Photolog 2018: Day 109 of 365

Friday, April 20, 2018

Remember when I bought all the unofficial (read: fake) BT21 large cushions and was in deep regret but was all like, "I'm still gonna use them when I move and just be satisfied with getting the official small ones"? Well, I lied. I was casually perusing the official Line Friends page on Amazon a few days ago to see if anything was re-stocked because everything keeps selling out so fast, and lo and behold, I found the large Van cushion finally available for purchase. So I had to snatch it up, if only because the actual retail price is about half the cost of getting it off of eBay. And it arrived today, which is about two weeks before I thought I'd get it, so I'm really quite pleased. (It's also bigger than the fake ones I bought, so I know that on top of being fake, the unofficial ones are not 42cm as advertised.) Of course, because I got the one now, I have to get the other seven (obviously). So I may have gotten another two off of eBay today. And now I just have to hunt down the other five...

Highlights of today: Eating spicy Korean ramen and pre-ordering all four versions of BTS' upcoming album, Love Yourself 轉 'Tear'. It's a good day.

My latest BTS acquisition has arrived! To be honest, it's been kind of fun to hunt down all of their older multimedia releases that are out-of-print. Basically, eBay and I are best friends now.

Went over to Chelsea's last night and left with a big container of baked bacon and cheese egg "cups" that her mom made for me. Had a couple for breakfast this morning, and they are so good, they almost make me wanna learn how to cook.

Makeup and Beauty Blog: Monday Poll, Vol. 520

Monday, April 16, 2018
This week's Monday Poll:
  1. What was the best class you ever took as an adult? Fashion Photographic Makeup. It was apart of my program in makeup school, and has been the most useful class I ever took in regards to my career now.

  2. If you went to college, how did you decide where to go? For university, I chose Ryerson partially for location but mostly because it was the only school in Canada offering Graphic Communications Management (which was my major). For makeup school, I chose CMU because it was (and still is) the most reputable and comprehensive makeup college in Toronto.

  3. Pom-poms and tassels: yes or no? I do quite enjoy a good pom-pom. And I'm okay with tassels so long as it's not excessive.

  4. What's a rumour you're inclined to believe? That BTS will perform at this year's Billboard Music Awards. It does coincide with their comeback, and they're nominated for the Top Social Artist award again. (Of course my answer would be BTS-related.)

  5. Last awkward encounter with someone? A client came in the other day and had a full conversation with me about a makeup I did on her years ago and asked how I was doing, and she seemed to recall a lot about me and our interactions... but I totally did not remember who she was, and I just had to smile and nod at her the entire time.

As I am still waiting for the two versions of Face Yourself I ordered to be delivered, my order of BTS' other two Japanese albums (Wake Up and Youth) arrived today. I figured if I'm going to be collecting their entire discography, I should be thorough about it.

Day 2 of the ice stormEverything is frozen. Thus, I have not left the house today.

Sunday Video Love: Spring Day (Dance Practice)


This is by far BTS' most emotional choreography, and it perfectly captures the poetic, melancholic sentiment of the song.

It also accurately depicts today's mood.
