There's a stubborn ass pimple on my left cheek that has been there for weeks.
It started out as a cystic pimple (the worst kinds) and instead of squeezing the heck out of it, I decided to just leave it and let it go away on its own. I moisturized, toned and used anti acne face washes.
But it wouldn't go away.
So I decided I couldn't take it anymore and dug a hole and squeezed it out.
It left an ugly red mark but it's ok.
It's the beginning of recovery I told myself.
But after a week of intense bio oil application, it was still red and slightly bumpy.
And then I realized I wasn't thorough with my squeezing. And there was still a "head" left.
I repeated my squeezing process and yesterday I finally found the white seed -_-
I hate you pimples.
Moral of the story is. After stalking #dayrebeauty and wanting to hop on the bandwagon of proper skincare, I purchased toner, face wash, moisturizer etc.
And I had multiple pimples on my face after.
The best thing for everyone else isn't the best thing for you.
I've gone back to my bochap ritual of washing my face with body soap and using bio oil as a moisturizer and my face has gone back to normal.
You don't always have to go with the flow to fit in. Sometimes what's best for you is bad for everyone else.
My skin is telling me to just……..be myself 😂
The wedding dress I custom made from Taobao arrived!
It's super simple and made from mainly satin (锻) instead of lace.
I previously went through a small mini breakdown regarding banquet planning and decided I wanted to keep everything simple.
So I went ahead and got a super simple 2 piece made.
Now that it's here….and hearing my mum ask why it's so simple…….
I'm having second thoughts. It's so simple my husband didn't even turn his head to look at me when I tried it on. 😒
Sometimes your backside is super itchy and you cannot decide on anything.
Like me now. With everything regarding the wedding.
But it's ok, everything will work out in the end.
It's good to spend time on yourself and noone else.
Hehe I apologise for this picture but hahaha. I love it.
I spent 2-3 hours lying down doing nothing last Thursday and I really enjoyed it!
I used to hate going for beauty appointments cos I get super restless doing nothing, but I am surprised by how much I actually enjoyed spending time on myself doing nothing!
Doing nothing isn't actually nothing and can be pretty great.
I like it!
Everytime I look at this bean, I'm reminded of how fast time flies!
And surprisingly, I missed him so so much when I was in BKK 😂 I bugged EVERYONE to send me photos but nobody was free enough 😂
He has 7 teeth now!
What happened to my toothless baby? I don't know 🙁
We're heading over to Tokyo with my family next month so there's been a lot of planning to do.
Not planning for the trip, but planning for business.
Sometimes, I look back on my old life and I kind of see why people would stay in their jobs and not take risks.
When you run your own small business, everything is up to you. And you literally cannot stop moving.
It's not a bad thing because your days are kept busy. And I mean it when I say I haven't woken up dreading a work day.
But sometimes it's nice to switch off and not bother, whenever you want to.
Last time, as an employee, you get off work and switch off.
When you're on holiday, you don't have to worry about sales targets, marketing KPIs or logistics.
But when you're running the show, these thoughts never quite leave your mind.
It's like a 24/7 never ending loop.
I haven't stepped into the office the entire of today, but I've had my cute butt (haha self praise) firmly planted in a chair and my eyes glued to the computer for hours.
Doing mundane tasks like optimisations and looking analytics + creating new dashboards is such a chore.
I used to find zero purpose in creating new dashboards for my boss, but now, I actually NEED these reports.
Life really comes back to you in weird ways.
Also, I've learnt that life is really funny sometimes. I used to hate numbers and making sense of them.
But now, I'm looking at them all day long trying to dig out insights.
The things you used to hate so much can bring you so much purpose and feel so rewarding when it's for something that really matters. 😒
Anyway, we're giving away a $28 voucher on our private FB group #OBCHICKS, so if you're not part of it yet, please head over to join our poll!!
Haha, anyway, $28 seems like very little but our bralettes are priced very fairly so it can actually get you 2-3 bralettes!
Most shops have to give away $100+ because each item costs $80-100 which is tbh a lot of money. It's the same reason why we can't afford to do 50% off sales or huge price slashes. 😣
I'm so happy that my pimple has FINALLY flattened out and I can start the healing process 😂😂
I've waited too long for this.
Too long 😂
Oh! I forgot to mention that the gorgeous Ladyboss set is now available on OURBRALETTECLUB.com in dusty grey and black!
It's one of our most popular sets thanks to the gorgeous emboridery and mesh overlay. If you liked it previously, definitely check this out too!
