Happy National Day to Malaysians! Selamat Merdeka!
I want to go through some empties and also to update you on what’s been happening behind the screen. As you can see, my posts have been quite sporadic. It’s the same story, really. Life took over. Kids take most of my time, energy and patience, and when I finally have some quiet time to myself, I don’t want to spend it sitting in front of the computer. I’ve been exercising, I’ve been reading, I’ve been catching up on dramas, and I’ve been taking baths. It’s been quite mundane, chauffeuring the kids to and from school, buying groceries, cooking, and I want to feel. It’s been so boring I feel like a robot. I want to laugh out loud, I want to get worked up, I want to cry, I want all the feelz, for some reason. Don’t get me wrong. I love my mundane life. I prefer to cry over a fictional drama. I prefer to get angry with fictional characters. I’m happy I have some time to read now. I don’t even know what to read sometimes, but I know I prefer mindless reading.
Beauty wise, I’ve been digging up some makeup every week and try to use them. If I don’t like using a certain makeup item anymore, I just chuck it in a box and give it to someone who appreciates it more. I try to be less boring and use more colours, but darn, I’m just a neutral girl at heart. I can just change up a look by changing my lip colour. The photo above shows the products I’ve used up. There are some I’d buy again, but there are also some I won’t. What works for me might not work for you, but I’ve reviewed most of them here. Just do a quick search if you’re interested.
Looking at this photo made me realize I’m probably scrapped from Estee Lauder and Bobbi Brown’s list. Haven’t heard from them for a while! But I have been buying quite a few Bobbi Brown things, because I genuinely like them. The few Bobbi Brown things I reviewed recently are all purchased by me, in case you thought they sent to me as PR samples.
Do you follow me on Instagram? Lately, I’ve been doing some videos and get ready with me on Instastories. They’re gone 24 hours after I upload them though. So if you’ve missed it, then it’s gone. Here are some of the looks I created. Mostly every day makeup, and one on how I apply red lips with diffused edges. Some of you suggested I do YouTube videos, but in all honesty, YouTube doesn’t need me. There are enough makeup tips there to last you a lifetime! Perhaps one day, I’ll add a private video here and there, but no promises.
So here we are. The last day of August. We’ll be hearing Christmas songs in malls soon enough! Here’s to 4 more months of 2017 and no more hurricanes or typhoons please!
