Hi guys! I’ve been gone for a week, but it didn’t feel that long, at all. I wanted to take another week, but some of you might forget about me, so I thought I’d drop by and say hello. Also, because I’ve been gone and haven’t talked about beauty, let’s just talk about me again. We ALL know I’m full of myself right? We’ve already established that here. Also, I’m tagged by Jenny, and I’m not one to wuss out πŸ˜›


60D selfie

  1. I quit my full time job – my last day is… soon
  2. That job was toxic and sucking my life and soul out of me
  3. I only believe in gender equality when it suits me. Now, my husband should definitely provide for me πŸ˜›
  4. We all know I have a dimple. My mom has a dimple. Chloe has a dimple. Ashlyn has a dimple. All our dimples are on the right side of our face. Coincidence? I think not. It’s mutation for sure, passed on only through daughters!
  5. I believe in ghosts and I’d scare myself stupid then laugh about it
  6. I just upgraded my camera equipment, not because it’s flashy, but because I find I need those functions and lenses to produce better quality pictures. Then again, hubs always tells me it’s not the equipment, it’s the photographer. Whatever. I’m cooler now. What is it? It’s a Canon 60D body with a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8, and another Canon 50mm f1.8 prime lens.
  7. The first makeup item I bought was a lipstick. I remember it was Revlon, and it was brown. It was the 90s, people.
  8. I never knew how to apply mascara until I was in my 20s. Yes, laugh it up.
  9. This 30 random things is so much harder than my 50 random things
  10. My husband and I are born in the same year, but I am 4 months older
  11. I’m thinking about setting up another blog perhaps about pregnancy and motherhood. Perhaps to share the whole pregnancy journey, beauty updates, body updates, and how to lose baby weight after? For all I know, it can be a complete fail of how I look 6 months pregnant when I’m only 3, and after pregnancy, I’d stay that way for a year >_<
  12. I don’t talk very much in real life. Don’t believe me, eh?
  13. During my 1 week break, I was contemplating just to stop blogging for another month.
  14. I’m losing my mojo
  15. Mojo reminds me of Austin Powers
  16. I don’t like Mr Bean – too much funny for me
  17. I think younger women now are so much more sophisticated than I was, when I was at that age. Maybe I’m just clueless?
  18. I hate hot weather and I live in Malaysia. Thank God for air conditioning
  19. I am a very lazy person. I only do what I absolutely need to do at the very last minute.
  20. I haven’t had a facial for 3 years
  21. I am not a sentimental person. I throw / give away old things, like clothes and shoes without a second thought. But when it comes to makeup, I’d hesitate
  22. I don’t like to talk about politics
  23. When I get angry, I cry
  24. When I’m happy, I cry
  25. Movies and cartoons make me cry
  26. You know how some people are really outspoken? And when they get annoyed, they make sure the whole world knows? Well, sometimes, I wish they’d just STFU
  27. I think I have anti social behaviour
  28. When I have too much to think about, I just go to bed
  29. Current addiction: Kimchi and avocado
  30. Famous words: OK, OK, I’ll do it… then I’d have a difficult time following through. LOL!

I’ve done it! And now, I’m drained. No words left >_< I think I’ll go to bed.


xoxo Lily

    LOL, that was one more fun to read post. Your 50 facts was also a nice read. I can definitely relate to crying part as I am a crier myself πŸ˜‰ even at stupid movies lol. Don’t stop blogging, we would read anything and everything you write.

    • Lily

      Aaw, thanks Sara. That’s so sweet of you :-)

  • 38noodles

    Awesome tag! Can’t wait to see what your new equipment can do!
    Also, I for one wouldn’t mind reading your posts on motherhood on this blog.

    • Lily

      I’m thinking about it for sure :-) I can’t wait to play with this new toy too. A learning curve I bet!

  • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

    Oh eeee so you ARE pregnant? Congrats, Lily!

    The new camera looks FANCY! I already think my 650D is too heavy to carry around. I can only imagine what a 60D must feel like :p

    I think your dimple is super cute! I had dimples under my eyes as a kid, but at a certain point they just disappeared.

    • Lily

      Not yet not yet! Hahaha you guys!

  • Icaria

    Squeeeeeee!!!! Congrats Lily! 3 months already that’s so exciting! Now you’re totally entitled to get even more lazy! πŸ˜€

    • Lily

      Lol no no! It was just hypothetical. Lol

      • Icaria

        Awww dang! Hurry up woman! πŸ˜€

        Btw, I’m totally drooling over that fancy camera of yours, hours of fun ahead for you!

