Photo Diary : Into the winter.

How do you cope when life is busy? It's going to be my study break but it's sadly not going to be a relaxing week since I still have to go to work and there are more midterm exams coming up in March. So today, I decided to unwind and take a walk around the park with my siblings since the weather was quite nice (still cold but not very cold). It seems that winter won't be over soon so I guess we just have to deal with it whether we like it or not. And in order for us not to be grumpy about it, we gotta get out of the house and appreciate the beauty of our surroundings.

It was also a great chance for me to take photos and practice using my new DLSR camera. I love photography, if you read my previous post, I mentioned that I always wanted to do something creative. Photography became something that I love to do last year. It really makes me happy taking pictures! I haven't really figured out how to shoot ideally with the "manual" option yet. I wanted to learn it because many people emphasize the importance of using the manual mode to get the best shots.

Get to know me! Liebster's award questions.

Today's post will consist of  some things about me as I answer some questions from Liebster Award. I was nominated by Samantha ( Samantha Series ) and Aissa ( Tea in January ). Thank you girls! I wasn't really familiar with this award but I'm happy I got nominated. I think this is a great way to spread the love among other bloggers.

Valentine's Day Look

Valentine's Day is just 2 days away, are you planning to go on a date with your boyfriend, husband or girlfriends?  In my case, my boyfriend and I don't really have a plan yet but luckily, we both don't have work and school therefore we'll be able to celebrate this special day. One good thing about Valentine's day is that it enables me to use my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette which has been put aside lately. I love this palette so much, it's the perfect romantic eye shadow palette because of  its rosy shades. I just prefer using one of my other eye shadow palettes in the last couple of weeks, hence my abandonment  for this naked palette. 

Winter Skin Essentials

Let's talk about my winter skin care warriors! As you might already know, I live in a very cold place, our temperature could go down to -30 to -40 ºC (feels like) which is really harsh for the skin even though we wrap ourselves with a lot of layers. Dry skin is inevitable, thus, using hydrating and moisturizing products is a must. Thankfully, I was able to find products that are affordable.

Hi! I apologize for not being able to post anything on my blog for almost a week. Unfortunately, I got sick and I was suddenly unmotivated these past few days but I'm happy to be back again.Today, I want to share some gift ideas for your significant other or your other loved ones. Remember, you don't have to buy expensive gifts. It's always the thought that counts. In the past, I have given my boyfriend a picture frame with a picture of us and a memory box that didn't cost me a lot of money but he was really touch by my simple gestures. These are just some ideas in case you don't mind spending money.  

                                                                                                Have an amazing week!
