26.4.17// super busy and tiring day. I had seminars from 10 a.m and the german course in the afternoon until 8 p.m. I had my lunch break in this a nice coffee shop run by students, at Freie Universität, Sportler Café. I love the cozy atmosphere, the homemade coffee and cookies, and the comfy couch. Here I read about 30 pages of Berlin Alexanderplatz and I´m almost at the end of Döblin´s second book.
I can’t wait until we get to explore together. I can’t wait to adventure off and see sights I’ve never seen and have you by my side. I can’t wait to find our favourite coffee shop and favourite study spot and it will be so perfect because you are my favourite person.
I finally updated my skin care! For anyone who’s interested in how I prep my skin.
First thing you need to know is my skin type, I’m prone to acne and I have mostly normal to oily skin. I get breakouts on my forehead, my nose, cheeks and my chin. All these breakouts, I hide with concealer, blemish creams and foundation.
To treat my skin and lessen breakouts, here are my favorite skin care products from different Korean brands.
1. Etude House AC Clinic White-Trouble Bubble Cleanser
First thing you need to do is wash your face. For oily skin, I recommend that you choose water based or gel based cleanser. Try to look for products that are mild and won’t irritate your sensitive skin so much.
What I’m loving these days are foam cleansers. They’re already in foam state which means, you no longer have to foam it on your face, hence, less stress on your skin.
Plus, it doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry and stretchy. It gives a feeling of fresh and dewy skin.
1.Wet your face with warm water to open up pores.
2.Wash your face with cleanser for 2 minutes.
3.Rinse it with cold water for 4 minutes.
4. Pat dry with towel/cotton shirt or you can pat dry your face with fingers and let the water be absorbed by skin.
2. Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner
Wonder Pore Freshner is my holy grail for toners. This is because it is still one of the best selling toners among Koreans.
First time I used it, it reduced my breakouts and the appearance of blackheads. It is quite pricey but, I assure you it’s all worth it.
1. Apply small amount of toner to cotton.
2. Move cotton in circular motions paying special attention to chin, nose and cheeks (or where you are prone to whiteheads and pimples).
3. Spray it on your face when you need a refreshing.
3. Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel
Aloe Vera Gel are new releases from your favorite Korean brand. I love this one from Nature Republic because it smells so good and it’s the cheapest among the brands.
I use this as a moisturizer and sort of a spot on gel to my pimples. It lessens the redness of my skin and calms it.
You can also use it for your hair and body!
4. Etude House Eye’s Cream
I use it mainly for my under eyes when I feel like my eyes are tired and before going to sleep. It’s a roll-on and its small so it’s very handy to bring.
5. Etude House AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Water and Pink Powder Spot
I swear by these two products to remove my pimples. I use the water during the day and the powder spot before I go to sleep.
It dries us your pimples and lightens the spots. Its non-comedogenic meaning, you won’t get breakouts from your other breakouts. Like have you ever experienced a pimple growing beside your existing pimple because you irritated it? That won’t happen because it does not only heals pimples, it prevents them from spreading.
Well I’m happy it works on me. :)
6. Nature Republic Charcoal Mask
I use this once or twice a week, when I feel like I have so much gunk on face even after washing. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean.
This is the perfect mask if you are prone to whiteheads and blackheads or if you want your pores to tighten.
7. Face masks, patches and strips
And last but not the least, you need weekly or even daily pampering by using face masks. You can also try patches for your specific problems. Like if you have puffy eyes, use eye patches. If you have blackheads, you can use pore strips.
And that’s it! That sums up my skin care routine. I hope you learned something from this! And if you could recommend more Korean skin care products, I would love to hear about it!
I will be posting my Korean Make Up haul next. Stay posted! :)
Summary:One of the many times Haise visits Touka in :re, and his last. Based on Mutsuki’s flashbacks from chapter 114. One-shot.
Rating: K+, fluff | Words: 4,362k | Read on AO3-If you like it, please reblog! ♥
A/N: I missed writing tousaki so much *cries* I’m happy with the result even if it’s not extremely relevant. This would be what Mutsuki sees in his flashback, that everyone was wondering if he just followed Kaneki or something. This could also be the last time Haise sees Touka? I’m not sure, you can decide that for yourselves. If you liked this weird thing, feedback is always appreciated! <3 enjoy.
She takes his breath away; just having her near him is enough to make his heart flutter.
“Hi,” she says, smiling softly, greeting him with the most beautiful presence. Her eyes look kindly surprised to see him there.
She’s wearing a pigtail at the back of her head, soft stray strands of hair falling on each side of her face, one lock touching her right eye, stroking her eyelashes. She looks prettier than the last time he saw her, and seeing her with a new hairstyle is surprisingly refreshing.
Don’t say anything about her hair, don’t be an idiot, don’t s—
“Y-Your hair looks cute,” that’s the first thing he says.
