Birthday Thoughts

My birthday is coming up!

I want to treat myself to a little change. :face17::l: Just something simple. At first, I considered getting a new set of lobe piercings, but unfortunately, I'm one of those people who keloid easily. :face60: I don't want to risk scarring (again), so I quickly dropped that idea.

Instead, I'm coloring my hair! :face42: It's been a while since I did anything to it--I don't even remember the last time I had it trimmed since I'm growing it out--so I'm really excited. I already booked an appointment with Bórjan. It's a salon right by the ocean! Wow :a1: I was going to stick to my usual salon, but after reading absolutely glowing reviews on Bórjan, I thought I'd try something new. :l: Plus, did I mention it's next to the freakin' ocean??

The view from the salon, which is really beautiful. I have my appointment during the evening, shortly after work. I can't wait! :face43::a2: It'll be even prettier because of the fairy lights dangling around. :129::23::129: Anyway, I'm going to ask for a shade similar to this:

A cool chocolate brown, as modeled by the lovely Tsubasa Masuwaka. Damn, I wish I had skin as white as hers! :face9: She pulls off any hair color. Brown will have to do for now, but personally, if I was any paler I wouldn't hesitate to dye my hair all kinds of crazy colors.

Well, that's it for now. Looking forward to my special day! :86:

Two Darling Rings

I've been meaning to blog about this!

Last week after brunch, I bought two rings from a local shop called Village House. Actually, I was eyeing these for a good week before I finally decided to get them. :face20: They're just darling and dainty! One is rose gold, trimmed with faux diamonds, and the other is a string of minute pearls with a single, dangling faux diamond. I paid ¥580 for both.

They're great to stack! :a1: I've been wearing the pearl ring on the bottom and the rose gold on top, usually on my pinky finger. I'd love to get more rings like these. I don't wear rings often enough, so right now I only have a couple in my jewelry box. :g: But I love the idea of wearing lots of delicate rings on your fingers--sort of like having multiple studs.

When adorned with the right accessories, I think it can look romantic. (Img from Tumblr)

There's this girl who works at the bank I go to, and I don't mean to be such a lesbo, but I can't stop looking at her whenever I visit. :face54: Like, seriously--she reminds me of those pretty hipster girls you see on Tumblr: doe eyes and no makeup but a dash of eyeliner and a fluff of mascara. Anyway, the last time I went to make a deposit, she was wearing pearl studs--three on each ear. I thought it looked so cute! She's making me want more piercings.

Food Snaps at Climax Coffee

Had brunch at my favorite café, Climax Coffee I love going here; it's such a treat! Much better than Starbucks in my opinion. Starbucks is always so crowded and noisy... and not to mention overrated. I prefer the quieter atmosphere of Climax. Plus the omnoms are delicious, and the wifi is super fast lol. I plan lunch dates with friends every week or so. Sometimes I'll bring my MacBook and work on some classwork by myself, too.

This time I ordered the pasta set with soup, pasta alla genovese, and a hot caffé mocha. For dessert, I ordered a chocolate shake and tried their new macadamia pancakes.

The verdict? The pancakes were wonderful! Not too sweet, and not too rich. Served hot, too! I can see myself craving these at 2am. Will definitely order them again!

Love. Sick. Literally.

Last night after work, Marcus picked me up so we could spend time together. It was wonderful! So nice and relaxing. I love cuddling with him; it's one of my favorites! Plus, Marcus is affectionate himself. Sometimes, I'll be sitting on the couch fiddling with my iPhone, and he'll scooch closer to rest his head on my lap. Awww. :n:

We watched All Dogs Go to Heaven since I haven't seen it before.

All in all, it was a good night.

... But now I'm sick.

Actually, I've been feeling sickly the past couple of days, so I started consuming DayQuil and sipping Vitamin Water. I'm sure these helped, but I guess my body just wasn't strong enough to fight it off, and I ended up coming down with a fever during the night. Effing fabulous.

At least my mum bought me yummy takoyaki from the local farmers' market. :a1: Even if I could only manage to chew on two (my throat hurt), I can count on hot takoyaki to lift my spirits. I don't think I'd pass some up--even if I was on my deathbed. :a: LOOOL
