It’s December already! Does anyone else feel like this year just went by too quick?
All you beautiful people following me on Instagram will already know I have been eating and shopping my heart out in Japan all of November so I have some cutesy awesome favorites to share with you all. Also if you don’t follow me on Instagram, you should because I post lots of pictures of good food, aesthetically shot makeup up(or at least I think so) and all of my shopping adventures especially shopping bags made to pose on gunpoint. 😀
At this point in life if you ask me whats the one makeup product you use to make yourself look less like a zombie and more like a human woman I would rapidly answer lipstick. I just feel it can instantly lend some life without the fuss of eye makeup because who wants to keep rubbing them off every night and then get more wrinkles in the process. #Aintnobodygettingyoungerhere
My absolute favorite lipstick this month has been Mehr by MAC which is a pink nude matte shade that I picked up from MAC during my short holiday in Dubai few months back. It is a super gorgeous shade and I have been wearing it like every single day.
Dry skin has been a battle I have been fighting for a while now. I used to have normal/combination skin all through my growing years and then I moved to Japan. Few winters later I was given an un-welcomed gift of dry skin so I have been struggling to find the right skin care products to use. One such discovery was my Chanel Hydra Beauty Nutrition (Review HERE). However I was still testing out a lot of different brands of face wash until I accidentally stumbled upon Burt’s Bees. All I keep thinking about it is why I didn’t know of it sooner. In my opinion it is strictly for people with dry skin because of just how hydrating it is. Finding this product has been a huge relief for me since being under 10 degrees after a whole year needs some extra getting used to.
After graduation I have had the chance to get back to reading (things that do not involve notes and textbooks). I have a huge list to catch up and I have been making slow yet steady progress. I am waiting for an interesting amazon book haul to arrive already because I can’t wait to share it with you guys. Lately, I see myself getting back to reading non-fiction books and I have been thoroughly enjoying it. I am huge sucker for anything and everything that remotely sounds like “intelligence”.
I caught up on this book ‘How Starbucks Saved My Life.” with a cup of Starbuck’s hot mocha because I am awesome like that! 😀 Honestly I wouldn’t say this book is going to get your attention from the word go to the last sentence however if you are anything like me and are interested in reading about imperfect people and imperfect situations bringing in heartwarming moments and lessons that define a life well lived, I would recommend checking this one out. If you did not understand a word of what I just wrote, don’t read it. 😛
When I moved out of Japan last year I had given off all my winter wear except a few favorites so I had to pick some essentials over the month so I did not freeze and die. One of them was this rabbit slippers I got from Forever 21. How cute is that!! Apart from being heart breakingly cute it really keeps my feet warm. It’s a win-win situation. 🙂
I have been bingeing on Mexican food because I had missed it so much. I know going crazy for Mexican food in Japan is pretty odd but there no place to get any back in Sri Lanka so I made use of the opportunity.
Also it is the final week for all you people at school, so if you need some moral support here’s a post I made a while back about how I used junk food as a stress-buster during exam week back in Uni. 😉
Is any of the above a favorite of yours? What has been your favorite lately? Let me know in a comment below.
Keep Smiling lovelies! Xx
