Spa Marine Special treatment

Good evening, my pretty sunlit swallows!

It's my birthday in a week and my mother treated me to a spa special treatment at my favourite Spa! It was simply heavenly, for the lack of other words.

Here are the specials for this month:
I went for the Spa Make-Over. Instead of an express facial, she gave me another RegimA peel & heal treatment (20%) with fruit acids (Lactic, Malic and Citrus acids) to thank me for my work that one time. Such a wonderful lady! ^ u ^

Sorry for the short post, but I'm overwhelmed by lethargy. Sweet dreams, my little angels!

Good morning, my puffy marshmallows!

I know I haven't posted in a while and with the giveaway post, I thought I'd throw in some updates as well.

ipetitpanda giveaway:
My Valentine's Day giveaway has not yet been completed. I have a winner in mind - the person with the most valid entries - but haven't bought the things yet. I'll get around to that when I get my Birthday money. Sorry for any inconveniences caused!
Perhaps I should just host a Birthday giveaway instead. Few people joined the V-Day giveaway, so I doubt that will make anyone extremely furious. Perhaps I'll have one of the Sasatinnie brushes up for grabs this time. Would that be ok?  o u o

Work at Spa Marine:
On Tuesday I went to my first job EVER! I had to play receptionist from 8am to 5pm (at Spa Marine). I was so nervous about answering the phone! You may think, but being a receptionist is an easy small job. It's not! A receptionist is more than a person that records bookings - you have to be a good host. You have to be sparkling kind all the time and not laugh when a lady brings her dog with her (yes, that really happened)! You have to be professional and sincere, yet lighthearted and charming. They gave me some paperwork at first, but later I had no choice but to answer that dreaded phone. After my third call, I relaxed and saw it as a game of charm. Then it became super fun! ^ u ^
I'll be going back there during the Winter vacation and Saturdays when I can.

Peel and Heal:
I went for a RegimA peel and heal at Spa Marine and my skin texture improved A LOT! MY scars are also starting to fade quite rapidly. In other workds, I'm more perky than usual! Yay! hihihi
They also have specials and one of these is a Make-Over package - a full body scrub with Environ's Dermalac (fruit acids, aka: full body peel), Vitamins ACE oil massage, a quick fix Environ Facial and an express pedicure (cut and file and reflexology with a color varnish of your choice OR filing off dead skin on your heels). My mommy is going to book me a session like that for my Birthday! *can't wait*!!

Other specials include Teeth Whitening and Massages. Please don't be afraid to ask questions, but leave your email so I can contact you with the answers!

I have been promoted to Vice Captain in my favorite guild! The captain, also my Gaia mother, was away visiting her mom for Easter weekend. When she's away, the guild usually falls dead quiet, but I managed to get a few conversations and schemes going. So now I'm her lieutenant - one of my Gaia dreams! ^ w ^
Only problem now is that I've noticed just how dead the members really are. And my avatar still looks like crap... = . =

Oh, oops. This probably shouldn't have been the last update. Oh well~ Uni has been great so far. I see it as a game too tahahaha!
We had one week recess now and I still have some work to do. But all in all, it's been good sleeping late.

Time to hit the books now. Please forgive me for neglecting this blog! I'll make it up to you guise when I have time!!

Much love~

Interview with Beauty Blogger Orenjji ✿

My latest bloggie friend, Orenjji, also agreed to fill out the interview survey. She recently started a new blog on blogspot which you can find in my sidebar. Have fun reading her answers!

1. What inspired you to become a beauty blogger?
It was when I was a junior high school student that I become active in participating in beauty forums and other related beauty pages. I was like a crazy fan back then searching on how to have milky skin like those Korean idols .
Then one day there was this 'girl' who posted on a forum and said " I really like Dara's skin soooo much! and I wish i was born with that kind of beauty but I'm ugly, I can't be like her I can't even afford to buy cosmetics BLAH LAH BLAH". I dont know if I should hate or feel sorry for what she said. From that day, I gathered all the informations I found in the internet starting from beauty tips, home made beauty recipes,DIY cosmetics and have them compiled in Microsoft Word. The next day, I told her to read the attached file that ive sent in her email. Unexpectedly after 2 weeks, I received an email from someone who i dont know. I read the whole message and was shocked to know that it was from the girl whom ive sent the file to. She told me that she's really thankful that I shared those informations to her and she even shared it to her classmates because everyone was like asking how did she manage to have a beautiful skin in just a week . I was so happy when i read her heart warming confession it was like earned someone's respect but what I didnt expect from her that she's planning to enroll to a beauty school :))))). Since I got inspired helping her to solve her dilemmas I created a beauty blog where ANYONE can look at my new found beauty experiments! ( I hope they will share their experiences--- it would mean a lot to me ^_^)
2. What does your blog do for you? Is there something you hope to achieve as a blogger?
This blog I made is like an online scrapbook or an e-diary for me where I can disclose all my everyday thoughts, It's not like that everyday i can share my thoughts to someone therefore i made this to share my knowldge and post anything random ;pp and when I get old I might visit this blog and will find myself reading it weeeeeeeeeeee (Isnt cute? :3).  Maybe the biggest achievement as a blogger is to receive positive feedback from your readers. It says that they are acknowledging your potential.
3. When did you start blogging?
I started blogging almost 2 years ago but let me tell you im still a noob (boooh!)

