Hey guys, I haven’t been feeling so hot lately. In my last update I was doing rather well, but now my meds are different and stronger, so I’ve been weak and in pain again. With the meds I take, that’s a good thing because it will kill the Lyme, but because of feeling crappy I’ve had to scale back again and make sacrifices. Fewer game nights, more lying in bed watching K-Dramas, more kitty snuggles, slower blog posts. It sucks you know?

But here’s some good news, and it came at such a perfect time because I had been feeling like butts.

You probably already know I created a community on reddit (/r/asianbeauty), heck maybe you’re even a part of it. Usually we chit-chat about different skincare and makeup we love, and talk about products we bought or what we want to buy. I mentioned that I wanted to try the Skin79 Snail BB Cream, and a fellow redditor offered to send me some samples. I asked if she’d like me to send her anything, and she was like: No man, I’m good. What a sweetheart <3   Well, I had forgotten all about it, what with everything going on.   And then MAGICALLY this package with a lovely thank you card appeared in my mailbox:

I’m just popping in for a quick announcement ^_^ I think I may have overdid it a bit posting so much lately, so I won’t be able to review anything today.


I set up a nice space for people who want to talk shop about Asian Beauty, find resources, post or read reviews, and heck, maybe make some friends! It’s brand-spanking-new so there aren’t a lot of people there yet, that means if you ask a question or having something to say you’ll be heard! Come support us and post a few things on your mind! I’ve been putting up some articles I think are helpful, and there will be more. I read probably 20-50 articles a day and I’ll be submitting the best stuff to the community.

http://www.reddit.com/r/AsianBeauty/I made the community on Reddit and if you’re new to Reddit this is a great time to learn how to use it, and there are a lot of helpful resources on how to reddit (it’s not that hard) just a google search away.

This is a good time to remind you that if you’d like to be a part of general Cake-pie.com announcements, deals, or updates (as well as see occasional but awesome memes) don’t forget to support the Facebook group, you can find us here.

Cute Diggle PlushieBy now everyone knows how much fun I think Dungeons of Dredmor is. Those of you wanting reviews, I plan to do one once the Conquest of the Wizardlands expansion is patched. If you’re new here, I may have established that I’m pretty good at DoD when I murdered Lord Dredmor in an absurdly difficult way, and after doing so there were some events to follow that would lead to me finding a lot of great people in the game community (and having a whole new appreciation for the developer). Among the communities I found were the folks over at /r/Dredmor on Reddit. They started up a weekly Dredmor Challenge which I recently participated in and won (it was close!) So that means this week I get to make the new Reddit Dredmor Challenge! You can see the details here on Reddit/r/Dredmor. If you’re new to Reddit/terrifed of Reddit I’ve reposted the contest here as well so you can participate. (I’ll just post your scores on Reddit for you, either comment here or email me at thecakepie@gmail.com) Read more…
