Smiling Pasta ~Asian Candy~

Hey all! I've been totally forgetful when it came to watching Asian dramas and I'd like to apologise to all of you who have been waiting around to see what dramas I would have suggested monthly. Well, I'm back on it and I will try my hardest to keep up with this each month from now on!

Taken from Wiki Drama
This month's drama, a little early for February but nonetheless is Smiling Pasta, a Tawainese Romantic Comedy.

School again.. Jiggidy Jig!

Hey all! Just a quick update on what's going on this week. University's started back and you know what that means? Busy, busy, busy and work until it's coming out of my ears.

Hopefully this semester is going to be good for everyone. I'm a bit worried about my hours, it feels more like I'll live at school. Last semester I would be at school around the clock using the computers to do my work etc since I had some PC troubles at home, but at least then I'd set out my hours to leave, or lime or just have fun. Now it's more crazy hour practicals and late night classes -__-. Sometimes I really wonder if it's all worth it.

I will try my hardest to enjoy the entire semester, and not overwork myself. I missed out on so much TV last semester and really it didn't make me any better off. All work and no play DOES make Jack a dul boy. hahaha.

So CHEERS to the new semester! I need to sleep already hahaha.Such is the life of a college student.

Being Natural for 1 year: Thoughts and Bridges to cross

Hey everyone, I haven't alked about my hair in some time. Actually, I barely keep track of the progress. So I have no idea the speed of my hair growth, my hair texture (4a, b, c, ...z), I barely even have a regimen, but my hair has been doing well and looking healthy.

It has been 14 months since my last processing (texturiser) and I could be considered natural. I never thought once before this past year that I'd be natural or anything such, watching the occasional hair video. I liked my texturiser, it was versatile. I could wear my hair curly or straight and that was great for me.

I have different hair textures at the front and back of my head hahaha

This is my final review for this series T__T. Well I hope that you've been able to find the information you've been looking for during this time, if not, you could ask me to review other products and I will try my hardest to get to them. Today we'll be talking about the Almay Almay Oil-free Eye Makeup Remover Pads. America's #1 they are rated, but is it really worth the buzz or is that just an advertising gimmick?

Taken from eyeslipsface
Hey all! Today I'll be continuing with my Review-a-Day series. I hope you've been enjoying it, it's the weekend stretch, just two more posts after this and it'll also be school descending upon me. I still hope I have the time to blog and get inspired to make more series like this. So today's product is going to be the  e.l.f Essentials Soothing lip balm, once known as the Therapeutic Conditioning lip balm. I think they changed the name because they had another product with a quite similar name.
Worth the buy? let's find out...

Review-a-Day: e.l.f. Studio Cream Eyeliner

Taken from eyeslipsface
Today I'll be reviewing the e.l.f. nStudio Cream eyeliner. During 2010 and 2011, gel or cream liners became really popular and many make up brands started making then, from the drugstore brands up to the higher end cosmetic companies. The e.l.f Studio cream liner is just one of the many created but is it a good or bad one? Onto the review!

A Sentimental One Hundred posts!

It's been a long time since I first started this blog, I've missed my Blog anniversary even, but I feel reaching 100 posts is a milestone too. Thank you for sticking with me through the thick and thin, I know it's been a rough ride. Sometimes I'd not post for weeks then I'd kind of go bananas with ideas, hahaha.

A big thank you to all my readers, either those following quietly or signed up through Twitter or Google Friend connect. Huge thank you to all of my SUPPORTERS! I have a great support team and I've come all this way because you each and every one of you that have supported me. Both family and friends, I'm always mentioning them here or in my videos.

I remember when I started off this blog, I wasn't sure what to write on or even if people would take the time to read the ramblings of a science nerd. My first post was on cutting my hair, my week and a main feature on an Indian restaurant named Sitar that my family had been to, and while I wrote that post, I thought , "maybe this will turn into a food blog like The Daily Kimchi". That was one of the first blogs that inspired me to write. It wasn't only about food, but the writer took a great care into capturing the delicacies he was about to eat and still told an interesting story of his adventures of teaching in South Korea. That blog really inspired me and I'd definitely love to give him credit for it. I'm not sure if Gdog as he called himself still blogs, but I really appreciated the effort you put into your blog.

Some interesting history about this blog:
  1. The original name was the Lemon Happiness or something similar and the domain name was the Lemon Wedge Smile. For some reason I was extremely excited about that name and the thought of acid and sweet together was the perfect oxymoron for me.
  2. My blogger name was the Sour Jelly bean. I don't know what it was about me and candy or sour anything at that point lol.
  3. I ended up neglecting this blog for sometime because I wasn't managing my time well between  trying to post and do school work, so I made a deal. I would balance my time around this blog, school and YouTube and then I could reward myself by trying out Twitter. (Now a love of mine hahaha)
  4. I kept my blog separate and somewhat a secret from my Yotube until I was making good consistent content.
  5. As I got more interested in make up and followed more beauty bloggers I decided to capture my hauls with some amateur photography. (I still don't have the best camera, but some day I'll get a better one, hopefully a DSLR).
I use my blog as a time capsule almost, not for beauty blogging only, but I like to share my thoughts here, and find out if others are feeling the same way. I can look back at my thoughts, my feelings, and inspiration.

Through these 100 posts I feel like I have matured as my blog also has too. The template, layout and background has evolved and I hope to improve my writing and content with your help and support.

Again I'd like to thank everyone who has stuck around to see the changes that have come about.

New Series coming up! ... Review-a-Day!

Hey all! I have a new series of videos comin up on my YouTube channel, as long as I get the work done on this new special effects editor that I'm trying out. I hope that this new series will be helpful.

BTW this does not mean that my other series on my channel such as Complications of Infatuation (COI), Jitterbox, or even Monthly Favourites (which I haven't remembered to film lately hahah) will end. I tend to do those videos when I'm deeply inspired by something. so look out for them appearing at random.

This new series will be focusing on a number of reviews for products which I've had for some time. I realised I hadn't done many reviews on my channel and decided to take this opportunity to film a whole bunch.

It will be a 7 -part series where I will be uploading a video a day (hopefully) of short reviews, followed with a blog post giving further information on the product, such as photos, pros and cons, the video, where you can find the product, etc.

I've decided to call this Review-a-Day, not completely original, but it gets the point across hahah.

Here's the product line up for Review-a-Day:
  1. Maybelline Great Lash Big Mascara
  2. Maybelline The Falsies Volum'Express (Waterproof)
  3. e.l.f. Essentials Waterproof Eyeliner Pen
  4. e.l.f. Studio Cream Eyeliner
  5. e.l.f. Therapeutic Conditioning lip balm ( now called Essential Soothing Lip Balm)
  6. Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-Up Remover
  7. Almay Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover Pads

I hope that I have some product that you have been trying to find a review for in this series, if not you can always suggest a product for rerview on this post or email me at chrisamoryt@gmail.com .

Until next post, enjoy your weekend!