Job interviews are actually the bane of your existence. How does
answering a series of predictable questions show your work ethic and prove to
the potential employer that you are the best person for the job?
And why the hell did you insist on being interviewed for
this job, honestly! Are you insane? Have
you actually gone off the deep end?!
Your potential new boss Peggy looked at you with a smile on
her face, it was a look that scared you and comforted you at the same time.
With an exhale, you continued on with the interview. From what Peggy had
explained about the position was that this class is the outcome of an influx of
new students and no space in other classrooms. Basically you had a whole new
class to teach if you accepted the position. And the pay was about double what
you are making now.
Your heart was definitely torn. This was the kind of
position that you have dreamed of, not many out of college students get the
opportunity to have; let alone be offered a full time position this soon. And
if you take the position, all you have to do make arrangements with the school
you are at and then you can start Monday.
With a smile you shake hands with Peggy and make your leave.
Your decision had been made. Now it was time to let everyone know.
So this is a total au bughead story, but I hope you guys like it none the less.
She was lost all the time, she didn’t know where she was going or where she would end up.
Her parents had passed away when she was eleven years old, it had been for the best, they were horrible people. Abusive, Angry , bitter human beings, their death was a welcome escape for Betty.
Being tossed around foster home , to foster home wasn’t any better, but eventually when she turned thirteen, she saw a chance and she took it.
The family she was staying with were crackheads, they used the money they got for fostering children to feed their addiction, one day she slipped out the front door and never looked back.
The adventures she went on were incomparable. She’d seen so much in her young life, she was aged beyond her years.
Being small had always been a gift. She could sneak into small places, if she wanted to board an airplane, she would just pretend to be part of some rich , snotty family and walk right onto the plane. Finding a place to stay was never really a problem either, she was very good at hiding, until the lights went out and the doors locked.
But, she wasn’t so small anymore, sixteen had really taken its toll on her and sneaking in with a family wasn’t an option. She couldn’t hide under booths at restaurants and she most definitely couldn’t fit behind shelves at malls.
So that’s what brought her here.
“Riverdale, the town with pep.”
She laughed out loud at the silly sign, in the middle of the road, adjusting her backpack on her shoulder.
She was looking for a small town, one with no breaking news stories or pimps trying to steal her and sell her on the streets.
Riverdale seemed like the perfect place.
She had a bit of money saved up from the odd jobs she had taken in New York, but apparently this town didn’t have a hotel or even a bed and breakfast. But, she read they had trailers for sale. She wouldn’t mind shacking up in a trailer home for a while.
She needed a job, and fast.
Walking the streets, she spotted dress shops and bakeries, offices and flower shops. When finally she stood directly in front of the one place she knew she could work.
Betty had been a waitress, more times than you can count. It was an easy job and if she could make an extra few bucks in tips, she would be golden.
Walking in, her backpack heavy on her back, she spotted the older man, a silly hat on his head and a rag in his hand. That must be pops.
She walked over to him slowly, he was really into his cleaning and she didn’t want to scare him.
“Excuse me, sir?” She said softly
Pops whipped around, apparently she wasn’t quiet enough.
“Oh! Girl you scared me! Shouldn’t you be at school! Ain’t never seen a young'n your age here at this time.”
She smiled, her dimples popping out at his surprise.
“No sir, I don’t go to school, I’m actually here to ask you for a job.”
The older man looked at her quizzically
“How did you know my only lunchtime server just quit on me yesterday?”
Her smile grew even wider
“I have lots of experience, I can give you all of my old bosses numbers, I know how to handle a table and I’m great at cleaning up.”
Pops laughed placing his hand over hers.
“You don’t have to tell me twice, you’re like some kind of angel in disguise, come on then darlin’ let’s go see if Amy’s old uniform, will fit ya. Although I’ve gotta say, we might need to fatten you up a little, you’re far too skinny.”
Walking out of pops , her new yellow uniform dress in hand, she felt lighter than she had all week.
Pop had agreed to let her work every morning and afternoon except the weekends, and if he needed her at night time she was always available.
The pay was decent and she knew she could afford a trailer home in no time.
Suddenly the streets were crowded, school had just let out and kids with their backpacks and heavy text books were rushing past her.
She missed school.
She had always loved it, and she was damn good at it, every year she would come home with a bumper sticker proudly stating “my child is an honor roll student.” The bumper sticker always ended in the trash, side by side with her report cards.
Her parents had taken her out of school when she was nine, they couldn’t afford the private school anymore and they didn’t want to risk anyone finding out their daughter went to public, so they just pulled her out.
Suddenly she was on the ground, her face nearly hitting concrete, before a hand reached out to stop it.
That’s what she gets for daydreaming.
“Shit I’m sorry, here let me help you up.”
