♥ ❆ More Christmas fun ❆ ♥

Hi again! Yesterday we had a Christmas Eve dinner at my family friend's apartment. It was a small little gathering and we had a gift exchange at the end. We also got to use these cool Christmas poppers that had little prizes and jokes inside!
 We had so much food again! It was all so delicious. There was turkey, ham and a lot of veggies and mashed potatoes. My mom made my favorite smoked salmon salad too~ I had so many helpings of that hehe! (●´∀`●)
My food and popper!
Isn't it so pretty? ヽ(;▽;)ノ
There were so many presents under the tree it was insane! I've never seen so many gifts before. We all got our own stockings stuffed with goodies from the hosts. Also my favorite holiday show was on haha.
My favorite episode! LOL.
The tree~
A mountain of gifts!
Here are all the goodies I came home with~ I've never gotten so many before at once so it was all quite surprising! Look how nicely wrapped it all was~
I got lots of candy, $50 from my uncle, shower gel that smells like Japanese cherry blossoms, and an insulated tote bag! ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ
I was super excited for this dinner because I got to finally wear my beloved MA*RS dress! It's super warm and really pretty. The collar is detachable and very soft! I haven't been able to do any makeup recently because I got an eye infection. It's much better now but I played it safe and only did a little makeup with no lenses. 
Dress: MA*RS/Tights&Shoes: DreamV
I put on some accessories after I took this picture just in case anyone's wondering. I was just so excited to finally wear this baby out!
That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by~ I wish you all a lovely Christmas. Tell my how your holiday plans went! Until next time, have a wonderful holiday (´ω`★)

❄ Updates & Christmas potluck fun ☃

Hello hello everyone! Damn it's already been a month since the last time I posted huh? (god my life is boring/I really suck at blogging) I finished up my exams a while ago and I've just been working my butt off. I haven't had much free time lately but now that school's out of the way and Christmas is around the corner (in 15 minutes. I wrote this a week ago LOL.), I feel like I'll finally have some room to breathe.

Just some quick updates before we get to the good stuff! I got a new phone about a week ago~ I got the Samsung Galaxy S3 in white. I had to wait a few days because the shop didn't have the white phone in stock but it was well worth the wait!
I was going to wait before posting about this because I'm waiting for a case to arrive. Seeing as how I update pretty much once a month-ish, I thought I'd just throw this in here before it becomes "I got a new phone last month" news lol.

And if you're curious about the case, don't worry about it. There will definitely be a post on that!
I also did some Christmas themed nails. They're super simple but I felt they were necessary for the occasion.
My friends and I went out to a new sushi place the other day after seeing The Hobbit, which was an awesome movie!
My food!
My friend Steven's food~
 To celebrate Christmas, my friends and I decided to have a potluck/gift exchange. My boyfriend wanted to make mashed potatoes and I made pasta salad. There was so much food left over it was insane! There was a giant turkey, bread, shrimp, rice balls, fruit salad, baked zucchini, pie and stuffed mushrooms. Here comes the food porn~
My boyfriend labelled the food we bought
for the potluck in the fridge lol
Isn't he so cute? XD
Our feast!
I have no idea why this picture has
that split in color on the side :(
Stuffed mushrooms!
Look at all the goodness on the second
table in the back lol.
We had a small gift exchange after dinner. I got my boyfriend the Guild Wars 2 books. Our friend Branden (whose house we held this at) got a cookbook and Big Bang Theory T-shirt from us. I also got my other friend, Steven, the Bro Code and my friend Taewoo got a scarf! I got a Sephora gift card from Taewoo, a new highlighter/blush duo from Steven, and Lady Gaga's perfume from my boyfriend!
 That's all the holiday fun for this post! Stay tuned for more~

❇Foodporn & special gets❇

Hello everyone! Time sure flies by quick these days. I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since my last update! I've been working a lot lately and to be honest, not much has been going on (my life is so boring FML). It's finals season so everyone is working hard and studying. My classes are pretty much done now, all I have to worry about is my Japanese final in 2 weeks.
I went out with my boyfriend last Friday for our 46 month celebration. We went to one of my favorite restaurants in Yaletown called Hub. For those of you not from Vancouver, Yaletown is one of my favorite places. It has a very trendy yet nostalgic feel to it. Some of the roads are still made from brick and it's just beautiful there and it's littered with tons of restaurants and small shops. I would say it's right outside the central downtown area. I hope that gives you a feel of what it's like. I ordered my usual warm chicken salad and my boyfriend got the mac and cheese with crab meat. We also shared some hot chicken wings, which are the best we've ever had! I apologize for the crappy quality as these were taken with my ipod.
My salad~!
Chicken wings~
We also went for Korean food the other day because it was really cold outside. Hot soup and rice is probably the best remedy for the November chills!
My yummy beef stew
Kimchi! <3
Boyfriend's bibimbap
My favorite family friend (of course since I'm asian I'll call her my aunt), Aunt Yaya, owns a clothing distributing company or something like that with her husband. They have to move shops so they're getting rid of some of their inventory. She asked me to pick out some stuff and this is what I got:
These tank tops were the cutest thing ever so I got
every color she had!
Cute bow print cardigan
Simple white flowy top
I would have picked out more things but I felt really sick that day. I actually felt so horrible I ended up vomiting an hour later. I think my breakfast was bad or perhaps my mom just really sucks at driving lol. She drives like the car is a roller coaster ride, which is bad cause I'm super sensitive to that as I get motion sickness. (╯︵╰,) I'm going to go see her again this Saturday to maybe pick up some jeans. More on that in a later post.
Here are some things I got over the past month or so but didn't have time to take pictures of and show you guys. There's still some things hiding around in my room so this is all I managed to find that was new.
Cute peter pan collar print sweater from f21
Rings from f21
(the black one is a gift to a friend)
Little bear ear beanie also from f21
New bras from La Senza~
I know I said I'm trying to save money, but rest assured, everything here was on sale for cheap! Like the beanie was only $4. How could you not buy that?! I didn't get anything for Cyber Monday or Black Friday (I know that's an American thing but we had a lot of sales here too) so I thought the bras and the sweater were alright to pick up.
Finally, I was flipping through my ipod photos when I came across some old Halloween pics! I only saw a few costumes and managed to take a picture of 2 and a cool drawing I found at my boyfriend's school lol.
Thanks so much for reading! I hope things will get more interesting these next few weeks, especially after my exam. An eyelash review has been requested by one of my lovely readers, so please stay tuned for that. I think I'll also do a review for my new circle lenses as well. See you around next time!
