Mr DIY Haul

Mr DIY Haul


In today's post, I'm going to share with you guys what I bought at Mr. DIY. Mr. DIY is a store that I will never stop from visiting just because there have tons selections of items that you might need from school to home supplies. Not to mention, the price is quite affordable too. I bet you already heard about this store, right? If you ask me which is the best between Daiso and Mr. DIY, I will answer Mr. DIY straight away. Why? Because I just love it. I even spend around one hour walking to each isle and looking for new items. I rarely went out from the store with empty hands. So glad that this store is near to my place so I can go there everytime I want to. Hehe

Without more rambling, let's just take a look at the items that I bought from MR. DIY. Shall we?



The main reason why I get this bunch of tapes because of my planner. My planner was so empty, dull and not cheerful or colourful as I want it to be. So I think by pasting a tape will make it look better and I'm right. It looks more alive now. Imma happy girl! Plus the tapes look so cute, how can I resist that? 

Mr DIY Butterfly Hook

This is so random. I chose this up because I want to hang my fairy lights that I bought in May and still didn't hang and still in the box cause I don't know how to decorate it. And I'm sure that I will need this hook when I'm about to hang the fairy lights, right?

Mr DIY Card Holder

Just another random thingy. And of course, I have a reason behind it. It just my precaution for all the card that I owned. Basically, I'm not the type of person who brings a handbag whenever I'm going out for a short amount of time. A pouch is all I need. I put all the necessaries items on it and I'm ready to go. But the only problem is, by doing that the potential for my cards to be scratch by the others things on the pouch is higher. So I think by placing all the cards on this card holder will help me through that. Plus I can protect my identity card from turning colour to yellowish greenish colour just like my old one since it is not exposed too much to the air.

Mr DIY Contact Paper

This is my life saver. This is what I used for my background for most of my blog post photos. The marble contact paper in the photo is my backup just in case I can't get a new one anymore. And it happened. I recently went to Mr. DIY that I usually went to and guess what? The marble contact paper was now sold out and they restocked with the purple coloured one which I think not fit for my background photos. I'm so glad that I picked this up before. While the other contact paper, I used it to paste it on my beauty table. Even though it is cheap but the quality is superb. Nobody can deny it, trust me.

Mr DIY Brush Cleaning Mat

I saved the best for the last. Hehe. This is my favourite amongst of all the items that I bought. I have been needing something that I can be used for cleaning my makeup brush for a long time. I was intending to get a brush egg cleaning brush at first but after noticing this at the store I guess this one is way better. From what I see, this is literally a dupe for Sigma Beauty Brush Cleansing Mat. I really really recommend you guys who love makeup and using brushes to get this. It works wonders and the process of cleaning my brushes became easier than before. Love it!

There are some of the items that I didn't put in this post because I already used it like stickers, bottle spray that I used to put my face toner, hair bands, note books and more. So yeah, hope you enjoy reading today's post. Have a nice weekend, everyone!


What are your favourite items that you bought from Mr. DIY? Let me know!

My Acne Journey + Current Daily Skincare Routine

My Acne Journey + Current Daily Skincare Routine


If you still remember, I did this kind of post before around last year. [Link: here] It was a long journey for me. I have changed my skincare products and routines for quite some time just to find something that works and good for my sensitive, oily, combination and acne-prone skin! Yeah, it is a lot. I have tried so many products from local products to drugstores one before. Some of them were good, some of them were not. That is the reason why I have to keep changing my skincare routine just to find some products that suit my skin conditions by trying a new one until I found one that works best on my skin. I noticed that now I did add some new products to my skincare routine while trying to get rid some other products from last year.

As I mentioned before, I have used so many products before either locals to drugstores one. My past cleanser was from Mewangi. I love using it, it helps my acne problems quite well. Until one day I change to another bar soap cleanser which from honey, my skin was drastically changed. Last month, I got massive breakouts which I don't even know why and how it happened. Maybe because of my new face cleanser or hormones or eating habits, I don't know. There are lots of bump of acnes around my cheeks areas. It is not a normal acne, but it is more to like a cyst acnes where it is itchy, sore and red at that point. My skin was looking like a prawn that just has been cooked! But the weird thing is my Mom was using the same bar soap and nothing happened to her. I guess it just my problem. Maybe I'm not suitable or allergy with honey. Who knows? Long story short, I decided to change my skincare routine to a new one.


