Night Market, Good Eats & New Lenses~

Hello everyone! It's been a while hasn't it? First off I'd like to say thank you to all my readers. Even though I'm not fantastic at updating my blog has been growing. Your support means a lot to me, so welcome and thank you from the bottom of my heart! This is just a catch-up post, I warn you though there's going to be a lot of food porn!
I spent a lot of time with my boyfriend recently, we went out to the night market and we also went to Steveston (a small town near Richmond) for a day.
Green tea ice cream!
The docks where we had fish and chips in
Steveston~
I always find it funny when I see warning
signs. I think about what happened/what
people did to prompt someone to make
a sign for these things lol.
Fish and chips!
Spiral potato at the night market!
Okonomiyaki! I got from these two cute
little Japanese girls; they were so sweet~
Extra food porn!
Also my new circle lenses came in the mail today. They're the EOS Ice Pink lenses. It's a good thing they showed up so soon too because I just ran out of my daily lenses. I got them from my friend Gen who runs the her own shops: Alice Dear and CosQueen. She's really nice and makes a lot of neat little accessories so you should definitely check her shops out!
We also got Koji a new harness because he keeps biting on the leash when we walk him. Too bad he's smart enough to know how to get out of it already ;___; He also chewed a hole in the back in the process of his escape. Gahhh he's just so troublesome. The worst part is that you can't get mad at him. I mean just look at how precious he is:
Anyways that's all I have to share with you for now. I'll be doing a review on the lenses soon. I'm sorry this post isn't too interesting >___<;; I'll catch you all later. Bye~!

☼ BBQ Fun & OOTD #7 ☼

Hello~ Today I went over to my friend Branden's house for a BBQ. They had a sale on barbecue grills at Superstore so him and his mom picked one up for really cheap! The weather was sort of "meh" but it cleared up to be a nice night.
I saw a lot of old friends and we spent the night catching up, playing video games and watching videos together. Some friends I hadn't seen since high school so it was quite refreshing to chat with them again!
Ahh the food was so yummy I just didn't have the time to take pictures at all (〃 ̄ω ̄〃ゞ You know me though, I cam-ho'd before I left/when I got home hehehe.
Necklace&Top: Forever21/Belt: DreamV/Shoes: JustFab
My outfit for the night~ I really wanted to wear my DreamV belt for some reason, so I decided to pair it up with my boots from JustFab and my necklace from Forever21. The rest of the outfit just kind of fell together~
For my makeup I decided to do something different, although I'm not sure if it looks any different. It was Sayoko Ozaki inspired, based off the latest tutorial she was part of on the GODMake's channel.
Boyfriend didn't like how
he looked in this picture :<
Boyfriend looking supa kawaii.
Kisses from the pup
Even my dog does selcas
lame attempt to be sexy is lame.
I hope you're sick of my face now. That was way more selcas than I thought I took ;_____; Anyways, hope you guys had a good weekend too. I'm off to bed now, bye~

OOTD #6

Hello everyone~ How are you all doing today? I was looking through my old posts and I can't believe I only have 6 labelled OOTD posts. I really suck at this label/tagging thing don't I? >o<;; Today I felt kind of like dressing up so I put together a comfy outfit for school and I thought I'd share it with you.
I couldn't decide on a filter so I picked 4 ;___;
Sweater: Taobao/Boots&Shorts: Offbrand/
Tights&Necklace: AFW
I was really sad that it rained today because the weather had been so nice. Good thing my sweater was so thick because I didn't bring a jacket and it was quite chilly. Today was also the first time I wore these tights and Koji ended up chewing a hole in them ;____; sighhhh.
Sorry this post was so short and pointless. I live a boring life outside of work and school right now haha. I'll be going to a BBQ tomorrow at Branden's place so I'll be sure to dress up and stuff for that~ Also my lenses got shipped today! I'm super excited to review them for you guys when they get here ^__^ Talk to you later!

✘ An Unforgettable Mother's Day ✘


Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Did you celebrate Mother's Day? My Mother's Day was a bit of a...scare. I'll tell you why in just a bit.
I went to church early in the morning as usual however today I couldn't stay for lunch with my friends because I had work. I left right after service and my boyfriend drove me to the mall. He would have stayed for lunch with me before work but because it was Mother's Day he had to have lunch with his mom, which meant he had to be home by 12.

He dropped me off around 11:30 and I didn't have work until 1, so I walked around and did some shopping as well has had lunch before work.

I went to Sephora first and actually ran into my best friend Jennie there! She was spending time with her mom so we only talked for a little bit before she left. I kept looking around and picked up this really nice smelling perfume by Givenchy. It's called Electric Rose and it smells just like the name haha! I can't describe scents very well but this one is like a musky floral. I don't like overly flowery scents but this one is quite nice!
I had a two gift cards which paid for most of the perfume's cost. I ended up earning 3 times the rewards points for this purchase so I picked up the 500 point perk. It was a little set by Benefit and I only decided to get it because they never really have any good 500 point prizes. Inside the set they have a sample of their best selling mascara, a red tint and a liquid highlighter.
What a cute little box!
Inside~
Next I went to Urban Planet because they were having a huge sale. I picked up two shirts, one for $5 and one for $12! They're really nice and I think they'll be great for summer~
Front~
Love the lace in the back!
This one's a really cute lilac but the
 camera doesn't pick that up very well
It's an open back just like the black one!
After that it was about time for work. So far my day's been pretty chill right? Here's when things took a turn for the worst. My boyfriend texted me on my break and told me he couldn't pick me up because he had gotten into a car accident. He was going to the Vancouver Hospital and his mom was going to the Burnaby Hospital. I had no idea what was going on and I started to panic.

Thankfully he called me right after I asked him if he was okay (I was about to walk out of work! >n<;;). It turns out he and his mom were both fine, but for some reason they got sent to different hospitals. He assured me they were both unharmed but he didn't know how long he'd be. When I got off work at 6 I rushed home to drop my things off and asked a friend to give me a ride to the hospital where he was at. He got a ride from his dad to the Burnaby Hospital and they were just waiting for his mom to get out of her tests.

The whole thing was still kind of a shock to all of us, but I'm super grateful and thankful they're both safe and unharmed. Apparently a car was turning and it hit the car next to them. That set off a chain of crashes and my boyfriend's car ended up flipped over and it skid down the street. They had to have firemen cut them out of the car. Here's a picture courtesy of Twitter:
That's his car. You can see the doors have been cut and his mom is actually getting into an ambulance in the right side of the picture.

I don't know what I would have done if something really happened to them. They're both really dear to me and I'm just happy they're safe and well. My boyfriend has a few cuts on his hand from the glass but that's all and I'm so so so relieve that he didn't have any other injuries. His mom was just a little shocked and shaken up but she's fine as well. She's a little bit sore from the collision but she will be okay.
That was the second time a car accident almost took someone from me. The first being the one my mom was in 2 years ago when a stupid drunk driver was running a red light. I'm just glad everything's okay now. A lot of friends left us heartfelt messages and supportive texts so thank you for that (if you guys ever read this) ^__^

I hope you all had a much less stressful and scary Mother's Day! As usual, thank you for reading and enjoy the rest of your week! ❤❤❤