She looked up at the voice only to come face to face with the brightest pair of blue eyes she’d ever seen , That and the weirdest hat she’d ever seen on top of a mess of black waves.
He seemed taken aback by her as well because he dropped his hand and tilted his head
She brushed her pants off and heaved herself off the ground.
“My fault, I wasn’t paying attention” she picked up Her uniform and smiled “Betty Cooper” she stuck her hand out, he was still just staring at her and she had to stifle a giggle.
Suddenly another voice entered her ears
“Jesus jughead, pick your mouth up off the ground, you just nearly knocked this girl out, the least you can say is your name.”
Suddenly her outstretched hand was being shaken by the most beautiful girl she’d ever seen, she was put together , from her jet black hair to her shiny white pearls.
“Veronica lodge, I’m sorry about my speechless friend here, he’s a little” she fake whisper “socially inept.”
Betty giggled pulling her hand back,
“That’s okay, we did just head butt each other, I’m sure neither of us are thinking straight.”
She glanced over at the blushing boy who shrugged apologetically, finally moving his gaze from her.
Suddenly she was surrounded.
A perfectly coiffed teenage boy had his fingers on her ripped Ramones t shirt and was fiddling with the hole on the bottom of it
“This is so cute, so vintage, Obsessed. I’m Kevin by the way.”
She smiled at hisvsilly antics
“Dude get your hands off her, she’s not a doll.” A charmingly cute redhead scratched the back of his neck smiling shyly “ I’m Archie Andrews it’s nice to meet you.”
“It’s nice to meet you too Archie.” She said sweetly, causing the redhead to blush.
Suddenly another redhead was directly in her face
“We saved the best introduction for last, I’m Cheryl blossom. Pretty much queen bee of Riverdale high,” she glanced down at Betty raising an eyebrow. “Your look is… interesting, I’ve been trying to get into the grunge look, but I doubt I would be able to pull it of like you do.”
Betty blushed before shaking Cheryl’s hand
“Thankyou, it’s nice to meet all of you.”
“Why don’t you come with us to pops, I know how sucky it can be to be the new girl. I promise it’ll be fun.” She said wiggling her eyebrows
“Thank you guys so much for the offer, but there’s a few things I have to do, raincheck?”
Veronica nodded happily handing her phone number as everyone else followed.
Betty thanked the lord she had purchased herself a cell phone right before she left her last home.
As everyone walked away, with promises to text each other that night, jughead lingered behind
“Jughead jones, that’s my name, sorry I didn’t get a chance to introduce myself” he mumbled kicking a rock with his combat boot.
“Im suprised anyone gets a chance to talk with that group, you said your name was jughead? I’ve gotta say i always thought Betty was bad.”
Jughead looked up smiling, his eyes locking with Betty’s
“It’s a nickname, would you believe me if I told you my real name is worse?”
She playfully narrowed her eyes
He leaned super close to her, and whispered in her ear
“Forsythe Pendleton jones….. the third.”
Betty couldn’t help the giggles that escaped, she placed her hand over her mouth trying to mask her laughter.
Jughead stared at her smiling, his eyes sparkling.
Betty finally calmed down enough to speak
“It’s … it’s not so bad.”
Jughead let out a full belly laugh
Suddenly Archie called for him
“Yo! Jug we gotta go, milkshakes don’t wait for anyone.”
“I’ll see you around, Jughead”
He smiled at her as she turned to walk away
“See ya, bets.”
Turning around to smile at the nickname, she found he was already half way down the street.
So to keep everyone happy I’ll make it on the cusp of romantic and platonic.
S.Coups/Seungcheol He got a call from you and it sounded like you were distressed so he met up with you at a cafe. When you tell him about your family and how the arguments are stressing you out, he pulls you into a hug. “You’ve been going through a lot huh? It’s okay to let it out with me,I’m here for you. Don’t bottle it up, or it’ll hurt even more.”
Jeonghan He got a text from you that only read, ‘it happened again’ and he immediately sent you a location to meet up with him and to let you talk about the most recent argument that took place at your house. He rubbed your back as you began to cry recalling the yelling and hurtful words. “You’ve been really strong. I’m proud of you,but don’t keep it inside okay? Remember that I’ll always listen.”
Joshua/Jisoo He was waiting for you outside your house so that you two could go hang out together. When he sees you run out the house with a distraught expression, he ushers you to the nearest park where you both sit on a bench and he lets you talk about the tension in your house. “It must be really hard on you. That isn’t the type of environment you should be in. If you ever wanna escape, you can call me or message me anytime. We can hang out until you decide to go back.”
Jun/Junhui He was on the phone with you after an argument you had with a family member and he was a mixture of worry and anger. He was upset that your own family would say those things to you, but also worried on if it would ever escalate. “Hey, wanna meet up tomorrow? I have an early recording tomorrow so afterwards we can go watch that movie you wanted to see. At times like this we should run away right? Don’t bring your wallet,I’m paying for everything. No buts!”
