10 Goals for 2017: Did I Achieve Them? + Goals for 2018

Hi, uh, I know you can probably see the tumbleweeds rolling around my barren desert of a blog, but here I am, right before 2017 ends, to let you all know that a. I'm not dead, b. neither is this blog and c.  I achieved some of my 2017 goals and miserably flopped the rest of them and you all deserve an update on how they went. So, let's go!

September Life Update: Uni Life

Hi guys! We're finally nearing the end of September and coming to the fourth (!!!) quarter of 2017, and I think it's due time for a life update on here. I'm finally settled back into the routine of daily life after coming back from Seoul, and so far, everything's going better than I expected.

..wait, my life is actually perfectly fine and normal and going in a positive direction for once?????? AMAZING.

Dessert Laboratory (디저트연구소) @ Hongdae

Hongdae, Seoul, South Korea

I spend an unhealthy amount of time on Facebook scrolling through food pages (if you haven't liked the 오늘 뭐 먹지? page already, what are you doing with your life?!) and tagging my friends in the posts of the foods that I'm craving. The beautiful atmosphere of this place and the famous peach cheesecake shown online is definitely what prompted Chelsea and I to pay a visit to 디저트연구소, or Dessert Laboratory in Hongdae.

Etude House Play Color Eyes Wine Party Palette | Review & Swatches

Hi everyone! I'm back with another beauty review and this time I'm going to be talking about the newest addition to Etude House's Play Color Eyes palettes - the Wine Party palette. I picked this up during my trip to Korea and got to play around with it for a bit, so I'll be giving my full review and opinion on it (plus sharing a look I did with it in the end!).

August '17 Playlist

I know I literally put up a playlist post 2 weeks ago but here's another one, because somehow we've already reached the end of August! It's still pretty crazy how fast time is going - my summer break has officially ended and I'm back in uni now, which is.. okay. Mostly tiring, though (I can't believe some of my classes end at 6pm.. what is my life..) 😑 Anyway, Spotify and I have been best buddies this whole month (since I'm discovering a whole lot of new music on there), and I'm really excited to share what I've been into nowadays!

Trying Korean Diet Instant Noodles (Cup Noodle 컵누들 Review)

I'm sure the one food that we all crave (but avoid) when we're dieting is instant noodles. Such a simple, easy to make and delicious meal, yet the calorie count is just too high to justify eating them during a diet ;_; Which is why I was so excited when I found this brand of instant noodles in Korea that's only 120kcal per cup!

July '17 Playlist

Hi.. I'm posting my July playlist halfway through August.. just because I can.. :-) Anyway, I can't believe it's August already - 2017 is going by way too fast and I lowkey feel like I've not done much at all this year.. But besides that, there's definitely been a whole lot of good music releases so far (especially this month), so let's talk about what I've been into.

Paris + London Haul 2017

It's time for another haul! I know, I know.. This might be a little boring because I didn't really buy that much when I was in Europe, but I was saving my money to spend more in Korea next week ;) Which is understandable, right? I originally wanted to shop for clothes but my haul ended up being mostly beauty products, clearly..

Paris Trip Summer '17 #OOTD

Paris, France

Like every other trip I go on, I spent the week before my Europe trip meticulously planning outfits to wear, so I'm really excited to show them here today! I kind of got lazy when it came to dressing up in London, so I'll only talk about what I wore in Paris. It's such a beautiful city where every location is photogenic and Instagram-worthy, so I basically took a lot of pictures. Of.. myself. Yeah.

By the way, I wear a lot of Forever 21. You've been warned.

What's in My Travel Makeup Bag

Hey guys! I meant to upload this before I went abroad but I messed up and didn't get to post it till now.. It's been a while since I've gone on holiday (and by a while I mean.. only half a year ago lol) so I wanted to share the contents of my travel makeup bag today. I find that the bigger my collection gets, the harder it is for me to pare down my essentials. I used to be able to fit everything in this makeup bag no problem, but now it's getting tougher to zip it up cos it's so full.. -_-

June '17 Playlist

Hi everyone! It has truly been a hot minute since I last put up a blog post, and I apologize for that :( I meant to post a couple while I was traveling but I got pretty caught up (aka, I was busy running around and eating lots of bread lol). Since I'm home again, my blog schedule will be going back to normal, and thank you for sticking around to read my posts, if you still are! I'm a little late this time (which I'm mad about) but nevertheless, here's what I've been into in terms of music this month.

