Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020!

Saturday, 18 January 2020
It's been quite a while since I updated this site. To be honest, the whole chunk of 2019 left me really weary and I just lost the motivation to write about anything. Writing became work and it didn't feel good. I felt really heavy and burdened.

There was a huge loss of focus throughout the year.
Aside from committing myself to a full-time job at a local digital agency, I also started taking charge of my physical wellbeing again. It certainly was not easy to get back on the fitness grind and it really took me some time to adjust my body and headspace to juggle both together.

Travel was on a minimal and I didn't even step out of the country in 2019. What a shocker! The furthest I traveled to was to Langkawi, a beautiful island located in the Northen region of Peninsula Malaysia, where Jack and I spent our 6th-year anniversary there. We really had a blast, experiencing island-hopping on a jetski together for the first time.

Towards the end of the year, I took some time reflecting on myself and my future.
I definitely was not feeling myself and I took the courage to hand in my resignation letter in December. I left a wonderful, wholesome team of colleagues and I was definitely teary towards the end of my work week.


-------


To welcome the new year 2020,
I am determined that this will be the year
where I align myself and my life's goals once again.


With a new life chapter, I experienced a renewed passion for little things once again.
Things like showing up for gatherings. Rekindling with friends. Dressing up to feel good.
Followed up on conversations. Little sparks that make life blissful.


The Law of Attraction is a very peculiar principle that seems to hold true for me.
Good thoughts beget good energy.
Feeling good about myself became truly effortless.


Funny how a shift of perspective or even a change of scenery can change a person so much.


-------


Simple things like dressing up always make me happy.
During the holidays, I took the time to celebrate with my loved ones.
Loved ones including our pomeranian puppy, Nessie.





Seen on me, Bodycon Dress

This metallic dress is a show stopper as it hugs the curves of my body perfectly. A lightweight material that is easy breezy even on sunny moments like in this picture. I appreciate that this dress does not easily snag or pull, because you know how lightweight materials can be sometimes!

A deep plunge to get enough attention to the curves and a slight asymmetrical cloth at the front to distract any potential food baby bumps. What a genius.



Seen on me, Slinky Mini Dress

An off-shoulder cut is just one of my favourites because it showcases my broad shoulders and can also double up to hide unsightly arms. A stretchable material that easily fits any body type. Also features a ruched bust area for extra femininity for days you just want to feel vulnerable and gentle.

However, do be mindful to wear seamless underwear for this piece because sometimes VPLs do show up unannounced ๐Ÿ˜†

-------


Had a beautiful start of the New Year on 1st January with a Japanese BBQ Lunch with the family.


Seen on me, One Shoulder Dress


Nude colours seem to be calling my name these days because it just brings out my skin tone even more. Another favourite of mine, this body-hugging dress is just right even on feasting days as it tucks any potential food baby bump away. The scrunched sides make an interesting detail, allowing the focus to be shifted there instead.


A subtly sexy piece, suitable even for a family gathering!


--------


And the next day, I decided to take a trip up to the mountains with just my mother and sister (a girl's trip) to experience cool air and festive vibes, post-Christmas.


Spending time with my family and loved ones really lifted my spirits.
I'm not really one who talks a lot about relationships, but I'm convinced that having their support during difficult times can be truly helpful.



If you're going somewhere chilly, always wear something warm! Though this dress is a knit, it does feel lightweight on me, allowing me to move freely and not feel any weight. It looks really comfortable, and trust me - it does feel comfortable as well.

A beige colour can easily match with any other accessories such as bag and shoes.
A versatile piece to pack especially when travelling.


-------


That just about sums up my 2019.
Now on to 2020!

Here's wishing for more positive vibes and more beauty reviews throughout the year!

Love & Co unveils new Teddy Bear Collection

Thursday, 7 November 2019



Receiving jewellery is one of the many gifts I would personally love receiving. Jewellery allows me to stay in touch with the giver, be reminded of their kindness and generosity for years to come. To me, it symbolizes love and sometimes, romance.


This October, Love & Co. launches an exquisite collection, "Teddy Bear Collection" - inspired by the classic teddy bear, a symbol of timeless love and companionship.


When coming across with a teddy bear, most of the time we could think of warm cuddles and security. But have you stopped and wondered how Teddy got its name?


The history dated way back in 1902, when US President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt participated in a bear hunting trip, where he saved a bear. The incident inspired toymakers to nickname Teddy's Bear, and later shortened to Teddy Bear.






Made with love, each piece from this collection is designed with a shape of a teddy bear as a tender promise of lifetime companionship. Crafted with 18k rose gold and precious stones, the Teddy Bear Collection features 5 series to capture her heart:

1. Heartfelt Confession

Express your true feelings with the captivating charms of Teddy, featuring a heart in the middle.



2. Love Lock

With her hands in yours, experience the magic of love unlocked.



3. Cuddle Me

The warm and cuddly Teddy Bear, the perfect gift for all occasions.


4. You Make Me Smile

You make me feel like the luckiest girl alive.



5. My Companion

The trusted companion beloved by so many through the years.












Enjoy some of the photos I took during their media event.

[REVIEW & GIVEAWAY] Cleanse your face with the Goodness of Nature with THREE Balancing Cleansing Oil

Monday, 31 December 2018


Cleansing oils, you either love them or loathe them. I for one, have been loathing them because somehow they always find a way to put breakouts onto my face (do you also feel the same way?). That is until I tried THREE Balancing Cleansing Oil. This isn't a new product on the market - in fact, it has been a worldwide best-selling item for a while now, especially in Japan. 


Being a skeptical user, I am careful and observant when trying out new cleansers. This one, I am quite impressed at first glance as the ingredients exclude mineral oils, colourings and artificial fragrances. In fact, THREE Balancing Cleansing Oil is 88% naturally derived ingredients and its main ingredient is derived from premium Tea Seeds planted in Shizuoka, a place famous for producing top-quality tea. What's special about this oil is that its extraction process involves a heat-free cold-press method, meaning it is able to preserve all the benefits of the tea seed. Its signature golden colour is packed with nature's goodness, without the need for additional colourings.


It is recommended to use 2-3 pumps per usage but I find that a single pump is sufficient for the full face and another pump is for the neck area.


Upon application onto my face, I can sense a deeply calming effect coming from the soothing scent of the cleansing oil. It transcends me into a walk into a beautiful garden, with natural herbs blooming at every corner of the room. Cleansing is truly a luxurious moment for me with this one.


After using for about 2 weeks now, I'm glad to report that this cleansing oil
DOES. NOT. BREAK. ME. OUT.
(เน‘˃̵แด—˂̵)ูˆ

I'm really glad about its outcome and I'm continuing to spread the goodness with you through a giveaway!
