Life has been pretty crazy lately.. non-stop school works, never-ending weeks of exam, heartaches and insecurities piling up.. With that, my frustration has gone up to an extremely high level. Isn’t it so baffling when things don’t go your way? You’ve tried so hard but then it’s still not enough? You sometimes wonder if there’s something wrong with you.. or maybe it’s all about perfect timing.. sounds cliché but life unfolds that way..
When disappointment hits me, having a bowl of chicken noodle soup brings me back to my childhood where I just simply don’t care about anything. Sometimes, you’ll find comfort in the most odd and naive ways. Whether it be with a bottle of beer, good food or that special someone who can instantly put a smile on your face. Oh add a warm, tight hug with that.
I don’t even know if I’m making any sense in these big blobs of texts. Hmm, pardon my after midnight thoughts. They keep on jumping up and down.
Anywhoo, I hope you guys are having a good week so far! It’s almost the end of the week, hang in there!
My apologies if I have been a bad blogger recently. Sea full of papers, my monitor jammed with power points and bum planted in chair/bed pretty much sums up my hectic week. And it doesn’t end there, I still have an upcoming series of exams. Oh well, c’est la vie.
Secrets.. we all have secrets. I feel like when I use one of Victoria’s Secret body mist or lotion, I can be one of the angels, well, at least and that’s the closest that I can get. I fancy their products à la max. Now, another thing, which is probably not a secret to my regular readers anymore, is the fact that I go nuts over makeup products. I don’t apply or use heavy makeup on a daily basis but just the thought of having tons of it, makes me happy as a lark (oh yes, I’m a hoarder). Alright, this post seems to be going nowhere… this is just a quick update and I pinky promise to get back on track so I’m leaving you with a conceited photo of mine and a Hi. ‘Til my next post!
What’s your secret?
P.S. I’m cooking up another Ask Nikkiissh post so send in your queries if you have one! Drop ‘em here: http://nikkiissh.tumblr.com/ask/
It’s currently 5:57 AM and here I am, composing this text. No, I don’t have class until 12:30 in the afternoon and you’re right that I should still be in bed, snuggling and wrapping myself like a cocoon. My sleep schedule in wholly messed up. I think I’ve woken up countless of times during the night, ended up opening all the apps that I have on my phone. What a bummer.
Anyhow, it’s starting to feel a little bit like Christmas! Cold weather is on its way and who knows maybe we’ll see some flakes falling from the sky just like yesterday. Jumpers and knit sweaters are my best buds. And just before heading home, I decided to drive around to destress. I settled in a good few hours at Starbucks, ordered a Gingerbread latte for a more Christmas-y feel and it’s heaven, heaven, I tell you.x
FACE OF THE DAY
Hey there, beautiful ones! Now, I don’t post looks very often because I find that my face routine is very basic and I’m awful when it comes to capturing colours in camera.
Anywhoo, here are the products that I used today on my face, of course, you want to start with a clean canvas so grab your favourite facial wash and moisturizer and you’re ready to start!
When it comes to make up, I’m all about hydration and protection. Who wants to go out with an irritated blotchy face? No one.
For school, I leave the bronzer, blusher and eyeshadow (the eyeshadow in the picture was used to fill in my brows, which I have yet to perfect) out of the picture because I always want to have a fresh au naturel look. However, a little dab of bronzer and blusher won’t hurt!

Been seeing this post floating around tumblr recently (Camie’s blog) and since I owe you guys a lot of blog posts, I decided to give it a try + my laziness is looking like a number 8 now. Why? try to lay it flat and it’s infinite. Anyhow, I promise to do my best and update more often.
