Newsflash!!!! ^^

I've been MIA for awhile now.. With school and work, i cannot make time to do blogs. However, on the bright side, I will be getting on with those reviews I've been wanting to do since semester is almost done.. yippee!! ^_^ Anyway, how was your Thanksgiving?? Mine went pretty good. Spent time with family and played BINGO.. =P What about Black Friday? Did you guys went shopping?? I just went to H&M and bought some scarves, beanies, a decent coat for 50% off (orig. $69.95). Also, I bought a new camera! I ordered it yesterday from Amazon and got the Canon Rebel T2i with EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens and a 16GB SanDisk Extreme memory card. This Thursday or Friday, my bf and I are going to get some materials for my lightbox. We will just make the DIY one since it's pretty cheap that way, unlike spending $100 for it so might as well make our own. Anyway, enough blabbering for now...Have a good one! ^^,

FINE Hyaluron & Collagen: How to Prepare

So yesterday I told you guys about this powder. I got it from Cosmeland in Rowland Heights. A gift for myself obviously ^__^. I've been wanting to buy this product since SaSa advertised it on their website buy 2 get 1 free. If I order it from them, it will take at least 2-3 weeks to get here and I cannot wait that long O.o When I found out that Cosmeland is about 30 to 45 minutes away, I have to go there haha.. By the way, cosmelandusa website is the same as Cosmeland store (it's the exact store where you guys buy all those beauty products!) I'm so lucky that this place is here in CA and in my vicinity. To my surprise, they were selling the FINE Hyaluron & Collagen too! I'm soooo happy! ^_____^ So i bought just 1 can for now to try it out. Yesterday was my first day of drinking this and it's so yummy! I can't wait to drink it again later on. =P

Anyway, here are my simple steps to prepare this delicious drink:

But first of all, this powder can be added in your milk (which I did)

You can also add it in your favorite morning coffee, cereal/oats etc:

And with your pancakes! ^__^

 Here's my simple steps for making a nice cup of milk with FINE:

1. Here's what it looks like inside. (it comes with a free scoop too!)

2. Here's the milk and glass.

3. Get one scoop of FINE Hyaluron & Collagen powder for one cup of milk.

4. Put it in an empty cup.

5. Then, pour in the milk.

6. Stir it well until the powder is completely dissolved.

7. DONE! 

Happy Drinking! ^__^

I love the taste so much that I wanted another cup of milk.It's sooo yummy! But it's recommended to consume one scoop of FINE in one day. Today is my second day of drinking this but I will wait until before I go to sleep and drink it tonight.

Where to buy:

1600 S Azusa Ave
Rowland Heights, CA 91748

There's another product of FINE in their website but I don't know if it's the same. They have the pink can one (the one i have) in their store. Make sure contact them and ask before you order. 

I've posted this link to take you straight to the product. 

My best recommendation is to buy the product at It's cheaper: $45. Since if you buy 2 you get the 3rd can for free. Also it's free shipping on orders over $75.But if you only wanted to get 1, you can just pay the shipping fee of $6. But the wait time is too long =/ If you're willing to wait then it's a good deal. I paid mine for $55 plus tax and of course I get to try it right away. Next time, I will order through sasa before the deal expires. I think it's good until November 30th or when supplies last.

Hopefully you guys enjoyed reading this!

Lovely Gifts from Lovely Fam/Friends ^__^

I just told you guys from my previous posts that it was my birthday last Friday and I just wanted to share what they got for me. I'm so happy with the gifts and also excited to try them all out!

One of my friends gave me this adorable accessories holder. It's pastel pink. I've been raving to get one of these myself but never seen nice ones around. Yet. she found it! Thanks a lot!! <3

It's an urban decay eyeshadow palette which includes the eyeshadow primer potion. I love the colors! It has a mirror on the side too. Very nice.. =D

They have given me this Sephora Collection of OPIs. Love the colors again by the way. I cannot wait to try them on.

