Happy New Years Eve!!

Hey girls, its new years eve~ YAY~! A whole new year is here. Time for new things and new opportunities~^^
Anyways~ back to my blog, so I've been in New York and its been really nice here.  Since it is new years and usually during this celebration, food is involved, I thought I would share with you what korean people eat during the Lunar New Year. Traditionally during the New Years, Rice cake soup or in korean, Ddeok Gook(떡국), is eaten because it is believed to bring good fortune to the consumer and give another year of life to them. Its made with thinly sliced Ddeok or rice cake and stirred into a broth made from the simmering of marinated beef and garnished with sliced egg and gim (김- toasted seaweed seasoned with sesame oil and salt). mmmmmmm yummy~^^ Here is a picture of the lovely Ddeok Gook that my mom made me:

Doesn't it look yummy~? Yes, this is what korean families traditionally dine on during the new Year~!!
I hope you all have a great New year celebration~

Happy New Year~<3

A White After Christmas

The woes of snow and wind together: cold, Cold, COLD~! I landed in New York at 9:30pm to a chilly yet snowless christmas night. It was all together pretty cold but not as frezzing as it is now. Currently the time is 4:00am as I am typing this entry. My time zones haven't changed yet. I just noticed that I've been starting my entries with rants about the weather. Anyway, the christmas season in New York is quite nice. Except the part that it is very cold. The snow and all of the christmas lights in the neighborhood speaks Christmas. I know that christmas has passed but I can't get over it. I still feels like Christmas~! Its the week of celebration for alot of things: Jesus's Birth, A New Year, and SNOW~^^ I guess since being in Southern California, I've been deprived of Snow for a long time. I must say: I LOVE IT~<3 I don't have a picture but I can say that is a beautiful sight to see.

The Sun and Shiseido

Today was very sunny in the morning and now the chills are rushing up my spines. I noticed that lately the weather has been fluctuating from being very hot in the afternoon and extremely chilly during the night causing my skin to be patchy and dry. To treat this, I've been prompt on applying two applications of my moisturizer(Aveenos Daily moisturizer) day and night. During the day, to protect my sensitive and sun-burn prone skin, after appying moisturizer, I apply my favorite sunscreen of all time: Shiseido's Extra Smooth Sun Protection Lotion, SPF 38. I LOVE IT~ It protects and creates. The surface of my skin is instantly smooth making it the perfect base.
I've tried many sunscreens before and none of them top this one so far. Its very gentle to my skin which is very sensitive due to my Polymorphus Light Eruption(PLE). PLE is basically sun allergies. I'll get into that later on in another post. The scent is very nice too, although it disappears after about 10 minutes from application.
Well, thats it for todays post.
Love,

Finally made a blog~

Hello everyone~

Yes, I made a blog. I made one before, but with my technology challenged self, I messed it up and did not know how to fix it. So, for awhile now, I avoided getting one~ ahhhh the irony. But, I'm hoping with the help of my wonderful sister, I may just get the hang of it all.