I SEOUL U Concert @ KLCC Convention Centre

It's been about 4 days since my finals ended and I've been bored out of my mind.. but at least I have the time to finally update my blog and talk about the I SEOUL U concert that I attended two weeks ago! I was really excited to be there because although I've already seen Red Velvet and Yesung live before, it was my first time seeing NCT 127 (and you guys already know how much I love them) and they definitely didn't disappoint.

May '17 Playlist

Hi! I probably shouldn't be blogging right now since I literally just started my finals week but oh well.. I only have 3 more papers left and I haven't posted in two weeks so it should be fine... right? :D I've been pretty busy and (honestly speaking) feeling somewhat unmotivated when it comes to blogging recently but I really wanted to make sure that I got this post up for this month, at the very least. I haven't been satisfied with any of the content that I've been putting out lately but I'm finally getting to travel again this summer and I can't wait to blog about everything I'm getting up to again!

Anyway, without further ado, let's get into the music I've been into this month.

I'm going to tag my friends Chelsea and Karina to do this as well. Read on to find out more about me and my makeup preferences..!

Botanica & Co @ Bangsar South

Happy May, everybody! It's been a really long time since I've done a blog post about food (crazy, right?) and I'm finally back to talk about Botanica & Co. I'm sure most of you have been to or heard of this place, since it's such an Instagram-worthy place - and for good reason!

April '17 Playlist

Hey everyone, April is pretty much over and it's gonna be May. :D Time for me to share my music favourites of the month again! Can you believe that 1/3 of the year has already passed? Geez.. I feel like the older I get, the faster time gets. Anyway, without further ado, let's get into what songs I've been loving this month!

Laneige Pure Radiant Shadow in No.10 Rosebay Garden | Review & Swatches

Welcome to my very first beauty review blog post! Today I'm going to review the Pure Radiant Shadow eyeshadow quad by Laneige in the shade Rosebay Garden. I received this as a birthday gift from my aunt and from the moment I got it, I was way too excited to start using it! Featuring plenty of different yet beautiful combinations the Pure Radiant Shadows are described on the Laneige website as a "ultra-fine, highly pigmented shadow" with a "moist, soft texture", and are perfect for creating a nice, put-together look with just four shadows.

My 18th Birthday

I'm officially 18 (and it feels great to be able to say that)! Honestly, there isn't really much of a difference to me, but I can do more things legally without feeling bad now, I guess. #goodrolemodel

I'm not a fan of celebrating my own birthday with big parties (the last time I had one was for my 15th birthday, and that wasn't even that big) so I'm really happy with how my birthday went this year! It was one of the happiest birthdays I've had in a long time, and I'm forever grateful to everyone who made it special :)

18 Things I'm Thankful For

Hi guys! I'm so happy that my blogging schedule aligned so well that I can put up a post today. While I believe in giving thanks every single day, in our fast-paced world and lifestyles we never really find time to do so. Since today is officially my 18th birthday, I want to stop and reflect on the things in my life that I'm truly grateful for right now. :)

March '17 Playlist

Hi everyone! I'm a bit late on this blog post again.. since I've been busy recently I was going to put this off for a couple more days but I realised that it's the last day of March and I should write this asap. T_T Many apologies in advance..

Today I'm going to share my playlist for the month! March went by a lot quicker than I thought - this year is really going by way too fast. I still can't believe it's almost April (my birthday month!!!!!!!)!

Makeup Look That I've Been Doing Recently (Hooded Lids)

Remember how I said I wasn't really good at eye makeup? I decided to try and change that recently and started putting my Naked 3 palette to good use! My eye shape is still kind of hard to work with and I've been trying out all sorts of looks (because as most of you know, I used to do winged brown eyeliner every day and while it looked okay, I didn't realize how small it made my eyes looked -__-) but I think I've finally found one that works for me.

How I Edit My Instagram Photos

Hi! Sorry I haven't been around for a while, life has been kind of crazy and I didn't have much to blog about.. Hopefully I can get back on track with my blogging schedule because I really enjoy it so much :)

I care way too much about my Instagram photos and how they look - honestly, it's kind of useless lmao but I love having a nice, cohesive feed and after years of trying I think I finally have a proper theme down! Today I'm going to show you how I take my pictures and edit them.

February '17 Playlist

We've finally made it to the end of February, so I'm here to share my top favourite songs of this month with you guys! This month was pretty good in terms of K-pop comebacks and discovering new music. I totally don't regret getting a proper Spotify membership now, I'm obsessed and I can't believe I went so long without one..

