Year End Post

You know him. No? No worries. You will.


Alas! The year is over... Well, soon to be over. Two days left of 2014. This post will not really be about a review of my year, in case that's what you are expecting. In fact, as I'm typing away, I have no concrete idea of what I will be talking about. I just feel like writing my thoughts now, yes... I'm typing as I think.

So I will first talk about the thing that has been preoccupying my mind at the moment. Benedict Cumberbatch. Hahaha.

Crab Nebula in his eyes. How can you not fall in looooooove?!

A few months back, I was all about Norman Reedus. I still love him, but The Walking Dead is in mid-season break and I recently watched all the Sherlock episodes available for viewing.

At first, I didn't really give a damn (sorry, curse word) about Sherlock because Robert Downey, Jr., I was convinced, was THE Sherlock. But I gave it a try... First episode later, I was sucked in and fell in love with Cumberbatch. Ah! And he's not even that attractive. (jk he is super hot, in my eyes at least)

This is him being particularly creepy. Ugh. Gotta love this guy. :D

So there, another TV show I'd be waiting MONTHS for for another season. :( So far, I've got the Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Sherlock. God forbid I start watching another series (Oops, I just remembered I started watching Elementary too--it's another utilization of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novels). I will be infinitely sedentary. :(


Like a lot of my friends and students know, I love movies. I love, love, love movies. I watch whenever I can. Only this year did I start watching TV dramas. And I'm doomed. :|

************************

On another note, it's still quite possible I'd be moving to Japan the coming year. I'm still praying for that every night. This is a change necessary in my life and I badly, badly want it. I'd be getting my license from the PRC office as soon as the holidays are over and push through with VISA application. I'm really hoping this will happen! :)

I have also decided that my brain needs a workout (my body does too, hahaha). I intend to do more enriching activities next year. I started reading about forensic science recently. Most likely because of my obsession with the whole Sherlock thing. But it is quite a fascinating area, actually. Making a career out of it wouldn't have been such a bad thing (considering I have a nursing background).

Anyhow, I'm about to start my next class. Break is over. So... We'll end it here. See you again next time! :)

P.S.
There are lots of things to look forward to in 2015. I will surely embark in a great adventure and I can not wait!

Corset

Hello you guys! Surprise post. Haha. :D

I've recently been on to something. So here I am!

Ar you guys familiar with corsets? They began becoming popular in 16th century Europe and saw it's Golden Age in the Victorian era (I'm very interested in the Victorian era fashion). Most people don't use corsets anymore, of course. But during that time, men and women used it to "shape" their bodies. To this day, the corset still exists, not as popular, but it still is around! :D



Ever wondered how they were voluptuous and have a small waist at the same time? Yep. Corsets.

Besides shaping the body, the corset is known to help with posture. I have terrible posture and usually sit with a slouch. And this is the reason why I decided to buy one. On top of that, I get a really good silhouette under my clothes, right? :'D

It is my first ever corset so even though I watched hours of YouTube videos and read extensively about corsets online, I know there would be some bumps on the road.

I'm expecting my new steel-boned  corset to arrive today or tomorrow so look forward to a new post soon. I'll give you more details!

I thought I'd share this experience with you guys. Let me know if you guys are interested in corsets too!

She looks mighty fabulous!

Liz Lisa Fukubukuro 2015 (Liz Lisa 福袋2015)

Image taken from the official Liz Lisa FB page.

It's that time of the year!

Yesterday, Liz Lisa announced pre-orders for the 2015 fukubukuro or lucky bag. Is it just me or are trunks getting more and more expensive each year? :'D

The 2015 bags are pretty but I prefer the 2014 ones. On top of the regular trunk, they also have a mini-trunk this year. It's SUPER cute but I don't know if it will be of any use to me. >///<

It's likely that I will go to Japan next year (crossing my fingers and praying hard!) but it's a shame it won't be on time for me to get fukubukuros. Next year, maybe! :P

I'm actually thinking of getting JugeETTA this year instead. I don't know.

Sad thing is, unlike last year, we don't get to see "actual" items in the announcement. They tell us what each bag may contain (like, they will say it will have a one piece inside and this and that) but no pictures. :(

Last year, I was eager to buy because I know I'd like the contents! >///<

Here is a low-res image of some of the options this year!

The mini-trunk is so cute!
If you notice, a My Melody trunk will also be available! :D

I'm actually more interested in the web-limited fukubukuro though. It's slightly more expensive but... I like it simpler like this.

But maybe I'll just get JugeETTA this year. Their trunk looks similar to the Liz Lisa web-limited one but it's in "lavender" color. Last year's color is better too, imo. :<

Soooo which ones are you guys wanting to get?:)
