The Bedtime Tag

Welcome back to my blog! So as I've promised in my last post that I'll be doing the bedtime tag, I finally did it! I'm very excited cos tags are just so fun to do and it's also a way to get to know me better. So let's not waste any more time and get it started!

Numero Uno...

1. What are your favourite pajamas?
Shorts + oversized t-shirts. Comfort is the key for cozy night time. Anything that I find comfortable in really. Also depending on the weather as well when you're staying in a place where it's summer all year-round. But right now I'm wearing a lot of sweatpants/yoga pants or pajama bottoms.

2. Current bedtime reading?
Lullabies by my favourite poet Lang Leav. It's a lovely book of poetry and the second one from her. I even tweeted it a long while back in September what I was reading before bed. It's been so long and I haven't finished it but there's only a few pages left. I wasn't consistent in reading every night which is something I wanna work on. This is the kind of book that you could read it again and again and each time it'll bring about different feelings and emotions to it. It is a very lovely book and I totally recommend it for light easy reading when you unwind at the end of the day. Although I can't say the same for the emotions it brings.

3. What is on your bedside table?
Here's the thing- my bedside table isn't technically a bedside table cos it's not at my bedside. Hah! I'd used it instead in my vanity area at my mirror as normal storage drawers for my random stuff. I usually just use my chair to put things on when I'm on my bed. So to answer this question would be- my phone, remote control (for miscellaneous electronics in my room) and sometimes earphones.

4. Favourite sleepy scent?
I don't think I have any. I'm actually very particular about scents during daytime or other times when I'm awake but when it comes to night time, I kinda prefer it to be in a neutrally non-scented surroundings when I'm going to bed. I guess I'll say none in particular for this.

5. What is your usual bedtime & wakeup time?
I like the comfort of the dark and silence at night so I normally go to bed really late (or early, I dunno how you see times like this) in the AM. I won't even put a time here cos the hour is just ungodly. Then in the morning it really just depends on what I have going on that day if there's any errands to run or appointments to attend to. It could be 6 a.m. call time or I could sleep in till noon. Who knows? No day is the same for me.

6. Top 3 bedtime products.
My favourite L'occitane Shea Butter hand cream, Spotify sleep playlists & my phone, basically. I need to catch up on my SNS at the end of the day.

7. Your most common sleeping position?
I sleep on my back, always.

8. Any strange bedtime routines?
I'm answering this last because I'm thinking really hard to see if there's any weird things I do before bed & I can't think of any, or at least I think it isn't strange to me. Aside from the routine brush-your-teeth-before-bed and skincare prep kinda stuff, everything seems normal to me.

9. Are you big spoon or little spoon?
You see, I wouldn't know cos I've never spooned with anyone before but I prefer to be the little spoon in this situation.

Annnndddd that's it! That was the bedtime tag. I dunno if it was any fun to read but it was rather interesting to me. It even made me reflect on my nightime routine more than I ever would have. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed it and if you decide to do the tag, let me know in the comments or twitter or wherever I am in the SNS world.

I hereby tag all of YOU!

See you soon!

What went down.

Hello everybody! It's been long overdue, I know and I seriously think it's high time I dust off this blog and start updating. For I guess the past couple of years or so, I put this site into a corner and I wasn't paying much attention to it at all. Posts were scarce like water in the Sahara. Mainly because I simply didn't know what to do with this site. Should I write about my feelings? Emotions? Friends and family stuff? Things I do on the daily? What if I say too much? What will happen when people know too much? I constantly have this back and forth of a conversation in my head and I ended up just leave it as it is. I also had a lot going on in my life where I wouldn't be comfortable sharing with, and I just didn't see the point of writing and having no content.

But in the end, I think if things are bound to happen, it'll happen. I have no reason to beat myself up for it and blaming myself for everything that went the other way, also just to appreciate the blessings and silver lining that came along with it plus things I wouldn't have had if it were to be the other way.

Now deep thoughts aside, updates wise, the beginning of 2015 for me had some unexpected twist and turns - I attended the wedding of my close high school friend. It was so much feels and I'm just so happy seeing her being happy to have found her soulmate. That was back in January. February was a turning point that set the momentum for the entire year. I fell sick and on bed rest for close to a month. Liquid diet and all the other restrictions that made me unable to do anything. I literally only ate diluted liquid oats and drank water for 3 weeks. I wasn't getting any solid foods until the last week of February. It was brutal. I wish never to relive it ever again. And then, I've also made some closure and tying loose ends on issues that should have been handled way earlier and better than how I left it be. But in the end I'm glad I can close that chapter. Right now, I just hope for better months ahead on recuperating and just do what I gotta do.

I've also noticed I never set a specific theme for this site on what I should write about. Most of it are really just rambles and random stuff that I got going on in my head to put in writing. Inconsistent and jumbly for lack of a better word. Albeit, after much consideration I've finally decided on what I wanted to write about - my passion for fashion, beauty and lifestyle & the occasional bits and bobs of my random muses. Still pretty much the same from what I've been writing hahaa.. but an improved version of it all nonetheless. Posts will be more consistent with more content but NO PROMISES. Please don't hold it against me. I am trying my very best here to figure things out, please be patient and I'd be immensely grateful for all the support I get.

SO, that's about it on the things I want to fill you all in on. I'm going to kickstart the momentum on The Bedtime Tag I watched by Fleur DeForce on Youtube for the next post. Do come back and check it out & if you've read all the way here, I give you a pat on the back!

See you soon!
