Set yourself free

“When something bad happens you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.” ~Unknown

It's been almost half a year since the change in my life. 
30th May actually marked our 10th anniversary together. To be honest, there are still days when I wake up and wonder if all that happened was just a dream but on some days I glad it happened before it got too late.
Ever since then, I've been very thankful to know that there are so many people out there who have my back. All the encouraging texts/emails/DMs that would bring a huge smile to my face.  People always ask how can I remain so calm and strong after all these drama cos all I did was continue posting my ootds etc. Not many knew but during the first few days, I chose to hide at home and did all things self destruct. (no suicidal thoughts of cos) I couldn't eat nor sleep cos the heartache was so unbearable that it felt like someone stabbed my heart.

Good thing after a week o…

Rosette Facial Wash

Being in my mid twenties also means I need to pay more attention to suitable skincare products and take better care of my skin. Other than consuming a lot of water daily, I watch my diet and most importantly, use the correct products that are gentle to my skin.
A little background on Rosette, a skincare brand from Japan founded in 1929. It started with the traditional paste facial wash which is made from Sulfur for acne protection. Rosette Face Wash is mainly referred to as PASTA Face Wash due to its fine texture and doughy form. Good news, it is now available in all SASA stores since June 2016 and will be up at Watsons by the next month!
I have to say that these products are extremely affordable at $9.90 so if are looking for a facial wash that is pocket friendly, this review is for you :)

 There are 4 different clays for various skin types.
Normal Cleansing - for normal, combination and sensitive skin; contains sea clay and rose fruit extractAcne Treatment - for oily and acne-prone …

Hada Labo Pledge to Pat #sp

Ever ask yourself, what are your skin concerns? For me, it would definitely be my dull and dry skin. I'm definitely not a risk-taker; I have always believed in this quote 'if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it'. I hardly make any changes to my day and night regime as I am pretty contented with my current complexion and am quite aversive to trying new products for fear of causing my skin to break out. So naturally, I’ll be afraid to try new products. This is until I went to a workshop hosted by Hada Labo recently, that changed my mindset. Oh boy, I was sold by what the presentation given by Dr Naelong Wang (Ph. D Chemistry) from John Hopkins University. There are thousands of moisturising and hydrating ingredients used in skincare products but unlike these brands, Hada Labo focuses on Hyaluronic Acid, which is known popularly for its ability to bind water (the essential component in hydration!). 1 gram of HA is able to hold up to six litres of water.
