[Tutorial] Raw Sugar Lip Scrub

One life changing habit that I have developed after living in Melbourne for 4 years is that I can't leave the house without bringing a lipbalm along with me!!!!!!!!

The cold and dry weather in Melbourne always leave me with dry lips. Sometimes, it is so dry to the extent that even smiling is painful. 




I haven't gotten around to try out those famous lip masks from Korean brands. I heard that they are a bomb nowadays, even Michelle Phan featured them in her videos and blog posts too. However, the sad thing is....these are very hard to find in Melbourne, and even if you could find it, it's very pricey (seeing the fact that it's an one-off product which can't be reused, I can't help being stingy!)

One day, I heard Ryan Higa (yes, you read it right, THE RYAN HIGA on Youtube) said that in one of his behind of the scenes video that his makeup artist used raw sugar and honey to scrub his dry lips. 

I was a bit skeptical at first but it's a very low cost and natural remedy to cure dry lips. I had nothing to lose afterall I have all the ingredients in my kitchen anyway :p 




Can't stand the annoying lines on my lips...Especially when I have to put on lipstick or lip tints on my lips...It gets really hideous! 


Instead of following Ryan Higa's method, I only used Raw Sugar. ONLY RAW SUGAR~



I suppose the effect would have been much better if combined with honey, but I didn't have any bit of confidence that I wouldn't make a big mess in the washroom (especially when I had to hold a camera in my other hand). 



Take a small amount of raw sugar and add a few drops of water to it!


Then just massage the wet raw sugar onto your lips for a short while. 30 seconds - 1 minute should be enough. 

Remember to not do it vigorously to avoid hurting your lips~


This is how you will look in the process :p 


No harm eating the raw sugar if you are a sweet tooth :3

After that just wash it off your lips with water. 


It's THIS simple ^^


The result is instant. Your lips are now much smoother and the lines are less visible. Applying lipsticks are much easier too. 


Photos as evidence!!! In just 1 minute!!


I personally love topping it off with a thin layer of Papaw Ointment.

I highly recommend this product because it has proven effective, the only downside of it is that you need to apply with your hand or a brush. 

Not sure whether you can get this everywhere but any lip balm or Vaseline petroleum jelly will do the trick too! 





All done! Smooth lips in just a 1 minute! 

Since I haven't gotten to try out the lip masks I can't justify how effective they are, but this method works well enough for me. Afterall it's a natural remedy that comes with a super low cost :D


Now just go around with a wide smile! 

Remember, a smile is always the best makeup a girl can put on! 

XOXO

My Little Pony Pop! Vinyl Figures

Growing up I have always liked collecting cute things typically for the cartoons that I liked. I have quite a number of collectible items for Doraemon, Pikachu, Molang and Hamtaro! 

I have very low resistance to the things that I really like and I am very guilty for that but what can I do?! 

PS: Also, I am a huge sucker for unicorns! 


I fell in love at first sight when I saw these Pop figurines at Minotaur on Elizabeth Street the other day when I was having a post-exam shopping with my housemate. 

Aren't they cute? ♥♥♥

Vinyls are always cute!!!! How I wish I can have a huge shelf that I can display all my collectible items on! 


Note to self: Work hard to own my very own home soon then I will have a home for my little cuties too :p 


I bought the white Princess Celestia myself and my housemate gave me the blue Trixie Lunamoon as a gift because she couldn't stand me being reluctant to leave the place with only Princess Celestia. I kept on repeating "I feel that Princess Celestia must be with Trixie Lunamoon as a pair, they looked so cute together" and so she said "It sounded like a wrongdoing for separating the 2 of them, so I might as well get it for you"! ♥ Thank you darling!!!!!!!!

I swear if my housemate were a guy, I would've fallen all over for her! HAHAHAH Bitch now you can be ultimately flattered! I don't go around saying this to anybody kay~








My elegant Princess Celestia



♥ Cutiepie Trixie Lunamoon 






Blue little baby with really cute eyes!




AWWWWW my heart is melting seeing them together like this!!!

I put them on my study table so that they can accompany me all the time :3

If you are in Melbourne, Minotaur on Elizabeth Street carries a lot of Pop! vinyl figures, such as Disney characters, Game of Thrones and more. (Check out their website here!). Minotaur is located underground near to Officeworks. I got these babies for $16.99 each. Pricey but they are totally worth it because I can't help smiling when I see them every time!

For Melbourne University students, if you guys didn't know, Co-op bookshops at Bailieu and Alan Gilbert do carry a small range of Pop! vinyl figures too but not much choices available.

