gmarket haul

Happy Birthday Hubby!!!!

He got his new phone today and ended up playing with it all morning till he went to work while I was going through my gmarket package....

-Etude BB Magic Balm (with free brush)
-Etude Orgel Light Eyeliner Pot in #1 Black
-꽃보다 남자 Earring
-꽃보다 남자 Necklace
-VOV Show Case Ball on Cheek #1 Bebe Pink
-Etude Orgel Light Eyeliner Pot in #4 Grey

-Etude BB Magic Balm (with free brush)
I love this very much. It is definitely thicker than BB Creams and works better to cover all the redness on my skin... It kind of works as a concealer for me and it has SPF 30! 

VOV Show Case Ball on Cheek #1 Bebe Pink
I fell in love when I saw this. It is so adorable! It smells so pretty too!!!

-Etude Orgel Light Eyeliner Pot #4 Grey
#1 Black did not come in a box... I like the pretty boxes....

Left is the grey and thus right is black.
Pretty pink boxes holding lovely jewelry!!!!

꽃보다 남자 earrings!!!!! I fell in love when I saw that Gmarket was selling it! Had to get it!!

꽃보다 남자 necklace in the biggest size that the seller offered. Isn't it pretty???

My free gift. At first, I did not know what it was. I was thinking, did I get a box of tissue? I asked hubby to read the korean but it did not say what it contained but it is actually makeup cotton pads of some sort. A nice tissue box size full!!!

It was my birthday yesterday!!! Got a wonderful gift from hubby:

Hubby surprised me at midnight with Louis Vuitton Damier French Purse!!! I love it so much!!!

The food we had was this yummy Paella Valenciana with Lobster from La Cibeles. It lasted us 2 meals... It came with a wierd tasting bean soup that I didn't take a picture of because it looked funny and tasted/smelled funny... String beans and home made chips came with it but we didn't touch it picture....

My mother-in-law made me a miyuk guk too!!! I'm sorry I forgot the picture but it was yummy!! Talking about yumminess, she also got me a Sweet Potato Cake form Gateau!!!!

Honestly, I think that this cake is my favorite now... It has a mild sweetness unlike american cakes and it was so moist!!! Uber yumminess!!

MAC, Etude House, SH, & Hard Candy

So during my lunch/dinner break yesterday at work, I went to the MAC counter at the mall... I was not a happy shopper... It was so busy... Anyways, I got a Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus. At first, the guy who helped me told me this is too dark for my skin but I still find it a bit light for me.... I love how my skin looks with it on though...

My Etude House Peach Pore Erasing Peach Base in #1 Peach came the other day after a week of delay because of the post office.... I got a free sample too! A Etude House Moistfull Mask. 

I got a Hard Candy Secret Stash Palette. I'm thinking about leaving this in my bag... Another Hard Candy Palette in Disco 2000. I don't like it as much now that I have been looking a bit more... 

While coming back home today, I stopped by Duane Reade and got a Sally Hansen NO CHIP 10 Day Nail Color in #81 Forever Mango and got a #01 Clear free. Quite pretty... 

So I recently planted seeds for Parsley and Chives. They finally sprouted (is that the correct term??) last week and they did a really cute thing. At first, they leaned toward the window and I turned the planter 180 degrees. They turned then!!! I was so fascinated... Gotta go do the Totoro dance some more now...

Aldo, MAC HK, Etude House, and BoA!!

I have been shopping a little crazy for the past 3 months.... Now that I think about it, it feels as if I am shopping to make up for the 7 months where I did not buyt alot...

Anyways, the past 3 weeks has been the worst for me... I ordered a pair of Burberry Check Rainboots but it did not fit me so I went to the Burberry Store in Soho and tried the Burberry Check Short Rainboot in a smaller size... The smaller one fit in a way but if I wore thick socks, I don't think I would be able to walk.... I just ordered the Check Short Rainboot just this morning so hopefully I will have no problem with it...

I bought my husband some stuff from the Levi's store in Soho... He is so particular about the color of the jeans that he wears.... The same day, I went to Uniqlo and got some colored leggings for myself.

I got myself a pair of Aldo boots: Eakle. 
I also ordered some makeup from Gmarket for the first time.... The products itself were cheap compared to buying it off ebay but the initial estimated shipping price that they charged me was insane!!! They pretty much refunded almost half of my total cost back to my G Account Cash Balance instead of PayPal which kinda sucks... 

Everything I got was from Etude House:
- Pore Erasing Peach Base in #2 Mint
- Cute and Sexy Eyes Palette in #4 Pink and Purple
- Peach Skin Pact
- lipstick in PK003 and PK006
- (FREE) Moistful Skincare Travel Set
- (FREE)Magic Soothing Mask Sheet
- (FREE) sticker bow thing??
- Orgel Light Lipstick #2
- VIP Girl Dear Darling Lipstick in PK006
- 2 Eyeliner Brushes
- Nail Art Pen in #1 White
I love most of the items... I have to stop buying colors that are right for my skin tone vs cute colors and cute packaging because I am now using the Orgel Light Lipstick as a gloss and I cannot even use the Peach Skin Pact because it's way to light for my skin tone... Dang cute marketing strategies and me for falling for it... I tried one of the Magic Soothing Mask Sheet... it made me feel mad greasy for a few hours... not happy about it at all....

Some MAC Hello Kitty: 
-Lipglass in Nice Kitty
-Lipglass in Mimmy
- Tinted Lip Conditioner in Popster
- Lustre Lipstick in Strayin'
- Frost Lipstick in Cute-ster
It's my 1st time buying lipglass from MAC... I'm not sure if I like it... It has that stickiness that I do not like. Is it just me? As for the Tinted Lip Conditioner, my lips are so soft from using it but it tastes kinda funny to me... I love the lipstick's. I love the colors even though my husband says that the Strayin' is a bit bright. 

I ordered some things from Forever21. I will try to post the pictures soon...

So yeah.... 2 special days are coming up... March 22 and March 29. I am turning 23 this Sunday and my husband said "pick a bag and I will get it for you".... I am trying to be a bit practical and get something that I can use for school and work... March 29, next Wednesday, is my husband's birthday... what to get him??? lol

I want the Leather Julianne from COACH for $458. It's 15x13x5. Yes. I am a big bag girl. I have tons of stuff to throw into a bag even when I am not going to class. Most of the time, I carry my Nintendo DS with me.... That reminds me of my copy of Suikoden: Tierkreis should be in my hands tomorrow. I should also get myFinal Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time on March 24 for the Wii!! So I went off into a completely different topic... Back to Coach.... If I get the bag, I will also buy the Small Parker Wallet for $118... I wanted to replace my old Coach Skinny Wallet for a long time....but I just never really found a wallet that I like...

I got my copy of BoA's debut US album from Amazon. I love most of the songs because the English version of Girls on Top sounds wierd to me... I still love BoA though!!!!
