My Beauty Resolutions for 2014

Good day mate!


Through the very awesome Butterfly Project, YADAH is inviting 50 bloggers to a party this coming 4th of January! 

I AM EXCITED BECAUSE I HAVE NOT BEEN TO A SINGLE BLOGGER EVENT FOR OVER A YEAR ALREADY AND THIS EVENT SOUNDS PREEETTY DARN GOOD. God so help me I am going to this one.

The lil' girl's Yadah and that's her pet alien, Yom Yom. Hi Yadah. Hi Yom yom.

To stand a chance of being chosen as one of the lucky 50, YADAH x The Butterfly Project prompted me to stand back and think about how I wanted to improve my overall wellness and uhm... beauty for the coming year.

So I present to you MY BEAUTY RESOLUTIONS:

1. Love myself
If you're confident and happy with how you are and look, nothing else matters. One bad habit is to compare ourselves with other people. So I try my best lah.


2. Stop touching my face.
You see, the worse my skin is, the more tempted I am to fuss about my skin. Everyone shares my sentiments? So one way I found effective to combat this is to not look at the mirror (as much as possible) and to put my mind on other matters.

3. Eat healthier and more
Since I lost a bit too much weight, my skin has been in a pretty bad shape. So I've been trying to eat more food and healthier food. 

My drawing of food looks very bland. Because healthy food is bland. No I'm just kidding. No I'm not. But I will eat.
Although I will always love my maggi.

4. Sleep earlier
Good quality sleep = healthy, glowy skin.
Lemme get this straight. I sleep very late as a habit. But this is going to change next year because I have to be waking up at 5 something a.m. for the next 2 months. I will have no choice. Blessing in disguise!

5. Work that booty!
FYI, I just finished my exams. So I wrote down a list of thing to do after exams. I haven't gotten to the exercise part yet. I am going to get to it. I think I'm going for more resistance training and less cardio. Because I don't wanna lose any more boobies.

6. Buy GOOD QUALITY make up & throw the bad ones out
THIS. God so help me, I am going to BUY. Due to the fact that I don't put make up much at all, my old make up has gone stale. But next year, I resolve to spend more time "decorating" my face =.= and invest in QUALITY make up and not cheapos.

7. Use natural, organic products. (This is a long one. You are going to suffer)
Psychologically, I am very uncomfortable with using chemical-based products. Because I don't wanna die young, I research suspicious sounding ingredients and what I find are not exactly unicorns.

This is also due to the fact that I come from a family that advocates taking care of the skin through using as little chemicals as possible. I've also seen first hand what harsh chemicals like steroids can do to the skin over time. And it is not a pretty sight.


I know it's nearly impossible to avoid using chemicals. I do use chemical-based skincare although I try to minimize my dependence on them as much as possible. But there are dangerous cancer-causing substances like parabens and sulphates out there that we should avoid if we can. 

I've been researching natural skincare methods like oil-cleansing (not with your usual cleansing oil but rather with actual organic cold-pressed oils like olive oil, avacado oil etc.), uses of apple cider vinegar and mixing up vegetables and fruits as face masks. 

The problem with natural remedies is that it's time consuming and it is going to create a lot of mess in the kitchen. Also you have to be careful not to mess up your skin's acid mantle (the natural balance of the skin) so research is inevitable.

Organic skincare lines like Juice Beauty and KORA Organics are pretty pricey and not available in Malaysia. 

So long-winded...

So when I was introduced to YADAH skincare, an organic natural South Korean skincare line, my interest was piqued. 


Not only is this line gentle yet effective, it's also chemical-free, has no artificial colouring and is derived from natural plant ingredients!
OKAY. I NEED THIS. PLEASE. SOMEONE HELP ME. I NEED THIS SO BAD.
