    What’s on July and August

    “Live for the moments you can’t put into words”

    Now shall we go straight to the main things happen on last month?



    As usual every year my company will organize a Hari Raya celebration, I spent an amazing time with my friends enjoying all the food and the time we have. However, by the time I am writing this I realized almost half of them are going to leave the company. People come and leave, but the memories and friendship we have will last. Soz, I am not crying.

     

    Another farewell lunch we had. This is us half of the Project Team – the sales girls, the designers and the QS. New staff comes and go. Now only few of us left.

    Hello Perhentian!

    One of the most beautiful island – Pulau Perhentian

    Like I have mentioned on my previous post, I plan a short getaway on the first week of August. I was at Pulau Perhentian. This wasn’t my first time at Pulau Perhentian yet I am still excited! This place has become one of my favourite place to spend for holidays. I can always see myself enjoying the breathtaking scenic view and the blue sea water at Pulau Perhentian. Though this is not my first time here, each moments I spent with friends were unforgettable.


    However, not every plan we make will turn into a sweet memories. Everything was good, the island hoping and the time we spent wondering around the beach was fascinating. There was some point during the trip I was unlucky. I will write up a post on the unfortunate things happen and the mistake I make during this trip. Stay tune for it.


    This year is the 29th South East Asia Sea Games which Malaysia was the host. I am so lucky enough to get both tickets for the Opening and Closing Ceremony. The experience I gained during those events was spectacular! Plus this was the first time I am taking the MRT to Stadium Bukit Jalil. To be honest, I don’t remember when was the last time I get on a train to get around KL.

    The Opening Ceremony

    The unforgettable closing ceremony. Celebration for Malaysia for being the champion and celebrating the 60th years of Merdeka

    Wasn’t the ceremony looks grand and beautiful? I was so proud to be one of the thousands audience who witnessed such a great ceremony. More exciting that we are the champions for the Sea Games. Congrats to all dedicated athletes, your courage and passion towards our country was beyond priceless.


    I know I spent lots of watching TV Series for the last 2 month, and that explain why I did not write any post. The shows that keep me busy are Ruler: Master of the Mask, Gilmore Girls (Season 1-2) and Game of Thrones.


    Ruler: Master of the Mask is a must watch Korean drama! I never thought I was always waiting for the episodes each week. The storyline was so good, so intense, so beautifully written and so sad I can never forget how this drama makes my heart aching and painful at the same time. Please watch if you haven’t!


    Gilmore Girls was shown years before. At that time I does not have the time to follow each seasons thoroughly, so thankfully now I can. If you still remember Jess Mariano or Milo Ventimiglia, how can you not watch him in Gilmore Girls. I hope I finish this series soon because I want (need) to watch Heroes after this.


    And finally, Game of Thrones! Seven episodes (for Season 7) are not enough for me. Each week passes really fast yet I am always counting the hours for a new episode. The last episode was beyond what I imagined. Though I have read so many plot spoiler for the final episode. And guess what? I am re-watching GOT and I am on Season 2. Right now I am waiting patiently for my Song of Ice and Fire books to arrive. Please come to me faster I cannot wait to read it and immerse myself.


    I finished reading Caraval by Stephanie Garber and Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella. Two books for the last 2 months and I only have read 6 books this year.


    Caraval was so good. Full of magic, full of mysterious scene. The story worth all the hype bookaholic was raving. I am proud and glad and I read this as soon as I purchases and I finished this book. Finding Audrey was just a light reading I read during my trip to Pulau Perhentian. Currently I am reading The Honeymoon by Tina Seksis (as recommended by http://www.nadiaizzaty.com) and Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson. Hopefully I can finish both of this before new books arrive.

    That’s all for my Monthly Highlights. Hope you have a wonderful days and please share the great things happen the last weekend on the comment box, I am happy to read.

