Clarisonic Mia2

February 17, 2013 4 comments

This is the pink Clarisonic Mia2 that my sister got for me for Christmas. Apparently, after looking it over online, the Mia2 is better than the Mia version ofthe Clarisonic. It has more options for use and is like a revised version of the Mia.

Also, if you register your product online at, then the Mia2 comes with a 2 year warranty versus the 1 year warranty on the Mia. You register your product online with the serial number that’s on the bottom of your actual Clarisonic handle. So keep your receipts people! I’m not sure if you need it (like maybe it was a gift to you), but I’d keep it just in case if you have one.

Check out the website though, there’s lots of useful info on there.

OH! Another thing that the sales girl said was that it’s made to be used with your  regular cleanser AS LONG AS IT HAS NO MICRO BEADS… So none of those little beads in the cleanser! The Mia2 comes with a little tube of their sample cleanser… But I’m going to use my regular cleanser since I know it’s good and works with my skin. 🙂

I’m excited to try mine, but I have to charge it for 24 hours before the first use. So now I’m just waiting. :p


My New Samsung Galaxy Note II

February 13, 2013 Leave a comment

Today, I received my Samsung galaxy Note II in the mail today! It felt like forever, but I only waited a few days for it. I wanted mine in white, but they only carried gray in store, so I had to get mine shipped in.

So far, I LOVE the phone, but I’ll let you all know what I think for sure after I’ve been using it for a while.

Valentine’s Day Wish List

February 9, 2013 Leave a comment

Mint Life Blog reports that:

“According to the National Retail Federation, the average person will spend $130.97 on Valentine’s Day gifts this year, with men spending significantly more than women, and total holiday spending expected to reach $18.6 billion.”

Now, I know that the notion of Valentine’s Day is about expressing your love for one another, and that it’s not about how much you spend or the gifts you receive OVER the importance of the solid fact that one individual is loved by another and vice versa.

HOWEVER, since V-Day is coming up and maybe you were going to get your special someone something anyway but wondering what to get, I figured I’d post a Valentine’s Day Wish List of various items and ideas for you! 🙂

Some of the items on this list may seem extravagent, or this list may seem very long, but it’s just a “Wish List”, not a “List-Of-Everything-I-Must-Get-On-Valentine’s-Day”. And I’m pretty sure that the BF doesn’t read my blog, so it’s okay to have a wish list like this. Hahaha :p

ALSO, I can’t stress enough how important the thought is. It’s always the thought that counts. The more thought you put into the gift, the more cherished the gift is. It doesn’t matter how much it costs, or if you bought it or made it…

Okay, so here goes:

Does your lover like to collect anything? Coins? Snow globes? Pins? Hats? Get her/him something to add to their collection.

For me, I’ve started a collection of Hello Kitty dolls that I leave in my car. Everytime I stumble across a new one, I end up buying, winning, or some how [legally] obtaining them. The BF has bought me several of the dolls in my collection and I know I’d love to receive another! This is the Tokidoki for Hello Kitty doll that I absolutely LOVE from Sanrio.


Another idea if you’re sort of sweetly old-fashioned, madly in love with your sweetheart and want to show your committment to them, or if your girl is just a jewelry type of person, a promise ring is something that a lot of women like to receive. And what better a time to give them such a token then on V-Day! Zales has a large assortment of promise rings that could fit a wide array of budgets. Of course you want to pick one that fits your budget as well as your gal, but personally, this one is my FAVORITE so far after reading the customer reviews, ratings, and after looking at the reviewers’ personal pictures of the ring on the site:

Or, is your girl a techie at heart? Is there a specific gadget she’s had her eye on for a while? Something she really wants but would never buy for herself? Does she need a specific gadget? Maybe a digital camera to capture memories for that upcoming trip? Maybe her phone is falling apart or works only every other call? Maybe she needs a laptop to work on the go? Or an iPod to go to the gym with? Whatever it may be, just make sure you put some thought into it.

For me, I’d have two gadgets in mind that fall into the category of “I’d-love-to-have-one-but-I’d-never-buy-it-for-myself“. One is a 13-inch Apple Macbook Pro laptop with retina display, and the other is a Samsung Galaxy Note II cell phone.

Another timeless gift is a gift of flowers. If she likes them, pick out your girl’s favorite colored flower, or her favorite flower in general. If you’re on a budget, Costco, or even Safeway has some nice arrangments or bunches of flowers.