Hoshi/Soonyoung You both met up for your weekly late night tours of the food market. You both were eating at a booth when you tell him about the fights that have been taking place at home. He holds your hand as you tell him and doesn’t push you to tell him more. “I’m sorry I can’t stop all of that. I would do it in a heartbeat if I could. You know that right? I want you to be strong for me okay? If you want someone to cry on or to laugh with, then I’m always here! I promise you that,promise!”
Wonwoo You called him and told him you were waiting outside the dorms. You hung up before giving him a reason why so he rushed down and let you in. All of the members left to get food from nearby while he stayed back. He ushered you to his room and you told him the argument you had with your mother and how you left without her knowing.“I’ll text the others to order another serving for you. You can eat with us, and if you wanna stay the hyungs won’t mind. I’m always here for you, I know it’s tough right now but if anyone can make it through this, it’s you. I know you’re stronger than you think.”
Woozi/Jihoon You asked him for an impromptu meet up. When he met you at the nearby cafe he noticed that you had a bag that looked quite full. When you asked him if you could stay over at the dorms until your family cooled down he instantly agreed. “You don’t even have to ask. Of course you can stay with us. I can share with one of the other guys so you sleep in my bed. Here, you must be hungry, I’ll order us something and then if you want we can head over and you can settle in. If you wanna tell me what happen go ahead, or not, you decide okay?”
DK/Seokmin He was looking to relax after a long week of practices, recording sessions, and appearances so he invited you out to a movie. When you arrived, you were struggling to hold up a smile and he immediately pulled you over to a nearby table and patted your hand as to ask if anything happened. “You were really easy to convince to watch this movie with me, usually you tell me you’re too lazy! If something happened you can tell me, I’ll listen. I chose a really funny one that everyone is saying is really good. Let’s forget about everything for now, and then after the movie, if you still feel down, then we can talk okay?”
Mingyu You texted him in the middle of the night and he was going to bed after long practice session. You were asking if he could meet up at a nearby park because you needed someone to talk to. He changed and told the members that he’d be back soon and headed over. Once he found you, you began to tell him of the situation at home. He listened and nodded at different points in your rant. “Yeah, that sounds really difficult. I’m glad you told me about it all. I hope you feel a little better after this. I know it’s kinda cold but, wanna go get some ice cream? There’s a place that stays open late and they have your favorite.”
The8/Minghao You two were out hanging out at a nearby park after he had a long week of appearances on TV and radio shows. You two were sitting on a bench when you asked him if you could talk to him about something and he encouraged you to go ahead. After you told him about the arguments, he patted your hand and smiled softly to encourage you to let everything out. “You don’t deserve to be in that kind of situation. I know it hurts a lot right now and it may seem like things are getting worse, but just know that later on you’ll laugh at yourself for getting so worked up over this. Until then, I’ll always hold your hand through these times.”
Seungkwan He got your text as he got back to the dorm with the guys after a group dinner. As he read it, he rushed to put back on his shoes and jacket. He told the others it was an emergency and that he’d be right back as he ran to where you told him you’d be waiting. He found you at a bus stop and hugged you tightly. You told him about the argument you just had and how you couldn’t stand being there any longer. “I wish I could take your pain away. You shouldn’t have to suffer like this. Come on, you’re staying with us! Tomorrow we can spend the whole day together and have fun. Let’s go get some sleep.”
Vernon/Hansol You woke him up with your call and he groggily answered. When he finally realized you were tearing up as the call continued he woke up fully and left the room to go the hall to answer your call. You told him how you had a big argument with your family and are now in your room trying to go to sleep but with trouble. He talked with you for a bit so that you’d let everything go and when you were beginning to fall asleep he decided to ask to skip practice tomorrow so he could spend the day with you. “Hey, tomorrow I don’t have practice so we can hang out all day. We’ll go eat, maybe go to a mall or take a walk in a park or something. Sound good? Okay, I’ll see you tomorrow, get some sleep. Night.”
Dino/Chan He was going to meet up with you to go try out a new ice cream shop that opened near the dorms. He was waiting for you at the shop and when he spotted you he called you over to the table he got and you sat down. He questioned your upset appearance and when you didn’t want to tell him he nodded and called over a waiter. After ordering, you decided it would help to talk it out. As you told him the recent argument you had at home he took your hands in his and silently listened the entire time. “You’re so strong, I am proud of you for staying strong. But don’t keep this stuff bottled up, it will only hurt you even more. Thanks for telling me this, I don’t want you to think I will force you to say anything, but if you want to, I’m always ready to listen okay?”

You weren’t sure how you’d ended up in the small shop on the corner of downtown, but there you were. It was a rustic, Victorian looking shop, and it just sort of called to you. You’d always been into that kind of stuff, the flowy tops and elegant skirts.
