Hello everyone! This week I’m starting a brand new series on Hello Jaa called Weekly Tidbits where I’ll be talking about random stuff that happened that week. Sometimes I just have so many little things to share. For example, small hauls that are not worth making a full blog post on, useful information I found on the web, random plugs, life in general, behind the scenes photos, makeup and photography tips and tricks, and so on. Basically any random things I can think of will be included! I hope you enjoy and that you’ll share with me some of the random things that happened in your week, too! :)
-ONE- This week I started a brand new bottle of the giant-size (3.4 fl oz / 100 ml) Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II that I purchased from the airport during my flight back to Thailand. I first heard of this jumbo size from Anne at Linda.Libra.Loca so I made it my priority to hunt it down at the airport! I was also given a mini-size Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum with my purchase, too. :D
-TWO- I finally finished building a new lightbox! I was going to film the process but I decided not to because we couldn’t find the same materials we used back in the US and had to make do with whatever we could find at where we live so the whole thing turned out to be a little more complicated than it’s supposed to be. For example, we couldn’t find a box big enough so we had to use strips of foam to make our own box! Then we had to reinforce it with more materials. I wouldn’t want to confuse you with the way we built it but if you’re looking for a simple step-by-step guide, here’s a link I recommend you check it out.
-THREE- Before my move, I thought everything was going to be smooth and simple. I thought I’d just unpack, sleep and relax, set up my office, and resume my blogging schedule right away. In my mind life would be easy and non-stressful. LITTLE DID I KNOW! It’s been almost a month and I am still not settled in! I have a backlog of reviews I need to finish that I am still so far behind. Then there are new things that I so desperately want to talk about that I’m afraid by the time I get to them, they will be ancient! LOL! Additionally, I also have other non-blog-related stuff to take care of. I have moved so many times in my life but this one gives me the worst headache! >.<
-FOUR- Last Sunday I decided to join in on the fun of Songkran festival (I wasn’t planning to, I mean hot sun, water, and crowds?! I’d normally run the other way but my boyfriend wanted to see it, LOL). Songkran is basically the Thai New Year and it happens to be in the hottest month of the year. How do we celebrate? By throwing water to each other using water cannons! It was so crazy, water shooting from everywhere, and no amount of sunscreen can protect you from getting sun tanned. LOL. I came home almost 2 shades darker than when I left!
-FIVE- My most exciting find this week has to be these erasable gel pens! They write so well; the ink is dark, the flow is smooth, and yes, they are erasable! Just use the rubber end to erase and that’s it! It doesn’t leave any type of residue on the paper. No ink stain left behind, no scratches like when you use a traditional pen eraser. Not to mention they are so so cute! They are all black ink but you know me, they come in different caps so I had to buy them all. ;D
And that’s a wrap for this week! I hope you’re having a great weekend so far! Let me know in the comments whether you’ve enjoyed reading this post. I’d love to hear from all of you! :)
