2 Travelling Abroad: 10 Tips on Packing

I know! I am not bragging here , but i am just sharing tips. At this moment,  I am as anxious as the students for this exam to be over , holiday to be started. Well, this is my first time travelling oversea with my hubby. We are going to Philipines! My good friend, Sherry had emailed me the itinerary for our travel package which we will be abroad for 5 days and 4 nights. Ouh! I can't wait for this. Soon after i read that email, i googled on every places that we are going to go and they make my heart races! Before going to sleep, I was thinking of what i am going wear, head to toe,  which i have my cousins to make me a crochet hat for a horse riding to Taal volcano. I know, it will be an amazing trips ever. Okay, i might google on principles of what to pack to Philipines too. That's 

1. Comfort must comes first.  Pack cloths with cotton fabrics that is wrinkled free and absorb sweat like sponge. No, it is not necessary did that.

2. Pick cloths with basic colors. Rationale is, it will be easy for me to mix and match. But, it is okay to pack bright colors like red or orange if you are heading to the beach or it is summer time. It is always summer in Philipine. 

3. Always pack at least a pareo or sarongs to cover up if you are going for swimming.

4. Perfect daytime uniform, shorts, skirts and tops! Pack extra tops to layer on other tops or can be wore on its own.

5. Dresses for a  night out either for dinner, or just chilling at pubs. Can be short or long. 

6. A cardigan. It is the easiest way to upgrade your look. You may use it to cover up at night outs, cozying in the plane, or if you dare enough, wear it alone with a pants for dinner out.

7. You may leave your expensive  accesories at home. Buy it there to get local treasures. If you in an islands, you might want to buy coral necklace or bangles to put on during the vacation.

8. Bring only at least two pairs of shoes. One for a casual sandals, which you will wear during the day. You want a comfy one to walk on  around. The other one is dressy one to wore at night out.

9. Roll your clothes to be pack in the luggage. You will be thanking for this as it 'll save more space to the luggage.

10. Take a hat. Vacationing is one excuse to wear a wide brim hat as you would not looked ridiculous.  I already bought one for myself. It is not wide brimmed as i was imagining that i would get one like that, but it is just not possible with crochet as the brim will fall down to my nose.

There you go. You might have other ideas on what to pack for vacation. It all depends on where we are going abroad. What i wear on the vacation and my make ups, i will upload soon after my vacation is over. Oh la la la.....let's do the packing!

0 Soft and Smoother Lips Every Morning

Ever waking up with dry chappy lips? Loved one kisses us in the morning sayimg 'i love you, babe' but he gots dry lips, add on sharpy , cracky torn lip skin to kiss on. Gah! This is because our body tends to lose more water at night. That's why if we drink too much before going to sleep we going to end up finding ourselves in and out to the toilet in the middle of the night. To avoid this, people tends to reduce consumption of water at night. But the downhill to this is , dry lips in the morning. Tricky situation. One way to overcome this dilemma of dry lips is by applying Vaseline jelly on the lips before i doze off.
Vaseline petroleum jelly. It is very cheap, price between MYR 10
to MYR 20. It is a multi purpose cream too. 
The next morning , before i brush my teeth, i will brush off my lips gently with the toothbrush. Tadaaa...soft lips revealed. Woah, it was not comfortable when i first tried this method in, as it feels like i am having one too thick of lipstick on my lips all night. I am actually feels slightly creamier but will managed to sleep anyway with it. Vaseline never fails. And it works just as better as other lip balm.

Soft and smooth lips makes it easier to be applied on any lip stain. For very rich and creamier lip stain will give slightly  better looking on this lips as it provides smoother canvas.  If you haven't try this, go get a grab on this multi purpose jelly and put it on!

2 Make Ups Quintessential

I used to hear "Beauty is Pain" since i was 16 year old when i first get my hair straightened, back in 2002. It is because back at that time, saloon only have the two ways system to straightened your hair which takes forever to finished. Imagine, i had been sitted in front of the mirror at 8 in the morning, i had to take to lunch with my hair  heavy with chemicals. The odor was so sharp that it hindered my appetites. Well, the results was all worth while by the way. It always is because who doesn't like soft, touchy hair?

Well, who says we need a whole big bag to have a complete set of make ups to look good?  If you are heading to work, classes or just an outing, we only need a small amount of make ups that accentuates our natural beauty at the right place. We do not want to be seen as trying too hard, or taken less serious off especially by our bosses, lecturers, our nerdy study group members, or maybe colleagues. But, in this post, i will only emphasizes on the quintessential in our daily basis make ups. We do not have to break the bank to look beautiful, we only need the right and suitable products for  our skin conditions. As for me, I only buy make up products that can be bought from local drugstore like Watson's, Guardian, Red City.....

Basics are , a makeup bag, moisturizer, sunscreen,  foundation, eyebrow liner, eye shadow of neutral and dark colors, mascara, eye liner, eyelash curler, lipstick, lip gloss and few brushes of different types and sizes. My version is...
The right bag that is easy to bring to anywhere
Neutral eye shadow color. This is by Za Dramatic Color in Gold. It is qute glittery which makes the eyes looked fairy but also can last up until 8 hours wear.

My favorites of all time, Maybelline Eyestudio Liquid Eyeliner

Currently I am using mascara from Za , Wide Eye Mascara in violet that gives the effect of long lashes. It has the comb-type brush. Well, once i run out of this tube, i always run for others since
mascaras is always developing. Or it might not.
An eyelash curler. I bought it from Cindy Beauty Corner that
is available in most supermarket in Malaysia. I have been using this curler for 7  years and
i only replace the rubber in one of the jaw.

I just switched to BB cream. I used to use the True White 2  way Cake by Za.  I just  kinda obsessed with BB cream nowadays.

Brow liner by In2It. I really loved this. The brush is very long lasting and
as well as the cakes. It comes in 2 shades, light and dark brown
which i think complimented the dark hair color and skin tone of Asian

My current favorite, lipstik by Za Plumper Lips in Pearly Pink .
I used a lot from Za right? That's because the quality of the products yet affordable.
Za products also are long lasting, gives you the color that
really satisfies.

To blend beautiful make ups effectively i am gonna need set of good brushes. Mine is  from Elianto.  From left, 3 shadows brushes, the foundation brush, and the blush brushes. I love the brushes from Elianto
because not only it is very affordable but also,
long lasting and soft to the skin. There are few empty pockets still that i will fill up soon. They are
on my wishlist..

These are the basic tools and  that you need in your make up bag.  Of course when you are someone who likes to look good with make ups and to get creatives, you gonna need more eye shadows color, fake eyelashes ( which i must have at least two pairs in my make ups drawer), pencil eyeliner, the mascara that gives different effects, and more lipstik color, lip gloss and more brushes. I forgot to mention the sunscreen. Mine is Za True White Sunscreen SPF26 A++. It is a must apply cream before the rituals of painting the face down started.

There you are, posts on how to put make ups on various style for various events will be coming up soon.
