Am I ready?

Today at work my coworker asked me a question that I don't think when I can really ready to answer. She asked "how did your parents passed away?". If someone asked me where my parents are, my normal answers were either they r resting in Vietnam, give or take whatever they think because it is somewhat the truth. Or I would tell them the official truth that they passed away with a bit of smile on my face so they know that I am ok and hopefully they don't ask anymore question about the death of my parents. It has been 8 years, 1 month and 23 days since my mom left and 8 years and 22 days since daddy left my brother and I. I figure it is long enough to talk about it and not get super emotional about it. I answered my coworker her question with a bit of detail. The first 15 mins into the convo I was going strong. Then when it comes to how I feel about their death, I can feel my voice started shaking and emotions from sad, anger, regrets and everything else rushed through all at once. I couldn't answer her. I am now sitting in this cold room (literally) thinking to myself :am I ready to talk about my feeling? I know I had been bidding it for years. I know I am physically ready but am I mentally ready? The fact that I'm still counting the days since they passdd away, i dont think im ready yet, at least not right now. Then again When will I be? Is it because of the guilt or the blame that is stopping me? <3 until then

I'M BACK!

Sorry I've been MIA. I have been super busy since I get back from my Asia Trip. I promised so many things to do before the trip. So sorry!

Here is a video of what my boyfriend and I did in Hawaii (Just the water activities).

We did a lot of things in such a short time in Hawaii.  We were there for only 3 days and half then head to our Asia Trip.  The reason we went to Hawaii was for my boyfriend's cousin's wedding.  Also it was a pleasant stop before heading out.

I will do more briefly day by day on my vacation. Come back for more. :D

Until then,
Litoh Bao

First stop: Hawaii

 The day is here! The first stop of our first Asia Tour starts from San Diego Airport to Hawaii for a wedding. I can't wait to get out of here! I will update more when I get a chance to upload Hawaii pictures. Today, December 18, 2011 is actually my last day in Hawaii. I am exhausted with all the previous activities and last couple activities planned for today. I have to say I love Hawaii and I'm getting to miss it already, even though I am still here. It is a great place to get away from the cold from the mainland.

It is only 7 AM here in Hawaii. I think I should head out for some local food and drinks.
I promise to post up pictures as soon as I have time. :D

<3 Until then.

I'm Free!

I finally finished with my last final for this semester. It has been a busy semester for me.  But now it is time for me to Pack, Pack and PACK! I'm so excited for our first Asia Trip. This will be the first time my boyfriend and I are going out of the country together. I'm still waiting for the Milani Cosmetics orders to arrive so I can do a Black Friday and Cyber Monday haul on my blog. They take forever to ship it out! I hope it arrives before I head out on December 15.

As for my trip, I just booked the  hotels and finish with everything that were needed for this trip. I just need to wash my clothes, pack and get on the airplane. :D YAY*

I will also be doing a "what to bring with you when travel" blog soon. If you want to see what I pack for my trip, please stay tuned and as always, Until Then! :)

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette










Picture belongs to Urban Decay website



Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette officially launched today! I'm so excited to see a new palette from Urban Decay, especially a new Naked palette. I love the first Naked palette because it's so easy to use and easy to carry when I travel.

As you can see the Naked 2 palette has slightly more glitter colors than the first one. It also in the cooler side of brown. I just love how taupe it is! The packaging is A-AWESOME!! Instead of a carbon box, they are now improved it with a tint box? or is it a plastic box?  I'm not quite sure because of course I did not have an honor to receive the palette, because I'm not one of the famous bloggers or Youtube beauty gurus (so jelly!). That's why I have to use the image on their website. Once I get my hand on this baby, I will sure to have a full detail review.

Urban Decay launched their pre-sale for this palette today for $50 USD! You can get it now and maybe sell it on ebay once it all sold out? hehe I hope I can save enough money and get myself this beauty before Christmas!  I'm flying out on December 15 and I would love to bring this with me on my trip along with the first Naked.

<3 Until Then.

The day after Thanksgiving weekend.

I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving day, Thanksgiving dinner, Black Friday & Cyber Monday shopping and if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you had a good weekend. As for me, I sure did.  Thanksgiving to me is all about family time. This year, we all gathered at my brother's house for a small dinner consist of typical Asian BBQ food, chit-chat, and gamble.  After dinner, we all went home to rest before making some damages to our credit cards.

If you are not familiar with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Black Friday is the day that marks the Holiday shopping. It is the Friday after Thanksgiving day.  A lot of stores (retail and even small business) are on sale.  Black Friday sale mostly is for electronics, however it is still good for clothes and cosmetics. I love Cyber Monday more because Cyber Monday to me is more for women. Cyber Monday typically mean the Monday after Thanksgiving day. A lot more clothes, accessories, and cosmetics are on sale during Cyber Monday.  I usually take advantage of these two sales to shop for gifts, things I need for next year and things that I wouldn't normally buy.

I did not stay up, camp out or go crazy like other people. I just went to my local mall for some deals. I heard there were pepper sprayed, people stepped on other people, people were stealing other people's items on their carts... etc. It was horrible.

The mall was packed by the time I got there (which was 8 am).  I stopped by Express because they had 40% off everything, including sale! I went crazy and bought a lot of stuff, well more than usual.Most were gifts to my family and boyfriend though. After Express, we went to Guess store because I love Guess. I love their style, their shoes and dresses. They also had very good deal like 30% off regular priced items or 40% sale items. It was not bad but the store was packed with Asians! I felt so claustrophobic so I left early. I didn't get too much, just couple items for my Asia Trip this December. I also went to Bath and Body works, Zara, H&M. For Cyber Monday, I just did some online shopping. I order couple items from Forever 21 and Milani Cosmetics. I will show you guys what I hauled from my Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping once I receive all the items. I'm still waiting for some of the orders. 

Milani Cosmetics probably is one of the steals I caught this year. They were having 50% off everything AND FREE SHIPPING! I was awesome. I mentioned the deal in my previous blog. I normally post up pictures, deals, coupons that I believe are super save on my blog as soon as I hear about it.  Be sure to follow my blog if you don't want to miss deals like this.

Come back next time for my Black Friday and Cyber Monday haul. :)

<3 Until Then.
