#12: Skincare Sundays | Getting that pink glow with St. Ives Singapore

Hello, hello.

I’ve been feeling pretty down and insecure about the whole blogging thing – which kinda explains for the absence of posts this week. Sorry about that.

So, in an attempt to cheer myself up, I cast around for something else I enjoyed both doing and talking about. Which is, you know, skincare. I am by no measure a beauty blogger but I like to think that I know a thing or two about taking care of my skin.

It’s funny because this year has seen a surge in my love for skincare. Which is great because before this enlightenment, I used to wash my face with soap. FUCKING SOAP. The horror.

And of course the other lifestyle factors like sitting all day in an air conditioned office and also, I guess, the wearing down of the invincibility of youth. All of which contribute to an ever growing interest in everything skincare, so.

Here’s to the birth of Skincare Sundays.

#11: Shit, I’m not a teen anymore | Over-dramatic thoughts on turning 20

Hello friends!

I’m 20 today. Let me be utterly raw with you about my thoughts on reaching the big 2.

Unlike my 18th birthday, today feels kind of bittersweet. Physically, I’ve still got frizzy hair, annoying blackheads and bad vision. But somewhere in the corner of my mind, I know there’s change coming. That’s pretty scary.

On the train this morning, I reflected back to what my mum accomplished in her twenties. Quite honestly, I have no idea how she did it. By 35, she’d-

#10: A Personality Quiz Tells All – 16 Personalities

Hey everyone!

Just last night, as I was browsing through Facebook, a personality test caught my attention and I thought it would be fun to try it out and see where that took me.

In brief, you have to complete a series of short questions to find out which personality type YOU have.

The test is easy to do and its layout is user-friendly with no signups. Zero hassle. For maximum accurate results, you must your answer the question honestly; even if it gets a tad bit unpleasant sometimes.

Once you have taken the test, you will also be able to read an informative report about your personality.

There are so many different areas of analysis for each personality, ranging from the strengths and negatives to career paths and workplace habits, so I decided to pick out the more interesting ones to share.

#9: The 15 Best Chick Flicks On Netflix Singapore – June 2018

Hello my amazing friends!

In today’s post, I want to share with you some of my favourite chick flicks streaming on Netflix Singapore!

It’s no secret that I can be an incredibly girly-girl at times, which is obviously why chick flicks are one of my guilty pleasures. They’re bad but funny, cheesy but lighthearted, lame but charming- a perfect recipe to kick-start my mornings on the way to work.

a quick snap of what I got from mcdonald’s for dinner that day because as much as I love my healthy food, nothing beats a good burger/wrap/mcgriddle/nugget and fries. oh, and diet coke.

Also, random fact insert. I love watching chick flicks in accompaniment to my take away McDonald’s – god knows why. There’s just something special about this sinful combination. You should try it sometime; it’s an experience.

#7: My foolproof guide to SPF – and why you should use sunscreen

While we need a little sun exposure for our daily vitamin D fix, too much sun can be dangerous. If you’re not wearing sun cream on your face all year round, now is probably a good time as any to think about adding one to your daily makeup routine!

That skin tightening serum you swear by?

It might mean nothing if you’re not tackling the most potent skin ruiner – UV rays. 

If you’re feeling a little clueless, don’t worry; here’s your crash course on SPF 101. I’ve got you covered, literally.

#6: Mid-train digressions on racism

oops neon

Are normal human beings supposed to be this sleepy all the damn time?

I don’t know about you, but mornings tend to bring out the worst in me- I’m crotchety, snappy and grumpy smashed into a physical being.

Usually I’ll be able to snag a seat to snore the train stops away, but today just wasn’t one of those days, I reckon. So instead, I ended up reaching for – not more snooze time – but time to observe. And holding on to it, zoning out, and then drifting into a vegetative state on the train.