    BEAUTY AND SKINCARE

    Healthy Pores and Healthy Skin with B.liv O2 Bubbly Bright

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    Have you heard about how oxygen bubble and rice powder can give you a purified and brightened skin? With this technology discovered by b.liv, now every girls can have that brighter and goddess like complexion. b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask will show the magic of how red soft beads can leave you with soft, smoother and glowing skin.

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    Tell me am I the only one who changes their skincare products after they have finished or at least after using and repurchase after a year. Same goes to me, I got bored of old skincare easily. It was either a good one or it doesn’t show improvement to my skin or it was just okay. The reason why most of the time I kept changing skincare products are because there are so many skincare products that I wanted to try out.

    With power advertising nowadays I am the one who will easily get attracted. One of the brands which I was eyeing is b.liv. Which thankfully I feel contented when they contacted me and I was really glad upon receiving their products and straight away I give myself a try.

    “Healthy pores, healthy skin, when you believe (b.liv), you shine with confidence”

    THE PRODUCT

    O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask (RM 99/50g)

     

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

     

    This mask combines oxygen bubble and rice powder to brighten and enliven complexion. The product claims that it will leave a “soft foam soaking up impurities while the red soft beads gently melt away to exfoliate your skin – leaving you with soft, smoother and glowing skin.”

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    From the box, it states “Dark and even skin tone” This is what excites me the most about skincare product – brightening. I hate to see my face get burnt or darken. Any product that claiming to provide this keyword is sure a must try one for me.

    The product states “Oxygenating Mask”, which I presume it works differently than a sheet or a face mask. Thus, I think by oxygenating, this is how the bubbly or foam will form. As I always keeping my skincare routine short and fast, using a mask can be time consuming to me but if I have special occasion, I want to have the extra healthy and pretty skin. Let’s see if this b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask is worthy.

    Before that, let’s first jump into what contain inside the box. It comes with a jar of the mask which look s like a cream to me with a small spatula (you need to used this for the hygienic purpose). Scooping the product straight from the jar, I can feel that the texture is not too liquidy but not too thick. When you touch and feel it with your dry fingers, you can feel the red beads. It has a soft like a cream formula which feels like a non-thick moisturizer . It doesn’t have a strong smell which is also an advantage.

     

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    You can see the mask will transform into foam

    Ingredients

    O2 Bubble (purifying) – deeply penetrate into skin to wash away pore-clogging, impurities, debris and excess sebum

    Rice powder (brightening) – it helps moisturize and brighten; leaving skin bright, soft and full of luster

    Red soft beads (exfoliating) – red cellulose beads that melt away to exfoliate dead skin surface, resulting in soft, smoother and glowing skin

    Usage

    1. apply a small amount onto face and gently massage. Bubbles will form.
    2. leave on for 5-10 minutes.
    3. massage once more for deeper cleansing.
    4. rinse with lukewarm water and proceed with remaining skin care steps.

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    Storage
    1. Ensure jar is closed properly with the inner lid.
    2. Due to the O2 bubble formulation, it is natural to expect some “cheese holes” appear in the product.
    3. It is important to use the included spatula to avoid any foreign substance added to the product which may affect its quality.
    4. Don’t use your fingers to scoop the mask out of the jar as that could cause it to bubble up.

     

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask Review and Result

    My face before applying the mask

    I applied a generous layer on my skin and leave it. The initial liquid form will transform into foam or bubble. The bubble form will wash away all the dirt and sebum. Within few seconds you can feel and hear the sound of bubble and tickling sensation! Interesting right. Which is quite mesmerizing I have never tried anything like this before.

    I can feel how it tickles my skin. I leave it for a good five minutes and after that I massage onto my skin, I can feel the beads are now doing their job. While washing away the excess, the texture doesn’t feel like soapy at all.

     

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask Review and Result

    Left pic you can see the foam. Right pic is taken after 5 minutes, the foam has dissolved

     

    FINAL IMPRESSIONS

    I liked this b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask because it has 3 steps skincare routine – which are cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing . Simple steps save my time! I loved to see my skin doesn’t dry after rinsing. I need to mention that I have dry skin. This mask can helps to cleanse and exfoliate your face. My skin feels so smooth and I also could see my skin have a brighter and clearer complexion after using it.

