Celebrity Look-A-Like: 소녀시대 & NEWS

I shouldn't call this a look-a-like either, but I don't know how else I could put it. What do a female Korean idol group and a male Japanese group have in common? One thing is the backgroud in one of their MVs.

In NEWS' Akaku Moyuru Taiyou/紅く燃ゆる太陽/Burning Red Sun music video there is the polka dot background where they play around in.

In 소녀시대's Kissing You MV is the same, if not, similar polka dot background.

Metal Hearts

I have recently been looking for a new belt and at Walmart (yes, Walmart) while I was shopping for toothpaste, saran wrap, and CD cases, I found a black leather belt that looked almost like the ones (pictured above) from American Eagle Outfitters a while ago.

Coastal Scents Palettes

I just discovered Coastal Scents' 88 Makeup Palette and 78 Makeup Palettes today through random makeup videos on Youtube. So I looked further on these and I really want at least one of them now!

This is the 78 Piece Makeup Palette that's $18.95+shipping from Coastal Scents. There are 60 eye shadows, 6 blushes, and 12 highlighting and liner shades. I think I would get this palette if I had to choose between the 3 mentioned in this post because I am a beginner at makeup and this has more variety, not just eye shadow, but also blush and highlighters.

This is the 88 Piece Makeup Palette that's $18.95+shipping from Coastal Scents and judging from all the makeup review videos I have seen on Youtube, I assume that this works pretty well. This is also in Ultra Shimmer 88 Eye Shadow Palette if you like more shimmery shadows.

All Over the Place

That's where I havent been so far this summer, I've been nowhere special, yet. But this post will be all over the place as I write down whats happened since my last post. Hmm, I'm feeling quite list-y.

-I finally got a haircut. Not the shoulder length bob, but just re-layering and a trim. I kinda regret because once again, my ends are sticking up and its too thinned out at my neck. Hopeully it will grow out soon. The bangs I'm quite satisfied with it but can get into my eyes.

-I finally found and went to Daiso California. Turns out it was closer then I thought. I bought an eyelash curler that fit my eye (But the padded curling part is crooked. Oh well that's what I get for $1.50), two packs of stickers to stickerfy my phone, and a compact mirror. Not that much, I hope I can go back soon.

-I got Boys Over Flowers on DVD! was $6 at Soyodo! Most likely pirated. It was kid of a waste though, since I was already on episode 23 when I got it, but the episodes were broken on so I decided to get it.

-My dance recital was on Saturday. I had 2 shows. 2 dances in the first show (1 tap and 1 jazz) and 3 dances in the second show (2 tap and 1 jazz). My parents only went to the first show and taped my dances...the ones I messed up in. And the show my parents didn't watch and film I did great on! I didn't mess up on anything! Now I have 2 costumes I have no idea what to do with. I can use the pants from my tap dance costume as pajamas, my friend suggested. And as for the big pink skirt for my '80s/jazz dance, Halloween costumes anyone?

-I helped out at my church's VBS. This actually happened before my last post but I don't know why I neer mentioned it. But I did, and I never regret helping out every year and the week before to help decorate. The kids are all so cute!

-I saw Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I mean who didn't? And I realized I forgot a lot from the book. But so did the movie. I still liked it though. I went shopping after, the movie theater just being a few feet from the mall and I bought a pair of gold sandals.

-I actually read the books that were mandatory for summer reading. I'd never thought I could bring myself to read books that weren't about teenage romance or vampires over the summer. Just kidding. but these books seemed kind of, just kind of boring. So far, I finished The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I am half way through The Distand Land of My Father by Bo Caldwell and a few chapters into The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seierstad.

-It's the top 8 of So You Think You Can Dance. I can't wait to see this weeks dances and Ellen Degeneres judging as it is the 100th episode of SYTYCD! I also want to go see the tour. It just happens to stop at the sity where I live! I hope I can go, I still haven't asked my parents about it though.

-t1enacious! Enough said.

So that much happened so far. Sorry for no photos! I usually love to post photos but I thought it would ruin the list layout I used this time. Also sorry for typos!

Shoulder Length Bob

So I have pondering whether I should get a haircut for summer because my hair has gotten pretty long.

And at first I wanted to keep the style I had, layers and sideswept bangs, but just to fix my bangs and get a trim. I tried to find pictures of celebrities with my hairstyles but no luck, you'll just have to use your imagination. The length of my hair is to about my armpit, the bangs are to the left and my hairline is about to the middle of my right eye. The layers start at my chin/jaw area and are seperated into about 3 or 4 layers.

But then I thought of getting a shoulder length bob, thanks to pictures from the internet of Nicole Richie and her gorgeous haircut. I realy like her haircut, but I don't know whether it would look good on me, and how it would grow out. It would just grow out to be a straight-across kind of style, which I really don't want after the bob.

So what do you think, should I go with the haircut or just get the same-old, fix my bangs and layer my hair again. I really need your help on this, I can't decide!
