Asian dramas you should watch now!! *Part 2*

Hello sunshines,
for this weeks ''Korean dramas you should watch now!! *echo*'' I will be reviewing the dramas ''Flower Boy Next Door'', ''Flower Boy Ramyun Shop'' and . It seems as though my choice of dramas this week fell into the category of flowers. Ohh well... :)

1) Flower Boy Next Door
I enjoyed this series quite a bit. The story lines was really nice (as well as Yoon Shi-Yoon :D ). However I did find that it dragged on a bit for the last 5-6 episodes. Roughly the same thing was happening so I got a bit bored of it but, I am happy that I did finish it cause now that I think about it, it was a really good series. When watching a series or movie I pay more attention to the ending rather than the whole plot. And the ending was incredible. The story is about a modern day Rapunzel that locks herself in her room due to a childhood trauma she doesn't want to see the world. But suddenly a guy walks into her life and she starts seeing the world and goes out. The actress for the role is Park Shin-Hye. Even though I was disappointed with the character in ''You're beautiful'', I liked this one. It's probably the fact that you understand why her personality is like that rather than just the whole cute-tsy innocent act of Go Mi Nam in You're Beautiful. None the less, I really liked this drama so I give it a 4.5/5. The 0.5 is because I found that the scenario was dragging at a point. Over all, great drama and I highly recommend it.

2) Flower Boy Ramyun Shop
<3<3. That is pretty much all I have to say. I'm pretty sure this is the first drama where the woman isn't a complete an utter incompetent person. I knew from the first episode that I would love this show. And the ending was brilliant. The story is about a woman in her mid-20's, she is studying to become a teacher and starts liking this guy who she thinks is 30 years old but turns out to be 19. When she realizes that he is her student from Korea's biggest firms she doesn't know what to do. Like almost all Korean Dramas there is a love triangle in this one as well. I like how they used songs from different dramas also such as secret garden.  Very good drama, extremely funny 5/5.

This week I'm only reviewing 2 series. I watched Hanazakiri no kimitachi e again, but I decided to do a comparison to the 3 different versions of it, I will probably blog about them next week. Until then,

Korean dramas you should watch now!! *Part 1*

Hello sunshine's,
 How are you all doing?  Now apart from being really into the whole Japanese/ Korean fashion scene, I also love their music, anime's(manga's) and Korean/Japanese dramas. For today I'll be sticking to Korean Dramas you have to watch now!!
 I'm not really into the whole ''historical drama craze'' that has been happening recently. I'm more fond of comedies and maybe horror dramas. I joke, I hate horror movies, I can never sleep after. I know what you're all thinking ''wuss'' but don't judge me! They are made to scare the living Jesus out of you!! Continuing... the dramas that I chose are my taste, just keep in mind that not everyone will like them, so keep and open mind.Oh, and these aren't in order of my favorite.

1) Reply 1997
This drama is probably one of my favorites of all time! I started watching it a while back but only got up till episode 5 and stopped cause I was busy with school. Now that I have nothing to do I started watching it again and stayed up till 4:30 in the morning to finish off the episodes.(I have no life.) The plot and story line is very different compare to most Asian dramas where straight away you know who is going to end up with who. Up until the last episode you have no idea who Shi Won is going to end up with. Through out the whole time you keep realizing new things that just blow your mind. I don't want to explain too much so I'll just go over the plot briefly. The story takes place in 2012 where the group of now adults are meeting up and 2 of them announce their engagement. Then they all start to remember their childhood (around 18 years old) that takes place in 1997. Awesome series. Very addictive 5/5.

2)Shut Up!Flower Boy Band
I will start off by saying that if Eye Candy was a real group I would be a huge fan! I loved this series to bits. I couldn't stop watching it! I don't really think there was something that I didn't like. But if I had to say something it would be that they would not say what they were doing in order to help the people around them that they cared about. I get that, I would probably do the same for a friend, but it annoyed me that the things that they hid from each other were so important.  But, I will forgive them since it did give the plot more meaning. The story has to do with a group of Teen-age boys in a band. They change schools because their one is closing down. The leader of the group falls for this girl from their new school but has trouble with the schools band Strawberry Field. He then goes out at night to meet with one of the guys and ends up being beaten up. As his friends find him he tries to cross the street to meet them and gets hit by a bus and dies. His friends then have a goal to become famous and share his music with the world. I won't say anything else so that you can have a bit of action ;) Absolutely fantastic drama 5/5!

