Wishlist for this blog

Posted by esbetsso on October 22, 2009

As you can see so far, this blog isn’t really about anything.  I actually wanted to bake and cook lots for this blog, as well as knit, weave, crochet, and make things with felt.  But you see, I’m broke ._.  I’ve spent so much money (which half I don’t even know where it went ._.) that I need to start saving up before I can write more decent posts.  So I’ve included a wishlist here, just to remind myself what I really need ;_;

  • felt
  • felt glue
  • sewing kit
  • embroidery thread
  • yarn
  • buttons!
  • needles (knitting, crochet, sewing)
  • cardboard (lol)
  • silicon pans
  • food 😀

*sigh* these are the imporants ones. there’s probably more if I think really hard ;_; which I won’t

Italy towel review!

Posted by esbetsso on October 22, 2009

Ladies and ladies, it is here.  The italy towel review!  WHOO-HOO!  😀 ?
Now, there are 2 types of italy towels, a square-ish one,
non-glove, square italy towel

and the glove-type italy towel.

glove-type italy towel

They come in different colours as well – each with for a specific skin (sensitive, normal, dry).  I bought the green ones as they are for normal skin.  I can pretty much say that these are awesome for exfoliating.

Your skin must be properly softened/hydrated with warm/hot water before using this.  I took a 20 minute seasalt bath soak before using this.  After your soak, lightly apply pressure to scrub your body.  Please don’t scrub parts of your body where it’s very sensitive (like your armpits…I was curious)… it hurts ._. lol.  After scrubbing, you should see dark eraser shaving like things on your body and the towel, that’s just your dead skin 😀

I use this for my face as well, so you can too!  It’s actually pretty useful on your face.  When I sometimes wash my face with my soap, my skin sometimes goes a little dry and peels a bit.  When I properly exfoliate before washing my face, it doesn’t go dry anymore cause all the dead skin cells are all gone 😀

Overall, this deserves a 10/10! 10jeom manjeome 10jeom!

You can buy this basically at any Korean supermarket or store, I’m not exactly sure about other Asian supermarkets, but check them out anyways if there aren’t any Korean ones near you.  Or if all else fails, ebay it! 😀 There’s lots online, not to mention I bought my on ebay.

Still sick..ughh

Posted by esbetsso on October 21, 2009

My throat hurts.

My chest hurts when I cough or sneeze.

I get dizzy after standing for too long. Too long as in 5 minutes

I actually haven’t used my laptop since my last blog post, Sunday.  Which is amazing by my standards.  Haven’t been to school either…well technically I did go yesterday, but I felt like shit halfway through period 2 and left.  I’m feeling much better now compared to Monday’s fever, but eh, I wish I could fully recover already.

The only good thing out of this cold/fever is that I grew a little bit.  A centimeter for 2? I think.  🙂 🙂

I used my Italy towel like last week, but never got around to writing a review.  It’ll be up eventually.

Still waiting for Bio-oil order and my ring to arrive.  *sighs*

Sick at Wonderland ):

Posted by esbetsso on October 18, 2009

Jesus christ I’m stupid. I just HAD to wear a shirt to sleep the day before I went to Wonderland, and just HAD to start coughing in the morning, and just HAD to get sick when I got back, ughhh. But at least It was fun 🙂

We left for Wonderland at like 10am. So early @_@. We were really going for the Halloween Haunt…at 7pm, but ehh, guess we’re bad at math? ;P I was so scared of like every single ride I saw, but thank god my friends made me go on almost all of them. Almost. Rollercoaster aren’t that scary anymore, they’re actually really really really fun.  Except for some that go upsidedown.  I don’t like those ones >(

But that wasn’t the exciting part, Jesse’s man (Brandon) came with his friend (Tyler) before the Halloween haunt so we could all be scared shitless, but unfortunatly, I got a stomach ache from all the shit I ate (hotdog, poutine, kitkats, timmy’s sub, donut, etc) and I was SOOO cold at night.  Yet I wore the most out of everyone (hat, scarf, mittens, wool innerwear, sweatpants, boots, 2 layers of socks, tank, hoodie, jacket, another sweater which my friend lent me for 2 hours)  I mean, hell, that’s a lot of layers.

What was really stupid was, it was totally obvious Jesse liked her man, and he liked her back.  They even held hands and hugged and stuff, but they’re not dating.  I need to get Ayesha to scream at Bradon soon ._.

We were suppose to leave around 10-10:30pm, but we waiting in line for 20 minutes for 1 ride, which was fun.  But totally not worth the wait.  Then Ayesha had a hard time calling her parents to pick us up, cause they didn’t pick up their cell at first.  But eventually we found out that her parents were waiting for us ever since 9:45pm.  Wtf. WTFWTFWTF.  wtf.  When we came out close to 11pm.  Oh mann..

My mom was so worried for me, which I really felt bad for.  I first told her that we’d be home after 10pm (which I actually thought we were, but ended up waiting forever for the last ride), when I actually got home at 11:30pm.  I’m glad she finally went to sleep.

(this was yesterday btw)

So today… I woke up feeling like shit and coughing.  I actually had work from 2-10pm, but I called in sick.

My lips..are..red.  and swollen?  Yes..I think.

Got more orders :D :D

Posted by esbetsso on October 16, 2009

I got my Felt-O-Rama sample order a while ago, and just today, I got my Korean italy towels, ear backs and a waist measure-er thingy(this was for free).  Got pics 😉

I can’t wait to try out the italy towels.  I’ll definitly do a review on it after I try it out, which shouldn’t be too long to wait.

Cake was actually good, surprisingly. White chocolate cake recipe.

Posted by esbetsso on October 16, 2009

mmmm.. I’m glad the cake turned out good o:  frosting tasted MUCH better after I refrigerated the cake overnight.  Here’s the recipe since it’s soo good 🙂  Original recipe from: All recipes-White Chocolate Cake

For the cake:

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (I used whole wheat cause I ran out, please don’t do this lol. doesn’t taste as good)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 (1 ounce) squares white chocolate, chopped (I bought this at bulk barn & they weren’t 1 ounce each.  so make sure to weigh them)
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup buttermilk (I just used regular milk)

For the frosting:

  • 6 (1 ounce) squares white chocolate, chopped
  • 2 1/2 tbsp all purpose flour (once again, I used whole wheat.  wasn’t too pretty)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (original recipe called for granulated sugar, but i used powdered)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

1.  Preheat oven to 350 F

2.  In a small saucepan, melt 6 ounces white chocolate WITH the hot water, over low heat. (I know this sounds weird, but this is what you’re suppose to do)  Stir until smooth and allow to cool to room temperature.

3.  In a large bowl, cream 1 cup butter and 1 1/2 cup sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition.  Stir in flour mixture alternating with milk/buttermilk.  Mix in melted white chocolate and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla.

4.  Pour batter into 2 9-inch pans, and bake for 28-32 minutes (or more depending on your oven) until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Original recipe says 30-35 minutes, which you can use.  But for me, 30 was a tiny bit overboard.

Now for the frosting:

1.  In another small saucepan, combine the other 6 ounces of white chocolate, 2 1/2 tbsp flour and 1 cup of milk, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture is thick.  Cool completely.

2.  In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and beat.  Gradually add cooled white chocolate mixture.  Beat at high speed until it is a the consistency of whipped cream, about 4 minutes.

Now you can spread this on your cooled cake 🙂  It’s best to eat this the day after you bake it, since my frosting miraculously tasted awesome the day after o_O  don’t mind the dots on the cake that’s the wheat thingies in the frosting which I didn’t sift out o_o
