Question Tuesday – A Funny Take on Valentine’s Day

 

Hey guys! What’s up bloggers! Yes, it’s February 14th and needless to say today is Valentine’s Day.

Love is in the air! The one thing I love about Valentine’s Day is that it’s not only a day to celebrate your love with your significant other, children, and family but also to yourself.

Q: So, what’s your plans to celebrate this special day? 

A:  I’m going to stay away from restaurant (not because it $100 and it includes a rose and a complimentary Champagne toast!) but because I feel ain’t right to seeing table after table filled by other struggling couples who haven’t been out for a nice meal since the last Valentine’s Day.

Q: What’s your advice for single people on Valentine’s Day?

A: It’s been said that no one will ever love you until you learn to truly love yourself. And the best way to learn something is to teach it, so get out there and teach someone to love you! Then you will love yourself and they will love you, too, because you love yourself now that you’ve taught them to love you. Make sense?

Q: What’s the fun thing you do with your Valentine? And/or how will you celebrate Valentine’s day? Comment below if you’re alone or attached.

So, hun could we just stay home and get drunk!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Question Tuesday – #Q&A Talks

 

Hey guys! Welcome back to Question Tuesday! Today’s post is on #Q&A Talks. I really enjoy this series and hope you’d like it as much as I did.

Well, I’m just going to hop in right away.

Q1: What are the top 3 tips you would give to new blogger?

  1. Use wordpress. I know there are tons of platforms you can blog on but if you’re planning on doing it for a long term, then I would suggest you to go with self-hosted version of wordpress. I’ve been on wordpress since I started blogging and I’m happy with it.
  2. Do something interesting and then write about it. If you’re really stuck with writing then write about somethings that’s interesting or happening. It’s way easier to write about life as if you’re writing your diary or a journal. Or write a list post. Write a short story. Have an experience and then write about it.
  3.  Just start blogging and make it a point to write on a schedule as much as possible. Blogging is a habit and the faster you can train yourself to a blogging schedule the more successful you’ll be. More practice also means better posts!

Q2: What is your guilty pleasure? 

My guilty pleasure has to be pastries. I’m a carb person which means pastry bread, cookies, cakes or pies are my life. IMO, life would be pretty darn blah without a treat from time to time.

Q3: What is your secret to personality confidence?

Sometimes, I still struggle of what people think of my blog. It might just be something I think in my head but yes I need to see outside of my box and see my abilities and be willing to accept compliment from others.

Q4: What career advice do you have for women in their late 20s (25-29)?

Your late 20s are the time to jump start a career. You need to discover your perfect career path and then do it.  For instance, rather than holding out for your absolute dream job, it’s O.K. to take a job that isn’t ideal, as long as there’s something about the position that could lead to another better opportunity ddown the road.

Q5. If you could live in any fictional world, which would your choose?

I know this is so weird. I would want to live in the animation world as Hayao Miyazaki directed. His work gained him to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. I love all his movies.

Alright guys, that’s it for this blog. Comment below what you think of this post. I love to hear from you.

So ya, thanks for stopping by to read and I hope to see you again on the next one. Bye!

Sharon xoxo

An Honest & Emotional Health Update

 

hospital

Hi guys! I mentioned in the previous post about my health and today I’m just going to sit down and update you guys a little of what’s happening behind the blog. I’ve some health and body issues for quite sometime now and it’s just don’t seems to be getting any better. I kept telling myself that I’m going to blog about it but for some reason I keep on postponing it. But then after talking to my doctor yesterday, I thought I just fill you guys on what has been going on, in today’s post.

I’m postponing it because I’m shy and nervous. I hope at the end of this post, you guys would comment positive and encouraging things to say to help me and others who are in this situation out. I feel so alone sometimes but reading your comments and reading your posts makes me less alone, if that make sense!

