WEDDING 101: Bride Does Her Own Make-up

Leave the make-up part to the experts. Or, just get on with it. I got on with it and never regretted doing my make-up on my wedding day. The truth was, the make-up was not my major concern on my wedding day. The skin was. I’ve been battling with adult acne and I was focused on a sustainable regimen that would not cause my skin to breakout during my wedding day. I always believe great skin needs no make-up so if I have great skin on my wedding day I would not have to worry. Continue reading “WEDDING 101: Bride Does Her Own Make-up”

Luxury Holiday Gift Guide 2016

Christmas is just around the corner! With only 14 days to go, I have almost ticked off everything in my annual Christmas gift list.

Work at Home Woes: How to Kill Productivity Killers

Working from home has numerous advantages, and disadvantages. While I can go on and on enumerating the many good things about working from home (no daily commutes!), I can also list several disadvantages. But, being the positivist that I am when it comes to work, I try to turn these disadvantages into opportunities. One of these disadvantages are the greater tendency to procrastinate and to just laze around and do nothing, effectively becoming unproductive. Also, the technical part of working from home also becomes a disadvantage at times because you do not have a tech guy (who’s an expert on computers and technical stuff) to call and fix a problem immediately. Another disadvantage also stems from our often poor Internet connection, busting our productivity bubbles in a snap. In this post, I’m going to share with you my top three productivity killers and how I deal with them.

July 2016 #OOTDS

Let’s a take a break from the travel posts (but I would still blog some more travel-related posts next week because I have some backlog stories to share), and talk about outfits! Haha.. I was (and still am) seriously considering converting this blog into a travel blog because travel-related posts seem to be the more popular posts. But I just can’t resist the temptation of posting outfit photos because outfit photos were the core and the backbone of this blog since its creation. I will resolve to publish only one #ootd post per month because, the truth is, I also don’t go out often. Continue reading “July 2016 #OOTDS”
