Let’s prove the Mayans wrong

Hey Jujubes

So, Happy New Year WP!  Hope you’re New Year’s Eve was great.  Did you watch the Dick Clark’s Countdown to New Year?  I watch that pretty much every year and I wait until midnight, so the other countdown’s don’t intrigue me LOL.

Without further ado, LEGGO!

BTW, sorry about the short-ish post this week.  I have finals and have been studying like crazy, so i didn’t have much time for anything else but sitting with my textbooks.  I promise a jumbo post next time! 

~✮~The One that Got Away~✮~

Verse: iamobsessedwithnailpolish.com: NOTD/ Review!

Refrain: Contest Info/ The Key!

Chorus:  The Best of 2012

Bridge: QOTD

(BTW guys, I know this song so well & for so long that I typed out the lyrics…and me and Janine found this song BEFORE it got popular 😀 well janine did, and she told me before it became popular…now I’m confusing you all XP)

Verse:

Summer after highschool, when we first met

We’d make out in your mustang, to Radio Head

And on my 18th birthday

We got matching tattoos

 iamobsessedwithnailpolish.com: NOTD[s]/Review!:

This week’s edition: Color Club Holiday Splendor

This week, I decided to try out a new polish I recently bought at Bed Bath and Beyond from Color  Club.  One word: gorgeous.

In real life, its a really intense teal green jelly jam packed with holographic sparkles.  When it hits the light, BOOM!  Disco ball of rainbow.

Here's and out of focus shot to catch the holographic beauty of this polish.

 Let’s just take a moment to be in awe of the gorgeous sparkle of this polish in the photo above.  Is that not the most gorgeous thing you’ve ever seen?

On the formula, it has a nice consistency- not too thick, not too thin- and is opaque in two coats.  However, it tends to eat top coat, so if you don’t put two coats of clear polish on top, it will look flat and chip like a mother.  Despite its chip-tasticness, I really don’t mind; the color itself is the selling point of the polish for me, and wearing time is not a problem.  It would be nice if it lasted longer though, LOL.

Refrain

Used to steal your parent’s liqour

And climb to the roof

Talk about our future, like we had a clue

Never knew that one day, I’d be losing you

Contest Info/ The Key!:

So, if you guys didn’t see, we have a couple of new pages.

First there is “The Journey of P&P” .  That one’s pretty self explanatory.

Then we added “The Key”.  This one’s a little tricky.  If you can’t tell, when you click on the page, it’s password protected.  That’s because it’s special.  There, we post things such as exclusive pictures, some gossip, what we are actually thinking as people behind the computer screen.  This way, when we trust you enough and you are a very loyal subscriber, you will know us a little more personally.

Now for the “Contest” Page.  We are going to be holding a contest, with a $20 beauty/fashion related gift and the password to the key!  There will be 10 contestants with 2 people being eliminated at every challenge until we get the winner.  For more information on it, got to the page here.

Chorus:

But in another life, I would be your girl

Yeah we’d be full of promises

Be us against the world.

Yeah in another life, I would make you stay

So I wouldn’t have to say you were

The one that got away.

THE STUFF OF SATURDAYS: deck the hall, bruise your hand.

hey.

Before I really even start, I would like to wish you all…HAPPY HOLIDAYS [whichever one(s) you celebrate] AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

So wehhhhhhhhhlcome back, all you Janinjas. I love you all! And I love WordPress because it gives me an outlet for all my brain juice. x]

If you can tell where the title of this post is from…you may or may not have a higher chance of getting a prize in the near future! ;] *wink if there ever was one.* It will help you out if you decide to enter the contest!

Please read the whole thing. I’ll send you cyber cookies. 🙂 They’re invisible though, so good luck finding them. 😛 And if you read the whole thing, I swear you‘re gonna get something out of it. (Like CONTEST PRIZES MAYBE?!? HUH, HUH?) Also, I’m sorry, I know it’s long.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
so let’s see whats in store for today.
APPETIZER: Music of the Week Day Week
ENTREE: Nails Galore! (Review+NOTW)
DESSERT: Let it snow, baby. Let it reindeer. Contest+The Key
DOGGIE BAG: Blurb of the Day
please note that “Contest+The Key” is orange. clearly, it means something.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

appetizer

Music.

I have a lot of music for you guys this week, and you may want to pay attention. It will affect you if you want to enter in the contest I will talk about later.