I had a chronic injury for awhile but since last year I started having new symptom which was so weird. It may be caused by my pain that makes me feel depressed. So now, I’ve two issues that need to be helped. I’m not going to touch on that too much because different people have their ways to cope with it. It just that recently, it gets a little more annoying and more frequent! There are days, where I just don’t feel like doing anything. And then the  good days is when I can crawl out from my bed to sit down and write reviews, my beauty favorites and beauty hauls.

I feel that for the past few weeks, it just getting harder for me to feel motivated and I’m sort of falling behind with tons of products waiting to be reviewed. I don’t want to add more stress in my already depressed situation so I’m planning to just blog as the day goes.

It’s not over yet but a great lifestyle change for me. I haven’t been myself the past many months. I can say that this a very challenging and difficult time for me. I also want to mention that it wasn’t also like this all the time as I said earlier. My depression is really like a yo-yo.

I’ll still try to plan my blog and write when I’m more myself. And I really really appreciate you guys for been patient with me. I hope this post will explain a little bit of what is going to be, moving forward on this blog. I’m hoping to be able to do the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday blog posts and Thowback Thursday. On other time, I’ll try to also focus more on posting instagram and snapchat where you guys can subscribe or follow me there.

So, sorry that I won’t be able to post Saturday blog for now since I want to spend some real quality time with family as well. Hope you can understand where I am.

Thanks a million for be an awesome friend and for taking the time to read! Hope you’ve a lovely weekend [muak].

Sharon xoxo

Sephora Beauty Haul !

Friday Haul!!! Yipeee! I always enjoy doing beauty haul. You guys might know now that I  am obssessed with makeup. I love to shop at the drugstores, retail stores, high end stores and sometime online stores. I prefer to go to the store to get my makeup stuff but sometimes if I can’t get the particular makeup that I wanted to try it on, then I’ll have to get them online.

tarte bronzerTarte swatch 2

Tarte Amazonian Clay Mineral bronzer. Came in a nice square box with smooth matte texture. This bronzer doesn’t have shimmer on it. The color pay-off is absolutely great. The texture is pigmented and offer nice bronze contour. I simply used a circular motion when applying this bronzer and  the result is fabulous.

Tarte tannerTarte Amazonian Clay Mineral swatch

This Brazillian Self Tanner is quite a treat. It came together in the same box as the Amazonian Clay Mineral Bronzer. Don’t be surpirsed by the color of the cream which I squeezed out a bit for swatch. Well, the color component is like dark brown/black. After 8 hours since my swatch on my hand, the stain was still there.

Be sure that you only apply them of  the body eg. the elbow, knee and ankles. Since fall is almost here I will have to keep this for next summer if I plan to do some self tanning. For those of you who are enjoying tropical season, this would be a nice way to get tan at the comfort of your own home. I included the info I extracted from Tarte for ways to prepare the tanning session.

Info on how to use from Tarte website:

Make sure skin is dry before application. Use Tarte’s unique blending mitt for an easy, no-mess, streak-free tan. Dispense at least a quarter-sized amount of self tanner to the mitt and apply to one body part at a time in long even strokes until the bronze color is uniform. Allow self tanner to absorb for 10 minutes before dressing. Wait at least 8 hours before showering, shaving and sweating to allow a seamless tan to fully develop. Use Brazilliance 1-2 times a week to maintain a gorgeous, natural-looking tan.

The next item that I got is this Sephora Color Bronzer. In it, there were lip gloss and a bronzer with the 8 pretty color eyeshadows. I feel that the eyeshadow are a little bit chalky and lots of glitter or shimmer. For those who loves the bing and gleam these eyeshadow is for you. Out of the 8 colors I only like the dark brown matte which was quite pigmented and I wore it for my review.

Sephora HaulHot Lava lip gloss

Last but not least, is this incredible lip gloss from Smashbox – the Santigolden Age Legendary in Hot Lava. There was another color in All Gold E’vrywhere in sheer copper sparkle but I chose this sheer red/orange instead. Be excited with this wonderful vibrant, glassy-finish gloss. Absolutely, an everyday wear. To be worn alone or with a nice lipstick.

When is the last time you shop online? Leave you comment below.

Thank you for reading and stay Beautiful!
