LIFE | Beauty: Saying Goodbye to an Old Fave

Image - Copy

With the arrival of spring, I have totally jumped on the decluttering bandwagon. I have cleared out a lot of my eyeshadow palettes by selling gently used (still new) and brand new items on a beauty buy and sell page (maybe I will blog about this some other time).

I couldn’t bring myself to get rid of this palette. It was a graduation gift to me from a friend, and I have barely used it.

However, I feel that I should get rid of it because it’s almost 5 years old!

LIFE | Event: Eat, Pink, and Be Married – Bridal Shower

It has been so gloomy outside that I haven’t been wanting to leave my house at all (I am such a homebody it’s no joke). But I am so glad I had my friend’s bridal shower to go to this past Saturday. I had never been to a bridal shower before so I didn’t really know what to expect. In my head I thought it’d be kind of raunchy, kind of bougie, and it would be a bunch of lovely ladies getting a little tipsy. I was pleasantly surprised; Amy threw a wonderful bridal shower and it was just so much fun. I certainly felt the love and excitement. Springtime is definitely a time of fresh starts and new beginnings.

Here are some of my favourite photos from the bridal shower.

LIFE | Real Talk: Digital Detox

Okay, I admit it. I am a social media/Internet addict. I have relied on social media as one of my main sources of entertainment, to the point where I would choose it over catching up on a show, or reading a good book, or even… sleeping at a decent time. Yeah. It’s that bad.

So when I found myself trying to crawl out of a really bad (metaphorical/mental) space about a month ago, my friend Emily suggested that I delete Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. To be honest, I didn’t think I could do it. I didn’t delete my accounts, just the apps from my phone, because that’s where I normally catch up on feeds. And sadly, for Facebook I did cheat a little bit by sneaking a look here and there when I was doing stuff on my computer (sorry, Emily!).

How else would I have found out that my ex coworker had her baby?

The Nth First Post

When I first started blogging, I was around 14-15 years old. I had no idea what the hell what I was doing back then, but it was a lot of fun. I remember having so many different accounts on so many different blogging sites, like Livejournal, Blogger, Xanga… I used to have a separate blog for blogging in Mandarin! I was also a member of a multi-user blog when I was doing ‘A’ Levels in Brunei. Oh how I miss those times. I mean, who has time to blog these days (except of course the people who actually do this for a living)? Most of the people I know are all busy living their lives, and it’s so easy to just send a Snapchat or make a post on Instagram than to actually sit down in front of a computer and really plan out what to write and what to post and how to edit and all that stuff. I know I am guilty of this. So many times I’ve started (and re-started) my blogging sites, so many times I’ve fallen off the bandwagon.

I’ll try to keep this going for as long as I can, and hopefully I’ll be more consistent with it too. (This time!)
