My Current Everyday Skincare and Favourites

Happy New Year! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas! I am slowly getting back into the swing of things as far as blogging is concerned. There has been a lot that I’ve missed from writing and sharing my thoughts which I’m slowly rediscovering again and what better way to ease back into it than to show my current favourites? I thought best to split it – one makeup version which you can catch up with here and one skincare version. I hope this cover is okay? In truth, a lot of these products became empties – some of which I’ve disposed of so it wouldn’t have made sense to take a photo when products would be missing.

My Current Everyday Makeup and Favourites

It’s been a time since I’ve written anything makeup-related so I thought I’d kick things off again by letting you in on my current everyday makeup routine. I was going to call it a makeup tutorial but I didn’t want to seem like some self-defined high-up person who could teach about makeup. I’m just a girl who somehow got into it and figured what’s best for me and what’s not, y’know? Certainly, there are a lot of makeup favourites in this routine which I’ve stuck to everyday – or at least every time I do my makeup. It’s perfect for work but also dressy enough to go out – a little something but not overly done. I actually haven’t gotten sick of the routine and since a job change, I realise how routine is so key. I’d like it if you could reply with your current makeup routine and favourites. In exchange, here’s mine! It would also benefit you greatly if you grabbed a hot beverage as this is a long post… Featured in this …

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 …

My Current Treatments Routine

Due to the weather change, in the last month I have been more pro-active in keeping the hydration levels of my skin up. Although I have combination/oily skin, I think the same can be said for everyone else that there comes a time when our skin is more vulnerable than normal. A lot of the time (regardless of if your skin is dry/oily/sensitive), we are guilty of suffering from dehydration which causes a skin imbalance. Once that problem gets out of control, more problems seem to arise. Red alert. This is where treatments come in handy! (Ironically, it is super windy outside. Strong winds can be harsh on our skin and blow out any moisture therefore ideally, it needs to be treated.) Here are the featured items that I’m going to be talking about in this post:  Garnier Pure Active 3-in-1 Wash Scrub and Mask The Body Shop Blue Corn 3-in-1 Scrub Mask (discontinued) The Body Shop Mineral & Ginger Warming Massage Clay Mask Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips My Scheming Blackhead Removal Activated Carbon …

Running Late? 10 Minutes to Get Ready Routine

I’m planning to grow my blog more in the next year or so and it’s time to add another important aspect into my life: beauty. In some ways, I can imagine an eye-roll considering the negative connotations that come with beauty and with liking this, liking that; being like this, being like that. But I’ll leave this talk for another post 🙂   This particular post isn’t an overnight idea or one I brainstormed hard on. It just happened. This follows a true story, which come to think of it, I want this blog to embrace what’s natural to me too and what really happens in my lifestyle, as well as what I think. On Sunday, I was due to meet some friends however, I woke up pretty late and as such, there was no way I was going to make it in time. Yet I still wanted to look presentable and put-together. My skin wasn’t in its best condition either (spotty) but it happens. I remembered the previous week-end I had used the same …