4. What would you recommend doing when starting a blog? And how does one gain traffic? Are there any other tips you could share?
When starting a blog, get a piece of paper first be a project manager for the mean time and bring out your IMAGINATION. Toss out any ideas you have there in your mind what do you want to be your blog like? What would be my first topic? How would you write your first post?Take note, planning is the key to success and failing to prepare is preparing to fail. As to how you can gain traffic, It all depends on your posts,how often you post and if they are worth reading for. Next, use the power of social networking sites Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and etc. they are made to interact with other people so why not share it to your board and someone might read your post and bcme your avid fan! Lastly, this advice sounds like 'PROMOTING' yes you have to promote your blog by plugging yur post EVERYWHERE haha but atleast be reasonable put your posts to appropriate pages only.

5. What revolutionary product or skincare trick/tip helped you magically transform your skin?
magically transform your skin?
Ah~! Only 1 comes into my mind and that is........... BB Cream!
This is the only thing I can't go outside without applying this on my face (as long as they have sunscreens~!)

6.)What are your HG skincare products and why?
BB Cream ( I recommend Etude House, Skinfood, Skin 79 BB Creams~!) BB creams say everything why Koreans almost have "perfect skin"
Sunblock~! because they are skin savers from sun's harmful rays. Always wear sunblock/sunscreens even inside the house!

7. What are your favourite/HG makeup products and how do they help express your style/feelings?
BB creams again~! I always opt for a natural look i dont want to cake my face with powders which will just take too muc time for me to remove them so I must admit im really the lazy type person ;D
For special occassions, i sometimes do tightlining using eyeliners, glitter eyeliner on the inner lower lash line (put primer first~! glitters are small pieces of metals and can irritate your eyeballs) and lastly applying tint on my lips and do the ulzzang style!
8. What should every beauty blogger/beauty junkie know?
A beauty blogger should know how to enjoy sharing their knowledge & experiences to others (and that is always your job- share it!). There are no guidelines or limits as long as you are serious with th field that you are taking.
9. Lastly, but not least, what does beauty mean for you? What does it include, in your opinion, and how can it be defined?
Beauty is not always the physical appearance because true beauty comes from within learning to love who you are and what you are radiates the true beauty in you. :D
A very special, candy-coated thank you to all the bloggers I had the honor to interview! Thanks for your help and awesomeness! I hope there will be more interviews and combined posts in the future~

Interview with Beauty Blogger Xiao Vee ✿

Introducing one of my best friends, the first beauty blogger I met, and my inspiration~ Shelvi from Xiao Vee's World! Here's what she has to say about beauty blogging and beauty in general~ 
(Yes, it's the same interview template - I thought it would be interesting to hear different answers to the same questions ^ u ^ ) 
1. What inspired you to become a beauty blogger?
At first, I was inspired by a famous youtube guru, Bubzbeauty. She inspired me a lot and I'm longing to share something to others. I chosen to blog, since I have no time to make proper videos and enough confidence to talk in front of camera. Then, I was inspired by many beauty bloggers and finally I tried my best to blog.

2. What does your blog do for you? Is there something you hope to achieve as a blogger?
My blog is my little diary :D I could share anything on my blog! I really want to be a productive blogger, share something unusual yet gives benefit to my readers.

3. When did you start blogging?
February, 2012

4. What would you recommend doing when starting a blog? And how does one gain traffic? Are there any other tips you could share?
Join a community, to increase traffic and build friendship with fellow bloggers and readers :)
Share as many as you can, on your blog. Improving the content, writing style and photography skill are necessary.

5. What revolutionary product or skincare trick/tip helped you magically transform your skin?
I found that there's no product better than mineral water. I drank mineral water a lot lately and surprisingly (for the first time) I didn't get any simple pimple during my period! Sleep enough, eat well and cleanse your face properly :D

6. What are your HG skincare products and why?
Haven't found it yet.

7. What are your favourite/HG makeup products and how do they help express your style/feelings?
Umm I love Etude House makeup! Love their packaging and they got nice quality as well.

8. What should every beauty blogger/beauty junkie know?
Spend your money wisely ^^ Try to differentiate which is your needs and your wants. Make a priority-list.

9. Lastly, but not least, what does beauty mean for you? What does it include, in your opinion, and how can it be defined?
Beauty has no meaning when someone is only wearing "mask" to cover their hateful hearts :)
True beauty is only could be showed when someone has inner beauty
