I received a Mac gift card for my birthday last year, I’m actually quite shocked I held out this long. I was actually waiting for Mac to put out something that really caught my eye and spoke to me until I obsessed and dreamed about it. Oh the mind of a makeup addict! And I missed out on the Punk Couture collection(I’m glad I did because I have enough dark lipsticks).

Sigh… I really like this lipstick although I’m sure it can be easily duped. This…

It’s favorites time again! Also this month I’ve been pretty boring, when it comes to makeup – hot weather and lazyness did their job.
Il primo preferito è questo blush arancione dal 10 color blush palette di BH cosmetics. Mi piace perché è allegro e divertente come colore, è estate in blush! ^_^
The first favorite is this orange blush from the BH cosmetics 10 color blush palette. I like this color, cause it’s fun and joyful, it’s summer in a blush! ^_^
Il prossimo preferito non me l’aspettavo – KIKO Ultimate Pen eyeliner. Sto cercando di finirlo, quindi dopo un bel po’ ho ripreso ad usarlo e l’ho riscoperto. È davvero utile, quando dei di fretta perché è facilissimo da usare. In questo mese…

Xu Qing 29-year-old, from Beijing, moved back to parents’ house after dropping out of university,after insisting he did not get on with his roommates.
He refused to get a job and spends all his time online
He met a girl online,also jobless, who eventually moved in with him. His parents fed up with his attitude and behavior asked Xu Qing and his “girlfriend” to either get a job or move out.
His father Ku arranged for him to have a job at a friend’s company, he walked out announcing that it was too boring.
When he refused to get a job and didn’t move out,his parents applied in court to get him to move out.
They court ruled in favour of the parents that although Qing was their son, at the age of 29 they had no more obligation to support him and that as it was their house they could also force him to move out.
When he and his girlfriend refused to follow the court’s 60 day deadline, the couple applied for an eviction notice to have bailiffs remove their son, his girlfriend and their property.
Honestly I think its unfortunate and such a shame that the parents are stuck with a son like this.
—-These are some of the comments by Internet users in China.
‘Having this kind of son is really pathetic. Just keep it in mind: Don’t spoil kids,’ one user said.
Another commented: ‘It’s just a mirror of today’s education.’
‘The parents have brought up such a spoiled prince,’ one web user added.
‘They actually asked for it!’