Song of the Week Day Week

This week, I actually have a few songs (seeing as I haven’t posted for about a month…sorry, the constant schedule changes kinda muffed things up).

My favorite songs right now are “The Tables Are Numbered for a Reason, Honey, You Just Haven’t Thought of It Yet” by Panic! at the Disco and “What a Catch, Donnie” by Fall Out Boy. Earlier this week, however I really liked “The Good Left Undone” by Rise Against. The lyrics are phenomenal. I’m also loving “Smile Like You Mean It” by the Killers, which is actually one of my favorite songs of all time!

My Favorite Band (of the Moment)

My favorite band, as of now, is probably Panic! at the Disco, even though they are one of my all-time favorites. I love almost their songs, and A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out is probably the best album of all time. OF ALL TIME! Some other songs by them that I’m really enjoying that aren’t listed above (I didn’t want to fill it with just P!ATD songs) are “I Constantly Thank God for Esteban” and “But It’s Better If You Do”.

And it’s always helpful that Brendon Urie is really, really nice to look at. xP Also, did you hear? …Brendon Urie’s getting married! He’s engaged!!! 🙂

PAAAAAAAAANNNNNNIIIIIIIIIC!!!!!!!

Bands I’ll Always Listen To. No Matter What. This Week’s Edition: PARAMORE! Part Deux.

(Picture from: pammiepedia.com)

It’s common knowledge that I love Paramore. I talked about them in my first post! I do realize that I only wrote 3 songs that I liked, so I figured I’ll write all of them! I’ll go by album to make it more organized…

ALL WE KNOW IS FALLING: Pressure, Emergency, Franklin, and My Heart.

RIOT!: For a Pessimist, I’m Pretty Optimistic, That’s What You Get, Hallelujah, Misery Business, Miracle, crushcrushcrush, Fences, and Born for This.

BRAND NEW EYES: Careful, Ignorance, Playing God, Brick by Boring Brick, The Only Exception, and All I Wanted.

I also really like “Monster”, which was a single. 🙂

There go our appetizers. Or hors d’oeuvres as the lovely French call them. Let’s move on to the entree.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

entree

Nails Galore! 

You’re mighty hungry today, aren’t you? I have some, I lied, A LOT of stuff to show you guys today! Some is actually Ju’s, but, oh, well. Too bad. 😉

Review- Holidaze Colors!

For Christmas, I decided to go with alternating red and green nails. For red, I used Revlon Cherries in the Snow, and for my green, I used Wet n’ Wild Jade.

Here are some pics of the finished product! I used 1 coat of Cherries and 3 coats of Jade.

Let’s begin the reviews…Let’s start of with Revlon Cherries in the Snow. One word- great! It was a one-coater, honest-to-God. It wasn’t streaky, and went on smoothly and easily. No bubbling either, which was great, because otherwise I would have…I don’t even know. Probably chucked the bottle out the window and dented someone’s car on accident. The only thing was that with this polish, the tip wear was SUPER EXTREME, as in tips missing after 2 days. With a good top coat, however, I’m sure the tip wear would be minimal.

As for Wet n’ Wild Jade, it was REALLY sheer, but I got it opaque in 3 coats, which is better than some polishes I’ve seen. There was barely any tip wear, and I had it on for a week, which was nice. It went on really nicely too. 🙂 That’s all the reviews for these polishes!

NOTW+Review- Alert the police…I’m wearing pink!

This week, I went with dark colors…Revlon Scandalous (it used to be called “Facets of Fuchsia”), which I borrowed from Ju. It’s a sheer black, buildable base with large fuchsia hex glitter and small pink glitter suspended in it. It looks AMAZING, and is totally down my alley. 😀 Here are some pictures! 😛

Sorry about the messiness...I was in a hurry.

The following pictures are all from 1 week later. It’s amazing how little tip wear there was (AND NO CHIPS!!!! :D), but it was weird, because some of the glitter CAME OFF. Also, some of the glitter TURNED SILVER…what the heck?

OMG I LOOK SO PALE!

That’s all for the nails! Now, finally, we can move onto dessert!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

dessert

Let it snow, baby. Let it reindeer. The Contest+The Key

Some of you might be thinking that this heading has NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING, but it should help you out with finding out the title. So let me start talking about the latter of the first item in the heading- The Key.

