went out to see Midnight Special with ili and vanilla today! it was okay! a little slow; the movie generally felt very melancholic for the most part. it also had a super indie feel, but apparently that’s because the director did mostly the indie circuit prior to this. that being said, it was enjoyable – but i kept thinking about this one nic cage movie that had a similar plot LMAO

the movie aside, i’m really pleased with how i look right now. ^0^ you can’t tell under all those layers of instagram filters, but my skin has been super iffy as of late. i had really clogged pores and everything was oily and not a good time; i think it also had to do with hormones since it was shark week recently for me. that being said, some manual extraction and gentle exfoliation later, my skin started clearing up! makeup doesn’t cake on me and my skin isn’t as oily anymore. ^0^ i’m really happy, because i couldn’t wear makeup for over a week. it sucked. but today it’s like!!!! yes good. very good.

instagram

i’m still alive and i also brought my instagram back to life!! for the longest time it was on private, but tbh all i do is post selfies and maybe food posts (+ the occassional wip thing for school or personal projects) so i decided to bring it back!

haircut

valentine’s day is around the corner and today i ended up spending the day with vanilla and ili! we finished watching the last of the star wars series (they saw 4 & 5, then the three of us saw 6, 1 & 2, so today we saw 3) – we also did lunch before that, and dinner after. also, ice cream!! very fun day.

also i got angry at my hair and cut my bangs, so now i have straight bangs for the first time since high school (i finally grew out my straight bangs in like…. 2012). it’s weird to revisit this look lmao

today was basically a Good Time and i can’t wait to hang out with everyone again. happy early valentine’s! ^0^
