The Forgotten & Bizarre Dreams

I was woken up by a strange dream today. I can't really remember what it was about but I woke up crying and feeling really upset. What on earth?! I must be losing it.

Lately, I have been having the strangest dreams. The other night I dreamt that I was being forced into an arranged marriage by my parents and grandparents to a man I have never met. A grandchild to my grandfather's friend/acquantaince or something like that. No recent encounters really connect to this. Bizarre.

It may be that I am lacking sleep and my brain has gone whoopdidoo whilst I tried to get some good ol'rest. I hope I can get some sleep tonight since I have to wake up at 5.30am to get ready for a work meeting in the city and I don't even have work tomorrow. I have to look immaculate as well. They better feed me food since I might not have time for a proper breakfast and meetings usually go for 2-3hrs. Also, I'll need to figure out what to do afterwards. I don't want to walk home from the bus stop. I'm lazy, I know. Shopping perhaps?

And I am absolutely loving this song <3

SK-II Facial Treatment Mask Review

This is by far one of my favourite facial masks! Definitely a high-end product retailing at AU$28.00 per piece but I purchased mine off SASA at US$7.20 each. They also come in bulk packs of 6 and 10. But for some reason on SASA it is cheaper to purchase them individually. Strange. Perhaps the manufacturing date differs.

To use: Position the mask over the eyes first and then to the rest of the face and pat firm. Lay back and relax for 20mins. Remove the mask and gently pat the remaining essence onto your face and neck. I like to keep the remaining essense in the pack and use it as a treat for my skin for the following nights. No product wastage :) Just make sure you keep the pack sealed tight or transfer into a sterile container.  

The mask feels great on and upon removal my skin felt and looked instantly brighter. My skin appeared clearer and felt softer and more toned. The essence from the mask was not heavy at all and absorbed quickly into my skin. The only downside is it does smell a bit strange in the beginning but nothing that can't be easily accustomed to. And it terms of fit, great.

The next day my skin felt softer, smoother and more radiant. Applying makeup was also an easier and a quicker task. It really helped in balancing my combination/oily skin and my blemishes are clearing up a little and are less visible.

I will definitely be stocking up on my next SASA haul. In fact, I've ordered some just now :) I just wished that I ordered more so I am not left waiting for it to arrive again.

Fish Markets !

Had an awesome day out yesterday with the mates. An appetising trip to be exact. What was suppose to be an 11am meetup ended up being 12pm due hesitating boys because "it's raining". It was raining on the way there but when we got there it stopped. Everybody is happy. I started off with a seafood platter for one (it's always for one) and then a half dozen of oysters. I would have went for the full dozen if my stomache was up for it. Damn, I wish I had. They were so gooood!

Seafood Platter

Yummy Oysters  <3

Me enjoying the oysters !
P.S. My Illamasqua Nail Varnish is stilling going chip-free ! Can you see?

After a great feast we then headed to Parramatta for some MB (Max Brenner's). It was so devine. I had a Chocorgasm! Been craving it for so long. My favourite, Tutti Frutti for One (again, for one). 

On another note, for once I don't look drunk or drunk sleazy in club photos !! 
And I can't tell whether the guy is Danny or Danny. Coincidentally, they both have the same name. One is a friend and the other is a neighbour. I don't think he knows or remembers me, but I remember him from primary school. And I'm not a stalker ! He was school captain or something like that. And if that's my neighbour, he just crashed the photo without knowing I'm his neighbour we do live like 8 houses apart, I think. Awkward. To make things even harder, they were both wearing a similar coloured shirt. I can't tell. But I'm thinking its my neighbour based on bicep size lol. Hi neighbour !

This is the funniest thing I've heard this week: (From the Movie Beauty Shop starring Queen Latifa)
"Is your body named Visa? Because it's everywhere I wanna go."

More photos please ..

I am really inefficient with my camera. I mean every time I go anywhere, I'd be lucky to have more than 50 photos of the night. Maybe I am having too much fun to pull out my camera and SNAP SNAP!
Proof? This is the only photo I took of Saturday's night out. I loved my outfit but I have no photos. I was wearing my new boots. Again no photos. Well done!

Me and Clara - gosh I love her <3

So I am going to set myself a goal to love my camera more and show it the love it deserves.

Love is not all around ..

Have you ever listened to a song with your heart?
From the first notes until the last, this song touched a part of me that I have forgotten. It didn't need any lyrics nor did it need a name. I was captured in that moment.

Hope you can also listen to and with your heart.

Lost all sense of time

My sleeping pattern is so out of line !
I slept at 4.30am this morning and got up at 1.30pm thinking it was 9am.
I'm sure going out this weekend will help. NOT!

Anyways I have settled in well into my my new bedroom and I LOVE the fact that I have a blank wall just to practice my luvoism exercises.

Wearing: top from Glassons $10.00; skirt from Supre $20.00; and owl necklace from Equip $19.99

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Wink

In case you have been living under a rock or have been hibernating this Winter, Illamasqua, the UK cult makeup brand has opened its counters in selected Myer doors across Australia. Myer Sydney City being one of them. You'll find them next to the fragrance department - come and say hi to me :) Working just steps away, I can't help but me mesmerised by the colour creations of Illamasqua, in particular their nail varnishes.
My first purchase ...

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Wink $34.00

Apologies for the unneatness I quickly did them at 12am in the morning just to blog about it. See how excited I am !!

Without Flash

I absolutely love the colour! I was looking for a lilac shade for some time now and my workmate had tried another colour a week back and raved about how long it had lasted without chipping. So I thought I'll give it a go. I'm going to test it myself to see how long an application would last on me. I'll update on how it goes. "Wink" is such nice shade of lilac. So chic and feminine. Two coats gave me amazing colour intensity and it dries real quick as well.
I forgot to take a picture of the applicator which is really clever. The square cap pulls off so you get a smaller applicator underneath, which helps with ease of application and is more ergonomic. Precision. Its hard to explain, so I'll post a picture later on.

Luvo time ...

Watched Origin tonight at Ricky's house. Queensland already had it so Clara and I were busy youtubing away. Laughing and excited over Lee Min Ho and Daniel Henney as if we were high school girls. Came across a makeup tutorial parody which was too hilarious to not share! Caution not for those who are easily offended ..

Late night posts are starting to become a habit ...

Barbie and Ken: "its like we were made for each other"

Went to watch Toy Story 3 in 3D today with some of the mates. It was really good. I really enjoyed it. Great for laughs, never a null moment. I loved it and would recommend others to see it as well.
When my mother asked me where I was heading off tonight and I told her I was going to watch Toy Story 3, she just stared at me in disbelief and asked if I thought that I was too old to watch a 'cartoons-a child movie'. There's nothing wrong with a young adolescent wanting to watch an animation right? I watched it anyways, I don't care what anyone says.

Anyways I've actually had the time to try out a product I recently purchased.
Bio'MAIN Blackhead Off Nose Mask 10g (from SASA USD0.70)
I was really surprised when I tried out this product. It was nothing I had imagined from the moment I opened the packet. I was really attracted to the "Chinese Traditional Medicine" label. However when I opened it up this black, thick and ink-like liquid came oozing out. It was really messy! Although it is a nose mask there was so much product that I also applied a thin layer to my chin, where I also suffer from clogged pores. I managed to get the product on but it really made a mess in my basin and there was still heaps left in the packet. I also had a bit of a hard time peeling it off since the sides took a bit of convincing to come undone.
Removing the mask, I managed to get most of the mask off but had to wash some of the residue. Despite the messiness, it did work! My pores felt instantly clearer and are also tighter. I still have to decide whether the result is worth the trouble.
