Okay, that’s a long title but I really just wanted to share more of my August with you even if it’s already September. My last coffee post was too emotional that I feel like I failed to share some of the better things that have happened in my life.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I just celebrated my birthday! Thinking of my age makes me feel old. I have witnessed and experienced so much and yet there’s still a lot more to do. I plan to make the most out of my life and stop complaining about the things I can’t do because of this or that. We all need to have a “let’s do this” attitude and stop procrastinating. 🙂
Speaking of that, if we were having coffee, I’m going to share with you that I really want my own business. I’ve been thinking of a lot of ideas and the one thing that I want to try is selling cookies. It’s simple and easy to make. I just did my first batch of cookies but I feel like it’s missing the oomph factor. There’s nothing special with the ones I made which will make it hard to sell, lol. I will let my friends taste it just to have a second opinion but I don’t have very high hopes.
If we were having coffee, I want to share with you some updates on my skincare. I finally emptied two beloved products – CosxRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid and The Saem’s Cleansing Water. I love these two products but emptying these just mean more products to try. 🙂 I tried the CosRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Toner but I had a major breakout because of it. After using it for a week I had pimples everywhere! I stopped immediately. I sold that to my friend which meant I could try out another product! Yey! I’m currently trying out the CosRX Two in One Poreless Power Liquid. So far I’m not breaking out which is good. Hopefully, I can put out a worthy review soon. I want to test it out first.
Some other things that I’ve been testing out are hand creams. I am currently using The Face Shop’s Green Tea Hand Cream which I don’t like too much cause it feels weird but I also bought Innisfree’s Orchid Hand Cream which I am so excited to use. Oh, and another empty was my Body Shop Cheek and Lip Tint. I got The Face Shop’s version but I don’t like the one I have because it’s too red. When I use it on my cheeks I feel like someone slapped me! It’s too pigmented for me. 😦 Do you have any favorite lip and cheek tints you could recommend? I love the one from Body Shop but that’s just too expensive for me right now.
What else? If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m obsessed with The Blacklist, Mindhunter, and Prison Playbook. I already finished season 4 of The Blacklist. Honestly, this shows annoys me but it has a way of making me come back for more. I hate how I’ve already finished Season 4 but we are still tackling the same storyline from Season 1.
If you haven’t watched Mindhunter, I suggest you do. It’s about the history (although I’m not sure) of serial killers and how profiling came about. I’m not too sure if it’s based on facts but it’s highly entertaining. We just finished Season 1 and I am hoping for a Season 2 soon! My Korean series pick of the month is Prison Playbook. I’m only watching this for Jung Hae In and I am already regretting it. First of all, one series takes an hour and a half. Secondly, the plot is shallow. I need to power through it so I can watch another K-drama.
That’s it for a more in-depth analysis of my August. It was okay, again. There’s really not much to share yet because I still feel like my husband and I are still getting used to married life. I was actually telling him that maybe he and I should work from home during Fridays just so we can do the chores then and have Saturday as a date day and Sundays as a rest day. I’m not sure yet. Let’s see. There’s just so many chores to do!!!!
