Introducing My Little Monster

Hey boys & girls! If you have been following my blog for some time, you’d notice that I have once a while mentioned about my little puppy…. I’ve never officially introduced her, so today’s entry will be all about her…. And fret not, she will continue to make appearances in the future! 😀 I was contemplating between Robin (from One Piece, a Japanese anime) and Om Nom (the green monster from Cut the Rope), and decided to name her Om Nom!

If you all followed me since the beginning of the blog, or if you did read back on my old posts, you would know that I used to have another Maltese puppy named Seraph. She passed away when she was 10 months old, and you would know that I stopped blogging for a long while before returning….

The Big 21 Plan

Remember some time ago I posted that something BIG is coming??

IT HAS LAUNCHED!! Yay!!

So, my sister’s 21st birthday is coming…. I’m not sure how other parts of the world is, but for Asians, 21st birthday is rather important…. It marks the beginning of adulthood, where you get a key from your parents, symbolically meaning that you now have your freedom…. Although that is not usually the case if you still live under their roof and still spend their money….

Anyway, rather than going all out on a birthday bash, she embarked on a noble project… To raise funds for a charitable cause…. The proceeds from the fund raiser will be used to buy food, clothes, essentials etc to be donated to children homes and animal shelters….

Aptly named The Big 21 Plan, she has created a Facebook page here…. She designed her own T-shirts which are up for sale at affordable prices and they are available on a pre-order basis…. Despite the limited designs right now, if there is good response and support for her cause, more designs will come up!

Please do support and share about this charity fund raiser and help a soon-to-be 21 year old girl fulfil the objectives of her cause…. Thank you so much dear readers!!

Day 21: Donuts Craving and Feeling Better

For the past 3 weeks, I have been craving for Big Apple Donuts…. Their donuts are so soft and delicious…. But being the lazy me, I just let my cravings continue rather than drive 20 minutes to Giant Hypermarket to buy them….

My dear senior (shall keep it anonymous to maintain her privacy) who has graduated happened to come back here for some matters…. And to my surprise and delight, she bought some Big Apple Donuts for a few of us! Just see how wonderful He is, that even though I never requested for my cravings to be fulfilled, He provides it, at the right time!

Day 19: Of Cockroaches and Exercise

Today started off on a bad foot…. All thanks to my biggest nemesis…. It was a relative of these 3…. Granted that it was not as cute, but thank goodness there was only 1, and it was not as annoying/mischievous as them!!

Usually when I see one, my immediate reaction will be to scream for help while I run away to safer grounds…. Lest it decides to fly towards me…. I must say, the scariest of them all are the flying ones! >.< Living so high up, with all windows closed, I had no idea how it even enter!

Day 14: Appreciating Little Things In Life

So, it has been 2 weeks…. How am I coping? I would say, borderline…. hahaha…. I’m able to handle, but at times I just feel vulnerable….

I have essentially been a loner kind of person (I guess…) So staying alone wasn’t that bad as I had imagine it to be… In fact, I occasionally enjoy the solitary-ness, sitting there, thinking to myself or just plain lazing there….

Nature & Co. Vital Purity Lift Mask Review

So previously I mentioned about buying some beauty items from HiShop.my, and we could choose some free samples to come along with our purchases….

Try to spot the mask inside my box! 😀

20130508_194858a

 Few weeks (or was it months? hahaha!) back, I tried the Nature & Co. Vital Purity Lift Mask and I must say, I’m quite fond of that mask…. 🙂 Nature & Co. is under the umbrella of 1 of Japan’s cosmetic giant Kosé, running an organic line…

With a small sample pack like this, and also a small face (chey, self-praise), I managed to use the mask 4 times! This is such a huge bargain compared to many sample packs which I have tried before, they only give enough for 1 or 2 applications…. How can a consumer determined if your product is good for them and it is worth buying if they have only tried once? Right? Right?

Ok, so back to the Vital Purity Lift Mask… It is a clay mask, so when you apply it on your face, it hardens after awhile…. It would have been better if there was some sort of brochure or instructions coming together with the mask though, especially for people who are exposed to this mask for the 1st time…. I was wondering if it was a wash-off or peel off mask! Blur me…. Hahahahahaha….

Here’s how the consistency looks like when squeezed from the sachet… it’s not too thick, glides onto the skin quite easily because of it’s rather thin consistency…. But you’ll need to layer it properly to have a good coverage…

Oh! Another important point why a brochure is needed is so that the product can be introduced…. Just by looking at the sachet, I was wondering what will it do to my face? Or what ingredient does it contain? This is important for people with allergies…. Despite internet being readily available, many girls become like small children when they receive free gifts, especially beauty products! So we tend to become over-excited that we want to try it out ASAP…. XD

So I ended up using it before searching the internet about it…. :p Well, in a way, you don’t know what to expect from a product, and your expectations won’t be that high…. Lazy+busy me only searched about this mask AFTER I finished the whole packet…. Hahaha….

They claim to be able to tightens pores and smoothens skin texture (not sure if my pores were tightened, but I do feel a firmer skin after washing off the mask), the mask also has this cool-feeling when applying it, even when it is in room temperature…. Imagine if it was stored in a fridge…. Xb

According to HiShop’s website, the mask is to be left on for 5 minutes before washing off, but I like to leave my mask on longer, at the same time doing other chores/work…. I actually left mine on for like 15-20 minutes, and the cool sensation stayed…. yay! Good to use during hot weather….

Here’s how it looks on your skin.… But oops! I forgot to take a before and after pics.… :p

Another thing I like about this mask is that it does not have too strong a perfume/fragrant smell, instead it has a herb-ish kind of smell…. too much of fragrance is not good for our skin…. And unlike other clay masks which I have tried (not that I’ve tried a lot tho), it was easy to wash off, no rubbing required! Just continuously splash your face with cold water and it will slowly rinse the mask off, leaving a soft & supple skin… 😀

Will I buy this mask? Oh yes! But after I have finished the tonnes of other masks I have on my table currently…. Or else I’ll just end up hording more masks… :O but if there are any kind-hearted people, I don’t mind a wonderful gift… :p It costs RM88.90 in HiShop.my for a 140ml and it comes in a jar…. A mask in a jar is something I’m not very fond of, but sadly most masks I used come in a jar…. >.<

Have you tried this mask? Are you also a mask freak like me? What other masks have you tried that works for you as it claims? Do share below at the comments…. 🙂

♥ beauty mask ftw!

Day 03: Falling Sick

So far, the days have been rather busy…. Classes goes on from morning till night…. @@ But that’s just weekdays…. I wonder how would I cope during the weekends…. hmm….

By the time I reach home, I’m dead beat, but I still try to do some light exercises before I head to the kitchen to prepare my dinner…. Sometimes during times like these, being alone isn’t so bad, you don’t see with your own eyes how other people are enjoying their time while you bury your head in books, books and endless books…. But at times, you wish that there is someone there to physically comfort you…