     

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask Review and Result

    My face after using the mask. Not much different if you compare with before, but I can feel my skin become softer

    From what it claims to give, I can feel how it purified, exfoliated and moisturize d my skin. After using it few times, I discovered my skin wasn’t dull like before. I am going to try this for a bit longer with an addition of the sheet masks to really experience if this product can give me the “Dark and even skin tone”

    I am also excited to try their masks which come in 3 different ranges – soothe me now soothing bio-cellulose mask, hydrate away moisturizing bio-cellulose mask and age eraser youth preserving bio-cellulose mask. The mask retails at RM 129 /4pcs (box).

    “Bio-cellulose is a specialized nano scale fiber structure that fits perfectly like your second skin. it serves as a high volume serum reservoir i.e. holds moisture while allowing air to transfer freely and skin can breathe better. It is 30 nanometers fiber increases extra contact surface area for crevices and wrinkles ; maximizing the absorption of effective essence”

    Soothe Me Now Soothing Bio-Cellulose Mask – soothing + repair + rejuvenating (for all skin types)

    Hydrate Away Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask – moisturizing + revitalizing + hydrating (for all skin types)

    Age Eraser Youth Preserving Bio-Cellulose Mask – youth preserving + firming + fine line reducing (for all skin types)

     

    Since my skin need hydration the most, I tried using the Hydrate Away Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask. “With Hydrate Away Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask, it is Clinical Proven Result of Nano Bio-Cellulose Mask that it will gives a moisturizing and hydrating result to your skin”

    Inside the packet, the mask comes in three layer. The middle of it is the mask. The mask itself feel like a gel and stick to your face nicely. Wait for 20 minutes and the result is, my skin feel so soft and refreshing. I am really loving the result!

    This mask will give your skin a quick moisturizer and you won’t be surprise because it is proven to provide skin hydration level increased by 15.6% after 2 hours of single use and provide skin hydration level increased by 16.1% after 4 hours of single use (*Results based on an independent clinical study, individual may vary).

    If you have a dry or a combination skin, and want to save time skipping face cleanser and face scrubs, b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask is for you. Smooth and brighter skin in just one step! Good news is, I have discount code for you who want to try this. You can use this personalized code “ATHDAYANA25” to purchase the products. b.liv products are available at Sasa and major online platform (Hermo, 11street, Lazada and GEMFIVE)

    Five Happy Things This Week

    A quick recap of Five Happy Things happen last week. Forget all the hectic day I have been having because there’s always a better way to be happy.

    Last weekend was the worst feeling I had. I am too carried away by the workload I need to do which made me feel so weak, I thought about every single thing, curse about the little time I had thus it ruins my mood. I thought that this is the worst month ever and I hate that I need to rush everything.


    That got me thinking, I had so much things I can be happy about, even for the first few days of the week. I enjoyed my life, then why would I feel so weak and restless by the end of the week. To wrap up everything in a monthly favorites post will take two more weeks and I know I will definitely forget the single happy thing that happen because we are human, we only remember the main event.

    This weekly happy things post is so helpful for someone who always feels emotional and moody like me. Like I said, I had a hectic Thursday-Friday-cums-my-weekend kinda day, but let just forget about the damn thing and focus on the positive things.

    Five Happy Things – Third Week of July

    1. Cough No More

    I had a terrible cough since the second day of Raya. You know the kind of cough that could not stop, I could feel that my throat is going to get cut and it was so damn itchy all the time. I am so tired of coughing, I tried few different cough syrup and it wasn’t working. Till then my friend suggested a cough syrup that save my life. It is the Prospan Cough Syrup – Dried Ivy Leaf Extract. This is the best.

    I stopped coughing after five days, isn’t that great? Now I can start shouting and laughing like I used to. 

