Friday&Saturday catch-up!

Hello world!

Some African Red Bush Tazo tea from yesterday afternoon ♥

It's 5:30pm already and today has been quite busy. I feel the need to go get myself one of those delicious teas to re-energize myself for the rest of the day.

Today is Saturday (and Sunday comes after... wards) and I apologize for not posting yesterday, I got caught up in a LOT of homework. Same with today, but I realized that I needed a break so here I am!

Friday recap in less than 3:
Went to class and promised myself the night before that I would be more productive and outgoing, so I smiled at the guy who always sits beside me and we had a few chuckles at what the prof said. Didn't go teach because I cancelled it last week for the massive amount of homework I had (blah), and really did spend the rest of the night doing homework till 1 in the morning. Got my piano practicing done in the afternoon though, HORRAY!

recap in less than 3:
Shopping in the morning. Homework in the afternoon. MORE homework to come at night, and I didn't even get to practice piano yet :(.

Highlight of the day
Again, SHOPPING! (I'm telling ya, it's my favorite sport!)

What I got:
♥ Lush tin
♥ Night cream / serums

a) The Lush tin was for my message bar that I got in Ottawa a month ago. I originally kept the bar in the bag that it came in, but my dorm room is so dusty that when I took out the bar, it had a layer of dust on it. So I decided that it was time for a tin.

I like shiny, non-dusty things.

PS. The bar itself is phenomenal! It's moisturizing and smells so organic ☺ Definitely worth giving a try! (Just be sure to buy a Lush tin too!)

b) The Body Shop is currently having a promotion, buy any three items in the store for $30! (Excluding gift sets and makeup) YES this means the body butters, body washes, face products, EVERYTHING! And so, I got myself a new night cream and two face serums, one for me and one for my mommy :)

I'll tell you how it goes once I give them a try. My previous experience with the face products from The Body Shop has been good, so hopefully these would be good too.

Well, you have all just been caught up on my weekend so far. How has your week been? What are some of your weekend plans? I know that mine is just going to consist of more homework. WHY school? WHY must you decide to have everything due on the same week? Seriously the amount of homework atm is ridiculous.

Hope that you're having a fantastic, stress-free, homework-free weekend! (unlike yours truly)

{Tea-time Thursday} + Retail Therapy!

Hi Everyone! :)

Welcome to Catch Up! ; a place where I catch myself up on what's going on in life because as you know, life gets hectic sometimes :P

recap in less than 3:
Today was busy; 8:30 am classes are never fun, but I made it! Aside from boring class, I went to the public school in which I'm hoping to complete my practicum in (fingers crossed!) and then off to work. Then some shopping, visited the next year (actually MAY) house, and now home for the night to complete some work :)

Today I tried some Forbidden Fruit tea from David'sTea. It was delicious! There were hints of fig, honeydew and watermelon; there were also carrots and safflower pedals, but those were hard to taste. Definitely a good choice for anyone who likes a sweet fruity tea!

highlight of the day:
SHOPPING of course!

What I got:
♥ Tights
♥ Knock-Knock note pads
♥ The Walking Dead comics

a) Love the tights, they were on sale at Urban Outfitters for $5 - originally $16! (If you did not know, I only buy clothes on sale, I'm too much of a cheap-o to pay full price for anything... also too poor.)

See the bow? It's just the cutest thing. :)

b) The Knock-Knock note pads were from Urban Outfitters too, each were $2.99 (AGAIN, on sale!). The blue one says "Check Yourself" and the brown one says "Go to Hell". I can imagine these to be useful during the most inappropriate times.

"Check yo' self before you wreck yo' self, fool"

The "you already look it" option is like me every morning, it's so great.

c) And of course, the Walking Dead comics (LOVE!) are my favorite purchases today :P. I was hooked on these all last weekend, took me 3 days to finish all 83 issues that they've released and so I NEEDED to get my own copies!

Got the most recent two issues (it was all they had at the comic book store, you should have seen the strange look the guy at the cash register gave me when I walked in. The place also smelled like a nerdy-boy. You know what I'm talking about.)

So yeah, that was my day. Seemed to be pretty good. How was your day? Did you try out a new flavor of tea like I did? Or stick to a classic? (Although I highly doubt anyone to read this post as it is my first one, please comment if you are reading!)

Have a beauteaful Thursday! :)
