I'm Sorry But First Impression Still Matters And Why You Should Care On How You Look Outwardly...


I'm not here to burst bubbles but we all know the truth is that human do still care about first impressions. Even after all that Meghan Trainer body image song, it still boils down to how we portray ourselves to others in a glance because hey, ain't everyone got time to sit down and have a deep conversation to get to know you better. 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about size here. I'm talking about how well you clean up, your posture, and the way to talk. I remember my mom always tell me to iron my clothes before I wear them out, to stand up straight, to close my legs when I stand, and to not laugh like a crazy woman with my mouth wide open... ermm.. I'm still working on that last one. I didn't really get it when I was younger, I always thought it was annoying and I should be able to do what I like and people should just like me for who I am. 

It's true, people should like you for who you are! But being a woman in the real world is a task, we've got to look confident while exuding poise, and these can happen to all girls if most of us believe we can by starting with spending the extra effort to take care on how you look physically. By knowing that you look good, you'll feel great! 

A little mascara makes you look a whole lot more awake, a little blusher oozes a healthy flush, the right red lipstick completes your entire look, and a little lotion every day after shower will keep your skin moisturised and soft. All these goes hand-in-hand with your dressing too!

GOOD VIBRATIONS - Pobling Mini Ion Applicator [Review]


Sometimes, hands are not enough, we need vibrations... Oh... what a weird way to start a blogpost. LOLS! Keep your thoughts clean people! Though, I kid you not. When it comes to beauty, we'll always want more and thanks to the advancement of technology, we no longer just relying on skincare products, beauty gadgets are gaining popularity among beauty junkies. Anything that claims to be of help to enhance our skin condition, we'll try.

The science behind vibration...

It might sound zany but apparently there are some serious science behind the idea of vibrations being good for the skin. In the 1960s, Russians discovered that vibration training cause muscles to contract 30 to 50 times per second. Contraction helps to increase blood circulation, transporting oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, which helps with anti-ageing as it's a workout that can boost the production of human growth hormone. In layman's term, it has the potential to rejuvenate our skin, just like how we feel after a good workout session, we feel supercharged! It's the same concept!

It's also found that vibration can contribute to long term anti-ageing by preparing the skin to absorb topically applied lotions and potions because anything that warms up the skin and gets the blood closer to the surface will enable molecules in serums and moisturisers to penetrate more effectively. Interesting, isn't it?!

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
