Product Review; Bioderma

This might not come off as a huge surprise to you all beauty fanatics as this has been around quite some time now but after living under a rock *Not literally*, I have finally discovered Bioderma. 
Bioderma is from a french skin care line that covers from cleanser to toner to moisturizer and many different products in between. If you are not a big fan of micellaire water's then I rather you skip this post right now before I bore to all to death, but if you have never tried a micellaire water solution and would love to read some reviews before getting your hands on one, then keep reading! 

Bioderma does not contain perfume or any harsh chemical that could dry your skin out nor will it irritate your skin. It comes with two packaging of the same kind, "Crealine TS H2O" or "Sensibio H20". They are the same but bioderma just repackaged them to make them a little more different. I own both of the bioderma solution, one for oily skin and another for normal skin. I was very skeptical about using a micellaire solution water and also quite brave as I have super sensitive skin and I could not use any products that have harsh chemicals in them. 

Bioderma generally removes your makeup and also cleanses your face but I use it more of a makeup remover because I don't feel like my skin would be clean with just one swipe of a cotton pad. The solution comes off as a clear, odorless solution. As a little demonstration below, I used a cotton pad soaked with Bioderma solution and removed my makeup and this would be the outcome. You are able to use it on your eyes as well and good news is that It does not sting your eyes (nothing's worse than getting makeup remover in your eye and hopping around the bathroom like a bunny trying to get rid of it) 

I have been using Bioderma for over a month and I have seen results that has shocked me, the tiny spots that looks like hyper-pigmentation which is not have so far disappeared. Bioderma comes in 3 different sizes, the 150, 250 &500ML bottle sizes and also the prices varies depending on your drugstore/pharmacy. Unfortunately, Bioderma is not worldwide however you can order it online or you could ask a friend to get his/her hands on it for you. I have searched a couple of websites that sells bioderma at a cheap price and so far I found it on Ebay so if you would like to get your hands on Bioderma click here 

I hope you have enjoyed this review and hope you all would give Bioderma a thought and also bioderma has been seen in parts of England, Hongkong, Canada, US &mainly in France.

Where have I been?

Hi my lovelies! 

As promised that I would update my blog every Monday, Wednesday &Friday however I am as guilty as I'll ever be. I have been super busy and occupied the entire week and I cannot wait to share with you what's going on. So keep scrolling and let's get started. 

♥Work ♥

I have started a part time job for the time being before heading off to uni as my little experience and also to pass the time away rather than sitting at home and not doing anything productive. Work has kept me busy for the time being and being with little kids have never been so much fun. I work as an assistant teacher and all I can say is that I wake up every morning looking forward to another day at work. 
They say kids can be a handful but I have the sweetest and most well behaved children ever. 
So sad that I'll have to leave them before the term ends. 

♥Gym ♥

I have not only picked up the habit of eating healthy but also I have started working out, this is not entirely because I want to lose weight but I also want to keep fit. 
I start the day out with work and after work I would head to the gym for about 2 hours every 3 times a week and either do some cardio or I would tone up.
I couldn't be happier with the way I have been living my life lately, not that i wasn't happy before but I have finally found something I really love. 
I work out 3 times a week and take the rest of the days off. 

♥Dinner Dates ♥

I have been going out every friday night for the past 2 weeks with my best friend for our so called "dinner dates", which is funny because she's been my best friend for a decade and it's funny how we call it our dinner dates when it's really not. 
So far we had sushi night and pasta night, the upcoming meal would be thai night. I am so excited for our little food feast, I'd gain a few pounds, you reckon? 
The lack of social life i have right now is really not helping me in any way considering all my friends are either in the UK or still in school, I therefore have no friends to talk to *Jokes* 

So these are the 3 things that have been keeping me busy for the entire week which is why the lack of updates, but I have a post that will be posted right after this I promise you. 
What is it that have kept you busy? (: 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend

How to get radiant glowing skin.

Hello Everyone! 

So it's 2013, another year has flown by and we are welcoming the new year. The only thing that can make a person look more youthful and even healthier is by having radiant glowing skin. Here are a few tips I would love to share with you all that has helped me achieve that radiant glowing skin. 

1) Eating healthy.

This probably would come by as a no surprise to most of you, if you've been an avid reader on my blog. Eating healthy is the way to go to achieve a healthy lifestyle or even having better skin. Cut down on chocolates, sugary and even salty food and go for healthier food for example; Vegetables. The oiler the food is and the more oil you consume, the more your face will breakout. 