Makeup Remover

I currently using Nivea Cleansing Water at the moment. The one that I bought from Lazada Malaysia before. You guys can check for more information here. This product is good at removing makeup including waterproof and non-waterproof one. It just works wonders as Garnier Micellar Water but this Nivea one does sting my eyes everytime I tried to remove my eye makeup especially mascara. If I had to choose either one of them, I will pick Garnier Micellar Water as it is fragrant free, does not irritate my skin and does a good job at removing my makeup. Highly recommended!

My Acne Journey + Current Daily Skincare Routine

Cleanser

So, I went to a drugstore to buy a cleanser from Cetaphil which is Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. I heard that this brand is good considering it is dermatologist recommended. The next day after I bought this cleanser, I then use it right away. How excited I am to try this product and to get rid all of the mess on my skin. I don't see any changes for the next few days using it but I noticed that my acne was slowly cool down. This cleanser does not sting my eyes, it is moisturising while cleansing my face, and there is no foam at all. (which is weird for some reasons). I was a bit uncomfortable at first using this cleanser since it does not bubble up but after a few tries, I get used to it. It works well either you cleanse your face with water or without water. But you know me, I have to make sure that it is clean so I chose to wash my face after every cleansing.

Toner

After I switched my skin care to Mewangi I chose to skip from applying a toner since my skin was quite normal at that time. But then, since my skin was acting up I decided to use toner on my skin back just to make sure that it removes all the remaining dirt that left on my skin. The toner that I'm currently using is from Aiken Tea Tree Oil Spot Away Pore Refining Toner. I have mentioned about this toner before, so nothing much to talk about. It is affordable, control my oiliness on my face, works pretty well on my skin and it also has tea tree oil in it so it is good for someone who has acne prone skin just like me.

Moisturiser

Same goes to the toner. I skipped using a moisturiser for a while and just used a cream from Mewangi instead. That cream was good. My problem with oily skin actually gone. I have a normal skin type at that moment. And again, I started to use moisturiser back when my skin acted up. It was hard at first due to my skin. My skin was so red, itchy and oily skin for the most of the time. I used for only an appropriate amount of moisturiser because if I use a little, it doesn't moisturize my skin very well, if I apply more, my skin will become more oily. So I decided to use in between of the amount which works perfectly. The moisturiser that I used is from Himalaya Herbals Nourishing Skin Cream. It has a nice scent to it. I guess the scent come from aloe vera and winter cherry.

Treatment

I normally apply my treatments products at night before I go to sleep as I want the products to do their job when I sleep. After applying the moisturiser on my skin, I will apply my Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Skin Therapy Oil on certain areas on my face, like on my cheeks and chin. Basically, I will put it on the areas that I have acne scars. I have used it for about 7 months now and I see it works at fading my acne scars or marks but it takes time. You have to be patient when you using it because you will not receive any results instantly.

Last but not least, it is a treatment product for my acne. I used Galderma Benzac AC 5 Benzoyl Peroxide on my acne. I love using this one over Oxy because I can see the result in the next morning. I have tried Oxy Benzyl Peroxide 5 and 10 before but none of them works as this one. While this one, it will minimize the appearance of my acne without drying out my skin. So good!

My Acne Journey + Current Skincare Routine


That's all for my daily skincare routine. Most of these products you can get it from any drugstores or pharmacies around your areas. (Plus, it is affordable too!) This is a highly requested post from you guys since I mentioned that I'm changed my skin care routine. Hehe. I hope you find it helpful in other ways.

Stay tuned for my weekly skincare routine too. I was planning to make it as one blog post but since I'm in the process of buying and trying some of the products, I decided to make a part two. So wait for it, okay?

Favourite Korean Dramas OST



Hi guys, I'm back with a new post. Watching Korean dramas has become a new routine for me. One thing that I loved about Korean dramas were their OST. Each drama has quite a few of OST songs and that making me listen more to K-pop songs. There are so good and relatable, I must say. Most of the dramas that I have watched, there must be at least one song that I love and willing to listen non-stop from day to night!

