I’m posting for 7 days straight for my project of “7 Days Birthday Countdown 2018” to commemorate my age being in its last days of 28.
This is the 2nd post and if you haven’t read my 1st post, you may head to July, My Most Favourite Month.
After living for almost 29 years, I would say that this is the first time that I actually make a physical list on the things that are important to me. Cos before this, I only have them on my mind. Obviously family, love, my fiancé are super important to me but I don’t consider them as things. By things here I mean is the necessities, everyday items that I use in my every day life.
In no particular order, here are my 10 things that I can’t live without!
I can’t live without it is an understatement. Totally feel dead inside if I don’t have my iPhone with me cos iPhone is my life. I basically use it 90% of my time to watch Netflix, Instagram, Google. I also use it to connect with my family and also Clarence (given that we are in a LDR). My iPhone acts as my main camera as well for now before I get myself a ‘point & shoot’ compact camera.
I LOVE COFFEE AND I’M ADDICTED TO IT! The stronger and blacker it is, the better. I prefer my coffee unsweetened and my usual order would be either Kopi-o ping, Kopi ping Kaw, Iced Latte extra shot, Long Black or Iced Americano.
As soon as Netflix was made available in Malaysia, I subscribed to it immediately! Ever since my dad has cancelled most of interesting channels from our cable subscription, I don’t really watch TV anymore. So grateful for HDMI cable that I’m able to connect my laptop to my TV when I crave for watching Netflix on a larger screen.
I spend most of my time there. Although it may not be the most comfiest bed probably because of the other mess that I have other than my pillows (my clothes, books etc), I still love that queen sized bed of mine!
Young Living Essential Oils and Diffuser
So I’ve just started to venture into the world of oils and I fell in love quite immediately. Before the decision to buy it, I read through a lot of the benefits from essential oil and how it can be used as a natural remedy for almost everything. I was actually googling natural remedy for my Sinusitis and Eczema and essential oils came at the top of the search result. After 1 month plus treating both of my conditions with essential oils, I’ve becoming less relying on meds. Of course there are days that Sinusitis and Eczema came to attack but it has become bearable. All I need is to diffuse RC when I have my bad Sinusitis days and to massage Lavender on to the Eczema. No chemical, just natural essential oils.
My Skincare Routine
I have 2 skincare routines that I do everyday, religiously! They used to be more than 6 steps in a routine but now I only have 4 steps in the morning and 6 for night. I just feel that it is important for me to have really good skin since I don’t wear much makeup. If I have to choose 1 product that I can’t live without from the bunch, it would be The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% cos it really helped me in combating acne or zits from popping out.
Makeup: Brow Pencil, Gel Eyeliner and Lipstick
For my everyday look, I’m pretty basic. I’m the type who likes to let my skin breath so I don’t wear foundation on a daily basis. So all I do to my face everyday is I do my brow using Silky Girl’s Perfect Brow Liner. What I like about this brow kit is that it has gel liner at 1 end and powder and the other. Very convenient that I don’t have to bring my brow powder kit. I only have 1 go-to gel eyeliner and it’s the Maybelline’s Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. As for my lipstick, I usually wear whatever colour according to my mood but my go-to would be my Kat Von D’s Lolita II and my orangey lipcream that is from Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick in Gingerbread.
Disco era 70’s Songs
I listen to this genre, every single day! This kind of songs actually boost my mood when I’m not in the right mood, PMS or even sick. I felt so much better when listening to them and made me want to dance. It all started by my parents, my siblings and I have been listening to disco songs at a very early age. My favourite would be Boney M’s version of Sunny, Rock with You by Michael Jackson. I also love September by Earth, Wind & Fire and I was thinking for it to become my entrance song during my wedding.
I am blind and I’m like literally can’t see what’s in front of me without my glasses. I like contact lens but it’s so troublesome to wear in the morning and it’s another chore when I need to take it off! Yes, I am that lazy Lol!
Laptop and Internet
Okay these 2 things are important since my job as a lecturer requires me to do all my work on my laptop and Internet is to look for information to aid in my teaching. But I won’t be denying that I also use the laptop for nonwork-related stuff too.
You know what, I actually love doing this kind of list. It’s so fun to read!