As you may or may not have noticed, we’ve got some new pages! Though The Journey of P&P is pretty self-explanatory, The Key takes a little more work.

It’s password protected. Every week, we will give you a clue that should help you out on figuring out the password. Inside is all our deepest, darkest secrets. (Okay, not really. But it’s got stuff in there that’s embarrassing and such. xP) This weeks clue is…

YouTube.

Now for our contest…we will have 10 contestants total. In order to enter, comment on the “Contest!” page. Every week, there will be a challenge, and 2 people will be eliminated. Look at the “Contest!” page for more details. The winner will receive the password to “The Key” and a box of prizes, including nail polish (good brands, I assure you), eyeliner, lip gloss, and more!

That’s it for our delicious (if I do say so myself, and I do) desserts!

But wait, there’s more! (Love it when they say that in commercials x]) Doggie bags to bring home!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blurb of the Day

JennaMarbles!

If you watch JennaMarbles on YouTube, you’ll remember this! 🙂

That’s all for today, folks! Thanks for reading! Please comment and/or like if you think it’s worthy!

URGENT!

There, that got your attention, huh?

Well, I need all my subscribers to advise me on some stuff.

So I have some polls.  Sorry for lack of posting from your P&P girls, just the holidays have eaten us up.  We will post soon, however, and for the new year we have a new posting schedule [again]

Every Saturday a post will be posted.  Makes it simple

Also I put up two new pages; “The Journey of P&P” and “The Key”.  Please check them out.  Do you like them?

Sorry for the short post, I’m not one for these, but this was urgent.

WEDNESDAY WORDIES: Walking in a Winter Wonderland [I know…its not a Wednesday…:P]

Hello my Jujubes,

So guess what?  Just guess! I’m going to be blogging it up on here!

I have a lot of time and a computer.  You know what that means, right?

THE 12 DAY OF BLOGMAS 😀

I will have a page just for it!  Evon is doing it on her Youtube channel as well, so I shall put both on that page.  By the time I post this I will have already posted it, but yeah!  I’m excited 😀

[Update 11/22: We have stopped updating the page due to lack of viewers/utter laziness of writers, but Evon is still doing Vlogmas on her beauty channel, so go check that out!  BTW, we will be doing a giant collaboration post for Christmas/New Years, which will be up soon!]

So today, as promised, will have two beauty parts!  And some polls 😀

BTW, can you guys wait for Christmas? I know I can’t!  (:

~✮~Dark Blue~✮~

Verse: Polly Wolly Polls!

Chorus: Review: Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus

Verse Numero 2: Skincare Spectaculars and Haircare Hopefuls

Bridge:  A Rant on Fake People

Verse:

I have (I have) you breathing down my neck (breathing down my neck)
I don’t (don’t know) what you could possibly expect under this condition so
I’ll wait (I’ll wait) for the ambulance to come (ambulance to come)
Pick us up off the floor
What did you possibly expect under this condition so

Polly Wolly Polls:

So, as you can tell, I decorated P&P for the holiday season!  But I want your opinion…

Also, me and Janine have decided on a new posting schedule.  I will post every other Wednesday, Janine will post every other Saturday (the week I post, she won’t post), and Evon will post on any day that isn’t close to ours (at least 3-4 days apart) Do you guys like this? Or would your rather have something different?

Chorus:

Slow down.. this night’s a perfect shade of
Dark blue (dark blue)
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room when I’m here with you
I said the world could be burning (burning) down
Dark blue (dark blue)
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room well I’m here with you
I said the world could be burning ’til there’s nothing but dark blue..
Just dark blue

REVIEW- Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus:

[Sorry for use of generic pics, I couldn’t get the pics from my camera onto my computer]

I just bought this lip balm a few days ago at Target for about 4 dollars.  After trying it out for the past few days, I have collected enough opinions and points about the product to do a review!

So, the lip balm comes in a cardboard tube that kind of  looks like an actual lip balm.  Even Janine thought it was…at first.  Until I broke the news to her.  I felt like I was her Santa wasn’t real….to which she responds “SANTA’S NOT REAL??!” (She knows Santa’s not real…BTW SHE’S RIGHT NEXT TO ME )

The lip balm itself is great, it’s very moisturizing and smooth.  However, I wished it had the normal Burt’s Bees smell than the sickly sweet flower smell.

It doesn’t go on very opaque, it’s very sheer. However, it gives a nice healthy look to the lips, which I really like.

