distractions distractions.

I am anticipating April 18th like nobody's business! That's the day of my last final!!! And 4 days following that will be my 2 year anni. And then it's all gonna go uphill cus summer will be fast approaching! I'm too excited..i can barely contain my excitement. It's bad because I can barely concentrate, and I make it seem okay to skip classes now. Waaah so bad :( I was studying with my computer off and I was doing fine. But my hands could not resist lifting my laptop open and turning it on. Why I did that, I don't know. But now I'm hella distracted. *sniff.

Oh, do you like my new banner? Heheh..I wanna do another photoshoot with the besties soon!
& can't wait til this weekend for Clara and Janet's birthday dinner @ the Brewery! I've missed so many birthday dinners before due to work.

Oh by the way, I need to rant about my fake ass redhead assistant manager. She totally just stole my sale last time I worked. I was helping a guy find a wallet for his gf and I gave him a few really good suggestions and he seemed pretty firm on this black gathered leather wallet which costed $248. I gave him some time to think about it and walked away to help other people. Next thing you know, I turned around and my bitch ass manager was helping him and closed the sale with her own name! bitch bitch bitch. She didnt even ask him 'Was anyone helping you?' CUS I CLEARLY WAS. ugh i hate her. She makes work miserable. I was too chicken shit to stand up for myself and tell her it was my sale. waah. I'm glad I'm only working once a week cus I'm SO OVER RETAIL.

happy spring!

Welcome spring, welcome!! I've waited so long for this season to finally come. I'm so ready to ditch my jackets and scarves, for reals.

I had an on call shift at work today, and luckily they didn't need me! Thank gosh, cus I was only taking someone's shift and I would've been a bitter employee if I had to go in. I like my sunday's anywhere but at work sank you very much! So the bf came over after his car meet and we went to Lucy's Eastside Dinner for a late lunch! I heard about that place in a few blogs and I couldn't wait to try it. The inside is covered with turquoise painted walls, I felt like I was inside a Tiffany & Co box. Hahah it was that kinda turquoise. So 70s in there! The food was amazing too.
I got a regular burger, it came with fries and a milkshake of the day. I got Oreo because it's my all time faaaav!! Omgosh IT WAS SO BOMB :) & justin got a BBQ Chicken burger. hehe he loved it there too! I'm so glad. It is also open 24hrs, I'm definitely gonna go for some late night burgers one day!

Since it was such a nice spring day in Vancouver, we decided to drive downtown. I bought myself some new suede maroon pumps from Roberto Vianni. Most of my heels are from that brand. haha it was on sale too! Could not stop myself. It was a very relaxed Sunday well spent. :)
it looks red but it's burgundy in person :)

I know that she is in a better place now. She was in line and it was her turn to go, and it was a way to ending the pain and suffer. Maybe she's united with my grandparents and they're having a good time together right now..catching up and watching over us.

It was my first time seeing someone pass..and it was definitely heartbreaking and difficult. I will never ever forget the scene of endless tears and unwillingness to let her go. It was especially hard to see her husband sit there and scowl at his own family for letting this happen to his wife. As though someone had caused her to go down the path of death. I know it is his way of coping and we must all understand that he is the most affected one. They shared more than 70years of memories together..and suddenly, she's gone, forever. This is an old loving couple who held hands as they walked. She peeled fruits for him and fed him all three meals and cared for him and herself without a complain. Who can you blame for his anger and disbelief? I hope he sees the truth some day and accepts it.

I learned that we must cherish everyone around us. We can say that so many times, but never actually put actions to it. It's hard to see someone go, it's even harder to feel the sense of regretful for not giving them your all when they were alive.

Rest In Peace. <3

Yesterday, after I got off work, I checked the voicemail that my dad left me, which said 'Kaylie, where are you? are you working? Call me asap, there's an emergency." And right then, I already knew what was up. So i called him back and he told me to rush to the hospital because my grandma was not doing so well. And so i did.

I met him and my cousin and uncle at Mcdonalds as they were having some food. I was really scared because all of their eyes were so puffy and red. When we got to the hospital, I was greeted by all my relatives in the room where my grandma stayed in. I was so heartbroken and my eyes got so watery because I've never been in a situation like this. She looked so thin and vulnerable. She was sleeping and her mouth was opened the whole time..grasping heavily for air. My grandpa was sitting on a wheelchair next to her (he fell couple days ago and was also hospitalized.) Everyone knew she was on her way..but nobody wanted to leave her side. My family stayed there until midnight, because my mother was getting really tired (geez -.-) And at 2something, my dad, sister and I went back to the hospital. I literally slept on the chairs on the seating area where patients watch TV and socialize. But it was midnight, so it was just me and my cousins laying there. We got home at 5..and I was so exhausted.

