Interesting band name huh?

The lyrics are kinda sad :/

Growing up (TT#111)

Hey lovelies!

Let’s talk about growing up..

There are benefits and disadvantages of being a grown up, I think the following songs may explain some of them.

My sk8ter gurl is back!!! She never gets old ;) Love Avril!

The punk version of Avril’s song. 10 years back she would have done it this way! Love the little “Complicated” medley ;) Purrrrfect!

Two of my favorite songs off Paramore self-titled album!

Can’t stop listening to this <3

Love the gospel feel of this song!

So Avril’s song and Paramore’s may contradict each other in this case. But I’m not on either side, in fact I’m on BOTH sides. As an adult, we need to make decisions on our own, take risks, be responsible, and overall take control of our life. But it’s true that sometimes it sucks to be a grown up. The stress, the complicated things and at these moments you would wish that you had never grown up because being a kid is WAY much easier. You just need to stress about what to play! Lol. I gotta admit that I miss being a kid and not giving a damn about anything. But I know when my parents started dictating or restricting me from things, I’d say “I’m not a kid anymore!” Haha. Dilemma indeed.

Well, since we can’t turn back the time, we just need to deal with it. Being an adult is awesome too. We can do what kids can’t do *troll-face* XD

Hope you’re having a great week!

Lush: Shaving Cream Review

This post is gonna be a review of Prince and Ambrosia shaving cream from Lush. Which one do I prefer? Read further below!

Prince shaving cream was one of the first Lush products that I got when Lush Singapore outlet just opened. I had done my research beforehand on what might be suitable for me. At the shop they only had Prince and Dirty in their shaving cream line at that time. And I was being so smart by forgetting to note down which one I wanted to get based on my research. So, I asked the staff instead and I followed her suggestion. Theeennnn I realized that I wanted Dirty instead of Prince because I was aiming the one for sensitive skin –.- I don’t really trust Lush girl anymore since then.

The verdict of Prince is actually not bad. In fact it’s pretty good. It leaves my skin soft after shaving. It also has this fresh sweet orange smell that I like and even if it’s not stated for sensitive skin, I had no problem from the first time using it till it’s completely finished. The texture is very thick and for “light” shaving you actually don’t need much of it. At the beginning I tended to waste quite a bit of the product.

Since I finished Prince up, I decided to get Dirty this time. But… I got Ambrosia instead. Didn’t I say I trust Lush girl no more? Lol.

I didn’t know that they have a new shaving cream besides Prince and Dirty. Also, the Lush girl INSISTED that this one is for sensitive skin. Okay, so I admit that I get persuaded somewhat easily.. But I've learned that both Ambrosia and Dirty are meant for sensitive skins, it’s just Ambrosia has a lighter texture. It’s more like lotion and Dirty’s texture is comparable to Prince’s.

I remember that I was not a big fan of the smell at first. It’s like banana milk but there’s no even banana in the ingredients haha. It’s hard to describe but it’s definitely not fruity smell. It’s more towards milky smell, well because oat milk is the main ingredient here. Like I said earlier, the texture is really light and the razor glides really smoothly on the skin. I also found that this cream gives me a “cleaner” shave.

So, Prince or Ambrosia?

I gotta say Ambrosia.

It’s just very calming, soothing and light. With the same type of razor, it gives me a smoother and cleaner shave, and leaves me with a very soft skin. I highly recommend this for girls since we don’t have scruffy beards to shave and thus lighter texture would be good enough :D Oh, and did I mention that it’s cheaper as well? :)

Have you tried Lush shaving creams before? If not, which brands do you use?

Have a great day!

May Music! (#TT110)

Hello lovelies!

I know I’ve been MIA for a while, been so busy with work :/

I have so many beauty product reviews coming up! Hope things will go as planned so I’ll have time to blog.

I can’t believe it’s already May! Almost half of 2013 has gone by just like that *POOF*!

Check out this music list and tell me which song you like :)

This boy definitely has grown up, I mean look at him! I can hear young girls screaming from the YouTube comments lol

I never really watched X Factor USA but I think this song is pretty catchy ;)

New Girl Crush 1.0

SO. CUTE. Nuff said.

Glad I found them! P.S. The dog barking in the middle of the video is super random though.

New Girl BIG Crush 2.0–didn’t know she’s the one who sings ‘Ready or Not’! She reminds me of Cher Lloyd a bit ;)

Wasn’t so into it at first but then it got AWESOME-R ;)

New song by Fun.–Quite monotonous in my opinion, but I like the video :)

Hope you enjoyed!!

‘Till next time!
