The Good Life: Turning 19

Hi there, Diemmy here! Excuse me for this highly sentimental and cliché post that I am about to write but I thought it would be a nice gesture to have an obligatory post about turning 19. So here goes… Nothing.

I must admit, I have been blessed with the good life for the past 19 years. Looking back, yes I have experienced the ups and downs but then again, things could have been worst. They say adding another number to your age makes you wiser and in a sense, I guess that is true. Over the past 19 years, I have been able to learn so much and as a matter of fact, I am continuing to discover and grow as a human being.

Sometimes I feel as if things in life are a pit hole, but then I take a moment to look back at all the things that I am grateful of – my family, my friends, and my achievements. I may not have made it to my optimal destination in life but I am still going and that’s okay.

My main lesson in life is that sometimes life can be a mess but that is only temporary. As cliché as it sounds, you have the ability to change that and take control of how you want things to be.

This is just the beginning of an Amazing Life (quote Michelle). Just remember, adding a number to your age doesn’t change anything. We will always be young and free. I am young. I am free. And no matter what happens in life – keep going!

A message for everyone out there: When things get dull, just breathe and if all else fails – just remember to Shake it Off.

Much love,

Eyebrow Game

By: Michelle

Eyebrows are the features that frames your whole entire face. Luckily I am blessed in the eyebrow department, and didn't over pluck when I was young. However, I do need to fill in my eyebrows since my ends are not that great. For me, if my eyebrows look odd, then my whole make-up is just wrong. So picking eyebrow products that works best for you is very important in the make-up department.

I have been using two products to do my eyebrows and I am loving it. The first one is Missha's Smudge Proof Eyebrow Pencil. I use this first to lightly fill in my eyebrows. I can not stress to you how important it is to use a light hand because it can end up look extremely dark and harsh... and we don't want that now do we?!

The second product is new to my eyebrow routine and that is Etude House's Color My Brows. This is an eyebrow tint and it's amazing. I lightly brush this through my eyebrows. It tints my eyebrows, making it look fuller. I also find that it makes my eyebrows stay on a lot longer, preventing it from smudging off throughout the day.

Those are the two products that I depend on to have a good brow. What eyebrow products do you use to have achieve your strong eyebrow game?  |   youtube  |  pinterest  |  bloglovin

Tea for Two?

By: Diemmy

So I have a collection of tea stashed in my room… just for emergency purposes. I love to have tea during those winter nights or when I’m feeling stressed out since it really does act as a soothing tool. I don’t have expensive teas but they are enough to keep me sane with half the things that happen in my world. In fact… I should make a cup of tea for myself right after finishing this blog post.

So the teas I have are…
♥ TWINNINGS: Infusion Green Tea Grapefruit and Pineapple
This is such a great infusion and far from what I expected it. There is a really nice mix of both grapefruit and pineapple – mostly the pineapple.

♥ TWINNINGS: Infusion Cranberry and Pomegranate
This use to be my favourite tea however, it has been replaced by Lipton’s Peach Mango. However, I still do like it but it requires a hint of sugar to taste the cranberry and pomegranate kick.

♥ TWINNINGS: Classic Traditional Afternoon
I was expecting this tea to be a bit different to normal black teas but it turns out it taste just the same… well to me anyway. Currently it’s a tea that I’m struggling to finish.

♥ LIPTON: Peach Mango
My absolute favourite tea of all time has to be this one! I love the blend of peach and mango. This tea really gives off a dark taste of the flavor and in fact it will be tonight’s tea of choice!

. . . . . . . .

Yes this post is a bit random… but you can’t blame me for loving tea right? Do you like to drink tea too? Well then, let's have some tea for two, shall we? 

Much love and until next time,
Diemmy.  |   youtube  |  pinterest  |  bloglovin

Primer Loving

Hello lovelies! I thought I would share with you my current favourite face and eye primers. I use primer every time I do my make-up. When I go out, I tend to go for several hours. So using a primer is a must so my foundation or eye make-up doesn't go slipping and sliding off my face. Without it, it makes my whole make-up feel wrong.