This isn't my immediate grandma. She isn't my mom nor my dad's mom. She's my cousin's grandmother..which is kind of distant in the family tree if you picture it. But I've lived with her longer than I've lived with my own grandparents (who aren't with me anymore. <3)>

It's heartbreaking to see her husband sit and sob next to her, holding her hand and measuring her pulse with his fingers..It's so beautiful at the same time. I could see her trying to open her eyes, as though she is trying to communicate with us but she physically cannot.

So, it's been almost 24hrs since her condition has worsened. I'm told she is still the same..a little bit worse because of her blood pressure. But she is trying hard to fight it and be strong, and it shows. Everything's been peaceful, very emotional nonetheless.

Maybe a miracle will happen?

french nails with some sparkles*

Just thought I'd blog a bit before I sleep. I just did my nails and I wanted to share how it turned out! I played around with the nail design package that I recently purchased from Daiso.
I only did one hand with the sparkles because I was getting lazy haha.
NYX eyeshadow in Sparkle Cedar. Picked it up today from Save-On! I love my neutral taupe-y colours :) Can't wait to try it out tmr!

MAC Transparent Finishing Powder. Finally picked up a loose powder to set my liquid foundation with. Tried it today, and I like it so far!

Hope you all had a great weekend <3

It's been a couple days since I last blogged. So on Thursday, it was the most relaxing day I had since a long longgg time. I really needed it! Justin and i finally went to Delta for Krispy Kremes!! We thought that it was gonna be a long ride, well he did. But we got there in like 30mins! We got 2 dozens :) Finished my last donut today..sooo orgasmic. It's definitely not your typical tim horton's donut! It was Justin's mom's birthday that day too, so we to Save-On to pick her up her favorite Tuxedo cake. It's so delish! It's like layers of bread, chocolate and creme. & then I went to Tropika for dinner with Justin's family. Food was amazeballs, I had a great time with my second family < 3.
I picked up a few things from London Drugs:
Revlon Nail Enamel in
Peach Nectar:

I think this is gonna be my new go-to colour! I love the colour pay off. This picture doesn't do the nail polish justice, it's much nicer in person. I like how it has a hint of peach and it's matte, it has no shimmer. I hate shimmer nail polish sometimes haha. I applied 3 coats to get that colour in the picture. And the best part? It was on sale for $2.99!
Physician's Formula Happy Booster Blush in Rose:

I heard about this blush from a youtube beauty guru and I had to get it the moment I saw it. I think the packaging and the look of the product captured my attention most. I'm a huge sucker for pretty packaging. So apparently the ingredient contains something that mimics Endorphins, and Endorphins are supposed to make you happy, hence the name Happy Booster. I refuse to believe a blush can make you happy..but I'm still very impressed! Let me just say that it is SUPER pigmented, and super PINK. I apply a very small amount, and blend blend blend away. It gives off a really healthy glow. The blush comes with a small brush and mirror as well, but I won't be using the brush for sure. It smells like rose extracts. Price: $15somthing. My first Physician's Formula product, and I will definitely be repurchasing from their line. It's like high-end drug store. Over all I'm really impressed and you should all consider it if you're looking for a good quality, affordable blush for spring and summer. The only thing is, why are my hearts upside down??

happiest girl in the world.

Omgosh, freedom never smelt so good. I finished my last midterm today, it was Bio and it wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. This semester, I'm starting to really feel like hard work does pays off. I felt like i tried twice as hard this time around, than I have ever did. And I'm enjoying the results I see. Hopefully I'm not too far from my goal and I'll be able to surprise my father soon! It's going to be a special moment :')

So I decided to treat myself after weeks of studying. But I didn't buy much! I went to Richmond with bf and his bf. lol. ew. hahahah. I got a few things for nails from Daiso. The nail polish i got was a light baby pink. I'm not too fond of the colour pay off and quality. What can you expect from a $2 nail polish though right? Haha. And then we went over to Richmond Centre. I really like the new XXI there, it's a lot smaller though. I just found a cute turquoise and gold ring. hella cuuute! and after dinner, the family and i made a trip to the hospital to visit my cousin's grandma; she fell a few days ago :(. Aaaand then we went to superstore and just picked up random shit. bahaha.. I got a Freeman Cucumber PeelOff mask. it smells so fresh, ima give it a try tonight and let you know how it is!
