Long live my blog
Set up 1 cup of soup stock of your choice. Boil.
Add one bowl of cooked white rice.
Turn the heat down to medium.
Boil and stir often until the liquid turns into -- excuse the expression, haha -- slime, and the rice has mainly dissolved into pap.
Add an egg. Stir. Let it sit for a few seconds.
Add a topping of your choice. I used doljaban muchim, seasoned seaweed.
Serve hot and enjoy!
Of course, the right top coat is a must.
A good base coat is very helpful, too. And yes, top and base coat do differ in important aspects!
essie top coats don't work all that well on most OPI polishes is what I experienced
Remember to go to the toilet before painting your nails.
Also, paint your nails after washing your hair! Hot water and the head massage that, fyi, you perform with your fingertips after all won't be nice to your fresh manicure.
Your manicure will hold up better on healthy nails. If they're not, change your nail polish remover. Fast!
Don't shake your nail polish bottle, your manicure might get bubbles!
Paint your nails with sufficiently lighting provided.
lacquerized has some tremendously good guides on how to paint your nails (my technique is pretty similar) and easily clean up after painting.
You have started feeling uncomfortable in it, no matter if it's the size or the style you are growing out of. For me, for example, that's anything that's sleeveless. No more bearing arms!
You cannot remember one occasion on which you have worn it in 2011. It might come back in style, alright, but by then, you will probably also want to buy it new.
Mix and matching it with the rest of your clothes and bringing it into accordance with your own style is giving you a headache. Such items get in the way too much, especially in the mornings when dressing is also about efficiency.
It's not ideal, maybe because the fit is a little off or because of some detail you don't like. Of course, that's not yet reason enough to toss it, but if it's something you can easily replace by something better out there, go ahead and do it.
For make up, please be aware that cosmetic articles have only limited shelf-life. That is especially important for mascara and lipstick/lipgloss, but also foundations, etc. General rule is, if color, smell or texture have changed, it's time to get rid of it. Also, if you can't remember any more when you bought it, it's probably old enough to be tossed, too.
Use up your tubes, pots and bottles in your beauty and make up stack, or at least try to use up five of your products in 2012.
Compile a list of five books you've always wanted to read and read them over the course of 2012.
Make a list for your next shopping spree and stick to it.
Find the part of your body you especially like and find ways to dress it to its best advantage! Flaunt it!
Think about and prepare birthday presents for your most loved ones way in advance and make it something special by complementing it with things you made yourself.
Put 1 cup of water, and a small can of canned tuna in a pot and cook on medium heat.
Add 1/4 ts gochujang (Korean red pepper paste), 2 ts gochugaru (Korean red pepper pouder), and 2 ts soy sauce. Stir.
Add half an onion, sliced, and one 200gr pack of soft (!) tofu.
(This is optional, but you can beat an egg into the broth, but don't stir it, just let it boil a little as if you poached it.)
Top it off with some cut Korean leeks, or chopped spring onions, and sliced green pepper.
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of wheat flour
- half a tablespoon gochujang
- and an assortment of your choice of any of the following: kimchi, spring onions, Korean leeks, seafood, chopped up oysters, cheese, shredded carrots or zucchini, etc. etc., and
- one tablespoon soy sauce.
Bake out spoonfuls of the mix in hot oil in a pan.
Eat with a dip made of 2 ts soy sauce, half a ts vinegar, half a ts of gochugaru, one ts sesame oil, and chopped spring onions.
