2015 Recap





OOTD: White off shoulder top from Dataran Pahlawan  l  Pants from Thailand  l  Sandals from Vincci


Have not been actively blogging due to my extremely tight schedule but I must do this post! A recap of 2015. (and also last outfit post of 2015!)

2015 hasn't been the smoothest year, in fact, it was quite challenging. I guess as humans we tend to remember more of the not so great things, but I'm thankful that I kept this blog (sort of) alive so that I can look back at all the memories!

Here's all the good things that have happened this year:


January


February

June
  • Sponsored by Number 76 to try out their treatment (and then later on got a full year sponsorship from them! Yay!)

July

August
  • Went on a Penang trip with my course mates.

November
  • Became a director for a marathon event at my Uni, which is Larian Gegar 2015. Needless to say this was my ultimate highlight for the year, and has gotten me busy for sooo many months. I think it's the first time ever I felt that I put my 101% effort to doing something. Unfortunately, have not had the time to blog about it, but I will do it after finals. 

December
  • Got my braces off! (Which I have also not blogged about, but here's a picture!)
  • Turned 21


I am really grateful for all the blessings and challenges in 2015. It has been a year of growing, learning, and more learning. Can't wait to see what's in store for 2016 :)


Thank you 2015, and Happy New Year everyone!

T w e n t y O n e


I'm finally Twenty One! Got my golden key yo! Ironically, turning 21 means gaining freedom, but honestly, all I wanna do is stay as close to my family and friends as possible.

I guess going to Uni, having to leave behind my family, friends, familiar surroundings, have made me extra appreciative of everything I have and to cherish the time I have with my loved ones. (albeit my Uni isn't THAT far from home, but I guess a 2 hours drive is far enough for me.)

Looking back at the 21 years, I am so grateful for everything. I am truly, wonderfully blessed. (Thank you God!) I have people who love me, I have everything I need and more. If this is not enough, then I don't know what is. 

I am especially thankful for everyone that I have crossed paths with throughout my 21 years of life so far. Everyone that I have met and known at a certain point in my life have helped shaped me to who I am today, and I'm thankful of that. Wow getting a bit sentimental here, haha, but I really can't thank everyone enough!

Some pictures of all the people I love and am grateful for!


I am thankful for my family, who has provided me with unconditional love. I wouldn't be where I am without their love and support.


My girls who always got my back.




Form six buddies! We went through and survived High School together!



 Uni mates! 2 and a half years to go more people!



*ahem* This is self-explanatory I guess :P



Had a simple birthday celebration but I am beyond contented. Spending time with my loved ones and receiving well wishes from those who really care means the world to me. 

I couldn't ask for more :)



 Ending this post with a selfie because..I ain't getting any younger and I may not be able to pull off selfies like that in future years. hahah.


Merry Christmas everyone! and Happy more years of living to myself :)



P.S: Ooh yes my braces are off!! But this will be another story for another time. *winks*

During and After Bath Essentials


I always feel that the best time of the day is after taking a good bath / shower. Just feel more refresh and clean after that :D




Recently got my hands on these shower/after shower essentials from Natta Cosme. One is the shower cream and the other two are body serums.







BENEFITS:
  •  Whiten and moisturizes skin
  • Keep skin soft and smooth. Relieves irritation.
  •  Protect skin from UV rays


LIKES:
  • Good smell
  • Affordable




VERDICT:

I do really like the milky smell of the shower cream. It actually kind of smells like baby powder also. haha. Plus points for its cute packaging design as well! Love the cow patterns on the bottle. So far I don't have any dislikes for this particular product.




I used to neglect any body skincare but ever since someone commented that the skin on my legs look very dry, I have been diligently using body lotion for at least 5 years now. This is the first time I tried using body serum instead of lotion. So here's my review :D


I received 2 types of body serums. One is more suitable to be used in the day, and the other at night.



BENEFITS:
  • Protects skin from sun rays
  • Nourishes skin


LIKES:
  • Smooth texture
  • Absorbs easily when applied
  • Contains SPF


DISLIKES:
  • Strong distinct smell that lasts quite long





BENEFITS:
  • Locks skin moisture and softness

LIKES:
  • Absorbs fast when applied
  • Non sticky

DISLIKES:
  • Strong smell




VERDICT:

I believe body skincare is equally important as facial skincare. So applying body lotion/serum after showers is a must for me. The pink one is definitely more suitable for day-use as it contains SPF, while the blue one is good for night-use because it locks in moisture which is suitable if you sleep in an air-conditioned room. But honestly, I don't quite like the strong scent of both the body serums, as my nose is particularly sensitive. It's not that they don't smell nice, in fact they do smell great! They have a sweet scented smell, but it is too strong for me and it lasts quite long. It'll be a win-win situation for those that love scented things though. Can be a lotion/perfume in one :D



You can get all 3 items above from Natta Cosme! Good news is that each purchase of any of these items comes with a free mini spa salt! 



