I’m still alive!

I’m still here! For those of you who actually care. Haha. I was gone for a while cause of finals, parents coming down and my trip to the states. After I got back I kinda felt out of touch, and I wasn’t really sure how I wanted to get back into it. I was also kinda trying to decide which direction to take my blog too. At the mo, it’s filled with little rants and quite a bit of product reviews, and I’m trying to figure out if it should be more… consistent? Not sure if that’s the right word. But yea. Anyway, I will try to start posting soon-ish..  I have midterms in two weeks. :
Just got to push through and I will be done by the end of the year!
I can’t believe how quick this year has gone by!

Here’s a photo of my face and Duffy . Hahaha.

hopefully I get my blogging mojo back. Might do a giveaway if I hit a good number of followers. 😡

It’s July!

Holy Crap! Where did the time go?!

Anyway, I’m currently really busy with assignments cause my school decided to set the same deadline for all of them. Finals are also only about 5 weeks away and I really need to start studying. I promised myself that I would start making notes or study much earlier this semester and, I have failed.

Besides all that boring school nonsense, I have loads to blog about. I just started Yoga about 3 weeks ago to help tone myself up and better my health (also to make sure I don’t get too fat that I can’t fit into my bridesmaids dress). I have a bunch of products that I picked up over the few weeks from Holika Holika, Origins and Bourjois. My parents also came down over the weekend and I didn’t have time to post anything new. Sorry to those who are waiting for something. I will get to posting something new this weekend or when I am fed up with my assignments.

Body Confidence

I know I am not alone on this one. So many people I know have low body confidence or hate the body that they are in. In this day and age, we are constantly bombarded by the media of what is an acceptable body type or how we should look. It’s given people a “Barbie and Ken” complex about themselves. ( I just made that up. Not even sure if it exists. Haha )

I remember being in secondary school and hating the way I looked. ( I was a really late bloomer. Some still joke I haven’t actually hit puberty. ) I got teased for being small and flat chested. It made me get so obsessed with the idea of having huge boobs that I’ve even considered getting my boobs done. I also used to be so obsessed with my weight that I would starve myself or take diet pills ( which don’t work ). I was so obsessed on being what media has told me is beautiful that it has made me hate my body. It also didn’t help when boys I knew told me that I looked “hotter” once I lost weight.

It took me a while, but I finally grew out of it. Well, sorta. I still have days where I hate my body but, my body is my own and I should embrace it. So what if I have small boobs, at least they’ll remain perky when I get older. Haha. I also realised that personality is so much more important than aesthetics. Looks can only get you so far in life. Well, for us normal folk anyway. When I stopped obsessing over my body, I realised that people wanted to get to know me or date me because of my personality. Not because of my boobs or my weight. I’m sure this all plays a role, but if someone can’t see past the physical stuff to get to know you, they certainly aren’t worth your time.

One day I hope to be truly and completely comfortable in my own skin.

Singapore Haze

OMG. I cannot deal with the haze any more. Maybe I have exceptionally weak lungs. Even the mask didn’t help me much. I literally feel like passing out. 😦
My chest hurts so bad. I can’t even breathe properly. I hope the haze goes away soon.

Obsessing Over Nothing

How many of you obsess over something that hasn’t happened or even nothing?

I know I’m guilty of this. I get so obsessed over the idea of something that might potentially happen that it consumes me. I end up getting so stressy over it and it hasn’t even happen yet, or might not even happen. I always end up over thinking things and making a mess of the present situation, even creating problems that didn’t exist. The thing is, I just really enjoy planning and that just leads to really high expectations of how things should be, as we all know usually leads to greater disappointment.

So, I’ve decided I’m not going to over think or obsess over things that are yet to come. With a tattoo like Carpe Diem, I should really live up to it and just take things as they come. Whether it’s with school, job, my future or relationships. I just need to let things take their course. Obsessing does nothing for anyone.

 

 

 

 

Feeling le poo

I’m currently still feeling le poo even after I’ve been put on medication. Been feeling giddy since Thursday evening and it hasn’t gotten better. 😦
I managed to go out for a couple of hours to grab some lunch and do a mini haul at MAC without wanting to vom.

On a 30 day course of medication. Not sure what it does tbh. Haha. Should probably check it out.

Love

Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.
