Youtube | Bye Bye Brunei + Update

I   N E E D   A   B R E A K .

To put it bluntly. 

With all that's going on right now, it's best I take a break from the blog. For the past month, I've been packing for the move, preparing for studies, saying goodbye. To focus on this website is hectic for such a time. And though, I still want to write, I decided this was the best time to explain.

So I filmed a video.

Five Things in August

In all its bittersweet divine?

And though, it could just be me in chosen ignorance. To remain blissful among my last month here in Brunei. As I prepare for my time in UK, I choose to spend this month with friends and family. With some exciting times, I hope to remember forever.

Here are a few things that happened in August!

19 Things To Know Before Turning 19

And yet it's so different.

At the end of my teenage hood. Almost an adult. No longer a child. Life stops staying a waiting game and becomes a rushed something. Unsure of what is to come but still hoping it's good. In the grand scheme of things, 19 is nothing. But there are still something you should learn.

So here are 19 things you should know before 19...

Youtube | ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Swatches

Applied on my lips in one single afternoon/evening. All for this video.

Ever since the ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip reviews, I have been toying with the idea of a swatch video. Even though my general rule of thumb is 'keep videos visual.' Example; if you can do it on the blog, don't make it a video. Swatch videos were bored me if I could search for photos instead.

But I made an exception. So I filmed the swatches, with a twist.

Usually, I have some notion what a post will include. Some cohesive thoughts, photos and structure. Lists or anecdotes or reviews. Not this one though, at least for this particular post. My arbitrary Birthday post. To celebrate my birth, because that is what it is.

Today, I turned nineteen and I feel nothing.

Guest | The Mervyn Monologues : Discovering The Dutch

Whom I bid farewell at the airport. I clutched their clothes, whispering words of encouragement and wishing I came along. I waved goodbye and held back tears. And held my friend back who did cry. Three friends left for the Netherlands, for further studies. One of them was Mervyn.

Mervyn from The Mervyn Monologues is one of my closest friends. His face popping up in many, many, many personal posts. I watched him and two beautiful girls leave to Amsterdam almost week ago. Now, he resides in Utrecht. Where he will experience the wonders of a new country, the joys of a new life and start anew.

And so I asked him to write for me. About this new world untouched.

Youtube | How to Wear Dark Lips

As is everyone nowadays.

Dark lipstick requires confidence to wear. To be so bold and becoming. Drawing attention to the femme smile. It will beckon and it will seek and it will be beautiful. But dark lipstick can be quite unforgiving. A difficulty to attain. I note by the stained teeth or over-lined lips.

So with three lipsticks in hand, here is an easy way to wear dark lips!
