This weekend, the husband & I, and whoever might want to tag along, are going to Chinatown in Chicago. To be quite honest, I'm really excited to since I haven't been to a Chinatown ever since I was a little girl. This time, I'll be able to see and buy what I like instead of reluctantly following my mom around in shops that smell of burning incense. One thing for sure is, sesame balls and steamed rice cake seem to only taste really good when you're in Chinatown.
I loved the packaging of the steam rice cakes. It always felt and looked like rich people food. When I lived in MA, there was only one Asian store in my town. We would get so excited when we received candy from my aunts who lived in MN. Now that we live in the Midwest, Asian stores are everywhere and so are the candy we used to wait patiently for every 4th of July.

I'm planning on taking my step-mom too! I'll prob. spoil her with beauty stuff. My dad-- prefers natural girls and so whenever I put makeup on my mom, he gives her a funny look and then she gets embarrassed and washes it off. LOL! Even when my mother was alive, the only time she wore makeup[red lipstick and a dab of it on each cheek for blush!] was when we took pictures.
Since I couldn't please my mother when she was alive [I was only 13], I want to please my loving step-mother.
Anyone of you beauty bloggers live in Chicago that could help show us around? It'll be my husband's first time driving there and so... we don't even know where to start. I hope they will sell BB cream! My momma would love it since she needs that coverage for her cute freckles.
Let me know if you'd prefer to only read beauty related things. I don't know if I'm blogging too much of personal things. Thanks, I will appreciate the feedback.
