Blog Back-log

I'm back with a vengeance. As promised.

First: The Office Party
I don't think there's anything to be said, honestly. I just wanted to share the pictures. Teehee.

The bossing, me, officemates, and beer (although mine's a cocktail and it's gooooooood).

Group picture. You can probably tell that some of us (me included) were looking at the LCD instead of the lens. Hehehe.

I actually don't know what is up with this picture but my guess is it's because we all look very very drunk (and probably are).

Group pic before going home. See how happy we are? No sign of stress at all. That's because we're drunk.

Next: The MAC Addiction
Like they say, once you go MAC, you never go back. Although I do fear I'm breaking out from Studio Fix Fluid. Oh noes.

To date I have three MAC membership cards - one for Tokyu Shibuya, one for Odakyu Shinjuku, and another for Isetan Shinjuku, which is my favorite because the MUAs are very nice and friendly and pretty and it's also the biggest.

This is my loot so far. It's not a lot, but considering I accumulated these in a little over a month I'd say it's a handful.

Studio Fix Fluid (NC25), Brush Cleanser, Fix+, Studio Finish Concealer (NC20 & NC30), Blush (Dollymix), Studio Fix Powder (NC30), Mineralized Skinfinish Natural (Medium), 109 Contour Brush, and 187 Stippling Brush. It's a handful, alright.

So far, I'm liking the Stufio Fix Powder and the blush. The latter is actually an impulse buy, just because I was so proud of myself for being able to read "Dollymix" in Katakana ("da-ri-mik-ku-su... Dollymix! Is this Dollymix? Yes? OK, kaitai-desu"). It's a really pretty pink, and I use it when I'm in a hurry. I like NARS Exhibit A better, but if not applied carefully you risk giving yourself a virtual bitchslap.

At any rate, I don't intend to add to the haul anytime soon, I do think I have enough. I visited the MAC store yesterday, and for the life of me I actually can't find anything to buy. Negative EQ has its limits, or so it seems. We'll see.

Last: Snowboarding 102

It's really not for me. Although I was able to do one graceful stop (read: I stopped without whipping up a snowstorm), and I finally figured out how to control the board a teeny bit. But, I don't really enjoy the speed. I'm really no daredevil. Twas fun though, and I wouldn't discount myself from going snowboarding anytime soon.

And we're done.
