My Hong Kong #Shopping Goodies!

I haven’t been updating lately for one reason – that is because I was on a 5 day trip with my family in Hong Kong. I can’t even remember when was the last time I visited the place, it felt like it’s been forever since I last did. I actually planned to take lots of photos for the trip but I wasn’t able to do so because the place is always so crowded. I can’t even see one spot in Hong Kong where I can take a photo of the place without much people walking here and there. Everyone is so like always living on a fast pace life. It’s very different with Singapore – people in Singapore are even quite friendly, while people in Hong Kong.. well, let’s just say they are not so friendly and most of them get easily mad, plus they are not the best in speaking and understanding English, which is very understandable – after all, it’s not their main language.

If there is one thing I love about the recent trip I had in Hong Kong is the fact that I was able to spend some time with my family which I rarely do because of our work schedules. Also, because of the things I was able to buy during the trip. I totally enjoyed shopping in Hong Kong, seeing products that are not available in my country always amuses me – especially those that are related to beauty products. So here are the things I bought during the trip!

Get Glowing Skin – Without a Photo Filter!

Let’s get real here, ladies. Everyone takes a photo and we want to look good in each of those photos. If you are an instagram user, you could have even develop a habit on applying photo filter, FIRST, before even uploading the photo – for the very reason that it instantly fixes your skin condition most of the times and makes you awesomely beautiful. Some would even use a Camera 360 app to enhance the photo itself before uploading it just to have whiter, fairer good looking skin. The bottom line? No matter how much you deny it, a part of you will always want to look good. You would want to present yourself better in public for whatever reason may it be – whether for the sake of your own confidence, for publicity, or just to get attention.. there will always be a part of each of us who wants to look their best!

If you have been following my blog all these years, you would know that my term of beauty blogging is not about using makeup to enhance your features. It has always been about skin care, about having that natural beauty within, skin maintenance that brings out the beauty within you with or without any makeup. I do believe makeup does wonders but I just know that sometimes, having no makeup yet to feel good in our own skin is the most awesome thing every girl would ever dream for. Since I was 13, I have focused on skin care like no one else until today. I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve figured the secret out!

Go Glow!

Used to be just plain soap, and water to cleanse the face. Simple as that, women before, did not need to spend extra money to spend on facials, pricking, exfoliating, toning, rejuvenating and more. Yet, they had flawless skin. No cover ups, no makeup, just natural beautiful skin.

What happened? In an era of heavy makeup, pollution, sleepless nights, stress, social drinking… having a beautiful skin nowadays is a luxury. Spending for it has become a necessity. Is it really worth it? For some, no, for others, yes! Having a beautiful skin is synonymous to having a higher level of self confidence. A higher level of self confidence means a better chance at making it good in this life.

Makeup Changed My Life

It can be difficult sometimes to separate out looks and personality. In today’s image conscious society, anyone who does not fit the generic mould can end up feeling ostracised – that is where makeup comes in.

There is more to makeup than just making us look pretty; there are added benefits to people that maybe do not look exactly like everyone else, those that suffer from facial disfigurement. One in 150 people has some sort of visual problem with their face; it is a fairly common problem, but the subject is becoming more and more taboo.

Makeup can have a positive impact on how accepted these people are into society. They no longer stand out, and are treated as “normal” by the general public. This lack of attention whilst outside is generally all that they want.

What is Plastic Surgery?

Although the concept of plastic surgery isn’t new, only since its introduction into the beauty and cosmetics industry that it has become a multi-billion pound industry and renowned all over the world. Historically, it was used primarily for reconstructive surgery or the aesthetic treatment of burns. As knowledge and technology improved in the 20th century, so did the availability and potential of plastic surgery. Returning soldiers from the first and second World Wars benefited, so did people with natural disfigurations and serious burn scars.
