Valentine Lunar New Year Day!



Happy Valentines Day everyone & Happy Lunar New Years! I hope that you all are having a fun romantic day or a comfy day with your family. I was laughing because someone called valentine's day, National Single Awareness day! I think today is just a cute day is dedicated to spending time with your special someone or with the people you love, it doesn't necessarily have to be your boyfriend or girlfriend. So I wanted to share with you guys a couple of pictures from my family dinner last night because the food was amazing! My mom and dad spent a few hours in the kitchen cooking this big feast. So my sister just told me that there is a pillow fight going on in my city tonight at 6! It sounds like a lot of fun but I would rather not get hit with 10 random pillows by strangers! Haha you never know where the pillow came from or who could end up being behind you! Scary fun!

 
 




Oh yeah and i finished reading Dear John. Quite frankly it was a regular chick flick type book. The ending was quite disappointing for me because it left little to yearn for or to think about. Now i'm not sure if I want to watch the movie anymore because I don't know how different it could be from the book. (SPOILERS AHEAD) It was one of those girl meets boy who saves her. Boy falls in love with girl. Boy leaves for a few years but the girl promises to write to him. Girl gets anxious and is sad because he is gone for such a long period of time. Boy comes back but leaves again soon. Girl sends letter that says she fell in love with someone else. Boy's father suddenly falls ill and ends up dying. Girl's new husband is sick so she feels guilty and stuck with him forever. Boy is still in love with the girl and decides that true love is making sacrafices for the ones you love. So he donates a bunch of money and the book ends with him watching her from a distance and she is still with her husband, but secretly is still in love with the boy. Lol the end! I liked the beginning but the ending was not satisfying!

Coming Soon on Youtube...

DIY: Foaming Soap

So lately I've been in love with bath&body work's foaming antibacterial hand soaps! They smell so yummy and the foaming is great. The foam and the friction between your hands is actually want removes the bacteria, nothing really "kills" it. (I learned that from the hospital, haha and it took me 17 years to realize that one!) So I was thinking about it the other day, I always wondered if you could reuse the containers from bath&body works to make your own foaming soap. So I Googled "reuse bath and body work foaming soap" and it actually came up! I'm truly in love! I have tried to open the container before, but I noticed that I could use a kitchen glove to open it. So for the ingredients to make the soap is, like 1 inch of soap and fill the rest of the container with water! It works great and saves a lot of money. Buying one of those foaming dispensers actually cost up to $10-$20 for a stainless steel one. But if you just buy one from bath&body works or buy them when they're on sale, they're actually only $3. Great huh? Have fun making some foaming soaps!

Glam Boutique Update/ My must watch television

Making videos lately have not been as satisfying as before. I don't know why it doesn't make me happy right now. Arg moving onto something really random. TELEVISION! Okay, i have to admit to you guys right now that I am a complete tv addict! I used to watch hours and hours of tv as a kid. and the funny thing is that I don't even have cable! So you might be wondering, what the heck is she watching? Now a days, since everything is recorded online, I watch most of my tv online. So I just want to run through my must watch shows throughout the week. I was debating if I should do this in a video or on my blog. I realized that I would much rather write it on my blog where it feels a little less critical and less in the public eye.

Sunday
Desperate Housewives

Monday
Bachelor ( Jake )
Gossip Girl
One Tree Hill
Secret Life of The American Teenager( I don't like it as much anymore

Tues
Lost

Wed
Ugly Betty

Thursday
Greys Anatomy

Wow so thats about 10-11 hours of tv, not counting the commercials! But I honestly must watch the bachelor, project runway, desperate housewives, and oth. I am watching project runway right now, and they have the campbell soup challenge! I don't have a favorite yet, but i'm sure I will later on! It makes me crave some soup right now. Wow thats a really good advertising strategy! But my heart is stuck to progresso, I love that stuff. Thats going to be me at college 247, progresso chicken noodle soup!
