Haul: Daiso & Target
School will be starting again in a matter of weeks, so I started to shop around for some supplies. Here are some of the things I’ve acquired over the past couple of days.
I’ve been using this shampoo for a while now, and although it can be a bit pricey for the average shampoo - $6 - something about it draws me back to it every time. Perhaps it’s the smell… but it also does a good job keeping my hair healthy.
This is going to be my first time using this Neutrogena face wash. I normally use http://www.neutrogena.com/product/oil-free+acne+stress+control-+power-cream+wash.do?sortby=ourPicks (which works quite well), but I just wanted to try out something a little different.
Since I am the goddess of oily skin (haha), I always always always carry oil blotting sheets around with me everywhere I go. I normally use either the brand they carry at Target or Clean & Clear, but I found some at Daiso, so I decided to give it a try. For those of you who don’t know, Daiso basically sells everything for $1.50 ~ The blotting sheets are obviously cheaper than the ones I normally use - they’re a lot thinner. I can use approximately 3 sheets each time, but hey… still works. I’d probably recommend these for those of you who kind of have oily skin and just need a light touch up during the day.
a monday afternoon
I fortunate to be able to spend the day with my dearest roommate Samantha. We decided to visit the Huntington Library (on this very hot and humid day) just for the scenery. The library never ceases to amaze me - there’s always something I either haven’t seen or have never even heard of. The funny thing was that we somehow got a free tour of the remainder of the place halfway through our experience from the security… lucky us! Although it was a semi-weird situation, the fact that we were able to skip out on walking was definitely a thumbs up.
Here are some of the pictures from today:
Zen master Sam -
We got a bit hungry afterwards, so we stopped by Honey Badger Café.
I had the chicken pesto sandwich which was pretty delicious. Sam tried out the spinach salad (I forgot what it was called - sorry!). We shared some sweet potato fries - yummy! The place was a really nice and relaxed environment - perfect for studying or just hanging out.
We also drove home with her convertible top down while blasting Jay Park’s “Joah” on her speakers and singing along. It was awesome.
