Trying to lose weight? Yeah, me too. I've gain quite a bit of weight since the new year and CNY, it's not very obvious but there are some of my favourite dresses and pants that I can't dress freely anymore. Plus, doing my masters/studying and working at the same time is really taking a toll on my health cause it's harder for me to find time to exercise. When I was purely just working, I'm out a lot which forced me to walk and move a lot. These days, working from home and studying often only requires me to sit and stare at my laptop for long hours and sometimes, all night.
I also tend to snack a lot during my stress seasons, when I have assignment, thesis and work dues. Truly, not the best feeling on earth but I usually allow myself to do it because I need to fuel my brain in order to work on my assignments or thesis particularly. All these contributes to the factor of slowing down my metabolism rate, which obviously causes weight gain. This is where I'm trying out the NANO Reserva Red Wine, 1st non-alcoholic red wine to help loose some weight and hopefully, help me feel less lethargic during the day.
Before I got a collaboration with this brand, I have been researching about collagen powder in the market because I was really interested to finally dive into this range of beauty care. Basically, leveling up my beauty care because I'm 26 this year and really, it's the best time to start with the whole collagen craze for anti-aging. Additionally, I've found that collagen is not only good for your skin, it's also great for the hair. As you all know, I'm engaged and I'm currently looking to grow out my natural hair for my wedding next year, well, if possible, I'm trying to speed my hair growth process.
To have better hair growth, you'll need to have a healthy scalp and I definitely don't have the healthiest scalp as it's always very dry. Often, it flakes that makes it look super ugly dandruff-like flakes, in huge pieces. I believe it could also be due to the fact that I've over-worked my scalp and hair for the past two years. I've been going on a crazy hair bleaching and colouring season where I change my hair styles and colours like there's no tomorrow. Thus, truly damaging them to a pretty horrendous state. Thus, It very interesting that NANO Hyaluron and Collagen Powder actually helps with my dry scalp issue. It's tried and tested, 100% my honest opinion, I do believe it has something to do with this supplementary consumption that stops my flaking dry scalp.
There's really not much review to be found about this product. The NANO Hyaluron and Collagen Powder is not one of those super highly talked about collagen powder but for some weird reason, I have the peace to try it out. After trying out for 1.5 months, stopped for a few weeks, and go back on it again, I realise it makes a huge difference in certain areas and at the same time didn't too at other parts that I had some kind of expectations on it.

I started of makeup with no actual brushes, it’s always just my hands and fingers for application. Sometimes, when I’m travelling, I don’t usually carry a lot of brushes, most of the time, I only bring along a blush brush. Additionally, this kinda applies to my everyday life, when I’m in a rush, I just do this or maybe even less, I’ll probably skip eyeliner if I’m lazy.
Hope you enjoy a little kid scene in the beginning too! Like and Subscribe for more videos! :D

This is a very late post but I still want to officially wish my mom a Happy Mother's Day on my blog! Well, I'm currently living under the same roof as her, so I did wished her on the actual day. It's just that I brought her out to Ritz Carlton for a high tea session with Buro 24/7 Malaysia and SK-II. I was thankful for the event because my mom definitely deserved some time off her grandma duty (she and my dad are still doing such an amazing job taking care of my sister's little girl) and be treated to a fancy mother-daughter bonding session.
The event also gave my mom and I each an exclusive Spring Butterfly Limited Edition Facial Treatment Essence, which I believe by now my mom has already started using it, and a couple of Buro 24/7 merchandises.
If you ask me, I definitely see a lot of her in me. She has always brought me up to be a lady but at the same time, teaching me how to be a lady with an independent character. I've seen her changed the lights, fixed some minor plumbing issues, check the car engine oil, and so much more. Besides that, she cooks, she bakes, she sews and she cleans. Geez Mom, how can I keep up with you?
In the event, one question was asked from the Q&A card activity session, "What was your favourite memory with your mother?" I told my mom it was us, baking her famous marble butter cake. It's funny how I've never actually told her that I really do enjoyed the times where she'll allow me watch the cake mixer combine the butter and sugar, get me to help with the flour sifting although it's now a chore for me to do whenever I bake a cake, let me scoop in the milk while she managed the flour, allowing me to lick the spoon when we are done, and finally stopping me from eating the cake when it's hot.
Little activity like this actually impacted my life and made me to who I am today. Yes, now I bake, quite a bit and I love it. Additionally, I cook and clean too because my mom taught me to do so. I picked up the independent woman character because I grew up watching my mom being one. Truly, I treasure all these wonderful characters I picked up from my mom.
I Love You Mommy! Thanks for being so supportive in my life and the choices I make!