Overall, I would recommend it to all you guys if you was a moisturizing lip balm with a nice moisturizing texture that gives the lips a healthy color

Verse Numero 2:

This flood (this flood) is slowly rising up swallowing the ground
Beneath my feet, Tell me how anybody thinks under this condition so
I’ll swim (I’ll swim) as the water rises up, the sun is sinking down
And now all I can see are the planets in a row
Suggesting it’s best that I slow down

Skincare Spectaculars and Haircare Hopefuls:

SKINCARE SPECTACULARS:

BEST DAY MOISTURIZER:

The Winner:

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

This moisturizer is awesome!  I love how it sinks in quickly and adds moisture at the same time.  It doesn’t feel greasy, and is super refreshing when you wake up in the morning!

BEST NIGHT CREAM:

The Winner

Benefit B-right Total Moisture Cream

This is more of a heavy duty moisturizer for the night time.  It pretty much surges moisture into my skin, which is amazing for me since my skin refuses to not be dry usually!   I only have a mini size currently, but I am definitely going to buy the full size!

BEST CLEANSER:

The Winner:

L’oreal Go 360 Clean for Sensitive Skin

This does a great job of really throughly cleaning my skin and ridding my pores of oil and dirt.  It also doesn’t irritate my skin like most cleansers, and doesn’t completely dry out my already flaky face.

BEST EXFOLIATER:

The Winner

St.Ives Apricot Scrub – Acne Clearing

I love this scrub so so so much.  It helps me with my occasional breakouts, rubs away my dry skin, and makes my skin feel baby soft without me feeling like I’m using rocks to tear my skin off 😀

BEST LIPBALM:

CO Bigelow Rose Salve

This stuff is amazing for making chapped lips smooth and un-flaky.  It really sends moisture to your lips without feeling too greasy.

HAIRCARE HOPEFULS

Shampoo of the Moment:

Sexy Straight Hair Shampoo

This shampoo is okay.  I feel like I have to use it multiple times in one shower (by that I mean twice) to make my hair actually feel clean.  Overall, it’s not worth the 12 dollars I bought it for.

Conditioner of the Moment:

Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner:

I LOVE this conditioner.  It’s pretty much a life saver for my ends, because I’m growing it out so it tends to be dry.  I love love love it, and definitely recommend it!

Favorite Heat Protectant:

KQC Thermal Shine Heat Protectant:

I really like how it adds shine and protects my hair when I use heat.  I can’t really say much for this since I don’t know if it works or not :/ lol.

Favorite Hair Treatment:

Josie Maran Argan Oil:

Best freaking haircare thing I have ever, ever purchased.  It adds a beautiful shine to my hair, and helps my dry ends so, so much.

Bridge:

We were boxing
We were boxing the stars
We were boxing (we were boxing)
You were swinging for Mars
And then the water reached the West Coast
And took the power lines (the power lines)
And it was me and you (this could last forever)
And the whole town under water
There was nothing we could do
It was dark blue

A Rant on Fake People:

You know what makes me laugh?  When people are so threatened by you that they start throwing accusations in your face.

But you know what they say:  “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words cannot hurt me.”

But words can hurt my blog.  So, to protect my baby (my blog is practically my child; I love it to pieces!), I am going to respond.

I am practically in a fit of rage right now.  Minus the fit part, but I make up the physical part with the mental frustration.

I’m not going to say names.  You are just going to have to guess.

Why would I be threatened by a freaking biotch who can’t write her own posts and be truthful and real to her loyal subscribers?

I’m not going to explain myself to you.  You don’t deserve one.

Sorry about that guys.  I just have to address this certain someone.  They know who they are.

Well, that completes my post!  I hope you guys enjoyed!

With Love,

Juju

THE STUFF OF SATURDAYS: it’s not a saturday. i know.

hey.

Yes. I’m aware it’s not a Saturday, okay?

Jeez.

Hello, my dahhh-ling pretty-in-punks! Here’s another post!

I’m doing the tag that Ju did in her last post. I loved the questions and I thought it’d be a good way to get to know me! (LOLZ I’m so egocentric!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

so let’s see what’s in store for today.

APPETIZER: Music of the Week Day Week

ENTREE: That tag from Ju’s last post.

DESSERT: Life as I know it.

DOGGIE BAG: Blurb of the Day

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

appetizer

Music.