        • Lily

          Haha! Yes ma’am! I’m still trying to familiarise myself with this camera but one thing’s for sure. .. loving the lenses :-)

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    LMAO @ STFU. I want to poke all your dimples and tell you ghost stories. You crack me up! (Btw, I didn’t know how to wear mascaras properly until like… last year. Ha.)

    • Lily

      Mascaras are scary stuff. Lol! And lol at ghost stories. Hahahaha!

  • http://beautyreflectionsblog.com TracyBeautyReflections

    LOL hahahaha I LOVE YOU LILY. We’re a lot alike my friend. I’m kind of anti-social as well, in that I can’t remember the last time I saw one of my friends in PERSON.
    Congrats on quitting! I did the same thing 3 years ago. I hated my job so much-it was sucking every ounce of happiness out of my body. It’s not worth the little bit of extra money to have that kind of stress put on you every day.

    • Lily

      You’re right. I’m so happy I quit and I’m waiting for my last day at work. Hurry up already! And Me? I’m going to become a hermit. Hahahaha!

  • http://www.glambunctious.com/ Kristen / Glambunctious

    I’m sorry you’ve been having the life a/k/a mojo sucked out of you and I’m very happy to hear you’re quitting and will be done soon. There’s nothing worse than having a horrible job; it bleeds into every aspect of your life when you’re spending so much time at work unhappy. You’ll get your mojo back once you’re feeling like yourself again, doll. And if you want to take a blogging break – DO IT. I’ve barely been blogging lately and it’s been kind of awesome! I have this nagging voice in my head telling me I need to write a new post and causing me to stress, but I’ve been getting better and better at telling it to STFU (HA!) and focus on what I want to focus on instead. No one will forget about you! That’s just crazy talk. πŸ˜€ XOXO

    • Lily

      Lol I love you too Kristen <3

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    I would read a blog about pregnancy and motherhood! For later πŸ˜‰ And OMG I never knew how to apply mascara properly until like, this year, LOL.

    • Lily

      Haha I’m glad I’m not the only mascara moron πŸ˜›

  • Victoria

    Haha..love your dimple story and it is definitely mutation. Glad you are happier now, no point slogging at work feeling miserable most of the time :-) All the best Lily and hope you do get your mojo back πŸ˜‰

    • Lily

      Thanks Victoria. I once told my friend I used a pencil to poke my face, hence the dimple, and he believed me. HAHAHA!

  • http://papayapieces.com/ Sofia

    I have a dimple too! Good on you for quitting your toxic job, its the best thing you can do for sane self! You know something silly, I am not sure if I believe in ghosts or not, but I sure scare myself silly! :) If you do make another motherhood blog, I would definitely follow so announce it big! :)

    • Lily

      Dimples are awesome! LOL! And yes, I’ll announce it should I decide to go ahead with it.

  • Bella

    Congrats on leaving a job that wasn’t working for you and good luck on your extended motherhood journey. I would love to read a mommy blog!! My husband and eldest son both have dimples in each cheek. And I am 6 months older than my husband, though we were born in the same year. it was not cool when I turned 40 and he was still 39 LOL. Then again, I had a toy boy ;).

    • Lily

      Oooo…. I hardly see boys and men with dimples. I think they’re sexy πŸ˜› LOL at toy boy!! HAHAHAHA!!!

  • http://www.beauty-box-online.com Beauty Box

    Are you pregnant??? I would totally read your blog about motherhood and all that jazz. Talking about how your body changes – LOL! I am going through that exactly. When I was 4 months pregnant, everybody thought I was six months pregnant. And even after giving birth, almost six months later, people still think I’m pregnant….gaaaahhh!! Anyway, was nice reading some personal stuff about you. :)

    • Lily

      Not yet! Lol! I’ll announce once I know for sure I’m pregnant πŸ˜› I’m glad to know there’ll be people interested in the possible new blog. Let’s see if it’ll happen.

  • http://kissandmakeupsbeautyblog.com/ Kiss & Make-up

    Ohhhh you quit your job? Good for you! On to something better then! And your first ever make-up purchase was brown lipstick eh? Bold! :-)

    • Lily

      Yay I quit my job! And yes, it was Brown. No doubt about it :-)

  • http://lynnyu.wordpress.com lynnyu

    Ohmygosh. I’m an old subscriber/lurker. I feel like we are the same person (minus the hubs for me). Spiritual sisters or something?

    • Lily

      Yes to spiritual sisters and I’m glad you started commenting!

  • Hannah Pearson

    I totally agree with number 23 and 24… and an extra addition… “when I’m stressed, I cry!” And well done for quitting a toxic job!

    • Lily

      Thanks Hannah. When I’m stressed, I’d huff and puff and then go to bed. LOL!

      • Hannah Pearson

        Haha, that’s my second option πŸ˜‰

        • Lily

          Then we’re very alike :-)