Here are my favourite Korean dramas OST.


My Secret Romance
Credit Image: here

Same - Song Ji Eun feat Sung Hoon (My Secret Romance)

I wanna know you
Not your blood type or sign
But the real you
The you that no one else knows

Will you tell me?
Starting from your first memory
Except for your first lie and first love
I wanna know everything


The lyrics of this song is so meaningful. I can relate this song to the drama. The fact that the hero and heroine themselves sang this song made it more sweet and lovely. But one thing about this song is, I barely hear Sung Hoon's voice. It so soft and low. 


Goblin : The Lonely and Great God
Credit Image: here

Beautiful - Crush (Goblin)

It’s a beautiful life
I’ll always protect you
It`s a beautiful life
So lean on me
beautiful love
Your tears, your smile
So we can be together
It`s a beautiful life


I'm still not watching the drama yet but the song really caught my heart. It is so soothing and calming to listen. I look forward watching the drama in the future. Since the drama was hype back then I think OST might be one of the reasons why. 


Kill Me Heal Me
Credit Image: here

Auditory Hallucinations - Jang Jae In feat NaShow (Kill Me Heal Me)

I want to roll up the darkness
And find you
Though I can’t touch you
Or be held by you


This one is so good. I can listen to this song over and over again without feeling bored at all. I even try to sing the song except for the rap part cause I'm not that expert nor good in rap. Some people said that the guy kills with his rap and she heals with her voice. I totally agree with that because without both parts this song might not be perfect or complete. 


She Was Pretty
Credit Image: here

Only You - Choi Siwon (She Was Pretty)

I have only
Yes, I have only you
I feel so empty that I feel
Like crying 
Even if I'm not there in your heart
Just once maybe

I have only you
Yes, I have only you
I'm still the same
Sometimes you can come to me 
I'll stay here where 
You were looking

How can I resist this song when my ultimate bias is the singer of the song? To listen to his voice for the whole song is a blessed, which is something that will not happen in Super Junior. She Was Pretty also the reason why I love this song because it is so Kim Shin Hyuk point of view. So sad and touching at the same time.




Have you listen to any of the songs?

Monthly Roundup + Highlights : June 2017



Selamat Hari Raya, everyone! How's your Raya went? I got a chance to visit some of my relatives when I was in my parent's hometown which is in Malacca and Kedah. Can't believe that I still managed to receive some 'Duit Raya' from others eventhough around my age it is hard to receive one. I feel so lucky πŸ˜„ My June was full of ups and downs. There's a lot of things happened each day which I'm going to share my highlights of the month.


HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MONTH

πŸ”Ή Fasting & Eid

Being able to experience Ramadhan again for this year is a blessing. Time flies so fast until I realized that Raya was just around the corner. At first, I don't get the vibes yet and I feel nothing. Then when we celebrate our first Syawal, then I knew it is happening.

πŸ”Ή Makeup Rest

I was planning to not wearing a makeup for a month until Eid and just focus on my skin care so that my skin will look better during Raya. But then, everything went wrong when I suddenly got massive breakouts. Still, I'm going out with my bare face eventhough I was so embarrassed with my own skin during that time. I lose the confidence that I usually have for going bare face in public, all because of this massive breakouts 😭

πŸ”Ή Massive breakouts

I don't know what goes wrong either my new face cleanser or my hormones or else, but I had some troubles with my skin throughout this past few weeks. I just recovered from my allergy and now this happened. This is not a joke, okay. Eid just around the corner and my skin acting up. I hate you, pimples! πŸ’’ My face was full of redness and breakouts around both sides of my cheeks. I was so frustrated at that time so I skipped using anything on my face just to rest my skin.

πŸ”Ή New skincare routine

I decided to give my skin a break from any products for a few weeks then decided to buy some new products regarding my skin problems. Because of my massive breakouts, I decided to change my skincare routine from what I usually use to a new one which I'm going to share with you guys soon. Hopefully, these new products that I used will work on my skin well.



