My verdict has finally arrived on some of the
products I ordered earlier in the year. Instead of the usual cosmetic makeup
used to cover up flaws, this year I tried out some more natural beauty enhancement
I mostly invested in eyelash growth serum,
finishing powder compacts and staple facial cleansers. You can probably guess
by the varied review lengths that I have tested some items more than others.
I'll strive to post one of these monthly, because that's just what cats need - more internet exposure. Snapshots of Kora Cat will serve as a random visual diary of her life. I hope you enjoy it. :3 ~~~ Lesson: Poking a hole into the button lid of a jar will make it easy to open.
What better way is there to welcome the new year, other than
digging out your old game cartridges? Okay, you’re right. Planting your face
into the cat’s fluff also qualifies.
Not surprisingly, 95% of all the Game Boy games I own are either
Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh titles. I’ve picked out two of them which can be played at
your convenience, and with your friends. I mean, with other players.
The year is
drawing to a close, and the Christmas season is almost upon us once more. For
me, this holiday marks an important tradition (which I shall entitle ‘Screw the
Rules, I Have Money’ Month from this day forth). In other words, it’s time to
splurge on boxes of stuff you never knew you needed until just a moment ago. Or,
in my case... even more boxes of stuff than usual.
This year, I have decided to expand my collection
of trading cards.
After recently watching an anime
series (La Corda d'Oro) which
glorified violinists and other classical musicians, I found myself aimlessly wandering
YouTube seeking inspiration from those gifted with real musical talent. Several funny cat videos later, I stumbled across something known as the Canon Rock. You may recall the memorable melody of Pachelbel’s Canon from an early snippet of your youth, except some clever composers these days have ‘modernised’ it. No longer will you have that twitchy urge to hit fast forward until you reach the chorus, because now the entire piece is nearly the same degree of awesomeness all the way through.
First up, not
much anime this month. Mainly because I’m out of stuff that’s actually good,
but this time also because I caught some kind of nasty flu. It’s one of those strains
that causes a stuffy nose, coughing and vomiting all at once. Yup. Anyway, onto
decided that this month’s topic would be relationship deal breakers. It’s a
little different, but at least this will serve as a useful guide for any
potential suitors crazy enough to even try. Incidentally, this particular topic
was deemed way too controversial for publication on the collaborative site. Nevertheless,
I’m posting my two cents on it here anyway. En Garde! :P
You may be wondering what my thoughts are on dogs, given my unwavering fixation with cats. Today, I will be exploring some fundamental questions and touching on a few common misconceptions about the topic.
It's been a long month, and I'm presenting an even longer post. Yup, you should be grateful that your underarms don't smell like yoghurt and the cat hasn't tried sniffing your bellybutton. Well... Onwards!
Harvest Moon is a refreshingly unique series which teaches players about farming and community values. Given the relaxed setting, it is actually quite surprising that so many people have played and enjoyed the series. Having played through many Harvest Moon games myself throughout the years, I shall write for you some thoughts on it and list the marriage candidates in order of personal preference.
And now, it’s time for some rare insight into the contributing factors of general contentment. Although happiness as a whole varies widely between individuals, there are some basic core elements which we can all share and utilise.
Personally, I have always found that some immediate contentment can be gained by combining the following factors:
Some beauty basics ideal for the lazy and broke. Like me. :> Missha Auto Eyebrow Pencil
I have this eyebrow pencil in brown/grey. It draws on light, making it easier to build up and less likely to look too intense. Missha's pencil is also one of those retractable-crayon types which never needs to be sharpened. The colour shade matches well for people with dyed or not-so-black hair, otherwise for black hair you can go for the Shiseido Gray Eyebrow Pencil instead. They also double as less heavy looking eyeliner.
Nail Filing Block
These things are so amazing. You can polish your bare nails until they go all smooth and shiny, like a well varnished saloon floor. Say goodbye to that crusty month-old nail varnish look. They also come in a slimmer file form, which are less bulky to carry around, but fall apart more easily. I’m almost glad that spa salesman with the long eyelashes pulled me off the street to show me this product. Except that I still didn’t buy anything from him.
