Hobby

VogueKnitLiveย 

Wow, a lot of time has passed since my last post! Things have been very busy at work, but my newfound love for knitting has been keeping me sane and so happy. Here’s a picture of my (new) hubby and the scarf I knitted up for him! ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus his new shoes for Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜  
    
Today Ray took me to the NYC VogueKnitLive which is a yarn/knitter’s idea of heaven. Vendors from all over the world gather for this convention and it is a sweet sweet place! My husband made sure to bring his headphones and extra phone batteries. ๐Ÿ‘   

  
So many beautiful soft yarn to choose from!!!! I held on to my husband’s creditcard and did my damage!!!!  
    
    
    
    
 I always wanted to try giant needle knitting! My wish came true!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ 
My beautiful new collection of yarn plus big needles. I also won a free Lee Child audiobook ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜. Some of the yarn were $36 per skein ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ญ but how could I say no?!?! I discovered many new favorite yarn companies today, and it was such an exciting day for me!!! I’m also excited about using my little yarnbowl! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’• 

I need to thank my wonderful husband for not complaining once and following me everywhere and holding all my bags. Plus thank you for not freaking out over the cost of yarn and being so understanding about my passion. I’m not sure I can be as nice as him when it comes to his hobbies….which is Crossfit and working out hahaa ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

I missed the blogging world! โ›„๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

Crossfit and Relaxation

Today I went to R’s Crossfit gym bright and early in the morning. After the WOD (workout of the day), R and I and his friend (pictured below) fooled around with jumproping and I attempted to climb the rope. Did I make it to the top? Definitely not…hahaha Afterwards, we went to get a yummy smoothie (honey, banana, peanut butter, soy milk) and I focused on some knitting. Before going home, R and I went to Barnes and Noble. It’s so sad all the locations in Queens are closing this year. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ So of course I had to buy a couple of things… When I got home I did more shopping damage online for YARN!! It costed an arm and a leg but well worth it!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait and in the meantime I will have to just knit faster! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘

I’ve been working on this blanket for a long long time and I finally finished it! R already used it last night and I’m so happy with the way it turned out! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’ช

Also, I tested out the Phytowash Bubble Peeling product when I went to their store and it looks very interesting to use. Mmmm supposed to get rid of your dead skin-yay!!! Couldn’t resist the lip tint- I enjoy most of Peripera’s lip products so I can’t wait to test it out! ๐Ÿ™‚

First time CF’er and Terminator Marathon

Today was bring your friend day at Ray’s Glendale Crossfit gym. He asked me if I wanted to go and I told him SUREEE! I actually did want to try it out, but I am quite out of shape compared to everyone at his gym. Today’s WOD was named “Jennifer” in honor of 26 year old service woman who died while responding to help a person in need. The workout was 26 minutes of 10 pullups, 15 kettlebell swings, and 20 boxjumps for as many rounds as we can. Honestly just the warmups made my legs feel like jello, but I was able to complete 7 rounds + 4 reps (scales of course since I’m a newbie). It would have been great to go home after that but nooooo R had to drag me to our regular gym…!!! 

   
   Not before we each got some smoothies!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ It was so gooood!

   
 Crazy R doing his crazy workout….that’s 70 lbs between his legs jeez!

   
    
   
Afterwards, went to a Korean restaurant BCD and stuffed myself with two bowls of rice and lot’s of food. Happy and smiley I went home to shower and nap for 3 hours hahaa ๐Ÿ™‚

  
I really can’t remember the last time I bought or made popcorn at home because I actually don’t like popcorn..but the only flavor I will eat is kettlecorn!!! Time for the third Terminator movie now and phones away! R is making us do a Terminator marathon because I haven’t seen any of them…just clips of the second movie…haha I’ll Be Back! Hasta La Vista, Baby. 

  

Skinfood Mini Haul Review

  
Hello Skinfood/K-beauty lovers! I went to the Skinfood store the other day to pick up a gift and of course I just had to walk out with a few things for myself. *BIG SIGH*

First product is the Quinoa Rich Body Milk lotion. Description: A rich body milk with quinoa extract that creates a creamy layer to give dry skin a softer, smoother texture. Quinoa, the Supergrain from the Inca Empire, is enriched with proteins, starch and minerals. 

I love the light scent and it’s a nice big bottle to use. It’s not heavy but definitely helps the dry patches. Love that it’s not sticky oowhooo!! 

Second product is the Lychee Essence Mist in a spray bottle for your hair. Description: A hair serum mist that contains lychee extract, and transforms damaged hair into a silky smooth texture. Shake well before use. Evenly spray an adequate amount on the entire hair. 

Lovely product! I love looking for products for my hair because it’s so dry, frizzy, and damaged. I have a bunch of oils for the hair but I’m lazy when it comes to applying it on my hair because I don’t want my hands to be oily… This product is awesome because I just need to spray spray spray regardless of whether my hair is wet or dry.  My hair is usually in knots and unmanageable, but this product definitely helps my tangles and frizzes!!! Plus it smells nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

Love my new purchases!!

Sprinkly Dinkly Cupcakes

   
 
Howdy do! Somebody made some yummy cupcakes tonight!!! (Not from scratch though…I used to only bake from scratch but it takes so much time!!!) I was pretty exhausted from my city outing, but I did it!!! I’m sad because two of my students will be moving to an ESL class ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I know it’s only October but my kids this year are awesome! They already feel like my kids and I realized I really missed teaching a 12:1:1 class. I promised  the kids I would bake cupcakes (no oven in school boooo) and we would decorate it together. It will be a small goodbye party and it makes me so sad! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

   
 

Crafty Hands

Taking the 6:25am train to the city today for professional development. So weird not to be going to work and I miss my kids already! Also, I’m scared how crazy my room will look tomorrow haha ๐Ÿ™‚   

Last night I had to make some jewelry orders so I got some of my tools out and went to work! ๐Ÿ™‚

   
    

   
I used gold-filled materials most of the time which is great for people with allergies and Swarovski materials which means $$$$$$ hahaa sometimes I wish I could open up a little jewelry/craft store!

  
Now I’m on the train typing up this mini-post and knitting away!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers to a terrific Thursday!!! Today is supposed to be sunny and warm in NYC so I’m looking forward to the nice weather!
