LIFE | Event: Pancakes and Promises

I know this post is pretty much a month late, and I am sorry about that. May has been a month of ups and downs, and I am just now trying to get back into the groove. Here are some photos from the EMHAC Pancakes and Promises event on April 30th this year!

Life | Real Talk: Mental Health Week 2017 

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Happy Monday everyone! It’s the first day of May (a.k.a. the first REAL day of spring according to my books), and the sun was out too! I finally booked my appointment to get my tires changed and hopefully this nice weather is here to stay. Fingers crossed!

Today also marks the first day of the CMHA Mental Health Week.

LIFE | Beauty: Saying Goodbye to an Old Fave

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!)