A godsend for people with oily type skin. It’s a translucent white powder which blots away oily shine that builds up at the end of the day. No longer will your head resemble a bowling ball each evening.
Max Factor Sheer Gloss Balm
Provides a more natural lip colour without smearing or staining. It also prevents your lips from drying out and cracking, but it’s less sticky than just a regular colourless balm.I got mine free as a promotional gift from someone working in retail. You can also get other free stuff sent to your house by filling out online sample forms.
Brandless Eye Shadow Palette
It’s so cheap that it has no brand! Sure, it does suck that none of the colours show up very well, but at least you get a lot of them. Good for people who don’t have heavy double lids, and can also be used as eyeliner or brow filler. Pulls off the subtle winged eyeliner look quite well.
Puyo Puyo is one of those rare, timeless games which I do actually pick up and replay. It’s a cute fusion of Tetris and Connect Four presented in the form of colourful jelly. You can rotate and position the jelly blocks as they drop from above, to trigger popping chains which can hurt your opponent. Every time you pop a chain, your selected character will perform a unique attack and nuisance Puyo jelly will drop down into the rival screen. The longer the chain you set off, the more powerful the attack you will use. I really enjoy this addition to the game, as it creates something more than just a puzzle game. I think it must have something to do with the secret animalistic desire in us all to destroy our opponents via Spirit Bomb. In any case, praise the developer who actually managed to think up a way to make a game about jelly popping as exciting as Dragonball Z and Sailor Moon. Although there isn’t much of a storyline, I feel that the super chibi character designs more than make up for it. Besides, it’s a light-hearted jelly popping game. Nobody would be able to take that seriously, right?
BB creams are a product that sit somewhere between foundation and skincare, and therefore they can save you both time and money. Many BB creams include multiple functions on top of acting as a foundation, such as UV protection, moisturiser and blemish healing properties.
Somehow I stumbled upon another otome game with a fan made English translation patch, this time for the PC. Starry Sky is a series based on the signs of the zodiac, giving players a massive pool of twelve guys to choose from. The down side is that you only get to choose out of three different guys for each season, and so you have to play all four games to meet everyone. But fortunately, I took one look at the game posters and pretty much knew exactly which two characters to aim for.
Today, I’ll be introducing you to the humble black field cricket. They can make great alternative pets for those of you who aren’t allowed to keep cats at home, and are easy to maintain. Plus, they’re such cute little critters. Just look at those loving beady eyes.
Tokimeki Memorial: First Love Plus (DS) To celebrate the fact that the English Translation patch for my favourite Tokimeki Memorial game is finally complete, I feel that I’m going to have to write something more in depth about it. At long last, you will be able to understand what on earth all those guys are saying in their husky Japanese voices. /^^/
These arise when the lyrics of a song sound unclear, thus causing confusion. This is especially common in music sung with languages other than English, producing subtitles of hilarious gibberish. A must if you find fobby languages such as Chinglish, Engrish or Spanglish funny.
You may have gathered by now that I played the Pokémon games quite a lot in my day. However, I am not a competitive battler so I don’t fight actual players. With that in mind, here are some methods on how to do well at the Battle Frontier in-game.
As we all know, anime is the fastest and most efficient way to enrich your otherwise bland afternoons. Whether it be for laughs, fights or reflection, those of you who don’t watch enough anime are missing out on something truly essential to living.
Here are some musings about a few that I have watched recently in March 2011.
Now, given that I seldom actually go outside for any reason other than getting my mail, I don’t actually know much about painting my face. However, I am qualified to tell you how not to look like a bum, thereby giving you slightly more chance of success at that job interview.
Today, I am going to discuss something that I feel is very important – I am going to be educating you about Pokémon. I know most people believe it is a children’s franchise, and while that is partially true, it concerns me that so many fail to see the whole picture. To call Pokémon a child’s game and to look down upon those who enjoy it, you must understand what the franchise consists of entirely; otherwise you are simply proving your own ignorance.
