happy thanksgiving 2014

*image from google*

despite i did thankful lists weekly,i still felt that i need to post a proper thanksgiving's post for today.

singapore did not celebrate thanksgiving,this ain't a popular celebration here and no much peoples might recognize this holiday too..today i think a lots!! like a lots! i used to feel jealous for my relatives and friends that leaded better life than i do or jealous over simplest things that they owned and i don't / can't afford to buy.i tend to see their happiness side and neglecting my own..and i always felt i have nothing and i like to compare with others..honestly this bad habits leaded me living in miserable life.for quite some times

as i grew older,i witnessed death, deceased and sorrows in this world. i started to wake up from previous mindset and looked at myself deep into mirror..looking at what i owned, looking at peoples around me, looking at peoples who cares me more than i did..and i found out that i'm richer than some peoples in the world..

i have a caring parents..
i have supportive siblings..
i have lovely mister who love me more than i did..
i have a stable job
i have education to increase knowledges
i have funny classmates
i have understanding coworkers
i have rented comfortable space for mister and i to live in
i have money to survive
i have everything..

and i will be grateful for what i have now..

my favorite perfumes // daisy marc jacobs & gucci envy me


i can't denied i love love love perfumes more than anything..i like my clothes and body to have pleasant scents throughout the day.and actually i enjoyed those compliments from someone nearby saying that i smells great! currently,i'm a proud owner of these two beauties: gucci envy me & daisy marc jacobs
few years back, one of my girlfriend introduced gucci envy me to me and ever since that day onwards,i had fallen in love with "her" and i guess my love will be forever since this is my third bottles.envy me was created in a combination of fruity-floral scents since 2004.whenever i went out with this fragrance,i felt confident and sexy..and it is long-lasting too! don't you agreed with me that the bottle design is perfection? definitely worth to invest a bottle..
my second lover would be daisy from marc jacobs.mister gave me as christmas's present last year and i totally adored it so much.the scent are floral-fresh, feminine and sophisticated..i love the design of the bottle and it always brighten up my morning.

my current skin care routine // black paint

hey girls,

did you facing some skin problems like clogged pores, blackheads, blemishes, etc? i'm blessed that i have a great skin with little conditions here.my skin is quite dull, huge pores and some blackheads.so,am i still considering having great skin?i blame stress instead of laziness.

gentle introduction for black paint:

recently i had being introduced to "black paint" (ooppss..not the black color paint that i meant here) black paint is an organic skin care brand established in kyoto 15 years ago by a loving mother named miyuki maeda.the founder had successfully found the formulas to solve skin problems rooting from skin pores by leveraging the power of nature.the skin care are made from organic materials which are blended for more than 100 types of plant oils, more than 50 types of essentials oils and kishu binchotan charcoal, all known to have powerful beauty effects since ancient times.
all the black paint's products were packed and sealed safely in this cute box.and i'm so grateful to the sample store's team to arrange courier to my office since i was unable to collect from them during working hours.this box worth $260 with black paint's products, they are pretty generous in letting us to try out for at least a month for better results
there were plenty of products in there.firstly, i was quite confused with the steps but since they provided instructions and steps in cd, everything seem pretty easy peasy.
the products available in the box are:
black paint face soap-to remove oil and dirt without stripping away skin's essential moisture and leaving skin feeling fresh and silky smooth
 black konjac sponge-removes blackheads and oil effectively giving skin radiant looks.
best water (aka toner)-nourishes and hydrates skin with 30 minerals that penetrate deeply to restore skin's barrier and prevent moisture loss.best results,apply on facial paper mask for better absorption

oil water rose (aka lotion/oil essence)-has dual layers emulsion soothers and softens with vitamins,anti-oxidants and anti-inflammations

water cream (aka moisturizer)-promotes moisture retention and builds resistance to environmental pollutants

how to use it:
soften the soap with warm water and apply directly on entire face. this soap can be used on dry skin or over makeup too as makeup remover..the soap must melt into a paste-like texture for easy spreading.oh and please avoid eyes. massaged lightly and rinse off with water


 soak the sponge completely in water until totally soft,massage your face in circular motion..
use 3 to 5 pumps of best water on the skin for hydration.pat gently for better absorption.you can apply on a facial paper mask and treat it as mask
shake oil water rose until the color turn whitish..apply 3 to 5 pumps volume onto skin to nourish my pores
take a pearl-size amount of water cream and spread onto skin.the cream will transforms into water droplets upon application to protect the pores.wait till face dries before applying makeup

my reviews: 

my skin felt really fresh and tight after the facial soap.the tightness was due to the size of the pores had being closen up.but during the facial time with the soap might be pretty messy too,as the soap is some sort like sesame paste.if they are able to make them into tube..that's would be great! i superb love the sponge..it was really gentle on skin and exfoliated my skin well.once best water applied,my skin smoothed up very fast.i, immediately felt the effects of the moisture.this results was quite amazing!! same feelings happened again when i applied oil water rose..the smell was really great! i quite worried that water cream might gave oily effect after application. yet, after 2 hours of application, my skin still felt fresh,supple and moisturized to the max.this is definitely one of my favorite brand to go..

daily style: comfort is a new style

an outfit post once in a while felt great!! though i ain't fashionista

few weekends ago,i went to re-contract my phone plan and decided to grab iphone 6 with the package offered. if you're singaporean or have some relatives/friends here, you might heard of "singaporean is good in queuing"..any places,any time,any where..queue is long.i got my number ticket and i had to wait for 5 hours before my turn..i guess i'm "queuing master" too. and before i was out from my room,i knew i had to be comfortable.maxi dress is the only piece in my wardrobe that i felt great and comfy in.

and if you don't mind,here's a few photos taken with my iphone 5..

happy halloween 2014 // clarke quay

every year, mister and i would visited clarke quay as this was the place where all the halloween's atmosphere and spookiest ghosts appeared..last year mister said he would love to wear costumes and join the halloween's event but we ended up the most "normal human beings" in clarke quay. blame the workloads and stress and school! quite disappointing but we still went down to snap some photos with the costumes.we danced little bits when the concert started and before we went off,we bumped into my ex-college mates with his wife.glad that we were able to catch up on each others life after a while.

here's a few photos of our time in spooky night below..









and here's to the cutest & the most creative ever halloween's outfits below..
conversations between mister and i before we went off..

mister : what you wish to wear for halloween?
me: perhaps, sailormoon?
mister : good idea..

after a while..

me: but i would love to be olive, popeye the sailor man's wife
mister: but, i don't have muscle..
me: you will be the popeye without spinach supply
mister: .......
