Girly talk: Daiso lipstick

I found these moisturizing and creamy lipsticks from Daiso and just had to share. Can't believe how well they worked despite the worrying retail price of 2 dollars! I mean, come on, if they were good they should deserve a better market price instead of 2 dollars. Did I just mention 2 dollars? Yeap they are just 2 dollars. Application was easy as they glide on lips smoothly without chalking. I've always had dry lips and these baby were able to keep my lips moisturized more than a few hours without food. Only thing I probably wish to see changed would be the glitters in it. But since they were just 2 dollars I could totally ignore such a minor problem.

And then below are some swatches and modeled on pictures for your perusal.

I got 3 different colours to suit different life events. Since they only cost 2 dollars.

All photos are taken under natural light :)

Swatches order from F, E to G. Please excuse my camouflaged mustache.

Afternoons in the mountains for yoga and tree climbing...

But she quickly discovered that swimming was NOT her favorite activity.

(ba)feeling(xie)(xia)(lai)


Everything that 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.

Weekly reads

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 realised in the effort to clean up my albums space some of the images might have been deleted without me realising it affecting some of my blog posts. Whoops! We definitely only learn by doing!

But what has been done can't be undone...very bummed.

I'm a naturally upbeat person so I'm going to stay cheerful for the weekend, until real responsibilities come striking.

Anyway here's what's been going on recently! :

HELLO GUYS =D

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.

100% pure foundation on face

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!

100% Pure Cosmetic

Here’s a 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 =)

I’ll also be doing a review of these two products soon!

Organic tea: English tea shop

one of my recent obsessions <3
on a special note, I find having random obsessions rather mentally stimulating, and it helps me to wake up everyday feeling like there's something special waiting for me to do =D

Here is my favourite brand at the moment!
Sorry for the crappy picture though, took it with an old mobile phone :/