    2. Skin Getting Better

    I had a terrible skin before Raya. Acne scars here and there, and the worst part is I had dried patches/few lines under my eyes – my right eye to be exact. I can’t use a concealer to cover my dark circles because it will worsen the patches. So I skipped covering my under eyes then there goes panda eyes all the way.

    Look at my acne scar on my chin, the creases under my eyes – urgh more stressful it was on Raya day.

     

    The best thing is, I went from full face makeup to the no makeup look every day. At least my skin can breathe and guess what, my scars fading day by day. My new skincare may help the process but I still think the non-makeup on my face help more.

    Now I’m going to put less makeup, at least I will skip using foundation because I prefer a clear and smooth face that I can worry less about going out with a naked face.

    3. Korean Drama All the Way

    The Master of the Mask ended – I enjoyed watching the last four episodes. It had so much impact on me. I cried all the way till the drama ended. I think so far this is the best Korean drama this year. Another drama that I watched since this last Saturday is Fight for My Way. I watched this non-stop. I still have four episodes left which will definitely finished by today or tomorrow and I don’t know which drama to watch after this since I am too picky. Suggestions anyone?

    4. Braces Monthly Visit

    I have stopped my monthly braces visit for a year. 1 year long. I felt no guilt at that moment but now I regretted it. My braces should be off this year, but for now what I can say is that I think it is going to take longer because my teeth doesn’t seem to look any improvement. But at last I resume my braces monthly visit. Better start now then never right? I passed through my entire doctor’s rambling on the day I met him and totally agree why he is mad haha. I hope I can continue to do the monthly check up and I will start monitoring my teeth each week.

    5. La Senza Semi-Annual Sale

    I cannot miss this semi-annual sale. The sales ended on the last day of June and I manage to bought some which I ordered them online at their websites. I was hesitated at first but I am glad I did. All of my items arrived last week (which took only eleven days from the day I ordered, shipping and final delivery day) and I am so happy! I got to have new bras and yeah I am still looking forward for the Annual Sale by end of this year.

    That’s it for this week – this five happy things that brought rainbows and colors to my week. I look forward for a better week next week (I still hope this Monday, all my problems will be settle one by one). But still finger cross! I can see few things coming up to bring sunshine to my day and yeah like I mentioned here, a short vacation coming soon.

    How is your last week so far?

    What made you happy last week?

    All the Things Happen Last Month (Monthly Highlights & Favourites) + Freebies *Monthly Expenses Trackers*

    Hello all…it has been a long time since I updated, so long and I really missed being here again. The last post I shared was What’s in My March 2017. I hope it is not too late to wish all of you Selamat Hari Raya!! I still can’t believe that I left for a while, I mean for three months? I never knew when I will be sharing a post again because I never really set in mind and let the time heal by itself and I just said to myself do not pressure yourself and take your time to write.


    Back to the topic, it is already July and guess what? It is my favourite month of the year because…it is my birthday month! I cannot wait for the upcoming birthday treat I planned for myself (yeah girl ain’t gonna wait for angels to come and make me happy).

    So for the past few months where have I been? Well, I am still like before nothing change actually but I can’t find the right time to write. I am always tired after work and I mostly keep myself occupied with watching dramas and somehow I like to be alone and enjoy the free time I have. But that doesn’t mean I don’t pampered myself with something exciting each month. So, let’s jump into All the Things Happen Last Month – this consists of a sum of What’s in My April, May and June 2017 all lump together because let’s be honest, nothing much happen.


     

    All the Things Happen Last Month

    Personally I think that I am in the phase where I value my time so much. I want everything to go in order as I planned and being that, I hate whenever something just popped out and ruin my time. I get so stressed out when I couldn’t finish something on time and that can make me go sour for the rest of the day.

    I also feel I am doing things without thinking it twice because I am so sick of doing lots of things for a short time. I hate that my company trying to cut cost by letting us work like shit. Each million bucks *coughshitcough* we got are for the company not the staff. I don’t feel I need to work harder like before because what’s the use right?

