Quick Talk: Half a semester done/ Missed a deadline / random 3D stuff

27 November 2018

Hey yo! No reviews today and title picture really isn't meant for click-bait purposes but since I couldn't find something to use, I had to anyhow grabbed some yummy pic I took when I was dining at Dotty's Pastry TTDI(so yea, at least I provided info on where to find it😅😁😂)!

As I was saying, hello kawans! I'm currently on Week 9 of the semester (survived half of it yay) and yesterday was my first 'Monday blues' in a very long while because I have officially missed a deadline (usually I'm a day early! Rare occasions would be few hours before time's up!). My school has a policy(?) where the lecturers are told not to grade/critique your work if you've missed the deadline but thank god my lecturer was kind enough to give me an extension😭. I'm glad he gave the extension otherwise I probably won't be able to finish this week's work because it's a continuation of last week's!! Now that I've "caught up" with my "missed deadline" I kinda just wanted to sit down and write a blog post.

Usually right after finishing one assignment, I'd take some time out to write blog. Lately I would just pick up any beauty reviews in my drafts to write/continue writing any long-forgotten travelogues(still not done with last year's Australia lol) but today I felt like writing something related to what I'm currently doing, and because it's one of those "quick but not-so-quick chats", it's gonna be lengthy😅😂! Nonetheless, I hope you guys enjoy reading.

Althea's Petal Velvet Sunaway review

21 November 2018

Hello friends! Last month Althea released a new addition to their expanding line of beauty products(as I'm writing this, they've just dropped another! I'm sure you guys could probably already guess what prop I'll be using for the upcoming product shoot *wink wink* hehe). Back to today's star, if you're following Althea's instagram, you've probably already heard of their Petal Velvet Sunaway which is a sunscreen with SPF 50+ PA++++ and I guess you could also say that it's an addition to their 'Petal Velvet series' I've talked about previously!

They sent me their sunscreen last month and after testing it out over the month, I'm here to share my thoughts on it with you guys! I will be talking about how it looks and feels on my skin so I hope it helps you guys to make a decision if you're currently eyeing this on Althea's website :D

Random collective shopping haul part 1

31 October 2018

Hi kawans!! Happy Halloween! If you're looking for a spooky post, unfortunately this isn't one. Instead, this is going to be a 2 part blog post where in this part I'll be talking about a mixture of stuff I hauled over the past few months and the next part will be dedicated to a few purchases of mine from Althea. It'll be too long for me to combine my general haul + Althea haul so I figured that I might as well just break this into a 2 part post.

Before anything else, here's a quick life update! I've recently went back to being a student through an online diploma program. I'll be pretty busy and sleep deprived again. I'm in week 5 and I'm trying my best to meet my assignment deadlines. The school isn't giving me too much work but generally I'd consider myself to be really weak in this particular subject so it's definitely gonna take a while for me to cope with the course work.

Now let's take a look at what are some random goodies/necessities I bought over the past few months!

Innisfree Second Skin Mask - Soothing First Impressions

5 September 2018

Annyeong kawans! The Innisfree Second Skin Mask has been a sheet mask I've been eager to try for a very long time and I finally got my hands on one yay! I'm not sure when did Innisfree released their Second Skin Mask series but over the past few months I've been hearing a lot of talk about em. I got mine from Innisfree Pavilion KL but it should be available at all Innisfree shops. It took me so long to decide whether or not if I want to buy this mask you guys! I literally went into Innisfree, left because I couldn't decide, shared a Mango Snowflake with my bestie, and after that went back into innisfree to purchase it.

Anyways, now that I've tried one, I'm finally ready to share my first impressions review with you guys!

Althea Addiction #8: From samples to full-sized & more [haul + #AltheaAngels]

13 August 2018

Hello friends! I know it's been a long while since my last #AltheaAddiction post, but hey, I'm finally back with one + some exciting news to share!! Over the past couple months I've been controlling how much I splurge on beauty products so I've only been getting products that I need and usually only when it's on sale(so you guys probably only see my mini one item hauls on my IG stories haha). This time round I received some shopping credits from Althea thus deciding it was time to treat myself a little and snag some products I've been eager to try out for a long time!
