3 Sheet Masks you should try
After a week of not writing any post on my blog, I am thrilled to be back on writing before I get extremely busy with university work. Life is getting tougher when I'm at the last trimester of Master degree. The good thing for my blog was that I have a few blogposts that I have already written so I can just schedule them. I will talk about my tips on blogging every day in a few weeks. I just need to think about what tips that helped me the most during my time.

But today, I want to talk about the sheet masks. I have been face masking for a long time and I love face masks. When you give proper time to do them as much as you can in one week, your skin will thank you for giving amazing treatment after a full day of stress, makeup, oil, environmental pollution and dust combined in those little pores.

So, one tip that I want to share with to maximise the potential of any face masks to have a proper cleansing routine. Cleanse your face throughly without any harsh chemicals but a gentle and nice cleanser and then apply face masks.

Daiso Horse Oil Sheet Mask
I was as shocked as you when I saw horse oil sheet mask from Daiso. In Japan, using horse oil in beauty products are not rare at all and you'll see a lot of sheet masks and skin care items using horse oil. But for the texture and the quality of the sheet mask is good. It's moisturising to the skin and it replenishes the skin. They also have other sheet masks that has different ingredients if horse oil is not your thing. It is around $2 from Daiso in Singapore so it is at a affordable price.

Watsons Refreshing and Moisturising Facial Mask
If you have been following my blog, this facial mask is one of my favourites and this was a gift from my friend's mom. I loved using it because of how refreshing it feels on my skin. It has a wide sheet to cover my giant face and it moisturises my skin very nicely. Will recommend to all skin types.

Timeless Truth, Hydra Intense Black Charcoal Mask
This sheet mask is the most expensive one out of all three. I love the fact that it is charcoal mask so it will remove impurities at the same time providing a nice moisture back to the skin. Surprisingly, it became one of my favourite masks to put on although I use it sparingly just because of the price. If you are normal oilly gal, I recommend you to use normal charcoal mask as this is more catered towards moisturising.

Usually, I would do this kind of post as a video but this time, I wanted to branch out and try different things on a whim. So, please bare with me if I didn't write this blogpost properly.

Summer in this little island is extremely hot and humid so I thought I would give a more simple and natural look that focuses on the brows and the lips. Usually, a lot of people skip foundation and go towards concealer. But in my case, I rather have a flawless base that is not too cakey and not too "bare-faced". 
Since my skin is a combination-oily and yet dehydrated, I thought I would go with a foundation that doesn't cake my face up. So I decided to go with Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. Although in this humid weather, it doesn't last long but I wanted to go for a natural look that doesn't cake up my face so I traded the longevity of wear time with the finish. 

I set my foundation with the L'Oreal Matte Magique Mattifying Powder (L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Powder is also a good one). After setting the face, I went straight to brows. Since the face is so bare without blush and contour, I thought that having a strong brows is nicer to frame the face and have a center point of the face. I also use the same brow powder to line my eyes as a subtle eyeliner. 

After that I curled my lashes and applied mascara from Maybelline. Then for the lips, I decided to go for NYX's lingerie liquid lip colour in Exotic. However, when I took the photos of my face, I already switched my lip colour so that's why you see I have different lip colour. The lipstick that I used was from Catrice and the colour is called "My little peony".
I hope you enjoyed this blog style makeup look that has only 5 products. Let me know in the comments on what kind of blogposts you want me to do next. Thank you for reading and I'll see you tomorrow!

5 Product Summer Face
Favourite Mascaras for Summer
Mascaras were never a thing for me up until recently. I thought they never make a difference and they are a pain to take off and they ruin my makeup by smudging under my lower lash line. But when I found a good mascara that doesn't budge in summer for my oily lids, I was beyond excited.

I want to share my excitement for mascaras with you in this blogpost. I have three mascaras that are good for summer weather and my everyday mascaras for a few months and some even my favourites for years now.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is my staple mascara that I use almost every single day. I love how long lasting it is on my lashes and it gives decent volume and length to my eye lashes. It doesn't smudge on my lower lash line and it is drugstore price so it's a score.

Maybelline the Rocket mascara is another favourite for a few years and it is so good in keeping the lashes long and volumized. I love using this mascara when I only have half day school because it's not as intense as the lash sensational one because the lash sensational one is a pain to remove. The rocket one come off quite easily.

My one and oily expensive mascara that I'm in love for summer is the Benefit they're real mascara. I also really love the roller lash but I haven't been using it since it's finished and I haven't bought a new one yet. I got this mascara for free since it's a travel sized one and I was impressed on how lengthy and more volumized this mascara can give you. Although it's not as long lasting as the Maybelline lash sensational one for me, I enjoy using this mascara whenever I need a good volumized lashes, I grab this masacra.

So, this is my favourite mascaras for summer. Most of them are drugstore so they are affordable and long lasting and look good. Let me know any other mascaras that you've tried that lasted you all day that you can't live without.

