Saturday; about Jill Stuart

Greetings! I really need to step up my blogging game, aren't I? I decided to do the 'Daily Themed' blog post (how original) and Saturday will be for 'beauty'. While I mentioned I'll post majority of my beauty related post on blingvoyage, the ones written here will be a quick run down or pretty things with short description instead of in depth review and what not. Today will be about Jill Stuart.

Another thing that 'caught me' while I was in Japan was Jill Stuart, and unlike Liz Lisa, even after I returned to my country, they're still accessible (budget wise as well w). Jill Stuart is a lovely brand, packaging wise and product wise. If you're one for heavy and matte makeup, they might not cater to your liking. Oily face aside, I genuinely love their product.

Pictured above were my Jill Stuart collection as in January this year; foundation, lip balm, hand cream (definitely my holy grail), eyeshadow, eyelash curler, and lip pencil, along with 2015 journal. My collection has grown by now and so far I'm loving each of them, they perform really well. I recommend this brand, especially if you love sparkly and shimmery makeup, if you're visiting Japan since they're (almost) exclusively sold there.

That's it for now, folks. Now, tell me what's your favorite makeup brand!

It was a month ago

...I took all these pictures.

Greetings! These last two months had been hectic and draining for me, mentally and physically. It all had to do with work but I won't 'blame' it on them. Instead, I'd like to thank everyone for the opportunity that had been given to me. Despite the seemingly endless workloads and the increasing night where I found myself awake longer than necessary, I managed to find comfort, either from people around me or small thing such as delicious food (or your favorite artist announcing their solo album yass).

A lovely friend from when I was staying in Japan came to my country for a study until December, and despite how much I wanted to spend more time with here, a meeting once in a month is already a blessing for me. She's such a kind and precious girl who had helped me a lot during my stay back then. She also taught me how to skate and said I might have a knack for it; yes, that was my first time skating.

It is through something like this; meeting friend and having a good time, just talking, forgetting depressing thought and having lovely time overall, that I gain my comfort from. I love being alone or having my own space and time but sometimes (or, lately), I feel like I need a company, it doesn't have to be two, just one, who's willing to pour all their attention to me and let me do the same to them.

This is getting into depressive note very fast w I apologize. On the brighter side, as I mentioned above, my favorite singer released his (2nd) solo album and it's absolutely glorious! I'd love to talk about it on another post.

Oh, don't forget to check lovely Amez's beauty blog blingvoyage,」which I sort of run together with her! See you next time!
