Just Me and My Thoughts

Hello November
And so it’s pretty much nearing the end of year 2013 already. Just 2 more months to close this year. I guess for me, this year had been a rollercoaster ride – falling out of love, losing a best friend and well, finding a new love again, not to mention that there are great opportunities for me in terms of my future career even though I will be graduating a year later than I’m supposed to. It was a hell of a ride I must say, losing important people in my life. I guess you may say that in life, it’s all about choices, it’s all about choosing your paths wisely, but to be honest, when situations come, you just don’t know what’s the best way to react and well, you do stupid things that make you regret.
I never was someone who could express all my thoughts freely to people and that caused me to not have many friends in my life that I could talk to. I never found the need to have a social circle to keep, perhaps because of my partner I used to have to tell everything to, I didn’t and never found the need to confide in any of my friends. And that’s when I thought it was okay, it wasn’t. Having a social circle of friends is indeed very essential not just because you are lonely you need company, but even with a partner, social life plays such an important role in your life. Because when you depend your everything (emotions, loneliness etc.) on your partner, you will start to engage in fights and quarrels when he/she isn’t around. So because I never knew the importance, I made mistakes of focusing on myself and my relationship, neglecting my friends, especially the 2 most important friends I have.
I didn’t know how to properly maintain a friendship with my best friends when I was in my lowest period and all I did was make stupid and rash decisions that caused pain and hurt to myself and especially them (I’m sorry if I hurt you, my besties. It never was my intention and I would’ve listened if I could redo this). Looking back, I could’ve done this a million times better, I could’ve picked myself up and listened to proper advice given to me and none of these would’ve happened. But well, I guess it’s just too late to push the blame, apologise and all those things and probably moving forward is the best way to go now. I learnt to pick up and change to be a better person. I started to focus on my career path instead. Well, you could say that I was looking for distractions but immersing myself in a world of never-ending projects and case challenges did help me beef up my resume to prepare myself for the real marketing world and of course, moulded me to be more patient and toned-down. It wasn’t all for my resume, for some may say. Going through case challenges forced me to think critically and always consider the big picture and I must say that I have been applying these learning points to my latest projects and assignments.
Well, having said all these, I just want to highlight that even though people make mistakes (clearly I made a lot), the vital thing is to really learn from it and listen. Stop yourself right there when you aren’t in the best state of your mind to make decisions, and listen. You’ll find yourself benefitting more than you ever could have just by observing and listening. I learnt it the hard way, and trust me, you wouldn’t want to go through this, so don’t forget to stop, reflect and listen amidst chasing the stars and all the things you want to achieve/do.
The world is in your hands. You decide your own fate.

Urban Decay Glinda Palette Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Glinda Palette Review

Hola! Oh gosh, the haze recently had and have been really really bad. The PSI today shot up to 155! Please stay hydrated and wear a mask if you’re going outdoors in this crazy hot and hazy weather!

Anyway, here’s the belated Urban Decay Glinda Palette review and swatches! I am absolutely in love with this gorgeous magical-looking palette with the pastels and shimmers. Without further ado, let’s hop into the fascinating land of the Glinda Palette!

The Urban Decay Glinda Palette comes in a hard metal tin which is very sturdy. When you close the palette, you can hear the ‘click’ sound which indicates that it is secure and will not spill all over when you pop this baby into your bag. Overall I love the aurora colours on the casing itself.

ACL Post Surgery Updates

ACL Post Surgery Updates

Phew, the battle is over. I have survived the ~2 hours surgery for my left knee. I had attained a slight tear on my Anterior Cruciate Ligament, which is commonly known as ACL, as well as my meniscus on my left knee when I was in a Netball competition in my college days. So, what happens is on and off, I get my left leg bending in sometimes and then bending out again because the ligament is torn and it can no longer hold the entire knee structure in place. At first my condition improved with about 6 months of physiotherapy and I could walk, run, jump and even wear heels again.

But just one fine day, while I wearing my little red wedges (~2 inches only) that I bought from Hong Kong for about S$8 I think, the shoe strap suddenly broke and wala, I tore my ACL completely. Went to the doc’s and 2 doctors said that I have to go for surgery so I picked up my courage and went for it.

So this is a photo of me pre-surgery:

(I look like I’m in a going to bathe with the shower cap and bathrobe)

Saturday Brunch @ d’Good Cafe

Saturday brunch d'Good Cafe

Holla! It’s a good Saturday, well spent with my beloved Mummy and Sis. Even though I should be studying for my final papers next Tuesday and Wednesday, I still decided to head out for a good brunch (a very late one) and I am so satisfied, ready to finish off the last lap of exams!

So Mummy, Sis and I were randomly walking around Holland Village trying to look for a good place for brunch and we incidentally discovered d’Good Cafe. Thinking that it might be promising, we decided to go ahead with this cafe and we were pleasantly surprised by the decor of the cafe!

Urban Decay: Fun Palette Review & Swatches

Urban Decay: Fun Palette

Today I’m going to review another of the Urban Decay Holiday 2012 Collection palettes – The Fun Palette! (Click here for the review on the Feminine Palette). As the name suggests, this palette consists of really fun and vibrant colours for all you makeup junkies to play with! This is the perfect palette if you want to add some bright colours apart from the neutrals you wear every day and I love this palette as well for the purple and blue shadows.

The palette comes in a wallet-sized packaging that comes in really handy when you want to just pop into your bag. It is clothed in a ultra shimmery turqoise patent casing with gold zippers and just like the Feminine Palette, you can detach the palette from its casing to use the casing as a mini wallet/clutch.
