Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Perfume


Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture is an oldie but a goodie. It is loved by many and for a good reason. According to Sephora description, it has notes of Wild Berries, Mandarins, Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Jasmine, Amber, Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood and Praline.  In short, it is a fruity scent with vanilla and caramel undertone. 

I am finishing up a 1oz bottle, and ready to open the second one, which I got as a birthday present. I wear Viva La Juicy when I feel liking wearing something fun and youthful, yet flirtatious. I love it is so versatile that I wear it year around unlike some of my other perfumes. If you want to save money on Viva La Juicy, TJ Maxx and Marshalls usually carry them at discounted price. 

Have you tried Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture? Do you like it? Have you tried any Juicy Couture perfume?

Hunter "Tour" Packable Rain Boots : New In


I have been super busy with school work, because I am trying to finish my thesis and take a break before I start med school. I apologize in advance if I can't post often and reply to comments. As much as I would love to be blogging all day, I have to concentrate on my school work ... sad face 

Anyways, I went fishing the first time with hubby this weekend, which was amazing. And most surprisingly who knew fishing would have been the perfect excuse that would make my husband "say yes" to a pair of hundred dollar rubber boots lol. He hates them haha. Anyways.

I bought the Hunter "Tour" Packable Rain Boots in green. The packable version is much lighter and comfortable, which is very different from the Hunter originals. I normally wear size 6, but it was size larger for me. Size 5 fit perfectly, but it would have been too tight with socks, so I went with size 6. 

As far as colors go, brighter colors like yellow and baby blue are available, but I am more comfortable with this green one and dark blue one. Lord and Taylor did not have the blue in the store, so I just went with the green. I love military green anyways, so I am pretty happy with my purchase. 

Lord and Taylor had 25% off for all their shoes, which saved me almost $40, which was a cherry on top of my fun rain boots. If you are interested in Hunter Rain Boots, I suggest you check out the packable version, because I personally find originals way too bulky, heavy and uncomfortable.

Forever 21 Floral Scarf


My first spring purchase was this beautiful scarf from Forever 21. It is called Rose Bud Scarf and available in other colors as well. The best part is that it costs only $9. The material is 100% polyester, but it feels so soft and nice. The only thing is you really are getting what you paid for. Even a gentle pull will kind of separate the threads. It is not a rip, but like weird holes between the threads? Do you know what I am taking about? Anyways, that is my current favorite and can't wait to enjoy spring and summer outfits in a few short weeks.

Mascara and Eye Liner Empties: Will I repurchase any ?

L'oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes : the mascara gives excellent volume and length without sacrificing separation. The only problem is that you need to wait for the formula to dry a bit more though the formula is already bit dry to begin with. A fresh out of a tube, it does not get hold of eyelashes, and does absolutely nothing, and the fibers get clumped up around the tube opening, which is inconvenient. So I will not be buying it again.

L'oreal Lineur Intense Eye Liner : It is one of Tiffany's favorite from youtube, and it is named to be a dupe of Lancome Art Liner. Overall packaging and felt tip design are similar to Lancome Art Liner, but application is not as easy and longevity does not even compare. I would not buy repurchasing this and am still looking for a drugstore eyeliner that lasts. 

L'oreal Telescopic Shocking Extension Mascara : It is one of the best drugstore mascaras I have ever tried so far for extension like lengthening, lash separation and resistance to water. I got so many compliments on my lashes when I use this product and highly recommend this one anyone who is looking for affordable mascara that lengthens and separates lashes. I will repurchase a tube in the future.

Lancome Art Liner : A couple years ago, everyone was using this liner. After finishing a tube myself, I know why it is loved by many. It has felt tip that makes it super easy to apply, and most importantly it stays put all day on my lid. It is a repurchase for sure, though it is bit expensive. 

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen : It has a felt tip that makes it easy to apply. The color is very opaque and dries pretty easily. When I first opened it, it barely gave any color and tugged on my eyes, but after a while finally I got the black color I expected, which is really weird. The main problem is it does not last on my hooded eyes at all. So it is no buy for me.

Dealing with Change


There are just all the sudden so much going on in life that I just want to get things done one by one as soon as possible. I am kind of stressed out. 

The first thing first, we are moving at end of this month and we are packing, cleaning, trying to sell, and storing and such. I seriously do not like moving, because I moved probably more than 10 times since I graduated from high school. Anyways, hopefully the move goes smoothly.

The next one is I am getting my driver's license... Finally. Seriously it is about time. I am about to get my PhD before getting my driver's license lol. I took my 5 hr class and now can't wait to get my road toast. I would not be surprised if I fail, but I guess I will keep taking it until I pass. 

Then, now I am looking for a car for myself, so I can transport myself back and forth between school. Looking for a good used car is pretty hard. Everything needs to be right, the car, condition, mileage and price. Hopefully I will find one soon. 

And, I am trying to finish my PhD and then planning a month long trip back home which is in Asia. Then, I am starting a new program in the fall. There are just so many transitions going on at the same time that it is nearly impossible to not stress out. 

Take a deep breath and start getting things done one by one...