Lip Product Collection + Swatches

My all time favourite makeup product definitely has to be my lip products! If I had to pick only one kind of makeup product to wear forever, I'd... well, I'd pick bb cream first HAHAHA but lipsticks are definitely a close second :B I've mentioned before that eye makeup is not my strong suit so I love to keep the focus on my lip colour. Although it's rather small (for my standards, I suppose), I'm quite proud of my little collection and today I've swatched them all for you guys and I'll show you my favourite formulas/shades :)

Chinese New Year 2017 #OOTD

Pahang, Malaysia

Chinese New Year has come and gone again, and while it may not have been as eventful compared to my more exciting CNY celebrations growing up, it was still great getting to go back to my hometown to visit my relatives and get my angpao HAHAH. It did end up being pretty hectic due to me falling sick halfway (thus not being able to dress up for day 3 T_T).. but that's another story -__- I think the best part about CNY is getting to shop for new clothes and I definitely had a lot of fun putting these two outfits together this year!

Tuesday, 7 February 2017

Hello, February

I say this and I will continue saying this all the time, but wow, time is flying like crazy! It's a new month, and since I missed a day on my blogging schedule last week, I think it's due time for a quick update here.

January '17 Playlist

Time flies! It's already the last day of January, which means I've successfully stuck to my blogging schedule for a whole month already (that's one thing on my resolution list that I've been doing well on, at least :p).

Today I want to try something new on my blog - at the end of every month, I'm going to compile all the music that I enjoyed and listened to a lot that month and write about it here. I know the year just started, but January was definitely a great month in terms of discovering new music that I liked! :)

What's In My Bag?

Hello everyone! How is your CNY going so far? I'm currently at my grandparents' house in Pahang, attempting to blog with this shitty wifi (oh well, better bad wifi than no wifi at all) but it's been going all right for me. Is anyone else feeling kind of bored during CNY..? T__T I feel like the older I get, the less fun it becomes.. 

Today I'm going to get a little more personal and show you what I carry around with me basically every day. I'll refrain from including the trash in my bag (wrappers, receipts and general junk that I like to toss in there while I'm out) but trust me, it's usually pretty messy.

My Favourite Youtubers

I'm being completely honest when I say that I spend almost all of my time on Youtube - and I wish I was kidding. I'm not the kind of person who can sit down and watch TV shows/dramas and stuff, and I prefer to watch a variety of content, which is what makes Youtube so perfect for me. It's an addiction, really.. I watch many different kinds of channels, from daily vlogs to beauty videos, so today I want to share my favourite channels to watch with you!

Korea Haul 2016: Fashion/Beauty/K-pop

Finally got around to taking pictures of all the stuff I got in Korea this time around to show you guys! :) This haul is mostly gifts and such from my friends (thank you guys, I love you so much T__T), as well as other stuff that I asked my friends to get for me while I was still in KL and picked up when I got there. Please excuse my editing/photography skills in this post, I'm still a noob with my DSLR :B Hopefully it'll get better with time..

Flying Noodles at Underground Société

The last time I visited Underground Société was in May 2015 (I talked about my last visit in my very first blog post!) and I was pretty surprised to see how much it's changed since then. The restaurant itself was renovated and they added these Flying Noodles to the menu, which I've been dying to try ever since I heard that they served it in Malaysia.

Seoul Trip Winter 2016: Week 2

Seoul, South Korea

Click HERE to read part 1!

It's finally time to talk about my second (and final) week of my Korea trip. I feel like this week was a bit more chill than the first - like I mentioned, I didn't do many touristy things since I already lived here before, but I managed to re-visit a bunch of my favourite places and I want to share them here! :)

10 Goals for 2017

Hello everyone! The first week of the new year is almost over (already?!), and I thought it was appropriate to talk about the things that I want to achieve this year. I believe setting goals for yourself is essential in order to live your life to the fullest (in fact, I gave a speech on the importance of setting goals in english class last semester.. LOL), and sharing them publicly gives you credibility and forces you to stick to them, so let me share my 10 goals for the year with you.

Cafe de ONE PIECE @ Hongdae

Hongdae, Seoul, South Korea

It's my first post in the new year, happy 2017!

I'm always going to be honest on my blog, so here is me making an honest confession - I know next to nothing about One Piece. I can only recognize Luffy and Chopper, and even then I'm not sure what kind of role they play in the anime. So.. why exactly did I visit the One Piece cafe?