3)You're Beautiful
I really liked this drama. It was funny,sad,musical-y(is that even a word?) basically everything I love put together. I really enjoyed watching it and finished it off in 2 days. I didn't like one thing though. I think it must be a general rule for Korean Dramas for all females to give off the weak damsel in distress but it really pisses me off! I found that the character of Go Mi Nyu/Mi Nam to be extremely weak. I guess they were going for the completely pure aspect of the character since she was meant to be a nun, but still. At times when she was getting yelled at for something that wasn't her fault, or something she did without realizing it she would simply say ''I'm sorry''. What the fuck?! When someone blames me for something that I'm not at fault I go Miss Prosecutor on their ass, but noooo! She just stood there and took it! I could probably write a whole article on why the character of the lead female role pissed me off, but moving on. Again, I will briefly explain the plot. Go Mi Nyu is the twin sister on Go Mi Nam a guy who wants to become a member of the group A.N.Jell. Her brother has to leave for the states for surgery and she transforms into a guy in order for him to become a member of the group until he returns. The story goes around how she manages to avoid being found out, but does she succeed? Very nice drama, I would give 5/5 ,the female character annoys me so much that I would give 4/5, but I give the point back because the ending was amazing, so 5/5 ^^

Part 2 will be out next week ^^
This was a brief blog about the dramas I've been watching. Maybe I should make this a regular thing on my blog? When I'm done with the dramas I will probably start writing about animes, maybe... Let me know if you want me to review a drama that you enjoyed watching. Until next time,

Dariya Palty Beauty Mauve Review~

Hello marshmallows,
the other day I dyed my hair with dariya palty beauty mauve. So unlike the other times when I dye my hair, I finally filmed myself! In the video I might look a bit weird but please don't judge me! It's my first video so I was a bit camera shy *blushes*. So without further ado, the video.

I congratulate you if you watched until the end :D

Now for the judging!

Color: 5/5. I really like the color. My hair was bleached blonde so it came out more purple than it said on the package, which is fine with me.
PAIN LEVEL!: 4.5/5. To explain. Most Japanese dyes contain bleach(or whatever the thing that bleach contains that burns your scalp like a moth-) so it does burn or hurt a bit. But not as bad as regular bleach. 
Damage: 5/5, my hair feels pretty soft after dying it, as I usually say when I dye my hair with palty hair dyes. No complaints as of yet
Product Content: 3/5. This is my biggest problem with the palty hair dyes. Whenever I use the dyes I always find that it doesn't cover my whole head. When my hair use to be longer and was layered for some reason I had dye left over*ponders*. But since I cut it short it doesn't. Maybe my hair got thicker? Dunno... So I have to purchase another bottle to re-do my whole head, if I don't decide to change the color(again)

This is my biggest problem though with beauty mauve. I've been searching for it for the past 2 maybe 3 years and this is the first time I have found it. And already it is out of stock! Here is the link for the store where I purchase all of my dyes in case you are interested:(Terryyuen72 store Ebay)

Here's a before and after picture:

*I had no idea how to pose....*

That's all I have for now, I will try and update as soon as possible.
P.s. On the 5th of August I will be going to Oman to visit my dad and then to Dubai for a few days, I might do a Haul of things I buy, if you guys want? Let me know ^^

How to make your circle lenses look different??

Hello everyone,
Sorry for the lack of update, as per usual I've been busy^^'' and apart from that, I haven't really had anything  to blog about. But, while I was getting ready yesterday I accidentally put my lenses on the other way around. And you know what? They looked so nice. Usually when you buy colored circle lens, the black ring around it might be too dark and the color won't show too well, especially if your eye color is really dark. But this way, the color shows up surprisingly really well.

*Left side other way round* *Right side, right way round*

As you can see from the above pictures, the color seems a lot more vibrant, and it still enlarges your eyes.
Sorry for this post being really short. I promise I will update as soon as I have some things to share,
