Heart-to-Heart: Living With Depression

Living With Depression
10th October was World Mental Health Day. I posted something on my Instagram a day before that but I have been quiet about it here. I’m raising public awareness on mental health especially on depression through #IWillBeOkay ‘Fight Against Depression’ Awareness Campaign and I find it odd that I’ve been quiet about this important day.
Reason being, I fell back in depression.

I thought I had recovered. I haven’t fall into the depression hole since March 2017. I was happy, extremely happy. I was surrounded by good friends, I was busy with work. I was happy. Genuinely happy. But I was having anxiety attacks that I’m not even aware of. I remember my birthday 29th September just last week that I was out celebrating with friends. Everything was OK up until one point of time I shut down and needed to leave immediately. It is only the next day I realized that I had anxiety attack. I haven’t had any anxiety or panic attacks for quite a while so I didn’t realize that I was having one. That explains the need to get away from the place, situation and people asap. Most people are curious but never dare to ask me about life living with depression. I guess what they are curious are, how do you get on life with depression.


Natural Skincare – Inside and Out

Natural Skincare

We all want to stay young looking and to fight off those dreaded wrinkles as much as is possible but, we can’t fight age and win all the time. Irrespective of this, it makes sense that we age more gracefully and use nature’s store to help us maintain beautiful looking skin and to keep the body’s nutrition levels up. In this modern world, we live far from healthy lives. There are toxins through environmental issues, we eat food filled with unhealthy chemicals and nutrition may be dubious. We also need to exercise as much as possible and, when it comes to looking after our skin, we must start to feed our bodies on the inside and out.

It’s important to eat lots of fruits and vegetables and to monitor how many vitamins and minerals you are having. If you smoke, try to stop as this can have a devastating impact on your skin. Reduce the amount of time you spend out in the sunlight and, if you do plan to be outside for a length of time, use a good sunscreen. Reduce the amount of alcohol consumed and increase the amount of water that you drink as this will keep you hydrated. Stress can also play a considerable role in aging you so, to offset this, try to meditate.

Understanding Color Blind and Dyslexia, including Treatment Available

Color Blind
Growing up, up until these days I get ask often – “do you wear any specs?”.  And every time someone ask me that, I am proud to answer “no, I’m not wearing any”. Not even contact lens? That is usually the question that follows. Nope. Not even contact lens. However a few years ago I started suffering from watery eyes and that issue which seems small to everyone else has taken a toll on me. Having to be out in the public, chatting with other people with sticky, crying eyes is not comfortable. Not when that melts my eye makeup off. So I started to take notice of my eyes more. Even more so now after mom went through lasik. Creepy procedure for me lol.

Most of us are concern about cataract and all the common issue but do you know that majority among us suffers from color blindness? It is pretty much self-explanatory. Color blindness, which is also known as color vision defect, is a disability to see color or differentiate colors. How do you know if you are color blind? Take this test below.

5 Things You Need to Know About Unicorn Brushes

Unicorn Brushes 1
Unicorn, holo, rainbow, iridescent. These are what beauty enthusiasts are obsessed with from the recent trend. I think the key word is unique. Anything that is not the ordinary sells like hot cake. Then came the obsession with anything unicorn. And the Unicorn Brushes were launch and people go nuts!

The original Unicorn Brushes are not cheap and it is based on pre-order. Is there even such thing as the “original”? I don’t know. It’s the first to launch, it has better aesthetic look to it such as iridescent handle, evenly-made unicorn rainbow bristles and a unicorn brush pouch. I didn’t jump onto the unicorn brush bandwagon the minute it was out. I learnt through all the years of being a beauty enthusiast that some things are best to wait. And I was right this time. Unicorn Brushes are sold at RM90 per set of 5 or 10 on average, depending on the seller. Thanks to some shopping vouchers I obtained from some event, I had to browse through an online shopping portal that I discovered Unicorn Brushes selling for just RM11 per set of 5 or add RM4 to upgrade to a set of 10. But of course all the 10 pieces were sold out and I had to settle with a 5-piece set. I bought two different 5-piece set as I had to maximize my shipping fee. I got them weeks later and I hated them. Then I browse through the site again only to discovered the same seller changed the price to RM11 for a set of 10 pieces. This time I was determined to get another set but in plain white bristles. I got them weeks later again as seller informed me that it was sold out. When I got them, I was so happy with it. The plain white bristles with pastel purple handles are way better looking than the colorful bristles. Here are 5 Things You Need to Know About Unicorn Brushes.

“I only need this highlighter in my life” – NOT!

Everytime a brand released a new highlighter, you went crazy and swear THIS IS your highlighter and IT IS THE ONLY highlighter you need. You hunt for it, you bought it and then, another brand also released a new highlighter, you find yourself repeating the same reaction or process. And another brand, and another. The story goes on. “I only need this highlighter in my life”. How often have you said that or heard your friend said that? Too often 🙂 . “I only need this highlighter in my life” – NOT!

As much as I still go gaga or ooohhhs and ahhhhs over new highlighter releases, I don’t find myself wanting to purchase them. It’s getting stale. I find that everybody in the whole wide world is forever never ending releasing a new highlighter. It’s getting too repetition that I got bored and stopped buying highlighters. Let’s be honest here. Highlighter never finishes! I piled them up on my face every day and I don’t see that I’ll hit pan anytime soon. Let me show you my small little highlighter in my collection, which are my favourite and why I don’t purchase anymore highlighters.