✨ SONGS OF THE MONTH

What's My Name - T-ara πŸ”Ή Stay with Me - Chanyeol, Punch πŸ”Ή Adore U - SeventeenπŸ”Ή Secret Love Song, Pt. II - Little Mix πŸ”Ή Please Don't Be Sad - Highlight πŸ”Ή Don't Say Goodbye - Davichi πŸ”Ή Bukan Aku - Tasha Manshahar πŸ”Ή 20090729 - T-ara πŸ”Ή Lullaby - T-ara πŸ”Ή As If  It's Your Last - BlackPink








DRAMA/MOVIE/SHOW OF THE MONTH

Pembancuh Kopi Mr. Vampire


I did not watch much this month. I just watching the latest episodes of Runningman every week and Hero Seorang Cinderella which I just finished watching the last episode yesterday. I was so mad at Medina because of her attitude to Puteri. She treated Puteri so badly eventhough Puteri was nice to her. The drama was okay at first until one time I felt so annoyed and cringe hearing 'Sayang' in every each sentence. haha. The ending was happily ever after, just like others dramas or novels where they got kids or pregnant, something like that. Now, move one to the next one. If you still haven't watched this Malay drama from HyppTv, you guys should watch it. It is an adaptation of a novel, Pembancuh Kopi Mr. Vampire. The story was filled with emotions. I cried, laughed, angry, frustrated, all in one. I'm going to watch it again some other time and buy the novel and read it. Reading it might give me full version as adaptation might cut some part of the novel. No Korean dramas for this month and it feels so weird.

Maroon Burgundy for this Raya



Hello, readers! Are you done shopping for this upcoming Raya? If not, don't worry. It is still not too late to do some Raya shopping since we still have time for it. I still need to buy some others things like shoes and scarf/ shawl for this Raya. Maybe I can take a look what Lazada have for this Riang Ria Raya sale?

If last year my theme was orange brownish kind of colour. But for this year, my Mom and I will be a bit away from that colour theme as we cannot find any outfits with that colour theme at the moment we search for the outfits. So our colour theme for my Mom and I is maroon burgundy colour. I know it is not matching with the boys' theme but it is okay as long as we are together, right? 

For the first day Raya, I will be wearing a Kebaya. It is going to be my first time wearing Kebaya since I never wear one before. I'm quite excited for it. Since it is a plain Kebaya so I will be matching my outfit with a designed shawl or scarf. For the next two days, I will be wearing a modern baju kurung and a dress. For shoes, I feel like I want to wear a heels or wedges to give me some height since I'm way too short. Not to forget, a handbag. It is a must so that I can put everything that I need in the bag.

There are lots of things on Lazada website. It is hard for me to choose cause there are so many choices there. But let see what I would like to buy from Lazada to complete my outfit.

Monthly Roundup : May 2017



Hi, everyone. How are you guys doing? I hope everything goes well as you wish. We are now entering the first half of the year and when I was looking back to my goals, there are nothing much changes especially my life. But it is okay, I have another six months to sort everything out. Am I right? 

I'm sorry as there are no highlights for this month. But I bet in June there will be quite a few since there are lots of things happen especially Ramadhan and not forget, Eidul Fitri. I can't wait!


SONGS OF THE MONTH

Same - Song Ji Eun & Sung Hoon πŸ”Ή Auditory Hallucinations - Jung Jae In feat NaShow πŸ”Ή Good Night - Dreamcatcher

These songs are so good. I put the songs on repeat and still not feel bored. I even looking up for the romanization so that I can sing the song and I did! I just keep practicing and singing until to the point that there was no mispronunciation at all. I'm so proud of myself.




DRAMA/MOVIE/SHOW OF THE MONTH 

Doctors πŸ”Ή My Secret Romance πŸ”Ή Kimchi Untuk Awak πŸ”Ή Hero Seorang Cinderella

Remember when I said that I only watched the dramas of the person that I knew or fan with? I take my words back. I am now trying to watch as many dramas as I can and trying not to be choosy because I noticed that recently Korean dramas were quite great to watch. It all happened when I was on my laptop on that day and I clicked the popular dramas icon on the online Korean Drama website. Both Korean dramas that I watched this month were great. I might be rewatching it again in the future. Do tell me what should I watch next, can you? For Kimchi Untuk Awak, I'm sorry to say this but the movie was so-so to me. I already read the novel before but quite disappointed with the movie because the storyline was short and fast. There are not so many scenes there. I don't know, maybe it just me or maybe because my expectation was high for the movie. But overall, I must say that I prefer novel over the movie. That is all. Hero Seorang Cinderella, a current Malay drama that I accidentally watched and fell in love with. Eventhough I'm still not reading the novel yet but so far so good. I look forward to the next episodes.

