Touch U game

 For all who are bored try out the Touch U Touch Me game if you like online games or games sorta similar to DDR (in a way.) And despite the name of the game it is no way dirty.
Be warned like 85% of people on there don't speak english, and 99% of songs are KPOP.
The game is for everyone children - adult.

It's free to play and if you decide you want some flashy clothes you can use the BRC you've collected from the game (from log in gifts etc), to buy BRC clothes (go to "SHOP" click "HOT" then "BRC" button at the top to view them. It's the first 40? pages) 
-OR -
You can do a quick "top-up" by going to the main website (careful you have to choose the correct game -Touch- and the correct server your character is playing on; for example -Fantasy Sky-).

Where to play:

You can play with the add-on for facebook (log in to your facebook first): Touch U fb app

or play on their website in (you need the plugin):

or download the game client on the website (warning it's in a different language but it's simple to install).

Game Play:

After creating a character you can finally play. You will start in the Beginner section of the Game Lobby and once you level up enough you can go into "Free lobby" or "Normal lobby". Don't worry you will be given the basic tutorial before starting so you know what to do.

Thanks to Youtube (seriously what would we do without it, google and wiki?) you can see a person playing at beginner level alone with backup dancers:

In this Youtube video you can see people playing the "Bubble" mode where the arrows turn into little bubble drops after you press the keys, and then at the end press the space bar when the 2 shadow figures meet in your center:

There will be 1  2  3  4  5  6 (however many players) come up when you first start a game, your first thought, "what is this for?" From what I can tell, you can vote for your favourite person (fashion wise).

If you lag in a game particularly from a background, press the "Hide Scene" button and it will change the background to pitch black (it's a tad creepy), but if you lag from a person's avatar, well, you're doomed. You will either have to change rooms, or put up with it.

If you make a friend you can Mail them with the little envelope button, or Private Message them. 

You can couple someone or marry them (though to marry you need a ring which requires $).
I find it a bit odd, but you can even make a tiny virtual baby that you can feed and hug, etc. Though I probably wouldn't try to make one on there myself, I do think it's a neat idea.
More baby info on site: Baby system


You get gifts when you log in each day. They vary, but there is a tiny chest icon (when you hover it says "Rewards" underneath) where you get a little something something if you're on for a certain amount of time.
On the Weekends there is a "Lucky Ferris Wheel" where you get 5 spins to try and win one of the prizes. 

There are Missions you can do to try and get the reward for completion (go to "Mission" and search which you want -up to 5- and click "Accept".) You must click accept or else it will not count. The mission icon is the notebook with a music note on it.
Mission info

To see what you have click "Bag" (the bag icon with a "B") and you can choose from what you have to switch up your wardrobe or use your Rewards (ie: EXP).
The more EXP you get the faster you will level up. 
More Store Info

If you click the "Activity" icon on the far right, you can see any special activities going on and try to claim a reward or if you have a gift card code you use it there.

There are a few other things I'm sure you will pick up once there (you can use the yellow stars you've collected to spin and win, like the Ferris Wheel thing). You can also use the blue stars towards the next locked star in Zodiac to unlock it and get the gift (the first 3 are usually EXP or something, then it's Shoes, then the next 4 or so are EXP/etc again and then Pants, and so on until the very end when you get a little thing that floats above your shoulder).

Lastly Have Fun! Nothing helps stress than a fun distraction. Relax have fun for a bit then go back to everyday life.

Silkn Flash&Go

I purchased the Silk'n Flash & Go. It's an at home hair removal system that's supposed to be just as good as professional hair removal devices but it is not a laser, it pulses light into the root of your hair. You can read more about it on their website
If you have fair skin and dark hair this is for you, if not look at the site to make sure it's compatible for you as you cannot use this machine with dark skin or it will burn you! It targets dark hair so that means do not place it over tattoos or dark freckles!
If you need to mark your skin with a grid so you know where you already used the machine, then use a WHITE eye liner do not use anything dark!
If you go in the sun wear sunblock as your skin will hold all the melanin and using the device after could burn you (in fact it says wait 5 weeks if you've been in the sun).

When I started I couldn't afford the lifetime cartridge yet so I only did my underarms before getting the cartridge to do the rest of me. Sorry no pictures for that part but I will still say if it went well after a certain amount of time.
Remember it takes time for it to work. I only shaved on the day to do the treatment in hopes it would give better results. I know it may be a bother not shaving when your used to (believe me it was annoying and I forgot how beautifully soft my arms and legs could be when they were hairless) but if it gives you a better chance of the device working its results, I'm sure (like me) you will put up with the awkward phases. But if you don't do this, all is good I'm sure it will still work the same.
I forgot to take some pics here and there but when I do remember I make sure to take one. So the only "before" treatment pictures you get are of my left leg ( had 4 mosquito bites so couldn't do that leg yet).

I should note I tried waxing like half a year ago, and had some "bald spot" that barely grew in, so just putting that out there so if it looks like it's working right away in the below knee pics, it's just because of past waxing.
So far it hasn't really worked for me (bummer since that's a waste of money) but I will continue updating to see if that ever changes (I really hope so.)
I am on Treatment 8 of my underarms and I STILL have not gotten even 30% less hair growth, hence why I'm also bummed out since I desperately want this expensive device to work.

Also you may have glitches with your device like me, sometimes you have to shove the cord right in the device and twist it or hold it in because the light will turn off so you can't click the button, if it does this contact them and ask for a new one before your 60days is up. I wasn't able to because I didn't notice it was a continual problem.


*Note the treatment pics aren't taken right after the treatment but right before I shave for the next.
**Unless stated otherwise these are all in the 2nd blinking light setting since I can't handle the last higher one.

Treatments 1-4 is 2 weeks apart
Treatments 5-7 are 4 weeks apart
Treatments 8+ whenever needed

So is the Silk'n Flash&Go working? Honestly I have no idea. I sure hope so though, I'm not made of money trees. Speaking of, this is the price I payed (at the time with a 15% off code) for just the Silk'n machine. Total: $214.71
Watch out for tax it's always a pain. For me it was $21.99

Good-luck and I hope if you get the Flash&Go it works out for you, if not make sure to return it BEFORE the time runs out for the 60 day money back return policy at Silk'n.
Know that their customer service is not good, however if you want that 60 day guarantee you may have to put up with it if you don't want lose your money if it doesn't work for you.

I recently tried to ask Silk'n a few simple questions about results, etc, it was a paragraph long, and what did they respond with? 2 sentences, with one that made me feel like a moron (I doubt it was intentional) saying to shave first. Of course I know to shave first.
If you are wondering how long it takes for results to show, here was the response:
Typically users would see results around the 3rd or 4th treatment, and the first thing you'd notice is that the hair is growing back slower and thinner. 

Please make sure you are shaving before treatments, otherwise they will be rendered ineffective.