2) Eat more antioxidant 

Eating more antioxidant will help free radical from your skin and will help repair your skin, indulge more in fruits that have high antioxidant. Even if you consume the smallest plate of fruits, it will do wonders to your skin. 
3) Limit your sun exposure. 

Having a little bit of sun exposure is good for you however, due to the long period of time outdoors this will cause major damage to your skin. This however, can be helped by eating more antioxidant for example; fruits. Eating plenty of antioxidant can help you escape the fact of you having a sunburn, so eat up guys! 

4) Moisturize with natural oil. 

Coconut oil is the best natural oil out there to help soothe your skin even Miranda Kerr uses coconut oil part of her daily routine. Coconut oil will help with dry skin, ezcema and other skin problems that you may be facing. Add a drop of coconut oil in your salad and eat it up, you can also use coconut oil on your hair to help your condition your roots. 

These are the top 4 tips I can give you to help with getting radiant skin, of course exercising is part of it! Exercise every single day for about 2 hours whether it's running or lifting weights or just taking a brisk walk you can lose calories and yet have healthy glowing skin!

Happy glowing! ☺

2012 Recap.

Hi Beauties! 

2012 has passed and now we're welcoming the new year of 2013! I have never been this excited about a new year,but first of all, Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you had an amazing new years eve and new years morning with your loved ones and friends! 

Let's recap a little of 2012 shall we? 

I started out the year a little shaky of a person I am because 2011 was a little bit more of a roller-coaster for me and when things gets too amazing and too perfect, I will tend to realize that things will eventually crumble. However 2012, was nothing like that. Though there were parts where I was a little unhappy about, but they were swept under my feet in just days. 

I have got to admit that one of my favorite memories of 2012 has got to be my singapore trips with my lovely girls! These girls put a smile on my face any day when I am down, not to even mention how they have made me study so hard and put much effort in. We had a trip to Singapore as our "free from exams" trip to take a good breath of fresh air away from home without our parents by our sides. 
I spent 4 days 3 nights with these girls and I felt like I have only spent a minute with them! Time flew by when we had so much fun, partying it up at Marina Bay Sands (not really, partying per se), 24hr Mcd in our room, late night swimming and a lot of shopping was a good way to sum up our last few months together before we departed our own separate ways. 


High school is where most memorable memories are being made with your peers. Graduating from High school &Pre Uni may sound fun but that is just not the case. Sure, you can have all the time to go out and have fun but think about it when your best friends and all your friends that have been with you for as long as you can remember, slowly leaving you. One by one leaving at the airport with tears in their eyes and sad goodbyes. 
Before my friends left, they have left me with nothing but sweet memories and graduation night was one of them. 

Night was filled with laughters, smiles, random singing, walking into walls and lots of pictures taken. 

Beach Party; 

Being by the beach has got to be one of my favorite things to do when it comes to 'chilling'. Salty breeze of air and the ocean waves makes the most calming sound known to mankind. We had this gathering at the beach just to help our poor brains from overloading it with too much information for school so we threw a beach party that lasted till about half past 6. 

Last but not least; 

Starting my own blog. 

I started this blog on the 10/11/12 due to the fact that I have no school and I needed to occupy myself with something so i chose to blog again. I love waking up and checking my page views every day and reading all your beautiful and sweet comments that were being left at the end of every post, you guys put a smile on my face! I promise to blog more this year and hopefully new things will come my way. Just a simple "Thank you for helping me" will put a major smile on my face for the entire day. Taking this opportunity to thank you all! I may not be the best blogger out there, but I certainly enjoy blogging &that's all it matters.

Although all my favorite memories can't be written down all in just one blog post, hence why i am not be able to share all my 2012 memories with you all, but i sure can tell you I had an amazing year and if i could repeat a year again, it would have to be 2012. Though, there were parts where I didn't feel the world was on my side but that passed by so easily. 

I hope you all are starting out your new year extremely well, whether its settling in a new school or moving to a new state/country or even just waiting for your intake (which is what i am doing), I hope you all had an amazing new years eve and hope that this year will bring you more laughters, smiles and more ups rather than downs! 

Appreciate little things in life and god will return the favor of giving you something big like you deserve it, take the time and patience to do something &always remember to respect your elders! When you have the opportunity to do something big/something you've never done before, take it! Chances don't come around again if you let it go the first time, take it and at least you can say "oh wells" rather than "what if". 

Have an amazing day and i hope you all enjoyed this post! Beauty/skincare/hair care post will resume on the 9th Feb 2013, If you guys have been checking in every single day like loyal readers, I will take this opportunity to thank you all, thank you for standing by me :) 

Cheers to the new years &cheer to new beginnings (: 

Love you guys!
