THOUGHTSY THURSDAY: Alive!

Yes I am! Super duper sorry for the lack of updates girls! As some of you might now, I have been traveling quite frequent these past few weeks, and I just couldn't find the time to sit on my work desk and blog!

Can you imagine I have not turned on my laptop for almost 2 weeks??

T.T

As a quick update, I am currently busy recording my hosting episodes for SIS and to let you all know, I no longer work as a Fashion & Lifestyle Writer at Aquila Style magazine. Even more so, my days are quite packed till the end of this year.

And now, I'm pulling an all nighter to reply those hundreds and hundreds of overflowing emails in my inbox! Wish me luck! :D

SHOPPING: October Haul

It's that time of the month again! No, it's not the P word haha.. Been shopping a bit this past month, so let's start our girly sharing session shall we? Imagine you're all in my room and we're chit chatting here and there and I share you the things I bought which I am loving so you guys could get a glimpse or two about what this buddy of yours have been spilling her bank account on XD

(Links available on the names of each of the products!)



Nars Audacious Lipstick in Audrey
I mean, who doesn't wanna try out Nars' products, right? So this was basically my first Nars purchase ever, and I don't think I'll look back again! Bought it in a deep red colour (no surprise there, Shea) because I find myself using my red lippies to its full potential, meaning I finish them up quite fast compared to other colours. The texture is creamy matte with subtle moisture. So it's a definite plus!




Esclare Triple Stemcell Serum
Discovering the awesome thing this serum does in just one small bottle, I majorly loved the fact that the serum covers most in its product. It's a toner, moisturiser, day cream and night cream all in one! Can everything in the world please take this similar concept?? And for a frequent traveler like me, this product is just heaven sent for its portability and small in size. Anyhoo, I applied the serum at night after I'm done cleaning and washing up my face and leave on overnight. The feeling I get every morning is profoundly different than of usual cause I feel that it helps provide a healthier sensation that lasts for the entire day the following day. The triple stem cell ingredient I'm sure is the culprit for making my skin feel all young and supple. Applying makeup will be a breeze cause I know I have 'prepped' it up the previous night, so for me, this was the best choice for this month! :D




Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water Makeup Remover
I am a TRUE fan of the Sephora's makeup remover, specifically not just because of it's actual product, but because of the mouth opening of the bottle. It's wide, and has a sink-like base so that when you press your cotton pad on it, 50% of your cotton pad will be widely soaked with the product. Meaning you'll get ample amounts of remover on your skin! I loveeeee this feature to bits! It's so different than from squirting makeup remover liquids on normal-mouthed bottles from other brands. So yeah! :D




Stories of Repentance book compiled by Muhammad Abduh Mughawiri
Came across this book at Dakwah Bookstore the other day during my fortnightly bookstore visiting routine and I was hooked. I've told you time and time again that I adore reading sirah (history) of the prophets as it gives me a sense of laid-backness. I mean, it's like you're reading a story book, right? And who doesn't love listening or reading to stories? So this page turner book caught me immediately when I saw it. It tells the tales of the people during our Prophets' time and to how they repented. This book not only motivates me to always always repent, but to remind me how everyone indeed is human, and we can't run from doing mistakes, even those in yesteryears. The best word I can describe for this book is HOPE.




Milktee X Sometime Swift bag (Launching on the 30th October!)
This just came in the mail yesterday and I was frantically out of my mind when it came! I brought it up to my room, and unpacked the parcel and lo and behold, this beauty is now in my hands! I have a thing for all things Swift (read: Taylor Swift and Suzuki Swift), so this bag was another addition to my Swift craze! I chose in this duo-toned colour of baby blue and navy blue cause I don't think I have a blue coloured bag such as this one. Can't wait to wear it with my outfits!




Cushions from Cushion On
I'm guessing you might've seen this from one of my instagram posts (if you don't then follow me already! :D). I particularly loveeeee the world map cushion cause I feel like it captions me the best cause you know me and my so-called-wanting-to-travel-the-world-dream-which-is-so-not-rare-from-anyone-elses..haha.. The cushions go so well with the interior decor of my room and I find myself hugging them whenever I have the chance to since I got it! Me lav!




Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette
After some serious thinking (that lasted a whole 6 months), I figured I should just get me my own Naked Palette from Urban Decay. And out of the 3 Naked palettes, I think I'm loving the 2nd one more as I myself had an accidental encounter where I went to Lyna's wedding in Kedah in August, and forgot to bring my makeup pouch! I borrowed some makeup stuff from my friend who was staying in the same homestay, and tried on her Naked 2 palette for the first time..and that was it. That was the final mark in which made me say yes to the palette. Of course, since it's a bit pricey, I still contemplated a bit, but finally got it this month to help me during my traveling makeup sessions for the SIS tv programme I'm hosting heee.. See, a girl's gotta have a list of justifications for her to finally get something! XD

STYLE SUNDAY: Exquisite Touch

Forcing myself to head out in a full on exquisite ensemble wasn't that all hard. Wearing a simple striped tee and jeans meant for sure that I needed something to throw over it. This lucky pale pink scale-like sequinned sleeves number was subtly calling out my name as I ran my fingers along the aligned hangers in the closet. And the result was exactly what I was expecting for.
