Life Updates.



Hello there lovelies!! Sorry again for the lack of updates this lately, but this blog ain't dead!

It has been one and a half month since my lectures has already started. I'm actually starting a new semester on MPU subjects tomorrow while my actual lectures for my program will only start at the mid of September, which means I'll probably have a hectic life on case study by then. ^^"

I actually ad a lot of free time last month due that there's only 2 days of lectures per week. I told myself to blog more often. However, things happening everyday was almost the same and I spent mostly of my time at home while there's no class. Therefore, I haven't to be able to get some new idea to blog about for this lately. (Well, there's no way I would report on my daily routines on the blog right? :P) Despite of having lack of ideas for new blog post, I guess I'll still try to bring up something and blog some I have in mind. =v=b

Basically this lately is that when there's no lectures, I did make some practices on taking photo while I was out of home. Then I'll try to edit the photo using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom when I'm back home. Eventually I came up with some random photos throughout the times.









I can't say that I'm good in photography and I'm sure that there's a plenty more space for me to improve as well as learning from practical. From my perspective, my camera did pretty well in producing photos even it's considered to be a basic model among different ranges of Semi-DSLR and DSLR camera. There's still a lot of practice to go. If there's possible I would really like to save money and invest myself another lens for my camera, such as portrait lens or maybe macro lens! By then I can produce better photos!

By the way, if you have been following my instagram you'll probably know that I have bought myself a Clarisonic Mia 2!!! I'm so happy that I can finally bought another item from my wishlist with some parts of my leftover salary. *throws confettis* Now, I'm nearly broke already. Orz  This is actually an investment for me so I wouldn't care spending a little bit more. Hopefully it'll improve my skin condition! *cross fingers* I'll make a review too after a period of time of usage and it's for sure!! :D

[Review] The Face Shop Chia Seed Moisture Holding Seed Cream.

Hello everyone! :D

It's been quite a long time since I last made a review on skin care products that I've tried. Since that I haven't been doing something interesting in my post this lately so I hope this post wouldn't be boring as you guys keep on read. Also, please do read till the end of this post as there will be a little surprise for all of you!

This time, I'll be reviewing The Face Shop's Chia Seed Moisture Holding Cream which was included in the gift set I bought. The moisturizing cream is known for it's light watery texture and it's incredibly moisture effect.


Other than the extremely good of moisture, the moisturizer also has 7 free system, which means there's no o benzophnone, artificial coloring, sulfate, mineral oil, animal sourced ingredients, and triethanolamine contents in the moisturizing cream. It is also eco friendly due that it's totally made from natural ingredients which include 100% organic Chia seed extract.

So what exactly CHIA SEED is???? 




I remember my dad used to bought me the 'Tong Shui' from the Malay night markets and inside it includes seeds which look like frog eggs. Consequently, it also became a habit of mine to call it as 'frog egg' when I want my dad to buy me one. *laughs* 



However, then I realised those 'frog eggs' were actually Chia Seed. It's was pretty surprising when I found out that. :P

These seeds naturally have the capability to hold up to 10 times of water. That's is why the moisturizing cream is claimed to be able to hold 10 times of moisture for our skin. 



Besides, chia seeds are actually nutritious seeds which included of those mention in the picture above. I'm  amaze with the facts. :O 

Lets see how the cream works, shall we?


From what you see the cream is semi-transparent white.





The cream seems thick but surprisingly it's able to be absorbed very fast and the texture is watery unlike some other which is very sticky.

I don't know how much it actually cost for this trial size one but from what I know, the original size one retails at a price of RM99.90. Well, it's not that expensive but somehow it's slightly expensive for teenagers like me since that I'm a full-time student now so I don't have income apparently. ^^"


Pros:

Light, non-greasy watery texture

Provide excellent hydration to skin
Good moisture Holding 
Suitable for all skin type, even for sensitive skin.


Cons:

♥ Bulky packaging 
♥ Slightly over priced 



Rating: 4.5/5.0

Oh! Before I almost forgot! I did promised you guys to make a blog giveaway once last time (well, it's pretty long time already. Forgive me ^^") so here it is! My first blog giveaway after so long! Sorry for keeping some of you waiting. >_<
*Drumrolls*
.............

[Review] Etude House Eau de Perfume - No More

Hello lovelies!

Time flies fast and it's almost the mid of June already. There's only another half month and half of the year would over. I'm surprised that times keep on going by faster day by day. For these 5 months passed I've been slacking at home then started working after Chinese New Year till now.

Now, I'm back being a full-time student and my lecture just started this Monday and I have pretty much fun meeting new friends as well as enjoying my studies. :)

That's all for the 'grandmother story' of mine. *laughs* Today I'll be reviewing my first very own frangrance!
Well, it's not really the 'first' one because I've bought a Eau de Toilette(EDT) one previously but for this one, it's a  Eau de Perfume(EDP).

I have never use EDP before so it's quite a new thing for me. I started off by purchasing a EDT at first because I didn't have much knowledge on fragrances. I was like: "It's all perfume". -__-
As for the reason is that I've noticed girls around me smells so nice after taking their bath or arriving at meet ups. (Don't get it wrong, I'm not a pervert okay.) In the meanwhile, I still smell the same as if I'm still smell as stink as how I was before taking my bath. My colleague told me that's natural that you couldn't scent your smell but somehow I still feel uneasy so I went to get a EDT in eventually LOL (You can laugh all you can. *covers face*)
For your information, here's the difference type of fragrances available in the market.


In a nutshell, this EDP fragrance could last longer then EDT. Which is pretty much an ease to cover up my stinky smell for a longer time lolol. Just kidding ^^"

The fragrance I bought comes from the Eau de Parfum range which Etude House launched on this year's Valentine's Day. 

There are 7 kinds of scents available in the range. I bought myself "No More" as it's more preferable to me among all the scents. At first I thought that "Love Me More" would be the best scent but I find it too sweet. Well, it does suits the Lovey dovey feels however it's not in my choice.   



-Name: No More Eau de Perfume
 -Volume: 20ml                            
-Price: 12,000 Won; RM 89.90   

The perfume comes with different packaging color for the respective kinds to coordinate with the themes. Apart from that, the bottle it fully glass so you'll probably need to be careful with that. 

It does surprise me too that it comes with such small amount at the price nearly to RM 90. However, there's one reason behind that. It's because that EDP has much stronger scent than EDT and a little goes a long way. Thus, you wouldn't need that much sprays at a time. 

From the description, it is stated that the perfume is a "Delicate & sophisticated modern perfume by fresh citron & green leaves." Well, it does smell in that way. The scent is truly delicate and yet not too strong.

After I started using this fragrance I've been receiving comments from my colleague and friends that I smell so feminine , which is the term that they never apply on me before LOL. However, those comments were actually in a positive way. :D


Pros: 
- Delicate scent & not too strong
- Long lasting scent
- Simple yet adorable & classy packaging

Cons:
- Considered pricey for a volume of 20ml

Rating: 4.5/5 stars  

Here's a little commercial video of the fragrance before I end my post. 


I'm having my free time this lately so I'll try to bring up more updates. (Well, I probably should ensure that I'm diligent enough instead of slacking and watch dramas while munching snacks LOL)
