    A Few Major Things I Have Learnt Since I Started My Clothing Line..

    Three years ago, I have dived into the world of business immediately after graduation –unprepared and naive. I was not certain what i wanted to do precisely but i was very much certain i did not want to work with people. I knew i did not want to be confined in a cubicle doing things i despise. Fortunately for me, my mom has always been incredibly supportive and suggested that i should get into fashion. Never once would i have thought of that. Looking back, ever since primary school, i did enjoy sketching dresses and cute tops. My drawings are unequivocally hideous but i reckon, this is my passion and…

    My all-time favourite skincare routine! (Combination skin)

    To be honest, there was a time in my life where I thought taking care of my skin was something I need not do. In my defence, I never had any trouble with it. I had no acne problems and with that, I never really thought about my skin in its entirety. It was never an issue to me.  Which, was truly a blessing until I had to stay in Melbourne and ended up with this dry patchy skin for almost a year. I could not even smile without hurting my face; it felt as though there was a bad drought going on and I could almost hear my skin…

    Ginger Baths Make Me Sweat!!

    Have you ever had such a taxing day that you find yourself yearning for a good me-time in the bathtub to unwind? Imagine lighting up some scented candles in the bathroom, putting on some good oldies and let time flies while you sit in the tub contemplating about life in its entirety. Ah, the little things in life. It can be fortifying to spend a few good minutes away from everyone and everything including your smartphones. I reckon, it is essential to allot yourself some time just for yourself. How many hours could you go through a day without holding your phone? I wonder. It has become an addiction that…

    My First Waxing Experience @ Bubble Gum Wax

    WARNING : (MAY CONTAIN THE WORD VAGINA, BUTT, LABIA A LOT) I HAVE WARNED YOU. I must say, waxing can be downright excruciating especially when it comes to Brazilian or Bikini waxing. I have done it innumerable times and yet, every time I find myself spread on that table like a bloody turkey, a little part of me dies inside. I could still bring back every inch of that time I lied on that table for the first time – utterly exposed and mortified. It was one of those moments where you start to question about your life decision and subsequently be full of contrition. Benefits of waxing Because waxing…

    How to empty your closet in the most ethical way?

    Once a day, I would find myself standing before my closet in deep frustration – not knowing what to wear despite the amount of clothing I possess. Sure, there a million other reasons to be frustrated about, like water scarcity in Africa but who knew not knowing what to wear could become a nuisance? And so I had finally managed to give my closet a good round of spring cleaning. Sure, I had thought of donation but living in Malaysia, I do not think donating tank tops and mini dresses is a brilliant idea… As i try to get rid of my unwanted clothes, i realised how i have not…

    The darkest moment of my life, so far.

    Since my last post, just when I thought things could not get any worse, my dad too was admitted to the hospital. A day before, he was complaining of a headache and the next day, he woke up with a high fever. I was with mom at the hospital the entire time and when I had heard the news, I felt my heart dropped to my stomach and raised back up again. At that point, it had been three days since she was admitted. Mom was diagnosed with pneumonia influenza – possibly, one of the worst complications you could get from influenza. I had done an extensive amount of research…

    My Favourite Photo Editing Apps!

    One of the most frequent questions i get recently is, “What apps do you use to edit your photos?” and so i thought, i should share with you some of the apps that i love! Please note that i am not a professional when it comes to editing which is more than conspicuous and i have so much to learn still. For the first few years, I’d say that my feed was just like many other feeds that you see everywhere. There was nothing really prominent about it. I had gone for the ‘dark’ ‘high contrast’ look.  I’d say that i had gone for the natural kind of look. There…

    An unexpected encounter on V-day.

    Like any other day, Valentine’s day is just another day for Farrace and I. Sure, for the first few years, we would be celebrating it at a high-end restaurant and he would be surprising me with some roses and it was good while it lasted. Along the years, i have come to realise that Valentine’s day is just like any other day for us. And surely, it does not have to be extravagant? I remember going to Troika for fine dining and i did not even enjoy every bit of it except for the sensational view of the Twins. We ended up going to mamak afterward because we were still…
