Quarterly Favourites #1

Some new changes! I decided to follow a new set-up for my Favourites posts. Although these are my favourite to write (oh, the irony), I am not as inspired to write them monthly anymore. Or rather, I should say I don’t have that many unique favourites each month to show you. There are some months where I’m still in love with the previous month’s favourites or where I haven’t tried anything new. Or worse yet, where I don’t like anything. So instead, I’m combining 3 months of favourites into one. I think this is more realistic anyways – I use products for months on end! If you hadn’t already noticed, I completely skipped February because I didn’t use anything particularly new. I probably only had two favourites so a post seemed pointless on those two items. My January Monthly Favourites still stands, of course, but for a moment, let’s just pretend I’m starting new and showing you my favourites from January to March. To change things up a bit more, I am including lifestyle favourites …

Setting Up a Good Morning, Good Habits Routine

Before I get started, I just want to say that this is a ‘life project’ that I’m still currently working on so it might seem a bit hypocritical of me to write such a post. However, I believe that being open, and writing more about the subject and the lifestyle habits surrounding it, will permit a smoother, positive thought-process that’ll allow me to succeed in the lifestyle that I want. If there’s one thing to know, it’s that practice makes habit. Everyone has habits. Some quite unique, and others which we’re all truly guilty of. What we don’t want is that slump period where your bad habits truly outweigh the good ones – sleeping late, waking up late, no breakfast, meal-skipping, zero exercise…the list goes on. And if you hadn’t noticed, each habit is like a magnet, except it doesn’t attract the opposite! In modern society in particular, I think there is a common excuse to say that we’re too busy to make what is otherwise known as positive change. But if we’re too busy for everything, when …

Review: My Beauty Diary Bird’s Nest Mask

If you remember from my YesStyle Beauty Haul + Experience post, I had hauled two different boxes of sheet masks. One was the NARUKO Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask which I have previously reviewed. Today, I am reviewing the My Beauty Diary Bird’s Nest Mask. 🙂 For reference, I have combination/oily skin that can have a tendency to be dehydrated. Let’s begin shall we? What is it? It is a box of 10 sheet masks, designed to hold as much fluid as possible in order to moisten and soften the skin from layers below the epidermis. From the grid, it claims to nourish and brighten, firm and moisturise so it’s definitely a sheet mask that packs a punch (or so it seems). How much does it cost? I purchased mine for £15.51 which is a reasonable price I think. I tried to find a RRP but it was difficult to do so. However, in my experience, the ordinary MBD masks are around  £10/11 per box, and the fancier ones (like this one) …

Hong Kong Super Beauty Haul

Hello friends! I’m sure some of you have been waiting for this post for quite some time since Hong Kong’s shopping scenery is vast – from the affordable to the luxury, you are really spoilt for choice. I always want to buy the whole shop but one only has so much they can take back with them and not to mention, practicality was quite strongly taken into account. To be honest, and I know this may sound ridiculous – but I was worried that I wouldn’t have a lot to show you since I didn’t officially shop until the last few days of my vacation. This shouldn’t be a problem surely, because I should buy items that I’m interested in trying for the benefit of me (i.e. shopping) and not so much for the blog. It is not a quantity contest after all so next time, I will remember to relax more. 😛 In the end, it turned out that I actually hauled more than I thought, when I finally laid all the products on …

Pack With Me | Beauty & Skincare Pt.2 ft. What’s In My Makeup Bag?

This segment will cover the preparation and makeup aspects of my travel beauty to Hong Kong. I want to be thorough and informative on why I have chosen these particular products to take with me. If you haven’t yet, you can catch up with the first segment here which explains the skincare aspect and how I intend to look after my skin whilst I’m away. Otherwise, let’s get on with what I’m bringing makeup-wise! Note: To make it easier, I’ll split this segment into two parts – one being more of a What’s In My Makeup Bag and the other being My Base Makeup, Brushes and Tools.
