MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

4 stars

This was M-A-G-I-C-A-L! I loved almost everything about this drama, the cinematography was phenomenal. The story was very well told, the actors did an AMAZING job. I love Lee Dong-Wook, he is such a talented actor.  Truly a beautiful drama to end the year.

Another surprise I got was Kim Bum! I loved him in “Boys Over Flowers” and now seeing him in this drama was so cool. He aged like fine wine.

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

It was there! And that’s amazing. Jo Bo-Ah in the first episode tried too hard(I mean…I got it…your male lead is a legend), but after it…they worked better together.

It was a nice wrap-up, I didn’t expect it. Was it my favorite? Not really…that’s why it’s not a 5-star drama.

This month my theme was Christmas! I’m so excited about Christmas…you have no idea. So for the title page, I decided to do Christmas trees and little snowflakes.

She is determined to get over what she considers this curse of not being able to experience love.

MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

The whole drama started pretty awkward, the actors didn’t do a great job but with time they worked it out and the drama got sooo much better.I expected a little bit different story then I got. It looked like a fun comedy .but in reality  It’s more “grown up”, I would call it a “melodrama” in a way. I liked it. The plot was interesting,I liked the on/off relationship dynamic.

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

 

Ong Seong Wu Is Determined To Keep Seeing Shin Ye Eun In "More Than  Friends" Episode 3 - kdramadiary

The main romantic plot was a love triangle, it’s not my favorite trope in a romance ,but it was done okay. To be honest I had the worst second-lead syndrome ever in this drama! If you don’t know Second Lead Syndrome or SLS is when you root for the second male lead in a drama and wish the female lead would choose him although you know that it wouldn’t happen.Maybe it was because the chemistry was stronger with the second lead then our main love interest. This romance wasn’t the only one we saw. The friendgroup had they’re own romance/problems we saw here and there and I loved watching it.

 

HOW IT ENDS

*Mild Spoilers*

I expected the ending! It was good,sweet and we got answers to some questions. I’m okay with it.

Aliexpress Haul “everything under 5 euros”

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? Finally, my orders from Aliexpress are coming in, most of those are Holiday gifts for my friends and family. If you don’t know AliExpress is a popular online store for buying products at much cheaper prices than Amazon and other similar services. Everything is under 5 euros, so very affordable!

ede0755338e6a4e41de86c09614db4f9_decorative-underline-clipart-clipartfest-drawing-art-_370-370

Let’s dive into the goodies!

VPB S32 earphones

The best cheap earphones I have ever got! This is my second order from this particular store, so I have already tested those earphones and I can say…those are heavy-duty(I’m not gentle with my earphones, so I change them regularly), and the sound is pretty good. In this order, I got one pair for myself as a backup and one for my brother as a stocking stuffer. The shipping was super fast too, A little over a week to Latvia.

Men’s Autumn Summer Socks 

Another stocking stuffer for my brother. I know it wasn’t intentional, but the little color stripe looks like a Latvian flag. That’s the main reason why I got this pair, and the price was amazing(around 0.80 euro). Quality is pretty good, definitely stretchy cotton. Would recommend!

Cotton Christmas Socks

Aren’t those cute?! Super affordable and super cute. To be honest, I got the cheaper Santa socks, but they send me those …I’m not mad about it. Shipping was fast, the quality is okay. I paid 0.56 euro.

925 Sterling Silver Leaves Long Tassels Earrings

This is a gift for my mom. She loves silver jewelry, and those looked like something she will enjoy. It was an 11.11 deal and I paid around 1.33 euro I think. The quality is amazing and it came with a pouch and a cloth to polish earrings. Very happy with the purchase. The shipping was a little over two weeks to Latvia from China.

Packaging

neptune-for-blog-1-horz

This is the third palette I have from this brand. Very well made, the packaging is cardboard, it has a magnetic closure. Easy to carry in your bag, would love to have a mirror, but that’s just me.

 

Texture and Quality

IMG-20201008-152847

Easy to blend, like it’s suuupppeeerr easy! Eyeshadow doesn’t have any scent and that’s amazing. Doesn’t stain my eyelids. The Yellow shade is powdery and the shimmery shades don’t work well with brushes, but that’s my only complaint.

OVERALL

4 stars

   Pros  

  • Affordable
  • Travel-friendly
  • Beautiful color story
  • Great pigment
  • Cute Packaging

  • Shimmery shades don’t work well with brushes

TEXTURE AND QUALITY

It’s oily…like REALLY oily. Don’t know how it is marketed for “oily and Acne pron” skin.

THE PRICE

I paid around 5 euros with a 30% discount. So it was pretty affordable.

SKIN AFTER USE

IT RUINED MY SKIN! I’m serious. My skin became,2 hours after using this one, super oily like you can FRY FOOD ON IT OILY. I thought it’s one of those products that made your skin worst before making it better(we all know “those” products), but no…My skin is still awful because of this product…and I’m still trying to fix the mess. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND if your skin is not sensitive or is super oily to being with.

PACKAGING

It’s the same plastic as the first one, I liked the pump it was pretty handy. You can see the product easily…but to be honest I would love to see it in clear plastic not blue.

TEXTURE AND QUALITY

It’s a thick gel-like formula, very gentle ..too gentle in my opinion because my face still felt dirty after washing it.

THE PRICE

The same as the first product, around 5 euros with the discount.

SKIN AFTER USE

It was one of the worst face washing gels I have ever used! And I have used a lot of those. It’s…simply awful, my face was oily, my acne got worst …It’s just a mess. Would not recommend it at all!
