Irrelevant caption: so I’m finishing the french book I’ve been ignoring for the past two months and I absolutely dislike the depressing parts when they talk about deaths. About 3 months ago, i lost my grand-aunt who meant the world to me. So whenever death or dying or grieving is the subject, i feel so uneasy and upset. I almost cried while reading chapter 23 (spoiler alert) because i totally understand how painful it is to lose someone so dear to your heart. So many things can happen in a blink of an eye so make sure that you let your love ones know how much they mean to you.
This is what I love about Winter. You wake up in the middle of the night, maybe just to pee or get water or something, look out the window and see this. It’s so beautiful. And it’s silent; you have no idea that it’s happening until you just look. It almost seems fake. And it makes your bed seem way more comfortable, for whatever reason.
I love summer nights but I can’t wait for this.
The notebooks and the lattes rolled back into my daily routine earlier than expected.
(Lol at my sister’s face in background)
Met up with on thursday, a week after she came back from China! She told me stories about her vacay and volunteer work. We were a bit productive and managed to finish 2 chapters of our french book.
We went to Square for lunch and a bit of back to school shopping for Jess. Since she stayed in Asia for a month, she was in dire need to white girl food staples! Hahaha. It was a chipotle + starbucks kind of afternoon.
Its nice to be able to hang out with Jess after a while. Im so used to being with her 24/7 since we had all our class together and we’d skype during those late night cramming sessions. Im super bummed out that we’re likely not going to have as many classes together this year since she’s not taking HL CHEM or Bio anymore.
She cant (and wouldn’t) get rid of me anyways hahaha. We’ll continue to have our usual (food) dates ;)
Knowing me, I probably cannot commit to doing Sunday currently so I decided to just do “The Currently”. This way, it gives me the freedom to post on any given day :)

blog posts (well trying to think of what to talk about). For the past year or so, I’ve mostly just been doing photo dumps. I miss writing about my life, current faves, monthly challenges and etc.

for an amazing school year. I really want this year to be a kick-ass one. I always believed that the final year is always the best one. It’s bittersweet yet amazing.

my lazy summer days… I kind of wish I didn’t go for retake courses so I could spend two months of sleeping in and doing whatever I want.

to see my friends! It feels weird to only see them via facetime or snapchat. I miss hanging out at the mall or at Mcdonalds across the school.

Kim Kardashian game app, my biggest guilty pleasure
I was looking through this week’s flyers on my phone and I came across an awesome deal from target.
They had certain items on sale and if you buy two or more of those items, you would get a $5 target gift card! The Maybelline mascaras were marked down to $3.50 and that’s an all time low for this brand! I’ve tried several maybelline mascaras and I love every single one of them. I can definitely say that it is my holy grail brand for mascaras.
I decided to pick up something new and my most favourite one. I wanted to try the rocket mascara since it was popular last year among beauty gurus. The colossal was my first ever mascara and will always be my all time fave. The colossal was the only mascara I’ve used that I didn’t need to combine with other mascara (I use 2-3 different mascaras).
In canada, the maybelline mascaras retails to around $6-10 (regular price) and the lowest price it went on sale (that I’ve ever seen) was $4.50 until this week.
In total, I paid (with taxes) $7.91, but since I got a $5 target gift card with the purchase, it’s practically $2.91 ($1.45 EACH!!!) I am so so happy with this purchase and I hope something like this deal happens again!
