Big Dealios of November

(Image source- kdramawallpaper.com)

Drama- Wang's Family aka King's Family! I am a fanatic for Korean dramas :) I've watched all sorts from the oh so dramatic ones, lovey dovey kind, comedy, & family ones. And the kind of drama that I seem to always anticipate & remember are the ones that involve family issues & happiness. Family type of dramas usually consists of 50 episodes or more & seriously the longer the series, the better! You just don't want it to end because it's the kind of family that you became emotionally attached to and rooted for since the beginning. 
Wang's Family is currently on its' 27th episode and comes on both Sats & Suns. (I look forward to my weekends even more because of this!) The Wang Family consists of the parents, grandma, uncle, 4 daughters, & a late late son. They're a modest family with inner struggles from each member, rivalry, success but also failures, marriages that were mistakes, 2nd chances, & finding true love. All of these factors are played out with a combination of hilarity, wit, seriousness, & heart…
If you're interested & you love family dramas like me, you can watch it here with English subtitles!  


Supplies- Pilot Easy Touch pens and...

… Pentel R.S.V.P pens! Both in black~ In elementary school, we would ask our teachers if we could write with a pen & our teachers always responded, "No you cannot". Then in junior high school, writing with a pen for all subjects except math became a requirement. This requirement as a child became the start of my joy for writing everything by hand for the most part with great pens! 
Both Pilot & Pentel are pretty much the only pens I use. I've used pens from Bic & ones from Asian supply stores like Morning Glory but, all of them ended up being a waste of $ and unsatisfactory.  For me, Pilot & Pentel are the best because there aren't any "ink poops"- unintended messy wet ink dots on the paper and their inks are very black & finely thick ;) I love the clean slate, smooth writing for my plans, letters, lists, etc. 

Facial exfoliator- Burt's Bees Peach & Willow Bark deep pore scrub! The famous St.Ives apricot scrub is still exceptional but I wanted to find a substitution for it so that I can have more products in my carousel of exfoliators. This one from Burt's Bees is the very next substitution for it. Compared to the St.Ives one, the scent is okay & it's a tad tougher in texture but, it certainly does the job in getting my skin extra clean & smooth.   

Well worth it for scrubbing off unnecessary dirt & dry skin off my face once every week~

Drink- For some of us when fall comes & the temperatures start dropping, we instantly want all the hot drinks that have pumpkin spice in it. But for me, I get the most excited for hot chocolate, hot chocolate from the supermarkets that I can drink whenever I want at home all cozied up. This whole month of November, I've been on a craze for Archer Farms Malted Milk Chocolate hot cocoa mix! The not too heavy chocolatey taste + reminiscent cereal taste from childhood = I gotta have it everyday.  

Make it even more delicious & special with whipped cream on top

CAREFUL, contents may be addicting!

Shoes- My "Parlei" booties from Lucky Brand! Perfect for that extra boost from being too casual & stomping all over town.

No need to worry about pain for a good amount of hours

Candle- Pumpkin Apple candle from Bath & Body Works! A pleasant addition to my love for the cold seasons~ It smells like you're drinking apple cider in a pumpkin patch or you're drinking pumpkin spice latte at an apple orchard, either way!








Ready for Christmas?? Oh yeahhhh xD

  1. haha there are so many things I love about this post! First off, I love writing in pen too! When we were forbidden to write with pens when we were small, it became so desirable to do so! And I love Pentel! I have a bunch of their products, including cool pencil crayons that were the envy of all of my non-Asian friends haha. Also, I love that Burt's Bees exfoliating scrub! I use it almost every night in the shower haha. The whipped cream of that Malted Hot Chocolate looks soo luxurious and delectable! Those boots are amazing, so perfectly functional yet stylish! And lastly, that candle looks great! I love my Bath & Body Works pumpkin cupcake candle but I must try out that flavour too!

  3. To be honest, dear Hanna Lee, I´m not really ready for Christmas, at least we have now a decorated house :) Your boots are so cool! To be honest I never heard about the series which you introduce here, but I think this is caused on the fact that I normally don´t watch TV and films, what surely sometimes is a mistake :)

    Wish you a happy new week!

  4. Ooh I love writing with pens - My favorite pens are the Pilot G2 retractable pens - writing with that on a moleskine notebook is the best!

  5. I love that style of boots, and I'm glad that yours are comfortable (all too often, I've been disappointed by how painful some heeled boots can be). Also, I used to love dramas; I especially love the parody ones on youtube from Ryan Higa and MadTv.

    1. Thank u~ Same here, I hate it when u think certain boots might be comfortable but end up not & u hardly wear them out, they become a waste =/ I used to watch MadTv, so hilarious & watch Ryan Higa from time to time as well!

  6. i wonder if i would find that show funny, like if i would get the humour?
    i gotta say i'm against the apricot scrubs of any kind. they are way too harsh and can tear the skin, but if it works for you, then use it!
    ooh that makes me want hot cocoa right now!! i love the mug.

    1. Family dramas are fun to watch but it's also so sad at times as the story progresses so if u're more into light & funny series, this might be an iffy. Yeah, I've heard ppl complaining abt how harsh St.Ives scrub can be but, I think it's ok if u use it only once a wk when needed!
