life, lately #2

Life lately. I guess this can be series where I dump a few of the random/forgotten photos and update you guys on the little things that don't quite fit into a regular post...
  • Last week, I booked tickets to California to visit James during the Thanksgiving holiday cause he's working there on co-op. I'm really excited! I managed to find a good price last minute (it's last minute considering I'm booking around a holiday), which I feel really lucky for. I've never been to California before, so I guess one of the good things about a long distance relationship is getting to travel :)
  • I bought a tub of CeraVe recently. I've been lurking on /r/SkincareAddiciton for a while and learned that a high price tag on skincare doesn't necessarily mean it's better than a lower-priced item, and that sometimes basic is the best. CeraVe in the tub is HUGE considering it's only about $16. It's my first time trying a drugstore moisturizer and I hope I really like it - most people seem to - cause that means my skin will be happy without killing my wallet!
So uh, what's up with you guys?


  1. I love CeraVe! I've never tried the moisturizer in the tub, but I use their PM moisturizer and have only good things to say. (This from a girl whose entire skincare collection comes from the shelves of Sephora...)

  2. That's exciting you get to go to California!!! I want to go there so bad! I've only been once, but it was like 12 years ago so I don't remember it lol!!!

  3. so excited to hear that you're going to california!! i hope you have lots of fun and lots of sunshine :)

  5. I've only used it as my AM moisturizer twice, but I really like it so far! Also coming from a girl whose entire skincare is from Sephora... which is why it's killing my wallet haha. It's a really good alternative to the more expensive moisturizers aka I get to spend more money on makeup >:)

  6. Haha, I don't remember a lot of the places I've been to either, especially if it's 10+ years ago. I really want to go to Disneyland there!

  7. Thank you! I can't wait, especially since it'll be warmer there - I really hate the cold!

  8. Haha I think I should have been more clear about that - it's a tub of moisturizer :P It'd be a miracle if I could find a brand new tub for $16! I can't wait for California, hehe~

  9. Nice pics! And have a great time in Cali. In Canada we already had our thanksgiving :)

  10. Hope you'll have lots of fun in Cali! Yeah, LDR seems tough but fun too at the same time :D