Even better news! Key in the discount code "TREATS" during checkout to redeem a free Hada Labo Whitening Face Wash :) Terms and conditions as stated in the picture above.

Hello October


Hello October :D I'm back from my 1 month hiatus! It's been really hectic recently, adjusting back to Uni life and getting swarmed with activities and work load. Hopefully I can post at least twice a month from now.




OOTD: Striped top from Cajoyness  l  Black pants from Cotton On  l  Shoes from Skechers  l  Hat from Thailand

Decided to post this outfit that I wore when I traveled in Thailand. I was quite adamant to wear only shorts throughout the trip but was sort of 'forced' to wear long pants because our tour brought us to a temple.

It turned out okay and I didn't melt of the heat like I thought I would. Also, I very highly recommend these black and white shoes from Skechers! They have the memory foam soles that are super soft, and it makes you feel like you're walking on pillows :D


That's all for now. Will try my best to update as often as I can :) Till then!

A pop of colour










Outfit: Striped top with tassels from Vintage Style (DP)  l  Leather leggings from Honeymoon (DP)  l  Sandals from Vincci  l  Hat from Thailand  l  BKK Original bag from Thailand (Asiatique)

Taking a  break from my Thailand trip posts (you can read them here) to blog about this outfit I wore the other day.

Very much in love with my BKK Original Bag that I got from their official store at Asiatique, Bangkok! It's so bright and vibrant, and it really gives a pop of colour to my monochrome outfit :D The size of the bag really helps you to cut down on excess things, so usually I only have my phone, wallet, tissue and a lipstick inside.

Tassels are quite popular lately, but I couldn't find any t-shirts or singlets with tassels that suit me, so I'm glad I found this striped top instead. And as a flats over heels kind of girl, I am sooooo happy that Vincci has been producing a lot of very nice flats lately. Very practical for everyday wear and fashionable at the same time ;)


That's all for now. Happy Merdeka everyone! Have a great day and let's continue to fight #forabettermalaysia :)

Thailand trip: Santorini Park


Continuing about my Thailand Trip with another place that we visited, Santorini Park.



Honestly, I felt that this was quite a let down. When they mentioned "Santorini Park", I imagined it to be a replica of the real deal. I thought it would be something like...

Or this.

But instead, it was just a theme park with white walls and splashes of blue here and there. 70% of the rides and attractions were unopened, and the ones that are open are mostly for kids aged 12 and below. Most of the staircases there also lead to nowhere, so there's no point in climbing them. And for this, they called it "Santorini Park".  There wasn't even like a miniature sculpture of the real deal. Oh and the signature blue half dome shaped roofs of the actual Santorini was also not in sight. 



Their saving point was that there were many quirky murals and interactive wall designs at every corner. So everywhere was quite photo-worthy.









I especially love this piece of art. So vibrant and colourful!




Spot the flying cats!



A cafe that wasn't open, but still nice to take picture outside.


OOTD: Striped bustier from F Block  l  Geometric skorts from Honeymoon  l  Sandals from Vincci  l  Hat from Thailand  l  Choker (birthday present)  l  Backpack from Jonker Walk



The park is not really huge, they have a lot of retail shops. The prices of the non-branded stores are quite reasonable, and their quality is good. So I recommend you visit their stores there.


To kill more time, I also recommend their 3D art museum. It's fantastic and very entertaining! The entrance ticket does not include any rides or attractions, so you have to pay for them separately. They do have packages, but since we only wanted to see this attraction only, so we paid 240 baht per person to enter.


Getting a painting of myself.



Receiving a flower garland.



Being ultra mischievous.


Very aware that my thighs look huge here. Note to girls: go for the smaller end.


Look ma! I can do splits!






Galloping away from this park.


There are more to the 3D art museum of course, but I just chose a few to publish or else this post would be too long. It is worth the price, and since there's not much to do anyways, might as well go for it.



At the end of the day, I guess I had my expectations up too high. It is quite a pretty place for photos. Just don't expect it to be even a fraction close to the actual Santorini in Greece.
