Love is in the air! How will you be celebrating V-Day this year? Maybe out to a romantic dinner with your significant other or watching Fifty Shades Darker (ps. you should go watch it, it's so good!) or you will be just chilling in your comfiest PJs and watching some chick flicks. Really when you think about it, it's just another day. However, it's a good day fills with love and optimism but it's not what it used to be. I feel like the meaning of Valentine's Day has changed. It was more for single people but now it's a day for people who are in a relationship already celebrating about being a couple. Valentine's day used to be a day about finding love and secret admirers...
If this Valentine's Day you will be spending it alone, why not treat yourself to a 'you day'. Why not change the meaning of Valentine's Day to a day of self-love and self-confidence?! Have a day for yourself and do the things that make you happy. It might seem a little silly to take yourself out on a date but it's a very rewarding solitary experience. Don't worry about what other people might think. Research have shown that spending time alone can boost your creativity and self-confidence.
As an introvert myself, I prefer much prefer to stay in rather than going out. I love staying in and just have a pampering sesh. Throwing my hair in a bun, wearing my comfy loungewear, putting on a face mask, whilst waiting for my nails to dry, catching up on my favourite TV programs. Bliss. Go and run yourself a bubble bath and eat that tub of ice-cream cause 'you day' also equals to 'cheat-day'.✌
Treat yourself to some sexay lingerie. You don't need someone or a reason to purchase some lingerie. Purchase and flaunt it for yourself. Wearing lingerie is a source of body empowerment. Finding the piece of lingerie that fits and looks good for your body type helps you feel comfortable with your own body. Impress yourself, put that lingerie on and look at yourself in the mirror and repeat after me, "Damn, I look hella good!". Check out Adore Me V-Day collection and indulge in some sexy lingerie!
Remind yourself how amazing you are because you are amazing and you deserve to treat yourself!!
Is this duo not the cheekiest, sexiest, most unique looking skincare products your eyeballs have ever seen?! Let me introduce you to Lady Gorgeous by ESJ Organic Skin Care - an Australian skincare brand that is vegan-friendly. Founder of ESJ Skin Care, Emmanuel Sam Joseph created this skincare line after tirelessly not finding skincare brands that work for his problematic skin. Emmanuel formulated and designed this two-step skincare that is suitable for all skin types. If you have sensitive skin, you may like to give these products a try as they are 100% natural and made with 84% organic ingredients. The artistic packaging definitely gets a 10/10 from me for its uniqueness. Both the cleanser and moisturiser come with a pump and one pump for each step is all you will need.
The cleanser is quite gentle to use and feels lightweight on the skin. It lathers well and does a good job at removing makeup. However, it doesn't remove waterproof makeup that well but if you double cleanse then it's fine. As for the moisturiser, it is lotion like in consistency and doesn't feel too heavy on the skin. It is easily absorbed into my skin and it doesn't make my skin feel greasy at all.
One thing that I do have to mention is how heavily and strong scented they are. I'm usually someone that doesn't mind skincare products that are scented but I am not fond of the scent these products have. The cleanser is milder but the moisturiser is quite overwhelming and the scent lingers for quite a while. I mean if your man were to lean in for a smooch, he will definitely be able to smell it. Other than that, I have nothing bad to say about it. It leaves my skin feeling clean, hydrated and smooth.
I have been sticking to this two-step skincare regime for a couple of months now and it never once broke me out. It's simple to use and gentle on the skin. It does exactly what it claims to do for your skin and you can use these products confidently knowing that they contain no nasties but natural ingredients for your skin.
Pssst! For the last few days of this month, this duo is on sale for $64.50 AUD instead of $129 AUD! Yup, that's right- 50% off! This would make an awesome Christmas gift for your gal pal or if you are stuck on what to get for your boyfriend, they also have the male version as well called 'The Gentleman' by ESJ. Otherwise, treat yo'self, your skin will thank you for it!

Hello! I hope you still remember me! Sorry that I went MIA. With only three weeks left of the semester, assessments are coming at me left, right and center. Please bare with me! I actually just got done with a presentation, so now I can squeeze in some time to write up this post...
This outfit post is for those of you who are in the fall season currently. The colour of the top just screams autumn to me. I actually don't wear a lot of red or orange but when paired with everything else black, it's quite comfortable to wear and adds that pop of colour that's quite flattering. I'm obsessed with the off-the-shoulders trend right now too. Still not sure about the choker trend though. For me, I like finding chokers that are more dainty and add that subtle touch to the outfit.
Okay, I better go and work on my other assignments!
