Icy Winter Nails ♡

Hello everyone! This is Jem!

We are just two days away from Christmas and I’m sure you are busy getting prepared. I feel like I’ve barely gotten anything done o_o!

I came home to my hometown in New Jersey for the Christmas break! This will be my last time coming home to my hometown. My parents decided to move to Hawai’i after this, so starting from next year, it’s Christmas in warm weather.

Of course, even in warm weather, you can feel the Christmas spirit! Usually during the Christmas season, red is the popular choice for nail color. Red, gold, silver … I usually went this way too. But to celebrate winter itself, I went with blue this year. But I couldn’t stop there. GIVE ME GLITTER, ALL THE GLITTER!

I got blue mood-changing polish with rainbow glitter on top. ❤ When I’m cold, the nails are dark blue. When I’m warm, they are a light blue. And when I’m somewhere in between, the tips are dark blue and the bottom is light.


Haha, and yes, done up in Walmart.image

Light blue with a little blue tip!imageMostly light blue …

I wanted to include some inspiration for viewers out there for some nail ideas. ❤ Here come the icy winter nails!


If you are not a fan of the blue, this is a nice subtle way to go! ^^

Keeping it cool… gorgeous blue color!



Honey-Flavored Potato Chips Have Koreans Buzzing

Honey-Flavored Potato Chips Have Koreans Buzzing

Haetae Confectionery & Foods Co.

How does the idea of honey-and-butter flavored salty potato chips grab you?

If you’re Korean, there’s a good chance you’re interested. Sales of “Honey Butter Chip” from Haetae Confectionery & Foods Co., South Korea’s second biggest confectionery firm, have gone through the roof since the product was released in August.

The snack—which Haetae says features the taste of French butter and acacia honey—has become near impossible to find in many stores and has begun appearing at marked-up prices online. On Joonggonara, a popular online secondhand goods forum, more than 60 offerings could be found Wednesday afternoon. One seller was offering a 120g packet at 3,200 won, up by a third from the original price of 2,500 won.

Popular singer Kang Min-kyung vented her frustration on Twitter on Wednesday: “I went to five convenience stores and two supermarkets. You are nowhere to be seen. It might be a snack of fantasy. There must be some conspiracy,” she wrote.

According to Haetae, accumulated sales of the snack have reached 10.3 billion won, or $9.3 million, as of Tuesday. That’s about 3 billion won a month in an industry where a monthly sales figure of 1 billion won is considered a marker of success for a new product.
