self concept // self esteem

Good morning, pals. 
Joana is cramming ! Again and again.

I had to wake up early today because I haven't answered a single question in our Personhood Exam , and yes, there is such a subject in our curriculum. Honestly, the exam was due yesterday but since classes were suspended (thank goodness) our next meeting would be next Wednesday.

I just wanted to get it through already because I'm planning to go out with my lovely girls this Saturday. Amidst all of the pressure given by my thesis mates (sorry girls, I'll just work on wee hours till my undereye circles cover my whole cheeks).

So back to the exam topic. It's about self-concept and self-esteem. Asking questions whether I always see the negative in me or if I'm soooooo good I always see the wrong in others. Can you guess where little joana fits? 

Actually, there's a lot of questions here that can be good blog posts. Yay! Supplements for lazy blogging times :3.

As of now, let's stop at this question. Because it's so self-realization~ish.
 P.S. Yay for plenty colorful smilies!

eb retractable brush x sunglasses

Good evening lovelies! 

As I said in my post earlier today, I'll share my thoughts about my buys.
First up, the sunglasses. I really don't know what brand it is. I saw Kinetix on my receipt but I don't know if its a brand name. Oh well.

At first I was opting for a more beach-friendly pair of shades (in July, yeah) and I was actually able to find a good pair but then I saw this. My ladies told me that I looked more mature in this pair than the other one. And since, I rarely look mature, I chose this!

 The next item is...

The Ever Bilena Retractable Brush. I wanted a retractable brush because I don't want to use sponge for face powder and this was the only available brush I can find aside from Marionnaud. My Marionnaud brushes took a while when I washed them and I don't want that for an everyday brush; me hates waiting. 

Unfortunately. This brush sheds. Right after I opened it, a couple of strands fell out. And to my dismay, the side strands close to the tube are all messed up. Is that to be expected in every retractable brush? Well, that's for getting a cheap one, little joana. But it's soft.

Yeah. It is soft. For me. I hope the strands fix themselves when I wash them xD.

Mini Haul { july 24 }

Last Sunday, I forced my mates to go to the mall with me.

I have other stuff to check but they were already rushing home. 
I think I'll share my thoughts on these products soon. Hope they don't disappoint me.
