We Are Young Adults, We Drink Water When We Gather & Why You Totally Should Too! [Spritzer Hot & Warm Mini Dispenser Giveaway!]

Thank God for unimates! They are the ones that knows and accepts you for all your crap. Watching each other grow for that short 3-4 years was definitely an interesting journey for me. My life wouldn't be the same without the friends I had in my Foundation and Degree years, they just know how to brighten up a gloomy day!

I couldn't believe that it's been 7 years since we knew each other! It's crazy how much "those were the days..." we now use everytime we catch up. 

"Remember, we used to karaoke every week after class?"
"I still remember we used to FIFA the whole night till morning and order the best burger nearby when we were hungry."
"We once could stay up 24-h just to finish our assignments and still can go to class the next day. Ohmygosh, those were the days when we had the energy."

Truly, it's so different now. As we grew older, of course, we are much wiser now (hopefully), we realised that we are really not that young anymore. Being in our mid-20s, sleep deprivation is a sin now and long gone the days where we could go living out unhealthy lifestyles. This includes levelling up our water intake by choosing to drink more water over any other 'party' or 'gathering' drinks especially those sweet, fizzy ones. 

"Water makes up about two thirds of who we are and influences 100% of the processes in our body", says hydration expert Doug Casa, PhD. Thus, drinking enough water should naturally make us feel better. Here are a few reasons why you should choose to hydrate yourself with water: 

#1 It helps with losing weight
When you drink water before a meal, it makes you feel full and possibly boost metabolism too. Plus, it's also common for us to mistake thirst for hunger. Thus, the next time when you feel fatigued or sluggish, some H2O might just help to perk you up. 

#2 Good for your digestion
Put on your glasses as I'm going to be a little scientific here - in the large intestine, water binds with fibre to increase the bulk of the stools, reduce transit time and make elimination easier. When you don't drink enough water, the colon pulls water from stools, increasing your risk of constipation. #FACT

#3 May protect you from some types of cancer
It's been studied that the greater the fluid intake (results more significant with water), the lower the chances of getting bladder cancer because it's possible that urinating more frequently prevents the buildup of bladder carcinogens. Also, keeping yourself hydrated may also reduce the risk of colon cancer and breast cancer. 

#4 It improves mood and alertness
Oh yes, it refreshes us and improves our state of mind! Feeling tired is one of the first signs of dehydration, thus filling up on H2O could zap the sleepiness away!

#5 Helps you look good!
Of course, being a beauty blogger, how can I not say this. Water helps to improve skin complexion. We've read so much about this. Water moisturises your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. It even helps to reduce wrinkles, it's the best anti-ageing treatment around!

There are so many more reasons why you should drink more water, but first read on further to find out how you can win yourself your very own Spritzer Hot and Warm Mini Dispenser

5 Reasons Why I Want To Stop Shaving My Legs & Underarms

Here's the thing, being a lady takes a lot of effort. Especially in this modern era, we are expected to be so much more than just being good at housework. Long gone the days when our priority is to stay home and learn up all the amazing cooking, cleaning and sewing skills in hoping we can be a good wife to some manly breadwinner some day.

It's a amazing how Gender Equality empowers women, it gives us more freedom and opportunities to be something more. However, it comes with a cost. The repercussion of this movement is expectations for women to be stronger, bolder, and more emotionally stable. At the same time, we should still be able to carry out womanly duties and characters, which includes having a nurturing spirit, compassion, kind and gentle. Additionally, we can't look like a hobo too. We are expected to look at the very least, presentable. Thanks to media (yes, I blame media) and society, the perception of "presentable" is not even close to just looking clean, neat, proper attire, and smelling good. In the present-day, looking presentable is a whole different ball game altogether and it's not even funny.

Buka Puasa Bersama Cyberview Resort & Spa!

One of the perks of being in Malaysia is no doubt, the food variety. It gets better during Ramadan season with bazaars and buffets available throughout the nation. 

For Muslims, Ramadan is believed to be the holiest month of the year. It's the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. For an entire month, observant Muslims do not eat or drink during daylight hours as an act of worship. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam along with shahadah (declaration of faith), salat (five daily prayers), zakat (almsgiving), and hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca). 

As a Malaysian, I personally do enjoy Buka Puasa sessions with my Muslim friends because the food is always good! This time I had the opportunity to break Fast with my family at Cyberview Resort & Spa in Cyberjaya. The best part is, they reminded me of delicious home-cooked food that's prepared according to the traditional recipes.

Win A Set Of Pierre Cardin Sport Range - Energized II [Contest]

Being a young adult in this era is not easy. Especially when all our peers are getting into the whole fitness and gym and eating clean programme, it just makes you wonder "What Am I Doing?" while lying on your bed munching on the best tasting unhealthy snack ever. 

I used to play sports when I was in high school and in uni but things change when you start working. A lot of times this is when working OUT is not much of a priority anymore. No doubt, we all want to exercise but we use time as our excuse. 

I've only gotten back into the whole exercise thing about 8 months back after being peer-pressured into joining my first trail run. And it's a 12km trail NIGHT run with no prior training. Champion of the world. 

After that, I started joining more runs and I'm glad to have a few good friends onboard with me on this. It's been good so far but will most probably take a step back on running due to my studies, though, I've just signed up for gym in my Uni. So, fitness will still be something I want to keep up with since I've been reminded on how much I love the adrenaline after a good workout session.  

I'm not one to have a wide selection of sports wear. It's pretty much the same thing every single time I play badminton with my friends or runs. Worst, in high school, I used to play volleyball with my regular bra! Darn, I don't even know how did I managed that.

Thus, I'm always thankful when I have the opportunity to own a new set of sports attire! This time, I'm blessed to be one of the first few to try Pierre Cardin's New Sport Range, Energized II.
