good deal stuff like that anyway without further a do!

I actually saw this at the Walmart Store other than that the rest I browsed online 
So they say the Elf Illuminating Palette is a good dupe for the Smashbox contour kit...they're quite close in comparison

So I might try Elf first then smashbox although I'm still quite contemplating about it since the Smashbox one looks a bit dark to my liking and that's the lightest shade soo...yeah tap off the excess :))

Look at this beauty! 
I never had a lip palette especially one this big haha! The thing about lip palettes I think they're quite messy and not travel friendly I feel like they're always gonna melt and how about touch ups am I right? this one is a bit of a splurge $3 a pan


this one is $13-15 although BH Cosmetics usually have sales and they got nice quality or so I heard from youtube haha and since we're on the topic about affordable goodies just look at their blushes!

If I haven't bought the benefit cheeky palette last year I would gladly jump in and buy this one in a heartbeat! for $10 you get such wonderful variety of colors for all seasons! and it's so massive I feel like this could last a lifetime haha :0

I think BH Cosmetics are great for beginners like me,aspiring makeup artists,makeup lovers and beauty gurus. I love how they always have a good deal at their website

When I saw this online my initial thought was wow! that is a good deal! and free shipping too then again as I start calculating I still think it's a nice variety of products to try and test with but still too pricey! but look at that beautiful eyeshadow set,lip color and purse though...

Lorac Riesling Product
I think this one is limited edition...I hope they bring it back! there's always ebay though haha!

Saw this one at Sephora's website and look at those gorgeous shimmers! wow! it's expensive considering it's travel size hmm..I think there's a Physician's formula dupe of this one which is much more affordable.

Evening Skincare Routine!

Note: I got dry to normal skin,dry areas usually on my cheeks and quite acne prone around the jaw line.

I'm currently using two toners to alternate in this video I only used the Secret Key Witch Hazel Pore Clear which I bought at Memebox when they had a sale ($10). I first got curious about witch hazel when a korean tv reporter shared her holy grail items a long time ago...she was using Thayer's Witch hazel that time but anyway I gave the Secret key a shot while reserving my Thayer's for later haha!

The Benton Skincare Line is actually pretty good! I bought it from memebox once again due to their sale ($30 for all of it!) comparing that price to amazon and other websites which sells them in the staggering retail price of $15 each! wow!

So let me explain why I used another "toner" again which is actually called Skin in the benton line. The first one, the witch hazel I use to cleanse while I let the benton do some additional hydration not that the witch hazel is drying or not enough or anything I just want more added moisture.

If you watched my video you'll see I used a lot of products to layer and tap for moisture absorption that's how they do it in korean skincare regimen haha so far I managed to stick with this one for a couple of months now. The benton line is especially good for the winter and spring it's hydrating! especially for my dry skin.

I recently incorporated the Nature Republic aloe soothing gel as a sleeping mask as it gives a nice flawless finish especially the following morning when I wash it all off OMG!

I'm actually almost done with the Benton Steam Cream and so I will switch it up with another cream I haven't decided yet...also I might add another sleeping pack to the mix to alternate with the aloe (that's like my last tub ugh I need to buy more haha)

That's basically it for now.

Thanks for dropping by!

Creators: Craig Engler, Karl Schaefer

Stars: Kellita Smith, Keith Allan, Russell Hodgkinson |See full cast & crew »

My thoughts:

This season my favorite character is Doc he's so funny especially when he's high haha Oh Serena's pretty badass herself and the fruit of their labor OMG kinda scary and weird but hey we never know it might just be the Jesus in the apocalypse that christmas reference though on that episode was funny!

Still got some mixed feelings bout Murphy sometimes I like him although most of the time I don't haha anyway without him wondering off and being a rebel from time to time where's the fun and story in that?!

Citizen Z I hope he survive and meet up with the gang somewhere...

Favorite episode was the Indian one also the flashbacks I finally get to see a glimpse of their life pre Z day one plus the el camino ride ending that was awesome!

Overall 4 out of 5 stars! it always makes me wonder what will happen next? will 10k survive? can Murphy stabilize his powers?what made him do it? it that really necessary? oh so many question haha can't wait to start season 3!