Currently Reading on Wattpad



If you still didn't know, Wattpad is an app where you can discover free stories or books created by writers around the world. There are lots of genres you can find there such as romance, science fiction, fantasy, young adult fiction or fanfiction and more. And the most important thing is, it's FREE!

I think I have been mentioning about this for hundred times already but I still want to mention it again. It's been a while since I'm read a book. I keep repeating reread my old books for a countless time now. Until one day I decided to reinstall the app on Play Store called Wattpad. I used to install Wattpad before like two years ago but then I uninstalled it as my favourite books or stories were completed. There is nothing fun to be read at that time so I decided to uninstall. Good things happened. When I'm login to my account again the first thing I saw was the sequel of my favourite books or stories that I read before this. I'm so happy during that time and here I am sharing with you guys what I'm currently reading on Wattpad at the moment. Hope you enjoy!

If you're interested to read them, I recommend you to read the book one first so that you will understand the story well since it is a continuation from the book one. If you ask me if it is worth reading, I would say yes! Both books were great and fun to read. The stories are something that you will never think or imagine would happen. I bet you will also into this books once you read them. I might do a review of these books once it is completed so wait for it, okay?

Trying Out SK-II Products with SEPHORA MY

*This is sponsored post.

Having a nice and flawless skin is every girl's dream out there. A big shout out for those who already has a nice flawless skin, you guys are so lucky! I do think that you should start taking care of your skin at the early age so that your skin won't get aging or wrinkles in the future. Am I right? I'm a person who has acne and combination skin but sometimes it could be sensitive too so looking for skincare products can be a little bit tough for me. I have to seek for a product that will moisturize and hydrate but does not give any harms to my skin at the same time.

In today's post, I'm collaborating with Sephora Malaysia to try and test some of the skincare products from SK-II. If you still didn't know, SK-II is a Japanese beauty brand that launched in 1980. I must say that it is a well-known brand and I believe you heard it before, right? So, without further a due, let's go more to the products, shall we?

Trying SK-II Products with Sephora Malaysia



SK-II Pitera Essence Set (RM 229.00)

In this set, you will get three products which are SK-II Facial Treatment Lotion 30ml, SK-II Facial Treatment Essence 75ml, and SK-II Facial Treatment Mask.

Since I didn't pick any facial cleanser from this range, I'm going to skip this step and move to the next one. After cleansing my face, I will apply SK-II Facial Treatment Lotion to the cotton pad and then wipe the products to my skin. This clear lotion will remove the excess dirt, sebum or oil on your skin. At the same time, it will also refresh your skin as well. 

The next step is applying the essence. I never use any essence before and quite excited to try this one. All I do is pour some good amount of the essence to my clean palm and rubbing it for a few seconds before I pat it to my skin. You can also use the cotton pad while doing this process but your girl here is so lazy so she just pours them into her palm. Haha. What I noticed after using this essence is the absorption process. I can say that this essence absorb so quickly to my skin so I don't have to wait for it to dry or anything. I'm not a fan of the scent that coming from this essence but I do think that it is bearable and not too strong. 

Last but not least, applying the mask. I'm waiting for a good time to try this mask. But then there is one day where my skin was not looking that good. It was dry patches everywhere on my face, some small pimples on my forehead, large pores. You name it, I had it all. So I decided to give it a try. The sheet mask is just like the others mask. But the essence though. It is so rich with essence. I applied it to my face and let it for about 30 minutes. I can see some changes to my skin after I remove the mask. My skin was so moisturised, my pores appear smaller than before and my dry patches look a hydrated too. And of course, I will not be going to throw away the remaining balance of the essence. I just applied it to my neck and hands. It's really really refreshing.


