Oh wow. Come to think of it, the last time I used a backpack was when I was still in school. I have never use any since I left school! Backpack is pretty much a preferred bag for most people especially now that most backpack are made to hold laptop securely and comfortably. I’m a girly girl as you all may already know so it never cross my mind to style myself with one until recently, where I’ve seen lots of guys and girls carrying Gaston Luga backpack on Instagram. You can say I’m very selective with what I have on me and I definitely don’t mind a Gaston Luga!
Gaston Luga hailed all the way from Stockholm, Sweden. Yes, all orders made are shipped directly from Sweden. They are a Swedish backpack retailer and has quickly rose to instant favourite of many people of all ages and background being the top search for men’s / women’s backpack recommendation. Reason being? They are all about minimalistic design and I do notice that people nowadays are into simple yet stylish and versatile design. So it is not hard to fall in love with any Gaston Luga backpack. As someone who has never touched a backpack since the school days, I immediately knew what I want the minute I took a look at their website. It’s really not that hard if you are like me who are into minimalistic of everything 😀
Apologies on the late posting of this NEW Murad City Skin Duo. The plan was to do a review instead of the usual beauty news but then I realized I am going to be super busy until the end of the year so I scrapped the review plan. However don’t give up on me yet as I believe individual review will definitely be up. Just no idea when 😛
I can never stress how good Murad products are. They were also the very first sponsor for #IWillBeOkay Beauty Bag who agreed to be on board within 5 minutes of telling them about my campaign. So far I have received nothing but good feedback on the products received. Why am I telling you this? Well, Murad recently launched Murad City Skin Duo, consisting of City Skin Age Defense SPF 50 and City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer, and I am confident they are just as good! Yes I’m bias LOL.
Are you one of the people who got sucked in with Facebook ads? I never do until the Naka Kirei Enzyme ad came out and it created lots of hype around it. So I did a little digging on my own because I was super curious with the whole enzyme thing and how it can help with the wellness on the inside. As you know I’m all about living a healthy lifestyle and I’m wondering if my body is really lack of enzymes to help with whatever it is. I placed my order with one eye closed because of the price, which I’ll explain in a bit. When I talk about Naka Kirei Enzyme with my friends, I had a hard time explaining what it is. So I tell my friends that it’s something you pop half an hour before meal so that you don’t gain weight LOL. In a way it is what was claimed but the real fact is that it has more than just that.
I went to a Guardian event recently dressed casually as it was a dull week and the event I assumed will going to be a quick one. I knew there will be lunch served after the event and this dress from H&M is a tight one but since I don’t eat that much, it doesn’t bother me. I thought I was dressed too casual until a few ladies told me I look pretty as soon as I reached the venue. I guess it’s a nice dress afterall, eh?
Here’s a funny story. I had a discount voucher from H&M for registering for their newsletter way before H&M Online came about. They gave me a 20% OFF voucher and it is only to be used for store purchase only. I went to H&M with an intention of picking up a dress, saw this polka dot wrap dress, tried it and I couldn’t decide if I want to get this particular size or one size larger. Reason is, this dress is not stretchable and the only way to get into the dress is from the bottom. My size (the one I’m wearing) looked way nicer but a size larger is more comfortable and easier to get in. I left the store without this dress as I couldn’t decide. Fast forward to 2 weeks later, I found this dress on sale but one size larger. After a few stores visit, I accidentally stumbled upon this dress again. I bought it without much thinking. It’s half the price and it’s my size 😛
The basics in beauty such as facial cotton and cotton tips are never a topic or rather not spoken at all because it was often forgotten. Yes the products are the star of a show but I also believe the tools are equally important as well. I always stock up on facial cottons and makeup cotton tips whenever I see a deal at Guardian. Why Guardian? Because they happen to carry all three of my most used and favourite tool of all time! And no, this post is not sponsored by Guardian by the way LOL.
We often thought that in-house brands are not the best and so we like to avoid buying them and go for a more known brand instead. This is true to an extend and I do prefer to go for known brand most of the time, however I find it to be a different story when it comes to these facial cotton and cotton tips.
