Gyaru Coloring Game Review

 I like to colour. I'm kinda dorky like that. Having a child helps me do this without looking too childish. What else helps? Online colouring games! I found this one from Kawaii Games. I like it for its simplicity. There is just one major negative point: the music. Seriously. I had to mute my laptop. There's only so much pseudo-Nintendo music I can take. Sure you can mute it, but why not just put something pleasant on instead? This song... It's horrid. Luckily the colouring is not.

Find the game here:

The Case of the $5 Primer

So I've been sick for what feels like ages. Last Monday, I finally went to the doctor because I got conjunctivitis from my sinus infection spreading to my eye. After spending another $60 on prescriptions and nose tissue, I stopped by the make-up aisle. There I came across a display or the Essence of Beauty "Portables" line. I believe EOB is CVS's house brand of make-up and beauty supplies. Anyway, I needed a new face primer so I bought this for $5. It's actually pretty good. It went on like liquid silk. The finish was smooth. When I put on my foundation (MAC StudioFix powder compact) I was thrilled. I used a brush to apply as usual and the coverage was better than I expected. I also ended up using less. So yeah. I'm pleased with this product. Also, the Essence of Beauty line has never let me down.

Big Foot Scores!

I think I've made it pretty clear in the past that I have huge feet. I won't drive you all crazy by dwelling on that. Let's just smile about the fact that my one evil foot stopped being swollen and now I can wear my awesome new wedges. I never thought I'd find shoes of this strappy style in my size.  I even did a happy dance when I ordered them [from Lane Bryant]. It was rad. Such a shame you couldn't see. Someday I'll record it for all the world to see.

I need Adderall. Staying on topic is hard work.

Anyway, these shoes are comfy, but not as comfy as they appeared to be. They are cushy, but mostly on the outer ring, not the middle. I find that odd, but they feel fine. I can wear them for a good while. Here's a side view:

New Bags are LOVE

I got a nifty new purse from Lane Bryant and this is what it looks like from the front. It's deceptively roomy inside. This thing holds a LOT of action. I've used it as a:

  • purse
  • gym bag
  • diaper bag
  • shopping bag

I'll probably wear it out if I keep all that up, but I like versatility. I think I won't push it by using it for shopping anymore. The bag is sturdy and straps will support the weight of being over-stuffed. I just don't wanna risk it.

The one thing I hated but am okay with now is the fact that the bag is brown. It's a really dark brown that's almost black. I'm the type of purse-buyer who wants clearly defined colors. If it's brown, make it blatantly brown. Don't make me have to hold it up to the light or next to something black.

On the plus side, it's not overly flashy and looks great with most styles of clothing. Now I want one in black and red. Too bad those models don't exist!

More Couponing

This doesn't qualify as extreme couponing but it sure is nice! I took a break from work a week or so ago and went to CVS. I spoke with the pharmacist and she recommended Advil Cold & Sinus. She also said the generic (CVS brand) works the same. 
Onto the savings:

I signed up for the beauty club via internet and got a $4 coupon. I also had that 3-day 30% off coupon from yesterday. I saved $15 and ended up spending just under $30 for:
  • 3 double-sized boxed of tissue
  • Cold medicine
  • Vitamins for SOB
  • Inspirational/Encouragement card for my mom
  • John Frieda Root Awakening Shampoo (on sale for $2 off)
  • John Frieda Root Awakening Conditioner (on sale for $2 off)
Those last two were must buy purchases. I'd previously bought the $0.99 travel-sized versions and they worked WONDERS on my hair. I'm hooked. More on that later, though. Can't waste a perfectly good hair post!
