July Wishlist ✮

JulyWishlist

I missed compiling wishlists so this was a really fun post for me to put together. I hope you all have been able to purchase or receive some items on your own personal wishlists! =)

① T o o  F a c e d  N a t u r a l  M a t t e  E y e s h a d o w

JulyWishlist-1

I’ve been really into natural makeup these days and I think this palette will be the perfect addition to my eyeshadow collection! I already own a few Too Faced palettes and I’ve never been disappointed before so I’m sure this palette will be no exception! =)

② A – L i n e  M i n i  D r e s s

JulyWishlist-2

I love dresses, I wear them all the time no matter what the season is. I like this dress because it is very flattering and accentuates the figure perfectly. It also is a great layering piece and I like that it is long-sleeved so I can wear it for the remainder of winter.

③ C a r d  H o l d e r

JulyWishlist-3

I want one of these because when I go out, I usually just carry my cards around with me in my pocket but I feel that having a card holder will keep everything all in one place and will just make it more easy for me to carry them. I also just love the soft mint colour of it, I find it very pretty!

A short wishlist this month but I still hope you enjoyed this post anyway! Let me know if you guys have any products in particular that you have been eyeing for awhile and would like to purchase! I’d love to know. ♡

The Eyeshadow Tag

TheEyeshadowTag

Thank you for nominating me to do this tag Alyssa!

Rules:

  1. Tag 3 bloggers to answer these same questions
  2. Those bloggers will TAG 3 more bloggers of their choice with the same questions & rules
  3. No tag backs

Questions:

1. How many eyeshadows do you own?
I own quite a lot of eyeshadows! I would say roughly 30 to 40 but I’ve never counted them one by one.

2. What was your first ever eye shadow?
I honestly don’t know if this is for sure my first ever eyeshadow but I believe it was a quad by Estee Lauder! My mum doesn’t use eye makeup so she always gave me all the free gift with purchases.

3. What is your most worn eye shadow?
Right now, probably my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette! =) I’ve been using the shades Marzipan and Salted Caramel a lot.

4. What is your favourite brand for eye shadows?
This is tough! I don’t have a lot of eyeshadows by one single brand so it’s difficult to say. However, I do love my Naked 3 palette so I would have to go with Urban Decay.

5. What is your favourite finish?
My favourite finish would probably be shimmery! I love my matte shadows but I often gravitate towards one shadow looks on an everyday basis particularly for uni so if I could only use one eyeshadow, I always want something that has a touch of glam to it!

6. What is the last eye shadow you bought?
It was an eyeshadow stick by Missha that I ordered off eBay.

7. How many eye products do you currently have in your bag?
None! I very rarely carry makeup around with me except for a tinted lip gloss balm.

8. What eye shadows do you use to rock a smoky eye?
I’m a huge fan of brown smoky eyes! I like to use warm brown toned shades but I always switch them around and play with different palettes when I do a smoky eye.

9. How do you store your eye shadows?
I have them all stored in a drawer in my drawer unit and they’re kind of a huge mess right now. =P I know where everything is though so if I’m looking for something in particular, I know exactly where I’ll find it.

10. What eye products are you currently lusting over?
I want an eyeshadow quad from Charlotte Tilbury!

I tag AmeliaChanteru and Tezzy!

The School Tag

TheSchoolTag

So Ellen tagged me to do this and of course, being the tag crazy person that I am, I definitely wanted to participate! I’ve also never seen this one around before but I thought it would be interesting to answer some questions that are different from the tags I’ve already done. =) I’m in university now so I’m going to answer the questions as though I’m a high school student again!

What is your favourite subject in school?
It was definitely Maths. I liked it a lot because there’s always a correct answer whereas in subjects such as English, how well you do depends on who marks your work and that really bothered me!

What is your least favourite subject in school?
I’ve never really absolutely hated a subject but I would probably say geography? I just didn’t really find it fascinating at all. =P

How many detentions have you had?
I’ve never had a proper detention before! I’ve had those minor ones in primary school where if you didn’t read enough books for the week, you’d have to sit in a room with other people during recess LOL.

Are you a class rebel or a teacher’s pet?
I wouldn’t say I’m one or the other. I would put myself in the middle!

What was your favourite year in school?
This is so hard! I really enjoyed most of high school except the final year. I would probably go with year 10? A lot of things happened that year but it was overall just such a fun time with all my friends!

What was your least favourite year in school?
Probably the final year, year 12! It was so stressful preparing for university entrance exams and I cut off a lot of social activities because of it, and I truly regret that so much now!

Who was your first friend in school?
My first friend in primary school was a girl called Uvrashi! She was my best friend at the time before I moved houses and schools. My parents actually told me that one time she bit my arm really hard so they got called in by the principal and my arm was really bruised and purple LOL. I had no idea about this until I was in high school!

Your most vivid school memory?
There’s so so many. I’ve had so many hilarious memories from high school. One memory was when we played ‘Silent Library’ during a photography class (we never did any work in that class haha) but it was the most hilarious thing ever. If you guys haven’t watched it before, definitely YouTube it! Japanese game shows are seriously so hilarious.

Who is your favourite teacher in school?
Our year advisor, Mrs Dickson. She was the biggest sweetheart, always caring and looking out for all of us. She also dedicated a day every month since year 7 (the first year of high school) where she would bake delicious cupcakes for everyone at the end of their birthday month!