Song of the Week Day Week

This week, it’s gotta be “Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes” by Fall Out Boy. Love the lyrics: “Imperfect boys with their perfect lives, nobody wants to hear you sing about tragedy”, “I’m a loose bolt of a complete machine”, and “What a match- I’m half-doomed and  you’re semi-sweet”. ♥

My Favorite Band (of the Moment)

BOWLING FOR SOUP! Yeah, baby! Love their classic “1985”, as well as “Almost”, and “Girl All the Bad Guys Want”.

(Picture from: blogs.dallasobserver.com)

Not much else to say about that…

Bands I’ll Always Listen To. No Matter What. This Week’s Edition: ALL TIME LOW PART 2 AND PANIC! AT THE DISCO!

So I realized that, in last week’s post, I basically just talked about Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low, and didn’t say any of the songs I liked. “Break Your Little Heart”, “Damned If I Do Ya”, “Six Feet Under the Stars”, “Dear Maria, Count Me In”, “Stella”, “Hello Brooklyn”, “Jasey Rae”, “Coffee Shop Soundtrack”, and “Stay Awake” are some of my favorites. “I Feel Like Dancing” is amazing as well! Love the video!

Here’s the lyrics video to “Break Your Little Heart”, which is my all-time favorite song!

Now for Panic! at the Disco! I love them so much, I wrote “PANIC! AT THE DISCO ♥” on my binder! Their music videos are FANTABULOUS and so are their songs…and so is BRENDON URIE! 😛 I love “Nine in the Afternoon”, “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”, “The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage”, “Nails for Breakfast, Tacks for Snacks”, “Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off”, “The Ballad of Mona Lisa”, “Ready To Go”, “Build God, Then We’ll Talk”, “The Green Gentleman”, “New Perspective”, and, last but not least, “London Beckons Songs About Money Written by Machines”. PHEW! Here are some of their songs/music videos.

‘Cuz We’re Freaky Like That- Ju’s 15 Weird Questions Tag!

1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?

Uh…hm. LZ! It means lazy. My dad and my brother call me that! Weird? Definitely.

2. What’s a weird habit of yours?

I cross my legs twice, instead of the regular once? I run my fingers through my hair a lot, too, which is supposed to cause your hair to get more oily, but I do it anyway. I know, I’m such a REBEL! LOL(:

3. Do you have any weird phobias?

Spiders. But not in the traditional sense. I’m scared of swallowing spiders in my sleep. I’m also ridiculously afraid of cameras pointed in my direction that are not in my hand. (Basically, I’m scared of getting pictures taken of me.)

4. What’s a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you’re alone?

Price Tag by Jessie J! As much as I claim to hate mainstream music (which I do), I love that song! It’s just so catchy! I also love Best Friend by Jason Chen! I belt out Mr. Know It All by Kelly Clarkson all the time, not sure why. 🙂

5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?

I have a lot of them. I HATE it when people eat in front of me and I don’t have anything to eat. Also hate it when people are hypocrites and they don’t realize it, or they try to take a picture of me. I get super irritated when I close a door, and then somebody comes in, leaves, and doesn’t close the door again.

6. What’s one of your nervous habits?

I pick at my nail polish, and at the end of the week, my nails are destroyed.

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?

The middle?

8. What was your first stuffed animal and it’s name?

I had a stuffed dinosaur. I got it the day I was born, so I don’t really remember what I named it…It got retired really quickly, because I became obsessed with Beanie Babies. xD

9. What drink do you ALWAYS order at Starbucks?

A strawberry smoothie or a hot chocolate. I hate the aftertaste of coffee, so I never EVER order that! 😛

10. What’s the beauty rule you preach…but never ACTUALLY practice?

“Always use a base coat and a top coat!” I’m too lazy to actually do this step, and I know it’s not good for me… but I don’t do it.

11. Which way do you face in the shower?

All directions? I don’t know…I spin around in the shower. (Not quickly. I’d fall over. I’m SUPER clumsy.)

12. Do you have any weird “body skills”?

I can make a tongue taco and cross my legs twice, but that’s about the extent of my abilities. *SHAME*

13. What’s your favorite “comfort food”/food that’s “bad” but you love to eat it anyways?

ICE CREAM! Of almost any flavor! If it’s cold, creamy, and sweet, chances are, I’ll eat it! ♥

14. What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?

I don’t know…I tend to make up a lot of phrases and then forget them. But I’m really sarcastic, so I tend to just say the opposite of what I happen to be thinking.

