Pieces of Life: The K-Drama Edition

really

Hey guys!

I’m on my latest K-Drama kick so I thought I’d do a “Pieces of Life” Edition about it as I’m wondering what everyone is watching at the moment.

I’m currently trying to get through I Really, Really Like You but for some reason it’s slow going so far…hmmmmm…must be me being tired perhaps!

Jump ahead to read more!

I’m positive that I’m not only tired but the bloody subtitles are moving so fast that I can’t take a breath to actually watch anything hehe! But so far it’s a bit on the meh side.

I+Really,+Really+Like+You+3

I+Really,+Really+Like+You+2

I waited ages to purchase it via YesAsia but they only ever had the Part 1 Box Set in stock (finally Box Set 2 is out) and I just couldn’t wait any longer so I had it CP’ed from Malaysia. Impatient is the Muse but hey it actually worked out way cheaper but only prob is the damn subtitles!

There really hasn’t been much in the way of releases that I’ve really wanted to see aside from Iljimae. Lurve me some Lee Jun Ki, WANT! I just recently finished re-watching Sweet 18. I dunno what happened but one day I was listening to the soundtrack and suddenly the urge to re-watch it was upon me, glad I did it’s such a fab drama!

Anyway!

What’s playing on your telly at the moment or DVD?

Have you seen I Really, Really Like You (Love Truly)?

Whatcha think?

Pieces of Life: The Twilight DVD Edition

Hello kids.

Welcome to Pieces of Life: The Twilight DVD Edition.

Did I totally hear some of you start to scream and cry? I did right? The Muse is fond of musing about our friend Edward so of course she had to muse a little about the release of Twilight on DVD today and alert you all that it’s coming to a DVD near you on March 21st!

Get our your Eau de Edward and your Mrs Cullen T-Shirts and brace yourself for a re-watch of Twilight in the comfort of your own home.

perfume

The Muse happens to be a purist and she will say, possibly to your horror, that I hated the movie with a passion. Robert Pattinson? Well hello gorgeous I’d do you (Side Note: I wasn’t thinking that after I heard he hadn’t washed his hair in a few weeks ewww)! But honestly, let’s be honest ok? Honestly, aside from the one scene with saliva exchange between Robert and Kristen there was absolutely none of the chemistry, none of the passion, none of the emotion that the books detailed so beautifully. I can debate and rant this bloody topic all day with you but I shall say no more.

The important moral of this story is Twilight is available on DVD as of March 21st and of course yours truly will be buying it and rewatching it just in case it was good…one never knows as the Muse seen it on the first day it released and sat between many a screaming and squealing teenage girl..wait..that was my mate Jai who was squealing sorry about that…who knows maybe it was good and all the squealing took away from award winning performances…but I’m not counting on it!

Go ahead…

Rave it or rant it!

My comment box is your comment box!

PS the Muse is, as always, a Team Edward player! Go Team Edward!

Pieces of Life: Open Mic Edition, Ask the Muse!

Hey guys!

If you’ve been reading my little blog for a while now chances are you realize what a crumb I am with e-mails. It’s gotten considerably worst as my blog has grown up. I apologize in a major way if you’ve written to me and are still awaiting my reply. It’s no excuse but I am rubbish at organizing my inbox and it’s overflowing (literally) with unread e-mails that I seriously need to go through!


Which is why I decided to create a little open mic post! So here it is, my comment box is open and I’m ready for your dying questions. Post ‘em below and I’ll answer them all personally.

Wanna know my favorite color? Favorite concealer? What I think of a certain cosmetic brand? Where I shop? What I had for dinner yesterday? Favorite skincare? How to use some makeup item or another?

Ask away and I’ll answer!

Happy posting!

Looking forward to talking to you all soon!

Pieces of Life: The Currency Edition

Just a friendly note from your Muse about Asian Spring Collections, currency, and other general babblings about saving your money.

I know quite a few of you have recently e-mailed me about how exciting you’re finding the Lunasol Spring Collection and I totally agree it’s very, very nice. I have my eye on a few items from Lunasol at the moment, Jill Stuart, and a few other high street Japanese brands however I am playing it safe at the moment as the yen is very strong.

At the moment a palette of 5,600 yen will be jacked up at nearly $10 with the current conversion rate. Wince. It’s not only USD that’s feeling the brunt, if you’re converting from Singaporean dollar or sterling at the moment it comes to almost the same amount only off by a mere $1 USD and some change. I do urge you to wait if you’re purchasing items that aren’t LE at the moment as the conversion rate really does drain the pockets.

This is of course in terms of direct purchasing from Japan and not going through a secondary online shopping party. I noticed that palettes are racing up to $75 USD at certain online shops which I really find intense and a tiny bit absurd. The Muse loves herself some makeup but $75 per a palette…that’s a bit much.

Korean Won looks particularly gloomy as well but remains at a 100% return on the US dollar which is perfectly fine in my opinion however I do expect a tiny bit more on my dollar when converting and became a bit spoiled with that aspect but at least I’m not losing money during the conversion which is always a plus.

TWD, SGD, and Sterling are iffy at best. Particularly sterling, as always, converts like rubbish but not too severe.

Well anyway I can go on and on I fear but the moral of the story is at the moment if you’re shopping Spring Collections abroad do take into consideration your current conversion rate, stop, think, and ask yourself if you really need it right now or if it can wait until currency conversions are looking a tiny bit better. If it’s LE I do suggest snapping it up but if it’ll be around you can always wait a bit and get it later on.

Of course, I should take my own advice in this but the Muse is known for wanting instant gratification when it comes to makeup and she fears she’ll give in to her urges prior to thinking about it which will bite into a large chunk of her Spring Collection budget! Yak! Groan!

How’s your currency converting at the moment?

Yay or Nay?

Tell the Muse!