Dear my boyfriend of 4 years,

Happy Anniversary Marcus. I cannot believe it's been four years that we have been together and I'm still pretty much amazed that we have been through so much in this 4 years. So much memories, so much laughter, pouts and occasional sadness. But my happiness of being with you always outweigh the sadness. 

We have graduated together, spent everyday during our university life, stressed out from coding and studying while finding time to have fun. These days we have both been so busy with our lives. You, working and working, and me, trying to finish my master degree, have so little time together that we eat and go back to our lives. Our lives involved around food and these days we only do that. Not that I'm complaining but I think we need to start working out. Going towards a more healthy lifestyle. I know that we try to spend more time on weekends but it's a bit tough when I got assignments due. I'm excited for the end of the year to go on a lovely trip with you and have fun.
So, in this letter, I want to say things that I didn't say so often but I should say more often. I know we have been together for more than 4 years, I'm still so excited to meet you for dinners. Although I'm annoyed at you for trying to rub my belly (what's with you and the love for my belly?), I'm very appreciate of you being by my side whenever I need you. 

So, ......

Thank you for being by my side. 

Thank you for feeding me since I totally starve myself when I'm alone at home. 

Thank you for always sending me back home even if you are very tired from work. 

Thank you for always make your time for me. 

Thank you for saying me beautiful when if I look like crap. 

Thank you for being with me even if I get annoyed at you all the time. 

Thank you for taking care of me all the time and help me when I'm in need.

Thank you for always supporting me through serious mental breakdowns and through stressful times. 

Last but not least, 

Thank you for loving me endlessly. I'm the luckiest girl to have you. Happy 4 years anniversary and I'm excited for the future. I love you more than you can imagine.

To my boyfriend of 4 years on our anniversary
August 2017: Beauty Haul
This time round, I bought things that I needed again and some things that I bought because it was on sale at the drugstore.

Colgate Enamel Toothpaste (2 for $11.50)
I finally finished using the old toothpaste from Colgate so this time, I decided to buy something that is intended for the enamel health. I also got a sale on this toothpaste at 2 for $11.50.

Another sale that I caught from the drugstore is from Watsons. They have this sale when you buy 3 things, you get 33% off of the total price. You are able to mix and match certain brands either be makeup products or skincare products. So, I decided to get the things that are raved amongst the reviewers and cult favourites which are on my wishlist for a while.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation (Buy 3 get 33% off)
I am so excited to try the Fit Me foundation. Although this product has been in the market in US for so long, we don't have this product available in Singapore market. Recently, they finally introduced this product in Singapore so I decided to purchase and give it a try.

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer (Buy 3 get 33% off)
Another product that is recently introduced in Singapore drugstores. This product is highly raved by the beauty bloggers and vloggers that I adore so I got sucked in and purchase. Another reason was that my drugstore is having sale for buy 3 get 33% off. I will try it and write reviews about it soon.

Loreal Color Riche in Sunset in Cannes (Buy 3 get 33% off)
I have been going to Watsons and trying this lipstick for so many times. I thought I was a nude lover but I guess I was wrong. I love this lipstick colour and I can't wait to wear it more often. Also, it was on sale so, I decided to purchase since I love the colour so much.

Lush Fresh Face Mask in Don't Look at Me
Another thing that I have been trying from samples but never decided to buy the full size one. This time, I finally gave in after trying for so many times. I adore this mask and I was thinking I want to do face masks everyday (which I'm failing to do in September).

Lush Fresh Face Mask in Rosy Cheeks (Sample)
When I bought the Don't look at me face mask, Lush has kindly gave me a few of their other fresh face masks to try out. This is one of the two. I'm so excited to try this because of the rose scent and the benefits that I heard from the promoter. Can't wait to use it!

Lush Fresh Face Mask in Love Lettuce (Sample)
Another face mask that I got from Lush. I have yet to try the Love Lettuce so I am excited to try the face mask. I heard great things about the love lettuce on how soft the skin felt and how moisturised the skin felt after using. I'll be trying this face mask tonight and will let you know how it went.

Renew Rose Hip Oil
Ohhh, rose hip oil, I love how it made my skin radiant and plump from the first bottle. I decided to buy a second bottle to test using it on my arms because my whole body is a freaking Sahara desert. Also, I think rose hip oil lightened my acne scarring so I'm hoping it would do the same thing to my arms.

July is a month where I got fed up of things I'm currently using and wanting to try new stuff. So, this month I have a few makeup bits and bobs to try out and I'm excited to use them.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
A foundation that has been raved from bloggers to vloggers and I was very excited to try this product. Although it is intentional to more normal to dry skin because of it's hydration components, I wanted to try this product because my other foundations have become a cake face for me. So I wanted to try a new foundation that doesn't cake my face and yet doesn't become an oil slick for me. So, I'm excited to try.

L.A Girl Pro BB Cream
Another foundation that I wanted to try because of the reviews. I tried it on my palms and it looks amazing on my hands and it was affordable in Singapore where drugstore prices are like Sephora prices to buy makeup in Singapore. So, just around $12 is extremely affordable in Singapore. I'll keep you posted after I have tried this foundation/BB cream.

