Pray for Nepal

I am still in shock… And the more I keep thinking, the more my heart breaks in pieces and tears run down the corners of my eyes. Nepal was hit by a 7.9 magnitude earthquake this noon and all parts of Nepal had felt the earthquake, especially affecting Kathmandu and Pokhara. As a nepali living aboard, I feel even more helpless for my country… & it is the worst feeling ever. All I can do on my side is pray and help in any way I can possible.

  
One of our oldest historic landmark, Dharahara was brought down and it kills me that along with many of our nation’s possession, so many innocent souls have been lost today. 

 I remember vaguely climbing the Dharhara in 2006 as a 14 year old when I went for a visit after more than a decade. At that time, I didn’t care for it but now knowing that it is gone & never will be able to do it… I have come to appreciate it. This is a true reminder how we sometimes take things for granted… Once there, forever gone. 

   

I pray for all the lost souls, safety of those that made through and for the healing of my beautiful country.  Please keep Nepal in your prayers… For we will stand stronger.

Before us

Β 

Sometimes all we want to do is get away, away from where we are, to somewhere foreign, so we always look far ahead, but maybe… sometimes we need not see what’s on the otherside… But maybe what’s in before us.Β 

Β Maybe sometimes we just forget to look ahead and maybe forget the beauty that we once fled away to.Β I guess sometimes we just forget to admire the beauty that’s right before our eyes πŸ’›Β

Dear Mum,

It was Mother’s day in Nepal yesterday and I actually found out thanks to facebook during my morning scrolling routine! I was already confused last month, seeing all my friends in UK wishing their mothers and I thought I had missed it, only to realize that it was UK’s mother’s day. That’s how I learnt that different places had their own date for mother’s day. Here in Hong Kong, it is sometime in May. For many of us, coming from Nepal to Hong Kong, I guess our mothers get the best of both places!

When I think of my mother, instantly it is tears that fill my eyes because I can’t believe how blessed I am to be her daughter! She is the most significant part of my life and it is because of her, I have the world. There aren’tΒ any amount of words that can completely compare to what she means to me and even writing this, makes my heart melt with so much love.

Thank you mummy (i am still a little girl with my mum! :P) for giving me the world and always being my backbone selflessly. I can’t tell you how much I love you but I will keep trying, so here is my never-ending attempt, I love you so much.

Yours truly,

Daughter πŸ™‚

 

Better days :)

Had a long day? Well, I guess when you see such a sky at the end of the day while driving home, it becomes all worth it and you start to appreciate what nature has to offer! In that sense, after a long day, the mesmerising sky is only telling you that tomorrow might be a better day! πŸ™‚

Eyebrows on Fleek? Checked!

Hey everyone! Hope you had a good Easter break! Can’t believe I have been gone for a while but now I’m back to share my little discovery and so excited to share my experience with this beauty product! πŸ˜€

I never really cared for my eyebrows… & they would pass as long as they weren’t too bushy or hairy but.. recently with the Anastasia Brow wiz and Dipbrow Pomade, I finally figured how important they are and the satisfaction I have been missing!

I have been using the Anastasia Brow Wiz for a while and then today, I finally tried the Dipbrow Pomade and I feel like my life is complete, literally!

It is quite a splurge as they cost slightly more and I too was skeptical but believe me, it is worth every penny! I finally understand the hype with these eyebrow products from Anastasia. I first purchased the Brow Wiz (Dark brown) because I wanted something easy for everyday that I can easily fill in and brush on. It really does the work and make your brows appear naturally as it is, but a bit more defined. However, I wasn’t expecting the pencil to be so skinny but the formula is quite waxy, so it seems like it will last for a good amount of time (worth that $$).

What I am impressed with even more is the Dipbrow Pomade (dark brown)! The jar is just filled with magic for Β your brows! It especially complements the brow wiz, intensifying the eyebrows and really making it stand out! The formula is creamy and pigmented, yet it doesn’t smudge or rub off easily. A little goes a loooooong way, so I can only imagine that this item will be with me forever! Haha! The only thing, however is that it doesn’t come with an angled brush or spooley to apply on the product, so if you are a beginner, you might have to purchase that separately (any type/brand should work just as well).

I am probably the last girl in here to be raving on these products that was released so longgg but I just had to share this excitement of having such satisfying eyebrows! My eyebrows naturally are not so defined and ends short. They also don’t really exist unless you look up-close. . With the Brow Wiz and Dipbrow Pomade, they have been getting so much more attention and I love it!

Now, my eyebrows are totally on point! Not perfect but definitely on fleek! Have you tried these products? What are you thoughts on them?