15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?

A giant t-shirt and shorts! Yes, even in winter. If I wear long pants to sleep, I get nightmares of getting ensnared in a trap and getting captured. And then I get no sleep. No sleep=CRANKY JANINE!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

dessert

Life as I know it.

I’m officially a nerd. I went to a math competition on Saturday and I got a trophy. Gah, this doesn’t help my reputation as the punky chick! LOL(:

Also I was going to paint my nails today, but I broke the tops off 2 nails and now I have short, ugly nails.

This is the worst dessert ever, and I know it. Sorry. I promise there will be a better post next week!

PS: I’m singing on TV on December 20, in Chinese and Swahili. SHOOT ME NOW! GRRRRRRRRRRRR.

Let’s Get Freaky!

Hello Jujubes,

So I went to the store today, and guess what I saw? A CANDY CALLED “JUJUBES”.  I bought them and they taste pretty good!  Their multicolored chewy candies  😀 Awesome or what?

Well, this week was…better than last week!  I got rubbers bands for my braces.  Stupid braces…

Now my teeth AND jaw hurt.  And then my head hurts from all the jaw aches.

ANYWAYS, today’s song is…

~✮~Misery Business~✮~

Verse: My Life in a Nutshell

Refrain: Get Your Freak On! 15 Weird Question Tag

Chorus: QOTD

Verse:

I’m in the business of misery,
Let’s take it from the top.
She’s got a body like an hourglass that’s ticking like a clock.
It’s a matter of time before we all run out,
When I thought he was mine she caught him by the mouth.

My Life in a Nutshell:

So this past week was pretty exciting, for my life, which is very boring usually.

Thursday 11/24: Thanksgiving! I just chilled out and went to a family gathering.  I ate way too much (not uncommon on Turkey Day!)  I had turkey (duh), rice (ay-sian) with gravy, stuffing, salmon sashimi (raw salmon, kind of like sushi), california roll (sushi!!), burrito (it was a giant burrito cut into small pieces (:), pumpkin bread (I made it 😀 it was pretty good too), a little bit of pumpkin and banana cream pie (HEAVEN <3), and homemade mochi (my grandma makes the BEST).  As you can tell, I ate a LOT.  I didn’t eat dinner lol.

Friday 11/25: This day was more exciting.  I have way too many pictures so I’m going to do a gallery lol.

First we went the Universal City Walk and just walked around a little bit.  My sister’s boyfriend and I took a bunch of picture before going to the actual Universal Studios(1st row of pictures).  After we past the gate, we wanted to go on the Universal Tour because last time we went later, and the wait was long and it was super cold (2nd row of pictures).  We were lucky that the wait was only 20 minutes while we were entertained by the clips of old movies playing LOL.  My sister had a little confusion with the lines (so smart…=_=) so we had delays, but in the end we all got a seat together.  I must say so myself, our tour guide was pretty awesome!  She was bubbly and funny and made the tour that much better :).  Anyways, first we toured through all the New York City Sets where a bunch of movies (can’t remember names, I was too busy taking pics) have been filmed (Rows 3-5).  Then we went on to the main part of the tour, which is King Kong 360 3D .  I must say that it is pretty freaking intense.  The tour bus went back and forth and the 3D effects were super realistic.

After that we went to the Simpsons area went into the shop to look at the super awesome stuff!  They had these amazing cup and plushies.  I’m a sucker for that kind of stuff.

Then we went on the actual Simpsons ride, and it was….eh.   I think Back to the Future was better!

We were all hungry after the Simpsons ride, so we stopped at the near by Panda Express to get some lunch.  One word: bad.  You couldn’t make your own plate, the fried rice was burnt, and the orange chicken was dry and way too spicy.  It was a big disappointment.

Then I got Dippin’ Dots ice cream after debating about going on “The Mummy” and “Jurassic Park: The Ride”.  Being scared of heights and drops, they bought me some chocolate Dippin’ Dots ice cream.  It was delicious (:

We went to Waterworld next, and I must say good job to the pyrotechnical engineers for making water catch on fire!

Then we went to the House of Horrors, and oh.my.gawd.  It was so freaking scary.  I don’t even want to talk about it, I lost my voice when I got out because of my excessive screaming.  Dark+Flashing Lights+Random People Popping Out= Screaming Juju

Then we went to Universal City Walk once again.  I went to Lush and I got some goodies! Next week will have a haul (:

Saturday 11/26: I just chilled out, got Janine’s present (she knows what it is) and texted people.  I know, so interesting.

