Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell


I finished this book in one sitting. I didn't even realize that I was about three more pages away until I finish this book. I did not want it to end because I wanted to know more about what happens to Park and Eleanor (that b*tch!). But when I reached the last page, I just want to throw it in the wall because the ending was the most disappointing ending I have ever read. Don't get me wrong, this is a painfully beautiful book, for someone like me who is very hard to please with contemporary novels, this one is getting on a par with my favorite contemporary, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.

Reading Wrap-up and my TBR Pile

Since my academic life officially ended last week, I have every luxury of time to finally catch-up on my reading! I don't even know how I managed to squeeze in three books during January and February since they were loaded with thesis + defense and other requirements. But if you're a graduating college student, you probably know how tempting it is to slack off in the academic department just because you're so fed up with everything. Maybe this was the reason why I was able to kick-in my goodreads challenge. He he he.

Laneige Snow Soothing BB Cushion Review

Ever since I ran out of my beloved Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream, I decided to try other BB creams for the sake of, err, trying them out. 

So then came Leneige. I love Laneige. I think it's the only Korean makeup brand in the country that I find "luxurious" and of high quality. I find other cheaper Korean makeup brands a little bit tacky, with their products poorly thought of.


Ever since I got into trying Laneige Water Sleeping Pack, I thought that this brand would be a good friend for my skin. Which made me end up with Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion. I looked up at pictures online and I was sold. I bought it on a whim since I was running late for school. Sadly though, it didn't live up to my beloved Missha. I would not run-down on the spec-sheet of this BB cream anymore since there are tons of different information available on the internet.