Anyway, happy shopping!!!! Also, please feel free to share with me what do YOU like to collect in your lives! Am really interested in knowing ^^

Rushing off to school now! Till next time~

SHE澳大利亞演唱會

打從八歲開始我就很喜歡S.H.E.了。

當年(在這寫“當年”兩個字好像把自己講得很老一樣)隔壁的姐姐在CD店裡發現到她們Superstar的專輯,覺得專輯封面漂亮所以就買下來了。

買了之後就帶過來我家讓我聽。那時候的我還是對這種音樂不感興趣(那個年紀是把農曆行年歌365天輪著聽的年齡拜託),但是聽了那首《半糖主義》之後就迷上了S.H.E.

那時候開始就很瘋S.H.E.了。

幾乎報紙上有關S.H.E.的報導我都會剪下來珍藏。

由於那時候年紀還小,媽媽把我管得很嚴所以都不會讓我去看演唱會或是買正版專輯。

但是,有一次因為S.H.E.竟然會到檳城去開簽名會,而且只要是持有正版PLAY專輯的粉絲就可以獲得簽名(不用門票)我足足吵了1個禮拜多結果媽媽就讓我去了。簽名會的那晚S.H.E.去ASTRO星秀大賽那里當表演嘉賓而且我朋友的媽竟然會有多餘的票所以我也很幸運地從遙遠的遠方看了S.H.E.的現場演出!那是我13歲的回憶~

看S.H.E.當表演嘉賓當然不能滿足我啊!要看當然是看她們的演唱會嘛!

來到澳大利亞之後我就覺得要看S.H.E.的機會幾乎是0,但是怎麼知道突然間就在去年年尾,我突然在Facebook Timeline上看到一則廣告 - S.H.E.和炎亞綸竟然會來到貓本開唱!

興奮的人當然不只我一個!我的室友超哈炎亞綸的但是一直沒機會看他的現場演出,所以一看到這廣告,我們兩個就決定,不管怎麼樣,這場演唱會非去不可!!!!






我一直以來都是覺得只要有機會看SHE唱現場我會不管一切地買最前面的票,但是因為這次有炎亞綸。。。如果只是單單SHE的話我的錢包鐵定爛了!

買了正中間的票,大概180澳幣吧。。。我2年前看CNBLUE的時候180刀的票讓我站在我老公鄭容和前面的說!




室友兼好友!朋友就是要一起做些瘋狂的事,一起實現夢想 !!但是,好像都是我在帶壞她!哈哈 #sorryNOTsorry

對,這一晚,我們倆的夢想真的一起實現了!超感動的說!



等了好久終於快開始了!


首先是炎亞綸!

一副很有王子風範地出場。

















抱歉啦亞倫哥,我知道你的歌是很好聽的但是我等的人不是你啊~不好意思!

我室友總算見到自己的老公了,眼睛都盯著他!所以我就充當攝影師幫她拍照留念咯!


終於炎亞綸下台去了,熒幕上播放了S.H.E.的錄像!

我簡直要瘋掉了!!

現場的粉絲們都跟我一樣HIGH到不行!



眼前看到的是活生生的S.H.E.天團!!!!女王啊!!!!我的SHERO ♥♥




真的很不能相信竟然在墨爾本這種鬼地方還能看到自己的女神們!做夢都沒想過!

3女子的聲音都超好聽的!真的跟專輯裡的錄音沒差!實力啊 實力啊~ 我很自豪地跟我室友說:“看到了沒,這就是我崇拜整半世人的女神們!!沒騙你吧!!”

















































我真的很享受這場演唱會!親眼看見女王們在台上表演搞笑,尤其是Ella和Selina!兩為已成為人妻的姐姐竟然好像不受控制的小孩一樣;Hebe大多就在一旁看著她們瘋!好可愛!

演唱會的尾聲我看到哭了!還好我早就預料到我鐵定會感動得哭,所以沒化妝去看演唱會!哈哈!看容和歐巴的時候我沒哭,但是看SHE哭慘了!好感動!這是我從8歲開始的夢想~終於在我21歲的這年實現了!這應該是人家所謂的“皇天不負苦心人”吧!

這三位漂亮的女神,對我而言,不只是偶像,也像家人。她們不認識我不重要,但是她們陪著我成長,我也跟其他粉絲們一樣陪著她們成長看著她們出嫁(好像送親姐姐出嫁的感覺哦)。就這樣,不知不覺中,SHE陪了我13年,我也陪了她們13年。不知道幾時還會再親眼看到她們,但是只要我逮到機會,肯定去看她們的表演!



這三位女神,我這輩子跟定了!
