Reflecting back on 2013

Hello there!
I thought I would take the time to look back on what I’ve learned, experienced and achieved over the past 12 months of 2013, so here it goes!

Honestly I think this is one of the best years I’ve had. I’ll definitely say I’m not the most positive person, based on a past me I was a hardcore slut-in, anti-social and at least VERY negative. I can really look back and feel really silly just by the thought of all the things I was throwing away, my health for them being one of the important ones, I was really just a silly confused girl when I was younger. A bit too bad that I was so negative to enjoy all the good and positive things my life, that were still offered me even though I had the worst of the worst times of my life until now.

I managed to overcome something that literally had been eating me for years, ruining myself and most chances of having a regular social life with my friends; without being paranoid to spill the secret. And that’s sorely to my boyfriend, he made me realize that I can overcome it if I truly wanted it, for someone or for yourself – I choose him over the thing eating me as hard as it was to let go he helped me and I am forever grateful for him saving me from it.

2013 have meant Love, love have come into my life. Never been this happy before finding someone that loves me regardless of my past or what I’ve done, I’ve never met someone like him in my life and I never want him to leave.. So I want to thank you 2013, for putting the most amazing guy into my life.

Guess I could say since I’ve tried to look more positively on my life, I’ve become more bold and I suppose that’s a good thing in my case, finally stop being a push-over and “too-nice” towards people taking advantage of me. In the terms of like, “I deserve to be happy too” kinda feel, I do want it and I am trying to earn it, working for it every day so I can be happy and make everyone else I care about happy if I can. It’s not that bad to want something that’s good for you, no?

Other than that, I’ve taken a lot of chances, accepted change and sacrificed tons of things to be where I am now, even if it isn’t ideal for most, I am to gladly repeat 2013 with all it’s bad and horrible sides along with the happiness I’ve been obtained as well as the love I’ve been given. So being spontaneous can be added to life qualities now I guess, haha.  

I think I’ll put body image in another post instead because that’s going to be looong one, I’ll spill all my secrets in that one, so I guess look forward to it? Hahaha.

I would say that pretty much sums it up, 2013 started out freakishly bad, who the hell have their storage room set on fire by kids on the 2nd day of the new year. Sigh. Not just that but a lot of things uptil my 19th birthday (the first 3 months of 2013) was terrible. Utter horror, I start cringing just thinking about it -_- ..

I’ll leave it at this, not as long as it could have been!

Warm Christmas Greetings from Bangkok ♥彡

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope it’s been a nice relaxing time with holidays. Not much to say, I’m a little light headed whilst I write this, I've managed to catch my 3rd cold this month, wow. But over all I missed out on my “wish list” post this year, yet again lol. Though I couldn't have asked for anything more than to spend it with the person I love CLICHE I KNOWWWW (starts playing All I want for Christmas is You, trololo)

I’ll leave to you the pictures I’ve collected of Merriness and yumminess of this season in Bangkok, some apologizes as well as in belated posts (2 reviews : B) but---- I’ll post it in a couple of days from now also I made a little video if you’re not much of a still picture person, here’s some moving pictures for you! And lots of bokeh effect goodness, cause bokeh makes a video mysterious or cute. I choose cute this time, or tried to lol.

Etude House Dear Darling Tint - Review

So hubby bought me my first Etude House
makeup product, this lovely lip tint from their Dear Darling line!

I use this religiously every single day, mainly because the color of it "Orange Red" is so refreshing! I use it as blush just to look like I have some sort color on my skin..thus I look very pale and tired all the time. It's a huge help and long lasting too! Really wanted to give the 'orange' color trend a go, I felt rather drawn by it great thing hubby went ahead and just bought it for me after just looking at it. 

Guess puppy eyes really do work, muahahhahaha

It looks different when applied than what you would expect from looking at the product itself without having the change to try it out. Still a gorgeous color, you wouldn't be disappointed; it's adorable and sassy. 

Sorry for using MS Paint but, I don't have anything better atm.. u.u
It's a very subtle color, depending on your makeup and your own preferred makeup routine, I would say it would have more of a pop if I had done a gradient (applying some BB cream/foundation to the lip line and worked the gradient fade style, the orange would appear stronger) of course the more you apply the stronger the color becomes. I like just using a single swatch, just pinch of color is good enough for my casual look~

(The pics are taken in natural lighting)

I love the way the color looks on my lips, would be one of the first times I actually liked putting something color full on my mouth instead of in it (eating you know, lol) this is only one single swatch of the tint, I prefer this light tinted appearance than adding too much of it (cause I easily wear mine off by rubbing my lips unconsciously) that would be a waste of this awesome lip tint! I've already used it quite a lot  as it comes as my every day handy dandy lip tint (meaning basically my only one. LOL)

 Rating: ★★★★★

I might just be too much of a newbie when it comes to rating cosmetics hence I've never really owned that many, I'm not experienced when it comes to makeup either but, I absolutely adore this product and love it!

side note special: doesn't wear off with kisses † ▽ †@)