Listerine Mouthwash 
Mouthwash has become one of the thing that I do after brushing my teeth so I'm always trying new mouthwashes. This time round, I decided to buy the Healthy White Range from Listerine to try out.

Tsubaki Extra Moist Shampoo
After using the Tusbaki conditioner for a few months, I really enjoyed the scent and how it works on my hair. I wanted to have a same shampoo that I was using the conditioner with. I'm excited for my hair to smell nice and feel moisturised and soft.

Lux Soap
Lux soaps are the bar soaps that my family use when I was young. My mother still uses Lux since I was a baby and she loves the shower cream so I decided to give it a go to remanence my childhood. It was so affordable for six bars of soap which costed me like $2.50.

July 2017: Beauty Haul
My Week in Photos (Week 37)
omg I feel so bad. I forgot that today is Friday and I haven't prepared my blogpost for today. So, although it's a tad bit late, I hope you enjoy this blogpost.

I had a wonderful weekend last week going around and eating good food with my boyfriend. I also went to Chara Expo on Saturday and I took loads of photos. One of them was this selfie that I took with Kanna-chan. She's so cute that I'm dying. Another highlight was going to Sephora and trying out the new Fenty beauty line by Rihanna and I bought my own foundation that I'm so excited. The last photo was a selfie of me trying out the foundation. I had a bit of bronzer and have highlighter (Champange pop by Becca) on my cheek bones. I'll write a blogpost about it soon.

It's already been time to do my June haul. I cannot believe I have been daily blogging trying to put an end to my blogging projects up to speed. I'm super thrilled about my progress about my blog schedule. I will do my blogging essentials soon so let's talk about haul, shall we?

Sigma 18-35 mm f1.8 Lens
June was a big spending month since I was saving up money to buy a new lens. I was conflicted between the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 lens and Sigma 17-55 f2.8 lens. Both of the lens are very nice lenses but there is a $400 price difference between the 2 lens so I was thinking really hard which one to get. After thinking so hard for so many days, I got the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 lens which has a higher price but has a much better quality when it comes to the image quality.

75mm UV Lens 
When I bought the lens, I was recommended to get a UV lens to go with it so that it will protect the lens. And therefore I got the UV lens for my Sigma lens.

Anello Backpack
I was using my old backpack for more than one year and it has started to deteriorate so much since it's always carrying my old and heavy MacBook Pro and my textbooks so I needed a new backpack. I wanted a backpack that fits my laptop, and have a front pocket for easy reach and have two side pockets for my water bottle and my umbrella. So, when I saw it, I thought it was perfect. One, it's black, and two, it has all the requirements that I needed.

Daiso sheet masks in Pearl Barley, Camellia Oil, Black Pearl, Horse Oil, Sakura, Matcha
Sheet Masks are a life saver to me when it comes to picking up the skin from dull and dehydrated skin. So I keep looking for sheet masks that I can use daily and not breaking my bank. I like to try new sheet masks from various brands so that I can choose which ones that work and which didn't. I was so excited when I saw Daiso have sheet masks. They had sheet masks for 7 days last time which I adored so I'm looking forward to try them all.

June 2017: Haul
May 2017: Beauty Haul
May.... In this blogpost, I wanted to share what I bought during the month of May. May was the month where Sephora has the VIB sale of 20% off from all products within Sephora catalog so I managed to snatch a few items from it. Others are my necessities which I bought when I needed at that time.

Tsubaki Extra Moist Conditioner
My Loreal hair conditioner has finally run out so I decided to buy a new conditioner. One of my friend is a huge fan of this Tsubaki range of shampoo and conditioner, and she was planning to buy the shampoo and the drugstore has the promotion of buy 1 get 1 free so we decided to buy both conditioner and shampoo and half the price within ourselves. I was so excited to try this conditioner since I was a huge fan of the scent.

Listerine Natural Green Tea Mouth Wash
I was into using mouth wash ever since I tried this mouth wash a while back and I keep buying again whenever I ran out of it. This purchase was one of the things I buy when I ran out of the previous product.

Dr. Bronner's Castile Bar Soap in Peppermint
I ran out of my shower gel and I wanted to try Dr. Bronner's soaps since they are very popular and vegan and organic. I wanted to try using products that are organic so that's why I decided to try this product.

Next, we have 2 products that I bought from Sephora during the VIB sale.
Becca Ever-Matte Pore-less Priming Perfecter
I'm so excited to use this primer. I am currently using the Benefit Porefessional and the Touch In Sol No Poreblem Primer so I am yet to use this primer. I heard a lot of good news about this product for oily skin which have large pores (like mine) so I'm so excited to try this very soon.

Zoeva Rose Golden Eyeshadow Palette
I fell in love with the eyeshadow palette because of the colours. I love rose gold colours so rose gold palette was in my wishlist for the longest time. I saw the reviews and the swatches from other bloggers and vloggers so I decided to buy it and try it.