SK-II Pitera Essence Set




SK-II Signs Eye Mask (RM 262.00)

Having not enough sleep is the main reason why I picked up this product. I barely get sleep during the night time and that bring me to stay up until late at night. My eyes started to give a not so good sign where my dark circle started to appear and not to mention the eyebags too. It started to appear under my eyes area. Then I'm trying this eye mask. his eye mask really moisturising and hydrating your undereye area. Just like the facial mask, this eye masks also rich with essence. I forget to mention that in this box, you will get 14 pieces of eye mask. So you can use it whenever your eyes feel tired and acting up. 


SK-!! Signs Eye Mask

I would say that it is a great experience trying these SK-II products. If you're interested in buying any SK-II products, go here. Thanks for reading!

Monthly Roundup + Highlights : April 2017



I'm so sorry for skipping two months of this monthly post. I don't know why but my motivation towards blogging for the past months are quite down. I have a hard time making a new post in my blog. Every time I try to type a new post, I always got stuck at the point that I don't want to do it at all. But I slowly fixing those problems by controlling them and trying my best to get that motivation towards blogging back. Hopefully, it's working.



HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MONTH

πŸ”Ή Kidzania, KL

Early this month I got the chance to went to Kidzania KL to accompany my two little brothers there. It's is a fun theme park for kids (obviously!) because they will get a lot of knowledge and experiences regarding the activities that they do there. My two brothers and I spent almost six hours there and it is torturing me a bit because I have to wait for them for the whole time. There are a lot of activities that they can be experienced there like being a DJ, pilot, doctor, surgeon, and much more. I really recommend you to bring your younger siblings or kids there.

πŸ”Ή Allergy

Never thought this would have happened to me but I got allergy reaction on my skin. I got rashes all over my body and it really stressed me out. My skin was so itchy, red and sore for the whole two weeks. I'm still dealing with it by the way and hoping this would end very soon. After holding it for a week, I couldn't stand it anymore then decided to meet a doctor as soon as I can. The doctor said that I had the allergy and asked me to avoid seafood for the time being. But the funny thing is, I was never got any allergy when I ate any kind seafood before and how come I can suddenly get it? I don't know. It just feels so weird. Or maybe I just got the allergy from something else but not seafood, who knows?


SONGS OF THE MONTH

Only you - Siwon πŸ”Ή Will you go out with me - DIA πŸ”Ή Beautiful - Crush πŸ”Ή The eye - Infinite πŸ”Ή Fine - Taeyeon 

P/s: I guess I'm listening to Kpop songs more than the others πŸ˜‰


DRAMA/MOVIE/SHOW OF THE MONTH


I discovered a new show to watch which is Asia's Next Top Model S5. For your information, I love watching this kind of reality show where models compete with each other to become next top model. The dramas that they're making is so fun to watch. It is weird? Haha. The next one would be Korean dramas which I just finished watching the whole episodes of the drama which is Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo. I cannot believe that the next few days after I finished this drama, a good news coming up which is Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung from the drama are currently dating! I really love their chemistry on this drama and I'm so glad that they are together in real life. Last but not least, would also be another Korean drama which is Oh My Venus. Oh my God, guys. This drama is so soo good. I would suggest for those who loves watching Korean dramas but still didn't have the chance watching Oh My Venus, you guys should watch it. You will not regret it, trust me. Believe me or not, on episode 13 if I'm not mistaken, I was crying so bad for the whole episode due to the story. The hero and heroine really bring their characters all out and it touched my heart. I feel like I want a man just like Kim Young Ho did to Kang Joo Eun so that he can train me with my weight so that I will never gain weight anymore. Haha

GOALS & RESOLUTIONS UPDATES 

πŸ”Ή Start writing again

I glad that I got some inspirations to start writing again. In April, I managed to write at least two poems. It is more than enough to me since I have been not writing for quite sometimes now. Writing is the best way to express how I feel. It feels so good to read my poems again whenever I feel down and realized how hard and struggle I am to control my emotions. I did read my old short stories that I created years ago and there is a feeling in my heart that I feel like I want to start writing short stories again in the future.