Personally, I love lilies and roses. Or just a giant bushel of roses. I’m talking like 3 dozen roses. And I love pink. And red. Or orange is nice. LOL Well, I guess I just really like flowers, and the bigger the arrangement the better. But boy, can it get costly. I used to work at a florist and BOY! Some arrangments get really expensive!


So, maybe she’s not a flowers person? But is she a food person? What’s her favorite type of food? Her favorite restaurant? Her favorite eating spot? If you’re good at cooking, maybe you can cook her something? If you’re not so good at cooking, cook her something anyway–She’ll probably be flattered that you spent the time doing that.

If you’re not so handy, order something. If she likes to eat clean, order her a fruit arrangment! Those are really popular now. They’re pretty AND healthy! Personally, I’d LOVE to receive one of these. They’re DELICIOUS! Edible Arrangments even delivers!


Is your lady the type that likes to do her nails or get her nails done? You could pick out a few nail polishes for her or get her a certificate to her favorite nail salon for a manicure/pedicure combo!

Some really good quality brands for polishes are OPI or China Glaze. These run about $8.00-$9.00 a piece. If you’re looking for something a little cheaper but still good quality, I love Revlon and Essie. They’ll run you $5.00-$6.00 each. Nicole (by OPI) is pretty good too and can be found at places like Target for about $7.00. There are also other brands that I’ve heard are good too like Butter London. That might be something new to her and might be fun to try out.


If you’re on a smaller budget, Mint Life Blog also has a V-Day idea post that has gifts ranging in price from $1.95 – $15.00! And these are all cute ideas too!

OR, if you’re the creative type, MAKE HER SOMETHING! This is always really impressive because you actually took the time out to pinpoint something she’d like, get the supplies, make the gift, and present it to her. There are a lot of sites on how to make Do-It-Yourself gifts.

If you’re not the crafty type, then maybe you can pick out something that has been handmade by someone else! A website called Etsy is a site specifically for sellers who make handmade goods. You can find ALL KINDS OF HANDMADE GIFTS on there! There’s GOT to be SOMETHING that your significant other would like on there. There’s handmade jewelry, handmade clothing, handmade dolls, handmade baby items, handmade EVERYTHING! They even have lists of compiled items specifically for V-Day that you can look at!


For now, this is all I have time for, but I’ll post more as I think of things. Hope this helps so far!

My New Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 In WHITE!

August 29, 2012 Leave a comment

Today, my new tablet came in! I ordered the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (this is a 7-inch tablet).

This is the “student edition” from Amazon (only the student edition comes in WHITE so far and it also came bundled with a keyboard dock AND a USB connector so you can connect your flash drive or anything else via USB port!).

You can find the student edition tablet here on Amazon: SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB 2 IN WHITE STUDENT EDITION

I bought it from here for $250 + free shipping! Good deal with the keyboard AND for it being white!

Some of the good specs:

  • It’s 7-inches
  • MicroSD Card slot
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • DUAL CAMERAS (one on the front. and one on the back-3MP)
  • TouchWiz
  • 0.76 lbs
  • 1024 x 600 screen resolution
  • wifi enabled

I’ll post a review on this later, but so far I REALLY like it. 7-inches seems to be a perfect size after handling a 10.1 inch tablet. I also love the fact that it’s white and that it matches all my other electronics. The tablet is android-based so it syncs up perfectly to everything on my phone. It fits in my hands comfortably and it’s not heavy. Check it out if you have the time!

Missing My Samsung Galaxy SII

June 18, 2012 Leave a comment

As you may or may not know, I got rid of my Galaxy SII a few weeks ago in anticipation of the Galaxy SIII that is coming out on the 21st of this month.

The release is a few days away, however, I don’t think I will be able to actually get one for a few weeks AFTER anyways! I’m so bummed out and I’m DYING without my super nice Android phone with the big nice screen and camera.

I mean, I’m getting by on my Windows phone, however, it just… It just isn’t the same! 😦

I miss you, baby. T.T

My T-Mobile Bill, Hahaha

May 14, 2012 Leave a comment

This is my T-Mobile bill this month.


Believe it or not, thanks to some crafty maneuvering and deal watching, the whole bill has been paid for COMPLETELY, at no cost to me, as well as us getting two white Samsung Galaxy SIIs for free. 😀 (And no, I don’t mean that T-Mobile paid for it or anything… I just managed to go a roundabout way to get white SIIs for free as well as made some profit money to pay off the bill). 🙂

But isn’t just crazy to look at? Geez.