    Other than that, I am so thankful I am surrounded by a group of friends who are crazy like me (you know who you are, gadis gadis haha), and I can’t express enough if they weren’t there each time.

    A Court of Thorn and Roses Review

    I finish reading A Court of Thorn and Roses last month and I happy I pick this book to read because it was so damn good. If you followed my Instagram, I already wrote a short review of this book.

    I am trying to write a proper book review but to share and write a good book review on my blog I think I am still not good tough. Can any of you share on how to write a good book review?

    I also have been buying lots of books last month. This are all the books bought.

    Currently I am reading Caraval by Stephanie Garber and I have long way to go #fightingTyra

    This month too I am going to buy more books, because it’s my Birthday Treat month for MPH club members! I get to have 15% less on all books and earn 2x member points. Isn’t that exciting? I am so cannot wait for it! And hopefully I still can redeem my points so that mean I can buy more books.

    Last month was the finale season for two of my favourite shows, Prison Break and Pretty Little Liars. First let’s talk about Prison Break. This last season was so so nerve wrecking. I am so happy I get to see Wentworth Miller on screen again gah I was his avid fans since the season premiere okay. After so much troubles, so many speculation on the series, I am truly happy they end it perfectly beautiful.

    Now, let’s move with Pretty Little Liars. I feel like had too many headache since the show started.  This show actually end guys. Can’t you believe it? After 7 f*cking seasons. 7 f*cking years of waiting. Though I could not wait or what I mean was I am getting too tired to follow each episode but at last…it ended. I feel like those who started to watch since the beginning can take a deep breath now.

    Next show I was watching is Produce 101 Season 2. It’s a Korean reality show where they audition and pick 11 best of the best candidates to form a boy group call as Wanna One. I am so happy my favourites – Daniel, Ji Hoon, Guan Lin, Dae Hwi made it to top 11 but I am so sad Samuel and Jonghyun didn’t. Can’t wait for their debut!

    Which one is your favourite Wanna One member?

    Other shows I have watched are Hero Seorang Cinderella and Andainya Takdir. Malay dramas sometimes can be a bit like urgh so boring and menyampah but you still watch till the end right? Yeah that mix feelings I felt for HSC. The reason I watched because ada Fazura je. I never doubted her acting but this one with Fattah is just meh. The chemistry was not there.

    Then there comes Andainya Takdir. I think the story is not the so typical malay drama you have watched. Shukri Yahya acting is bravo guys. I just wish he can win more award than the ‘kayu actor’ *youknowwhoright*

    Beauty Products I Love

    There’s a lot of beauty stuff slash makeup stuff I bought. To list everything might take too long, so here is the list of what I have been loving so far:-

    Skincare:-

    Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

    Aloe Vera Gel

    I added this two in my skincare regime now. Both products provides moisture to my face especially on Raya day because I think the weather on that days were so hot kan. There are other products I have tried but it was just okay for me. For future I think I want to try out Laneige line and I have been eyeing the starter kit one on Hermo before I purchase the whole set. Anyone can give me little review on Laneige skincare line?

    Next is, the makeup stuff I have been loving lately, which are:-

    Too Face Born This Way Foundation

    Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation

    Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Powder

    Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

    Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Palette

    TheBalm Mary Lou Manizer

    Benefit Hoola Bronzer

     

    I can’t wait for the short trip I have planned for the upcoming week. I really hope my work won’t ruin everything. I think I should worry about work a lil bit less and I really hope better opportunities will come. Wish me luck okay. To think back what I have sacrificed for the last 2 years makes me wanna cry so hard.

    What makes me excited again this month is….drum rolls…. GAME OF THRONES! 16th July please come faster baby……

    What are you looking forward this month?

    Wait! Since this month is my favourite month, I am going to share my own ‘Monthly Expenses Tracker’ just for you. This is an editable copy (in excel btw) for your easy usage. Hope this is useful for you!