Almost forgot about this one... This one came with the accessories holder. It's part of that gift hehe.. I've tried one on yesterday and today and my hands feel soft and smooth. I've been complaining about how my hands get so dry and hopefully this is the solution! =)

My mom gave me this foot scrub kit. It looks fabulous as well. I cannot wait to try them either. It looks very eco-friendly in a way. :) Thanks mom!

Another one are these lovely scented candles. They smell delish! I don't understand what it says but I think it's from Nicaragua. Looking at it I think it's made from coffee beans and of course the smell as well. 

 Can you guys see the beans???  Smells great!
It came with a lovely card as well. So sweet! 
 I don't know why my uploader is messing up? My photos have been going to different directions. Anyway, my bf got me these. Oh gosh! I've been wanting to get this for myself. Thanks so much!

It looks gorgeous! I cannot stop looking at it.. I feel like I don't want to wear them too lol.. It's too pretty.. haha =P Thanks again bun! (well just in case you guys didn't know that's my endearment for him) :)

And of course I made gave myself a treat too! I went to Cosmeland in Rowland Heights since I don't even want to bother having the items ship from their online store might as well go directly there.

how to use it
For adults, consume 7g (around 1 tbsb) of Fine Hyaluron & Collagen every day. Dilute it with warm water or other drinks (such as orange juice or milk). You may also consume with desserts (such as yoghurt or ice cream). Suitable for pregnant women. Could be consumed with flu tablets.

Happy Birthday to ME!

Earlier, I posted that it was my bf's bday and last November 12 was my turn! I turn 23! :S
 We had a BBQ at my friend's place and it was fun. 
 We forgot to remove the box so it wasn't as presentable as the other one.. haha But this cake is my favorite. It has chocolate sprinkles on the side and 2 layers of crunchy/flaky stuff in the middle. 

All in all, I am glad that I have people to share this day with.

Thank You! <3

Samsung Vibrant Galaxy S Review ;)

Two weeks ago, my old celfone (LG Ice Cream) decided to give up on me unfortunately. So I was forced to buy a new celfone and my contract with T-mobile hasn't even ended yet. Bummer! Luckily, when I called customer service they offered me the discounted price for the fone to renew my contract with them. I'm only 2 months shy before my contract will end. She said that she waived the fee for express shipping. I was really happy! After 2 days, I found the package sitting in front of my door waiting.. :)

 Samsung Vibrant Galaxy S

What's inside the box:
-Micro SD adapter
-Extra back shell for the celfone
-Samsung fone
It took me around 3 days to get used to txting with this. Since I'm still stuck with my old ways (flip phone).XD

 Front view
(I just took this right now since I figured out I'm doing a review for this fone might as well go all the way right?) 
I love how the colors are so vivid.
The fone has 4.0" Super AMOLED Screen and 9.9mm thickness


The back looks nice too but that's not too important haha!

-As I said before, the 4.0" AMOLED screen

-Daily Briefing

hmmm not that cold tonight.. :)
-Integrated Calendar
Month view

Weekly View

Day View

List View

For example: Let's go to Mitsuwa in Torrance, CA. You can select whether by car, bus, biking, or walk! Isn't that cool?

Another cool thing about it is that you can view the live traffic views! =D

and you can also view your route by satellite view! Another cool thing! =D


 shows what's around you: restaurants, house/apt for rent, bars, shopping etc.

write and go app.. write anything and share it!

see.. you can update it to facebook too.. you can use swype keys with these too..

-ThinkFree Office
can view any documents you have; PDF, Word, Powerpoint, etc.

and soooo much more... I really need to cut this review short..

OVERALL: I LOVE IT!!! I think this beats the iphone 4 ;-) You can multi task with it and have different home screens. You can customize fonts and such. The only con about this fone is that it sucks the battery life quick! You need to have your charger with you and get a car charger. So while you're driving you can charge it! Unless you don't use it as much then i guess it will last for the whole day. But the charger is your best friend.. ;-)
