Sad Update....

hey guys, 
I have some sad news to share. my father passed away at 11:38am yesterday morning. my mom, auntie, baby cousin, and I were with him and his death happened very peacefully. I mentioned in my last video that he was very ill and that this day was coming soon. 

my dad had a lot of suffering in his life. he fought in the Vietnam War and after that, spent 13yrs in a concentration camp, 3 of which were in solitary confinement. As if that wasn't enough, he suffered a stroke and brain tumor in 2001. he's made several trips to the hospital since then but he always rebounded and came home. for the past 3-4 years though, he was bedridden and required full time care from my mother and I. at least now his suffering has ended and for that, I am thankful. 

I want to thank you guys for your support and understanding this time. I will be back to videos within the next week but as for the next couple days, I'll be busy with family visiting and just grieving in general.

Target Clearances! + OOTD

A 2 in 1 post because I've been very very busy lately. I'll tell you guys about what's going on sometime later. for now, here's some pics I snapped at the Target makeup clearance area! there's actually quite a bit on clearance.

 TONS of nail polishes are on clearance including Sally Hansen, Revlon ColorStay, and Sinful Colors. most of them were in the makeup clearance area (at my store, it's at an end cap about 10 aisles down from the makeup. at another store I go to, the makeup clearance end cap is further away, it just depends)

 there's also a whole container of the Sally Hansen salon effects nail strips. I thought it would be only ugly ones but cute ones were on clearance too, even the ombre glitter ones. they're orignally $9 and were marked down to around $5.50. I'm gonna wait another week and see if they go down even more. Other things they had were the Dial Hello Kitty body wash on clearance (I bought one) and lots of makeup bags.

as for actual makeup, L'oreal has a lot of things on clearance but those things are in their normal places in the makeup aisles.