Who is your least favourite teacher in school?
I wouldn’t want to say her name because I feel bad but she had a horrible temper. She was always angry and very mean! Everyone was always scared to even be in the same vicinity as her. She eventually left though!

Have you ever skipped class?
Not without my parents knowing! It was mainly on the last day of the term where we wouldn’t have been doing any work anyway.

What’s the biggest fad you’ve had in school?
In the beginning of high school, everyone was obsessed with using bags from Supre and I definitely fell into that fad. I remember buying clothes from the store just so I could get the bag that comes with all purchases!

Worst teacher joke ever?
What do you get when you mix sulfur, tungsten, and silver? SWAG. (Sorry, that was pretty bad…)

3 Day “Post A Quote” Challenge [Part 1]

All About The Blogger Tag

AllAboutTheBloggerTag

Bella from BellaNinaBeauty tagged me to do this and of course I never turn down tags so here are my questions to the questions!

1. Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog to just use my time more creatively. I’ve had interest in doing beauty reviews online since probably around 2008 or 2009 and I always held it off until I suddenly decided one day this year to just give it a go. =)

2. Do you like your blog name?
Yes, I definitely do like it! It’s a name I’ve been associated with for awhile now so I would never not like it.

3. How long do you plan on having your blog?
Definitely as long as I can! I don’t plan on deleting it anytime soon or at all!

4. Where do you get your inspiration (for your blog) from?
I’m not entirely sure. I didn’t draw inspiration from anywhere in particular! I’ve just always loved everything pink and girly. =P

5. Do you normally create an outline before you do a post, or do you just go with the flow as you make the post?
I always go with the flow in my own posts but if I’ve been approached by a company or a representative then I do make sure I have an outline with me so that I cover all the points they need and want me to!

6. How long does it normally take you to finish your posts?
It depends on what kind of post I’m doing. Normally I can get a post done in an hour or so but I do tend to break it up into several seatings so I can’t completely calculate how long exactly!

7. How many times a week do you try to post?
I definitely try to at least twice a week!

8. Do you find it hard to maintain your blog?
It is especially difficult when I have other commitments but it’s not something that bothers me just because I love blogging so much.

9. If you have one, what is your follower goal?
I want to hit 5,000 followers!

10. Who do you tag to do this next? (Optional)
Absolutely anyone who is reading and wants to do this tag too!

Compliments That Aren’t About Physical Appearance

Beauty Bares All Tag

BeautyBaresAllTag

1. Spring, summer, winter, or fall?
Definitely spring for me! I love wearing dresses and I enjoy warm weather that isn’t too humid. =)

2. What does your ideal date notice and compliment you on?
Probably just that I simply look nice to be honest! It shows that they’ve noticed I’ve put in the effort to look good and presentable!

3. Would you rather give up lipstick, hair products, or mascara for an entire year?
Probably hair products! I really rarely use them anyway! If anything, I only use heat protectant on occasion. =P

4. If you could leave just one message for the world to hear, what would that message be?
This is so tough, I’ve never really thought about it before. It would probably be something along the lines of, “always keep pursuing whatever your heart desires no matter what anyone says and no matter the circumstances because no hard work goes unpaid”. I guess it’s a really cliche message but I think it’s really important!

5. A genie appears and offers you a wish. What one beauty task would you never perform again?
Doing my brows! If I could have flawless brows, that would be amazing haha.

6. You have two options: money or happiness? Additionally: infinite wardrobe or flawless face?
Definitely happiness! More money, more problems. =P And to be honest, just being simply and genuinely happy is the best feeling in the world. I don’t know who else would be on the same side of this with me but I would actually probably prefer a flawless face!

7. Are you a tea lover, a coffee hound, or a fan of something stronger?
I’m definitely 100% a tea lover. I love drinking green tea daily, even more so now because it’s getting colder here!

8. Have you had a “perfect day”, and what did it entail?
Wow, this is so tough. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever really had a “perfect day” before. (Sorry for the super disappointing answer!)

9. What do you splurge on the most?
Definitely lip products. I just can’t get enough of them and it’s a problem!

10. I have not lived until I’ve seen _____!
Disneyland. I really need to go there right now!

11. What are you guilty of doing when nobody’s watching?
Dance! LOL I think dancing is really fun but I’m definitely not the best at it and wouldn’t want anyone to see. =O

I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve done a tag, I had a huge phase of posting so many different ones before! =P I missed posting these and I always receive such positive responses from them so I hope you enjoyed this one too! =)

Update: 6 Month Blogging Anniversary & I’m Back!

6Month

I finished my exams yesterday and I am so glad to have my time and freedom back! =) I also realised that during the time I was gone, it was my 6 month blogging anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been 6 months already, time has flown by so fast in not just in how long I’ve been blogging, but also just how fast the year has gone by already. As always, I really do thank each and every one of you for supporting me throughout this time and also being so incredibly understanding of me having to take time off so I could study for my exams. It really does mean so much to me, words really cannot explain how grateful I am of all of you guys!

Now that I have a lot more free time, I will be posting more often again! I have been slacking off on reviews because if you haven’t read in my previous posts, I did lose my phone a few months ago and now that I’ve been using an older phone, I’m no longer able to take good quality pictures of my face. =( I’m still working around it and as soon as I figure it out, I will be doing more reviews again! I have a lot of products from my last haul that I want to update you guys on and I really want to write about them. Anyway, despite this, I am planning on coming up with more new posts for you guys that I hope you will look forward to and enjoy! I hope you’ve all been well!
