happens to you is a test, but also a revelation, of yourself and others. Experiences
teach us how to deal with similar situations the next time it happens. It also
teaches us and helps us firm up beliefs or thoughts of a particular idea about people
or things. Going to New York City might be a huge splurge I never intended
(OUCH!) but if I didn’t I wouldn’t come to understand my biological father whom
I’ve not seen for more than 10 years. Do I really need the experience to
complete my life? No. Because life carries on with or without it. But doing so
will provide enlightenment to the few but pressing questions I've always had. We all grow through life's ups and downs don't we? (IT'S A GOOD THING). With good characteristics we've observed
we emulate and with weaknesses in mannerism and personalities identified it will be a
lesson I take to learn about the qualities I do not want in myself. And this can only happen through interactions with others. Everybody we
come across in life provides a perspective we don’t see without the experience
of it. The only way for closure is to do, learn and move on – a new beginning. I'd like to believe people always change for the better.
It was only a year or two ago that I chance upon this
article piece by Willam Deresiewicz. There’s an unexplainable feeling while
reading through the article again yesterday night; which I can’t put into words
or verbally clarify.
I can’t help but to reflect deeply about the whole article,
insightful words; perhaps you’ll find it interesting!
I thought it is time to share some of my design stuff on this blog since I haven't updated it for such a long period of time. (Driven partly due to guilt and of course because I love interacting with all of you!)
Here's one of them after I was inspired reading though various personal blogs and quotes.
As promised, here’s how the foundation looks like on
face! The first picture is just the foundation and topped with pressed powder. I live in tropical climate so I tend to finish off foundations loosely with powder to set my make-up. If on it's own, 100% foundation would fade a little if I'm perspiring heavily on a hot day. The
next picture is how it looks like with an additional or two layers of setting powder on. I’ve yet to review
the lipstick! Will post about it soon! <3 Updates: if you have any questions about where I purchased my items, send me a note and I will respond accordingly! * posted in a hurry and I forgot to mention about it earlier!
lipstick and foundation I own from 100% pure. Got to learn about them when I was looking for an organic make-up alternative sometime back. It feels great especially when you actually had an idea of the ingredients while going through the content lists =)
be doing a review of these two products soon!
more on what I've been obsessed about lately! I'm always finding new obsession every other day. I'd like to think i'm generally very interested in life =D
these eye make-up are so pretty aren't they? <3 <3
here are my top 4 beauty inspirations, i think they are so so beautiful <3 went searched for some of their pictures online and just want to share them here Vanessa Paradis Clemence Poesy Chloe Sevigny Sophie Marceau pic credits: you'll find here
i was feeling
rather inspired and made myself up yesterday with the new pinkish blusher i
purchased just a few days ago that costs less than $2 USD! Bought it out of
shock (I mean the price!) and mainly because the last Revlon blusher i had were
already two years old; think it’s time to toss it out.
surprisingly it has a really nice cloudy pink hue upon application. Just, use your own blusher blush because the one provided is a complete no-no but for the price I shan't complaint!
obviously i'm not a really qualified beauty blogger but i try ^^