πŸ”Ή Losing weight

This month I just started to skip my dinner and ate rice during lunch time only. I just hope that it helps my weight a bit. In terms of exercising, I don't even exercise throughout the month and I know it is bad. But I just so lazy, you know what I mean...

πŸ”Ή Find solutions for my skin

My skin for this month made some improvement. I don't get that many pimples as before anymore except during my time of the month. That cannot help anymore, it just happened.

πŸ”Ή Earn my own money

Nothing to talk about. 

πŸ”Ή Be stronger than usual

Nothing to talk about.

πŸ”Ή Save money

I cannot say that I save my money since I spent some of my money to my skincare products. But I can say that I'm not spent a lot. I bought what I need and that it is. 


How was your April went?

My Blogging Routine



Blog post ideas

This is the very first thing that I need to figure out before starting to create a new blog post. For me, this is where it starts. How can you write a blog post if you don't have the main keywords or points to your post, right? To be honest, I do have a hard time finding, searching, figuring my next upcoming blog posts just because I don't know what to blog. So I usually ended up searching for more and more blog post ideas on Google from the few sites and then jot down the list to my planner. It's really helping me a lot. I also did some brainstorm too by looking at my surrounding. Eventhough it not that much still enough for me.

Images

Before I starting to write a post, I will always make sure that the images or pictures for the blog post are ready. Why? Because I will interpret all my thoughts by looking at the images. If it is a review post, I will be using my DSLR camera to take the pictures two or three days before I create a blog post but if it is a personal or non-formal post, I normally go to for a stock photos that I think works well with the blog post and fast too. Overall it all depends on what blog post I'm going to do during that time. 

Write a post

This is the stage where I struggle the most. Believe me or not, I sometimes took about at least three days to a week for a blog post! Sounds ridiculous, right? But, it's true. It is because I normally writing my blog post whenever I want to. By whenever I mean, it could be in the morning, late night or even before I go to sleep. I think that the reason why I don't normally finish a blog post on the same day. So, the conclusion is I don't have any specific ways or routine for writing a blog post. I normally will just go with the flow.

Double check

After I'm done with writing the blog post, I will take some time to double check my words, grammar, spelling, and everything to make sure that my blog post is perfect so I didn't have to redo or reupdate for another time. Eventhough I double checked it, I may still make some mistakes here and there so yeah. 

Hit the publish button

Once I satisfied with my blog post, writing, pictures, and everything, I will finally hit the publish button. I'm trying my best to keep on updating at least once a week. I usually have blogging schedule that I'm trying to follow which is on every Wednesdays and Saturdays. 

Post overview

If you think that I'm done after hit the publish button, you're wrong. Because I usually look forward to my views and comments for the post I had published. This is also the time where I read and reply to the comments that have been left by the readers. I appreciate every views and comment that I received through my blog posts. Thank you so much.

BONUS: Reading blogs

What's blogging routine without reading other blogs, right? I really really love reading blogs as I can get inspire by their writings and experiences. Other than reading the blogs from Blogger dashboard, I also read blogs from Bloglovin'. There are lots of blogs there and it is fun to read them.



Thanks for reading!



I already shared mine. How about yours?

Popcorn Homemade - Easy and Fast To Make

Popcorn Homemade


I never thought that I'm going to make popcorn in my life because I usually have to buy it or eat it only if I watch movies on the cinema. But not for now because I can make it by myself that are way better than the popcorn that sells on the market and the fact that I can get more and more popcorn without spending more of my money is great, okay!

A few days ago, my little brother asking me to make a popcorn again since we already have some of the popcorn kernels left. I just said 'yes' but hold it for a while to find the best time to make it. I guess today is the day. Without further a due, let's get started!

What you will need:
  • Pan with lids (the bigger the better)
  • Ladle
  • A cup of popcorn kernels
  • 4 spoons of butter or margarine
  • 5-8 spoons of sugar

Popcorn Homemade


Steps:

Popcorn

1. Heat your pan and add two spoons of butter.

2. Once your butter melts, add a cup of popcorn kernels and stir lightly to make sure that the butter and popcorn kernels are well mixed. Next, close the pan with the lid and wait for about 7-10 minutes for the popcorn kernels to pop. Please make sure that the heat remains lower and stir a bit so that it won't be burnt at the bottom.

