LOTD, learning Korean, new dress!

For my birthday I asked for Rosetta Stone: Korean (levels 1 & 2) from my parents.  I just started using it a few days ago, and I've been using it a little over an hour every day so far.
Rosetta Stone V4 TOTALe: Korean Level 1-2 Set

I'm going to Korea in May with my fiance to meet his parents!  I hope I can hold basic conversations with them in Korean by then.   I'll keep you updated on my progress!

Anyhowwww I'm having a late birthday party/practice bachelorette party this Saturday.  One of my friends is home in Michigan from Korea, and another friend is driving up from Kentucky and I'm sooo excited to see them!  The theme is "Pretty in Pink"  (LOL I did not pick the theme) so everyone has to wear PINK!

Tae (aka fiance, I don't use his name often on blog) got me this dress for my party (even though he's not invited!)  In general it's not my style, but it fits the "pink theme" and is super flattering on ;)

So here is a LOTD from Saturday night.  I was going out to meet some friends for cocktails, so I did some dark "evening eyes."  Haaaaaa.

I don't feel like listing the products unless you want to know what any of them are specifically, then I'll let you know!

Also, the fingernail polish I'm wearing in my "Asian Survival Kit" post is called "Off With Her Red" by OPI and it's GREAT.  I got it for $3 and it's the perfect matte red.  I've had it on for almost 2 full weeks and it still looks great!

Today I am 24.

Today is my birthday!  I'm going to spend the day with my fiance: a little shopping, a little eating, and a little wine.  Sounds good to me!

I'm feeling pretty... elderly...

8 years ago I was 16....
16-year-old "I'm way too cool for this" face

the majority of my close friends were... and still are... asian... lol

5 years ago I was 19... and disgustingly skinny.
Please excuse my bony-ness, I was 5'6" tall and 106 lbs (not on purpose)

 and 20 years old...
super cute ganache bday cake! it was like 10 lbs heavy!
 3 years ago I was 21...!!
2 of my favorite people in the world:  Asmait and Michelle 
There's always something crazy that happens when we go out....  hahaha poor guy

 2 years ago I was 22...
yeah i know... CRAZY BANGS

A random guy at the bar who kept kissing my hand bought $400 worth of champagne for me/my friends.  We all had our own bottles... but mine was the most expensive one of COURSE.  :P  Then he shook one of the bottles and got a bunch of people soaked in champagne and promptly got kicked out!  It was pretty excellent.

A year ago I was 23!
3 of my best friends!  Michelle, Choua, and Stacey.  Do any of you recognize one of them?  Cuz you should!  Hehehe she's gonna kill me when she sees this.  Hey, you might even recognize 2 of them... ;)

My big brother!  (I was in a co-ed fraternity in college)

Birthday presents from one of my BFFs, Choua, A DEEP FRYER.  That girl knows what's up!  

I loveeee to dance, even though I am most likely really terrible at it!

"Asian Survival Kit" and FOTD!

Sorry I've been MIA.  I have no excuse for it.  Now that's covered!

I have some fun pictures to post!  First I want to show you all a Christmas present I got from Verina in Singapore!  She calls it the "Official Asian Survival Kit" and I love it!  I've never tried any asian makeup/beauty products before, and she even included circle lenses!  THANK YOU VERINA!  I  love everything!


Unfortunately it's not packaged as cute as it was originally, because my fiance picked it up from the post office and opened it before I got to do so (I gave him the OK).  I'm sure he ate half the candy before I even saw it, too!  :P

Perfect purse-size!  I've been using so much hand lotion to keep my hands pretty now that I've got  engagement bling!

I am eating this right now :)

maroon lenses!  These look so cool on (images below)

"Jeweling Eyes"  sparkly eyeshadow!
Definitely cannot read any of this ahaha

Really tasty candy (some of it's gone already) and Hello Kitty pencil!

I loveeee this peachy lipstick!  I don't have anything this color so its perfect!
Face masks... this makes me feel fancy!  

Thanks for the gift, Verina!  You will definitely be getting a gift in return ;) I will just have to look for some goodies that are equally cool!  <3 

Now for some FOTD pics from today wearing the new lenses!  I am also wearing the lipstick and the eyeshadows from the asian kit!  Do you see the transformation from white girl to asian yet??

I will take better quality photos someday, but for now this is what you all get!

Do I look asian with this pose?  Haha

Super coooool!  And also, I'm into very natural mascaras lately, which is new for me.
