When I was searching for a cat, I became smitten with a particular breed called Ragdolls. I eventually adopted a kitten (Cloud, my first kitty!) from Texas Renaissance Ragdolls, a cattery in South Texas. I found this breeder through their website, which was quite outdated, so I offered to design ...

Song of the Day: That's Not My Name by The Ting Tings

Song of the Day: That’s Not My Name by The Ting Tings

Love the beats in this song! I had some trouble trying to figure out what she was saying at first, though. I blame the accent! I remember hearing this in an American Eagle store or something? My brother wouldn’t stop singing it for a while after that.
Song of the Day: Wine Red by The Hush Sound

Song of the Day: Wine Red by The Hush Sound

Saw this band live at a Panic! At The Disco concert. They were awesome! Got all their autographs on a CD too. Lucky me. I’m more fond of their fast songs, like this one. Wine Red makes a pretty bold statement, but it’s oh-so-enjoyable. Another amazing song to check out is Don’t Wake Me Up ...

Song of the Day: Butterfly by G-Dragon

Song of the Day: Butterfly by G-Dragon

Such a light, lovely song! The MV is a little trippy, but it’s really imaginative and cute. Totally unexpected from G-Dragon, but to be honest, I like this song way more than his other hit singles like Heartbreaker and Breathe. Hmmm, Asians with blonde hair? I’ve always been curious to try it out, but I ...
Song of the Day: Break Up by Mario ft. Gucci Mane & Sean Garrett

Song of the Day: Break Up by Mario ft. Gucci Mane & Sean Garrett

Gah, another song with a Gucci feature. I’m not doing this on purpose, I promise. I think Mario’s pretty cute. Where has he been, anyway? Seems like it’s been a while since he released a new single.
Black Friday Haul, Part II: Pretty&Cute and Missha

Black Friday Haul, Part II: Pretty&Cute and Missha

Finally! Seems a little late to still be talking about Black Friday, but my orders just came in. Totally not my fault. First up is Pretty&Cute, a company that specializes in Korean and Japanese beauty products. They had a killer sale that weekend, and I was totally stoked about placing my order. I heard great ...
Song of the Day: Invincible by OK Go

Song of the Day: Invincible by OK Go

Remember the crazy band that did an amazing sing-and-dance routine on treadmills? That’s OK Go. This song was on the same album (Oh No) as the aforementioned MV track. I really enjoyed the whole album. I don’t think their latest release, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky, was just as good though.
Song of the Day: Digital Bounce by SE7EN ft. T.O.P. (BIGBANG)

Song of the Day: Digital Bounce by SE7EN ft. T.O.P. (BIGBANG)

I had the BIGGEST crush on SE7EN when he had his debut. I even called him my hubby, haha! He’s my handsome K-pop crooner! I was so excited when he announced his return to the Korean music scene! This song is part of his comeback, and it’s heavy on the electropop side. Totally catchy, plus, ...
Song of the Day: Hate to Say I Told You So by The Hives

Song of the Day: Hate to Say I Told You So by The Hives

The Hives is such a kick-ass band! Their punk rock music is just plain awesome. First heard them when they opened for Maroon 5 a few years back. I was immediately smitten — they are amazing live! I’d love to see them in concert again.
Woo hoo!  Stuff in the mail!

Woo hoo! Stuff in the mail!

With more on the way, haha. I live in an apartment, so packages are usually left in the front office. I pick up stuff there so often that the receptionist doesn’t even need to ask for my apartment number anymore. E-shopaholic, indeed. So yes, a package today! I wonder what’s inside? … lol, who I ...
Song of the Day: Obsessed (Remix) by Mariah Carey ft. Gucci Mane

Song of the Day: Obsessed (Remix) by Mariah Carey ft. Gucci Mane

First off, I don’t like how this song is an obvious dis to Eminem. All that aside, the single itself is really catchy. I’ve always been an admirer of Mariah’s powerful vocals, and it amazes me how she can continue to pump out hits every year, from timeless classics to hip, modern beats. Oh, and ...