3. Take out the cooked popcorn and put it aside.


Caramel

1. Using the same pan that you used before with a lower heat, add sugar and don't forget to stir while waiting for the sugar to melt. Be careful while doing this as melting sugar can burn yourself.

2. Once the sugar melts and turns to yellowish/golden colour, add another two spoons of butter and stir the two ingredients together slowly.

3. Last but not least, turn off the heat and pour the popcorns that we cooked earlier to the pan. Don't forget to stir it into the caramel until it mixed together.

4. Let it cool for a while and it's ready to eat!


Popcorn Homemade


Easy, right? Usually, when we bought popcorn from outside, the amount is not that much and some of the popcorn are not even be caramelized. So sad. We paid for a plain popcorn? Hmm. The best thing about made it by yourself is, you can save your money and get more than what you have paid. Am I right? 😊

Unboxing + Review : Nivea Face Care Make Up Clear Radiant Skin Brush Set

During Lazada 5th Birthday Sale, I was scrolling through the website finding something to buy for myself. Not going to lie, I have so many products that I want to buy like makeup, beauty products, makeup brushes, bags and more. But none of them caught my heart.  So, I didn't buy anything during the sale.

A few days later, I went back to Lazada's website and finding something to pick again. Then I decided to choose this set and add it to my cart. I didn't straightly checkout my cart because I want to wait if I have any other things to buy. Since I was using my phone at that time, I got easily distracted by the social medias and I totally forgot about my cart. And guess what happened next? The price from RM29.95 went up to RM59.95! That's no way I'm going to spend my money with that price when I can get the same product for the lowest price. Right? Then I closed the window with frustrated and regret feelings during that time.

To shorten up my stories, I went back to Lazada's website again the next few days and I got a good news. The price went back to RM 29.95 and I immediately check out my purchase right away. Only God knows how excited I'm to received this item. For your information too, I already received it on last Monday and let's do some unboxing and review.

As you open up the box, you will get four products;
  • Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Cleansing Water 
  • Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Foam 
  • Nivea Extra White Makeup Starter 3 in 1 Whitening Mask 
  • Nivea Advanced Electric Facial Cleansing Brush 


Step 1: Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Cleansing Water


This cleansing water does a good job removing my makeup. It is similar to my Garnier Micellar Water and I can't find any different between those two. It just that, normally I will need at least two cotton pads to remove all my makeup including BB cream, powder, eyeshadow, mascara, blusher, lipstick and brow products. But not with this Nivea Cleansing Water because with one cotton pad, it removes almost everything on my face without me trying so hard to remove it. One thing that I noticed was this cleansing water sting your eyes a bit. So do avoid or careful when it comes to your eyes area.  


Step 2: Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Foam


For your information, I'm not using a makeup cleanser for a long time now. For me, my double cleansing term is, removing my makeup and wash my face with my daily facial cleanser. That should be enough, right? Because I don't see any point of using makeup cleanser while it works the same as your facial cleanser. The product itself has a nice subtle scent and foaming a bit. But I think because of the cleansing water already did a good job, that might be one of the reasons why this cleanser didn't give me so much different to my skin except my skin become a bit brighter and smooth. 


Nivea Advanced Electric Facial Cleansing Brush


This is the main reason why I want this set so much. This brush machine works the best with the makeup cleanser. I used both of the brush, it still works the best. For the silicone brush, I use it for my daily cleanser while the other one I using it when I wearing a makeup because it will deep clean and removes the remaining that I have on my face. So far so good. I really really love the brush. It makes my skincare routine easier and less time-consuming.  


Step 3: Nivea Extra White Makeup Starter 3 in 1 Whitening Mask


I haven't get the chance to try the mask yet but I'm looking forward to using it. Hopefully, it will work well on my skin. I think I saw this line (Makeup Starter) in the tube version. I don't think I saw it anymore on the drugstores.



As a conclusion, I really really love this set. It has all I need. I would like to recommend you guys to try it if you're interested. It's totally worth the money, trust me. I think that's all I have for now. Thank you for stopping by. Have a nice weekend with your loved one.

Have you ever tried any of this set?