(Sunday is not available due to absolute boringness)

Monday 11/28: I was very sad to have to get up for my 0 period after a long weekend of sleeping in and going to bed late.  It’s school, what do you expect?  Nothing much really happened, just got a lot of homework

Refrain:

I waited eight long months,
She finally set him free.
I told him I can’t lie he was the only one for me.
Two weeks and we had caught on fire,
She’s got it out for me,
But I wear the biggest smile

 Get Your Freak On! 15 Weird Question Tag:

#1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?

My mom and dad call me Julie, and my friends call me Ju, Juju, Jub, Jubbers, etc.

#2. What’s a weird habit of yours?

I like to put my feet on the seat and crossing my legs when I sit.  Because I am so short (4’11”), my feet usually don’t touch the ground when I sit.  Being very uncomfortable to have your feet hanging for a long period of time, I just pull them up naturally xD

#3. Do you have any weird phobias?

I have an abnormal fear that any sharp object will by accident (or on purpose) some how get to my eye and poke my eyes out/ make me blind.  Especially needles LOL.

#4. What’s a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you’re alone?

Chinese pop.  And it’s not pretty, let me tell you.  I get all the tones wrong, someone *cough cough* JANINE *cough cough* makes fun of me when she hears me belt out some random Chinese song.  LOL, good times, good times.

#5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?

When people say I copy them.  Like come on, no one is completely original.  Ponder that a little bit.  I also can’t STAND when people try to look good to other people by putting me down.  It’s like dude, you’re just making yourself look like a total self- conscious bitch that can’t feel good about herself without putting someone down.  And when I can’t seem to remember the one word I want to use and it bugs me the whole day/night.  Has that ever happened to you guys?

#6. What’s one of your nervous habits?

I used to bite my nails when I got nervous, which is why I started to paint my nails regularly so I don’t mangle my nails into jagged stumps.  Now, I have created the habit of pealing off nail polish, and I have invested in a good top coat and base coat to prevent me from destroying my manicure XD.  Now, I just have a habit of touching my face which causes me to break out.  My nervous habits tend to not have the best outcomes…

#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?

I sleep on the side closest to the light because I read before going to bed so I just tend to sleep there.  But I usual like to travel around my bed and sometimes I end up waking up upside-down or in some crazy position :/.

#8. What was your first stuffed animal && it’s name?

I had this moose stuffed animal which I named Moosey (I know, I was a very creative child), but I carried that thing around with me everywhere!

#9. What’s the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?

Starbucks Double Choclatey Chip Frappucino.  Every.single.time.  I don’t dig coffee.  But I love my fraps (:

#10. What’s the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?

Priming my eyelids before eyeshadow XD.  I don’t actually own a legitimate primer, so I don’t really use it because it doesn’t do squat.

#11. Which way do you face in the shower?

Both ways, depending what I am doing.  For example, when I’m washing my face I face the shower head, and when I’m just shaving and stuff I face away.

#12. Do you have any ‘weird’ body ‘skills’?

Well…I can flip my tongue over…thats about it.  I can’t really do anything cool…

#13. What’s your favorite ‘comfort food’/food thats ‘bad’ but you love to eat it anyways?

KFC.  Super Crispy Chicken with biscuits.  That is heaven right there.

#14. What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?

I say “Whoa, you are SO smart” *sarcasm intended* when someone does something really un-smart/ not common sens-ical.  I also like to make up words/ phrases that are totally not correct grammar.  Examples above.

#15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?

I just wear a big T-shirt and some pajama pants (:  Sometimes in the summer I wear shorts instead of pants, but yeah…its pretty standard dress

Chorus

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now

But God, does it feel so good
‘Cause I got him where I want him now
And if you could then you know you would
‘Cause God, it just feels so
It just feels so good

QOTD:

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe”

-Albert Einstein

BTW guys, sorry for my absence, I got sick, and then there was some scheduling issues.  And sorry about not beauty part in this episode of the Wednesday Wordifuls (should i call it that? comment below!), I just wasn’t feeling it.  Definitely two beauty parts in the next post though!!  Hopefully my gallery of 87 pics will quench your post thirst (:!

Have a beautiful day!
