This is one of those entries whereby I ramble randomly about things that might not particularly be makeup focused. Or in this entry's context, not makeup focused at all!
One (very vague) connecting point would be that I wanted to post the 'main feature' here in the earlier glitter-fied post but that ran a little long so, here it stands now on it's own! This one feature then spiraled into this post of... well sheer randomness.
I had tweeted my woes about how crappy and gross my phone's earlier screen protector had become and Evonne, who chanced across my tweet, had very kindly came to my rescue. Now, I place my phone's screen protector in great regard because I cannot stand seeing a scratch of any sort of my screen. Not just normal smudges/smears but the hairline ones that never go away and imagine that, all over the screen protector! Yes, it was a crap protector I got from some random place so... I sort of knew it.
Evonne offered to give me a screen protector from her her (co-owned) store ahbengshop.sg so here you have it...
A blingingly new screen!
I know most girls have or had these bling protectors but it's my first, so let me be excited about it in my own little bubble. I've only had plain glossy ones thus far, which I like but the bling protector does make the phone look that somewhat prettier.
The bling is mostly obvious under a light source and if your display is on, you barely see it unless it catches the light. Gorgeous, purely from a girl's point of view of course. Most guys that have seen this went, what the...
I had this protector since the end of last week but never got an appropriate time to showcase it till now, ridding on the blingness of the earlier post!
This is available on ahbengshop.sg for S$4.50 and I thank Evonne for saving my tech life, again! I have seen some bling protectors glisten with pink-ish and blue-ish sparkles but ths one is purely silver/white, no color to it which I much prefer.
Alrightey, one topic down!
To be honest I have an idea of what to write in this entry but for the most part I'm really just making it up as I go. That's what we do with journals, yes?
I believe I did mention something about roller-blading much earlier (perhaps my Shu Uemura foundation review?) but I've yet to feature my new best friends so... here they are!
It was a case of boyfriend and I thinking to go blading at the East Coast so it snowballed from thinking to rent blades to eventually purchasing our own. I'm not sure how it evolved but at the end of it I think it's a good investment and motivation to take this 2012 fitness thing seriously!
The blades I have here are by the brand K2 in the model Rita, I got them on offer for about S$190 plus. The original retail value was S$260 or something, I can't recall now.
Boyfriend and I did some research and K2, along with SEBA, turned out to be one of the more popular brands to invest in. Royal Sporting House/World of Sports etc stocks a brand called Rollerblade which is okay but for the price they go for there, you can invest in K2s or SEBAs instead, which are said to be better.
Okay a lot of roller blading talk there but I like the K2 Womens models because they come with a cause!
They are tied up with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, which I thought was an interesting move for a blading company.
Boyfriend picked up his blades from a separate store and he, being the pro boy that he is, picked up freestyle skates without brakes.
His skates are SEBA and made for more freestyle/street skating with the sturdier boot. Mine looks so much more like a shoe compared to his....
In the long run if you average it out, having your own skates means more freedom to skate at your own time and works out cheaper than renting, even if you throw in the cost of arm/knee guards and all.
Seems like I had quite a bit to ramble out. Lastly, I thought I would just share my obsession with Dream High 2!
I loved Dream HIgh 1 so much that I would look forward to catching it every single week without fail and yes, it was one of those rare times where I watched a drama as it aired instead of waiting for it to be over and watch it in my own time.
Upon hearing there were doing a season 2 with a whole different storyline, I was skeptical - very skeptical. I was almost prepared to not like it but as it turns out I don't think I can bring myself to hate anything from the Dream High production.
Though it's only been 3 episodes so far, I really do like it. The new cast is doing a good job and the storyline seems to be a little more thought through this time and less straight-forward but hey it's only 3 episodes, I can't claim that.
It's been awhile since I've idled away my time watching dramas or variety shows and this drama may very well be the death of my sleeping hours but.... hell, Jiyeon's so cute in this, Jin Woon's acting is so good and Sora is doing a good job. I don't want to comment on JB... because he's a 94'er? That's like... young, so anyway.... that's about it!
Incase you're wondering, I catch Dream High 2 from youtube because this way I can watch it on my way to work.
Thanks for reading! I do hope you all don't mind rambly posts as such, I find it nice to stray and talk about other miscellaneous things but at the end of it, it's still a makeup space so if it bothers you, let me know!
