My Sister’s Intended – E.L. Montague

Pages: 121

Classic romance, between two people who coincidently and hopelessly start falling for each other. Unfortunately the other is promised to another.

James a handsome and sought-after bachelor isn’t interested in petty and vain women, he is looking for the one. He is arranged to marry to a woman he isn’t in love with. He is in love with another…

I enjoyed the read, it was light and the plot was quick to follow. It started off by beautifully setting up character development and romance between the two main lovers, which smoothly progressed to illustrate their societal and personal challenges.  I would have loved for the story to further expand on the characters’ problems, as I felt it would give further character insight. The characters are easily likeable and a further look into their lives, would have been amazing! It is a classic throwback to forbidden love stories, which is always exciting to read.

ABSOLUTE TRUTH, FOR BEGINNERS – Katrina West

Pages: 379

Aside from the intriguing titles of each chapter, the whole novel itself is as compelling as each turn of the page.

Elisa Mancini is a Nobody. Painfully insecure, more at a ease with books than with people, at twenty-three she’s a university dropout living at her aunt’s…

Written beautifully, readers are instantly submerged into Elisa Mancini’s personal life. It was like travelling side by side with her, seeing and feeling what she was experiencing. But, below the surface I found myself learning the complexities of love and the fine line of obsession, as well as finding one’s identity. I recommend you having a read of this novel, you will be taken on an unforgettable journey.

I kept holding my tears back

I FINALLY WATCHED FURIOUS 7! It was awesomely action-packed which had me entertained, so basically the film flashed before my eyes haha not in a bad way. But because it was so enjoyable, that I’ve got to say this is yet their best instalment. They kept the original loved cast members, and tied the casts’ individual stories into this, you’ll understand when you watch it. Also, it was freaking hilarious! Never had a dull moment during the film.

The ending, got to me so bad… it was a super simple but moving ending that commemorated Paul Walker. I freaking loved it, like honestly it is not going to feel the same without Paul Walker. Vin Diesel you got me teary at the end, your face contained all those deep captured emotions, it was so real. But seriously, go watch it! Not too cliché at all, the action sequences was amazing.

Clear Improvement Mask

I rarely have used masks before, and this product is amazing! Like amazing x100000!

Origins: Clear Improvement Mask $34

This product is stuff of legends! Kidding just exaggerating, this product though I might say for the moment is my all time favourite thing to apply, when I do my face cleanse. I have read previously of reviews, positives ones mostly, and I just needed to try it out.

It first states to lightly moist the face with warm water, so your pores allow the goodies into your skin. The main 3 elements are Active Charcoal (like a magnet, it brings out the oils/dirt that clog your pores) + White China Clay (mineral benefits that draws out oils and gently exfoliates the skin without over-drying) and lastly Lecithin (hydrates, replenishes and repairs).

A little goes a long way, I only maybe put two thin layers onto my face avoiding the eye area. I sure know its working when I start to get that slight skin tingle, it doesn’t sting at all. After maybe 3 minutes, you just wash it off and place over it with your favourite moisturiser.

For product that does its job perfectly and gives a decent amount of it, you get a great bargain for just $34! For the next few days, my skin feels cleaned deep within and it not only controlled the oils but also minimized breakouts.

Appreciation of dates

…or what ever you may call them. The boyfriend and I had the quickest lunch followed by a mini photo-shoot, which resulted in this:

There’s more but I don’t want to make this post streaming with our faces ahaha

I loved how we got to talk about anything, not had to argue and listened to music to and from the city. It is rare for us both to go out to the city together and hang, most times we choose for closer locations. Most times we hardly have time spent together because of work and that university life, even though we do see each other at the end of the day, but going out on dates together really is something special.

Nowadays I would visit this coffee place once in a blue moon, because previously I would visit this place religiously during my break. & the reason being was my cravings for this:

Remember that cronut craze? I don’t know if it’s just as popular as it was before. But believe me, when I say that this is the best I’ve tasted. Its taste is delicately sweet, once you bite into it there is no turning back (unless of you want to get more). The top may look similar to a Krispy Kreme doughnut, hell no, it’s just on another level. It’s not too sweet and it blends well with the pastry. Gulp this down with their organic hot chocolate, and you’re in heaven.

Is it real or idealistic

Like what’s bugging me at the moment, is the destroying fact that people who are close to you can emotionally break you. When they say one thing and then when another plan is presented to them, they immediately forget about the present person. It’s like “hey, I was here first, I’m still here”. Being disregarding like that, is like being treated like an unwanted something/one.

Yes, you and I know they’ll come back, but if you are like me who does not like that pull-and-push game, believe me it is horrendously exhausting. You can either be placid about it (because it happens so often), angry, spiteful or just emotionally and mentally wrecked.

*sigh*

I try and tackle this from a logical play, because once you over step that emotionally path, well… you might dig yourself into a deeper hole. Presenting your argument by facts, can not only demonstrate your great memorisation skills but also puts you into a stronger position. That’s how I did it today, no empathy, just hard-cold-facts. Because, what’s more satisfying than the truth?

Unfortunately, I did not entirely get what I want but the main thing out of it, is the fact that I made my point across and hopefully the strategy given can somewhat pave the way to a happier journey.
