March Favorites

150409_MarchFavorites

I’ve got a couple of March favorites. I had to think hard about these, but yeah, I’ve been going back to these guys a lot in March. Since I work out first thing in the morning, I’ve been needing some sort of pre-workout meal / snack and I think I saw either a blog post or video from viviannadoesmakeup about ‘Peanut Butter-stuffed Date’ as a good workout snack. I was having oatmeal, but I found it a bit heavy and I don’t think I was quickly digesting it before I head out. I really don’t have a favorite brand of date, but this is my favorite brand of peanut butter: Fred Meyer Brand Natural Creamy. It’s just peanuts and oil, and I have to keep it in the fridge. I’m really loving this quick meal with coffee on my drive to the gym.

Since the weather lately has been a bit bipolar here, my hair has bit too much volume for my taste. And since I use a flat iron on most days, I’ve been giving it beating. So after I wash my hair, I’ve been applying L’Oréal Sleek It Frizz Vanishing Cream before letting it air dry. Then when my roots are almost dry, I’ve been applying Gariner Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum to the body and ends of the hair. This combo is working great with my hair, plus using the Wen Cleansing Conditioner instead of soap and keeping washing my hair to only two-three times a week. It works for my hair!

My next fave is the Sephora Instant Nail and Cuticle Care. I didn’t think I was going to be using this very much, but since I’ve been doing my nails every week (and constantly washing them since there are people in the office passing colds around again), it has been a lifesaver of keeping my nail area from drying and cracking. I totally recommended it to a friend who cuticles were getting a bit out of control!

I’ve also been reaching for my Forever21 Blush and I’ve been using it so much that I no longer know the shade since it has rubbed off. So it’s a favorite along with my epicurean lip balm. I started reaching for that one again when the weather started getting cold again and I had to turn on the heater. Cracked lips are never good.

And for my fashion favorites, of course my new Wayfarer-dupe sunglasses from Amazon, but i also got a couple of tops from Old Navy that I’ve worn every week. I got a really soft grey sweater on clearance and a new white tank. The tank is a little different from all my other ones as it is a bit more relax and slouchy. Loving it!

And with that, I’m going leave you with my song that was on repeat, and still it, Pharrell Williams’ Happy. I just don’t know why, but it makes me want to dance. Maybe it’s the weather…

I Run on K-Pop Playlist

Yeah, I’m that girl you see at the gym with her Yurbud headphones on the treadmill performing some HIIT runs, completely zoned-out from any other person in the gym. Typically huffing & puffing while she uses the weight-machines while bobbing her head to some silent music only she can hear. But what most of my fellow gym member is that the music playing is usually K-Pop. Yeah, K-pop. The wonderful world of boy-bands and girl-groups singing and dancing in-sync wearing either the tightest pants ever or the shortest skirt possible.

Don’t judge me. I like what I like and K-Pop make me happy! Here’s my current running playlist:

  1. Fire – Mad Clown Featuring Jinsil 
  2. Sticky, Sticky – Hello Venus
  3. Bang Bang (NaDa Solo) – Wa$$up
  4. I’m Different – Hi Suhyun Featuring Bobby
  5. Stop, Stop It – Got7 (Don’t even try to understand the fashion in this one…)
  6. Good Boy – GD x Taeyang
  7. Miss Me or Diss Me – MC Mong
  8. Come Here – Masta Wu Featuring Dok2 & Bobby
  9. War of Hormone – BTS
  10. Go Crazy! – 2PM
  11. My Copycat – Orange Carmel
  12. Touch My Body – Sistar
  13. Kiss Kiss – Ladies’ Code
  14. Growl – Exo (Some of the best group dancing I’ve seen!)

Now, I don’t just listen to K-pop. I do occasionally stick in some English pop music or local alternative bands in there that I’m currently enjoying, but despite my age, I’m going to be a k-pop fan forever.

This is my new FM transmitter I order from amazon! I’ve spent the last 6 months unable to listen to my own music (mainly kpop), and had to suffer with the random stations via car attena.