My favourite face primer would have to be Etude House's Goodbye Pore Ever. I have quite a lot of pores on my nose, and this just does it's job - filling in my pores. I also find my foundation lasts a lot longer with this on, and I tend to get less oily. With this product, I am killing quite a couple of birds with one stone!

I've also been loving Etude House's Proof 10 Eye Primer. I used to never use primer but after going through my make-up I found this product and thought I should give it a go. Thankfully I did because now I can't go without it if I apply eyeshadow. It makes my eyeshadows stay on surprising a lot longer!

What's your current favourite primer?  |   youtube  |  pinterest  |  bloglovin

Memories in Korea

By Diemmy 

So it's safe to say... I MISS KOREA and I'm pretty sure Michelle feels the same way too. Recently, I took out a bag of photos to discover that it was the polaroids that we had taken during our trip to Korea. We may or may have not went crazy with polaroid taking in Korea but we thought "Why not?" since we were going overseas and making memories... (sorry about all the cheesiness). 

Looking over the polaroids really brought back all the memories that we had in Korea and it's save to say that WE LEFT OUR HEARTS IN KOREA. So I just thought it would be nice to share some of the polaroids that we took during our trip with you guys!

Make-Up Area Motivation

By: Michelle

This morning I had the sudden motivation to clean. On top of my list was my make-up area. My make-up area has been a complete mess for the past month. Everything was everywhere, especially my lipsticks that was overcrowding my already small space. I finally cleaned and now I feel like my whole life is organised. Yes, make-up area clean = an organised life. There's so much space now and everything is placed where it should be. Hopefully I will maintain this for quite some time. I'm so happy with it. I think this will also motivate me to film more beauty related videos. In fact, I might even film a get ready with me video tomorrow.

On another note, if you see any products you want for me to review, please let me know!

What's your make-up area like? Clean? Or a bit messy?

Much love,

Costco Adventure

Just a few random shots of our day on the 2nd of October. We spent the day with two of our lovely friends, Lilian and Caroline. Lilian wanted to buy a polaroid camera, so we headed off to Costco in the afternoon. The weather was so nice where the drive felt like a mini-road trip... despite it being a 15 minute car ride. Diemmy recently purchased a camera, the Sony Alpha 5000, so we decided to whip out the new gem and test it out. It's the first time we vlogged on the new camera and it's such a huge difference from our phones. The quality is amazing, which you can see from the pictures down below. We'll upload a vlog soon, most likely the beginning of next week so watch out for that!  |   youtube  |  pinterest  |  bloglovin

The Lorac Pro Palette

By: Michelle

Hi everyone! So, today's post will be about a product everyone has heard of... the Lorac Pro Palette! My beautiful friends surprised me with this palette for my birthday. I remember when I unwrapped the present and saw what it was... my heart skipped beats. It was not what I was expecting at all!

The palette comes with 16 versatile colours. The first row consists of matte colours, whereas the bottom are all shimmery eyeshadows. My first swatch of this palette and my heart melted. I am in love. The eyeshadows are so pigmented, smooth and buttery. Just a slight touch of the product and it would be enough. 

The packaging itself is very sleek. It is slim and lightweight so it's very good for travelling. I am definitely bringing this palette with me when I go overseas at the beginning of the year. 

If you are looking for a high quality eyeshadow palette, the Lorac Pro is one that you should consider. You would not be disappointed. To be honest, when I talk about this palette to anyone, my inner fangirl comes out. I squeal and do a little dance because the palette is amazing

Sadly I didn't have time to do swatches of the eyeshadows itself, but if you want swatches then let me know by commenting down below!

I hope you are all having a lovely week!

Much love,
Michelle.  |   youtube  |  pinterest  |  bloglovin
