30 Quotes 13 Reasons Why


I am an avid Netflix junkie, I could spend days straight binge watching any series that I find interesting. 13 Reasons Why is no exception, I think I saw somewhere that it was good, but I didn't think that it was somehow a life changing experience for me.

I won't talk about the series, in case some of you have not watched it yet...but let me leave you with this realization, I am blessed that I went through High school unscaved, with all the drama that we went through somehow me and my lifetime friends survived. 

And some even said that it's a series glamorizing suicide..hahahahah well everyone has their own opinion, what I think? It's a topic that people don't want to talk about but it's happening to a lot of people not only to teens. What the show is about then...It's about we as a person or a human being in that matter have to be nice to one another, that's it...be nice, good, gracious and sad it may be, we needed a show like 13 Reason Why to remind us this.

Oh my, I could rant and tell stories about anxiety, depression, self doubt but that will be another post, for I am not even sure how to write it or if I could even share it...

Anyways, I've decided to make a post about the 13 Reason Why Quotes, I know it's a depart from my motivational positivity quotes, well I am not even so sure what I will write when I post it in Instagram but somehow I know I could put an inspirational motivation twist on it.  

So here it goes... 
































And there it is 30 Quotes from 13 Reasons Why, you could download the full collection HERE.

Have you watched 13 Reasons Why? What are your thoughts about the series let me know at the comment section below or favorite quote from the series.

Till my next adventure Belles...remember Be courageous, kind and a blessing to everyone you meet.

Beauty: Innisfree Emoji No-Sebum Mineral Powder collection


Haiz!!! My self control in buying cute things is getting worse by the day. Beauty brands knows that collaborating with cutie brands is an awesome marketing move.

Meeting my brother for dinner at Jurong Point, well as you guys know when am left alone I tend to window shop that will lead into me buying something that I don't necessarily need at the moment.


The Innisfree shop is right at the entrance, I've been using their no sebum mineral powder for months now and I love it I used it on it's own or as a finishing powder for my makeup.


The powder is infused with Jeju natural minerals to keep skin comfortable and fresh all day, and leaves a matte finish. Free of parabens, talc, colorant, animal ingredients, mineral oil and synthetic fragrance, it’s suitable for sensitive skin.

No plans of buying anything..as I've said window shopping right..guess what greeted me when I entered...



Not 1 but 11 emoji's!!!!!!!!

Then I found out for the 11th anniversary of Innisfree’s No-Sebum Mineral Powder, they have collaborated with Emoji to launch a limited edition Innisfree x Emoji No-Sebum Mineral Powder collection. 


Instead of its usual mint green packaging, the Innisfree x Emoji No-Sebum Mineral Powder ($10 each) range is imprinted with 11 different emojis. 

told myself I need to get my hands on the adorable line. Not 1 but 4!!!! actually I wanted all...clap clap i have self control :-)


Ok!! I might still got myself a bit overboard hahahhaha well... i can defend it. I am planning to give 3 of it to my sister and friends hahahahaa, one has to share the happiness that these cuties brings me right?

So what's the difference from this?


Nothing!! It's the same formula only with cute emoji packaging, which to me is all worth the $10 splurge even if I still have the powder that could last me for another few months...remember Limited Edition it will not be in their stores forever.


And the puff inside is in bright yellow.


and one great thing is the expiry date!!!!


2020!!! Which means I could buy a few more or all to keep as Christmas Gifts, then I wont be so guilty and I will just open my drawer and look at them when am blue!!!

And since I purchased $40.00 I was able to get a free gift...


I've always wanted to try a sleeping mask not did I only got 1 but 3 hahahahah. Excited to try the Wine Jelly Sleeping mask.


So Belles!! What are you waiting for.. Go down to your nearest Innisfree Store and grab those Emoji No-Sebum Mineral Powder.

Till my next adventure! Be courageous, Kind and a blessing to everyone you meet.

Happy Tummy: Mad for Garlic (Suntec City)


Been awhile since I posted a Happy Tummy series...well frankly I have tons of Happy Tummy adventures but somehow I haven't gotten the time to upload it yet hahahahahah...lazy me.


Anyways, I and my brother Phlebas decided to watch a movie at Suntec City..the Ghost in a shell. and since I was craving for some pasta I asked him to go to Mad for Garlic one of our favorite joint in Suntec. Which made me wonder why I haven't written about it hahahahah...so here it is.


