K talk: (rant) CNBLUE! I'm selling tickets!

Hi guys!

So here I'm going to rant about how I got tickets to CN Blue concert in Sydney. Yes I did get tickets but here's the thing...

I made an order for 3 VIP standing concert tickets at 9.02am, which the tickets were on sale at 9.00am on the Saturday morning. And I got the number of confirmation, and so I checked to Facebook to see whether I was to pay them (the company organizing the event) that day or to wait for a confirmation email. And so, I decided to pay at 9.34am. By this time I was like "YES! I GOT VIP TICKETS TO CNBLUE'S CONCERT!". A few days later, I got the confirmation email saying that I was confirmed for the VIP tickets. And so I was set!

But then...

A few hours later that same day, I get another email stating "we have oversold the VIP tickets and unfortunately you have been moved down to A Standing tickets (which is the crappy tickets). WHAT??? This made me quite angry for a few days, in fact I'm still angry now! So I agreed to get the A Standing tickets and now was waiting to get my refund (VIP tickets were $159 and A Standing was $99). My anger grew because it took them almost a month for them to return my money! 

But then...

News came out a few days ago that there was going to be a Melbourne concert due to the popularity. Great... I get tickets for the Sydney tickets and went through all this trouble, and now I pretty much don't need them anymore because I'll be purchasing the Melbourne tickets. I'm not mad at CNBLUE of course, as  I am stoked that they're coming to Melbourne, I am mad at the organizers because
1) I was on the site at pretty much at the exact time the tickets where on sale and I didn't end up getting what I wanted.
2) It took them pretty much a month to give me the difference in money

And now...
So I'm planning to get tickets to the Melbourne concert and I hope to do so (as the organizers have used another way to sell tickets- which will hopefully be more successful) and I'll be then left with 3 tickets to the Sydney concert. SO I'M SELLING ALL 3 TICKETS TO THE SYDNEY CONCERT! That's right. I'LL BE SELLING THEM FOR $80 (compared to $99) WITH NO OTHER PAYMENTS FOR SENDING THEM OUT. THIS IS FOR AUSTRALIAN RESIDENCE ONLY AND WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTING BANK TRANSFER AS A PAYMENT. IF YOU HAVE INTEREST, PLEASE EMAIL AT trangluu3380544@gmail.com.

Well I'm sorry if this is too much of a negative post, but hopefully someone out there gets my tickets so that they don't have to go through what I went through.

MASSIVE HAUL!! (like no joke massive)

Hi guys!
So yesterday I found from other bloggers that there's going to be a 40% off all beauty items at Priceline (Australian drugstore) on the 23rd and 24th this month, so today I went in to see what I could grab my hands on. I went there in the afternoon and holy crap, was there a massive amount of people! I've never seen so many people at Priceline at one time before! Anyway, here are the things I got!

Loreal Colour Caresse Shine Stain in 501 Bonnie and 200 Princess, Physicians Formula Magic Mosaic Multi-Colored Custom Light Bronzer, Revlon Lipbutter in 015 Tutti Fruitti, Australis Crystal Colour Top Coat in 51077 Speck-Tacular, Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant in 275 Wine Stain and 220 Toasted Almond, Covergirl LashBlast Fusion in Black Brown Waterproof, Bourjois Touche Healthy Mix Brush Concealer in no#61

Well you think that's it don't you? WELL YOU'RE WRONG! They had an offer where if you spend more than $70 (I think) you get a gift bag full of goodies!

The bag the goodies come in. It's pretty big and quite sturdy!

Manicure Cuticle Therapy, Ecotools Bath Sponge, Nude Undercover Airbrush Mineral Primer, Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch in 004 Shimmering Sand, Australis Paparazzi Perfect High Definition Brightener, Bourjoirs Volume Glamour MAX Mascara, Models Prefer Brow Highlighter, Revlon Lipbutter in 085 Sugar Plum, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish in 670 Midnight in NY, Kiss Everlasting French, Press and Go Nail Covers, Savvy Makeup Remover Wipes (not in image above), Nation Lipstick (not in image above- the colour was not to my liking so I gave it to my mum/ mom)

Yes that is all the things I got in one outing! Some of the things from the gift set I will give away for a future giveaway and will be giving out to some of my friends; the Rimmel product and Australis highlighter I will give away to a friend because the shades are too dark for me T_T. If you have a Priceline near by, then definitely take advantage of this offer, as some may know Australia kind of has crappy sales and they are quite rare (and considering most of out beauty items are priced very high compared to other countries). After listing all of the things I got today, I don't think I'm going to buy anymore products for a while. If you want a review for any of these products, leave a comment below! ^_^

Empties + Products I'm throwing away

Hi guys!
So sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been quite busy at university and my assignments are now slowly building up. This post is going to be all about products I've used up as well as some items that I've kept for longer than what is expected and of course there will be a mini review.

Missha Super Aqua Hydrating Emulsion
I've used this for about a year now. It's ok. Quite hydrating for dry skin, but not enough on it's own. Might be too hydrating for extremely oily skin. The only thing I hate about this is the packaging; there is a bit of product left but because it's a glass jar, I have to bang the bottom to get product out which can be time consuming and frustrating. Not going to buy this again only because I want to try other products as well.

Lancome Hydra Zen Neurocalm
This was bought on a whim. I bought this quite a while ago, and used this while my skin was quite crazy with breakouts and extremely dry and flaky skin. This was one of the products that saved my skin, but I will not buy this again because it is quite expensive ($70 from what I remember) and also because my skin condition has changed.

St Ives Green Tea Scrub
This is a life saver! Some scrubs are more harsh and make my skin quite irritated and sometimes I find that there is still flaky skin left on my face. I tried this beginning of last year and have continued using it since. I can use this everyday mixed with my cleanser and it's gentle and does the job. I have already repurchased this and I probably will for a long time.

St Ives Apricot Scrub
One of the first scrubs I used. It felt quite harsh on my skin, thus I changed to the Green Tea scrub, but when I went back to the Apricot scrub just to finish the bottle, I started liking it again. It's great as an extra scrub once a week for a 'pick me up'. I have repurchased this also.

Holika Holika Flying Mascara in No#1 Curling
This is an ok mascara. It does curl your lashes and keeps them curled for the whole day. Does give a bit of volume. There is just something about the mascara that doesn't make me love it. Will not repurchase again.

Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Pencil Liner
This was the first pencil eyeliner I tried when I first got into makeup. It's ok, but even though it says waterproof, it still smudges like crazy on my lids, and by the end of the day, I get panda eyes and of course noone wants that. I'm not sure if they still sell this but either way, will not be repurchasing.

T.N Dickson's Witch Hazel
One of the products that I tried to calm my skin back in the days. Many people have said that this was a lifesaver and killed all of their breakouts. Honestly it didn't really do anything for me. I'd say if you have little to mild breakouts then you might want to try this out, but if you have severe acne, then save your money for something else. As you can see there is product left. I'm trying to detox my skin (which I will talk about in my next post) thus I am throwing this away.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner
Again, another product to try clear my skin. This didn't do anything. It was good in the morning if I didn't want to clean my face in the morning but other than that, it didn't have a real purpose. This is for acne prone skin, but the weird thing is, is that it as alcohol in it which alcohol is known to irritate acne prone skin. I would get severe breakouts and use this, and it would just make my skin sting like crazy for like a minute. I tried to use this all up, but I couldn't do it! Will not repurchase again.

Man, I felt like this post is a very negative one. Do you guys have any product recommendations?
