Vans Warped Tour 2014

July 24, 2014
I went to the Vans Warped Tour for the first time yesterday with my two cousins. I don't listen to much bands, but I decided to go along with them anyways because I wanted to experience what it's like. I'm pretty open to different types of music so why not?

There were a lot of vendors around that had a lot of cool merchandise. One of the ones that we stopped by was the Vans tent. There was actually multiple ones around the whole venue. The three of us decided to get a souvenir here. We got matching tops and free hats! They had a deal  for buy a top for $10/$15 and get a free hat/wallet/draw string backpack so of course we took advantage of it!

Mayday Parade

Free Peace Tea drinks!
We saw a booth selling vegan things and I just took a picture of the stuff it had. I really liked the tank that says "I don't eat anything that poops" LOL. I told my cousins to get it since they're vegetarians, but they didn't want to spend more money. Plus, it was pretty overpriced - $20 for a tank? 
Taking some selfies before the next band starts~

I loved how colorful this was so we took a picture in front of it. 
Soon after other people did the same thing haha!
We got a free coupon ribbon bracelet, but my cousin accidentally made his too tight and we tried to get it off of him. We EVENTUALLY found a booth that had scissors to cut it.

The Summer Set
More selfies since we're waiting. 
Plus, we were so tired and sweaty from walking around and jumping.

The Maine

Checking to see what band is up next.

The Ready Set
Out of all the bands we went to, this was the only band that sung a song I knew LOL.
♪ Love like Woe 

Afterward, we stood in line to get a picture with The Maine. 
~*~*forever alone*~*~
(He was tired).

The Maine
Me and one of the band members had similar sunglasses AND was wearing our snapbacks the same way!
He complimented on my sunnies hehe~

After getting the picture we were on our way home.
This picture does not do justice to how it really looks in real life. It was beautiful.

We stopped by 7-Eleven to get a cold drink before heading home again.

Overall, I had a pretty rad time at the Warped Tour. I'm so surprised that my makeup did not melt and was pretty much on point for the whole day even though it was sweltering outside. Also, I was surprised that I actually knew one song so I was pretty pump for that haha. If I do go again next year, I will definitely know what to expect and better prepare for it. Hopefully, I'll know more bands by then and enjoy it to the fullest! 



[Sponsored] Kracie Hadabisei CQ10 Facial Sheet Mask Review

July 19, 2014

Today I am sharing a facial sheet mask review with you all. It seems like ages since I last reviewed one of these. 
Lately, I have not been loving my skin. I keep getting these random dry patches and feel like my skin did not look and feel as youthful as it used to. It might also be the fact that my sister told me that people with dry skin tend to not age as well as those with oily skin, and I guess that mentality was stuck in my head. I started to notice wrinkles around my eyes and even crows-feet! I also felt like my cheeks were not as firm as my sister's whom is only a year and a half younger than me. I felt old even though I'm just 21! 

Anyway, enough of my rambling. So because of all of that, I decided that I'll try one of the masks that I received from efacemask a while ago. It's the Japanese brand mask, Kracie Hadabisei CQ10 Facial Sheet Mask, that emphasizes on firming.
First impression:
When I first opened the package, I noticed that the mask was different than the previous ones that I have tried. This sheet mask has a waffle texture similar to paper towels. I also noticed that the serum looked milky and lotion-y and soaked the sheet mask. I didn't take a before picture because it was really wet and hard to grip without laying on something. Pictured below is the mask after I used it.

Below is how it looked on my face. Sorry if it looks scary haha. As you can see, the sheet mask is seriously soaked with this milky, lotion-y serum; I even accidentally got some on my hair. 

This is the description on the site:
"Get toned, all over! Your face can get an instant work out when you apply the Kracie Hadabisei CQ10 Facial Sheet Mask. The rejuvenating, firming mask luxuriously conditions your skin.

About the Ingredients
The soft, moist, one piece mask is infused with an intensive essence that quickly penetrates deep into the core of your skin cells. The co-enzyme Q10, combined with soy, promotes youthful, firm skin that is desired and envied by all.

Reserve a few minutes at the end of your busy day to enjoy and allow the soft, waffle sheet filled with its milky essence to grace your face. After 15 minutes, remove the mask and dab in any extra serum remaining on your face or neck. You’ll notice that your facial tone is tighter and completely revived. Repeat the process a few times a week as a part of your beauty routine and remain dedicated to the process to ensure toned and conditioned skin!"

Did it do what it claimed?
  • Firming
    • Yes. My skin felt firmer than before as well as being very hydrated which I feel like goes hand-in-hand. If you are looking for a hydrating mask, I think this will be a good one to try, too.
  • Tightening
    • Yes! I actually noticed the pores on and around my nose being smaller and smoother.
  • Rejuvenating
    • Yes! My skin seems to be less dull and more "awaken." Also, the dry patches I had before is smooth now which makes me really happy. My skin also feels smoother and softer, and I can't stop touching it LOL.
Overall, I definitely recommend this mask! This is the first Japanese brand mask that I have tried and I'm happy with the results. The mask smells pleasant, and there is plenty of serum left in the package that the mask came in. You can probably use the mask more than once if you keep it sealed again. I usually throw it out since I always forget, and I am not a consistent mask-user aha...I mainly use mask when I have a lot of problems with my skin, hoping that the mask will save it.