What did we order...


For starters



Saute di Cozze Bianco sgd 32
It's basically black mussels in cream sauce which is delish don't be alarmed about the chilli that you see, it's not spicy. If my brother could eat it then I am sure it's not spicy hahahahha..what makes this one of our favorite is because of the cream sauce which is heavenly the onions and garlic and other spices will make you want to slurp that sauce.



and the second starter is...



Dracula Killer sgd 13.50
Oh how to I start??? you just have to give this a try especially if you love garlic. The garlic is sweet and creamy, eating it in between a baguette is again awesome..



And for the mains...

These pasta dish is creamy, the crab and lobster is cooked well tender and seasoned well.The garlic cream sauce is delish, creamy and the garlic flavour is not too empowering. I can't finish this so I will recommend to share it.



Crab and Lobster Pasta sgd 23.50
and for my brother he got this steak, this is heaven, the angus beef is tender you actually don't need the steak knife for this hahahahah you could just use a regular knife and fork. The meat is cooked well and its on top of a bed of sauted onions topped off with minced garlic and garlic flakes, we didn't need to worry about our BP when we were devouring this hahahahahahaha.

Beauty: GARNIER SKINACTIVE BB CREAM (5-IN-1 SKIN PERFECTOR BB CREAM OIL-FREE - LIGHT/MEDIUM)


And my search for my BB cream continues. Haiz!! I was loving my TROIAREUKE Acsen A+ Cushion but then I had this sports event that I was sunburned and yes I did use sunscreen and sunblock alhough being me I forgot to re-apply every 2 hours hahahahhaha and unfortunately now it's cushion was too white or bright for my current skin tone does not match my arms and the funny thing was it was my brother who told me that the cushion is too white and he told me this info before I left the house Waaaaaaaah!! I can't fix it for I was running late hahahahahhaah...

Anyways on the same day I went to Watson's and picked this baby up, I read some good reviews on it so decided to give it a try and for $19.90 why not...I am desperate.



They claimed:

Garnier's NEW BB Creams, our daily moisturizers with skin-perfecting coverage are built to deliver multiple benefits in one prooduct. 

This oil-free formula with Mineral Perlite, Antioxidant Wild Berry and tinted mineral pigments is designed for oily-to-combination skin to give five skin-perfecting benefits: controls shine, minimizes pores, evens skin tone, hydrates and helps prevent sunburn. 
Your quick & easy way to get a shine-free, more evenly-toned complexion!

Magic words for me is shine free!!!! hahahahah well evening out the skin tone is a plus too.

The packaging is your normal squeeze tube type which was fine for me.



Squeezed some amount on the back of my hand. The consistency is quite watery than the BB creams that I've tried. 


It does spread out easily and been absorbed quickly. There is this chemically smell like those plastic balloon toys that we used to play hahahahha once you squeezed it out but then disappears once you massaged or pat it in the smells becomes like a sunscreen smell which is fine.



Now time for me to try it on hahahahahaha...and oh my did it shocked me once I massaged and tap it into my face...my face turned white..but don't panic it will mellow down after a few seconds. I think it's because of the SPF I am wearing an SPF 50 sunblock under it hahahhahaha.



So here is how it performed. I went out with my brother Phlebas to watch the movie Ghost in the shell and we also had dinner.We left the house around 4pm and was back after 10 pm.

It is light on the skin frankly so light that I love it. Even upon first application it didn't feel sticky. And I like the finish that gives my skin, it did even out my skin tone the redness on my face was covered and my pores!!! it did cover it up a bit. And it did brighten my complexion. 



Well, you guys know that I am an oily person so by dinner there's a bit of shine but there is still a bit of coverage left.. during dinner I did try not to pat the oiliness on my face. 



I am definitely going to wear this daily maybe even alternate it with my current cushion once I get my old skin tone.. but for now I will continue to use it, although need to pat some oil out once in awhile. Wearing it as it is I am loving it.

If you would like to try the Garnier Skin Active BB cream (5-IN-1 SKIN PERFECTOR BB CREAM OIL-FREE - LIGHT/MEDIUM)for yourselves it is available is selected Watson's shop or you could buy them on their online shop HERE.

How about you Belles!! what is your go to BB cream when you're sun burned?

Till my next adventure!! Be courageous, kind and a blessing to everyone you meet.
