Life In A Nutshell #76
Hello my little mermaids, how are you? How’s the love month been treating you? I must say, mine’s been pretty swell. I know that I’ve been out of the loop lately but I don’t mind because it feels good to disconnect from the Internet and focus on other things I’ve been meaning to do.
Lately, I’ve been…
Reading. I’ve joined the bandwagon and started reading Divergent by Veronica Roth. I’m still in the early chapters though, so there’s not much to say. And just in case you’re wondering, the last book I’ve read was Eleanor & Park.
Watching. New movies, National Geographic, and the like. I’m outdated with my US TV series though. I’ll probably try and catch up next month when I finally have a decent Internet connection.
Playing. I’ve recently installed PCSX on my Macbook Air. I wanted to continue my Chrono Cross game but execute that my copy of the memory card wasn’t updated, so I decided to play Final Fantasy 8 instead.
Working. I’ve got a list to complete but I’m 80% done with my blog backlogs, so expect new entries by March! :)
Thinking. I’ve been thinking about several passion projects I want to execute for 2014. It’s too early to say anything about these projects, but I hope I’ll be successful in fulfilling them (I probably need a order management workflow). Also thinking about things I want to buy online, like stuff from http://www.katydid.com.
Appreciating. I took an unannounced and indefinite blog hiatus but I’m incredibly thankful to everyone who still took the time to visit and read my blog. <3
The Every 20-Something Guide
1. It’s okay not to know what to do with your life right now.
Truth is, the “right time” to know what to do with your life should’ve happened in college. But the problem with college is that we’re so focused on passing the grade that by the time graduation rolls around, we’re absolutely clueless what our future holds. But that’s the beauty of being a 20-something. You still don’t know a lot of things but you’re wiser now than you were 5 years ago. You now have the proper knowledge and skills, you just have to figure out what you want to do with it.
2. The world doesn’t revolve around you.
Drop your ego. As early as now, it’s important not to think that the world revolves around you. You should never ever think that the world owes you something, or that you should always be everyone’s center of attention. Don’t let self entitlement get the best of you.
Basic Makeup Essentials
I’m taking a quick break from all that travel talk because the more I talk about England, the more I wish I was there. So, let’s talk about the things that makes a girl like me happy — hair, makeup and skin care! :3
Anyhoo, I thought I should go over the basics because I know a lot of you are interested in makeup but really have no idea where to begin. This post was inspired by Everygirl’s 18 Beauty Essentials. But in my opinion, the products they’ve featured were a bit too pricey for the regular Everygirl. So, I made my own version! :) Now, you don’t have to buy all the items indicated on this list. Just purchase only you need and that’s within your budget (but please, don’t resort to fake products!).
John Frieda Luminous Glaze Review
With the current state of my hair, shiny hair sounds impossible. Cellophane treatments, unfortunately, are too expensive here in Singapore so I Googled for alternatives. The Luminous Glaze is John Frieda’s is a hair glaze and a home solution for salons’ expensive cellophane treatments. The bottle cost $7.99 + shipping, which I think is a bit expensive but $140 cheaper than salons. Oh, for the pursuit of better hair!
